Beautiful Flat, but Maintenance Needs Improvement
Our party of five stayed in this three-bedroom flat for three nights in mid-March.
It is as pictured-- beautiful and spacious. The bathrooms and kitchen seem to recently renovated, and were very nice. The master bathroom has both a shower and toilet, the other bathroom has a shower and toilet in separate rooms (I think that's convenient for large groups). Location is great-- the flat is in an interesting neighborhood with good food, shops and a metro station nearby. It's about a 20 minute walk to the city center. And Michael is prompt in communicating both before our stay and during.
We were disappointed with the general maintenance though. There were some wobbly tables and loose shelves that made it concerning to even set anything on them (my brother-in-law's camera was damaged after it fell off the shelf near the entrance). We kept getting locked in the toilet room because the door was sticky/ difficult to open. And a door knob to the master bath fell off the first day we were there. It felt like the place was falling apart on us.
Also, there was some basic amenities that should have been in the flat that were not there when we arrived--- we had to purchase our own hand soap, toilet paper and laundry detergent.
The flaws of this flat are more annoyances than deal-breakers, but enough for us to consider another place when visiting Paris again.
I really thank you for your feedback on your stay. And I am pleased that you enjoyed your stay to the fullest.
Thanks to your feedback, we have been able to fix the designated shelve that was a bit loose, and the door of the toilets.
I will be a pleasure for me to host you again.
Great location, close to the metro and shops and cafes. The apartment is large, comfortable and well-appointed. Beautiful decor, very Parisian feel. We loved this apartment and would return in a heartbeat!
Spacious, classic, elegant Parisian flat, but elevator starts on 2nd floor
-Wow factor as you walk-in: reminiscent of a classic French bourgeois apartment with very high ceilings and all over molding. Makes you feel you are in Paris.
-Very spacious (115 sq.m)
-Elegant foyer, living, and master bedroom/bathroom
-Views on Park and museum from living room, master bedroom, and small bedroom
-Balcony access from living, master and small bedroom
-Lots of power outlets
-High-tech labeled light dimmer switches all over the apartment
-Beautiful dramatic candelabras which, lit with candles at night on the coffee table, add a touch of glamour to the ambiance.
-2 toilets, 2 hair dryers
-Caution! There is an elevator, but it only starts from the 2nd floor. You have to climb a very high flight of stairs first, before you can get in the elevator.
-Michael is very nice and helpful, but very slow to respond, and initially confirmed my booking with the wrong address. I even wondered if it was a scam. It also took about 1 week to receive an email confirming my deposit refund.
-Missing: full scale mirror
-Custom designed closets in each bedroom, but hanging rod way too high for normal height people, making the entire hanging closet useless as you need a ladder to go hang your clothes.
-Rug, sofas, coffee table, bath towels: very stained
-No bathroom hand or kitchen towels
-No table cloth for the dining table.
-All bathroom/bedroom door handles were broken, and did not stay into place
-French doors handles did not latch.
-Most recessed light bulbs were burned out and had to be replaced (in kitchen, shower...)
-Master bathroom recessed lights above sink don't stay lit. They shut down after 10 minutes or so.
-Additional light bulbs provided in cool white (ugly lighting), instead of warm yellow light
-No door lock in toilet or bathrooms
-Even with instructions, the oven/microwave is very difficult to figure out
-No soap or shampoo
-Modern furnishing and colors clash with style of flat: get rid of the glass dining table, plastic chairs, modern sofas, green rug, purple pillows, multi-color flower/Marilyn wall art, and horrendous colors in small bedroom (blue/orange/violet)
-Add drapes around french doors in the living area to add drama: walls look too bare
-Beautiful library in living area, but too long: covers wall molding
-Install bluetooth speaker system such as SONOS
-Michael should use a checklist when showing the flat, as far as explaining the heat, intercom, TV, oven, trash...
Lovely stay in Paris
We loved this apartment and our overall stay in Paris! Michael was incredibly helpful in helping us upon arrival and departure, and was available by text at all times. We were three friends and three toddlers and the apartment had plenty of space with three large, beautiful bedrooms. Each had comfortable beds and chairs, and two had attached bathrooms that were spacious and very modern. I love that this apartment feels very classic Paris (architecture and lavender tones) mixed with modern bathrooms and kitchen (the appliances are ultra modern). We cooked here some and found the kitchen to be well equipped, but the apt was also within walking distance of many delicious restaurants and bakeries (including a bistro next door that we ate at once). We did take the metro once (2 very nearby) but mostly we just walked everywhere because most sites weren't that far. We found the apartment to be very quiet and safe. We definitely hope to return someday - it was an excellent stay for sure!
3 lovely days in Paris
We've just spent 3 lovely days in Paris, staying in Michael's apartment. The location was perfect, very near the metro and within walking distance of many attractions and wonderful shopping areas. The apartment was just like the photographs, we weren't disappointed. It's very stylish, clean and comfortable. It suited our group of 3 mothers and daughters very well, we would definitely love to return one day. Thank you Michael
Notre séjour restera un très bon souvenir. L'appartement est décoré avec soin et très bien entretenue. Les chambres sont très spacieuses. Il nous a été très facile de faire la réservation. Puis à notre arrivée, nous étions attendus par Michaël qui nous a fait une visite rapide et très clair des différents espaces. Nous avions une très jolie vue sur le parc. C'est un appartement ou il fait bon de vivre.A la fois noble et contemporain. Nous ne regrettons pas notre choix et nous attribuions 5 étoiles sans problème. SN
