Hi, my name is Samuel. I hope you have a great time at my flat and on your trip to Paris. Bienvenue!
We had a lovely two week stay in Samuel's apartment on rue Pascal. Samuel was both gracious and easy to communicate with. We flew into CDG-Roissy and it was easy to get to the apartment via the RER thanks to Samuel's clear directions. Our flight from the US arrived later than planned but we were able to reschedule our meeting with Samuel to pick up the key without any difficulty via phone/text thanks to his fluency in English.
Accommodation was basic, but as described - priced right and in a great, convenient location. The kitchen was also basic but it was easy to produce quick, tasty meals with the tools provided. Close to Metro stations Les Gobelins and Censier Daubenton, both on the 7 Line with easy access to the Islands, the Marais, and the Louvre. Great bakeries, patisseries, cafes, in the immediate neighborhood and on the Avenue Les Gobelins. Rue Mouffetard is only 5 mins walk from the apartment - with stalls selling cheese, charcuterie, spit-roasted chickens, fruit and vegetables. Multiple Franprix supermarkets also close by. Great neighborhood feel - unpretentious, mostly families, working people, students. The Butte aux Cailles neighborhood to the south worth a visit.
There is a nearby bar below which can get a bit raucous and stays open into the wee hours. There's also a super-bright street light outside the bedroom window but the heavy curtains Samuel provided kept the room fairly dark at night. The bathroom smelled mildewy and there was evidence of mold around the window frame, which wasn't a problem for us as the weather was warm and we kept the windows open during our entire stay - but I could see this being a problem if one had to keep the windows closed in colder weather. No extractor fan in the bathroom.
All in all, we really enjoyed our stay here and would definitely consider renting Samuel's apartment again. Thank you Samuel! :-)
The studio is nice, clean and cozy in a safe and vibrant area.
A lot of attractions in a walking distance.
Samuel is a welcoming and intelligent host.
Helpful and allows privacy in the same time.
Samuel was very easy and friendly to deal with and we got the key off of him no problem. The flat is exactly as he describes, so there weren't any surprises. 25m2 is small, so don't expect to want to hang out too much here. Good for sleeping though and the price is about as cheap as you're going to find for the location. Location good if you want to do all the major touristy stuff on the left bank, Rue mouffetard is great for getting food (supermarket and boulangerie close by) and has some nice bars and restaurants. The flat is very basic though, with very basic amenities, no extra toilet paper and no bin bags provided. Shower very basic too. Surprisingly comfy bed, although hopefully Samuel provides thicker duvet in winter, fine for us in March though. Served our purpose.
This apartment was really great - good location, nice and clean, quiet and comfortable. Samuel was very accomodating and let us check out in the evening to suit a late train home which was very useful. Would definitely stay here again.
El departamento de Samuel tiene una gran conexión con todos los medios de transporte. El mismo está muy bien distribuido lo que lo hace confortable. Nuestra estadía fue más que placentera. Muy recomendable.
We really enjoyed our stay in Samuel's flat. The area was quiet but also close to many small shops and restaurants. It is close to the metro station and close enough to walk to many places of interest. Samuel kindly accommodated
our check-in and check-out times. We highly recommend staying in his flat!
Samuel was very kind, but we did't meet personally, his mother waited us in front of the house and gave us the key. Apartment is very comfortable and close to center, it has a perfect location, great neighborhood and nearby rue Mouffetard is really nice street with lots of everything you need to feel Paris. Absolutely brilliant choice to couple, definitely come back here. Thanks, Samuel!
Propriétaire très agréable. Très recommandable!
Samuel is a very obliging host. The flat is very clean and tall enough for two persons. He also has some great tourist informations and other reasonable hints printed for his guests.
Me and my boyfriend stayed in Paris for about 5 days and really enjoyed this Studio.
Had a very nice stay in February of 2014.
