The apartment is in an excellent location, comfortable and Alexandre is always available and very comprehensive. A very good combination of owner and property.
Our family of five (3 teens) had a wonderful time staying at Alexandre's property. It was the perfect location that was steps away from everything we wanted to see and do in Paris. Alexandre was an ideal host and was very responsive to our queries. We appreciated that he also provided information about the area and where the locals like to shop and eat. He made us feel very at home in Paris. In fact, we had an issue with some entrance tickets that we had prepurchased. Alexandre was kind enough to try and call the local ticket office in order to help us sort out the issues. The kitchen was well fitted with everything we needed for meals. Shops and vendors were just outside our door. We would love to return to Paris and will definitely stay here on any future visits!
This apartment is in an amazing location! Minutes fromNotre Dame,many eateries around the corner and shopping close by. Metro and taxi rank only minutes away also. Alexandre is extremely helpful and was just a phone call away. We had a great stay thank you Alexandre.
The apartment was centrally located and we were able to walk everywhere: the only way to truly enjoy Paris! There are restaurants, bars and stores all around and you will never go without food or wine. The apartment is exactly as shown in the pictures and the beds were comfortable and clean. Instructions on how to use the wifi, tv and other appliances are available in English and easy to follow. I corresponded with Alexandre through email only and the response time was short and answers helpful. Getting to CDG airport is easy as the RER line B will take you there directly (Notre Dame - St-Michel).
Because of their location, the 5th and 6th arrondissements are busy areas and full of people at all times of the day and sometimes late into the night. If you are looking for a quiet residential area, this will not be for you. We wanted a great location and this is what we got. And we managed the noise at night by putting in earplugs when it was necessary :).
The apartment was In a great location. Close to a busy pedestrian street with restaurants and good bakeries. Walking distance to the metro was handy. The apartment is big and spacious and fit three of us perfectly. As other have mentioned it could use a bit of a touch up,( new paint and towels) which is very minor but would make it a lot better, and the noise coming from the street at night is loud. Usually till 2 in the morning for most of the week. The back bedroom was more sheltered from the noise, but the front bedroom was loud so not great for light sleepers. But I guess that is the price you pay to be right in the action which this apartment is. Eric Kayser is couple steps away as is Paul. So easy for morning croissant.
We were two couples--one older, one younger. We never actually met Alexandre but he responded almost immediately to every query. His instructions to get into the apartment were clear and worked beautifully. He left information and recommendations for restaurants that we were very happy with. We felt safe at all times and walked to most of what we wanted to see and do. We took the train from CDG to the St Michel stop and walked to the apartment--it couldn't have been easier. So easy that we did the same going back to the airport.
If you are looking for luxury this is not the apartment for you. But if you want clean, safe, fully equipped kitchen, great bathroom, responsive host, good wifi, adequate space for two couples, and central location to everything including the best bakery ever, then this is the place for you. Alexandre also was nice enough to let one of our couples leave their luggage in the apartment well beyond checkout since their plane did not leave until later in the evening.
The only drawbacks: one of the bedrooms was a little noisy but earplugs took care of that, and if you have any mobility issues it would be a problem because the apartment is on the third floor (fourth floor in US) with no elevator. I will say that my husband and I are in our seventies and the stairs were quite manageable for us. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.
