My husband and I stayed here last month for six days. The apartment is very clean and well kept and the building is secure. The staff was friendly and helpful. The Kitchenette is very small but functional and we saved money by cooking breakfast, having drinking water on hand and preparing snacks. There are grocery stores, fruit stands and wonderful bakeries nearby. We did eat most of our dinners out. There are hotels in this price range so keep in mind one of the things you give up is service. There is no one to help you with directions or tours etc. Unless you enjoy the adventure of finding your way around and don't mind taking the metro, bus or taxi, this is not the place for you. This is not walking distance to any major attractions. Contrary to what the advertisements say, it is well off the beaten track.
When you fly in keep in mind that this is closer to CDG Airport and on the opposite side of the city from the Ory airport. A taxi cab ride from either airport can be $60 plus.
Overall, we enjoyed our stay but the neighborhood was very noisy at night. There are two restaurants on the opposite side of the street that draw crowds. During our stay there was also construction. There were people yelling, singing and racing motor bikes in the streets as late as 2:00 a.m. On the plus side, it was nice to have a little more room than a hotel.
