We stayed for 5 nights in these appartments from the 13th of June this year.
We were given the wrong street number to stand outside of (142) when the entrance is actually 136.
142 is a "Health/Spice" shop and NOWHERE (entrance/walls etc) is there any mention of Short Stay Appts) The poor spice man was also helpful, but no English and we had no French.
We rang and informed the units early morning from London and arriving in Paris, that we were coming.
After 3 hours of standing out the front (wrong entrance) a girl FINALLY appeared from her other (photographic) job from the other side of Paris to let us in.
This was after a kind receptionist across the road (Best Western)took it upon herself to track down our rep from these appartments.
If not for her we would still be standing there !!!
Also, as it was around 5pm... with bags, where do you get nearby accommodation on the spur of the moments ?? I had a bus pick up next morning out the front of 142...
Then she took us to our room .. AT THE TOP 6 STORIES UP..
We are both over 60 and getting up and down that 'light house' type staircase was all too much.
After asking her, the girl took 10% off our rent (Should have asked for 50% !!!).
ALL IN ALL.... NO !! Dont stay there.. OK if you are young, but if older DO NOT stay above 3rd level.
Plus, as stated above, the arrival book in was completely beyond discription (even though I have tried to..) Use the Best Western across the road, they were brilliant.
The girl from our booking could not have cared a less as to what we had been through.
In 60 nights various accom from UK/EUROPE/GREECE this was the worst experience of our trip.
Hope this info awares the unwary.
