Bien situé dans le centre de Paris

  • 5 of 5

Cet appartement est bien situé dans le centre de Paris, à 30 secondes de Chatelet-Les Halles. Il est parfait pour un petit séjour à deux dans la capital. Il est équipé avec tout ce qu’il faut – linge, serviettes, shampooing, savon, etc. Il y a meme une petite cuisine si vous souhaitez preparer un repas à la maison ou bien votre petit café du matin. La communication avec Paul et son équipe était parfaite. À recommender.

Great Location and value

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent a lovely week in this centrally located apartment. The large train station of Chatelet Les Halles is just metres away so you have easy links all around the city. We were able to take the metro from the airport (CDG) to the apartment with no problems. This area of Paris has been recently renovated and is very beautiful with lots of shopping optinos. Apartment was well maintained. The owner’s assistant met us and helped to carry our bags upstairs. I would highly recommend staying here if you want a central location whilst on a tight budget, it’s an incredible value!

Nice and cozy apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this cozy apartment in central Paris. We chose the apartment because of its proximity from the Louvre museum and also because we liked that the apartment is on the pedestrian street. The apartment has met our expectations as it looked just like on the photos, had a fully equipped kitchen (we used it for 3 breakfasts, 2 lunches and 2 dinners during our 6 day stay) and I personally particularly liked that there was a bath in the bathroom, not a shower like in majority of other places. Overall, very positive experience!

Great small apartment in a lively neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My son and I spent a week in this apartment. It is just as described. We managed to be in Paris during the one week when the temperatures hit the mid-90s. I was concerned about staying in an apartment without air-conditioning, but we arrived to find one fan in the apartment and had another one brought to us. The two fans kept the apartment cooled off during the day and at night. The apartment is very quiet as it is on the backside of the building. The neighborhood is extremely lively-busy-touristy. If you are looking for an apartment in a quiet neighborhood, this is not the place to be. If you want to be able to step out of the building and be in the thick of things, then this is a good place to stay. I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Merci, Susan, for taking the time to write nice a review. We are glad to know you and your son enjoyed the very central location of the flat and the easy access to the public transports. The neighborhood is lively but the flat itself is very quiet so you get the best of both worlds. The temperatures in Paris were unusually high and we were happy to provide you with fans to help you stay cool. We do hope you will come and visit again soon as it would be a pleasure to host you and provide you with a returning guest discount. Merci beaucoup!

Centrally located Apartment--Near Pompidou, Les Halles--Many stairs

  • 3 of 5

Centrally located apartment. Minutes away from des Halles and the Pompidou Center. Close to Chatelet Metro station and bus routes. Lots of neighborhood cafes and restaurants. Very walkable to most venues. Good for 1-3 days visit to Paris.

Typically furnished Paris apartment but a very small bathroom. Requires many flights of stairs to reach--1st is a steep stairs, then cross hallway, across outside patio, then 3 or could be 4 flights of stairs to apartment.

Not for seniors nor with large pieces of luggage.

Note: Must close windows at night if watching TV; central shaft acts as amplifier and upstairs resident does not like noise.

Owner's Response: Bill, merci for taking the time to submit a review on your rental experience with us. We are glad to know you enjoyed the very central location of the flat and that you were able to walk to many parts of Paris from there. The bathroom is standard Parisian size but still has all the amenities you could need. While there are many stairs to reach the apartment, we are always happy to assist guests with their luggage. We appreciate you being respectful of the neighbours whilst watching TV at night. We do hope you'll be in touch the next time you come to Paris as we would be glad to host you in one of our many apartments and provide you with a discount for renting with us a second time. Nos meilleurs salutations!

Fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved this property. It must be centuries old, but certainly updated and comfortable. It is easy to walk to many sites and the Metro station in just out the door. There are plenty of easy, casual places to eat and drink in the area, as well as shopping. I would say it was a fun, youthful location.

The apartment was clean and well appointed. As it is located in the interior of the building, it is very quiet. We were there during the European football tournament and there were lots of bars catering to the football crowd until quite late at night, and we could not hear them inside.

The only pitfall is the stairs. They are narrow and three flights with two being circular. Managing suitcases is somewhat difficult, but we found it fun as well as challenging without the bags. This is addressed in the description, so we knew to expect the stairs.

There were three of us - grandparents and an almost 13 year old. She felt the futon was comfortable and she had her privacy. She was also very intrigued by the location.

I would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Diane, merci beaucoup for taking the time to submit a review. We are glad to know you enjoyed the flat and its extremely central location. It's true that it remains very quiet while being in the heart of the city which is something rare in a city like Paris. We do mention the stairs in the listing and while the flat is not recommended for those with mobility issues, other guests do not ave a problem. Our Welcoming Team is always happy to assit you with getting your luggages upstairs. We hope you will reach out the next time you come to Paris as we would be happy to host you again in this flat or suggest that you try another one of our apartments to explore a new area of Paris. À bientôt!
