BE CAREFUL!!!!! We did not arrive because we were told the apartment was not available.
We booked the apartment same evening using instant booking. We sent a message straight away using Airbnb and SMS to the host to request details of how to access the apartment.
Unfortunately, within 5 minutes of booking the host called to advise that the apartment was actually not available and that we couldn't stay there for that night.
Luckily we found an alternative the same night.
However we have been surprised that we have not had a refund because the host incorrectly advised Airbnb that we were the ones who cancelled the booking. This is a blatant lie.
Airbnb Customer Service have quoted below: "We have called the host and she never wanted to cancel. "
This is incredibly unfair because we booked and paid for the apartment...we were not allowed to stay there because it was not ready and the host has blocked the refund so we paid for accommodation which we never stayed in.
Please be careful as it seems that host is very happy to let you book, take your money and cancel your stay last minute and then not give you a refund!!!!
We did not meet the host...but his communication and directions were great. Access to the apartment was easy and it is within 10 mins walk to Eiffel Tower.
We were family of 2 adults and 2 small children. We stayed 1 night.
The apartment is clean, tidy and functional and has its own charm.
Bathroom was large and clean.
Apartment is recommended to anyone.
