5 Stars, nearly perfect. Thank you Luc for an enjoyable stay without any problems.
The apartment itself is really great-- a very good use of space, it's comfortable, and an easy walk up a single flight of stairs. The furnishings are nice and it's far better than any hotel you could get for twice this price. The location is great. A perfect home base for exploring on foot. A truly fantastic value!
There are some negatives listed below, but they are really just "things you might want to know" and none make the apartment undesirable IMO. I'd recommend it to anyone unless one of the below things is a huge problem for you.
- there's a bar at street level below the apartment. The bar itself is not loud but it seems to attract a late-night/early morning crowd. Because the apartment is one flight up from the street the noise of patrons coming/going and talking can be really loud. If you are a light sleeper this could be challenging.
- The shower has two easily fixable issues -- there no light in the shower stall so it's super dark. And you have to shower using the hose/nozzle -- because you can't attach it to the wall at a height high enough to stand under. A hook up on the wall would make a big difference.
- The bed is a loft. Some people may not be comfortable going up the spiral stairs to get to bed, and others might find the sleeping space a little tight.
- There are a total of two pillows in the bed with no extras. My wife and I would have slept better with a couple more pillows.
I recently stayed in this studio apartment and found it be perfectly located for my needs: close to metro stations, several bus routes and within easy walking distance of supermarkets, boulangeries, traiteurs, Bon Marche, the Seine and cafes and restaurants, of course. The studio is secure, well-equipped, quiet and in a well-maintained building. Heating is adjustable within the studio, and the bathroom includes the best shower I have experienced in a Paris studio. My only qualms were about the low security of the internet connection. The concierge was very helpful, friendly and approachable. I would happily return to this studio if I were to visit Paris again.
