Hi all !
I'll be glad to host you in my lovely little loft, in the heart of the real Paris : boulangeries and métro, Père Lachaise and Bastille... Everything is just 5mn walk from here !
Great, clean, big and comfortable flat, located near metro Voltaire, a gooood bakery, nice restaurants and bars nearby. It's also easy to walk to the Bastille or Père Lachaise from there. The flat is perfectly located, calm and very central, for laying down and taking a nap before dinner.
We had no problems with the communication with Catherine and Ludwig and the arrival went over perfectly.
The only thing we could criticize is the shower (see comments below).
It was very kind of Ludwig, that we could let our luggage longer than arranged in the flat to have a last walk before our departure. Thanx!
Nice Appartment, nice Host! Everything was perfect!
The apartment is awesome, great location, great bed, good size and very cozy. I was not abble to know my hosts, the person that gave me the keys wasnt catherine nor ludwig, but he gave me all information i needed!i loved my stay in catherines apartment the only point i have to comment is about the bathroom that was not too clean and the shower is very small, i couldnt have shower stand up. But i sure want to be back in next trips!!!
Le logement correspond bien à la photo. Pratique d'accès par le métro ou le bus, station Voltaire à 2mn à pied. Nombreux restaurant de tous types rue de Charonne ou en direction de Bastille. L'accès au lit sur la mezzanine par une échelle est réservé aux personnes n'ayant pas de problèmes pour se déplacer. L'équipement est très complet seule la salle de bain mériterait un rafraichissement. L'absence de rideaux peut être gênante le matin surtout en été. L'insonorisation des bâtiments d'époque à Paris permet de connaitre l'activité extérieure mais heureusement, le quartier est assez calme.
Accueil très agréable.
This is a place we could strongly recommend to anybody visiting Paris!
1. Location: 10/10! It is 2 minutes walking distance from metro station, 50 m to a supermarket, bakery, McDonalds and a lot of other shops and services.
2. Flat: 10/10! Very well equipped - bathroom with a washing machine, fully equipped kitchen, TV set, internet etc.
The apartment is furnished with taste - it is nice to spend time there.
3. Host communication - very good!
4. Cleanliness: 7/10. This is the only thing we could complain a little - just one hour of floor cleaning (and - yes, I mean under the sofa as well...) would be a very well invested time of the "cleaning lady"...
Best regards - MP.
Outstanding apartment in the Bastille arrondissement, near Marais. The kitchen set up was perfect, and the loft sleeping delightful. The metal ladder going up to the loft takes some getting used to and may seem a little bit like camping to any tenderfoot. The two sofas in the living area are cozy, and there's enough room to roam in this 500 square foot space so that it doesn't feel like a cramped hotel room. Be advised that the tub with portable shower head is not quite the same as a stand-up shower, and the futon mattress could be upgraded somewhat. Kudos on the clothes washer in the apartment's (email hidden)e location of this loft, in walking distance of many, many superb restaurants in Maris/Bastille, makes it a winner.
This was a great location. The neighborhood has lots of shops, restaurants, boulangeries, and grocery stores and the Voltaire station is a block away. You can walk to the Père Lachaise Cemetery from here which was such a beautiful place.
The interior of the apartment is comfy and the kitchen has everything you need to make a meal. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to bring an eyemask because the lights come on and off outside the frosted window when someone enters the courtyard at night.
Ludwig was very helpful with information about the area and how things worked in the apartment. We also had an easy time communicating with Catherine and Ludwig over email to arrange meeting times.
It's a great base for visiting Paris!
Response from Catherine:
I hope to have the pleasure to welcome Mark and Jennifer during an upcoming trip to Paris
We had a great stay at the Loft. Communication with Ludwig was perfect and appartment in good state. Would visit the place again!
Un loft conforme à la description et aux photos, idéalement situé, une super réactivité et gentillesse de l'hôte. Rien à redire, on a déjà envie d'y retourner!
Merci Catherine pour l appart genial au coeur de Paris)
Très agréables, respectueux et sympathiques!
It was lovely to welcome Grégory, Catherine's son. I hope to see them again.
Catherine and her son Gregory as perfect guests. Very communicative, polite and easy going. I do recommend Catherine and company as guests.
