Nous sommes un couple avec 2 filles de 4 et 8 ans en week-end .
Evy et Sophie
Evy's place is an older place, but it has a ton of character. We were fortunate enough to have the place all to ourselves for the weekend so we never met Evy but he gave us everything we needed and left us a nice note.
The location is good- very close to the metro stop, but you will have to take the metro. You are not close enough to walk to the main attractions (we tried- it took 3 hours). But the metro makes it very quick.
However, we did have some concerns. Because the place is older, the door frames make it so that the bathroom door and the bedroom door does not properly shut. It was okay because we were alone, but if others had been there, it may have been uncomfortable.
Also, although the place was superficially cleaned, it lacked a good deep scrub. The walls and doors had a layer of dirt, the shower didn't properly drain, and it was just overall kind of gross. The duvet was stained and old beneath the cover. I would say it needs a good cleaning before it is worth staying in.
Good price, but if you can pay the extra for a nicer place, I would.
Das Appartement ist eine charmante Altbauwohnung im 5. Stock (ohne Aufzug, dafür architektonisch interessantes Treppenhaus).
Die Einrichtung ist einfach, zweckmäßig und mit persönlichen Flair, das Zimmer hat die klassiche Pariser Größe d.h. ist klein. Die Lage ist gut zur Metro (9) und den 4 Buslinien: 46; 56 (beide Gare de l'Est) 61(Gare d'Austerlitz-69 (direkt zum Eiffelturm/Champs de Mars).
Die Kommunikation mit Evy war sehr nett und alles lief bestens, selbst das kurzfristig notwendige Teilstorno und die Nachsendung vergessener Sachen. Da er nicht da war hatten wir die ganze Wohnung inkl. Wohnzimmer für uns alleine, was natürlich Luxus war.
Preis/Leistung im gesamten ein sehr gutes Angebot. D.h. unterm Strich, beim nächsten Parisbesuch gerne wieder.
Summary: nice place, great communication, adress to remember when coming back to Paris.
Bref... appartment charmant, hôte aimable, address à rappeler si on revient à Paris.
The location was good, right by a subway. The host made checking in easy and left us a note and some wine and lots of fresh towels. We didn't see him at all during our stay. Our issues were that none of the outlets in the room worked (we recharged our phones in the kitchen) and the shower pan didn't drain at all, so only one of us could take a brief shower. Not bad if you want a place to stay for a night, but any longer might be difficult.
We liked that the place was pretty close to a Metro Stop and that Evy was really easy to communicate with. However, in terms of cleanliness, this place was a disaster (the bathrooms and shower were really dirty, as were the floors and the blanket under the sheets) The bed was really uncomfortable (just a thin mattress on a futon, we had to put boards underneath to make it even and not slanted.) Also, it was hard carrying our luggage up the 5 flights of stairs. Overall, not that pleasant but we were happy to be in Paris.
Appartement très sympathique et bien situé! Le propriétaire avait tout préparé et a été d'une grande confiance! Je recommande cette chambre a tous ceux qui veulent passer un séjour à Paris... Seul soucis: le matelas très dur.
Evy's apartment is very well located: 5 minutes walk from the Metro and a few steps away If you want to visit. We never met Evy but he's been very kind and helpful with all the infos we needed
I would recommend It for a stay in Paris.
Points positifs : Evy est très sympathique, l'appartement est très bien situé, la chambre est claire, il est possible d'utiliser le salon et la cuisine.
Points négatifs : le lit est extrêmement inconfortable (dur), la salle de douche et les toilettes sont vétustes et auraient besoin d'un grand ménage.
Evy's apartment is on the 5th floor of a building without an elevator, so take this into account if you have heavy luggage. But other than that, everything is perfect. It's at very nice location close to the Voltaire metro station, surrounded by various shops, stores and restaurants. Pretty quiet after midnight. Evy is very friendly, kind and responsible, and we had a great time staying in his apartment.
We really enjoyed our stay at Evy's place. It was a nice and cosy place situated not too far from the metro station. Evy was a great host too. He isn't there all the time but when he came around, he pointed out the less "touristy" places which were like hidden gems in the area. The downside was, because he didn't have time to clean the room, the cleanliness was poor when we got there. But Evy came along that night and sorted it out. Great person. He was the best host I've had so far!
I stayed at Evy's apartment for several weeks while studying abroad. He was very sweet and helpful although I did not see him often since I wasn't around during the day. The apartment is a bit older, but quite charming and excellently located; it is a good amount of space for 1-2 people. It gets hot around July, but this is easily mitigated by opening the balcony doors to let in a nice breeze.
Evy and his family are very spontaneous - the booked a few days before their arrival. They are young, without any sorrows, have great kids, are very, very! clean and careful and should be definitely recommended as fabulous guests!
Thanks and come back, whenever you want!
