Nice Parisian apartment near the cafe "Chez Prune" and the "Hotel du Nord". The flat is quiet (located in the court side of the building) and clear, on the 4th floor (no lift). It was totally renovate in october 2010.
In the flat you will have the bed room (double bed), the living room (with a sofa) with parquet floor and chimneys, the kitchen and the bathroom with large shower.
The area is very lively : lots of cafés and restaurant, supermarkets and markets, shoes and clothing stores.
If you like to walk, you have 20 min to go to the Marais (city center) or to the Buttes chaumont park.
The underground station Republique is at 7 minutes from the flat and there you can go everywhere you want.
There is a caretaker in the building to get the keys of the flat, he is opened from 8am to noon and from 4pm to 8pm on Monday to Friday and from 8am to noon on Satuday. It is the only way to get the key because I am away when I rent my flat. It means that if you want to arrive or leave at an other moment it is not possible for me.
The building is very quiet, so when you will come to my flat, thank to respect the quietness of the neighborough.

The apartment is great! Bed is very comfortable, shower is hot, kitchen is well equipped, and all the heaters worked. It's also very charming and personal: so much so that I felt at home immediately!
The location is also very good: the closest Metro station (Jacques Bonsergent) is a 5-minute walk away, but in a pinch you can walk for 15 minutes directly to/from Gare du Nord: I had to do just that to catch an early train out of Paris before the Metro started working.
There are also plenty of bars, restaurants and supermarkets all around. I highly recommend the Le Jemmapes bar right next to the building: the blanquette de veau I had there was unexpectedly delicious!
To wrap this up, I had a great stay at Aline's place, and whenever I go to Paris I'll definitely try and book her apartment again! Thanks Aline!
My wife and I stayed at Aline's flat for almost a week and had a wonderful time. She was prompt with replies via email and made the process very easy. Her flat is very stylish and cozy and located among a scenic waterway that gave my photo happy wife tons of subjects to shoot. It close to the Paris metro and it felt like the rest of Paris could fit in the palm our hand. Great little cafes nearby and bakeries, grocery store, and pharmacies are with in a 5 min walk.
Aline's appartment is in a perfect location, which is vivid but not very touristic. The way to the nearby metro republique is a beautiful start into the day.
The apartment itself is located in a wonderfull typical paris building and is very calm and aswell bright. It is fully equiped and we loved to stay there to gain energy for the day, as we went there to work at a fair.
The communication with Aline is very good and everything worked out just perfectly.
Thank you very much for providing such a nice place and we hope to be back "only" in this apartment soon.
We had a great time at Aline's beautiful flat. Everything was clear and simple, and the location of the apartment is perfect. Very nice place to stay.
The apartment was fantastic in a happening part of Paris. Aline kindly left maps and other useful info. Will defintely try and go back soon. Merci Aline
Loved this place, it is located in my favourite spot to stay in Paris, right opposite Canal Saint Martin. It felt very homely and quiet in the apartment but when you step out onto the street it is very much buzzing and alive.
Be sure to bring your own towels, they are not included and we were not aware of this as first time airbnb users!
The apartment is in a great location and the place was perfect for me and my girl friend and it was very easy to get around Paris from this neighborhood.
We loved the Canal right in front of the place and cafes and restaurant nearby were pretty good as well.
The only reason I am giving 4 stars is that the trash was full and there were empty wine bottles and stuff left around, small inconvenience and also there weren't any bath towels not sure when people rent apartments if they usually bring their own towels. Overall small inconvenience as I said and overall experience was great.
ALine's apartment was amazing and the location was good too. Close to two/three metro stations. The neighbourhood was nice and we had a great time in Paris at her flat.
Aline left us some books and maps of Paris that helped us get around and get to know the neighbourhood.
THe only drawback is the walk up 4 flights of stairs, but I needed that excercise!
The flat was gorgeous and an excellent location just off the canal. We had a great time. Thanks Aline!
Beautiful place, all the amenities you could need, great location & thoughtful host! I cannot recommend it enough!
