A Treasure In Paris - Very Pleased!
My husband and I stayed here for ten days. It is a find in Paris - quite lovely and very spacious. The terrace all along one side is wonderful, with pretty views, and it gives excellent light and air. There are big windows on the other side of the apartment too.
It has TWO bathrooms - hard to find in Paris! They both have sinks with vanity space and storage, and each with toilets. One has a bathtub with a hand nozzle, and the other a shower stall. The shower stall was a tight fit for my six-foot-two husband, but he could do it! And we never ran out of hot water.
The main bedroom has a pocket door that separates it from the living area, or you can leave it open. The bedroom is VERY quiet, with heavy curtains and electric roll-down blinds that make it very nice & dark to sleep in. The daybed in the den would be OK for a child or a small adult. I think anyone over five foot five inches in height would not fit well in it, though.
There is air-conditioning. It seems to mostly blow in the main bedroom. I suppose if you ran it long enough the whole apartment would cool down, but if you close the sliding door and the hallway door, the bedroom cools off immediately, and so it’s good for sleeping.
The kitchen is fine for snacks and simple meals. It has a two-burner range and small oven, and a small refrigerator and dishwasher. There are dishes and cutlery and some pots and pans. The furnishings, sheets and towels, and ect, were all very nice. There were two small hair dryers and an iron.There is good storage for clothes. There is a clothes washer although no dryer.
There is interesting art and décor, it is very nice in contrast to bare corporate-apartment rentals.
The location is good, near many Metro stops and lots of shopping. It was very safe area. The street is narrow and quiet, with little car traffic. The only downside is that it is such a small street, Paris cabbies never knew where it was. So make sure you have it written down, with the zip code, in French, to show them.
The building is lovely, quiet, well-kept, with two (small) elevators. The building manager does not speak English, but she is very nice, and works hard to be helpful even with the language barrier.
The owner lives in Nice, so we communicated via email. But she was very nice and pleasant to deal with and she (of course) spoke excellent English. All financial transactions went fine.
I liked this apartment very much and hope to stay again sometime!
