Vincenzo est un hôte sympath, disponible pour nous recevoir au mieux!!!!!Sa maison est très jolie, avec son jardinet, ses rosiers grimpants, son jasmin et sa glycine!!! Il est vrai que sa demeure est située dans le quartier de Saint-Denis, mais cela n'enlève pas le charme et le calme de cette maison!!! Au travers de son décor, il nous transmet sa passion photographique de ses voyages!!! Si j'ai l'occasion de revenir, ce sera avec grand plaisir!!!
Response from Vincenzo:
Vincenzo was very kind when we arrived, even though it was later that we originally planned as we got lost on the way from the airport. He also came over to show us how to make the shower cooler after we had an issue with it. The location is nice enough, with close access to the Metro to get to Paris, and walking distance to grocery stores. You might not feel as safe at night here, as it feels a lot grittier than most of Paris. Probably fine though if you're aware.
You might be concerned however that there is very visible black mold growing up the walls, on the doors, and on the shower curtain. It stunk because of this, and I think it should be taken care of. I gave our host the option of taking care of this before we left this feedback, and perhaps giving us a discount because of it, and he said that he doesn't accept blackmail and we should have stayed in a hotel. I think that was inappropriate. The option is not "stay at a hotel" or "stay at an airbnb with moldy walls." I have stayed at other airbnbs that were not moldy! I understand paying less and getting less, but mold - which stinks and can make people very sick - seems like too much to have to deal with. I especially wouldn't want to be here when it's too muggy out, as a few other reviewers pointed out.
The little patio area outside was nice, and you have two keys to get through the gate and door, so it is secure. The wifi worked fine. The listing isn't kidding that the kitchen is minimal; you have to go into the bathroom to wash dishes, vegetables, and your hands, which left a trail of water on the floor. There was no floor mat, so you have to use one of the towels provided or you are likely to slip. So bring an extra towel! ...Also lots of dust and cobwebs were under the bed and on some of the walls. ...The place would be a lot nicer with a thorough cleaning!
Overall I would say it is worth staying here, as the fundamentals are here, Vincenzo seems like a good person, and you have easy enough access to Paris. However you have to be able to put up with the things I mentioned. If you have another option that is the same price, you might consider that one. I think leaving 3 stars is pretty fair or maybe generous. Hopefully though he will fix these issues soon and they will not be problems any longer.
I wish him, and you on your travels, all the best! :)
Very sympathic - we enjoyed our stay! Thank you Vincenco
Appréhension en découvrant le quartier de Saint-Denis mais au final, maison dans une petite rue calme.
L'hôte m'a bien informé de sa présence par sms pour que je ne trouve pas porte close en arrivant à une heure inappropriée.
Il m'a expliqué les particularités de la chambre (réglage eau chaude, manipulation clés dans la serrure.....)
J'ai pu tester la chambre et l'appartement, les 2 sont très bien: Spacieux et calmes.
La petite cour devant l'appartement est agréable.
Très bon séjour, bien desservie par les magasins jusqu'à tard dans la nuit, vincenzo est accueillant est disponible. Habite dans la même maison et nous laisse l'intimité. Très bon rapport qualité prix, un petit coup de swifer sera bien. Mais bon, je suis tous de même ravi du séjour.
Vincenzo was a kind and friendly person. I had a nice stay at his place.
Response from Vincenzo:
Thank Isao and the best of luck for all.
Vincenzo est accueillant et sympa, tout à l'image de sa maison. J'y reviendrai sans hésiter si l'occasion se présente.
Le studio est vraiment sympa : agréable, lumineux, pratique... et bien situé !
Vincenzo est très accueillant, dommage que mon emploi du temps ne nous ai pas permis d'échanger d'avantage.
Je recommande !
Response from Vincenzo:
Merci Marine,bonne chance pour tout et à très bien tôt.
Wonderful room in a beautiful house, very clean and very silent. Vincenzo is also very kindly. We stayed at St. Denis because of an Exhibition, but St. Denis is not our prefered City, but Paris is not far with the Metro.
Thank you very much!
