Séjour très agréable au coeur de Paris. Appartement cosy et accueillant. Barbara a été très disponible pour me renseigner. J'y retournerai sans hésitation.
It was our first time in Paris, and we had a great time! We really like Barbara's apartment, it's cozy, comfortable, has everything we need. The balcony is especially beautiful!! The neighborhood is quite safe and quiet. They gave us very useful tips about local cafes, bakery as well as markets. And let us check out late in the afternoon. We will absolutely come back!
Barbara's apartment was my very first AirBnB that I reserved. From the very beginning, Barbara was very easy to communicate with, so I knew that it was going to be a great experience. Barbara responded to my messages very timely and always answered my questions. The apartment is about 16 miles from the CDG airport and in a less "touristy" area of Paris, which was fine for us since it made us feel like real Parisians. :) It's so close to a metro stop, which was fantastic! The apartment was adorable and clean and almost felt like we had our own hotel room. Everything needed was available -- kitchen supplies, bedding sheets, towels, umbrella, hairdryer, etc. As everyone else said, the balcony was the icing on the cake! Even though it was so cold during our stay, I would always hang out on the balcony to relax and people watch. We even woke up one morning to a man playing his trumpet walking down the street! It was so neat! There is an amazing bakery and supermarket 3 minute walking distance that we went to all the time. It was so convenient!
If you need transportation to get to the airport, I highly recommend taking UBER! Surprisingly, it was very easy to use in Paris and the car and driver was the best UBER EXPERIENCE that I've had and I use it all the time in San Francisco! The cost was Euro 45 one way to the airport (Euro 20 cheaper that the taxi we took when we arrived from the airport). You won't regret it! :)
Overall, our experience at Barbara's apartment was an amazing one and we recommend it to everyone! Hopefully, we will one day be back to Paris!
Merci beaucoup Barbara!
This was a comfortable and relaxing place to stay, well situated with a fantastic bakery on one end of the block and a special bar cafe on the other, great area overall. We slept well, enjoyed the picture window view of the lovely buildings across the way, and the kitchen had everything we needed. Merci beaucoup Barbara!
Barbara is a great host and very welcoming. She was helpful, accommodating and always ready to answer any questions and provide advice. The apartment was lovely and had everything I needed to feel at home. It is in a great location with supermarkets, bars and restaurants all nearby and is also close to the Metro. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone and really enjoyed my time here. Thanks again Barbara!
Barbara and her husband are perfect host as her husband waited for us even when we had arrived late at night. He offered us loads of useful information and gave us recommendation of restaurants for dining out. The house is clean,spacious, comfortable, as claimed in the description part. My boyfriend and I really enjoy our stay here. We definitely recommend this apartment!

Barbara and her husband were amazing hosts. They gave me wonderful recommendations for local cafes and museums. The place itself is quite lovely. Overall one of the best Airbnb experiences I've ever had. Would definitely stay there again.
Excellent host, who waited for us till late at night (we had a late night arrival). They offered us excellent tips of the neighbourhood. The studio is located in a great central spot, close to a number of great restaurants, shops and transportation options. A fabulous Parisian experience!
If you are looking for a place to stay in Paris. This is it..The location is perfect. Close to 3 major subway lines. You are right in the middle between Place de la Nation and Place de la Bastille. The area is extremely safe. Restaurants are everywhere. The bakery right at the corner is really good. The apartment was very clean and the balcony is a place to unwind, enjoy a bottle of wine and really enjoy Paris. Barbara is a great host and will give you so much good information to get your trip in Paris off to a good start. I give her and the apartment 5 stars
Barbara was a wonderful host, very friendly and answered all the questioned we had. Even though she couldn't meet us herself she sent her son who was equally welcoming and kept in contact throughout our stay. The apartment is in a great location and had everything we needed. Close to a metro station and the boulangerie on the corner sells the best croissants in Paris!
I guess there is only one word that can describe Barbara and her family "PERFECTION" Barbara is sweet, charming..... When they left the house was perfect, tidy, clean,as I have said, perfect.
I would really recommend any one to host her in their house, she is the perfect guest.
We would love to see you in Paris. Please do contact us if and when you come! And I am sorry I didn't remember your lovely name, Ainhoa.
It was very nice to have Barbara and her husband as a guest in my apartment. Very friendly, easy to communicate with and joyful people that follow their dreams!
Petite famille au contact très agréable et respectueuse de la location ; il faut dire que Barbara est elle-même propriétaire d'un appartement mis en location et donc elle sait respecter des affaires des autres. J'espère les recevoir à nouveau un jour.
Very nice with easy communication and friendly relationship, it was a real pleasure to host Barbara and Steve. . I higly recommand them.
Des hôtes charmants, agréables et sympathiques.
J'ai été contente de les accueillir pour quelques jours et je pense devenir leur hôte lorsque j'irais à Paris
What a fantastic time we had with Barbara and her friends as guests. We had fun offering them suggestions of things to see and do in the area. With their command of the french language they hardly needed us to get by but were sweet to listen to our list of favorite places to visit.
They left the apartment in great order and we were sad to see them go. Barbara and friends treated our home as their own and we were extremely comfortable with them throughout their stay.
With their knowledge of NY and Paris, Frank was especially happy! Old home week!
I highly recommend them to any one else to have them as a guest in your home. I hope that we are always so blessed with this quality of guest and that they return again soon.
We wish them a Bon Voyage and hope to rent your apartment in Paris in the near future. Judy & Frank
Had a pleasant stay in her studio.Very cozy and conveniently located. Balcony was the cherry on top. Enjoyed the little hidden park around the corner.. Very lively neighborhood.
Charming American lady that speaks English and French, she was really helpful recommending places to eat in the neighborhood. Great croissant just down the street !
