Wonderful location (close to three metro stations, including the République interchange station), easy walk to the restaurants and bars of Le Marais. It's also a fairly easy walk (20 min) to the touristy areas around Notre Dame. The apartment itself is very Parisian - small, simple, quirky yet comfortable. We loved it. But please be aware that it's up three flights of steep stairs and that it's quite dark inside the apartment, since it faces onto a small internal courtyard. As other reviewers have mentioned, the WiFi is a bit hit and miss, so if you need a stable internet connection you may be out of luck. Isabelle is a lovely host and made us feel very welcome after a near-30-hour journey from Australia. Definitely recommended.
Isabelle was prompt in her responses to our questions and gave thorough information about her place and about Paris in general. The location is great - very close to major metro train lines and is only about a 20 minute walk from the Louvre and other major attractions along the Seine. Great restaurants in the neighbourhood and multiple grocery stores and brasseries to get fresh morning and afternoon pastries.
The place was very comfortable and had all of the things we were looking for; it was great to live like a Parisian instead of staying in a hotel where the experience would have still been great, yet different. We travelled with our five month old infant and found the place was perfect to accommodate her needs as well. It was a great stay overall and we'd recommend Isabelle's flat to anyone.
Isabelle is very gracious and responsive. The flat is quite pleasant- relatively spacious, with a comfortable living room. It is well located, close to Metro stations Temple and Republique, and about a 20 minute walk from Notre Dame. We didn't spend a lot of time at the flat, but for a short tourist visit it was a great place. It's on the top floor of a 3 story walk-up, with large windows that open onto small courtyard/shaft space. The wifi was uneven, but we managed. Neighborhood was good, with a bakery/cafe nearby on Rue Turbigo and Rue Volta, and a supermarket open late (but closed Sunday) on same corner. Ate meals mostly in other neighborhoods, but Ya Lamai (Thai) nearby on Rue Du Petit-Thouars was good and relatively inexpensive. If you are planning to cook, the flat's kitchen is pretty well equipped for the basics. Highly recommend this place!
Isabelle's apartment is well-located, within walking distance of a lot of neighborhoods in the heart of Paris. It's pretty much as it looks in the photos: small, but with all the kitchen necessities guests are likely to need, and it was very clean with plenty of room for our things. But it doesn't get a lot of light, even with the windows open, and when they're open cigarette smoke often comes in from the neighbors. Also, the WiFi is a free service that wasn't very reliable during our stay.
Isabelle and the apartment were both fantastic. It was in a great part of town and we loved staying there! We would definitely stay again!
Absolut super - außerordentlich gut gelegen, nicht nur wegen der hervorragenden Metro-Anbindung, sondern weil viele der Paris-Highlights für Touristen zu Fuß erreichbar sind. Ruhige Nebenstraße in einem lebendigen "quartier", Lebensmittelläden in der Nähe, ein ausgezeichneter Bäcker... Geräuscharmes, stilvolles, geschichtsträchtiges und sehr authentisch eingerichtete Wohnung mit Komplettausstattung für den Reisenden - Haarfön, Schreibutensilien, Nähzeug, Schuhputzzeug, Spielkarten, Regenschirm... Was man brauchen kann, auf einer Reise, aber nicht unbedingt mitschleppen will. Und sehr, sehr sauber! Kühl im Sommer, erfrischend, wenn es draußen richtig heiß ist.
En somme: Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt, habe ausgezeichnet geschlafen und würde jederzeit wieder bei Isabelle wohnen wollen!
The apartment is really nice and Isabelle was super friendly even though we were late to our meeting point due to traffic :) Thanks Isabelle.
My girlfriend and I stayed for 3 nights at Isabelles apartment. We had a great stay! It's cosy and clean, in a nice neighborhood, and Isabelle is very friendly and helpful. We wood recommend this to everyone looking for a great hide out during your stay in Paris. Price/quality is perfect.
