Ranked #37 of 190 Speciality Lodging in Paris
Reviewed 30 July 2014

Re Ref.#013: On May 14 - 22, 2014, my husband and I rented an absolutely wonderful two bedroom apartment from Special Apartments overlooking the Seine only a block or so from the Louvre. Our daughter, her husband, and our 13 month old grand daughter accompanied us. I cannot rave enough about the apartment itself. Every room in the unit was big and comfortable even by American standards, including the modern eat-in kitchen which also had a clothes washer that did not require instructions to use! The bathroom was also modern with a shower door that closed (thank goodness - this meant no water spillage onto the bathroom floor). At first I was dismayed that the unit had no elevator and I had to walk up two flights of stairs, but after eating every day a "pain au chocolat", I decided the walk-up was a good thing. The apartment is well situated, close to everything.

This is the second time we have rented from Special Apartments because they are terrifically responsive to our zillion questions and any issues, no matter how small and trivial, that pop up during our stay.

I recommend apartment Ref. #013 without reservations. You will be so happy that you chose it.

We stayed in apartment #041 on Rue Rambuteau, it was a very clean and spacious light apartment in an ideal location. We were a little worried about it being noisy but as the bedrooms are on the back it was actually very quiet. It was also great that each bedroom had an ensuite. The kitchen is well equipped so that you can cook your own meals and also has a dishwasher. There are some good food stores nearby as well as patisseries and cafes.

We would definitely stay in an apartment through this company again, they were professional and communicated well before our trip answering any questions that I had. They gave us clear instructions on where we needed to pick up the keys up from (as we arrived early evening). The only very small negatives would be that the two main beds were too low down for our liking and there isn't a lift as it's on the fourth floor but all in all a very pleasant stay and can't wait to go back to Paris. :)

Mty family and me of 2 adults/2 teenagers stayed in apt. 7 for 5 days. A really nice appartment perfectly situated! loads of restaurants, cafees, bakeries, cheese stores, shops, etc., just around the cornes. While the appartment itself was very quitet, with windows turning away from the street. No view, but definitely very Parisian. The subway could be vaguely felt, but was no nuissance. With a separate kitchen the appartment was big enough for a family of 4. It was hot, though! 30 degrees Celcius outside meant 30 degrees inside, too. The sleeping room had a transportable fan which made it possible to sleep there. But no aircondition-quality. But as far as I know you don't get that anywhere in Paris. So don't let that deter you. We had a great stay.

We stayed in App 26 for a week in May - gorgeous bright airy top floor studio and incredibly comfy bed! Every fresh ingredient you need for your picnic is on your doorstep - pate en croute to die for at the butchers round the corner.....
Our second "Special Apartments" experience - Regis and the team are absolutely lovely and they all work extremely hard to look after their guests - it's always great to see them!
We're looking forward to trying another one maybe in the St Germain area next year.......
You can't really beat special apartments on price, variety of accomodation, and flexibility of holiday duration......
Many thanks again from Julie and David - see you next year :)

Spent 9 days at this one bedroom apartment in the southwestern edge of the 10th arrondisement which is a multi-cultural area of shops, markets and restaurants. It was just a few minutes walk to the Metro Stausborg St Denis station and was perfectly located for our visit. We wanted the experience of living like Parisennes and we got it. We enjoyed the sun filled balcony with French lavender. The only negative was no instructions on how to use the washing machine (finally fiqured it out) and no dryer. We hung our clothes to dry on the line installed for this purpose in the bathroom. Although I was a little taken back at first when I saw the main entrance and dark hallway leading to the stairs, I was very happy with the apartment's inviting and modern appearance.

We stayed in apartment #006 and what a pleasure this stay was. This apartment is based in the 2nd aridismont which I think is the best district to stay in in Paris. It is quiet but full of life with countless cafe's and bakeries within a stones throw of the apartment. All main tourist attractions are within easy commute from this apartment. Everything was clean and spacious which is unusual for Paris. Most importantly was the service support from the Special apartments people. This was second to none. Nothing was too simple or hard for them. Always friendly and a pleasure to work with.
I would definitely stay here again.

We rented #034. This is a great hotel alternative if you want to get close to most attractions in the city. We walked almost everywhere. It is very close to the Louvre and Louvre-Rivoli subway station. The apartment is a small but this is typical in Paris. There is a G20 supermarket nearby where we bought most of our breakfast needs. We would cook our breakfast, walk around, try local restaurants for lunch and come back to the apartment for a nap. In the afternoon, we would walk again. We literally saw the whole Paris city centre by foot.
