Dealing with Cobblestay was easy. We were met at the front door by our greeter in Paris who was lovely and showed us through the apartment and explained how everything worked. She provided her cell number and e-mail in case we had any questions or issues. The apartment made a perfect home base in St Germain. There are tons of great cafes, restaurants and bakeries within a 5 minute walk. The Louvre, Notre Dame, RER and subway stations are all very close by.
We enjoyed having a kitchen which allowed us to make some meals at "home". The apartment is exactly as pictured. It's quite small but comfortable for two people. Our luggage fit under the bed which kept it out of the way. The street is quiet and the apartment is on the back of the building overlooking a courtyard which was ideal for me as I'm a very light sleeper. The apartment is on the 1st floor (american 2nd floor) and there is no elevator so you have to drag your suit case up a narrow circular staircase.

The property is very well decorated, great furniture, confortable bed, its clean and in a perfect location, in the best neighborhood in Paris! Not too big, but perfect for a couple. The only thing we didnt like is that the closets are very small, they didnt have enough space for our winter clothes. But the experience was great and we definetly want to come back!

Great location, comfortable bed, sofa bed was tolerable but not good. Only problem was with the stove top.

The apartment was lovely and the location great. The internet did not work and the caretaker, who was very nice, did not know how to fix it. We stayed there for 5 days without the internet which was frustrating and expensive (we ended up using the international<br/> roaming on our phone). Other than that, the apartment was great.
Thank you so much for your feedback. If any guests have trouble with the internet they can call the dedicated arrival manager to come address the issue. Often guests unplug one of the cords to the wi-fi box. See you in Paris soon.
