Studio Apartments rue de la Harpe
Ranked #1,737 of 1,802 Hotels in Paris
Reviewed 6 July 2009

We have just come back from staying at the apartments on Rue de la Harpe, in the 5th .
Rue de la Harpe runs parallel with B. St Michel, and is packed with restaurants- albeit it is a complete tourist trap...and not really our cup of tea at all but it has plenty of advantages. 1 mins walk from St Michel Station for RER B,C and metro line 4 and 10 , giving it perfect access for the rest of the city as well as the direct line to Gare du Nord and CDG.
It's a moinutes walk to the Seine with amazing views of the Pont Neuf , Ile de la Citie and Notrre Dame (all of which are between 2- 5 mins walk away).
Its a 5 mins walk to Odeon and St Germain which is far more of a typical parisienne experience.Wide Boulevards, Designer shops and plenty of cafes, restaurants and bars..... with rea french people ( something you won't see on Rue de la Harpe!)
The studio itself was a good size. plenty of storage, good bathroom and clean. It was basic but the kitch facilities were really good and it had all the equipment you would need but as with my Paris hotels, unless you are paying £200/night, it's anything but luxurious! The bed was small and hard with the limpest pillows ever. There was a gorgeous balacony but it was so noisy outside it wasn't always an advantage to have the doors open.
I think the worst part for us was that there was no air con and as it was over 30 during the day , it was unbearably hot in the room,and the only ventilation was through the balcony doors, which meant that until 4 in the morning, it was like sleeping in a club..... not good- but I guess that is the pay off you take for having the felxibility of an apartment.

We wouldn't return but only becuase it didnt suit us. If you want something bang in the middle of everything, and want to cater for yourself ( a wise choice gven we could get round of drinks under 14 euros!) it is a perfect choice.
