We are two guys, one American and one French, looking for someone to share our beautiful apartment with.
David is an easygoing, communicative host and this was a great place to stay.
My roommate and I stayed at David's place for four nights while traveling in Paris. The apartment was centrally-located just a few blocks away from the heart of the Marais. David was friendly, responsive, and he provided us with helpful recommendations of places to visit while we were in town. Check-in was a breeze. As some of the other reviewers mentioned, his unit is on the 6th floor, so be prepared for some exercise walking up those stairs! I'd stay at his apartment again for sure.
A great first airbnb experience and a great value. The location is just perfect. I'd just stroll to the Notre Dame area almost every day and once even walked as far as the Louvre. David is a gracious host, offered to help with my luggage, allowed early check in and gave me tips on what to see (most helpful was the tip to see Marie Antoinette's hamlet in Versailles. Loved it and wouldn't have seen it if David didn't mention it). The room is pretty big and quiet, I was tempted to sleep in a lot. I also felt really safe in the apartment, and in the neighborhood, even late at night. Lots of little shops in the area, especially those selling costume jewelry and knickknacks and, of course, bars in case you want a nightcap. Easy to get to and from CDG if you take the Roissybus (10 euros) that starts/stops at Opera Garnier (the 20 bus takes you to/from Opera to Republique, which is close to David's apartment). Of course, there is also the metro, but going up and down the stairs in the stations is no fun if you have heavy luggage. I'd recommend David's place to my friends.
David was a great host--he met us when we arrived and gave us recommendations on places to eat and local stuff in the neighborhood. He was very warm and friendly and his apartment is nice and clean and centrally located.
David’s apartment was situated ideally in the heart of Marais, without being smack in the middle of the most touristy areas. From the sixth floor, the view was spectacular. We didn’t mind climbing the six flights of stairs at the end of every day, but it’s something to keep in mind.
The apartment itself was spotless, some might call it spartan. There was very little furniture in it, but we kind of liked that. The bedroom itself was on the smaller side, and is probably better suited for one rather than two people. Regardless, we barely spent any time in it, as we had full use of the common areas in the apartment.
David was a great host: he was extremely helpful, accommodating, and had a ton of suggestions on how best to explore the neighborhood. Highly recommended!
Many thanks to David for making my stay in Paris so enjoyable. The location of his apartment was perfect for me, as was his advice re local bars and places to eat. The room was comfortable and private, and I was always made to feel at home.
The six flights of stairs? They just made the justification of all those patisserie visits much easier!
So it is with some reluctance that I thoroughly recommend this apartment - I want access to it again next year!
David was AMAZING!
Great Location, comfortable apartment and nice hosts!!
We had an awesome time at David's flat! David is super friendly and easy to strike up conversation with, and made us feel totally welcome. He gave us suggestions for where to eat and what to do etc. apartment is incredibly clean, and the building is located near tons of cafes, bars, shopping and transit. Next time I'm back in Paris, I would book David's place in a heartbeat.
David's place is amazing and even more comfortable than I had imagined. As all the other reviewers mention, the location can't be beat. Coordinating everything David was smooth and seamless. Definitely hope to stay there again!
Respectful and easy to work with this guest. I have had a good experience.
I would recommen to others owners.
