The ideal place for a couple on holiday!
Comfortable and bright flat, in an ideal location, offering a typically parisian vue over the roofs.
I have been living many years in this one room flat, which became pretty and nicely arranged, with a fitted kitchen and bathroom recently refurbished. It's the perfect love-nest for a couple! The windows overlooking a courtyard make the nights very quiet.
Please contact me if you have any questions !
Interaction with Guests
Most of the time I'm here to welcome the guests, and it's a great pleasure!
The area is lively and busy, with all the design and fashion shops. You will find a supermarket at the foot of the building, and many bars and restaurants nearby to make your stay easy and exciting ! Must-see places such as Notre Dame or Centre pompidou are 5 minutes-walk from there.
You can reach many transports :
- the closest is Hotel de Ville, 2 minutes-walk (metro 1 and 11)
- one station from Châtelet (metro 1, 11, 4, 7, suburban train RER A, B – airport CDG )
- many buses : lines 67, 69, 76 and 96 can take you to places like Pigalle, Eiffel tower, Le Louvre or St Germain. They are my favorite way of enjoying the city !
I will appreciate the care and respect of the flat!
Instruction for use will be left to the travellers.
- for smockers, please air the flat adequately
- no parties
Galatée's appartment is a great place to stay with everything you need, a beautiful view and a great location. I will clearly recommend Galatée's appartment to others.
I am so grateful for my time in Galatée's space. Her flat is warm and welcoming. The view opens across the rooftops of Paris, and the sun gently enters and teases one into the day. (Though curtains exist for those who want to block out the sun.) Galatée's attention to detail makes each aspect of her space inviting. I had everything I needed, and I was able to fully relax into her space. In addition, the location truly is ideal. At seven months pregnant, I was easily able to walk everywhere from her doorstep-- the market is just below her place, Notre Dame is minutes away, wonderful cafes, the Latin Quarter, the Louvre, and more. I felt that I was in a beautiful center of the hub. One can easily enjoy spending days exploring and enjoying her neighborhood, and one can easily access most major sites in Paris.
Traveling on my own, I appreciated the security of the building (two sets of codes-- one to enter the building and then another for her part of the building,) as well as the safety of the neighborhood. My one concern had been the stairs (given my stage of pregnancy.) Galatée generously met me to help me with my bags upon arrival and departure. Once there, the location of the flat was perfect. The stairwell is a beautiful feature in and of itself, and I felt grateful to have the view from her perch.
As a host, Galatée's generosity, accessibility and clear communication made all the difference to me. I had the room to enjoy space and time, but also the clear trust that I could reach her if I needed her. As a place, the care and attention to detail combined with the location made this a perfect choice for my time in Paris. I'm so grateful to Galatée for opening her world so that I might explore Paris from such a lovely perch. I highly recommend one staying at her place!
Galatee's apartment is in a great location. So close to many attractions such as the Louvre and Notre Dame. There are so many great restaurants in the area. It is also very convenient to have the market right down stairs. She keeps her apartment very clean. It was warm and cozy. We loved staying at her place.
Everything was just perfect also in our second stay in Galatée's apartment. Please refer to my last review (as the gap between our 2 stays was only 1 week).
The apartment is exactly as the listing describes - a cosy place in the heart of Paris. It is located near Hotel de Ville in a district that is packed with restaurants, shops, pubs, boulangeries etc. On the other hand the flat was very quiet, the windows are facing to backyard of the building so the hustle and bustle of the streets does not reach the room. If you are doing the sightseeing, this place is perfect - Hotel de Ville, Notre Dame, Pompidou Centre, Seine river are all just minutes away and to other places you can take the metro or bus (both stops couple of minutes from the door).
We were really happy with our choice from the first moments. Galatee is very welcoming host and helped us with all the questions very quickly. The apartment itself was very clean and homely, having all the amenities you could need during your stay. Walking to the 5th floor was a bit of an effort but that was actually a good exercise after all the visits to the boulangerie on the corner :)
It was my first Airbnb experience and everything worked like clockwork. So all in all I would definitely recommend Galatée's apartment as a place to stay in Paris. When we go back to Paris, her apartment would be my first choice for lodging again.
Galatée was amazing! She was waiting for us at the flat when we arrived and made everything smooth and simple for our stay. The location was perfect and right in the heart of Paris, which made it easy to get everywhere in the city. The flat is very cute, clean and modern and is the perfect size for two people. I would definitely stay at Galatée's flat again!
The apartment was just as cosy as the pictures showed. When me and my girlfriend came to the apartment Galatée met us up in person and gave us a warm welcome. The neighberhood is very, very nice with lots of great cafés, bars and restaurants. We would warmly recommend Galatées apartment.
