The location could NOT be better. This is central as central can be.
Selim met us at the arranged time gave us the keys, as we needed to leave early the next morning we agreed to leave the keys in the mailbox when we left. So far all was good.
What the photos do not show is how small the space for the bed really is. I'm 196 cm high and Camilla 179 cm. The two of us could hardly fit in the space and the bed. Usually neither of us is claustrophobic but, trying to sleep under the roof with no room to turn or sit up got to the both of us. It was like being in a shoebox.
Thus we ended up sleeping on the floor with the duvet as matres. Non of us have ever slept so bad in our life.
I can not in good faith recommend SLEEPING here unless a real bed is introduced to the flat.
I'm not picky at all, and have traveled a lot with airbnb as well as we are hosting on airbnb in our flat in Copenhagen, and we would never charge money for anyone to sleep under these conditions.
But the location is excellent.
Great apartment next to Centre Pompidou. Very nice view and furniture. Selim was a very nice host and everything went very well.
it is a terrible cliche to love paris, but we do! The apartment was perfectly parisian...very small and cute and the 115 stairs to the front door made sure the french food did not turn to fat! Selim was great host, told us where to do laundry, eat etc. Thank you.
We had a nice 3-day stay in Selims apartment. Perfectly situated in the center of Marais in a vivid street. We can fully recommend it!
The reservation was canceled 4 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
My boyfriend and I had a short but sweet stay in Selim's charming studio in the center of Paris! Selim was kind enough to welcome us in person, even though we arrived in the middle of a workday.
The light & ambiance of the apartment are lovely, and although it was small, we found it quite comfortable for a couple. And of course the location is AMAZING.
(A caveat: the apartment is a 6 floor walk-up and the bed is in a loft, so if you're not able to climb stairs or ladders, this is not the ideal rental for you.)
Fresh towels, coffee & wifi were all included and appreciated.
WOW! What a lovely apartment to stay in and what a lovely host. Selim was very kind and attentive and gave us easy directions for getting to the apartment, access, local restaurant recommendations and was available to help us whenever we needed it. My 10 year old daughter and I really felt like we were living in a typical Parisian apartment! We were so close to all the main attractions and there were great restaurants and cafes very close by. The neighbourhood felt safe and we were able to walk around locally at night without being overly concerned. The apartment had everything we needed and my daughter loved climbing the ladder to the comfy and cosy bed. I'm average build and height and I managed it fine too! The shower was good, the cosy double bed was comfortable and the apartment well equipped and warm. The 6 flights of stairs to get to the apartment were great for burning off the calories of all the creme caramel's and croissants! Thank you Selim, you and your lovely apartment really made our Parisian experience extra special!
Fantastic location, fantastic flat.Selim gave great directions and met me on the day.Would definitely stay again when I next visit Paris.
Our stay at Selim's studio was fantastic. It had everything we needed and made for a perfect Paris weekend stay. The apartment is wonderfully cozy and perfectly located.
The bed was comfy, though it was a little tight at times for two people.
It was wonderful to have Selim's kitchenette available, as we had picnic dinners at home both nights. We felt like we were living in Paris, not just visiting!
the second time i stayed i liked it just as much (maybe even more)
Selim was a great guest: polite, punctual, and he took great care of the apartment. I hope everyone gets a chance to host him! It was a pleasure having him stay at my apartment.
Un couple trés sympathique et admirablement communicatif ! bien volontier pour les recevoir une prochaine fois.
Selim is a very nice guy, perfect communication. Unfortunately didn't meet personally. He left the apt. just flawless.
All excellent. Thanks for your stay and all the best for you!
Selim was a great guest. He stayed at our apartment in Milan for a few days. We would be happy to rent our apartment to Selim next time he visits Milan.
Very nice guest. Kind, good communication, neat. Everything you'd wish for. Recommendable.
Selim is a most interesting, well read and well travelled person , easy to get on with and he really enjoyed meeting everyone . He put up with alot of disruption as i was getting a new bathroom and he was very patient !
J'espere qu'il reviendra autre fois au Dublin ! a bientot Norah (Il fait aussi un goulash delicieux.). et merci beaucoup a vos deux pour le bon vin ... A la prochaine !
Although I have not met selim in person, the few exchanges we made over email were smooth and nice. he seemed to enjoy the place and I hope we'll meet one day!
