Location Location Location, Charm, and Some Drawbacks
Just returned from a happy stay with my husband in our favorite Paris neighborhood.
PROS: (This apartment is not for everyone. See the cons below.) Location, cleanliness, charming decor and quiet sleep are the best reasons to stay. The bed and bedroom are comfortable, with modern bath - one toilet and big master bath with tall shower. Wifi and free calls to US/Paris a plus. Nice welcome gifts and washer/dryer. Rue de Bretagne is a dream for food lovers and accessible to metro stops and lovely walks.
CONS: If you have joint or mobility problems, know that there are two ancient, uneven, winding, steep staircases to the apartment. They would be ok for most people. I'm very active and not elderly, but I have arthritis and the stairs were difficult/scary for me. Not to mention the awkward task of carrying luggage up to the apartment. Cobblestay told me the stairs were going to be "average." It disappointed me that they gave me false info. The tiny living room has a little dining table, and three unstable chairs. They are too small for comfortable seating, except possibly for three children and there is no hope of dinner for four. The only real seating is a large, well worn couch with no useable side tables. The electronics are piled in a mess on top of a small glass shelf under the TV. Cords are all around the TV - not only is it an eyesore in the middle of an adorable room, it could be dangerous. A cheap cabinet would solve this. Bizarre in an otherwise cute place. Closet space is limited, good for two people but four would be a challenge. I knew the place would be small, that's okay. But they advertise it as an apartment for four - I cannot imagine four grown people sharing this space unless they were just sleeping/showering there.
