About this listing
Cool and comfortable apartment south-exposed with a true Paris-life feeling! It comfortably fits 2-4 and is perfectly located on a quiet street, just few blocks from main touristic spots. Enjoy a fully furnished flat, easy access to all major subway lines!
Living room 2 (perfect place to enjoy a snack or just to have a break) / Séjour 2 (endroit idéal pour savourer une collation ou tout simplement faire une pause)
The apartment of 48 meters square, facing south, has recently been completely renovated, equipped with all amenities that travelers might expect.
You can feel like you are at home, with all the amenities and furniture you may need for your comfort during your stay.
Look at the attached map and photo gallery to make up your mind.
It is not allowed to smoke inside the premise.
There is a parking off-street available. It is 5min. by walk from the apartment. It includes a guard and CCTV system. Fare : 1 DAY/18EURO - 3DAYS/36 EURO. From the 4th DAY +10 EURO/DAY.
Pets are welcome but I would like to discuss about it before any booking as it might leads to some extra cleaning fees.
To all those who visit Paris for the first time. Compared to other major European capitals or U.S. and Asian cities, Paris has a human scale and reasonable distances. It is very easy to enjoy it on foot or by bike and quickly by public transportation.
Rent an apartment at a better price, a few metro stops away from the historic center, is not drawback at all. It is even recommended, if you want to share the daily life of Parisians and French people.
Interaction with Guests
Originally from Paris, fluent in English and German.
Architect and urban planner, it will be a great pleasure for me to give you as much as I can, travel information on where to go and how to get there, what to eat and drink... but also historical details and other interesting witticism.
As I am an heavy traveler myself, I could give you some good tips and tricks to make your stay in Paris the most memorable possible.
Anyway if needed, just ask. I will always be available to respond.
The apartment is located close to the river channel "Ourcq", city gardens and urban parks of "La Villette", "Les Buttes Chaumont", the Zenith of "La Villette" and soon the new Philharmonic of "Paris."
It is also close to night groceries, convenient stores, restaurants, covered markets or outdoor, indoor and outdoor cinemas, a swimming pool, an ice rink, sports and fitness clubs, a pier for cruises on the Canal Saint-Martin with "Canauxrama" etc.
The apartment is served by subway/metro 5 and 7, the T3 tram, day buses and night ones "Noctilien" for party goers (L40-L60 and N13-N41-N45-N140-N143).
It is located less than 100 meters from several bike rental stations "Vélib" and electric cars "Autolib" stations.
I do not have high expectations about house rules.
My main wish is just that you respect this place as if it were your own.
For the rest, nothing special, I'm pretty flexible if the requests are reasonable.
Living room 3 (enjoy a relaxing moment after an exhausting sightseeing day trip) / Séjour 3 (profiter d'un moment de détente après une journée épuisante de visites)
Le logement était parfait .. simple, fonctionnel, de très bon goût ! Le petit détail dans la chambre (carte du monde où l'on colle son numéro de passage selon sa région de provenance un vrai clin d'œil ) .. Très propre. Bien équipé même si nous ne sommes restées qu'une nuit ! rien à redire et à conseiller ! Merci
방 컨디션도 좋고 무엇보다 관리가 지속적으로 이루어지는 아파트여서 맘에 들었습니다. 호스트도 친절하구요. 감사합니다. 덕분에 파리에서 아주 편안하고 알찬 여행을 할 수 있었습니다. thank you cyril!!
Cyril ist sehr freundlich und sehr hilfsbereit. Er hat rasch auf Fragen geantwortet. Leider war er nicht vor Ort, wir wurden jedoch von einem BnB Sitter begrüßt. Dieser war sehr freundlich, er ist wohl kurzfristig für den eigentlich vorgesehen BnB Sitter eingesprungen der krank war. Die Wohnung liegt in einem ruhigen Viertel, kurze Wege zur Metro. Die Wohnung war sehr sauber, es gab nur zwei Probleme: im Wohn-Ess-Raum konnte der eine Rolladen gar nicht mehr und der andere nur mit extremem Krafteinsatz geöffnet werden. Cyril sagte jedoch, die Reparatur sei schon geplant. Das andere Problem, die Handtücher die für uns bereit lagen waren nicht gewaschen, zwei waren ganz neu, noch mit Etikett, die anderen beiden schon benutzt... Vermutlich lag es daran, dass der BnB Sitter nur eingesprungen war, also einfach eigene Handtücher mitbringen. Ansonsten war wirklich alles gut, sauber, nettes Flair und gute Lage.
The flat is on the ground floor of a relatively new apartment building in a quiet street opposite the La Vilette Parc. The apartment is well maintained and was very functional for us 2/3. The private accomodation gave us some advantages in how to plan our days in Paris. As we only stayed for a small breakfast we had everything we needed.
During our stay the apartment was serviced by a company with a professional approach whilst keeping a flexible and personal touch - I was positively surprised.
If you need a reasonably priced, comfortable, quiet apartment in Paris and do not require to go back to it during the day
this is a place to stay.
Cyril's place is very spacious and conveniently located near the metro. It also has a grocery store and bakery within five minutes walking distance. He gives very good explanation of everything you may need and everything is at your disposal. We quite liked this place and hope to return on our next visit to Paris. Thank you Cyril for your hospitality.
파리 집들은 아주 작을거라 생각했지만 어른 4명 아이 1명이 머물기에 충분히 넓었구요~세탁기 티비 전기렌지 등 가전제품도 작동 잘되었고 샤워시설도 좋았습니다^^ 아이 데리고 집 찾기 힘들까봐 Gare de Nord 역에서 택시 탔고요 20유로 내였습니다~ 나중에보니 역에서 집까지도 가까운거리였습니다~ 위치가 시내에서 조금 떨어진 단점이있지만 조용하고 편안한 곳을 찾으신다면 강추입니다^.^
Cyril is an accommodating host. He will give you clear and concise directions for staying in the apartment. There is no air-conditioning in the apartment, which is typical for Paris. A fan took care of that problem. Be aware that the apartment is on the first floor, so you can't really open the windows all that much, unless you want people looking in as you walk by. The apartment is perfect for the younger generation. If you are older, like we are, the beds are low, so I had a hard time getting in and out of them with my arthritis. That however, is my problem, not the host's or the apartment's. I just wanted to make sure people were aware that have issues like mine. The apartment is close to the Metro line and Paris has one of the best Metro systems in the world.
Thanks for your comment. I do agree people who are gaining experience got also higher expectations more than young travelers. That is why I totally understand your point of view ;). I still think the offer is a really good deal for an accommodation in Paris, especially for 4 people. It makes the night price/person about 25Euros.
About opening windows, there is an intimacy film inside and actually you might don't know it but there is a reflective treatment on the outside that prevent from indiscreet people but I do agree as you experienced exceptional heatwave (hottest since 1950...), you had to wider open windows. It was really EXCEPTIONAL heat weather conditions. Wish all the best.
