Very pleasantly surprised!
Posted Jan 28, 2017
On first impressions from the street and it's location in Paris, in the 15th by the above ground metro line, I did approach the apartment hotel with some hesitation.
Inside however, though basic and a bit characterless, the arrivals area was clean, secure, warm and tidy (and always manned).
My check in was very early and I was accommodated. After a 30 hour journey I wanted to nap but knew I had to fight off jet lag so I set off to pound the pavement and get my bearings. The Tour Eiffel is a very pleasant ten minute stroll - I could see it from my studio room - so I already had it as a navigation landmark for my wanderings.
I stayed 8 days / 7nights. All my requests for laundry/urgent suit pressing for meetings check out requests etc we're all handled eagerly and in a friendly manner. Alexis was particularly helpful. thank you.
All in all I enjoyed returning to my cozy and well laid out little studio each day. It must be stressed this is a serviced apartment, not a hotel so the trimmings of room service and room cleaning are not offered (the latter only when staying a week at a time).
A few things to consider - the proximity to the metro is fantastic - literally half a dozen steps from the front door. Downside? The trains begin quite early so if you're a light sleeper, or wrestling jet lag, it can be a bit of a problem with setting a new sleep routine....and the noise between rooms does carry. I heard a baby crying etc - it's fine m if you're rarely there though!
