Studio well equipped, on the 7th and last floor of a beautiful building with elevator (elevator till the 6th floor), independent kitchen, bathroom and main room with TV and DVD and great Paris' roofs view!
Located on rue Lafayette, very close to the métro station Louis Blanc (200m), and 5/7mn walking from Gare du Nord (train from Charles de Gaulle airport).
Many food stores and restaurants around, mainly on rue du Faubourg Saint Martin. You can also have a nice walk along the Canal Saint Martin which is pedestrian on Sundays. You also have the Parc des Buttes Chaumont (10/12mn walking distance) which is an old park from the early 1900's, very charming and quiet, if you want to relax for a while.
3 nights minimum.
Philippe and his flat were both really nice. He was so flexible and helpful. The flat was at great location since we arrived by train. It was also very well equiped and clean. Thanks again for hosting us!
2 of us stayed in the apartment for 4 nights in July 2013. It was comfortable and clean. The accommodation is basic but good value for money and we were only in Paris for a short stay so our main use of the apartment was for sleeping as we were out the whole day sight-seeing. The apartment worked out really well for us as we were a group of 9 and the other 7 members of the group had a place just a few minutes up the road so we could easily meet up in the mornings. The metro was close (about 3 minutes walk) which made getting around Paris easier and Gare Due Nord is also very close (about a 10-15min walk) which was great as we arrived via the Eurostar. Philippe's mum met us and gave us an orientation of the apartment. She spoke very little English but she was very pleasant and we managed to communicate ok. Having a kitchen & washing machine was handy.
The studio was perfect for our week in Paris ! Clean, well situated, near the train/metro stations, comfortable, with all the necessary equipment. The elevator, that seems to come directly from an old movie, is an experience !
Philippe was very helpful, he answered all my questions quickly and was easy to reach during our stay. We had the chance to meet his mother, we had a great conversation, the perfect way to end our visit in this charming studio ! Thank you for everything !
Everything excellent! it is as comfortable as you are at home, you have everything you need to have a good stay in Paris.
Philipp is a polite and helpful host.
The apartment is in a accesible area of Paris, it is excelent to move by metro or train. Really easy to arrive from the airport or to move around the city.
The best: "it is really a privacy place", you are in a independent apartment.
Of course, i ´ll contact to Philippe again when i´ll go to Paris.
Flat was at a great location like other reviewers have said. Well equipped and clean. Philippe was very flexible and helpful.
Our stay was wonderful. We really enjoyed the time and Philippe was extremely nice. There was everything we needed in the studio and it was clean. Thanks a lot again!
Philippe was wonderful to deal with from start to finish. The apartment was just as described in the listing. Very close and convenient to Gare du Nord station if you are arriving or leaving Paris from there. Also very close to Metro station and bus stop. The beautiful canals of Paris are a nice walk located near the apartment. I recommend Philippe's apartment to anyone wanting to experience Paris as a local.
