Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • The communication with Francois was great and he was a very helpful
    host. Although me and my friends we didn't meet him but the check in and check out went well. Location is perfect however there is no lift to the 4th floor and it would be really helpful if there was a hair dryer to use and few things needed to be fixed around the apartment like the handle of the bedroom door besides that this is a nice place to stay for going out to see Paris all day long.

    Hey Mark, thanks for your comments, that help me improve the experience. The door lock was fixed, and yes, the cleaning lady is coming every Tuesday.

  • Great place, great host. Francois-Ghislain's apartment is ideally located and spacious. I totally recommend it. No noise and very quiet apartment, though the area is surrounded by great restaurants and concept stores.

  • François apartment is great! The flat is well equipped and It's located on a really nice neighborhood full of restaurants and a block away of the "Marche des Enfants Rouges".
    I would definitely recommend it.

  • Appartement chaleureux et très calme, dans un quartier très vivant, et à une distance idéale du centre pour une belle balade à pied dans le Marais !
    Allez prendre votre petit déjeuner au Café Charlot, à 2 minutes à pied !

    Very calm and welcoming flat in a nice area, with lots of restaurants and bars (go to Café Charlot for breakfast !)

  • François is the best host that we could have in Paris. His place is amazing and really well decorated with lots and cool pieces of art. More than that, his place is located in the best area in Paris surrounded by very nice restaurants, stores and art gallery. At the day he gave us the key, he listed alll the right places to go. We followed the tips and had the best experience ever. I know that is becoming reduncdant, but everything was so perfect that we have to be it. Thanks François for being such a great host, Paris won't be the same if we hadn't met you!

  • The stay was amazing!
    The apartment was not only clean but also well decorated and very cosy. You feel at home instantly and the building is charming and quiet. Kitchen is very well equipped. Perfect for a romantic week in the Marais.
    The host gave me useful tips so that I could enjoy this very trendy neighbourhood. The "marché des enfants rouges" which is one block away, Nanashi, the art galleries and Centre Commercial are worth seeing.
    I highly recommend this apartment. Everything ran smoothly and I even got complimentary Nespresso.
    Go for it!

  • The apartment is simply great: spacious, decorated with taste and fully equipped.
    Moreover, it is located just next to "le Marché des Enfants Rouges", one of the trendiest places in Paris nowadays.
    Finally, the host is very easy to deal with. Booking and getting the keys was fast, easy and painless.
    An excellent deal for sure. I can recommend it to anyone.
