This little home was comfortable, bright, clean, and warm. Lo was very accomodating of our timing when we arrived and when we left. She responded to messages reasonably fast. The guides she had to Paris were extremely helpful. The metro was very easy to get to, there were three stops within easy walking distance. This was the perfect place for my husband and I to spend our honeymoon! Thanks again for a great stay, Lo.
Lo was a thoughtful, responsive, and generous host. My girlfriend and I had a great time staying in this lovely, very clean, and homey apartment. We would definitely stay there again if we have a chance to go back to Paris!
Had a very enjoyable stay at Lo's apartment. It really is in a charming location away in a relaxing quiet part of Paris. The bed was always very comfortable, guaranteeing good sleep. The restroom can be a bit tight. Nevertheless, it was a very comfortable and memorable experience.
Dear Alvin, i am quite disappointed by your comment. You are not the first one since some months, and I think we are loosing the spirit of airbnb, as a community, going in a commercial spirit instead. Airbnb is not a hotel service, but a community of travellers. The price is much lower than a hotel, with a much bigger place, a kitche, and most important the guidebook of the host, as tips shared with friends. and as a host I do as if I was the guest coming, trying to offer everything to begin a stay, from olive oil to shampoo, 1 roll of toilet paper, 2 towels, juice etc... This is my own appart, and I am working as anyone beside welcoming foreigners as friends of friends. I clean, welcome and when I have enough time, buy some fresh bread or other things appreciated. When not, Instead of requesting a second roll of toilet paper, you could have appreciate that I waited for you hours for your check in, as you came hours after the time arranged between us, and find a solution for you to come in even super late. Some guests are waiting for hotel services, honestly,why not just booking there ? I like welcoming people from the world, and I try my best to figure out how to make it easier for them. I could expect the guests just to think a little of that
Apartamento muito charmoso, combina com uma visita a Paris. O bairro é um refúgio do agito da cidade, muito tranquilo e familiar. A anfitriã e antigos hóspedes deixaram disponível muitas informações e dicas sobre a região num livrinho, não deixe de lê-lo. Caso seja alérgico talvez este apartamento não seja pra você, uma vez que ele tem carpet no quarto e na sala, muitas cortinas de pano, travesseiros...
My stay at 12 Rue de la Liberte was wonderful. Lo was very hospitable and helpful. I very much appreciated the fresh bread and other essentials left by Lo so I had something before I could get to the supermarket. The apartment was just as described.
It was a very charming neighborhood close to a beautiful park. I'd recommend this apartment as a place to stay to see what a typical Parisian neighborhood is like. I particularly enjoyed watching the men playing petanque in the park. Just a short walk from the metro stop.
It was perfect, we wanted to feel what it was like to live as Parisians and we can feel it for a week. Quiet neighborhood, very close to subway and a market that has the will to bring all for such a wonderful home.
The apartment is great for a couple, beautiful and romantic. Practical and with a view breathtaking. The night we drank a wine listening to French music watching the scenery out the window.
I have nothing to complain, Lo was very helpful and gave us all a hand when I needed to ask questions about taxi she helped me find a place.
I would like to have stayed longer.
Thanks for the stay, Lo !!!!
Bon accueil téléphonique de la part de la propriétaire. Bon séjour réalisé dans ce lieu. Ce logement est bien situé à proximité de 2 stations de métro. Un endroit fait pour passer un week-end .
Merci pour votre accueil.
