Excellent! With one caution
We chose this property because of its view and good location. Both turned out to be excellent. The expansive view of the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides were lovely by day and spectacular at night. The neighborhood was filled with cafes, restaurants, patisseries and a grocery store. Across the street is Gare Montparnasse, a major train station with metro and bus access to the entire city and train service to places beyond Paris as well as quick direct transportation to and from both major airports.
The space was small but very cleverly used, with the entire kitchen hidden behind cabinet doors, and tasteful sliders separating bed from sitting area. The shower was large and modern, as were all the appliances and fixtures. Overall we were delighted with our stay here. Morning coffee on the deck with its majestic view of iconic Paris added immense joy to our time in that city.
There were some small, easily fixable issues. The bed had a terrible smell, which we traced to a mattress cover with a plastic coating. We removed it and set it out on the balcony. After that the bed was fine and very comfortable. A more troublesome matter was that the phone didn’t work. At least I couldn’t make it work. We didn’t have mobile phones that work in France. Fortunately, the wi-fi was fine, so we made plans with friends in Paris via email instead of phone, which was somewhat awkward and time-consuming. We could find no toilet paper beyond the one on the roller, and the soap dispenser in the bathroom was all but empty. All these matters are easily fixable and wouldn’t in any way prevent us from happily returning.
The one caution that’s not so easily fixable is that the apartment has no cross ventilation. We arrived in early June on a day when the outside temperature was 27-deg C (about 80 deg F). The apartment was hot. Even opening the balcony slider didn’t help, and neither did opening the hall door, because the hall was worse. Fortunately, the weather cooled down overnight and the next few days were fine outside and inside. While I’d eagerly rent again in moderate months, I’d be concerned about July and August. At the very least an electric fan might be helpful. That said, judging only from our personal experience in this apartment I have no hesitation in giving it five stars.
We had an amazing time at this place. We wanted a convenient location for my wife and myself during our time in Paris, and especially with a view. I must say that every other review stated how amazing the view is but you just can't comprehend the beauty until you visit this place. Looking out through the window during the day for the first time upon arrival was incredible, but the real magic came with our first sight of the tower at night - absolutely breath-taking. The rest of the place was fantastic as well - comfortable bed, nice bathroom/shower. Small toilet area but not a huge deal. Plenty of nice kitchenware and a small kitchen area to prepare stuff (we loved coming home with wine/bread/cheese and eating it inside/outside on the deck. We came in May so the outside temperature wasn't too bad but the room would get somewhat warm in the evenings, even with the windows open (just be aware) - but not a dealbreaker. And again, the view is absolutely incredible and worth every penny. If you are looking for a great location, reasonable price, and jaw-dropping view of the Eiffel Tower, look no further and reserve this place. Thank you so much for a fantastic trip! Also FYI, receiving our security deposit back very quickly after the trip. Seamless.
Great location, arrangements went smoothly, very clean. 4th stay. Needs some new furniture.
Great apartment in the perfect neighborhood. Owners have very easy to work with.
AMAZING VIEWS!!!! The Eiffel Tower looks much closer in person than shown in the pics. Beautiful views, especially at sunset and at night when the Eiffel lights up! I couldn't get over the views! The apartment was very nice also! Very clean and well kept. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony with some wine and watching the Eiffel Tower light up every night! The owners have a pamphlet available with instructions and recommendations that are very helpful! There is also a page of common French words and sayings. I definitely recommend looking that over and taking a picture to have with you. The metro is also right across the street basically. I can't say enough about this place! Very nice and the views!!!
First off, the view can't be topped. The room was very roomy and great looking. We spent 4 nights there and loved every moment. If we come to Paris again, I would book here in a heartbeat.
Nice view, good location, needs A/C
We stayed here for 4 nights at the end of April. The view is fantastic as is the location. Very quiet. Metro is across the street which is awesome. The owner is very helpful and responsive to needs or issues which I appreciated. This apartment does not have air conditioning - the first 2 nights we were there it was very warm for April, highs around 80 degrees. While not that hot outside, this apartment retains a ton of heat and has no cross-ventilation making it nearly impossible to cool it off when there’s a nice breeze outside. We were very hot at night despite the sliding door being left open. This place would be completely unbearable in the summer. My only other complaints are that there are only 2 bath towels and the shower has mold growing in the corners - could be cleaner. Also, for some reason the cold water supply comes out very hot and has to be run for about 5 minutes or more to get cold water - very strange.
