Quaint and classic Paris charm but Loud
This place exuded classic Paris charm and beautiful tall windows (tricky to operate with the sheer curtains) and architectural details like crazy. Along with that beauty also comes odd room layouts and the afterthought of the separate shower and sink in the second bedroom. The air conditioning didn’t work and the two bedrooms each had 1 single room fan (no ceiling fans or other air flow). Most people were walking around in the morning or late at night with light jackets on but we wanted to sleep with the windows open and due to the bus stop down below and busy neighborhood, we constantly had loud people, music and smoke filtering up making that unrealistic for sleeping. The kitchen was so small we were not interested in cooking and the single toilet was a bit much for 4 people. When we first arrived there were no bags in the garbage cans and 2 rolls of toilet paper. I replied to an email from the owner asking about the stay so far, brought up these two and they immediately had them dropped off. The floor is so cool but it creaks and has soft spots. The door latches were all loud and there was no way to creep out quietly without waking everyone up. The rooms weren’t arranged as pictured- there was different furniture. You will need to bring your own hygiene products and soap (even for the bath sink). There IS a hair dryer and the washer and dryer were easy to use and worked well. The doors and hall lights to get in and out of the building took some getting used to as there was no explanation on where or how to open them or turn on a light. There were several grocery stores nearby as well as the unique promenade or arcade across the street. No shortage of restaurants nearby. Public transit was easy enough but we walked a lot.
Of course Paris is a lively city and the neighborhood has many special restaurants and cafes always full of travelers from all over the world .
The AC is working fine and the fans in the bedrooms are nicely cooling together with the very high ceilings . Our lovely English speaking manager can always jump in to help explain and arrange things .This summer has been the highest temperature ever seen in Paris .
The kitchen is fully equipped for cooking and the arm chairs have been replaced by another sofa and curtains needed replacement.
Nice spacious apartment in a lively neighborhood
We stayed for 8 nights in hot weather with another couple . The high ceilings and large rooms (for Paris) were perfect for us. AC and fans worked well, kitchen has all the basics. WiFi was a little slow, but worked. Very busy and noisy street with lots of restaurants, stores and cafes and lots more in the area. New windows in the street side bedroom did a good job of reducing the noise. One tip:
Coffee carafe doesn't quit fit the machine - set carafe at an angle, not flat, to keep the drip valve open.
The neighborhood is full of tourist attractions many travelers love to visit the restaurants ,bakeries ,cafes ,ice cream makers and shops .
The coffee machine has been replaced by a new one ,thanks for the kind tip.
Hope having you again soon as our guests
Great communication, good access to transit. Lots of restaurants and grocery store nearby. 20 min walk to the Louvre. Felt safe in the neighbourhood and actually everywhere we went in Paris. As others have noted street noisy as bus stop just outside bedroom/living room windows. When windows were closed not an issue. Was 42 degrees celcius when we visited had to have window open to use portable AC on. 9 foot window with 8 inch hose...leaves room for noise and heat. Used curtains to enclose 'gap'. Apartment does not have central air. Was able to cool enough by closing door between livingroom and bedrooms to keep cool
air confined to sleeping area. Clothes dryer does not appear to be vented. Was a sauna when using heat cycle. Learned to run clothes dryer with air only for a couple cycles and then hang dry. Washing machine worked well but I had to hand clean mildew from rubber seal, had to run machine a couple times to reduce mildew order...as well as shower curtain. For the money I expected near spotless with respect to the mildew. Beds were comfortable. Lots of room for a family of 4. Appartment very secure. Key fob to access foyer from street and again to enter staircase area. Small two person or 1 person/luggage elevator available but prefered to use spiral staircase to our first floor apartment. Recommended owner give more attention to details regarding washing machine and shower curtain - could easily launder or replace.
So glad that you enjoyed your stay even with the heat wave of 42 Celcius degrees never seen in Paris !!
The washing machine and curtain are fine now .
The apartment is really in the heart of Paris ,every moment is a gift being there .
Hope having you soon again as our guests .
The apartment was just as listed and very clean. The only problem was the bedroom on the street side got a lot of street noise.
The heart of Paris is always an attraction for visitors and travelers .
The bedroom on the court yard is completely silent .
You can bring ear plugs for light sleepers on the street side.
It is a wonderful
neighborhood with so many bakeries ,cafes and restaurants near to many tourist attractions like the Opera , Louvre museum and Montmartre .Just to enjoy a lovely stay in Paris.
A great week in July.
The apartment was great for the four of us. It had everything we needed and it was in a good location. Emmanuelle was very nice and helpful. The air conditioning units were a plus, although they were noisy...and sleeping in the front room was challenging because of the street noise...ear plugs were needed. I would recommend the apartment though....just be prepared for some noise.
Fantastic, just what we wanted
Booked over a year ago, great communications from property owner. Perfect location, and 5 min access to subways and easy 20 min walks to the Seine, Latin Quarter etc. Very hot outside, owner provided AC and fans, greatly appreciated.
Great , very kind guests , we are awaiting your next stay .
In the centre of Paris ,you can go on foot to The Opera ,The Louvre, The Musee of Grevin, the biggest sales shops and Art Galerys (in front of the house).
Also near the Stock Exchange and Publique Sales of Drouot. Many restaurants and theatres very close to the apartment and of course near bus- and underground stops. The Express Railway to Disneyland is also not far .
