Appartement Malar A ★★★
A couple of months AFTER WE PAID full amount covering the 6 days stay, we received from Interhome detailed information concerning the key pick up strategy. On this occasion, we also received their offering transportation from Airport to Interhome office and Appartment for more than a 100 Euros. We instead, decided to go on our own, taking the Air France bus line from Orly Airport , taxi to the office and a bus to the apartment , spending all together not more than 40 Euros. The problem was that effectively, as they had previously indicated, Interhome office for key pickup, opened at 15,00 and we had arrived at 12,00. For our surprise, Interhome office was opened but key pickup started ONLY at 15,00!! They did not even let us leave our luggage there in the office. So, we decided go for lunch to a nearby restaurant, and wait until the time for picking up the key. When we finally arrived to the apartment, we found out, it had not been cleaned after the last guest. We called up the office and Interhome staff were very concerned. We left for walking and the apartment had been cleaned when we returned. We must also say, that calling up the office was a problem, for those of us not carrying a mobile phone which can be used in Europe. So a recommendation would be to have an available telephone line with a prepaid card or similar. After this one first day of our arrival, EVERYTHING WAS REALLY EXCELLENT. Appartment was spacious, in a very nice condominium, and extremely well located!!
This apartment is extremely recommended if you want a home like feeling in Paris. The agency gives you a flyer when you check-in which states that you are going to live like a Parisian which is exactly what this apartment is about. It is in a very calm and a peaceful neighborhood. Most of the things are so close by - like grocery shops, boutiques, cafes, pharmacies, bakery and Eiffel tower. You can also walk to other major landmarks like Louvre museum, Arc de Triomphe, Notre Dame, Grand Palais and many more. The apartment is equipped with a fully fledged kitchen. You can do your own laundry too. The agency staff were extremely helpful in providing me with information about hospitals as my 18 month old daughter fell sick for a few days. Free and fast Wi-Fi was another advantage. Highly recommended.But just bear in mind that this is an apartment and not a hotel.
