My husband and I, along with our adult children, son-in-law, and son's girlfriend spent 5 nights in this apartment in June 2013. The apartment was very comfortable, with the exception of the saggy sofa. The apartment is very well maintained, with updated fixtures in all 3 bathrooms. The building is quiet and very safe. It was a short walk to the Opera Metro as well as the Quatre Septembre Metro.
We had excellent communication with the management prior to arrival. We were able to check in at 9:30 AM, which was a big help for our flight in from the states. The representative, Kenny, who showed us the apartment, made sure we understood how everything worked, and was very clear on what was expected of us at check out.
At first we were given three sets of keys, which was very helpful since the 3 couples did not always tour together. On day two we were required to give one set of keys back. This required a bit more scheduling to make sure the couple without a key was able to get in the building. There is a code for the front door, but you need the key fob to open the second gated area.
There is a tiny elevator that stops one floor short of the apartment. It is an easy climb up to the top floor. Americans should remember that the French start counting on Floor Zero, so the apartment is actually 7 stories up.
The two bedrooms with double beds, have private bathrooms. The one bedroom with two singles has a small bedroom directly across the hall. We only had one bar of soap for the 3 bathrooms, and had to buy some extra at the grocery store. The kitchen is nicely stocked. We enjoyed the dishwasher and washing machine. There is a large refrigerator and freezer as well.
I highly recommend this apartment, especially for any group needing 3 bathrooms.
