Welcome to Paris
What a lovely place to stay during our trip in Paris. On the day we arrived we were delayed by more than an hour so our arrival was very late. We were glad it was of no problem at all for Gilles and Shelli!
The room is in the middle of te centre but very quiet so we had a good night of sleep.
A lovely place with lovely people and good hospitality!
We had a lovely time and everything was as described. The room was lovely and everything went very well. Gilles was very helpful with great restaurant suggestions. This is a superb location lovely room and hosts . It was our first trip to Paris and will be back
Gilles made our stay in Paris easy, stress free and enjoyable. He helped my friend coordinate with the airport when she lost her bag, he set up a lovely french breakfast for us everyday and was always available and approachable. Highly recommend his lovely room, very central and would definitely stay there again!
Gilles and his family were very accommodating and welcoming. And Tom the cat was charming as well! A beautiful location. Top ratings for our first AirBnB experience!
Gille and his wife were very responsive and were always there when they said they would be. Our room was clean and the location is great!
The best way to arrive at their place via train is to exit at the Concorde line and it's right up the street.
You do have to climb 106 stairs to the top floor and the toilet is down the hall from the bathroom, but otherwise, everything was great! Even though we shared the bathroom and kitchen with the family, it was never an issue and we rarely ever saw them!
We enjoyed our stay!
It was a beautiful old house with a lot of character and was a pleasure to stay in. Gilles was an excellent host and I would definitely go back.
This was a lovely place to stay, Shelli and Gilles were happy to share local knowledge and made us feel at home.
The apartment is perfectly located to see the sites around Paris, it's in walking distance to pretty much everything!
I had a lovely time at Gilles & Shelli's place. The location was truly amazing, and I was able to reach nearly anywhere I wanted to go within walking distance. Right outside the place was the St. Honore with all the shops, which I couldn't help going on shopping sprees! (given the best location for luxurious shopping, you should really be careful! ;)) Yes, the flat was located on the top floor with no elevator, which I was already aware of, but who doesn't want a bit of exercise when gifted with the best location? (and though I struggles with huge luggage and bags, when I first went in Maxim, who let me into the place, kindly helped me out with them!)
I didn't get to meet Gilles, but I met Shelli and she was such a nice lady. I enjoyed talking to her and though I didn't get to see her again I had no problem during the stay and enjoyed the privacy & relaxed very well in the cozy room. I would totally recommend this place to anyone visiting Paris, and I would love to come back again!
The ease of access due to it's location makes this place the perfect Paris flat.
My husband and I had a very good experience staying in Gilles & Shelli's flat. The location was very easy to access, being close to 2 metro stations, and truly in the center of Paris. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by their daughter, who showed up around the apartment, and gave us some helpful advice on nearby parks to picnic and nap. We met Gilles when we returned to clean up for a dinner out with friends. He was very nice and friendly, and we would have happily chatted longer if we weren't running late for our dinner date.
The room was small but comfortable, and there were maps and water set out for us, which was very nice. We had no problem using the WIFI. The key to the flat was a bit tricky to use, but we figured it out.
They provided a nice breakfast platter including baguettes in the kitchen around 8:30 and Gilles let us stash our bags in the living room while we ventured around Paris for the day. We coordinated a pickup time and everything worked out wonderfully.
Excellent location for exploration of Paris and an authentic flat. Also very easy to find being so close to Concorde Metro station. Gilles was welcoming and very helpful-we didn't feel as we were encroaching on his space. The room was clean and well-kept, with useful guide books for the uninitiated. Our only real problem was the fact that we're not used to squeaky floors so we felt like we had to tiptoe around all the time, even though this was unnecessary! The stairs are long of course but that just means you should try not to forget anything when you go out!
Response from Gilles:
Don't worry Ben. Since your room was far from our living quarters, we didn't hear squeaky floors at all :-)
I was really pleased to have Gilles as our guest. Such a wonderful and interesting person. Five star experience *****
Thank you Gilles & Airbnb
