We had a fabulous stay at the Apartment. It is exactly as it looks. Chira is an exceptional host and very flexible and accommodating. We enjoyed a great time, found a fantastic restaurant called La Coincidence on the same street. We will return. Many thanks Chira.
We stayed in the Victor Hugo apartment for one week in September. The apartment is spacious and the pictures give a pretty accurate representation of what to expect. The apartment is well equipped. Everything worked well with the exception of the clothes dryer which, as is explained in the instructions in the apartment, is not the kind we in the states are used to and operates very very slowly. It was not a big deal for us. The washer has a very good spin cycle and we would just hang our clothes up to dry. We enjoyed the neighborhood we were staying in as it was less touristy than others we've stayed in. There are numerous restaurants, food markets and boulangeries in easy walking distance. There were two things about the apartment that we wished were different. One, is that it is on the ground floor and has a single window. We knew about these beforehand. The result of this was a lack of privacy and little ventilation. The other thing was the noise coming from the restaurant next door and from the floor above. While neither was excessive it didn't quiet down until around 11 or 12.
The location of the apartment was within walking distance sites, stores, restaurants and everything that you would need. The apartment had all the comforts of home. It was better then staying in an actual hotel.
