GRAND LOUVRE APARTMENT

1st Arrondissement Louvre Apartment Rental Photos and Description

4 rooms, 3 bathrooms, grand balcony, monumental windows, a Royal Apartment

Dated from the 17st century, was a side part of the Louvre where several members of the Royal Family were hosted in. Thanks to the 3.5m high ceilings, the thick walls, floors and parquets, the apartment is very quiet (the walls are 1m thick in some places). It was transformed and totally renewed in 2011.

The equipment of the building as the elevator, the TV, water and electricity circuits are new. The First 2 floors are the new headquarters of Louis Vuitton, the very top of the French luxury. In the building there is an underground parking (garage with Valet). There is an AC system but the AC and parking are not included.

The very best point is that it is located in the most central area of historical Paris, no need to use the metro (loose of time) everything is accessible simply walking or biking.

This apartment is our primary inhabitation in Paris. But it is a big apartment and even when we are here (but not all the family) we can rent from time to time a part of it which can then become totally independent from the rest.

This apartment is our primary inhabitation in Paris. It has 4 rooms 3 lofts 3 bathrooms 8 doublebeds including sofabeds. But it is a big apartment and even when we are here (but not all the family) we can rent from time to time a part of it which can then become totally independent from the rest. It is a fabulous location, just in face of the Louvre (N/E corner), probably the best location to visit Paris (most of monuments are at a walkable distance) the building from 17th century is a monument and the apartment with its 3,6m high ceilings , monumental windows, noble parquets original paintings and mirrors … is a Royal apartment and the King Louis the XIV did stay some time here. The place is really unique and for the rare periods we accept to rent it we choose carefully the guest who will stay here. So sorry if ask questions about who you are.

WHAT A DUMP!

  • 1 of 5
Great location but….This place was dirty. The furniture was old and a virtually worn out collection of reject furniture. The beds were broken and all were fold out beds, except for those in the lofts. Unfortunately one of the lofts had a totally soaked mattress as the ceiling above leaked. The loft in one room was barely accessible. One of the fold out beds was held up by 2 safes as the legs were missing. This bed was in the main living area for the apartment. The bed linen, doonas, pillows, towels were in absolute disgusting condition. All problems were reported to the manager. Would we stay there again or recommend it to a friend? Never!

Owner's Response: This comment is hard but as 2 or 3 guests did complain we dicided to change the older components of the furniture and organisation and we think it is much better now :
3 beds were changed and 3 others will be changed in April , older linens was eliminanted and we have a new cleaning team. We hope that now everyting will be much better. As this guest did remarque The apartment is in one of best locations in Paris and one of best buildings.

DISAPPOINTED

  • 2 of 5
Location is the only thing going for these apartments. We found the place dirty, stained bed linens, broken beds, paint chips falling from ceiling onto bed. Kitchen cabinets broken. Dog feces on the floor in elevator and lobby. Only two keys given for group of 11! Disappointing to say the least!

Owner's Response: This group who did rent our apartment over the new year, did not inform us about any problems with the apartment during the stay so we were sure that everything was OK. The apartment was prepared by a backup team as the usual team was 1 week on vacations. The usual team did come back from vacations, just after the new year and did find 2 -3 anomalies : one broken wooden spring in one of 8 beds, 1 kitchen cabinet door did not close totally , 2 stained flat sheets (very small stains). The apartment can be accessed with keys but also with code so normally more than 2 keys is not necessary. Most of anomalies were repaired in 30minutes. Probably the temporary maintenance team did not prepare the apartment perfectly but one call or short email from the guest and we would fix most of problems. So please: our welcome agents stays with you 30min during the check-in: check if the apartment is clean, if you have the linens and towels you need, do not forget to ask the keys and codes , passwords for Internet. But it is impossible to see everything during the check-in so inform us ASAP about any problems you see we will do our best to solve it very quickly.
I think that this group was angry against us they found only the location satisfactory , but this apartment (we call Louvre1+2) is exactly as on the pictures and most of guests find it beautiful as well as the building maintained by the Louis Vuitton team, Unfortunately happy guests rarely send reviews.

GREAT LOCATION - THINK BEDROOM, NOT APARTMENT

  • 3 of 5
The apartment is small. It is simply two bedrooms each with a loft and a connecting bathroom. The kitchen is in one of the bedrooms. It does sleep 8 in four double beds. The bed were unmade (sheets sitting on bed). An extra set of sheets were in mildewing in the dryer. The towels were old. It was a hassle to rent.

The positive attributes are location, building security (4 electronic locks before entering apartment) and price (reflecting the size and quality). I also liked the check in agent.

With my lowered expectations, I would rent the apartment again for one family of four (2 adults and 2 teenagers), not two families.

Owner's Response: This guest did not rent the apartment # 419884 in total but a smaller part of it with only 4 double beds 2 rooms 2 lofts for 8 guests ( the maximum capacity)
Our Automatic answering system did propose them a small rate to rent it and did precise the configuration. So I believe we were fair and the guest did confirm it. We should probably insist more that they would be a bit squeezed.
The conclusion is that If you choose this solution ( the cheapest one) you will have to accept to be a bit squeezed especially when you choose to use the maximum capacity . With 4 or 6 guests they would be much more comfortable. For 8 to 12 you should request the #419884 in total , with 7 double-beds 3 bathrooms 4 rooms 3 lofts or even more space ( 2 or 4 more rooms) if your group is bigger. We normally do not let you rent our apartment when we are not sure that you fully understand what you rent but some misunderstandings can happen.
For the towels we have a big stock of it So on check-in please check if you want to change something with our welcome agent.

WONDERFUL, HISTORIC LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from Paris yesterday. I am a teacher and I led a group of 17 high school students and two adults to France for a two week educational seminar. We spent the second week in Paris. I first contacted Vincent and Lucas some time ago when I began planning. They were great to work with from the very first contact. They were quick to respond to my questions and were very understanding and helpful through the entire process. We booked all five apartments to lodge our group of 20. There was plenty of space for everyone. It was just what I was looking for. I cannot say enough about the location...perfect. Vincent provided us with a warm and informative welcome. The history of the building and area are reasons enough to stay there. He was also very helpful with familiarizing us with the area. He checked in during our stay and we knew we could contact him if we needed anything. However, you do not go to Paris to sit in an apartment. So, other than sleeping and getting ready in the morning we did not spend much time there. They were great for everything we needed. Having lived in Paris and the Paris area for over a year, I want to add that renting the apartments was a much more authentic experience than staying in a hotel. I wanted the group to have as Parisian an experience as possible. The local shopping and dining were also fantastic. We were regulars at the boulangeries around the corner. Vincent was great about helping us get dinner reservations for a group our size on short notice when we first arrived. Overall, I would definitely recommend these rentals for a memorable, authentic experience in an ideal location. Thanks Vincent and Lucas!

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION!

We were very happy with our stay at the Grand Louvre Apartments. We were a family of 10, aged 7 years to 75 years. The apartment had plenty of space and beds for all of us. The children loved to sleep in the loft areas, there was peeling paint coming off the ceiling but was VERY clean. Please keep in mind that this is a very old building. The location was absolutely perfect, across from the Louvre. The apartment representative and the staff at the cafe were very helpful and friendly and it made us feel very welcome in Paris. I had no problem with reservations and paying for the apartment through PayPal.

Plenty of restaurants, bars, food shops and fashion shops nearby. 50m to the Louvre Rivoli Metro Station. 300m to the main metro/train station of Paris with direct access to main airports, train stations and attractions like EuroDisney Versailles ...

To summarize: the best location in Paris a tourist can dream.
