Great apartment, great neighborhood, great price

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in one of Jean's apartments in rue Moret (a recently remodeled apartment) and I thoroughly recommend renting from him. The apartment was plenty spacious for the 3 of us with a great updated bathroom and strong shower, and a nice big closet. I was afraid that the apartment would feel dark as it gives on the courtyard and is ground level, but it was very bright. I felt safe and secure. The apartment is located between several metro stops. I love the neighborhood - very lively ,but the apartment is very quiet which makes it even nicer. No problems with payment, all emails were answered promptly and I felt that the price was very reasonable. I would stay there again.

"It was great experience ...

  • 5 of 5

"It was great experience to spend some days in bohem apartment. It completes special atmosphere of Paris. And at the same time you can find everything you need.

Especially I liked Cooking Book with that light!

Just two things I would like to notice: because of a lot of things (books, cassettes etc.) there is some dust which can't be removed, and if you are coming by car be ready that to find parking around is not easy!"
