The first day was a nightmare because there was a problem on the host's end with cleaning services so the place wasn't available to rest in until 9:30PM. We weren't told about this until we arrived in Paris at noon thus leaving us stuck to wander the streets tired and needing rest. (Sure felt like a waste of money for the first day) The location is amazing for everything a tourist can ask for. Overall, communication with Camille was sub-par but if you book this place you are paying for the location and only the location.
The apartment is in a perfect location however I would not recommend staying here as Camille was difficult to contact and there were a number of issues. Despite trying multiple times to contact her via email, text message and phone 2 weeks prior to arrival we did not hear back from her until the night before our arrival when we were flying to paris. On arrival in Paris she emailed us (in French), explaining that the plumbing had been switched off and that her aunt would meet us there. Luckily I have a friend in Paris who spoke French and was able to liaise with her aunt and Camille herself. The plumbing issue was resurrected on arrival however it was agreed that we would be refunded one nights stay due to the hassle. During our 1 week stay Camille said she would refund us the money in person however this did not occur and she would not answer our calls. Since we checked out on the 7th of July she emailed us to get our bank account details to send us the refund however we still have not received it.
I would not reccomend Camille as a host as she was impossible to get ahold of. She never responded to any texts or emails. Her only contact was to tell me the key was in the mailbox and that was about 8 hours before I was to arrive in Paris. Very stressful for my wife and I. I wish I had asked for a refund. The washer and dryer never worked and even though I requested the wifi password 4 times I never got a reply from her. Nice place and nice location but not worth the stress.
Overall one can say that the apartment was very cute and clean and Camille a nice hostess, leaving us some water and coffee. The neighborhood was great and located in the centre of Paris, so you could reach every spot by walking. But one should also mention, that Camille didn't answer neither our mails nor our calls from the booking till the last day before arrival, which put us in an unnecessary stressful position. She also didn't leave us the wifi-access. If you are a bad sleeper, you should also take some earplugs with you; There are two clubs downstairs, making a hell of noise during the weekend. Beside this the trip was great and we would come back!
The apartment was awesome and in a great location, however we did have several issues. Camille was impossible to get a hold of and, despite me emailing and texting her about organising check-in numerous times in the week leading up to our arrival, we didn't hear back from her until our stopover on our flight..only 10 hours before arriving. We also emailed her before leaving to find out what to do with sheets/rubbish and the key, but never heard back from her.
We also emailed her about the wifi and the washing machine not working and we received a delayed response giving us the wifi login info (we'd already spent money getting Internet on our phones as we couldn't work out the wifi) and telling us "sorry the washing machine doesn't work". This was disappointing as the washing machine was part of our reason for choosing the apartment, and we had to waste time and money going to the laundromat. The machine wasn't even plumbed into the wall either, so it's not like it broke last minute. There were also some problems with the shower flooding/not draining, but we used some drain cleaner on it and it improved. Despite the difficulties, it really is a great apartment in a lovely area of Paris.
Un bel endroit vraiment au cœur de saint germain des près... Tout est à portée pour visiter ce beau quartier. L'appartement de Camille est vraiment bien placé, au calme, extrêmement bien agencé et très propre. Merci Camille de ton accueil. J'y ai fait une halte de trois jours pour déplacement professionnel... À renouveler dans le cadre d'un séjour à deux pour mieux pouvoir profiter Saint Germain...
We had a lovely stay in Saint Germain. The apartment is in an ideal location close to the metro, local shops, bars and restaurants. It's spacious and had a unique appeal. We had some initial trouble finding the front door to the block. The apartment is inside - look for the number 11. Also make note of the pass codes for the doors :p
this was our first time booking an airbnb and unfortunately we did not have a very good experience. we tried to contact camille a week before our travels started so that we could get all the information necessary to access her apartment however after multiple attempts she still had not replied until the night before we arrived in paris. once we arrived we had no access to wifi since camille had not provided any information. before booking this apartment we had made sure with camille that the washer and dryer had been fixed after reading a few reviews. she had reassured us that the washer/dryer had been fixed and was working when we booked. upon arrival we were notified that the washer and dryer was not working?! this was quite disappointing and inconvenient for us since we had been travelling for a week prior to arriving in paris. when we had emailed her to ask for one night compensation like she had done previously for someone else (according to the review) she did not reply. infact she could not be reached after the first day and did not respond to any of our emails. another downside was that this apartment (especially the washroom) was freezing with only a small block heater to keep us warm. another disappointment was the lack of hot water. i had freezing cold showers since the hot water ran out after 2 minutes. it was hard to sleep on the weekend due to the noise of the neighbours and the "gentlemen's sexy club" downstairs. the location of the apartment was the only positive!!
Very comfortable apartment. All you need for basic cooking is supplied. Great location, walking distance to most attractions.
We stayed for 5 nights in this place.
First think, it is almost impossible to communicate with this lady. We could not learn how to meet her and get the key of the apartment until last minute before our flight. Besides, on our arrival to Paris, just in front of the apartment door, we received a text message from her, telling that the place was still occupied by the previous locators. So, we had to spend our time outside for 7-8 hours!
Our second night in the place was a nightmare. Our neighbor started crying and yelling at 02:00 AM and did not stop until 07:00 AM. It was impossible to sleep. We asked the situation to Camille (because she lives in the same building) but could not get any response.
By the way, the washing machine was not working. If you are thinking to benefit such services offered by the place, forget about these.
The internet stopped working on the third day because Mrs. Camille did not pay the bill. We also asked this situation to her. Guess what? We could not get any response.
Basically, we could not contact her during our stay. Even-dough, as we could not reach her, we had to leave the keys at the post box.
But, the location of the apartment is great. This is the only positive think that we can say about it. If you are thinking to rent this place, so, good luck to you! Be prepared to an adventurous vacation.
