Large quiet studio apartment in the very heart of Paris (5 min from Chatelet Les Halles, two blocks from the trendy rue Montorgueil). Literally hundreds of places around to have a drink and eat, truly the best neighborhood for all your shopping needs!
The studio apartment consists of a large living room with a full size TEMPUR bed (140x190cm, accommodates two) and a large comfy couch, bathroom with bathtub / hair drier and a small kitchen so you can cook at home if you want (utensils available, fridge, microwave - there is a large grocery store on the same block). Washing machine available.
500 Mbps (Fiber optic) Internet / Wi-Fi / cable / PC available for use / TV with instructions and tons of HD movies in English :) Cordless phone with free and unlimited calls to many destinations on landline numbers (France, all Europe, USA, Canada, China, Japan…). Free calls to US and Canadian mobile phones...
NEW: 3G / Wifi Dongle provided
With the 3G / Wifi dongle, you can use your smartphone or laptop anywhere in the streets at no cost instead of using the expensive data roaming of your cellphone provider.
The dongle acts as a portable modem that uses the 3G network and gives you full access to it via wifi (email, internet...).
It is 100% free of charge for you.
The building has a closed courtyard where you can secure your bike if needed, and if you don't have a bike, Velib' stations (bike rental) are a mere 100 yards away.
Closest subway stations are Etienne Marcel (line 4) and Reaumur Sebastopol (lines 4,3) both are within 2 minutes walking distance. Also many bus lines if you don’t fancy subways.
Chatelet-Les Halles is very close to the studio (5 min by foot), it's the biggest hub for subway/RER (express subway) lines in Paris, so it's VERY accessible and convenient. It can't take you more than 30 min to go anywhere in Paris from the studio (unless there is a strike, eh! This is France after all…). The Louvre, Notre Dame de Paris, Pompidou Modern Art Museum are all within easy walking distance.
From Chatelet-Les Halles, direct express line to Roissy-Charles de Gaulle international airport (a 50 minutes ride).
The whole neighborhood is very lively, it's considered to be one the trendiest place to live in. Plenty of designer’s stores around, traditional and exotic places to eat... The studio looks onto the backyard, so it stays very quiet during the night.
I provide a full instructions booklet in English so that you can use all the apartment’s apparatus in full.
Clean sheets and towels provided.
Non smoking place, no pet allowed.
No cleaning fee / No deposit asked. The apartment is fully cleaned before your arrival and after your departure.
Check-in time: 2pm at the earliest
Check-out time: 11am at the latest
No smoking, no pets allowed.
We arrived while Axel was away, but the instructions he provided made getting in the building and into the apartment easy. The guide book which has instructions for the lights, computer, washing machine, etc were also very clear and easy to use. The microwave was confusing for an American to use, and I wished there would have been instructions for that as well.
The apartment was as described, very clean, comfortable, and spacious for a studio. We arrived at night and mostly everything was closed except for the sex shop and peep show close by and that gave us a bit of hesitation about the neighborhood, but during the day it was fine. The location was close to Le Marais, but not in Le Marais.
Lägenheten var trevlig med lagom mycket plats för två. Det lutande brädgolvet var charmigt, även taket med sina bjälkar.
Huset var mycket lugnt och eftersom lägenheten ligger inåt gården hörs inte mycket oväsen från gatan på natten.
Läget är OK, gatan håller på att hämta upp sitt tidigare dåliga rykte och är mest ett tillhåll för unga - och turister.
Vi träffade aldrig Axel, nyckeln skulle hämtas i ett kodat skåp utanför dörren, vilket var ganska svårmanövrerat. Det tog tid att komma in.
När vi skulle avresa måste vi lämna kl 11 utan möjlighet att ställa bagaget någonstans. När jag bokade hade jag uppfattat som att det skulle (website hidden) fick vi gå och dra väskorna efter oss tills det var dags att åka till flygplatsen kl 18. Inte bra.
Annars var vi nöjda med vistelsen och tre trappor upp utan hiss är överkomligt - om man inte har alltför mycket bagage.
Alex's apartment is in a perfect location to get to know Paris, a short walking distance from two main Metro lines and many restaurants, bars and bakeries around. The apartment is exactly as shown on the photos, and has everything a guest needs, from a very comfortable bed, shower and all toiletries, to a real fridge, sink, and high speed internet. Alex is very detailed in the instructions, and the apartment is everything and more. Alex also responded immediately to my emails about arriving and departing, but really, the room has everything one needs and more. I would definitely stay at Alex's location again on a trip to Paris.
Axel was very accommodating as our arrival time changed but he met us no problem.
The location of this apartment is FABULOUS!!!! I would highly recommend to anyone who wants to feel the heart beat of Paris this is the place to stay. Great shopping, great food and drinks and close to all tourist adventures.
Walking distance to everything you want to see in Paris for sure!
We are travelers so the exotic sex shops on the street did not bother us at all! For anyone who has been in Hamburg Germany its a bit like Steindam in Hamburg. Harmless and NON issue!
The Apartment itself is a bit smaller than the picture leads you to believe.But for us it did not matter at all. Comfortable bed, great internet, and location location location was the bomb!
Tercer piso muy acogedor, comodo y comfortable para una pareja joven. Muy limpio, ordenado y con todas las facilidades tecnologicas que puedas pedir. Muy bien situado en el puro centro de París.
Absolutely perfect accommodations! Axel left clear instructions on entering the apartment, as well for all of the electronics/lights etc.
The neighbourhood was reminiscent of an area of Toronto, Ontario, Canada that I used to work in, so it wasn't my favourite, but it was it was in no way a bad neighbourhood, lively.
The apartment was very quiet, the breeze was fantastic coming through the large windows.
If you have heavy luggage, just be aware that it's 3 flights up.
There is a "door bell" that activates the lights in the staircase, this came in handy at night.
Because of this experience, I'm hooked on Airbnb, and would not stay in a hotel while travelling again.
We loved Axels apartment! The location was fantastic and we really felt lucky to live like locals in a secure apartment block.
Axel has created such a comfortable place, with great bed & couch, complete with a stocked bathroom, a hard drive loaded with movies, guide book and the dongle was so handy, we never had to fold out a huge map!
Easy to get to from everywhere, we couldn't have stumbled upon a more convenient location. Nearby restaurants were both fun and delicious- whether we had a burger at big fernand or a 3 course French meal. The loads of supermarkets and fresh food on nearby rue montorgueil had everything we could possibly need.
We felt at home and had a great week. Thanks again :)
