The location is ideal; close to Metro stop, and within a few steps of great restaurants with authentic French cuisine. Looks of shopping options close by, short walk to major museums and silk companies. There are many stairs, but good exercise, and as the apt is in the middle of a hillside it was cool despite 100 deg temperatures outside. Great hostess, and friends who helped us get luggage up and down stairs and provided transportation to airport for a fee. We would stay there again.
