The Space

An authentic Parisian apartment with wooden beams and high end design furniture to guarantee a wonderful stay in Paris, right next to the Jardin du Luxembourg in the 6th arrondissement, Rive Gauche, which is known for its cafés, restaurants and luxury shops. The apartment is situated in a house which dates from 1645 but has all the modern amenities, (email hidden) connection. There's a lot of light and beautiful views thanks to the fourth and topmost floor. There is also a little supermarket in the same building and a boulangerie around the corner where you can buy your fresh morning croissants.

  • Mikko is an incredible individual and surely one of the most reliable people I have been in contact with. I booked his place for two nights but couldn't end up staying on the nights I had booked. I mentioned to him that I was going to propose to my girlfriend in Paris and asked if he could help. He responded in 20 minutes and I'm sure I could not have found a more helpful person. He put me in touch with a friend who was absolutely incredible and helped me propose - making our night so amazing and special. Thank you for being a part of that special day, Mikko. I could tell that you were a good person through your reviews but I had no idea what an incredible person I had reached out to for help. I am forever in debt to you and Siobhan for your willingness to help!

  • We thoroughly enjoyed our time in this apartment, which was large, spacious, clean and exactly as depicted in the photos. The apartment is very conveniently located. Mikko was extremely friendly, a helpful host who answered any questions we had and ensured we had a pleasant stay. We would recommend this apartment to other airbnb users traveling to Paris without hesitation.

  • Miko was very informative to places to visit and eat and a overall great guy to talk to. He was also very quick to respond back to our inquiry. The apartment was exactly what we saw in the pictures and it was beautiful.

  • Wonderfully charming Paris apt. Mikko is an excellent communicator and he gave us excellent directions to get to his place from the airport. He also shared sites of interest in the area. We loved the location of his apartment and were able to walk to Notre Dame, Seine river cruises, the Louvre, several gardens, and more. Very nice and reasonably priced restaurants nearby for very good meals. In apt laundry was a wonderful plus. Mikko was a great host!

  • Had to find a place on short notice in Paris and stumbled across this place. What a great find! Mikko was a fantastic person to deal with and was terrific for showing me the apartment and helping me get used to the area. The area is amazing and compared to some places around Paris, extremely friendly. The apartment itself was outstanding and I was able to take advantage of the great weather by opening the windows. Highly recommend!

  • Mikko's apartment was in a fabulous location. We were able to walk to Notre Dame, ST. Chappelle, the Musee de Cluny as well as to the boulevard St. Michel where we ate every evening. The famous Polidor restaurant which was featured in Woody Allen's movie Midnight In Paris is just a few blocks away. Never had to take a taxi while we there as walking combined with the Metro (also just a few blocks away) was all we needed.
    Furthermore, Mikko was a great host, offering us wine and food when we arrived. would recommend this apt. to everyone. Sherwood and karen.

  • Before our visit Mikko was in touch to let us know about the apartment, who our greeter would be while he was away, and also offered great advice and tips. This is a top floor apartment which was great because we didn't feel as guilty after all the treats we consumed on vacation. The apartment was great for me my husband and 9 year old daughter. Everything we needed was provided plus we really enjoyed the apartment decor. Location was perfect. Close to everything but not noisy at all. A suggestion if you are traveling from afar and arrive early in the morning...book the apartment the day before you arrive so you can come in right away for a nap. It's worth it! Mikko was a great host.

  • We really enjoyed staying in Mikko's apartment. We had a 5 hour delay which pushed our arrival at the apartment to around midnight. Mikko had arranged for someone to meet us otherwise it would have been difficult to get in. Our communication was frequent and helpful. Mikko supplied very good instructions to reach the apartment.

    The location of the apartment is excellent. It is on the top floor, so it is a bit of a drag carrying suitcases. n the other hand every time that I went up the staircase (without suitcases) I marvelled at how old and charming the building was.

    I definitely recommend Mikko's place for a stay in paris.

  • Very friendly host who does everything he can to make your stay as comfortable and trouble-free as possible. Really a great host! Mikko has thought of everything - he even left a couple of power plug adapters out for our convenience. Super well organized, functional, clean, and bright apartment in the best location of all of Paris. Mikko and his apartment is highly recommended.

  • We loved staying in Mikko's home. We felt like birds high up in the Paris sky. Mikko's apartment is comfortable, full of natural light, clean and beautifully decorated. Mikko is a wonderful host. He even agreed to carry my heavy luggage up the four flights of stairs. We would definitely stay again in this lovely spot minutes away from our favorite park in Paris.
