We spent one month in this apartment, and by the time we left, it felt like home;we are already planning our return to Paris. This was our first experience with a rental and it could not have gone more smoothly. From the first enquiry to the return of the security deposit,all contacts with the owner were prompt, forthcoming and very pleasant. We were in contact with the property manager before we left home and she was most helpful, and also made some restaurant reservations for us. She was waiting for us on arrival,was very approachable and readily available via e-mail during our stay, and saw us out on departure. Because she was so thorough ,and there is written information about the apartment, we didn't need to contact her, but she did keep in touch with us in case we did have any questions.
The apartment was everything we wanted and it had everything we needed: a very comfortable bed, plenty of storage,many hangers, steam iron, tiny and fully equipped kitchen, plenty of hot water, good water pressure, and excellent WIFI. We needed heat for a few days, and it worked well. Because it faces onto a courtyard,it is very quiet. We used the combination washer/dryer frequently. It works very well (European
machines do take twice as long as American ones do). I should mention that the building is very secure. Your belongings will be safe, much safer than in a hotel.
The location is perfect. Even though it is close to the Eiffel tower, the area is residential, so it has a real neighbourhood feel. There may be no better area in the city for restaurants. Le Billebaude, Le Petit Troquet,Petit Sud-Ouest, Cafe de Mars, and Le Florimond are just a few of the nearby bistros that give the area its reputation for some of the best value restaurants in Paris. Many have pointed out that the metro stop is very close. If you like to walk,you will be amazed at just how
easy it is to get to many of the attractions.
All in all,we could not have asked for better! Highly recommended.
