|Minimum Stay||3 nights|
ideally located in the neighborhood of the root ball picquet Grenelle, with its local shops and fashion boutiques of the commercial street. its market Wednesday and Sunday morning. the large metro station motte picquet Grenelle you will go to paris many quarters. you will also have many Velib stations at the foot of the building.
The apartment has an area of about 80 m2.
Our Danish family of four rented this apartment for a week in late July 2015. This apartment is a bargain. It is spacious, clean and very well equipped. It is on the ground floor which makes it cooler on hot days.
We were advised that the sister of the owner, Nicole, would be waiting for us in the apartment when we arrived and indeed she was. We had to unload the car in the middle of the road blocking traffic - free parking spaces are very, very hard to find. Only once I had to go around the block to let traffic pass. Then parked the car for the week in the Beagrenelle Magnetic mall parking garage 15m walk away (bought at parkingdeparis.com). Although the apartment has Wi-fi it measured to only 0.5Mbit - so do not expect HD streaming. It is however quite sufficient for finding your way to the attractions on the web. Note, that the supermarket Monoprix down the corner is upstairs! Shamefully, we did not realize this until the fourth day of our stay.
The location is absolutely unbeatable! We walked to the Eiffel tower and back several times during the week. The station with the lengthy name La Mottte Picquet Grenelle is 2 minutes away and is the stop of no less than three metro lines taking you anywhere in Paris in no time at all. We used regular metro tickets (called T+) to get around - you have to travel a LOT on the metro to make the Paris Visite card worth your money. We especially appreciated the comfortable beds, the washing machine and the kitchen equipment. And of course the help of Nicole - especially when the Wi-fi suddenly disappeared. Our kids need WWW access like others need water...
The owner Eliane and her husband actually came to visit us at a camping site the week before arrival when both we and they were in Normandy - just to say hello. That is customer care!
We missed only a balcony.
The photos does not do this apartment any justice. It is a really nice place in a quiet neighborhood. McDonald's is right around the block as is Monoprix. Nicole was a blast to deal with and she has a wonderful spirit. There are plenty restaurants and other eateries within walking distance. The subway is a 3 minute walk. The Eiffel Tower is a short distance. The apartment is very clean and has everything you need for home away from home. If we come to Paris again we hope that this place will be available. My one big advice for anyone traveling to Paris is to learn a few basic words in french.
First the location is amazing! It is so close to a metro stop with 3 lines (including the wonderful 6 that is an elevated train and offers some of the best views of the Eiffel Tower from over the river). The neighborhood is full of wonderful restaurants and cafés and there is a Monoprix between the metro and the apartment for convenient shopping.
The apartment itself is quite large and very well equipped. It comes with a full size bed in each room but the owners are very accommodating and added a twin bed in one of the rooms for our second child (our kids sleep better in separate beds). The only downside of the apartment (and it is a very small downside) is the wifi doesn't really work in the living room but works great in the back bedroom. On the few nights my husband did have to work he set himself up nicely in the back bedroom and it was not a problem at all.
The best part of this apartment is the owner (we only met Eliane). We didn't arrive until 10pm in a Thursday night but she said this was not a problem and was waiting for us when we arrived. Before our arrival, she offered to get anything we might need so it would be waiting for us when we got there. We also left some of our clothes there and she kindly mailed them back to us very quickly (we are Americans but we live in France so thankfully it was not that difficult to mail them to us).
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone... I have been to Paris many times and stayed in several different parts of the city and this was, by far, the best!
We're just back, perfect apartments, absolutely stunning flat. Perfect bathroom, enough mirrors, comfortable beds, kitchen is very-very-very well-equipped, there is everything you may need from coffee maker to oven, all the dishes. Everything is provided - bed linen, towels, hair dryer, air conditioning (heating system), washing machine, iron and ironing desk. Perfectly working wifi, TV, a lot of books (all in French). Everything is clean.
I would definitely recommend this apartments for stay to all of my friends, because it is perfectly located (3 subway lines), 10 minutes walk to Eifel tower, thousands of restaurants arounf and Monoprix market just around the corner. Every Sunday and Wednesday markets with super-fresh food.
And I must say a few words about host, being supernice to us during whole stay, we felt at home, thank you very much, we will be back :)
This was our first visit to Paris so I looked at a lot of apartments on the internet before choosing this one. The apartment was lovely…. the pictures do not do it justice. The apartment was very clean and a lot bigger than I expected. The kitchen was very well equipped and spotless.
Nicole (Elaine’s sister) greeted us on our arrival which was very late because the Eurostar was delayed. Both Nicole and Elaine were very helpful before and during our visit.
The location felt very safe both late at night and early in the morning.
The flat is situated very close to the La Motte-Picquet – Grenelle Metro station which is at the intersection of lines 6, 8 and 10 which means it is easy to get to all the sights and you don’t have to carry your cases far. Alternatively you can walk to the Champ de Mars walk under the Eifel tower and get a Batobus down the Seine to Notre Dame….. not as quick as the Metro but a great way to see Paris.
My wife, teenage son + daughter and myself had a great time in Paris and we loved the apartment.
We will stay here on our next visit.
This apartment is in a super convenient location: minutes to metro, easy walk to Eiffel tower, off rue de Commerce with some good shopping, 1 block to Monoprix grocery store. We were surprised at how spacious the apartment is: the photos don't do this justice. You have a big living/dining area with windows facing on the street, and then the kitchen & two bedrooms have windows facing onto an interior courtyard. The kitchen had new appliances and most everything you would need to cook meals. The property was clean and well-maintained, and we had good/prompt communication with the owner. The only negative was that the Wi-Fi connection only worked with Apple devices. We couldn't even see the Wi-Fi network on our Android devices.
