Rules of The House
WELCOME TO YOUR HOME AWAY FROM HOME and to our loyal community of the Friends-of-the-House.
This is a self-catering accommodation in the heart of Paris-on-a-budget.
Who are our guests?
Through the years, our loyal & distinguished guests, (professors, researchers, artists, lawyers, physicians & honeymooners) have demanded centrally located studios steps from the magical Parisian Bridges and a walking distance from all major sights, museums & Universities, at the lowest prices to save their money for more important things.
Our formula of no-frills accommodation delights everyone for years, you save money while you feel and act like a PARISIAN, if you break something fix it, replace it, if you run out of something buy what you need like a true Parisian, on the day of departure you will leave the studio as clean, or cleaner for the next guest who will come here to enjoy this fabulous location, second to none.
Generous guests left paintings, wine glasses, flowers and even poems. We rely on your generosity to keep these 7 studios operationally-self-sufficient in the face of daunting rising expenses in Paris. (Paris in now the second most expensive city in the World.)
Some guests pay the 120eu for cleaning services some prefer to save the money and leave the studio as clean or cleaner to avoid this unnecessary charge.
Your responsibility will be to feel and act as a Parisian homeowner:
1.If you chose to save the cleaning charge of 120eu, at arrival after 2:00 pm make a mental note of how the studio looks like, so that on the day of departure you will leave it as clean or cleaner for the next guest who wants to enjoy this fabulous location. Check in is 2:00 pm (unless you need to drop your luggage but not before 11:00am) The clean linen will be dropped around 2:00 am. If you enter before 2:00pm and you found it untidy, it is probably because the previous guest called us at the last minute to pay 120eu for the cleaning, which will be done for you.
(website hidden) the dishes regularly and especially at the day of departure.
3.Bring down the garbage regularly, (located near the mail boxes) and especially on the last day, please take all the garbage downstairs with you.
4.Clean the fridge. If there are edible-left-over put them on the table (as a gift for our caretakers but please do not leave anything in the fridge).
5.You are a Parisian, and this is your home away from home, accordingly buy a lamp (bulb) if needed, paper-towels, bathroom-soaps and coffee filters as per your needs.

Our caretakers are doctoral students, top of their country to study in Paris, they speak many languages and they are the smartest you can find.

We pray you will feel and act as a Parisian homeowner and contribute to keep these studios operationally-self-sufficient.
