Overview

About the property

Great access all tourist spots, left bank, beautiful /eclectic sunny /quiet loft

One of two apartments at the Loft 11100. Please mail me for availability. More photos on facebook loft11100 with reviews. This photo is the ground floor apartment, there is also a first floor one, on the same listing. They can be rented together to sleep larger groups of 16+ , but generally I rent the upstairs and live myself downstairs, but I do rent the downstairs when I am away or on special request. My helper and I both speak English and French and Polish, and we are ready to help you get around and orientate yourself and plan your trip in Paris. Each space is unique and wonderful, and each has three bedrooms. Each has it plus points. Upstairs is slightly smaller (even though huge) but it has 7m high ceilings and huge skylights, so it's full of light and warmth, especially when the sun is out! But even on dark days. It has a lovely windowed master bedroom with bath en suite, and views out over trees and sunrise. It's very open plan and really special. There are two other double bedrooms and a separate shower room with WC. It is on the first floor (second US) with a spiral staircase leading from a courtyard with private entrance to the street. Fabulous , beautifully furnished, with lots of original art, huge volume artist loft, with fully equipped Kitchen with grantie work tops and breakfast area, master bath with large bath tub, with additional shower room. Three double bedrooms, with additional platform sleeping areas for extra guests or children. Beds all comfortable and new, with great cotton sheets and feather pillows and duvets/comforters. Great for small or large groups, you will appreciate the rarity of such space in the Paris area. Get togethers, working parties.. or a family reunion.

The Ground Floor apartment is even bigger , with 4m ceilings and a huge kitchen area. One bedroom is on the ground floor with a small shower room and wc ensuite. The other two bedrooms are on the mezannine level. One has a bath en suite and one is without a bath ( the shower is on the ground floor at the rear ), the room without the bath can sleep 4 adults or children, with a double bed on the ground level and one on the platform (bunk). There are two huge floor to celing windows facing south and opening onto a communal garden in gated community and a private terrace, great for sitting in the sun and having a meal. On this floor the bedrooms are smaller, the living space is larger. The sofas are super comfortable on both levels and two on each level can be slept on. Both spaces great for entertaining, though I think the ground floor takes the edge on this, it is also cooler in the summer, although the electric shutters on the upstairs floor help keep the sun out, if it gets too warm. Each apartment can accomodate up to 10 people, though bear in mind each has 3 bedrooms, and many rent with two people for long term with guests to entertain, or families with children, or three groups of two adults. I am happy to help you with your requests. I can help organize parties or special occasions.

Extended Family of 16 (6 Adults and 10 Kids, including 3 Teenagers)

  • 5 of 5

Incredible, one-of-a-kind place to stay in Paris.

Magdalena Groszek is a fine hostess, with good communication and lots of detailed information both online and using text/email, as well as in a book inside the lofts. Just be clear on whether you want both lofts, or if only one, which one. I think my large family size, and initial miscommunication hampered our renting, but we quickly fixed it and had no issues after that. She even accelerated the between-guest cleaning so we could all check in to both lofts earlier (16:00).

We used both lofts as we had 6 adults and 10 children, and had plenty of room. The décor was unique and made this place a favorite with our entire family. Location is a little hidden, in the middle of a mixed industrial and reclaimed industrial area with the actual building the lofts are in looking like an old warehouse. Nice garden area once you enter the are with other lofts surrounding the green space which lets the kids go outside, but still within the outside gates to the street.

We parked on the street (we arrived on a Sunday afternoon, so were able to find two parking spaces within half a block that cost 3 Euros daily during the week) and then walked a little over half a kilometer to the Ivry sur-Seine Metro stop. (This stop is just outside Zone 1, so we used the RER interurban trains to get into downtown Paris, which was between 15 minutes (Notre Dame) and 30 minutes (Eiffel Tower) away.)

It was relatively easy to find with the provided physical addresses, and the required codes to get into the garden and the key boxes were straightforward in the arrival instructions. Departing was also easy with clear (and simple) instructions that let us depart in a timely manner.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Keith, for your kind and accurate review/appreciation, I think it will help other guests situate and appreciate where the loft is. I'm so glad you and your children enjoyed the space and décor, it represents many years of travel and works! I'm glad the key safe and codes work well, I believe it takes a lot of stress of the host and guest as far as arrival and departure times go. Thank you also for being great guests and leaving the loft clean and tidy. I hope the rest of your vacation continued well Kind regards Magdalena

very artsy and cosy place, very spacious, centre of Paris is close and easy to reach by train

  • 4 of 5

We defenitley had a pleasant stay in the 2 apartments. We were 2 families, 10 people in total. There were enough sofa's and corners for everybody to have some quiet time/privacy, or for the group to spend time together. The lofts are very spacious and decorated in a original, warm and artsy manner. The 2 kitchens are fully equipped and fun to work in. The rooms (and beds) are a bit variable in comfort and so are the bathrooms. The place is clean enough and the atmosphere is pleasant. The neighbourhood is quiet, with a great bakerie, some shops and restaurants closeby. Subway is very close too. We visited in winter and therefore did not spend time in the garden, which did seem very nice to enjoy with warmer weather. All in all, very good!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review. I'm so glad you enjoyed the loft. It's true some of the rooms are smaller than others, and it's definitely an artist's loft and a bit funky that way. I made a choice to keep the open spaces large and the bedrooms and bathrooms smaller certainly than the American norm! However I do try and make sure all beds are comfortable and I replace the mattresses regularly and all the sheets are very high quality. If there are any specific issues, I'd be happy to address them. I do have a list of the bedrooms and what is in them on Home Away. There are additional photos on face book. For sure it's NOT a hotel, and the prices are not hotel like either! It's an eclectic artists house, full of original art, designer furniture and super well equipped kitchens, it's not just a rental property either. That is it's charm I believe. I would hope the house is very clean, and I would ask my guests to let me know of any issues. Thanks again.

Bohemian Arty Loft Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the loft apartment in May 2015 for 5 days. Our group consisted of 2 families (3 adults and 6 children). We all loved it! Loft apartment bright, clean, modern and very tastefully decorated - loved the art!. Spacious and had all the modern appliances required. Children particularly enjoyed open plan sitting area and terrace where they could sit, chat and play.

Thank you allowing us the opportunity to stay in Paris! Truly great experience.

Weekend inoubliable

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons loué la maison pour un weekend entre amis. Le lieu est idéal!

La décoration est à la fois originale et soignée. Il y a suffisamment d'espace pour que chacun se sente bien. La maison est parfaitement équipée. Nous avons profité de l'ilot central dans la cuisine, l'endroit de la maison le plus convivial! Côté pratique : il y a tout ce qu'il faut à quelques centaines de mètres et le metro n'est pas loin pour accéder rapidement au centre de Paris. Une adresse hautement recommandable!

Very impressive place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here with a group of friends and we were all pleasantly surprised at how big and comfortable the lofts were. The creative use of space was also a constant source of amazement, as we just kept on discovering new hidden treasures. The garden is also a delight, we stayed in April when the weather was already nice enough to spend the evening on the terrace. The entire place has something of a villlage feel, even in a rather busy part of Paris. There are also several budget friendly restaurants nearby, and a large supermarket. Highly recomended, with a good chance of returning someday!

Amazing Place to live a dream stay!

  • 5 of 5

This place is such a find. We really enjoyed the stay. Everything you could need in the apartments and helpful suggestions from Magdalena. In this loft, you feel like you have come home. Magdalena take amazing care of you to arrange everything before your arrival. You truly feel like your are home. Just look at the other reviews, nobody gets almost perfect score! This is a superb place to stay - much nicer and better priced than hotels or people trying to make a quick buck from airbnb with hidden charges etc. Located in an unassuming building in Ivry, this is one happy surprise after another. This loft was a dream: comfortable in every way, quiet, incredible bath, cozy, with lovely furnishings and little touches that made our stay relaxing and comfortable. The decor of each room is charming, and living room is a lovely sitting area abundant with beautiful paintings. We had visited Paris many times in the past but have never stayed at any place more charming and delightful as this beautiful in close by the city. This loft is very close to transportation and easy to get around from. Magdalena was away but arranged everything before our arrival. The living room was a great space, really quiet and well equipped. Really all positives; go and stay there! The Dream! Ideal place to enjoy Paris and live incredible quality time moments with your family!

We will never stay anywhere else now that we have found this loft! Highly recommended!
