We stayed in this lovely apartment for four nights in late August, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. The apartment itself is larger than we expected and extremely well equipped - the furniture is lovely and comfortable, the kitchen is thoughtfully designed and the bed linens are a very nice quality. It is very convenient to the Champs Elysees and Arc de Triomphe, but is also at the edge of a nice residential neighborhood with wonderful small shops. In particular, there is a traditional market street a few blocks away on Rue Poncelet complete with green grocer, butcher shop, fromagerie and patisserie. It's true that the traditional brasseries in the neighborhood are pricey, but the Thai restaurants are very good. If you are traveling with kids, my daughters (8 and 10) particularly liked Parc Monceau which is a short walk away. One caution is that in traditional Parisian fashion, the elevator is tiny. That was okay since we mostly preferred to take the stairs (four flights up), BUT it was tricky trying to get all of our luggage in plus one person to hit the right buttons.
