Spacious and well-located apartment
Overall we enjoyed our stay and the location of this apartment in the Latin Quarter. It is very roomy and had plenty of space for our family of 4. It's in a great location with a bus stop right outside and a short walk to a Metro stop. There are also plenty of restaurants and a small grocery store within walking distance. The kitchen was well stocked and even had some oil and vinegar, tea bags, etc. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit. A note about the W/D - they do very small loads compared to most American appliances, which is fine, but just don't expect to do a huge load. We travel very light (carry on only), so we do laundry frequently while we travel. The dryer was an added bonus as many European apartments don't have them. This one is not a conventional vented dryer, it uses heat and water extraction, so it takes a longer time to dry (2+ hours) anything cotton so plan accordingly. The washer was also not working exactly right and we had to call to be told to hold the door closed tight when we turned it on (then it worked fine). There is also a small safe in the apartment and I appreciated being able to lock up our passports while we were out and about. There is a small elevator, which can fit 2 small suitcases and 1 person, so you may need to make multiple trips depending on how large your bags are or how many you have.
The only reason I am giving this property 4 stars is that when we arrived around 4:30pm the apartment was not ready. Our flight had been delayed and we originally thought we might arrive around 3-3:30pm. When we walked in, there was a heap of dirty sheets and towels, beds were unmade and there was even dirty undergarments in the drawers from the previous occupants. I called and was told that someone would be over in about 20 minutes. More than 45 minutes later, someone came with clean sheets and towels. We were planning to go out and get some groceries anyway. By the time we got back, the beds had been made and the dirty items were removed. Everything seemed clean, but I wiped down the bathrooms and kitchen as it seemed everything had been done in a hurry. The rest of the communication with the property manager had been great so I was surprised not to get a text or call to let us know the apartment wasn't ready yet. Arriving to a dirty apartment after a long flight was not the best first impression.
We loved our stay in this Paris apartment (with our 17 and 20 year old sons). It was roomy and met all of our needs. We didn't have any issues with the stairs. Please note that the elevator is very small, if you are needing to take the elevator.
Wonderful month in Paris
Large two bedroom suited our needs perfectly. We had two couples for two weeks and just us two for the rest. Real Parisian living with all the treats within a few blocks, most a short stroll. Equipment, aging gracefully, worked fine. You cannot beat this location in Paris: Hubbub on B. Saint Michel if you want it, tasty delights at Rue Mouffetard when you need them, and surprisingly quite sleeping overall. We were not focused on the great sights, rather on Parisian lifestyle: La Lutece delivered both. Krystyna and staff were superb to work with. Great stay. Merci.
Great apartment in an amazing location
You really can’t beat this apartment for the price. Good size, comfortable beds and very high quality linens. Good kitchen with all the essentials. Fabulous location with the bus right outside the door and a few minute walk to the subway. We stayed there with two kids (3 and 7) and our nanny. It suited us perfectly and the kids loved the hot chocolate that was provided:) The bathroom and toilet are small but totally adequate.
It was exactly as described:)
Communication with the owner and manager were excellent and quick. We did have a bit of trouble with the heating due to our inexperience with the system:) The elevator was adequate for luggage and the stairs were manageable even for my friend who has a bad hip.
Great apartment to see all of Paris!
The apartment was perfect for my family of four. The elevator worked great for getting our luggage upstairs. The stairs were totally fine (I am not sure why there are complaints about the stairs in some of the reviews???). The beds were really comfortable. The shower and linens provided were above my expectations. Krystyna was a dream to deal with. The apartment looks exactly like the pictures. There is a bus stop literally out the front door. Easy walk to the metro, Notre Dame, Seine, etc. We would definitely stay here again.
Heart of Latin Quarter, 5 minutes to active Rue Mouffetard with open markets, shops, restaurants always open, the Pantheon, Rue St Jacques, St Michel, Jardin du Luxembourg, Jardin des Plantes, Seine, Notre Dame, etc...
