About Anne Bousquet-Dreyfus

We have always lived in the 5th Arrondissement. We love art, design, and travelling. We divide our time between the management of an Art and Creation centre and a medical research technology business.

Anne Bousquet-Dreyfus purchased this apartment in 1990

Why Anne Bousquet-Dreyfus chose 13th Arrondissement Gobelins

It is a family apartment that we have recently renovated and where, in a few years, our second daughter will live in.

What makes this apartment unique

Very sunny and very well located in an area which has kept its authenticity. Very Parisian atmosphere. The building was built at the end of the 19th century.

I will start with the good things...

  • 2 of 5

I needed an early check in and the owner sent Carmen at 8:00 AM which was very nice and made my travels far less complicated. Carmen was also on call and very attentive to some issues we had with the heat. As for the apartment, it could use some upkeep. The toilet chamber has old plastic tiles and peeling paint. The shower room is tiny with peeling paint. The closet shown in the bedroom with the twin beds is not there anymore. it is replaced by metal, heavy doored and very noisy cabinets hung very high on a wall that you had to stand on a chair to reach. The kitchen was adequate. The room with the fireplace shown is tiny. The noise was awful. There is a neighbor upstairs ( and I know the owner can't control this but they should not list the apartment as soundproofed). A guitar was played late into the night, every night. There was a party on a Wednesday night with music and noise that lasted until after 3:00 AM. The finale was all of the guests coming down the stairs making even more noise. In spite of the fact that Carmen was very nice, and it was not super expensive, I cannot say that I enjoyed my stay in this apartment.

Wonderful apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the apartment. It is at a great location, close to the Metro and several good restaurants, supermarkets close by too. Quiet building and friendly neighborhood. A lot of space for the three of us, but would have accommodated easily two more people. Checking in and out was easy, too.

Great flat in fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time in this flat. We were a family of 4(2 children of 5 and 7). It was perfectly spacious for us, the beds were very comfortable, the kitchen well equipped and the shower great. Carmen met us and was very friendly and helpful. We loved staying in a flat rather than a hotel and going behind one of the big doors on the street! The location was fantastic for us - great cafes and bakeries all around, very convenient for the metro or you can walk into the main centre if you fancy (our 5 year old managed!). We would definitely stay in the flat if it was available the next time we come to Paris. Thank you very much!

Felt like a true Parisian!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed for two weeks with our two daughters aged 9 and 11. The apartment was exactly as advertised. It was clean and well-maintained. In particular it was wonderful on that first night to have scrupulously clean bed sheets and towels - very comforting when you are in a new city for the first time!

The customer service was excellent. Anne was always promptly responsive to emails, and Carmen was very helpful on our arrival.

I would definitely recommend the property. It was warm, welcoming and homely. Some minor aspects were that many of the other residents in the building seemed to be students and there were a couple of loud all-night parties when we were there - which is why I haven't given it a 5 star rating. But the majority of nights it was quiet and comfortable, and we always felt perfectly safe and at ease.

We loved the convenience of the lift after days spent walking around Paris. We loved the proximity to the metro, the supermarket and rue Mouffetard. We loved visiting the boulangerie everyday for our daily pastries. In short, it gave us the comfort, freedom and flexibility to explore Paris at leisure and begin to feel like real residents in our short stay.

Excellent apartment and neighborhood !

  • 5 of 5

Anne was very helpful in booking the apartment. Carmen met us at the apartment without difficulties and gave us great information about the neighborhood and exploring Paris. The location is conveniently located to grocery stores, outdoor markets (don't miss Rue de Mouftard during the day and at night!) and transportation (Metro, bus, taxis, and bikes from the city bike program Velib). Short walks will get you to hard being
