A Breathtaking View of Eiffeltower – Paris Skies
A breathtaking view of Eiffel Tower – Paris skies — “Atelier” studio overlooking the rooftops of Paris
Everyday the unmistakeable feeling of the aura of Paris greets you with your first look out the window of this 6th floor “atelier” studio. The …
The apartment was perfect in both location and amenities. We were walking distance to many landmarks and attractions, as well as metro stations (Vaneau and Sevres Babylon). The sofa bed was very comfortable (queen size) and the kitchen was well equipped for making meals. Our view of the Eiffel Tower was beautiful, especially in the evenings. The construction across the street started early in the morning, sometimes at 6am, but it wasn't bothersome with the windows closed. We actually enjoyed watching the progress while enjoying our morning coffee. The owner has thoughtfully provided several convenient items, including umbrellas, a hairdryer, an alarm clock, and a stereo with many CDs to choose from. Bring your own travel size shampoo/conditioner/soap or purchase from the nearby markets. For those traveling from the US, make sure to bring your converters/adapters if you wish to use your own electronics. The internet connection was fast and reliable. There is also a television but we did not really spend time watching it. The building was quiet--we never heard noise from neighbors. The apartment was clean and cozy. The neighborhood and surrounding area was safe. Definitely a worthwhile stay and we will enjoy coming back and staying here again in the future. Highly recommended.
My wife and I stayed at #33049 from August 2-16, 2013, and we are very glad that we did. The flat is well positioned in a safe area of Paris, very near the Metro (Vaneau and Sevres Babylon), markets (Bon Marche and Carrefour), bicycle rental, a wonderful street market (Sundays, Tuesdays, and Fridays), and many wonderful shops, wines stores, and so forth. The flat is cute, romantic, maximizes space, comfortable, and equipped including with all the second nature little things (tissue, towels, soaps, uv protection creams, teas, condiments, utensils of all types, music, books, and so on and so forth) that otherwise can be such a nuisance to have to locate and purchase when you first arrive, often tired, at a new place. We went out of our way to restock things as we were leaving, so others can have the same good feelings we had. Everything worked, and the sofa bed was literally like a good hotel bed. (We are now looking to buy one like it for our house.) 5 friends of ours stayed at a larger, much more expensive flat while we all were in Paris. Their elevator was comically small as was ours and others we saw in Paris. However, they did not have the thoughtful extras we had in abundance, their furniture kept breaking, and we all kept meeting at our flat, which though smaller had a magical intimacy that led to fun times, good food and music, and good conversation and memories. Owner was easy to deal with and her on site representative, Adele, was wonderful, dependable, and available. Overall, it was great, and we are smiling and grateful.
Where else could you get a top floor window view of Paris in a great location which is affordable? It is on the 6th floor(would be called 7th floor in US), and the buildings across the street have fewer floors, making the city view possible over them. It is larger than a hotel room and has all the amenities to make an extended stay comfortable and practical. There are 3 grocery stores within a few minutes. The cranes and construction are a non-issue. The workers don't come early or stay late, they don't work on weekends. Any normal city has many more cranes and construction than this. We never heard them. This was a great place to access the trains and busses to visit Paris attractions and to make day trips out of the city. The apartment is prepared well, shower appears newly remodeled, appliances seem newer, and stocked with everything a traveler needs. It is not like a five star resort hotel, good thing because then it would be crazy expensive. The view is amazing at sunset and nighttime as well, it made for a special visit. The owner and local manager were helpful and easy to work with, no issues with deposit or anything. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your property.
My wife and I arrived in Paris on our honeymoon and were so pleased to have such a comfortable apartment in the 7th for ten days. Our hope was to have place to serve as home-base while we traveled across the city. It was such a convenient location and just the right size for us. We were across the street from two metro stops (Babylone and Vaneau), Le Bon Marche and the Grande Épicerie, and there were two convenient grocery stores down the block. We had everything we needed - enough kitchen supplies, ample space for a city apartment, table space to spread out our maps and books, and every night, after a long day exploring the city - we slept pretty soundly on the sofa bed.
The local manager was EXTREMELY helpful when we had some internet issues, making two trips to the apartment to make sure we were set up alright. He even made some recommendations for cafes, museums, and other activities from a local perspective. We really appreciated his extra help.
We loved the view from our window with a view of Tour Eiffel and the golden dome of Les Invalides. The construction across the street at the former Laennec Hospital was a surprise, but I looked at it as a chance to see the "Paris 7 Rive Gauche" project - one of the largest renovation projects in the last 50 years in Paris. I found it as interesting as the rest of the city life.
Overall, we loved our stay and have so many memories we still talk about - my wife riding the tiny elevator in her wedding dress, making a homemade dinner then watching the Tour Eiffel's top-hour- light show and how much we felt like we were part of a Parisian neighborhood.
This was our first stop on a three-week belated honeymoon trip and it was the perfect place to acclimate to the new climate and 10 hour time change. The apt was so cozy, and even the littlest touches like the TSF Jazz station set on the radio, the book shelf of travel information, and nespresso machine created a lovely space for us to rest and relax. We both loved our stay here, and would certainly recommend to others or stay again if we were to return.
Memories that sum up of our stay - viewing the rooftops of Paris from this 6th floor studio: candle light dinners facing the sparkling Eiffel Tower in the distance, classical music to play in the background and only a few steps away the Metro.
This studio is a welcoming, charming and a well designed space that offered us a comfortable stay in the center of Paris. All was possible just a few steps away from the Metro Sevres Babylon. The steady rainfall did not disturb our visit; we thought, what matters ? We can enjoy our evening here.
We spent our days below investigating the city and our evenings with a glass of red wine over-viewing the city from the 6th floor. This is not a luxurious suite, but the website photos give completely its atmosphere. This is a place for romantics with a taste for beauty. Beyond that the location of this charming place is phenomenal. Everything one needs (and more) is before the door: foods of all kinds, bakeries, cafes, luxury and bargain fashions, small parks, specialty shops and public transportation. And, by foot you may reach some amazing places within a short distance : Rodin Museum, St. Germaine de Pres, Place de Odeon and St. Sulpice and a bit further the Luxembourg gardens, Blvd. St. Michel and even Notre Dame at the Seine, among others.
It is clear that I would definitely choose again to stay at this apartment.
Czarina's home is a gem in the heart of Paris. For our first visit to Paris, we had access to what felt like the most ideal metro stations that linked the city, and the view of the Eiffel Tower from the window was marvelous to see twinkling at night. We really appreciated the assistance of the caretaker in making the stay comfortable and the travel efficient to and from the train station. Was a delight to interact with him. In addition to the accommodations, the location was perfectly located across from a fantastic grocery store, with access to fresh food and ready-made sandwiches for our trips into the city. Our love of espresso was more than satisfied with access to a nespresso machine in the home and with access to a nespresso retail store conveniently located just a few blocks away to purchase coffee. Made the mornings feel just like home.
We would certainly plan for a future stay, and our only note is that the construction across the street (which is likely wrapping up) was noisy in the morning. We appreciated that Czarina made note of this before our arrival and that she made the stay easy for us, allowing us to focus on enjoying the landmarks of the city.
The apartment was cozy, clean, and comfortable. We enjoyed our stay there and were well taken care of by the owner who was very kind and responsive. The surrounding neighborhood is wonderful with many places to eat, drink, and shop. We hope to return very soon.
I stayed in this apartment for six weeks, and believe me it was six of the worst weeks I've ever had in Paris. First, the construction occurring across the street is a nightmare. It starts every morning before 7 a.m. and is so loud that it is impossible to sleep through. Thankfully, they take Sundays off. But the worst part is that the apartment is literally falling apart. All of the electrical fixtures in the apartment are loose. The shower doors don't close. The shower drain is a rusted-through mess. Half of the lights don't turn on. There's no heat whatsoever in the "toilet" (an airplane-lavatory-sized room just off the front door -- the shower is actually behind the kitchen, hidden in the photos on here by large blinds). The windows overlooking the street do not open or close properly. The WiFi is actually piggybacked from another apartment in the building (is this legal in France?) And then there's the sofabed.I was informed it was damaged when I arrived and had issues with sticking and not extending into the bed. It was to be fixed or replaced within a couple of days, I was told. Nothing was fixed or replaced at all during the entire six weeks I was there. There also are huge bags of dirty laundry stuffed in the alcove near the front door, and they stink to high heaven. AVOID THIS RENTAL! I wish I had.
My fiance and I much enjoyed this studio in August. We celebrated our anniversary in Paris enjoying our own special view of the Eiffel Tower every morning with cafe au lait from the Nespresso machine. We especially appreciated the light spectacles of the Eiffel Tower in the evening with a glass of red wine.
Of course we observed the construction work across the way. However, informed in advance, we knew that this would also be part of the view. The Paris skies beyond could still amaze us. During our stay in Paris we spent most of the time out discovering the city. Due to the perfect location this was possible by foot, by bus and by metro. Moreover, the area near St. Germain de Prés was amazing and a good starting point.
To sum up, from our point of view the studio has its own very French character, especially, for couples who wants to have a romantic stay. We liked the mix of modern and antique elements. We would suggest this studio for anyone who enjoys a romantic view of the city. We look forward to the next opportunity to stay in Paris in this studio.
We were looking for an authentic Parisian apartment for a one month stay, one that was more than just a place to eat and sleep. This studio apartment provided the ambience we had hoped for and it often made us think of the painters and poets who flourished in places like this. Such wonderful light from the skylights and the inspired view of the city. Or perhaps La Boheme comes to mind, except that we were never cold. Or too warm for that matter.
The desciption of the apartment and neighborhood are very good! No surprises and we also found ourselves fascinated with the major and imaginative building project across the street. it reminded us that this is a changing and dynamic city no shortage of architectural dreams. The elevator was dependable and very welcome for this sixth floor location, but we liked to walk down using the classic twisting stairscase. We slept well and without interruption. The kitchen served us well and we even
had a few guests who were envious of our place as they were not so pleased with their own.
Yes, we would recommend this apartment to friends. We should mention the very pleasant and
helpful young man who explained the details to us and was only a phone call away should we have a problem, but we never did.
Pictures of Eiffel Tower that were a main reason for booking this apartment failed to show the 6 large construction cranes right outside the window. There has been major construction going on across the street for some time, and will continue for at least another year and a half (accordording to site supervisor). We cannot understand why previous two recent reviewers failed to mention this in their comments. Unfortunately, we only found out about this AFTER we had paid our final rent installment. Owner tried to alleviate our concerns by saying noise would not be a problem, however, work would start at 7:00 each morning until 6:00 in the evening, and during this time if you wanted to carry on a conversation or watch TV or listen to radio, you had to close the windows! In addition, and even earlier, were the refrigerated trucks parked outside making deliveries a 5:00 each morning, to the large grocery store across the street next to the construction site.
A lot of books in the apartment, but they are old and dusty.
Bathroom sink is the size one would see in an airplane, with cabinet above that made for a few bumped heads while trying to wash up in the morning. Sink shared a room with the toilet, and the shower was separated from the kitchen by a sliding woven divider (see picture of kitchen in the ad - on right side of picture). Picture of what we assumed was bathroom, is actually glass shelves with mirror behind reflecting shower stall.
Other than new sofa bed and TV, other furniture was uncomfortable and old. Kitchen and shower are updated.
Elevator, as mentioned by previous guests, is very small (actually 4.5 square feet) - enough room for two average size people. Don't know that a handicapped person and a wheel chair would fit.
Location was very good. Close to Metro and bus stops, and easy walking to many sites and areas.
We were at this apartment for the month of June 2012, and while thoroughly enjoying the sights and sounds of Paris, would select a different apartment for future visits (this is our 5th visit to the city).
