I usually don't take the time to write reviews, but this apartment is special. This was my second visit and I hope to come back soon.
The apartment is very quiet, beautifully furnished, and well equipped. It's centrally located on the left bank. And Bob does does everything he can to make you comfortable, including providing loads of useful information about Paris. A real jewel.
A package you say? Yes, a package I say. There was much more to this experience than an excellent Paris apartment.. I consider safety, access to transport, access to food and of course, the host, Bob.
The apartment is large by Paris standards, very clean, comfortable and with a great kitchen and an excellent bathroom. It is quite secure and the beds are comfortable. The dishwasher is excellent so I did not worry about service item cleanliness at all.
Access to the Metro/RER is a hop skip and a jump and passing quite near the Petit Jacques, an affordable and excellent deli. My morning baguette was a five minute walk. I felt safe in the neighborhood at all hours.
And the bonus is Bob. When there was appearance of a discrepancy in dates, Bob had the solution in hand. Just that kind of guy. Easy to reach, reasonable, knowlegable, multilingual and kind. If there is a tossup between which apartment to take, consider the "Bob" factor as well. I would.
This Paris apartment, in the 5th Arrondissement was ideal for our family’s (husband, son & myself) most recent trip to Paris. For reference, we try to visit France every couple of years. This year, Paris was our home base in France, and we made train trips to Juno Beach, Normandie & London, England.
This apartment was in the ideal location for us. I fell in love with the Luxembourg gardens, during our last Paris stay, and I vowed to find an apartment near it for this visit. This apartment fit my wish list, as the gardens are a short walk away. For me, watching the sun set in the Luxembourg gardens is like heaven on earth. My husband loved the excellent quality of food available very nearby, in the local patisseries, bistros, pizzerias & open-air market. Our son loved the close proximity to the RER Luxembourg station, with its easy connections across the city and beyond.
This apartment is a typical, tiny Parisian residence. It is clean and is located in a well-maintained building. It is on the fourth floor and we chose to walk the pristine wooden stairs, instead of using the elevator, to work off the many French pastries we ate. There is super-fast fibre-optic WIFI and all the appliances we needed during our stay.
In summary, this property is a lovely Parisian apartment. The owner, Bob [--], is most attentive & welcoming. We would not hesitate to recommend or stay in this apartment again.
We LOVED this apartment! It is beautifully laid out and fully stocked for a fun or relaxing vacation. Bob and Jadwiga made sure we knew how things worked. Little touches like converters in the outlets, fans, electric toothbrush with heads left for the guests and welcome drinks on the table were very thoughtful. It was ideally located in a nice neighborhood with easy access to all tourist attractions with bus 21 and 27 stopping just around the corner (get a Paris
Visite online before you go). Bob called us before and during the trip to make sure we didn't need anything. He offered helpful tips which were much appreciated (Uber and G7 taxi filled in where buses and metro were less convenient). Above all, the apartment and building were absolutely gorgeous. I could easily live here and hope to come back soon.
