The apt at 10 rue JJ Rousseau, 1st floor, is charming, well-appointed, and perfectly located to visit all you'd ever want to see in and out of Paris ... without needing a car. Even though the apartment is on a small quiet street, it is in the middle of wonderful restaurants, shops and only two blocks from the Louvre. The owner provides current and accurate suggestions / recommendations of restaurants and pastry shops within the immediate area, and the bookshelf contains more guides to Paris than I thought existed. We would definitely stay here again, and have already recommended it to friends.

Great Location but..

  • 2 of 5

We are a well-travelled middle aged couple. We neither choose the most expensive hotels nor do we choose the least expensive hotels.

Nancy was very responsive to our pre-arrival questions. Fernando was at the apartment when we arrived.

The location was great one block off Rue Saint Honore in the 1st.

Entering the building, you find a long narrow hallway lit by a light on a timer with a narrow circular well-worn stairway with irregular sized steps. Depending up how long it was since the timer was activated, you could (and we did) find ourselves in the dark half way up the stairs.

The photos of the apartment are mostly accurate. The bathroom photo shows a glass shower door. The apartment had a red shower curtain hung is such a way that you were required to keep pushing the wet curtain off your body. The only bathroom is en suite meaning anyone needing to use the bathroom while another is still sleeping necessarily awakens whomever is asleep.

The bedroom photo shows the bed on one side of the room but does not really show the bed is against a wall such that whomever is sleeping on the wall side of the bed must crawl into or out of the bed from the end. Opening the bedroom window caused construction debris piled up outside the window to cascade into the bedroom onto the dresser and the floor. The window in the bathroom shared the same construction debris.

The washer/dryer combination was not clean by any standards. The washer sometimes worked. The dryer did not work at all.

The apartment had an odd assortment of glasses, pots, pans, cooking utensils, and towels. It would have been nice for my wife and I to both have a wine glass rather than a wine glass and a water glass. The appliances in the kitchen are old but they worked.

For us, the overall experience is not one we would like to repeat. If you, on the other hand, find the objectivity of this review way too picky, you will love this apartment!

Owner's Response: I am sorry that the apt did not meet your expectations. I wish that you would have said something to me when I had contacted you while you were there. The light in the hallway is called a minutier and only lights for a minute. There are several switches as you go up the stairs if it should take you some time. As for the red shower curtain, I'm not sure I remember that being there! Most showers in France have a 1/2 glass stall. It is odd but that's what it normally is. As for the washer, I'm sorry if you had a problem w/it. I believe that we had put something in the dossier about the washer not really being a good dryer and to use the laundramat for the drying across the street. Only 1 wine glass? I wish that you had told Fernando or me. He would have purchased some for you or we would have reimbursed you if we had known. The building just went thru a year-long million euro renovation and they are at the tail end of it. The courette may well have still had some debris in it. I am sorry for that. As the owner is not on site, it's difficult to keep up w/some of the details. I hope that you enjoyed Paris nonetheless. You can't beat the location of your stay!

GREAT Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing place to stay! It has a wonderful atmosphere and the neighborhood is fabulous, as well. Exactly as advertised and photographed, and well-appointed. It has everything that you need. The apartment is convenient and within easy walking distance of major sights. The Louvre is only a few blocks away and there is great shopping in the immediate vicinity.

I cannot say enough positive things about Nancy and Fernando. This is the third time in 8 years that I have rented from them because you always get exactly what you expect! Nancy is so great to work with and the lines of communication are always open. I will rent again!

Great apartment in a perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Paris while staying in this cute apartment. Nancy and Fernando were wonderful in assisting and communicating before and during our stay. We had every amenity we needed for a relaxing stay and even cook a few meals! The location is perfect for exploring all of Paris. Lots of nice bakeries, shops and restaurants in the area.

Fantastic week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

I don't know where to begin! Just read all the previous reviews and you will know exactly what to expect. The apartment was just as advertised: clean, affordable, central location, close to the Louvre--and I do mean close-less than a five minute walk. Nancy was responsive and a joy to work with in setting everything up. We were met at the apartment and were shown where everything was located and given a local contact if we needed anything additional. We would stay here again.

Comfortable apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

This is a clean, comfortable apartment outfitted with everything you could need to feel right at home. We didn't stay long enough to really do any cooking to speak of ~ but the kitchen had plenty of pots and pans and utensils of all sorts. Making the arrangements over the internet to rent the apartment was handled efficiently and professionally. Fernando met us at the apartment, took the time to explain how everything worked, and made clear that he was available if we had any questions or problems. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was clean and modern. TV and Wifi worked perfectly. We especially appreciated the packet of local information that was provided to us. Information about nearby grocery stores and restaurants and much more. We tried one of the recommended restaurants and it was a winner. Just a few steps from the apartment was Coup d' Etat. We had a wonderful meal with great service. We most certainly do recommend this apartment.
