I did not get a chance to meet Betty and Silvia at the time of stay but the concierge was super friendly and was able to answer any immediate questions. Even though my train was late she was very understanding. The hosts were still in communication through out so you never felt you were on your own. The unit itself was clean, comfortable and well situated in Pigalle and a few blocks from Montmartre.
It is right off the Pigalle station on the blue line so it was quick and easy to get around the city. The neighbourhood is super cool with tons of places to eat, drink and to browse. I miss Paris already and the apartment was a big part of the charm of the city.
Betty and Silvia were great hosts, responded very quickly to emails, told me everything I needed to know on arrival and were flexible with checking out. They mentioned that the flat might have some noise since it's in Pigalle, but it was fine, there was some music from the neighbours opposite one evening but I just shut the window and it completely blocked it. You'd get that anywhere.
It's a perfect place for one, might be a squeeze in the bathroom for a couple for a length of time.
I'd definitely recommend staying here, great location for getting around Paris, very close to the metro. It's also safe since its in a gated courtyard.
As scheduled, Silvia met us on arrival. The apartment was as described. The location was within a two minute walk to the metro, close to Sacre Coeur. While the neighbourhood is a little run down, it was a great value.
Highly recommendable to stay at Betty & Silvia's place. The flat is quite small, but all ammenities are present. The flat was clean and nicely furnished.
Betty was very antentive to all our questions and provided very good information on transports and the neighbourhood upon arrival.
Last but not least, the Montmarte nieghbourhood is perfect and requires no further (website hidden): Go to Rue de Martyrs for the best bakery products in Paris!
L'appartement est très propre et fonctionnel, et Betty et Sylvia ont été de très bons hôtes. Je vous recommande cette adresse !
This was really great! Such a cozy cute place for 2! Instructions on how to get to the place were detailed and response time was quick. Silvia met us when we arrived to explain everything which was very helpful and thoughtful of her! the food recommendations were very good and made this experience even better than I could have imagined. This apartment is in a great location as well! Thank you for a very pleasant stay in Paris!!
We were very happy with the flat, Betty & Silvia.
It's a small apartment with 3 flights of stairs but spotlessly clean & had everything we needed.
The neighbourhood is fun & funky with a number of good restaurants & bakers just minutes away. The Paris Metro is superb but we like walking & reached the Musee D'Orsay & the Louvre in 30/40 minutes... the Metro will get you to most places in Paris in much less time & the Pigalle Metro stop is only 200 metres from the flat. Rue des Martyrs is buzzy, there was a market on Sunday.
Like the the dinner tables at the restaurants the flat is compact & you need a certain agility to get in & out of the shower, but it worked well & so all in all the flat was a great base from which to explore the many fabulous sights, sounds & experiences of Paris.
So provided you're fit & not too fat (to get in the shower) we'd absolutely recommend this apartment.

About the Host, Betty & Silvia
I am Betty, I am mostly French but a bit English too. I was born in Paris, which I left for a while - lived in London for 17 years - to eventually come back to it, because there is nothing like it!
I currently teach both French and English as foreign languages, and also write fiction.
Silvia is 100% Italian. She is a photographer and also teaches Italian and photography to kids and adults.
We both look forward to meeting new guests through Airbnb.
Betty and Silvia.
