Comfortable, well located apt and great welcome to Paris

  • 5 of 5

We (two middle-aged, average-sized women) stayed in this apartment for 12 nights and found it to be very comfortable. The kitchen is small but very well arranged and has everything you could possibly need. The bathroom is divided into two rooms which works very nicely and also has everything you need. The building is very secure. The location worked out very well for us. It was a 5-10 minute walk to two metro stations; walking to the Eiffel Tower took about 10-15 minutes. There are bakeries, groceries and other vendors conveniently located within walking distance and the area is safe.

Best of all are the owners, Rafic and Jasmine. From the moment we arrived, they made us feel welcome by making sure we were comfortable in the apartment, in helping us get familiar with the surrounding area and assisting when we needed some help with our travel plans. Their recommendation of a shuttle from the airport was a huge help. They live on the same floor as this apartment but are very discreet in offering their help only when needed.

When we arrived, the weather was unusually hot for several days, and there was an air conditioner and fan already in the apartment, which kept it at a comfortable temperature. We found the beds comfortable but did not sleep on the living room sofa. As noted in the overview, the sofa is not a real bed, and if used as a bed I think it would work best for a child.

We had a great time and our thanks to Jasmine and Rafic – I would stay here again if ever back in Paris!

A wonderful place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

As you can tell from the pictures, the apartment is very bright and cheery. It is located in a quiet street very close to Napoleon's tomb. One can easily walk to the Eiffel Tower or other such sites. The apartment is well equipped and has some things that very thoughtful such as outlets to charge cell phones. The owner was most accommodating. It is about A5 minute walk to the Rue Cler. I liked the restaurant Pasco which is even closer..

This is a unique, comfortable, colorful apartment. Wonderful location, and the owner is a gem.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in our apartment. It's good size, has comfortable bed(s), large TV, and

most appealing, are the many colorful art works on the walls. There is no mistaking that this is a Paris apartment.

As mentioned in the summary, the Invalides/Eiffel Tower location is wonderful. Several important sites to visit

in the immediate area plus convenient to the Metro, several good restaurants, and Rue Cler. An added bonus is that the

apartment owner also lives in the building. He was very pleasant, and he went out of his way to make our stay

a pleasant one.

Lovely apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Owners live in the building and are very attentive to your needs. The apartment is in a fantastic location on a quiet street, but near many sites and restaurants. The pictures are very representative of the apartment. There is ample storage. The kitchen is well stocked, but no microwave. We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely come back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your nice review and your 5 stars rating. By the way, we do have a microwave, it's between the Nespresso coffee machine and the toaster... I guess you haven't seen it, but will send you a picture by email! Thanks again and it will be a pleasure to see you again :)

Comfortable and Charming with a Wonderful Host

  • 5 of 5

My 9 year old daughter and I enjoyed a few spring days in this lovely apartment. We loved the elegant and cozy atmosphere, with it's colorful artwork and many mementos and interesting objects from the host's own travels. The beds and linens were high quality and super comfy. The bath and shower were clean and stylish, also with quality linens. In the kitchen, the hosts have included everything that you could need to take care of some simple meals, make coffee or tea, toast a croissant ;) The apartment is in a secure building, located in a quiet, elegant neighborhood which is just a short walk to the Eiffel tower, lovely parks, the list goes on and on... Rafic was the best host!! He provided us with maps and books, advice about places to shop, eat, relax... DO NOT MISS the car tour which Rafic offers, it was one of the highlights of our trip!!! We toured the city at the perfect time in evening, saw and photographed so many of Paris' most important monuments, churches, bridges, etc, lit up at night, and Rafic told us all about the history, architecture, neighborhood distinctions, customs, and poeple...My daughter returned home telling wonderful stories about the city that she wouldn't have been interested in otherwise, and of course I learned a lot, too. The tour really brought the city to life for us!

Thank you Rafic and Jasmine for sharing not just your apartment, but your love of city of Paris with us! We will never forget it!
