BOB to rent this apartment
My wife and I stayed for nearly two weeks over Christmas and New Years. The apartment was better than we had expected. It was a pleasant surprise to find not just a hair-drier, but also a hot-water pot, coffee-maker, coffee-filters, and enough dishes and cutlery for us.
The location is nice, a short walk distance to both Metro and Bus lines, and very close to the daily market on Rue Mouftard.
Axelle, one of the managers, met us at the apartment on-time, despite our flight being delayed over two hours. She was well prepared, and showed us where everything was including the garbage. She also helped me connect to the wifi.
TV, Wi-Fi, and VoIP phone all worked perfectly. We used the VoIP phone several times to make reservations, check for open hours, and even call back to the States. No problems.
The only negative is that you are on the GROUND floor, right near the street. You can hear a LOT of street noise. It does calm down later in the evening, but if you are a light-sleeper or need silence, this is NOT the place for you. We had no troubles once jet-lag wore off.
We would stay here again, and recommend this apartment for singles or couples who are not bothered by street noise.
