A wonderful long stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly as advertised, large and comfortable and well equipped. Like the earlier reviewer, we were lucky enough to have a five-week stay, so we got to know the place and the neighborhood very well. Our only problems were noise. It was warm and humid in May and early June, and we needed to have the windows open to sleep. We had the quiet master bedroom, but neighbors were doing construction starting at about 12:30 p.m. It was our mistake, however, to accept it and not say anything to Glamaparis for a few days. When we finally did, they immediately contacted the owner, who made the offending neighbors (we think the owners of the bakery downstairs) stop.

Friends took the front bedroom for the last two weeks, and they also couldn't sleep without the window open because of the warmth, and the noise was an issue on some nights, especially weekends. But that's just the way it is. It wouldn't bother some people, and in cooler times it would be a non-issue.

We loved the place otherwise. Great service from the Glamaparis folks and the housecleaners, and a great location. A highlight of the stay for me was morning jogs along the Seine to the Tuileries or Jardin des Plantes, and early-evening sessions at Cafe Lutece with a glass of rose and the new edition of A Moveable Feast.

We are food people (I'm a longtime restaurant critic) and we mostly stuck to simple bistros. I was quite impressed with our favorite local spot, Cafe Latin, which stood out on a street of touristy places. For a more serious meal, try Itineraires in the 5th (fantastic), and the nightly special prix-fixe at Les Editeurs in the 6th. Don't miss an early lunch (before the line gets too long) at Le Comptoir de Relais, nearby in the 6th. La Palette is good for lunch/brunch. Chez Fernand is full of Americans but the beef bourguignonne and chocolate lava cake with caramel sea salt ice cream are as good as their reputation. The seafood at Huguette is terrific. Brasserie Lipp is overpriced, crowded, and not so great, but that's too be expected. Favorite spots a little farther away included La Cantine de Troquet Daguerre (Basque/Southwest) in the 14th; Le Coq Rico in Montmartre (a splurge but home to the best roast chicken in Paris); the lunch cafe in Musee Jacquemart-Andre; Les Philosophes in the 4th; and Le Bougainville in the 2nd.

Can't wait to return.

Lovely place in my favorite city.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for five wonderful weeks in this lovely apartment. Samia at Glamaparis was a joy to work with. She answered my every question by email quickly and completely. She met us when we arrived and helped us up the stairs. She even found my missing item and a friend was able to pick it up. We loved the street...great restaurants and people watching. We became regulars at Cafe Latin (corner to the right), Cafe Libonais (the one down the street to the right and across the street...wonderful take out, always busy), Chez Clemont ( on the square with jazz at the end of the week), and Jacobine (on the passageway down the street a few block to the right just before Rue de Buci). We were also regulars at Cafe Laurent on rue Dauphine for jazz and drinks...love that place. You are within walking distance from nearly everything,..Louvre, D'Orsay, Pompidou, St. Chapelle, Notre Dame, Cluny, street markets, the Marais, Tuileries.....on and on! Bus, metro and RER are just out the door. Only drawback was the tight spiral staircare for suitcases up and especially down. Thanks goodness each group had to do it only once. We helped each other. I do hope to return. Merci Glamaparis.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your excellent feedback. It is a real pleasure to read such things about the apartment and our company. Thank you for all these tips and restaurant recommendations, I am sure these will be extremely helpful for upcoming tenants. It is true the location is perfect for exploring the capital. The 2 flights of stairs may be a little difficult to climb with your luggage (even thought we try to help you the best we can), but this is for sure the most difficult part. We truly hope to see you again in Paris :) Merci à vous for all your trust!

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

Our apartment stay was excellent. We worked with Glamparis, and they were very helpful. The location was wonderful! We love staying in the 6th and it is a 3-minute walk to Rue de Buci, our favorite street in Paris. The only issue we had is that the wifi signal in the bedroom off the kitchen is poor.

Owner's Response: Thank you a lot for your feedback, we appreciate very much! The WiFi signal is indeed weaker in the kitchen and in the second bedroom because of the size of the apartment. If you ever want to come back to Paris, feel free to contact us! Paul and the GLAMAPARIS team

Wonderful apartment with great staff support!

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed a wonderful week in this apartment in Paris. When we arrived we were met at the apartment by Samia who showed us all around. The apartment looked exactly like the pictures on the website. In one bedroom they had separated the beds, at our request, and all the beds were made up with big, warm comforters. The kitchen has lots of room to cook along with any item you could possibly need. The apartment was spacious so we could all enjoy a holiday together without feeling crowded. The location is wonderful. So many sites and restaurants are within walking distance and the RER and metro are only a block away. Samia was always reachable by email and very helpful for our multitude of questions from the time we booked to, and including, our arrival. We wouldn’t hesitate to return or recommend this apartment to others.

Great Rental near St. Michel

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located near St. Michel Metro/RAR and the boundary of the 5th and 6th Arrs. We had 4 adults and found the apartment very spacious; it was very clean, well equipped and in excellent condition. We cooked in a couple evenings and found all the kitchen appliances worked in good order. Given proximity to the Latin Quarter, it can be noisy with the windows open, but its very quiet with the windows closed. Our only (and very minor) complaint is that we found the apartment a bit warm, but it was unseasonably warm the week we were in Paris and the apartment is located above a bakery and pizza shop (great aroma in the early morning from the bakery below). The spiral staircase is a bit steep and narrow; was not an issue for us, but should be noted if it might be for other travelers. Overall, a great apartment in a great location.

Can't say enough about Samia and Damien at Glamaparis. They were great to work with, very responsive, and Damien even met us late one night when we had a quirk emergency.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such an excellent feedback. It is a real pleasure to read you. It is true the triple glazed windows do not allow the noise from the street. Given the old & typically Parisian building the apartment is located in, this explains the bit narrow wooden staircase. A personal thanks for the compliments towards Damien & myself, it was our pleasure to work with you as well and hopefully we'll hear from you very soon for a future trip!
