While my husband and I kept joking about the 4th floor walkup (3rd floor in European standards) that lay at the end of our madcap five city trip, it turned out better than expected. The staircase is a small, dark, narrow wooden spiral, but there's a timed light you can turn on going up or down. The fuse for this went out while we were there, but was fixed in a day.
The apartment itself is very clean and excellently spaced out. It's not huge, but everything fits, and the shower/washer area is quite spacious. With a rain head shower! The location is quite nice, tucked away from a couple of major streets that get you to everything you need: supermarkets, bakeries, chocolatiers, Metro stop, parks, cafes, boutiques, etc. You can easily venture off to the smaller streets, away from the hustle and bustle, and discover excellent restaurants and stores off the main road. It really makes you feel like a local, which is exactly what we wanted.
Hannah from Paris Sharing met us on time, checked-in to make sure we arrived safely (there were train issues and strikes that week), and suggested a great local bakery (Miss Manon), where we got a delicious loaf of bread. Everyone at this agency is responsive and helpful and I would definitely use it again!More
