We enjoyed staying here, however, the kitchen was very small. For a couple that enjoys most meals at "home" this is not the best place to stay. There really isn't room for cooking. The location is great though and the host, very accessible ! If you will eat most meals out and like a very central location this is great place.
Kylliki is so sweet and warm hearted that you directly feel home.
She is very attentionate.
She knows very well her neighborhood and gives you all the information you might need.
The studio is lovely, was very clean, it recieves a beautiful natural light.
The neighborhood is charming. I would recommend 100%.
I had a great 2-night stay at Kylliki's apartment! I did not get to meet Kylliki but she provided clear instructions on how to obtain the apartment keys from the gardienne lady. The check-out process was fuss-free too.
The apartment is located in a safe and quiet neighbourhood that is within walking distance (5min) to a metro station (Censier-Daubenton metro station). There were many cafes, restaurants, bakeries, supermarkets as well as a pharmacy near the apartment. For those who will be travelling from Paris CDG airport to the apartment via the RER line B, the nearest RER station is Luxembourg which is 15-20min walk away from the apartment. The apartment is located on the third floor and is accessible by a spiral staircase.
Apartment - Cleanliness and Amenities:
The apartment was just as advertised, if not better! Everything in the cosy studio apartment was clean and the double sofa bed was really comfortable as well. The kitchenette was well-equipped with multiple sets of utensils, coffee maker, toaster, kettle, refrigerator, etc. The shower area may be slightly small for taller individuals but other than that the bathroom was perfect - there was a washing machine in the bathroom (not mentioned in the apartment description) too.
Kylliki also kindly compiled a folder with recommendations on Paris attractions and restaurants. My friend and I really loved the food at Cave La Bourgogne which was a stone's throw away from the apartment :)
The single downside of our stay was that the wifi only worked after 12am each night and the connection was not very stable either. Kylliki mentioned that she will be ordering a new modem from a different company so hopefully the internet access would not be a problem in the future.
The studio was a perfect location for my stay during a conference at the Sorbonne Nouvelle. The area was full of shops and restaurants and felt safe and friendly. A nice walk up Rue Monge toward St. Michel and near the Jardin des Plantes and the foodie Rue Moufftard. The studio had everything I needed, the perfect 'room of one's own' for my stay. Very clear directions in arriving and getting in. I would happily go back and stay there!
Kylliki was very attentive, responding to mails and calls prior and during the stay to make sure that everything was fine. I booked the appartment with very short notice and she tried to accomodate everything to my needs.
I didn't actually meet the host but she was very quick to respond to all my messages, explained everything very well and put me in touch with the lovely guardian who lives in the apartment block. The guardian was very kind, helpful and attentive.
The apartment was small and cosy and well equipped. It was very well positioned in a safe, private courtyard which was very peaceful and quiet in the evening. In spite of all this, I didn't sleep very well at all during my stay. I found the bed quite bumpy and uncomfortable and the pillows quite old and not very comfortable. I was also bitten very badly by insects during my stay which didn't help my bad night's sleep. I'm not sure if it was mosquitoes or some other bug because the bed is quite old...
Other than this, the Internet did not work at all during my stay which made life quite difficult as my phone had been stolen when I arrived in Paris. Thankfully the guardian very kindly lent me an old mobile phone to use as an alarm clock which was helpful.
If I would suggest improvements it would be that a new matress and pillows are imperative and to either state on the advert that the Internet does not work or to to buy a proper Internet connection, as the free wifi is obviously not strong enough.
Overall I liked the apartment and felt safe and well attended to, but I would say that the price is rather high considering the state of the bed and the lack of Internet.
Perfect communication with Kylili for the sublet of this perfect studio located in a perfect neighborhood for a perfect night in Paris with the perfect friends !
We will definitely book it again !
Sono stata a Parigi 2 settimane per lavoro e la mia esperienza è stata fantastica. Non ho mai incontrato Kylliki di persona, ma tutto era organizzato alla perfezione. Qualche giorno prima di partire mi ha mandato una email con tutte le informazioni per arrivare all'appartamento e con le indicazioni su dove avrei trovato le chiavi di casa. L'appartamento è piccolo ma molto carino, pulito e dotato di tutto cio' che serve, proprio come rappresentato nelle immagini. Ideale per 2 persone, ma può ospitare fino a 4 persone perchè c'è un divano a letto. La zona è molto bella, un po' rumorosa di giorno ma la notte è tranquilla. Si trova a soli 5 minuti a piedi dalla via principale del quartiere Latino, ricca di negozi e ristoranti. Kylliki è molto disponibile e gentile e risponde rapidamente alle email. Consiglio a tutti di soggiornare in questo appartamento, non ve ne pentirete.
Loved this lofted apartment in a quite convenient area of town. The beds were comfortable-- even the sofa bed! The US needs to step up their sofa bed game, I've learned. I was in town for the marathon and the full kitchen was great to be able to prepare my own breakfast race morning. We were lucky to have almost perfect weather and it was great to have big windows to allow the breeze in. The building, though in a popular area and on a main street, is wonderfully quiet.
Kylliki was super friendly, attentive to questions and quick to provide insights about how to get around and, especially, tips to handle rush hour on the trains.
Kylliki was really quick at responding to all my messages. She gave me really clear directions to the apartment and instructions for how to get in.
The apartment itself was just as advertised. The location was really great, and there was no noise at night. It was clean and spacious, and the bed was comfy. Good value for money- I would definitely stay here again!
I was not home when my guests were at the house, but was told that except for a couple of housekeeping glitches that were attended to initially, everything went smoothly. I hope they had a good time over the holiday. I was told that they were all smiling when the taxi came to take them back to town!
Kylliki rented our apartment for some colleagues and they were very nice and respectful. I would not hesitate to rent to them or their colleagues again!
Kylliki and her wonderful family were a delight to have as guests. They were such friendly and respectful people with a positive and wonderful attitude at all times. Some might hesitate hosting a family with a baby in their apartment, but this little angel is the easiest, quietest and smartest little girl that always finds a simple way of entertaining herself without any disturbance to anybody. I am so happy to have met and hosted Kylliki, her husband Pavel, her sweet mother-in-law and her little angel. They are welcome to stay at my apartment whenever they like.
