LouvreBack to Paris
Located in the very heart of Paris’ Right Bank, our Louvre two-bedroom apartment with private terrace and panoramic Paris views is a comfortable and central vacation rental, a true holiday haven. From your charming short-term rental you are an easy walk to the Louvre, the Seine river, Palais Royal gardens, Ile de la Cité, and Notre Dame cathedral, and mere minutes from the exciting Marais district. This wonderful neighborhood offers endless options for food, nightlife, and entertainment.
Entering the flat by elevator and up a short flight of stairs, you will first discover the cozy first bedroom with a high quality double bed. This bedroom gives out on the building’s internal courtyard, making it a perfect option for a restful night.
Heading up the apartment’s inner staircase, paved in original 18th century terracotta tiles, you will discover the modern stainless steel kitchen, complete with all the appliances needed for home-cooked meals made with your fresh market finds. Behind you, you will find a hallway leading to the fully- outfitted bathroom, complete with spacious rainshower. Just beyond the kitchen, the spacious dining and living room area is a warm, open space to rest, relax, and entertain. Take in the spectacular views of the St.-Eustache and Sacré Coeur cathedrals as you dine on the Le Corbusier glass-top table or lounge on the generous- sized sofa.
The master bedroom is perched on an airy mezzanine a short flight of stairs above the living room. Situated at the top of this building, your bedroom is both bright and quiet, and offers a queen-sized bed with high quality linens. Even better, just off the master bedroom you will find the gorgeous rooftop terrace. With a table seating four and two lounge chairs, this exceptionally rare terrace offers a 360° view of Paris’ legendary rooftop landscape. Among slate roofs and chimney pots, spot the Eiffel Tower, the Pompidou Center, and the Hôtel de Ville. All of central Paris lies beneath you, ready to be explored.

This apartment was fabulous! We loved everything about it and were so grateful to be able to call it "home" during our time in Paris. The location was perfect - close to the Metro, walking distance to shops, museums and restaurants. The building was charming and the architecture stunning. The apartment was perfectly appointed and we had everything we could possibly need from extra linens, to guide books to umbrellas. The Haven In team went above and beyond to help us feel welcome and answer questions. We cannot say enough good things about our experience. Thank you!!!!
I just wanted to say thank you for everything. We had an amazing trip to Paris. The staff at Haven In were so responsive and professional. They made the process of booking the apartment easy and enjoyable. They were even able to accommodate our fast track schedule; thank you! The apartment (Louvre) was amazing. The views from the rooftop terrace were spectacular. The apartment itself was so charming and well appointed. It was very close to the Louvre and so many other wonderful places. A Metro stop just around the corner helped us explore everything within the City and beyond. The neighborhood fruit market and boulangerie, just steps from the apartment were incredible. The comice pears and wonderful bread and pastries were especially delicious! It was a trip of a lifetime for us all. We will remember it always. We hope to stay at another Haven In property again in the near future. The kids are already planning our next adventure! Thank you again for everything.
The apartment is amazing! I love going up on the deck and looking at the Eiffel Tower! Our stay has been great! I am really sad to leave! I will miss Paris and this apartment!
Had a fabulous stay in this outstanding apartment for 2 weeks. Walked everywhere, saw everything, ate + drank to our heart's content. Couldn't have been better. We have travelled extensively for the last 6 years. France 4 times, UK twice, Spain, Portugal, and Morocco. This is the best place we have ever had anywhere!! Thanks to Loredana and special thanks to Vincent.
We enjoyed our stay very much! We enjoyed our coffee + wine on the deck. The apartment is very conveniently located. Local shops + restaurants were fantastic. Loredana, thank you for a warm welcome. A couple of rainy days, but it came + went very quickly. Kids were shy to speak their French, but they warmed up. The yummy French french fries were a request for every meal. Isabel from the Haven in Paris babysitter list baby sat the kids a couple of days and one evening. The kids adored her + it gave us a chance for a date night + a couple of city runs + kidless museum visits. My husband and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary over our vacation here and we're so happy we did. Thank you for a wonderful stay. A bientot Paris!
This is the second time we have rented with Haven in Paris and we would do it again for sure. The staff is courteous, knowledgeable, and makes the entire process very easy. The apartments we have stayed in were both beautiful, clean, well appointed, and in great locations. One of my favorite reasons to stay with HIP is they make it really easy and high quality. From the reservation process to the amenities on arrival, all you have to do is show up and enjoy. The little things, like having coffee and tea, soft towels, and a laundry soap on site, mean I don't have to worry about getting set up. I arrive and am ready to relax. Extra comforts, such as a portable fan, laptop computer, and quality linens make the stay very comfortable. We also hired driver, David, and he was wonderful. Prompt, courteous, excellent driving in some harrowing traffic, clean and comfortable car.
We've had magic days in Paris and the apartment is so well located that we did almost everything walking! I recommend walking on rue Montmartre between Etienne Marcel (great restos, great stores!). Thank you for your attention, Loredana! Hope to be with you again!
Thank you for a lovely stay! We loved the views of Paris at night, the bakery next door, and enjoying morning coffee on your beautiful terrace. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
We had a great stay in Paris!! The Haven in Paris apartment (or flat) was the perfect home base. So close to the Louvre & the metro. We highly recommend the Bistrot du 1er for dinner. It is a block down if you go left out of the front door. Tres bien et fantastique! The terrace is delightful and we recommend getting a bottle of wine across the street and enjoying it al fresco! A perfect honeymoon. Merci beaucoup!
Many a hotel staying in Paris, however, this was our first apartment stay. And what a fabulous time it's been! Loved the market shopping and "staying in" dining experience. Even came to love (mmm, accept?) those five flights of stairs :) Thanks for a wonderful "home away from home."
Thank you for a lovely stay! We really enjoyed Paris and the apartment was very conveniently located. It is close to all the major attractions and it has everything you need. We would recommend it anytime! Thank you Loredana and Haven in Paris for making our trip memorable.
The Louvre apartment had a very nice terrace. The beds were comfortable. Nice shower. The apartment was very nice but I would not recommend it for young children. Note from Haven in Paris: Thank you for your comments Lisa! We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It is true that there are lots of stairs in this apartment which may not be suitable for small children or anyone who has issues climbing stairs. We do have a note about this in the apartment description and appreciate you mentioning this here as well.
Our stay at the Louvre apartment and the experience with HIP team was one of my best renting experience so far! We were truly impressed with the cleanliness of the apartment and the thoughtfulness that every detail has been put into the apartment that ensures a home-feeling for the guests. The driver Gerome picked us up at the airport and kindly helped us in contacting the greeter in the apartment and lifting our luggages through the stairs. Upon arrival, Jannet our greeter was extremely helpful in introducing almost everything inside the apartment and gave us nice tips in terms of traveling around Paris. Location of the apartment was perfect! It was 10 min walk to the Lourve and 5 min to Metro station. Really convenient neighborhood with loads of Cafes and boutiques for a nice walk locally. Our favourate was the patisserie downstairs to the left. They sell really good baguettes and cakes and we just couldn't resit to take a few everyday during our stay! The view of a cathedral out of the window was fantastic!
Dear Haven in Paris, thank you for a great trip. I really enjoyed having Boulangerie Julien downstairs and the fruit market across the street. I also enjoyed living at the RER and metro stop Chatelet Les Halles because it has a lot of trains to change to. It's very useful to live on the street of the Louvre. I liked looking at the art work. Finally, if you are at the Louvre and it's snack time, go to Angelina for some of the best hot chocolate in the world. From, Alice (age 7)
Thank you Haven in Paris for a perfect place to stay during our first trip to Paris. The Louvre apartment is a wonderful spot for families. We enjoyed daily breakfast and many dinners on the balcony and being able to walk a few blocks to the Louvre. We definitely suggest getting the Paris Museum Pass. It was excellent value and it enabled us to skip many long lines. The Paris Metro is incredible and the apartment is convenient for riding and walking everywhere. The ice cream on Ile St Louis is amazing. We also suggest a day trip to Giverny after seeing the Musee D'Orsay and Orangerie. Our favorite was the Louvre, especially the Richelieu Wing. We would suggest this apartment to anyone looking for a comfortable, peaceful place to stay while touring this beautiful city. We hope to return again someday!
We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Louvre apartment. Thanks Loredana! Who would have predicted a heat wave in Paris but nothing could spoil our time here. We would thoroughly recommend the apartment to friends and others and hope to one day be back.
We loved our 3 week stay! The cozy little apartment is perfectly located and we could not be happier with our choice. It was always wonderful to arrive back home after 6-10 mile walks around Paris. My legs got all the work out necessary. One of the best discoveries was a coffeehouse called Anticafe on rue Richelieu. Take a left on rue St. Honore and a right turn just after the colored glass metro stop after Palais Royal and Comedie Francaise. They change 4 euro per hour for all you can drink cappuccinos & lattes, plus snacks (including toast & madelines). Stroll through the gardens of the Palais Royal afterwards. This was our morning routine. Very good pizza around the corner at Enza & Famiglia. So happy to have an apartment where everything actually works! Thank you, Loredana & Vincent!
The location and facilities were exceptional. The hospitality of our host was warm and welcome. Looking forward to a new opportunity to stay again.
The flat was wonderful. As I said to Loredana, we felt at home within minutes of entering the apartment. One thing I can think of to improve on is a slightly better light in the bathroom for applying make-up and shaving. I was very happy that there were appliance/electronic manuals - they always make it so much easier to figure out machines that I am unfamiliar with using. Though Loredana did show me how to use them, my brain is like a sieve. Another thing would be possibly having an English movie channel on the TV, (probably this would only be helpful for longer stay visitors). Loredana is a gem. She was so helpful with us and I knew I could call on here if I had any problems. Due to my flight being late she wasn't at the apartment when we arrived but she arranged for the cleaner, Hon, to wait for us (what a nice man he is). She arrived about 10 minutes later with a beautiful bouquet of flowers and a fine bottle of wine. She arranged a van taxi to take us to the airport and gave us suggestions for going out for tea. We didn't use any of the special services. The apartment was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the cleaners also came during our stay giving us fresh linens and towels. Overall, our holiday was wonderful and we do appreciate Haven in Paris for your faultless booking process and follow-ups and Loredana for making our stay so lovely. Thank you so much.
First of all, I would like to say on behalf of myself and my family that we had a FANTASTIC two weeks in PARIS and much of that was due to our Louvre apartment! LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The Louvre apartment location is a dream for visiting and walking Paris. You can walk practically anywhere in Paris from this apartment - and we did! The Louvre (two minutes away), Eiffel Tower, Musee D'Orsay, Notre Dame, the Left Bank and the Marais district are all withing walking distance. The apartment is spacious, charming and the roof top deck is stunning! Every moment we could, we would bring meals, a book, wine and sit and look over the rooftops of Paris - including a fabulous view of the Pompideau (3 blocks away) and of course Sacre Coeur and the sparkling lights of the Eiffel Tower every night! Literally, this apartment MADE our two week vacation in Paris perfect. There is a fantastic bakery 2 doors away, a green grocer on the corner and has restaurants, banks all readily available. The metro is literally a one minute walk away, which made it extremely convenient. We had no concerns walking around at night and the neighborhood always had pedestrians, bars and activity. I can't recommend this specific apartment enough - we would go back in a heartbeat!
What a fabulous week in Paris - just "being." Most comfortable apartment ever - in the best location. All owners recommendations very valuable. Especially enjoyed Saveuers d'Atika in rue de Tournelles (rather small restaurant in the street). Flowers on arrival were a nice touch. Thank you & a bientot!
Thank you for our wonderful holiday in Paris. Loredana is an absolute gem and the apartment felt like home from the moment we stepped in to it. I will be recommending Haven in Paris to anyone who is thinking about a holiday in Paris. Thank you again.
Our stay at "Louvre" has been wonderful. Paris is such an enchanting city filled with many adventures. The location of the apartment was perfect. You can walk to almost anything in Paris from here. We went to many amazing restaurants such as: Bistrot du 1 - great food & amazing service Au Pied de Cochon - very good good if you are willing to spend a bit more Bistro Des Halles - reasonable prices and very good French food Thank you so much Loredana for all your help! Our stay in Paris will be one adventure we will never forget! P.S. It pays off to get the museum pass.
We had an amazing time in Paris and the apartment was just great. Location was perfect and the apartment was very comfortable. We really enjoyed the burgers at 'Bistro Burger' and would recommend this restaurant for family eating. Thanks Loredana for your help.
We had a wonderful stay - glorious lunch + wine on roof terrace, so close + convenient for museums + Notre Dame. A wonderful time we will always remember. PS thanks Loredana for all your help + great advice.
I had a great time staying in this room. I liked going to the top of our balcony and watching the Eiffel tower light up at night. My favorite restaurant we went to was Coffee Parisien. I also liked going to the Arc de Triomphe. I really like Paris. My favorite breakfast place here is Le Pain Quotidien. It has the best waffle! Hope we see you soon. From, The M. Family
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The nearby bakeries and shops are convenient, the apartment very comfortable, and the terrace and air flow from open windows make it perfect to rest and relax. Thanks to Loredana and HiP for the always prompt responses, attentiveness to detail, and knowledgeable information - this is what great service feels like! We would easily stay again with HiP and recommend to family and friends.
Really enjoyed our stay here. We had fantastic weather, so breakfast on the terrace was a daily event - very special. Apartment very comfortable - great light & views and good to come back to at the end of the day. As usual, HiP has delivered on all counts - thank you. Loredana made us feel very welcome. Great location. We are planning our next trip!
What a wonderful week we've had in Paris! The Louvre apartment was so comfortable, just like a home away from home. Our two children really appreciated the extra space and we've appreciated a typical Parisian experience with the wonderful local shops and yummy restaurants. A big thank you to Loredana and Haven in Paris for this week. We will definitely bring back great memories of our stay here and can't wait to return again to Paris!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! This truly served as a haven and home away from home while in Paris.
If you are looking for a superior service and stress free rental process with a reputable professional company who do genuinely good work then please book with HiP. We had a wonderful time in Paris in the Louvre apartment. To be honest it was actually better than in the photos and met our criteria of Parisian charm, brilliant location coupled with everyday practicalities ( eg washing machine/dryer) The apartment is very suitable for families as there is very good bedroom separation and its quite big if you include the gorgeous balcony that we had some delightful breakfasts on. Speaking of that , given food is a big reason for visiting France, there are 2 boulangeries within 2 mins walk, a supermarket, fruit shop across the road and many restaurants. Our kids still miss their morning baguette!
Fantastic apartment with everything we needed for a wonderful holiday right in the centre of Paris. Loved breakfast and afternoon drinks up on the balcony! Loredana did a fantastic job explaining everything to us and keeping in touch during our week to make sure all was okay. Can't wait to come back.
The accommodation was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. Of course, our girls loved seeing the Eiffel Tower ablaze each evening from the terrace. The flat itself was well-fitted and the location was ideal. Our girls were troopers as we traipsed all over Paris. However, they were exceptionally happy when we returned to Rue St. Honore and made our way to Boulangerie Julien where the madame always gave them an extra patisserie. Thanks so much HiP! We couldn't have been happier with the apartment and the service.
The apartment was quintessentially Parisien, with narrow crooked stairs and wonderful views. The breakfasts we shared on the terrace remain glorious memories and I would stay there again without hesitation. Everything about the process was first class, with consideration shown from the team before, during and after the stay. All assistance was available and thanks to HIP team for making Paris so easy.
Location of property was fantastic. Able to walk to many places we wanted to see. Apartment nicely stocked with basics. Person who greeted us was easy to reach and flexible with our late arrival and our departure. Phone service to US a huge bonus since we didn't have international plans on our cell phones. Apartment was very clean and spacious.
The property was in a perfect location. Central and near a train station. The apartment was very comfortable and decorated to a high standard. Having a rooftop terrace was such a bonus and we really enjoyed looking out over central Paris rooftops. The 2nd bedroom was compact and bijou. So many nearby restaurants to choose from and a well equipped kitchen for days when you want to eat in. I would recommend this apartment and hope to return one day.
We have really enjoyed our stay in this apartment over the last week. It was a nice touch to have so many essentials provided in the kitchen and laundry, etc. The apartment is indeed in a most convenient place in Paris. We had no trouble accessing places of interest.
What a fantastic apartment in a fantastic location. We 4 girls had a blast and this was the ideal setting for our Paris adventure. A sophisticated apartment that suited us perfectly. The cute roof terrace was a bonus we really enjoyed. Julie
This flat was beyond my expectations. So perfectly outfitted. If only there were fewer steps, but they helped work off the incredible lunch food that we have been consuming each day. Go to La Fumoir for brunch. It is amazing. And Petit Chatelet near St. Michel place for a truly French dinner. If you are here on a Saturday in August go see the fountains and fireworks at Versailles. Enjoy la belle cite!
My experience with Haven in Paris and the Louvre apartment are both to be recommended. The apartment is in a great position, close to shops and attractions. It does have a lot of steps to negotiate with suitcases but they were not a problem after that. I really enjoyed the late summer nights on the roof top balcony with a glass of wine.
Thank you Loredana and HiP Team! What a wonderful apartment located in such a great location. The apartment is lovely, clean, and well taken care of. (I am very much into cleanliness and details and was impressed with everything). Loredana, thank you for making our stay in Paris a memorable one. The fresh flowers and bottle of wine was also a very nice touch. After a long day of walking and touring this beautiful city, it was wonderful returning to such a lovely apartment. Can't wait to come back and will definitely book again with HiP. Until next time!
We knew from the beginning contact emails that everything would go smoothly with our little Paris "bijou." The professional and very attentive team members left nothing to chance and only strive to achieve the satisfaction of HiP's guests. I love that all of you at HiP are so willing to “get your good better, and your better best”. Loredana too was efficient, kind, and friendly in her style while ensuring we understood the details of running the apartment effortlessly. These two experiences combined with the cleanliness and fabulous location of the apartment gave us a relaxing and memorable vacation in Paris. Thank you. We look forward to booking with HiP again. Words are inadequate to fully describe how grateful we are that you work on the behalf of your guests with such integrity. The vibe you emanate exudes greatness.
The apartment is centrally located for exploring Paris. A major Metro hub is just across the street. The best croissants are three doors down and the fruit and vegetable shop is on the corner. Fellini's Italian restaurant is a charming late night option for dinner and is only a block away. The outdoor terrace is one of the highlights of the apartment. (But be careful on the steep stairs, especially in socks, as they are a little slippery.) HiP has excellent customer service and they are very responsive to any inquiries! This is my second stay with them and I highly recommend the company and the apartment!
We had a fantastic stay at this lovely apartment. It was indeed a haven to which to return after a long day of touring the city. We will miss gazing at the Sacre Coeur in the evening and feasting on the baguettes from Julien's. Hoping to return for a future stay!
What a beautiful apartment! Thank you so much for everything, we can't wait to come back!
We had a great time. Lots of space. We made good use of the terrace, sometimes in our coats watching the Tour Eiffel blinking away. On the same block is the best bakery, we bought rolls and bread every day and sometimes dessert. The fruits and veggie guy is on the corner, we went there most days too. Three blocks to the river, two blocks to the Louvre, close to Notre Dame. We walked everywhere.
Loredana Celi was wonderful. I liked having her support as she provided useful contacts such as English speaking drivers. We were thrilled to find the kitchen stocked with useful things like coffee. The apartment was well-appointed with good guide books, interesting art - very pleasing. Good quality linens and towels. SUGGESTION: folding luggage racks. Of course, one does not put luggage on the bed, but there needs to be a place to put a suitcase. Kneeling on the floor is not good.
Everything was okay with this Paris apartment. Haven in Paris team was very kind and always gave me quick and helpful feedback and confirmation. David (Taxi service HIP recommend) and our greeters were great and they're always ready to help us. Thanks to them again. We loved the Louvre apartment as well. The property was good as described in the Haven in Paris website :)
We had a wonderful stay in the Louvre property. We thought we might miss the Marais, our usual haunt, but we never did. The apartment was very comfortable and we wish we were still there. The stairs in the building proper were a little terrifying to me, while my husband worried about the stairs to the loft bedroom, especially in the middle of the night. However, these stair fears would not stop us from taking the apartment again. It is hard to beat the location. Loredana did not have to do much for us, except hand over the keys, since we are pretty well acquainted with Paris, but she did provide us with Rue Montorgueil, which was invaluable. And we knew she would be available if we needed anything. This stay in Paris has made us eager to rent there again, and we cannot wait to see Tuscany in May.
Thank you for the most wonderful experience, from arranging the reservation to Loredana's warm reception. The amenities were fantastic and due to the central location, it was easy to travel around the city on foot. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks.
Thank you Loredana for your gracious welcome and good instructions. The apartment was ideal - and the bed downstairs so comfortable that we had difficulty dragging our teenager out of it! We hope to be back soon. "We love Paris in the winer... when it drizzles..."
Dear Loredana and Haven in Paris team. Thank you for the most wonderful experience, from arranging the reservation and Loredana's warm reception. The amenities were fantastic and due to the central location it was easy to travel around the city on foot. We are already looking forward to our next visit. Many thanks!
What a magical week in Paris! From the segway tour, to roaming the art galleries, and everything in between - our stay has been perfect! The apartment was just the ideal place to return after a long day full of walking, even though we made ourselves walk up the stairs to try and burn off those scrumptious pastries! Many thanks to the Haven in Paris team for making our stay in Paris more incredible than we could have hoped.
Nice apartment with a great view. Cosy little terracce. The apartment may not be suitable for families with small children or elderly, because of the different levels. But clean and well equipped.
Thank you for the comfortable, cozy stay in this beautiful apartment! Makes me wish I lived here!
We were met warmly by our greeter, and as there were no guests the night before allowed to settle in by 10am which was much appreciated after 36 hours of travel! The location is great, easy to access metro to get around and lots of beautiful walks along the Seine. The Boulangerie downstairs was especially great and we had pain au chocolat for breakfast every morning. We had ample room for our family of four, and especially enjoyed the view from the roof garden.
Such a lovely and comfortable apartment! A very cozy place to return to after all day touring in the city. We enjoyed very much the neighborhood stops such as the corner produce market, Julien Bakery, and especially the restaurant Le Petit Mâchon. Thanks, Haven in Paris, for a great experience.
I was very impressed with Haven in Paris. We had a wonderful greeter who was very thorough. She went over everything in the apartment and guided me around the neighborhood. The apartment was everything I had hoped for and more. It was very special to be given flowers and wine on arrival in addition to the usual necessities.
Todo fue excelente, muchas gracias!.
My wife and I (56 and 59) visited with her older (79 and 76) parents for a week in early April, 2013. The apartment is ideal for exploring Paris and all its attractions. It is within ~300 yds of the Louvre, a couple of blocks to the Seine, and an easy walk to Notre Dame cathedral, among other things. It's also just 100 yds from the entrance to the La Halle Metro station, which links to TGV and RER services. And, dangerously, it's just two doors down Rue St Honore to an award-winning boulangerie and other fresh food vendors. Good incentive to do lots of walking! The apartment itself is very nice, with great views and a terrace (which we never used due to the unseasonably cold weather during our stay). There is a small lift from the ground floor that is helpful in getting luggage up to the last level, from which you'll need to manually heft it the rest of the way. The apartment layout is basically tri-level, with a small but serviceable bedroom (with a full bed) on the first level just inside the entry door. The main level is up a set of (slick and uneven) steps, where the small kitchen and living/dining areas are found. Then, up a third set of steps is the loft, with a queen-sized bed and access to the terrace. The steps up to the loft are open to the living room, but there is a handrail here that is helpful. The linens and towels are high quality and felt great after our long days of ambling around the city. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was also a plus, as was the towel warmer. The apartment had wifi with a strong signal that worked well throughout the unit. The kitchenware and utensils were nice, though it would be good to have some reasonable-quality knives available. Oddly, we were never able to get the microwave oven to work -- though it would have been helpful, it didn't ruin our trip! Our greeter, Roger, was great. He was helpful, accommodating and had insightful advice about the city. We left feeling we'd made a new friend. Something to consider: the apartment is on the 5th/6th floor, and many of the flights of steps up to the apartment are slanted, slick and uneven. The footing has a sense of being somewhat treacherous. Using the lift certainly helps, but even so, after exiting it, you must descend a short flight to a small landing and then climb a short, narrow flight to get to the unit. Once inside, there's one more flight of old, off-kilter steps to negotiate to get to the main floor. This is in no way a fatal flaw, but if you are traveling with older folks or someone who is not too steady on their feet, we suggest you give this some consideration. We were traveling with older parents and had to be continuously cautious with the steps. (We have suggested to the Haven In Paris folks that some non-slip appliqué on the steps would be helpful.) So, all in all, we had a wonderful stay and we recommend both HIP and the Louvre Apartment. Be aware of the stairs as described above and if this is not an issue for you, this unit will provide an excellent base from which to explore this beautiful and intoxicating city!
We have felt completely at home in this wonderful apartment. It had everything we needed to be comfortable - rooftop views, a bonus! Accessibility to everything, Julian's Bakery, beautiful apartment - perfect vacation. Thanks to Roger for the warm welcome and send off!
We have had a wonderful time in Paris and this apartment. Despite the cold weather, it was always good to return to the warmth and comfort of "Louvre." We would recommend two amazing bistros - Albion & L'Office - best food!! The local deli & bakery were also big hits. Thanks to Roger & David who gave us a warm welcome and helped us with our luggage.
Thank you for allowing us to stay in this beautiful apartment once again.
The apartment is in one of the best locations we have stayed in Paris. It really is in walking distance to much of the best Paris has to offer in terms of sights, museums & restaurants. The loft bedroom was comfortable & the views of the balcony were a treat. This is our second experience booking with HIP & they are professional & friendly. I would recommend them to any family or friends going to Paris & looking for more space than what you get in a hotel room.
We do really satisfy with our stay in louvre, Roger was very helpful and he explained the apartment and the surroundment with detail. great location, near to metro, shopping center, market, and julieeen:), we do really love the bread in julien:). the apartment was very clean n the looks was exactly the same with the internet, our son Jerry was very happy to see through the center window in the living room:) and.... feels like home to us:)... thank you HIP n thank you Roger...
We had an absolutely wonderful first visit to Paris! Everyone on the Haven in Paris team was great which made the reservation process very easy & confidence inspiring. We also felt very supported throughout our stay, that is if anything were to go wrong, we knew that help would be nearby. Roger, our greeter, was very friendly and gave us a quick intro to the local area. The apartment was exactly as we expected and its location was ideal in that it was walking distance to the Louvre and a block away from the Metro. The apartment was clean, cozy and in good shape. Lastly, David, our driver to/from the airport, was great. He met us promptly at the airport and gave us our first introduction to Paris. Overall, we now have great memories of Paris and part of that is due to Haven in Paris!
We had a wonderful stay at HiP's Louvre property. It was very comfortable and did not disappoint. We had a problem one evening with no hot water. I wrote to Haven in Paris immediately and the plumber was there early the next day. We couldn't have asked for quicker service. (Ironically, my business partner was staying in another Parisian apartment rented through another agency and had no hot water that same evening. She never got a response from her rental agency, so not all agencies provide such quality service.) This is the second time we've rented an apartment through HiP and both were wonderful.
The apartment is in a very convenient location allowing walking visits to the Louvre and the Eiffel Tower. Metro access is just a few blocks away. Our greeter was most pleasant and courteous and took the time to show us all the amenities in the apartment so we felt comfortable with everything. Having a kitchen was a great convenience and the apartment overall is very comfortable, with wonderful views. Supermarkets, vegetable and fruit market, bread and pastry shops all within one block made for relaxing evenings in the apartment with wine, bread, cheese, and desserts.
Bonjour! I had a wonderful stay in this lovely apartment. The location was fantastic. I enjoyed fresh croissants each morning from Chez Juilan, this close proximity to shopping, dining and museums. Don't pass up a meal at George's in the Pompidou or Costes. Also be sure to pick up some cheese from the corner shop for a no-fuss meal. Thank you, Haven, for a great experience! See you again soon!
We just returned to our home in Southern California after staying in your Louvre Apartment, Paris. Everything was perfect and in order. Our greeter, Roger Fountain, was completely courteous, punctual, and helpful in many ways. The limo service you suggested, David Partouch, was also punctual (actually early--waiting for us outside the apt) for our early morning pickup, relieving what would have otherwise been a stressful time at CDG Airport. We will use you again, in Paris and other locations we enjoy. Thank you for such a wonderful experience. The central location made everything we were interested in so nicely accessible.
As always, a wonderful experience. Impeccable service, perfect apartments, great locations. I cannot recommend it enough.
What a beautiful apartment to match an equally breathtaking city! Thank you for providing such a wonderful place - we thoroughly enjoyed our time here. For the best (and possibly the biggest) meringue, stop by R Bertrand, near Notre Dame, on Rue Lagrange. They also have delicious bakery treats. From there, Saint Chapelle is a short walk away. Its stained glass is incredible, making it an underrated gem of a church. We truly cannot wait to visit Paris again! Thanks again.
Wonderful experience in this one-of-a-kind apartment. The four of us were very comfortable and happy here. Our youngest especially loved the middle window over the street. It was a perfect place in an amazing neighborhood. We loved the bakery and the fruit stand here. Just great! Thank you.
Beautiful apartment in a great location. Bit of effort to get the luggage up the stairs but small price to pay. The ambience of the local area was brilliant.
The HIP team was a pleasure to work with. They were quick to respond to queries and questions. The process was very smooth. Our greeter, Christi, was great. I would highly recommend HIP to friends and family. The apartment was very lovely, centrally located, and worked well for our family of four. It was a welcoming sanctuary after long days of walking around. We especially loved hanging out on the rooftop terrace with fresh croissants, pan au chocolat, fruit from the market, and coffee. The apartment does have lots of stairs and I would recommend small luggage for everyone.
Loredana was our greeter in Paris and she was just divine. She welcomed us with a smile that was genuine. She provided us with invaluable tips not only for Paris but for other destinations from her own experience. I have nothing but paise for her extremely professional service. Even though we didn't use the service free phone calls to Australia, that was a bonus.
We had a marvelous time in Paris in this superb flat. It was magical to return here after a busy day taking in the sights and delicious food. Thank you for a memorable experience!
What a lovely, elegant apartment! The views are spectacular...what more could one desire? And the street scene provides constant entertainment. We almost wish there wasn't so much to see/do; we could just stay here and "chill." Loredana...you're the best.
"As a world traveler I understand the importance of packing everyday with activities to maximize the visit, thus the location of this apartment was crutial for me to visit all atractions. This is my first but not last visit to Paris. I will highly recommend this apartment to friends and relatives. I love the way you maximize the space and the use of natural light PS: I love the elevator after a long day of cultural adventure" -M.C. Santana "I love the neighborhood, it could not be better!" -Maria Elena Santana "I love the beautiful renovated apartment, a wonderful mix of old world charm and modern convenience. The location could not be better!" -John Parham "Love how organized everybody at Haven in Paris has been since we booked this apartment, thank you for taking care of all the details, as a busy enterpreneur, I needed to be reminded of deadlines along the way. Roger and Loredana have been great greeters. The apartment is everything I expected and then some as we could get from cheese to bread and fresh fruits to excellent access to subway at a hand's reach. We came to celebrate our younger sister's birthday, and we cannot wait to bring our children to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary next year. We also LOVE your blog, and we followed many of your cool tips on our trip! Great job! PS: We do recommend to install a full length mirror on a wall, perhaps next to the door in the dining room, to check yourself before heading out." -Maruchi Santana
Our stay was ideal. Thank you Haven in Paris!
We think the apartment is lovely, charming, clean, well located. However, we would not rent the apt. again because the bathroom is too far away from the bedroom. Also, there are too many stairs from the elevator. NOTE from HiP: This is not an apartment appropriate for people who have problems climbing stairs. The bathroom is down the stairs from the main bedroom and up the stairs from the second bedroom.
Haven in Paris was WONDERFUL to work with. When a friend's apartment didn't work out, she contacted Haven and they sent us a list of apartments that WERE available. Our trip (our honeymoon!) was incredible. The apartment was perfect for our 11 day trip as we had room to spread out and feel like we were living in Paris and not just visiting. The Louvre apartment was modern and very Parisian at the same time. We loved it!
Our apartment was wonderful. It looked exactly as it did on the website. It was clean, modern, luxurious and beautiful.
Everything was great. Better instructions for use of the combo microwave / conventional oven would be a help to future users. We had a lovely time, and our greeter, Regina, was charming and very helpful. NOTE FROM HIP: We have added better instructions for the oven to the apartment guidebook.
My rental experience with Haven in Paris was the best I've found. I often use VRBO, but this was much better! My emails were answered very promptly and they often would call me to make sure that I was satisfied with the answer to a question. I have never received such excellent, customized service. They were very prompt in quickly arranging an alternative property when an unexpected situation arose that was out of anyone's control. I had never rented an apartment in Paris and was a lilttle hesitant to try it, but I had such a reliable experience with this company and highly recommend it! Regina (our greeter) was delightful and very helpful! She helped us with finding great streets and markets to explore and was invaluable in arranging our taxi for departure! Thank you so much for making our trip just perfect! I will be happy to talk with anyone considering you for a rental property!
The location of the apartment was wonderful, we really liked the neighborhood. The apartment was in excellent condition and very adequate for three female adults. The terrace was a real added bonus, the views were wonderful.
The apartment was just fabulous...met all of our needs, space, tons of light...amenities...well stocked kitchen, lots of towels, the terrace wonderful and the location was best of all...in the middle of all the action and right across the street from the metro. Can't wait to come back.
Un appartement magnifique, un accueil très chaleureux ! Nous reviendrons !
We fell in love with this apartment. The owner has exquisite taste. I would gladly stay here again.
Lovely Apt - a modern Parisian loft with all the luxuries required. The location of the apt is the most attractive feature! The owner has some excellent movies on DVDs.
The apartment was excellent! A terrific location within walking distance of the Louvre, Les Halles and half a block from the subway. The owner kindly met us upon our arrival and told us all about the neighborhood with suggestions for shopping and good places to eat! The apartment itself was spotless and fully equipped. We look forward to our next visit to Paris, to staying at this apartment and to sharing information about this apartment with our friends
The apartment was as described and in a perfect location. We had a great stay in Paris and loved the apartment.
