Apartment needs thorough cleaning and upgrading

  • 2 of 5

We have enjoyed wonderful experiences renting apartments in cities across France, Italy, Portugal and Spain. Unfortunately, our luck ran out with this one. First, the location indicated on the VRBO web site is not accurate. VRBO shows it to be right at the Pantheon, when it is actually located a 15-minute walk away on rue Broca between blvd. Montparnasse and rue Mouffetard. There is nothing wrong with this location; in fact, it is excellent. But VRBO is to blame for not providing an accurate location.

Worse, however, was the condition of the apartment. In two words--shabby and dirty. Obviously, it had not been occupied for some time, because a layer of dust covered every surface, and the rooms smelled musty. The furniture was falling apart--I had to tighten the bolts in the back of the futon/sofa to keep it from collapsing. And a screw fell out of one of the wooden chairs, leaving the seat loose from the frame. The floor slanted. The bath towels were mismatched and generally threadbare. The kitchen cabinet offered a total of two wine glasses--mismatched and not the same size. The closets and storage spaces were filled with old cleaning supplies and equipment. The bed had no top sheet, and the extra pillows had no covers.

I could go on, and I have to say that we enjoyed our stay, because the rue Mouffetard market area is very charming and interesting. But I will not be renting this apartment again.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights. Everything was perfect. The apartment was very clean, bright, stylish and safe.The beds were very comfortable. There are delicious restaurants. The location is central. There is a famous market nearby allowing us to do cooking when we did not want to eat outside. The building is very charming and the place very calm and quiet. Marina and Philipe provide us with all the information to make our stay enjoyable. We will definitely stay here again and we highly recommend this apartment.

Had a wonderful time; owners were easy to work with, and we discovered a new part of Paris

  • 5 of 5

I was initially apprehensive after realizing that the map shown on VRBO wasn't accurate, however it turned out to be a lovely area to get to know. Rue Mouffetard was a great street to be near; the markets and fresh vegetables, fruits, sausage, cheese, bread, ice cream, etc were just lovely, and provided several delicious picnics. My family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teenagers) stayed 4 nights in July; it was warm, and the street can be noisy, and a fan would have been nice, but it worked out very well for us. The stairs are a trek, but we thought it added to the charm. It's also close enough to the metro to make everything pretty convenient, though the walk to the Seine through the Jardin Des Plantes is lovely as well. We'd happily go back.

Not as advertised

  • 2 of 5

This flat is not in the place it appears on the map! If you plan to visit museums etc on foot choose a different place. It is near a small square St. Medare and is a 30 minute walk from the Seine. One climbs 65 worn wooden spiral steps, slippery and very narrow, to reach the door, making the courtyard not worth using even if it had any seating. The flat is one room with a kitchen made out of the entry way. The kitchen had minimal kitchenware--small undefrosted fridge and a few utensils. No way to cook a real meal. On our arrival the floor was soaking wet. The towels were tiny and very old and stained, as was the one dishrag. There is one bed but the other, a convertible sofa, is impossible to sleep on with metal frame poking through thin foam. The lady who let us in didn't introduce herself but seemed very nervous and we had to pay our balance in cash ( deposit was by PayPal). The street has a very noisy nightclub but we left the windows open anyway as it was very stuffy otherwise--the fan the owner said was in the cupboard could not be found. There is plaster falling from the bathroom ceiling, and the shower is too small to turn around in. Phillippe took a few days to reply during our stay, then had an excuse for each of our concerns -- and we never met him. Would not recommend unless you can't find anything else.

Owner's Response: I have no control of the localization of the apartment on Google map. Indeed, the studio is located a little bit further south in the 5th district. It is 15 minutes walking from the Seine and close to the metro station Censier-Daubenton and to the Pantheon. The spiral stairs (wooden and charming) is the one of a picturesque building (XVIII century) of the heart of Paris. Nevertheless the apartment is completely modern and equipped with everything to cook. The bed and the sofa bed are of high quality and were changed 10 months ago. The towels were new too. There is absolutely no nightclub in the street which is little and quiet ! There are very few nightclubs in the 5th district where there are especially universities, schools, monuments, gardens, typical restaurants and cafes, shops and markets. The floor was slightly wet because it has just been cleaned. The guests had to arrive at the end of the day afternoon but they called me to check-in much earlier. I accepted to please them, that the reason why the floor was still wet. The lady was my wife who is always very polite and helpful. Actually, I had and I have an honest answer to all these surprising assertions !

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for the flat. It worked out well and cetainly contributed to a lifetime of wonderful memories!

We got to see and do everything that we had set out to do! Location is in walking distance of a lot. We took an uber to the rest.

I found Phillipe to be fair and honest, and everything was as he said it would be.

Happy with my experience.

My husband and I spent 6 nights. The apartment was clear, very clean and well equipped. The bedding was quite comfortable. It is also well located and in a safe and quiet area. The proximity to the many major sites and gardens is perfect for exploring Paris. The apartment is well served by the public transportation(metro, bus, RER). Nearby the apartment, there is the Mouffetard quarter with so good bakeries,butcher's shops, cheese markers, wine merchants. The area is full of typical french restaurants and cafes. Philippe and Marine were extremely helful with recommandations on where to go, how to get there and where to eat and drink. When we booked we were worried about bedbugs because of the previous reviews. Philippe certified that the problem was solved and he told the truth. There was absolutely no bedbug. We plan to return to Paris this winter and we would definitely stay here again and recommand the apartment to our family and friends.
