About this listing
55 square meters (600 square feet) , 6th floor with a small lift, kitchen+ dining place, shower room (very large shower) , separate toilets, one bedroom with a double bed (140x190 cm) , large living-room with sleeping sofa.
This is my main flat. It is fully equipped : washing machine with a dryer (which can be used only for resistant and small clothes), dishwasher, oven +microwave, induction hob. There is a computer in the living room with a large screen to watch DVDs or the TV (several French and international channels are available), wifi and unlimited access to the Internet. You can give free phone calls to French landlines and to several foreign countries. The piano can be used only during the day (not at night because the neighbours want to be quiet...)
Nice and central location in Paris, between Montmartre and Opera, close to buses and several subway stations, shops everywhere in the surroundings.
Available for short term periods especially when I am travelling (minimum 2 nights, maximum 2 months)
You will get a lot of light in this flat located on the last floor of a small and quiet building.
Guests have access to all the equipments, kitchen tools, computer, hair-dryer, etc. User-guides are available for the guests once arrived and welcomed.
The neighborhood is very nice. Families and artists like the location, everybody loving shopping in the famous rue des Martyrs, going by foot to the numerous theaters or to cinemas on the Grands Boulevards, easy to walk to the touristist area of the Sacré-Coeur Montmartre (5 minutes) or to the Grands Magasins (Galeries Lafayettes 10 minutes)
The flat is very close to Gare du Nord station (10-15 minutes by foot) where all RER B trains coming from Paris airports stop.
The bus no 85 stops in front of the building and drives you directely to the Louvre Museum, the Seine River, the quartier Latin, the Luxembourg Garden.
The Bus no 42 stops 3 minutes away down the street and drives you directly to Concorde, The Champs-Elysées, The Eiffel Tower.
A lot of other bus stops are very close.
Their are available bikes (Velib station) and cars (Autolib station) 1 minute walk from home.
And public parkings lots if necessary at 5 minutes (Parking Saint Georges rue Clauzel or Vinci Park Anvers)
The building is very quiet, and I ask my guests to avoid any noise, namely not to play the piano at all between 7 p.m. and 9 a.m, and to use slippers to walk in the flat ( I provide slippers of different sizes...), to welcome their own friends if any only during the day, and for the same reasons, I prefer not to welcome young children.
Edith had a lovely and very clean apartment. We enjoyed our stay. Though she wasn't able to welcome us personally, she arranged for a friend to let us in, and he was very welcoming. Great all around!
The host made us feel very welcome and had someone meet us at the apartment to welcome us and show us around. We don't speak any french so the woman who met us at the apartment called Edith to talk with us and she had a printed "instruction book" in English at the apartment ready to go. Even with the language barrier we felt welcomed and oriented to the apartment immediately. The listing was 100% accurate, the space was wonderful and perfect for three people, lots of natural light which we loved! The neighborhood was amazing! Plenty of restaurants, cafes, shops, and grocery stores and it was a short walk to multiple metro lines to be able to get anywhere in the city. The neighborhood was great to get away from the packed tourist areas in August as well. We walked to and from the apartment when arriving and departing from Gare du Nord station and it was a short, easy walk.
Edith is a great host. Her replies are always very prompt and informative. The house was neat and clean and in a great location. My friend and I enjoy the two nights we spent in Edith's lovely apartment.
Edith's place was a great base for our explorations of Paris. The apartment was lovely, looking exactly as pictured. We had a very comfortable stay and both Edith and her friend where very helpful and responsive when it came to checking in and out. Would definitely look to stay here again!
Nous avons été bien reçues par Hakima (femme de ménage) et on nous avait laissé des numéros de téléphone pour rejoindre soit Edith ou Hakima au besoin.
Cet appartement est charmant et confortable. Parfait pour les jours que nous y avons passés.
Wir hatten eine schöne Zeit in Edith's Wohnung. Sie ist gemütlich, ruhig gelegen, in einem angenehmen Stadtteil in dem Mann/Frau auch nachts noch durch die Strassen schlendern kann und entspricht der Beschreibung. Die Wohnung ist komplett ausgestattet von Geschirrspüler über Waschmaschine bis hin zum Kaffeeautomat.
Das Appartement befindet sich im 6. Stock unter dem Dach. Der Aufzug dorthin ist winzig - ausreichend für eine Person ohne üppiges Gepäck und Platzangst. Nichtsdestotrotz ließen sich die Treppen hinauf für uns problemlos bewerkstelligen.
Wir können Edith's Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen.
호스트는 친절합니다. 집은 넓고 좋습니다. 여러 지하철 역 사이에 있어 조금만 걸으면 어디든 갈 수 있습니다. 깨끗하고 조리하기도 편합니다. 세탁기도 건조기능까지 있어서 좋았습니다.

About the Host, Edith
I've been living in this flat in central Paris since more than 30 years ago. My 3 children were born there. They went first to school in the same street, rue Rodier, then in the neighborhood. When they became students and were still living with me, I reorganized the rather large flat to get spaces for each of us. Now I welcome guests now and then.
I'm a scientist, travelling a lot, either abroad (I worked in Ivory Coast, in South Africa, in Morocco) or in France, going rather often to the countryside South-West of France to visit my family.
