The apartment was cozy, clean and very central. Thank you!
We were 3 girls, living in Cyrils appartement for 4 days. It was a great trip and a really cosy flat It was just perfect for us :) We really felt like home. And its located in a really good place in Paris.. very close to everything and we felt safe the whole time.
Shena was very welcoming and the communication was easy too.
Thanks for the wonderful time in Paris :)
Our experience at this apartment was great. Cyril had his friend Sheena meet us at the apartment to let us in and even though our train made us over an hour late Sheena was really great to us and waited.
The apartment is exactly what is pictured ... It is small but it's what is to be expected in Paris. It is in an amazing neighborhood. There are tons of great restaurants and bars and it's close to the metro.
A perk of the apartment was that Sheena gave us free tickets to take a Seine boat ride! Thanks Sheena!
My sister and I stayed at Cyril’s apartment in October 2013 and enjoyed it. The apartment is in a really good location; a short walk from Republique & Temple Metro stations, some good bars in the street and a mini-markt across the road. Although Cyril knew our arrival day, I had forgotten to confirm our exact arrival time (which was in the afternoon), so it was a little bit chaotic on arrival.
The apartment is clean, tastefully decorated, but very small. The toilet is tiny. But if you have a good sense of humour and the right expectations this can be overcome. I slept on the sofa bed, which was comfortable & my sister slept in the main bed, but there is only a curtain separating the rooms. We did not realise that we needed to specify use of the sofa bed when we booked, so extra bed linen/duvet/pillows were not in the room. It was quite late in the evening when we realised this, so I had to make a call to Shena to drop off the bedding. Shena did this without fuss. Cyril was not responsive at all (not by SMS, phone or AirBNB messages), but Shena was responsive, so that was ok. We got everything we needed from her.
The stairs up to the apartment are not for the faint hearted. They are steep and many, especially with suitcases. Pack the earplugs for a guaranteed silent sleep, because the family in the next apartment are a bit noisy. I would recommend the apartment & I would stay there again with my partner (sans children). Think small space and you will be pleasantly rewarded.
The bad: The apartment is TINY, about the size of a walk in closet in the USA. One of the two burners on the stove does not work. The toilet is in a separate room from the shower and sink. The walls of the stairs are in desperate need of repair.
The good: Cyril and Shena are very responsive. The apt is in a very convenient location, the price is about the lowest I've seen in that location for a whole apt.
All in all, I'd shop around some more and keep this as a back up.
Me and my two friends stayed in the apartment for 5 nights.
Although the location was really great, and both Cyril (via mail) and Shena (in person) were very nice, we had some problems:
Our train to Paris ran late, we tried to call and text Shena but somehow (some sort of technical problems) she didn't get the massage. nevertheless, Shena got the apartment after we did and we had some very unpleasant minutes in the street (since it was late).
In the first two days we didn't have hot water and had some electricity problems, but after Shena fixed it worked OK.
Again, Shena was very nice and seemed to have the best intentions, she even bought us some groceries and cruise tickets.
It should be mentioned that you can sometimes hear the neighbors through the shared walls, especially in the morning, but I guess not everyone will be bothered as much.
After everything got fixed the apartment was nice, we probably would have enjoyed our stay very much if it wasn't for the mentioned problems.
Very cosy and comfortable place to stay,
Located in center of Paris and took less than 5 minutes to access the Metro station.
If I would havean another chance to visit Paris, I will try to stay Cyril's apartment again.
Все было очень четко организовано. Нас встретили, дали всю необходимую информацию. Квартира полностью укомплектована всем необходимым. Есть даже и зонты! Оптимальное размещение для туристов, которые хотят познакомиться с Парижем. Пешком легко дойти до основных достопримечательностей. Квартал тихий, никаких беспорядков не было. Соседи очень дружелюбные. Спасибо!
This is a great location if you want quick and easy access to the heart of Paris. It would be difficult to get better than this at the price. Bed(s) were good and bathroom adequate. Toilet very small. Great opportunities for eating out very close by.
There were three of us (two 65 year olds plus a thirty something). For the most part the stairs were not a problem but we had quite a bit of heavy luggage so that made things s bit difficult on the first day.
Shena. Was our contact person - we were running late and she was very patient.
A great location .. especially for youthful people.
Cyril's place was just great!! I stayed there for a week with two friends. The apartment was cosy and very well located, near metro stations and bicycle stations as well! We had the best time in Paris and having a place for our own made it even better!
Cyril was a great host!! (:
