We were very pleased with our decision to rent an apartment instead of staying in a hotel. The apartment on Rue Guénégaud was comfortable and spacious. Here are some pros and just one con:
The booking process was fast and easy, and Johan answered our questions within an appropriate amount of time. We used the car service he suggested and were very pleased. There is a set of circulars stairs leading to the apartment which were easy for our older knees to negotiate.
David met us at the apartment and explained everything we needed to know. There is also a helpful binder of information that we referred to often.
The location was great! The apartment is just steps from the Seine. We found plenty of cafes and a grocery store close by. We were able to walk to many of our tourist destinations. We felt very safe in the surrounding neighborhood.
The apartment was as represented in the pictures and included a dining table and a large BR closet (plenty of hangers) that were not shown. All of the appliances and heaters worked. The apartment included a washer and drying rack. There was plenty of hot water for showers. One problem was that the shower didn't drain well. It was reported and has probably been fixed.
The only con was that there is a nightclub downstairs that operates Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. Thursday night the music was loud and disturbed our sleep. In preparation for Friday night I discovered a switch that closed a heavy metal shade on the bedroom window. However, the club did not open Friday night, and Saturday night they played a different, quieter style of music that did not bother us at all.
Overall, I would not hesitate to rent this apartment again.
This is a wonderful apartment in a great neighborhood of galleries and cafes, and literally steps from the Seine as the listing indicates. Johan was very helpful in the weeks leading up to our stay with instructions and directions. We arrived early, and so did Johan's assistant to let us in, with the keys and helpful advice for us on the area, restaurants, etc. The apartment was very clean and maintained very well. For the nice weather we had while in Paris, we could open the windows and let the sun and fresh air roll in. The building and location are very safe, and Paris is at your doorstep. The pictures of the apartment on the listing are exactly as it appears. Great place to rent and stay while in Paris. Very reasonable price. Merci Johan!
