Très bel appartement, situé dans le 11 ème arrondissement à proximité du métro n°9 arrêt " Voltaire ". Tous les commerces se trouve à côté de l'appartement (moins de 300 m). Parfaitement bien aménagé, L'appartement se situe dans l'arrière cours du bâtiment. On y est bien et au calme. Il ne faut pas avoir peur de monter les 5 étages pour profiter de ce bel appartement propre et lumineux , très bien agencé pour deux personnes.
Le quartier est vivant et animé ce qui est plaisant.
Très belle expérience que je recommande sans hésitation !!!
Merci pour vos belles commentaires, Matthieu! Je suis content que vous avez passé un bon moment.
The place was just as described - super cute, comfortable, and a great base to explore Paris from!
Thank you, Rebecca!
Lorin's place is the perfect spot to come back to on a Paris visit. I met my parents and sister there and we felt right at home in the apartment with more than enough space for all of us and all the amenities we could need (dishwasher, washing machine, wifi, the works). We loved opening the windows to the light/air of the city in the mornings as we sipped our coffee and listened to the church bells. The neighborhood is also wonderful- a quick walk to so much but a rare quiet at night to get some solid sleep. We fell in love with the local coffee shops, bakeries, and cafes and enjoyed exploring a true Parisian neighborhood that wasn't overflowing with tourists like so many of them.
Thanks for the very kind words, Alex! Come back any time...
This apartment was everything we were looking for: comfortable, convenient, clean and very quiet at night.
Lorin was very quick to respond to our questions and queries via email and we felt home the minute we stepped in. We were welcome in front of the building and showed around the apartment before being handed over the keys.
The location is great and minutes from bars, restaurants, grocery stores and public transportation. The amenities in the apartment such as the washer are also very convenient while travelling with an infant.
All in all, a great place to stay when in Paris.
Thank you for the very nice comments, Olivier. Please feel welcome back anytime!
Beautiful, well designed apartment located a couple blocks from the Voltaire metro stop and minutes away from many of the highlights of Paris. I am so glad we stayed here!
We had a minor logistical hiccup during checkin, and within minutes Lorin was on the phone with me making sure that things had worked out and that we were happy. His high standards and dedication to customer service were much appreciated.
I can't recommend this lovely apartment highly enough. Ideally located, well appointed, and well managed. We'll definitely be back!
Thank you, Karissa! So glad everything worked out well, and that you had a good stay. Please do come back anytime!
We had a wonderful week in Lorin's apartment. The apartment was very convenient to the Metro (think a block away!) and therefore all areas of Paris. It was large and comfortable with more than enough room for me and my 6 year old daughter, as well as my parents. The neighborhood was also very charming, and felt like a real community as opposed to an area catering to tourists. We would most certainly return! Thank you to Lorin and his family for sharing their family home with us!
We're very happy that you had a good stay, Jennifer! Thank you, and please come back any time.
it was a great experience for us. The room was awesome and the location itself was really great.
Thank you, Paul!
We really enjoyed this apartment. Everything was in great condition as described, very comfortable and cosy. The location was excellent, very close to a metro stop with plenty of amenities close by. Lorin was very give my of his time and quick to respond to any query. The guestbook was very useful, especially for someone looking to see a bit of the real Paris, not just the touristy stuff. It was very clean and was fully equipped for all cooking needs. I would definitely recommend this place and this host for anyone looking for a hassle free air bnb experience.
Thank you, Dave!
Lorin was an excellent host for our Paris stay. The apartment was incredibly cute, easy to get to, and stocked full of the essentials. He was very easy to communicate with before our arrival and during our stay and helped to facilitate an early checkin with his local apartment manager. He was also kind enough to provide a detailed apartment guide with instructions on how to operate everything and a list of nearby markets and restaurants and sights. The apartment was very conveniently located near the Voltaire metro. I will definitely stay again the next time I am in Paris.
Thank you, Emmanuelle! You're definitely welcome back anytime.
This little apartment is absolutely terrific! And perhaps I shouldn't say little- as a solo traveler this apartment was very spacious for me! I absolutely loved it and would recommend it without hesitation. Excellent location and even hiking up the five flights of stairs isn't a bother because the apartment is your perfect home away from home!
If you are lucky enough to rent this from Lorin- do it, you will not regret it.
Thanks, Laura! I'm very happy you had a good stay.
Just great! Please come back soon!
I stayed in Edith and Lorin's flat on rue Petion for three months, and it was a fantastic way to experience Paris. You wake up with the neighborhood, eat warm croissants for breakfast, buy groceries from the family shops near Place Leon Blum, and travel by foot or by using the Voltaire metro station half a block away. The flat has several different living spaces, hundreds of TV channels in dozens of languages, excellent internet, and many interesting books. I would still be there if my visa allowed.
I stayed at rue Petion for one year and loved it! The apartment was perfectly suited for me with its tasteful decor and ample space for cooking and working. The apartment is located in a neighborhood with everything and it's all within short walking distance: butcher, bakery, cheese shop, wine shop, grocery store, great restaurants and a metro station. I highly recommend rue Petion; it made my year in Paris a true Parisian experience.
Lorin and his wife Edith are great. They are warm and friendly and so eager to make sure that your stay in Paris is as comfortable as possible. The apartment on Rue Petion is totally adorable. Whoever decorated it has excellent taste. It's comfortable, fully equipped, and very quiet. It's got great big windows onto the courtyard with a view of the Parisian rooftop with chimneys. It's also centrally located and convenient for pretty much all the interesting things Paris has to offer, including an amazing market at Bastille and great small stores (butcher, cheese, bakery) on the street around the corner. We can't recommend the apartment and Lorin and Edith enough.
