About InBP 6
We manage apartments in Paris, all of very good to luxury standard. We take care of the advertising of apartments, the reservation process from payments to security deposit refund; and even the cleaning and the maintenance of the apartment. We would be very happy to host you in one of our apartments that you will find on VRBO Listing #26870. We do very little brand name advertisement. We focus on what matters: MAKING SURE OUR GUESTS ARE SATISFIED (check the reviews on any of our apts. Recent apts do not have reviews yet). We believe it is the best way to develop our activities which have being growing steadily every year. You are welcome to try our service.
Why InBP 6 chose 18th Arrondissement
Finding a 4 bedroom triplex apartment in Paris with a Private courtyard is a unique opportunity. That tells it all :-) In addition, the location is perfect : calm and close to all the interesting sites of Montmartre. Many shops around. Also the quality of the building is rare as in Montmartre many building built in the past were not stone buildings. Finally it is a perfect place to visit paris from as subway takes you direct to saint germain in 10 Mn.
What makes this Apartment unique
WE ARE PROFESSIONALS. We answer to each request and send a detailed quote & contract on each request. We believe the instant quote given on the site is not precise enough for a guest to book an apt. We react fast, be it by mail (often in the hour, max 24h, we have evening shift), Immediatly by phone. Note we do not take booking on the phone nor discuss prices or availability, risk of mistake is too high. E-mail is much more secure & precise. We nevertheless are happy to answer specific questions. During your stay, we are always available. We can advise you on how to use the apt. We run a night emergency line, for real emergencies :-). When problem arise, we do our best to solve them, quickly. We want our guest to have the best memories of their stay. We have a high rate of returning guests : it seems they do.

No refunds for cancellations made after payment is made
A Big Mistake!
Wish I would have read "all" the reviews before I booked. Tried to cancel within 24 hours but was informed of the "NO Refund" policy.
There are so many issues with this property.
The check-in/check-out "key-hunt"; I love a good adventure/ puzzle as much as the next person, but not when my family is exhausted and just wanting to get into the house, and definitely not first thing in the morning when we are scrambling around trying to catch our flight.
After arriving you need to walk (or have cab/uber take you) to another location to get the key and then get back to the house (reverse on check-out). Now as the Mgr. will tell you the location is only something like 250 meters away, and while that may not sound like a lot, it is all hills and windy one way streets to get there (cabs/ uber drivers will not be happy). Once you do find the location and put in a code (based on a date formula), it is then 3 flights of winding/steep stairs to get to an area that is pitch black (depending on time), where you have to put in another code behind a panel to unlock your keys...then it's back up the hill to the house (about a 10 minute walk- once you know the way). Again, if I was well rested and I was up for an adventure, maybe I would enjoy the challenge, but no one wants that extra layer of stress on check-in/ check-out. All of the other properties (we stayed at), we could either p/u- leave the keys under a mat, or in a drop-box "on site" or have someone meet us to show us around...what a concept?!
Let's be honest, the only person this ridiculous system is convenient for is the Mgr. of the property who has to do absolutely nothing! Which is I'm sure the way they like it IMO.
2) There were spiders and cobwebs all over the house as well as bad peeling of paint in many of the rooms. It looked as though there have been no updates/renovations since the 1990s.
3) Not so much as a ten cent (mini) bar of soap to wash your hands when you arrive, let alone any other "basic" amenities. The only things that were there were things left over that were likely bought from the former renter (Laundry soap, etc..). Just like we did, after we had to buy "everything".
Also only 2 wastebaskets for the entire property and only in one bathroom. No wastebasket in the other 2 bathrooms! Seriously?
4) "0" communication from property Mgr. to see if we made it our any questions.
Only positives, nice location outside the city in Montmartre and good size for family.
Thanks you for this detailed review.
We do believe all review are usefull for us to improve the guests experience.
Thanks you for mentioning that the apt and its location are nice and good size for a family. Let us point out that this is a large positive part of the stay experience !
We understand that the self check in /out process was not at your liking. This is definitely a point of view that we respect.
Many of our guests like the process for 2 simple reasons : they never have to wait for the greeter and can check in or out at any time during the night.
Family generally send one member to pick up the key while the party is waiting in front of the Musee Montmartre. There is actually a nice bar inside.
We will add the recommendation to our instructions hoping it will ease the experience.
You may have noticed that we recommend our guest to call on arrival in case they have questions or issues. We would have been happy to send a maid and help you with any issue in the apt.
To build on your comment, we have asked the cleaning team to double clean possible mobs ( the ceilings are very high) and the maintenance to add the missing wastebaskets.
We hope that you enjoyed your stay during the week and will be happy to welcome you in one of the other apt we manage. Contact us in advance if you are sensitive to the check in process, we can advise closer ones or can always organize a physical check in on demand.
Lovely place in a great area of the city
This place is very comfortable and the listing is very accurate. Best French onion soup at Le Deli...house wine was my favorite. The house has instructions for everything.
5th and final stay at this property - will not book again
My company has booked this property multiple times as we travel to Paris twice a year for business. We returned many times due to the lovely location and number of bedrooms and bathrooms for the price, however the upkeep of this property has declined greatly and we will not return.
Main areas of concern :
- 1 set of keys - for a house that accommodates 6 adults, this is very inconvenient. We were a team of 4 and not always together so coordinating the key was not ideal. Also having the pickup/dropoff location for the key offsite is very inconvenient
- Only 1 towel/ handtowel was provided per guest. When we requested more we were told "this is not a hotel" and we could do laundry if we wanted fresh towels.
- Washing and drying a load of laundry took upwards of 3 hours as the dryer is VERY slow. We had to buy our own detergent - we only later found a small travel size container that was originally used for fashwash marked with a sharpie labeled "laundry" Assuming this is the soap they rationed to allow us to use.
- No bathmats in the tiled bathroom - I think this is a necessity as the tiles are very slippery when wet. We had to use the face towels provided.
- only 1 garbage bin is provided for the entire 3 story house. None in any bathroom or bedroom.
- No soap provided to run the dishwasher
- Main window in the kitchen does not open as the latch is broken so there is no natural light in the dining/kitchen area as the photos show
- Many appliances did not work - hair dryers, television, cable to connect device to speakers to play music.
- coffee maker, toaster etc are not "top notch" as the listing says. They are dated and should be replaced
- the location is not convenient for calling ride share cars such as Uber. They have to travel through the busy tourist area and will often cancel the ride to avoid this.
Thanks for your review, comments are welcome and help us to improve what can be improved.
You have stayed a few times in this apt and wrote very positive reviews. The apt is in the same conditions as for previous and we were surprised to hear these comments.
Maybe somebody in your party is more demanding or more used to stay in 5 stars hotels than renting apts. To us, most of the comments are related to “hotel like” service wishes.
Actually, we can provide extra service on request. Unfortunately you did not contact us during your stay.
Let me detail :
The keysafe location is only 450 meters away from the apt. This system is mainly praised by our guests as it allows them to check in or out whenever they want including in the middle of the night. It also allows to avoid waiting for a late greeter or to miss an appointment because of a delayed flight for example. It was the same system for your previous stay.
Why didn’t you ask us for a second set of keys ? We always provide it when asked for. It could have been very easily solved.
We understand you came for the fashion week and would have liked to get the same service as in a hotel. This is an apt rental and contrarily to hotels, once they get in the apt our guests live as if they were at home. Which means they wash their towels, buy consumables and so on. We obviously provide the basics to helps for arrival but some of our guests stay for weeks or even months and logistic would be impossible to manage except by increasing drastically the price…as in a hotel.
As a side note, all washers in Europe take a longer time for a cycle than in the US as they use less water for ecological reasons. We are used to make them run when leaving for the day.
For the appliances, they work. If you encountered problem to use them, you could have contacted us and we would have sent a technician to repair or change if needed. We are very reactive.
The apt location is beautiful and in one of the quietest and most beautiful part of Montmartre. We do not know for Uber drivers but no regular cab would ever had cancelled the trip. No other guest ever complained about this Uber issue.
It seems that most of the points you noted could have been solved if you had informed us. We are always happy to offer extra service and are organized to. Please ask us next time. If you detail the price per night you paid for such an apt, you will certainly agree that it is hard to beat.
We hope to host you again in Paris.
Hills of Montmartre
Apartment was very nice and large. Beds very comfortable. Not enough towels for everyone however.
3 Families Together for Christmas
Spacious even for 7 people. A quiet location just around the corner from all the action. All of the appliances were in good working order. We shopped at the boulangerie, fromagerie, patisserie, butcher, and produce markets down on Rue des Abesses... and got our cardio-workouts climbing the hill back up to the apartment. Taxis were easily accessible but due to the one-way streets often took longer than walking. The heating system kept us warm as we made the transition from California winter to Paris winter. The three levels made it easy to for all three branches of our family to share the space. Everything in Paris seemed closer than it looked on a map. The Musee de Montmartre across the street offered a look at the history of the area. Most of the restaurants in the area were open on Christmas Day with live music, singing waiters and guests, and good food.
Overall, this property exceeded our expectations. The location was unsurpassable. A matter of STEPS to amazing restaurants, shops, culture, arts. Great space and interior courtyard. Only challenges: without AC, opening windows is critical, but the streets are LOUD (earplugs makes this surmountable). Only one key for a group of 8 staying here created challenges. Toilet paper, paper towels, and other amenities were scarce (maybe bring your own?). Key pick-up/drop-off was pretty complex.... adds an additional layer of stress on arrival and departure. All that being said, I would happily stay there again... just be a little better prepared.
Thanks for your review and glad to know that you found the property to be in an unbelievable location and to exceed your expectations!
One must kow that we nearly do not use AC in Paris, except in hostels and some restaurants.
Sorry for the key, Had you asked, we would have provided a second set with pleasure.
We have mainly very positive feedback on the possibility to pick up the keys at any time in a very nearby area (no need to climb with your luggage). It does avoid waiting times when there is traffic, flight delay or even refusing stays for guests arriving at 1am or leaving on 4am. There are some drawbacks but it mainly presents advantages.
Hope to host you again in Paris!
