Perfect place for a family vacation. It's well equipped if you want a meal in. Thankfully its air conditioned as we were there during a heat wave.
The Champs Elysees apartment was very nice and would meet with the high standards that most Americans are accustomed to when traveling in the US. The AC was very important as it was really hot that week which is unusual in Paris. The beds were comfortable and the open living area and kitchen were very nice and well decorated. We stayed in 3 different apartments while in Europe and the other two were big disappointments but the Haven in Paris apartment was very nice and thankfully that is where we spent the most time.
Haven in Paris made it so very easy to find an elegant apartment in Paris and secure it in USD via credit card. They were always so punctual and informative with any questions and the greeter on site was great to have as well. The apartment was absolutely gorgeous, the view cannot be beat, and it is in a very upscale part of Paris so we felt very safe and had plenty of restaurant options, easy walk to tour buses, metro and to the Arc! (Also Uber is super handy anywhere in Paris.) Having a glass of wine watching the Eiffel do its light up dance at night is a personal highlight. I will be back!
Centrally located executive quality apartment rental with views exactly as shown on the web, incredible. Property was exceptionally clean and well appointed. Great bedding, towels, appliances dinner ware ect... Printer on site to print attraction tickets boarding passes. Quality high speed internet and free north america phone calling crystal clear. Walking distance to all major attractions, great restaurants, bakeries and butchers. Simply First Class which made for incredible family memories. We will definitely rent with Haven in Paris again.
The Champs Elysees property was just perfect for us. From the size and convenience to the unbeatable views, we couldn't have asked for me. Mika was an absolute delight who went out of her way for us and did whatever she could to make our stay an enjoyable one. (Sorry to miss you on the way out, Mika!) The flat was cleaned and presented quite well and the kitchen had absolutely everything you could need for a comfortable stay. The convenience to the metro and the Champs Elysees were major bonuses and we had no problems at all getting wherever we needed to go around the city. The provided laptop also ended up being a big help for a few work issues that popped up. Do not hesitate to rent this lovely property - or any other - from Haven in Paris. They are a top notch operation.
Great place, excellent situation, very confortable, easy acces, easy shopping. We' ll be back for sure. Un apartamento situado en un lugar inmejorable de Paris, con espacios muy cómodos y con todas las facilidades posibles para una gran estancia. Sin duda volveremos.
The rental property far exceeded my expectations. The apartment was excellently located, with a balcony view of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Everything was fastidious. The kitchen equipped for all uses. Very fast WIFI. Lovely linens and pillows (important!) We made do with the bathroom facilities, and that is the only thing that would have been preferable was to have another full bathroom. In all, i would definitely rent this property again. The greeter was on time, very helpful, and always available to us, even though we didn't need her.
HIP was very professional and far exceeded our expectations. Upon our reservation, they provided extensive information about our apartment as well as recommendations for services around the area. Our beautiful 3 BR 2 BA apartment was a wonderful flat for our family of 5. Located on the 3rd floor, in a safe and secure building, it was spacious and very quiet. It included wireless, air conditioning, free calls to the U.S., and a laptop. Perfectly located, it was literally 10 steps from the entrance to the Metro and the Air France Bus and a stone's throw from the Arc de Triomphe. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect rental! It helped make our visit to Paris very enjoyable and memorable!
The property was a beautifully furnished three bedroom in a wonderful location. The apartment was very spacious for our family of five and made traveling to paris with three children easy. The location was right by the metro and RER and a taxi stand so it was simple to travel. We even took the RER to Disneyland Paris! The view of the Arc was charming and it was close to the lovely shops on Victor Hugo. Mika the greeter was very accommodating and helpful. We loved walking to the famous market on Turnes to grab dinner to prepare in the apartment. The proximity to our family who live Paris was wonderful and our daughters had a wonderful visit. We hope to return in the near future!!
Awesome location, lovely apartment, well stocked & delightful to use kitchen. Super helpful greeters & flexible when we needed a late checkout! Great customer service.
HIP were excellent to do business with and a stay in this apt. made us feel like true Parisiennes, if only for a short stay. The decor and layout of this unit exemplifies the understated elegance of French life. If you enjoy cooking you will love the kitchen! Plenty of counter space, cookware, even spices! The dishwasher is super quiet. Regular ground coffee was provided w/drip coffee maker plus a full case of espresso pods for espresso maker. I went to local market (Rue Poncelet Market, I believe) and made an outstanding Boeuf Bourguignon....fresh beurre from the fromagerie was heavenly! Like many have previously stated, the view is phenomenal! Plenty of fresh towels and washcloths and space for bathroom incidentals. Water pressure was great! The wifi worked really well in the apartment and it was wonderful to call back home with unlimited calls to the United States. The metro system here is ridiculously easy to navigate which makes getting around a breeze! There's a bistro and an Italian restaurant on either side of the apt building for when your feet just cannot take any more! I would stay here a thousand times over! It is emphasized upon arrival not to lose the key! The key to the apt. comes with a key fob that opens the door to the apt building and a subsequent door inside. The keys can cost upwards of $800 Euros to replace! Needless to say we kept the keys safeguarded at all times, lol!
The whole experience dealing with HIP was fabulous. The apartment was superb and the view out of this world. My two seven year old granddaughters never went to bed - wanted to see the Eiffel Tower sparkle!! The apartment is beautifully furnished and the kitchen well equipped. Everything was handled superbly and the suggestions for tours, tickets etc were very good. We used several. Our greeter was there and came again at the end,and she was very helpful. The only bad thing - we all hated to leave. I could not recommend HIP more strongly.
Everything was perfect, and we had a great holiday in Paris. The apartment had the most important metro lines just outside and the view from the apartment was very good.
HIP was responsive, their advance materials thorough and the greeters were wonderful. The Champs Elysees property was well situated, immaculate, very comfortable and well laid out for a family of 5-6. We will definitely call on them the next time we rent an apartment in Paris.
My husband ran the Paris Marathon. The location could not have been better for this. We were six and had plenty of room and felt very comfortable. This was a great way to visit Paris for the week. The apartment is very nice and the view from the balcony is priceless.
We has an absolutely wonderful week enjoying the sites of Paris and the countryside filled with warm sunny weather, flowers blooming and each evening we came home to an excellent apartment on Carnot near the Arc de Triumphe. Close to local markets, on the doorstep of the Metro, great restaurants, walk everywhere, a perfect location. I heartily recommend Haven in Paris for their excellent service and great accommodation.
Everything was wonderful with the apartment in Paris. Mika was fantastic and informative. She worked diligently to get us into the apartment and then harder to help us get out to CDG. She is great. The unit was clean and the views and space wonderful. Thanks as always for the stellar customer service and follow through.
The apartment is otherworldly. We are having the time of our life. You’ve got yourself a client for years to come. Thank you very much.
We had a wonderful stay in this clean, well situated and spacious apartment. Our greeter Mika was excellent and took very good care of us as did our driver service/Gregory. HiP made and has made our annual Paris stay memorable. EXCELLENT service and lovely properties.
We had quite a magnificent stay in HIP's Champs Elysees apartment. Recently stayed in Jan 14 with my family of 6, there were enough beds and more with a comfy sofa bed as well 3 bedrooms. I cannot stress how fantastically located it is, with a metro entrance literally right below the apartment and a pretty surreal view of the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower. Everything was easy to get to from our location, especially the Champs Elysees itself, which is a fantastic shopping area. Even a taxi rank always loaded within 15 steps, and the same with a bus that did roundtrips from the airport and back! We arrived at the apartment which was superbly clean and set out just as professionally as a hotel. My family were very skeptical about renting a holiday apartment as we had only trusted hotels before that, but they all changed their mind when they walked in and saw the value we were getting for such an affordable price compared to a hotel. The apartment is a good size, enough for my family of 6 to gather and also have enough space to ourselves. The kitchen is beautifully renovated, and the whole apartment has a really classic French feel to it, with a touch of luxe, sophistication, and modernisation. The laundry is great and fully functional, with an easy to use manual provided. The TV had a variety of channels and a DVD player, and the internet access was truly great-- high speed and easily accessible. The bathrooms were fantastic, and HIP provided a fair amount of towels in case you get too lazy to chuck them in the wash for a while! The beds were comfortable and we were able to arrange having a double or two single beds. The heating was fully functional and worked really great considering I was always toasty inside the apartment. The apartment is easily accessible from the street, and just below are restaurant and a trendy bar that seemed to be very popular! Only minor issues were the elevator is quite small and couldn't hold a lot of weight at one time (300kg max give or take)-- although if you ask me I thought it was cute and there's nothing wrong with a bit of exercise! Also the sound on the DVD player didn't work, but again this really wasn't that big a concern for us. The pros clearly and unanimously weighed out the cons. We must give a special mention to Mika, who was our host and greeted as well as checked us out. Mika is a stuning and charismatic young lady who has ample knowledge of Paris after having lived locally for a number of years, as well as being a native-English speaker-- this made finding out where the best boulangeries, restaurants, and places of interest were for us totally easy! She made sure upon our arrival that we felt totally comfortable and settled in, as well as providing us with a manual that explained pretty much every single question you could ask about the apartment. She really helped my family and I to feel welcome, enthusiastic about our stay, and was just lovely to see and have a chat to in general! My summary of our stay would be-- brilliant! With a friendly and organised host, a comfortable yet extravagant and spacious apartment, up to date appliances, fully functional facilities, and a view that will literally take your breath away! On top of that, all the staff at HIP on the American side of the world were totally efficient and helpful, I booked the apartment last minute in the course of about 2 days with no problems at all! The staff are clearly very professional, and sociable and I was very impressed. If you're seriously looking for a great apartment in the heart of Paris to accommodate you and your group, I would 100% recommend this property, or HIP in general. I can confidently the say the quality of our accommodation greatly enhanced our trip altogether. I know for sure that the next time we stay in Paris, we will not be hesitating to book again with HIP. Thank you once again for the amazing stay, and I hope to be in contact sometime in the future! Cheers
I am so thankful I found HiP! On the day I arrived in Paris, Mika had waited for me in the Champs Elysees apartment, gave us a very warm welcome and showed us around. We were very very happy with the apartment as it was so cozy and nice! Needless to say how convenient it was to have the Metro and RER just in front our doorsteps, it was so hassle free! The view from the balcony was also breathtaking. Overall, it was a remarkable Paris experience!
The pictures don't do the apartment justice! It's AMAZING! It will exceed your expectations in every possible way. The location is so good is almost funny. The property is cozy, elegant and well equipped. AND THE VIEW! THE VIEW! You will NOT find a better view in Paris. For some strange reason the tower looks farther than it is when seen with your naked eye. Get some croissants down the block and sip some hot chocolate for breakfast in the balcony. Finally: location, location location! If you take the Air France bus from CDG, it drops you IN FRONT of the building. You have a bakery, a butcher shop and a wine shop just a block away. A groceries and convenience store literally 20 steps away and the entrance to the metro is in front of the building.
Sitting here in our Paris Apt. awaiting final walk-thur with Mika, I wanted to take a moment to share just how exceptional our stay and experience with Haven In Paris (HIP) has been. From our first inquiry and the several additional questions that we had the HIP team was very professional and helpful with our every question and concern as first time visitors to Paris and vacation apartment renters. "Champs" was a pleasure to stay in; after a long day of enjoying Paris, we couldn't imagine a better place to come to rest our weary "feet" from a full and wonderful day. Mika, as our contact and greeter was helpful and quite a cheery site when we first arrived. She provided us a complete overview of the Apt and what we could expect while spending time in Paris. Thank you to you all; we look forward to our next opportunity to be clients of HIP. Oh, by the way, you asked "would you recommend HIP to others?" - I already have! Yvonne, Margaret, Theeda, Paula and Felecia
Mika, our greeter, was there to meet us on time, apartment was very clean, and was perfect for us!
We are a family of 3 children and a nanny. The apartment is great and very comforting. The best location ever, many attractions nearby. The greeter, Mika, is a very nice, warm, helpful person. The apartment is as nice as it looks in the pictures in HIP website. I strongly recommend it.
My family and I recently stayed at the HIP Champs Elysees flat in Paris and had a wonderful time. There were 7 of us total and we all had plenty of room. The people at HIP were exremely easy to work with and checked in multiple times before, durring, and after our stay. The greeter at the flat in Paris was so nice and helpful as well! The flat looks just like it does in the photo's, they are current, it will live up to your expectations. The location is perfect and the view off the balcony is breath taking. It was our first trip to Europe, and Paris was a fantastic first choice!
My experience was excellent. The reservation staff were helpful and answered all my questions prior to and after booking - there were no surprises. Our greeter was friendly and helpful and attentive to our needs. The apartment was just as beautiful as the pictures online and met our needs. I would recommend Haven in Paris to my family and friends.
I have nothing but good things to say about Haven in Paris or the Champs Elysees property. It is a terrific location. Every morning we visited the local street market and picked up fresh bread, fruit and cheese for our breakfast and lunches. I would highly recommend that people use your concierge Alison Abomnes to help with the details of their stay. She is a terrific resource and her services are a bargain. The property was very clean and was everything that I expected. I have absolutely no complaints. If I were to take my family back to Paris, we will stay in the same property.
We were 100% pleased with the flat in Paris - it was very comfortable, roomy, nicely decorated and fully equipped! The location was fabulous and the view from the balcony spectacular! Mika was our greeter and she did a great job. She immediately took care of one issue with the heat and was very knowledgeable about the apartment and the area. We did not make use of any other service providers that would have been recommended by HiP (drivers, tour guides, etc.). The flat was very neat and clean and I really don't have any suggestions for improvement because everything was perfect for our stay! We hope to return to Paris one day soon and will absolutely stay in this flat again as well as recommend it to friends who travel.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Champs Elysees property. It was beautiful, clean, comfortable, and perfectly located in a wonderful area in Paris - and right on the subway line so we could easily get anywhere. The apartment was not only beautiful, but was stocked with the comforts of home - so we could easily enjoy cooking at the apartment and enjoy our morning espresso. The Haven in Paris team was wonderful tow ork with as well!
Our family of 5 had a great week in Paris. The stay was certainly enhanced by the quality of the apartment at 4 Carnot. The position was excellent - very central, right next door to a metro station and with an awesome view of the Arc. The apartment itself was of very high quality, very clean and the greeter very helpful. If we had our time again, we wouldn't change a thing! Thanks.
Our family of 2 Adults and 2 Teenager plus Grandparents - stayed in Paris for 8 days over Christmas. We highly recommend Haven in Paris. The apartment was so convenient to the subway which took us where we wished to go, the hop-on hop-off bus, shops etc. The rooms were all large and everything you could think of provided. The view of the Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe fantastic. Greeter Mika was great as was David who chauffeured us to the airport.
Everything about the apartment was wonderful. It's beautifully decorated; it's right AT the Etoile Metro stop; and the view of the city is wonderful! We would recommend this apartment to anyone going to Paris and have already told several friends. Mika, our greeter, made everything easy for us and gave us great tips about the neighborhood. Even the cafe on the corner was terrific.
We had another wonderful stay at the Carnot apartment. We found the apartment to be very clean, beautifully presented and ideally located. Mika, our greeter, was very welcoming and helpful throughout our stay. The Haven in Paris Team were extremely supportive when I had my handbag stolen on a shopping trip. This was our second stay at the Carnot apartment and we hope to be able to return in another couple of years.
I wanted to first thank you and the rest of the HIP team for a wonderful stay in Paris. The beds are super comfortable and the space was just right for 7 of us. Of course the view was so beautiful it was great to wake up to breakfast sitting in view of the Arc and eiffel tower. We even saw the fireworks by the Eiffel Tower from our balcony - a great way to end our trip! We found the Metro so easy to use since it was right outside our door and the 1 line was accessible to all the major sights and to all the other lines! As we had mentioned to you, you all thought of everything!. From the adapters for the power outlets, to the extra umbrellas and all the kitchen supplies you would ever need for a week's stay in Paris. The night before we left we needed some tape for packing, and I searched because I figured HIP would have thought of this as well - and lo and behold there was tape in one of the kitchen drawers. The computer access was also so helpful, to gain access for emails and to just do quick research on things about Paris, like what were museum hours. Victoria helped provide some sanity with her daily cleaning, so I highly recommend anyone's who stays should pay the extra for daily maid service. With 3 kids and 4 adults, it would have been hard to come to a messy apartment after a day of sightseeing. Mika was our greeter and very informative, friendly and warm. She made us feel truly welcome! She even took the trouble of going out of her way to get an air mattress, since my son did not want to sleep on their lovely sofabed, but to share in the room with his siblings. Some other little things that add to the wonder, beauty and convenience of the apartment is the elevator, the proximity to places like the street market, other great restaurants and grocery My in laws needed respite from stairs after a day of touring, so even if the elevator was small it was a big asset. The dvd multizone player allowed us to play some dvd's from home,and it helped keep things familiar and homey for the kids since we played some of their favorite movies. Plenty of storage space so one isn't tripping all over one's luggage. If there would be something to add, it would be just to add some guidance in the booklet about where one can exchange money and a listing of church services. I wish HIP would expand out to other cities because their management, maintenance and pick of rentals are superb!
Your greeter Mika was really kind to us. All of us appreciate to her. Just let you know, some of ants appeared at main bathroom and shower room. We were OK but I recommend you investigate it. Note from HIP: The apartment manager has taken care of the ants. :-)
The apartment was lovely and so well situated in the city. The kitchen was well equipped and there were plenty of towels for the 7 of us! The views from the balcony were amazing. The only thing I would caution on is the bathroom situation. It is advertised as a 2.5 bathroom unit, but it is really just 2. The toilets are in 2 separate rooms and then the showers are in 2 others. It was still ok for the 7 of us. The water pressure was great! We loved our stay at the apartment and would recommend it highly. Make sure you check out the local market which operates every day. It was yummy! Please note: There are two W.C.s in this apartment; they are both located in separate rooms from the two main bathrooms. The two main bathrooms (one with a shower, one with a bathtub), do not have W.C.s in them.
We had a great time in Champs Elysees Apartment and Paris. The property is very nice and the locaion is great. The greeter was gently and helpful. We really recommend it.
We were greeted my Mika as soon as our car pulled up in the street, she was so welcoming and friendly. The apartment was even better than the photos, it was spacious, comfortable and had everything that was needed to make our stay so special. It is in the best position, the location was perfect for us as we were out exploring everyday and so easy to find our way back. It was like a home away from home!
Haven in Paris were great (helpful and professional) and I'd happily use them again. Our family of 5 (two adults and three teenagers) stayed in the Carnot apartment and it was spaciously and attractive. The building is lovely and the apartment had a Parisian feel. The floorboards are incredibly creaky (old building) so groups with young children might be bothered by the creaking when they're trying to get children to sleep - but it didn't bother us. Carnot was a good base for us in Paris. Thanks HIP!
We could not believe how wonderful and spacious this apartment was. Location is amazing, and you can indeed see both the Arc de triomphe AND the Eiffel Tower from your balcony! We were in Paris for 10 days for a family wedding and because of the great stores and markets within a short walk, and the fully equipped kitchen, we prepaired and ate most meals in the apartment. Washer and dryer were a Godsend. Our tours of Paris were all just a few metro stops away. The metro was right at our front door. We would not hesitate to recommend this property! DM Toronto Canada
We had a wonderful time at Hip's Carnot property. I will definitely recommend it to others AND use Hip again. Hip was very responsive throughout the booking process. I was put at ease knowing it was an American company (Boston based) with a BBB rating. The Carnot apartment was wonderful! It exceeded our expectations! I could not believe it, the flat was actually better than the photos! We loved the location, view and proximity to the subway. The linen quality was excellent and the mattresses/beds were very comfy. It was so clean; it was spotless. Shower pressure was excellent in both showers and we NEVER ran out of hot water. It was great having instructions on all the appliances and all the finishes were top notch. We appreciated all the little things like soap, paper towels, hairdryers, American DVDs, wine and fresh flowers. Our greeter helped to familiarize us with the apartment and area. I was thrilled we were loaned a Mac Book! Somehow, I missed or forgot we would be getting this! The minor negatives are: the floors creaked A LOT, and the bathroom layout is a tad odd but this did not bother us. We loved Carnot and would stay again!
The Carnot property and the team from Haven in Paris are exceptional. We are a family of 6 and the property easily accommodated our needs during our 7 day stay. It is well appointed, very clean and comfortable. Our greeter accommodated our schedules and was very helpful in familiarization, local recommendations and kept in touch to see that all was going well. The location of the property is ideal for getting around town as it is right above the Charles DeGaulle - Etoile metro and RER station. Even the view from the balcony was an unexpected delight. I highly recommend this property and Haven in Paris in general.
We were travelling with a toddler, a baby, and both sets of grandparents, so we needed 3 bedrooms, and we needed clean. For the same as 3 hotel rooms, we got a whole lot more at the Carnot property. Although compact, a lot of amenities fit into the property. Everyone was very comfortable (except for some noise at night from the neighbour beside the small bedroom) and it was clean enough for my mother. Before we arrived, I had worried about the location, as I had stayed more centrally in the past, but being near the metro and able to practically touch the Arc de Triomph made up for it. We could also walk to a park with a play area in about 5 minutes. We used Michael as our driver to pick us up at the train station. He was fantastic, but of course expensive. In our case with 8 passengers and luggage, and nervous travellers in our group it made the transition easier. We will definitely use HIP again, and for those who can afford it, enjoy!
Haven in Paris made our Paris trip a smooth and pleasurable experience from start to finish. Many companies struggle to interact with customers using email but HiP has ironed out this communication channel very well and is a model for other online businesses. The printed contract documentation, property guides, the greeting process and the quick email responses ensure confidence with dealing with HiP. As far as the property is concerned, here are a few suggestions: The water pressure in the shower needs to be addressed, it's barely a trickle; the shower in the room with the bath really needs a shower curtain to avoid splashes onto the floor*; some tie-back system on the windows would be great as they blow close when there's a breeze; the floor boards could really use a bit more glue! I know Paris apartments are old and suffer from this, but the corridor boards are crazy loose; some of the teflon coated frypans and pots need to be replaced as scratched teflon is a known carcinogen.** HIP Note: *The water pressure in Paris tends to be a bit weaker than in other major cities, but we'll be looking into this with the owner. **Regarding the tie-back system, floor boards, and teflon coated pans, we are working with the owner to improve these now.
I just wanted to tell you thank you for a wonderful experience. This was the first time I rented a furnished appartment as I always stayed in hotels, and this stay made me a believer. Will never again stay in hotels when you are a better solution. The location was impeccable. Evelyne, the greeter was a sweet heart, and gave us worthwhile tips. The place was clean and comfortable. There is absolutely nothing to change; we will definitely come back again.
We were delighted with our experience with Haven in Paris. The apartment on Avenue Carnot was lovely and the location was ideal. The Haven in Paris representative met us at the apartment and she was terrific.
The flat was casual which was great for us because we had three small children in our party. However, I don't think this particular property is well suited for small children otherwise. We were very strongly cautioned to keep the noise down--take off shoes so as not to disturb, no noise in stairwell, etc. Consequently we were a little stressed trying to keep the children quiet and still. Mika was very friendly and helpful but I think very concerned about the three small children. We were very pleased with Michael's car service. We had him meet us at the train station upon our arrival and deliver us to CDG when we departed. The drivers were prompt and helped us with our mountain of luggage. The view from the terrace is unbeatable and was enjoyed day and night. The proximity to the Metro was a real bonus for us. The numerous restaurants and the food market and Monoprix nearby were also pluses for us. Overall, our stay was great and a visit to Paris we will always remember. NOTE FROM HIP: This property is in a residential building and we do ask clients to be mindful of any extra loud noises that may disturb the neighbors. Despite that, we believe this property is well suited to families with children.
The location was very good, near the subway station with access to all of Paris. The apartment has incredible views from the balcony of the Arc du Triomphe and Eiffel Tower. Great picture opportunities at night. Our greeter Mika really made everything special. She is absolutely amazing! She even went out of her way to translate a few phrases for us to take to dinner since one of the people in our party had food allergies. The espresso machine in the kitchen was our favorite feature and we appreciated the generous supply of espresso pods. One feature that was different and not quite as positive was that the two toilets are separate from the shower and bath areas. One toilet was in the laundry room and did not have a sink. The other toilet with a sink was off the living room. The beds are very comfortable and we slept very well. Next time we might look at renting another property with combination bathroom/toilets. Overall, much better than renting a hotel. HIP NOTE: We try to be very clear with our property descriptions and note the facilities within each of this property's bathrooms. We'll make sure to emphasize this separation in the future.
We loved the apartment, the location, the many local restaurants and the feeling of the area. The apartment was just right for us, especially with two children. The layout worked very well. The kitchen was just right and the view was spectacular. The apartment was exactly as described on the website. I always look carefully at the floor plan so I understood the location and size of the rooms and bathrooms, toilets, etc. and there were no surprises. This was also my experience renting from Haven in Paris in the Marais two years ago. We found both apartments to be exactly as advertised and perfectly suited to our needs. We will rent again from HIP when we come back next year. It is a great agency and I am delighted to have such a resource for my visits to Paris. My husband took many pictures day and night from the balcony. Also David the driver picked us up at the airport and was just wonderful.
Everything was great, thank you! Loved the location. Mika was wonderful.
Our Avenue Carnot apartment was wonderful. Great space, great views and well appointed. We had wondered about the potential of noise, but it was no issue whatsoever. Our greeter was fantastic... both for our arrival and our departure. The fresh flowers and the bottle of wine were a nice touch too. This is the second time using Haven in Paris for an apartment and I will be back to their site and Paris as soon as possible.
Just home from Paris and it was beyond fabulous!!!! We LOVED the apartment....location was perfect and it had comfort, charm and we felt very safe at night!!! Thank you for all you did to help make our trip great.... we truly enjoyed crashing at night, cooking dinner and breakfast in our little "haven in paris"....also, the driver that took us to airport was excellent...Jacques! made it in 30 minutes, very early, but better safe than sorry. MANY THANKS FOR EVERYTHING!!!! AU REVOIR!!!!
What fond memories we have of our week in Paris staying on Carnot Avenue. Everything exceeded our expectations. Our greeter, Mika, was not only professional but charming and was eager to help out in any and every way throughout our visit. The apartment itself was lovely...with all the comforts of home. Once we had made a trip to the market for food, we cooked dinner and made breakfast with ease, as the kitchen was furnished with all that we could have possibly needed. And lastly, the apartment was conveniently located for both catching the metro and for taking the Air France bus to and from the airport. We just hope all our future vacations will be so perfect as ours was with you! We have already been recommending Haven in Paris and will definitely contact you again before our next visit.
GREAT location. Next to the metro, the train station, the taxi stand,the bus stop and public parking. Wonderful view of the Arch de Triumph and the Eiffel Tower. Neighborhood is charming with many shops, grocery stores, restaurants and a daily farmer's market. Very convenient. The furnishings are not super, but they function OK. The apartment has lots of light and is quite quiet. The appliances are super- everything you can think of and the air-conditioning was a blessing during the several hot and humid days that occurred. The TV was excellent with many stations. I watched American football and the Ryder Cup. The HIP representative could not have been more charming, helpful and responsive. We were VERY pleased and plan to return next year. In fact we have already booked the apartment for 2011.
Thank you for providing us a wonderful experience in Paris. You and your staff went beyond norms to make us feel welcome...you showed us all aspects of the apartment, made sure we knew how to play the available video movie systems, and you gave guidance to local interesting restaurants...and we were very appreciative. The apartment you provided was charming, with metro access right outside our apt exit. You recommended Andy pick us up at the airport (he also took us back there)...he was prompt, a lot of fun on the ride, and provided intellectual conversation with my adult children who loved talking with him.
The property we rented was great. it was in a wonderful spot and easy access. We had a wonderful driver, Jacques, who helped us so much and was a wealth of information about the city and its history. It was a hot week in Paris and whilst we had air conditioning, this did not really help. It would be beneficial to look into fans or get the air conditioning serviced. We did not sleep very well because of this. Note From HIP: We have asked the owner to purchase some extra fans for the apartment. Very hot days like the ones mentioned are rare in Paris, but do occasionally happen. We will also make sure the AC is serviced and in top working order.
It's not often that I go through the effort to post comments. It must be a really good or really bad experience. Fortunately, this comment is inspired by a most pleasant experience end-to-end. Each step of the way was personable and professional. Our greeter was charming. This apartment felt like a home away from home. I will miss the balcony most. The greeter was amazing. She definitely went out of her way to make for a pleasant arrival and departure. The flowers and wine are nice touches. Helping with our luggage. Walk through of apartment. Very cool. Kudos! Everything was clean and well groomed. Loved having the Nespresso machine with filled box. Great touch! Kitchen was well stocked. Great to have champagne and wine glasses in abundance. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Comfortable and well stocked linens. My expectations are very high and this apartment exceeded them. We will most definitely be returning here or trying their other properties in years to come.
Experience with Haven in Paris was very professional and pleasant. Property was as pictured and we were pleasantly happy with the location of the property. Mika was a great help and an excellent manager for the property. I would suggest maybe some throws in the family room on the sofa so when it is cold you can get cozy without moving to the bedroom.
We appreciated the last minute availability of the apartment. Excellent access to rer and metro -- could not possibly be closer or more convenient. Postcard Paris is just outside the window with fantastic Arc and Eiffel views (especially at night when the Eiffel tower is sparkling). Downsides of the apartment included master bedroom in the back away from the windows with terrific views, and odd bathrooms with elevated shower stalls and weak water pressure/not enough hot water for simultaneous showers in both bathrooms. Kitchen amenities were terrific, including Nespresso machine. Beautiful old building had lots of charm. Elevator very convenient as well.
We loved staying in the apartment on Carnot. It was so very handy to the Metro, and to the Arc, the Eiffel Tower, and Champs Elysées, and the many wonders of Paris. The view from the balcony is not to be believed. The apartment was comfortable and beautifully appointed. Our greeter, Mika, was lovely, gracious, helpful, and utterly charming. Her flowers and wine gift made our welcome complete. We have recommended you to our friends, and when we come back, we will certainly stay with your organization again. Thank you for helping make our trip so memorable.
We just got back from an "amazing trip" where we stayed at Avenue Carnot. The apartment was an excellent choice for seven girls to celebrate my mother's 80th birthday!It offered every luxury of home! To look out our balcony with a glass of wine in our hand starring at the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower sparkling, was to say the least surreal! From Michael our driver(who was ever so patient when our flight was a bit delayed) to Mika our greeter, who could not have been more welcoming and showed us everything we needed to know for our stay. We will definetly be returning, I miss the croissants and baguettes already!
Travelling with my husband, father and 4 yo daughter all the way to Europe from Australia could have been quite daunting but our experience at "our" Paris apartment was a breeze. We had all the comforts of home plus a few new ones. "Nespresso anyone?" The apartment was superbly located for transport which was great for young tired legs and old ones. The lift was a welcome sight at the end of the day. The apartment was our cosy home filled with the scents of croissants in the morning and garlic baked snails at night. The nearby markets were filled with irresistible offerings. The beds were all supremely comfortable and even doing the laundry seemed easy and exotic in between trips to the Musee D'Orsay and the Eiffel Tower. Would I change anything? Only to swap myself with the current inhabitants...
The reservation and process and all the correspondences with HIP were great. They were very professional and replied quickly to all my questions. It was my mom's friends that stayed in the apartment and they were very comfortable in it. I would say 5 persons for the apartment would be perfect. Six persons would be too tight for this place since it is not that big, and the sofa bed in the living room can only fit a child . But more than the place and its convenience, my mom's friends were pleased with the service of Mika the greeter, who would constantly check on them to see if they needed anything. She even provided a nespresso machine with a free box of capsules...what a treat!!! They said everything they needed was in the apartment. There were nice fluffy clean towels. The beds were of good quality and very nice to sleep in. I believe that HIP has a certain standard that they follow and that the home owners must follow as well. I, on the other hand, stayed in another apartment with my family (because HIP did not have a big enough apartment available for us for these dates that was close enough to Carnot) and it was the total opposite. It fell below expectations in terms of supplies and cleanliness. Size was the only thing going for it to fit all 8 of us. For my next visit to Paris, i will definitely rent from HIP for myself! I hope more people enroll their apartments in your company so that you can have more inventory!
We really enjoyed our stay. There was a total of 7 of us at the Carnot apartment but we never really felt cramped. In many ways, we loved the cozy feel of the apartment. Just a very comfortable apartment and felt like our home away from home very quickly. This was my first time ever staying at an apartment on any vacation and based on this experience, I may never opt for a hotel again for extended stays. Moreover, the staff made the whole reservation process seamless and our greeter Mika was great. Would highly recommend Havin in Paris to anybody as well as the Carnot property. The only real caveat I'd have to anyone regarding the Carnot apartment is that it's a bit away from the center of Paris, but that is very easily remedied as the Metro stop is literally right outside the door. And that convenience, together with the equally close location of the Air France bus to and from the airport, really is something you can't underestimate. And lastly, the view of the Arch and the Eiffel Tower in the evening capped the whole experience off. High marks on all accounts. Big thumbs up from each of us!
"We have adored staying in your beautiful french apartment and feel very sad to be leaving Paris. Thank you Mika for your help and advice during our stay. We think you are a wonderful 'property manager'. If Paris is the city of love, then this apartment is its heart.
We had a lovely stay with my parents and our children. The kids saw the Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Versailles, Notre Dame - wonderful! Had a lovely dinner at Le Hangar that Mika (our greeter) organized for us - a wonderful "French" Paris dinner. Mika was ever helpful! And the metro made everything so close - invest in Navigo cards, so you don't have to always buy tickets. All in all, a very memorable and wonderful week!
"We had a wonderful time in Paris - and we loved staying in the apartment. The location is perfect - right next to a metro station. And the view is fabulous - we loved being able to see the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel Tower out the window. Make sure you catch the light show on the Tower at 10pm, 11pm, and midnight. We also enjoyed both restaurants on either side of the front door. All is très bien!"
What a week! Everything worked out perfectly. Thank you very much! The apartment was clean and in perfect living condition; well equipped. Having had Mika there to greet us (and waive us goodbye) was a very personal touch and an effective way to communicate with someone in person about the apartment, questions in general and just having a local contact in need. We used Andy Waters for transport to and from Carnot which worked out very well too. All in all, we were extremely happy with our service, your focus on detail and making it an "easy" vacation for us. On top of this we had glorious weather, an abundance of sunshine every day and we enjoyed all the many things to see in Paris. We will certainly use your accommodation again in future and have already made a few recommendations for friends to consider it in future too. Thank you again and hope to see you soon!
Our stay at the Carnot apartment was truly memorable. The view was incredible! The Metro, RER, and Taxi were at our front door! Our greeter Mika was gracious and offered guidance to our inquiries. The kitchen and laundry rooms were nicely equipped which made travel so much easier. The computer and free phone calls topped things off for us as we were able to return at the end of the day and utilize both. Carnot was a well-suited apartment for a fabulous stay in Paris! We all had a wonderful stay. Merci!
We had a fabulous stay at Carnot. The apartment was just as we expected, lovely, and our greeter was wonderful; can't say enough about how helpful she was to us. Having the CDG Etoile line outside our door was so convenient for us, we could go anywhere in Paris in a matter of minutes, along with the RER stop as well. Our weather was good, a little rain now and then but never interfered with our running around. My nieces enjoyed themselves, and the size of the apartment was perfect for ALL of us (4). I would highly recommend the Segway Scooter Tour. I gave Evelyne all the info on it. It was the HIGHLIGHT of our trip! They also have evening tours as well. Our driver, David, was prompt to and from the airport, I would recommend him for sure. The AirFrance bus, however, is right at the apartment if anyone is interested in that transportation from the airport as well. You and your staff handled everything for us with grace and confidence. We do appreciate all your effort put forth to make our stay in Paris a worry-free experience. Haven in Paris comes highly recommended by me if you are considering rental in Paris. Upon my next holiday in Paris, you will be my first to call for a rental property. Thank you again for taking such good care of us and our needs.
Just wanted to let you know that the Carnot apartment was great. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and Mika our greeter, who was greeting for the first time, was lovely and very welcoming. The décor was great - tasteful but not precious - and it really felt as if we were at home. The fresh flowers in the living room were a treat. We had a fabulous time and really re-charged our batteries. Looking forward to our next Haven holiday!!
Carnot is a pleasant well located (subway is literally in front of the apartment) apartment. We ate in a number of evenings and were thrilled that the kitchen was well stocked with items necessary for cooking, including spices, some oils etc. It was no different than cooking in your home. This is a very comfortable apartment.When you rent an apartment, you are looking for a home and this certainly succeeded. The apartment comes with an Apple Lap top which is great, however I needed mine due to all the info in it. I was unable to connect through the wireless system in the apartment although did find I could do so by connecting to the router with a telephone cable that was already connected. It would have been nice to connect via wireless. We have rented apartments before in foreign cities and give this location 4 stars out of 4. Lastly the greeter made our transition into the apartment very pleasant. She is a wonderful person and offered to show us around more, however we were comfortable that we did not need it. *Note from Haven in Paris: We are looking into the wireless issue mentioned here and wifi will be available for all future clients!
Just wanted to let you know our recent stay in the Carnot apartment was wonderful. We went on from Paris to stay in an apartment in Amsterdam run by a different company, and while it was also nice, your apartment had the little special touches that made a difference, like the flowers, the computer, the paper towels, and the information book. Evelyne (our greeter) was wonderful and checked us in quite efficiently. She was very patient in waiting for us on checkout to bring back our rental car (and get lost on the way!). She was also a great source of information. Thank you for having coffee, Nespresso, salt, and oil available - it is a pain to shop for these things. The apartment was quite comfortable and in good order. We would highly recommend it to others. We look forward to perhaps trying out another of your properties next time we get to vacation in France.
Our stay in Paris was great and relaxing. One reason for that was the Carnot apartment, where we could stay and live the way we like and not be dependent on any hotel "rules". Jeanne who greeted us was really nice and polite, we could ask her everything. The roses and the red wine to welcome us were wonderful and we appreciated it the whole week. The apartment was quiet, had a nice balcony with great view on the Tour Eiffel and the Arc de Triomphe. The equipment (kitchen, washing machine etc) was working perfectly and the interior decor with all the pictures, the choice of the colors was really nice. I think for 4 persons it's a great alternative way to stay in Paris. We rented already other apartments, but this flat with your company has given us the best, uncomplicated service, specially because we did rent it on such short notice. Thank you very much for everything!!
On behalf of myself and the eight girlfriends who celebrated my 40th birthday with me at the Avenue Carnot Flat, I want to say how pleased I was with the apartment and with Evelyne's assistance and support and with Erica for her assistance during the booking process. I look forward to booking another Haven in Paris property in the near future and will encourage colleagues and friends to do the same. Very Best!
Lovely apartment,fantastic location all excellent. To sit on the balcony and look at Paris was extraordinary...
This apartment is in an excellent location with the best view in Paris. Our greeter was excellent and gave us some fantastic sights to see that are not the usual Paris sights. I would return to Carnot or any of the Haven apartments. Strongly recommend HIP to anyone.
Our overall experience was excellent. Evelyne was helpful, cooperative, and responsive whenever we contacted her. And whenever she visited the apartment, she brought croissants and other lovely and thoughtful "gifts". Having spent 4 weeks in various places in Italy after leaving Paris, we can say UNEQUIVOCALLY that the phone service and Internet accommodations are WONDERFUL, not to mention the inclusion of an Apple laptop as a resource! Also, our not quite three and a half year old granddaughter absolutely fell in love with the Eiffel Tower, and we could see the Eiffel Tower sparkling every evening from the apartment after dark, and this was especially thrilling for her. In addition to staying at Carnot, we also stayed at the Marriott Renaissance hotel for a few days. Speaking strictly personally, I preferred the location near the Tuileries. However, the location of the apartment, at the Place de L'Etoile, is superb. There is a Metro right there, and not much of interest (except perhaps Montmartre) is beyond easy walking distance. We did use the Metro, but we walked everywhere - Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Notre Dame, Latin Quarter, Sorbonne, Tuileries, etc. The Champs Elysees is literally across the street, and there are any number & variety of restaurants, supermarkets, and specialty stores virtually around the corner from the apartment without even going to the Champs Elysees.
The location of the apartment was excellent - literally steps away from a metro stop and several restuarants as well as the Arc de Triomphe. The apartment was very well appointed - with washer/dryer, dishwasher, espresso machine, wi/fi and laptop and air conditioning - which was a god send in the heat. We were there with my parents and our 14 year old daughter. We had a wonderful time and would stay there again.
My friends and I (4 women) spent a week in Paris at Avenue Carnot. The apartment was better than imagined; warm, comfortable, tastefully decorated with a spectacular view of the Eiffel Tower and The Arc de Triomphe. It was well situated and the Metro was right in front of our door. Our greeters were a tremendous help and made everything seems so effortless. We could not have done it without you. You have all been so helpful and gracious. We found the city as lovely as we imagined; the Metro simple to use and the French people we met... (and we met a lot as we were lost a lot!) charming, patient and most kind. My husband and I will be traveling to Italy in 2 years , hopefully, and will look for your help in finding a place to stay in the Tuscany area. A bientot. Pat, Patty, Monica and Linda PS We had no idea that you would provide coffee, tea, laundry soap, bath soap, hairdryers, etc. We all carried our own…luckily we did not shop for those items before we looked around. Your website does NOT tell you how well-equipped the apartment is....it was a wonderful surprise to be sure but it would have saved us from packing those items had we known....
We had a great stay. The apartment is in a great location. It's a three minute walk to the Arc de Triumphe and the famous Champs Elysees. The greeter was wonderful! She made sure everything was in good working order. This saved the day because we could not get the wifi to work. She called the French speaking technician who walked her through the trouble shooting process. Within 30 minutes all worked fine and we had no troubles there after. The toilet situation takes a little getting used to but is common for France. In addition, the tiny elevator was claustophobic for my taste but my husband was fine with it. (I walked and enjoyed the exercise)
We had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay at the Carnot apt. Evelyne (our greeter) was very friendly and helpful. The location of the apartment was excellent and that made the trip all the more convenient and fun. Thanks and hope to use your service again in the future.
The people at HAVEN IN PARIS were so great to work with. They were very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. We were a group of 6 ladies so you know we were very picky and all of us were pleased with the apartment. It was very well stocked with much more than any hotel room. The beds were all very comfortable,even the sofa bed. We loved having the laptop in the apartment as this allowed us to keep in touch with our families. The balcony was wonderful as well. The entryhall to the building is currently being remodeled and will be better when finished. We did very little in this area, but the metro (just outside the front door )allowed us easy access to all of Paris( it is on the Main # 1 line ). There were many good restaurants in the area, especially right across the street at Le Pre Carre. All in all, we loved the experience. We have never rented a vacation apartment before,and after this we realize that this is the only way to travel. We would definitely rent from HAVEN IN PARIS again and probably this same apartment.I will recommend to friends that are coming to Paris in the future.I wish I was still there.
The Carnot apartment can only be described with superlatives. After spending five years renting other properties in Paris, this apartment simply outshines every other alternative available. The apartment itself is finished impeccably, the location is unmatched, and the service from the staff at Haven In Paris is gracious and kind. In my opinion, there simply is NO OTHER apartment in Paris that I would choose to rent, as the Carnot apartment will forever be my ideal vision of "home" in Paris.
The location unbeatable. Located just outside the metro entrance, the view from the balcony was fantastic. The apartment was large enough for the 8 of us and within easy access to shops, restaurants and attractions. Would highly recommend for an outstanding stay in Paris.
This superbly located apartment has been renovated wth great style and consideration, contains fabulous furnishings and paintings, and a wealth of amenities. The view from the narrow balcony, particularly of the Eiffel Tower sparkling on the hour at night, is breathtaking. The metro station is outside the front door and from there you can go direct to Disneyland Paris in about 45 minutes. Access to the flat is awkward - not for the infirm or under 5s- there is a rather slippery and undulating wooden staircase and a teeny lift. There are plans to build a more adequate lift in the near future. (OWNER NOTE: NEW LIFT will be completed Dec 2007 Along with a rug in building staircase to prevent slipping) Note that the bathroom arrangement is: There is one bathroom with small tub with shower over and sink actually in the main bedroom. A shower room with sink. A loo with sink and an additional loo in the laundry room.
