The view is worth the climb
Enjoyed our 5 days in the apartment. I even glimpsed the Sacre Coeur among the chimney pots.
We had a fabulous time!
The apartment is very well situated for accessing tourist sites and the metro. I loved looking out of the window at Notre Dame cathedral in the distance and listening to the music at the café below. The space was clean, well equipped and had all the linens we required. Instructions for location and key were accurate and detailed. The hair dryer and laundry basket were nice to have.
Thank you for a great stay.
Lovely apartment with kitchen in the heart of Paris
Stayed a week in January 2019. Great location near markets, nearby Metro. We chose this for the kitchen and had a great time preparing meals with local ingredients from Maubert market (T, Th, Sat) or Mouffetard St (Sun).
We had to supply many items including toilet paper, paper towels, sponges, cleaning supplies, and soap and shower supplies, so come prepared. Even had to supply some small kitchen utensils, but paid if forward for next renters. We had to sign a strange lease agreement, but was not a big deal. As stated by others, the 5 floor walkup can be a challenge with luggage, but overall, that is part of the charm of staying in central Paris.
Clean, but not many amenities
The property was clean and simple. The stairs were VERY steep, but we expected that from the description and other reviews. However, the rules and instructions were extremely thorough to the point where I felt like the owners were trying to take every measure possible to avoid having to come fix a problem. There were not enough towels or pillows, and even though there were others available in the room, we were not allowed to use them unless we called and asked permission. There was very little hot water. There was not enough toilet paper and we ended up buying more just to make it through one week. The area is home to many university students, so it was loud and raucous outside until 4AM some nights. Overall, it was not a bad spot, but I would not recommend it.
La vue est magnifique mais quand on a des valises l’escalier très étroit est difficile à monter.. il manquait un taie d’oreiller et des tasses pour le petit déjeuner qu’on nous a ramenées ensuite. Le lavabo de la salle de bains était bouché. Je conseille cet appartement pour deux personnes parce que le canapé est vraiment peu confortable. Le quartier est super, proche du métro et des commerces mais bruyant le week-end à cause des bars qui sont en bas.
Lovely Property in the Latin Quarter
My husband and I stayed in this apartment July 2018, during what many considered to be a pretty substantial heat wave. My main concern with this apartment was that, considering it's a penthouse, it may be too hot. In reality, it was wonderful. Multiple fans were provided and sleeping with the windows open made the apartment very comfortable. Also, the apartment is located on a tiny square which houses several cute cafes and restaurants with great food, and was within walking distance of many other sites and neighborhoods (10 minutes to Notre Dame, 20 minutes to the Marais, 10 minutes to Luxembourg Gardens, etc.)
The apartment itself was wonderful - super clean, well-equipped, and stylishly decorated. The bed was king sized, which is large by most European standards, and very comfortable. Did I mention the view? You can see Notre Dame from your window while laying in bed!
Lastly, the host, Jean-Noel, was very responsive. His instructions made checking in a breeze, and when our flight time was pushed back unexpectedly, he very graciously arranged for us to have a late check out so we could continue to enjoy our last day in Paris. Overall, I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
