for Anjou - Place Dauphine Apartment
by David Phillips, United States
"I look back on my 10 days stay in the Anjou apartment at 25 Place Dauphine as one of the most enjoyable times of my life, certainly recent times. The apartment itself is beautiful as well as highly functional with great furniture and all the appliances needed for a comfortable, self-catering stay. A great deal of thought has obviously been put into the arrangement and furnishing. A wonderful bed. So comfortable! Great bathroom with superb plumbing and more water pressure and instant hot water than you could reasonably expect. Great heated towel rail. Very well-appointed and easy to use kitchen with espresso maker, oven/microwave combination, range, dishwasher, fridge and freezer, kettle, drip coffee maker and all the crockery, cutlery, pots and pans you could ever want. The living/dining room area is spacious, well furnished and up to date electronically. Phone with free calls. Good internet with router in the room. TV and other entertainment (which I confess I did not even turn on once as I had better things to do!). Access code to the door means you don't need to carry (and forget or lose) keys. The whole place was spotlessly clean. The apartment has three windows directly onto the beautiful Place Dauphine. There is air conditioning and heat but I needed neither. With the windows open the sounds from the Place drift in. With the windows shut it is silent. The exposed ceiling beams and the decor chosen help preserve the history of the building. That's the apartment. The location is something else. It was like staying in a wonderful village right in the historical heart of Paris. A few minutes walk to Notre Dame, a minute to the Seine and the Pont Neuf, two minutes to the metro, one minute to the nearest Velibe (rental bicycle) stand. Easy walk to,the Louvre, Musee d'Orsay, the Marais. Grocery stores within 10 minutes pleasant walk. Great restaurants just outside the front door. Wonderful specialized shops right in the Place. I can't think of a better place to stay. I am a photographer and was there mainly to take photos. I got photos that I never would have got had I not stayed there or thereabouts. I would love to stay there again. Same building. Same apartment."
