It was a real pleasure to stay at Xavier’s apartment. Booking, check-in and check-out was easy. Though we didn’t meet Xavier in person, his friend Koro met us at the apartment and was very helpful and easy-going. She answered all our questions and gave some useful advice. She is very nice.
The location is excellent – the area is safe, nice and very convenient, not far from the very centre. We were pleasantly surprised to discover another subway station Ledru-Rollin, 8-th line just 2 min from the house. (there are metro stations in Paris at every step)
The apartment itself is very cute, cozy, stylish, completely equipped and specious for two of us. The fact that you live under the roof with sloping ceilings, with typically Parisian view from the balcony gives you additional unforgettable feeling of having a great time in Paris.
Paris is fantastic. We highly recommend to visit this great city and stay exactly in this apartment, as you will feel the real atmosphere of Paris and have awesome experience and impressions. To a great extent, our trip was a success thanks to the owner. We are very grateful to him for helping make our journey so enjoyable! Grand merci, Xavier and Koro!
Did not get to see Xavier, but his friend Koro attended to us and was extremely nice friendly and helpful. The location of the flat in Bastille is amazing, lots of nice bistros and restaurants including branded fashion shops literally across the flat. The metro is also really close.
The only issue with the flat is that the lift doesn't go all the way up, so we have to climb up two floors still to reach the flat - not good for my elderly parents. But otherwise eveyrthing was perfect and clean. The sofa bed was very comfortable and bathroom clean. Views from the balcony was stunning too.
High recommend this flat !
We really enjoyed our stay in Xaviers apartment.
It is just as described, very cosy and clean and just big enough for 4 (2 adults and 2 eleven year olds). You have everything you need in this place and Rue de Charonne is great for shopping.
Both Xavier and his friend Koro were very kind and helpful. (We arrived very late but Koro waited for us and met us in the apartment)
We would love to come back!
Thank you so much, Xavier and Koro!
Under the roofs of the Bastille was everything we expected and more. Communication with the host was easy and since Xavier was not available, his friend Koro helped us settle in telling us about the neighborhood, apartment, dining, and she was also readily available for any additional questions during our stay. Koro is super friendly and made us feel instantly welcomed. The place was perfect, in the heart of the Bastille with restaurants and cafes at your doorstep. Roomy enough for the three of us, with a great bathroom and wonderful little balcony with the Eiffel Tower, Bastille, and Sacre- coeur in view. The metro was at the end of the block for easy access to all the major sites in Paris. Highly recommend. Thank you Xavier and thank you Koro!
Excellent place to stay in Paris! We felt very safe in Xavier's home and it was very convenient to go almost anywhere in Paris! There are many shops, markets, and restaurants nearby so it's very convenient. Xavier & his friend were excellent hosts, and answered all our questions very quickly. We had no problems at all and would stay here again should we return to Paris!
Great apartment, highly recommended.
We had a great time at Xavier's place in Paris. An excellent apartment, great location and I highly recommend it. Koro, who met us in lieu of Xavier at the apartment, was very friendly and understanding about our arriving 30 minutes late due to a delay in our flight's arrival time. The apartment is right next to all the clubs and bars in on Rue de Lappe. From here you can walk to places like the Marais or Pere Lachaise cemetery, or catch the subway at Bastille. The 1 Line that goes through the Metro stop can take you along the north bank of the Seine all the way to the Arc de Triumphe and makes for efficient travel around the city. Also, Gare de Lyon is nearby, so you can catch TGV trains to points south easily from there. It is really convenient.
The apartment itself is really nice, just the right size for a couple. The kitchen is functional and the nespresso machine is quite nice to have around. There's a nice little balcony too. The apartment seems to have been renovated recently, was very clean and new-ish seeming while retaining charm with the exploded wooden beams. The bed was very comfortable and the bath tub great for soaking in after a long day of walking around the city. I'd definitely consider staying in it again if I ever found myself back in Paris someday.
One thing that you can't see in the pictures is that it does have a toilet in the bathroom. We were worried there was a shared bath room but this wasn't the case.
All in all 5 stars of 5!!!
Xavier's place was wonderful. The location was perfect and the apt was quiet. From the living room you can partially see the eiffel tower - which is very cool at night when the lights on the tower are on. I would definitely stay there again. Thanks to Karo for managing the check-in and check-out process.
