About This Listing
Surely one of the best offer, now available in Paris:
This 60m2 apt is situated on the 3rd floor of a typical parisian building ( with an elevator) in a beautiful courtyard.
Designed by an architect, this very stylish place is perfect for you if you really want to live like a parisian... but still be in a comfortable and quiet place!
When entering, you'll find a beautiful and large living room, with a couch that can easily be an extra bed for 2 persons ( but it's not a sofa bed: have a look at the pictures), there is TV, wifi, a huge desk goes along the wall. There is a big table where you can seat at 6, with 4 Eames chairs, and the kitchen, fully equiped ( toaster, boiler, dish washer...).
On your right will be the bathroom, with a bathtub AND a shower cabin, plus the sink, and the toilets are seperated.
The bedroom has a queen size bed, and many cupboards to put all your clothes.
There is plenty of room to put all your stuff: this appartment will be all yours, you will feel instantly at home!
You will have 2 keys to the apt.
It's situated in front of the Passy Plaza Mall, in a street with many shops and nice restaurants... 10 min walk from the Trocadéro and the eiffel tower!
It's the perfect start to visit the most important Parisians attractions, and one of the best and more secure neighborhood to live inside Paris, and really feel this unique atmosphere.

Interaction with Guests
I work 3 blocks away, and i'm always very quick to respond to your emails; i love to give you great tips for you to organise your stay in Paris, but of course i never have to "make a stop" at your parisian home... except if you want me to!
Seriously, Passy is the best neighborhood to visit Paris. You'll be a few minutes from the main touristic spots... by walk! But, Passy is also a very cosy village, with mainly parisian people living there, a typical market every morning... a nice parisian place to stay.
My stay in Paris was the stuff of dreams! From the very first moment I arrived, Emi made me feel welcome and at home. The apartment was everything that it promised and more! Conveniently located to fun shops, restaurants, 2 metro stations and an easy walk to the Eiffel Tower, it really was perfect. If I could have moved in and stayed forever I would have. This was my third trip to Paris but my first time staying here and I don't think it's a coincidence that this was my favorite trip so far. Many, many thanks to Emi for her hospitality and lovely home. I can't wait to go back!
Apartment was just as described and Emi was completely helpful and available for whatever came up. Looking forward to renting it again soon!
Clear and quiet /Clair et calme.
The building on the picture is across the street. This one is old and poorly maintained.
L'immeuble sur la photo est de l'autre côté de la rue. celui-ci est vieux et pas très bien entretenu.
Pictures do not let you realize that so many windows look into the apartment. You have to live with closed curtains.
Les photos ne montrent pas qu'il y a un vis-à-vis terrible et qu'il faut vivre avec les rideaux fermés.
Eating and serving utensils are not matching. La vaisselle et les couverts sont totalement désassortis.
Do not work/Ne fonctionnent pas:
Stove though I tried to fix it according to the manual and TV.
La cuisinière bien que j'ai tenté de la faire marcher selon le manuel et la télé.
When I arrived the heating was not on. It was less than 60°F in the apartment. I had to find how to fix it by myself the next day.
Quand je suis arrivé, le chauffage ne fonctionnait pas. Il faisait moins de 15°C) dans l'appart. Ce n'est que le lendemain que j'ai trouvé seul comment l'allumer.
Dirty/Sale: Le four, les peintures notamment dans les toilettes, les fenêtre n'ont pas été nettoyées depuis très longtemps, la porte de la douche, les couverts, les tiroirs de la salle de bain pleins de cheveux et le canapé sur lequel il s'est sous doute passé beaucoup de choses...
The oven, the wall paint is dirty and particularly in the toilet, the windows have not been cleaned in a very long time, the shower door, the silverware, the drawers of the bathroom which were full of old dirty hair and the sofa on which a lot must have happened.
Overwhelming/Par dessus tout: The smell (probably due to the fact that you can almost not open the windows in the bathroom and the toilet because they are too high). Despite the freezing cold outside and the heating problem, I had to keep the kitchen and bedroom windows open and to burn scented candles all the time but to no effect.
L'odeur (sans doute due à ce que les fenêtres de la salle de bain et les toilettes ne peuvent quasiment pas être ouvertes car trop hautes). Malgré le froid glacial et les problèmes de chauffage, j'ai dû vivre avec la fenêtre de la cuisine et de la chambre ouvertes en brûlant en permanence des bougies parfumées mais sans résultat.
Make sure the apartment has been restored before renting it.
Assurez-vous que l'apartment a été restauré avant de le louer.
Wonderful host. Pictures and descriptions very accurate. Perfect location to wander to all the main attractions and located in a very safe area. Emi also had great tips on things to do and places to eat. Would highly recommend and would love to stay again.
If you are traveling to Paris, this is the place to stay! Emi is a perfect host and her apartment is really luxury in a great location! The apartment itself is clean, spacious, beautiful, and very well equipped with everything you need for cooking or relax. Highly recommended!!
Very comfort house and quiet environment，I really spent a great time in Paris！
