Confort, respect et confiance
The reservation was canceled 30 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
We booked at the last minute and our host was extremely responsive to ensure that we could pick up the keys and be shown the basics of entering the building. The apartment was comfortable, spacious (for Europe) and just as described. While the building is old (ie charming), it has been well refurbished and common areas are clean. The windows of the apartment are much more solid than is typical in Europe, and the apartment faces inward so there is very little street noise (also unusual in Europe in our experience).
We stayed nine days and felt much more like Parisians than tourists. The baker right across the street was very friendly and we started each day with a croissant. The Afghan restaurant a couple of doors away was tasty and inexpensive. Lots of small grocery stores on the street or around the corner, even at odd hours. The nearby Saturday farmers market was the real thing.
The neighbourhood is fairly convenient to most sights, using the Metro. We walked home from the top of Montmartre easily.
We used the coffee maker, clothes washer and the TV (lots of channels, 4-5 in English) and they worked well. Check the kitchen drawers for appliance manuals. The wifi worked perfectly which was a treat.
I would stay here again and recommend this apartment without hesitation.
One tip we got from French friends -- service is included in the price in many restaurants so you are not required to tip. Look at the bottom of your bill for "Service compris", or similar wording.
Celine's place is just as charming as the photos and description depict. It is maintained with care and Celine is very responsive and kind as a host. The neighborhood is very lively. Bakeries, cafes, bars, markets in immediate access but her unit is tucked quietly away in a secured building. Highly recommend this flat! :)
The apartment is spacious, nicely decorated and in a great area. I recommend booking this place - you'll love it.
Cecile was friendly and super easy to get along with. Everyone in her building is really nice and her place was clean, spacious and very cute. I recommend her to everyone!
Cecile's Flat is very good location, close to a major metro stop. Good one bedroom with a second sleeping spot with pull out couch. Nice small kitchen perfect for breakfast. Good bakery and store right outside building. It will help you if you brush up on some French to work through with Housekeeper. Would definitely rent again when going back. Very good for the price. Works well for two separate sleeping arrangements.
Perfect Stay - fantastic part of town.
As a host Cecile was so helpful, Yolaine her helper (as cecile was out of Paris) was full of life and a pleasure to meet. The flat was elegant, chaming and had more than enough room. Its light and airy and the whole building was filled with nice people (well, the one's I met!). It was a very very enjoyable stay and one I truly hold to the highest regard.
I have been asked to return to Paris for work, This flat will be my number one choice if it is not booked out before! :) ..
We did not have internet for 2 days as the housekeeper spoke no english ( therefore she could not communicate with us ) The sink did not drain ( as we told Cecile ) but she was out of the country so there were no arrangements to get it fixed- We did not see her the whole time we were there to give her any damage deposit ) When we checked out, she pointed to the broom & refrigerator and let us believe everything was fine- ( she would sweep & throw away what food was left )
The neighborhood was not the best- It was not what we expected for the ptice we paid-
The flat was perfect - well kept, comfortable great location (although I'd specifcally wanted to stay in this wonderful part of Paris anyway). Do remember to take towels, only let down was the shower - not fixed to wall!
Celine was away but her housekeeper let us in and my deposit was returned safe and sound via PayPal.
Would definatley stay again! Thanks Celine.
Charming apartment, vibrant neighborhood, very comfortable bed and a very responsive host. Everything is exactly as photographed. We would love to return.
Wonderful young lady who is very clean, organized and likes to travel. I will rent to her again and again and without hesitation I can say, she is five stars.
