Paris Furnished Apartments Company

Has anyone booked an apartment through Paris Furnished Apartments aka Roots Travel recently?

Were you pleased with their service? How about HouseTrip? I am going to Paris in October and am looking for a good company to deal with. Thanks, maggib

I will let you know- I booked through them for my upcoming trip. So far they have been helpful, responsive and I have even spoke with them on the phone..I like that they accept credit cards and they have a local office in the Marais. Plus they meet you at the apartment for a checkin so any complaints can be addressed immediately..They are not mentioned amongst the "recommended" you will see mentioned on the forum...but I could not find anything horrible about them either...I booked with them before reading the forum..as with many things in my life I sometimes do things in the wrong order but they always seem to go well....

Based on forum posts I would avoid using Housetrip.

I've never heard of Paris Furnished Apartments.

I'd avoid Housetrip as well. Put the word Housetrip in the search box above. I'm not sure there's even one good review of them here on TA.

you can add perfectly paris and feels like home in Paris -- mostly Montmartre and nearby,but excellent well managed apartments. they are hands on managers not a listing service.

Hi Maggi I was referring to PFA; not HT. there are a few posts on PFA...If you have not booked I would go with the ones recommended. BTW PFA lists on VBRO, flip key and TA; not as I have learned that that means much- but as I said I have spoken with them and been in communication several times- they seem legit; along with the reviews posted about the management, I took a leap of faith. But with this wise input here I would go with the recommended ones..

Like Kate, I too took a leap of faith and have booked an apartment in the Marais for the month of October through PFA. I had researched all the Paris apartment rental companies and decided on PFA because everything is paid by credit card (no cash exchanged) and the price includes everything (utilities, agency fee, basic insurance, etc.) except for a E40 cleanup fee. They respond quickly to emails. I thought I got a great price on a one bedroom. I did not find many reviews (especially current ones) but I liked the answers to their FAQs on their website. We'll see.... Will report back after stay.

I have been meaning to post- I had a great experience with PFA, my flight was delayed but my pre-arranged driver was there waiting for me and Ianto was there waiting to let me into the apartment and show me around. After traveling almost 15+ hours, to have all this handled and go smoothly was a plus. To be clear this was not a luxury apartment, a bit worn around the edges, but the location, the quietness and charm of the studio more than made up for anything that was missing..I would definitely rent through PFA again, in fact would rent the very same studio as I loved the neighborhood so much.

After reading all the posts about apartment rentals gone bad, I was very very nervous about going with an agency that was not recommended by the TA regulars- but have to say from my very first contact with PFA, including a reassuring phone call with Ianto, it went very smoothly.
