“Great Stay”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Four of us - two adults and two teenagers - stayed here for five nights. The apartment was just as advertised with all amenities listed. Berit responded promptly to our inquiries and was good to work with. Our flight was a little early and there were no lines at customs or the cab stand. This put us at the apartment prior to when Berit had anticipated and the maid was still there. We were able to leave our luggage and explore the neighborhood until she finished cleaning. Berit came later and gave us a good, thorough explanation of the amenities, the building and the neighborhood.

The location was fabulous! The apartment is on the second floor of a building that faces a pedestrian only area that is filled with everything you want and need - a bakery, supermarket and tons of restaurants, shops and bars. As an FYI - taxis will not be able to drop you off or pick you up right outside of the apartment. You will have to walk a block or so. It is also near major bus and metro lines and is only a couple of blocks from Notre Dame. When you open the front windows there is a significant amount of noise from the lively street scene below, but it is surprisingly quiet when the windows are shut.

It has a full kitchen, including an american coffee maker. There is no air conditioning, but the windows plus an oscillating fan worked well for the one 90 degree day we had. There is one machine that works as both a washer and a dryer. You will need Berit to explain exactly how to use it. It works well on small loads of laundry.

The apartment was spacious. There is one bedroom with a comfortable king sized bed. There is a pull out sofa in the living room. Berit also provided a very suitable inflatable mattress so that our teenagers did not have to share a bed. The bathroom is in the back of the apartment and can only be accessed by walking through the bedroom. The bathroom consisted of two rooms. One had the toilet, a sink and a shower. The other was larger and had a tub/shower and a sink. The toilet would tend to run after flushing and the light switches were a bit difficult to figure out at first, but the water pressure was good.

Some supplies are hit and miss, based upon what the last person left behind. We had coffee filters and laundry detergent, but no paper towels and only one roll of toilet paper. The markets are close, though, and we stocked up on what we needed and left some things behind for the next guests.

The internet, cable tv and local phone all went out after our first day there. Berit was unable to get them fixed prior to our departure so she graciously offered us a credit to help make up for the inconvenience. Free wi-fi is hard to find in Paris. The credit and our deposit were promptly returned through PayPal only days after our departure.

We enjoyed our stay very much and I would not hesitate to recommend this apartment!

“Incredible Vacation Stay”
Reviewed April 26, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

A lovely comfortable apartment around the corner from Centre Pompidou. It is located on a bustling pedestrian only street in a charming neighborhood, but just around the corner from Chatelet-Les Halles metro. Central for walking to most locations too. The tall windows in the salon open offering a window seat with great people watching, but keep it quiet & peaceful when closed. Everything worked well, even the washer/dryer with a little experimentation. A great spot for 1-4 travelers to feel like locals, good restaurants, great shopping, amazing boulangerie and even a little nightlife. Comfortable king sized bed was a bonus & Berit really went out of her way to be helpful.

“Lovely flat at the heart of the city”
Reviewed December 28, 2014 for a stay in December 2014
6
people found this review helpful

I really couldn't fault this flat; it was well-maintained, clean and comfortable and had everything you could need for a short stay. The rooms were so well proportioned that I wish I could live there. It had exposed beams and sculpture decoration and was so full of character. Right next to the Centre Pompidou, you would expect the area to be noisy at night, but this wasn't the case - I couldn't believe how quiet it was, and the area felt safe (though I am a city dweller). The flat's owner, Berit, was lovely and helpful - she went through everything before she left, making sure the wifi and tv were working, and sent tips via email. She even arranged to meet us a little early, and because there was no one booked in straight after us, she let us leave our luggage there until it was time to catch our train. I would definitely stay here again!

“Fantastic location, large apartment, great place to stay”

people found this review helpful

Stayed as 2 adults, 2 kids (7 and 9) for 8 nights. Berit was fantastic and helpfully answered our questions and supplied information when asked.
Large apartment and living space. Sofa bed and bed were comfortable. Bathrooms were fine - 2 showers, one toilet. Kitchen was ok though we didn't cook. Washing machine worked well. Lighting in bedroom was a bit dark.
Location was great. Close to Pompidou and eating areas. Easy to walk to Notre Dame, river, shopping precincts and train stations. Supermarkets not far away so easy to bring supplies back.
Area is pretty hip - lots of activity around Pompidou and nearby restaurants. so people generally stay out late.

“Fabulous apartment in central Paris”
Reviewed August 30, 2014 for a stay in August 2014
2
people found this review helpful

This spacious 1 bedroom apartment has so much going for it that is excellent value for money for any individual or small group or family looking for a central location for residence in Paris.

1. Steps away from the Centre Pompidou esplanade, a couple of minutes walk from a metro station, about 7-8 mins walk to the river and Ile de la Cite, about 5 mins walk to Les Halles, 20 mins walk to Place des Vosges and a little farther to the Bastille.
2. Located in the middle of cheerful and bustling street life with cafes and shops around, but when the windows are closed there are no noises intruding in the flat. We slept very well. Being mins away from the quaint twisting lanes of the Marais, we had some very good dining experiences. Search out the tiny St Catherine's square - off the beaten track - for the restaurants surrounding it!
3. A lovely spacious living area with lots of light, wall sculptures (which lend the place real character), a small bar area and a modern & thoughtfully stocked kitchenette. There was WiFi, a TV and DVD player (which we didn't use). The bedroom has a bed that is very large by Parisian standards and ample cupboard space. There is a single bathroom but the fact that the washbasin and a bath tub are separated from the WC+shower stall area allowed our family of 4 to get ready in the mornings without the heated arguments usual for us in hotel rooms!
4. Located up a small flight of stairs on the 1st floor, so no extensive flights of stairs to climb.
5. Berit is a friendly and helpful hostess (we didn't get to meet her as she was away on vacation but she got her housekeeper to hand over the flat key on our arrival). She was consistently prompt with her replies to our emails.

Our 16 and 11 year old sons shared the sofa bed in the living room and slept very well. However the sofa bed size is not large and I would say that if one or both of them had been older or larger they would have found the bed cramped.

On the whole the apartment was the key to a wonderful vacation that our family had in Paris. It will definitely be on the top of our list if we visit Paris again.

“Absolutely Faabulous”
Reviewed July 1, 2014 for a stay in June 2014
4
people found this review helpful

The apartment is in a perfect location to all amenities and nightlife in the Marais, literally around the corner from the Pompidou centre. You can open the French doors to let the ambiance filter through, sit on the window seat and watch the world go by. But once you close the windows, you can hear a pin drop. The very large bedroom is at the back of the apartment with the bathroom behind with a large bath. There is also a separate shower and toilet in an adjoining room. The wardrobe needs a little TLC as the hinges are not really that strong.
Do not get disappointed when you go through the main entrance and find a dusty and peeling plaster around the stairwell - it is in need of total revamp which I am sure will happen in the near future. Being on the first floor was a bonus as there is no lift.
We were very happy staying there and would highly recommend it to anyone.
