This cozy studio apartment (20m2/215ft2) is in a typical Montmartre building and is decorated with antiques and original photography. It has everything you need to make your stay comfortable, including: a new double bed and a single pull-out bed (also new w/ quality mattress), equipped independent kitchen, bathroom with shower, linens, DVD/BlueRay player, TV with international cable channels, free wifi internet connection and unlimited free telephone calls to over 90 countries, including France, the US and Canada (landlines and cell numbers), all EU countries, Australia, South Africa, China and many more (landlines only). On a quiet street in the heart of Montmartre above a neighborhood bakery (fresh croissants, baguettes and pastries are just down the stairs), the apartment is only steps away from the Sacré Coeur and a short walk from Montmartre's many attractions. The neighborhood is replete with boutiques, galleries, cafes, restaurants, music night spots and theaters as well as all the shops, supermarkets, pharmacies and commerce that you may need. It is a short walk from several metro stations (Anvers, Chateau Rouge and Les Abbesses) as well as bus lines to get you anywhere in Paris with ease. The apartment is close to the Gare du Nord, Gare de l'Est and Saint Lazare train stations and is easily accessible from Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports by public transport or taxi. The owner (an American) and his wife (an Italian) are happy to answer any questions you may have about the apartment, the neighborhood or Paris.
A lovely flat and a very kind and flexible host. Great location. I would definitely recommend!
Jeff was a great host. He was out of town, but made check-in very easy and was communicative throughout our stay. I would definitely recommend his flat to others passing through Paris.
Jeff was great! Very communicative and welcoming. The place itself was amazing - great location, very convenient and safe. Next time I come to Paris, I will definitely be looking up this apartment again. Thanks Jeff!
My husband and I spent a week in Paris at Jeff's apartment. Before our arrival, he sent very detailed directions to get from CDG airport to the apartment and he met us promptly upon arrival. It made the beginning of our stay so relaxing and easy. The apartment was very clean, in a superb location and had everything we could need for an amazing week in Paris. Since our departing flight left so early in the morning, Jeff kindly arranged for a taxi to meet us in the morning and take us to the airport. Jeff was so helpful and in the apartment he has a list of recommendations for local restaurants and other amenities. All in all, it was a great trip and I can highly recommend his apartment.
Mon épouse et moi-même avons eu plaisir à passer presque 3 semaines dans l'appartement de Jeff, idéalement situé par rapport à Montmartre, mais aussi par rapport à nos liens familiaux parisiens.
Nous n'hésiterons pas à revenir si l'occasion se représente.
La boulangerie en bas de l'immeuble est juste parfaite: produits de qualité et service aimable.
Me and my friend were in the comfortable and central apartment of Jeff, connected with three different lines of metro and convenient to get around the city. The area is quiet at night and there are many supermarkets and places to eat and drink. The house was in perfect condition, equipped with everything for the kitchen, bathroom and so on. The bed is very comfortable. Jeff is a very punctual and always available via phone and email, it was very kind for our check out to leave our bags while we ended up around the city. A great host and a very nice house to be recommended if you want to go to Paris!
In short, this apartment was awesome. I booked with Jeff because I wanted the experience of living in Paris, and he really delivered. But it's more than just an apartment - the additional amenities like free wifi, free international calling, the towel warmer (which may be standard in Europe, but was a pleasant surprise for me) made this stay exceptional. Close proximity to Sacre Coeur, and four different Metro stops made traveling around the city a breeze, and made me resent Chicago's poor public transportation system even more than usual.
As a host, Jeff is nicer and more helpful than even the fanciest hotel concierge. Directions to his place were very clear, we were in constant communication before my stay, he's prepared local maps for his visitors - and he even waited for more than a half hour with me to get a taxi back to the airport.
I'd recommend Jeff's apartment to anyone going to Paris, especially first time visitors. I couldn't have asked for a better experience.
Jeff has a small, romantic apartment in Montmarte that I went to with my daughter for a week around New Years's. It had everything we needed to cook, comfortable beds, great places nearby to eat, excellent Metro access, and even though, like most Paris buildings of "a certain age", it has quirks (but we wanted an authentic Paris experience, not a 5 star hotel), Jeff takes care of his guests and I would not hesitate to return again if the opportunity presented itself. Jeff is the sort of host you want on AirBnB.
It's hard to add anything useful when a place has been so thoroughly reviewed - what they said!
There's good reason for Jeff's consistently positive reviews. The apartment actually is cozy and well-located, and Jeff actually does respond immediately to emails, texts and phone calls, and gives an amazing amount of attention and care to his guests' comfort.
This is exactly what Airbnb is for: Not just finding a great place to stay, but having a friend waiting for you in a city of strangers. Highly recommended.
My husband and I stayed at Jeff's for six nights in Dec to celebrate our 25th. This was a special vacation so we actually started researching and planning in March! Our experience at Jeff's cozy apt was just wonderful. Too bad we didn't book for two weeks! His romantic and authentically Parisian apt was warm, clean, simply and tastefully decorated and had everything that we needed for a comfortable and secure stay. The location is perfect and we had a lot of fun discovering the incredible array of quality shops including butchers, cheese shops, wine shops, fish mongers, fresh fruit and veggie shops and boullangeries. We love to cook so this was heaven for us! We fell in love with Montmartre but it was very easy to take the metro to all of the special places to visit in other areas of this beautiful and vibrant city. We actually would have had a great holiday just exploring historic Montmartre; the vintage clothing shops, antique and curiosity shops, a lovely perfume bottle shop, the muse Montmartre, the christmas market on the butte at the Sacre Coeur etc. Jeff was there for us 100% but there was no need to contact him once we had settled in. Highlights of our stay included a stroll along the pont neuf, browsing the famous green box stalls along the seine near the Shakespeare and company book store, being mesmerized by the atmosphere of the Shakespeare and company book shop, a visit and a few purchases at E. Dehillerin (AKA cooks paradise :0), coffee at Cafe Lomi, croissants and baguettes that we still warm from Grenier Depain on rue L'Abbess, sitting in cafes and buying groceries and wine at the shops on rue Cutine, absorbing the Vincent van gaugh self portraits and muse D'Orsey, buying art supplies at a couple of the oldest art shops in paris, a very traditional french dinner at la biche au bois and a visit to the Norte dam. We look forward to returning! Celina
