We had a perfect weekend at the Resindence Villa Daubeton app with our family in the blue apartment on the first floor. The apartment had two good bedrooms and the fifth bed was in the living room on the couch. In addition, two lovely bathrooms with all conveniences.

Just returned from our annual family trip to Paris in October to see the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. This year we decided to book an apartment for the long weekend stay rather than a hotel, and decided on Villa Daubenton. The area in which it was located seemed safe and quiet, and was only a short walk from the...

Convenient if you are staying in Paris for more than several days. The living room, kitchen makes it more bearable than the cramped hotel rooms that you normally get in Paris. This place is a little ways from the heart of St Germain, so you may have to take the metro for a couple extra stops. Also make sure to...

We had a very large studio suite on the main floor, room 002 and it was brand new, very clean. Olsen was on the desk when we arrived and made us feel quite welcome.

We had a pleasant stay at this hotel. The apartment was clean and spacious. We arrived a bit earlier than expected and the room wasn't ready. Nevertheless, Isabel the manager, was extremely helpful and stowed our luggage so we could sightsee while the apartment was being prepared.

Our room was a small appartment with a double bed and a pullout couch and adequate room for all four of us. We had a small kitchen with a fridge and stove.

Our family of 4 stayed here for about one week, in Room 203, and had a very pleasant stay. I would agree with most of the comments in recent reviews, although not to the same extremes (positive or negative). Here's my quick take: PRO's - Great location. You are a short walk to the Censier-Daubenton Metro stop, and can get...

This is a quiet spot in the city. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment (no. 602) that slept 6. The room was clean and modern; beds were new, clean and comfy. Bathrooms also modern and clean.

Dear Eastkid, thank you for sharing your opinion. I am surprised concerning the illegal issue close to the hotel, as the 5th district is one of the best district in Paris.
