We had a great visit to Paris and this flat was delightful. It was a bit warm as France was experiencing a heat wave, but the fan was a big help. The croissant and baguette each morning was a nice touch.
We enjoyed being close to the Metro and the area around Place de la République is very vibrant. The Marais is a fun place to visit. As for the apartment we have mixed feelings. On the positive, it was clean and had all the amenities we needed. Everything worked (especially the fans). It was quiet. We did not use the kitchen so I can’t comment on that. The laundry machine worked well. On the negative, the apartment was scorching hot at night and the fans didn’t help all that much. Paris was very hot during our stay. The apartment also looks much bigger in the photos and we felt cramped for a family of four. The beds are also very small and the bed linen could be better (softer linens and pillow covers please). Finally it is a bit of a hassle to get into and out of as there are a lot of doors and codes (the key fob did not work).
The owner was accommodating and there is a great binder of information about restaurants and other shops in the area. Thank you for suggesting Season, as our daughter is Celiac and they had great gluten-free food. We went there three times.
I hope this doesn’t come across as too negative as we did enjoy our stay, but there were a number of small “comfort factors” that were missing. It’s unfortunate that it was so hot and I know that Parisian apartments do not have AC as a rule, but in the future I would stay in a hotel with AC if I was to return in the summer. The apartment was just fine and would be especially good if you were to need a kitchen but we didn’t use it so that part was not part of our experience.
