One-of-a-kind magical stay in the heart of Paris

The Maison Anne was a magical stay for our group of 9. The pictures do not do the rooms justice. The shared space with the piano and atrium was lovely, as was each room our family stayed in, all with different antiques and unique elements. The kitchen was supplied with coffee, fruit, juice, milk butter, jam, and all we had to do was supply the croissants and baguettes! The exercise space and underground pool was an amazing space to use as well. How many people can say they swam underneath Paris?! We had so much fun in all these areas that we never even made it to see Notre Dame from the rooftop! Anne was extremely generous in accommodating our large group and made effort to make us feel welcome. I just wish we could go back to visit more often–and I look forward to staying again
Loved this place. Location Location Location.

We stayed here in April 2016 and fell in love with it. It is amazing and the location is perfect. Just up the end of the street is the Seine and Notre Dame and the other end of the street is Boulevard Saint Germain. Anne is so nice and helpful and has so much local knowledge. It was like a home away from home. We had two bedrooms for the 4 of us which also included a kitchen and bathroom. It is located in a very very safe area. We had no problems or fears of walking around late at night from the many many nearby restaurants. We had an 84 year old Uncle in our group and he had no issues with this property. There is a laundromat and supermarket nearby too which was a godsend after travelling for a few weeks. Everything around this area is fantastic. I will definitely stay here again when I am back in Paris. Loved it. Thank you Anne.

Mom and I stayed here for a December visit to the Christmas markets. Wonderful location, right off St. Germaine, 1/2 mile to Notre Dame. Anne was a wonderful hostess… available when we wanted her, but left us alone when we didn’t. Gave great suggestions on restaurants (go to Gladines just down the street). Super close to the metro. At the end of the street, one right next to the other, is a green grocer, a fish shop, a cheese shop, a bakery, and a butcher. Just around the corner was a pastry shop where it was fun to watch them make the beautiful pastries daily. Pool and sauna and baby gym in the basement. Anne made us breakfast one morning, absolutely wonderful spread of truffled scrambled eggs, fruits, pastries, meats, cheeses. Room was big, floor to ceiling windows looking out onto the narrow street, small fridge and stove top. Lots of DVD’s, books, CD’s to share if you want.

This is a complicated review because Maison d’Anne is a complicated place… I am not sure how to classify it really. Somewhere between a B and B and guest apartments. Firstly the apartment. This is a very large and rambling house that has been divided up into guest rooms, each with some small facility for food prep and a bathroom. The owner and her family live in the upstairs rooms. Some may not like the ad hoc nature of the accommodation – we found it charming and quaint. All amenities where good. The wifi was a bit dodgy, probably all those very thick walls – we often had to go into the common areas to get a decent commotion. We were greeted and given tour of the rooms and facilities by Anne’s niece who was fantastic. We felt very welcomed into their very personal B and B. Throughout the stay everyone was extremely helpful with good food advise, helped us get a doctor to call out and made our Paris stay as good as could be. The apartment is really well located in St Germain – a stones throw from Notre Dame and walking into the city or taking the Metro was easy. There are several local small grocery stores and a weekend market with excellent produce. We found the experience very good value for money. Highly recommended for those who like a bit of a rambling quaint experience – we certainly did. Anne and her family are great hosts, if we go back to Paris we will certainly stay there again. The images on Trip Advisor tell the story about the house eloquently.
Excellent Stay – Highly Recommended

I had the pleasure of staying at this luxurious and historical BnB after hearing great things from friends. Let me say this: words could not accurately describe the atmosphere and comfort that this BnB provides. The family members of whom were very personable and accommodating, this booking is right in the middle of Paris with a short 5 minute walk away from the Notre Dame. Being centrally located to major transit lines, travelling the city was quick and easy. As for the accommodations, everything was top notch. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were extremely clean. Each room also had it’s own kitchenette should you choose to use and cook meals. But the creme de la creme was the pool/jacuzzi/sauna located in the grotto which were used frequently and was a great way to end a whole day of putting miles on your legs discovering Paris. All in all this was a five star experience and would definitely recommend to anyone I know travelling to the city in the future.
