Excellent location and communications!

  • 5 of 5

Responsive communications - Isabel was clear and quick to answer our (many) questions. Easy, timely, and friendly check-in. The 2 apartments are charming, spotless and in a perfect location. Returned damage deposit within a day of check out. Merci Isabel!

Perfect location

  • 3 of 5

These tiny studio apartments were fine for us but a bit small for our 2 week visit to Paris.

The location was ideal. Restaurants and bakeries just outside our door, groceries and market 1/2 block away, metro very close by and only a few blocks to Notre Dame!

A small elevator was perfect for luggage and heavy groceries.

The places could have been cleaner both superficially and deep cleaned. One of them really smelled of cigarette smoke!

A fresh coat of paint would make a big difference.

We would probably recommend these apartments for budget conscious adventurers. Especially if the spaces get a deep cleaning and are non smoking in the future

Owner's Response: Dear Dave, My apartment is not smoking and I am very strict about it. Unfortunately, I can’t have control on that at all times and I depend on my guest’s respect and consideration for other people. I can say that most of them have been very nice on the past 17 years, but there is always that someone and I am sorry about the cigarettes smell. I am surprise you did not find the apartment clean up to your standards. We had good commentaries on the neatness of it (you can read below). I encourage my guests to immediately call the manager if they find any problems. It would have been good if you did. We, quickly, would have the cleaning team to go there. Best regards, Isabel

LOTS OF PROS for this property. First is the EXCELLENT location, right on Rue de Rivoli. We were met at the discussed time by staff for entry into the apartments. We felt very safe with a code for the main door (mailboxes, etc.), a key for the interior door and then a key for your apartment. You can choose to use the stairs as these are on the 3rd and 4th floors, or there is a small lift. It is within walking distance to Notre Dame, The Louvre and many other spectacular venues. We spent four nights, using both efficiency apartments. Easily accessible to everything needed, with guide books for reference and videos if you wanted a quiet night in (even a few in English). There are many restaurants in the square below that are open 24/7 and are very friendly. We tried every corner for breakfast and liked them all! Fair prices and full plates. Although all were good, our favorite was the lamb plate at Feria Cafe and the ice cream at Le Gribouille. Each morning, we would ask our waiter the best way to get to our next destination and they were so very helpful. Isabel, Marie and their staff were wonderful! Quick reply to any email or text sent. We had trouble with the internet one day and because we were going sightseeing, we didn't let them know until we really needed it. That was a big mistake on our part because as soon as we alerted them that we were having trouble, both Isabel and Marie were sending us solutions and offered to have the maintenance staff stop by.

Cons: If you are claustrophobic, the lift is very, very small. Barely enough room for 2 people and one bag. It is efficiency at its best!

The apartments are clean and adequate. The only reason we gave it three stars is that they could both use an update in both furniture and decor. This is simply our opinion and DOES NOT take away from the convenient location nor attentiveness of the owner and her staff. For instance, the sofas in both apartments are really chaise lounges with no back nor arm support (except for the mirrors in one apartment) leaving only the chair for any back support while sitting. A table with folding leaves seems like it would give more room in the apartments rather than the large stationary tables. Again, our opinion only - don't let the older decor stop you from renting.

Overall: We would definitely rent at this location again; however, next time we would stay longer!!

Excellent location

  • 4 of 5

As others have indicated, the location could not be better. The description is a little misleading in that the apartments aren't actually connected but are separate apartments on 2 floors with the common staircase outside. They are small but adequate. Also be aware that the elevator is only big enough for 2 people. Aside from those caveats, everything you could want is nearby and access to all the sights is very easy. It was perfect for us traveling with another couple and a wonderful area to stay in Paris.

Paris trip to remember

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED the pair of apartments and had a wonderful stay in Paris. The location of the apartments can not be beat. The Metro is one block away. Restaurants, coffee houses, bars, and boulangerie are all located steps away from front door in the apartment square. The neighborhood is darling and extremely safe. Notre Dame is a short 10 minute walk. The apartment manager was excellent and met us upon arrival from the airport. She was professional and made us feel at home. Both apartments had everything for basic needs with the bonus of air conditioning. The beds were very comfortable and the apartments were very clean and neat. This was our second stay at these apartments so I can honestly say that I would rent them again. Thank you so much for making these apartments available to share. My husband and I are already planning on returning soon.

Great apartment in an excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We had an amazing time in Paris, especially the optimal location of this apartment. There are many things you can find within walking distance, cafes, restaurants, metro, buses, sightseeing locations, etc.

The owner Isabel was very helpful during the booking process. Due to our flight delays and luggage lost, we arrived later than expected, so didn't really have much time to meet with the manager. But we were provided with a very detail instruction booklet for everything within the apartment.

The apartment looks exactly as the pictures described, with pullout beds, kitchens, washing machines, bathrooms, couches, dinning tables and air conditioner.The area feels pretty safe even at night. We really enjoyed our time here in Paris. Thank you very much!
