Trip Report Eating Our Way Through Paris...Again! Trip Report

Jump to last reply

After a very challenging year, I decided we had to go back to Paris to have a real vacation. This was my 6th time to Paris in the last 9 years and I still love the city and crave being there, especially in May. It was wonderful, as always, and per usual, we ate our way around the city and loved every moment of it.

After a couple of stays in hotels, we started to rent apartments and have never looked back. We love having the space to spread out and having a kitchen has allowed us to really make use of the markets and do some cooking, although this time we didn't do much of that.

After multiple apartments in the Montparnasse area and one stay even further out in the 15th, we decided to try a new neighborhood and booked this apartment in the 11th: http://www.vrbo.com/574051
We've had great luck with VRBO and this apartment turned out to be very comfortable and we liked the location but there were definitely some issues and I wouldn't stay here again or in any of the apartments owned or run by the people we dealt with. The guy was rather unpleasant and very unfriendly, the apartment wasn't stocked to receive us (no toilet paper, I mean NONE, all the towels were wet, no coffee filters, etc.) and there turned out to be a homeless man living in the vestibule of the apartment building.

But we were in Paris and ready to enjoy all the city had to offer.
