Overview

About the property

65m2, 3 rooms ground and 1st floor duplex comfortably accommodating 4 guests

If you plan vacation or business trip in PARIS, be our guest in this unique duplex full of history, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower (10 minutes) in the 15th arrondissement of Paris in the border of the 7th and the Champ de Mars.

This 65m2 three rooms ground and first floor duplex can comfortably accommodate 4 guests. Is featuring on the first flloor one bedroom + two single beds on an open mezzanine and on the ground a large living room with an open kitchen.

A nice story to tell: the ateliers d’artistes hosted engineers that designed la Tour Eiffel.

The building is unique, it was built by Eiffel at the end of the 19th century, to host engineers that created the Eiffel Tower. The “ateliers” were later converted into 4 loft style apartments. We have been leaving there for more than 10 years.

It was just fully renovated in fine Art Deco style: large white stained-glass windows (designed by famous artist Ronald Penell), furnitures and paintings.

The duplex:

- romantic and quiet, the independent bedroom has a large queen size bed (160x200) fitted with quality bed sheets, pillows and a duvet to guarantee a good night sleep. It has large storage spaces.

- the mezzanine is overlooking the living area and has two single beds (90x190) and a desk with an iMac;

- the fully equipped kitchen is circled with a bar opening on a large living area with a dining table for 6 and a lounge area with one sofa and two armchairs ;

- there are 2 bathrooms: the one downstairs with shower and toilet, the one upstairs with bath, toilet and washing + drying machines.

Lovely

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was just lovely and the hosts were helpful but not intrusive, they were able to find a good and appropriate balance. While the other reviews said it was unbearably hot in the summer I'd say it was reasonably hot. After our first day we learned how

To do this or that to ensure it would be as cool as possible; such as keeping the main blinds drawn and cracking the upstairs window and leaving the small AC on when possible.. yes it could have been cooler but really it could have been hotter so we were happy. Would definitely recoomend and stay again! Thank you for the wonderful place to stay!

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just recently stayed at this apartment in Paris. The location was great!! A 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, grocery store right around the corner, a wonderful bakery that had amazing croissants just one block away, we could not have asked for a better located apartment for our needs. I would recommend this arrangement for a family with kids, probably not for two couples. The bed arrangements were a double in a private room with a bathroom ensuite and then two twin beds outside in an open loft area. kitchen was well appointed, full sized appliances. (ie dishwasher, stove). great washer AND Dryer (very unusual to have a dryer). All in all, a great stay.

A beautiful piece of history!

  • 5 of 5

We were so pleased with this charming loft apartment. It was roomy and comfortable, and clean. The location was great, a 13 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, and a 4 minute walk to the Metro. The owner was very nice and helpful to us. He even arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport at 5:30 am. Because this building was built by Gustavo Eiffel for his engineers, I felt like the spirit of the Eiffel Tower was here. Thank you Jean-Christophe for a wonderful stay!

Stylish, clean, well appointed apartment

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful stay in Paris! Jean-Christophe is a wonderful host and the apartment is perfect. We had our two teenage children staying with us and we were all very comfortable. There are a couple of Metro Stations in walking distance (which make it very easy to get to wherever you want to go), as well as a supermarket, patisserie/bolangerie and some lovely local restaurants.

We thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment. Thank you Jean-Christophe.

Beautiful apartment, really good location and great service!

  • 5 of 5

Many positives about this place the best being that we dealt only with the owner, Jean-Christophe. This apartment is well appointed and maintained and was a perfect fit for our family of four. Nice Grenelle neighborhood with everything you need within a couple minute radius. A short walk to the Eiffel and Champ de Mars and two metro stops nearby. We have rented through VRBO many times and I highly recommend this place. Thanks again Jean C!

Great location, beautiful apartment, hotter than Haiti in July!

  • 4 of 5

Overall this property was great. It was spacious for my family of 4 and we enjoyed having 2 bathrooms. It's in a great location, near the Eiffel Tower, several bakeries and a Metro stop. We felt it was a safe neighborhood and nothing was misrepresented.

The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was for lack of communication, more or less. We knew the property didn't come with air-conditioning, however, in the middle of July this apartment is MISERABLY hot. After our first sleepless night, I emailed the owner who arranged for one fan to be delivered. It was still too hot. Miserably hot. I realize the owner does not control the weather, but being a Paris resident, they are fully aware of the conditions without any cooling.

Also, unlike other owners I've had that go above and beyond to be a "host" and offer suggestions, tips, guidance for your stay, we did not find that to be true with this property. They owners were very "hands off"; actually we never even met them, but instead checked in with the nanny and checked out with the grounds keeper. That additional touch can make a huge difference in your vacation, but again, that is not reflective of the property itself, but of our overall stay.
