Amazing location, great space, perfect for our trip!
We really enjoyed this place! Slept the four of us (two shared a bed) and offered the access we needed to Paris without being in a super touristy area!
Terrible Experience with an Unresponsive Host
Communication with the host was good until when it mattered most - when we showed up at the apartment. In the overview of the apartment listing she says "I will be there to welcome you when you arrive to give you the keys and show you the functioning of the apartment." In her email 4 days before we arrived she said "Perfect I will be there at 2pm to welcome you". In an email the day before check-in she gave us the access codes for the street door and courtyard door. She also told us where the key would be but never said anything about not meeting us at 2p. Showed up at 2p, lugged our bags all the way up to the Floor 4 (that's the 5th floor in US buildings) with no elevator, looked for the keys where we were told they would be and nothing. Knocked on the door and nothing. A kind neighbor back on Floor 1 tried calling both her phone numbers and nothing. Waited half an hour in case she was running late and nothing. Found a bar with wifi access and tried contacting her via email and nothing. Got on the phone with HomeAway/VRBO Help and spent over 1 ½ hours with them; they tried calling her and nothing. After 2 ½ hours we get an email suggesting we check a different location for the keys. Walked back to the apartment, back up all the stairs and the keys were in the second location. We lost 3 hours of our afternoon trying to get into the apartment. I never received a response to any of my subsequent emails to her during the remainder of our stay. Communications with Anne-Sophie were non-existent while we were in the apartment - I think she was away on her own vacation and did not care about us.
Back to the issue of the stairs. The listing overview says "You enter through a beautiful entrance and paved courtyard, the apartment is located at the bottom of this court, very quiet." Nowhere in the overview does it say it is on Floor 4 although reading some of the past reviews indicate stairs are involved. Getting to Floor 3 was not an issue, the stairs were wide and of normal tread height/depth. The last flight of steps were the issue - they were not only narrow but the treads were not deep enough to accommodate one's whole foot. I want to post pictures but do not see a way to do so. The apartment smelled of smoke and I found a flower pot with cigarette butts outside a window. The dryer did not work. No soap or shampoo. Always felt like I would hit my head. No curtain on the bathroom window. I suggest you look elsewhere!!!
Beautiful place, amazing location!
Love the views out the windows...you know your in Paris. The accommodations were all we expected. Communication was easy. The location is the best. Stairs are challenging if not fit.
Lovely & ideal location, quiet apartment, friendly staff
Neighborhood was very quaint and yet bustling. Quiet courtyard that lights up at night like a palace when you enter (motion sensor!). Lots of stairs (first time might wind you, but you’ll quickly adapt!). An electric fan was provided...and with the windows open, we were all quite comfortable (even during 37 degree weather). Curtains have been placed for privacy, darkness, & shade with extra supplied (we did not use). We had plenty of towels for 4 people (I assume they are attempting to respond to clients’ demands, which is nice!) . They seemed to be in need of hand soap (there was only a small amount of dish soap...but we just went next door to Lush & bought our own soap - really fun time actually!) — also, no shampoo. Additionally, there were no hand or paper towels in the kitchen (we used an extra towel that was in the closet that MAY have been intended for use in the kitchen/bathroom sink?). Otherwise, the apartment was perfect for us! We loved nearby Au Petit Versailles du Marais, Yann Couvreur Patisserie, Creperie Suzette, Restaurant Le Trésor, and Chez Julien. The staff at the apartment were also very warm & inviting and extremely helpful (we met them when dropping off our luggage early). They even made up a bed for our children behind the couch that was perfect...so hidden we didn’t even realize it was there until we went to bed that night! The kids loved it! We would definitely stay again, if they will have us! :)
Lovely apartment in a fantastic location to see Paris!
I stayed with my two teens for 5 nights in mid-July. It was hot, but we opened the windows and slept fine. We each had our own sleeping area once we laundered some sheets and made up the sofa (there was a mattress made up for us behind the sofa when we arrived plus the bedroom, but we wanted a third bed.). The flat is really well-done, clean and comfortable. Low on a few supplies such as toilet paper and no kitchen dishtowel. Bathroom curtain was not yet properly installed and dryer wasn't working, but we managed just fine. Perfect location to enjoy Paris! I wasn't sure how I would feel about being on a 5th floor walk-up (considered 5th floor in US, 4th floor in France), but it was not a problem for us. We dug the authentic feel of the place and lovely view into the courtyard. Anne-Sophie was great and even organized our 4am car to the airport. Amazing value for the location.
Great Location but amenities advertised lacking
Location was great and the apartment was clean and quiet despite a busy neighborhood and it stayed cool with the fan during the hot days/nights.
However, many items were lacking that were advertised. There were no extra towels, or bedding. No Nespresso maker. No hand towels/dish cloth/paper towels/napkins. No toiletries or toilet paper (only 1/2 roll provided for 4 people). The dryer did not work and the key was sticky in the door lock. We chose this apartment because it has multiple bed options so our teenagers could have their own beds but there was no bedding to make the sofa bed or the chair bed up. We reached out for additional towels and bedding and dish cloth and as a result, 1 cloth placemat was dropped off! Which seem inadequate for the need. If the bedding for the sofa, toilet paper, and additional hand towels/dish cloth had been dropped off for our 4 day visit we would give this apartment as higher rating as the apartment was clean and the photos accurate.
