Hello and welcome on my profil.
after fall, now 2 weeks in april, in benoit's place. everything was as nice and clean as we had it last october. the new discovery was the wonderful italien food in the "retro bottega" in the same building. thank you benoit.
Benoit's apartment was (email hidden)ly area of Paris - lots of bistros, bars and lovely public spaces. Perfect base for taking off on foot and really seeing a lot of the city. The apartment itself is charmingly furnished, and well appointed. Benoit was a perfect host, answering queries in a prompt and reassuring manner. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him or his place.
Benoits place is comfortable, quiet and well-located. We had a good stay there.
We couldn't be more pleased with Benoit's apartment. Really beautiful décor, well-equipped, clean & tidy with plenty of space (there were four of us staying) and in the 11th district, which is one of the best areas in Paris to stay (in my opinion!). The apartment is in a convenient location close to 3 different metro stations with good connections and plenty of shops/eateries/cafes round the corner - it was nice and quiet so you can get a good night's sleep, yet right by the hustle and bustle of Paris. Benoit himself was very kind, helpful, and made sure we were happy with everything at all times - we felt very at home and enjoyed our stay there!
Benoit's apartment is lovely and very spacious, with a large bathroom and very well equipped kitchen. We were very close to the metro station, bakeries and the supermarket, as well as restaurants. A great base for our time in Paris - thanks Benoit!
wonderful apartment. clean, quiet, tastefully decorated, lots of books, fully equipped kitchen, fast wifi, just everything to make you feel invitingly comfortable. bar and a small restaurant are in the same house. metro, bus stop, open and covered market, bakeries, cheese store, you name it, all in walking distance. highly recommended!
thank you benoît for your confidence. we will be back.

The apartment was well prepared and Benoit was extremely helpful and accommodating. The location is great for exploring the market at the Place d'Aligre and the vibrate 11th is at your door.
We stayed in Benoit’s apartment for a week in September 2012 and had a great time. The apartment is large (by Paris standards), clean and tidy – the photos give a very accurate impression of the place. Organising to meet Benoit was easy and he was very helpful with local restaurant recommendations etc.
The area is very authentic, not touristy. There are lots of good restaurants and the metro is a 3 minute walk.
I would definitely recommend Benoit’s apartment as a place to stay in Paris.
great place - very French!
really liked the bathroom.
Benoit is a wonderful host! His place is tastefully decorated and he was helpful and always so responsive with replies, even when he was very busy with work. Upon checkout I accidentally left my suitcase in his apartment after leaving the keys on the table. He was very quick to help and sent a taxi with the keys to me, so that we made our next flIght just in time!!
Just so you know exactly what you are getting yourself into, here is a breakdown. The good - 1 the design-centric furnishings, you can tell he has taste 2 the space, it's rare for Paris 3 real Parisian feel, none of that hotel same-same look and feel 4 his goldfish in the blender called 'Milkshake' and his CD player in the bathroom, super simple and cool.
The not as awesome - creaking floorboards, was an issue fo us as my parents flew from Australia, and were up at night 2 lack of silence in Paris - a general Paris comment. If you want to stay centrally, then be prepared to put up with a few scooters scattered at night. My dad is a light sleeper so was slightly of an issue, but generally fine for me.
Overall the host has a wonderful heart, his place cannot feel more Parisian, and for its size; these are the reasons why you should stay here. L
I am very happy and feel lucky to have Benoit and his friends to be my first clients from Airbnb! You guys are very clean and respectful tenants! My apartment looked almost as neat as before! As a mature Airbnb user, Benoit shared his experience with me about using this website as well, very useful! Thanks you very much!
Benoit has stayed at my place twice.....and is more than welcome anytime. He has a very positive vibe....and I am looking forward to visit his flat too in Paris!
Benoit came for a last minute weekend break in London to visit a friend and was very pleasant, and a fun open person...respectful and communicative. Left my flat spotlessly tidy . would have been nice to have had the chance to chat further as I sensed a fun creative spirit...but hey hopefully next time!
Benoit and his girlfriend were very nice guests! Communication was quick and easy. They left the place spotless. I would welcome them back anytime.
Benoit is one of my best friends ! Not only is he a lovely person but his apartment is very cute too.
Charmfull flat, located in a very convenient area (tube, bus, taxis...). Next to the old Paris (le Marais) where you can find a mixture of old buildings and trendy shops, you will enjoy shopping fresh food to the local market just down the flat, and cook it thanks to recipe given by locals. Benoit is also very helpful in indicating very nice hidden spots, and describing typical Parisian habits and lifestyle. He is the best !
