YELLOW FLAT. BRIGHT. SECURE. AC. ELEVATOR. SLEEPS UP TO 4.

7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom 1 Bath Apartment. Queen Bed. Convertible Sofa Bed. Sleeps 2-4.

The Yellow Flat is a well designed, tastefully decorated and completely renovated apartment. It is a comfortable, bright and secure home away from home for your next trip to Paris.

The Yellow Flat is located at the top of the Champ De Mars, the large park that runs perpendicular to the Eiffel Tower in a building that abuts Avenue De Suffren. This is a perfect location from which to easily explore the city, close to all forms of transit and the Eiffel Tower.

The Yellow Flat is located on the sixth floor of our building with a modern elevator that was installed in 2010 and pass code protected. Both the bedroom and living rooms feature floor to ceiling windows, keeping the flat cheery and sunny. You look at the beautiful Parisian skyline and there is no one above you to disturb your stay.

Do you love to cook? We hope that you will enjoy our brand new kitchen, renovated in 2012 as much as we have. It features an induction stove top and full sized oven and refrigerator. It is stocked with all the utensils that you need to make a meal.

Be sure to have a glass of wine or breakfast on our balcony at you look out at the Parisian skyline.

And while the neighborhood is very lively during the day, our street is quiet so you sleep well at night.

This is a wonderful Parisian neighborhood full of unique shops, gourmet food stores, sidewalk cafes, authentic not touristy restaurants and people.

It is an excellent location, close to two high quality pedestrian friendly shopping streets Rue Cler and Rue du Commerce. There is easy access to transit via the metro from La Motte Piquet Grenelle only two blocks away (which has three separate metro lines), busses and taxi stands that reach the rest of the city with ease.

The apartment has a separate bedroom, a living room, bathroom and kitchen, about 400 square feet in size with plenty of storage. There is an outdoor terrace with table and chairs.

It is fully stocked with all of the amenities we want when we stay at the flat as it is our home in Paris when we travel.

We have a bi-lingual manager in Paris who will greet you on arrival and is ready to help you with your questions and concerns.

Should you wish we will arrange for Patrick, a reliable driver to pick you up and take you back to the airport and even stock your fridge with gourmet goodies. Let us know if you are interested in either of these options.

We refer to our apartment in Paris as the Yellow Flat and when you look at our pictures you see why. Your can also learn more about the flat and the neighborhood by visiting our new website, see the link below.

Features include:

WiFi with broadband.

Flat screen television with cable and international channels.

DVD player.

A good sounding stereo with MP3 input. Bring your Ipod.

Full size sleeper couch that you can comfortably sleep on.

Induction cooking element and full sized oven.

Renovated stylish kitchen with everything you need to cook.

Spacious shower with lots of hot water and plenty of pressure.

Extensive library of travel guidebooks. Don't bother to bring one.

Another great feature of this apartment is the surrounding neighborhood and all of the restaurants that we love. They are friendly, unpretentious and quality is excellent. There are lots of reviews for you to enjoy on our blog, also linked below.

There is always something to do including an open air market twice week and grocery shopping is easy and close.

The Quai Branley museum is 10 minutes away and Musee D'Orsay and Les Invalides 15 to 20.

Here is a comment from recent guests (and we encourage you to click through and read more;

'We are just home last night from our wonderful week in Paris. Your apartment is wonderful and was perfect for us. We can't say enough how much we enjoyed your place. We loved the instruction book with the pictures, the decor, the washer/dryer, the location, and the personal touches. The kitchen was well supplied and easy to work in. The nice bathroom and shower were also a plus. And, we couldn't believe how quiet the neighborhood was!! We will definitely be back and we also will recommend your place to friends and family Our experience was outstanding. Thank you so much.'

We love this apartment and know that you will enjoy it just as we do when in Paris.

Enjoy Paris and the Yellow Flat. Jules and Florence

Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Jules,



Just a quick note to thank you. We had a great time in Paris. The apartment was centrally located and we can walk to the Eiffel Tower! The place had just what we needed, including a balcony that was utilized almost every morning/evening when we are in. The restaurant list was very useful. We love Mansouri----and it's only two metro stops from the apartment.



I just want to mention "Fat Tire" Bike Tour in Versailles. Their headquarter in Paris is a 5 minutes walk from the apartment and they do a great bike tour. Everyone there speaks English and the tour is done in English. The tour takes you riding in the streets of Paris from their headquarter to the RER station. You then board your train to Versailles' open market to get stables for your picnic before riding the grounds. We had a great time and thought your guests might like it, too.



It was nice to work with you. Everything was so easy and I love the fact that you replied very quickly to any questions or concerns that we had. Thiery was great and very personable. Thank you, Rosine

Many years ago a young French woman had a dream about coming to America that wouldn't leave her mind. Little did she realize that she would settle in the San Francisco Bay Area. Years later she and her husband Jules realized their dream when they purchased their 'pied a tere' in Paris, the Yellow Flat.

The Yellow Flat is our base when our family is fortunate enough stay in Paris and we are truly glad that our guests have felt the same. It is our home away from home and we take good care of it. We are sure you will agree that it is a special place.

Jules Kragen purchased this apartment in 2005

We love the access to the green open spaces of the large park, the Champ De Mars and the Seine. We love to walk in Paris and this is an ideal location. What a luxury to have Eiffel Tower and the Champ De Mars park in your evening stroll, whether in the afternoon or at midnight.

Easy transportation. You can get anywhere in Paris, or out, by metro, bus, RER or train from our flat. There are three metro lines at the closest metro station.

The busy day time atmosphere, the quite evenings and the view from the balcony.

Breakfast on the terrace.

Reading on the couch.

Gourmet shopping on Rue Lourmel and baked goods at Poilaine.

Exploring the neighborhood, finding new stores and interesting sights.

New restaurants all the time.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the Yellow Flat with our 11-year old daughter for a week in October. The apartment was just as billed -- perfectly appointed and maintained, very convenient in terms of Metro access, and located in a lovely, safe neighborhood of Paris. The owner and property manager both were responsive and incredibly helpful before and during our trip. We would recommend this apartment to all and hope to return quickly!

It was Okay

  • 4 of 5
Location can't be beat, near the metro and walkable to Effiel and Champs de Mars. Size wise it's only enough for one couple or one with very small child. Cons- we had to constantly email and call for someone to meet us at the apartment, communication could be improved upon. The toilet is tiny and no ventilation. There were absolutely no cleaning products to clean the toilets or any kitchen surfaces? Quality of linens was low.

Owner's Response: Hello Shiksha,

Thank you for taking the time to review our Yellow Flat.
We appreciate your comments and ask you and other travelers to appreciate the following notes.

Our listing provides you with the size of our apartment. It is 36 square meters not including the balcony, another 11 square meters. 36 square meters is about 386 square feet. We recommend our yellow flat for couples or families traveling with one or two children. We have set up the living room with a comfortable sofa bed and storage and supply linens for up to 4 persons. While this is not a large apartment by US standards, it is an ample size in Paris. We have enjoyed many successful bookings of 4 persons.

Yes, the toilet is located in a tiny room and ventilation could be better. As you know, the toilet is in a room that is separate from the master bath and bedroom. We do our best to keep air freshener in the toilet room. Ventilation is an issue that we have raised with the building coop and will continue to do so but it is out of our control.

I have passed your comment about cleaning supplies on to our manager and we will do our best to keep them available to our guests.

We send all linens out to be professionally laundered for each rental. While this provides us with a clean and reliable result, it does wear the linens out over time. I will speak with our manager about replacing ones that have become worn.

In looking over the email exchanges between myself, our manager you and your husband, I agree that it did take too many emails to confirm airport pick up and car service and we need to improve that. I hope that the remainder of our communication including a detailed itinerary in the neighborhood and referrals to blog posts to guide you and your kids to a great time in Paris made up for that.

Kind regards,

Jules

Birthday surprise for our kids!

  • 5 of 5
We want everyone to know that this place is PERFECT for a family of 4! Everything that Jules said about the place and location was right on the money! We were in the heart of it all! Not to mention that when we had a question about his place...he responded right away. I do recommend using Patrick to drive you to the yellow flat. We landed at 8am after traveling all night and were exhausted. To see a friendly face that greeted us and steered us in the right direction was worth its weight in gold! Definitely worth the money. ( Only around 15 Euros more than a taxi)
The metra is a 5 minute walk and within a few hours we had it figured out down flat. Restaurants, grocery store was right around the corner and to have a fully stocked kitchen was priceless. We grabbed a few things from grocery store and when we came home from a long day it was great just to be able to have a snack, make a sandwich etc...
Also having wifi, the washer/dryer combo, and free long distance to a land line was just what we needed.
I would recommend the yellow to ANY couple or family of 4...if you have a larger group Jules has another property and with his professionalism I would trust him completely to steer you in the right direction! And just a side note...we did the Flat Tire bike tour which was one of our highlights! It is a company that is based out of Texas-a lot of english speaking employees, who went out of our way to make sure that our tour was everything we wanted. Would recommend that tour. Also helped that the time we were out there our temp averaged 65-68 degree fahrenheit with not a cloud in the sky! :)
Loved our trip, loved the place!

A week in Paris

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I successfully bid on a week in Paris in a charity fund-raiser, and stayed in the Yellow Flat during the last week of February. I have been to Paris several times, but never before spent a lot of time in the 7th Arrondissement. We were delighted by the availability of a variety of excellent restaurants, and the convenience of local shopping. Despite threatening weather forecasts, it hardly rained at all, and we were able to get out and explore the neighborhood on foot extensively. The location of the flat is excellent; the Eiffel Tower is a few blocks away, and more importantly, there is an excellent boulangerie/patisserie on the corner, half a block from the front door of the building.

The flat itself is bright and clean. We were met by an English-speaking woman who showed us how everything worked, and even gave us some tips on sightseeing. There also were instruction books in the flat for almost all the appliances. The in-house Wi-Fi worked perfectly. The flat is stocked with travel guides and bus and metro maps, and is convenient to all kinds of public transportation. My only gripe would be that the toilet is not in the same room as the sink and shower, but that is a minor inconvenience. I walk with two canes, but the flat is across the hall from the elevator, and had no problems regarding my limited mobility.

I would be happy to stay in the Yellow Flat on my next trip to Paris, which I hope will be soon.

SIMPLY THE BEST

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I arrived at Orley Airport at 8:30 pm where our driver, Patrick, met us at baggage and took us to the Yellow Flat. Therry was waiting for us there and introduced us to the area. We recommend using Patrick for entry and departure, because it lets you have zero stress or responsibility.
This apartment is in an unbelievable location. Close to the attractions, but in a local residential neighborhood. We did not have or need a car. We walked to the Velib bike rental station one block from the flat each day and rode to our destination in Paris. In the evening, we would have hors d'oeuvres on the balcony, then walk one block to Motte Pickquett where we started at one end of the street Friday, and ate each night at every bistro on the street. When we reached the end of the street (only one block long) we started all over again at the beginning. Being able to walk to dinner and walk home each night was priceless. I could go on and on. This was our first trip to Paris and the next time we won't stay anywhere else. I can see the owner, Jules, nodding his approval as he reads this, because this is exactly what he does when he is there.

Living the dream

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I stayed at the flat for a wonderful week in April this year and we loved it. Firstly it was all that it promised to be - a rarity in itself in this day and age.
It was great having someone meet us and show us around when we arrived wide eyed and starstruck. It was lovely before that to have support from Jules and Thierry when I sent what felt like an endless stream of questions about how to manage.
The size was perfect for two people who needed a base for their first trip to Paris - even us with our plethora of luggage! We enjoyed breakfast from one of the many local boulangeries and on one occasion dinner at the table. Most of the time we went out for meals and often in walking distance. We loved the Cafe Suffren which was five minutes away and which became our "local".
We loved walking to the Tour and to Rue Cler for the consummate Paris street market experience.
All in all, we just loved it and we'd strongly recommend it to anyone looking for the chance to live like a local
