We embrace hotel standards of welcoming you as a guest and looking after you. Professional cleaning. Top quality bed and bath linens. You'll be met at your apartment by a trained and professional agent

ABNB REVIEW. THANKS JAMES - LOVED THE STAY. ......................................

The apartment is in a great location, really central. We were conveniently met at the property and showed round, James/Grace has also left us some milk, water, juice, and flowers which was a lovely touch and meant there was no rush to the supermarket! Bedrooms were clean and well appointed, beds very comfortable and for such a central location they are very quiet at night as they overlook the courtyard rather than street. The kitchen has ample equipment and you can cook easily. Living room has plenty of space and seating. We loved the apartment and will defiantly stay again!

Perfect 3 bedroom apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in the St Honoré apartment was wonderful. The rental was well organised, check in agent very friendly and the apartment itself as described. We had plenty of room as a family of 7. Our flight arrived early and James organised for us to check-in well ahead of the scheduled time so we could drop off our bags. This made a big difference for us. The bedrooms are quiet and beds very comfortable, bathrooms really good quality. No complaints at all. The area could not have been better. Loads of restaurants, cafés and the Louvre is so close as is the Seine, everything we wanted to visit in fact. We did not use public transport but there's a main line metro stop a block away. I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment to friends and family. Thank you.

Great apartment in Great Area

  • 5 of 5

We loved the area and in particular the street that the apartment is located on. The proximity to central Paris as well as the metro is outstanding. We spent 9 nights there and had an amazing time. It is on the third floor but that is mentioned in the description (68 steps total). This could be an issue for some folks as the steps are narrow and steep. Our only hiccup was that the air conditioning unit in one bedroom failed and because it was a weekend took a few days to replace. The owner was responsive however and fortunately the weather cooperated.

Lovely apartment with A/C in top location

  • 5 of 5

My family of 6 plus my daughter's friend really had a good time here. The whole rental process was effortless and professional from the check-in to the guidance we got during our stay. We felt in safe hands and were SO grateful for the aircon as it was roasting in Paris!

We walked everywhere and will be back.

Clean, wonderful near the Louvre. walking distance to everything

  • 5 of 5

I loved it. James and Tom were very helpful the whole while. Everything was in order when we came to the place and there was so many towels. You don't know how much that helped for 6 females who take many showers. Everything was within walking distance. And anything that wasn't walking distance or we're just too lazy to walk to, we called an uber. There was enough space for everything and many supplies within the house. Overall good visit! Kudos for my first homeaway.!

We spent a lovely 2 days here

  • 5 of 5

We are temporarily living in the Netherlands and decided last minute to take a trip to Paris. The apartment ticked all the boxes for us. 3 comfortable bedrooms (family of 6), very good bathrooms and superb location. We got lots of tips off the owner who runs a vacation rental business. This made a difference for us as previous experiences with private owners were less favourable. I'd definitely recommend the apartment and James' outfit to friends and family. There are some wonderful cafés and restaurants in the vicinity and the sun was out which made our stay perfect. Merci beacoup!
