Please respect my apartment as if it was yours !
Sonia's apartment is tastefully decorated, spacious, comfortable, very clean, warm, light and airy with a great view. Sonia was helpful and responsive. The location is amazing, about 5-10 minutes walk from Gare du Nord.
Just a few things which didn't bother me but you may want to be aware of:
- the flat is six floors up, with no lift (quite normal for Paris and means you have a lovely view, but hard work with a suitcase!)
- there is no microwave
- the toilet flush got a bit stuck at one point, but after I jiggled the plastic mechanism around a bit it worked fine.
Thanks Sonia for a lovely stay!
I really felt at home during my stay at Sonia's place. The view is amazing and I loved my little home in Paris. I hope I can come and stay next time I'm in Paris, I'd love to come back!
I believe my second visit to Paris was my best yet, thanks to Sonia's lovely apartment in the middle of a well-connected and up-and-coming neighborhood of the 10e. The climb up the six flights of stairs aren't for the faint of heart, but the view of the Eiffel Tower is worthy every breath. Sonia welcomed us with carrot cake, and even with a toddler and my partner, we felt the apartment was spacious and comfortable. I would recommend this room to anyone coming to Paris for the first or tenth stay, you won't be disappointed!
Sonia was a lovely host even that we didn't meet personally each other. She arranged everything for our stay and provided us with useful information about the city, neighborhood and her apartment.
Sonia was absolutely professional, prompt, and delightful. As our schedule had some slight flexes, she was extremely accommodating, and even went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable.
The flat was incredible. A beautiful respite atop a lofty flight of stairs with a view that makes the climb more than worth it. The flat had everything that we could have ever needed, including wifi, multiple maps of the city and metro, and beautiful art work. Some may find the bathroom small, but we came to the conclusion that it was very charming.
We sincerely hope that every AirBnB host is as professional and accommodating as Sonia is.
Sonia's apartment is a great base to explore Paris from. It's a 3 minute walk to Gare de l'Est metro station so you can get anywhere in Paris centre easy. In addition, a 10 minute walk gets you to Gare du Nord station for airport connections.
The apartment is spacious and clean. It's also quiet which is a surprise after you've seen how busy the street below is. And the view of the Eiffel Tower - it isn't done justice by the listing's photos! It's particularly impressive at night.
Sonia gave us a warm welcome and provided us with lots of useful information.
The apartment was exactly as described and very enjoyable to stay in. Good location for travelling around the city. Sonia was very helpful and welcoming. We especially enjoyed the tips on restaurants and bars from Sonia and other previous guests. Recommended.
