Overview

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

About Jules Kragen

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

Why Jules Kragen chose 7th Arrondissement Eiffel Tower

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.

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

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!

Lovely Flat, Terrific Customer Support

  • 5 of 5
The Yellow Flat is perfect: size (separate toilet room with sink, from shower room with sink made getting ready in the morning fast and easier), big windows, furnishings (lots of closets, good bed, comfortable couch, space to dine), exceptional kitchen (really!), and location (close to Motte Picquet metro, antique shops, UNESCO, terrific bakery, butcher and grocery store). But the excellent, helpful assistance of the local person (Kate) who met us at the Yellow Flat was really so terrific. When we got out of the car we realized that my husband had left his laptop 'somewhere' at the airport! It contained all his medications, including one that needed to be refrigerated. Kate stayed with us, made numerous calls, got us online and by near miracle the bag was located at CDG Lost and Found (with the laptop and all meds!). Kate and her boss Thierry arranged for a driver to bring the case to us - before the expiry of the medication. Astonishing level of cooperation!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5
My stay in Paris was perfect. The apartment was ideal for what I needed - a home away from home while touring Paris. The welcoming high-altitude city is perfect for finding great food and relaxation.

Wonderful Stay at a Great Location

  • 4 of 5
My wife and I stayed @ the Yellow Flat for 10 days and found it just wonderful as a launching placed for an extended Paris visit. The flat itself is very adequate for 2 travelers with updated kitchen and bath. We had more than enough room and amenities to make our trip delightful. There are many great locations to stay in Paris and we found ourselves asking -- Maybe we should have stayed here or there. But here are the major points for this flat location vs. others: 1) 10 minute walk max to Eiffel Tower 2) 5 minute walk to one of the very few Starbucks 3) 5 minute walk to a 3-line metro station (6-8-10) that can get you to most everywhere 4) 5 minute walk to probably the largest outside markets in Paris held every Sunday and Wednesday 5) 5 minute walk to a large grocery store 6) and steps away from a bakery and many nice brasseries.

All in all a very good experience

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!
