3 weeks more comfortable than at home
Submitted: December 14, 2010
Stayed: November 2010
I was there 3 weeks in November and felt really good there, entrance to the block is nice and with a lot of ligth making you feel secure straight away, the area I already knew and that´s why I chose it next to the metro with two lines, lots of restaurants, shops and anything you need and as others said you could almost walk anywhere in Paris thanks to its centrally location, lot of space inside the apartment, it is not a fancy decoration but exactly as in the photos so no surprises there and functional, with a very good distribution, despite being November and very cold outside inside was warm and cosy and you could put the heating on for a couple of hours before bedtime if needed, big work table for studying or working as I needed and telephone to receive international calls and not having to pay on your mobile for receiving them very convenient, communications with Roger were straight forward, and he was very flexible when asked to extend stay, a pleasure to deal with him all times and deal arranged in a very simple way, downsides? kettle but no coffee machine, and no toaster, but it was a very nice touch to have some basics in the kitchen for food instead of having to buy all essentials, also a big umbrella that came very handy with all the rain that there was during the whole month and a hair dryer. And lots of Paris guides and books on walks were great. Would I stay there again? Definetely. Would I recommend it to anybody? If you want the feel of a home , lots of books, some food, and owners personal items giving a sense of staying in a friends house with plenty of space to move around and to store with a right distribution with windows, and views to the street with hardly any noise with double glazing, and in a great location this is the place for you, if you care too much about the place looking brand new with very trendy decoration and the feel of being in a hotel with nothing personal around, then may be it is not.
Tourists without a Car,
Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed the stay. We often thought about having a coffee machine, but then, some prefer filtered, other capsules etc. etc. We are surrounded by great cafés that serve excellent coffee as we are in the heart of Paris. Nothing we could provide would ever be better than what's on offer next door. We look forward to your next visit and thanks for the very kind review
