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?
I am not sure, as 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 :). There is one large Queen size bed in the bedroom, and one extra folding bed.
5. Do you have Internet access?
Yes. There is both LAN and Wireless 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 and inside door require a code to get in.
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 normal hour... then you have to leave at "your" normal check-out hour so that the cleaning staff can do their job.
8. Are you close to public transportation?
Very close! You have the metro station « ODEON » less than 2mn away walking and the train from Roissy CDG and Orly is also 10 minutes away.
9. Is there grocery shopping/ cafés near your place?
There is everything you can dream of nearby. There are heaps of cafés and restaurants nearby, including my personal favorite for morning coffees and afternoon teas: "Paul", just down the street from the apartment,
10. 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!
