The Space

Amazing 35m2 (376 sq ft.) apartment in the heart of Paris: Madeleine.
Fully renovated, with state-of-the art design and technology equipment.
Cosy, convenient, and ideally located: your dream place in Paris!
Minutes away from Champs-Élysées, Opéra Haussmann shopping district, Louvre, Rivoli Gardens, Seine, Concorde, cafés, restaurants, Paul Boulangerie, Théâtre, cinemas, etc... ;)

The apartment has a little garden, a spacious bedroom with a large Queen Size Bed, as well as a sofa that transforms into a real bed (very comfy) in the living-room suitable for 1 or 2 people.
The place fits 4 very comfortably!
It is fully furnished with all the modern equipment one may hope for, such as a 42" flat screen TV, dvd player, Wi-Fi, LAN Internet, etc...
The kitchen is brand new and equipped with washing machine, microwave, kettle, coffee maker, dishwasher, fridge, oven and vitro-ceramic stove.
All bed linen is provided as well as towels bath robes.
The neighbourhood is mostly residential, so it's safe and quiet with food shops, markets, delis just a few minutes away, and a lovely traditional Parisian Café/Brasserie just down the street: "Le Greffulhe".

The apartment is a 1 minutes walk to the metro Madeleine, Metro lines 12 & 14.
It also located 5 minutes away from Gare Saint-Lazare (train station), with Metro Lines 3, 12 & 14.
All lines are speedy and conveniently takes you straight to a lot of the main sites you’ll want easy access to.
When arriving from Paris CDG Airport, take the RoissyBus all the way to Opera: the flat is located less than 5 minutes away by foot.

The apartment is within walking distance of:
Madeleine : 2 Minutes
Concorde : 5 minutes
Champs-Elysées : 10 minutes
Le Louvre : 10 minutes
Tuileries Gardens : 10 minutes
3 Velib' stations on Place de la Madeleine to grab a free bike and start exploring Paris.

Check in and check out times can be flexible, unless there are guests arriving/departing the same day, in which case check in will be from 2pm, and check out will be at 11pm.
A bientôt!

Here is a F.A.Q About the apartment, hope it helps you have a better idea about your future experience with us ;)

1. What is the rental process?
Just select your dates, number of people, and go through with the booking,

2. What would the total be for renting your place between certain dates?
It depends on what you select when you go through the booking (the price should be indicated once you have selected dates and number of people etc on the booking page for the apartment). (cf. #1).

3. Would there be a deposit? If so how much would it be?
Yes there is. You pay it to AirBnB, and they give it back to you 2 days after you are out of the apartment if everything goes normally.
I have never had a problem before, and all of my guests have collected their deposit back.
The Deposit is 300€.

4. Would it accommodate two people?
Definitely. Two people would be most comfortable in the apartment :).
Four people can stay very comfortably in the apartment, as there is a real 160cm wide bed in the living room.

5. Do you have Internet access?
Yes. There is both LAN and WiFi Access. It is very fast.

6. Is this a secure building?
It is a very safe building.
First of all it is a very safe neighborhood.
The street door requires a code to get in. and the building door does too.
There is also a metallic curtain in front of the windows for extra safety if you feel like you need it ;).

7. What time do we have to check in and check out?
Whenever you want, I am very flexible and always looking to accomodate my guests to the best of my ability.
The only restriction to this, is if guests before/after you have arrive at the required hour... then you have to leave at "your" normal check-out hour so that the cleaning staff can do their job and make the place perfect again for the next guest.

8. Are you close to pubic transportation?
Very close!
You have a metro station less than 30 sec away walking.
Gare Saint-Lazare is very close (5 minutes walk).
And the BusStop from Roissy CDG is also 5 minutes away (rue Scribe).

9. Is there grocery shopping/ cafés near your place?
There is everything you can dream of nearby.
Departments Stors like Galeries Lafayette and Printemps (french equivalent of Bloomingdale's, Macy's or Harrod's), are just down the street (3 minutes walk).
There are heaps of Cafés and restaurants nearby, including my personal favorite for morning coffees and afternoon teas: "Le Greffulhe", just down the street from the apartment, they will change your fears of "bad french service".

10. Is parking available?
Yes. Lots of offices in the neighborhood , so lots of parking both in our street, as well as in the surrounding streets.

11. Do you have a washing machine?
Washing machine, dryer, as well as dishwasher and all amenities are provided with the apartment.

12. Is there anything we should know about your place?
It's very comfy, very well designed, equipped with state-of-the-art everything, as well as actual Art ;). In short, it is the perfect base-camp (email hidden) experience!

Looking forward to hearing from you soon ! Please feel free to ask me if you have any further questions...

  • Justin was very responsive with our calls and inquiries. He called us the day we were supposed to check in to make sure everything is ok.
    The flat was what we expected. Although it looks smaller compared to the pictures, everything else is accurate. The flat is perfect for a couple and is perfect for my family of 2 adults and one child. The location is fantastic! Metro, The Grand Magasins, L'Open tour bus, Auber RER is nearby ( 5 mins walk) , and there are a lot of restaurants. One gem of a restaurant is the Qian and Lin Japanese restaurant on the corner along rue de Mathurins. Overall, this little apartment made our stay in Paris very nice.

    Response from Justin:

    Thank you very much for your feedback Joenie! We look forward to welcoming you next time you're in town :). I will add you restaurant suggestion to the "Guide", so that other guests can benefit from your experience! Thanks again.

  • Location: Perfect location. Minutes from Printemp and La Fayette and i really mean it. Minutes or should i say seconds to most Cafes and asian food. A walk to Opera and 2 bus stops to Louvre. I have stayed at 3 locations and I must say Justin's location thus far is the best!

    Apartment: Very neat and cosy. Nicely and tastefully decorated. Amazingly it feels spacious and it really felt like a home. Most if not all items in the house are functioning well. Door has a little bit of problem of locking and unlocking but thats about all. Nice for honeymoon too I can imagine. Pretty romantic. Cleanliness has zero issues. It is also on the ground floor and when you look out you see the courtyard which gives it the extra space feel. And dont worry the courtyard is at the side so people wont be passing by and peeping into your (website hidden): Never met him but there is really no need to as his instructions are very clear and he somehow left the home to us (as mentioned in his description) which gives us the very homely feeling. I actually like the fact that we didnt meet. Sorry Justin, no hard feelings eh :)

    The unit is so good i will not have second thoughts about it should i be in paris again.

    Overall rating: 5 out of 5 stars!!!

  • Un premier essai pour moi pour AirBnB et dans un cadre strictement pro. Tout à fait satisfaite et prête à utiliser le service et surtout l'hospitalité des hôtes pour les voyages perso.
    Vraiment tout a été parfait du début à la fin malgré les grèves SNCF. L'arrivée dans l'appart a été d'autant plus agréable qu'il est extrêmement paisible.
    Merci Justin pour tout et pour cette hospitalité

    Response from Justin:

    Merci pour votre commentaire! A très bientôt je l'espère. :)

  • We had a great time in Paris. Justin's apartment was perfect for myself traveling with my niece and goddaughter. As a previous review mentioned, we could not open the front door, but used the patio entrance. Justin was very quick to answer the few questions we had. The apartment is just as portrayed in the pictures. It has a perfect location and just what we needed for a beautiful three nights in Paris. Many Thanks Justin.

    June 2014
    Response from Justin:

    Thanks for your review Donna! We did have a problem with the front door, which now has been entirely changed, as well as the lock! So it will be perfect for your next time in Paris! ;)

    June 2014
  • We didn't meet Justin, but the flat was great. He gave us good instructions on how to get in, and was quick to respond to texts. The location is excellent- pictures are accurate. I would happily stay there again.

  • The good and bad about the apartment. The good was that the apartment was located in a centrally convenient very quiet area with restaurants and markets very close by. The apartment was small, but every space was utilized very well. The bad was that the front door didn't unlock and was stuck so we had to use the garden door in the picture. The wood on this door was swollen and therefore, this door didn't lock. Luckily this was a safe area but still, it is very disconcerting to go out and not have your belongings protected since you couldn't lock the apartment from the outside. I contacted Justin who told me the locksmith would be coming in two days. He never showed up, nor did Justin ever respond to inquiry about when he would be coming. So, we stayed there for 4 nights and climbed through a garden window/door. The upstairs neighbor was very unhappy about that. The WIFI was also intermittent and non-existent the last day we were there making checking the airline schedule and updates impossible. I think it would be better if Justin paid more attention to these details and certainly got the locks fixed. As an aside, my error, I didn't read all the way down to the bottom of the confirmation. It's a must read because it gives you the entry codes to the building, the WiFi password and a few other items of importance. Still, Justin, fix the locks. We were lucky and no one entered or took our belonging, the next guests may not be so lucky.

    Response from Justin:

    Thank you Lorie for the kind words!
    The door in the garden locks perfectly well, as I explained it is an "european handle", which you need to pull upwards before you lock. I would not have left you in an apartment that does not lock.. as for the climbing, the apartment is located on the ground floor, so I don't understand how much "climbing" could be involved :).
    In over 3 years, I have never had any problem with the WiFi or electronics in the apartment, nor did you mention it to me or asked for help about this wifi issue.
    In any case, thanks for your comments, and hope to see you next time in Paris! :)
