Stayed: September 2012
The apartment was extremely well located near Metros 9 & 13, as well as local eateries and the Champs Elysee. A little more care-worn that the photos indicated, but these are my reasons for giving it 4 stars instead of 5:
1) The owner promised a list of local places to eat and (grocery) shop months prior to the trip but never provided it and and didn't respond to my final three e-mails (requesting same) sent in the three weeks leading up to the trip.
2) Only one roll of toilet paper provided for two people to use over a 5 day time period.
3) No hand towels, wash cloths or even soap in the bathroom.
4) Those "American stations" are CNN, MTV and BBC (short documentaries) channels, that's it.
Overall, the apartment was quiet, comfortable and perfectly situated. We found it very easy to use as a jumping off point for our daily explorations and it definitely provided more room and creature comforts (kitchen area) than a hotel would have.
Definitely a good value for the money, but make sure and bring a bar of soap with you.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: First of all thank you for renting from us, we appreciate your business. Our number one gaol has always been our client's satisfaction. Although they are a lot of restaurants and grocery stores around the neighborhood we do also suggest other places off the the beaten path for our Guests and we also have a printed list of those places inside the apartment that our property manager always shares with all our renters. I as the owner travels quiet a bit that's why we have a property manager in place to answer all your questions from the moment your reservation is confirmed. With regards to #2 and #3, our property manager who does the check in and maintenance of our property remains on call during your entire stay and don't hesitate to call if you find that there's something missing in the apartment, he will make sure to bring it to you at once. From the moment you check in our property manager gives each renter his phone number, and there's a landline telephone in the apartment that our guests can use at no charge to contact him for any needs that they might have during their stay. With regards to #4, we have over 115 channels a combination of national TV stations from around the world. You can see the list of all the channels by pressing the guide button on the remote control. Again another for us to respond to your needs during your stay do not hesitate to contact our property manager if you notice that something is missing in the apartment when you first check in or anytime during your stay. Our guests are the reason why our property has been successful and we go to great length to make sure you enjoy your stay with us. Thanks again for your business and we look forward to hosting you again the future.
