Trip Report Smartpartment in Paris

Jump to last reply

After nearly a week in Prague we were onto Paris for the second week of our vacation. Our SmartWings flight was an hour late and when we arrived at CDG there was no sign of the taxi we had booked which was recommended by Paris Perfect. We called and were told the driver was there holding a sign with our name on it but after waiting awhile longer we called Paris Perfect to confirm the greeting at our apartment and took the next taxi in the que.

We arrived at the blue door of the Kir apartment and put ourselves and luggage in the small elevator. On the 6th floor we were met by one of the Paris Perfect staff who showed us "around" the apartment and provided directions on how most things work, what supplies were provided, where to take the trash out, how to open and close the sofa bed and showed us the small binder that was the instruction book for the apartment. It is just as pretty as in the photos on the Paris Perfect website but the bathroom is actually smaller than we thought. I don't know how they even got photos of it for the website.

We dubbed it the "Smartpartment" like the Smart cars we saw around Europe. It had everything we needed except extra space. The kitchen was small but well-fitted and made our own small kitchen at home seem huge by comparison. Over the week we decided the coffee maker should be replaced by a French press to make more room and they might have chosen a smaller size toaster. Paris Perfect provided lots of fluffy white towels and the bedding was very nice. We would find out that the sofa bed was surprisingly comfortable.

After unpacking we headed to an ATM, boulangerie and grocery store to stock up for the week. We have stayed in this neighborhood of the 7th near the rue St. Dominique on previous trips so knew our way around somewhat. Dinner that night was simple, just some cheese, fruit, bread and wine. A good start to the week.
