I was sick with a fever during my stay in Paris, Brigitte was very caring and took care me a lot, she always checked on my condition and made sure I had everything I wanted. She is a very kind-hearted lady and very informative. Her apartment is gorgeous and very easy to reach the metro. The room is very clean and tidy even she have had guests a lot. She is extremely helpful starts from the planning of your trip to your return flight.
I highly recommend her as your host for your stay in Paris.
Brigitte-Marie was an excellent host. Our stay in Opera Bastille was delightful. Birgitta is helpful, friendly, speaks perfect English, and is very unobtrusive. Our room was lovely and her apartment is brilliant.
Brigitte was a wonderful Host. I had a little difficulty getting to her place because the Paris marathon shut down many streets. She went out of her way to help me. the area was easy to get around, metro and buses close and the room comfortable. Our host was very welcoming.
Brigitte was a perfect host. We were made to feel very welcome and at home. Brigitte communicated with us as soon as our stay was confirmed giving us information on all our options to get from the Airport to her location and a page of websites for things we may require during our trip. Her instructions were great and her place was easy to find. Over breakfast Brigitte helped us with how public transport works and answered any questions we had which allowed us not to waste time on working it all out. The room was very comfortable and we had everything we needed. The location was fantastic, just a quick walk to trains, buses, supermarket and shops. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Brigitte and highly recommend anyone visiting Paris to stay at this place.
We have been visiting Paris regularly for short breaks for over 40 years, staying in various hotels. We have been living in Provence for nearly 8 years , now we have retired and enjoy the French life. This visit we booked a room in an apartment on the rue de Lyon, betwen La Gare de Lyon and La Bastille. We took the TGV to La Gare de Lyon and were able to walk to the apartment. We had no dificulty finding the block of apartments and entered using the codes provided. Mme. Ubertalli was waiting for us as arranged and gaves us a warm welcome in French and English. She was most charming and proceeded to show us around the apartment. Our room was a good size with TV,tea and coffee making facilities and wifi We had our own bathrom with separate bath and shower. There was also a delightful sitting room and we had use of the fridge in the small kitchen. The apartment was spotless and a maid cleans once a week. Mme Uberalli gave us a key with an electronic key fob to bypass the security codes.
We bought Mobilis tickets from La Gare de Lyon to get around Paris. We mainly used the buses which came down la rue de Lyon to get to the places we had planned to visit. We also used the bus across the road to take us La Gare du Nord to take Eurostar to London.
There are a few bars/retaurants near the apartment. The roads were busy during the day but did quieten down in the evening.
We really enjoyed our 3 night stay and would recommend ths apartment in Paris.
However will not be using airbnb again as we found the security measures too intrusive.
Brigitte is the most wonderful host and gave me the best experience i could have hoped for as a first time airbnb guest.
I am most thankful for your help with retrieving my lost luggage from the airport (especially due to my limited french!), transportation tips and your kind and friendly nature.
Thank you so much for having me and making me feel welcome. i hope to come back again soon!
An absolutely marvellous stay. Bridgette's home is so cozy and has so much history. We loved the area and how easy it was to get around Paris from Bastille. We will definitely be back . She was so knowledgable about Paris and gave us some great advice. Thank you Brigette for the wonderful experience.
