Cobblestone runs a really great operation. The service from when you book the apartment, to the lovely greeter meeting you at the door of the building is excellent. Cobblestone go the extra mile to make you feel welcome and are there if you need them. They offer great extras like free wireless (and free international calls), along with movies, and guide books.
I have been to Paris many times, but this time we really special, and the apartment made such an impact. The area was quiet, close to the metro, easily accessible via the eurostar, and great local amenities: 2 grocery stores, a bakery, cafes, restaurants, all on your door step. Au Bascou in particular was an amazing restaurant within 5 minutes walk, l'absinthe was a great cafe for a quick bite, or a nice evening drink with a great atmosphere. There is a great market nearby as well, that is great for food, stop by and pick up some ingredients for dinner, or simply stop by for a bite and some great wine.
The apartment is of a normal size by European standards, but the living room/kitchen may seem a bit small by American standards. It is well laid out with the bedroom on the 2nd level, and a nice comfy bed and TV upstairs. The kitchen is a small galley style kitchen that was great for 1 person to operate in and had everything you needed. I would not recommend this property for elderly or less able bodied travellers because of the spiral staircase up to the bedroom.
I really do recommend Cobblestone highly, and really enjoyed the apartment. It made a really nice change from staying in a hotel!
