Great studio in a good location for exploring Paris. Studio is very well equipped and is modern and clean. Highly recommended if I ever go back to Paris I'll try and book here again

Location fantastic. Bed regrettable

  • 2 of 5

Hi. The location is great but for a romantic stay in Paris I'm really sorry to sat that this is not the place. The bed was just too noisy. It even squeaks when you take a breath.. I am sorry I really wanted this to be a romantic stay for our first trip to Paris but we came away very stressed with each other.. Just fix the bed. Get the tv working. And some blackout blinds, because every time someone goes upstairs the courtyard lights come on ..and some instructions on how to use the washing machine... All would have been great if these things were fixed.. The bed is the most most most important

Praise for this owner.

  • 5 of 5

I had this apartment booked for a week this coming September. Sadly I broke my leg in a motorcycle accident a few weeks ago and had to cancel my trip. While I am unable to speak to the apartment I can absolutely commend Stephane for his wonderful professionalism. From the initial inquiry he has been prompt in his responses and communication and promptly refunded my deposit upon my having to cancel.

I am very disappointed to not be making this trip at this time but he has earned my future business when I am able to reschedule.

Thank you Stephane!

Doesn't live up to positive reviews

  • 2 of 5

My friend and I were expecting a small studio, but the pictures do not prepare you for the tiny size of the room. There is truly no place for two people to sit comfortably.

Stephane did not warn us of the renovations going on next door prior to our arrival and he should have. The work began at 8 am and was quite loud all day. The couryard was dirty and filled most of the day with workers from the nearby businesses on their smoking breaks. We never felt comfortable using the outside table and chairs due to the construction dirt and the smokers.

The television did not work (Stephane did refund some of our money for that) but I believe that he should have known that ahead of time as well.

The washer worked fine as a washer, but the dryer took hours and got blistering hot. I would not recommend using it as a dryer. If you don't use the dryer, there is no place to hang your wet clothes, so the washer is not entirely useful either. The small closet in the photo is not really sufficient for two people's clothing, so you are basically living out of a suitcase, although there is no place to put the suitcase!

On the plus side, the apartment is in a wonderful location in the 7th arrondissement and isn't expensive for that area. There are grocery stores nearby and we did manage to cook a meal of two in the kitchen.

I feel that Stephane could have been more communicative about the experience we were going to have (construction noise and dirt/ broken tv) ahead of time. I'm sure he didn't want to lose the business. The final issue for us was when he got us a taxi to take us to the airport, he didn't call one, he went and got it, storing his bag in the cab's trunk, which we then had to pay for. If that's what he was going to do, he should have made sure to let us know ahead of time that it would cost us for him to get us a taxi.

Would I recommend this place? No, not to my friends or family. However, if you are forewarned about the size and this is what your budget will tolerate, you will be in a wonderful part of Paris. Stephane's most important weakness is his communication skills. If you can live with this, for the price, then go for it. That's why I gave it two stars. It obviously has been good for some people.

Owner's Response: Pour ce qui est des travaux il est vrai qu'il ya une gene et je m'en excuse, mais pour la tv je ne savais pas qu'elle ne fonctionné pas et pour cela je vous ai remboursé une partie du loyer donc je pense que votre critique n'est pas utile. Pour la surface de l'appartement ( 18 m² ) elle est bien indiqué sur mon annonce et sur le site Abritel, donc a vous de savoir les photos represente parfaitement le studio. Pour le taxi, il y a un numero dans l'appartement et une station de taxi a 2 minutes a pied de l'immeuble!!!! je vous rend service en vous apportant un taxi devant l'immeuble pour votre depart que j'ai été chercher a la station donc il n'as pas pu vous facturer ma course puisque je suis venu en metro!!! C'est vrai que je ne parle pas bien anglais mais je trouve tres pretentieux de votre part de penser que le monde entier dois parler votre langue. Je ne recommande pas ces locataires! In terms of construction work in the courtyard, it is true that there is a gene and I apologize, but for TV I do not know it does not work because it did work last week, for that I reimbursed a portion of the rents so I think your criticism is not helpful. To the surface of the apartment (18 sqm) is well shown in my announcement in the HomeAway website, so you have to read ... and photos perfectly represents the studio. For the taxi, there is a number in the apartment and taxi station 2 minutes walk from the building!! I makes you even service bringing you a taxi in front of the building for your departure, I went to the taxi station to find one, and i need to indicated the driver that's why I am on the taxi. And I'm sure you didn't pay for my taxi because I went by metro, and the distance between taxi station and the appartement is really ridiculous short. It is true that I do not speak much English but I find it very pretentious of you to think that the world should speak your language. I do not recommend these tenants!

Not quite as perfect as pictured...

  • 3 of 5

Very disappointed upon arrival to this property...dirty, dreary courtyard, (for smokers more than anything; shared by retail stores) construction scaffolding encroaching on entry to apartment, peeling paint on exterior, dead flowers in dirty vase on kitchen/only table, dirty rugs, dusty shelves...not a welcoming sight! The owner's response was, "It's not my fault." I was so disappointed because all the reviews were perfect! Then I found out I had to go through Homeaway Customer Service even to have access to write a review, which may or may not have been "his fault." Anyway, the fold-out bed was very uncomfortable and loudly squeaked with every move--can't imagine trying to have a romantic vacation here! The apartment has so much potential, but sadly, it was not met and we left two days early...leaving our full payment behind. The price is exceptional, however, but you get what you pay for. Location was excellent for sightseeing, which you are there to do anyway. Just don't plan on spending much time in the "comfort" of your own abode. Hopefully, Stephane won't let this happen again. He did bring us a clean shower curtain on our last night there, which we appreciated. We also suggested he provide instructions on using the washer/dryer which took 4-5 hours to complete a cycle and burnt clothes in the process. It all sounds like a perfect package in the ad...but renter beware. Our experience was vastly different than others have reported. Very puzzling, indeed.

Owner's Response: Que répondre......................... comme partout on ne peut pas satisfaire 100 % des clients ? J'en satisfait 98 % c'est déjà très bien. Ces deux personnes m'ont tout de même attribué une note de 3/5 mais à lire leur commentaire je devrais avoir 0/5 ! Les travaux de ravalement ne sont effectivement pas de ma faute et ont été votés, la copropriété entretient l'immeuble est c'est plutôt positif cependant il est vrai que cela entraîne du bruit et j'en suis désolé mais je n'y peux rien, le soir et le week end le quartier est très calme. D'autre part, je nettoie toujours le studio après le départ de chaque vacancier même si ces derniers l'ont laissé propre, je refais toujours le ménage. La personne est arrivée avec un mal au dos donc la qualité de ma literie n'en est pas la cause ! A leur arrivée ces deux amies ne voulaient me régler qu'une certaine somme et non l'intégralité du loyer convenu, ça commençait mal, plus tard elles diront que c'était une incompréhension....................L'une des 2 dames a tout vérifié dans le studio est elle est même allée vérifiée le code de l'accès de l'immeuble que je lui ai donné, elle ne me faisait pas du tout confiance et ensuite à accepter les clés du studio dans l'état où elle l'a trouvé et après avoir tout examiné de très près alors je ne comprends pas ce commentaire si négatif après coup alors qu'elle avait tout le loisir de renoncer à la location.J'ai pour habitude d'être disponible pour mes locataires et de répondre à leur demande, elles m'ont demandé de changer le rideau de douche, je l'ai fait dans la journée. Elles m'ont demandé de faire une machine de linges je leur ai expliqué mais le programme de lavage et séchage est effectivement long tout comme pour d'autres machines, l'essentiel est que le linge soit lavé et séché mais là encore il y a critique, il y a à disposition une table et un fer à repasser si le linge sort trop froissé !

Paris je t'aime

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband stayed in Stephan´s apartment for 3 nights this June and it was absolutely lovely. Stephane is very helpful we got big support from him during our arrangement and on the place as well.

Apartment is small but you can find everything you need for your stay. The pictures show the reality.

And what we find as a big advantage is that the apartment is really in the centre so almost everything is in walking distance.

When we once get back to Paris we will definitely try to live in Stephan´s place again.
