The apartment was as advertised and depicted in the pictures. The apartment had the feel of a hotel and not of a place where the owner moved out for a few days. The unit was updated, bathrooms were great, and it had all the amenities needed for our stay in Paris. The apartment was comfortable for six adults. We would recommend the apartment to our friends.
The area was fantastic. Restaurants, shops, museums, train, subway, grocery store, you name it, was all within walking distance from the apartment. The location could not have been better. Going to the grocery store made you feel like a local.
As visitors in a foreign country we followed the tips and memorized and quizzed each other on phrases from Rick Steves French Phrase Book & Dictionary. We got some incredulous looks and some laughs from the Parisians at our attempts at the French language. The people could not have been nicer!
The best part of our vacation was observing the historical sights and immersing ourselves in the French culture. The French are proud people and we are gracious for the hospitality that they extended to us.
great location. safe, roomy, nearby restaurants
easy access to 2 metro stations. grocery, bars and restaurants very close. clean. warm. 3rd floor access difficult for older guests with large suitcases. Zoe (property manager) very helpful and easy check in
Great location, clean and comfortable! This is a perfect spot for couples or girl's trip. Centrally located to all the sites, shopping and great restaurants. Enjoyed working with Pad A Terre...will definitely go back! Thank you for making our trip so comfortable!
Great apartment in the best neighbourhood
Our stay in Paris was everything we expected. Our experience with Jame's company Pad A Terre was flawless from first contact, communication, arrival and check out. The apartment is very comfortable, outstanding bathrooms and the beds, the best I've slept in in a hotel. Old feature likes beams add what to us felt like Parisisan charm. Our first vacation rental we won't look back. The apartment was full for our last night so we checked into a nearby hotel on James' advice and whilst it was ok, rooms were small and it cost us much more. You couldn't be better located here - the Louvre is literally a block away. When we come back to Paris we won't hesitate to use the services of James' company again. Thank your from all 6 of us!
Okay, not great.
The apartment is just okay. There is no where to put things in the bedroom. No table. No bureau. There is no elevator which makes the narrow, winding stairs to 3rd floor difficult.
Thank you for your review. All bedrooms have storage space so I did not fully understand your comment on that front. As for tables, the dining room table seats 12 if you extend it. We are clear about there being no lift in this building. Lifts in this area next to the Louvre all as good as non existent. That is the price you pay for being in the historic centre of Paris and furthermore in a 17th century building - they don't lend themselves to lifts and often, being protected building, you are not allowed to put them in. As a registered French company ensure that everything is clear regarding what guests can expect and normally we succeed on that front. All guests do sign rental agreement contracts that specifically details the spec of the property, including the fact there is not a lift. I am unsure as to whether you read this before signing but had a lift been very important to you we could have directed you to another property.
Founder & CEO Pad A Terre since 1999
This apartment was a perfect location to all the sites that we wanted to see and fit our needs perfectly! James was extremely helpful with suggesting a car service and with our various requests prior and during! The agent, Zoe, who let us into the apartment did stay until we arrived as we were later than we anticipated and was great in pointing out groceries, restaurant and the general neighborhood for us! We had a wonderful time. Thank you so much James and Zoe!
