Bonjour! Please note that your last photo is the work of a famous artist which is painted around a hotel room in the Hotel des Academies. This is NOT an apartment building. I stayed in this room from age 18 - 42. I know the owners. Please see the website below to learn more about the history of the artist and the hotel.

Hi again, this is a follow-up to my previous comment. Hotel des Academies is NOT located on rue Vavin. The precise address is 15, rue de la Grande Chaumiere. Stop by and check out the hotel.
