My wife and I were so pleased with our 1 bedroom apartment overlooking the Seine River and the view of the Eiffel Tower. The location was excellent. Right at the bottom of the steps of the Passy station. As you face the river Seine, a Thai restaurant is to your right and the Eiffel Kennedy Patisserie-cafe is on your left. You walk two doors left of the Patisserie café on President Kennedy Avenue and Voila ! You are there! So easy. We were given a security code to enter the lobby of the building. Michel is there at the apartment to greet/meet you and show you how to operate all the appliances, TV, phone, etc. in the apartment. He is so wonderful and helpful, a real asset to Paris Sweet Home. He lives nearby if you need any help. But the apartment has everything clearly typed and explained (how to operate) on everything throughout the apartment, too. Free phone calls. How to use the phone. What to dial for emergencies, etc. How to operate the clothes washer and electric dryer, the dishwasher, the stove, the microwave, etc. In the closet is also a drying rack and tons of clothes pins.
The kitchen is amazing! From the garlic press; to the cheese grater; wine bottle opener; expresso machine; coffee maker; hot water kettle; a “dust buster” counter-top vacuum next to the toaster for picking up crumbs; dishes, cutlery,utensils, knives, spatulas, scissors, casseroles, baking pans, pots, frying pans, serving trays, placemats, cups, glasses, and even a grocery shopping pull-cart.
The bathroom has the most lovely Devon & Devon ceramics sink/vanity, towel heater-racks, and toilet. The burgundy colored, claw-foot tub was great to relax in. It had the most beautiful tiles artisticly painted with flowers and pixies, mood-lighting (colored-lights rotating) and even ZEN scented air freshener. The hallway also had an auto air-freshener every time you passed the entry. Very lovely. So relaxing.
The living room sofa is new and I could watch the 9PM colorful “ sparkling-dancing electric lights” show run up and down the Eiffel Tower each evening. Or we could also see it from the dining table. An excellent view and location.
During the daylight hours, we enjoyed watching the riverboats, barges, tour-dinner boats, and Batobus, go up and down the Seine River. We could also see the Merry-Go-Round with it’s lights on. And we even saw the tourists riding up the elevator and walking around the second level of the Eiffel Tower. We could walk everywhere easily, but the number #72 metro bus stopped right in front of our apartment, so often we hopped on ( bought a Carnet of Billets = 10 Metro tickets to use on any Metro bus or train) and rode along this perfect bus line to Notre Dame Cathedral, Eiffel Tower, Louvre, museums, cafes, stores, malls, and the line ends at City Hall/Hotel du Ville. Then the same #72 bus turns around the corner and heads back to the apartment along the beautiful River Seine drive. So nice.
Above the Passy Station, walk one block to the best avenue: Rue de Passy with the fantastic bakery/deli where we bought lasagne, sandwiches, soups, quiches, and every dessert imaginable! Bakery is at 6 Rue de Passy avenue. Continue and stay on Rue de Passy...Go one more block left of the bakery on Rue de Passy and you arrive at Monoprix grocery and toiletries and clothes. Stay on Rue de passy, go a couple more blocks left of the bakery (cross over to opposite side of street) and you see Inno, the best mall and grocery supermarket! They have everything and every country’s foods, even Taco Bell taco shells and Skippy peanut butter!
We were so happy with our Paris Sweet Home apartment that we booked it again for this summer July 2012. Can’t wait to go back! We highly recommend this apartment!
Merci for everything!
My mom and I stayed at the Plaisance Studio in Paris for 5 days in January and we liked the experience a lot. The location of the apartment is fantastic, there are 2 subway stations nearby, which means you can get anywhere pretty easily. There is also a main avenue a few blocks from the apartment, where you can take the bus, which sometimes we did, since Paris is a place where you shouldn't stay underground...There are supermarkets, bakeries, restaurants, and cafes all at a walking distance from the studio; you'll never feel hungry.
Although the location is great, make sure to get very clear directions from the manager since it's a small street which you cannot find in the maps and people don't seem to know it. But once you're there, you'll see that it pays off, because the area is very quiet and residential.
Regarding the studio itself, we found it pretty nice. The pictures from the website are quite accurate. The studio is located on the ground floor, which means you don't have to climb stairs with heavy luggage: a huge plus! The room is not so small, there are 2 double beds, a small table with chairs, a TV and a stereo. The bathroom and the kitchen are quite small though. And since there's no ventilation in the bathroom, there's some mold in some areas.
The manager is very helpful, we had a problem with the hotplate but the minute we told him he bought a new one and took it to the apartment. We also asked for a late checkout and he said it was OK. All in all, however, we liked the studio and didn't regret having rented it.
Juiz de Fora, Brazil
The owner is a charming woman and nothing was a trouble for her.She was most helpful.The apartment is in need of some loving care.The cooktop elements didn't work and a portable cooktop was sitting on top. We could only get one of the elements to work.There was a dishwasher but we were told it had never worked. The TV. did not work at all but the owner gave us another one with a defective arial socket which often came unplugged resulting in no picture .It was a constant problem. The paint on the ceiling was peeling everywhere. There was a heater in the bathroom with a sign on it "Don't use, dangerous". On the plus side the market at the front door two days a week is first class and the apartment is a good size with good natural light.I wouldn't stay there again unless some work was carried out to remedy the problems.
Dear Sir, we've had a great, very nice the owner, we facilitated the entry and exit of the dept. and was always attentive to what we needed, this made our stay very pleasant, although there are four floors to climb the location is unbeatable and I take this instance to send cordial greetings, hoping to return at another time.
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Excellent sejour, calme, sur, proche commerce et metro. Accueil tres affable
The eight night stay in the Montparnasse-4 was great. When staying in an apartment instead of a hotel in a country that has such a rich history, you are absorbed into the everyday life of local Parisians. The area itself is great, in the 14th Arrondissement. Local markets, patisseries and main streets are just a few minutes away. The Plaisance metro is a few minutes away, and the Paris metro is wonderful, compared to London and other major cities. You may take the metro to any areas of Paris, but I highly recommend walking as much as possible so you can enjoy the scenery and history and after becoming a bit tired, you can come back home and enjoy a bit of wine.
The apartment itself is very nice, with artistic paintings and pictures on the wall, the choice of wood in the bathroom mirror cage, are all thought out well. Plenty of books and guides as well as free WiFi to keep you finding out where you are going to go next in the wonderful city of Paris. Catherine & Jean-Michel Tremblay have made the apartment feel like a second home and that will keep you coming back and feeling good about your stay there. The transaction was smooth from the first day to the last day and the emails were constant and always quick.
Overall, I am very happy that I made a stop in Paris from my travels in Europe and stayed in this apartment. I highly recommend it and would no doubt come back to the same place again if I go to Paris again.
We stayed here for 7 nights and the location was fantastic. We were 5mins walk to the Notre Dame, and also close to many of the other attractions. As we like walking it was no problem to walk to the Louvre. If we did decide to catch the metro is was close. The apartment was roomy and very clean. Great having a separate kitchen area. The 109 steps was ok and was good to exercise off the extra beautiful food. Close to a wonderful Boulanger and also supermarket really close. Some excellent local restaurants nearby. Loved the locations, the area, beds were comfortable and never had a problem with WIFI. Overall definitely will go back and more than happy to stay in this conveniently located, comfortable, roomy and clean apartment. The owners were very helpful and would definitely book through Paris Sweet Home again. Thanks for a fantastic time in Paris and beautiful memories.
We enjoyed our stay at Greneta Montorgueil very much. The apartment was in good condition, particularly the bathroom which had clearly been upgraded recently. The surrounding area is an excellent place to stay as it is near to tourist areas, shopping, but also cafe's and restaurants that Parisians use. We were dealt with well by Paris Sweet Home who were always swift to provide us any assistance.
London, United Kingdom
The apartment is conveniently located a 10 minute walk from the Opera House, 20-25 minutes from the Louvre and 5 minutes from the metro. There are plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The apartment is clean, the wi-fi worked perfectly, the shower water was always hot and Made and Pierre (the apartment owners) were extremely kind and helpful. I would definitely recommend this apartment rental to a friend.
New York, USA
We did have a great time in Paris. One of the positive aspects of our apartment were the location.
We felt very safe on Rue Delbet.
We enjoyed the fact that the neighborhood was a family oriented area. Grocery stores were nearby and the brasserie just a block from home. We also liked the close location to two metro lines, making it easy to get out and go in the morning to see the sights.
The apartment was a good size for our family, we were very comfortable and the kids loved the TV as it gave them a way to wind down after a busy day of sightseeing. Another positive aspect as that we never felt cold in our apartment.
We were worried that, coming at Christmas, the apartment would be cold. But the heating system worked very well as did the hot water for showers.
The low price for this apartment made this trip possible for our family. Mr. Widana was very kind and we have wonderful memories of our time in Paris.
