We had a wonderful stay at Maya and Karol's apartment. Karol was there to give us the key on the first day, and Maya was at the other end of the telephone to help. Infact, on our last day at the apartment (we stayed 6 nights), we left our suitcases at Karol's work 'til late.
The apartment was very clean and very adequate, bright and well furnished, the bed was very comfortable. There was plenty of hot water, but to be fair, we must mention that the shower and toilet area is somewhat squashed, although we managed nicely.
Rue Monge is a very busy and noisy street but with the window closed its very quiet.
The apartment is on the first floor up about 20 steps.The apartment is so well situated and that we feel is the real winning feature of the apartment, it's about 8-9 minutes walk from Notre Dame, 6 minutes from the Pantheon and 5 minutes from Rue Mouffetard, so we hardly needed to use buses or metro for most of the major sites.
Maya and Karol, thanks for making it a wonderful holiday!!
No conocimos a Maya pero apenas llegamos nos estaba esperando su mama que es realmente encantadora, y habla español!
El departamento es chiquito pero para dos personas está muy bien! Lo mejor que tiene es la zona! Está muy bien ubicado a pocas cuadras del corazón del barrio latino.
El sofacama es muy cómodo así que no se preocupen porque no haya cama. Ah! Y un dato más, en la esquina hay una panaderia realmente exquisita, no pueden dejar de ir a comprar ahí!!
We had a wonderful time at maya&karols Apartment. The Location was great, near to everything. There is a supermarket under the Apartment and you can Start your Day with a typical breakfast at the Bistro on the Square.
We recommend the Apartment!!!
My wife and I had a good stay at the home of Maya and Karol, they are very friendly and easy to communicate. The apartment is a few meters from the subway station Cardinal Lemoine, which greatly facilitates mobility. For those seeking a central location is a good option. I recommend.
We had a great stay here. The studio apartment was just as described and it's located in a great neighborhood too. As others have said, the fold out sofa bed was quite comfortable. No doubt the best sofa bed we've ever slept in! The bathroom does get a little wet because the shower doesn't fully contain the water but really not a big deal. I never met Maya but Karol was very friendly and helpful. We'd definitely recommend this place to our friends.
I loved Maya and Karol's apartment! It is in a great location in the Latin Quarter, right next to a metro stop, making it quite convenient. I traveled to Paris with a friend and, though their apartment is a studio apartment, we found it to be large enough for two people to be comfortable. We did not meet Maya, but Karol was a pleasure to interact with. I would stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for an affordable place to stay in Paris.
Maya and Karol are wonderful hosts. They were easy to communicate with (in French and English) both before and after I arrived and had the apartment perfectly prepared for me. A really, really lovely couple. The apartment is exactly as advertised: small, but not too small, perfect for 1-2 people; very comfortable and clean; and in the best location imaginable. I walked everywhere I needed to go and was also able to take long runs around the Luxembourg Gardens. There is a Carrefour right downstairs and two boulangeries within 10 seconds of the apartment. The Cardinal Lemoine stop right out front connects you wherever you want to go, if you do need the metro. I kept the windows of the apartment open a lot of the time I was there because it was nice to hear the traffic and city noise, but once you close them, you can't hear a thing (good at night, if you are a light sleeper). I highly recommend this apartment and really hope to have the opportunity to stay there again! Thanks, Maya and Karol.
Response from Maya&Karol:
The pleasure was for us! See you soon I hope, in France or United States, we never know ;-)
The studio was really nice and it was easy to reach. It's located (email hidden), near the supermarket and near a lot of other stuff.
We found it really clean and cozy, the bed was comfortable too.
Maya and Karol are a very nice couple, it was pleasant and easy to communicate with them.
I will definitely recommend it.
This was quite a small apartment but nice, however we did not spend a lot of time in the apartment so we did not mind so much.
The pull out bed was comfortable and the bathroom was tiny but served our purpose.
We found it to be in a good location not too far from main attractions and restaurants etc..
Thank you Maya & Karol.
We simply had a wonderful experience staying in this apartment. Both Maya and Karol were a pleasure to deal with, responding very quickly to any requests. The apartment itself was spotlessly clean with a cosy atmosphere and the bed (a sofa pullout) is exceptionally comfortable. Despite there being a bustling street outside, it's essentially noiseless inside. On top of that, the apartment is ideally situated. We had fresh breads, cheeses, meats and fruits for breakfast every morning bought from the local shops close by (and I mean within tripping-over-your-shoelaces distance), while for other items there is a supermarket just next door. For evening meals, there are plenty of restaurants in the neighborhood (one can cook at the apartment, but we didn't), while a 15 minute walk takes you onto the other side of the river enjoying the lively atmosphere of the Marais. Also within walking distance is the Jardin du Luxembourg, where we relaxed in its not-yet-so-green environment. (Yes, it was also a cold March, so we didn't stay too long!) If you don't fancy walking anywhere, don't worry, there is a metro stop within 20 metres of the front door, which connects you to all the major sights of the city. So, from our experience, its definitely an great place for 1-2 people, whether you want to sight-see, experience the nightlife or just enjoy some well-deserved r&r. We would definitely stay here again.
Very polite and nice couple. Would recommend them to anyone.
A really lovely couple :)
Knowing Maya and Karol for a looonnng time, I can tell you they are the most reliable, helpful and friendly. They are real parisians, but smily ones ;-) Their studio is perfect to visit Paris and the location is great, in a very lively neighborhood. There is everything you need for your stay and the flat is lovely. In a word: perfect!
