for Cabernet Apartment
by Gina & Joe Russo, United States
"If you are looking for the comforts of home and getting a sense of what living in Paris is like, the Cabernet is for you! And given what an apartment like the Cabernet would cost to live in, a stay at the Cabernet is like living in a Parisian dream.
We felt at home the instant we stepped into the apartment. It looked exactly as we expected from the Paris Perfect website photos, including the view of the Eiffel Tower! We loved the location on Rue St. Dominique...everything you need is on the same street.......a boulangerie and grocery store across the street, some great restaurants (Cafe Constant, Les Cocottes and Fontaine de Mars) and even the Paris Perfect office (conveniently located around the corner).
The neighborhood seems like one that people would live in....great for strolling, shopping and looking at beautiful buildings. Although there are many restaurants (some with bars), it didn't seem to be an area with a big night life scene (which was fine for us), so if you are looking for that you might be happier in a more trendy neighborhood.
Here are a few things others haven't commented on...the free wireless internet access worked great and the free phone calls were a nice bonus. The apt has great closet and storage space...we were able to move right in! The shower in bedroom has great water pressure. Loved having a washer...although it was small, it worked great; however, the dryer was terrible, but you can use the small drying rack (which I wish was bigger).....a tip... bring a few hangers to use for drying clothes because the ones in the closet cannot be removed. You're probably thinking... who goes to Paris to do laundry?? True, but we were there for 10 days and wanted to pack light so it was a great convenience. Another observation....the website says Cabernet can accommodate up to 4 people...unless you are really close, I think it's more suited to a couple or a family with 2 kids....couldn't see sharing it with another couple.
If you're going to be in Paris for longer than a few days, Paris Perfect is a great value and a fantastic, luxurious alternative to a hotel. It's easy to love Paris, but the Cabernet made the experience even better and memorable. We highly recommend it and can't wait to come back!"
