Good value for location
Great access to all of Paris for the price, but bathroom had water damage and high tub was slippery and dangerous.
Excellent location!!! Cute apartment!
We stayed for a week in May 2019, with myself, 11 yr old daughter and friend. We loved the cute little apartment. It was a perfect size for us three. The location was AMAZING. A market just around the corner, many cafes, bakeries and the Eiffel Tower is just a 5-10 minute walk, with the Siene River right beyond. Many things were actually within about a half hour walk. We walked to the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and many other places, but it is very close to buses and metro stops, which, with Google maps, is VERY easy to navigate.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.
From the very start our experience with Graziella was perfect. Very gracious to answer all my questions and make sure we had all the information we needed to arrange transportation or find our way around the city!! The apartment itself didnt feel small for Paris standards. The windows open up to a view of the courtyard to let a lot of light in!! The roll down shades were great since it doesnt get dark until well after 9pm. Its location is truly less than 5 minutes from the Eiffel Tower. We were very happy with our stay!
Thank you very much Sasha, you too have been a perfect guest!
It is true that the apartment is very pleasant, bright and practical, I am happy that you have had a great holiday !
Great location. Tired apartment.
You are definitely paying for location here. It is in a very convenient location, quiet building just on the edge of the tourist area. The Eiffel Tower is a 10/15 minute walk. Kind and helpful people all around. Mini mart directly across the street, and a grocery store a five minute walk down the street. Restaurants very near in every direction.
Parking available for an additional 10€ per night paid in cash on arrival.
The apartment itself is spacious enough for two ... Maybe a family of up to four, but not good for two traveling couples. There would be no privacy with the bathroom and toilet room setup.
There is NO central AC .... there is a portable unit with an attached exhaust, (stored in a closet) but it is not set up, so you would have to leave a door open to use it, which would defeat the purpose of trying to cool things down. During our stay the high was in the upper 60s low 70s. The sun comes in the windows from morning till dusk, so mid afternoon it did get quite warm. We kept the doors and windows open and utilized the fan to keep it cool. During the evening it was fine with leaving the one living area door open.
The kitchen had matching dishes and small glasses, but the silverware, cooking and storages dishes were a mix of old, well used and abused items ..... half a cutting board, knives that don’t cut, etc. If you don’t plan to spend much time in the kitchen, it may be ok. I prefer to cook in when traveling, so found it a bit disappointing.
The bed seems to possibly have broken or misaligned box spring on the side closest to the door. It lies at a slant when you are lying down. Sleepable, but needs to be checked out. The flooring is some type of indoor/outdoor nylon covering, not carpet. I found wearing my flip flops or shoes was more comfortable. It would do wonders to have a few area rugs to soften things up.
Overall, the apartment was fine. It appears not to have been updated in several years and is due. Things are warn, stained and tired looking.
WiFi worked well. Washer worked good ... American directions for it and the microwave/oven would be helpful. No Dryer. Hanging rack is available. Directions on where or what to do with the trash would have been nice too. Tiny trash can filled quickly, we hated leaving it for the cleaner, but didn’t know where to dispose of it.
Again, the location is great. Not a touristy feel.
Patricia is nice (the woman who meets you) but speaks NO English.
Thanks for the review. In fact, I have to renovate the apartment. The windows have just been changed and I have planned to change the kitchen accessories at the end of November. You're right, it's perfect for a family, but not for 2 couples (in general, I do not recommend it and it hardly ever happens). Thanks for your attention.
Very nice unit, centrally located, great restaurants and markets lose by. Graziella has a book for taxis, restaurants, sites etc for the guest to refer too as well, enjoyed our stay.
Hot, hot, hot
We arrived in Paris in the early afternoon - exactly as arranged. We called the number we were given and there was no answer - only a recording in French that we could not understand. We tried several times, same thing. Then we emailed the host - again no response. We sat in the lobby with our bags for nearly two hours. Eventually we were able to find the phone number of the host who was in another country. She called her friend to let us in and we were finally given access to the apartment. Our host had given us the wrong number to call. It was not the friend's number. So we lost two hours of our vacation.
We were very disappointed with the apartment from the minute we walked in the door. I chose this apartment over my second choice because of the promise of air conditioning - even though this one was 50E more per night. I realize that some places in Paris have poor AC, bu this one had none. When we contacted the owner she said that the portable "AC unit" didn't really blow out cold air or even cool air, but that it refreshed the air. Basically it was a fan - a small one, in a closet. It had a 4" duct to blow the air into the room - so think about a 4" fan. We knew July would be warm, so we purposely sought a place with AC. It was hot when we were there and we were miserable. We couldn't even get the apartment to cool down at night with the windows open. We stayed 6 nights, so I paid 300E extra for nothing.
Also missing - a pillow for the pullout, more than one dish towel, and more than one roll of toilet paper. There was peeling paint in the bathroom. The carpet was uncomfortable to walk on without shoes.
I will not rent this apartment again. Do not rent this apartment in the summer!
Thanks for the review. I apologize to the guest. The guest had booked a few months before and had sent the housekeeping phone number. Meanwhile, the Lady changed the number and I forgot to communicate it.
For mobile air conditioning: the appliance, which has always worked properly, has had some problems this summer, it's true.
I have planned a renovation of the apartment starting from the windows change at the end of August, to better isolate and then paint and move furniture.
I apologize for the inconvenience caused. However the apartment is very well located and very calm and bright and very competitive compared to other apartments located in the same area.
I am available for any other information. Graziella

The apartement is located just a stone's throw from the Champs de Mars, one of the widest greenspace of Paris. All the year long this park is visited by tourists for the most beautiful views on the Eiffel Tower it offers, but also by Parisians. You can find there : Kindergarten, carrousel, Muppet theatre, poney riding, pedal cars… one and a half miles long jogging path, soccer and basketball playgrounds, bike tours… music kiosk, petanque and lawns for throwing down a blanket and resting under the sun, or at dusk enjoying picnic with a view on the glittering Tower.
