About This Listing
Simple, cosy apartment in an amazing location near the Eiffel tower and museums, beside restaurants and shops.
Comfortable beds, bed linen and towels are provided, as well as wardrobe space.
The kitchen has a microwave, kettle, fridge, induction hob and oven, cutlery, dishes, glasses, etc. I don't prepare breakfast but please help yourself if I have cereals, milk, juice, tea, coffee, etc.
The bathroom has both shower and bath - the (small!) toilet is in a separate room for convenience.
Fast wifi, cable TV (French and international, English language news channels etc.), CD/DVD player, hairdryer, landline telephone.
I don't have a washing machine or dishwasher but there is a launderette and dry cleaners around the corner.
I rent one of the bedrooms (double bed or two single beds as you prefer) and sleep in the other. Living room, kitchen etc. are shared, you can make yourself at home.
Interaction with Guests
I tend to stay in my room if I'm there in the evening but I'm happy to answer any questions.
The apartment is a short walk to the Eiffel tower and Champ de Mars, rue Cler and Invalides. A slightly longer walk (still only 15-20 minutes!) to the Champs Elysees, Grand Palais and other sights.
There are great restaurants nearby (you can click on my Airbnb Guidebook for examples of these and other things to see), and all the other essentials - bakery at the end of the street (great for breakfast), supermarket, cafés, brasseries, cheese shop, butchers, fruit and veg...
The nearest stations are Ecole Militaire (metro line 8, handy for the airport bus to CDG) which is 5 minutes walk away and the RER C station Alma (which goes to Versailles for example). Paris also has bike and electric car rental schemes and city buses.
Other Things to Note
- The apartment is on the 2nd floor, with a small lift.
- The toilet is also small.
- No smoking or pets.
- Make yourself at home and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions - either in advance of or during your stay.
- I do all the cleaning and laundry afterwards, so you don't need to do anything.
Lorcan was very welcoming, he was there to greet us even at our late arrival. The place has an excellent location, 3 minutes away from the Eiffel tower and great restaurants. The apartment is very nice, clean and spacious. Lorcan was a kind host and we loved his place. Would definitely recomend!
The place is just as the photo you see on the net, it's very clean and spatious nice place, very comfortable. Moreover, the location is perfect because it's just 5min walk to École Militaire métro station (M8), and cab is also easily found, don't worry. Just 7 to 10 min walk to the Eiffel tower, and it's specially beautiful in the night, so you can take easy to enjoy the night view and go back home very nearly. Lorcan is sympathetic and nice host, he always responses the message within 10 min, don't worry anything you ask him and he will answer you immediately. I recommend you this nice place when visiting Paris.
My experience of staying at Lorcan's place was a A+++!
Lorcan was very nice and provided lots of helpful informations, including transportations, eating, sightseeing... I had the pleasure to meet with his parents shortly before they went to the airport, they were also very nice and elegant!
The location is super! Ten minutes walk to Eiffel Tower and five minute walk to Metro station and Velib bike station. There are lots of great restaurants near by (less than ten minutes walk) with reasonable prices, also supermarkets, pharmacies, coffee shops, shops for clothes, shoes.... Super convenient! I felt very safe there, actually I walked alone for over one hour every night after dinner. It was always past midnight! Btw, I'm a night person.
Room was nice and clean with a courtyard view and a big window it can be open for fresh air, living room and the kitchen are also clean and neat, the whole place is cozy like home!
Lorcan also offered cereals, milk, juice, coffee and fruits for breakfast, he even offered pasta.. One night after he knew I haven't ate dinner at late night and didn't know if restaurants still open, but I chose to go look for French restaurants and found a good one in less than three minutes walk! Which Lorcan recommended it too!
I can go on and on... But I definitely enjoyed staying at Lorcan's place very much! It made my first solo trip to Europe much easier and enjoyable!
Thank you so much for your hospitality! Lorcan, I'll definitely stay there again and again when I go to Paris in the future!
Lorcan's apartment was clean and very well located, a short 5 min walk to the eiffel tower, which was great for us since we went there at night to have some drinks. Also is very close to the metro stop and from there you can go everywhere.
Lorcan was very nice to us and even waited a little longer for our arrival.
Take a chance and stay at this place, you wont regret it.
Although Lorcan was unavailable to greet us he arranged a friend to do so. We were made to feel at home straight away. The apartment was well situated to the Eiffel tower, restaurants, supermarkets and was as Lorcan described. The bed was extremely comfortable and we enjoyed the bath after many full days walking. I would certainly recommend.
