My husband and I stayed at this apartment with our teenage daughter last week. Generally we had a great time but just a few comments. The details say there is a ceiling fan which there is not-this in the hottest week of the tear so far was not good. This also meant that we had to leave all the windows open at night so we could sleep only to find that this is actually a very noisy neighbourhood-lots of traffic, people and very early and daily bin lorries. The worst though was the access. Nowhere on the details does it say how tricky the access is-more than 60 steps up a very uneven spiral staircase. I myself have a bit of a phobia of spiral staircases so find it rather unnerving. It would be no good at all for anyone of limited mobility. I feel the details should include this information. The apartment itself is very small which I know is not unusual for Paris and really quite basic. The washer drier is great. A distinct lack of kitchen utensils if you did ever wan to prepare a meal you would struggle- no scissors! There is a kettle but no flex for it which is no good for a brit who likes her tea! There was no ironing board so we had to manage on the table. The owner offered to bring us one round in a couple of days but we wanted to iron things straight away. Not sure what 'half bath' in the description is supposed to mean but there is only a shower which when we were there was held up by a hair bobble wrapped round it so it kept dropping down-not great. Standard of cleanliness not wonderful but would not describe as dirty exactly maybe just a bit rough round the edges. The area itself is lovely-rue Mouffetard and the square with its cafes and boulangerie and a delight. Also very handy for metro. So all in all we had a lovely stay and I suppose for the price I should not have expected luxury. (The photo by the way is a little misleading because I thought this would be the front of the apartment when in actual fact this is a view of the square at the back which you don't get a view of as you are 4 floors up looking out onto the street one way and into a the middle of the building on the other.)
