Great location and charm
This property was a great part of my first trip to Paris. The location is great, the apartment was well stocked for my needs, it was very quiet, and Mr. Dominique was very responsive and proactive with communicating arrival and departure expectations. One thing I learned: it’s very dark once in the apartment building, but light switches are on each floor across from the lift.
Thank you Kyle for your review. Accomodating you was a pleasure.
In fact, electricity saving becomes very populat here. I hope that your are not afraid of the dark ;)
My vest wishes again for 2019.
A beautiful place with a love story.
Beautiful apartment with an excellent location. We enjoy our 3 weeks there. We have been many times in Paris but this time was special. Next year we will try to return again to this apartment. Some minor improvements are necessary like new towels and a safety box but beside that it's the perfect Parisian place to enjoy the city of lights.
Amazing find in Paris
Outstanding location. Beautiful apartment in classic French neighborhood. Big tub for long baths. Olivia, the concierge, lives in the building. A perfect Parisian stay!
Just as presented. A movie stars daughter's Paris apartment.
Beautiful woodwork of a bygone era. A pleasure to be in. Modern bathroom and small but adequate kitchen. Short walk to Arc de Triomphe and longer one to Eifel Tower. Bus stop almost at front door, Metro near by. Read about Annabella and enjoy her portrait over the bed and several photos about the apartment. The owner was very accommodating. Our week stay was too short.
Wonderful apartment in Paris
We truly enjoyed our stay at this property. The apartment was cozy. Dominique is a wonderful host, answering all of our questions via message about staying there and things to do nearby, and was also a great resource for getting around Paris easily. There is great shopping nearby and good food all around. You are either a bus ride or an easy walk from so many Paris attractions. Having the ability to open windows to catch a breeze was wonderful as well. I hope we can visit again.
Having Teresa was a pleasure.
She left the apartment in excellent condition and was an easy and positive guest. I would welcome her again with pleasure.
Great Location with Lots of Quirks
The location of the apartment was fantastic. It is close to two metro lines, steps away from L’Arc de Triomphe and Champs Élysée. The apartment is in this beautiful old building and is quaintly decorated with a balcony. The building has an old fashioned elevator that is surprisingly roomy, fast, and reliable. The flat was very quiet at night. Dominique was responsive and stayed in communication until our issue was resolved (no hair dryer for the first 24 hrs).
Now for the quirks:
1)There are lots of decorations on almost all available surfaces so that there was not enough usable surfaces without carefully setting aside some of the decorations.
2)There was only one free electric outlet that we could find. We had to unplug some lights to accommodate the charging of our various electronic devices. The plugs are all the way down on the baseboard in corners or behind cabinets/tables, not very accessible.
3)The bed was not made. We had to make our own bed which was not a problem since I am particular on how I like my bed made.
4) There was not an abundance of amenities. We had one small round soap when we checked in so we had to go buy shower gel/soap that evening just before the stores closed. We also had to buy toilet paper towards the end of our one week stay.
5)The only closet was in the bathroom.
All of these quirks, while unexpected, did not really pose a big problem for me as I was able to work around them. The one thing that really annoyed me was the towels. It would be an understatement to say the towels have seen better days. These towels were threadbare and dingy. Some of what I presumed were supposed to be white towels once upon a time were now gray. Dominique had asked us to be mindful of the number of towels we used so I restricted us to use one hand towel and one bath towel per person for the week. I just expected nicer towels...
All points of view are very welcome and I always want to improve.
The readers will make their complete and most objective opinion about my place after having read all reviews. I thank Joan for her personal testimony.
Regarding the hair dryer, as Joan told me that she could not find it despite my explanations about its location (in the closet above the water basin), I thought first that it had been stolen and asked the maid to bring another one for her. After her departure, I found the original hair dryer at its right place... Joan had just not found it!
For the bed and amenities like soap or shampoo: my place is a apartment for rent, not a room in a private apartment. Guests live their own life independently. It is not a hotel neither. There is always a small shampoo in case of emergency.
Besides the closet on the bathroom, there are three commodes (chest of drawer) that are empty in the living room and the bedroom (12 drawers in total).
Regarding the decoration of the apartment, photos show how it is. There should not be surprises.
For the electric outlets, there is one free in the living room, another one in the bathroom and in the kitchen. There is already a multi-socket close to one of the commodes in the living room..
Yes, some older towels are not pure white -although perfectly clean- but there is a wide choice of them, from pure white to green... Because of hard water, towels here turn to (very) light grey after some time.
