Shena was very quick to respond to my booking request, and she went out of her way to accommodate an early arrival, which was very much appreciated. The apartment was exactly as described -- a very cozy little nook, but perfect for a traveling couple. It was near several metros, and we only needed one station to get around to all of the tourist sites we wanted to see. It was also a walkable distance from a night bus terminal, which was valuable to us because the metro was closed at the time we needed to make it to the airport (very early in the morning). Downstairs from the apartment we had a grocery/pharmacy, a few restaurants, a few bars, and one or two art galleries/studios/stores -- a nice selection that wasn't too busy. The apartment was secure, behind two locked gates, and the neighborhood seemed to be very safe and quiet enough as well. I would stay here again on my next trip to Paris.
We had some small communication issues, which I believe were due to French-English translation issues (Shena did indeed speak to me in English), but these did not sour my experience.
Cyril's place is exactly as described. The house is just minutes away from the metro station ( and bus stop) and on a walking distance from a few major attractions. This area offers lots of nice places to eat or just to have a coffee. The place is clean and has old-fashioned charm. Our plane was postponed and we arrived very late in the evening where Cyril's aunt Shena was waiting for us patiently. She was answering always on time since I booked it. We had a few great days in Paris and I would definitely recommend this studio. Hope to have the chance to visit it again :)
Wir haben vier sehr schöne Tage verbracht in dieser Wohnung, sie ist super gelegen und heimelig, die Metrostation ganz in der Nähe. Aber es ist auch schön, zu Fuss in die Innenstadt zu spazieren von der Wohnung aus.
Am Anfang hat das Internet nicht funktioniert, aber Sheena hat sich sehr bemüht, das Problem schnell zu lösen. Sie ist sehr liebenswürdig und hat uns auch Tipps gegeben, wo wir mit unserem zwölfjährigen Sohn hingehen könnten. Merci pour tout!
The apartment which was on the fourth floor without a lift was about 5 mins to the metro station. It was clean and suitable for small family. Shena was very friendly, kind, and willing to answer our questions. Although we had a problem with hot water, Shena came to fix it quickly. It was a good experience to live there. Thanks.
The apartment is pretty noisy due to the thin walls and several neighbours. I recommend earplugs.
On the last evening of our stay the hot water supply broke down, so we didn't have hot water on the last evening and the morning of our departure. Unfortunately the communication via Airbnb did not work properly, so that Shena did not receive my smss and had no oportunity to solve the problem.
The apartment as a whole is as described, and the area where it is located is very nice and offers all from grocery to bars.
Die Wohnung war sauber und liebevoll vorbereitet . Im Kühlschrank stand schon eine kleine Milch und Butter, kleinen Marmeladengläsern, ein Korb mit Süßigkeiten. Zahlreiche Fremdenführer über Paris und diverse Zeitschriften lagen bereit. Am Bett lagen sogar Ohropax bereit, da die Wände nun mal doch dünner sind als bei uns... (war aber kein Lärm)
Apartment is perfect for a break in Paris. In a quiet block but very central and easy to get anywhere by metro as there are so many stops nearby.
Shena was very responsive and easy to deal with - she provided a thorough introduction to the apartment and was very flexible about departure time which made our stay even more enjoyable.
Would definitely recommend this apartment and would look to stay here again when I return to Paris.
Like a couple of the other reviews said - you can hear a bit of noise from the neighbours, but nothing intrusive and noise doesn't go on late, and the toilet room is quite small - but perfectly adequate!
Great apartment and very well located for truly enjoying Paris!
