"The apartment is in a quiet, well-maintained elevator building. It's nicely laid out, with a separate kitchen, and it's extremely clean. Its large windows--in both the living/dining room and kitchen--overlook the rooftops of the neighborhood and make the apartment (which is well proportioned to begin with) feel even more spacious. Conveniences include a cooktop, oven, microwave, Wi-Fi, and washer-dryer, plus a shower with better water pressure than the one we have at home.
In the immediate vicinity of the apartment, there are a number of good restaurants, including several (e.g., Septime, Le 6 Paul Bert, and the Bistrot Paul Bert) that the New York Times has recently talked up. If you want to do your own cooking, as we did, you can shop for bread and pastries, cheese, produce, and meat, all within a half-block radius. The subway is just around the corner and the #76 bus (which goes through the Marais to the Louvre) just across the avenue; you can be virtually anywhere you want in central Paris within 20 minutes. A branch of Monoprix, the French superstore that's like an upscale Target (groceries, clothing, beauty products, books, etc.), is a ten-minute walk away.
We would stay here again in a flash."
