I'm a Graphic Designer based in Paris.
I tarvelled with my boyfriend, and we had a nice time in Paris, even though the weather was not quite good. It was raining and windy, but the city is marvelous. We liked Sophie's place as well. The flat itself is nice, clean and comfortable, exactly what you see on the pictures. But, if you are a new couple I don't suggest this place, because the door between the bathroom and the rest of the flat is very decorative but keeps hardly any noise and smell, which can be very disapponting for those on a first romantic trip :( apart from this there is no problem with the flat at all, you really can feel at home in it. Of course you have to take into considartion that it's on the 4th floor and the staircase is quite wonky, but it is not surprising in Paris. The location is great, we could reach easily and quick everything and there are nice bakeries and shops in a few steps. And the canal is beautiful :) Sophie was helpful, and very understanding when we had to change the date due to an accident happend to me. She was a good host.
A lovely place in a great location that was perfect for a traveling pair. Very walkable to lots of cafes, restaurants, bakeries and the Canal, and convenient to the metro for getting around to other areas of interest. Thank you!
Good place, lack of flexibility was disappointing but definitely s good value overall
We stayed at Sophie's apartment for a week and we felt very comfortable. The area is quiet, close to metro, varius shops and restaurants (pizza in the Flamingo was really good :)). Sophie provided us with all the information about the appartment and was very helpful on the day of arrival. If I were to go to Paris again, I would stay in the same place :) Thanks, Sylwester
Sophie was very responsible with my time and worked hard to talk to me. Very good to deal with it. I highly recommend it
We had a good stay at Sophie's place. Check in and out were made very easy and she emailed an awesome, thorough PDF file with all the info about the location, getting into the apartment, and good places to eat around the area. Her place is located in a prime area of Paris with good access to the Metro station. The apartment is small, old, and very simple , but with all the basic amenities including wifi. The building the apartment is in is very old and in need of a remodel, so just know this going in, but the apartment itself was good for our trip and needs! Thanks for hosting us Sophie, we loved Paris and hope to return!
Non abbiamo avuto modo di conoscere Sophie, ma il soggiorno è stato perfetto. Sophie ci ha dato tutte le informazioni necessarie e tutto ha ben funzionato. L'appartamento è piccolo ma ha tutto quel che serve ed è molto luminoso. Situato vicino alla metropolitana e a 2 passi dal Canal St Martin. Le parti comuni dell'edificio sono molto trascurate, ma forse questo le rende tipiche.
The pros : the flat is well connected to any part of Paris, in a lively district with many shops. The flat is nice and cosy, easy to live in and full of light. Sophie did think of evreything : tea, seasonings, hairdryer are available, and that's not so frequent!
One disadvantage; youl'have to be in a good shape to climb up the four stairs (with no elevator) and on the bed on the mezzanine floor ( but there is also a convertible one on the ground floor)
Fantastic, cozy apartment in a great location. We had a great time, and Sophie made our stay very convenient.
Overall: Solidly adequate apartment for the price
Host: Sophie was fantastic and responsive but we really didn't need much help from her. She gave a few great restaurant and bakery recommendations on a PDF she has created over time.
Location: a little gritty but fine -- about halfway between Gare de L'Est and Republique. Non-touristy area. Easy to get around Paris because of proximity to Jacque Bonsargent metro and a Velib' bikeshare station.
Oh, beware that it's on the 4th floor in an old building.
Apt: Nice though somewhat Spartan. It could be a little more furnished (note: no iron, no coffee maker/filter holder, no wine bottle opener -- though Sophie was super-responsive about the latter issue when I emailed her about it). The lofted bed was fine but definitely not the cushiest bed I've slept in. Didn't try the pull out sofa/futon bc I wanted the sitting space but the mattress on that looked better. It doesn't feel like a home; it feels like a second, rental apt. However, as I said, overall it was fantastic and perfect for what we were looking for. Very nice and clean.
Overall, it was fantastic! Thanks, Sophie. :)
Sophie und Nicolas sind beide sehr symphatisch,
wenn wir Sophie und Nicolas gelegentlich nicht gesehen hätten,
würden wir denken, Sie waren nicht im Apartment.
Das Apartment war Tip Top, sauber und aufgeräumt, toll!
Vielen Dank für das Kommen und bis Bald mal wieder.....
