The apartment was perfect. Location amazing. To me, le Marais is really the quintessential Paris, and Audrey's apartment is right in the middle, but on a quiet street. The apartment has everything and is the perfect size for one person. Audrey was very easy going and accessible. She responded to my request immediately and was accessible the entire trip. Highly recommended!
Audrey was a very nice host! She stayed in touch the whole time and was very professional with her recomendations and house settings.
J'ai été ravi de séjourner dans l'appartement d'Audrey qui est disponible et à l'écoute pour que votre séjour se passe dans d'excellentes conditions, tout est facile ! L'appartement est chaleureux et cosy situé dans l'hyper centre parisien, d'où il est facile d'accéder aux transports pour sillonner tous les arrondissements et curiosités parisiennes ! L'appartement est très propre et frais c'est un réel plaisir ! Je recommande ce lieu charmant !
Petit appartement très bien situé très pratique calme et serein
J'y retournerai souvent dés que je suis à Paris
On se sent bien un peu comme à la maison
Audrey est une hôte très agréable prévenante et organisée
A recommander vraiment
My stay at Audrey’s studio was perfect for my needs during my visit to Paris. Although I never met Audrey, she was always readily available and highly responsive to any and all questions. She even offered to ensure a cab was waiting for me when I checked out which was quite thoughtful. The studio itself is located within a 5-10 minute walking distance between the Hotel de Ville and Temple Metro Stations, and the 75 bus line runs right outside the front door. The studio is also located directly across from a Post Office which also has ATMs inside of it as well as all around it. There is also a small grocery store and a laundry located just around the corner from the studio which was wonderful. The neighborhood in which the studio is located has a very active nightlife, away from touristy Paris, which I also found wonderful. There are two full flights of narrow stairs to climb to get to the studio, but after the first couple of jaunts one gets use to it. While the studio itself does not smell of smoke there is a smoker in one of the nearby apartments where it permeates (although not strongly) only inside the bathroom at certain times of the day. I was never really bothered by it. The impact noise of people going up and down the stairs takes a couple of days to get use to, then one’s ear begins to ignore it. I read from the other reviews to bring a trash bag, and I did and that was perfect. I also brought an extra towel. Both the cable and wi-fi works. I never made any calls on the phone she provided so I cannot speak to that. Perfect stay for me. No issues at all with access, neighbors, or with the host. Everything went smoothly.
We loved staying at Audrey's apartment. We didn't actually meet Audrey but she was very lovely over email and quick to respond to any questions I had. The apartment is a small place but in a very good location. It is also clean, cosy and has pretty much everything you need for a short stay. I would recommend this place for a single person or couple who wants to stay in Paris for a week or so. There is a grocery store and laundromat within walking distance and plenty of lovely cafes around. If we are back in Paris, I'd book this place again for sure!
Thanks Audrey :-)
mignon petit studieux quartier calme et hôtesse (website hidden) cute...
My BF and I truly enjoyed staying here. It was super close to public transport, very central in an cute area of town. The room itself was cozy, clean and well appointed.
Audrey herself, even though we never met her, was attentive to our needs and quick to respond to any questions we had.
If you would like a nice, simple, small/cozy place to stay in Paris, then this is the place. :-)
I feel really conflicted about giving this public review. Audrey was great - although I did not meet her in person, she was very prompt in responding to my emails and available to take telephone calls, and organised everything perfectly. Also, the free phone calls to Australia were extremely handy. However, the real issue: bed bugs! I was fortunate to have never previously been exposed to bed bugs and did not realise what the issue was until I visited a pharmacy after leaving Paris. It certainly left a bitter taste in my mouth, especially given all the good reviews on airbnb. The other issues were relatively minor e.g. a hand held shower head which could not be fixed in place, a shower curtain made out of curtain material and of course the cigarette smoke (which Audrey and other airbnb reviews had warned about so that was not much of an issue). I think if the bed bugs are exterminated and maybe new carpet and rugs laid down, this place would be great. However, at the moment I'm licking my wounds (literally - the bites are nasty!).
Of course this is wrong ! What a shame, Archana, to write such things !
Of course THERE ARE NO bugs in my bed, there have never been and there will never be !!!
This is the studio where i sleep when i dont rent out, where more than 60 guests have slept these last 3 years, and where 8 persons have stayed after your departure
There were many things wrong with this apartment. The advertisement for this apartment is no smoking, however, because the other apartments obviously have smokers, the smoke actually comes right through the walls. The apartment reeks of cigarette smoke. The kitchen did not seem very clean. I had to find store bags that we thankfully could use for a garbage. There were actually dirty towels under the bed. Our eating area consisted of a stool and a wooden chair with a little round table where both side folded down. If you weren't careful, your glass would slide right off the table when you lifted these sides. There wasn't even a proper duvet or comforter on the bed and the pillows were so lumpy, we took the throw pillows and put them inside the pillowcases. The paint was pealing, the fan coming from the ceiling and around it was filthy. Worse of all was the plastic toilet seat in the bathroom, it was like a child's play toilet seat. There was a tile missing on the side of the bathtub. Not a little tile, but a large approximately, 8" x 8" tile. I could go on but I think I give the juste of how this apartment was. Again, I am being generous on giving this a one star.
