***** 5/5



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sam's place in the heart of Paris with 3 small children aged, 6, 3 and 5 months old. We stayed there for 6 nights and was sad to leave without seeing any snow. Sam's description of the place was very accurate and the location was the best. We walked to the Louvre almost every day and was able to get on a hop on/hop off bus from Hard Rock Cafe just across the street. Sam's place was clean enough but we had to move some furniture around the studio to make enough space for all 5 of us. Even tho the studio was small it was cozy enough and we enjoyed our stay. Also on our last day Sam allowed us to check out late due to our late flight and having a baby. She accommodated every needs we had and was even willing to make an appointment with her doctor when i became ill for a day! When/if we go back to Paris, we'll definitely stay at Sam's place again. Thanks Sam, for such a wonderful experience in Paris!

Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
The location of the apartment is great! Step outside, go left and you are right on a busy street with cafe's, the metro, the hop-on-hop-off bus, etc… It's walking distance (not 5 minutes like others have stated-more like 15-20 and we are fast walkers) to historic museums, and "must see" other places.

Unfortunately, we were very disappointed as to the condition of the apartment. It really only sleeps 2 adults comfortably. This is similar in size to a studio apartment in the US. There is only 1 king sized bed in the room, with a small (love seat size) sofa and chair that are both very old, worn, and uncomfortable all crammed in the same room. The kitchen is small, sparsely stocked with the very basic dishes. There were 4 of us adults, so 2 of us slept on fold-out foam pads on the floor. We had to rearrange the room just to get space on the floor to put the foam pads. The bathroom shower is like camp showering, and the pipes in the bathroom look like they are leaking. And be very careful with the elevator (lift). It only holds 2 people (squeeze in), and we got stuck a few times. And the staircase (apartment is on the 6th floor) is very dark at night.

We survived, but I didn't really expect to go to Paris for the first time and sleep on the floor and feel like I was in something like what I would find in a hostel. I wanted a warm Parisian apartment feel instead of a hotel. Next time, I'll get a hotel.

Samantha (the owner) is very, very nice and there is a lot of helpful information of where to eat, what to see, how to get around, etc. in the books that other visitors have left. Maybe it's just that we had our expectations set too high. We had a great time in Paris, but we didn't spend much time in the apartment due to the fact that it just wasn't comfortable. We had hoped to be able to grab some good wine, cheese, and bread and sit together in the apartment after a long day, but there really isn't any room to be able to do that and absolutely no ambiance.

Can only recommend this for 2 adults that are just using the apartment for the great location and to crash at night to sleep. Sorry...

Magical Paris

  • 5 of 5
We found this to be a lovely, clean apartment located and advertised as shown on the website. Sam was quick to answer E-Mails and had someone to greet us at the apartment when we arrived by train from London.There was a small mixup in our arrival time, but our greeter was there in a few minutes. She talked to us on the phone before we left the USA and that was very comforting. The apartment had everything that was stated and more, loved the pink toilet paper!. The free phone call to the USA was special and needed as there was a problem back home that we were able to deal with, thank you Samantha! The transportation system was steps away that took us all over the city to see the sights. Do you map planning before you come to Paris, so all you have to do is jump on the metro and in minutes you are at the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel tower and other sights! Nice big bed and great smelling lavender liquid soap in the bathroom she supplied and that I was able to buy some for me at the Monoprix store around the corner! (brought some back to the USA). Paris is expensive but less than London, but there are many places to eat at a reasonable price. Hard Rock cafe is down the street, but I came to eat French cooking! The best buttery croissants ever! Thank you Samantha, hope to return to your apartment and experience more of Paris!

We took our two teen-aged kids to London and Paris for Christmas break. Our stay at the flat in Paris was magical. Everything was better than expected. The flat was clean and tidy, with plenty of room for the four of us, certainly more than a hotel.

The apartment is centrally located, easy walking distance to L’Opera, the Louvre, Place de la Concorde and the pedestrian market along Rue Montorgueil. I’d recommend walking a lot; it allowed me to eat and drink my way through the city while losing two pounds in the process! Metro stops are also nearby. (If you have an iPhone, download the 99 cent Paris metro app; it will prove invaluable as it does not need internet access to work.)

Locally, we ate at Vaudeville (a bit pricy, but very nice), Victoria Station (great pizza and reasonable wine) and got baguettes and croissants at the nearby boulangeries. We also brought bread, wine, cheese and fruit home from the market at Montorgueil and had breakfast, lunch and snacks in a few days.

Samantha’s recommendations were spot on. She has a book with hints, places to see and shop, local super markets and other valuable information.

I cannot recommend this place more. The people in the building were polite and helpful. The area is clean and safe. There is plenty to see and do nearby with options for farther travel if you need or want. Samantha and her apartment made this portion of our trip perfect. If/when we return to Paris, we will stay here.

Lovely Apartment

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in Sam's apartment for two weeks in March. It is exactly as presented on this site. Since I have difficulty walking, this apartment is a wonderful location, as there is a hop on hop off bus stop at Hard Rock. We booked tours through Viator to Normandy and for dinner at the Eiffel tower and show at Moulin Rouge. The local operator provided great service. The tours were great fun.

Sam's Mom saved us when we lost our keys by getting us in quickly and providing us with new keys. We also enjoyed our visit with her. Many thanks

I will pass on your review to my Mum who will be delighted! Yes I agree having the hop on hop off bus stop at Hard Rock on your doorstep is very practical!! Take care and hope to see you back some day. Best regards Sam & family.

A Wonderful Week in Paris

  • 5 of 5
This was the second time I stayed at the apartment and I will definitely stay here again. The apartment is centrally located and an easy walk to the Louvre, the Metro, shopping, groceries, and restaurants. In fact, my husband and I only used the Metro twice.Using the apartment as our starting point we walked everywhere including Montmarte, Notre Dame,and the Arc de Triomphe.
The owner's description of the studio is very accurate. The apartment is clean, comfortable and quiet. It easily accommodates 2-4 people.
Her directions to the apartment, for the TV and internet were easy to follow. She also responded quickly to my emails.
I have already recommended the apartment to friends and relatives
