This ground floor apparment is on a street about 9 minutes walk from Gare De Nord. The area is not the best for wandering around at night due to vagrants but is OK provided you take sensible precautions, same as in any major city.
The apprtment itself is very spacious with the front door inside a shared building courtyard which itself is accessed via a key coded door from the street. Very secure. The ground floor is the main living space with the kitchen at the street end and the bathroom (inc bath, shower and toilet) at the back. It also contains a double bed on a small mezzniene above the spriral stair case which leads to the basement containing 3 more double beds and a shower room. There is even a large glass floor pannel next to the staircase so you can see into the basement area.
The appartment remained warm even without the heating on however the basement was a little damp on arrival. This was easily countered by using the dehumidifiers that were provided. Beds were comfortable and linen clean, as was the entire apartment.
The representative had contacted us about 2 weeks prior to arrival to see if there was anything we needed, arrival times etc. This was done by an online survey. She subsequently contacted us an arranged that we get in early to leave our baggage so we could trot off around the city. When we arrived she was present, freindly and very helpful, first showing us around the appartment and then giving us some advice on how to get were we planned to go that afternoon.
There are numerous shops and resturants within a short walking distance and even a well stocked mini supermarket no more that 10 meters away on the opposite side of the street.
In summary it was a comfortable, well equiped and convenient base from which to explore Paris and even though you could hear a slight rumble from the Metro in the basement it was not a nuisence, nor did it effect sleeping.
Great few days. Thank you.
