This little flat was perfect! It has everything you need and Anthea and Paolo were very helpful.
The flat is located half a block from a Metro station in a little neighborhood with EVERYTHING you could need. Lots of cafes, bakeries, pharmacies, little markets, fresh food shops and a laundromat. It was a quiet condo building with all the conveniences. We highly recommend this flat!
Lovely space and location!
Great location. Beautifully appointed studio with maximum use of space. Friendly and attentive hosts! Hope to stay again!
We were especially pleased with the location of the apartment. It is so accessible to the metro, bakeries, restaurants, groceries, and other shops. We liked the energy in the morning of the people and families hustling to work and school. On Sunday, we happened into the market across the street and it was superb.
Our hosts were also very good and helpful. Yves met us upon arrival and departure and was very pleasant. Paolo and Anthea communicated starting a couple weeks before our arrival to be sure everything was in order. They provided useful information on transportation options from the airport that saved us from being tricked into getting a non-profit flat rate taxi. (Beware of those guys at the airport!) Anthea also helped us tremendously one day during our stay when we encountered our RER station was closed. Via WhatsApp, she helped sort out our best option and we were back on our way to Versailles.
Being on ground floor, the apartment is very accessible. It is very small as we expected. I would say too small for 3 people and luggage. It was fine for us mostly because we had lovely weather and were there very little. It is definitely more suited for one or two people with not much luggage.
In general, the apartment needs some love and the photos presented on VRBO are not representative of its current condition. The bathroom being the area of biggest need. There is quite alot of mildew making an unpleasant smell and feeling of it not being clean. A couple floor tiles are loose from water intrusion.
There were some other issues that didn't greatly affect our stay but could greatly improve someone else's stay if they are addressed: The fireplace doesn't work as far as we could figure out which wasn't much of an issue. We were provided a plug-in electric heater which worked well but contributed to feeling a bit more cramped. The hairdryer blows only cold air, the towels were rough, and wall hooks to hang coats would be useful.
Finally, there was some construction occurring in the store front adjacent to the apartment. It was only during the day but it made it impossible to return for a nap or quiet lunch. Luckily, we had great weather and could be away all day. This is most likely a short-term issue and will be resolved when the store renovation is completed.
I’m really glad you had a superb stay in Paris, actually the "Ville Lumiere" is a fantastic city indeed and as said, our flat is located in a strategical position closed to everything you need or want.
Our "pied à terre" is small as described in our listing and photos on VRBO accurately reflect the current status. At the beginning of the year, small renovation works were carried out such as painting and electrical installation.
Cleaning is a key point and we always pay an extreme attention on offering a healthy and livable environment to our guests. Once a month, we use a mildew remover to remove it but, we also ask to our guests to always ventilate the shower by opening the window after having a shower. This cooperation helps us preventing the mildew.
In any case, since we take all the constructive reviews into consideration, from now on we will use the mildew remover more often.
We really love being in contact with our guests, before and during their stay, in order to give support, assistance or just advise on major events.
For this purpose, we use Whatsap to have smooth and quick exchanges and I’m really sorry that you did not get in touch with us when hairdryer broke, we could have immediately replaced it as we did after your check-out or eventually we could have explained you how the decorative electric fireplace works . Concerning hooks, actually there are 3 in the bathroom. Before next arrival, I will check if they need to be replaced either.
We will continue to make every effort to make your holiday a superb memory
A wonderful little nook in a great location
A walkable distance from the Eiffel Tower with fun cafés and restaurants close by, it was the perfect size for me and my friend.
very well equipped
Convenient local amenities
Great service, ideal location
Anthea and Yves are excellent hosts and the apartment is in a perfect location for exploring the city. Cozy and well appointed. Thanks for a fun stay in Paris!
The apartment is located, in the bustling and popular district of Paris, which attracts crowds of tourists visiting the Eiffel Tower but also from other sites as equally important: the headquarters of UNESCO, the park Citroen, the Tomb of Napoleon, or the 'Ecole Militaire and finally the Porte de Versailles exhibition center.
The neighborhood is very dynamic and commercial. There is a wide choice of shops to go shopping or to eat: restaurants, brasserie, diner, fast food. The famous street market, under bridges, underground of 'Boulevard Grenelle', is an excellent opportunity to savor the atmosphere of the neighborhood.
