Ben is absolutely a fantastic host and his apartment is just amazing! It's very light, airy and situated in a super cool area of Paris, very close to the canal where you will find lots of bars and restaurants. I had a great time and I would definitely staying here again. Thanks Ben!
Ben's apartment was a great place for our stay in Paris. The place was very clean, location was nice. We didn't meet Ben but he arranged for someone else to meet us at the apartment. Thanks for everything Ben! Erin&Gabe

Ben's place is a fabulous, airy, very clean apartment in the 10th Arrondissement, a short walk from Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est (meaning really easy train trip from either airport, and very easy Metro access--there's a stop going into center of town a block away). It's also quite close to one of the main canals, where there are cute restaurants and bars along the banks. For a European studio, it's quite big, with windows on two sides, a lovely little kitchen and dinning area, a shower tub and separate WC. He also has a TV with an impressive DVD collection, and a stereo.
We found Ben through another friend who stayed there. He was a lovely host. The building was clean, safe and secure. There's a little store right next door, as well as a cafe and pharmacy.
Two caveats: It's a fifth floor walk up. This is very common in Paris--and it's why the place is so light and airy--but if you are elderly or disabled, not for you. Ben has a cat or a visiting cat. It wasn't there when we were, and no sign of cat hair or odor or anything. But if you have serious allergies, not for you. (We have mild ones, and had meds on us, so not a big deal.)
Especially for the price, this is a great place to stay.
Très beau studio proposant tout le nécessaire pour passer un bon séjour. Très lumineux et vaste.
Stations de métro à deux pas qui vous emmènent très rapidement en plein centre de Paris ou vers Montmartre.
Accueil vraiment sympa, Notre hôte nous a même offert une boisson fraîche à l'arrivée !
Je le recommande sans problème.
This is the best Airbnb I have ever stayed at (and I've stayed at quite a few). It's warm & comfortable, a nice wide-open space. The light is amazing. Benjamin is super nice. He has a great media setup—bring your favorite music! The Wi-Fi is fast & the long sturdy table is great for working. The kitchen is well-equipped, too: you can cook here.
The neighborhood is a gem. Don’t miss Cafe Le Chaland, just down the street on Quai de Valmy, for coffee and beer; Artazart for art and design books; and Hotel du Nord for a near-perfect dinner.
I wish had more reasons to visit Paris; I'd stay here again in a second.
2 personnes très sympathiques !
