This apartment is an absolute treasure; it looked great when we were doing our research, but on arrival it was so much more impressive and such a delight! It was more spacious than we had envisaged. The heating is incredibly efficient and the apartment is lovely and warm (we were there in December).
The layout actually makes it work like a 3 bedroom apartment, because the area with the small sofa bed can be closed off completely when you close the door between it and the kitchen.
Having 2 toilets was brilliant, as it meant that you could relax in the bath, knowing there was nobody waiting for the toilet.
The kitchen is well equipped, very functional and pleasant to use, and the small size was no issue.
The fact it is a genuinely old building simply made it more enjoyable; the timber beams are beautiful and the view is a total pleasure. We all enjoyed the clock chiming at 8.00am, and after a day wandering through Paris, we all managed to sleep straight through it some mornings...but it was actually helpful to have it remind us to get up and get out...the apartment was so lovely, we could easily have lingered there too long and wasted half the day.
It is true that the stairs could rule this apartment out if anyone has health issues or limited mobility, but I personally thought they were gorgeous, and the ascent to the flat seemed easier and quicker each time I did it.
The location is perfect; we actually walked almost everywhere we visited, as we enjoy the sights along the way just as much as the destination, but the metro station was about 2-3 minutes away.
At night it was a nice quiet location - no mad traffic or night-time revellers, but there were plenty of supermarkets in close proxmity to buy supplies till late at night.
The owner was very communicative and helpful, and Jean-Francois, who lives in the building and arranged access to the apartment. was extremely helpful, considerate and friendly.
I hope I will one day have the opportunity to stay there again! Thanks for a fantastic place to stay in Paris.
