About this listing
Unique 40 (website hidden) one bedroom apartment for rent in Paris, located on the fifth floor of a historical building (with elevator) just by the place Vendôme, in the heart of the city.
Well designed and newly refurbished in Spring 2006 with a classic style, the apartment offers a welcoming and cosy environment, ideal for feeling right at home, with the added bonus of being in an area regarded as one of the most prestigious in Paris.
The entrance to the apartment opens up on a large living room with two large windows with southern exposure which fill the room with light and overlook the silent courtyard. The sitting area offers a large convertible sofa bed (140x180), a matching ottoman and a glass coffee table, whilst the dining area offers a table for 4/6 people with matching cupboards, in front of the open plan kitchen, fully equipped with all necessities including a microwave oven.
The bedroom, with the same parquet flooring, colour scheme and southern exposure as the living area, offers a large double bed (160x190), a closet with sliding doors and a comfortable en-suite bathroom with a shower with hydro massage, a basin, a bidet and a toilet.
The apartment is located in a very silent and peaceful street, allowing for very relaxing and pleasant stays.
Guests have access to the entire apartment, and have full use of the kitchen. Sheets and towels are provided for free.

This part of Paris has nearly no equivalent when speaking about location and proximity of centers of interest. Right in the 1st arrondissement, in between the "place de la Concorde" the Opera and the Louvre, the apartment is surrounded by History.
Here culture meets the business sector. The area is ideally located for work as many companies and banks are based there or within a short distance. Four of the best hotels in Paris are right nearby, the Crillon, the Ritz, the Meurice and the trendier Hotel Costes.
Already very important during the three centuries before the French Revolution in 1789, this part of Paris has always developed and evolved. In the 16th and 17th century the "Jardin des Tuileries" and the "Place Vendôme" were created. Minor changes to the streets occurred later, for instance "rue de la Paix" (originally "rue Napoléon") was built at the beginning of the 19th century. The rue Saint-Honoré was known as been a place where all ranks of nobility and rich Parisian families found their suppliers since the 16th century. Nowadays the places and people have evolved, but the trend is the same. Except for Sundays, when all shops are closed, the area is always busy and lively.
With all this History what we now have is an amazing architecture and museums. All the streets in the neighbourhood have a very specific theme, the buildings all present a harmonious architecture and design and most of them if not all are of historical importance.
The "Jardin des Tuileries" itself is another piece of History, and in addition to its green area it offers a couple of museums (Le Jeu de Paume and l`Orangerie). Through this garden, and thanks to the Passerelle Solférino, it is easy to access the museum of Orsay, whereas within a short walking distance one also reaches the Louvre. For more theatrical entertainment the "La Comédie Française" and the Opéra Garnier are also very close by.
The nearest metro stations are Tuilerie (line 1) and Concorde (lines 1 and 12)

The place looked exactly as expected! Loved it with all my heart, except a few minor problems. The shower filled up pretty quickly so your shower is quite rushed, and (this is completely bad timing) but it was so hot and we were without air conditioning and we only found a fan the last day. However, nonetheless, the place is amazing and in such a great location that it's hard to fight.
Thank you for a great stay!
Guys that helped check us in were friendly and helpful. Apt was what we expected. Furnished good and bed slept well..kitchen and bath were good.Location was very good..close enough to metro and banks...no bakery close by which was a bummer. Restaurants were good near by.Would recommend staying there.
Bettina and her colleagues are all very wonderful and accommodating. The location of the apartment is awesome! However, I would not recommend this apartment for more than two people. As cute and airy as it is, it's very small. Not much closet space. Not a real dining space, either.
I found the apartment not to be up to date with modern necessities...but what was a disheveled heap of items just gathered in various cupboards and drawers with no organization or anything. This was a big disappointment...unfortunately.
The linens for the beds were not what I expected, but rather what one may find at their grandma's house, just mediocre at best. No extra bedding but only what you had on the bed. Without a dryer, it was nearly impossible to wash the sheets and have them dry by the end of the day.
