We are also hosts on Airbnb so we have a great sense of responsability and respect about the places we go to.
Franck gave us all the directions from the train station and was at the apartment to receive us. He gave us all the tips and was very very helpful on suggesting us the cab service that we used to go to the airport at the end of our trip. He answered all the emails and was very solicitous about everything. A great host!
We had a little problem with the hot water, which does not last for long. But you just have to wait sometime and you have hot water again. The wooden floor can be noisy, but I suppose it is normal for old buildings. The lock of the building's door was not working, but it seemed to be a temporary problem.
The flat is in a good size for two people. It has a fully equiped kitchen, including supplies you can use to make coffee, tea and even meals. We didn't have problems with the mattress, like others said... I think it really comes from person to person.
The localization is really great, with a lot of metro lines available very near, and restaurants and all that Franck says on the flat description and pictures.
Franck's apartment is perfectly accurate to the pictures you see, no surprises. As someone already said, the bed is quite hard, but it's not bad, it's just that it is a hard mattress, took a bit of getting used to, but the bed is nice and big. Sheets and plenty of towels were provided for us. All the kitchen appliances, TV, internet... work just fine.
Franck I met only briefly at the day of the check in, it was a late check in, so thanks once again. He seems like a great guy. He had some tips, and travel guides for us in the apartment.
The neighborhood is excellent, it's not on a main street, but a side alley, so almost no car noises. The metro is a couple of minutes on foot, and there are a few stores 30 seconds away, a grocery store, a meat store, and fish store. So the location is really great. It's not the center, but Paris has a great metro so you get anywhere pretty fast...
Thank you once again for welcoming us in you apartment, we'll definetly recommend your apartment.
My husband and I spent a wonderful time in Paris in the apartments of Frank. Frank was very hospitable and courteous host. Great location of the apartment, has allowed us to explore Paris lengthwise and crosswise) The only thing that bothered us at the beginning of our stay in the apartment, it's the smell of smokes on the towels and bed linen. Perhaps we have felt it, because my husband and I do not smoke.
Otherwise, everything was perfect!
A nice apartment in a great location ! Perfect for a short or long term stay in Paris, especially for young travellers!
The apartment was great. Franck was easy to work with before hand and was very accommodating meeting us for a morning check in. The apartment is in a great part of the city with a lot of restaurants near by and easy access to the metro. I would absolutely stay here again, and would recommend it to anyone.
A great apartment in a great part of Paris! Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to see the real Paris!
Small, cute, Parisian apartment in a very convenient location. Easy access to several Metro lines (with a block or two), pastry/bread/butcher/grocer shops. 30min walk to Notre Dame. On certain days there is also an open air market for fresh fruits/cheeses/pasta/vegetables/seafood in Oberkampf or near the Bastille. The kitchen is stocked if you want to cook and save some money for some nicer meals. The bathroom is very small but everything works. Overall, great apartment. We were very satisfied. Franck & Laetitia were very accessible and accommodating. Highly recommend.
Franck was very accommodating and the location of the apartment is very convenient! It is very close to 2 metro stations and there is a lot around the area.
Would definitely recommend to anyone else!
The futon bed was too hard. Bathroom was a bit damp. Hallways and stairs not very well maintained, but the apartment itself was nice enough. It had lots of amenities for those who want to cook during their stay. Great location. Nice windows looking out on the street, with good shutters. If the bed had been softer, I would give it a much higher rating.
Super séjour, super appartement, nous sommes enchantés.
Very nice guests. We would be happy to welcome them again.
Laetitia & Franck were great guests -- nice & easy to communicate with and left the apartment in excellent condition. Thanks, guys!
