Neighbourhood was interesting, we found a lot of small nice, cool, cafe's/restaurants, shops etc. Apartment is only 2 mins from the metro. Our host was very helpful and happy to offer advice on what to do etc. Thank you!
Franck was a very delightful host even though I didn't seem, he kept in touch all through via phone making sure the stay was pleasant.
The apartment was very neat and homely. The internet worked very well and the neighbourhood is close to so many things happening at night without it being noisy.
My wife and I had a wonderful time seeing from Franck's apartment and I highly recommend him
Everything was perfect..very nice neighbourhood..Definately recommended..
We enjoyed our stay at Franck's. He was very welcoming and accommodating. Before we arrived, we received a detailed email with very clear directions, recommendations and practical information.
When we arrived, he met us at the apartment, showed us around, and gave us a very good intro to the neighborhood. We had a nice chat, it was a pleasure to meet him.
The apartment was very cozy. Two important considerations for me are the bed and street noise. At Franck's, the bed was very comfortable, and the apartment was extremely quiet!! An added bonus, I particularly enjoyed the Nespresso machine! There was everything we needed to add to our experience of Paris.
We noticed a couple of lively cafés nearby that looked fun on our way to and from the Metro though we didn't stop in.
L'apartament es idoni per dos persones. Molt tranquil. Tot molt correcte. Està molt aprop del Metro.
