The apartment is in a great location and François was hospitable and helpful on check in.
The interior is nicely decorated and the living room is a great place to relax after a long day out but could definitely do with a professional clean, surfaces, light switches, sinks etc. Also, although the sheets were clean, they were badly stained and a little threadbare.
Also if you are a light sleeper I would recommend taking earplugs as, although not super busy all night, the bedroom windows face onto a road.
The bed was really comfy and on the the whole we had a lovely stay.
This very cool apartment is over 200 years old and is the real Paris experience. It's within a short walk from the Metro which made things convenient. Francois was a super easy going great host. We got into Paris very late on a cold rainy night and he made us dinner and served us some lovely wine in front of a fire which was just what the doctor ordered! :) He was very helpful and responsive our whole trip.
The room we were in had it's own shower and sink and overlooks a courtyard. Everything was super clean. There's no lock on the door but we didn't feel like it was a problem in the least because we felt like we had lots of privacy. Also, the elevator was out while we were there so we had to walk up six flights of stairs but it was great because we needed to burn off all those French pasteries we ate all day! :)
We had a great time staying here and highly recommend it to those who want the real Paris experience.
Friendly and helpful landlord, clean apartment, comfortable bed with bathroom.
In whole I give him my highest recommendation, without reservation. Please send e-mail if you have further questions.
Francois has a large apartment and the room is simple and clean. The private shower is very comfortable. It's a lot of stairs (6th floor), but the view on the balcony is worth it! He has the sweetest little cat named Cachcach, it was a very cozy stay, thank you!
We had a lovely stay at the apartment of Francois & Elsa. The house is beautiful decorated and spacious and Francois was a great host. A great starting point for (further) discovering beautiful Paris.
Francois was a great host and was always available during my stay at his place.
The apartment is located in a nice area with convenient access to different places of interest in the north of Paris, e.g. Montmartre.
The room has its own bathroom, which is very convenient and the option of having my breakfast on the little balcony was nice.
I spent three days at Francois' place and enjoyed my stay.
