We had a very nice stay at Goerge's appartement. His friend Davide welcomed us at the flat and showed everything important. The flat has everything you need for a short journey - a big bathroom, a small kitchen, a nice and comfort bed and wi-fi. We can recommend it! Thanks Goerge & Davide. Cheers
We stayed in George's fantastic apartment over the christmas period for 4 nights. It isn't in central Paris however it is right next door to the main station, Gare du Nord, about a 5 minute walk maximum, which makes it super easy to get around Paris as well as the perfect location if you are arriving via the Eurostar and/or leaving to go via train to the Netherlands etc like us afterwards. The apartment is small but perfect for a couple. It is nice and refurbished, was perfectly clean and very cozy. George (email hidden), even though he was out of town he made sure his friend was there to check us in, emailed regularly and left us a personalised note with instructions on how to get around the city as well as recommending a delicious bakery to visit around the road that we would never have found otherwise - no baguettes of pain aux chocolats compared after going here everyday! There is a supermarket right around the corner which was handy since we could use George's kitchen to cook breakfast each morning. The bed was really comfortable and the apartment was really warm during the freezing temperatures! We cannot recommend George's place enough as a place to base yourself from to explore Paris.
We had a great stay ! everything went perfect.
I'll recommend it to everyone.
I was there with my wife and 8 yo son. We knew that flats in Paris is small so Giorgio's flat didn't surprise us. Flat is small and comfort. It is better for pair, but fitable for three and even may be four.
Flat was clean. It is 1-st floor (second in Russian and American ways:)). WiFi unlim but you may have only one connection at once. I also couldn't swith on TV-box (may be it's my fault, I don't know) otherwise I don't like TV anyway ))).
Giorgio wasn't in Paris when we were there, but we had absolutly no problems. His friend gave us keys and another friend check us out.
Everything was great except weather (short but strong rains every day). Otherwise I hope it is not attribute of Giorgio's flat! ;)))
Flat is not very close to Metro (for Paris) - about 5-7 minuts by walk from three different stations. But it stay on comfort Metro lines - one is going to Montmartre and Arc, other – to the central station with connection to every RER line.
Giorgio was helpful and very nice. His one-bedroom flat is great to have a truly parisian experience: go easily and quickly to the inumerable places this amazing city offers to visit; eat, buy food and use other services available in the neighborhood; walk around (don´t miss Parc de Buttes-Chaumont, very close by, which is fantastic). It is close also to a department store called Tati (station Bàrbes Rochechouart Metro ligne 2) which is cheap and has all kinds of interesting goods.
O apartamento é ótimo para se ter uma verdadeira experiência parasiense: ir de forma rápida e fácil até os inúmeros locais que esta cidade incrível oferece à visita; comer, comprar comida ou usar outros serviços próximos; caminhar nas redondezas (não perca o Parc de Buttes-Chaumont, bem perto, o qual é fantástico). Também fica perto da loja de departamentos Tati (stations Bàrbes Rochechouart metro linha 2) que é barata e tem diversas mercadorias interessantes.
small apartment with all you need for a pleasant stay in Paris. Location is perfect, 15 min ride by Velib from the Seine... otherwise there are several metro stops around... i loved the lamps! i d have stolen the changing-colors one! :P Giorgio is funny and friendly, perfect host...
Helpful host and a nice cosy apartment with lots of great, detailed touches (some very cool lights!). Couldn't be in a better location, the street has loads of fairly uncommercial art studios on it and the surrounding area is really multicultural, with a massive selection of different places to eat and drink and a buzzing atmosphere.
Everything was perfect in my 2-weeks stay. I especially loved the quarter. Subway connection was great, but I could also reach nice places in a short walk, like the canal, some parks etc. I have all the best memories. Thanks Giorgio!
Giorgio is very hospital and his flat is comfortable .
We have enjoyed various Paris travel guides he left us .
I don't regret my choice :)
Free wifi was so convenient to plan the visits .
Great price for a pleasant stay !!
Giorgio's apartment is a treat. Small it may be, though it is clean, has soul and a great bed. It is within reasonable and easy walking distance to two different Metro lines, and that choice is a benefit.
Giorgio himself is very helpful and makes sure you "land on your feet" in this fantastique city, and I would be more than happy to stay in a home hosted him again.
Comfortable accomodation with some design forniture and all commodities (international tv and internet wifi for free). Great location for visiting Paris and full of restuarants and pub. Not posh but young, alternative, vibrant area with design shops and artistic laboratories. Perfect choice at nice price!
