Close to everything was easy to get around. Canal area has style.
The host canceled my reservation the day before arrival.
This is a comfortable flat in a great neighborhood. Watching boats go through the locks of the St. Martin canal right next door was a lot of fun. Abdel is a great host, making one feel right at home, and is quick to reply to any questions. Definitely recommended!
Abdel was definitely a good host - swift to respond, easily available on-site, friendly and helpful. The place was good - nicely communicated (quite close to two subway stops and Gare de l'Est), within a walking distance to several markets, winery and very nice patiserie. The building is quite modern, with lift. The neighbors are quite friendly too. On the downside: kitchen equipment (plates, cutlery, pans etc) could be better (although fridge, washing machine, dryer and stove are fine) and the building has a problem with bugs (so, despite Abdel efforts to keep them away, you might find a bug or two from time to time). And something hard to qualify - a kindergarten is located outside the building, so the kids might make some noise when let out (no earlier than 10:00). So - this might be some kind of a natural alarm, if you are a late sleeper :)
In general - we have enjoyed our stay in Abdel's place.
Abdel is an old friend who works in a language center based in Paris. I have met him 7 years ago in University in Paris where he studied European studies and translation.
Ever since he has proved to be responsible, reliable and a good friend. His appartment is located in a nice well-known area near the canal saint martin, close to the "Bellevile" quarter, not far from the center.
The appartment is spacious, calm, clear and clean, and well furnished. The neighberhood offers many ideas for going out and discovering the authentic Parisian experience.
