Great Home Feel Paris Apartment for a Couple
Best apartment rental for a couple in Paris. Best location-right across (1/2 block) from Notre Dame and Seine river and centrally located, Jonathan the owner is most accommodating and genuinely nice and speaks English very well. Located on the top 4th floor (5th US, Parisians don’t count the main floor) and it’s very quite. It’s a huge plus to be on top floor since most Parisian apartments have hardwood floors with no carpet on the floors to absorb the noise. Also, there are only 2 apartments on the 4th floor (other floors have 3 apartments per floor); this rental apartment and the owner’s apartment right across from the rental apartment. It’s an old building with no elevator, but we didn’t mind walk up and down the stairs. An old building, but completely remodeled apartment with modern amenities and decors; great wifi and air-conditioning (there aren’t that many Paris apartments have air-conditions so it’s great to have for upper 80’s weather), great shower with a good water pressure and a towel warmer!, you’ll need to bring your own toiletry, no washer and dryer (cloth dryer racks on the terrace), British English speaking cable channels, but no American news channels like CNN, large 2-3 laptop size safe, very comfortable bed-2 skinny single mattresses laid side by side to make a queen or king size, apartment security door with a camera. It’s comfortable size for 2 people/US standard and doable with 2 additional little kids, but it will be VERY tight for 2 additional adults since both bathroom and the kitchen are functional only one person at a time. The kitchen was equipped with all the modern amenities and we did use them (note, like most European standards, the freezer/refrigerator combo was a 1/3-1/2 size of a US standard freezer/refrigerator combo). Within 2-5 blocks, there are multiple train stations (30 minutes to and from Charles de Gaulle airport-take RER B), ATMs, grocery stores, delis & bakeries, farmers market (Tue, Thur, Sat.), great restaurants (great Lebanese-Al Dar on next block, Spanish, Moroccan, falafels, gyros, gelatos). Had many lovely dinners on the terrace with our cheeses, bread, fruit, vegetables from farmers market and a deli/bakery. Great place to come back to relax and enjoy after a full day of running around site seeing! Love the spirit of live Parisian music and dancing at Notre Dame every night. Had a wonderful memorable time here for 2 weeks. Truly it’s a home away from home here. Thanks Jonathan!
