Not a good value, could be cleaner.
I was in Paris with my family and decided to rent a place (I normally stay in hotels when there for work - and I travel there often). Neighborhood is nice and close to Luxembourg Gardens but apartment is quite expensive for what it is. The pictures make it seem nicer and cleaner than it is. Rugs and bath mats were quite dirty. The apartment could be much cleaner and have nicer amenities (dishes, linens, hangers, etc.) for what they charged. Small details that would go a long way. And a new cleaning service. Given the rate I paid which I’m not allowed to mention in a review - safe to say - I felt GOUGED. I don’t mind spending that per night if it’s worth it. But this place sadly wasn’t. I have found the quality control on apartment rentals in Paris to be sorely lacking relative to other markets and VRBO would be better off if they had more protocols in place to protect the renter. I would not recommend renting here at the current price regrettably. The apartment managers were very nice to deal with and on time so no complaints there. More so about the condition and price/value relationship of the apartment. I don’t like to give bad reviews but was very disappointed.
Nice stay near Luxembourg Gardens
We had a nice stay in the clean and well furnished flat. Every cooking and household item was available that we needed including a great washer and dryer. Very safe neighborhood with many restaurants and shops in walking distance.
Apartment was okay; nothing special.
The apartment was clean and attractive enough. We had a few problems (door know fell off,l lamp did not work, in-house phone didn't work, bathroom sink had low water pressure.)and left several messages for owner and manager before they took care of them. Not a big deal, but not how I want to spend my vacation. This was the first time we rented an apartment; we prefer to stay in a hotel.
Very nice apartment and in a great location.
Overall, a good value.
Comfortable stay in a great location
The apartment was a little hard to ind once inside the door, but it was a nice bright home. The beds were comfortable and it was very clean when we arrived.
The bunk bed room is very small, however the beds were very comfortable. We had two adult women sleep in there and they had a nice sleep. It may be better suited for teenagers or young 20's, but it was not a problem.
It worked out very well. A nice touch is having a washer and dryer in the apartment.
Very spacious nice clean flat near the Luxembourg Gardens
We just wrapped up a five night stay at this flat and really enjoyed. Communications back and forth in advance we’re prompt, easy and very efficient. Same for the check in process.
The flat itself is very spacious and we loved the living room and nice sized bedrooms (two adults so only used two of the three bedroom ons as the bunk room is oretty small but still@; ok place for kids to crash). The kitchen table was great to and the overall kitchen worked fine (it wasn’t that well equipped if you’re looking for a great cook’s kitchen but we didn’t mind that as we only had breakfast at home and it was fine for that). Washer / dryer and dishwasher all worked well. The air conditioner was noisy as the compressor in these old buildings has to be located internally in a closet but it did cool the unit very well (and it was located near front door so you could close bedroom doors and sleep just fine). Mentioning the noise as I always prefer to know quirks upfront but it wasn’t a problem at all and my big thing 8s that it worked.
The elevator and access worked well and we enjoyed being close to the Luxembourg Gardens. It also was quiet since faced the courtyard but was very quiet with plenty of light.
Our only two cons to mention (and they would not at all impact our highly recommending this place):
1) the flat was very clean but overall a little banged up (bedding, paint, kitchen cabinets etc.). Still clean and comfortable, just setting expectations.
2) the location was good but frankly for what we like to we would maybe switch back to the right bank or closer to the Seine. While the gardens were great, a lot of the restaurants we frequent are in the 11th and it was really challenging to get to them. This likely wouldn’t impact everyone, it’s kust Paris traffic has gotten so much worse with all the construction.
Overall sticking with a five rating (versus a 4+) as the space of the apartment was great with the high ceilings and spacious bedrooms.
