One of the best places I've rented anywhere in Europe. The location is wonderful -- right by the Tower and a Metro stop. The neighborhood has lots of restaurants, grocery stores, and cafes. And the apartment had everything we needed. Even street noise seemed minimal for an apartment only one story up. Wim was helpful and friendly in person as well as by email. The apartment might be a bit cozy for 6, but for smaller groups it's a terrific place. I'd gladly stay there again.
Apartment is ideally located a mere 300 meters from Eiffel Tower. Metro is very close by as well. Apartment was clean and tidy but had paint peeling from walls. Was told this was due to a leak. It does not have a dryer so this was a problem. The shower rose is not wall mounted so this was another issue. We were told there were double beds but it turned out we had to push 2 single beds together,not very successfully. Apartment was advertised that it had a lift available but was told not to use it as it was malfunctioning. Convenience stores, resturants,patisserie,butcher all very close by. Apartment served its purpose but we were a bit disappointed with what we got. Value for money 6 out of 10. Location is its selling factor
We stayed for two nights as a family of 5 in the apartment. The location is fantastic and such a short walk to the Champ de mars and Eiffel Tower. It was so easy just to nip out for photo opportunities at sunset and the Eiffel Tower twinkles on the hour at nighttime, which was easily seen from the apartment too. The fans in each room were very welcome as it was hot during our visit. Very close to local amenities. There is a smaller grocery shop just a short stroll away and a Carrefour supermarket with more everyday items/toiletries etc closeby near the Metro. We ate croissants and Pain au chocolat for breakfast each morning from a local Boulangerie. We were glad to have wifi available too. Perfect location to explore from and highly recommended!
This was our first vacation in which we rented an apartment, and it was an excellent experience. The owners were great to work with. The location of the apartment is fantastic - close to metro stations and restaurants and walking distance to a few attractions. Everything else is a short metro ride away. One of the things we liked most was proximity to food shops. After being tourists all day, we usually wanted to just relax and eat in the apartment. So we would go buy wine, cheese, bread and fruit, take it back to the apartment, open the windows and enjoy our meal. It was wonderful.
