Great stay! Loved the apartment and the location!

  • 5 of 5

This spacious 2 bedroom was perfect for my family of 4 including two grown kids....we thoroughly enjoyed the location being 2 blocks from metro and right in the heart of many good restaurants to choose from. The terrace was also enjoyable! Loved it

The cons outweighed the pros

  • 2 of 5

I will start with the pros: They allowed early check in and met us at the door upon our arrival. The location is perfect and the apartment is very charming. Everything about the area was wonderful - shopping, restaurants, close to sights and metro. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked with utensils and necessities. There is a large Jacuzzi bathtub (but we didn't get to use it - see cons).

The cons: The temperature in the apartment was cold and we were instructed to not change the thermostat. After day two there was no hot water. The management company called someone right away. The first person to arrive was perplexed and had to call a second person. While we were out, they thought they fixed it. But after the maintenance, there would be hot water for about 60 seconds then very cold water. We had to sponge bath in cold water and wash our hair over the tub edge (thankfully there was a hand held) - it was miserable.

The noise from the street is loud, but I would not consider that a con as you are in the heart of Paris and noise is to be expected. The larger bedroom has blackout shades which was a nice feature. Being a beautiful historic building, the floors are quite creeky, so you can hear every step from the upstairs neighbors, but to us that was part of the charm.

There is no place to hang your clothes; however, there is some drawer space available.

The apartment has had cats living in it (you can faintly smell them) - I am very allergic and that caused me to need to hit the pharmacy for some antihistamine. But it was manageable.

We stayed 5 nights. Not being able to bathe really put a damper on our very pricey vacation - we did our best to carry on but I did share my frustrations with the management who has said they will reach out to the owner and see what they can do to give us a discount. I think we are very deserving of a significant discount - we shall see what the owner thinks.

If you can be assured that everything is in working order, I would still recommend this apartment.

Owner's Response: Hi Kiersten B. Thank you for your feedback. We feel that your feedback, when reflecting the truth (the boiler did break during your stay) did not mention some very important points but does mention others that are not accurate. We are used to provide high quality level of service to renters and could have helped you right away if you had mentioned it to us before. You said in your review that “After day two there was no hot water”. The first time you complained about it on the antepenultimate day of your stay, after having spent already 4 days in the apartment. We did react this same day. We called the owners to have them know about the problem and about the possible compensation to make up for this situation. Then, you mentioned that the apartment had cats living in and that you could smell it. Here is our answer to this and we already sent you the below response by email a few days ago: “The apartment has had cats living in it (you can faintly smell them)”: the owner loves cats but her cat died in 2004, so yes, she has a paint of it in the kitchen & a door mat showing 2 cats, but there have been no cats living or even entering the apartment since 2004, also knowing that the apartment was totally renovated in 2014.” We hope you still could enjoy Paris despite the above issue and that will only keep the good memories of your stay. For our future renters who read this review, please know that the refund was already processed. The full heating system will be changed in February so this problem should not happen again in the future. Again, sorry you had to deal with such an issue as we of course know you would have preferred a functionning heater instead of a compensation.

Beautiful apt with a fantastic location, both beds are full size (not queen or king)

  • 4 of 5

It was easy to communicate with the rental service and they were very kind. The apartment is bright, perfectly stocked & well decorated. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and feeling a part of the vibrant community, as well as heading out to explore from such a great location. The thing that made it 4 stars instead of 5 for us is the size of the beds. They are both full size, and my husband and I are each ~6 feet tall. In the heat of August with no air conditioning (which we knew and expected), we were left with 2 choices - sleep absolutely right next to each other in a full size bed and add our body heat to the heat in the apartment, or sleep in separate beds. Neither option was great. There is no mention of bed size in the listing and that is something we will be asking from now on.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review on the apartment. We did suffer of the heat waves this year as you mentioned. We do understand your statement. The apartment has no A/C and although we provided many fans, the temperatures were a bit exceptionnal... Paul and the GLAMAPARIS team

Perfect experience!

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment in the heart of Marais: spacious, clean, luminous, and at two minutes walking from Saint Paul's charming square and tube station. In our opinion this is the best place to stay in Paris. Marais is full of attractions, with lots of restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets, shops, museums. Others attractions at walking distance include the River Seine, Hotel de Ville Square, Île de la Cité, Place des Voges, Bastille, Beaubourg, Louvre museum...

The apartment is exactly as described at the site. We were four at the apartment and the two big bedrooms and two bathrooms were perfect for us. Everything was very convenient inside the apartment and worked perfectly. The building lift is a plus, and it makes all the difference when you have to take your luggage up (and down!).

The contact with the owner's representatives was quick and easy at any time and we are very grateful to all of them.

The only thing that one should consider before deciding to stay in a property at rue de Rivoli is that it is a quite noisy street. Nothing that the doble glass windows can't solve. For us that was not a problem at all.

We certainly recommend this property and if we ever go back to Paris, we will certainly stay there again!

Wonderful 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment conveniently located near the Metro and bus line and shopping

  • 4 of 5

Apartment has a well stocked kitchen with comfortable living space in addition to bedrooms and baths. Bedrooms are nice. Shower area in one of the bedrooms is very small. We had some difficulty with the washer/dryer in that it can only handle a very few articles of clothing. Apartment is located on rue de Rivoli which is a very busy street. We stayed in July and the apartment does not have air conditioning causing us to leave the windows open. Extremely noisy until very late in the night. Internet connection does not work in the back bedroom but does connect in the front bedroom and living area. The metro is only a short walk away as is the bus line which can take you to the Louvre and many other of the sites.

So beautiful!! The location was fabulous and the metro was very close.

  • 5 of 5

I would stay here again in a heartbeat. Beautiful apartment, everything was close. We never had to hire a taxi or driver, as the metro got us everywhere we needed to go quickly.
