Other Things to Note
An excellent quality / price ratio.
Polite, discreet and respectful
Staying at Maguy's place was everything we hoped for. She is a terrific host: friendly and helpful, yet respecting her guests' privacy. The room and the appartment were exactly as described. As we slept at the back of the builiding, there was no street noise. The neighbourhood was an extra asset: a quiet street, but many cafés, restaurants and shops at walking distance.
We will definitely go back! (if she'll have us ;-) ).
Ma soeur et mon beau-frère, venus de Singapour, sont restés 5 nuits chez Maguy. La chambre est de bonnes dimensions, l'appartement tranquille. Maguy est très sympathique, avenante. Elle se souciait toujours de leur bien-être. Le quartier est bien, très pratique. Beaucoup de bons restaurants aux alentours. Les stations de métro sont tout près. Ils ont passé un très bon séjour chez Maguy.
Good, clean and convenient apartment, decent location about 3 min from metro and several restaurants nearby but only Bastille within walking distance. Simple but OK breakfast (baguette w jam, powder coffee and juice). Maggy is very friendly and helpful about your plans in Paris.
Maguy is excellent host. We book the place 1 day before actual stay and she approved it.
She waited for us in apartment, showed us around. Gave us directions for next day, recommended us must-see places, borrowed us books about Paris.
Bedroom was great - private and clean. Breakfast was very good.
I highly recommend you to stay in this apartment!
P.S. I'm not smoker but the smoking didn't disturb our stay. Our room had great ventilation with fresh air and was just perfect!
Accueil charmant, la chambre est telle que décrite, grande et confortable. Le quartier est très bien desservi et le petit déjeuner appréciable. Nous recommandons.
We had a very pleasant stay. The room was spacious. Even when we can't find the heating anywhere, the room was warm enough for us. I do wonder how the room could stay so cosy. The host is prepared for tourist like us and even left books and leaflets on the dining table for our reference. She prepared simple breakfast for guests too which we were very grateful for.
Clear instructions were given on the first day. With such wonderful accommodation, our Paris trip had been the most pleasant one.
J'ai été très bien reçu par Maguy , qui est un très bon mélange de discrétion et de coutoisie.

I am a fifty-six year old woman whose daughter has just left to go off to London. With my empty nest, I have decided to welcome travelers. I know and love Paris dearly. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of the city with my guests so that they have the best visit possible.
