Great studio apartment, perfect location. Republique metro stop is 5 min walking away. Very "Brooklyn/Williamsburg" vibe, lots of hipsters and outdoor cafe's.
The apartment is completely renovated, all new appliances. 6th floor walk up. Highly recommend for young people. Right by Oberkampf to go out and not far from Canal St. Martin.
Antoine was a fantastic host with a beautifully finished and very cosy apartment.
The location couldn't be better if you are looking for a Marais base.
I'd definitely stay again!
First off, this apartment is lovely. It is in a wonderful neighbourhood in Paris, is light and has nice views, is comfortable and recently renovated.
I would return time and again (as I come to Paris regularly) if it were not for the unreliability and attitude of the host. Before booking this property, I emailed the host to ask if I could drop off my bags at 1215pm and then check in later because I had an afternoon meeting. My first email was not answered but after a second follow-up email, he confirmed that I could leave my bags in a closet until check-in time so I booked the property. Twelve hours before my departure, I had still received no information about the property address, so I sent another follow up. To this I received an erratic series of emails the first of which simply said "I did reply to your email." In the AirBnB email log, there are no emails from him, but even if there were, this defensive manner is not necessary or constructive. Moreover, though I had booked on the condition that I could drop off my bag at 1215, he now said he would meet me at 1245 without any apology for the rescheduling or possible inconvenience this may have caused. I managed to rearrange my schedule, and the owner's mother met me at the flat at 1245 and was very nice and welcoming.
The second host issue was that I returned to the flat at 1030pm to find that the heat was not working and it was freezing. There was no information sheet in the flat with basic details of how to turn on the heat, so I spent half an hour looking around to try to find the switch and rechecking the radiators. When I finally gave up and emailed the owner, he replied quickly which was good but his tone and aggressive manner was unbelievable. It reminded me of the manner in which waitstaff in the occasional Parisian cafe treat their customers -they are clearly having a bad day and you do not deserve to be in the restaurant even though you are a perfectly civil paying customer. When I suggested the flat owner include an information sheet for guests, he replied "I cannot control EVERYTHING, sh*t happens" without the *. I agree that things happen and the problem was eventually resolved, but this manner of speaking to a guest is uncalled for. If you can manage to avoid much interaction with the owner, the flat is worth a visit, but be forewarned.
First off - the apartment is situated in the amazing neighborhood of Le Marais, with all sorts of delicious eats and unique shopping experiences just around the corner. Check out The Broken Arm just down the street as a perfect example.
The apartment was *every* bit as beautiful in person as it is in pictures, everything was spotlessly clean, and Antoine was easy to contact and very patient with me as I struggled with jet lag and couldn't even figure out how to open the door.
Thanks to Antoine for a great stay. I can't wait to come back.
Antoine was very sweet and helpful both in the lead up to and during our stay. A lovely apartment in a great area - thank you!
This was my first time in Paris and first experinace with airbnb and I'm so glad I picked this appartmant. Antoine was amazing host, that contacted me several times before we arrived. We haven't met him, but I knew that if I had any quiestions he'll answer them ASAP. Antoine was also really helpful on our last day by allowing us to store our bags in his storage cupboard until our evening train and was very flexible in regards to checking out time, so we didn't feel rushed. His instructions were clear and simple and the flat was just as it is on the pictures. It's a perfect place for a romantic getaway in a lovely and quiet neighborhood. As its located on the top floor you're awaken by the sun and the birds. It's super close to lots of lovely shops, restaurants and only a stroll away to Notre-Dame, Louvre and Pompidou centre. I would recommend this place to anyone who's looking to stay in authentic Parisian appartment. So much better and cheaper then hotels. Thanks to Antoine my first stay in Paris was wonderful, I would definitely visit again and stay in this flat.
It was a really pleasant stay in Antoine's flat! Perfect location and there are lots of restaurant bars boutiques around. The flat is located on the top floor, you wake up with sunshine and beautiful sky view Shame I didn't meet Antoine this time, but he has been really helpful and welling to answer all my questions about the flat. Would definitely recommend to anyone
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjours dans l'appartement d'antoine, il est propre et tous le nécessaires y est présent. De plus, Antoine a pris le temps de répondre a mes questions et offre un service hors pairs!
A wonderfully located apartment in the best part of Paris. The flat has everything you need and we would stay again. We had some difficulty getting into the flat without Antoine there but otherwise throughly enjoyed the experience.
Antoine was a fantastic host - ensuring we had all the information via email before our arrival and was in constant contact with us despite not being there personally to greet us.
The apartment was genuinely beautiful, light and being on the 6th floor meant it had a great view - kept very clean and tidy with fresh linens and towels for us (even toothbrushes :) should we have needed them). Antoine even kindly left us some tea.
It is in a perfect neighbourhood - Le Marais - surrounded by some lovely bars, cafes and restaurants as well as shopping and cultural sites close by.
We also requested a late check-out as our Eurostar was not until the evening and this saved us dragging our luggage around for the day. Antoine very kindly accommodated our request and even offered later if we needed!
When I next come to Paris I will certainly be staying here if I can! Thanks again for hosting us, Antoine :)
Je n'ai pas eu l'occasion de rencontrer Antoine, car il est arrivé beaucoup plus tard que l'heure fixée.
Mis à part cela, mon appartement était propre, rien à redire.
Very cool guest - calm and easy going. Would recommend to host Antoine 100%!
Antoine è stato un ospite cortese, pulito e preciso!
Understanding and flexible guests
I did not meet Antoine and her company. They arrived very late and had some problems because it was dark. Other than that no problems.
She is a very calm and good mannered guest, so I definitely recommend her to every host in this site.
