A wonderful welcoming, thoughtful and generous host with a peaceful, artful and confortable home. It was so hard to say goodbye.
Benjamin and his place are totally unique, and for me that was a wonderful thing. He was accommodating, respectful and was always baking something amazing which he kindly shared. If you are looking for a place that's quiet and peaceful and safe, this is wonderful. Just a walk up to the first floor (thankfully) and not very far from the metro station. It is not in the city center, nor is this a hotel set up. Benjamin is an artist who creates from home and is definitely guy when it comes to aesthetics. Form and function versus frilly, delicate and perfectly cleaned/orderly. So it's very much a bohemian environment. If you are demanding it be like a hotel..you will be bummed.
I enjoyed my stay with Benjamin, because of him and ended up writing a soon-to-be published article on his work because it inspired me so much. That said, this is the right place for someone who can get on the vibe of an artist and will enjoy the best pear/walnut freshly baked bread...a taste I hope will never leave my mouth...
It was a total pleasure staying Ben's house. Neighborhood is very clean and safe and metro is right next to his house. Take 10~ 15 mins to go to center of Paris. And as Ben is artist, if you are art like person, this is where you got to stay. Food was good. Wine was good. Everything was good. I'll def. come back next time!!
My stay with Ben was great. He was incredibly nice and prepared a lot of delicious food. He was a great host with lots of interesting and creative ideas and experiences to share. the room was exactly as pictured and the apartment and neighborhood were also perfect. i wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.
I had a great time meeting Ben and staying at his place! He was friendly and welcoming and it was the perfect stay for my first two nights in Paris.
