The apartment looked exactly like the photos. The beds were comfortable, the shower had a lot of water, and the place had plenty of hot water overall. The heating was excellent. The kitchen had a good enough amount of supplies to heat up food we bought at the nearby markets, as well as an electric kettle and a microwave/convection oven (look it up on Ikea.com for instructions). The darkening curtains and wooden shutters blocked out the street noise and street lights well.
Great location, near the Metro, rue Deguerre shopping, plenty of cafes, open street markets nearby.
The Halldis staff was extremely responsive from my first inquiry about the apartment, through check out. They let us check in early, since we landed early in the am. Paola did a great job working with us.
Only downside, and I'm not sure if this is because the apartment may not have been used in a while, was two nightstand lamps (or the outlets, not sure) did not work, and the cooktop glass appeared to be broken, but it still worked. The beautiful overhead light in the living area was out, so was the overhead bathroom light. It's dark most of the day in the winter in Paris and the place was super dark in the am and pm. That did put a damper on my stay, as I really need light, especially in the winter. Otherwise, I recommend staying here.
We found a very well furnished, clean, organized and warm apartment in a lively district.
Everything you need was there. The kitchen was perfect and you could cook whatever you want.
Also the guidebooks were very well chosen.
Thank you Messieur Delabre and thank you Odette.
