I'm Patrick from Paris.
Don't hesitate if you have questions, you welcome
The host canceled my reservation 14 days before arrival.
The place is really great! the center of everything in Paris!!! i cant imagine better place for exploring Paris, especially for the first vist. Everything is just around the corner : it takes couple minutes walk from Place de I'Opera, where the Roissy Bus arrives to directly from Charles de Golle airport, Bus Touristic starts at this point as well. It will take you about 7-10 minuts slowly walk from the apartment to have a cup of coffee in front of Louvre or in very beautiful & cozy Jardin des Tuileries.. im not talking about that bus stops & several metro stations just 2-3 minutes walk, but you hardly need them cause almost everything is just around walk distance - Monmatre 30-40 min walk, Tour Eiffel - 40-45 min, Islands - 20-30min..
The apartment is really cozy & quite, very light & clean, it has really parisian atmosphere i guess ;)
Patrick was very good host indeed, very friendly, well mannered & really helpful. He gave us maps, guides & books about Paris. His room-mate Olivier was very helpful & hospitable.
I would highly recommend this place to anyone who asked me where to stay in Paris;)
Good luck :)
1) if you are going to cook while your staying - Patrick & Olivier have well equipped kitchen, though there are lots of cafes, bakeries, restaurants just few steps from the apartment.
2) it took me 30 min & 28 euro to get to Orly Airport from the apartment by taxi
The very best position. Such charming company. Made me feel at home.
My flight from AMS was delayed so I emailed Patrick telling him I was late. As soon as I arrived to the apt building, it was perfect timing! He was just about to leave after waiting for a few hours and had left a note on the door in case I arrived without him there. I was just catching him out the door and sat down quickly and went over the apt layout with him. He is a very sweet kind fellow! I am sad he was so busy during the time of my visit. But his apt was just perfect! The location and the layout of the apt was everything and more from what I was envisioning! I do hope to come back and stay with Patrick again! He is a very kind host!
As far as location goes, it was one of the best arr. that I picked to stay in! 15 mins walk to the Louvre and 3 mins walk to Place Vendôme! Everything about this apt was in a perfect location to everything! Very centralized!
My boyfriend and I stayed at Patrick's place for one week. We had a really good time. Patrick wasn't complicated at all and we felt like being at home.
When we had a question, Patrick always helped us. He lives in Paris for quite a long time, so he could give us informations you can't find in a guidebook.
We also could prepare meals in his kitchen, had a good wifi connection, good metro connections...what do you want more?
All in all we can just say that Patrick is a really nice guy (as friendly as he looks on his profile photo...eventough he doesn't like pictures of himself :)
Me and my friend had a nice time at Patrick's flat. The flat is exactly as the photos depict. Its decoration is really stylish, I loved that. Everything was working as intended, we could even use the kitchen to cook dinner for ourselves. The location couldn't have been better, it's really a central place near of the Opera and Louvre. I don't think we could have ever found such a good place for this amount of price! I would definitely come back to Patrick's flat if I went to Paris again.
The apartment is situated in a very central location, just behind the Opera Metro station, so getting around Paris was very convenient. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. Patrick was a lovely host. He greeted us with coffee at seven in the morning and gave us plenty of valuable traveling tips around the city. Throughout our 5-day stay in Paris, we've got to know Patrick as a friend and also interesting insights into the city of light. Overall, our experience is very enjoyable and positive!
This apartment is in an excellent area. Very close to the Opera train station it is close to everything and also has a thriving night life. Patrick was a great host, giving tips of things to do in the area and also helped in planing day trips outside of central paris. I would for sure spend time at this apartment again if/when I visit paris again.
I didn't have the chance to meet Patrick personally but he left the house in an excellent condition and was very easy to communicate. The friend who welcomed him told me that he was very polite so we both recommend him as a guest and I would be glad to host him again.
Patrick was a very pleasant guy to communicate and good guest. He respected the place, left it clean and generally everything was just fine. I recommend him.
