I agree with the last reviewer on one count: do TAKE EAR PLUGS as the trains do run under this apartment all the time, some trains are louder than others. This did not bother me at all during the day. At night my friend, who was using the VERY COMFORTABLE SOFA BED , slept soundly without ear plugs. Apparently she can sleep through anything!
I slept soundly too, but only because I used good ear plugs. The trick with using earplugs is firstly to ensure you have the ones that cancel out most noise and secondly , if using regularly/frequently,to apply Vaseline to them prior to each use. This way they go in more easily and come out more easily, but more importantly you don't get sore ears. It is important to get them right in , hold until they have fully expanded. If you can still hear any noise you haven't got them in far enough.
In all other respects this is a FABULOUS APARTMENT.It is VERY COMFORTABLE and has good space. It is in the BEST LOCATION for exploring Paris. I have stayed in many apartments in different parts of Paris and this is the best spot.
The company specialapartments.com are the BEST COMPANY TO DEAL WITH.
They make everything so easy and are a pleasure to deal with.
I am surprised none of the reviews for this apartment #007 on their website mention the NOISY TRAINS though, because it is only FAIR that people should know this prior to choosing their apartment.
I would definitely stay here again, WITH MY EARPLUGS.
Although I may be tempted to look for another apartment close by that doesn't have trains running under it..... Then it will probably have some worse problem!
City Apartment living is seldom quiet.
I'll STAY WITH THIS ONE.
THANK YOU "SPECIAL APARTMENTS" and especially Regis and Geraldine who made everything so easy.
PS the bottle of red wine was DELICIOUS and much appreciated! As was the FREE Wifi and FREE International phone calls.
