This apartment was as lovely as we were hoping it would be—almost exactly what we were expecting from the pictures/descriptions, and maybe even a bit nicer. Bright, quiet, beautifully decorated, and quite spacious; my family of four, including two young boys, felt immediately at home.
The property is extremely well kept. All appliances in perfect working order, with detailed instruction manuals provided; beds very comfortable; everything immaculate and well-maintained. Great wi-fi service. The one tiny, niggling issue: the apartment is on the 6th floor, and the elevator is tiny, so if there's more than two of you, you'll either have to wait for the elevator to make two trips, or send some of your party down (or up) by the stairs.
The neighborhood is beautiful and convenient, with much of "tourist" Paris within fairly close walking distance and the Madeleine metro stop just steps from the front door. Several supermarkets within a few minutes' walk (including the enormous food hall at Galeries Lafayette), as well as Fauchon and Hediard just around the corner, and numerous bakeries as well. It's not the liveliest area at night, but proximity to the metro makes it easy to get almost anywhere rather quickly.
Special kudos to Armandine at the Glam@Paris agency, who made the entire booking/arrival/departure process unbelievably easy and hassle-free. We felt very well-taken care of during our entire stay.
We'd absolutely recommend this property, and will very strongly consider staying at either this apartment or another one of Glam@Paris's properties on our next visit.
