We were extremely disappointed when we first arrived to this apartment. He didn't leave us enough towels, and knew there were 5 adults. I even messaged before we arrived asking for extra towels and linens to which he said "no problem". There wasn't ANY toilet paper, no towels to wash/dry dishes in the kitchen, etc. I messaged him right away asking him where to find these things, and it took over 24 hours for a response. By this time, we had gone out and bought all of our own. The apartment was extremely dirty. The shower/bathroom area was moldy, had a bad odor, and was torn apart. There were PILES of dust on the headboards, and cabinets. There was rotten food in the refrigerator that smelled awful, and half drank water bottles on the counters, which we assumed were left from the people before us. The stairs leading up to the bedroom were almost BLACK with grime and dirt also.
Tony did finally message back about the toilet paper and towel situation saying he would send someone to clean and replace the items that weren't left for us, but by this time we had already made due with what we had, or bought what wasn't there, so we didn't want anyone in the apartment with our things when we weren't home.
We were told checkout time was 11:30, but without warning, we heard a knock on the door at 10:30 am as we were all sitting having breakfast and a cup of coffee, and it was a man with bags who told us to be out by 11. Tony said this was his cleaning lady's husband, and he was just bringing fresh towels, but we had NO WARNING of his arrival, and he spoke no English, so he just kept telling us to be out by 11. So we had to rush and finish packing and get out.
That being said, the apartment was in a great location, very close to restaurants, shopping, and subway/trains. Within a 20 minute walk of Arc de Triumphe. We were disappointed with our apartment stay, but we had a wonderful time in Paris nonetheless. Would we stay at that apartment again? ABSOLUTELY NOT, but did we have a fantastic time, yes we did!
