J'aime mon quartier, le Canal Saint Martin, et la vie sur place , ses restaurants, ses bars . Je parle le français, l'anglais et l'espagnol.
Das Appartement von Gerard ist super, es sieht genau aus, wie auf den Fotos! Zudem ist es wirklich toll gelegen, direkt im Viertel Canal St Martin, sehr nahe an zwei Metro-Stationen! Das Viertel ist sehr jung, viele schöne Kneipen und Cafés!
Gerard ist auch sehr freundlich und hilft, wo er kann!
Wir haben vier sehr schöne Tage verbringen können! Merci beaucoup
Parfait, rien à dire !
Gerard was wonderful, responsive to our needs and every request, came back and forth to provide us a reading light, more sheets, laundry detergent - even lent us his cell phone: beyond the call of duty and very nice too. The location of the apartment couldn't be beat: the 12th arrondissement, with the canal and all it's wonderful eateries (Cambodian food rocks!) - close to La Republique and everywhere else in Paris. The square footage (smaller than we realized) took us a little getting used to, but we did, and slept well, cooked in the small, Parisian kitchen, good hot shower. A good pl;ace for us for a week. If you really need more space, though, maybe consider somewhere else.
The location was amazing and the flat was decent but there were some set backs. The 6 flights up actually wasn't one of them. It was more so the loud sounds of hammering and construction outside the windows at 7 am every morning. This was not was not included flat description. The old windows did not keep out the sound and earplugs became mandatory in order to sleep. Also, the computer wouldn't allow internet access with information provided to us. We also weren't told what to do with the trash. While these things were almost forgivable the one real complaint was the communication barrier. I am American, and I don't speak French. It was harder then expected to communicate with the host in general. I definitely took a risk knowing that but things were definitely lost in translation.
We stayed a weekend at Gerard's wonderful place. It is a very nice, beautifully decorated apartment in one of Paris' hippest neighbourhoods. A perfect base for exploring Paris!
Gerard is really a good person. He is very kind. He answered every questions we asked, provided everyting we needed and helped us keep our luggage. The room is tidy and cosy. I highly recommend Gerard and this room.
My daughter and I had a very pleasant stay in Gerards appartement! The most important thing for us was the placement in a very nice area in Paris, calm but with a lot of cosy restaurants and cafees and just next to the charming canal - and then close to the metro. Gerard was very friendly and took good care of us. He answared our mails immediately so we had no worry or unanswered questions before coming to Paris. The studio was clean and nice and everything was there, only we missed a bit of day light.
We warmly recommend Gerards studio for your stay in Paris :-)
I stayed at Gerard's place for 8 days and had a wonderful stay. The apartment is charming and in an unbeatable location. Gerard was a great host - very responsive. I would recommend staying here!
My boyfriend and I stayed in Gerard's apartment for 3 nights. Nice clean 1 bedroom apartment. The apartment looks just as is in the photos. Gerard was available both thru text and email and was very responsive. The area is nice and safe. A lot of people who hang out across the street on the Canal until late in the evening enjoying each others company and wine. We can't speak much to the location but it was only 3 blocks to the metro which provided access to the entire city. It's really use the kitchen or TV.
Keep these things in mind:
1. Confirm there is a working internet connection. The internet wasn't working our first night. The second night we were given access to a city wide wifi. It wasn't very reliable and slow.
2. Apartment is on the sixth floor, with no elevator - hope you're in shape.
3. Ran out of toilet paper. (2 rolls).
Overall the apartment was clean and comfortable with minor set backs. If you can look past those then this is a nice place to stay in a nice lively area.
Thanks Gerard and Julio
I stayed at Gerard's for 4 nights and it was fantastic. Gerard is very welcoming and helpful and the flat is very well located on the canal saint Martin and very cosy.
I hope to be able to come back soon!
Gerard avait réservé pour deux nuits. Finalement il n'a pas pu venir. Il m'a prévenu très rapidement. J'espère le recevoir une prochaine fois !
