Anyone rent from Parisian Flat?

Jump to last reply

I have googled Parisian Flat reviews and searched on these boards, but all I'm getting is generic reviews of flats in Paris, not those from the rental company called Parisian Flat!

I posted yesterday about some apartments I was looking at from Vacation in Paris. After reading all of the comments, I'm not as excited about any of those options. I'm now considering this instead:

or maybe this from Paris Perfect:

Sorry to repeat myself, I did post these links again at the bottom of my last thread, but I thought I would repost with an updated title.

FYI, we are a couple with 2 children, ages 7 & 9. My mother who I posted about yesterday has decided to join us later in our trip so she will no longer be a factor. We are arriving at CDG at 6 a.m. in July and staying about a week before we continue our travels in Provence and the Cote D'Azur. We would like a short walk to cafes, restaurants, shopping, and to have at least some sights within walking distance. We know we'll be on the metro quite a bit to get to other sights.

Considering our early arrival time, I may consider renting either apartment the previous night to ensure that we can check in early. I know many of you would see this as a waste of money, but we are from the east coast of the US, and I don't know how my children will deal with the time change. I might decide it's worth the money to have the peace of mind that we could enter the apartment as soon as we arrive.

If we do rent from the night before we arrive, PP says they will meet us at 9:00 a.m. to let us in, meaning we will probably need to spend an hour or so in a cafe with tired children & luggage, which my husband and others on these boards think is not a huge deal. Parisian Flat said we can come to the apartment upon arrival if no one is in it from the previous night even if we don't rent the previous night, which makes me think they are more flexible about the time they will let us in.

The PF apartment is ground floor which I know is a dealbreaker for some. It is in a private courtyard which might help with privacy issues. It has bars on the windows, which is reassuring for safety issues. Someone mentioned the metro about another apartment and this is very close to the Cardinal Lemoine metro station. I wonder if that would be an issue here too. It has 2 bathrooms which is nice.

Both apartments seem updated and both seem to be in good locations.

I would love opinions on these 2 apartments, but also any general reviews from people who have rented from Parisian Flat. Of course the reviews on their website are all good!

Thank you!
