It is a beautiful, comfortable Parisian apartment. It is conveniently located, close to the metro, supermarkets, excellent restaurants. The rooms and bathrooms are big. The kitchen is small but well equipped with everything! I would definitely stay again. Ademar and Matilde were very helpful and friendly.
Our family of 7 (5 college/high school age children) spend 2 nights here after Christmas 2016. First - we have to say how great Mathilde was to be patient and wait for us to fight our way through the Paris traffic to get to the apartment. We arrived later than anticipated (due to being stuck in traffic for 2 hours) but she was great and very pleasant!
Great location in a nice neighborhood. Very close to restaurants, metro stops (less than 1 block away) and there is a Carrefour Express just down the block for basic grocery items. The building is very secure and the apartment is on the 4th floor. One note - this is an older building - so the elevator is very small - basically 2 people with luggage will fit. The apartment is very nice. Modern kitchen (even though we didn't use the appliances or the washer/dryer in the bathroom) with two nice size bathrooms. The living room has plenty of sitting area that will fit 7 people. The dining room has a nice writing table in it with information about Paris and sights to see. We did notice a "musty odor" in the dining room only. As mentioned in other reviews - there are beautiful, old wood floors that do seem to be fairly loud. With 7 people, we were very aware of the noise and tried to walk as lightly as possible. Didn't really notice the street noise even though Avenue de la Republique is fairly busy. There is a secure parking garage a few blocks away where we parked our van. The area is very quiet early in the morning - so we were able to park close to the apartment to load the van on our departure. We were fortunate to be able to park very close to the apartment (with Mathilde's assistance) on our arrival to unload our luggage. Since it was late - we were able to leave the van there overnight until we parked it the next morning in the garage (which opened at 8 am).
Would recommend staying here when visiting Paris!
I loved this apartment. It is beautiful. I loved the living room and the dining room and the beautiful writing desk overlooking the road. I loved the washer and dryer as well. It felt like home and had everything we need. The location was convenient to grocery stores and the Metro.
My only criticism is that it was a little noisy. The building has beautiful wooden parquet floors, but those can be a bit creaky. There was also some work going on replacing windows in other flats, but the work was only supposed to last a week. Just bring ear plugs or play some white noise on your phone and it should be ok.
I took loads of photos of the apartment and I find myself just looking back through the photos wistfully sighing, wishing I could go back. I hope it will be available again if I ever make it back to Paris.
We stayed in this apartment for a week. I was with my husband, son, and his wife with their 2 very young children. The spacious apartment was very well equipped with everything we needed including a cot, dishwasher, washer, drier and even 2 hairdryers. It was a great place to stay conveniently close to restaurants, a pharmacy, supermarkets, boulangeries and the metro. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this apartment to others and hope to visit again in the future.
The flat was even better than we expected.
Very spacious and bright, great to come home late and relax in the living room and dining room. Wonderful place to eat next door and grocery is very convenient.
Metro is close and easy to use.
Matilde and Eric are wonderful hosts.
We hope to return very soon!
