“Very pleasant stay”
Reviewed 25 February 2014

My wife and I stayed here for three nights in February, in a one room apartment.
Firstly, the apartments are in a very good location, about 500m from Denfert-Rochereau RER station, very convenient for anyone flying into CDG. Gaite metro station is about the same distance away. The apartments are on a quiet street. There are loads of small shops, bakeries, restaurants, etc. close by.

The apartment was spotless, and large for Paris. Tea is provided for free, and there is a nespresso machine at €1 per capsule, along with a full minibar. There’s a sink, two-ring cooker, fridge and microwave in the living area. There was a large hd-tv in both the living area and bedroom. The bathroom was clearly recently renovated and impossible to fault. Staff were helpful and friendly, keeping luggage in the office after checkout and printing our boarding cards for the flight home.

My only caveat would be if you book a studio apartment. Friends of ours stayed in one of these at the same time we were there. There is a very steep staircase (almost a ladder) to the mezzanine bedroom in these. So they are not suitable for anyone with reduced mobility. This also had a concrete floor, whereas ours had nicer parquet flooring in the sitting room and bedroom.

Room Tip: There is no lift, so make sure you book on the ground-floor if you are of reduced mobility.

Want extremely friendly staff, tidy and comfortable room, for a good price? It's located pretty central and a few minutes walk from the Montparnasse stations, so it has excellent transport links. Plenty of awesome bars and eateries nearby too, making it really ideal. Will definately stay again!!

Extremely nice and friendly staff: I appreciate the free wi-fi and the little kitchen which provides an independent and homey feeling and the location, very accessible (Denfert Rochereau station, airport trains and metros)

Excellent welcome, advice and location,able to walk to the catacombs in 5 mins and we loved the nearby pedestrianised street and ability to cook for ourselves.
Great facilities in accommodation just wish we had stayed longer.

Room Tip: Don't go for the top room if you are over 6 ft, very low ceilings!

This apartment is located in Paris District 14, which is more local oriented than tourist oriented neighborhood. Short walking distance to the local market where you can get pastry, fruits and cook food to go. A good location for experiencing local life style. The Metro is also about 5 minutes walking distance. The usual tourist attractions are about 10 to 15 minutes train ride from this area. The staff are friendly and pleasant to talk to.

The free WiFi is for the public area only, but because our room is on the first floor, right at the court yard, we got somewhat good signal in our room. But because our room is next to the court yard, we got the noise of night owl residents that chat and smoke in the court yard, especially on Saturday where the chatting noise last until 2 AM, not to mention that the cigarette smoke seeping into the room. The carpet in our room is rather dirty. The staff told us that they try to clean it but was not very successful. Outside the dirty carpet, the room, kitchen, and bathroom are very clean.

Fantastic experience. Found a great deal and was welcomed with great hospitality and service. The furnishing and cleanliness was fantastic. Smelled and felt very homey. As an apartahotel, we were welcomed by a 2 bed/2 bath apartment with a living area and kitchenette. For 4 people, it was more than enough space (3 beds).

Room Tip: I had a 2 bedroom apartment.

My wife, three children and I stayed here for two days near the end of the year. This "hotel" is really more of an apartment building that is rented out on a unit basis. As such it does not have the sort of services you might expect from a traditional hotel such as a kitchen, lounge, gym etc. but that was perfect for us. Since we were in Paris for such a short time we didn't expect to spend much time in the hotel - we really just wanted a place to sleep/shower before we headed out for the day and for that this was perfect.

We rented a one bedroom apartment which had two sleeper couches in the main room. There was also a small but functional kitchen. The single bathroom, only accessible via the bedroom (which was awkward with three teenage night owls) was very well appointed with a jacuzzi tub and sauna. It also had an open shower, which led to water being everywhere in the bathroom.

The location really can't be beat - it's a 3 minute walk from metro lines 4&6, which take you to most of the most desirable tourist locations including the Eiffel Tower, Latin Quarter, Champs Elyses, Notre Dame. It's also a stop on the RER, which takes you directly to the airport. Along the way you get to walk down Rue Deguerre, which has a pedestrian area and a wide variety of shops so you can get whatever food you'd like. There is a fantastic bakery/patisserie there as well.

The service staff was very friendly. Because this isn't a traditional hotel, the staff is not there full time. Check in was at 3pm, and you could pay to have someone there earlier. Also if you needed something you had better ask for it while someone was on the premises. In our case when cleaning the room they didn't leave extra TP. When we needed more no one was there. Also it was unclear who was supposed to clean the dishes. Clearly it wasn't them. However there was no dishwasher and we were not sure if the soap was hand soap or for dishes.

All in all this was the perfect place for what we wanted/needed. Great location, slept the whole family comfortably, clean, near shopping with a kitchen we could use for breakfast/snacks.
