We stayed 10 nights and absolutely enjoyed our stay at Elsa's apartment for several reasons. Spacious, comfortable with most amenities of home. Being 5 mins from the Metro was a big plus. Being very close to the super market meant we could get whatever needed without having to lug the shopping bags a long distance. A fine boulangerie near the metro meant breakfast was never too far! We would highly recommend staying at Elsa's apartment. You can't go wrong!
Suggestion: If you are staying longer than a week and plan to use the Metro a lot to hop around Paris look into getting a Navigo Metro pass
L'immeuble récent et l'appartement super joli.
Tout à fait conforme à la description.
Elsa m'a très bien accueilli et m'a indiqué tout ce qu'il fallait pour que le séjour se passe bien.
La position est idéal près de Paris et dans un coin sympa
Elsa's apartment is really amazing!
It is on the third floor of a new, modern and safe block of apartments(you have to pass through 3 different doors to enter the building) just a 2 min walking distance to the metro station of Mairie de Lilas(line 11).
The place was exactly as shown in the photos, maybe even better!
2 separate double bedrooms, separate kichen with oven(remember to turn all the three buttons to make it work! Lol), a spacy living room with the sofa and the armchair as in the pictures as well as a very convenient -for a family- dinner table.
And the most important: everything in the house was very very clean and tidy!!!
The wifi worked perfect.
Unfortunatelly we didnt have the pleasure to meet Elsa in person(we contact each other though by email or mobile text messages) but her brother (a very kind person also) has been waiting for us on the metro station and led us to that wonderful house.
The neighborhood looked nice and safe also, with a few cozy restaurants and shops around...
A big carrefour supermarket is just a few steps away from Elsa's place.
Even though the apartment is not in the very center of Paris the line 11 leads you directly to Chatelet in less than 20' without having to wait more than 2' in the station. From Chatelet which is the most central subway station of Paris you can take any line to go almost everywhere(including RER for the airport and the train to disneyland).
Very good value for money apartment.
Thank you again Elsa for all your hospitality and kindness!
Next time you visit Athens please text me or mail me, I will be very happy to meet you finally!
Nous avons passé un merveilleux noël aux Lilas dans l'appartement d'Elsa. L'appartement est spacieux, confortable et très bien situé, près du métro, magasins de bouche, supermarché... Et en plus l'endroit est calme. On espère pouvoir y retourner prochainement!
Elsa welcomed us at the nearby metro station and showed us to the apartment. The apartment is designed well, was clean and tidy and Elsa told us all we needed to know for our stay there.
When planning our trip staying outside the Paris center was a compromise we were prepared to make, but the location was much better than we had hoped. It really was only a three minute walk to the Metro, but it is also so a small station so you are quickly on the platform and the trains run very frequently. We rarely waited more than 2 minutes before we were on our way. Also, many of the Metro lines we used directly intersected the Châtelet line so we generally didn't need to travel the full length of the line anyway.
Finally, shops were handy, and we valued the quietness of the area immediately around the apartment.
We recommend Elsa's comfortable and convenient flat.
It's in a recently built block of flats, perhaps around 10 years old, and although it's in a quiet car-free area, it's just three or four minutes walk to Mairie des Lilas metro stop. Line 11 starts here and it's just 20 minutes to Chatelet in the centre of Paris at the other end of this short metro line. This is the only line at Mairie des Lilas so there's no chance of taking the wrong train.
The apartment building is very secure. It has a security code to open an outer iron gate. When you've gone through the gate, there's another security code to open the building's outer door into the lobby where the mail boxes are. Then there's an inner door, opened by an electronic key tag, to get to the lift area. And, of course, the flat door itself is very secure.
Not that Les Lilas gives the impression of needing all this security. It looks like a pleasant bustling provincial French town, even though it's so close to central Paris. The covered market, open on Wednesday and Sunday mornings, is worth a visit. It's about five minutes walk past the metro along rue de Paris.
The flat is well-designed and comfortably furnished, as the pictures show. You can reach the balcony from the sitting room. And although the pictures don't currently show the second bedroom, it also has a door to the balcony.
The kitchen has a washing machine and a dishwasher, as well as the usual hob and oven. The dishwasher is particularly welcome when you're on holiday.
The bathroom has a nice double length shower, stretching the length of bathroom, which you can see in one of the pictures. It has a thermostatic control and a choice of two shower heads.
For visiting Les Lilas, the flat is ideal. And even for visiting central Paris, it's so close to the metro station that for some people it would be a better value choice than more costly central accommodation.
Nous conseillons vivement l'appartement d'Elsa. Il es tout d'abord superbe, refait à neuf, impécable. Il est grand, 2 chambres, bien équipé et très agréable. Il est parfait pour une famille ou deux couples. Mairie des Lilas est un quartier charmant aux portes de Paris, a deux pas de Belleville, République ou Chatelet.
De plus Elsa est adorable, hyper conciliante et attentive. Foncez sans hésiter! Nous on reviendra, c'est sur!
