Four adults stayed in this apartment. The picture looks bigger than the actual apartment. But with the two bedrooms, it served our trip well. Bathroom and shower area is kind of small and you can see through the glasses, so if you travel with friends. this apartment might not be a good idea. Check-in and check-out process is quick and easy, didn't waste our time at all.
The location is great, a lot of food in the area to choose from. Close to metro and a lot to see in the area. In the internet, it said take a taxi from airport to the apartment would cost around 50 Euro but it ended up cost us over 100 Euro. Lesson learned, don't trust the internet. Our overall experience in this apartment is excellent.

My wife & I travelled to Paris for our honeymoon in September and chose to rent this apartment due to the pricing, amenities offered, and the location.
Emailing with the owner Thierry was excellent and he was very prompt in all his responses and spoke English, making the booking super easy. He is the owner, however there is a company overseeing the booking as well and dealing with them was not an issue.
The location of the apartment was absolutely perfect. We literally walked to ALL of the big sites (with exception of Versailles and Montmartre) and getting too and from the apartment was no issue at all. It was steps from grocery stores and plenty of shops/restaurants (great variety all within a 2-3 minute walk from indian, sushi, italian, french, etc.!). Also a big help was that it was a few steps to the Centre Pompidou which has exhibits, but more importantly for us sold the Paris Museum Pass. Walked right in and picked up our 4 day passes without issue, saving us time and effort trying to find other locations that sold the pass.
The apartment was well appointed and designed very efficiently. It is a small apartment but the way it was setup worked extremely well. Has microwave, 2 stove burners, full sink, dish washer, washing machine/dryer combo, television, dvd player, coffee maker, stereo system, and most importantly high speed wireless internet.
The apartment has many sleeping arrangements from the full bedroom in the back, a secondary bedroom/lounge with a murphy bed and sliding walls for privacy, and then a pull out sofa to sleep two more, bringing the total to 6. I wouldn't recommend trying to squeeze in 6 people into this apartment but it is doable. Great experience with just the two of us, would also work well with a small family.
The apartment was on the European 1st floor (first floor above ground) so one flight of stairs to get to. It was very secured, with pass code entrance, then requiring a wireless fob key to unlock the gate inside of the hallway. The apartment only has 1 wall of windows, but we didn't notice any noise or distractions while sleeping or being in the apartment.
The only negative I would have to have about this apartment was the linens on the bed had stains that looked like mold. I actually took them off the bed and re-washed them myself, but nothing came out. I spoke to Thierry about this and said the linens were actually rented and that he would speak to the rental management to get them replaced.
The rental management team (Paris Interiors) was great. They gave me a time to meet me at the apartment to pick up the keys (which ended up being a few hours after we arrived, so they actually moved up the check in to help me out) were prompt in meeting us and went over all the functions of the apartment thoroughly until we were satisfied. They gave us a checkout time, which also was too late as we had an early flight, and they again accommodated us to checking us out earlier in the morning. Showed up right on time, and got everything completed and helped us check out promptly.
Our $500 security deposit was also immediately refunded to me by the owner upon letting him know of our checkout. One less thing to have to worry about.
Everything went wonderfully on our honeymoon and we would not hesitate to book with Paris Interiors again, nor would we hesitate to rent this lovely little apartment again for our next visit.
