The owner, Patricia, was prompt in her responses providing us with everything we required including arranging for the housekeeper, Maria, to come. Payment for the apartment was very easy because she has an account in the United States. The apartment was even better than the description and the photos. One fantastic feature was the measure of security in the building; a doorman and three different secured doors to pass through. The location was fantastic; very close to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine and a Statue of Liberty, but far away from these attractions to not be touristy. The neighborhood is quiet. Bus stops and metro stops are nearby. Along with restaurants, stores and shops. There is a spectacular restaurant a few blocks named the Volant Basque. And also a Starbucks for those addicted to American coffee. We highly recommend the city wide bike system known as Velib, which has a station at the end of the block. We highly recommend this apartment and look forward to our next visit.
