We stayed at Mika's split level loft apartment for 3 nights after completely London to Paris bike ride with my boyfriend. We had a great (email hidden) and he was very thoughtful and helpful to answer all my queries. He left the flat clean and having the ipad was a bonus. He also recommended bars and restaurants for us to visit, which were very nice places. We will definitely recommend Mika's place to anyone looking for a place to stay in Paris.
The apartment is cute and charming, but we were really disappointed at the beginning because the apartment was dirty and the smell of cigarette is unbearable for a non smoker.
Mika is a very nice and thoughtful host and the studio is quite pleasant. The bed is very comfortable and the location just perfect. The free-to-use iPad is really cool. Only one downside: Mika is evidently a heavy smoker and the cold cigarette smell might not be everyone's dream. Overall it was very nice, though.
Didn't know what took me so long to write a review. But I have to say Mika (email hidden), really helpful and apparently he speaks english, so language barrier. The studio is absolutely charming and clean. Also, it was really nice of him to leave his iPad. Metro is really near too. Having the place all to yourself is a plus point. Overall me and my boyfriend had a great stay! Would definitely recommend to others :)
We had a great stay at Mika's. He was very generous and left the place neat and tidy. He even allowed us to drop our bags off a day early allowing us to do a short excursion without our cumbersome bags. Thanks for everything Mika!
Mika (email hidden)e apt was nice (i really loved the two storeys :D). The metro is just at the front of the building and the Canal St.Martin area is very cozy. Love the chalkboards!.
I would definitely advice it for everybody.
Mika (email hidden), the appartement is comfortable and even has an iPad at your disposal! And the neighbourhood is just great. Highly recommendable.
Mika was a great guest. Easygoing and fun to be around. would welcome back anytime.
he was a great guest, I'd like to host him again.
