Thu Trang et Bertrand ont été d'excellents hôtes. À notre arrivée Thu-Trang nous attendait afin de nous remettre les clés et nous permettre de garer la voiture dans leur parking sous-terrain (très très pratique). Avec son sourire et beaucoup d'enthousiasme elle nous a expliqué le fonctionnement du mobilier de l'appartement et donner de bons conseils quant aux restos et endroits où se procurer de la nourriture aux alentours. Tout y est et tout est très facile d'accès - moins de 5 minutes à pieds. Thu-Trang a aussi été très disponible pour toute question que nous pouvions avoir durant notre séjour !
L'appartement est très joli et très fonctionnel. On y est vraiment confortable, les espaces sont grands et la terrasse est agréable ! On peut très facilement y loger 4 personnes sans se sentir coincé !
Il est vrai que cet arrondissement peut sembler loin des principales attractions de Paris, mais en métro tout est accessible en environ 20 minutes. Une station de métro se situe à 2 minutes à pieds. Le parc des Buttes-Chaumont juste à côté est une véritable découverte. Il est à une minute à pied et offre un superbe environnement de détente ainsi que de petits restos/bars vraiment sympathiques. Il fait bon revenir dans ce quartier plutôt tranquille après de longues journées passées à marcher et visiter les sites touristiques.
Si vous cherchez un quartier tranquille et relax et des hôtes vraiment sympathiques, si vous voulez sortir de la zone touristique et plutôt tenter de vivre comme un parisien, je vous conseille fortement cet appartement !
Pour les fêtes de fin d'années, avec les enfants sur Paris, nous avons parfaitement communiquer avec Thu Trang et Bertrand pour trouver le meilleur moment d'arriver. Les beau-parents nous ont tres bien accueillis dans ce superbe loft, oú tronait un magnifique sapin de Noël. Super pied a terre pour Paris, bonus si vous avez une voiture a garer, un garage souterrain.
Bref, top, a recommander.
What a treat it was to stay in this huge Paris loft! I almost don't want to review it because I want it to stay a secret! Thu-Trang and Bertrand have done an amazing job decorating this apartment, and we felt so lucky to have such a huge private terrace in Paris! Thank you Thu-Trang and Bertrand for sharing it with us!
If you are ready to get away from the touristy areas of Paris and get to know the "real" Paris, this is the place for you. It is less than a block from the beautiful Buttes Chaumont Park, which is an absolute gem, and about a 10 minute walk to Canal St. Martin. The neighborhood is safe, there is a supermarket around the corner, and cafes and places to eat within walking distance. My daughter and I felt safe walking around the neighborhood at night. One metro line is a 2 minute walk, and another metro line is a 10 minute walk. (If you use the Buttes Chaumont station, be sure to use the elevator - it has way too many steps!)
Having rented several very small studios in the past in Paris in more "touristy" areas, we felt so lucky to be staying in Thu-Trang and Bertrand's spacious and beautiful place.
Thu-Trang was a very good communicator with us both before and during our stay, and both she and Bertrand were available by phone during our stay to field any questions and issues.
We would love to stay here again!
Fantastic appartment! Very nicely decorated, a great terrace and the space is awesome. The owners have been very helpful and were able to surprise us with a nice bottle of wine upon arrival :-) We definitely recommend it!
The reservation was canceled 38 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We had a fantastic 10 days in Thu Trang and Bertrand's loft. This place is a mixture of modern loft and fun park! My husband and I stayed with our 3 ( nearly 4) yr old son and found it extremely comfortable. One of the best parks in Paris is located just a short stroll away at the end of the street. Perfect for children and having lazy picnics on the long summer evenings. Their is a supermarket just one street over that will service most of your grocery needs but also plenty of specialty foody stores around. And it has to be noted that cooking in Thu Trang's kitchen was a highlight of my trip. My parents-in-law were in Paris at the same time and we enjoyed several meals around the massive 8 seater dining table. This is a big place by Paris standards with the outdoor deck and furniture also adding to your options.
You have a metro very close by so public transport is very good.
There is no bathtub but the shower is excellent - very comfortable for my tall husband. Oh, and you'll love Thu Trang's quality bath sheets.
In fact, you'll find everything of the very best quality at this place.
For those that don't have much French like me you'll find planning your trip with TT a breeze as she speaks perfect English and replies to enquiries very quickly. Her neighbours( who also speak English) were also very helpful with the one minor issue we had.
I would gladly stay at this place again if it's available for our next trip and give it the highest recommendation.
We had great time staying at the loft apartment.We have never met the hosts personally but they are very nice and very helpful. We were in touch with them via phone throughout our stay.
The apartment is spacious, modern and hip. It was perfect for us. It's located in a very fascinating area that you can explore for days and forget about the rest of Paris. And yet, if you want to get to the heart of Paris you can quickly get there by metro. For those who like to walk we recommend going through the Park des Buttes Chaumont down to the Bassin de Villette and then along the Canal St Martin to the Place de la Republique.
Next time in Paris we would try to stay in the same place.
