Basic apartment in buzzing Saint-Michel
A buzzing Left Bank base
You can live like a local in this Latin Quarter apartment, hidden away in a residential building in Paris's lively 5th arrondissement. Guests love being right in the action of this hopping Left Bank area. Saint-Michel Metro Station is a 2-minute walk, as is the River Seine.
Bookstores and bars
The Latin Quarter's cobbled lanes are lined with restaurants offering a 3-course menu du jour
, as well as kebab joints catering to late-night partygoers. For something quieter, walk 3 minutes to Shakespeare and Company, a gem of a bookstore which hosts literary events.
Cook for yourself
Small and simple, the apartment has a fully equipped kitchen – a handy money-saver, as you can shop in local markets and cook your own meals. Free WiFi is another nice perk.
A place to sleep
Guests say the accommodations are basic but decent, with a comfortable bed and an additional sofa bed in the lounge. You'll also have a TV, although it's more fun to watch the street scene from your window.
