Take advantage of this compact studio apartment, situated in Paris' 16th arrondissement in the Maison de la Radio area. Being on the top floor of an 8-story (considered 9-story by Americans) building just a block from the Seine gives great views and allows plenty of light to brighten the space. While there is no elevator, the building does benefit from a digicode system and a concierge at the entrance.
You can really make this "studette" apartment (9 SQM) your own by adding a few original touches, but it is classically furnished with all the basics already! You have a single size bed, a dining table that can also be used as a desk, a shelving unit for storing books or clothes, a small cabinet for putting things out of sight, and even an open closet next to the entry for hanging clothes. Above the kitchenette there are shelves for dishes and pans, and two burners, a sink and a small fridge allow you to cook at home. The private shower is opposite the open closet next to the entrance, however PLEASE BE AWARE that there is no private toilet within the studio; instead there are two toilets off of the hallway corridor that are shared amongst the inhabitants of the floor (see floorplan). Perhaps the best part of this functional apartment are the windows, allowing in light from the east each day, and giving a great view onto the Seine River. You can even see the Statue de la Liberté (Statue of Liberty) perched on the man-made island of the Île aux Cygnes, a smaller replica of the iconic monument given to America by the French in New York City.
Downstairs from your studio and outside your building you will find yourself just two blocks from the Maison de la Radio, what this area is known as. This building houses the headquarters of Radio France, as well as a museum showing the history of broadcasting and telecommunications, and is itself quite a unique structure worthy of a visit. In the surrounding Trocadéro - Auteuil - Passy areas, you will find many of the lycées of Paris that offer prep classes for entry into the city's "Grandes Ècoles" (equivalent of the US "Ivy League" universities). You also have nearby access to the metro and Paris' left bank ("rive gauche") found just south along the Avenue de Versailles. The Mirabeau station is about 400 meters away (just a little over a quarter mile), and gives acces to Line 10, which will connect you to the RER C (going to Versailles) in just one stop, as well as all the way to Saint Germain des Près, a popular place for young people with many bars, restaurants and shops. If you are walking and cross the Pont Mirabeau, you can head a few blocks south to the lovely Parc André Citroën (1.2 km or 3/4 of a mile), a great place for jogging or admiring its gardens and unique gas balloon that rises as it fills to give you views all over Paris. If you head north after the bridge, you'll run into the famed Eiffel Tower, or at least catch a glimpse of its sparkling peak in the evenings. In the immediate vicinity of your intersection (Avenue de Versaille & Rue Pierre Louys), there are a variety of bars, small restaurants and brasseries, perfect for when you need a night out but don't want to go far!
