Excellent in every way
We just spent two wonderful weeks in Cécile's apartment. Everything was as expected, based on the descriptions and photos on the web site. The best things about this apartment are the convenient and lively location, the generous amount of floor and storage space, and the many amenities included with the rental.
The entrance to Line 7 of the Paris Metro is literally about 10 meters from the front door of the building. Line 7 has stops in the Latin Quarter, the Louvre, the Opera Garnier, Galeries Lafayette at Blvd Hausmann, and beyond. It connects to many other lines that will take you almost anywhere within 20-30 minutes.
Within a few blocks of the apartment, there are numerous cafes and other casual places to get good food. The famous market on Rue Mouffetard (about 2 blocks away) was a frequent destination. Although the street below the apartment is busy, there is little street noise in the apartment due to the modern double-glazed windows. The apartment is on the 2nd floor (European) or what Americans would call the 3rd floor. There is an elevator big enough for two persons.
The apartment was very spacious, especially compared to many we considered. There is a dining/living area with a table that would seat 4 t0 6 people and doubled as our work space. There is a sofa and upholstered chair clustered around the TV/entertainment area. The main bedroom has a large comfortable bed and lots of closet space. We used the secondary bedroom to store luggage. The WC was compact and separate from the bath/shower area (there are both a tub and a separate shower area).
The kitchenette is well stocked with dishes and small quantities of tea, coffee, etc.
There is a compact washer/dryer combination unit, which was good for small loads, but air drying was necessary to get some things fully dry. For big loads, a better and much faster option would be to use one of the nearby laundromats.
The TV had multiple English channels (and many others). The high speed internet was superb. There was free, unlimited international phone service.
Cécile and her colleague Justine were very easy to communicate with and we thank them deeply for the use of this delightful, well-furnished apartment.
