NO SMOKING please
very good. ckose to the tower. a lot of museums nearby could be visited. and the host is a very nice gentleman.
I study there for three months and stay CHEZ PHILIP. The private room is good for a short stay and the neighbor is even better. You can find almost everything at Rue Lecourbe. And be sure to try the De cafe du Roi, which has the best olives in Paris! And if you are looking for a longer stay, frankly speaking, try to find a entire home. Philip is friendly and a Chinese culture lover, he even knows something Chinese people now barely use. The transportation is perfect, you have line 6 and line 12 with 2 mins walk. You can get all the monument by these two. If you have a Navigo, I would recommend the bus line 70 and line 39 Saint-German de Pres and Muse du Louvre is accessible by them.
Anyway a good place to stay and a nice propriétaire you will have.
Philip Maziere gerçekten çok misafirperver bir ev sahibi. Ev konum olarak çok merkezi bir yerde. Her türlü imkana ulaşmanız kolay. Metro istasyonu, otobüs durağı çok yakın mesafede.
Philip ist ein sehr aufmerksamer Gastgeber, der schon vor der Anreise viel Informationen übermittelt hat. Er hat auch während des Aufenthaltes alles getan, damit ich mich wohl fühle. Leider wird er aufhören, weil er die zu hohen steuerlichen Abgaben vermeiden möchte. Dommage!
Very nice experience in Philip's apartment, perfect location with 3 metro lines nearby, by which you can access all spots. Spacious and private though Philip says the apartment is shared, only Fri night he comes for sleeping, others you can enjoy the whole apartment in private. Philip is very kind and helpful guy that my back is hurt so that can't sleep on the soft matters, and Philip gave me a wooden board the other day and makes me feel pleasure in Paris! Besides, the area we lived is pretty safe, even you back to home late in night. Only thing I feel not well that the bedroom and bathroom are little bit messy but clean. But I don't think it's an issue for me as most of time we are sightseeing outside and back home for sleep only. Anyway, I DO appreciate philip's hospitality!
Tak for ugen i din lejlighed og den gode modtagelse selv om det var på et ubekvemt tidspunkt jeg ankom. Jeg nød min uge i Paris, din lejlighed ligger fantastik for busser og metro til at komme rundt i byen. Alt godt fremover.
The flat is very conveniently located and sizable especially since Philip is not staying there all the time. But most importantly Philip was a wonderful host for my son who was in Paris for five weeks for an internship. He even invited my son to join his family for weekend lunch when he first arrived! Merci, Philip!
