Charming apartment in great location

This was a nice apartment with a lot of room in a charming building. The location is excellent - a metro stop right out the front door, then many attractions very close by. The Montorgueil is just a 2 block walk and is the perfect way to start the day.
There is no elevator and it is 6 stories up, so this isn't for anyone that is out of shape, and I also wouldn't recommend if you have a lot of luggage. The bathroom was nice, but the American traveler will probably find it unusual. The shower is just an open area in the middle of the room, so you have to dry the floor after each use so other people can come in.
The owner was very helpful. I would recommend putting away more personal things, such as the shampoos in the shower and all the kitchen supplies. It did feel like we were staying at someone's house that was just away for the weekend. This may be more of an American hang-up, though.
Owner's Response: Indeed, there is no lift and this is known from the start on the website. It is therefore not a surprise. Or a problem. Other tenants also told me that they are only half floors .... and my neighbors of 80 years' old go up and down several times a day. And what form! we should all do the same each day.
The bathroom is really beautiful and may require additional protection. And I will put one next time. But if you are careful, there will never be a water problem ... I've never had.
Supplies in the shower and the kitchen will be available. These are not personal things. I buy them every week so you do not have to buy coffee, tea, chocolate, sugar, soap, shampoo, cleansing gel..etc, everything is at your disposal to ensure optimum comfort.
It's not a 5 star hotel, and if you expect this then go to the hotel, but it's a very quiet, very comfortable, luxurious and very well placed where you will be delighted to spend some time....and you won't leave it surely... some tenants even asked me if I did not want to sell them!! My apartment will always be yours! welcome home!
