General :

Key2paris is located in Quartier Montorgueil near Les Halles market, which is the oldest and main food market of Paris since the XIIth century.


Rue d’Argout was previously called  “rue des Augustins” (Monastery in the neighborhood since Louis IX, Saint Louis). It is  mentioned in some writing in 1450. Its name comes from Antoine Maurice Apollinaire d’Argout (1782-1858), who was Secretary of Marine under King Louis Philippe and Governor of Banque de France under Napoeon III.


key2paris building is an XVIIth to  XIXth century building, with a remarkable stairwell. The building is continuously renovated and maintained to keep it's history while meeting up -to-date standards.

key2paris is at the rear of this building with a view on the charming planted cobblestone courtyard. This location in the building assures you of quiet nights. Moreover, the whole neighborhood is semi-pedestrian!

And during the day, you may enjoy a bustling "quartier" as soon as you push the elegant wooden gate.


The flat is on a secured ground floor (1st floor US). You have 2 codes to enter the courtyard and windows are protected.  It is easy for your luggage, your shopping and resting after a long day.
