"Wonderful apartment and great service"
Reviewed October 30, 2014
We rented this apartment for two weeks in October. First, the Paris for Rent rental agency was wonderful to work with and made renting a Paris apartment a breeze. We have been to Paris many times but previously not rented an apartment. This apartment is in the heart of the 6th Arrondissement and the location is wonderful. Our grown daughter and a friend visited us while we were there. We used the chauffeur service for getting to and from the airport. It was wonderful and for anyone who has used the normal airport taxi services, this chauffeur service is money well spent. We were met at the apartment by one of the Paris for Rent coordinators who did an excellent job orienting us to the apartment and explaining how everything works.
As for the apartment itself, let me say that it is VERY sophistically decorated with wonderful
fabrics, antiques and modern conveniences. It is located in a small, secure building. The kitchen is very convenient and we used it often, although mainly the refrigerator, the microwave and the Nespresso coffee maker. It had all the utensils that we needed. The apartment is on two floors, with the main bedroom and bath on the lower level. The bath is wonderful and very convenient. Next to the bath on the lower level is a washer-dryer which we used with no problems. There is one flat screen TV which is in the lower level but you probably won't be using it that much, if you really like Paris! The bed linens are wonderful, especially the duvets (we use a duvet at home). The king bed is flat and the mattress is very firm. The wi-fi worked well and free phone calls to land lines in the states was appreciated.
Pros: location, sophistication of the decor, modern conveniences, great (but small) kitchen and wonderful bath with fantastic shower, secure building and apartment, a delightful place to rest after a fun day in Paris, very near some great restaurants and shopping areas, walkable to most places in central Paris and there are good bus connections and metros very nearby.
Cons: So sophisticated that it is probably not for small children or even rambunctious pre-teens, street is narrow and very busy with cars and can be loud if one is a light sleeper, not air-conditioned so may be hot in the summer (we were there in October and it was not a problem), narrow, curvy stairs up two flights (no elevator), small spaces for storing lots of luggage.
