Thanks Georgina&George from down under
Wonderful apartment. Filled with soft northern light all day,and views of the river, reflections of views, and reflections of reflections everywhere you look. It's small but so perfectly arranged that it feels spacious.On top of this you have Claire, to welcome you, orient you, and to remain available to help with reservations, suggestions, etc. There can't be a better place to stay in Paris. Thanks, Nina and Claire.
We had a brilliant time in this gorgeous, warm, sundrenched apartment. so conveniently located close to Union station we had easy access to the whole city within 15 minutes. this part of town is a little less hectic than others, and makes coming home a delight. the apartment is warm (we went mid winter) which was really appreciated after a day out sight seeing.
Nina is friendly, helpful, and was always available. she made us feel welcome even though we never met! i can't recommend this place highly enough for the location, the luxury, the space (we cooked up a christmas lunch with ease), and Nina's helpfulness.
Nina's apartment is truly as charming as it is in the photographs. It's also perfectly situated, smack dab in the center of the city, so getting around couldn't have been easier. The apartment was very clean and well-stocked (and gorgeously decorated). Claire, the wonderful concierge, took us on a quick walk through the neighborhood, and briefed us on all the great restaurants and markets nearby. She also came to our rescue when a snowstorm in the States cancelled our flight home. Thank you, Nina and Claire, for making our vacation a great one.
WOW! My SECOND STAY in Nina's Loft in THREE months! That should tell you something. Excellent location, accommodations, and amenities! Claire is OUTSTANDING and will greet you on your arrival and give you a wonderful tour of the neighborhood and points of interest that will greatly help you during your stay. You will feel like a "local" and not a tourist:)
There is not a better location and view in Paris.
We enjoyed our stay at Nina's apartment as it was close to public transportation, numerous Parisian monuments and right on the river.
Claire was waiting for us when we arrived and took us on a very informative tour of the neighborhood. It was a bit torturous though as we were starving from our flights and she kept pointing out all of the delicious eateries around us! :)
The linens on the bed were very soft and cozy and my favorite thing was sitting on the couch in the evening and watching the boats pass by. The view was simply amazing.
This was our first Airbnb experience and the communication from start to finish was great. We appreciated the e-mails, notebook left for us with information on our neighborhood, and the time Claire took to make us feel welcome in Paris. She went above and beyond taking us to the subway when we departed and even helped with one of our bags. She was so sweet!
I would only change one thing...it's time to replace the scratchy towels.
Amazing apartment! We had the best time staying at Nina's! The location is simply amazing right next to Notre Dame with beautiful views of the architecture and the River Seine! The apartment is very romantic and an excellent place to cuddle up with a bottle of wine and relax. We had the easiest time moving around the area with the Metro right there along with the Hop-On/Hop-Off buses and boat tours right at the corner! We had a private tour upon our arrival to introduce us to the two islands and the left and right banks of the river. Nina is a great host and has an amazing apartment! We will definitely come back!
Thank you to Nina and her Concierge in Paris Claire for a wonderful vacation! The loft is indeed in the best location in the city center. In 5 days we only used the Metro one time - going to the Eiffel Tower. The lift is large enough for 2 adults along with 2/pcs of luggage. The bathroom was nice with good water pressure and plenty of hot water. The bed was super comfortable. There was plenty of storage space in the wardrobe and bathroom cabinets.
My husband of almost 30 yrs survived cancer this past year, so this trip was a celebration of our love and thankfulness for his full recovery. Nina's loft was very conducive to romantic evenings watching the lights dance on the Siene. It's an experience we will never forget. We highly recommend this flat for couples looking for a romantic retreat - no matter what your age!
My husband and I spent a week in this lovely loft apartment. The location is very convenient and there is an abundance of good restaurants, bakeries and shops in the area. The apartment is quiet and has a new elevator that is large enough for two plus luggage. Paris can be a visual overload so we particularly enjoyed being able to watch boat traffic on the river as we rested between sightseeing trips. Public transportation is nearby and convenient. It is adequate but small if you have a lot of luggage you may not have a place to put everything. While we did not cook, we did have breakfast in the room and used the washer/dryer with no problems. It was great to have Claire meet us and although it was raining, she gave us a brief tour of the neighborhood and was always available to answer questions and get transportation for us to the airport. I would highly recommend this apartment for one or two people.
Nina, your apartment in Paris is the best. I couldn't dream of a best location, best views, so comfy and beautiful. This is the best experience in Paris ever! and everything is at a walking distance! a gem :)
Nina, ton appartement à Paris est vraiment magnifique. on ne peut imaginer meilleur emplacement, au milieu de tout, avec des vues superbes, confortable, un décor de rêve, dedans et dehors. C'est ma meilleure expérience à Paris! et tout est si proche... un vrai bijou :)
Nina! Wow! As the man said, there are only so many front row seats - and this is definitely one of them. The views are tremendous, every where you look. Notre Dame, the Seine, the lights at night. Spectacular. I have to say, I became quite smitten with the little bakery across the street, the best baguettes in Paris. I recommend the "traditionale", great way to start the morning. Anyway, a very cool flat. Can't wait to go back!
I just wanted to share what a lovely experience I had staying at your Parisian Penthouse! I felt at home with all of the gorgeous furnishings and the location is just incredible. It feels like you're living on a yacht, having views of the Seine that are unrivaled by anywhere else I've stayed in Paris. Thank you again for the hospitality and for creating such a beautiful atmosphere that provides a true French experience.
