Barbara met me at the door of the building and very, very kindly helped me carry my bags to the 3rd floor flat. She made me feel right at home in her cozy, airy apartment. She had all types of kitchen staples for her guests to use, such as tea, pasta, spices, etc. The building is a lovely old stone place, and of course Ile St Louis is one of the prettiest places in Paris. Its a perfect location right between the best parts of the Right and Left Banks, and just next door to Notre Dame. There are shops nearby for food or gifts, many many restaurants on the island (I recommend Tavern du Nil, whose owner is also a very kind, helpful person). Barbara is a lovely person, and very interesting to talk with. I had a marvelous time at her flat, and recommend her place most highly!
If you really want to live some days as a local person in Paris then rent this apartment. It is perfect to explore the heart of Paris. Bakeries, nice restaurants, vine shops, museums. The location offers magnificant insights in everything. Everything is reachable by a short walk. Barbara is a great host. She is very helpful. She gave us excellent recommendations for Art exhibitions, Restaurants etc. Barbara, thank you so much!
The flat was nice as I expected from the pictures. The location cannot be better than these one!!! Living there is amazing.
Barbara was a lovely person to meet, she speak fluently italian with me and have a very interesting talk, I hope to continue someday.
She left some food for us, "pasta" as I was coming from Italy ;-) and we could also have a good coffee made in a "bialetti" style coffee machine. What a surprise!
She was also very flexible with our checkout time.
Wifi works very well. Also heating works well.
She was very kind to help us carry our luggage through the stairs.
She also have orchids growing in her flat! Such beautiful flowers were for me another thing reflecting her kindness and her talent for taking care of them.
I strongly recommend her flat, I don't believe you will find anything better, considering the perfect and beautiful location and the quality of the host.
We spent a very happy and fulfilling week in this lovely apartment on a quiet street in one of the best locations in Paris. Barbara was a very welcoming and gracious host and had excellent suggestions for local walks and restaurants. This apartment will be my first choice next time I visit Paris. Thank you Barbara! Delightful! I hope to return soon...
Barbara is the perfect host. Even though she was away when we stayed, she always promptly replied to our queries and left clear, easy instructions on everything. She often surprised us with helpful tourist tips, without being asked. She is a gem. 5
This is my first experience with Airbnb, with nervous-and-exciting our once-in-a-life Paris journey began. We stay in Babara's apartment for 11days and made there our home away home. It's in the heart of Paris surrounded with restaurants and coffee. Babara is a great host. She is my private travel guide too :-) each day follow her instruction we walk the city for the best food, weekend street market, flea market.... And she helps us make plans for Lyon and Nice. She also let us to store one of our luggage in her apartment then we do not need to take it with our next round trip to Italy and Spain. Thank you Babara. Looking forward to meeting you when we back Paris next month:-)
Barbara gave us instructions on how to get to her place from Paris Nord. She greeted us when we arrived at 8:30pm and showed us around the apartment. It was clean and stocked with the essentials as well as tea and coffee. The location is very central and it is easy to get around Paris via the RER and Metro. We had no issues with the place at all. Our train leaving Paris was at 9pm, and Barbara was very flexible with allowing us to stay well past the usual check-out time. She is very friendly and accommodating. I would highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Paris.
We enjoyed so much staying at Barbara's place for 8nights. Before we arrive, she gave us her feedback really quckily, she answered all of my tiny questions very kindly. After 11 hours of long flight and finally arrived her flat, I will never forget her warm greeting. Since Barbara lives in the same building, we could always contact her when we needed help.
About the flat, everything (even Bialetti coffee pot, hairdryer, towels, all things for cook) was there, and it was MUCH bigger than the photos. The bed was enough for two little asian women. Everything was perpect but the bathroom, it could be very small for big people.
The Location is just wonderful. It was great to see river Seine and Notre Dame everyday. Even I could see the Seine through the window. It was very safe and beautiful island. It couldn't be better for tourists.
Thanks to this beautiful flat, my one week in Paris was just awesome. I would definitely stay here again when I go to Paris again!
I really don't have superlatives enough to describe Barbara and her apartment. Our stay was pure perfection from the very beginning to the end. Barbara is a fantastic host and her apartment is a light and airy gem in the best location of Paris that offers an oasis of peacefulness when one is traversing the beautiful Paris. Barbara as a host is what makes the AirBnB community great. We came as strangers and left as friends. On a five star AirBnB rating Barbara scores a perfect five and I highly recommend her to the whole AirBnB community.
The department is very well located, in the heart of Paris, and Barbara is a magnificent guest. We decided to spend 6 days with my wife in Paris and we selected this department due to its location. As it was our first experience with airbnb, we were a little afraid, but what we found surpassed our expectation. The department is as you see it in the pictures, luminous and bigger than any other studio in Paris. By stopping there, you are a walking distance from the most interesting places. Barbara wait for us upon arrival and was really helpful in all the process since booking, advising places to visit and providing us interesting books of Paris. This is definitively the place you want to stay.
