Once a reservation has been made and our House Rules have been agreed by you, we will send you a detailed arrival and direction document directly to your email address.

When you arrive, either myself or one of my colleague will meet you at the apartment, show you around and answer any questions you may have.

We are available by mail or phone should you have any concerns, any issues that could arise, we will endeavor to fix as soon as possible.

The neighbourhood

Rue Maitre Albert is a small one-way street, right by the river Seine and Place Maubert. You will find this neighborhood has just about everything you could need! Our favorite is the fresh market three times per week just at the end of the street at Place Maubert.

ARRIVAL DETAILS: Arrival details are extremely important to ensuring you are met promptly on your arrival day. Arrival details will be requested at the time of reservation and again, 30 days prior to arrival, and if necessary, 14 days prior to arrival. If arrival details are not provided by 14 days before arrival, we cannot guarantee a timely meeting at the apartment and you will be met when the greeter is able to fit you into their schedule. We ask that guests understand that greeters do not live in the apartment buildings and plan their schedules around your arrival details, so please be respectful of their time by providing your arrival details as early as possible and keeping us updated with any changes.
If you are arriving by PLANE, please provide: airline, flight number & scheduled flight arrival time.
If you are arriving by TRAIN, please provide: your train arrival time & train arrival station.
If you are arriving by CAR, please provide: a meeting time at the apartment.
Additionally, for guests arriving by CAR: A 30 Euro late fee will be charged to the guest for each additional hour the greeter has to wait, should the guest not arrive within a maximum of one hour of their scheduled arrival time. We advise that car arrivals add sufficient time into their planning for traffic, breaks, etc. to ensure they will be on-time to their scheduled meeting at the apartment.

CHECK-IN PROCEDURE: We make every effort to check guests in upon their arrival in Paris. We will ask you for your flight or train arrival details, email you an arrival sheet with door codes and a contact cell phone number (after full payment) and arrange to meet you at the apartment to greet you. Please note there may be guests departing on your arrival day which may alter morning meeting times; see the “Same-Day Turnovers" section below. Nearly all arrivals after 2-3 p.m. are assured of arriving at a fully-cleaned and prepared apartment.

SAME-DAY TURNOVERS: If we have guests departing the apartment the same morning that new guests arrive, then the earliest new guests may access the apartment to drop luggage and get the keys is 10 a.m. At this time, we will show you how everything in the apartment works, give you the keys, answer any questions you may have, and give you an estimate of when the clean will be completed. You may leave your luggage in the apartment and then go out exploring or for lunch and when you return the apartment at the specified time it will be clean and ready for you. Please note that all guests must leave the apartment while it is being cleaned - no exceptions, please.

GUARANTEED EARLY CHECK-IN: The only way to guarantee access to a fully-cleaned and prepared apartment for morning arrivals is to reserve the night before your scheduled arrival day. Please inquire now if you need to add a night to your reservation.

CHECK-OUT PROCEDURE: Standard check-out time is 10 a.m., meaning ALL GUESTS AND LUGGAGE must be OUT OF THE APARTMENT before 10 a.m. Requests for late check-outs will need to be arranged well in advance and an additional fee may apply. Guests are asked to please leave the apartment in tidy condition by taking out all remaining trash/recyclables, and putting all used bed linens and towels in the bathroom.

LOST OR FORGOTTEN OBJECTS: Please note that we are not held responsible for any objects that maybe left behind in the property, you are 100% liable for all your personal belongings.

KEYS: You are 100% responsible for your keys. The keys will be explained at check-in; if you leave a key on the interior of the lock cylinder - even with the other set of keys - you will be locked out!! Locksmith charges are payable by the renter directly to the locksmith, and can run up to 1500 Euros, depending on the problem, day of the week, and time of day/night. Replacement sets of keys cost between 100-200 Euros.

Lock-out fee: 50 Euros (applies only to situatons where a locksmith is not required)

PETS: We love animals, but due to guest allergies, pets are not allowed inside the apartment.

DAMAGE DEPOSIT: A refundable damage deposit of 300 Euros is required on all rentals. The amount of the damage deposit shall in no way limit the tenant's financial responsibility for damage or deterioration made to the apartment during the tenant's stay. The damage deposit will be held until you have vacated the apartment, and we have confirmed that any breakage or damage (normal wear-and-tear excluded), lost keys, out-of-the-ordinary cleaning charges and excessive phone bills have been paid for. You are responsible for maintaining the apartment in tidy condition. Apartments left in an unreasonably dirty condition in our opinion may incur additional charges to be deducted from the damage deposit. NO SMOKING IN THE APARTMENT. Smoking in the apartment will result in ZERO DAMAGE DEPOSIT REFUND.

Many thanks,
Ruben

My partner and I recommend this charming Parisian apartment highly. It was perfect for a 10 night Paris stay. The apartment was as described, and the photos accurate. It was cosy, clean and well equipped. After 10 prior visits to Paris, this was my best experience. The location is excellent: within 100 metres of the metro and a square that has a patisserie, fromagerie, butcher, seafood store, wine store, fruit and vegetable store, markets and supermarkets. All this and 5 minutes walk from Notre Dame and the romantic Ile Saint Louis. The owner, Ruben, was wonderful to deal with. we will definitely be returning, and recommending this apartment to friends.

Апартаменты очень удачно расположены, практически в самом центре, очень симпатичная квартира, но совсем не пригодна для проживания с маленькими детьми, как указано в описании. Очень огорчил тот факт, что было очень грязно и везде пыль, в том числе под кроватью такое ощущение, что не убирались несколько месяцев, а ведь этим дышим. Хотя за уборку попросили заранее 80€. Очень удивил неприятный инцидент, наш ребенок случайно разбил стекло на рамке, мы об этом сообщили хозяину Рубену, он в свою очередь попросил оплатить 100€! Откуда он взял такие цены? Мы отказались и предложили 2 варианта решения: 1. Высылаем почтой рамку по приезду домой. 2. Компенсируем 20€. На что Рубен отказался. Сейчас ждем хоть какой-то ответ.

Response from Ruben:
Hello Dmitry, Well lets start by stating you were the worst guest we have ever had to deal with. This is my first bad review I have ever given to anyone, as it is not what I like to do, but you have been way out of line. Just the first day you arrived at the flat in very bad mood and you were angry with me for no reason. Not only did you break a mirror and refuse to pay for it, you then took it away so that I was not able to buy the same again. Not only were you rude on every contact that we had. I personally greeted you, and the flat was spotless when you arrived, your comments about the flat being dirty when you arrived are untrue. However when you left the flat was is a massive state of destruct. We have NEVER ever had anyone treat a house with such ill manners. We had to take 2 full days of cleaning to repair and restore to get things back to normal. We had to move the next arriving client to another property as you left the flat in an unlivable condition. We have plenty of photos to prove so. Your clam that you gave 20€ to replace the broken mirror is absurd, in no way can you replace the same mirror for only 20€. If you can replace this for 20€ please do, we are now out of pocket for this replacement. This flat has been on for 4 years and only has excellent reviews. We will not suggest to ANYONE that they should rent to you. Kind regards, Ruben
