Amazing view/location, some communication issues
The view from the room can’t be beat. Waking up to the Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower every morning and staring at them lit up at night is pretty magical. The flat is large and showing a bit of its age, but perfectly accommodated our family of 4. The area is quite tourist-y, but so easy to get to most areas and attractions. We contacted them ahead of time to ask about early check-in because our train arrived at noon. They said they would be happy to accommodate that and left instructions on how to get in. When we arrived the key was not where it was supposed to be and we couldn’t get in. We contacted them and were told that for security reasons they had decided not to leave the key - but did not bother messaging us about this change of plans. A friend was sent out with a key to let us in who was supposed to be there in 10-15 minutes (we never saw them). In the meantime we were advised to try to get in when someone came out of the building. We ended up waiting on the street and in the building lobby for almost an hour until a resident took pity on us and let us in. They were quick to apologize for this and kind enough to let us store our bags past checkout time on the day we left. A bit more attention to communication would be an improvement to an otherwise pleasant Parisian stay.
Dear guest, thank you for your review. Few days before, we always ask to all our guests at what time they would like to arrive to organize their entry and even to be able to offer early check in. But when we do not received any answer, it’s more difficult, specially when the arrival day is in August and on Sunday!
We welcome you with a great pleasure
Dazzeling Jewel in the Heart of Paris!
First and foremost... A priceless view of central Paris every day and night at a rate that is affordable to most everyone! Both the Arch de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower right off the penthouse balcony. Unimaginably dazzling! The metro is literally at the doorstep and so is all of Paris. Public transportation is super clean, safe, and reliable -- likely among the best in the world. We cooked in several times and had the essentials to get the job done, somewhat reminding us of our college years. Fun! Plenty of hot water too. It was really, really hot in Paris all week (38/39C), but the windows opened wide throughout the apartment and fans in each bedroom circulated the cool air from the outside in the evenings and mornings. We slept like babies. The washer/dryer was a major plus, as was the lift! We could walk to restaurants, shops, and there are several grocery stores close by. We took a spur of the moment day trip to Honfleur and Omaha Beach and the car rental company is just up the street. This apartment is easy to call home with the conveniences of wifi and cable TV, while retaining an abudance of its original charm and old-world parisian experience. We hope to come back to Triump Lodge some day, and then again and again.
Thank you Sir, it’s with guests like you that we are rewarded for all our efforts and that our work become meaningful! We wish to welcome you again very soon.
Best location ever!
This apartment has the best location, best view, best little wraparound balcony. It's in a lovely old Haussmann building. Metro stops right outside the door. Airport bus stops about a block away. Many restaurants, McDonald's, Starbucks (if you want them they are close by), small markets, it's all within blocks. The issues come with the actual apartment. It is lovely and has a quaint shabby chic charm but it's need some work! the kitchen is okay but we did not cook. The oven must not work because the cord is off and inside the
oven. When we arrived the cleaning person was there and said we could only drop our bags because she had started late. apparently the previous guests left late. We dropped stuff off and went to eat. She was very nice and I felt sorry for her trying to get everything done. Apartment was nice a clean. The apartment has two bedrooms with queen size beds (comfortable and acceptable towels and linens). There is a tiny spot with just a toilet, then a large bath with huge tub.There is another bath with a stand shower but the cold water would not work
and all hot was just too hot. I know that sounds strange but none of us could figure it out. I messaged the owner about it but I never got a responseThe washer/dryer is a real plus. Just google the instructions.TV and internet worked great. Our last night there the person below came up and said that his apartment was flooding. They turned the water off to our apartment. I read another review that said their water was also off. I really believe the place needs some TLC. I called the owner and he just said it was an "event" he had no control over and it was our last night anyway. Very unsympathetic. I get it but I was surprised at how it was handled. We went across the street and got a hotel room because we were flying out the next day and also we needed to use the toilet. I was told I would get a refund of one night but I have not seen that refund. I's a great place, it needs help! Communication was great until I paid everything and then I never got another response. Waiting for my refund...
Overall nice place, comfortable, close to transportation, many restaurants in the area, large, bright and open. We didn't use the kitchen so cannot speak to how well equipped it is. The view is incredible. Open the doors throughout the apartment to the balcony to listen to Paris and people watch. Again, the view is amazing!
The apartment is in need of TLC. Severe water damage in front WC. Tiles popping up in bathroom. Plaster repairs needed to ceiling. Every board on the floor squeaks--they need refinishing (got a splinter in foot from them). The elevator was not working when we arrived (we had to carry our luggage up 5 flights of stairs) but was fixed by the end of the day which was a Sunday. Also, check in/out time seems to be merely a suggestion. The cleaning lady and next guests arrived 2 hours before the checkout time. We really didn't care, but it would have been nice to be notified that they wanted to drop off their luggage before we departed. Felt like we were rushed out of the apartment.
A wonderful location -picture perfect
We spent 4 nights in this lovely apartment. The view is incredible and the location is excellent. Great restaurants very close by. Very easy to get anywhere in the city from this location. The flat is in need of a minor refresh in soft furnishings, floorboards are extremely charming but do squeak loudly in every room and the oven doesn’t work, however for the price and the view, this place is absolutely lovely. The apartment is very clean. Beds are extremely comfortable! General atmosphere feels authentic Parisian and quite comfortable - and then there is the view!!!!
Highly recommended! We would love to return.
Charming apartment...great location...amazing view
Everything written in previous reviews are true! First, the apartment looks great on pics, reality is it’s a bit worn but we found it charming. That’s the only downside If you can call it one. The views - just wow! Amazing. Location- perfect. We had the best time in Paris and coming “home” to this spacious apartment made it one of the best vacations ever. Thanks Jo!
The flat is located at few meters from place de l'Etoile, that is at 5 minutes walking from the famous Champs-Elysees avenue.
