Here is a F.A.Q About the apartment, hope it helps you have a better idea about your future experience with us ;)
1. What is the rental process?
Just select your dates, number of people, and go through with the booking,
2. What would the total be for renting your place between certain dates?
It depends on what you select when you go through the booking (the price should be indicated once you have selected dates and number of people etc on the booking page for the apartment). (cf. #1).
3. Would there be a deposit? If so how much would it be?
Yes there is. You pay it to AirBnB, and they give it back to you 2 days after you are out of the apartment if everything goes normally.
I have never had a problem before, and all of my guests have collected their deposit back.
The Deposit is 300€.
4. Would it accommodate two people?
Definitely. Two people would be most comfortable in the apartment :).
Four people can stay very comfortably in the apartment, as there is a real 160cm wide bed in the living room.
5. Do you have Internet access?
Yes. There is both LAN and WiFi Access. It is very fast.
6. Is this a secure building?
It is a very safe building.
First of all it is a very safe neighborhood.
The street door requires a code to get in. and the building door does too.
There is also a metallic curtain in front of the windows for extra safety if you feel like you need it ;).
7. What time do we have to check in and check out?
Whenever you want, I am very flexible and always looking to accomodate my guests to the best of my ability.
The only restriction to this, is if guests before/after you have arrive at the required hour... then you have to leave at "your" normal check-out hour so that the cleaning staff can do their job and make the place perfect again for the next guest.
8. Are you close to pubic transportation?
You have a metro station less than 30 sec away walking.
Gare Saint-Lazare is very close (5 minutes walk).
And the BusStop from Roissy CDG is also 5 minutes away (rue Scribe).
9. Is there grocery shopping/ cafés near your place?
There is everything you can dream of nearby.
Departments Stors like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps (french equivalent of Bloomingdale's, Macy's or Harrod's), are just down the street (3 minutes walk).
There are heaps of Cafés and restaurants nearby, including my personal favorite for morning coffees and afternoon teas: "Le Greffulhe", just down the street from the apartment, they will change your fears of "bad french service".
10. Is parking available?
Yes. Lots of offices in the neighborhood , so lots of parking both in our street, as well as in the surrounding streets.
11. Do you have a washing machine?
Washing machine, dryer, as well as dishwasher and all amenities are provided with the apartment.
12. Is there anything we should know about your place?
It's very comfy, very well designed, equipped with state-of-the-art everything, as well as actual Art ;). In short, it is the perfect base-camp for a wonderful Paris experience!

Other Things to Note

Please consider this home as your own, and respect it accordingly :).
The host provided detailed instructions with directions and codes for accessing the apartment. It was easy to reach.
Host was not present to receive us. We had to figure out everything on our own, which is normally not that hard having stayed at other airbnb apartments. However, in this apartment, we were take by surprise to find that we didn't have enough sheets and towels for our family of 2 children and 2 adults. When we entered the apartment, the laundry machine was running and I had no clue how and what to do with it (laundry console is in French).
Apartment has slight smell of smoking. We had asked the host specifically about this, but never got a clear response. We are a non smoking family with 2 young children, so the smell made our stay little unpleasant. The comforters in the living room had dirty stains and can certainly use a wash to remove the smell.
The kitchen has lots of china dishes and wine openers, etc, but the basic cooking utensils (e.g. pots / pans) were missing. The one cooking pan is very old, with scraped non-stick surfaces (not sure how safe that is to use!).
The weather was warm in the nights and we had only one tiny fan in the bedroom. We would have appreciated having another fan in the living room (as it was promised by the host in a prior communication).
The really worst experience was the fact that the shower was clogged. We spent a good deal of time clearing all the hair and gunk from the shower drain by using an old cloth hanger as a hook. That wasn't the best morning on a vacation day in Paris.
The host did not respond to our airbnb messages for a good solid 24 hours or so, and could not come and meet us during our stay. To his credit, the host left a fan on the last day in the living room, but that's about it. It would have been nice to have some clean sheets and towels too!
The location itself is great. Just a few minutes from the metro station, and several major Paris attractions like Louvre are within 20 minutes walking distance.
The apartment is very easy to access ;) the location is very good since it is near to the Vendôme palace, and only 5 minutes walk to the subway station and you can get everywhere you want by metro. The neighborhood is really safe and quite. The apartment is not large but enough for 2 persons. It is well equipped and we did experience a pleasant accommodation in this apartment.
J'ai séjourné 3 jours dans cet appartement lors d'un déplacement professionnel.
L'appartement est bien situé et bien décoré.
Lors de mon passage la table basse était casée, c'est gênant mais cela peut arrivé...
La cour n'est pas privative, donc pas vraiment utilisable en terrasse.
Dans l'ensemble mon séjour c'est bien passé.
Small but fantastic place for a 1 night stay. Definitely good for a couple but there is no door between the bedroom and living room so no privacy if you want two separate places. Great location. Easy to find and access.

About the Host, Catherine-Marie
Having been lucky enough to live and travel abroad for several years, I have come to appreciate what "being a good host" means.
I am very happy that others coming from all around the world can enjoy beautiful Paris and Cannes as I know it. That is the reason why I chose to rent my apartments on AirBnB, in order to offer great service and accommodation to fellow world travelers.
Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any advice, regardless of whether you want to rent my apartment or not, I am more than happy to help! :-)
I enjoy traveling to different countries, gastronomy from all around the world, as well as meeting new people and making new friends.
A bientôt! :)
