We had a lovely three nights at this small, cosy apartment. The location is great for the Metro, good local restaurants (or small supermarket if you want to self-cater) and the Eiffel Tower (15 min walk). The apartment is suitable for two adults, might feel cramped with four. Information on how to access the apartment was provided well in advance of our trip and was easy to follow. The building is quiet and residential - not recommended if you want to come back late and noisily. Agree with previous reviewers that the loose floorboard in the bedroom is a big trip hazard.
Our review succinctly, in 5 words: we would stay there again! As for a more detailed account. While we did not meet Olivia in person, she was available via mobile if we needed her. She was very friendly and attentive to the couple of glitches we encountered.
Everything worked as per the instructions except for a glitch with the key - a sophisticated lock and key mechanism used a lot in Europe - it turns out that one thing missing in the instructions is to pull the door towards you when you're opening the door. Olivia sent someone to help us, but before he arrived, a friendly neighbor was able to open the door for us. That's how we realized we had to pull the door toward us to open it. The apartment was pretty much what you see in the photos and description, except a little worn down. It needs some upkeep (which according to Olivia, will be done soon).
The location and neighborhood couldn't be better. Short walks would take us to the grocery store (Carrefour City) or a variety of bakeries, butchers, cheese stores, etc. The subway was also close. For joggers, the place is perfect as you can run down to the Seine near Les Invalides easily and from there go as far as you want, I ran passed the Louvre and back. There's also lots of cafes and restaurants nearby (favorite street nearby is Rue Cler).
Suggestions, if any, would be to add some cooking utensils like a pasta drainer to the kitchen as well as some more different pots.
We stayed at the unit from 11th Apr 2015 to 16th Apr 2015 inclusive.
One problem that occurred before we arrived was an e-mail from airbnb regarding the eye lock combination - number suuplied was different to the original number supplied by Olivia - we replied to both airbnb and Olivia requesting confirmation of the new key lock combination but did not receive a reply from either party re the change. In the end upon arrival we tried both combinations and found the correct one.
Apart from the above the unit was in a clean condition when we arrived.
Fue muy buena experiencia estar en el apartamento de Olivia. Las instrucciones para acceder al departamento fueron muy claras y la ubicación de este lugar es la mejor, cerca de todo, estación del metro, restaurantes, cafés y supermercado. Haciendo la estancia de nosotros muy agradable
Apartment was just as advertised and provided a lovely stay in a great neighborhood. Instructions/communications prior to the trip were complete and clear. We comfortably fit four (though we were all family and were close) and had no issues at all during our stay. Many thanks!
The neighbourhood was nice and quiet, the place close to a grocery store and various other shops and restaurants. The apartment was very close to the given description but did not show or tell about a very significant bump in the bedroom floor that was easy to trip over. The host gave us the needed information regarding entry codes and wifi password but was not very friendly about confirming the information and making us feel welcome.
