Hello my name is Thierry -Found of italian motorcycles, Vinyle records, Yoga, travel, Musée du Louvre, wines, and litterature.
Beautiful apartment - very clean with lovely interior! Thierry was so welcoming and helpful! I would highly recommend staying here, I will definitely be recommending to friends.
Awesome apartment! Thierry was a very gracious host, the apartment is well designed, well equipped, well located (2 metro lines right there!), and quiet. I would definitely stay here again and highly recommend!
Our rental of Thierry's apartment was our first airbnb experience and it couldn't have been better. First, Thierry was an incredibly accommodating and gracious host - from his prompt e-mail responses before we arrived, to meeting us at the train station after a later than scheduled arrival, to providing recommendations of restaurants in the neighborhood, and to his leaving a bottle of wonderful wine and a plate of delicious cheese and olives for us to enjoy during our stay.
Second, the loft apartment is exactly as pictured, and met our (2 adults) needs perfectly. Although we didn't see the sun much during our visit, when it did shine, the apartment was light and airy. The kitchen and bathroom are fully functional and clean, and Thierry provides towels, dishes and all of the other amenties you would need to feel at home in his apartment. The bed was very comfortable. Although it wasn't an issue for us, if you're not a fan of ladders, which you must climb to get to the double bed in the loft, or circular stairways, which you must climb for four flights to get to the apartment, you might want to think twice about renting the apartment.
Last, if you're looking to stay in an area away from the hordes of tourists that descend upon Paris, Thierry's apartment is a great choice. It's close to the Bastille, and the neighborhood, which is full of shops, restaurants and wonderful boulangeries/patissieries, makes you feel like you're living in the city as opposed to just visiting it. There are several metro stations close by as well as a Velib stand (which we didn't have a chance to use this trip), so other areas of the city are easily reachable.
Overall, we had a great stay, and hope that any future visit to Paris will be as comfortable and enjoyable!
This is a lovely hideaway nested under the roof of a typical Parisian bulding. It's got everything you need and is very very quiet. The neighborhood is trendy and cool, with millions of bars and restaurants on the doorstep. Thanks Thierry, my stay was perfect!

Book Thierry's loft!! It was much more than accommodation during our week in Paris; it was a highlight in it own right. The space is sleek, elegant, magical -- perfect as a base from which to explore this vibrant Paris neighborhood and the city beyond. Thanks to its layout, the loft feels unexpectedly spacious -- not to mention delightfully airy and open, even during the sometimes hot and humid Paris summer. Thierry has clearly renovated the space with care as well as style, to stunning effect. As a host, meanwhile, he is unsurpassed: tremendously attentive to every question we had in the lead-up to our visit, he walked us through our arrival from the airport to the loft, helped us with our luggage, set us up with a bottle of wine and a lovely plate of feta and olives (so delicious!), and checked in periodically during our stay to make sure we had everything we could need. I cannot imagine a more perfect host; indeed, I hope we stay in touch, because I suspect he could become a great friend.
Appartement et hôte vraiment sympas, avec de la personnalité.
Thierry's place was perfect! Safe location close to several subway and train stations and walking distance from many Paris hit spots. The flat was very clean and Thierry had everything organized and ready to go.
Very secure building too. It was very comfortable staying there; we cooked several meals, enjoyed relaxing evenings, and slept late!
Thierry was exceptionally helpful; leaving us maps and cards for some great restaurants and shops. The suggestions he made were all great and if we got to talking with any of the restaurant or shop owners, they all knew Thierry. He met us at the train and came to see us off before we left. Thierry made sure we knew anything we needed to about the flat abd was easy to keep in contact with.
The flat is close to several grocery stores, a market, and tons of shops. Easy walking distance to the Marais and the popular Jewish quarter.
Next time I'm in Paris I would try to rent this flat from Thierry again.
