A Large Three Bedroom Between Opera and the Louvre
This is a modern style three bedroom apartment on the second American floor with elevator and is 1,375 Sq. Ft. large (Sleeps 8). It is located between Place de la Opera and the Royal Palace, close to the Louvre and is very calm, very clear and quiet. The building is style Directoire, which means it was built just after French Revolution and before Napoleon's Empire. This location is close to a the Opera metro station and you can get to any place in Paris with ease (5 minutes walk to the Louvre, 15 minutes walk to the Champs Elysees and Saint Germain Des Pres). This is a typical Parisian district, with lots of theaters, venues, and restaurants, with a 'brasserie' just near the building. This spot is also close to the largest department stores (Galeries Lafayette and Printemps) and perfect for a french shopping experience. This is the district of the Parisians passages (very romantic little streets crossing the buildings that Walter Benjamin loved so much) and the district of the beautiful Palais Royal, where philosophers used to meet in the XVIIIth Century. In a few words you can get everything in Paris just by crossing the street. All shops are nearby as well as many buses, metros, and taxis. This apartment has a large living room with a modern working fireplace with firewood and an L shaped modern style sofa situated opposite. There is also a large dining table with chairs at one end of the salon. The living room has windows on one side overlooking the small street and windows on the other side overlooking a small private interior garden courtyard. The equipment includes a large plasma screen, stereo, DSL internet access, and phone. The decor is modern and comfortable with lots of art objects and books everywhere. There are two bedrooms with split Queen size beds and one bedroom with two double size beds. A split Queen bed consists of two custom made single beds that can be put together to make one seamless Queen size bed or set up as two separate single beds. The kitchen is large and fully equipped with a full size conventional oven, microwave, cook-top, refrigerator, and dishwasher. The adjacent utility closet has a full size washer and dryer stack. All shops are nearby as well as many buses, metros, and taxis.

Hard to find three bedroom extremely clean with an easy booking process. Representatives in Paris made check-in and check-out smooth and were very helpful with directions and recommendations. Location is excellent and very handy to all transportation options and within easy walking distance to major attractions. The apartment is well stocked and very clean plus the added welcome bottle of wine was very appreciated.

This was a wonderful apartment. It was handicapped accessible and able to handle us and our 4 grown children. It was very well equipped with lots of attention to detail. There was even a shopping cart for Paris market shopping. When we arrived we found wine, and basics such as milk, juice and coffee. The bedrooms were separated from the common rooms - making it easy for all of us move about at all hours.
The location - near the Opera, department stores, and the Louvre-- was also wonderful. There was a metro stop down one short block.
Paris by Heart is a great agency- with a phone number in the us. Our questions were always answered quickly and fully.
“Wonderful stay at this charming, quiet and centrally-located apa”

We had a wonderful time staying at this apartment. It was spacious, comfortable, well furnished, well maintained and very clean. For example, the beds were new and comfortable and the bathroom, which had recently been redone, was roomy and pleasant.
It was conveniently located, close to major attractions like Le Louvre, l'Opera Garnier, close to shopping (Printemps, Galleries...) and with lots of convenient everyday shops around too. Yet it was very quiet and charming. It's also within a short walking distance to the metro.
I found the reservation process very smooth. The pre-arrival instructions were perfectly clear, the person who greeted us at the apartment was very helpful and gave good instructions. Everyone we interacted with was very nice.
Overall, I would stay there again and would certainly recommend the apartment to others.
