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.
"We just returned from our second stay with Paris Perfect and it was even better than our first. We spent 6 lovely days in the St. Julien with our 20 year old son and 16 year old daughter and had plenty of room, as well as private space. The apartment is as beautiful as the pictures, and the location cannot be beat. More importantly, the service from the Paris Perfect staff is outstanding. I am now enthusiastically recommending Paris Perfect to all of our friends and colleagues. I don't know yet when we will be able to return to Paris, but we will definitely stay with Paris Perfect. Thank you!"

"We really appreciated the use of the telephone as we had two emergencies at home. We were able to resolve both and continue enjoying our vacation. Thank you so much and we look forward to returning!"
"Cabernet was adorable and perfect. We absolutely loved staying in this apartment. It is quaint and charming with a marvelous location. It is everything we would possibly want."
Janet G, USA
"We have rented apartments in Paris many times before, but not from ParisPerfect. Without a doubt, they are the best organized and customer focused company I have dealt with. Our apartment was exactly as advertised. All things we might need were there, including little things like a cable to connect an iPod/iPhone to the stereo system and several very nice CDs and DVDs.
They even provided a book covering the operation of all the appliances, which actually is quite handy since they are different from those in the US.
The 7th is truly a very special area in a very special city. It must be one of the safest areas in a very safe city. Also, the restaurants and food store within yards of this apartment are some of the best in Paris. The guide book posted on line is excellent, even for folks like us who have been to Paris many times and for long stays."

"My husband and I have had a wonderful time. Thank you for thinking of every detail. The Volnay apartment is charming and well-equipped. Your welcome basket with water, wine juice, milk, coffee capsules was especially thoughtful. we have been visiting Paris for 30+ years and have been renting apartments for the last five. This one was clean and attractively decorated with a great bath including a decent hair dryer and good lighting. It was nice to have the washer and dryer. My only suggestion would be a second set of towels - but it's a relatively minor thing. Thanks for your contribution to a great vacation. Will recommend you to our friends and come back to rent again."
Peggy & Don, USA
"The apartment was fantastic! The reference book terrific and the gift of wine and biscuits thoughtful. We loved it! We will be back. Oh, and that view! Sensational!! Thanks guys. Paris perfect, our stay was perfect. p.s. An Australian complaint adapter would have been good, otherwise the apartment was outfitted perfectly ."
"It has been almost a month since we stayed in your beautiful Cognac apartment in Paris and we still cannot get over how much we enjoyed our stay. We were a family of 7 (mom and dad, 2 sons aged 15 and 10, 2 parents-in-law and 1 sister-in-law) taking a two-week vacation in London and Paris. We've always rented condos when we travel a week-long to London, Rome, Paris, San Francisco and NYC and rented summer cottages for the San Diego, Rehoboth and Carolina beaches. Weï¿½ve even once rented a houseboat in Amsterdam. The only times we stayed in hotels during our vacations were for our Disneyworld, FL trips and when we toured Hong Kong and Tokyo -- for obvious communication hassles. We're definitely NOT newbies when it comes to renting apartments.
Believe me then, (Attention: tourists and potential apartment-seekers!) when I say that ParisPerfect is, hands down, the best agency we've had. It's too bad that I'm just a housewife and a volunteer at my sons' school. I have nobody to whom I can tout our wonderful experiences in your apartment. But do please use this recommendation letter as you see fit or add it to your Guestbook for references.
From the moment our greeter, Kevin, met us at the door to our drive back to the train station by your company-recommended chauffeurs, we have no complaints. In the walkthrough around the apartment, Kevin was very thorough in explaining how things operated.
We so appreciated how the dishwasher, laundry machine and dryer were all numbered for easy use. That was brilliant thinking! I wish all the other rental agencies practiced this! In all our 8 apartment rentals in Europe, we finally got a laundry machine AND dryer to work without having to first take an engineering exam. I loved the full-size fridge and the lovely range and I was able to prepare my family's favorite comfort food for dinners. There were enough dishes and silverware so we didn't have to run the washer after every meal.
My mother-in-law and sister-in-law admired the prepared table settings so much that they were ready to sit down and dine when we first arrived at the apartment. On the other hand, my husband, boys and father-in-law gravitated towards the awesome view of the Eiffel Tower from the balcony. They immediately posed for and took pictures with their digital cameras. Me? I was just too tired from all the previous sight-seeing in London that I locked myself in the luxurious bathroom and soaked my poor legs and feet in the tub.
We were also pleasantly surprised that there was free long distance phone call to the US but I'm glad that my husband didn't know about that till we arrived or else he would have been doing business while we were on vacation! (Sigh. The pros and cons of modern communication!) The wi-fi worked and so did the TV, according to my children. I was just glad that the elevator worked for my in-laws have a hard time walking 6 flights of stairs. I know that the small dimension of the elevator is so typical in French apartments that we even took a picture of it as a memento.
The beds were all comfy, thank you! The pull-out twin beds and the sofabed in the living room were a breeze to get ready at night. The sheets and towels were clean and plenty and I didn't have to use my emergency sheets/towels that I typically pack with me when we travel.
As for apartment location? Nobody could ask for anything better. We've stayed before in the Montparnasse area, the Bastille area and the Trocadero area, but we much prefer to stay again in the 6th arrondissement. We liked the accessibility to the stores of Rue Cler, the patisserie downstairs where we got our fix of pains aux raisins in the mornings, the Asian traiteur along the street, the Ecole Militaire metro, and the bus stops near our building.
The buses were truly a find! There were buses nearby that brought us to Musee Rodin, Invalides, Musee D'Orsay, Charles De Gaulle Etiole and Champs Elysees, Eiffel Tower (dropped us right in front, too!), and Bon Marche (for shopping). The apartment was absolutely convenient -- and safe to boot -- without the hurly-burly atmosphere of an apartment located in, say, the Latin Quarter.
Lastly, I have to tell you that there was another family who joined us in Paris. They are very close friends of ours and our boys are all of the same ages so we often go on trips, in the US and abroad, together. Unfortunately, they did their planning for the Parisian vacation at the very last minute so they had no choice but to stay in a reputable American chain hotel (that I shall not name here) in Trocadero. The four of them were cramped in one family room with just a teeny-weensy fridge and a TV on top of the fridge. There was barely enough space to walk between beds and there was absolutely no corner for privacy or quiet reflection after a long day. Really! I love family togetherness but sometimes, you need not only physical space but an emotional space to retreat in and just simply absorb the Parisian ambiance. The balcony in the apartment gave us that. We'd sit out there quietly and gaze at the sunset and the Eiffel Tower and just breathe.
We've been hiding our pictures of our stay in the apartment from our family friends lest we sound too smug or gloating.
Thanks so much! I'm definitely looking forward to using your agency in the future. I'm planning another trip -- just us four this time -- for Christmas time. I'm thinking we should try Rome again to see how it is during the festive holiday season but I'm sorely tempted to go back to Paris and stay in one of your apartments once more."

"We could not have had a more Paris perfect 30th wedding anniversary experience. Our Volnay apartment was just fabulous, very chic and french yet with every possible touch provided to ensure that we felt at home and relaxed. At night we had views to the sparkling Eiffel tower. In the morning we went down the street to the Boulangerie, greeted by the nicest most welcoming french people, despite our 'beginners' french. They chatted, smiled and patiently assisted us every morning. The local restaurants run by Christain Constant are amazing, fabulous food, wine and the nicest staff we have met in a long time. I want to live there. We can only wish that visitors to Sydney get such a welcome!
Lisa Buros provided advice and tips to help us plan the week...the wine tasting, the restaurants, the cooking class and market tour and the Eiffel tower private tour...all perfect! Would recommend the whole experience...could not have been a more perfect week in Paris...worth the 30 years of waiting. Thankyou all so much."

"We were very pleased with the Romanee apartment and everything about the experience of renting an apartment with Paris Perfect. The apartment was well decorated and very comfortable as well as equipped with dishes, silverware,and anything we needed. The apartment was very well situated. The nearness to the Eiffel Tower was amazing, but in addition everything we needed was near by, e.g. ATM, buses, food stores. The Paris Perfect staff was responsive to our questions. Renting an apartment instead of staying in a hotel made the trip very special and enjoyable. I will definitely recommend Paris Perfect to friends."
Marilyn Neibart, New Jersey, USA
"We just loved our precious apt. It was a great experience because you felt like you were truly part of the parisan life style. Also it was so nice to have all the delicious cafes and bakeries right down the block. We loved paris and can not wait to go back I will definitely use paris perfect services in the future."
Kay Roy, USA
"Our family with two teenage daughters stayed for one week at the beautiful Champagne Apartment.
We travelled on the Eurostar and were collected by Victor's taxis at Gare du Nord - so easy!
The beautiful apartment was ideal for us - so close to all the main attractions in Paris.We filled our week with so many memories including lunch up the Eiffel Tower, taking a river cruise down the Seine buying cheaper tickets from the Paris Perfect representatives. A trip out to Versailles. We ate our meals on the balcony overlooking the Eiffel Tower - magic!
Thank you for making it such a memorable stay.We will be coming back soon."
Helen Jarrold, UK
"The Clairette Apartment was perfect, in location, in ammenities, in furnishings, in comfort and in charm.
Very well located for the day to day shopping needs, proximity to a taxi stand and dining. Relatively convienent for Metro, and very close for Eiffel Tower visiting.
The rooms are 'smaller' than what it appears on the web site, but still roomy. As a two person visit, there was more than enough room...and although the sleeper couch will accommodate two more, that would feel cramped. The kitchen is a one person chef size, but has all of the modern appliances. The convenience of having a built in washer/dryer combo should not be overlooked. And, it's a real special perk to be able to make USA phone calls from the room without charge.
Without hesitation, we would recommend Paris Perfect and the Clairette in particular."
David Sydney & Pam Fierro, California, United States
"Saint Romain could not have been more perfect. The neighborhood and apartment both lovely and inviting. The bathtub was great for soaking after a long day of wandering the neighborhhods of Paris. Most importantly the staff at Paris Perfect made our stay seamless from selecting the apartment to checkout. Thanks so much for a memorable vaca. I have told all my friends about you already."
Jenni & Vic Marino, Texas, USA
"We had a wonderful stay, found Paris Perfect staff extremely helpful. Lovely apartment. Paris was Perfect!!"
"Everything was very nice, information very helpful and your people helpful and friendly. We appreciate your attentiveness. We had a great stay!"
"We loved staying here. Felt very comfortable, welcomed and found all of the extras provided so fabulous; e.g. body wash, slippers etc. Your information was so reliable we referred to it often and really made an effort to get to know the neighborhood. It is such a special area with much to offer. Thank you so much."
"We just wanted to say thank you for your professionalism and courtesy during our week long stay, It will be most memorable as we have gotten engaged during our stay and 1st trip to Paris.
The apartment was everything and more we could have hoped for. All the amenities as you would have at home. Quiet and very centrally located to everything from the Metro, to the open market, pharmacies, grocery stores and many cafe's. most of all walking distance to the Eiffel Tower. The espresso machine, Towel Heater and international DVD player and free calls to the US was really awesome!
Having an English speaking rep to meet us at the apartment was really helpful after an all night flight and 1st time in Paris.
Thank you so much, We look forward to returning to try out another one of your very well designed and furnished apartments. Briefly we got to experience what it was like to live in luxury as a Parisian, instead of a tourist."
Tanya & Anthony Dakin, USA
"Clairette was absolutely wonderful. Just as we expected and perhaps even more gorgeous! We wished for absolutely nothing. The neighbourhood is excellent. Lovely restaurants, markets and shops. So close to public transport and perfect for leisurely walks. Clairette is a very special place and we will remember our visit long into the future. Thank you Paris Perfect."
