Recent Paris Arr. 15 (Montparnasse, Parc des Expositions) reviews
Perfect modern bolthole in great location
"We visited Paris on Eurostar from the UK and wanted a small, modern bolthole from which to explore on foot and we were not disappointed.
The place is small but perfectly formed but the true highlight is the view. We arrived at night and when we entered the apartment the shutters (electronic wooden roller shutters that are controlled by a switch on the wall) were down. Opening the shutters to reveal the Eiffel Tower glittering in the background, to see the Arc de Triomphe in the distance as well as the Grand Palais... it was truly something else.
The apartment is nicely furnished with a well stocked kitchen and a good quality bed, WiFi, cable TV, a safe and a landline telephone. It was very warm weather during our stay (by English standards) so the electric fan provided was very welcome.
The welcome manual although brief had everything we needed and we found extra info on local walks, restaurants etc stored next to the safe which were handy.
We would have found a couple of extra pillows more comfortable (just one is provided per person) and there are a couple of bits and pieces that need sorting (the seal in the shower, a bit of a scrub in the kitchen) but nothing that detracts from how lovely and well designed the place is.
The apartment building is very quiet and feels very safe, but more importantly, it was very welcoming and other residents we had the pleasure of meeting in the lifts or on our way in and out were warm and friendly; we felt at home.
As the weather was so lovely we spent most of our time outdoors and walked most places. It took about 30-40 minutes to walk to the Eiffel Tower, another half an hour or so from there to the Champs Élysées. On our second day we walked 30-40 minutes to Notre Dame and another half hour further to the Louvre, with it taking about half an hour to stroll home (not including the many stops we made on streetside cafes and brasseries to soak up the city).
If walking isn't your thing, taxis are readily available (we used Uber and never waited more than a couple of minutes. Gard du Noord to the apartment cost around 17€ but this was in rush hour both ways). The studio is close to a couple of metro sations and there's a big train station just over the road.
We had amazing steak at Le Grillades de Buenos Aires (10 min away) and there are lots of options for dining out.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, we hope to visit again and would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to stay in Paris."

"Marc, the flat owner, did everything possible to accommodate n assist us. He made a great impression on how friendly French could be. The flat is bright, cheerful, well set up n conveniently located. It'll definitely be our "home" in Paris in our future visit. Thank you, Marc!!!"

"By far the nicest place we stayed in on our whirlwind 4 country tour. On top of it all, it was the least expensive, even though it had everything that we needed, and then some!
Excellent location, a view of the Eiffel tower, central access to the metro and buses, and within walking distance of many of Paris' best sights. Great restaraunts nearby, and if you gotta have your Starbucks, there is one right downstairs!
If you think that arrondissement 15 is a hit or miss location, rest assured that this is a hit, and with two young girls, and a teenage son, my wife and I walked home many nights, and never felt the least bit unsafe."

"You cannot finds a better place to stay in Paris. A most comfortable apt.. in the 15th arrond. with access to all of Paris, either by foot or metro. The apt. is quite comfortable and very quiet. Astrid cannot do enough to ensure your stay there is enjoyable. Fabulous kitchen with everything one needs for an extended stay...living rm. with large screen TV, CD player and WiFi throughout. Elevator bldg. w/apt. on top floor. Many shops and restaurants in this quiet residential area area that make it most convenient to eat in or out. A short 15 min. walk to La Tour Eiffel...and metro is a few steps away. Would not stay anywhere else on my next visit but Astrid's apt. ron"
