“Home away from Home”
Reviewed January 3, 2012

I have stayed in two apartments through Special Apartments and each one has been in a fantastic location and been very comfortable. They each have been in the Marais district, close to transport and to all of the wonderful attractions Paris has to offer. The photos of the apartments on the website are very accurate. All of the staff I have dealt with at Special Apartments have been excellent and have made my stays very stress free.
I would recommend this service to anyone going to Paris. The information booklet left in the apartments is very helpful with tips on restaurants, travel, places to see etc.
Keep up the good work and look forward to using your services again in the future.

I was a little concerned booking an apartment on line but our experience with Special Apartments was excellent. The business is is a very professional operation. As previously mentioned by other reviewers the staff "go the extra mile".
We stayed in apartment 41 on the Ile Citi, next to Notre Dam, very "Parisian" in a great location and exactly as described. Photos truly represent the apartment..Very very clean
and lots of character. Cafe downstairs and a bakery just down the street for the mandatory french rolls and pastries for breakfast . Supermarkets close by and numerous restaurants to choose from. Busy during the day and peaceful and safe at night.. Strolling the streets and along the river whilst the Bells of the Cathedral ring in the early evening really completes the French experience.
I highly recommend Special Apartments.
Congratulations to Regis and his Staff for making our stay in Paris so memorable.

We had a fabulous stay with Special Apartments. I accidently booked apartment No 8 not realizing there was no lift and I have a knee problem so stairs are a drama for me.
I was dismayed but was it not a problem. We rang Regis he met us there and immediately found two other apartments with a lift for us to choose from. We felt this amazing service when it was our fault.
We actually stayed in apt 8 for the first night it is a great apartment in a fantastic spot to enjoy the Montorgueil area with many cafes shops and restaurants. However next day when apartment 41 was available we then moved there. This apt is amazing 2 doors from Notre Dame it felt as if we were actually living life as a local. The apt has everything you could need including a comfortable bed, sofa, great kitchen all looking out to a very quiet courtyard. You look out of kitchen window and can see Notre Dame towers. The bells ring from 8am every day but this was not intrusive.
The service we received from Special Apartments from booking to leaving Paris was excellent. We have booked their apartments for other family members
who were equally impressed. Could not believe the day we arrived Geraldine arrived with a new shower curtain as they thought the one there was marked it looked fine to us.
We are coming back next year and will be booking with Special Apartments again such a professional team.

Firstly, the staff at Special Apartments were fantastic! They were attentive & really quite lovely to deal with. We found them by doing a search on Google & we were immediately drawn to the number of gorgeous apartments they had on offer.

After such a long haul flight, it was great knowing that the apartment was so easy to get to by airport shuttle (bus stop located on the actual street of the apartment) or by Metro/RER.

The apartment we stayed at was off Avenue Carnot which was 2mins walk from the nearest Metro/RER. But the icing on the cake: being able to see Arc de Triomphe from our room & being able to walk to Champs Elysees & its surrounds very easily. The apartment was surrounded by fantastic quaint cafes, restaurants, boulangeries & there is even a Monoprix within a short walking distance. There was a lift in the building so it was easy to access our room with so much luggage!

The apartment itself was well maintained & as it was managed by La Regence Hotel next door, the rooms were serviced regularly & they even folded our clothes for us!

What would make us come back? EVERYTHING! The price we paid was just right, the size & style of the room was elegant, the location is a definite plus & the fact that it was so easy to book!

See you guys soon! We look forward to your other apartments in other cities!

We stayed in an apartment for 8 days in a ' Special Apartment' on the rue du vertbois. The apartment was very comfortable and close to transport and the centre of the city. I couldn't recommend it highly enough. We also found the service from Regis, John and Darryl to be very thorough.

We (family with two kids) stayed three days at appartment 008 and loved it!! Very quiet, intimate, courtyard in a side street rue Saint Sauveur with lovely restaurants , bakeries etc. this is the perfect place to fully enjoy Paris as you will feel the Parisian grandeur of the appartment and its surroundings so much better than being in some fancy hotel. I would go back any time!!! Close to the metro /subway and walking distance to the Louvre. Brilliant!!!

Room Tip: Two double beds.

This is a fabulous way to live in luxury, save money and experience Paris as a short-term "insider." Through November, I stayed in three different "Special Apartments" -- in Ile St Louis, near Pompidou Center, and near Opera/Quatre Septembre. All were fantastic -- from the swanky furnishings to the appliances, I was wowwed. So were my well-heeled Parisian friends whenever I had them over for soirees. All three apartments were beautifully-appointed, with lovely salons, nice art, great beds, washer/dryers, and one had dishwasher to boot. The kitchens were modern -- and cooking at home saved me a bundle -- and the apartments located near major attractions. Customer service was likewise exceptional. Take a bow, Special Apartments. A very classy enterprise whose apartments I highly recommend.
