Loft - Sunny & Charming in Paris !!

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Boulevard de Magenta, Paris, Île-de-France 75010, France

Gorgeous loft near Gare du Nord (50m) and Gare de l'Est. Easy access. Very sunny. Enjoy a splendid building, and easy access to all major subway/bus/train lines! Don't forget to read every comment let by the previous guests, I know you will like it!

The Space

It is ideally located 100m away from the Gare du Nord and 500m away from the Gare
de l’Est in a typical Parisian neighbourhood (on the Denain/Magenta boulevard).

The flat is 30m² on the 2nd floor of a beautiful building with a main room, a bathroom with toilets and bathtub and fully equipped kitchen (heating plates, sink, table &
chairs, fridge, microwave, dishes...)

The main room (loft) is 25m² with a 2 persons bed, a desk with a computer (not to be used !) and a couch ideally facing a huge 60” flat screen TV with cable.

The neighbourhood is kind of a nice popular district with a lot of stores just a
few steps away : Dia, Leader Price, Monoprix, Subway, Quick, Macdonald,
Hippopotamus, Buffalo Grill, Chinese & Japanese restaurants, kebab and various
sandwich shops... 
Also in the area : Point Soleil, dry-cleaning, automatic laundry, bars & pubs, cafés,
newsagent, souvenirs shops...

Regarding transportation it won’t be easy to find a better location: RER (lines B, D
& E) will lead you to Châtelet, Gare de Lyon or les Champs Elysées in less than 15
minutes. Subways (lines 4, 5 & 7), vélib’ (self service bikes, 15m from the door) or
a dozen buses will allow you to get in most touristic spots in Paris in half an hour or
less : Louvre, Champs Elysées, Moulin Rouge, Notre Dame de Paris, Père Lachaise
cemetery, St Germain des Près, Canal Saint martin, Basilique du Sacré-Cœur de
Montmartre.

“Open Tour Paris” buses are also stopping down the street.

Bref, a nice and functional flat, a perfect way to spend a few days (weeks ? months ?
) in Paris at a reasonable cost !

The price includes water (cold & hot), electricity & heating, high speed internet (WiFi),
cable TV, clean towels and (website hidden) : I speak English, hablo Espanol tambien et, bien sûr, je parle (website hidden)² : The deposit is made by AirBnB. They will register your credit card (they make a "print") and give me 48h after you leave to make any claim (I've never used it and I’m sure there will be no need :-) )

See you soon.

  • The flat perfectly served my needs for a place to stay for a night close to Gare du Nord; it's a shame I didn't have more time to explore the canals nearby, perhaps next time. Otherwise, it was very clean, decorated very serenely (I really loved the Zen pieces) with a comfortable bed, good shower. In spite of some confusion on how to enter which was exacerbated by the earlier loss of my phone with the instructions, Benjamin was very easy to reach for guidance (as were his neighbors!). Finally, although I did not use the kitchen it seemed to be very functional; there is a grocery store nearby as well. Overall I'd recommend this as a lovely spot from which to explore Paris.

    Thanks Erin ! :)

  • We’ve had a great stay at Benjamin’s apartment. It is very close (5 mins walk) to the Gare du Nord station which made it a convenient place for arrival/departure and traveling throughout the city. The apartment itself was as described: good bed, shower and WiFi. Benjamin was very responsive via e-mail and provided clear instructions. Thanks a lot!

    You're welcome. I hope to see you again. Best wishes for 2014 ! :)

  • First off, I would like to thank Benjamin for being so accommodating especially when it was so last minute.
    His apartment was a great place to stay, the location was fantastic and it was spanking clean as well.
    Although we were out for most of the time it really helped that it was next to the Gare du Nord station. So for those who needs to take the Eurostar it is just a 5 minute walk away, even with luggages. I strolled along 2 luggages and I didn't face an issue of catching my train.
    I guess the only downside is that there wasn't any elevator so I had to walk up and down 3 times to haul my luggages.
    Good workout to warm up the body during the cold season.
    I will definitely stay again!
    Take care Ben and hopefully we will meet this time around.

    Thanks!

    Glad to ear everything was ok. Hope to see you again !

  • Ben's apartment is FANTASTIC. It was perfect for the two of us to be so close to the Gare du Nord and many metro lines and walking distance from lots of great shopping and food (my favorite croissants from Du Pain et des idees was .5 miles!) This was exactly what we were looking for. The location was the best and Ben left a lovely guide to the neighborhood and city. Can't wait to go back!

  • The apartment is locate at very strategy location. It's very near to Gare du Nord station, whereby it's very convenience to travel to Airport, railway station, metro station and Disney Land.
    The apartment is surrounded by restaurant, cafe, grocery and etc. So, you can easily find anything that you want.
    They are always people around the apartment area and you will feel safe even walking alone back to the apartment. Thank you very much, Ben.

  • Ben's apartment is the perfect place to stay in Paris!! Located right next to the train station, we were able to easily pick up the keys and walk there in less than 5 minutes. The kitchen was well-stocked to prepare breakfast and Ben left a helpful guide with great suggestions. It is also nearby to the supermarket and many restaurants. We would love to stay here again and highly recommend to all!

    Thanks, I'm glad to ear that :)

  • The apartment loft was everything that was described in the listing. Ben was very helpful and kept in constant communication before the trip and provided very easy to navigate instructions for how to get there and get it. His guide he left in the apartment for Paris was also incredibly helpful!

    Hi Tosha, I'm glad to ear you enjoy your stay in my flat. See you soon !

  • Great studio apartment 5 min walk from Gare du Nord which was very convenient because we came directly by train from Charles De Gaulle Airport. Very clean and comfortable, has everything required (Comfortable bad, microwave, WiFi, refrigerator). Benjamin was a lovely host and accepted us very early in the morning. One thing that you should note and we didn't notice is that the apt located on the 3rd floor without an elevator, so if you have a really heavy luggage this might be a challenge. In addition, there's no AC in the apt so we slept with open windows, which leads to another issue is that it's quite noisy outside. But I guess that if you want to stay in the heart of Paris it would be noisy anywhere. In overall, we really enjoyed our stay in the apt and Paris and would be very happy to do it again. Thank you Benjamin!

    You're welcome ! It will be a pleasure to see you again. Have a nice trip !

  • My best friend and I went and stayed in Benjamin's flat. It's a really cute flat - the stairwell is a journey in itself and was the source of many delightful Parisien daydreams!

    The location is amazing - so close to the station and the canal. You really couldn't ask for more.

    Despite the slightly unusual key pick-up arrangements, it all went really smoothly. The second door lock is a bit tempramental, but I got the hang of it pretty quickly!

    The shower is wonderful and the sofa is really comfy.

    Thanks Benjamin.

About
Ex-small town man, I've been living in Paris for 3 years and I'm still loving it ! Especially the 10th district, where you can have a walk at Montmartre, deal in second-hands goods at les Puces or visit the African town near by Barbès. But I love travelling too : my next stops could be Thailand or Myanmar, maybe US (NY or SF) : I've never been there ! I like design, cinema, (french) food and sport (boxe, football...) (I'm the admin and owner of "Amoureux du 10ème arrondissement / 10th district lovers" AirBnB group)
