My family of five arrived in Paris for the first time and was met by Claire, a gracious host who welcomed us and provided detailed information on how to maneuver Paris' subway and bus system. The flat itself was a cozy 5 room apartment with two full beds and a private courtyard. There was plenty of room for all of us. By Paris'standards it was updated and centrally located. The one main down fall for US travellers is there is no central a/c or screens on any windows which left me a bit paronoid as to what could have flown in.
The four story walk up offers a shared pool table and sauna downstairs which the kids loved. It's a bit musty probably due to lack of circulation but nice to have additional amenities and a good way to meet fellow guests.
There is maid service offered but not daily. We stayed 5 days and was visited once which unfortunetly we missed due to an early arrival so be prepared to tidy up if travelling with kids.
Neighborhood was quite lovely, off the main road. It was clean and close to dining and metro. We enjoyed our time in Paris and will probably visit again but in spring or fall.
As with all of the other reviews you read, Claire is a fantastic host - very kind, helpful and friendly. We were very well looked after.
We arrived around 7.30pm to 13 Rue Beaunier (via taxi from the airport - €55 fixed price) to a warm welcome from Claire’s son who showed us around the apartment which was spotlessly clean, more than adequately equipped and comfortable.
As well as being a relaxing and fun place to reside, it’s location is fantastic - there are various supermarkets, bakeries and restaurants within 3-5 minutes walk, and the metro station is really close taking you into District 1 in around 10-15 mins (we paid €7.50 for a zone 1&2 daily travel card).
We fell in love with Paris and are already planning our next visit - I shall definitely want to stay at 13 Rue Beaunier again. Highly recommended!!
My family of 4 really enjoyed this apartment. It was great to have the space to spread out and the patio was a great (and it felt larger than the picture seemed). There was also a parking space in a nearby garage. The condo is an easy walk to public transportation and we felt really safe walking home from the metro late in the evenings. The owners were very accommodating and having access to laundry at the end of our trip was a bonus.
A lovely, spacious apartment which slept 5 of us very comfortably (2 adults and 3 children). The outdoor garden was an added bonus for relaxing after a day of sightseeing in Paris. Buses and the Metro into the tourist sites were close by and frequent also supermarkets and an attractive park were handy too. In addition we had free, secure parking included. The owner was very helpful before our stay. We would definitely recommend this apartment.
Would like to start by saying massive thanks to Claire, she was fantastic at communication throughout the entire run up to the stay aswell as during.
The apartment itself is the perfect stay for a getaway, extremely spacious for 4 people and it has everything you could need. The hot tub is what sold it to me and I was not disappointed, absolutely lovely to use after a long hot sweaty day in Paris.
The location was also perfect, not in a busy area of Paris so the prices within the nearby supermarkets arent outrageous (theres a Lidl close by if you want something similar to the UK). It was very quiet at night and the only noise issue was the dustbins being collected at 9.30 - we were all out of bed at around 8 every day, however if you are wanting a longer sleep in then be aware of this as it will wake you up.
The downstairs common room was fantastic to use with the speaker system and pool table a great mix. The sauna aswell is an amazing addition - however sadly we didnt have a chance to use this.
There arent really any cons at all, if I was being critical then I would argue the sofa bed is unbearable, I had to sleep head to toe with my friend because I couldnt sleep on the sofa bed. The gym aswell has too much stuff in it.
Needless to say this apartment is still the perfect stay in Paris. I will 100% be back if Im ever in Paris again.
