Je suis heureuse de faire profiter la communauté Airbnb de cet agréable appartement parisien .
As others have reported, this apartment is located in a convenient place. It is directly across the street from Louis Blanc metro stop and a 10 minute walk to Gare de Nord (Eurostar) station. As tourists, we enjoyed a stroll through the neighborhood,but it is not a place to enjoy the sights and sounds you came to Paris to see. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable and quiet. It is time for a thorough cleaning, based on US standards, but it is comfy. 3 couples stayed rather comfortably. The amenities list says 1 bath, but it works out nicely with a shower/tub/bidet in one bathroom and a toilet/sink/mirror in separate room. It was easy to make it work.
Be sure to confirm the lift is working before you book. It is an 86 step climb to the apartment (4floors). That means you will be climbing stone steps at least once a day and moving your luggage up and down those same 86 stone steps as you arrive and depart.
Don't even consider using the parking space referenced in the amenity list. It is 4 levels down in the it's own catecombs...but the lift did work up to the main level! Crazy scary access and egress.
As you communicate with the owner, confirm the check-out requirements. Our instructions said someone must be there to accept the keys when you are leaving the apartment. That never happened and I had to get different instructions from. Airbnb about "checking out" and this required an extra hour of time.
Bottom-line. It was an acceptable apartment to share with others or for a family. Double check in the lift and other details in House Rules.
We spent a fairly rushed four days in Paris and used Christine's apartment as our base. There were four adults and four kids which is the most can be accommodated. The best thing about this apartment is the location. Right opposite the Metro and on a fairly well serviced bustling street. Unfortunately the lift was not working and the climb up six levels was sometimes not looked forward to. The apartment itself was fine. Great beds!! And the facilities were good as well. The coffee machines were a nice touch. We were able to leave our Luggage there for the day as well before we went to the airport in the evening. In short, a great location and a decent spot to rest you head after a long day exploring Paris. It's no five star apartment but it is clean and comfortable.
Good Paris location for Metro & food shops across the road. Entry to the apartment did not happen at our 4pm scheduled arrival time. We couldn't get into apartment until later when we finally reached a very nice young lady with keys. Also, it would have been better not to have to search for bed linen to fit onto beds. Toilet, shower were not clean - disappointing. Unfortunately, the elevator was not working, but this was not Christine's fault, Difficult for 4 persons to climb so many stairs, while carrying luggage. We would still recommend anyone to stay in this place in Paris, Merci!
Prostorný 3 pokojový byt i pro 6 dospělých osob, stanice metra před vchodem do domu, minimarket, pekárna 50m. Plně vybavená kuchyň, funkční wifi, tv v každém pokoji. Bohužel nefungoval výtah, 90 schodů do 4.patra. Bojovali jsme také s čistotou, která se ve Francii asi moc neřeší. Chtělo by to generální úklid (špinavý sprchový kout, záchodová mísa, chuchvalce prachu, 100 let nemytá okna, prach všude na nábytku, o povlečení pochybujeme, že bylo čisté).
Bonjour a tous!L'appart. de Christine est très pratique car elle est très bien situé...Métro juste en face de la grille,mini Super marché,fruits & légumes,brasserie,bistro et bien plus encore!Dans l'appart il y a tout ce dont on a besoin et même plus!Par contre pour les Nord Américains la cuisine et les electro-ménagés style frigidaire et lave- linge sont de petits formats...(a 5 dans l'appart. il a fallu s'ajuster!)avec la proximités du marché on achetait au jour le jour!Les lits sont confortable mais le matelas des canapés sont mince pour quelqu'un qui y dort pour 2 semaines!Si vous voulez communiquer avec la concierge faites-le par émail car pour nous se servir du téléphone en France ce n'est pas évident !
Les français sont très gentils et accueillant dans le building
Bref on a adoré notre première expérience de location
On vous le recommande fortement!
l'appartement bien localisé, dans une cour intérieure, pas de bruit, très grand et éclairé avec beaucoup d'air au 4ieme a été parfait pour nous. Dommage que la piscine n'était pas accessible! à recommander...
This apartment is located in the fantastic place - just next to the metro station. Within 1km you can find many shops with food, bars and restaurants. It's in very quite place, where you can relax after Paris attractions. Apartment is fully equipped - so you can prepare the food without any problem. That space is enough for 4-5 people. It's well prepared for such people number in respect to bedclothes and towels. Only my doubt is clean. I thing there is area for improvement. Generally I recommend it for short stay (up to 1 week). It's very good balance between price and quality.
Vi har lige boet hos Christine i Paris. Lejligheden var ok- dog var køkkenservicet ikke rent- men opvaskevand kan hjælpe på meget.
Sengene i soveværelserne var fine men sovesofaerne i stuen var meget bløde og kedelige at sove i.
Lejligheden fungerer fint- og den ligger super central for metroen.
Great location, very private and secure. Roomy, with comfy beds. We did not know what to expect, so were missing toilet paper, dish soap, and supplies we had expected to be provided, but that may be our mistake.Had some difficulty connecting with the key carrier, but once we got in, we enjoyed this apt. very much.
7 of us stayed in the apartment for 4 nights in July 2013. It was comfortable and clean, and had enough space for all of us. The place also felt very safe as there was a security guard at the apartment complex at night. The metro is literally across the road from the apartment which made getting around Paris a whole lot easier! Gare Due Nord is also very close (about a 10-15min walk) which was great as we arrived via the Eurostar. We didn't get to meet Christine but she provided a pleasant host who spoke a bit of English so she was able to give us an adequate orientation. I would stay at the apartment again as it is so much more spacious than the average hotel plus having a kitchen & lounge is great when traveling in a large group.
