This week our apartments were blissed. They have been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by TripAdvisor.
We have been working very hard during years to ensure that we deliver consistent high levels of great service to our guests, and today we are glad to have received an award of recognition by TripAdvisor. Our actual certificate is on its way, but TripAdvisor are already showing it on our two apartment profiles on both our Des Plantes and Montparnasse apartments, but also on our Holidaylettings profiles here and here, which is Tripadvisor’s partner company.
We thought it’d be good to share it with everyone as we are proud to have received it. Have you ever stayed with us? perhaps you would like to try us for your next Paris holiday break in Paris?
We have proud to announce that the visual identity for our humble apartment business gets a facelift. We have been promoting the apartment business for about 7 years with a logo that David built on Photoshop in a rush, and we’ve always thought it could get better. So we decided to take our little project onto Design Crowd and see what we could get out of it. The result has been an impressive amount of design proposals for design artists.
DesignCrowd is as the name suggests a crowdsourcing platform for designers and publishers to work on projects. As a client you can put up your project on their site, specify how much you want to pay and quickly get a bunch of designers bidding for your project. The next step is to choose the best design. You only pay for the winning design.
We feel the new logo reflects more appropriately the location for the apartments, the modern aspects of the properties ( on the words ‘My Paris’) but also the classic and stylish touch of the decoration inside the properties (in the word ‘Apartments’). We also kind of loved the artistic look of the Eiffel Tower.
This new business logo takes us into a new era with our humble rental business as we have started the month of September which an incredible array of bookings on both apartments. Our studio apartment has been overwhelmed with booking requests and reservations for nearly the whole of December and large amounts of bookings already for 2014 all the way to July next year. And the second apartment, our family apartment, is also doing extremely well with only a few gaps left to book in the run up to January. Despite the increased competition in the holiday rental market in Paris, we are pleased to see our own share doing very well.
Feel free to let us know what you think of our visual identity.
In the middle of this festive season and as 2013 comes to a close, we would like to take a moment to wish everyone a prosperous New Year packed with travelling opportunities, weekend escapades and great leisure moments.
Over the past year, My Paris Apartments has achieved many significant milestones in welcoming new guests to our two family-owned apartments in Paris. We have welcomed in guests from about 25 countries across the globe so far. We have been listening to feedback from all guests, and acted upon the feedback and made enhancements to our apartments.
We have upgraded and we will keep upgrading our apartments to make them increasingly welcoming and comfortable. We are pleased to have received significant recognition by new and returning guests via Satisfaction & Reviews platforms on industry-known portals like TripAdvisor and HomeAway. Comments from our guests speak for themselves and we are proud to commence the year with great occupancy levels reaching all the way to October 2014.
A very significant milestone for our little business has been the facelift of our personal website which is now all together more user friendly, more presentable, clearer and offers what most guests has been asking for: reservations and payments online. This has made us aware of how better serve and support our customers.
We would like to start the January Sales season early. If you book into any of the available slots free in the month of January through our website before 10 january, you get a 10% discount applied directly online on our website. There are only a few slots free!
We wish you and your loved ones a happy and healthy holiday season and best wishes for a prosperous 2014!
