I speak french and english. My girlfriend speaks fluently spanish. We love traveling so we will do our best so that our guest feel comfortable during our stay.
Julien was very friendly and helpful and the apartment was clean, and comfortable. The place is in a great location close to the metro, shops and cafes. There is a beautiful park near apartment. I would recommend this for a couple. I would choose this location again! Thank you very much!
Julien's place was perfect and in a great location. His flat was comfortable and clean. I also enjoyed the fact that there was a market right across the street. Nick's girlfriend met us at the flat and gave us a tour. I found her to be very friendly and welcoming. The only complaint I have is that Julien is not very quick to respond, but in the end this did not affect our wonderful stay at his flat.
If I lived in Paris, I'd want to live here! What an sweet little studio in a fantastic neighborhood. We didn't get a chance to meet Julien, but were met by the lovely Celia who helped get us situated and gave us lots of advice on where to go.
The studio was very clean with a very comfortable bed and a convenient setup and lovely windows shaded by trees. Good for a couple. We even cooked a few times using ingredients we picked up in the neighborhood.
The neighborhood was a nice change of pace from the center of the city. It's a quick walk (6 minutes?) to the metro and we always felt safe. There are little shops and convenience stores and a laundromat all nearby. The apartment is up the hill from the main strip of Belleville and one of our favorite parts of the trip was going to the markets in the area and cooking little meals in the apartment. There are several boulangeries/pastry shops/chocolate shops/boucheries/produce stands in the area. For gourmet chocolate bars and fancy mustards and other culinary treats to take home, head to epicerie du 4 down the road. The Brasserie and boulangerie across from the apartment are also great.
Take advantage of the park (Buttes Chaumont)! It's so pretty and makes a great spot for a picnic or a morning run. For drinking or an Asian meal, head down the hill to the main section of Belleville or keep going towards Oberkampf (a 20-30 minute walk)
The only slightly odd feature of this apartment is that the shower and sink are its own room within the studio, but the toilet is in a private room down the hall. Didn't bother us, just bring a robe!
I really enjoyed my time staying here.
The studio is a good size and in a great location.
Julien was a great host and i would certainly stay here again!
The studio es perfect to visit Paris. Clean and cozy, is located in a beautiful neighborhood surrounded by very convenient stores, cafe and a bakery. The place el perfect for a couple visiting Paris.
Julien and his girlfriend were really helpful and friendly. Definitely we are staying here again next time.
The flat was great. The location is really good, very close the to metro which really brings you really close to everything. The flat itself is very cosy and homey, we loved staying there and it was a great place to come back to at the end of the day. It has everything you need. Julien is a very friendly host, we found him very helpful and responsive. Definitely recommended!
We had a great time at Julien's, starting from when we were booking we had helpful, quick communication from him. He gave us great info on transfers etc which made our journey much easier!
Apartment was very clean, well equipped and very comfortable.
The location was perfect for us as returning visitors, we felt we saw a bit more of the real Paris, for example we went to nearby Belleville for Thai food one night. The apartment is very close to two metro stations, a couple of supermarkets, bakery, fruit and veg stall, bars an cafes.
The WC is down the corridor, which isn't ideal but wasn't a problem as it is private.
Julien is a great host. He was enthusiastic about his neighborhood and city, and left us useful maps and interesting books. The apartment is small and comfortable. It was perfect for our family of 3 (including a one-and-a-half year old). There is a little elevator that fits two people (or one person and everyone's luggage). My only complaint is that the toilet is down the hall, but that wasn't a big deal as we didn't share it with anyone. There is a shower in the apartment. The neighborhood is nice, really close to a beautiful park, with lots of restaurants, cafes, and great people-watching. The metro stop is very close by. The view onto the street is great, and though there is a fair bit of vehicle noise, it really quiets down at night. We had a great stay and highly recommend staying at Julien's.
