The main part of Rue de l'Universite where everyone visits appears to be the end where the Eiffel tower is. Here, you get a really cool view and instagrammable photo of the Eiffel Tower between the buildings. Looks really cool.

Very long street near the river on the Left Bank lined with very fancy residences and hotels, some shops and restaurants. Classy address.

I walked along the Rue de l’Universite today on my way from the Eiffel Tower to the Musee de l’Armee and found the Rue to be unassuming, with nothing to really see. I wouldn’t count it as a tourist attraction or anything to go and visit. Give it a miss.

A long street designed parallel to the River Seine it joins the crossroad Rue Jacob- Rue des Saints Peres. From the route Eiffel it traversed the Esplanade des Invalides. It is known to have many Universities along this street and the different Embassies As far as the point from Esplanade des Invalides the Eiffel tower can still be seen.…

This was a most unsatisfactory experience. My advice is for prospective renters to use caution here. We contracted to Rent 211 rue Universite for 6 days at $300 per day paid up front. We found the rental through Air BNB which we have successfully used many times.The property is one of many in the stable of a group known as Parisaddress of 146 Rue Montmartre 75002 Paris. The host for this address is named FABIEN. The property is a short walk from and with a view of the Eiffel tower. We did not get to set foot on the premises. Our Host FABIEN sent an employee to meet us On arrival we were informed that the lift in the large 8 story building was not working and we would be temporarily relocated to an apartment elsewhere until it was repaired. We were taken to a substandard apartment with basic amenities in a very average side street in the 14th Arrondissiment. The property was unsuitable, with peeling paint and mouldy windows gapped floorboards with dirt and detritus in between and a number of other serious deficiencies. It was noisy, located in a closed in building block and looking into other residents windows. Still it was temporary and it was late in the day. We are both in our mid seventies and wanted property with a lift. This property was on the first floor with winding stairs. Within two hours of arriving we received an Email from FABIEN advising that as the lift was not working in the original property he had relocated us and that we would not have to pay any additional rent for the new property. Has this been planned we began to wonder. This was a place worth about $70.00 odd per day. There had been no discussion or agreement as to a rental amount for our short stay in this temporary property A stern Email letting FABIEN know that we did not want to be permanently located in this temporary place. His response was that the lift repair was beyond his control and that he would pay us a refund. After further communication it became obvious that we were stuck in his dump of a place. Our intended pleasant stay in the heart of Paris to end a great European holiday did not finish as we had planned. To cap it off FABIEN charged us $200 per day for the rent of his substandard Property (photo’s available) repaying a pitiful $525.00. To day FABIEN has failed to respond to my email requesting him to revisit the matter of the amount of refund We feel we have been exploited.…
