This apartment is perfect for visitors who want to be in the very centre of the historic Paris, with everything in easy walking distance.
Comfortable, clean, and a couple of blocks away from the Pompidou Center. Apartment is very well set up, with all the modern amenities you crave to make you feel at home. We are a family of four, three adults and my 10 years old daughter, and the flat provided enough room and comfort for our weary bodies after a full day of walking this beautiful city. Laurence, the owner, was gracious and an excellent communicator. I recommend her property wholeheartedly if you want a charming and welcoming retreat from which to explore this old town.
My wife and I spent four nights in this charming little apartment. It is exactly as described, and pictured, in the listing. It is well-situated in a vibrant neighborhood, filled with eateries, shops, markets, and beautiful public spaces. It is steps away from the Metro, and within an easy walk of any number of attractions. The apartment was well-appointed and spotlessly clean; the neighborhood is fun and friendly. Laurence, the owner, is gracious and hospitable, and very accessible. She communicated with us frequently throughout the rental process, and always responded promptly to our questions. She greeted us upon our arrival at the apartment, and provided us with all manner of helpful tips to make our stay even more enjoyable. The apartment is an excellent value, and Laurence is a delight to work with--we recommend it highly.
First of all, I would like to thank the owner Laurence for everything! She is very accommodating, friendly, and helpful. Me and my husband and two adult children really enjoyed our 10-day stay in her lovely and very cozy apartment. We did not regret one single day. This was our first time renting an apartment and Laurence made everything easy and flawless from the start. She answered every question I had prior to booking and arrival. She communicated regularly with me, providing excellent information and recommendations in advance. The photos described the apartment PERFECTLY- and the apartment and its location is JUST AS DESCRIBED by the owner. Whether its your first or sixth times in Paris you would LOVE staying here!!! No matter what age group you belong to or what interests you have, you will be sure to have a great time here - very centrally located and just the perfect place to explore Paris! The apartment is VERY CLEAN and we felt very comfortable right away- you would feel at home as soon as you walked in the apartment. It is very secure and the neighbors are very friendly when you meet them in the entrance hallway. We never had any problems getting a good night's sleep. I would also like to mention that Laurence helped me with contacting the shuttle service to confirm our arrival in Paris. She would go out of her way to help you, so do not hesitate to ask her. THANK YOU, Laurence for making our visit to Paris wonderful experience! YOU ARE THE BEST!!!!
We had a wonderful 3 days in Paris. This is the perfect spot for exploring - 2 minutes walk from Notre Dame and the Seine. We walked to the Arc de Triomphe and across to the Eiffel Tower which was lovely. The apartment is spotlessly clean and was perfect for the four of us. Others have said before, but we can also confirm that Laurence is a wonderfully welcoming and helpful host! We could not have asked for more and would recommend this apartment wholeheartedly - and hope to be back. Many thanks
This apartment is just as described by the owner. The location is perfect, within easy walking distance to everything you need as well as the metro and many of the major tourist sights.
