Amazing apartment in a fabulous location
This is a small but amazingly efficient apartment about 10 minutes walk from the Eiffel Tower. Communications for excellent, and the host greeted me on my arrival and came to collect the keys when we were ready to go, at our convenience. The apartment is a one-bedroom, with a small but extremely well supplied and efficient kitchen. The bathroom is split into lavatory and shower room, both also very small but efficient and comfortable. Many nice touches such as reading lights, towel warmer, and basic cooking supplies provided. The bed was very comfortable, the chairs in the dining area much less so; really our only complaint was there was no place comfortable to sit and read in the evening.. the apartment is not handicapped-accessible although it is on the ground floor due to steps required to get in and out, essentially you are entering through a French door with a high threshold. Entry is through the small patio area with the blue chairs. While we were there it was off and raining and we did not use the patio much, but it is a very pleasant small private space. No view, it is in the middle of a group of buildings. The washer and dryer was extremely helpful, although there are also laundromats in the neighborhood. As a matter of fact, you can find anything you need in the neighborhood. Boulangerie, fromagerie , Patisserie, boucherie, charcuterie, antique shops, wine shops, The Rue Cler markets where one can spend shocking amounts of money on fabulous fresh produce (shopping tip: anywhere else in the neighborhood will tell you the same fruit for 1/4 the price) and on and on it went. There is a small supermarket and an ATM within 5 minutes walk. 10 minutes gets you to the Metro at École Militaire and from there you can go anywhere. I cannot say enough good things about this little apartment. The price was very reasonable for the excellent amenities, and it was wonderful not have to climb stairs after a day of scootering and walking Paris until we were ready to drop. if I am lucky enough to have time to explore Paris again, I would happily stay Here again.
This is the fourth year I’ve stayed in this apartment and I love it. It’s a great location with lots of good restaurants in the area.
Safe, clean and comfortable
We were very happy with our studio apartment. It was safe, clean and comfortable. It is in a French neighborhood and we visited many of the small French shops daily. I heard only French spoken; we were immersed in the French culture. Charming;polite;gracious. Fortunately, my daughter speaks French! But I don’t. Almost everyone is bilingual so that was not a problem for me. It was a wonderful trip. We would leave in the morning to see the awesome historic sights and return to our French neighborhood for the evening and,then, to our cozy apartment. One detail I feel I must mention is that there is one steep step one must take in order to gain entrance to the apartment. It was not a problem for us,at all. But, it would be a problem for someone with a handicap. That is my reason for the four stars rather than the five stars. I recommend this apartment and I hope to be fortunate enough to return to this most awesome city and stay here once again.
Cozy, clean, amazingly close to Eiffel Tower!
This place is everything you need for a vacation stay in Paris. Me and my wife felt safe and loved that the Eiffel Tower was around the corner. It was smaller then what we are used to but it had everything you needed. Would definitely recommend and stay again!
thanks so much
A treasure of a little place. Safe and comfortable and everything you need within 2 blocks of the Eiffel Tower.
thanks so much
Small but very useful and convenient
We thought we were going to dislike the place when we arrived but soon realized that every space was well utilized and impressively organized. My husband and I had two big bags of stuff and a guitar. When we unpacked and put our clothes in the closet with big flat drawers and tuck our suitcases under the bad, it was as comfortable as home. It had many thoughtful features such as a safe where we could lock up passport and cash, and even a transformer for different voltage of electricity from what we use in the USA. The water closet and shower units ARE small, but it wasn't a problem for us because I am 5'4"110lbs and my husband is 6'2" but very skinny. The quarter of a circle shape shower unit seems to be 2x2 ft., but hot water was great, and the window unit of air-conditioner was very nice especially the week we were there was in 90 degree weather. It had very small dishwasher, oven, microwave, and even a washer combined with dryer which took some time for us to figure out how to use, but there was a binder that had all the instructions in English, so it was no problem. All other people at the conference were talking about going to a laundromat, but we were doing our laundry while sleeping. My husband and I were there only to sleep and take rests during the day for an hour or so because we had a busy schedule with the conference, so it was everything that we needed. The deck was little disappointing. I was looking forward to sitting out and having a take-out meal some nights, but it is nothing that can be used for having a meal on because it was pretty dingey without getting enough sunlight, but it was okay because we had dinner appointments for almost every night. Abundant great restaurants and proximity to many points of interest through the Ecole Militare Metro stop was one of the benefits this place offers. If we go back, we will definitely use this place.
waou, i appreciated you very nice review..
thanks so much.
