My friends and I had a lovely stay at this apartment. It was a well decorated, secure and comfortable living space. The apartment location was perfect for our stay with metros being so close by and many good cafes, boulangeries and restaurants just a few steps away. Benjamin has excellent communication skills and is overall a great host.
Our overall experience was very good. The apartment was very nice, clean and very quiet. It has everything you need. Benjamin wasn't in town but made sure Patrick was there to meet us. Centrally located and close to everything. Previous reviews mentioned it could get musty in the apartment but we had perfect weather and had the windows open most of the time so wasn't affected by that. While we were there they were working on the outside of the building so it looked a little questionable. Rue St. Denis definitely isn't the best street. It has a few very nice boutiques and a few sex shops with prostitutes on the streets. We walked around late at night and felt safe but I would beware if your traveling with a family and kids. The surrounding streets were very nice though and I can see where the street might turn around eventually. After walking around the city there are some much nicer streets to stay in Paris. Overall it was a positive experience.
Great time in Paris!
There were four of us sharing this apartment. There isn't much division between the bedroom and the living room, so we didn't have much privacy. The bathroom was large and the water pressure excellent. However, the building itself is in disrepair and it was very musty - we covered our noses and mouths walking through the building and up the stairs. We also had to sleep with the window open as some of us were sensitive to the mustiness; definitely problematic for those who have been exposed to mold in the past and have increased sensitivity to air quality. Besides that, the apartment is centrally located and it was easy to get around.
We were a family of 4 - parents and 2 children - a 5 year old and a 2 year old.
Kitchen: Our basic requirement was the ability to cook homemade meals and warm milk. The kitchen is more than sufficient with stove and pots and other stuff.
Location: Well located to all points of interest.
Response time: Benjamin is extremely fast in responding to our queries.
Flexibility: We had a late evening flight and Benjamin accommodated our overstaying.
Space: Good space and is not like the matchbox hotel rooms.
I will definitely recommend this place to my friends and if i get a chance to visit Paris again, book the same place.
We had the most fabulous stay in Benjamin's apartment! It is a great apartment in a great location - close to the metro and easily accessible from a number of metro lines. The apartment itself is small but functional; we had 4 people stay there very comfortably but it is possibly better suited to 2. Benjamin is lovely and was very accommodating, offering to help out with any problems and being very flexible with the check in and check out times to suit our travel plans. I would highly recommend a stay in this beautiful apartment, whether for a couple of days or for a longer period in beautiful Paris!
Benjamin has been a great guest. Really clean and respectful.
Thank you Benjamin and partner for being superb guests. You left the apartment clean and tidy just as I prefer. 5 stars for cleanliness 5 stars for observance of house rules. I hope you again consider Cozy Garden View for your New York stay in the future. And I fully recommend you both to all hosts.
