Very friendly host, who gave us all directions and was eager to help. Nice apartment with a perfect balcony, very clean and tidy. Good location: nearest subway in 5 mins, 15 min walking distance from Place de la Bastille, around 30 mins by foot to the city centre (Louvre), plenty cafes and restos nearby. Area is considered safe, we have experienced no problems whatsoever. A food market nearby with local/imported fruits selection and with nice cheese :).
Barbara's apartment was exactly what my husband and I were looking for in Paris. We didn't know the areas at all, so it's hard to pick one and hope it's ok, but this apartment is in a fantastic location and very safe. We enjoyed visiting the nearby cafes, supermarket, the helpful laundromat down the road, and the Velib (public bikes) were only €8 for the week and on our street.
We had a Bike Tour Guide named Anto who helped us with those.
By bike, Barbara's apartment was a short ride to everything (Eiffel, Louvre, Arc de Triomphe, shopping areas).
She gave us great tips on where to visit and was so kind and easygoing when we met her. She even left us a wonderful bottle of wine which we enjoyed! It's great to have an English-speaking host, and she left herself available during the duration of our trip if we had any questions.
The apartment had everything we needed- kitchen with supplies and coffee/tea provided, comfy bed, big window to open when it got warm. The Bath was perfect to soak in after being on my feet all day! However needed a knife to get the plug out which would get stuck.
The highlight is the balcony, providing great views of beautiful surrounding buildings (it's a beautiful street). We would often have breakfast there and enjoy the early morning serenity.
The noise at night time was minimal. Only one Friday night could we hear some people at a cafe outside til early hours of the morning.
She was kind enough to clean the apartment after our stay, including washing sheets and towels, so we didn't have to do it.
My husband and I would recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Paris! Thank you, Barbara!
We really enjoyed our four night stay in Barbara's studio apartment. It's bright, clean and well-located - near lots of restaurants, shops and bars, and just a few minutes walk from a few different metro stations, for getting into central Paris. The large balcony is really lovely for sitting in the sun.
Barbara was a great host, leaving us plenty of recommendations for places to go, and quickly responding to any queries we had. She was also very flexible, waiting for us when we arrived late and accommodating a late check out on our last day.
The flat was stocked with essentials and there is a supermarket a few mins away for anything else we needed.
The flat was really cosy and exactly as described. It was a perfect base to explore Paris. The neighbourhood is nice and there's everything you need just around the corner.
Barbara pointed out some good spots in the vicinity so that was helpful, too.
Can defninitely recommend her place!
Accueil chaleureux ,des renseignements intéressants sur le quartier ,logement lumineux et le plus,c'est le grand balcon garni de plantes.
Premier séjour avec airbnb ,très enthousiaste ,nous le recommandons.
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!
is very nice and polite person. I would welcome her anytime again.
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 !
