“Lovely apartment, convenient central location, helpful manager”

This studio is conveniently located just off the Avenue de Opera midway between the Opera and the Louvre, a few minutes walk to the Louvre, Opera, Tuilleries, and other famous attractions. The apartment is quite nice. The main room has a real bed (not a fold-out couch, in fact no couch at all), a dining table and chairs, an armoire, a TV, a phone, and a wall containing a small but fully equipped kitchen. The bathroom is huge with a tub, a great shower, and a very small washer/dryer combo. The bathroom sink is a bit tricky and the w/d was difficult to figure out, but the owner, who conveniently lives upstairs, was extremely nice and helpful with everything. Wi-fi internet access on a fast network and free phone calls to the States (and elsewhere) are included.

After seeing the contracts for other studios, I was especially pleased with the contract for this one. It was very simple and clear; written in plain English. We made a partial payment upon booking, but there was no additional security deposit required. Also, the owner is from the US so there was no language problem. (Her husband is French, so no problem for French-speakers either.) She asked us to call when we arrived at the airport so she could meet us at the apartment and was very gracious when our flight arrived at 5:30am. She also kept our luggage while we waited for the apartment to be cleaned. I had a couple of special requests which she was very willing to accommodate. It was a good experience.

If I were to return to Paris I would definitely want to stay at Ben Franklin's Hideaway again.
