This property was perfection. The listing was through and accurate; the space was in sparkling condition. The apartment is centrally located next to the Louvre, making it easy to walk everywhere. The flat is well-equipped with everything one might need to cook - as we did multiple times during our stay. The layout of the flat is also excellent - the master bedroom and the 2 additional bedrooms are down the hall from one another, giving everyone some space.
Glama Paris provided excellent customer service: they were highly responsive, proactive and welcoming. I would rent any of their properties without hesitation given the high standard of service and the quality of their property portfolio. Absolutely recommend both this apartment and Glama Paris - they will be my go-to first choice in planning future trips to Paris.

Wonderful Paris apartment
roll tide  (United States)  - July 24, 2016

The location can't be any better unless you just don't want to be in downtown Paris. You are literally across the street from the Louvre Museum and within walking distance of many other landmarks. The Rivoli metro stop is a mere 150 feet away from the front door and takes you anywhere else you want to go in Paris. There's a supermarket one block away and little bakeries and green grocers nearby if you don't want to go the supermarket route.

The apartment itself was beautiful. Very authentic Parisian yet updated for modern comfortable convenience. The AC was a must for us and all the bedrooms have AC as well as the dining room. The bed rooms are away from the road so you don't hear any street noise. The clothes dryer doesn't vent to the outside so you have to remove and empty the water collector after each dry cycle. Just FYI as it took us three days to figure this out. Beds were comfortable and so were the bathrooms. The rain showers were great.

The Glamaparis team was always friendly and available and helped us with printing out flight tickets, concert tickets, etc. and their office is actually just a few blocks away.

The only reason I'm marking it 4 instead of 5 stars was the cleanliness of the apartment. Whoever is cleaning that place isn't doing a very good job. Windows weren't clean, one of the balconies had a soda bottle ashtray on it still, and there was dirt and debris under the couch. All in all it was a great place to stay and we very much enjoyed it.

We felt like we were living the life of very lucky Parisians! I have mobility issues so it was very important that we find a place with an elevator and this place fit the bill. The lift is tiny (fits 2 people or 1 person and 1 bag) but was very reliable. Paul met us upon our arrival and assisted us with ferrying the luggage up to the 5th floor. He then went through the apartment and explained all features and made sure we understood the TV's and internet. The apartment was just beautiful, very well appointed while being very comfortable. Our son and his wife and 2 year old joined us and it was wonderful to have our own kitchen and large dining room table and don't forget the washer and dryer! The 2 year old had plenty of space to run and it was so nice to all be together rather in separate hotel rooms - this makes for a completely different visit. The bedrooms are a bit snug (by American standards) but 4 adults and a toddler did just great. The street out front is very busy and noisy but the apartment is very quiet--we did not hear the street noise or any neighbors. Location is great with a market with everything you need a short block away. Be sure to have Paul give you the name of the car service that speaks English. They picked us up for our return flights right on time in a beautiful vehicle and helped my husband with the luggage. We would definitely stay at this beautiful place again and we highly recommend it.

Amazing apartment in Paris!
P.J  (United States)  - May 13, 2016

We stayed at the apartment on Rue du Louvre in May. We had a total of five adults in 3 bedrooms – two couples and a mother in law. This was the perfect set up for our group as there are two sleeping wings so we stayed on one side and our friends and their mother stayed in the other wing. It was nice to have two separate private areas. Our room had a private bath. Although it was a small bathroom, there were deep drawers so all of my beauty products fit without taking up valuable counter space. The shower is a bit odd in that it faces out to the bedroom. It’s also a bit small so be prepared. We had a slight issue with the water not draining very well so we just took shorter showers. There is a split bathroom in the other wing which had a great tub and larger shower and a washer and dryer. We made great use of the whole apartment, as we cooked breakfast most mornings and sat around the living room in the afternoons while enjoying wine and cheese before we headed out to dinner each evening. It really felt like home.

The location is perfect. I’ve stayed in several areas in Paris, and this was by far the best. It is so easy to get anywhere and everything’s such an easy walk! Even our friend’s mom who had never traveled overseas before felt comfortable going out on her own, as the neighborhood surrounding the apartment had cute stores with friendly staff. I unfortunately had to work a bit while here, and I had no issue with the wifi. Working with Glama Paris was easy and they were very professional. All in all, we had an amazing trip! If you have any additional questions on our stay you may reach out to me directly.

Fantastic location and beautiful apartment
Anonymous  (United States)  - January 10, 2016

The apartment was perfect for our stay in Paris with two children (6yrs and 2yrs) as well as my parents. It is a fantastic size, larger than we had expected with good sized living, dining and kitchen spaces. It is newly renovated and is decorated beautifully. The lift is very small - large enough for 2 adults but is all that is needed so that you don't have to walk up five flights of stairs or cart luggage up stairs. The location is fantastic - steps away from a Metro stop, bus stop literally on the door step, the Louvre only across the road and surrounded by some great eating - including perfect crepes. The apartment configuration having two of the bedrooms separated from the other master bedroom was perfect for us as it meant we could have ourselves and the children away from my parents. There is a very good sized family bathroom with separate WC and good washer / dryer also. Views from the living space are lovely. The only downside was the wooden floors were quite loud and with children wanting to run up / down the hall I was a bit concerned about the neighbours but there were no complaints. I dealt with Samia from Glamaparis for this booking and she was excellent, meeting us on the Sunday evening to show us in and give us the briefing. Everything was perfect - thanks.

Absolutely ideal location for an apartment that was spotlessly clean and well-equipped
Susan H  (United States)  - December 20, 2015

From the start my experience with renting this property was excellent. The responses from the representative for the apartment at GlamaParis [GP] were very prompt and helpful and respectful. GP handled the negotiations with the owner and worked out all the details smoothly and competently. GP assisted us with locating transportation from CDG Airport. The GP representative, Samia, met us promptly on our arrival at the apartment where she gave us a tour of the apartment and all the details regarding appliances, etc. which were very clean and modern. When I had questions, GP responded promptly. We never felt stranded or without resources when we needed them.

The apartment had a spacious living room and dining room and kitchen with modern appliances and was well stocked with pots, pans, dishes, etc. The bedrooms were off to other side of the apartment which meant it was quiet in the bedrooms even when kids or the TV were playing in the living room or watching TV.

The entry way and elevator were small though utterly charming. As you rode the elevator, you could see stained glass scenes at each level.

The location of the apartment was amazingly convenient to everything---half a block from the Metro, a short walk to the Marais, the Pompidou; just behind the Louvre. There were playgrounds galore for the kids and a boulangerie and two grocery stores and drug store within a block and a half. Also great restaurants in this location, as well.

I would certainly return to this apartment and work with GlamaParis again!

This ideally situated apartment is the perfect home-away-from-home for your family!

We would book this site again in a heartbeat!

Lisa Morrison  (United States)  - October 12, 2015

Fabulous apartment in a gorgeous building. It's centrally located which was great for getting around on foot or by train. The spacious lounge was fabulous for kicking back with a glass of wine after a long day sight seeing. The beds were super comfy and the apartment had everything you needed - dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, air conditioning, central heating, free phone calls and more. GLAMAPARIS (booking agents) were wonderful to deal with. Would highly recommend this apartment for service, facilities and location.

A great way to visit Paris!
Peter Shull  (United States)  - September 6, 2015

None of us had stayed in this neighborhood previously, and were skeptical. But it turned out to be an ideal location, walkable to most of the parts of the city we wanted to see. The apartment itself is very comfortable, light, and well-equipped. Very spacious. There is a good amount of traffic on the Rue du Louvre, but the bedrooms are at the back, so very quiet for sleeping. Agency staff were very accomodating, helpful, and communicative both before and after our stay, and when they greeted us the first day to familiarize us with the apartment. I would absolutely rent again.

Trip of a lifetime
Kate Y.  (United States)  - August 4, 2015

Over the years, we have rented from many properties on VRBO, but all have paled in comparison to this flat. The pictures and description do not do it justice. The apartment is beautifully decorated, stocked with all necessities and the location is impossible to beat. Samia from GLAMPARIS was friendly, incredibly helpful, and even recommended our first delicious lunch at GLADINES, which was scrumptious. The apartment is ideally suited for families of all ages (we stayed with our two children, ages 6 and 10 and my parents) We will most certainly be renting here again and will be recommending to all our friends and families.

Fantastic Location
Paige  (United States)  - August 3, 2015

Having stayed in many VRBO listings, I have found that reality does not match the photos. NOT here. The flat was exactly as described. It was wonderful. The beds were comfortable. The bedrooms were spacious. The living area was large and open making it possible for us to relax and enjoy the street sounds below after a long day of sightseeing. The kitchen had everything we needed, and the building itself was beautiful. Glamaparis is an outstanding management company to work with if you are at all nervous about renting so far away from home. I have only one final item to note. If you are hoping to fall off your balcony into fine dining and scores of cafes, this is not the best location in Paris. We were there to visit Versailles, museums, and gardens, and the Metro was just steps away. This made it absolutely perfect for my family of six.

Excellent Location, close to transit & attractions
Joseph W  (Canada)  - July 8, 2015

The apartment was roomy, very clean and we definitely needed the air conditioning during our stay. We were half a block away from the subway. Very close to a lot of museums and attractions we visited. Great restaurants and bakeries within walking distance. It was perfect size for our family of four. Wish the Master bathroom is a little bigger ( shower) otherwise we were very pleased with our stay. Will definitely stay here again.

Very nice apartment; wonderful location
Chris c.  (United States)  - June 14, 2015

We had a wonderful vacation in Paris. The apartment was beautiful and suited our needs perfectly. And with the heat wave in early July, the air conditioning was a big plus. The location is perfect; it is in walking distance to so many great restaurants and other activities. Only real complaint is the washer/dryer... not very good at drying.

Everything about this apartment was perfect!!
Kerry M.  (Australia)  - May 20, 2015

This apartment exceeded our expectations. Secure and beautiful entryway, spacious living room, dining room and kitchen, comfortable furniture and beds. Air conditioning quiet and consistent. Plenty of closet space for clothing and luggage storage and all the amenities we wanted. The listing description was accurate in all respects. The property was clean, well maintained and all appointments appear to be quite new. Glamaparis account manager, Paul Barraud de Lagerie was prompt, kind and very helpful. The location is ideal for walking to many of the major landmarks and, when necessary, we found the metro and buses very easy to use. Plenty of restaurants nearby as well as grocery stores, bakeries and cheese shops. We visited many of the iconic landmarks and several restaurants. Highly recommend attending a mass at Notre Dame. I am not a practicing Catholic but was still very moved by it. Please note that the dryer functions like a dehumidifier and has a water reservoir that needs to be emptied regularly. I would most definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives. Do not hesitate to book it!!

Beautiful, spacious, Parisian apartment!
Kirsten B.  (United States)  - April 6, 2015

We had an absolutely amazing stay at this apartment. I was traveling with my two girlfriends, so we each got our own room, which was ideal. There was plenty of storage for the mass amounts of clothes we brought (we tend to over pack). The apartment itself is gorgeous with modern furnishings. The apartment is very spacious! The process of booking the apartment was pretty seamless and the gentleman who met us the day of our arrival was very helpful with checking us in and ensuring all of our questions were answered. Having the elevator was very convenient - although it really only fits two people comfortably, but it was nice to have when transporting our luggage.

The location of the apartment was ideal - right across from the Louvre and a few steps away from a metro stop. The apartment was clean and well-maintained. I would definitely recommend this property to a relative or a friend.

We enjoyed getting cheese and wine from the grocery store down the street and having our own happy hour at the apartment. We walked to many of the major attractions in Paris from the apartment. We also enjoyed taking the Batobus on the Seine.

The only odd thing about this apartment is that the shower is literally in the master bedroom, you can see from the pictures - how this could be awkward.

Overall, I would highly recommend staying at this great apartment. We were very sad to leave!!

Beautiful apartment
wanttoseetheworld65  (Australia)  - March 9, 2015

Wow! My family stayed in this beautiful apartment for 1 week. There was plenty of room for all 6 of us. This place is as beautiful if not more than the pictures on this site. The location is correct. The property was clean and newly renovated. The lift was very small but handy after 5 miles a day in Paris. The decor was traditional French. Wonderful wood floors,12 foot ceilings, moldings everywhere, and large french doors letting in all kinds of light. The beds were firm, we all loved them. The queen bed in one of the back bedrooms splits into 2 singles. There were shears and thick curtains in all of the bedrooms. The closet size in the bedrooms vary. The bigger the bedroom the smaller the closet. The closets have both hanging dowels and drawers. There is plenty of room to store suitcases and coats in the entry closets. The bathtub is a soaking tub. Watch out, the shower pipes get very, very hot. 1 roll of toilet paper for each bathroom was provided. The toilet seat in the bedroom was loose. We received the wrong access number to the WIFI in our welcome contract. After 1 phone call we received the correct number. During check-in make sure you make them thoroughly explain the use of the stove, clothes washing machine and dryer (we never could work the dryer), phone and WIFI (you have to reboot it every time/ not really a problem). We thought we understood how to work it all but alas operator error plagued us. The location is great for walking the whole city. There is a metro station less then a block away. There are only 2 units per floor. The tenants in the building were very nice. It is a quiet building but the construction scaffolding suggested noise to come. The neighborhood felt very safe, even at night. Just 2 blocks away there is a great bakery (Julien's) and produce market (across he street) on St Honore heading towards the Marais. Do not pass up the chance to stay here!

Wonderful Apartment - Amazing Location!
Aimee L.  (United States)  - December 28, 2014

We recently stayed here during our Christmas stay in Paris. It was myself my husband and our two boys, my parents and my sister and we had plenty of space. The apartment is beautiful and very comfortable. We spent a bunch of time at the big dining room table visiting and eating. The apartment was very clean and well maintained.

The location is FANTASTIC. One block from the Metro, lots of great shops and restaurants very close by. Walking distance to many attractions - quick and easy to get to Notre Dame, the Louvre and Orsay. We walked all the way to the Arc du Triomphe and back one afternoon...

The property management company provided excellent service - they were very friendly and helpful. Their office is a short way from the apartment, so when we needed to print passes to the Eiffel Tower, they let us come over and use their printers. They went out of their way to make our stay pleasant.

We would HIGHLY recommend this apartment - our experience was perfect!

Dierdre Douglas  (Canada)  - November 11, 2014

From the moment I emailed with the owner about the apartment, I knew it would be great. Both he and the management company were extremely enthusiastic, prompt and helpful. The apartment itself is fantastic! The main rooms (kitchen, dining room, living room and foyer) are huge! It is well laid out so everybody has their own space but then the communal spaces are big and open. The location of the apartment is perfect- the metro is literally 50 steps from the door and is on a line that makes it easy to get anywhere. It is also a great central location for walking and great access for runs along the Seine. The property management company was extremely helpful in setting us up with whatever we needed for our stay (ie, grocery store recommendations, transfers from airport etc) and made anything having to do with the apartment and the logistics super easy. We would definitely rent again!

CarolL464  (United States)  - June 8, 2014

This is a great apartment to rent for Paris. It is centrally located - half a block from part of the Louvre, half a block from the Metro, and about 2-3 blocks from the bus stop for Bus #69. The elevator for the apartment is indeed really small (fits 2 adults snugly), but it is efficient. The apartment itself is lovely. The living room has a balcony big enough to sit on, and you can see the Louvre from there. The kitchen is very modern, and the fridge is quite large for European kitchens. The bedrooms are big enough - note that one bedroom has 2 beds (twin?) that were pushed together. The other rooms had one bed in each (queen size). The bathroom in the "master bedroom" is interesting since the shower is technically in the bedroom. And yes, there is no soap holder or any other ledge, so we had to balance things on the levers for the shower head. The other bathroom has the washer and dryer, which do work.
This apartment has nice wood floors and lovely details. We appreciated that it was very clean and that we were greeted there by Paul to go over the agreement, etc. He did give us tips on grocery stores (supermarches) and bakeries (boulangeries). There are 2 very good boulangeries on Rue St. Honore around the corner. The nearest grocery store is also only about 2 blocks away. And if you want to go sit by the Seine, that is only about 2 blocks away as well.
All in all, this is a great apartment! We loved the convenience of it and definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Paris.

Wonderful Paris apartment in the perfect location!
Sandy C.  (United States)  - April 18, 2014

We were so lucky to be able to stay in this lovely, spacious apartment located just one block from the back of the Louvre and 2 blocks from the Seine. This apartment had been recommended by friends who had stayed there in October. We were not disappointed!! It was the perfect spot to be able to safely & easily walk to so many attractions. The photo you see on the website if the actual view you see from the 5th floor balcony!

The management team met us promptly at the apartment. I was happy I had entered her cellphone number into my iPhone so it made texting her very easy once we arrived. I also had the office number to contact when we ran into a problem by somehow "locking" the washing machine so it would not work! (We had pushed one too many buttons!?!) The problem was quickly fixed later that day. The apartment was immaculate and had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The washer & dryer came in handy as well as hairdryers in both bathrooms. There was an electric coffee pot with filters which was nice to have. The BIG bounus was having free telephone calls to the US available on the landline! We did not do any cooking of meals but there was very adequate and nice kitchen ware, dishes, & the ever important wine glasses with a dishwasher to do clean up! The showers could use stick-on soap dishes since there is no where to set anything so it was a bit nuance for all of us. The small elevator was helpful with the luggage and at the end of a long day of sightseeing but we usually tried to climb the stairs! The nearby Le Fumoir restaurant was so fabulous that we dined there two nights. There were small grocery stores and Boulangerie's around the corner on rue Saint Honore' so we were easily able to obtain breakfast items, take out meals, cheese, baguettes & good wines. It would work great for a group of ladies who travel together and could share the expense. But I think the glass wall of shower in the master bed room could be covered somehow if it wasn't a couple sharing the room though. The location made it worth every cent as far as we were concerned! The Notre Dame, Seine river walk, Louvre, the Orsay were all within walking distance. There was a bus stop right infront of the entrance & the Metro was once block away and we used both easily. The biggest help was having a four day Museum Pass that allowed us to walk pass the long lines everytime. Just followed Rick Steve's book! We've recommended this apartment to many of our friends.

The apartment was perfect! The elevator is small-2 adults max- but the steps are great, especially after eating all the French breads/pastries. The location could not be more perfect- steps away from the metro (louvre/rivoli stop) the Louvre, great bread for morning breakfast, grovery 1 block away, restaurants. The bathrooms are small by American standards but the fact that there are two toilets is great (one is a separate WC) The management company could not have been more helpful and responsive. The building is very quiet but the people we saw were very friendly. The kitchen is up to date with everything you might need. We hope to come back some day....our visit was perfect! Thank you

Mary Ann Jensen  (United States)  - October 23, 2013

My husband and I stayed at this apartment with my mother-in-law, father-in-law, and sister-in-law. There was plenty of room for all of us. The elevator was very much appreciated, especially since my in-laws are older. It is very small, two adults max, but quick. The apartment is on the sixth floor american (fifth european). It has lots of natural light. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer worked great. There are directions for using the washer and dryer in english posted near them. My husband and I stayed in the bedroom with it's own bathroom. There was a great shower, but it was basically in the bedroom, made of glass, so not for the shy! My husband likes a firm bed, and I like soft, but we both found our bed to be comfortable. The wifi is great. The location is hard to beat. Lots of restaurants, food shops, grocery stores, and a metro close by. We walked to the left bank, Notre Dame, and of course the Louvre, easily. The only improvement I could think of was there needs to be something you can put your soap into in the showers. We bought a little soap holder that we attached with suction cups in the shower and that helped a lot. Loved our stay and loved Paris!

True to description: nice place in excellent location
TomDM94  (United States)  - July 19, 2013

This was my first vacation rental and it hadn't been reviewed, so I was very nervous about it. That said, it turned out very well. The apartment was true to its description. One of the best things: air conditioning. I was told that AC was not necessary in Paris, but we were there in July during a heat wave, and it was very much appreciated.
The apartment had great living space, a smallish but adequate kitchen with all the necessities (coffee maker, refrigerator, utensils, cork screw), excellent storage space, and such a good location: just diagonal to the Louvre. The neighborhood was quiet at night.
The check in was easy, and Paul, the person in charge of our rental, came out early to meet us there with all the lease papers.
We had asked for mid-week maid service, but it didn't come, the only glitch. Turns out we really didn't need it.
The washer/drier was a little finicky and couldn't handle very large loads, a bigger deal to my wife who likes to wash towels a lot.
Always the skeptic, I waited to write this review to make sure there weren't any extra charges on my credit card, but everything went as agreed. I would recommend this place to a larger family.

Absolutely Fabulous Apartment!
Nancy  (United States)  - May 5, 2013

My husband and two grown daughters were fortunate to be able to stay in this magnificent apartment at the end of May. Although we started to plan our trip in January, most of my favorite hotels were already booked (French Open), and my daughter suggested that we rent an apartment. We found this apartment online, so I was a little skeptical, but it was the best decision we ever made.

The reviews and photos just seemed too good to be true; however, this apartment lived up to every positive comment and exceeded our expectations. It seems redundant to repeat all the great things others have said about this apartment; the location is beyond great, the spaciousness of the apartment is wonderful -- perfect for a family or good friends to relax together in the living room or allow for privacy in the bedrooms toward the back of the apartment. The contemporary kitchen and bathrooms are a nice contrast to the beautiful wood floors, mantles and other lovely architectural details. It’s extremely clean and the beds were very comfortable; lots of closet space, too. Everything you need is provided (kitchen and bath), and we appreciated the Wi-Fi -- Every detail was considered. Even past renters left their tour books and converters for future renters.

On the practical side, we saved a lot of money by staying in the apartment (vs. a hotel) and especially appreciated the flexibility in preparing breakfast (everyone on a different schedule) or just snacking on wine, cheese and fruit later in the day. There is a great little food shop a block away where the clerks were very friendly and helpful, even though our French was terrible.

I also want to commend the staff at GlamaParis. Mehgan and Paul were very professional and extremely helpful, responding immediately to all our emails and inquiries. They made the whole rental easy and efficient. The owner also sent a lovely email when we first began the rental process.

All in all, it was just a wonderful experience. If I plan another trip to Paris, I will schedule it around the availability of this apartment – Just fabulous!

Laura Browne  (United States)  - May 9, 2012

What a wonderful apartment and great location. The apartment is very spacious and well appointed. We loved being able to walk short distances to some of the "must see" Paris attractions.

Thanks so much for all of your help at check-in time letting us store our luggage at your office until we could check in. This way, we didn't miss a day seeing your beautiful city.

WE WILL BE BACK and now know we can count on you for our rental place.

wonderful time
Eva  (United States)  - October 13, 2011

My husband and I returned along with 2 other couples and once again had a wonderful time staying in this lovely apt.We discovered additional awesome restaurants and shops very close by. We were within walking distance to the office of Cityrama tours which provides fabulous options for sightseeing too. O Chateau wine tastings/ bar also in walking distance. The apartment is very well equipped and is so convenient to the metro, bus etc. The Staff are all most helpful with any questions. We highly endorse this apartment!

Its a stunning flat, very luxurious and posh in an impressive building with good security, high ceilings, lovely period features (its very parisian) high spec luxury kitchen, cute balconies (with view of the louvre and the seine!!) and lots of space (its huge!)
Amazing location - loads of lovely restaurants and shops very close by and food market just round the corner on sundays, only 10/15 min walk to Marais, 5 mins to the louvre and only 1 minute from the metro.
Very comfy beds and pillows (always slept really well here) huge tv in the living room, washing machine AND dryer which is very handy for long stays, wifi internet, house phone - everything you could need.
Also the agency is very helpful with any questions or problems. Would def recommend this property to friends and family.

Best stay
philbert69  (United States)  - July 6, 2011

It's always a little nerve-wracking to rent an apartment sight unseen but the moment we walked into 16 Rue de Louvre, we knew we had made a great choice. It is spacious and attractive with everything our family of six needed to feel comfortable during our week-long Paris visit. The location is great. We found two neighborhood groceries right around the corner as well a good bakery. We were a little worried that the location might be a bit "touristy" since it was near the Louvre, but it really is the best of both worlds: just a few steps to the Louvre and two Metro stops in one direction but also within a couple of blocks of the charming Les Halles neighborhood with its many small cafes and restaurants filled with mostly local patrons. Quick note: We loved that the apartment is directly above the green Deluc Detective agency sign so prominently displayed in Woody Allen's most recent film, Midnight in Paris).
The apartment's management team was helpful and efficient. They arranged a van to pick us up at the airport as well as bring us to the train station. A little pricey but worth it for a family after a 10 hour flight on Bastille Day!
Other positive points:Used the Wifi and free land-line calls to the US and Paris without any glitches. Well-appointed kitchen, wonderful balcony views, and spaciousness that allowed everyone to have their own space. And of course the charming wrought-iron elevator that was so appreciated after a day of sightseeing.

Quintessential Parisian Apartment
Judith S  (United States)  - June 19, 2011

This renovated apartment has sophisticated modern black and white decor in a lovely older building with hardwood floors and French doors leading to balconies. My husband and I stayed there for a week with our 2 college age grandchildren; it was within easy distance not only of the Louvre, but also other museums and attractions, shopping, the metro, and restaurants. (We highly recommend Le Fumoir, less than a block away). The grandchildren particularly appreciated the internet capability which allowed them to use their laptops and the phone service which allowed them to talk to their significant others in the US.

We found having an apartment so much more enjoyable than a hotel. While we ate out at least once a day, we kept bread, wine, cheese, fruit, coffee, etc. so that we could have breakfast and simple meals there.(There is a small market close by, as well as a patisserie for delicious eclairs).

It's also nice to have the space to relax in the living room, play cards in the dining room, or retire to a bedroom when you wish.

Just one thing: the "master" bedroom and bath is the smallest and least desirable, with a very small shower in the bedroom. The other bedrooms and bath were more commodious.

We would certainly recommend this property, and the GlamParis people who manage it. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great spot for afternoon breaks
Mike Gramm  (United States)  - June 23, 2010

We had a group of 6 people ranging from 13 yrs old to 70 years old. We decided to stay in an apartment so that we could have a place to socialize while taking an occasional break from touring. It was a wonderful choice. If grandma or grandpa needed a little nap, the rest of us could either rest or go next door to a bistro and grab a glass of wine or have a little afternoon wine and cheese in our own apartment. The apartment was very large and had a wonderful dining room with a large table. The wireless internet worked fine. We struggled a little with the washer/dryer until we figured it out. The bathrooms are tiny, but that is just nitpicking. Overall it was a wonderful place to stay and we would definitely recommend it!

Enjoyed our stay
Eva  (United States)  - June 21, 2010

We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay in this beautiful home away from home! Well appointed with all the comforts and stylishly decorated, this place was an oasis. with a view of the Louvre from the balcony. The modern kitchen allowed us to dine in comfortably with grocery and pastry/bakery shops minutes away, or we ventured out in any direction for wonderful bistros again all within the block. Shopping was also easily accessed on foot. Located centrally and within easy walking distance of so many wonderful sites it was perfect for my family of 6! Also, close to metro stops and our favorite- bus routes, we managed to travel about with ease! The taxi service they referred us to also was prompt and courteous for arrival and departure. We have definitely told all our friends that this is THE place to stay while in Paris and we are already planning our return!

Wonderful stay
Mrs R  (Norway)  - May 17, 2010

We were three mature couples spending a long weekend in Paris in May 2010. For hotels rooms of this standard we would have had to pay more than we did here. One upside was that we had a kitchen, and a table to sit around together in the evenings. With the great shops for quality food and wine in the rue Montorgueuil, relatively near by, we ended up lunching out and dining in.There is a baker just around the corner for breakfast stuff. We like cooking when in France, and it saves a lot of money. There is however a good choice of restaurants very near the apartment. We had Sunday lunch at one-michelin-star Yam'tcha, just a minute away. Recommended!

The people from the company that run the property were very friendly and helpful. To keep up the standard the owner/company will need to check on things systematically. The carpet under the dining table needs to be cleaned/replaced. And for cooking more good knives are needed. And a good tin opener (for confit de canard!).

We absolutely recommend this appartment. The location could hardly be better, and the bedrooms are at the back, away from the street noise.

Good location
Kathy S.  (United States)  - May 16, 2010

We have booked thru VRBO several times and have never been disappointed. The central location of this apartment was perfect along with the apartment itself. It's a 100 year old beautiful building with modern furnishings, lighting, and baths. Minor issues? Sure. But that's all a part of the charm of living in the heart of an old city in an old building. There were 6 of us and all very comfortable. The down comforters on the beds are wonderful and plenty of privacy for all. And our contact person was very helpful whenever needed, both during our trip planning and upon arrival.
What a treat to experience Paris from the heart of it all. There are several bakeries, markets, restaurants and crepe stands without even having to cross the street. And then to cross the street and there is the Louvre...To be able to cut through the courtyards of the Louvre as a shortcut to other parts of the city has got to be one of the most amazing feelings. Worth the price? Absolutely. Would we come again and stay in this same apartment? In a heartbeat. Merci and Au revoir!

Terrific girls getaway!
50th birthday getaway  (United States)  - April 15, 2010

Our stay in your beautiful apartment was wonderful. Accommodated 6 women very well.

The location, furnishings and the balcony made our stay very comfortable and the central location is perfect. The apartment is large, clean and appropriately equipped for visitors. We enjoyed the balconies at dusk every day and the view of the louvre makes you want to pinch yourself to say "yes, we are really here".

We will be recommending the apartment to some friends who our planning a future trip to Paris.

This apartment in Paris is incredible! I have been to many in Paris and this one takes the cake. It is so spacious and roomy. It has plenty of room for 6 people.

Our family so enjoyed this beautiful apartment in March 2009. It is spacious, very clean, beautiful hardwood floors and good bathrooms. I would stay there again for sure! It is a stones throw from the Louvre and there is a wonderful bakery just around the corner. The best thing about this apartment is the fabulous location! It was much better than staying in a hotel.

Great apartment
KMR2009  (United States)  - December 18, 2008

My family and I recently rented this apartment for five days after Christmas. The location was great, near a metro stop and so close to the Louvre we could see it from our balcony. There was plenty of space for all six adults to spread out. A large dining room table and a comfortable living room made it great for having a night in. I would recommend this apartment and I would stay in it during future trips to Paris.

FANTASTIC APARTMENT & LOCATION!
Janet Cole  (United States)  - July 3, 2008

This spacious, luxurious apartment is situated just across the street from the Louvre Museum, the metro and the Seine River. It has beautiful views from its balconies. It is in the heart of Paris and yet is very quiet because it is located on the 5th floor. The property manager , Camilla, was fantastic and took care of any of our concerns immediately. The only inconvenient situation we encountered was the elevator was out of service and undergoing repairs.

You can easily walk to many attractions, shops, restaurants, groceries or hop on the metro and be at your destination in minutes. A good tour agency is conveniently located just a few blocks away for any day/evening tours you'd like to reserve such as the Moulin Rouge Dinner Show or Versailles. Get the Paris Museum Pass and Metro pass to enjoy unlimited rides on the metro and free admission to over 60 museums. You also get to use special entrances to skip lthe long waiting lines.

Our 3 children, ages 15, 16 & 22 loved the apartment and the many amenities such as flat screen TV's, free internet access, clothes washer and dryer, and ironing board. The top of the line gourmet kitchen and beautiful apartment furnishings are impressive. There are plenty of fresh linens and starter supplies such as bathroom tissue, paper towels, detergents, etc. All the rooms were spotless clean and newly renovated.

We highly recommend this great apartment and look forward to staying there again.

Wonderful property!
Family_of_Five  (United States)  - April 10, 2008

This apartment exceeded our expectations! It is very large, especially by European standards, and fit our family of 5 adults perfectly. The location is absolutely ideal for exploring Paris – the Metro stop is less than a block away, the Louvre can be seen from the apartment’s balconies, and there is easy access to shopping, restaurants, and cultural sites. This is particularly helpful on the nights when the Louvre is open late and less crowded than normal! The apartment itself is well equipped with amenities such as a full kitchen, two full baths (one with a shower, one with both a shower and a tub), a large dining table, and three bedrooms with queen beds. Everything was in outstanding condition. The only drawback to the apartment during our visit was the lack of working elevator – it is a fair climb up the stairs, but nothing that was not manageable. My sister was even 4 months pregnant during our stay and did just fine. I would eagerly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a wonderful experience in Paris!
