Raphaele a été très accueillante. A mon arrivée, elle m'a donné des serviettes, des draps et un torchon. L'appartement était propre. Il correspondait bien à la description: une pièce centrale (avec un lit 2 places, une table de chevet, une armoire, une table et un bureau) et une autre petite pièce comprenant une douche, les WC et la cuisine. La cuisine est bien équipée et Raphaele avait laissé quelques condiments (sel, poivre, sucre...). L'appartement est petit mais bien agencé. Le quartier est très sympa et très sécurite. C'est dans le quartier latin, dans le centre de Paris, pas loin du Panthéon.
What a cool neighbourhood! Having spent the whole of September there, I truly found it difficult to return home. This is the Paris you read about. Sitting out in La Place de La Contrescarpe is better than any TV.
Raphael's was very welcoming, and at the same time non intrusive. My stay at her tiny, but perfectly adequate flat was a pleasure. The "loo" in the kitchen might be a culture shock for some, but what the Hell, it' all part of the adventure.
The apartment was exactly as described. It was small (by American standards I should say) but met all of my needs. As others have stated, the bathroom (shower and toilet) are in the same area as the mini fridge and stovetop. I didn't find it be be a problem and got used to it very quickly. I didn't actually meet Raphaele. Her mother in law met me the day I arrived and was nice enough to show me how things work and the grocery store across the street even though she doesn't really speak English and I don't really speak French. I also found clean towels when I came, which I thought was a nice touch.Raphaele did check in with me via email after she learned that I arrived and let me know that I could ask her for anything I needed. The apartment is very close to the Metro and the RER B line. You can walk to the pantheon, Notre Dame and St. Michel's in about ten minutes. The Cluny Museum is also very close and worth a look. I also walked to the louvre, musee d'orsay and arc de triomphe from the apartment. They took a bit longer but were definitely doable. The apartment is also very near to many shops, cafés and bars. It is a few stops away on the RER B line from the Gare du Nord station which gives you access to trains going to a variety of places. I was able to travel to Amsterdam, London and Brussels with ease. Overall, I definitely think the apartment is worth a stay. I would recommend no more than two people. One is probably preferable depending on your level of closeness and how much you plan to be in the apartment. My only dislike about the apartment is really just a personal modesty issue. There wasn't a curtain on the window in the bedroom area and being that the kitchen/bathroom area is so small it was where I wanted to dress. The window faces a courtyard so it isn't that big of a deal but I would've felt more comfortable with it covered. This is definitely not a deal breaker and it may not even matter depending on your level of modesty, but it's just something to be aware of. I would recommend booking this apartment if you are looking for a neat space close to many attractions for an excellent price.
Everything was as told to be. It was small, but not too small for 2 people. The area is perfect for tourists, metroo station is just around the corner. There are many small shop, brasseries and cafes, near the apartement. Thank you for your offer to rent a small flat in Paris for reasonable price.
I didn't speak a lot with Raphaele, but the apartment was perfect and she was really nice with me, she left a lot of things in the flat just to make my stay more confortable, I totally recomend to stay in her flat, even if it's really small.
It's a small flat, but u have everything u need! The most important thing is it's really convenient!
We stayed one week in Paris. We only meet raphaele the first day, but she was very kind and helped us a lot. the flat is really comfortable and the location is perfect!!5/5 Totally recommendable
I had a wonderful stay at Raphaele's place! It was in the perfect location, everything you might need was within a few minutes walk. The size was fine for me, though a little small, I got used to it really quickly. I would definitely stay here again if I were back in Paris!
We had a great month staying in this apartment and would definitely return in the future if we get the chance. Yes, the apartment is small and the toilet is literally in the kitchen (although thankfully the kitchen is separated from the room). In spite of this our stay was ideal. The location is perfect, the price was good, the apartement is well equipped (including a good internet connection and cooking utensils) and has a nice view to a yard. And Raphaelle was a great host who helped us out whenever we needed anything. In short, this is a great place to stay in Paris for a single person or a couple.
Estuvimos un mes y diez días estudiando en Francia. El lugar es chiquitito y tiene el baño en el mismo lugar que la cocina (sin separación) pero separado del cuarto, pero en París todo es chico y a precios desorbitantes. El apto está equipado. Para nosotros fue la mejor elección, sobre todo en invierno porque al estar en pleno centro de París es fácil salir a caminar por la ciudad. Además tiene una ventana que da a un patio verde que te alegra el día. Sin duda volveremos ahí para futuras pasantías. Además Raphaelle es bárbara, te ayuda con lo que necesites con buena voluntad.
We stayed at Raphaele's place for 11 nights, and we are very happy with the cozy home! The size is quite enough for two people to stay, and we did not mind about the kitchen and toilet being at the same area too. For a price like this, and a strategic place too (it is near a Metro rail station, restaurants and a grocery shop), it's really good value.
Raphaele is also a very good host. She will help you in anything and will answer to the best of her abilities.
Hope to see you again!
Raphaele and her friends proved to be very friendly people. They treated our apartment with great care. Just perfect guests!
Contact très agréable avec Raphaele et Sonia et ce fut un très grand plaisir de partager le repas ensemble.
Au plaisir de vous recevoir !
Ce fut un grand plaisir de recevoir Raphaele et Sonia ; j'espère que les hasards de la vie les amèneront à nouveau au Puy.
What a delight it was to have this couple stay at my farm. They brought with them smiles and laughs a plenty, and even added to my VHS collection for the viewing pleasure of future guests. I couldn't recommend them more highly as guests.
