Bridgestreet Champs Elysees
- What's Included
My partner and I enjoyed our weekend stay. The location couldn't be more perfect on the Champ Elysees. On arrival we collected our keys from the Bridgestreet office on the next street and was given clear directions to the apartment, which we had no trouble accessing. It was a lovely and clean studio apartment on the top floor. We had a view of the Eiffel Tower which was a bonus. The neighbourhood is expensive. If you are looking for a supermarket while you are there we shopped at Monoprix across the street, where the prices are reasonable and purchased snacks during the day from PAUL restaurants.
I booked an apartment at 10 AVE FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, and as soon as I arrived I realized my check-in would be 5 hours later, and I was sent to a different address: 42 RUE LABORDE, which was the back of an old building: no view of the street, nothing but the chimneys of the other buildings. Was it that I paid for? I hated it! You pay for a place close to Champs Elysee, and you get a place that almost cannot be found in the map.
We got a transfer from the airport to what we thought was our hotel but turned out it wasn't even a hotel but the BridgeStreet office. We took our bags up to the office for the lady who barely spoke English to give us an information pack with directions to take the Metro to 7 rue Saint Lazare with 2 large suitcases, a carry on suitcase and 2 medium back packs!! We got a cab to the location which turned out to be an apartment building so we entered 2 doors with coded entry and a dodgy lift to the 6th and top floor. Expecting anything, we went in to find the room smelt like dirty laundry, room not cleaned at all, toilet stained, bedsheets everywhere and rubbish still on the benches. We tried to phone the office but the cordless phone was flat and once charged wouldn't connect although trying many times to unplug/replug. The cleaner came and didn't speak English but asked us to leave for a few hours so she could clean. The washing machine was stuck shut and still had someone's clothes stuck in it, my partner (admittedly a handyman and fixer upper) managed to get it apart to fix it and get rid of the clothes and run an empty load through. We even had a fold out couch for a 5 night stay, incredibly uncomfortable! The only good things about this place was that there were several take away places on the same street with different cuisines, it had separate toilet and shower, cooking facilities, dishwasher, washing machine and a tiny balcony.We would go back to that area but will avoid BridgeStreet from now on! Terrible experience with this company, not enough information was provided when we originally booked and got confirmation. Very disappointed.
I opted for Bridge Street as part of a package from Qatar Airways holidays. Only later I came across the 'terrible ' reviews. We knew that there would be last minute changes in the apartment/ locality allotted to us, so no use taking those reviews at face value. As I was travelling with my family, there were indeed reasons to become apprehensive, but we decided to give it a shot. The fact that we would be reaching during office hours boosted our confidence. Three days prior to our departure [as expected] we got the information about the 'slight' change in our original booking. In fact our accommodation was moved from Montparnasse to Champs Elysees. Since the reviews we came across on both these apartments were equally bad, we didn't have to think too much to agree on the proposal. We made it a point to follow their advice and things turned out to be as smooth as one could hope for. We reported to their office at 10 Avenue FDR, and it took less than 10 minutes to complete the formalities and collection of Keys. The office was easy to locate. [We already had sketched the locality using street level google maps].It is hardly 100 meters form Roosevelt Metro towards Rue Pontheu. The office people were quite considerate and took time to explain how to locate the apartment allotted to us and the procedures to be followed.Luckily our apartment was nearby and in no time we assumed charge of it. The rooms were smaller than what one would expect in an apartment, but were decently furnished with amble storage space. The kitchen was spacious with all amenities, and we put good use of it. That saved us a great deal of time and money, as the restaurants in Champs Elysees are understandably busy and [?un]reasonably expensive. So if the plan is to spend more than a few days in Paris, Bridgestreet apartments is a great option.
We were scared when we read the online reviews but this was an amazing apartment. It is in the heart of the champs elysees. Close to the arch de triomphe. Could not be better. Could have ate at home but chose to eat out each night.
