Nous avons passé un agréable week end, l'appartement est agencé et décoré avec goût le quartier est agréable et vivant.
Nous recommandons vivement le charmant (effectivement) petit loft parisien de Benjamin.
Oberkampf is a really lively area!
We just happened to chance upon the Techno Parade during our stay here while walking to Le Marais!
An eye opening experience indeed.
We never meet the host, but the instructions for key retrieval and access to the apartment is pretty thorough and easy.
The apartment is a little messy, but we are fine with it as we are experiencing a real live-in local studio environment.
Very near the metro with a very happening little bistro right at the corner. Cafe Menilmontant. Lots of dining options, markets and boulangeries too.
A side note. We enjoyed the nearby Algerian's Restaurant Cous Cous too! Le Miyanis just across the street of Boulevard Menilmontant.
The wine on the kitchen table is a nice gesture. Thanks!
Although we never met Benjamin in person, he was a helpful host before and during our stay! He answered all our questions promptly by email. The tiny but absolutely lovely furnished appartment is located in a nice area with lots of restaurants and cafés. We definitely recommend a stay here! (And also would like to thank you for the wine. :))
Nous n'avons pas eu la chance de rencontrer Benjamin, mais nous avons eu droit à un super accueil, petit mot laissé par les propriétaires avec le petit déjeuner préparé pour le lendemain! Nous avons eu l'impression d'être reçu chez des amis c’était super. L'appartement est très agréable et parfaitement situé. Nous reviendrons avec grand plaisir!!!
We had a great time in Benjamin's flat! We never met them, but they took care about our arriving, they even left a delicious cake for us :) The aparment is really nice, furnished with taste. Very well located and close to the subway.
We really enjoyed staying at Benjamin’s apartment! The apartment is beautiful - even more than we expected - and perfectly located in a nice neighbourhood and quite close to the centre. The whole booking process was extremely easy and James was so flexible. Staying there for the weekend felt like being at home, we would be happy to stay there again!
One word: delighted! Benjamin and Lucy were amazing hosts that went out of their way to make our experience as flawless as possible! The flat was neat, clean, cozy, comfortable, and at a great location. The train station was an 8 minute walk away. They even left breakfast to indulge in! I can not think of a better place to have stayed! On an occasion, we accidentally left the keys inside the flat, and even though Benjamin was 5 hours away (and the locksmith was completely useless), he found a way to get his spare keys to us via a train conductor that arrived that same day! Thanks to that, we were able to access our belongings and sleep restfully in his home that night! Words can not describe how incredibly pleased we were at this and at the overall stay! His home was so chic and our stay in Paris was amazing! I would strongly recommend his home to everyone! (:
My husband and me stayed in this apartment for 2 nights in February 2013. We really enjoyed our stay and the apartment looked exactly like on the photos, really stylish and very clean. It has everything you need for a short stay and it is close to the metro (walk around the corner) and there are small restaurants and shops (website hidden) was very easy to deal with Benjamin and Lucie, we just met Lucie to get the keys, and the apartment was asy to find.the wifi works fine and there is a lift in the building, so you dont need to walk 5 flights of stairs. Thank you Lucie and Benjamin!
I stayed in that apartment with my mum and my grandma during our weekend in Paris. It was just perfect. The apartment is equipped soo nice, every detail fits and one really can see the love for details. And it was very clean. Benjamin is a great host. Everything was very easy and uncomplicated - we have got great recommendations for food and drinks and grocery shopping. And also the location is great - so close to the metro, the train station and the center. So, all in all I absolutely can recommend to stay here
Benjamin and Lucie have a really cute little apartment with everything you need for a short stay. We were not so lucky weatherwise, but it was comforting to know that we could 'come home' to the warm and cosy apartment after a long day walking around Paris, cook up something quick with all sorts of lovely things we got from the market, and relax. They were both extremely helpful, and Benjamin responded to our text messages and assissted us promptly in a friendly manner when we had a little trouble.
The apartment is also ideally situated if you are catching the first Eurostar back to London and want to have a stress-free journey, since Gare du Nord is only a stone's throw away - less than 10 minute walk.
Thank you again, Benjamin and Lucie!
Lovely & considerate couple. A pleasure to deal with.
