This apartment is on the third floor of a nice building on a quiet street, a few hundred meters from the Miromesnil metro stop, where two lines (13 and 9) converge. There are four steps up to the lift on the ground floor. There are bus stops nearby, and a cab stand, so transportation is easy. It is very well equipped and attractively furnished.
The bed is what Americans call "queen-sized," and comfortable for two people. The en suite bathroom is a bit cramped, but perfectly serviceable; the other bathroom is standard size, with good storage. The only major appliance we used was the combination washer-dryer, which worked fine. The surrounding neighborhood is very convenient, with friendly, affordable places to eat, and also some fancier ones, plus the usual small groceries, boulangeries, etc. If you would like to buy an original Rodin, there's a shop a few doors down the street that will help you with that.
We stayed in moderate weather, so we had no occasion to try either the heat (radiant) or the air conditioning (two indoor Penguino units). There are ample openable windows, however, so I would expect it to be pretty comfortable in warm weather, regardless.
Joseph is a model host. We would be glad to stay here again.
Perfect location, beautiful and comfortable apartment. Fully equipped large kitchen. Stayed 3 weeks in October 2017, and we loved it! Joseph is a great host! Easygoing and very friendly. Very happy with choosing this apartment!
We feel very lucky to have found this beautiful apartment for our week in Paris this year. The apartment is spacious and appointed with everything you could need. We especially enjoyed the first class kitchen so we could shop the local markets and cook in our "Paris Kitchen" when we were not out dining at some of the great local cafes.
The location is very conveient being only one block from a Metro stop and a few blocks to walk to the Champs Elysees.
We visited Paris for eight days, and a large part of the success of our stay was this apartment. In contrast to the many apartments that are decorated in a modern style completely without character, this apartment is quite original as well as being very comfortable. The walls are covered with eighteenth and nineteenth century popular prints, and the furniture is a mixture of period styles. The kitchen, however, is large and up-to-date with all conveniences. The apartment is really meant only for a couple: There is an adequately sized master bedroom with a small bathroom and shower attached. The main bathroom, with a bathtub, is next to the living room and is more spacious. There is both a living-room and a sort of vestibule that is next to it, providing a good feeling of space.
The location of the apartment could not be better, being in the most convenient and fashionable area of the 8th arrondisement, steps away from the Champs Elysées, the rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, great shopping and restaurants, and a nearby Metro station.
The owner, Joseph, was extremely friendly and helpful, always available, and very solicitous. We would certainly rent this apartment again when we return to Paris.
We absolutely loved our experience. Joseph was so accommodating. The place was cozy, comfortable, and very clean. The kitchen appliances weren't easy to figure out. We should have asked how to use microwave. Was not a problem. We ate out and brought a few things in. The metro literally right around the corner. Small grocery 2 minute walk and an amazing bakery/patisserie 5 minute walk away. The living room acts as one of the bedrooms. Both behind doors and the beds very comfortable, loved the bedding and pillows.
We plan to return.
As we arrived at our accommodation, the apartment owned by Joseph Boudon, we were very pleasantly surprised: It was very French, decorated with Antiques and Collectables, luxuriously appointed and everything worked.
The kitchen was large and well equipped like no other we have seen. There was an abundance of everything, from French Press to large kettle, piles and piles of plates, glasses, cups, mugs, platters, great pots and pans and all in excellent quality, stainless whenever possible, and even silver "silverware" (not to be put into the dishwasher), washer, dryer, dishwasher etc.
The bedroom had a very comfortable large bed, very nice bedding, great mattress and pillows, as well as a small very convenient and efficient walk-in-closet.
2 bathrooms/toilets, wonderful large soft towels, and everything was spic and span.
Metro stop right there, very convenient for traveling to all parts of Paris. We took daily trips to certain areas in Paris and explored those. We took the Metro everywhere.
Bakery, Pharmacy, Convenient Store and Restaurants galore right around you. We found some really exquisite restaurants within a couple of blocks. The closest was in the building itself.
Joseph was very personable and helpful and we will certainly use his accommodations again next time we are in Paris.
