The place is super cool! Literally a minute away from Dupleix metro station, which is absolutely optional since it is close enough to the important, first-timer places (Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, etc) to just walk. Plus, Raphael (the host) was super helpful and even gave us great recommendations on where to eat!
Our entire experience from our first communication with Raphael through the end of our stay at his apartment in Paris was more than my boyfriend and I could have hoped for! Raphael was very responsive and went out of his way to help and accommodate us when needed, such as by allowing us a very late check out and by offering to send help over immediately when we were briefly confused by the washing machine (which was actually quite easy to use). He also offered wonderful advice for things to do in Paris. The apartment itself was incredibly charming, and had everything we needed, from bedding and a very comfortable bed to a fully equipped kitchen. It was also very clean upon our arrival. The views from the windows were very charming and the location could not have been better, allowing us to enjoy a large and wonderful outdoor market, and providing an easy walk to the Eiffel Tower and River Seine. The metro was just a short walk from the apartment, allowing us quick access to everywhere else we wanted to go in Paris. Moreover, within 24hours of our departure, Raphael refunded the full deposit as promised. We could not have been happier with our stay and would not hesitate to stay there again the next time we are in Paris.
the appartement is truly charming, we really enjoyed our stay! everything was clean and prepared for our visit! the deposit was given back within 24hours! highly to recommend, very nice area and close to the eiffel tower!!!
next time it would be nice though to meet raphael in person :)))
Raphael's apartment was perfect, in a great location, and have us exactly what we needed. He was a thoughtful host, and there were practically no issues with our stay. (There was a minor mix up with the washer/dryer in the apartment, but he handled that for us.)
Great area with lots of cafes and boulangeries between you and the metro stop.
I have no hesitations in recommending this. Our experience was fantastic.
Stayed for the weekend in Raphael's apartment. It was perfect. It's in a great location a short walk from rue Cler, a traditional Parisian market street. Raphael made sure we arrived safely and was easily contactable for any questions we had during our stay. Highly recommend
Had a great stay here, Raphael made sure he kept in contact and given very clear instructions from the airport. Could not believe how easy it was to get too, arrived at night and got to see the Eiffel Tower in its glory! The Eiffel Tower is only a 5 minute walk and is the metro station. His place is a typical French apartment with everything you need!
We will book with Raphael again next year!

Thanks to Raphael I had a fabulous stay in Paris. His apartment was clean and neat and very close to metro, food shops, restaurants and good shopping and a 8-10 minute walk to the Eiffel Tower. 35 minute walk from the Louvre and centre of the Tourist (website hidden)8 market at the end of the street (50mtr) on Sun. And Wed. Raphael replied very promptly to my emails and was a gr8 help giving me directions to various tourist spots. All in all I had a wonderful week and I can't wait to come back to Paris and I will definitely book back with Raphael.
This apartment is wonderfully located for a stay in Paris. Close to a main rail station we had no problem getting to any point in Paris. Lots of shopping, cafes, and a few grocery stores all within a few blocks made it very easy to stock up and feel right at home. There was a great open air market on Sunday and again on Wednesday just a block away. The apartment itself was as pictured and represented - no surprises. Not luxurious but clean and sufficent in space. We had a few minor hickups, but everything was resolved very quickly by Raphael. Very happy we stayed here, it was a great week.
Raphael's apartment is in a very convenient location and ideal for tourists who want to go around Paris on foot and metro - the three metro stations within two minutes' walk provide access to different lines. The bakeries around the building provide excellent breakfast and the Sunday market down the street gave an opportunity to experience local Paris life.
The apartment itself was very clean and well equipped with all the basic necessities. The price is reasonable - much preferable to a hotel room's cost. One improvement that can help is if the apartment was labeled with its number or directions of getting to the building would include the instructions to which door in the building were provided.
Raphael himself was very helpful and responsive to questions. Very professional in the dealings and clear in communication. Plus the return of the deposit had no delays as others have also mentioned in the reviews.
I would not hesitate in seeking out the apartment in my next stay in Paris.
I am so glad to choose Raphael's apartment! I traveled alone to France and Italy. Safety and location were the most important thing I considered. It is just 10 minutes walk to Eiffel Tower from the appartment. The apartment is far more nice than the photos posted on the airbnb site. It is safe and quiet place! Raphael offered me a lot of help too! I had a very good time in Paris!
