We rented 2 apartments #505 and 506 for 4 nights. The website did not show the current condition of the building or the apartments or I never would have booked it. The carpets in the hall were filthy, the paint was peeling off the wall, the wood floor in 1 apt.was black from water damage, the furniture was not the same as the website, there was black mildew on the shower door and on the tile, there was a musty smell in the building and apartments, the faucet handle came off in both apartments, the shower hardware came off when we tried to use it, we were each give 2 small worn towels for a 5 day 4 night stay. The check in arrangement was changed the day of our travel. We were offered a check in at the apartment for and extra $35 Euros. We opted to pick up keys at Short Stay office and leave our luggage to retrieve it later in the day. While we were on route to Paris we were left a message advising we were being given a complimentary check in at the apartment at 3 pm. We didn't receive this and paid a cab to take us to the office where we were told that a person was on their way to the apartment with the keys. We had the cab take us there where we waited outside the building for 30 minutes with our luggage and an infant for the person with keys to arrive. We requested our money back based on the pictures on the website being such a contrast from the building. We explained that we had a person on our group with asthma and the mould was a health concern. We were told that the Short Stay Group had been trying for a year to get the apartment owner to upgrade the building and apartments and they would fix the shower however we could not get our money back. We paid approximately $200 Euros per night tax incl tax. We decided to find another hotel after 2 nights and absorb the loss.
