Nice and quiet neighborhood, with everything you can wish for nearby for a true Parisian stay : very close to the Canal St-Martin (as seen in the movie Amelie) where you can find great restaurants and bars, very practical location thanks to all the near subway stations, theaters, concert halls, museums...

If you arrive during a weekday, I'm usually working, so I'm mostly available after 7.30pm.

Very convenient to discover Paris !

Feel free to contact me for further details !

PS : It's the apartment I usually live in, it's not as empty and lifeless as a place dedicated to (website hidden)2 : If you're more than two, I have an inflatable bed.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • O apartamento é silencioso e tem tudo o que você vai precisar para ficar uns dias em Paris. A entrega das chaves foi tranquila e o Guillaume é bem receptivo.

  • Flat. The flat isn't big but very well decorated and clean. Giving a look at Guillaume's book shelf gives you the feeling that you've gotten to the right place – from comic books to Marx. Personally, I was struck by the French version of Strugatsky's. Large windows at the patio, with neighbors looking living their routine lives (one of them even was using the walls of the neighbors as a screen for his projector at night) add to the overall atmosphere.

    Staying at this place actually gives you a Paris experience.

    Location. Guillaume's flat is located in a very nice neighborhood, right next to Canal St.Martin – every evening we would see hundreds of young Parisians sitting at the banks of the canal socializing, drinking wine, and having genuine fun – such a temptation to dive in! Small bars, local shops, creperies and other places of hostronomic interest are all around the place.

    Overall – enjoyed it very much!

  • Guillaume is a great host with a wonderful apartment right near Canal St. Martin. His girlfriend, who showed us in, was also very welcoming and helpful. My boyfriend and I were really happy to stay there: the neighborhood is excellent for restaurants and nightlife, and the apartment itself is bright and comfortable. It was perfect for us, and we would definitely stay there again!

  • Fantastic - Guillame was a great host.

    His flat is characterful and clean - and in our favourite area of Paris. Just 15-20 minutes walk to Gare du Nord for those taking Eurostar.

    I'd highly recommend the flat (as long as you're OK with stairs!) and wouldn't hesitate to book again.

  • Even if we didn't use the apartment properly, we felt very comfortable there. It is very nicely decorated and clean. Beautiful large windows, bright. The location is fantastic. In the immediate vicinity there are great cafés and restaurants. And of course the canal is quiet nice... - well, when the weather is good. ;)

    Guillaume was a very hassle-free host, who was always available when we called or send a message and helpful. We have felt very comfortable. Thanks again!

  • Guillaume was a great host! He was well in contact with us before and during our stay. The location is great (email hidden)ly neighborhood. It was nice of Guillaume to give us suggestions on what to do in the Canal St. Martin neighborhood. The bed was very comfortable. I would stay again and recommend this listing.

  • All was simply perfect. Guillaume is a very nice and responsible host and his flat is lovely.

  • We had a very nice stay in paris. As Guillaume had to work , his girlfriend introduced us in the apartment. It is quiet, in a nice building and (email hidden)ly neighbourhood, with lots of restaurants and little shops. The place looked freshly painted , a bit dusty and is appropriate for 2 persons. The couch in the livingroom is not suitable for sleeping.
    We loved the musicinstallation , a pity we couldn't make a nice coffee.
    Allthough we didn't see Guillaume, he allways answered our messages in a short term. Thank you!

  • The host was very nice and kind and friendly and though we've messed up a lot with the flight Guillaume helped us a lot and was really-really nice!
    As the others have mentioned already-yeah, the apartment was on a rather Bachelor-pad side of cleanliness, but on the other hand it was so cozy and full of great books and table games and the bed was so amazingly comfortable, that we have even hardly noticed it :)
    Guillaume provided us with towels, bed sheets and was very quick with helping us to remember the door passwords/etc. He'd even put the guide book about Paris on the shelf for us, oh, that was so sweet!
    Maybe there was a bit cold in the apartment when we arrived, but there were the radiators in the rooms so it took just several hours to make it warm again.
    We also enjoyed the area very much, a very beautiful yard in front of the house, only 10 minutes from the metro, very french wooden stairs in the house-we really had the feeling we lived there as a true Paris couple:)
    Thank you very much, Guillaime! We had a wonderful stay in Paris thanks to you!

I'm a friendly guy who enjoys travelling, discovering new cultures and new people. Off the beaten tracks whenever it's possible, but I also enjoy a fancy restaurant ! If I can, I'll gladly point you to some great less-known places in Paris.
