We appreciated the apartment 's own unique charm- which retains the feel of being a personal artist's studio- though it is a bit worn, with ripped upholstery and chipping paint, which may be a concern for young familes, and a toilet that unfortunately does not work as efficiently as one would like. Still we would recommend it to visitors who can enjoy its casual, relaxing space as we did.
The place is not new but kept in such a way that you feel at home. At home I also need to paint a little - but tomorrow....
Parking was possible on the road but we left our car at Park A - Rue de Renne. Booking via http://www.neoparking.com gave us a 66% discount.
The location is fantastic and so easy to get to the airport and the major attractions. The flat is very quiet thanks to overlooking a large graveyard which was a real bonus in a busy city. Fabulous food shops near by and easy to eat really well and use the kitchen rather than eat out which is expensive by comparison.
Our family of 4 stayed 10 nights. There was plenty of room , the kids (10 and 12 ) had their own bedroom . Must mention the beds were very comfortable , unlike some other apartments.
Location is fantastic, close to metro , restaurants, supermarket . We were even able to walk to Sienna although this depends how far can one walk.
Michelle, the lady who greeted us was exceptionally nice and helpful.
We would stay in this apartment again and recommend it highly.
Two negatives: 1) fold out sofa bed in living room is quite uncomfortable with a 5 degree tilt leaving head side lower than feet side. 2) the main negative and reason did not get 5 stars: the toilet is highly inadequate. It has trouble flushing down solid waste. Sometimes it would go, but sometimes it wouldn't go until after it had sat in there for a couple hours. Really not good. If it were my place I would replace the old-fashioned toilet and get one with a modern design.
Michelle checked us in and was very helpful, friendly, and tried her best to get the toilet problem solved.
Our most sincere apologies and thanks for your feedback and repeat business, we really hope to be working with you again!
