Lovely apartment in a great location - one block from Georges Pompidou and surrounded by nice cafes and restaurants. Very close to metro, supermarket and about 10 mins walk to the Seine. Bed really comfortable and the apartment was very clean with everything working - wifi was great and very useful. A couple of niggles which were outside Michel's control were workmen drilling at 8.30 in the morning (inside the apartment building) and the lift being out of order for repairs meaning lugging suitcases down 2 floors. However, these were temporary problems and nothing to do with Michel. We were met at the door and got good directions from Gare du Nord and back to CDG by taxi. All in all, a great place to stay if you want to stay in a good location - well worth the money. p.s. my husband objected to the tv being in the bedroom and not the sitting room but that didn't bother me.
The two of us stayed at Michel's apartment for a long weekend in mid-January 2014. Michel was responsive to my questions prior to arrival and offered to meet us at the flat upon arrival even though it was late at night. The flat is self- sufficient and we found it very nice having the option to relax and cook during our trip. The best thing about the flat is it's location. The area is nice to wander around with very easy access to supermarkets, food shops and centre pompidou. Hotel de Ville, The Seine, Notre Dame are only 20 minutes walking distance away. The apartment is right next to Rambuteau metro station. All in all a very enjoyable stay.
Michel's apartment is in a great location- Le Marais. Bakeries and brasseries abound and the metro steps away right outside his door. Very convenient, as you can be whisked anywhere in Paris in minutes.
We found walking in Paris was the best way to really experience the city during our short 4 days there. We preferred the smaller more intimate streets to the big noisy ones. In fact, Rue du Grenier St. Lazare on which Michel's apartment building fronts is more like 8th Avenue in NYC. The apartment itself is clean, well kept, and comfortable, and our host very, very responsive, always ready to help out with a restaurant recommendation or cab solution. I was a little disappointed that we never met Michel, as he was out of town, but his friend was there to welcome us. One thing you should know about communicating in Europe using a wi-fi only device- it's not easy to find a public signal when you need it. Martin's apartment has good wi-fi and we needed it and depended on it.
If I had one criticism about the apartment it would be the hallway as you get off the lift. It's not very nice and poorly lit. Also no place to put clothes in the bedroom, but there is a wardrobe in the foyer. The bed is comfortable and the apartment quiet, but not much of a view. Shower was nice and hot. Overall, we recommend this.

Our stay at Michels apartment was seamless and a pleasant experience.. A well kept place in a great location! We would his place to friends and family..
Our stay in Michel's apartment was top notch. It is centrally located- Marais top spots, Notre Dame, the Louvre all in easy walking distance. The apartment was very clean, quiet, spacious, and well equipped. A supermarket is downstairs and the metro 1/2 a block way. Michel was a perfect host. He provided amazing restaurant suggestions and neighborhood highlights. I highly recommend Michel's apartment.
Michel's apartment is perfectly located, immaculate, well equipped, and tastefully decorated. It is also quiet, which is very important, as it looks over a pedestrian courtyard. Very secure also. Michel is accessible by phone for anything as well, very accommodating! I would stay here again.
I think this apartment has everything you need, except for washing machines, but it does not matter. the apt is located near the the Pompidou Centre, and there are 11th metro station and the 29th bus station . This area is very quiet, and I feel safe. There are two supermarkets, three Chinese Restaurants, a Indian Restaurant opening all night. The rooms are spacious and clean， the pillows are very comfortable，and there are many maps and travel books on the coffee table which are useful for travelers, and so on, all of the things are quite wonderful. The most important thing，Michel is a quuite friendly host, he made us feeling very comfortable and very happy. I hope the next time I come to Paris could stay here again.
My husband and I stayed at Michel's lovely apartment for about a week, and I would highly recommend it. Michel met us right on time in front of the apartment, and gave us a quick tour around the place, plus useful sightseeing tips. The apartment itself has a lot of personality, and is spacious, comfortable and clean. The location is hard to beat- it's walking distance from great shopping and restaurants. And as advertised, it was surprisingly quiet for being in such a central area. Another plus is the elevator in the building- no need to lug heavy luggage up and down flights of stairs. There were only two aspects that weren't ideal: no dining table (there is a counter in the kitchen), and the toilet room is somewhat inconveniently located on the other side of the apartment from where the bathroom is. However these are small things in an otherwise great apartment. Thanks Michel for sharing your beautiful flat!
We stayed in Michel's apartment from Sept 13 - 17 and really enjoyed our time there. It was my first experience using Air bnb and going to Paris and I could not have asked for a friendlier host. The apartment was very spacious and centrally located. There is a metro stop right outside the apartment, but we rarely had to use it, as everything was within walking distance. I highly recomment Michel and his apartment!
Michel is a wonderful host. He was so helpful in telling us how to navigate around town and suggesting restaurants. He is great at responding to questions via his phone. It was so nice to have the grocery store next door. The apartment is well stocked and comfortable.
