Which of these Apartments in 1st or 6th Arrondissements - Any Advice Welcome!

Jump to last reply

Hello,

We are a family of four, two adults and two girls ages 19 and 16 travelling to Paris for the first time at the end of May 2009. We would really like to stay in an apartment while we are there.
On the advice of my daughter's college French professor who is from Paris, we are looking in the 1st, 5th and 6th Arrondissements. We really would like a 2 bedroom/2 bath apartment which narrows down our search quite a bit, but I have come up with at least 3 that seem nice and fit our taste and needs.

I am trying to be very careful with our selection as we stayed in apartments in Italy 3 years ago and had a couple of pretty bad experiences with the location, owners etc. I want to really cover all bases this time before making our final decision.

Below are the links to three apartments we are considering for our trip.
Has anyone stayed in any of these or can you give any input as to the area they are located etc?

We will be visiting Paris for the first time and doing all of the usual tourist things...Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Palace of Versailles. I have not gotten to much of those details yet as apartment hunting is first. My girls love to shop and we would like to be in a neighborhood with restaurants, shops and some activity, but not a loud and super busy area.

I am hoping that someone has stayed in one of these apartments or had experiences with these rental agencies and can give some insight.
Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

I should mention that we are open to other areas of Paris as well. I am not fixed on these.

Thank you so much in advance.

Beth
