Apartment was perfect for our stay of 2 people. Very modern and well equipped with Netflix and coffee machine. The location was so close to the metro station which made it very convenient getting around. Laurent was really good to communicate with and his Aunty did a great job greeting us and showing us around the apartment. Highly recommend this apartment for a visit in Paris!!
The apartment was excellent for what we were looking for. Laurent's Aunty is adorable and we managed to understand most of what she was telling us with our limited knowledge of French. Laurent was very responsive to queries and a very good and reliable host. We would recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Paris.
One of the best airbnb experiences- seamless check-in w his sweet non-English speaking aunt, Anna. just enough space for two, exactly as pictured and so comfortable. wifi, ac, blackout curtains all great. best part of the place was location- we could walk to so many incredible places or take the metro which was super convenient. Made our Paris trip even more perfect, highly recommend this place.
This apartment is exactly as the pictures. Laurent's aunt was extremely sweet and helpful. Although she didn't speak ANY English we were able to communicate just fine. The apartment is very modern and it was enough space for my daughter and I. The neighborhood was very safe and the metro is literally just 2 small blocks away. We decided to take the metro upon arrival to the apartment. The commute was pretty simple but after the long flight I probably should have taken a cab. We did take a cab going back to the airport. I just didn't feel like having to deal with our heavy suitcases and all the stairs. As mentioned in the description, the apartment is on the 3rd floor so do keep this in mind when packing. We certainly overpacked which made going up and down the stairs with our suitcases a pain.
We didn't have any issues other than a quick power outage but Laurent responded immediately to my email. This I'm sure was our fault but again he responded immediately. I was concerned it would be hours before I would get a response, it literally was minutes.
Traveling the metro was SUPER easy. We arrived early and took Laurent's suggestion to sit at the cafe across the street. They were so accommodating and allowed us to sit there for over an hour.
I would certainly recommend this apartment. It was all we needed for our stay in Paris. I will definitely stay here again. Already planning my next trip.
The apartment was clean and lovely, it had everything we needed. The coffee machine was a bonus :)
We enjoyed our stay at Laurent's place. We were welcomed by his aunt who had cleaned and organized the place and we found it in excellent condition.
Wifi was a little iffy, and some electrical outputs were hit and miss but otherwise it was great.
Laurent was very kind to let us leave our bags there late into the day we checked out, which essentially gave us an entire extra day to enjoy Paris.
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!

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!
