Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We loved this apartment. It could have been 5 stars with a bit of maintenance, but the location alone merits a 4. It is centrally located near so many things – the Opera, the metro stop Quatre-Septembre right outside the door, one of the famous covered passages to the left, the grand boulevards a couple of blocks to the right. The living area separate from the bedroom is spacious which, in rainy January, was great to have.

Pros: Nice building on a relatively quiet street, large living area, clean bathroom with good shower and plenty of hot water and good lighting, ample towels, comfortable bed, functional kitchen and a TV with many channels.

Cons: The apartment could use some freshing up and does have some issues: the toilet paper holder is broken, the wallpaper in the bedroom is ripped, the washing machine has some big cracks in the trim, and the kitchen could use better silverware. We could not get the dishwasher to work and think the manager needs to take a look at it.

I would definitely stay here again, but hope that the cosmetic and functional issues will be addressed before that time.

Convenient location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in this apartment in the 2d arrondissement for a little over a week in October 2017, a good month to be there since it's cool enough to keep the windows closed most of the time. This helped to diminish the street noise, as did the solid wooden shutters. The apartment building is well-built so that we did not hear noise from other apartments.

The apartment is in a terrific, safe location, convenient to many museums, e.g., the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, Pompidou, to which we walked easily. There is a Metro station right at the end of the block as well, for more distant attractions.

We did most of our eating at home and shopped at the nearby Rue Montorgeuil which has excellent shops such as Stohrer's Bakery (founded in 1730!) with the best baguettes we've ever eaten. We were able to get top quality fruit and vegetables and there was a fine butcher too on that same street. There are also small markets near the apartment for such things as milk and juice.

The kitchen in the apartment had whatever equipment we needed to enable us to do our cooking, and the proprietor of the Nicolas wineshop, just steps away, recommended perfect matches for whatever we were eating that day. The bed was comfortable and the living room serviceable, though it did not have a particularly comfortable sofa or strong enough lights for reading. It was convenient to have two bathrooms--the toilet and a sink are in a separate small bathroom near the front door and the larger bath is right off the bedroom (sink, tub/shower only, no toilet).

The apartment is almost adjacent to a fun arcade and several others are within easy walking distance. Just exploring this part of Paris on foot is an enjoyable experience since the architecture of the old buildings is beautiful and fascinating.

When small problems arose, e.g., the elevator stopped running for a short time, the staff of the rental company were responsive and pleasant. The "manual" in the apartment was rather sketchy so we added what we hope were useful tips.

Does the job just fine

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent the last 4 nights of our 10 day honeymoon in this apartment. It was in a somewhat quiet neighborhood with stores close by to pick up groceries, wine, and coffee for the morning. Its very near the metro as well as being centrally located so we often decided to walk as attractions were in close proximity.

The apartment was ok. Its been worn in a bit and as this was our honeymoon thought it would be a touch nicer but worked for us.

**Note - the coffee shop was rented out for a private event on the Friday night that we were there and it was a party on the street until 3am.

Owner's Response: Bonjour Meredith, thank you for taking the time to submit a review. We are pleased to know you enjoyed the location of our apartment and that it worked out for your special trip to Paris. . This year, we've had a busier than normal tourist season in Paris. Therefore, we've realized this has put some additional wear on the apartment. As a result, we are taking a short break with the flat to address the maintenance and upkeep issues. We do apologize about the noise coming from the coffee shop down the street. Unfortunately we cannot control their behavior nor their events, but we have spoken with local authorities to see if they can do something to control the noise outside of normal hours. We wish you and your husband the best and many years of happiness together.

Comfy, Spacious and Spotless

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in a calm and safe area very close to the Opera house (something everyone should visit) . Cafes and shops all around and lots of great lunch places. Super comfortable bed in the bedroom and an excellent quality sofa bed in the living area. The kitchen has what you'd need to whip up something at home but we didn't make much use of it (between the croissants for breakfats, the baguettes at lunch and our dinners outside, there was not much time). I found it a bit difficult to get key out of door the first two days but after contacting Paul the issue was remedied quickly. I can happily recommend this flat which was comfy spacious and spotless.

PARFAIT

  • 5 of 5

We had a more than wonderful stay in this flat! The location is simply great, a 1 minute walk to the nearest Metro station, restaurants and shops nearby. The apartment itself is very cute and simple, perfect for a couple or a family with kids. It was cleaner than the hotel we stayed in for one night before arriving here. Paul was very helpful, kind and reactive in all of our email correspondences and his check in assistant, David was charming. We had such a lovely stay and definitely be back if we get visit Paris again!
