I live in the neibourhood with my wife Emily and mi 2 daughters Inès and Mona (Mona just arrived " weeks ago!). I like sharing what I like in Paris with my hosts.
Location was very convenient for train/restaurants/walking. HOWEVER, firstly the apartment does not match photos in regards to quality. There are road works to the entire street to which the apartment faces (start at 7am week days) which we were not informed of. Secondly the sheets provided had some stains.
House was very easy to find, great directions given by host. Was a few meters away from the subway system so very easy to get anywhere in Paris. The appartment itself is huge. In a good area with shops and supermarket.
Unfortunately the photos are a bit outdated and some furniture is no longer there. We were provided with a foam mattress for the second bed instead of a real bed but Emilie was able to provide further bedding to make it more suitable for sleeping.
The reservation was canceled 34 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My fiancé and I stayed in this apartment for a few days while we were in Paris. It is in such a wonderful location to explore the city being so central and close to a few metro lines. The apartment is perfect for a couple and felt like home to us while we were there. There are a few stairs to climb before you reach the apartment but we got used to them pretty quickly. Overall we had a wonderful stay and our hosts were lovely, prompt people to deal with. Would definitely stay here again if we ever return to Paris. Thank you!
Samy's place was small for all three of us (as I knew it would be), but is totally perfect if you are single or a couple. Samy is lovely, everything ran totally smoothly and the location is perfect for where we wanted to be!
Samy was a great host! He was very accomodating and friendly. I would definitely book with Samy again!
Flat was as described, though a little noisy as it is very close to Rue Magenta.
We have been three days in Paris at Samys place and we loved the area and the gorgeous sleeping room. We definitly come back!
Thanks you! Kind Regards Tekla
El departamento es muy comodo, tiene todo lo necesario para pasarla bien, esta muy bien ubicado. La estacion del metro esta a 1 cuadra.
Son 4 pisos por escalera, asi que despues de caminar todo el dia por la ciudad era cansador. Hay un mercado en la misma cuadra del departamento.
Excellent value for the money. We stayed there between the 14th/21st of may 2012. Very nice studio, clean, you can even cook if you want to. Definitely better than a hotel room. The metro is less than 100m away, you can find 2 grocery stores right outside the building, also 2 boulangeries. Samy was a very good host. We had a problem with the internet in our first day. He came and fixed the problem. We were very happy with our stay there.
Very nice guests and very careful with the apartment
Samy et sa famille sont restés quelques jours dans mon studio. Ils sont charmants, tout s'est très bien (website hidden) les recommande chaudement !
The flat is cosy, with two beds and a nice kitchen; it's located in the center of Paris, closed to the best place to visit, and to the coolest bars! The canal is just 5 minutes walking, where lot's of young people set after work during the summer to have a pic nic with friends. Samy is a very great person, and takes good care of everything when you get there; you can be sure you'll feel welcomed and safe!
Samy is really cool and such a good person. You can make sure he will do the best. The flat is cosy, calm and in the center of Paris.
I like Samy , his wife and his child. He is somebody honest ,cool and funny...
Samy hace un super trabajo y tiene el gusto por el detalle. El apartamento no os decepcionarà si queteris pasar un fin de semna guapo en Paris es PER-FEC-TO. Està en el centro, en una zona animada y muy bien conectado(desde alli es facil ir en tranporte publico a los principales puntos turisticos). Totalmente recomendable para conocer o volver a visitar la ciudad de la luz!!!Bon sejour!!
Samy and Emily are the best hosts you could imagine ! The flat is located next to the Canal St Martin (famous Hotel du Nord) and next to République, from which you have access to 5 Métro lines. Ask him for cool restaurants, you'll also be welcome !
Samy's apartment is great and very well located in the center of Paris, walking distance from Le Marais, Republique or Monmartre. With Samy as a host, you will be certain to be well taken care of and he will make your stay in Paris unforgettable. You may even become his friend and feel like you have your own home in Paris and come back every month!
You can always count on Samy!
This happy and welcoming guy will help you make your stay in Paris the quaintest experience you could dream of!
