My wife and I actually stayed in this apartment for our honeymoon and it was fantastic. Exactly what you see in the photos is what you get. It's very modern and clean and everything works.
In terms of convenience you are at the center of it all, the Eiffel Tower is a 15 minute walk away, the subway is at your doorstep, Monoprix is 8 minutes away and you walk out your front door and the arch De Triumph is on your doorstep.
Leo is an excellent host, he attends to your every need instantly, very warm and friendly, always smiling. I would definitely recommend this spot to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Paris.
Cosy property in prime central position
Left on 10/16/2013 for a stay in October 2013 | Kelvin Baggs
This cosy apartment is literally 50 meters (approx) from the arc de Triomphe (amazing location). The subway station is closer, just around the corner from the apartment. The room faces an internal courtyard, so you will not get traffic notice, but yon may here people in the courtyard.
The apartment is fully equipped with a kitchen, cooking equipment, microwave, over, fridge, dishwasher, washing machine and a portable air conditioning unit. Also included was free wifi, free telephone calls, even to international land lines, and a newly installed Nespresso coffee machine.
The washing machine broke down on our arrival and Leo, was very kind to launder our clothes for us and return them later that day. The machine was repaired before we departed.
The bed was very comfortable and made for a great night sleep.
Leo (Phillipe's son) looked after us while we where there and nothing seemed to be to be too much trouble. I would highly recommend the apartment to those people wanting a central location.
Perfect apartment for Parisian getaway!

I rented this apartment for 5 days with a friend and it was just perfect for us. The apartment is located on a busy street, but faces the courtyard so you don't hear any street noise. When you step out the front door in the morning, the first thing you see is the arc de Triumph which is about 1 block away! The metro is also 1 block away and is very easy to use in Paris to get around.
We were able to get 2 twin beds which was perfect for traveling with a friend. While the apartment is on the 1st floor, we felt very safe as 2 girls traveling alone. You have to use 2 key fobs to get into the building and of course a separate key for the actual apartment. The free wifi is great since the only downfall to not being in a hotel is that there is no concierge for recommendations. The apartment was immaculately clean and recently renovated unlike many other rentals in the area.
The amount of space you get for the price is great! I stayed in the same area at a hotel in 2012 and had a hotel room that was way smaller than the apartment for a lot more money.
Philippe was great to deal with through the entire process and answered all of my questions very quickly. It can be hard to rent an apartment in a foreign country when you don't speak the language, but Philippe spoke english and was great throughout the rental process.
There are many great restaurants and cafes in the area to choose from. We had a wonderful dinner at Le Hide just around the corner- make a reservation!
Overall, the apartment at 5 Mac Mahon was a great experience and perfect for 2 people traveling to Paris.

My sister and I spent four nights in this lovely apartment. It was secure, modern and spotlessly clean. In addition we had the joy of seeing the arc de Triomphe every time we stepped out of the complex. This apartment is within easy walking distance of a Metro stop, cafes, a Monoprix supermarket and the absolutely gorgeous local Poncelet market (full of photo and gastronomic opportunities).We highly recommend this place!

Philippe is renting out a true gem! This apartment is in an amazing location. It is located 1 small block from the arc de Triomphe. When you walk out of the apartment's entrance it is the first thing you see! It is just a short walk from the famous Champ de Elysees. The metro and hop on hop off bus stop are a 2 minute walk. The apartment itself is very clean and has all the necessities. We have a young toddler so the owner provided us with a cot. Small grocery stores are just down the street and a Starbucks around the corner! Great intimate restaurants all around you! We will absolutely be using this apartment when we return to Paris!!

Left on 10/14/2012 for a stay in October 2012 | at0001
After struggling to find a decent size hotel room in Paris for a good price we decided to find an apartment instead and fortunately we came across this little gem a stones through away from the arc de Triomphe. The studio apartment suited our needs perfectly. The owner Philippe meet us on arrival and should us around. The room is situated in an apartment complex, which has two security doors to enter which made our stay all the more comfortable.
Although being a studio apartment (the bedroom and kitchen are located in the same space) we found that there was plenty of space to move around. We didn't use the kitchen during our stay (only 4 days, but would have if we were in Paris for longer). The bathroom shower was both clean and very spacious. There is also a washing machine-dryer combo that was very useful rather than trying to find the closest laundrymat.
The only downside was the air-conditioning unit was a bit noisy, which made sleeping at night a bit hard, but after one or two night we got use to it.
Overall this was a fantastic find, cheap find and I would recommend it to any wanting to stay in Paris for more than 3 night.
A perfect vaction!

We spent 6 nights in Paris and really enjoyed it.The apartment is in a great location and you could almost enjoy a few days without using the Metro!
It's very modern and has all you could possibly need.It was very clean and had some guide books and brochures to help you plan your stay.
Overall it's great value and we would stay there again.

Na chegada ele nos recebeu e orientou quanto ao funcionamento do studio , sempre muito simpático e gentil , tivemos só um probleminha ao lidar com a torneira do chuveiro , liguei e imediatamente ele resolveu.O Studio é como aparece nas fotos , muito confortável , moderno, limpo e sossegado , o prédio é residencial ,rua tranquila e muito segura , está numa localização excelente , a poucos metros da av. Champs Elysées , do metro Charles de Gaulle Étoile, praticamente ao lado do arco do Triunfo , sem falar que o ônibus que leva ao aeroporto fica na quadra ao lado , facilitando a chegada e partida com malas . Foram dias maravilhosos ,o Studio é completo,roupa de cama e toalhas limpas e de boa qualidade,cama muito confortável , a cozinha é equipada ,com o necessário para preparar uma refeição, há nas proximidades supermercado, restaurantes e cafés .Ainda tem um pacote de internet telefone e tv .Super recomendo o Studio ,e se retornar a Paris ficarei lá novamente com certeza.

Couldn't be happier. We recommend Phillipe's studio without any qualification. It will be our 1st choice when we return to Paris. It's quiet (no earplugs needed), close to the Metro, & couldn't be easier to get to from CDG airport. Bed very comfortable too & well-appointed kitchen. Shower/laundry excellent. And Phillipe is very welcoming.

This ground floor studio was exactly as it looks in the photos, which was a relief. A secure entrance to an old art deco building and a groundfloor apartment with an opening window onto a courtyard, (not a garden as I'd imagined), a bit weird when people walked past but that was rare. It all felt very safe and secure. Philippe was really helpful setting us up and telling us about the area. With the arc de Triomphe so close and a busy shopping street,(Ave de Ternes), at the bottom of the hill, we were pleased to find ave Mac-Mahon a beautiful, relatively quiet street with local restaurants, cafes and shops for the things we needed.
Although the kitchen area is lovely and a real bonus, we mostly ate out, but it does give you the option and makes the place feel more liveable. The washer/dryer is handy too.
We had a conference at the Palais de Conres and we could have taken the metro, but found it a pleasant, easy stroll,(only about 10min), past the restaurants and great motorbike dealers. Hubby has bad arthritis in his ankles and the walk was actually easier than using the stairs at the metro. Another big plus for us was that as we were new to Paris, and spoke limited french, it was really easy to get around and find our way back to the apartment, the arc de Triomphe is a fabulous "X marks the spot" landmark.
Initially we had to stay at the Novotel La Defense as this was funded, but were so pleased we decided to move to the apartment when the 2 nights were up. It is closer to the Congres and a much, much, nicer area.
I'd especially recommend the apartment to anyone looking for easy access. Although there's a couple of steps when you get inside the foyer and hallway, it's literally only a couple.
The planning right through to checking out went very smoothly and I'd really recommend this apartment and Philippe if you are looking for somewhere to stay.
P.S. I would've posted photos but mine look pretty much the same as the ones in the listing!

Owner Philipe Schwarz provided a great location and a comfortable studio apartment close to all amenities, sightseeing and transportation. Philipe was available when needed by phone and addressed our questions with no hesitation. He certainly provided everything as promised on the website. Here are our observations after staying in his lovely, clean Paris studio for five days.
• Kingsize Bed
• Clothing cupboards so you can unpack & live comfortably
• Great quality towels including extra large bath towels the size of beach towels
• European towel dryer in the bathroom
• 5 minute walk to the arc de Triomphe and shopping on the Champs Elysee
• Close to Metro and city bus lines
• Restaurants, cafés, bars, grocery, fruit markets across the street or one street away
• 5 minute walk to airport bus
• In suite washer/dryer
• WiFi in suite - excellent access including phone service
• Several English language TV stations
• Totally renewed apartment in older well-maintained building with modern kitchen including dishwasher, induction cook top, microwave, electric kettle and more.
• Lots of counter space in modern washroom
• Large well lit shower with rainshower head and hand-held shower
Very safe area, but comes with the following security features that appealed to my wife:
• Entrance uses electronic secure key fob to enter main entrance and again to access courtyard for apartment building.
• Steel locking shutters on all windows
• Security lock on suite
• Building custodian on site if needed (only speaks French)

We had a wonderful stay, philippe met us on the day of our arrival which was a lovely personal touch. He gave us a few tips on where to go and the ease of walking through Paris to get a real feel for the city. This is exactly what we did and we feel we really saw Paris. Would go back without a doubt
Awesome weekend in Paris
Left on 12/20/2011 for a stay in December 2011 | Michai?
This was our first visit to Paris but we do have quite an experience traveling in Europe with my wife. We had only three days and seeing Paris in three days is a real challenge. Of course we didn't see everything but thanks to perfect location of this comfortable apartment we managed to see a lot.
The owner provided us with very comprehensive guide on how to get to the apartment and his representative was already waiting for us upon arrival. During our stay we felt absolutely secure and comfortable almost like at home, we had everything we could possibly need.
The apartment is located close to the metro station so we didn't worry about getting back no matter how far we got in our explorations. We visited almost all traditional tourist's spots in Central Paris just by walking! Only 20 minutes walking to Eiffel Tower and 30 minutes more to Louvre, for example. Actually, walking in Paris is a great attraction too. You will see more than you could from the excursion bus or taxi cab, it's a priceless opportunity for those who love taking pictures. I can't imagine better location to stay during our next trip to Paris.
We felt absolutely happy with the trip leaving the apartment early on Monday morning. The bus station is just 15 minutes walking from the apartment and from there you can get to the airport by a shuttle bus. In the airport we discovered that one of our cell phones was left in the apartment and that was quite a stress. I want to thank Philippe (the owner) and his representative for their help! After getting back home I called them asking for help. Next day Philippe sent the phone back to us and that's the kind of really professional and friendly customer relations that I can't over-price! I highly recommend this property not because of the apartment itself which is more than enough to make positive decision but also because of the people who really care about their customers. You can be sure they will do everything to make your stay a pure pleasure.

Beautiful flat, incredible location
Left on 06/28/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | KQA
My husband and I had a magnificent time at this flat. It is centrally located to the arc du Triomphe, Champs Elysees, Metro, various shops/cafes/restaurants, and an airport shuttle to Charles de Gaulle.
The flat was clean, and featured brand new, top of the line finishes in the bathroom and kitchen. The free Wifi, telephone line, and flat screen tv made for a very comfortable stay.
This flat is so economical, as it is cheaper than a hotel, yet features more amenities (washer/dryer, full kitchen, free Wifi, free calls to us, etc). Each morning we would make breakfast at the flat to save money.
I would highly recommend this flat- you will feel like a true Parisian.

This modern spcaious apartment (including a spacious kitchen and bathroom) is in a secure building in a great location, just a short walk to the shops and train station and airport shuttle bus. The owner was very accomodating, allowing us to have an early check in and late check out at no extra charge. I would recommend this apartment to anyone without hesitation. We had a wonderful time there.
King bed in a studio apartment in a wonderful location!
Left on 06/22/2011 for a stay in May 2011 | Margaret L.
We stayed in this newly renovated studio apartment, located on the street level and facing a quiet, interior courtyard for 10 days in May, 2011. At the time I booked, the renovations were ongoing and there were no photos to review. I relied on a floor-plan sketch and an emailed description from the agent, and the apartment proved to be not only as represented, but exceeded my expectations! It is difficult to find a king bed in Paris, and this studio has one, and still has plenty of living space and storage to fully unpack and feel settled. Both bath and kitchen are new and modern---combo washer-dryer, rain head glass shower stall, and all kitchen appliances, including dishwasher make for a comfortable stay. The wifi may have been faster than my California service! Philippe, who handled the booking and met us when we arrived, was always available and responsive to our questions and needs. This location is very close to the Etoile metro stop, as well as the air France airport shuttle bus stop; a free coupon in the Printemps map will get you back to the airport and save $35 USD for 2 adults! The neighborhood has grocery shopping nearby and we had a favorite restaurant within 2 blocks for dinner. I would absolutely book this again for a Paris stay and would do no further research as I am convinced that the overall value of lodging, comfort, location, and service cannot be duplicated.

Newly refurbished apartment in a a lovely apartment block. Amazing location, very close to Metro and 5 mins walk from a very nice supermarket. Very very close to the arc de Triomphe and Champs Elysee.
it's worth pointing out it is in a parisian apartment block so you will hear the neighbours.
All in all: nicely furnished, all mod cons, great location, definitely recommended.

The apartment was clean and recently updated. Induction cooktop, microwave, fridge and even a dishwasher. All the pots, pans, dishes and glasses etc provided. The bathroom had a large shower with a rainshower very nice and a washer/dryer. It had really comfortable beds. There was a electronic key required to enter the building and again to enter the inner courtyard where the apartment is located. The windows had steel shutters that you could close and secure from the inside allowing you to keep the windows open for air. Once you stepped out of the apartment and turned to the right you had a fantastic view of the arc De Triomphe located a block away. Access to the metro was located around the corner or at the Etoile. Metro gave you access all around Paris, I highly recommend the Metro Pass. A safe neighbourhood we were walking around at 0130 am and felt totally safe. Philippe was very helpful before our arrival and provided information about local shopping and restaurants upon are arrival. I recommend this apartment and would love to stay again if we get back to Paris.

This studio was exactly as described. We loved the building, the location, the closeness to the Champs-Elysee. We used the internet and the ability to call back to Canada for free! The decor was as it looks in the photo and Philippe was easy to deal with. Surprisingly, we didn't use the kitchen or washer dryer as much as we envisioned - we were too busy touring around and eating out.
