“Nice apartment, very noisy”
Reviewed 24 February 2016 for a stay in July 2015

I booked this apartment for myself and three guests for our week long stay in Paris.

When we arrived, we had to wait a while for the owner's agent to turn up, and we got anxious about getting hold of him. We'd been travelling for 24 hours + and were running low on battery! Eventually he arrived and we got to the apartment - up five flights of a tiny winding staircase. Not for the faint-hearted or anyone lacking mobility! A definite con for me.

The apartment itself is as shown in the photos - really nicely laid out and great for a self catering stay. It's near lots of shops and such for supplies, and round the corner from the metro.

What isn't mentioned is the noise. I mean: NOISE. The apartment is on the corner of a very busy intersection and when the weather is warm, the windows need to be open for comfort as there are no fans or air con in the apartment. The street noise goes on with cars, busses, lorries and those obnoxiously annoying mopeds and scooters until the very early hours. Being continually exhausted really put a downer on my holiday.

The apartment is in a fairly decent location, but I wouldn't recommend this apartment to you in the summer - in colder months I imagine it would be fine as the doors drown a lot of noise out, but this is unbearable in summer.

I'm surprised that you gave me that 2 out of 5 stars when you criticize the noise of the city and not my apartment. You noticed that the apartment meets the pictures. You even said "The apartment is Itself as shown in the pictures - really nicely laid out and great for a self catering stay" You have chosen an apartment in Paris with a balcony that has a beautiful view angle. This means that overlooks the street and as it is the center of the city, it is normal to hear the street noise when the windows are open. As they are equipped with double glazing, when closed there is no noise. Also on the fifth floor there is less noise than in the first or second. Regarding the delay of the person responsible for the reception, it can happen, but it is rare, it instead passes the time waiting travelers who Souvant much delay. It is stated in the description that helps travelers get your luggage. Do not hesitate to ask. He also pointed to in the description that the apartment is in an old building with no elevator. This is the first time I have such a negative opinion. I'm disappointed because you criticize especially external factors relating to a big city. For those who want who can not stand the noise in the city, I advise them to choose an apartment in the suburbs.

“Picture Perfect Paris”
Reviewed 30 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

When planning our trip to Paris we knew we wanted somewhere authentic, somewhere where you could wake up and know that you are in Paris. A chain hotel was not going to do that so we looked at apartments through tripadvisor. This place looked perfect from the photos and the price was incredible so we didn't hesitate to book.

Now that we have returned from Paris all we can say is WOW! The apartment is much bigger than I expected, and more charming than I can describe. It's on the 5th floor of an old building just on the northern tip of the area away from the tourist track with plenty of local hustle and bustle. The creaky wooden staircase is a real treat for the legs. The kitchen is incredibly well stocked with everything that anyone could possibly need, the bathroom is very sweet, the living room has a sofa and tv and dvd player plus free wifi and then you have the spacious double bedroom. The decoration throughout is so well thought out. We loved all of the details. The wrap around balcony, even in January, was brilliant and I spent a lot of time out there just people watching.

As for the local area - there is a fantastic patisserie over the road that does the best pastries i have ever had, plus some incredible cakes - again the best i've ever had. There is a small bar and cafe on the ground floor, a pizza place around the corner and the tube station is a very short walk along the main round. Sacre Coeur is accessible from the back so you avoid the tourists, but then drop down the other side through the famous lively streets.

When we arrived, Herve greeted us, gave us some tips on the area and took our security deposit of 350 euros. This was in cash, and given back to us on the day of departure in full. It would have been better if there was another way to pay this as we found that we had a lot of euros at the end of our stay that needed to be changed back to GDP but at a cost.

I genuinely believe that our stay in Paris was so good because of this apartment. It set the right feeling from the very start and we were very comfortable there. When we return to Paris in the future we will definitely be staying here again.

“Authentic Slice of Paris”
Reviewed 4 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

If you want to experience the real thing, this apartment is for you.

The guy who meets you is fab, he showed us round the apartment, gave us advise on the best eats, where to get the Metro, where not to go and the quickest way to the Sacre Coeur.

The apartment is situated not far from the Sacre Coeur on a junction of five roads. It has a classic Parisian entrance and a communal hall leading to five flights of stars. My twins counted 91 steps, which was initially daunting but good exercise and we felt we truly earned the croissants every morning! We didn't hear a thing from the adjoining apartments but the street outside was busy with people and cars so we had to keep the french windows closed at night. A fan might have helped because it was hot in August.

Our bedroom was very comfortable and our 9yr old twins managed sleeping on the sofa bed in the living room although space was tight. When they went to bed we used the breakfast room to relax.

Although the kitchen is fully stocked with staples as well as fresh milk and juice (very thoughtful) we ate out each day and sampled the delights of the Boulanger opposite which we heartily recommend.

Points of interest:
-The Metro is only a 5min walk away
-The Sacre Coeur is brilliant in the evening with people performing music and an amazing guy who performs football tricks up a lampost... not joking!
-Get an Art Pass at the airport- it allows you to jump the queue at Le Louvre and Museé D'Orsay but NOT at Versaille, Saint Chapelle and Notre Dame
-only visit the Palais de Versaille on a weekend because only then do they turn the fountains on (we found out the hard way)
-visit The Natural History Museum and check out the skeleton hall- amazing!
-if you book this apartment go straight onto the Eiffel Tower booking website and reserve yourself a place or you will have no hope of going up it

Montmartre is a friendly area and very accommodating. We really enjoyed our stay here and were sad to leave.
