Great apartment, perfect location

I've previously stayed in hotels and apartments, all in the 5th, 6th, & 7th arr. This time I wanted to experience a different part of Paris. The location of this very comfortable apartment is ideal - on the very trendy and non-touristy Rue des Martyrs at the foot of Montmartre (Sacre Coeur is visible from the cafes on the Rue), and with easy access to several Metro stations. Rue des Martyrs is loaded with great cafes (we loved Terra Corsa and Smiley's), markets, and shops. It was wonderful to sit in one of the cafes and watch the comings and goings of the people who live in the area, which includes many families with children and young professionals. The apartment is on the top (7th) floor (with a tiny lift) of a beautiful building overlooking a leafy courtyard, and has views to the Opera, Pantheon, & Pompadou Centre. I was there with my son & daughter-in-law and found it ideal for the three of us (four adults could easily stay but the apartment is really too small for more than that). The photos do justice to the actual apartment although the rooms are a bit smaller than the pictures show (especially the bedroom and WC). Nevertheless, it was the perfect place to stay, and the price was right. SO much more for your money than even a one- or two-star Paris hotel, plus all the convenience of your own kitchen, lounge space, and washing machine. Didier was very responsive and helpful. I loved finding and enjoying a new area of this magical city, and highly recommend this apartment for your Paris visit!
