We are a married couple coming to boston for a postdoc at MIT for at least a year.
Anne and Thibault's flat was perfect for our stay in Grenoble. When we arrived, Anne and Thibault's friend gave us a warm welcome. The Gare Routiere and Grenoble Business School were just a few minutes walk away - two tram lines were also nearby - and two great markets - Place St Bruno and another. The flat itself was spacious, very comfortable - with washing machine and dishwasher. We would recommend it as an ideal place to stay in Grenoble.
Our family (2 adults and 2 young kids) stayed at the apartment for 6 weeks in June-July 2013 on an assignment to the Grenoble Ecole de Management. The apartment is good sized (for France) if travelling with small kids but may be small for 4 adults. There is plenty of storage and the kitchen is well equipped. Thibault and Anne were attentive hosts, even though they were not present locally. They arranged for one of their friends to pick us up at the train station and help us move to the apartment, and likewise on the trip back. The dishwasher in the apartment was not working when we got there, but they bought and got a new one installed with out a problem.
A few things to keep in mind: the apartment does not have AC, so when it is hot outside the apartment can get uncomfortable. I would suggest that Anne and Thibault consider investing in a couple of fans to make it more bearable for the hot summer days. The shower is small. Which may not be an issue for a short stay, but can become confining for a longer stay. There is a washer but no dryer, so plan accordingly. Also while the description of the apartment says that all international calls are free, that service is only available for certain countries. You may want to check with Anne and Thibault as to which countries are covered.
Other than these minor issues we had a wonderful stay. The apartment was very conveniently located for our purposes, 10 minutes walk from the main train station and bus station. The grocery store is less than a block away, and the tram station is an easy 5 minutes walk, with good connections to most places in the city.
Séjour très sympa pendant 3 mois dans un appartement vraiment facile à vivre et très bien équipé. Anne et Thibault étaient très réactif pour la moindre question. Que du positif donc !
We stayed here while studying abroad at GEM. The location was perfect, the apt was huge and well equipped. Anne and Thibault were great.
The appartement was exactly as shown in the pictures. And also the location was perfect for young people. Due to our inconveniënt flight schedule we had to pay the high check in and check out fees. Unfortunately there was not a lot of flexibility in checking out.
Anne and Thibault were very considerate guests. Though they only stayed one night, they left the place as they found it, were very communicative about the time they'd arrive at the apartment, and were very friendly.
Anne & Thibault were wonderful guests! It was an honor hosting them. I highly recommend them to all hosts, and look forward to their return again in the future!
Anne was a pleasure to host. Respectful, easy going and kind.
Great folks. Good communication. Probably the cleanest group of people to stay with me. They even took out the trash! I would have them back to my home anytime!
Anne and her Mother came to stay with us for 3 nights with Anne's 2 very delightful Nephews. Having language lessons with children in the morning is always fun in my way of thinking - and, yes, these children are already good teachers! My husband and I really enjoyed hosting this family. Anne and her Mother were very engaging and the children were very polite. When kindred souls come to visit, hosting is never work - just joy!
Had the pleasure of hosting Anne and her friends. They were the perfect guest; friendly, responsible and super clean, the place was left it impeccable. I highly recommend them to all Airbnb hosts everywhere.
Anne and Thibault were excellent guests -- they communicated well, arrived and left at the times they'd specified, and left the apartment clean, even stripping the beds without being asked! I would have them back anytime.
Anne came with her mother and stayed with us for 3 nights. They were quite lovely guests. I loved the way they settled in and seemed to enjoy my back yard! Very clean and courteous.
Anne and her mom, Marie, were pleasant and polite guests. We would welcome them again any time.
