A practical base close to Place de la Bastille, this apartment may not have a lot of bells and whistles, but it’s perfectly suited for those looking for a fuss-free stay. The living room has a sofa bed for flexible sleeping arrangements, and the compact kitchenette is ideal for light bites when you’re not out sampling the local food scene. There’s not much in the way of a view here, but you need only go outside to be within close proximity of plenty of famous sights. And ample public transport options nearby mean exploring the rest of the city is as easy as can be.

Home truths

    There's no lift here. You'll need to be able to climb stairs to reach the entrance of the home.

    At capacity, two guests will sleep on the sofa bed in the living area. Please note that if guests are using the sofa bed, they'll need to use the bedroom's en-suite bathroom. This may not suit groups looking for ample privacy.

    The kitchenette is compact and better suited to light bites. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes and bars in the area, however.

    Given the home's central spot, you may hear some noise from the street and neighbours during your stay. Light sleepers may wish to pack earplugs.

    If you're travelling for work, you won't find a dedicated desk here. However, the dining table doubles up as a laptop-friendly workspace.
