"We stayed at the Notre Dame apartment for 2 weeks in April 2015. It was magical to watch the city turn green and blossom before our eyes. We woke up to the bells of Notre Dame every day, which was wonderful, and this apartment is easy walking distance to the Marais, the Latin Quarter, Hotel de Ville, the Louvre, Luxembourg gardens, the Bastille, and mere minutes to Notre Dame, Saint Chappelle, the Conciergerie, Isl Saint Louis (our favourite location for excellent and affordable bistros and restaurants), open air market on St Germain, Shakespeare & Company .... literally in the middle of everything. Èven though it was steps away from a very busy tourist corridor, the actual street is charming and amazingly quiet.
The apartment itself was clean and well equipped, though it would have been nice to have a comfortable couch to sit on. We found that the sigle bed with cushions, while perhaps nice to have for a third person to sleep on, was not at all comfortable to sit on to read and unwind. However, we were not there much, and the dining table and chairs were fine. Our bed was very comfortable, and it was nice to have the washer/dryer, which allowed us to pack light for the trip. We used the kitchen for breakfasts, but never did figure out how to get the coffee maker to work. There was plenty of hot water and the water pressure was excellent. It would be nice to have a shelf or two in the bathroom, (and a toilet paper holder, but we enjoyed the towel warming rack where the toilet paper would logically go...) We made do by putting our toiletries on top of the washer/dryer, and the toilet paper on the toilet tank..
Booking, check-in, and check out were all smooth and professional. Our greeter was prompt and helpful. We would stay here again."
