Charming studio in the 5th arrondissement near the rue Mouffetard
|Address||Rue du Puits de l'Ermite, 75005 Paris, France|
|Response time||A few hours|
3rd floor without elevator.
The 5th arrondissement is the oldest district of Paris: it encompasses the largest part of the Quartier latin, built by the Romans during the Antiquity. It is located on the left bank, at the edge of the Seine river. During May 1968, the Quartier latin was a center of the student revolt. Nowadays, the 5th arrondissement is above all an intellectual and university area; an area of editors and booksellers as well as schools and universities.
One of the most famous monuments of Paris, the Pantheon, that honours great figures in French History, is located in this district. You can also visit the Jardin des Plantes with its numerous buildings and green spaces, visit the Natural History museum within it, then go have a mint tea at the Grande Mosquee of Paris before exploring the Arenes de Lutece.
Thanks to its mainly student population, the 5th arrondissement is one of the most lively areas of Paris. The well-known rue Mouffetard and the area around are full of restaurants and cafes, but still manage to remain authentic and keep a very pleasant spirit of “village”. Shopping lovers will not be disappointed either, since the 5th is also the district of the boulevard Saint-Michel and of a part of the boulevard Saint-Germain, where most major brands have a store.

We had a wonderful time in Paris for 4 days!
The studio was near a metro station and 15-20 minute walk from the river, in a quiet area. In a 3 minute walk there is a street with bistros and bars. The flat was warm and friendly. Clean and comfortable. The wifi was accessible. There were kitchen utensils and microwave, a boiler for hot water, a hoover , a hairdryer and an iron fo the clothes.
However, there was discoloration in a corner of the ceiling near the bathroom and inside and there was no curtain in the bathroom. No TV.
I would suggest this flat for a young couple, but not for people who would stay many hours inside the flat.
Nice mini-flat provided with everything we needed for a 4 days holiday in a couple. Very good site in the city. Clean and confortable. Very parisienne. Owner so kind. Mario
The apartment’s location is marvelous, situated in a small quiet street, a few minutes to the next Metro, a twenty minutes walk to the Boulevards ST. Michel and ST.Germain. But this exhausts the positive aspects.
The apartment is advertised as a charming studio. My husband and I had difficulties to see the charm in the mold we encountered in the bathtub corner; the discoloration in the ceiling, likely the result from a leak in the apartment above; the lack of any space on the table for two normal plates – the small existing table is taken up by a microwave oven for which there is no room in the kitchen – ; no kettle for boiling water; and most annoyingly in the digital age, the lack of reliable access to WiFi. Trying to connect to the Internet during the day was a lottery game with an approximate chance of success of less than 30% and during the evening with a zero chance. After inquiring with the owner, she offered as explanation that the apartment is in an old building (how many residential buildings in the center of Paris are new?) and yes, that there is a problem with the company providing Internet services. It seemed that she had made no efforts to resolve the problem. Whether the excellent location of the studio represents a worthwhile trade-off to these charming attributes is left to the judgement of the potential renter. For us, it did not.
Perfect stay in this very well furnished studio, nice and very comfortable. Moreover, very quiet area.
Our hostess was very friendly during our exchange of emails and provided us with great kindness all the necessary information.
Séjour parfait dans ce studio très bien aménagé, joli et très confortable. De plus, zone très tranquille.

There were wonderful 4 days in Paris. A beautiful fine rooms. Just the right thing to experience Paris. Absolutely good and nicely located. Even something different than in the hotel. Toll was the coffee machine for the first coffee morgentlichen. The small kitchen and bathroom with tub were also practical. I would want to stay there much longer. Our hostess was very uncomplicated and reliable, it has everything worked smoothly. I would like to come back. Merci beaucoup Catherine.
Es waren wundervolle 4 Tage in Paris. Ein wunderschönes feines Zimmer. Genau das richtige um Paris zu erleben. Absolut gut und schön gelegen. Auch mal was anderes als im Hotel. Toll war die Kaffeemaschine für den morgentlichen ersten Kaffee. Die kleine Küche und das Bad mit Badewanne waren ebenfalls praktisch. Ich hätte wesentlich länger dort bleiben wollen. Unsere Gastgeberin war sehr unkompliziert zuverlässig und es hat alles reibungslos geklappt. Ich möchte gerne wiederkommen. Merci beaucoup Catherine.
Studio charming, very quiet, quite in line with the description.
Studio charmant, très calme, tout à fait en lien avec la description.
The apartment was what we expected (except for the glass door of the cabinet is replaced by a skimpy curtain)
But what was worst of all was that we had access in any moment of our stay. The password and network name were on a note in the microwave and was very unclear what the key and what the name of the network. We call to your contact Catherine thousand times and it was a situation of powerlessness apagado..fue great because neceditábsmos visit to our Internet. We got in contact with Wimdu to fix or change our apartment and were asking us to send them a Mail for change ...... how we were going to send mail if we did not have wifi!
Finally, we managed to contact the hostess and told us he was out of Paris and that the network was broken ... and a number of contradictory things we thought everything was a lie. That has wifi. Anyway, in the end it did not get bitter but the trip was very frustrante..Carherine a zero hostess although the apartment is OK. You can not deceive people.
El apartamento era lo que nos esperábamos (a excepción de la puerta de cristales del armario está sustituida por una cortina bastante cutre)
Pero lo que fue peor de todo fue que no tuvimos wifi en ningún momento de nuestra estancia. La clave y nombre de la red estaban en una nota en el microondas y estaba muy poco claro cuál era la clave y cuál el nombre de la red. Llamamos al teléfono de contacto de Catherine mil veces y lo tenía apagado..fue una situación de impotencia muy grande porque para nuestra visita neceditábsmos internet. Nos pusimos en contacto con Wimdu para solucionarlo o cambiarnos de apartamento y nos pedían que les mandáramos un Mail para el cambio......¡cómo íbamos a mandar Mail si no teníamos wifi!
En fin, conseguimos ponernos en contacto con la anfitriona y nos dijo que estaba fuera de París y que la red estaba estropeada...y una serie de cosas contradictorias por las que pensamos que todo era mentira. Que no tiene wifi. En fin, al final esto no consiguió amargarnos el viaje pero si fue muy frustrante..Carherine un cero como anfitriona aunque el apartamento esté bien. No se puede engañar así a la gente.
Simply Loved this place, I still have dreams of the location and the space a year later. My wife and I talk about it all the time. The space is not really large but where is really large in this region of the world. There are places to eat as well as a nice strip of restaurants and markets close by. We utilize a near by supermarket almost daily (the American in us) and even stopped by Staples to get some printing done. The metro access was perfect complete with two stops in very close walking distance. The host was great and we were able to do everything via text and she was very accommodating although we missed our train to Paris. I would suggest this space to couples and single folks who want an authentic stay in Paris.
