Having second thoughts about Paris apt. What would you do?

Jump to last reply

I thought I had decided on an apartment. I'm all the way to the point of faxing back the contract, but I am having second thoughts. Here's why.

I thought the location was fine, it is right at the border of the 6th and the 5th at 2 Place Saint-Michel. But, the reviews said it was quiet, and there is a metro right across the street, and lots of things walking distance like Notre Dame and Saint Chappelle. And it is a nice looking apt, 2 bedroom which is what we wanted.

Then little things started popping up. The owner wanted 35 more Euros for the week. Not that much really. Then they said we couldn't get into the apt until 3. With a hotel, that's not a problem, you can drop of your bags and go. Although I'm sure I could figure it out, now I will have to figure out what to do with my bags as my flight arrives at 8 am.

Then I read a trip report where someone talked about hating staying in the Latin Quarter. Although the apt isn't in the 5th, it is right across the street.

I have the contract here. What would you do? Am I just being overly anxious? I'm super swamped at work, and part of me says just do it, it will be fine, and be done with it. I leave March 10.
