We are a 30 y.o couple working in advertising. We live in Paris and love cycling.
This is one of the best locations to stay in Paris if you like awesome things. Which I do. It is a few minutes away from the baker so awesome that he doesn't have to open on weekends - there are lines out the door and around the street after work. You are within walking distance of the canal, music venues, vintage shopping, wine bars and a decent flat white disguised as a cappuccino at Ten Belles.
The flat is clean and has a nice sixth floor view, which makes up for the sixth floor journey. Fanny met us there, gracious about our delayed train, and showed us around the flat. She responded to our messages very promptly from first contact.
I can be fussy about my space, so if I was returning I would bring slippers (stiff floor covering and cold floor in the bathroom at night in January) and earplugs. The flat is actually very quiet, but I am a light sleeper and there was an old school utilities metre that whirred and clicked (quietly) every now and then, which probably didn't wake me up but did irritate me when I was semi-asleep. My husband didn't notice it after the first ten seconds, but he's a better man than I am. Oh, and towels. We just assumed there'd be towels but there wasn't (unless we missed them?), but fortunately there was also a towel clearance store around the corner. It's the James Bond of neighbourhoods, seriously.
It was awesome!! Fanny came right over to let us in, and the check-out procedure was easy--leave the key in the mailbox. The apartment is super cute, and literally a half-block from a metro station, and 4 blocks from a major metro station that connects to several lines. The kitchen has everything you need to cook, and there are several markets and a cheese shop on the same block. For the price, location, and accommodation, it couldn't have been better. Highly recommend it!
Fanny's flat is in a fantastic location - an easy 15 minute walk from Gare du Nord, and very close to a metro station and some great restaurants and bars. The flat itself is really warm, comfortable and secure, and Fanny was lovely - punctual, funny and welcoming. Thanks so much Fanny - we had a really lovely time.
Very nice studio, very good location, and perfect host!
Fanny was, to put it simply, the dream host! We contacted her a day or two before our arrival and she responded immediately. She met us at the front door, helped us with our bags, and tried to anticipate any questions we might have. She then sent a tremendously helpful email with detailed descriptions of the neighborhood spots. Which brings us to the neighborhood. The best bakery on earth, canal nearby, bars, restaurants, shops of all kinds. Good ones. The apartment is adorable - cozy, stylish and clean. It's a 6th floor walkup, but that means amazing rooftop views, lots of sun and sky and no upstairs neighbors. When we left for the airport, Fanny showed up right on time, grabbed one of our suitcases and hauled it down 6 flights of stairs, and flagged a cab for us, all without asking. Overall this was an incredible find and my favorite Airbnb ever! Thank you Fanny!
We had a perfect stay at fannies appartement! It makes you really feel like a local.
My girlfriend and I had a great time staying at Fanny's place. It isn't huge but it is really stylish and cosy and the location is great! Fanny was really helpful. She suggested some things we might like to do and produced a really helpful map, she had even stocked-up the fridge for us! I would recommend it..
Fanny was the perfect host - available, flexible and with lots of good recommendations. The apartment was pristine, very comfortable and in a great location - I walked from Gard du Nord in about 20 minutes. There was more than enough to keep me entertained in the local area. The apartment is seconds away from the nearest metro station when travelling further afield. Will definitely stay again.
I would not hesitate in the least to recommend a stay at Fanny's place;
she was wonderfully available and supportive, and had a map with recommendations for local bars, shops and eateries, as well as lovely breakfast on the side for me when I arrived. (And in the fridge for the ensuing days - how kind!)
She's a lovely person, her place is stylish, spotless, and super well-located.
Thanks, Fanny, so very much!
Ibou was great, super friendly, cleaned up after himself. I wish I had more time to learn about project he was working on.
