Paris Apartment Guest Reviews
Look at what Paris Perfect guests are saying about us. From our apartments and personalized services to our warm welcome, we're proud to share reviews from thousands of our guests.
"The Clos Jolie apartment was everything the Paris Perfect website made it out to be, a dream come true in the heart of the 1st arrondissement. Great restaurants and markets are all over the area, and the Les Halles metro is just around the corner. We did a lot of walking to Paris Landmarks using the apartment as a base. The Louvre is only a few blocks away. Chatelet and the Marais were practically in our laps. If you don't mind a few more steps, you can walk to Ile de Cite and the Quartier Latin very easily. There are patisseries and boulangers nearby. We would return to this apartment in a heartbeat; in fact, we could live there.
Quirks about this apartment, none of which would stop me from renting it again:
- The owner put an extra level in a portion of the apartment, which added two bedrooms and a bathroom.
- The upstairs bathroom doesn't vent very well, so it is necessary to keep the door open between showers.
- The ceilings in the two-level area are maybe around two meters high. It is tall enough for most people to walk around. However, when you stand in the downstairs bathtub to shower, you have to crook your head a little to keep from hitting it on the ceiling.
- Even though the washer and dryer are new and advanced, the cycles are very slow, making it difficult to do more than one or two loads of laundry. The European style dryer (has a water collector instead of being vented) has to be emptied of water frequently.
- There can be quite a lot of noise from the courtyard, especially when the downstairs consulting firm is open (daytime) or the restaurant is open (nighttime). If you close the windows, though, you really can't hear anything.
Things that make this apartment awesome:
- While the kitchen equipment is not as good as what we have at home, the knives and pans are adequate for cooking most things you would want to. We bought a nice bamboo cutting board and left it there, because the one in the kitchen was too small. There are a market and a greengrocer around the corner. You can save a bundle by eating in.
- There are lots of power outlets.
- Everything is quite comfortable -- the sofas, the chairs, the beds.
- There are two and a half bathrooms. They are sparking new.
- The front windows open onto a typical Paris street, but not a busy one.
We are looking forward to our next visit!"

"Our apartment stay in Paris was the highlight of our trip. We were beautifully taken care of and the apartment handled five people with ease. A great neighborhood as well."
Sidney Brinckerhoff, USA
"We loved the apartment and we could not take our eyes off the view of the Tower. Everything was perfect...we'll be back!"

"We just returned from a lovely stay in the St. Amour apartment and can't say enough good things about the space and location.
We appreciated having the second bedroom to store our luggage and purchases we made during our 8 day visit. Also, it was nice to have the separate bathrooms so we didn't trip over each other!
The oversized queen bed was very comfortable from the very first night. I was impressed by how clean and orderly the whole apartment was, as well as being fully stocked with kitchen and bath needs.
The Paris Perfect folks send so much helpful information regarding nearby shops, restaurants, and sites to see that it's hard to go wrong. Every place we tried was terrific. We loved the Picard store and Cafe Constant, as well as all of Rue Cler!
We will definitely use Paris Perfect on our next trip to that beautiful City of Light."

"The Merlot apartment is beautiful. Luxurious, balcony overlooking the Tour Eiffel. Every amenity provided. The Paris Perfect staff are excellent -- friendly, accommodating, professional. We used Victor, the taxi service, to get in from CDG airport and he was wonderful: pleasant, on-time, courteous. We have absolutely no complaints and will return soon."
Darlene Fortune, Florida, USA
"We 4 gal friends from Florida were very pleased with our holiday in Paris. The prior information was complete and accurate, the staff upon arrival was helpful. The apartment was a real WOW-it was so charming, the Eiffel Tower was so magical, we did not like to leave once the lights came on!!
Paris Perfect did not exaggerate, everything was as stated, and we hope to stay with them again."
Dorene Jerz, FL, United States
"Fantastic staff and helpful! This is our 5th time renting with you and our experience was as great as ever. Thank you!"

"The apartment was as represented in the web site, although a bit smaller than it appeared. Excellent home away from home. Nice decor, TV has lots of channels and a CD player. The wrought iron balcony is a huge plus, to stand & view the scenery, but too small for sitting. Perfect view of the Tour Eiffel was fun, but a lot of street noise because it's a busy intersection. We walked to the Champ de Mars several evenings (the park under the Tour Eiffel). Rue Cler is an okay market, but the local street, Rue Saint-Dominique, is even better. King bed (for real!), quiet apt with windows closed, and kitchen is efficient for casual use. The sofa bed in the living room takes strong arms, but comfy according to our daughter. When closed as a couch, it is quite hard, and the two chairs are not for sitting long either. The tiny WC is a danger.... you'll either hit your chin on the marble mini-sink when you sit or your shoulder coming up. The main bath was just fine, great shower. Loved having the washer although the dryer didn't work. In all, we loved our stay. The Paris Perfect people were efficient, and polite. We'll certainly recommend Paris Perfect for both product and people."

"We stayed in the Bordeaux apartment for 3 weeks last October and loved the neighborhood so much that we rented the Caberet - a one-bedroom just across the street. We loved hooking up with some of the neighborhood restaurants again & the ease of transportation from the rue St. Dominique apartments. We look forward to renting again & will definitely consider the same neighborhood. Again, having a balcony looking out at the Eiffel Tower was better than we could have imagined."
Tom & Linda Dieeney, Colorado, United States
"The location was wonderful! Catherine, our greeter, was fantastic. We were still disappointed that our initial reservations were messed up. The fold out sleeping arrangements worked fine, but were very much an inconvenience. The neighborhood restaurants were great. We tried several and all had good service and delicious food. The corner place next to the apartment was a wonderful place for drinks while watching the Eiffel Tower light up."
Judy Neff, USA
"We have an on going love affair with Paris and Paris Perfect. Every time we return to Paris our hearts grow bigger along with our waistlines! The Volnay is not just an apartment, it's a true Parisien apartment located amongst the best cafes, bistros and brasseries and of course the iconic Eiffel Tower so close you can almost touch it! The team at Paris Perfect are Pros from the first 'Bonjour' to 'A Bientot' they make you feel that during your stay in one of their fabulous apartments and 'The City of Light' is a glorious one!"
Sue & Darrell Howlett, Canada
"We rented the Champagne apartment for our wedding and honeymoon, and it exceeded all of our expectations.
To view of the Eiffel Tower from your living room sofa is a once in a lifetime experience in itself. The apartment has four French doors that open to a wrap-around balcony, which is lovely for entertaining. We were able to entertain before the wedding, and enjoy it for ourselves afterward. The apartment's location is perfect. It is within walking distance of the Eiffel Tower, many bistros, the Champs Elysees, public transportation, and the Paris Perfect main office. We highly recommend Paris Perfect! :)"
Tiffany & Matt, USA
"An fine choice for our return to Paris in a new location for us. The apartment was as described in the website and is located in a convenient location to excellent dining and market choices."
Nancy & Donald Lamport, USA
"The apartment was beautiful, even better than the pictures online (which were very beautiful). The view is spectacular. We will definitely use Parisperfect again. Thank you for a very memorable Paris experience!!! Cathy H. May 2010"
"Having previously stayed in Fleurie apartment it was interesting to see the difference in style of Maranges. Perfectly located, it was very well set up to provide comfort and space. Everything was there and we felt we could move in and live there. We began making plans for what we would change to make it our home. Despite being so close to a main street it was extremely quiet and the Rue de Dragon had plenty of nearby cafes and restaurants so there was no real need to stay in for meals. If you had wanted to there were some local shops and the apartment facilities were perfect if you did need to eat in. In Paris it is always a bonus to be able to do some laundry (so expensive) and the washer and drier were put to good use. All in all, I would highly recommend this apartment."
Geoff Dunn, Australia
"Spent some ten days in our favorite city in April, and had the same excellent experience staying in a Paris Perfect apartment as we have had on five previous trips. See our 2010 review."
Patricia R. Plante, California, USA
"The weather was perfect and the location was awesome! Great view of the Eiffel Tower from the patio.
We really enjoyed waking in the quaint Parisian neighborhood, buying our baguettes and wine from the local store, and then sitting out on the small patio eating our bread and drinking our wine - of course all with a great view of the Tower a few blocks away.
The yellow bakery around the corrner (on Rue Saint-dominique) was awesome! The shopping (again on Rue Saint-dominique) kept my wife and teenage daughter busy for hours. And, the daily market vibe of Rue Cler was a highlight.
It was a perfect week! Thanks!"
Mark Platt, WI, United States
"Family of four (boys ags 9 and 14) spent one week in the Cognac apartment. Everything was as shown, comfortable, spacious, views to die for. Prior to the trip I didn't give much thought to the free wifi but it was HUGE for our kids... 14 year old staged elegant video chats with friends at home with Eiffel Tower background. Younger son used his ipad to play games... all very useful when Mom and Dad needed some down time... a nap or a glass of wine on the terrace. We only made dinner at home once but kitchen was great, and we did have breakfast and cocktails (and cheese and pate...) at the apartment daily.
Rooms and furnishings are very homey and comfortable. We really felt at home and settled in within hours. Paris Perfect staff was very helpful with details large and small and their advice, both prior to and during the trip were great in helping us feel settled and familiar with our neighborhood.
Definitely recommend Paris Perfect and will use them again as soon as I get the chance to go back!"
David Gray, New Jersey, United States
"The apartment is lovely in a really nice neighborhood - I'd highly recommend this as a much better alternative to a standard hotel stay. There is every convenience needed both in the apartment as well as on the market street, Rue Clar, where it is located. As well the apartment is beautifully located for walking to many places and the metro is only a few blocks away. I would also say that the personal hand holding the staff at Paris Perfect does is very helpful; the owners are very thorough in terms of the information about staying in the city, and generous in sharing their knowledge; and finally the referrals provided by Paris Perfect for sightseeing, transfers, and other services are to excellent contacts. I can say this as we used many of them, and were delighted. Genevieve Smith"
Genevieve Smith, California, United States
"Thank you Paris Perfect! The Cabernet apartment was exactly as shown and described on your web site. The view of the Eiffel Tower was, if anything, understated. We couldn't wait each evening for the Tower to twinkle! We loved the 7th with its markets, bakeries, wine stores, cafes and restaurants. We could not have been in a more perfect location. Cabernet was stocked with everything we needed, including some spices for the meals we cooked in.
Besides living like a Parisian for a week, our highlights were the cooking class at le violon d'Ingres and the Wine & Cheese Tasting Lunch at O'Chateau, along with the Champagne Tasting cruise later that afternoon. We are still talking about the people we met and the opportunity to meet a real Paris chef!
Thank you so much Paris Perfect for all of the great information and we also recommend Victor's Taxi.
We would not change a thing if we return to Paris!"

"Great location, incredible view, excellent experience overall. A perfect holiday."
