I wanted to post this in case someone was looking to rent a furnished apartment in Paris and came across this location.
I was on the Lodgis.com website and came across an apartment that, according to the website, was available. It is currently listed as:
1 bedroom Apartment - approx. 40 m2, has air conditioning, space for four people, on the second floor with no elevator, modern yellow kitchen in the photos.
The dates I needed (8 days) were available so I contacted Lodgis. I received confirmation that the apartment was available and that a final confirmation with the owners was needed.
When the agent contacted me again, the owners had indicated that the apartment was not available the last day, and I was asked if I still wanted to book for the remaining 7 days. I responded that I did, and I received the contract/forms/information. I completed everything and faxed it in. A few days later I was contacted and informed that the first 2 days were no longer available, and I was told that the apartment was no longer available at all.
I almost thought about booking the remaining available dates and going from there but obviously the owners have no problem playing games with possible renters.
I'm not sure if this reflects poorly on Lodgis or simply on these owners. This whole process took 2-3 weeks, with delays between each e-mail, there was a slight delay caused by the agent getting the month wrong in terms of booking dates, and ultimately the information Lodgis had on its site had nothing to do with what was available.
