Guestbook comments from the manager
I have to say Apt. 1 has been great. It has everything a weary traveler needs. Also, it is close to the Metro and bus, even the Louvre and M d'Orsay for late summer evening visits. I walked out to the nearest pedestrian bridge the other night and enjoyed an African dance performance (along with a few hundred pique-nique'ers. :)We will be sad to leave, and have truly appreciated the hominess of Apt. 1.

The apt at 10 rue JJ Rousseau, 1st floor, is charming, well-appointed, and perfectly located to visit all you'd ever want to see in and out of Paris ... without needing a car. Even though the apartment is on a small quiet street, it is in the middle of wonderful restaurants, shops and only two blocks from the Louvre. The owner provides current and accurate suggestions / recommendations of restaurants and pastry shops within the immediate area, and the bookshelf contains more guides to Paris than I thought existed. We would definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it to friends.

CLEAN, TIDY, AFFORDABLE, CLOSE TO THE SEINE

  • 4 of 5
I stayed in this apartment with my mom for a week- I think some of the furnishings have been updated from the picture. It gave us plenty of room- she slept in the bed and I slept on the pullout. The WIFI worked (very important). The apartment was just as described. It was very clean and the location was awesome. We walked everywhere and hopped on the Metro when necessary, but often we did not have to catch the Metro. I was very thankful for the gobs of information Nancy provides about transportation, nearby restaurants, grocery stores, too. There are many great places to eat within steps of the apartment. Fortunately, the waiters spoke quite a bit of English which made things a bit easier.

Glad we chose an apartment over a hotel- way more room. I was referred to Nancy through a friend that had already stayed in another apartment in the same building. I was struggling to decide on a place to stay, but since my friend said it was OK, we went for it. Having room to spread out a little is nice since we kept staying up half the night reading (since we were so jetlagged).

I especially enjoyed opening up the large windows and just listening to the sounds of the street, the chatter of the people at the tapas bar across the street, and this does include an interesting street cleaning and trash truck appearance fairly early each morning. I would stay here again.

CHARMING PARISIAN APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed the apartment. It was nicely appointed and supplied as they say and the location was the best. We walked everywhere. The first night we just roamed around the grounds of the Louvre and then walked over onto one of the bridges across the Seine and all of a sudden we see the Eiffel tower all aglow. It was like magic. One day we even walked all the way to the tower and back, down the west bank in the daylight and up the east bank a night, looking back many times. What a beautiful walk. So much great architecture. We went to Christmas Eve service at Notre Dame. I could go on and on. We hope to stay there again over the years and really get to know the beautiful city of Paris. Thanks for helping give us a trip of a lifetime.

LIVE LIKE A LOCAL

  • 5 of 5
We spent a wonderful week in Paris at this apartment. It was well located on a quiet street two blocks from the Louvre. We took the train from CDG. It was very easy and the stop was 3 blocks to the apt. It was as shown in the photos, very clean and well stocked. It was comfortable for the two of us. It would be fine with a kid or two, not a good choice for two couples as the bathroom is connected to the bedroom. There was plenty of hot water and water pressure. Nancy was a pleasure to deal with, very prompt with her responses. Fernando, the greeter, was there as scheduled and very helpful. The apartment was quiet, with the bedroom located at the back. There is a laundromat across the stree which was faster than using the unit in the apt. It was within a 15 minute walk to the musee d'orsay and many attractions. We bought a 6 day museum pass which I highly recommend. We had excellent meals at L'Emile two doors down and Le Regalade around the corner. There are many restaurants, patisseries, and cafes within easy walking distance. I would stay there again.

Our stay at 10, rue Jean Jacques Rousseau in Paris was delightful in part due to to the superb location which made walking to Musee du Louvre, Notre Dame, and other central sites easy. Access to the metro, buses and trains was similarly convenient.

The apartment was well equipped, clean and secure. The owners provided a very helpful packet of information useful in locating restaurants, groceries, etc . in the neighborhood. We were met by a local caretaker who reviewed the features of the apartment and the security routine.
We would choose this apartment for future visits to Paris. It provided very good value and made our Paris visit memorable.

CHARMING AND PERFECTLY LOCATED

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this apartment for a week to celebrate our 30th anniversary. First off, even being bleary from our overnight flight and early arrival, getting to the apartment from the airport by train and then foot couldn't have been easier. And since the apartment was free the day before, we were kindly allowed to check in early. The apartment is so centrally located and convenient by foot to just about all the sights as well as being very close to the metro, bakery, grocery, etc. With the help of a 5 day museum pass, my husband was able to visit the Louvre 3 times (less than 10 min walk) and the d'Orsay (15 min walk) 2 times, just popping in to see a few rooms instead of being so overwhelmed. The apartment living room is charming with its wood floors and high ceilings with wood beams. The heaters were very efficient when needed. The kitchen is well equipped (although I would recommend not to use the washer). The bathroom is nicely done also with good hot water and pressure. Everything was very clean and every need thought of. Open a drawer and you will find something useful. Coming back to such a charming building with its worn wooden staircase was a pleasure. In the morning, run down the stairs, turn left, and you can buy your fresh croissant and run back up. I could see that the tapas bar across the street might be a little noisy at times, but during the day or at night with the windows closed, no problem. And since it is down a little side street, there is virtually no traffic noise. Nancy was super responsive and easy to work with, as was Fernando. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. Loved it.
