We recently spent 5 days at the Haussmann apartment while exploring Paris. It was perfect in every way for 2 couples! The apartment was spacious and very clean and the location was ideal. We loved the neighborhood shops and restaurants - anything you could want is across the street, next door or only a few blocks away. And, the metro entrance is just across the street. You can easily get to central Paris in 20 minutes.. I could have spent days just enjoying this neighborhood and the 12th Arrondisement. The first night at the apartment my husband and I walked through the neighborhood purchasing bread, cheese, wine, fruit, pastries, and sandwiches at different shops. A full grocery store is also across the square which we only used for items we couldn't get at the smaller shops.. On Tuesday morning there is a wonderful outdoor market on the square. Instead of going out to dinner that evening, we purchased a delicious assortment of items from the market. I would highly recommend this apartment. If felt like living in the City instead of being a tourist in a hotel.
