Overview

Vivienne Apartment Rental Photos and Description

44 sqm, 1 Bedroom, 1 Dining/Living Area, 1 Bathroom, 1 Kitchen, 1 WC, Sleeps 4

Location, location, location …

Magical sparkling lights at night on top of the Eiffel Tower seen from the apartment giving you a wonderful sense of ‘Yes I really am in Paris!’ A glass of wine in one hand and a nibble in the other relaxing in our cozy lounge or perhaps a night of ‘dining in’ followed by a great night’s sleep in our uber comfortable KING-SIZE bed will give you the best chance of recharging the battery. There is also the luxury of a lift in the building.

The apartment is amazingly quiet and thanks to its central location you are able to walk to all major sights within a few minutes’ walk. In the evening if you do wish to catch the metro back, the apartment is well served in terms of public transport. Luminous with three large windows, it has a separate bedroom and separate lounge.

Apartment size is 44 sqm:

1 Bedroom KING-SIZE bed or 2 single beds,

1 lounge and dining area. (option: 2 additional roll up beds)

Guestbook comments from the owner

***** 5/5



We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Sam's place in the heart of Paris with 3 small children aged, 6, 3 and 5 months old. We stayed there for 6 nights and was sad to leave without seeing any snow. Sam's description of the place was very accurate and the location was the best. We walked to the Louvre almost every day and was able to get on a hop on/hop off bus from Hard Rock Cafe just across the street. Sam's place was clean enough but we had to move some furniture around the studio to make enough space for all 5 of us. Even tho the studio was small it was cozy enough and we enjoyed our stay. Also on our last day Sam allowed us to check out late due to our late flight and having a baby. She accommodated every needs we had and was even willing to make an appointment with her doctor when i became ill for a day! When/if we go back to Paris, we'll definitely stay at Sam's place again. Thanks Sam, for such a wonderful experience in Paris!

Overpriced and Overrated

  • 2 of 5

The building was locked when we arrived at 2:00 pm although we were told it would be open. The apt. was not prepared for English speaking guests -no English tv stations available, no instructions for operating any of the appliances, no wi-fi, no instruction on disposing of garbage. Finally on day 5 the lift stopped operating and we met the owner's mother, who lives on the 5th floor. She called the owner and a technician was sent over to remedy the situation. The living room rug is filthy. Drapery hooks broken. The is apartment has been sadly neglected by the owner. We requested a small refund, but that request was ignored as were the messages we left on her phone.

Excellent location and unbeatable price

  • 5 of 5

The location of the apartment is excellent. You are a walking distance from several attractions. The metro station is just a block away and you can go anywhere from that point. Good restaurants and the owner's recommendations were amazing. The shuttle to airport is close as well as groceries stores.

The apartment itself was everything we expected per the owner's description. Fit our needs and everything worked just fine. I recommend this place more for a couple rather that a family with small children like me.

Thank you Sam for your flat!

A nice place to stay - if you can get in

  • 2 of 5

There are many nice things to say about this flat - it is very much as described and pictured and roomy, especially for a couple at this price point, it's bright and cheery, with great light all day long, quiet, centrally located with attractions minutes away and multiple metro stops within 5 minutes' walk. We we were happy with our choice, and the owner was extremely responsive at the outset, including a phone call to the US within an hour of my initial inquiry. We paid in full before arriving, and provided our flight info as requested. The owner sent a confirmation with local guidelines, and instructions on how to get in the building if they were not there when we arrived (which was late evening). These even included a photo of where the key would be left. But here's where it gets ugly. The buzzer for the street door didn't work as we were told it would. . We tried and tried, and called the owner who provided her number for 'any problems,' from a local cafe. The calls went to voicemail- twice. I left messages even though there was no way for her to phone me back at the cafe. My partner waited on the street with our luggage. And let me say, by now this resourceful New Yorker was close to sitting on the curb and weeping at 11.30 at night. Hotels, I knew, were largely booked (Fashion Week). I rang every buzzer in the building in desperation, with no reply. After an hour or so a man exiting held the door for us and we got in. The key for the flat was just where the owner said it would be. Almost the worst part: I sent a pointed, but civilized, email detailing this nightmare and distress, including her not answering her phone. The response? "Sorry you had trouble with the door" and "glad you're safe and settled in." She noted her parents live downstairs, and 'you can always buzz them - they were home last night," and said she would "ask them to check the building entry door." We checked that button each day of our 6-day stay, and it never worked, except with the key. The worst part was that, knowing our arrival time that night, she didn't answer her phone. You might go to bed early, but if you know guests are arriving late, you leave that phone ON in case of issues, if you're running a business. This is a no-brainer. All followed by a perfunctory "sorry" and "hope to meet up!" So we couldn't recommend the place based on this experience, though the flat itself was just what we'd expected and hoped.

Absolutely fantastic place for our Paris holiday

  • 5 of 5

This place was amazing, just what we needed for myself and partner and our 11 year old daughter. You could literally walk to all the brilliant sites of Paris, we only caught the metro a couple of times.The location is just wonderful and is just a few minutes walk from the louvre and the Opera house.

Sam was great, easy to deal with and answered all my questions promptly.

I would definitely return.
