The best ever. Jasmine was away visiting her family, so it was left to Rafic to make us welcome. And he surely did. So friendly, relaxing and informative. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The apartment was spotlessly clean and inspiringly creative. There wasn't a thing out of place. And Paris? The best city in the world for us. Can't wait to return next year, as this apartment is well situated and amazingly quiet. :))

My wife and I stayed at this apartment 5 days and came back for another 6 days later in March. It is more like borrowing a friends apartment than renting some place set up just for rentals. Rafic is terrific. He was helpful in every way. We came as strangers and left as friends. During the last day of our first stay we learned that a Public Sector strike (one day air traffic controller strike) resulted in a cancelled airplane flight the next day. Rafic helped us change our travel plans and we were able to make the next leg our vacation by train. The pictures of the apartment are a correct representation of what you get. I like a good bed and quiet when I sleep. The apartment has a great bed and the windows keep out all the minimal street noise. We will use this apartment as our Paris base on our next trip. Thank you Jasmine & Rafic.

My friend & I had a wonderful 3-day stay in Paris, mostly due to our fantastic accommodation. Rafic (one of the owners) greeted us at the apartment & made us instantly feel welcome, showing us around the apartment & giving us loads of info about the area & Paris in general. The apartment was spacious, clean, well-decorated & very Parisian... I especially loved that the owners included a few food essentials in the fridge & cupboard - a lovely touch! The location is amazing - only a few blocks from the Eiffel Tower, walking distance to the Metro station & had many lovely cafes & shops in the surrounding streets. I would definitely book this apartment again when travelling to Paris!
