Nous cherchions un appartement pour notre famille dans Paris, pour profiter aux mieux des visites. Je ne m'imaginais pas pouvoir trouver un appartement aussi spacieux, lumineux et si calme en plein Paris et quel bonheur cela doit être de profiter de sa petite terrasse lorsqu'il fait beau. Il est situé au pied de la bouche de métro St Ambroise,c'est vraiment pratique. Le quartier est très sympa, de nombreux resto et café tout autours, ainsi que des petits supermarchés. Je reviendrai sans hésiter chez James, si nous retournons à Paris.
First thing to say is that James is a great host - very helpful, accommodating and supportive. This was a last minute booking and we were worried that we would not find anywhere in time but he immediately responded to our late-evening request and even though was not in Paris at the time, made the necessary arrangements for us to be greeted on arrival with the key.
The accommodation is spacious with all the necessary home comforts. One great asset is that it's very quiet though inevitably some noise can be heard in a neighbouring apartment in the morning - though it wasn't too early! Two other assets are the metro being so close and the boulangerie across the road. Not much of a selection of cafes/restaurants in the immediate vicinity but you don't have to walk far.
Overall, we would highly recommend James as a host and his apartment.
Everything was as expected. We weren't able to meet James but he was just a phone call away and very helpful. The flat was comfortable for our family of 5 and the location was fantastic. The metro was just outside the door, we could walk to a lot of the tourist sites. Markets, cafes and bakeries were all around us, I couldn't believe how good the location was once I got a look around the area. We arrived late Sunday afternoon and didn't have to worry about finding food because James had left food and wine for us, thank you very much. Paris is a beautiful city to explore and this flat was a great home base for our few days in the city.
Great stay and James was really helpful. We text him several times for advice and got a quick response. Paris was having extremely hot weather whilst we were there so air conditioning would have been great. Location was good with a number of places to eat closeby and the subway on the door step. Thanks James.
James was a great host. Unfortunately, James wasn't able to be there, so we never got to meet him, but he was able to be reached by phone or email at anytime for any of our questions. The flat was very conveniently located - it is minutes away from a metro station and if you're ok with covering the city by foot - we were able to reach all of the big monuments/ destinations by walking.
Flat was clean and had everything we needed. It did get a bit hot at night, but that was due to the weather & this was improved a bit by keeping the windows open/ closing the blinds at night.
There is one of the best coffee/ Pastry shops EVER right across the street from the apartment. If you stay w/ James - please visit them - it was incredible an so convenient.
We would definitely recommend James to anyone, very pleasant to deal with and extremely helpful! Thanks James.
Wonderful apartment, well stocked and very close to the subway. Great bedrooms for sleeping and very fast Internet.
Fantastic stay. Location made it possible to walk to city hall and Notre Dame and ideal for jumping on the subway. Great tips on the vicinity provided by the host. Paid parking nearby in case you drive to Paris (right off Ledru Rollin, 12 min walk). We look forward to staying there again. Thank you!!!
Just as described-suited our requirements perfectly.Great lolcation so near the Metro and very handy for central Paris attractions.Ideal for our family(2 adults,3 children).Safe,secure and clean-all the boxes ticked.
James is a very affable and reliable host,there to greet us and guide us.Provided us with lots of info on local foodstores,etc.Very likeable guy.
The apartment is just next to St Ambroise Metro line 9. You can go straight to Galeries La Fayette with line 9. Apartment was airy and breezy. Loved the outdoor area. You can hear birds chirping in the morning. Boys loved the toys in the house. The fridge was stocked and James was there to greet us. We had a great stay there. Thanks a lot!
We stayed a long weekend in the apartment. It is very easy to use the metro system around Paris and there are three different metro lines close by - one just outside the door. James has been very helpful and the apartment was just what we had hoped for. We would like to go back anytime. The apartment has everthing you need and we felt very welcome.
