A cute and cheerful self-catering studio on a quiet street in the 15th arrondissement, close to the Seine and the Eiffel Tower (sleeps 2)

It’s incredibly rare to find affordable accommodation in Paris without having to compromise on style or location. So when a cute little studio flat within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower comes along, you snap it up. This is a taste of authentic Parisian living in a friendly neighbourhood - and how quaintly French it is to be staying in a former boulangerie! The space is small but charming, located on the ground floor of a handsome 19th-century building in the 15th arrondissement. From here you can walk to the Champ de Mars in 25 minutes or join the riverside path along the Seine, while the rest of Paris’ sights are an easy Metro hop away via two nearby stations.

Run by the team behind the much-loved Paris Boutique Apartments, the Boulangerie Studio adopts their iconic, fun style. Chequered floors and a red, white and blue colour scheme are a charismatic nod to Paris, while playful artwork pays tribute to the studio's roots as a bakery. You get a little kitchenette with a breakfast bar, so in the mornings you can pop out for pastries and then bring them back to your petit boulangerie to feast. If only all days began like that.


  • Rates are good value for such a convenient location
  • This is a friendly neighbourhood with great cafes and restaurants; the Eiffel Tower is a 30-minute walk away, two Metro stations are 2 minutes' walk away
  • The owners provide an excellent service, sharing secrets on the best restaurants and tourist-free must-sees
  • The playful styling that hints at the studio's former life as a Parisian bakery


  • At 20m2, this is a small space - no room for kids' beds or cots
  • The kitchenette is perfectly functional for rustling up breakfasts but there is limited cooking space and no oven, so you probably won't be dining in for other meals
  • The studio is on street level, so you might hear some comings and goings from outside

Best time to go

Paris is worth the trip whatever the season. Expect pleasantly warm sunshine but bigger crowds in early summer (May and June). July and August are quieter but it can be hot, and lots of places close in August. Watch out for fashion weeks (January, July and late September) when things can get busy.

Our top tips

For your morning pastry run, Boulangerie Roulleau Mouzouri is the place to go. It's just around the corner from the studio, a 2-minute walk away.

This bijou one-bed studio is cleverly thought out and makes good use of space. The main living area has a queensize bed - which we hear is supremely comfortable - a little sofa, a kitchenette with breakfast bar, and a wardrobe at the far end. At the back is the ensuite bathroom with a shower and a washing machine.

Colours are blue and cherry red, and the chequered bedspread and flooring look decidedly Parisian. Wall panelling adds elegance, exposed brick looks rustic. But best of all is the artwork that pays homage to the studio’s past life: a modern art painting of a patisserie chef, black and white photographs of the working bakery, and a ‘boulangerie’ sign splayed across the kitchen wall.

Features include:

  • Air conditioning
  • Central heating
  • Coffee / tea making
  • Hairdryer
  • Toiletries
  • TV
  • Washing machine
  • WiFi


Your kitchenette has a little fridge, microwave, one-ring hob, sink and a coffee machine. You won’t be cooking elaborate meals here but it’s got everything you need for rustling up dippy eggs or preparing sandwiches. For supplies, the nearest supermarket is Monoprix (2-minute walk), or you could pop to Grenelle Market which takes place every Wednesday and Sunday.

Boloungeries, cafes and restaurants are plentiful in this neighbourhood, and there are some excellent hidden gems nearby: L'insoumise excels in simple homecooking; Perlamatta serves up delicious Italian fare; Bistrot Chic is great for gourmet meals.

  • Lose yourself in the 15th arrondissement and explore real Parisian life – cafes, restaurants, and eclectic shopping abound along the Rue du Commerce
  • The Île aux Cygnes (Isle of Swans), located downriver from the Eiffel Tower, is best known for its replica of the Statue of Liberty, but there's also a lovely tree-lined avenue perfect for a leisurely stroll or jog. Access is via the pedestrian level of the Pont de Bir Hakeim bridge
  • Located on the banks of the River Seine, beside the Eiffel Tower, the Musée du quai Branly (Jacques Chirac Museum) features fabulous collections of indigenous art from Africa, Asia, Oceania and the Americas
  • The Musée Bourdelle is a lesser-known gem nearby, housing bronze and marble sculptures created by sculptor Antoine Bourdelle. You can visit his studio, gardens and workshops, and it's all completely free
  • Of course you can get a knockout view of Paris from the Eiffel Tower, but if you want a vista with the famous landmark in it too, head up to the observation deck of the Tour Montparnasse, which is likely to be far quieter
  • You can reach Paris' major sights via Metro Line 8 (Champ de Mars, Champs-Elysees, tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, Opera Garnier) which stops close to the studio

Activities on site or nearby include:

  • Historical sites
  • Museums / galleries
  • Nightlife
  • Shopping / markets
  • Theatre


All ages are welcome but there is no space for extra beds or baby cots. This is a small studio aimed primarily at couples or solo travellers.
