Franck est super gentil et accueillant. Son appart est très confortable et spacieux. Rien à reprocher. Il nous à indiqué un problème d'eau chaude avant notre arrivé et nous a permis de facilement modifier notre réservation en conséquence.
The apartment is ideally situated in a very lively cafe, restaurant and bar district of Paris with great access to the metro. The apartment is how it is described on the AirBB site with a good firm bed, comfy sofa, and excellent wifi. The apartment receives very nice morning sun. The kitchen is a little dated but is very functional.
Franck was very helpful in arranging the keys for our arrival and responded very quickly to our emails. He also provided a very helpful guide to the local area for shops, cafes and restaurants, and maps to explore Paris with.
We had a small issue with the hot water service when we were there which Franck attended to immediately.
Overall a very good place to stay to explore Paris.
Franck's apartment was perfect! He went out of his way to help us solve difficulties in the last minute. The area we were staying in was super convenient and interesting, and the apartment was beyond comfortable. Thanks Franck!
Renting Franck's place was great! Check in was super easy. The apartment was comfy and perfect for your needs. We loved the neighbourhood too, as it was very diverse and colourful, with lots of fun bars and restos nearby. Not the typical touristy sort you find in the 1st, 2nd or 6th arrondissements in Paris. We would rent from Franck again!
Franck was very informative and kind with his advice for Paris. His apartment provided all of the essentials for the stay.
Franck è molto disponibile e comunicativo. Le indicazioni che fornisce sono precise ed utili. L'appartamento è come descritto, comodo per brevi soggiorni, per chi vuole esplorare Parigi e le sue bellezze (attenzione però se avete problemi con le scale, è al quarto piano, senza ascensore).
Il quartiere è silenzioso e il letto comodo.
Nel complesso un ottimo rapporto qualità/prezzo.

Franck a été un hôte tres prévenant, chaleureux et très content de m'accueillir. Son appartement fut parfait et idéalement placé pour mon séjour de 12 Jours. Un quartier vivant mais pas bruyant avec toutes les facilités et commodités à proximité (métro, bus, commerces, Restau, bars …)
About the Host, Franck
I'm curious and open-minded.
I love meeting new people, discussions, poker, cinema, surf and snowboard, everything's related to contemporary architecture and design.
I rent my appartment as described there :
- NIGHTS : 3 night minimum
- MORE THAN A WEEK : I'm open, everything depends on the dates...
Hope you'll enjoy the photos and wish to meet you soon ;-)
