  • We loved coming home to this cosy Parisian apartment! It looks exactly as it does in the pictures - immaculately clean and beautifully decorated. The owners obviously take great care of their home, and respectfully ask the same from their guests. Yes there are lots of stairs but for us it added to the authentic charm (and made us feel less guilty about consuming all those delicious pastries...). It was walking distance to everything we needed (supermarket, bakery, metro) plus more (Père Lachaise Cemetery, Parc des Buttes Chaumont). Highly recommended if you want to experience life as a local!

  • Quite nice flat with everything you need. The building is quite old with no elevator. It is located in an interesting area of Paris. The 2nd bed is a sofa which was quite horrible to sleep on.

    The owner asks you to clean the apartment at the end which I found annoying.

    Response from Jonathan:

    No surprise for the cleaning, the elevator and the sofa-bed as everything is mentionned in the description of the flat. So please read well before asking for the flat !!
    As for the comfort of the sofa-bed, nobody has ever complain but it's true it's an extra sleeping so it can't be as comfortable as a real bed.
    As for the building, Paris is a city where most of the buildings are old and construct before 1900. That's the charm of the city, a city of history. So once again, no surprise !!

  • This was my first experience with airbnb and it was a successful one. I had quick responses from our host Jonathan, checking in and out went flexible and easy. the apartment was very nice, had everything you'd need, very clean as well, very good value overall.
    the only downside where the stairs after a long day's walking and cycling trough the city, but that's just looking for a downside.
    we had a great stay and would recommend this apartment to anyone.

  • This was our first experience on airbnb and we didn't regret it. My girlfriend and I enjoyed our stay in Jonathan apartment, the place is like in the picture, it is comfortable, the bed is very cozy, the kitchen has all the element you need. In one word perfect. The line 2 is nearby, less than 5min of walking, the neighborhood is nice and safe. We didn't meet Jonathan, his neighbor gave us the key, she was very kind also. Jonathan gave us many important information and helped us a lot. We will be glad to come again in Jonathan apartment. Thanks on everything. :)

  • L'appartement est lumineux, propre et fonctionnel. Il est situé à 5mn d'une station de métro. Il est très bien pour 4 personnes. Le quartier est vivant et pleins d'endroit sympa où manger et boire un verre ! Cependant si vous avez le sommeil léger pensez a prendre de boule quies afin de ne pas avoir de mal à vous endormir car il y a un bar dans la rue en bas. Et attention si vous êtes chargés car il y a quand même 4 étages a monter sans ascenseur. Nous avons passé un très bon week end a Paris dans ce logement !

  • appartement très agréable, très bien agencé.Immeuble calme. Quartier très vivant (impression de village) avec tout à proximité : le bar en face est très sympa, le pain de la boulangerie proche excellent. Nous ne connaissions pas ce quartier, ce fut une agréable découverte.

  • Un appartement très agréable, typiquement parisien et rénové avec goût. Très bien achalandé en livres et dvd de qualité... Un quartier populaire à la fois très animé et très tranquille. On s'y trouve bien : nombreuses terrasses de cafés et restaurants au pied d'une église qui semble bienveillante, tous les commerces à deux pas, le magnifique parc de Belleville à 200 mètres, le parc des Buttes Chaumont à 10 minutes, La rue est tranquille et le double vitrage ajoute à la sérénité. Tout s'est fait sans aucune difficulté et à notre convenance : réservation, renseignements de la part de Jonathan, arrivée, réception des clefs chez la charmante voisine Sarah, départ : aucune fausse note. Le rapport qualité / prix est vraiment très intéressant. Une très belle adresse.

  • Que dire de l'appartement ?
    Bel appartement bien fonctionnel dans un quartier calme,Jonathan amoureux des livres l'on comprend aisément la place d'un livre écrit par Aimé Césaire l'un des pères de la négritude et illustré par Picasso
    Commodités proches à deux pas du parc de Belleville presque méconnu mais à mon sens plus coquet que son voisin immédiat les Buttes de Chaumont
    Paris en Août c'est autre chose de génial,
    Jonathan hôte sympathique qui ouvre grandes ses portes
    Je vous le conseille car c'est efficient

  • Nous sommes très content de notre séjour dans l'appartement de Jonathan. Il est très bien agencé, propre et bien décoré. Et puis, intéressante et énorme collection de bouquins ! Dommage qu'il ait fait trop beau pour rester enfermé.. ;) pas mal de supermarchés autour sinon, et coin assez calme.
