amazing time

  • 5 of 5

avel about 3 times a year to Paris for business. Convenience is my

priority. This is my first time at the Xavier Privas, I find it to be

perfect. Last year, I rented at the 5th Arrondissement around rue Mouffetard

but it was just too far. From the Xavier Privas, I can walk everywhere. It

is safe walking around the area, unlike sine of the other neighborhoods. The

studio was meticulously clean. Samy was so polite, always answering by "yes

sir" & "no sir", a kind of courtesy that we are unaccustomed to in the US.

Great location! Very quiet!!!

  • 4 of 5

We like the place, we were 2 sisters traveling together. If you want 2 beds the place is very small for that. It’s on the 3rd floor, no elevator. It was comfy, very small but enough. The location is perfect. 2 blocks to Notre Dame, walking distance to all sites. Bakery and restaurants all around. The room has a Nespresso machine, you can buy the pods in the store near by. I will ask for extra blankets, pillows and towels.

We will definitely stay there again!

Very disappointed.

  • 1 of 5

Though not dirty, the place was so run down as to give that impression. The sheets that were provided for the bed were torn in multiple places, they had a Nespresso machine with no pods, the hair dryer did not work(and worse when you tried to turn it on smelled like it was going to catch fire). There was black mold around the window which led to feeling of being very run down and dirty.

The marketing for this suggests that you have a view of Notre-Dame... not true. In fairness the location is fun.

The last thing, is that there was a “building fee” that we did agree to pay... in our contact it clearly said 40 euros. A note was left reminding us to leave 45 euros. It seems a shady enterprise that over markets itself as much more than it delivers.

We have stayed in vacation rentals before,

And enjoyed them very much. As we had no alternative in place, we stayed out of the room as much as possible, and were happy to get a hotel for the remainder of our Paris visit.

It will sadly be hard to forget this rental.

Owner's Response: It is illegal to rent apartments in Paris and we certainly do not deserve this toxic review when we are a legal entity and a not-for-profit association. We offer extremely low-priced accommodation. We hardly cover our expenses. What is important is that it is a safe location, walking distance to everything, at the lowest possible expenses. Again, we are not a rental business.

Location was great! It lived up to the description; small and cozy.

  • 3 of 5

It worked out well because of the easy access to the metro and the great variety of restaurants. It felt safe and secure. The last minute bombardment of over the top detailed information provided by the owner was a bit much and so were the unexpected extra charges.

Amazing location!

This apartment was everything they promised. Everything was easy and went smoothly. It was really nice coming right out onto such a wonderful street in the Latin Quarter.

Location

You will be in the heart of historic Paris, walking distance to all monuments and site seeings, cafe sipping at terraces. We recomend a boat trip on La river Seine... Magical!
