A Paris dream come true May 01, 2011
What can i say, this appartment was all i expected from it! I just can't say anything bad about it!
First of all the reservation progress.
I found this appartement online so i was a little doubtfull if all would go well! but as it turns out there was no need for that! The first contact was great, the owners speak English perfectly (they are American) and they master French pretty great as well (they've been living in Paris for several years!)
The person i had contact with trough the internet was Quentin, he quickly explained how everything worked. One of the great things to me was the way they treated me as a "customer". the contact was always friendly, spantaneous and filled with honest pleasure! Normally we should have paid an advance or send a travellers cheque to confirm the booking! but that for me came with a lot of costs and i explained that and they didn't make any problem out of it and trusted me on my word so i found that great and i felt very welcome
Second the contact in the time between the reservation and arriving. I had a few small questions sometimes and i always got an answer the very same day from them. Quentin also gave me his mobile number in case we would have any problems with finding the appartment of if we would be delayed.
Third the arrival. Quentin's brother was already waiting for us. Also he was a very pleasant person! He carried my bag upstairs like a gentleman on the way explaining how everything worked. He showed us where everything could be found and where we could reach him in case of an emergency! All in all it took about 20 minutes and after that we paid for our stay! We also gave 100 euro's that we would get back at the end of our stay if everything was in the state we found it in
Fourth the appartment itself and the location. the appartment was absolutely fabulous. it is located in Le Marais, a gorgeous neighbourhoud in Paris, 5 minutes walking from the metro, with the oldest bakery of Paris almost right across our place and an other one right at the metro stop. There also was a little supply shop just 100 meters away, really friendly guy btw! The appartment felt very safe! there was a first door at the street, then a small hallway with a second door, then a small outside court, then the door of the building and then the appartment door! the appartment itself was rather small but the space was used perfectly! there was a small bathroom with a great rainshower and a sink! shampoo was provided. then a small kitchen with everything one could need! pots and pans, mugs, glases, plates, you all know the drill! there also was a watercooker,a microwave an oven,a freezer and a deepfreezer plus 2 hotplates to cook!
The toilet was in a small seperate space and a fan started to work everythime you would open the door! further there was a computer with interenet acces and there also was wifi, a phone with free calls within Paris, the US and their selfphones, a tv with sattelite connection ( does take a little studying to make it work :p :p) and last but not least a washing machine if you would have the need to wash your clothes. a great bed with built in cupboards around it that was more than big enoug for 2 people! At night it was really quit which i need to be able to sleep so that was also great! And everything was just simply done with a lot of style and great materials! it made the apartment feel like a home
The owners returned the 100 euro's well in time before we left and also asked if everything was as we wished and with pain in my heart i left this great place!
to sum it up: Great value for money, great owners, made my stay in Paris a dream! everyone should consider this
