Great apartment, love the location!!
We rented this apartment for a week for a business trip, where we wanted to stay a couple extra days for sightseeing and did not want to spend a fortune on a hotel. The location is fabulous -- the neighborhood is full of cute shops and bistros and is very relaxed, clean and safe. It is very convenient to the metro, requiring one transfer to get to the Eiffel Tower, and is about a 15-minute walk to the Louvre, 25 minutes to the center of the 1st district. Paris is a very walking-friendly city, so we enjoyed being able to walk most places. The apartment is a comfortable size, located on a quiet side street, with the living room and bedroom windows overlooking another side street and the kitchen and bathroom windows overlooking a quiet courtyard. I will note that there are cafes below, and without air conditioning, it's nice to keep the windows open, but open windows do let in noise and smoke from below. The windows are well-insulated, so for sleeping, noise wasn't an issue except one evening when people gathered outside as places closed. It is furnished nicely with a comfortable bed and modern amenities and was clean. There was TV (although only news stations in English, not that we watched much TV), and the internet speed was excellent (was able to log into work remotely with no issues). The property manager, Rocco, was friendly and helpful, and was waiting when we arrived to help us carry our bags upstairs. He arranged transportation for us to and from the airport, which was very fairly priced (especially arriving during Monday morning rush hour, and departing very, very early on a Sunday) and arrived on time. Apartment had all of the basics as listed, but was missing some essentials (hand soap in the bathroom, clean sponge for the kitchen), but there are pharmacies nearly every block, so it wasn't an issue. Sliding doors close off the bedroom, and there is a futon in the living room, so a family of four could stay here. Overall, excellent value for the money, and we highly recommend. If we ever visit Paris again, will definitely seek out this apartment again.
