Great long term stay
I just spent 3 weeks in this studio and it was wonderful. As others have said, it is bright and clean. The main bed is comfortable but soft. The kitchen is well equipped with coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster, dishes, cutlery, pots etc. The bathroom has a nice shower. There are adequate plugs in the unit and lots of artificial light. Cleaning supplies are provided to keep the unit tidy, including a vacuum and broom. There is enough storage space that I was able to completely unpack and put everything in the closet, even hangers are provided. Of course the best feature is the location. It is literally within walking distance of almost everything. Right around the corner you can find a wine shop, small grocery, bakery, and crepe stand! There are small cafes everywhere.
Since I was there for such a long stay and was actually living in the unit I can provide a few helpful hints.....there is good water pressure and lots of hot water but you have to wait for it, just be patient. The unit has central heating but you don't control the temperature. It can be quite warm at night but leaving the curtains closed during the afternoon helps. There are free phone calls from the studio phone to many countries but only to landlines. There is free internet provided however and it is fast enough for skype.This is European living so things are different than in N.A. .... you will not have face cloths provided. There is no top sheet on the bed just a bottom sheet and a duvet with cover. The washing machine is a standard two in one washer / dryer so laundry is not quickly done. These things did not detract at all from my stay but I think they are good to know.
The only problem I had during my stay was with Nathalie, the concierge / building manager. I tried to talk to her more than once during her posted office hours but she doesn't seem to answer her door. Once I stood there for twenty minutes knocking at intervals to no avail. Another time after the fourth knock she answered the door and shouted at me for knocking too loudly, closed the door in my face and went away without ever finding out why I was there. Even with that experience I would still recommend staying in this studio, the location alone can't be beat!
Owner's Response: Thank you for your long and very detailed review Angela. We are really glad you appreciated our apartment , and your stay in Paris.Thanks also for giving your point of view on some imperfections. It always helps us to improve (the temperature control is fixed !) We want to add two things though:
The kind of duvet we have doesn't need a top sheet. The cover , renewed with all the linen, is the top sheet. The bed is and easier to make with this type of soft and comfortable duvet.
Nathalie,is the elderly lady in charge of cleaning the hallways, and distributing the mail. Most guests don't get to meet her, but she is usually a helpful and smiling person. Please accept our apologies for her behavior this time.
Thanks again, and we are looking forward to having you again as a guest for your next trip to Paris.
