Amazing, Huge, Well-Appointed Flat

  • 5 of 5

This flat was a wonderful experience from the first moment we arrived. Nicolette was so helpful, walking us through the place and showing us all the features (including the very unusual dishwasher and washing machine). We also really appreciated the security of the flat as two women traveling alone- it's a fortress. The fact that each of the bedrooms has an en-suite shower was amazing. One pro tip- there are a ton of individual radiators that all have to be adjusted individually- it was hot the first evening until we figured it out.

The Opera neighborhood is very central, and it was easy to get Ubers around the City from there.

It's wonderful all around- well worth the money.

Very lovely apartment

  • 3 of 5

The flat is elegant, spacious and comfortable, with many lovely features and beautiful furniture - however there is no AC and with the very warm weather in Paris - it made sleeping very uncomfortable and nigh on impossible.

The girl who met to show us into the apartment was very irritated by our later than expected arrival - despite us calling the owners twice about flight delay and traffic - she was barely courteous! Very off putting at the start of our vacation.

I would book again but only in December!

Owner's Response: Bonjour Susan, merci beaucoup for taking the time to submit a review. We are glad to know you enjoyed the elegant decorations, spaciousness and location of the apartment. We would like to apologize for the welcome you received and we have taken the necessary steps to ensure that all future guests receive a warm welcome, regardless of what hour our guests arrive. As indicated on the listing, there is no air conditioning, a rare luxury in Paris, as it is not often warm enough in the city to justify installing one. Fans are provided for each bedroom to help guests stay cool. We hope you'll be in touch for a future visit, perhaps when the weather is a little cooler so you can fully enjoy the flat and benefit from a special rate for your second stay.

Elegant and Central

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was lovely, large, and centrally located, as described. The neighborhood was good, with many amenities nearby.

The lift also was as described, small, barely large enough for one person, and a little insecure for sending bags up alone.

The apartment offered some beautiful antique furniture and high-end kitchen equipment and utensils.

The arrangement of the bathrooms was a little strange. We were a single couple, so the single toilet was adequate; if we were two couples using the two bedrooms, that could have been awkward.

The customer service could have been better. We needed some assistance with our bags and the elevator, but the management representative was in too much of a hurry to adequately help us.

I would recommend this apartment for its style, location, and size.

We strongly recommend the restaurant around the corner, Aux Lyonnaise. It is superb in service and food.

Owner's Response: Loraine, thank you very much for taking the time to submit a review. We are glad you enjoyed the apartment as well as its location. The lift i small but adequate and safe for transporting luggages up to the second floor. It is very common in France for the "bathroom" to only contain a shower and sink, and to have the toilet in a separate water closet, as is the case in this apartment. Unfortunately the way the plumbing situation is set up, it is not possible to add an additional toilet in the apartment. Past guests, even when traveling in a group of four, have not found this to be a big issue and are very pleased to have the showers en-suite to both bedrooms. We apologize if you found that the customer service did not meet our own high standard. We will be sure to take more time to help our future guests transport their luggages up to the apartment and feel at home during their check-in appointment. We hope you will give us another opportunity to host you in this flat or one of our many other apartments on a future visit to Paris and would be happy to give you a discounted rate for returning guests. Merci beaucoup!

A real Parisienne experience!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is stunning, exactly as described in the listing and as shown in the photos. It is located on a quiet side street in Paris, with a wonderful private interior courtyard, yet incredibly close to all the amazing sites such as Opera Garnier, the Louvre, and Galleries Lafayette and Printemps. It truly provided an amazing Parisienne experience for our family! We would stay here again in a heartbeat. What we loved the most about this place was that it had a lot of character - tons of art and interesting decoration throughout so it feels like somebody's home, warm and inviting.

beautiful flat

  • 5 of 5

The place is perfect for Paris's lovers like us. Walking distance from shops, restaurants, and attractions within The Opera surrounding. Inside the building it's very calm, at night is quiet and silence. The apartment is very well furnished with an amazing kitchen full equipped. For those who are driving it's not so difficult to find a spot on the street, which is good to save money and time. Lot of space makes the place perfect to stay - we were not lucky with the weather so it was important to be comfortable inside the apartment. All the stuff inside is absolutely high-end. I would definitely come again next time in Paris.

Real Parisian Living

  • 5 of 5

I don’t normally write comments but I really had a great experience. From the very beginning of the booking process the communication with the managers of this property was very smoothy and propmpt. He was very resposive and kind. The apartment was clean and spotless, all new appliances in the kitchen and cooking utensils which was great as we spent a few nights cooking in the apartment.

It was also close to the metro and in fact close enough to walk to the places we wanted to go.

I am so grateful for this stay! Was I would stay again and can recommend booking with you! Thanks.
