The place to go back to
I travel a lot and rarely take the time to write reviews, but I just had to share how pleased I was with this flat. Although it is not big, it is fully functional, well equipped and very comfortable with an owner whose picture should definitely be posted in a dictionary under the entries forthcoming and hospitable. I lived in Paris as a student for two years, and kept coming back on numerous occasions, both for business and leisure. My previous experiences with accommodation there were nothing to write home about, especially when it comes to flat rentals. This is why I asked the owner to let me come and check out the flat in April when I was in town on business. He readily accepted. The flat was exactly what I was hoping for after having seen the photos on this site (not a common thing), so I immediately confirmed my booking for August.
Apart from the advantages described by other reviewers (clean, comfortable, great location - close to the metro, RER and a great number of interesting sites, restaurants and shops, very well equipped, very helpful, yet discreet owner), I would like to point out some of the things I especially appreciated:
1. The kitchen is indeed well equipped and one has at one's disposal all the necessary kitchen ustensils. And I mean the real deal - new, quality ustensils and not some old rubbish the owner did not know what to do with and you can break by just looking at it. The same goes for furniture and TV. I was amazed.
2. The flat is very pleasant, comfortable and bright. All the details are in bright orange and green and really give the place the homy atmosphere one rarely feels in a rented flat. Although we spent the greatest part of our day and most evenings outside, before we went out for the day and upon our return, we really appreciated a lot of natural light coming in and the fact that the window opened onto a lively and dynamic street and overlooked the city roofs (not another building's wall, which is so often the case in Paris).
3. The bed is very comfortable and once the window is closed, the place is indeed very quiet and one is able to rest properly.
4.The building is also in great condition with double entrance door protected by the code. As a former resident of Paris, I find this feeling of security very comforting.
This is indeed a great place. I have already recommended it to several friends and hope it'll be available next time I go to Paris.
