The apartment was extremely cute and comfortable for two people. It was our first time in Paris and the area is ideal if you aren't sure where to go. It is close to many subway stations and restaurants. Our plane was delayed by an hour and there was lots of traffic getting into the city so we were a little late but Martial had someone patiently waiting to give us the keys. I didn't have much phone service so because he was patiently waiting it made checkin extremely easy. The only comment I have on the apartment is that the shower is transparent glass to the kitchen area so if you are two friends staying there , showering is a bit awkward.
I stayed here for one month in September while searching for an apartment in Paris. The neighbourhood was fantastic! It's close to the old Opera and Galerie LaFayette, as well as near Pigalle. However, I would not recommend this studio for longer than one or two nights, and only if you spend a lot of time outside of the studio. It is much too small for more than one person. Also, there is some plumbing problem and eventually, the bathroom begins to smell. Since the bathroom is right next to the kitchen (only a sliding door separates the two areas), the smell carries over to where you are preparing your food. In addition, we agreed on a check-in time, and then I had to wait for 2 hours in the apartment courtyard while they cleaned the place. When I was checking out, I messaged the guy a week in advance about my check-out time and he did not respond. I emailed him the night before my check-out day and again, he did not respond. Then he called me at 3:30pm on the day I was to check-out (while I was in class), asking if I am ready. I asked, "ready for what"? He explained he had someone arriving at 4pm and needed me to leave. I explained I am in class until 5:30pm and can be out of the apartment at 7pm at the earliest. He claimed to have sent me a message the night before about being out before 4pm. He said that "AirBnb must not be working". I asked him to send me a photo of the message and of course, he said he will send it to me but never did. Overally, unpleasant experience. The person renting the studio is not the owner and it was quite difficult to get him to respond back to me (language barrier perhaps?). I had to file a complaint with AirBnb to cover myself. Overall, the smell and the lack of communication added to my stress of finding a long-term apartment in Paris and left me with a negative impression of this studio. I would not stay here again and I would not recommend it to anyone. Book this place only if you're really desperate and need a place for one or two nights in a great location!
Response from Martial:
I am very surprise about this review. Please reads other reviews about this apartment. The informations about property clearly shows the apartment is 15 square meters. I don't know what this tenant was expecting. This tenant has effectively encountered a plumbing problem because of the previous tenant (the flat was rented for several months and the check out was the same day), then we immediately send somebody to solve the problem. But this apartment is equipped with brand new materials, a brand new bed, brand new furniture store, brand new bathroom. Everything has been redone in this flat !!! This apartment has a real bathroom with big glass door to separate. It is viewable in the pictures. The tenant has to wait because the previous tenant was late for his checkout. This kind of things sometimes can happens. Because of the late checkin, and the plumbing problem we have,refund to the tenant the amount of the first night, so about 45 euros. She don't talk about this. We have a problem of communication, effectively and the guest wanted to checkout at 7 pm and didn't get my reply. Is it just if she doesn't have my reply to decide alone to checkout at 7 pm ? Have you ever seen somewhere any apartment with checkout at 7 pm without the agreement of the owner ?!!! The other owners would have charge one more night for this we didn't ! The guest effectively fill a complaint to Airbnb because she wants 2 set of keys. According to the booking informations, she was supposed to be alone. Surprise the day of arrival she is with her boyfriend and want a second set of key, but this one was not on Paris. I had to quickly do the necessary to get it, send somebody (it is not free) to take the second set of key to,the guest. When Airbnb talked to me about the complaint, I had explained that never the tenant told me they will be 2 , then the informations she filled at the booking show one tenant. It is not effectively easy to communicate with this tenant. Because of her, the next tenant has to wait 4 hours outside. Please read other reviews about this flat, you will understand this tenant is not in a objective position.
