The apartment was clean and modern. Good location and Laurent was very responsive and helpful. He allowed us early check-in, which really helped. The a/c took a bit of figuring out but worked in the end. Laurent even offered to come check it out for us. His aunt checked us in and despite no English was able to get us settled in. Would come back!
Laurent's apartment was modern, chic and impeccably clean. We were greeted by his aunt, while not a word of English we managed to communicate really well, she was very welcoming. She conducted the most thorough run through of an apartment and its functionalities I have ever seen and finished with a traditional kiss for each cheek! I would highly recommend this apartment
We had an excellent stay at Laurent's place! His flat is in a great, safe location and is very close to Norte Dame. He was extremely prompt on communicating and making sure the entire checkin/ out process went smoothly. His aunt is very sweet and was the one to actually check us in, but she made sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend spending your time in Paris here!
This was our first time trying AirBNB and it was amazing! Everything was just as he said - his aunt gave us instructions and the key and Laurent left us some guides and recommended places to get food. The flat was immaculate - nice and clean and very modern. It was close to the Metro, with many restaurants and a supermarket nearby for quick food and drinks.
Laurent's apartment was simply perfect! The location was so close to everything to see and multiple metro stops.
The building's caretaker was always very helpful and his aunt was also even after a late night out after the moulin rouge!
We slept like queens in the comfiest bed and even we're delighted with all the amenities provided.
We even managed to bump into Jean Paul gaultier and a Victoria's Secret model in the very same street it is that amazing a location!!
Will definitely return when I travel to Paris again.
My husband and I really enjoyed this cozy apartment. It is very attractive and modern, just like the pictures. The bed was extremely comfortable. The building is extremely quiet and secure.
There are multiple metro stations in easy walking distance and Laurent’s recommendation to buy a 10 pack of tickets is worth following. It really simplifies the process.
Laurent’s aunt provided a very good overview of where everything is at and how to use things. She was wonderful! The grocery across the street has everything you might need and the grocer is very friendly. We unfortunately don’t speak any French, and he was happy to interact and joke with us in English.
If you enjoy a good walk, Notre Dame is a very reasonable distance. We hiked down the Boulevard de Sebastopol to the river and the bridges to Notre Dame and really enjoyed the shops and cafes along the way.
The WiFi in the apartment has a very good connection speed. We were ready for a quiet night in before making our trip home and loved that we could use the iPad Laurent provided along with the GoogleCast dongle he has to log into our Netflix account and watch a few shows before bed.
We were there for some relatively hot temperatures and the air conditioner worked very well and made the space extremely comfortable.
While you get to this apartment from the airports using the RER and metro, there are a lot of train changes to do so. I would personally recommend a taxi or Uber for getting to and from the airport if you have larger luggage. We used Uber to get to CDG at 07:00 and it cost 45 Euros.
The apartment was great and it is located close to the Strasbourg Saint Denis metro station. Laurent's aunt helped us with the check-in and she was just wonderful! Despite not being able to converse in English, she took the time to explain the items in the apartment and also show us the nearest supermarket and train station. The coffee machine and iPad was nice touch to the apartment. The surrounding neighbourhood was okay and we felt safe walking around. We would recommend this apartment for those who plans to visit Paris.

About the Host, Laurent
I am from Paris, born and raised. I love traveling and discovering new places and people. I have travelled to 42 countries around the world and I have been living both in the UK and in Australia.
My favorite area of Paris is where I live - which is central Paris (Le marais) where my apartment is and I believe that it is the best place to stay in Paris.
Most of the time, my aunt is taking care of the apartments. She is nice and please note that she is only french and italian speaking.
See you soon!
