The place is rented with clean and fresh towels and linen.
AREA : "Arts et metiers" metro station is in front of the building (line 3 and 11) and others stations few meters from the building (Reaumur Sebastopol/ Chatelet les halles)...access to all Paris!
Also many bus lines if you prefer or Velib station (bike rental) right next to the building.
The Louvre, la Seine, Hotel de ville, Notre Dame de Paris, Pompidou, Modern Art Museum are all within easy walking distance of the apart.
Chatelet-Les Halles is very close to the apart (5 min walk), it's the biggest hub for subway/RER (express subway) lines in Paris so the apart is VERY accessible and convenient (you can go directly from there to Disney Land Paris or Versailles castle for example)
The area is one of the best of Paris... and authentic!!! coffees and restaurants next to the building (also groceries, drugstore, bakery/very good boulangeries..) Beautiful and quiet area.
Respect the apart and be quite clean (everything is quite new inside and full equipped).
The check in is not before 15h (3pm) and check out not after 11h (11am). Ask me for exception and i will tell you if its possible to accommodate it with your arrival and departure (i usually do it when i can ;))
Enjoy your stay and do not hesitate to ask me if you need something (even about the area, visits, museum, shopping, gym, swimming pool.. all that you need)
We stayed here during our visit to Paris, David's instructions on how to find the apartment including directions from airport and which train to take where very clear and the price reasonable. The apartment is very small and the bathroom tiny (my partner is over six foot and struggled to close the door to the bathroom while using the toilet) also the shower head needs to be replaced as it is corroded and barely any water comes out and is at a very low pressure. The couch as in one of the other reviews needs to be replaced as all the vinyl/plastic leather comes off and sticks to you when sitting on the couch. There is no air conditioning in the apartment and at the height of summer it was unbearably hot. There are five flights of narrow stairs to the apartment and no lift. We had large suit cases and struggled to get them up and down the stairs. Although washing machine is advertised it was broken so we were unable to wash our clothes. We wouldn't stay here again.
We spent 9 fantastic days in Paris. The communication with David was very good - he answered our questions prompt, he gave every neccessary information before our arrive. The location of the apparment is super - easy to approach, metro and velib station is next to the house, only 5 minutes walk from Pompidou. The appartment is on the 4th level, we found the narrow staircase funny for the first time, but we accustomed. The appartment is just like in the photo, comfortable for 2 person. The bath is little, but enough for normal built adult. The equipment is slightly used. In total we found it very good, if we have opportunity (hope soon) we would like to return.
We had a great stay in Paris. Fantastic location! Our host David was easy to communicate with and very helpful.
Das Appartement liegt sehr zentral und ist mit öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln gut erreichbar. Eine Metro-Station befindet sich direkt gegenüber der Straße. Dadurch eignet es sich perfekt um viel in Paris zu unternehmen.
Das Gebäude in der die Wohnung liegt ist schon etwas älter, aber die Wohnung selbst ist sehr modern eingerichtet und entspricht nicht dem ersten äußeren Eindruck.
Von der Größe her ist das Appartement für 2 Personen sicher sehr angenehm, zu dritt sind die Schlafmöglichkeiten (1 Doppelbett und 1 Couch) doch etwas eng. Für ein paar Tage war das aber auch okay.
Ansonsten befindet sich in der Wohnung eigentlich alles was man benötigt, das Bad ist allerdings wirklich klein. Die Küchenzeile ist sehr praktisch und hat uns zum Kochen gereicht. Leider hatten wir bei unserem Aufenthalt ein Problem mit dem Spülbecken, worauf David aber sofort reagiert hat.
Auch wenn es kleine Mängel (ein Fenster lässt sich nicht schließen, Sauberkeit) gab, haben wir unseren Aufenthalt in Paris insgesamt sehr genossen.
Although we didn't get to meet David in person, he was very responsive and helpful when there were issues with the cable television and wifi.
- Great location. The metro station is literally across the street from the apartment. The neighborhood is very nice and seems to be safe.
- Good size. With the tall ceilings, the apartment doesn't feel cramped at all. A great fit for couples.
- Nice decor / style.
- Great TV. We brought an Amazon Fire stick and watched Netflix at night, as we don't speak French.
- Fast wifi.
- Cleanliness. There was quite a bit of dirt on the floors and black mold in the shower. The sofa also gives off black flecks that stick to you and your things.
- Cooling. We stayed in early July, when Paris was experiencing 100F weather. We kept the windows open every night, but with no fans provided, it was hard to cool the place down.
- Washing machine was broken. Part of our deciding factor for picking this place was the fact that it had a washing machine.
Overall, we had a great time in Paris while staying at David's apartment. When we return to Paris, we would consider staying at David's place again, if the above cons were addressed.
While this apartment is in a central location with shopping, restaurants, supermarket and metro close by there were issues with basic amenities. Several if the power points did not work. The washing machine was broken and the toilet broken in the middle of the night! There were not enough towels for the number of guests staying. This apartment is suitable for two people.I
