Appreciate the feeling of being home, and enjoy the comfort and calm of my fully renovated apartment. Our flats are ideally located in the heart of Paris, on the border of the famous Marais area, near the Centre Georges Pompidou, les Halles and the Hotel de Ville. Within 10 minutes walking distance you are in Notre Dame de Paris, Saint Germain - Saint Michel or at The Louvre. Manyshops and stores are close to the apartment : Bakery, Butchery, Supermarket, Open air market, Theater, Restaurant, Cafe, Club, Laundromat, Doctor, Hospital, Drugstore. Easy access from Roissy and Orly airports (taxi or RER) and from the main train stations
This apartment is in a great location and we received good customer service during booking and upon check in. It is within one block of the Centre Georges Pompidou, and two blocks to the Chatelet metro station. We were also able to walk to Notre Dame and the Louvre within 20 minutes. It was a little cramped for our family of 6 (2 adults, 4 children ages: 13, 10, 6, 6), but we did fit and everyone had a comfortable place to sleep (two full size beds, one pull out couch). The kitchen was reasonably appointed and we felt safe in the area. There was abundant shops and restaurants, and two Starbucks for a taste of home.
The main reason for the 2 stars was the cleanliness of the apartment. The toilet, sheets, and towels were all clean. However, the floors and walls throughout the apartment were dirty and especially in the bathroom. The shower had a lot of soap scum on it, some hair, and stains that easily wiped off. Additionally, the picture on this site is not the picture of the bathroom in this apartment. The bathroom is actually two separate VERY small rooms. One room had the toilet and dirty cleaning tools (mop, broom, etc) and my knees hit the wall while sitting on the commode. The other room had the shower and sink...big enough for one person at a time only.
The kitchen was tidy, but not clean and we had to wash most of the utensils before using them. Additionally, the apartment has a very small water heater, and only two people could shower before running out of hot water. Also, there is not a clothes dryer, as listed, but a rack to hang out your clothes. Most of our clothes stayed damp.
Lastly, there is absolutely no street side parking anywhere near the apartment. There are two parking garages nearby, but our Mazda5 with a cargo carrier on top was too tall so we had to unload it and take it off and put it inside the car. Once we did that, there was a garage within 2 blocks of the apartment that was 70 euro for three days.
In the end, for the price we paid per night we did not expect a large extremely well equipped apartment in such a great location, but we did expect it to be clean.
