It was my first airbnb experience. Sophie was very quick to answer all my queries before our arrival. Unfortunately on the day we were supposed to check in, the room key was misplaced by the guest the night before and Sophie only communicated through mail and airbnb but since we were already travelling I did not get it on time. And nobody was there to inform us about anything. I have to spend a long distance call from my mobile to contact her.. Sophie or her cleaner should have been there to inform us or even just leave a note to tell us that a locksmith has to unlock the room and we could only check in at late afternoon. In short, we ended in a hotel so as not to waste the whole day waiting for our room to be unlocked. Instead of a 3-day stay at Sophie's, we stayed 2 days only. Room is basic, pillows need to be replaced though and basic toilet paper has not been replenished. Towels need fabric softener, it's too rough for the skin, the floor towel is even softer than the towel(no offense but this is the truth). For the 50 euro cleaning fee, I expect a better quality basic things for the guest. And to top it all, you have to prepare yourself to climb 5 flights of stairs with your luggage. The only good thing though is a fast wifi connection.
Sophie's apartment was really good situated, very cozy and everything was the same as in the pictures.
Sophie was always in touch and if we had some questions about she replay us really fast.
We spent a really good week there!
Romantic small studio,
great price but cleaning fee is 50 euros (too much if you consider that the studio is just 10 square meters and it is not even perfectly tidied up!!!!),
the host gave us the wrong key and we had to walk 4 km with all the luggages because he won't moove.
Six floors of stairs are a lot, especially at the end of the day. Gets you in shape for the Eiffel Tower ;)
For the Price the studio is OK. The position is the perfect.
L'emplacement est idéal, près de Notre-Dame et de la Seine. C'est facile d'accès, mais ne pas avoir peur des 5 étages à monter!! L'appartement convient pour deux personnes, mais l'espace est assez exigu et je ne recommanderais pas d'être plus que 2. Le logement est bien présenté et meublé, par contre, les maniaques de propretés pourraient être déçus (surtout considérant les frais demandés pour le ménage)... Somme toute, bon rapport qualité prix, belle tranquillité (on n'entends pas les bruits de la ville), et cachet intéressant!!
Расположение студии в центре Парижа - рядом с Нотр Дамом и близко от метро, не просто близко а выход прямо в самом доме - добираться от аэропорта CDG очень удобно! Почти везде гуляли пешком)
Жили втроем - первое впечатление - "о боже!!как мы можем жить в этой комнатке", но спустя неделю уже прижились, и все было удобно и замечательно.
Студия маленькая. Для двух людей хорошо.
На все вопросы Sophie отвечала сразу и всегда старалась помочь, за что ей огромное Спасибо!!! пред прибытием прислала четкую инструкцию как получить ключи и так далее - все просто и понятно.
The location of the studio in the heart of Paris - is perfect! near the Notre Dame and close to the subway RER exit in the house - it was easy to get home from everywhere.
The same way easy walk to many different sites and areas.
I lived with my 2 friends - first impression - " oh ! How can we live in this little room?! ," but after a week everything was comfortable and wonderful. Small studio. For two people max imho.
All questions answered immediately and Sophie always tried to help - THANX a lot for this! before the arrival she sent all instructions on how to get the keys , and so on - everything is simple and clear.
The place is just perfect if you want a simple place in the middle of Paris. It is very accessible everywhere, a grocery, bakeries, the metro and shops. The apartment is small but clean, the sheets were new, the bathroom has hot and cold water, basic appliances needed like, fridge, toaster, hair blower, water heater, etc. Next time we go to Paris we will definitely book Sophie's place again.
Fantastic location, no surprises about the appartment, and quick and helpful responses from Sophie!
I can only confirm other people's opinions:perfect location,the studio exactly as one might have expected from the description;basic but (email hidden)ry French indeed,the imperfections made it more genuine ,considering the fact that the house probably remembered Victor Hugo and the flagstones downstaiis might have remembered Quasimodo himself ,being very much like those in Le Chapelle.The walls of the staicase (very nice) was being renovated.
Sophie was very responsive,answering any questions immediately. The written instructions were detailed and informative,absolutely no trouble with the keys if you are careful.
The studio is a great base for walkig but if you want to go to the more distant places it's best to use the metro. There is a statinon on the street but you can't buy tickets there ,so it is best to buy a metro pass for the whole week. It's quite cheap.
If I ever go to Paris again I will stay in the same place.
Thank you Sophie.
I really love the appartment. It was in the center of Paris, being able to discover all the city by walking or commuting by 15 min. There is a train station and a supermarket in a 20 metres walk.
The appart is correct for 4 guys who want to discover Paris, so just being in the appart to sleep. It was really easy to recover the keys and the ratio quality/price is close to 5.
Bon séjour dans l'ensemble, le point positif majeur est la localisation, qui est excellente. Vraiment juste à côté de Notre Dame (en face en sortant !), possibilité de se rendre en 15-20 minutes au Louvres à pied, rue de Rivoli à 5 min, etc. Le métro est également juste ne bas de la rue, à 2 min. Le quartier est sympa, restaurants et boutiques dans les rues adjacentes.
Le confort du studio est par contre assez spartiate, convient plutôt à deux personnes puisque à part le canapé-lit il vous faudra utiliser un matelas en mousse. Il s'agit d'un vieil immeuble, il fait donc assez froid, surtout la nuit et le tout est assez défraichi.
I am so lucky again to have hosted another perfect guest...Sophie and her brother were absolutely delightful....Clean respectful and charming...Welcome here anytime.....Merci Sophie
Sophie and Etienne were very kind persons in my apartment. I can recommend them as your guest. They are quiet and very clean. They go there own way, and enjoyed their stay in Amsterdam
Sophie and her friend stayed such a short time but were considerate and left the room in perfect condition.
