We had a wonderful stay at Patrick's flat in Grands Boulevards! The apartment was clean and beautifully furnished: the bed was so comfortable and clean, the kitchenette was spacious and it was so useful to have cooking and especially tea-making facilities (essential for us British!), the shower/bathroom was clean and more than ideal for our needs. Also, I read a review before going which said that the apartment did not have a toilet which concerned me, however this is not at all the case, and there is indeed a toilet in the apartment, so pay no notice to that comment. The whole apartment was lovely and I can't emphasis enough how the location was so convenient. No more than 20 seconds away from the building to the right was a substantial supermarket and the building was 2 minutes away from a metro station, the main road and many bakeries, shops and bars. The access to the apartment was very easy (many thanks to Patrick's superb information with regard to arrival and departure and also his kind advice about getting from CDG airport to Opera and getting around Paris).
Patrick was a great host and was always so helpful! Despite our knowledge of French, he offered to explain everything in English.
We were staying in Paris for a few days to visit the cultural sights and to get a feel of the city so the apartment was perfect and was a great base for when we were tired after having explored Paris. We could relax there in chic, Parisian style.
I thoroughly recommend staying here :)
E' stato fantastico la nostra visita al appartamento di Patrick! Il appartamento era pulito e arredato molto bello: il letto era così confortabile e pulito, il cucinotto era spazioso e era molto utile avere le attrezzature cottura e di bollitore (essenziale per noi inglesi!), la doccia e bagno erano puliti e ideali per il nostro soggiorno. Non posso sottolineare abbastanza come la situazione era perfetto! Un passo a destra di un supermercato sostanziale e due minuti a piedi della stazione metro e i negozi e locali. Trovare e entrare il appartamento era facile, soprattutto grazie al aiuto gentile di Patrick in riferimento al nostro arrivo e partenza e con i consigli sui trasporti e sulla città Parigi.
Patrick era un ospite fantastico e molto gentile!
Il appartamento era perfetto per il nostro soggiorno culturale di 5 giorni e siamo restate in chic parisiano stile! Raccomando molto restare a casa Patrick. :)
Die Wohnung von Patrick war perfekt für uns! Sie war sauber und schön möbliert: das Bett war so bequem und sauber, die Kochnische war groß und es war sehr nützlich, Kochen- und besonders Tee-zeuge (nötig für uns englische!) zu haben, die Dusche/das Badezimmer waren sauber und ideal. Die Wohnung ist so günstig für alles! Ne Paar Sekunde rechts vom Supermarkt und ne Minute von der U-Bahn, Kneipe und Geschäfte.
Patrick war so nett und hilfsbereit!
Ich schlage vor, hier zu bleiben! :)
This is a great location for checking out all of the major sights and some of the off-the-beaten-track ones too. And it's very close to the train station. The check in was seamless!
The location of this apartment was ideal! It was lively and easy to get everywhere. Despite our 9:30pm arrival time, we were greeted by a friendly cleaning lady who had waited for us to hand over the keys. Patrick and Karine's communication was great leading up to, and during our stay. Washer/dryer was a godsend after a few weeks of travel! The apartment is a bit cramped, as might be expected in the middle of Paris, particularly for three people - it was difficult to lay out our luggage and still have walking room (Heads up: the bathroom and shower are tiny!). Everything was mostly functioning, and the apartment could have been a bit cleaner upon arrival (mostly the kitchen) but again, we were not spending too much time inside as we were excited to take in the sights and sounds of the city.
During the initial booking process for this apartment, Patrick was very responsive and accurately answered any questions immediately. This excellent communication was carried through with aplomb into the stay itself, where the only question I had (regarding internal door access) was answered via SMS within minutes.
The apartment itself is situated in a fantastic location, just four minutes' walk from Grand Boulevards Metro and one minute away from the mecca of all French supermarkets, Monoprix! The street itself is right where everything else is -- bars, restaurants, pharmacies, specialist shops, but just off on a safe side street so it remains quiet.
The main external door to the building is heavy and secure, with a pin-pad code, and there is then a hallway which has a second security door (entry via touch-less key fob) for added protection. Unfortunately, the lift only goes up to the first floor, and Patrick's apartment is in a separate part of the building which is only accessible by very narrow, sometimes-slippery, stairs. This can be an issue with heavy luggage, but the apartment makes up for the extra sweat!
Although Patrick forgot to mention that the landlord had builders in the courtyard making loud noise from 08:30-17:00 each weekday, I was delighted with the rest of the building. The apartment's front-door is (like the other doors!) very secure, and opens onto a comfortable hallway. The lounge/kitchen is very well-equipped with a nice Ikea sofa-bed, plenty of pots/pans/glasses etc., soap and cleaning products (if needed), ironing and drying boards, and a fridge/dishwasher/kettle/oven/microwave etc... A great place to cook if that's your intention!
I found the bedroom to be pretty large, with nice full-length Parisian windows and a comfy bed. The lighting was good (bar the energy-saving bulbs which are now mandatory in Europe!) with plenty of cupboard space. The duvet could do with being upgraded as it had signs of wear -- but spares were provided in case I wanted to change it.
The toilet (in its own separate room) was very small, but useable, and the shower/sink room was modern with a nice shower, glass sink and plenty of hanging space for clothes, towels etc. The washer/dryer was a great touch, but user instructions could be left in English in-addition to French, as these can be printed from the manufacturer's website and would help anyone (like me!) who knows French, but not the technical language specific to laundry appliances!
I really enjoyed staying in this apartment. It is pretty small, but pretty big for Paris, and is in a fantastic location. The access is a bit of a hassle (staircase etc.) and can be noisy with echoes from other residents' footsteps, but overall I loved the apartment (and Patrick's great service) and would be delighted to return in the future. Thanks to Patrick also for ensuring the apartment had all the consumables required (bin liners etc.) and my appreciation also for his excellent cleaning lady who waited for me and kept the space immaculately tidy!
Patrick is very nice and responsive person! His good advices helped us to reach the flat and to find out all required points in Paris. His small sweet and clean apartment is greatly located! We haven't seen Patrick but his cleaning lady kindly wait for our late arriving even when we stocked in traffic jam from our way to Paris. Thanks to her very much! The apartment is very close to famous restaurant and there are a lot of bars and places around. Thank you Patrick! Paris is great!
El alojamiento es tal y como aparecen en las foto. Bien equipado. Baño muy pequeño. El barrio es estupendo para moverse por parís. El problema es que durante toda la estancia, el patio comunitario ha estado en obras. Y los obreros han estado trabajando desde las 8,30 hasta las 17,00 todos los días. Incluido el sábado. En la misma ventana donde estamos durmiendo y comiendo. Eso ha supuesto muchísimo ruido durante toda la estancia por no hablar de la suciedad y el polvo que eso genera. Creo que en estas condiciones el apartamento no debería haberse alquilado, o por lo menos haber avisado de esta circunstancia y darnos por lo menos la oportunidad de elegir si queríamos pagar 643€ en esas condiciones por una semana. Por este motivo se nos ha hecho muy complicada la estancia en el apartamento.
The apartment is in a great location close to lots of bars, restaurants, supermarkets and the metro. It is well equipped and we loved having a useable kitchenette to cook in some nights. The apartment was very clean upon arrival. Although we never met Patrick in person, his communication before our arrival was excellent. Overall, we spent a fantastic few nights there and had an excellent and very enjoyable stay in Paris.
