Matt was super-nice and gave us a little tour of the neighbourhood even though we came in late. The apartment is right in the center of Paris and you'll feel like a real Parisien. The apartement itself is ok for the price, again real Parisien!
Matt's accommodation can be summarised in 4 words: depressing, dirty, dank and deplorable. Frankly speaking, it is disrespectful for such accommodation to be offered to a group of 4 people or even to anyone. The walls are cracked in some places, and the paint is peeling, the lights are so dim, the kitchen is so minuscule that you can step on your own feet, with old greasy pans. There was hair on the bed sheet of a bunker bed, that seemed to be propped up by a curtain rail! The bottom part of the bunker bed was missing, in its place, there were dusty boxes. The sleeper couch had a filthy sheet hang over it. Need I say more, my children were so depressed after travelling so far, that I immediately had to walk the streets and search for alternative accommodation, in the dark!
When I informed the owner, he said, "So I have long hair, it could have dropped off 15 days ago when I stayed at the apartment." The hair on the bed was blond, not brunette!
Fellow travellers, do yourself a favor and walk 2 blocks ahead on the same street for much more decent accommodation being offered at the same price. Dismiss any positive reviews for this accommodation, they were probably made by family or friends and are meant to mislead you.
Airbnb, do the travellers a favor and remove this listing, it is a disgrace to what you are offering and it negatively affects the credibility of your company.
We had a great stay in Matt's place. It should be your pick when you are looking for a simple but nice and reasonable priced appartment near Republique and Le Marais. It isnt romantic but therefore you can go to the nearby Canal St Martin. The communication was great as Matt's English is perfect.
Gemütliche Wohnung im 4. Stock, ideal für 1 Paar. Sehr ruhig obwohl sehr zentral gelegen (U-Bahn Stationen Strassbourg St. Denis und Chateau d'Eau in unmittelbarer Nähe). Interessantes Quartier. Matt ist ein guter und diskreter Gastgeber.
Wir würden bei einem nächsten Paris Besuch wieder hier absteigen.
La ubicación del piso era bastante buena, cerca de una parada de metro con buena conexión con el centro.
El piso de tamaño adecuado para dos personas, dejaba bastante que desear en cuanto a orden y limpieza. Muchos trastos viejos del dueño y de viajeros, y bastante suciedad.
Los utensilios de cocina no animaban a usarlos.
Falta de mantenimiento general del piso, grifos y cisternas estropeados.
Solo con un poco mas de cuidado, el piso seria genial, pero esta bastante descuidado.
Matt's apartment is in a very central area of Paris, and Matt himself was extremely helpful in making sure that we got to his place without any problems and had everything we (website hidden) was great to be living in a real home - even with a few minor idiosyncrasies - and the view over the courtyard and rooftops opposite was charming. The apartment is on the fourth floor and there is no lift, so make sure you can handle your luggage! All in all, a wonderful stay - we hope to return. Mary
