I'm Japanese artiste and Curator in Paris.
Michiko and Gideon were my last hosts and I could not have asked for a better location, warmer and open accommodation, and easy place to stay, rest, bathe, cook. They were warm hosts, quite relaxed and welcoming, and it is bittersweet to be gone--perhaps Paris is also to blame. The room itself was precisely what a weary traveler or trekker through Paris needs--warm, cozy, perfectly laid out personal space--as was the apartment. And the location is tough to beat, right off the 1 metro and 69 bus line to some of the biggest tourist attractions on the planet and easy access to metro, airport lines as well as to walking many of the most beautiful corridors of the city. I'm grateful for the stay and highly recommend.
We stayed at Michiko and Gideon's place for 4 days and it was great. The room is cozy and clean, the apartment is lovely and in such a great location, just right next to the station Bastille and it's close to the center(Notre dame). On Thursdays, there is a market just outside on the street, we didn't have enough time to shop but it seems really nice. We didn't get to see Michiko and Guideon often but they were nice hosts and were willing to answer all your questions.All in all, we had a pleasant stay in Paris.
Our stay with Michiko and Gideon was awesome. They are great hosts, very helpful and well dispossed to answer any question we had. They are also very fun and easy going.
The appartment is in a really good location, near lots of metro stations and if you like to walk it's easy to get to the main attractions by feet also.
The bed is very confortable and the shower has very good pressure.
We recommend it and we definetely will stay again in our next visit.
Accueil très sympathique dans un appartement facilement accessible depuis la gare de Lyon. Sommeil au calme. Merci Michiko
My friend and I stayed at Michiko's for three days in January, and it was a lovely time! Her apartment is right next to a tube station which is in the same line as Gare Du Nord, which was great for us since we came by Eurostar. You can walk a little bit along the canal and you'll reach another tube station as well. The room was quite nice and the bed was really comfortable! Perfect for two people. We didn't get to see Michiko and Guideon often but they were very nice and polite when we did. Would definitely recommend!
Super nice hosts, Convenient location, Great room and interior!
Thank you for the wonderful trip experience.
I recently had the pleasure of staying at this awesome place for my trip to Paris.
Michiko was on holidays so I stayed with Gideon, and he's a really awesome guy! So down to earth, easy to talk to and just a real genuine dude. He was more than happy to go out of his way and recommend me some top places to go and see or to have an awesome meal, and there are honestly quite a huge handful of those!
The unit is located within stonesthrow from Bastille metro station, and you really can't ask for better positioning. It's a block away from an entire street of pubs, there's a fresh market on thurs and sunday right outside the house - Amazing!
The unit itself is everything you'd ask for in the heart of Paris, and has a cool homeliness about it that I really loved.
It really is awesome to get back from a day walking around the craziness of Paris and be greeted with good conversation, along with a nice place to rest and recharge for the next day.
All in all, I can VERY highly recommend these guys and their awesome unit. I had an amazing time and I'll definitely be back.
Michiko's place is conveniently located near Batille Metro station and there is a market right next to her place on Sunday,
Michiko was a great host who shared her lovely apartment graciously. She provided a clean room and bed and a safe place to sleep. She also shared her European apple charger with me! The bathroom was especially nice bc the water would stay hot for a long time! Michiko and Gideon gave me good recommendations on places to eat. I have two complaints--the doorknobs in the apartment would keep falling off and also the neighbors were very noisy, especially on Fri and Sat nights. The room for rent does not have much insulation in terms of noise. Besides that, I had a great time and am so glad to have met Michiko during my first stay in Paris. Thanks so much for everything!
Thanks a lot for hosting us. Michiko and Gideon provided us with everything we needed for a nice stay. Very great hosts and very comfortable place. The room was located 1 min away from Metro stop (Bastile) which is very convenient (if you want to see whole Paris in 2 days).For sure a place to go back when we will be next time in Paris.
Great guests, I recommend them to everyone
