Astrid was an excellent host although we didn't get to meet her in person. She was very helpful and approachable. Her apartment is in in a great location and it has all that is required for a short stay. The street that it is on is close to a Metro and cafes.
The stay in Astrid house was great. Though we didn't meet her personally, she always has tried to help us as much as she can. The apartment is really well located and closer to Eiffel tower. It's not so big but perfect for two people. The only "problem" that we had was that a few days before to our stay, Astrid asked us to shorten it because she needed to come back to Paris earlier than expected.
Astrid's place faces onto a quiet back street very close to the Eiffel Tower. It's in a backyard block of flats so well isolated from the noise of the avenue. The block itself is a gloomy, somewhat run-down slice of real Parisian life and helps you to shed the onslaught of relentless tourism as soon as you go through the door.
In contrast to the shabby charm of the block, Astrid's flat is bright, clean and bijoux: good for single or double occupation but probably too small for three. As always there are a couple of things that could be better (the shower is a bit fiddly), but the overall experience was very good.
She is obviously a voracious reader and you won't be stuck for books in English, French or German while you're staying here. However, there is no TV, but that shouldn't matter as the flat has a wonderful view over the roofs of Paris. Pull up a chair, get a glass of wine and enjoy.
I really liked this flat. We were here during the first few days of June, so weather was great. Astrid provided clean towels, sheets, let us use her tea kettle and teas, and even an European outlet with a USB access point. It's at the top of the complex, about 5 floors, but the view is nice.
There is one queen size bed and another queen size mattress, so I think that this place would accommodate at least a group of 4.
Con would be that there are no blinds in the kitchen and living area.
It was in walking distance of the Eiffel Tower.
Below, there were a lot of local dining places, mostly Italian to one end and traditional French also nearby.
thanks a lot for your comments..I am glad you enjoyed your stay.
Sorry for the lack of blinds at the moment..I changed the old ones since they did not fit with the colour of the sofa anymore and could not decide on new ones yet.
Astrid has a wonderful place and she is very kind! The apartment is clean, cozy, and quiet. The bed is so soft and comfortable. Being right by the Eiffel Tower was also a great bonus. Amazing!
Very uncomplicatet handling for the apartment. Apartment is perfect located (next to the Eiffel Tower, Metro Station "Ecole Militaire and some good Restaurants). For the location very quiet. Don't go with heavy and big packages, because there is no lift... Apartment is small, but with everything... Perfect for a Weekend-Trip!
Consider to look carefully at other's reviews. Every single feedback underestimate Astrid's apartments awesomeness. Trust me.
It's not only supa cute, cosy, homely and neat please to stay in the heart of Paris. It's also a state of the art to do it within 30 sq meters.
Being in the center of Paris is actually a huge deal. We haven't used metro for 3 days, since Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Luxembourg Gardens and numerous other must visit places are within walking range. Oportunity to see Eiffel Tower in a daylight and during the night also quite a nice thing.
There are tons of nice cafes (incuding starbucks for hipsters), supermarkets (G20, franprix), wineshops (nicolas), fromagerie (rue de cler) around the corner. It's like everything that you will need on daily basis.
Also getting prepaid sim from Orange (nice 3G coverage) with data plan will help you to navigate through the city (500mb/20euro). Orange boutique placed next to Ecole Militaire metro station.
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Had a great time in France, the walk is around 10-15mins to the Eiffel Tower max, but we walk slowly..!
A bit of trouble getting the keys from a neighbour at the start as it was raining and he was at work, so a small walk to collect, but he was very friendly indeed and always asked how we were in passing.
Astrid had obviously put a lot of thought and attention into the place, with it being immaculate when we arrived, the bathroom and toilet, kitchen and bedroom all very clean with neatly arranged and colourful towels.
One bonus that we were not expecting was the free WIFI...! this was actually quite fast and easy to connect to as well. Great.
We had an absolutely amazing time in France, and the location and quality of the flat, especially for the price we paid, most certainly added to this. I would highly recommend.
Just one thing to note is to be careful if you have any walking difficulties and mobilisation concerns, as there are a quite significant number of narrow stairs needed to climb to get to it. We didn't mind as the fitness was well needed...! but keep it in mind, if you have a lot of heavy luggage etc.
Conclusion: Ideal location, great host who is readily contactable, good price. Lots to do. Avoid if mobilisation concerns. A must for young students or professionals looking to get out to France asap.
Apartment was in a great location just a few minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. The metro station is about 5 blocks. The apartment is small but just like an Paris apartment and had the essentials. The kitchen has only basic necessities. Astrid was quick to get back with any questions. Upon arriving we met Phillipe at his store for the key which is a few blocks away. Definitely hard with luggage. He never told us the code to get in but Astrid picked up and helped us. After that everything was good. The apartment is on the top floor with lots of stairs, not for the non-athletic as you walk everywhere in Paris and the stairs are a challenge. All in all a great apartment for you money in a perfect location.
it´s been a real pleasure to host a respectful, sensitive and intelligent guest like her.
Astrid and her friends were good guests and it was easy to organize their stay with them.
Astrid was an absolutely charming guest, the sort of person who you'd be happy to spend time chatting to over breakfast. She made herself at home in our house, and was a respectful and considerate guest. I hope she will come and stay with us again next time she's doing business in London, or just for pleasure!
Astrid was great to have a guest. She is very friendly, easy going and interesting to talk to you as well. We would be happy to have her as a guest anytime she comes to SF in the future and highly recommend her to any other potential hosts.
Kind and respectful of the house we highly recommend Astrid as a guest!
Astrid ist sehr freundlich, die Korrespondenz vor der Anreise lief prima. Leider haben wir nicht viel voneinander mitbekommen, da sie aufgrund einer Veranstaltung wenig Zeit bei uns verbracht hat. Als Gast ist sie uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen!
As always it was an absolute pleasure to welcome Astrid as a guest. She is always welcome back!
Astrid ist schon mehrfach bei mir zu Gast gewesen. Und sie ist ein sehr gern gesehener Gat. Astrid war - wie immer - freundlich und unkompliziert und hat das Zimmer blitzblank hinterlassen.
Vielen Dank, Du bist hier immer willkommen!
It was great to host Astrid! She is very kind! She respected the rules and left my apartment in perfect condition! Guest highly recommended!
Astrid is very friendly and kind, she is always welcome.
