He gave me clear information how to get to his house from the airport and gave me warm welcome.
The first impression of the house was just like the picture, clean and tidy.
I sent total 8 nights at his house. During my stay, I could access all facilities that I wanted to use and he totally respected my privacy.
I choose the best thing of his house is the easy accessibility. If you want to get to tourist spots such as Eiffel tower, Art museums, or somewhere, just take a bus or metro and it would take within 20 minutes. Moreover, the stations are just nearby. Even though this was my first travel to Paris, I had no troubles to get everywhere I wanted to go.
Additionally, there are good grocery store and market within walking distance. The neighborhood is also safe.
If I have another chance to visit Paris, I would not hesitate to choose his place again.
Excellent apartment! Francis was welcoming and provided many essentials for us. He was so helpful with restaurants, safety, and transportation.
Francis was very welcoming and gave us clear instructions on how to enter his place. It was exactly as described and had everything we needed - from travel adapters to towels and some refreshments as well. We also had complete access to a kitchen with all the facilities we required. It's a very safe neighbourhood with easy access to Voltaire (s a simple and safe place to stay to see all the sites in Paris - would highly recommend it for a practical-minded traveller, both short-term and longer stay.
Francis was very nice. He gave us a lot of help and always answered our needs. And he talked with us everyday! It's not very common so we found that very warming and welcoming. The location was convenient and the room was clean and comfortable.
We weren't able to meet Francis since our flight got delayed and he had work engagements the following days, but he arranged for someone to welcome us when we arrived. His place is very accessible and close to the metro. The whole house is spotless. His kitchen has everything you need if ever you plan to eat in. He had welcome drinks waiting for us when we got to his place. He has a wonderful collection of music CDs as well. The room is nice and well-lit. Would definitely recommend his place. Hopefully we get to meet you next time, Francis!
Heerlijk appartement, met openslaande deuren naar rustige binnenplaats. Fijne douche en gedeelde keuken en woonkamer.
Het voelde alsof we er zelf woonde, Francis is bijna niet "merkbaar" aanwezig. Behulpzaam en erg vriendelijk, dat is Francis!
