“WE hope some rewamping by next year”
Reviewed 22 July 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I am sorry to say that we were di sappointed. First of all by the entrance, really crappy! Walls are dirty, wall paper has been torn down, hanging miserably and this for four years. Nobody in the building took a few rolls of paper , a pot of glue and some courage and dignity to make a clean hall (especially at 4 th floor!)! Nothing has been done and windows frame in the corridor are really really dusty.

Let's go inside....

The floor and bathroom door are creaking (waking everybody up) and the window has a curtain barely covering two third of it. Enjoy your privacy.

As for hot water you have to be ready to go to the switchboard every now and then to make the water heater working. Otherwise not enough hot water to rince two plates and have a shower.

Now I hope the owner understands that after hoping every time things would go better, we are sharing now our disappointment and frustration. After we came for a vacation, not to accumulate frustrations. We think it is not fair!

As he wrote in his comment, Jean Jacques came to this appartment for 4 years. We supposed he was happy with it the first 3 times !

The apartement is 100% new,

We agree that some points have to be improved in the corridor of the building. But this year the assembly of the owners of the bulding decided to first renovate the lift.
Concerning hot water, Jean Jacques never had this issue the first 3 times he came : maybe he changed his habits ...This apartment is for 4 adults and we never had any issue concerning hot water before.

We really don't understand this type of review, because we try to do our best and ask for feedback after each stay and never had any comment from Jean Jacques. We saddly discover this written review and don't understand why he came back 3 times ...

“Not exactly what we were expecting!”
Reviewed 21 October 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed at this apartment for 4 nights and it was good of the owner to collect us from the station. The kitchen and bathroom were excellent - well up to a good standard and everything worked properly. The location couldn't have been better - right in the centre of the old part of town with lots of good restaurants close at hand. However, we had been expecting an apartment with a separate bedroom. Maybe something got lost in translation! In fact, the 'apartment' was one very large room with a double bed in one corner, and another double bed built over the top accessed by a neat wooden staircase in the room. Getting in/out of the lower bed was rather difficult. The wardrobe/drawers were in the hall. The sofa and armchairs were comfortable and the wifi connection worked well. There was a very powerful street light over the road which lit the room up all night - a blind might be a good idea. Pau is a lovely serene town and well worth a visit.

Thank you for your Review.

The apartment you are describing in this review is Appart In Pau - Gassion 2, just to avoid confusion : it's not the one you are currently reviewing !

The pictures we provide are clear about the fact that the apartment Gassion 1 or Gassion 2 have no separate room.

Concerning the "very powerful street light", it seems you did not find the switch for the electric shutters. Once you close them, the apartment is completely in the dark.

I hope you nevertheless had a pleasant stay in our apartment
Thank you again for your stay.

“Pleasant, clean apartment in central location”
Reviewed 18 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

This Ikea furnished apartment was clean and well-maintained. It was close to the chateau and central Pau. Shopping and restaurants were close and access to the transit system was easy. The owner was helpful and provided transit from the airport for no extra charge.
If you're going to be in Pau, I would strongly recommend staying in the 7 Gassion Street apartment!

“Clean, tidy & great location”
Reviewed 20 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Christian waited to pick us up at Pau station but we couldn't make it on time due to flight delay. However, met next day and were shown round the apartment by him. Everything neat, tidy & clean. Everything explained. Kitchen compact and functional. Bed, linen & pillows comfortable. Décor fine. Wide range of French & some Spanish TV coverage. Neighbours above occasionally a little noisy but manageable. Location is centre of Pau old city. Parking no problem at Place de Verdun 5 mins walk away. Easy to get in/out of Pau from this location. Centrally located for a host of restaurants and walks. The city bus that does a circular route around much of Pau stops just outside. Walking distance to covered markets and to the promenade overlooking the Pyrenees. Great location from which to explore Pau & surrounding area.

“Lovely apartment in the centre of Pau.”
Reviewed 14 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

We were picked up at the airport by Christian who was very friendly and helpful, providing information about the apartment and restaurants nearby. The free bus stopped just outside our building which made it very easy to get around the city. The apartment is just around the corner from the beautiful Chateau of Pau and there are many shops and restaurants within five minutes walk. The apartment was clean and comfortable and was furnished well , with everything needed to make the stay enjoyable . Thank you Christian - we will be returning to your lovely apartment again !
