This was the first time I’d rented rather than stay in a hotel in Montparnasse. I will be renting from now on. The Edouard Jacques apartment has everything one needs for a short or extended stay. It is in a quiet area (for Paris) and near many places to eat or buy food. Very convenient to the Gare Montparnasse as well as the Metro and busses. Easy walk up one floor. The apartment feels more spacious than the photos. We have stayed in Hotel Aiglon (4 stars) previously, and this is my choice from now on.
