Young executive, I offer this charming studio in Paris, and could if you want, guide or give you some advice for your stay.
Tres bien recu. Nous n'avons pas rencontrer Yacine, mais tout etait organise pour notre arrive. Facile a trouver, tres acessible et au coeur de tout. Ce fut une premiere experience avec airbnb pour nous et une tres plaisante.
We had a great holidays at Yacine's appartment. It is cosy and nice and ideally situated in the center. The perfect place to stay in Paris. I would reccomend it for couples!
Many thanks to Yacine!
We had a great stay at Yacine's Studio. The location could not be better - it is close to the St. Paul metro station, and ideally situated in the Marais. We really felt like we were local residents during our stay. Yes, it is on the 6th floor--so we wouldn't recommend it to people who tire of walking up stairs--but to us, it wasn't a big deal. Overall, we loved it!
Perfect stay, great host! You've got to be fit to walk up the six flights of stairs though.
Yacine's house is small, but very confortable, and in a strategic position. Only 5 minutes walk far from Notre Dame Church, the Louvre Museum and many other interesting place. Rue des Rosiers is full of restaurants, boulangerie and good clothes shops. Saint Paul metro station is quiet near, 2 minutes from the flat. The bed is really confortable, also for two. During the night and in the morning you won't hear any sound from the city, it seems to be in a countryside! The bathroom was clean and the shower is new and very confortable. The kitchen is simple, but with everything you need!
I definetively suggest Yacine's flat for a couple that want to visit Paris!
LOCATION--5-minute walk from Metro 1 line; bustling and fun neighborhood by day that's quiet and safe late at night; lovely cobblestone street with nice boutiques (with a range of prices and styles) and amazing restaurants (our favorites: Chez Hanna, L'As du Falafel, Robert et Louise, El Boucheron) and bakeries (Maison de Vienoisse, Paul) nearby.
Nice, clean, updated bathroom--and great water pressure and plenty of hot water in the shower. The whole apartment was clean and perfectly ready at the appointed time.
Clear, responsive communications from Yacine; he's great to deal with.
STAIRS--The main drawback is having to walk up 7 flights of stairs to the apartment. (Although the apartment is numbered in the 600s, it's actually on the 7th floor. The 100s start on the 2nd floor because there's a restaurant on the first floor.) It's an old, charming building, so narrow, uneven stairs and lack of an elevator are part of that reality.
Ladder to the loft bed--it's tricky to negotiate, especially on the way down (easy to bonk your head because the ceiling is so close) and in the middle of the night. It's got a good mattress though.
Response from Yacine:
I confirm that the apartment is on the 6th floor ! There isn't a double ground floor, or something like that.
I don't know how you calculate, you are the first one who said that for 5 years.
Yacine was a great host. Easy to communicate with and always very quick to respond. Cute studio in a perfect location in Paris.
Yacine is a very well organised host, making sure everything was ready ahead of our stay, e.g. very detailed instruction of how to get there, and double check things in the studio like heating and windows were in good working condition (apparently there was a problem with the windows not closed properly before out stay, it got fixed straight away, but Yacine went in early before us just to double check).
While we were in Paris, he responded to our emails fast and when there was an issue (false alarm in the end :) he was willing to come over and deal with it immediately. So all in all, a great week in Paris in Yacine's place!
The area itself is the Jewish quarter of Paris, on Sunday you can expect quite a packed street downstairs with music and visitors, I was glad I got to discover a bit of Jewish food and culture. Despite being in the centre, the studio itself is very quiet, as it's at the back of the building, so you can get a really good night sleep. I've never slept that well! The bed is super comfortable!
Thank you, Yacine, for making our stay such a great one! And thank you for being extremely flexible with our check in/out!
With best wishes,
Gabi and Jenny
We really enjoyed our stay in Yacine's studio. It was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and well represented by the photos. It is also perfectly situated in the Marais with shops and restaurants literally outside the door. Yacine was very accommodating and a responsive communicator - he's a top notch AirBNB host. Id book with him again without hesitation, and recommend him to anyone.
The stay in thef Yacine´s flat was very nice, is comfortable, clean and is in a perfect situation. Strongly recommended.
Yacine and his friends were excellent guests... they were very friendly and left the apartment in perfect condition.
Their arrival time was based on the german punctuality ;)
We would have them over as guests any time again! We warmly recommend Yacine.
