About listing

If you plan vacation or business trip in PARIS, be our guest in this unique duplex full of history, just a short walk from the Eiffel Tower (10 minutes) in the 15th arrondissement of Paris in the border of the 7th and the Champ de Mars. This 65m2 three rooms ground and first floor duplex can comfortably accommodate 4 guests. Is featuring on the first flloor one bedroom + two single beds on an open mezzanine and on the ground a large living room with an open kitchen. A nice story to tell: the ateliers d’artistes hosted engineers that designed la Tour Eiffel. The building is unique, it was built by Eiffel at the end of the 19th century, to host engineers that created the Eiffel Tower. The “ateliers” were later converted into 4 loft style apartments. We have been leaving there for more than 10 years. It was just fully renovated in fine Art Deco style: large white stained-glass windows (designed by famous artist Ronald Penell), furnitures and paintings. The duplex: - romantic and quiet, the independent bedroom has a large queen size bed (160x200) fitted with quality bed sheets, pillows and a duvet to guarantee a good night sleep. It has large storage spaces. - the mezzanine is overlooking the living area and has two single beds (90x190) and a desk with an iMac; - the fully equipped kitchen is circled with a bar opening on a large living area with a dining table for 6 and a lounge area with one sofa and two armchairs ; - there are 2 bathrooms: the one downstairs with shower and toilet, the one upstairs with bath, toilet and washing + drying machines.

    The apartment is amazing, it has enough room for 4 or even 5 people. Kitchen is great. Two bathrooms are new and clean. The location is perfect, it is in walking distance from many attractions and in a very nice neighborhood. The owners are very sweet and go above and beyond to please their customers. Next time we will stay there again. 12 July 2016 - 11:12:00

    Everything was great and exactly as explained. The owners were very kind and helpful. The location was ideal. Close to trains, great food, great bakeries and of course the Eiffel Tower! I strongly recommend it. 20 July 2016 - 22:51:00

    The apartment is beautiful and Jean-Christophe has thought of almost everything! I'll make this simple and list the positives and a couple (very) minor suggestions below: Positives: beautiful clean apartment, fully stocked kitchen with everything you could possibly need to cook or drink, wonderful selection of coffee/tea/espresso/biscuits, ice packs in the freezer (came in handy for sore muscles!), 2 full bathrooms, master bath has lots of shelves and a close up mirror (nice touch), Jean-Christophe made sure someone was there to let us in and and check us out at the times we needed (so much better than a hotel!), each person provided a large bath towel/med towel/washcloth mitt for the duration of stay (wash cloth mitt was a nice touch), firm bed (good for your back), couple minute walk to the Dupleix subway and couple minute walk to shops, cafe's, etc... FANTASTIC PLACE TO STAY! A few minor suggestions and this place will be perfect: a full length mirror would be nice so we can see how we look from head to toe, possibly add a couple extra pillows for those who like to sleep with 2 each, put Lysol or air freshener spray in the bathrooms, offer body lotion in the bathrooms, get a new tea strainer (it kept leaving tea leaves in my tea), that's it, as you can see these are very minor, this place is so great!! 23 May 2016 - 18:31:00

    Many positives about this place the best being that we dealt only with the owner, Jean-Christophe. This apartment is well appointed and maintained and was a perfect fit for our family of four. Nice Grenelle neighborhood with everything you need within a couple minute radius. A short walk to the Eiffel and Champ de Mars and two metro stops nearby. We have rented through VRBO many times and I highly recommend this place. Thanks again Jean C! 01 February 2017 - 19:04:00

    We were so pleased with this charming loft apartment. It was roomy and comfortable, and clean. The location was great, a 13 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, and a 4 minute walk to the Metro. The owner was very nice and helpful to us. He even arranged for a taxi to take us to the airport at 5:30 am. Because this building was built by Gustavo Eiffel for his engineers, I felt like the spirit of the Eiffel Tower was here. Thank you Jean-Christophe for a wonderful stay! 24 April 2017 - 03:01:00

    We had a lovely time in the apartment. It is well situated, newly renovated and fully furnished. We very much recommend it. 24 April 2017 - 04:44:00

    What a wonderful stay in Paris! Jean-Christophe is a wonderful host and the apartment is perfect. We had our two teenage children staying with us and we were all very comfortable. There are a couple of Metro Stations in walking distance (which make it very easy to get to wherever you want to go), as well as a supermarket, patisserie/bolangerie and some lovely local restaurants. We thoroughly recommend this beautiful apartment. Thank you Jean-Christophe. 21 April 2017 - 17:52:00

    Overall this property was great. It was spacious for my family of 4 and we enjoyed having 2 bathrooms. It's in a great location, near the Eiffel Tower, several bakeries and a Metro stop. We felt it was a safe neighborhood and nothing was misrepresented. The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 was for lack of communication, more or less. We knew the property didn't come with air-conditioning, however, in the middle of July this apartment is MISERABLY hot. After our first sleepless night, I emailed the owner who arranged for one fan to be delivered. It was still too hot. Miserably hot. I realize the owner does not control the weather, but being a Paris resident, they are fully aware of the conditions without any cooling. Also, unlike other owners I've had that go above and beyond to be a "host" and offer suggestions, tips, guidance for your stay, we did not find that to be true with this property. They owners were very "hands off"; actually we never even met them, but instead checked in with the nanny and checked out with the grounds keeper. That additional touch can make a huge difference in your vacation, but again, that is not reflective of the property itself, but of our overall stay. 02 August 2016 - 20:55:00

    The apartment was just lovely and the hosts were helpful but not intrusive, they were able to find a good and appropriate balance. While the other reviews said it was unbearably hot in the summer I'd say it was reasonably hot. After our first day we learned how To do this or that to ensure it would be as cool as possible; such as keeping the main blinds drawn and cracking the upstairs window and leaving the small AC on when possible.. yes it could have been cooler but really it could have been hotter so we were happy. Would definitely recoomend and stay again! Thank you for the wonderful place to stay! 12 June 2017 - 09:39:00

    What a great place. I took my Grand daughters to Paris after a visit to Normandy. The apartment was just great, near good shops and grocery stores. Once you walked around a bit you got the lay of the land and it was perfect. Yes only a short walk to the Eiffel tower and park, just great. The apartment it self was neat and clean with all anyone would want for a stay in Paris, close walk to the Bus 69, you can look that up. Jean_ Christophe has done a great job and maintained the property well. Thank You I would tell anyone to stay there, I know I will again in 2019. Grandpa Tim 24 June 2017 - 16:43:00

    We just recently stayed at this apartment in Paris. The location was great!! A 15 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower, grocery store right around the corner, a wonderful bakery that had amazing croissants just one block away, we could not have asked for a better located apartment for our needs. I would recommend this arrangement for a family with kids, probably not for two couples. The bed arrangements were a double in a private room with a bathroom ensuite and then two twin beds outside in an open loft area. kitchen was well appointed, full sized appliances. (ie dishwasher, stove). great washer AND Dryer (very unusual to have a dryer). All in all, a great stay. 01 May 2017 - 22:00:00

    Just love this apartment! We have stayed twice and loved it! Great location quiet and Jean is a wonderful host! We would go back in a second. 19 July 2017 - 22:58:00

    We had a lovely time in this beautiful apartment with a very responsive host. We traveled with our elderly parents so accessibility in the apartment and to transportation was very important. The RER train station was an easy walk and brought us to all the major sites. Jean-Christophe and family have thought of everything to make his guests feel comfortable. He was even willing to arrange for our transportation back to the airport. Thank you! 14 October 2017 - 13:17:00

    Great central location very close to the Eiffel Tower and close to restaurants, groceries, etc. Our family of four is in pretty good shape so we walked 5-6 miles a day (round trip) to see different sights, but the metro and busses were very close too. There's a Velib bike station close as well (very cool rent-a-bike program in Paris- would have totally used this but didn't feel safe with our kids in pretty crazy city traffic). It was a very safe neighborhood, even the taxi driver who brought us there from the airport said we had chosen well. There's a neighborhood park a few blocks away with kids toys for families with young kids. The apartment was nicely furnished, and I guess quite large by Paris standards. Not exactly two bedroom since sofa bed in loft is the other sleeping area next to master bedroom but fine for parents with kids or four friends (two couples would need to toss coin for privacy). Owner Jean is very nice and speaks English fluently. We had a great two weeks here and enjoyed being able to cook our own food, since restaurants are expensive! Would definitely stay here again! 24 August 2014 - 18:50:56

    My wife, 18 yo son and I stayed in this wonderful apartment the last week of October 2015. The apartment was wonderful and is exactly as described. The location is on a very quiet street and is just a few minutes walk from the Metro and a 10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. The owner was easy to work with and very responsive. A great place to stay in Paris! 31 October 2015 - 11:24:30

    Jean Christophes place was the perfect getaway for our Parisian adventure! Only a few blocks away from the metro and the Eiffel Tower, in a safe and quiet neighborhood with wonderful shops and restaurants nearby, with perfect accommodations, what more could you ask for! And, he even stopped by with a bottle of champagne! Thanks so much for hosting us, and Im so happy we were able to stay here. Highly highly recommended! 19 December 2017 - 15:05:00

    This is a lovely flat located a short walk from the 6 train and 15 minute walk at most from the Eiffel Tower. Cafe's, and delicious patisseries, wine stores, Franprix and Monoprix (groceries and more) also located with walking distance. It was a perfect place to spend our evenings after long days of "touristing" the sights of Paris. My only complaint (and not even worth a star which is why I gave it 5) extra blankets would have been nice:) 02 January 2018 - 18:04:00

    Ah Paris a wonderful city. This property has to be one of the best facilities and in an area so close to the Eiffel Tower, the Seine river and in a wonderful neighborhood you could not go wrong! The apartment is well furnished with everything one needs for a short or long stay. The building entrance is secure with the apartment on the first floor. There are windows one one whole wall so the apartment can be filled with light, but for sleeping there is a automated screen to make sleeping very comfortable. Jean-Christophe lives on an upper floor so he is there should you need him. He has provided a warm and comfortable place, well decorated with all the amenities including coffee for the stay. There are many small grocery stores, bakeries and pharmacy within a short walk along with a variety of restrauants. We did go up in the Eiffel Tower and we would recommend the visit even with the lines. We also got a two day passes to "hop on hop off" a Seine river cruise with Batobus. This was a wonderful way to get to other areas to investigate some wonder sites. Check it out to see if this might work for your trip. If you are looking for a very comfortable apartment near the Eiffel Tower and surrounding attractions this is a fabulous option. 05 January 2018 - 15:43:00

    Wir haben unsere Parisurlaub in dieser Unterkunft verbracht. Leider war die Wohnung absolut nicht so, wie erwartet. Das einzigst Positive ist die Lage. Als wir ankamen bei der Wohnung ffnete niemand die Tre. Darauf hin suchten wir uns erst eine Parkmglichkeit. Bei der Rckkehr (ca. 30 Min.) spter, ffnete immer noch keiner die Tre. Zufllig kam eine Anwohnerin vorbei, die dort wohnte. Die nette Dame benachrichtige die Vermieter und so kamen wir endlich hinein. Als wir reinkamen, war die Heizung vollkommen aufgedreht. Diese konnte man auch nicht regulieren. Die Lftung in den Bder machte ebenfalls was sie wollte. Die Kche und die Bder waren komplett zu gestaubt. Das ntigste, wie die Handtuchheizung, Becher etc. mussten wir erst mal selber sauber machen. Die Betten sind eine Katastrophe. Knarrend und unbequem, als ob diese jeden Moment zusammen brechen. Des Weiteren ist die Wohnung absolut hellhrig. Man hrt alles von Nachbarn und auf der Strae. Die groe Glasfront lsst sich nicht verdunkeln (nur durch eine hellbeige Rollo, dass absolut nichts bringt) und man schlft quasi im hellen (da direkt vor der Wohnung Laternen sind). Wir werden mit Sicherheit diese Wohnung nicht wieder buchen und knnen diese auch nicht weiter empfehlen. 29 November 2016 - 13:45:00
