St Germain MazarineBack to Paris
This charming, one-bedroom long term Paris apartment rental is situated in the heart of St-Germain-des-Prés on the Left Bank of the Seine, one of Paris’ most central and sought-after neighborhoods, home of famous intellectuals and chic boutiques. The St-Germain Mazarine property is a gem of a Parisian pied-à-terre combining the best of French style with the comfort and convenience of quality, modern amenities.
Three flights up the staircase in a 17th-century building (sorry, no elevator), you are welcomed by the open living space, which includes a leather sofa, armchair, and spacious dining table. The modern furnishings create a striking contrast to the exposed wood beams that date back to the 1600s. An open kitchen, elegantly outfitted with sophisticated dark wood cabinets and a stone countertop, is fully equipped and will meet all your culinary needs. Double-paned windows, electric heat, and central air conditioning keep the apartment comfortable and quiet in any season.
The bedroom is a cozy space to relax and unwind and windows onto the interior courtyard ensure you will have a quiet night's sleep. Luxurious four-hundred thread count cotton linens and European down duvets and pillows provide comfort at its best. The full bathroom, connected to both the bedroom and the main living area, has contemporary fixtures including a large stone walk-in shower with a ceramic seat and rainshower.
The St-Germain Mazarine property is situated in one of the best locations from which to explore the city. You are within walking distance of countless museums and cultural landmarks: Musée d’Orsay, Sorbonne, Musée de Cluny, Jardin du Luxembourg, Latin Quarter. To the north of the property you will find the romantic Seine river and only a three-minute walk to the south is Boulevard St-Germain where you can enjoy the bustle of luxury shopping and famous cafés. When you start your day at the St-Germain Mazarine property, Paris is truly at your fingertips.

We absolutely loved this apartment. The location truly cannot be beat - it's a short walk to many places in the 5th-7th arrondissements, and only a few minutes walk across to the right bank as well. We hardly took the metro because of the excellent location. The apartment is exactly as described and the photos are very accurate (if anything, the main room is bigger in person than in the photos). The bedroom is quite small, as is to be expected from the description and Parisian rentals in general. We had a couple of very small problems with the iPad and Nespresso - the Haven In team was very quick to respond, especially considering they were such minor concerns. I couldn't recommend Haven In highly enough, and I hope to rent with the team again when we return to Paris.
This was our second stay in this apartment and it was just as good second time round. It is very comfortable and for what was quite a cold week in Paris warm and cozy - very important for us seeing we were coming from an Australian summer. The location is the best. The immediate area is full of life and within easy walking distance of many of Paris's notable sights.
We loved the St. Germain Market apartment! The location is incredible--right in the middle of our favorite area, filled with restaurants and cafes. Metro stops are nearby. The area is vibrant and busy, but the windows in the apartment block out the sound of the street. The apartment is beautifully appointed, with everything necessary for a comfortable stay. We were grateful for the AC on several days when the temperature climbed into the 80s. The bed was heavenly, and the sofa bed was quite comfortable. The climb to the 3rd French floor would make the apartment a poor choice for someone with physical limitations, but we didn't mind--it justified a second croissant or a Berthillon ice cream cone. Working with Haven in Paris was wonderfully easy. From the first inquiry to the check out process at the end of our stay, everyone with whom we interacted was polite and helpful, and the instructions were clear. We will happily stay in one of their apartments again!
Haven in Paris could not have made the reservation process easier, and their communication was excellent. Any questions I emailed, they answered within 24 hours. The pricing was very clear, and Haven in Paris was very flexible in letting us check in early. The apartment was absolutely beautiful and impeccably clean. We could not have felt more comfortable, and the apartment truly felt like a home away from home. This is a five-star property!
No comment on recommending apt. to others comes because of a selfish thing on my part. The more I talk up that apt. the less chance it will be available for me in the future. This rental period is a good example of that. I believe I was able to get 5 weeks the year before and not just 2. Therefore I hesitate placing great reviews online. Loredana was excellent as always,and Vincent is still doing a fantastic job maintaining the apt. and keeping it clean. I also have to add this year, Marc, the driver you recommended. He was very professional and informative I even used him for some day trips. And of course I have to thank the whole HIP 'crew' as to what an excellent organization they are. Thank you all so much. Thanks so much, Steve Selle A funny sidebar: I read an 'in apartment' customer review from this past year while I was there and it gave a glowing review on the choice of more than one type of coffee makers (one of which happens to be the one I bought last year!).
We were quite pleased with our stay. The apartment was exactly as described, and was very comfortable and convenient. We have been to Paris many times and found this location as good as anywhere we have ever stayed. The apartment was very clean and our greeter was very pleasant and helpful.
Had a wonderful stay at St Germain Market. We will definitely consider this flat when again in Paris. Location was central to most attractions and the neighborhood was great. Thanks to the staff for making our visit "tres bien!"
The property was exactly as depicted in the description and the pictures. It has been very well maintained by the owners and it was very easy to understand how everything worked, from the lighting to the appliances. If there was something that we needed it was easy to find. For example the comforter on the bed was too hot for us, so we found cotton blankets that perfectly suited our needs. The owners have left a wonderful manual that details everything about the property and also the nearby restaurants and services. This was very helpful. It is important to note that the apartment is up three flights of narrow, winding, uneven stairs and there is no elevator. This was not a problem for us, but if one had mobility issues it could be.
We can't say enough positive things about our stay! We were there two weeks and it was like a dream. We've seriously thought about how you can improve...and we have no recommendations. It was perfect! Loredana was wonderful. She was very helpful and had the place ready for us. We thought the croissants and flowers were especially nice and welcoming after our 16 hour trip. She was also terrific on our early departure. Because of the length of our stay, we had Vincent come to clean. He was great! Everything was perfect again when we got back that night. Needless to say, the property itself was ideal. The location, the quality of furnishings, amenities...it has everything. All the information you provided us, too, gave us a lot of comfort. It was truly our Haven in Paris. We can't wait to come back!
Overall we loved the location! We walked EVERYWHERE- even to Sacre Coeur! The cafes and restaurants were outstanding. Our favorite was La Jacobine a few steps away. Loved the heated towel rack in the bathroom and the light features in the shower and the bedroom floor- excellent idea!The building itself was quiet, we never saw any other tenants/owners nor heard them. The door lock and entrance way made us feel very secure.Would rent again without hesitation
The apt. was excellent and helped make this trip my best ever to Paris, and I've been there over 25 times all for vacations in about 20 years. I'm certainly very familiar with the city so I enjoyed having this home away from home for such a long period. This Rue Buci area has always been my favorite Paris spot. The apt. was very modern and well equipped and so comfortable. Loredana was very friendly and informative as a greeter. I was already familiar with the process and the apt. manual from having stayed in Abesses several years ago so I didn't take up much of her time. She did contact me several times to make sure all was well. I knew I could call on her anytime. At your recommendation I used Gerome Lassalle for both of my airport transfers. Excellent and also friendly and informative. Thank you for that. As far as the cleanliness of the apt., Vincent was excellent. You could never find anyone as thorough, competent, and trustworthy. I only wish he lived in S. Florida. I would hire him in a second. I take pride in how well I keep my own home as well as your apts. but he managed to outdo me each time. A great 'Mr. Fixit' too. I want to thank H.I.P. for helping me have such a great time! Hope to return in the future.
Loredana made us most welcome and nothing seemed to much trouble for her, fortunately we did not need to put her to the test. For us both the important criteria were met. Location.....great, within meters all the shops we could need, close to the Seine, and the Marais an easy walk. Transport ..... Short walks to Metro & buses. The bed.......perfect, soft and a good size. Kitchen & clothes washing ........quality appliances, more than adequate. Shower......roomy,... water, warm and plenty. A word of warning, do not bring too much luggage, stairs could be a challenge, if your knees and/ heart are playing up.
There are many nice things to say about the St. Germain property. Fantastic location, very clean, nicely decorated, and well-equipped. However, having rented many apartments in Paris, this is not one my husband and I are likely to book again. We could not take back-to-back showers as there was not enough hot water and the water heater took more than three hours to refill. We've never had this issue with any other apartment in Paris. My husband was on business, so he got to take the morning shower while I had to wait until evening for mine. We also found the bed very small - both in width and length. I think anyone over 6' would have a hard time sleeping in this particular bed. Note from HiP: Thank you for this review. We appreciate you noting this about the water heater and are sorry for any inconvenience this caused you. The bed is a double and we do agree that it could be on the small side for anybody over 6 feet tall.
This is the fourth time we have stayed in HIP apartments...3 times in Paris and once in London...so obviously we love their service. They are professional and dependable which is a comfort when you are booking an apartment in a foreign city. The St. Germain property is lovely and in a great location. You are just steps away from cafes, restaurants, shops, galleries, and bakeries. The Seine is a 5-10 minute walk away and across the river is The Louvre. The Metro is close and very easy to use. The neighborhood is lively. We liked having the windows open to get fresh air and hear the street ambiance and music at night. When it was time to sleep, the windows shut out the noise. You do have to walk up three flights of steep winding stairs but that got easier as the week went on. Loredana was a wonderful greeter and walked us through all the things we needed to know about the apartment and the neighborhood.
The most amazing stay! Everything was right here in the house. Very comfortable. The apartment is centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere. I hated to leave. Loredana was a sweetheart! Very attentive and professional. I would definitely use Haven in Paris again!!!
We really enjoyed our stay here at this apartment and especially in the neighborhood. We felt very comfortable and at home. The location is fantastic and centrally located so we were able to walk everywhere! Enjoyed trying all the different cafes around the neighborhood. We hope to be back someday and in the meantime will tell all our friends and family about this special place.
We really enjoyed the St Germaine Market apartment. The location of the apartment was perfect for us and I think you did a great job advertising the apartment correctly and honestly. We were prepared for the climb up to the apartment. We appreciated hearing from our greeter, Loredana, in advance of our stay and she answered questions promptly in advance of our trip. We really appreciated the cleanliness of the apartment as well as it being stocked with dishwasher detergent and other various basics. Thank you for your help in making our trip really special. We most appreciated the honesty in your descriptions and how lovely the apartment really was to inhabit.
Haven in Paris, from our very first contact until we were safely back home were an excellent and very personable company to deal with. I would highly recommend Haven in Paris for travel to any of their properties. They have a great team. The apartment itself was charming with a full kitchen, although we seldom ate in. Outside the doorstep, a plethora of restaurants, cafés, a green market, grocery mart, wine shop and live entertainment on the streets. Many of the famous landmarks are within walking distance, just wear comfy shoes. The benefit of walking vs transit...you can walk off all the delicious foods you consume during your stay in the St Germain District . The St Germain Market apartment is an ideal location for a great experience in Paris. Just be mindful of the stairs in this very typical Paris apartment.
Our stay here was absolutely perfect! There is no better way to experience Paris! Our recommendations would be that if you have the time, make your way to Giverney to visit Monet's house/garden. It is stunning. The town is adorable and it's only 45 minutes away. We would also recommend a day at Montmartre and you're done, walk down to the Moulin Rouge to pick up the Metro. It is a beautiful walk through authentic Paris, quite lovely. And if you have the time, try to book a dinner cruise on the Seine. You pass all the most famous monuments and its lovely. We had a great trip and could not ask for anything better. We hope to come back soon!
What a perfect place to stay in Paris. We were so glad we were able to experience apartment life in the 6th. Great chocolate, food, people. Thank you HiP!
We loved our stay at St. Germain Market! We enjoyed our stay completely. The decor is lovely. The furniture was very comfortable. The bed was comfortable and we slept well every night. We really appreciated the A/C, the dishwasher and the washer/dryer. The bathroom was very nice as well. Great shower! The info book was very helpful. And we liked having the computer and wifi. The photos were very accurate to how the apartment was and for that we were grateful. Loredana was fantastic! Very enthusiastic and personable. We liked her style and she was very thorough in explaining the flat to us. Having a greeter for the check in and check out was a nice perk. Loredana very obviously knows the property very well and cares for it very well. We found the apartment was pristine when we arrived. We were very impressed by how clean it was. Jim and I are quite picky and to come to such a beautiful and immaculately clean apartment was a pleasure. We absolutely loved our stay. The apartment was perfect and we loved the location. We will most definitely use HIP for our next trip to Paris!
Our stay in Paris was excellent, and a big part of it was the St. Germain Market apartment. The location was ideal, close to most of the sights and in the middle of the Saint Germain action. We walked everywhere! The apartment itself far exceeded our expectations. It is well decorated and beautifully maintained, and has everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Coming back to it at the end of a long day was indeed coming back to our own haven. The whole process from reservation to check-out was painless, and Loredana was a great help in getting us acquainted with the property and the area around it. Thanks to the Haven in Paris team for helping make our vacation perfect!
We had a wonderful time in Paris and really loved our stay at the St Germain Market apartment. We found the apartment very clean and Loredana did a super job explaining everything and checking in on us. She was fantastic. I felt like we were prepared about the stairs leading up to the apartment so I had reserved the driver David transport us to and from the airport. His cousin actually drove us and he insisted on taking our luggage up and down the stairs. We also did notice a bit of noise coming from the cafe down the street but as it had been mentioned on the HiP site, we used our phones as "white noise" makers and had no problems sleeping. Also my daughter and I could not wash our hair in back to back showers as it exhausted the hot water. We could take 2 quick showers back to back but not ones long enough to wash our hair. Twas no problem as we just rotated when we washed our hair. (I am sure this is rather common in Paris.) I would definitely return to this apartment. It was perfect and well appointed; the location was IDEAL; the owners and HiP had a booklet they had put together with all kinds of valuable information which I found to be very helpful; and Loredana was terrific. Just thinking about our stay makes me want to go back tomorrow!! Thanks so much for offering such a pleasant and wonderful way to visit Paris.
This apartment was very different then the one I stayed in last month with my family at the Eiffel Tower Loft. This trip ended up back to back with one I had already booked with my mother. I was so impressed with the Haven in Paris team that I actually cancelled my hotel reservation and booked a smaller place that was located with more night life and restaurants for an adult trip. This apartment is very nice. It has obviously been renovated and everything was excellent and well thought out. The bed was very comfortable and the sofa/eating area was well designed. It made a smaller space seem really big. The location once again was ideal beside rue Buci which is a nice two block street with everything to eat ready to go. A small grocery store is located a 10 second walk from your door. The metro station Odeon was less then a minute away. You can also take many streets from the apartment to bring you to the Seine easily. This apartment had a great little book with a map that shows you exactly where you are and all your options. In the bedroom you do not hear the outside noise from the streets. If you sleep on the sleeper sofa you may hear a small buzz of noise. This area is very busy every night and fun to be on. A real gem of a place. My only con for some people would be: the flight of stairs to the apartment. Our luggage was over 50lbs each and given my mother being almost 70 years old I hauled them all up alone. So, if you have heavy luggage either pay your driver to bring them up or have someone strong with you. However, having said this, I would still rent this apartment again since it is so lovely inside and the location is really great! Once again my experience with Haven in Paris was top notch. My Paris greeter was Jeanne and she was great. She showed me every detail of the apartment and I felt really comfortable.
As this was our first trip to Paris (but NOT our last!), I was quickly overwhelmed. I was referred to HIP and loved what I saw on their web-site. I also saw a U.S. phone number and decided to make an 'old-fashioned' phone call. Surprisingly, I got a 'person'. After a wonderful phone call with Elise, I had no doubt that I was in good hands. From that moment on, planning was much easier and knowing we had a wonderful apartment, everything else fell into place. From the moment we boarded our flight, our trip was spectacular. Our driver (HIP recommended) was professional and timely. Loredana, our greeter could not have been more accommodating and caring. She was lovely and checked in regularly to make sure we were pleased with the apartment. The St Germain Market apartment was perfect for us. Loved the walk up, and it had everything we needed. Being in Paris, we obviously did not spend a whole lot of time there, but felt happy, comfortable and safe while we were there. The St Germain neighborhood was also spot on for us. Plenty to do and see and close to everything we had planned. We are already planning our next trip, and I have no doubt whatsoever that we will rent with HIP.
The St. Germain Market apartment is just what we would want if we had an apartment in Paris. Within walking distance to all the museums and parks and an abundance of fabulous restaurants outside your front door. We enjoyed being able to open the windows to hear the street musicians too, but when it was time for bed we could close them up and it was nice and quiet. Excellent service provided by all the staff of HIP. This experience has ensured that we won't be staying in hotels any longer. We can't wait to return to this gem of an apartment.
We absolutely loved the St Germain apartment. It is a perfect little Parisian apartment...gorgeous windows that open onto an ever-changing street scene, a centuries-old apartment building full of character and soul, yet all the modern conveniences. It has a fabulous kitchen. The bedroom is sweet and romantic. It is just simply lovely. From other reviews, I was concerned about street noise...it was not a problem. With the windows open you can hear musicians playing and the liveliness of the nearby cafes, however, when the windows are closed, it is peaceful and quiet. What I loved most is the location. You can walk everywhere...from galleries to chic shopping to the Louvre...even to nearby grocers. It was perfection.
We had a wonderful stay in Paris and loved the St Germain Market property. It was in the best location and we enjoyed everything about it. Even the late night noise wafting up from the bars below. I might add that the double glazed windows worked a treat in blocking this noise out so it was not an issue for us at all. We loved the location and liveliness of the area. And the many wonderful places to eat within easy walking distance. The apartment was very well equipped with almost everything we could have asked for. The apartment was extremely clean and we loved the roses and wonderful wine. Such a lovely touch. Thank you for helping to make our stay in Paris so memorable once again. We look forward to our next stay at another HIP apartment in the future.
The apartment was fantastic and really suited our needs. Roger made us feel very welcome and clearly explained how to use the appliances. We encourage all who stay here to consider the restaurant recommendations found in the guide book provided, in particular those restaurants in the section relating to gastronomic restaurants (not necessarily within walking distance). We took up some of their suggestions and had very good meals in restaurants we would never have gone to. We particularly enjoyed Cobea, a restaurant in Montparnasse. Thanks again for providing accommodation that enhanced our holiday and for making everything so easy.
This is a great apartment. It has everything you need for a great stay in Paris. It is clean, and well laid out. It is not large by American standards but plenty big by Paris standards. From the apartment, you can walk out your door into one of the most wonderful neighborhoods in Paris, with restaurants, open air markets, and a fantastic bread baker a few doors down. You can choose to cook what you buy in the neighborhood in the apartment or eat out. We did both during our stay and they were both wonderful.
This is our 4th or 5th visit to the St Germain Market apartment and we still love being here. We feel like this is our very own neighborhood - the sights & sounds are so familiar - the street performers, the usual protest marchers, the cafes, the boulangerie, etc. What fun we have telling people about "our apartment" in Paris. We'll be back as long as our health holds up so we can manage those steps!
54 steps up to a wonderful and beautiful week in Paris. Your apartment and the HiP people are top notch and we will strongly recommend you to our friends. Thank you.
In the heart of St Germain’s vibrant street culture this location is perfect for exploring all of central Paris. With the local tips provided by HIP it was easy to immediately feel like a resident of the neighborhood and frequent the best marche, bistro & yes bring home a fresh baguette after a long day of being a flaneur. The apartment is well appointed and represented fairly in the online profile. The owner has provided a charming pied-a-terre with modern appliances, thoughtful extras (laptop, visitor guides, museum books, etc.) and a very comfortable bed. Airy and light, the apartment is both a joy to return to after a day exploring Paris and a convenient stopover for a change of clothes to embark upon a Paris evening. A couple or a single will enjoy this apartment as their home base during a stay in Paris. What is not in the apartment can be bought in a shop within 2-3 blocks. Local night life is literally 3 buildings away on the corner. All of Paris can be easily reached on foot - walking to the Seine is 3 blocks, via metro – all major lines can be reached from nearby stations, or in a taxi that cruise the neighborhood at all hours. Bon chance! Tom
What a fantastic apartment and an amazing locations. We have loved living here for the week. The apartment was extremely comfortable, but most of our time was spend outdoors of course. The vibrant scenes from our apartment window are colourful and fantastic. Listening to the sounds of people, jazz music, and street dancers draw you outdoors to experience the lively atmosphere. Walking distance from Notre Dame, Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, and so much more. In fact, we walked everywhere, even to the Eiffel Tower, had a picnic, and walked back. We couldn't have asked for more. Haven in Paris have been a pleasure to deal with, very professional and prompt service. Thank you so much.
We loved staying in this spacious apartment with so much thought put into the detail. We loved the street atmosphere and liked to lean out the window and just look. We walked and walked - spent a lot of time in the 3rd and 5th. Loved the local streets here - Rue Jacob, especially the Xmas shop. We ate at Chez Calde, Un Dimanche a Paris, Patrick Roger, Eric Kayser, Laduree. We did do other things than eat but also stopped at several markets: Marche Saxe-Breteuil, Marche Bastille, Marche Monge. Rue Mouffetard in the Latin Quarter is a good market street. Finally, if you are interested in perfume visit Diptyque. You can walk there - it is heavenly and the staff are superb - and the candles... Thank you again - we would love to come back and stay here, the location is fabulous.
Roger was fantastic! He was waiting for us upon our arrival, was incredibly welcoming, warm and informative – both for the apartment and the surrounding St Germain area. Likewise, he came on our day of departure and was wonderful. Cleaning met all expectations – no concerns at all. The Saint Germain area is perfect – we literally walked everywhere! The cafes, shopping, proximity to everything was ideal at the location. From walking out our front door for morning coffee and breakfast, to the Eiffel Tower, Louvre, all the museums, gardens, and fabulous restaurants at night … I can’t imagine you could get much better! Access to the entire Left Bank, as well as bridges to the Right Bank was perfect for us. Thank you for all your help in coordinating our stay in Paris – we hope to be back soon!
The apartment was beautiful and in a great location for a first trip to Paris. We enjoyed many of the restaurants with a quick walk as well as the produce market. We thought of this as a home away from home and hope to come back again for the places we didn't get the time to visit. The apartment was phenomenal. We truly enjoyed every minute of our experience there. The location was magnificent, as were the accommodations. And, our greeter, Roger, was top notch! He was there for us for anything that we needed, explained everything that we needed to know, and is truly a great asset to your organization!! We would recommend this apartment to everyone, and truly hope to be able to return here as well as to visit some of your other locations. We highly suggest the Bike About Tour to get a feeling for where things are located. We also enjoyed a trip to Versailles with them.
We absolutely loved our location in St-Germain-des-Prés. The location was excellent, we could easily walk to many cafés, restaurants and markets, it is near a metro station and close to a lot of the main Paris attractions. The neighbourhood is a very lively one and you just need to walk to the corner café, order a coffee or wine, sit back and fully experience the colourful, wonderful Paris life, day and night. It's everything you think of when you think of Paris! We loved to also be able to just buy a baguette, cheese, pastries, a bottle of wine and just come "home" and relax after a long day of sightseeing. (By the way, you can buy all these within a stone's throw of the apartment.) The apartment was top notch, well appointed and designed. Everything you can possibly need was included, including umbrellas if it rains, and maps to help you navigate in Paris. There was also a binder with a wealth of information, from the best restaurants to emergency contacts. Our greeter Roger was extremely helpful, knowledgeable and personable, and could be reached at any time if needed.
The St. Germain property was perfect for us. The location was ideal - we were able to walk to all the major attractions that we wanted to see on this trip (except Versaille of course). The flat is surrounded by so many lovely cafes and other little shops, we really need to come back to Paris a few more times to be able to see everything there is to see packed into that tiny little area. The property really is beautiful - so well decorated with plenty of space to feel right at home. I'm so glad we didn't stay in a hotel! It was well stocked with everything we could have needed - dishes, towels, extra blankets. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, we didn't have any trouble sleeping. Although we didn't cook a meal while there, the kitchen is well stocked with everything you would need. The flat was perfectly cleaned when we arrived. It looked like a picture in a magazine. The cleanliness exceeded our expectations. David Partouche the luxury taxi driver was there at the airport to greet us as we arrived in Paris. He gave us an excellent ride directly to our flat - and helped us get up to the apartment. He did a great job. Our greeter Loredana was great. She was waiting for us when we arrived and gave us all the information we needed. She brought in some groceries for us which were perfect - just what we asked for. The flowers were absolutely beautiful, and the wine was a nice gift. She was also there to see us off after our stay. She taught us the proper Parisian greeting - touching cheeks on both sides with an air kiss. Good to know!
I appreciated Loredana's beautiful choice of flowers and her meticulous explanation of how the apartment worked. When leaving, she even helped me get my extra heavy luggage downstairs. The apartment is very chic and right in the middle of the smaller streets of St Germain de Pres with all the wonderful more casual restaurants. We appreciated that we always had hot water & air conditioning--not always a certainty in Paris!
This is our second experience with Haven in Paris. The apartments have both been completely accurately represented on their web site. They are clean and comfortable, and while we have not needed the services of our greeter's after arrival, it is nice to know there is someone available if you need them. We also highly recommend David for transportation to the airport (see the services section of HIP website). The location of this apartment in particular is fabulous, with some of the best of Paris right outside your door or a short walk away.
This was our second visit to the St Germain Market property and we would not have come back if it were not so nice and well maintained. The location and conveniences are excellent. The new washer/dryer is wonderful. The new washer does need a manual so it may be operated more easily.* Now, if it only had an elevator. If the apartment were mine I would make only three small changes to make it livable as a permanent residence. HiP Note: We will make sure there is a manual in the flat shortly.
We really enjoyed our stay at the St Germain Market flat and in Paris! The apartment was wonderful; in a great location and very comfortable. The apartment guides and recommendations were all great. Anthony of "one and only" photography was terrific! Although I haven't yet seen the final pictures, he was professional, very accommodating and overall a pleasure to spend a few hours all over Paris with taking photos. Audrey, his wife, was also very helpful over email.
We had an absolutely incredible stay. There was nothing that we would have changed- location, facilities, and quality of everything was perfect. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our greeter, Roger, was very friendly and helpful. He was great. We didn't use any other HiP recommended service providers, but did appreciate the restaurant suggestions- we tried many of them and loved them all. The quality of cleaning was perfect. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in Paris!
Merci beaucoup! We had such a wonderful stay at your St Germain Market apartment. It couldn't have been in a more perfect location. Your restaurant suggestions were also great.
Incroyable! This was such a magical spot to celebrate our 30th anniversary. The location was ideal. Your attention to detail was impeccable and professional. We fell in love with Paris again and learned that we love the 6th arrondissement. We will come back and Haven in Paris will be our first call. Merci beaucoup!
I had a great stay in the St Germain Market apartment. Roger, my greeter, was excellent and friendly. The cleaner, Vincent did a great job with the place too. Location was very central and nice to have the air conditioning. The only thing I would mention is that the stairs are a bit of a hazard - but manageable. Could be tricky for older folks or someone who has problems with stairs - winding and no railing.* My experience with Haven in Paris was excellent. You are a great group. Professional and responsive. Good communication and follow up. I would definitely look to use your services again. *HiP note: we do tell clients "please be aware that the 3 flights of stairs to the flat are steep and would be a problem for someone who has trouble climbing."
Thank you so much for sharing your wonderful apartment with us. It was our home away from home and gave us such a feeling of warmth and comfort after a day of sight seeing. This was our first trip to Paris and we couldn't have been in a more exciting place. Your guide was most helpful and gave us new ideas of what to do or eat each day. We can't wait to come back to Paris thanks to your wonderful welcome.
Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us. We loved having such a warm and lovely place to come home to at the end of the day. "Haven in Paris" is great. Loredana, our greeter, was helpful and gracious. We will definitely be using the service and staying in St Germain Market apartment again the next time we are in Paris...hopefully soon!
My wife Julie and I have had the most amazing time in Paris and the apartment at St Germain Market was beautiful and in the best location. Thank you to Roger and Loredana for a warm and friendly welcome and to HIP and the owner of the apartment. WE will be coming back to Paris and hope to stay here again.
We had a wonderful stay. Thank you for letting us stay in such a beautiful place.
Had a wonderful stay, love Paris. Our greeter Loredana was wonderful. Looking forward to our next stay.
Wanted to let you know how pleased we were with the apartment St Germain Market! It really was excellent; spotlessly clean, comfortable, larger than we expected - we could live there. All of the (very nice) appliances were put to good use. The welcome flowers were a nice touch and the bottle of wine was much appreciated. Roger the greeter was also excellent. Although we were late arriving, he took his time showing and telling us all the ins and outs of the apartment and the neighborhood. Thank you again for your professionalism and the wonderful stay.
Thank you for a fabulous week! Our stay at the St Germain market apartment was perfect. Such a great location, especially for people watching. This was our first trip to Paris and we could not have had a better time. The apartment was a cozy and comfortable home base that suited us perfectly. Loredana was great! She was very pleasant and showed us everything about the apartment when we showed up, and then called us a taxi the day of our departure. She was a great help and a nice person to be around. We also had Andy Waters pick us up at the airport and he was perfect. It helped that he is an English speaker, and he gave us a couple of great tips for our visit. It was very nice to have someone waiting at the airport specifically for us, and Andy was a welcoming presence. We are already scheming for a return to Paris, hopefully next year, and we will definitely try to rent from HiP again. Although we didn't cook it's still nice to have the added space and hominess of an apartment. It gave us the illusion of being residents!
We've had a wonderful time in this lovely apartment! Thank you for all the helpful instructions and recommendations. And thank you to Loredana for her help getting us settled in. Everything was very nice and clean as well. We look forward to our return!
Thank you so much Haven in Paris, we have greatly enjoyed our stay at the St Germain market apartment. My husband and I can't say enough about how fabulous the apartment was for us. The location was just perfect. We miss Cafe Buci greatly. I desperately long for a long walk down Boulevard St. Germain, then stop at a cafe for a chilled glass of champagne. The apartment became our home away from home. It was absolutely wonderful. The location is amazing - we will return to Paris and fall in love all over again.
Thank you, we had a great week in Paris. Supremely comfortable bed, warm cozy apartment and great location. Excellent kitchen - made some yummy meals, and loved the Nespresso machine.
Greeters were excellent, everything worked and towels/linens were of excellent quality. Appliances and instructions were excellent. Seating was comfortable and light was good for reading. Area is fun and street noise does not intrude into bedroom, a club across the street is open until at least 5 AM and is amusing to watch the people enter and exit. Some new restaurants for your recommendation: "21" at 21 Rue Mazarine - pricey and reservations absolutely required and is fish only but fish is on a par with "Jules Verne." No stars, just excellent. "Il Vicolo" at 35 Rue Mazarine - reservations necessary most nights, very friendly, blend of Italian/Franch. Very good with upscale bistro pricing.
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in the St Germain Market apartment. We were in a perfect location to walk to sites, restaurants, bakeries and the Metro/RER. The proximity to markets and the apartment's kitchen were also perfect when we wanted to spend a quiet night in. The apartment was also very quiet considering the windows overlooked a fairly busy street with active nightlife. The reservation process was straightforward without any hidden costs. Haven in Paris was attentive before, during and after our trip. We will definitely use Haven in Paris again when we return to Paris!
Formidable! Great time! Great place! What a superb moment! Thanks to Haven!
We had a great time in Paris. Wonderful apartment, ideally located, everything was perfect. Roger was great! We hope to return soon!
Thank you for sharing your wonderful apartment. We really enjoyed our stay in this wonderful neighborhood. We also enjoyed quite a few of the restaurants recommended!
We had a wonderful time at our apartment in the St Germain Market apartment. The apartment itself was clean, comfortable and conveniently located. The decor was suberb (we loved the exposed beams), the linens and towels plentiful and the kitchen well designed. We had a wonderful view of the street from our living room window, while a quiet and extraordinarily comfortable bedroom gave us a great night's sleep. Everything in the apartment was clearly marked in English so we had no problems learning how to work the various machines. The laptop and TV/DVD player was a great convenience and the guide books were invaluable. The flowers and croissants on arrival were a lovely touch! Moreover, the location was perfect. The neighborhood was filled with great little restaurants, boutiques (check out Solola and Kickers for great clothes and shoes), boulangeries, flower store and wine shop! It was also very conveniently located to the Metro and the Seine river, so touring was easy. We would highly, highly recommend this apartment and we miss it already!
Our greeter Roger was very kind and generous to us on arrival with wine and flowers, even though we got him out of bed at 1:00 am due to delays in flights, he still took the time to show us any peculiarities with the apartment, which we greatly appreciated. The apartment was lovely, great location, central to everything we needed to see. The Welcome Book is a must read and well put together. Thanks for an enjoyable & memorable stay in your lovely apartment. I would recommend anyone who wishes to stay in a central location in Paris to stay here.
We had a great time and appreciate the convenience and comfort of "home" so close at hand. Roger was a great and hospitable greeter.
We had a wonderful stay at your St Germain market property. It was the perfect place and location for our stay. The girl who greeted was very friendly and even helped with our luggage and had fresh pastries waiting for us which was lovely of her. The restaurant and bakery recommendations were great and we thoroughly enjoyed them. St Germain des pres was a wonderful location and we loved the buzz and excitement of the area - when we one day hope to visit Paris we would definitely stay in the same area. We would without a doubt recommend to anyone interested in visiting Paris and wanting an apartment stay to book through Haven in Paris, as we had a wonderful experience and comfortable stay. Thank you so much for your professional help, fantastic communication and wonderful acommodation.
We had an amazing time at the St Germain Market apartment. It was a very accomodating and luxurious apartment and was the perfect location for our stay. The host who greeted was very pleasant and even helped carry our luggage. She arranged fresh pastries and a great bottle of red which was a lovely touch. The restaurant and bakery recommendations were fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed them and would recommend them too. St Germain des pres is a fantastic location, and the cafe scene has a great buzz which ads to the area. We hope to revisit Paris again one day and we would definitely stay in the same area. We would without a doubt recommend to anyone planning to visit Paris to book an apartment stay through Haven in Paris. We had a great experience aranging our stay through them and cannot fault their professionalism.
Thank you ever so much for our stay in this beautiful apartment! It could not be in a better location (food, shops, clubs). Also we had all the information about Paris we could ever need.
The apartment was one of the highlights of our trip. We really loved it, and for a week, could pretend we were local Parisians. I will certainly be recommending Haven in Paris to friends.
The St Germain Market property is beautiful and comfortable. The location is perfect for us. This is definitely the way to stay in Paris.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful apartment with us. Ieva was excellent as our "greeter" and the many books and useful tips made our stay most enjoyable. We hope to return soon.
The St Germain Market apartment was fantastic - can't beat that location can you? And my greeter was super sweet.
The apartment is fabulous! It is very comfortable and has everything one could want. The location is excellent as well. Our greeter, Ieva, was wonderful. She was very friendly and professional. Through Haven in Paris, we contacted Andy to pick us up at the airport and take us to the apartment. He is very charming and reliable. We highly recommend him. We will definitely stay in this apartment when we return to Paris.
My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in February and loved it! The greeter was extremely friendly and spoke good English. The flat is very comfy and the perfect size. You can't beat the location! Tons of great restaurants and bars all right out the door. The Metro is a 5 minute walk, at most, but we rarely even used it. Would highly recommend this flat! Also, we found Andy Waters through the site, and having him taxi us back and forth from the airport was a treat! Very kind, funny, English man.
Apartment was very comfortable and extremely well kitted out with everything one might need. The location is excellent but if people are expecting tranquil quiet this is not the place for them as the rue area can be lively at night. However, the noise level was no problem for us (and we actually don't like noise!). It's such a marvellous area and everything is handy. We've been going to that area for many years to stay and love it and the apartment is exquisitely situated. The greeting service from Amaury and his team was excellent. They are obliging and friendly and happy to help in any way. They booked a taxi for us and followed up with any queries in a prompt manner. Can't recommend them strongly enough. Your own services were excellent too in handling the booking and we appreciate your communication and goodwill.
Great apartment with excellent location. Very clean and modern. We felt safe in the area and were very close to many attractions.
The quality of the greeters was perfect. Grendal and Lucas were both prompt, spoke English passably, were very helpful and flexible with arrangements, calling taxis, making suggestions. They were really ideal in every way. Everything was really great..... the laptop was a huge help, the appliances were fabulous... the beds were comfortable and had lovely clean cotton sheets. I'd be happy to stay there again, definitely. I might choose another apartment just for variety, but I would definitely recommend it to friends. It's really a great alternative to a hotel.... when we eventually moved to a hotel, I really missed the space and convenience of the apartment.
our whole experience was absolutely wonderful - all that i hoped it could be. from receiving the guide book in advance (which added to our excitement for our vacation) to the apartment and our guide. i didn't want to leave! the kitchen was a dream to use (very rare in rentals) and made it very hard to come back to my nyc kitchen! we are already trying to work out when we can go back... thank you all at haven!
This was the second property my friend and I have rented from Haven in Paris. We were very pleased with the location and the smoothness of the transaction. The apartment itself was beautiful, however, the heating system was a little weak. My friend, who is from Boston, thought so as well. I'm sure if Paris had not had such a cold January, the heating system might have been adequate. There were a few broken items in the apartment from the renters prior to us, and we were assured that this would be corrected, however, it wasn't. Other than that, the apartment was fine. (NOTE from HIP: additional heating will now be provided to clients and the items have been fixed)
We had a really great stay at the St Germain Market apartment. The location of the apartment was awesome for food and walking and everything in the 6th. The apartment itself had absolutely everything you could want. The décor and atmosphere was awesome. The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was great, loved the nespresso coffee machine. Everything was top notch. We would definitely rent with you guys again. Your service and attention to detail was great.
We had a lovely stay in Paris. It was a shame it could not be longer. Our greeter was very pleasant, helping us with our bags up those very uneven stairs. I particularly enjoyed the food shopping part of our stay - all those lovely (but very expensive) traiteurs. We hope to stay in Paris again, but for a longer time and perhaps somewhere a bit larger.
A great flat in a fantastic location! The apartment was very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location could not have been better. Walking distance to Notre Dame, The Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Luxembourg Gardens and the Metro. We enjoyed the shops and cafes just a few steps from the front door.
I was warned from friends about renting an apartment in Paris as there have been so many "bad" experiences. Haven in Paris however was the best experience I have encountered! The ease of booking procedures: any question i had was immediately answered. I was given a booklet with step by step instructions to everything(tv, Washing machine, coffee machine etc). The most important thing though was how amazing the apartment was. Far better than the pictures!! The neighborhood was exactly what i was after. Right in the mix of the best restaurants and walking distance to most things. If not, the metro was a minute away! I can't wait to go back!
I also wanted to give feedback on our visit to Paris. David and I were in the St Germain Market apartment. We were both very pleased with the apartment. The location was perfect. It was so nice being in such a vibrant neighborhood with some many amenities near. The décor was so well done. And the kitchen facilities were perfect. (I am used to a gas stove, but the electric stove top was even better!) Our greeter, Amaury, was great. He was very nice and very responsive to our questions. I would give him excellent ratings. We have passed on the website to several friends and would definitely come back. Thanks! Judy
We had a wonderful stay at the St Germain market property. The flat is really cute, and even though it is quite small, it was perfect for our family of 3! Gilles (our greeter) was very nice and polite, and his "guided tour" of the apartment was very helpful. It was a nice touch to have a bottle of wine and patisserie waiting for us as a welcome gift. We would like to congratulate you for being so professional, and hope we can do business together soon. We will for sure recommend your company to all our friends. Thank you, et a bientot! Claudia
We were very happy with the apartment, our neighborhood, and your services, and will recommend you to friends going to Paris. Thanks again
I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for a wonderful stay at the St Germain Market flat. You have done a wonderful job representing your clients. Everything you said in terms of the appointments of the apartment were absolutely correct and the apartment was even better than its photographs. I found everything I needed - and more. The directory that comes with the apartment is unbelievably helpful. Thank you again -- I had such a wonderful time - until next time!
