Not worth it

  • 3 of 5

It was unfortunate that Ermel decided to deduct money from my deposit. Myself and a friend stayed in the property for 4 nights, one of the reasons booking it was because it had a sleeper couch where one of us could sleep. My friend used linen kept in a cupboard to make a comfortable bed at night. I am not sure why Ermel just assumed that we would be sharing a bed. Only 2 towels in total was left out for use, not even an additional hand towel. For the bathroom fan to work the light had to be kept on, which we didn't do during the day while we were out. The towels wouldn't dry and at the end of day two we had very wet soggy towels. We each took a towel from the cupboard.

I was informed by Ermel that he deducted the money as we used extra linen, to which I politely responded that I didn't agree to his decision as 2 towels for 4 days was simply not sufficient, and also that we booked the apartment so that one of us could sleep on the sofa and therefor needed the linen. I never heard back, I just didn't receive my full deposit back.

The apartment also smelled terribly of smoke and two ashtrays were found in the window still filled with butts and ash.

Ermel was there on arrival and was very good at explaining everything and showing me around - I can't fault him on this,

The location was perfect and walking distance from restaurants and bars.

However because of the unfortunate way the return of my deposit was handled I really do not recommend this apartment.

For the cost of the apartment one would expect sufficient towels and bed linens.

Owner's Response: Hello, you rented the apartment for 2 people. I got the apartment as if it had been occupied by 3 or 4 people. You stay 4 nights, the number of towels was sufficient, in addition you have available a washing machine and a tumble dryer. You reached into my personal wardrobe to take extra towels and a cloth dress. I did not appreciate. you could at least ask me. The pressing is not free. To the extent that you have lived in the apartment as if you were 3 or 4, I could charge you much. Do not worry, me neither, I do not want you to re-let my apartment again. cordially

Great apartment in a really fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

Fabulous small apartment in a fabulous location the Louvre was spitting distance and great restuarants steps from the door.

We walked absolute everywhere , but metro and bus nearby if you want .

Xavier was a great host welcoming us on an early arrival and leaving a welcome bottle of champagne and information left for sightseeing etc.

Would definitely recommend this little gem although only for couples with no children as the stairs to the loft bedroom would be a bit dangerous for small children.

Amazing rental!

  • 5 of 5

Can't beat this location! Right in the heart of Paris, few minutes walking distance from the Louvre and many great restaurants. Not very touristy so really got to feel part of the city. The apartment was great! Perfect for a couple!

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Xavier met as when we arrived and showed us the apartment. He even left a bottle of champagne for us to enjoy. The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The location was excellent and we had no trouble finding restaurants and food shops nearby. It was also an ideal location for seeing the sights of Paris by foot as we could walk to dozens of attractions. The washing machine was useful and the apartment was well equipped. I would recommend it.

Snug, but convenient and comfortable.

  • 4 of 5

This property is in a great location - close to Metro, the Louvre, cooking equipment shops, the pedestrian street Montorgueuil, and the new Les Halles shopping complex. The owner let us check in early and then met us at the time arranged. The only drawback to this rental is the size. If you have a week's worth of luggage, it is very snug. There is 100% reliable free wifi, English CNN and A/C in the bedroom, which was definitely necessary this time of year. The bed is also very comfortable. Served our needs very well.

Lovely apartment and fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

My partner and I had a fantastic 3 days in Paris and we loved this apartment. It was comfortable and clean and touches like the lights up the spiral staircase and the bottle of champagne that awaited us made it all the more memorable.

It is in a great location, about a 10 minute walk from the Louvre with the Pompidou Centre, Notre Dame, Opera house, Jardins des Tuileries all within walking distance. The metro is 5 mins away as is Les Halles station which goes straight to CDG airport.

Xavier was very quick to respond to all correspondence when booking/before our holiday and was really welcoming when we arrived. Would definitely stay again and I've already recommended it to friends of ours!
