Frankly, I never thought I'd end up living in Paris but - you see, I met a man. On a ski trip - Alps - chalet - fireplace - well, it's been ten years. I can't give you the complete insider's guide to Paris yet, (I believe that takes three generations) but I can give you an ex-New Yorker's guide to this fabulous City of Lights.
Naomi Benamy purchased this apartment in 2010
4 of us shared this accommodation during a 4 night stay in Paris. We were delighted with the location, a 5 minute walk to the Louvre and just a few steps away from the Velib bike rental stands. Naomi could not have been more helpful, especially when we arrived and had to scurry around trying to find parking for a taller vehicle than can be accommodated in most Paris parking garages. Ben Franklin's Paris Salon was also a great price when compared to other similar accommodation in Paris. The 4 of us are used to travelling together and sharing accommodation - my only caveat for others is that you might find it a bit tight as the second bed site is in quite a low loft accessed by a ladder. Perfect for 2 people or 4 who don't mind a bit of a squeeze.
Family of 3 stayed here Sept 14-27, 2016. I was better than I had even imagined. Clean, quiet, comfortable and private space for everyone. Between the Opera House and The Louve. Just around the corner from major store for food and wine/cheese and even department store. Naomi was so helpful and there for any need we might have. However we needed nothing, it was equipped with everything. Our son would come and go at odd hours and we heard nothing. His loft bed area gave him privacy and was so comfortable. The metro is just blocks down the main street and very easy to use but this site is so situated for walking. Paris is a walking city and we were centrally located to so much. We felt safe and comfortable. No street noise, extremely quiet. Our last night we stayed in Naomis studio unit which was fantastic for a couple. Newly upgraded and clean but with the charm of the old building. We would definitely stay here again. It was a magical experience in Paris for our little family. We all give this 5 stars. Thank you Naomi for your gracious home.
The apartment needs some work, there are broken tiles on the floor, the toilet seat is worn out and has pieces missing. It could be a lovely place if some money was spent to upgrade it.
We had a great time in our host was fantastic. We were able to tour the whole city and, unfortunately never got to use the kitchen as the restaurants are so fantastic in the area
I would highly recommend this location in this unit particular.
We spent a wonderful time in Ben Franklin apt. It was very accurate with the description ...very clean ...cozy ...warm apartment. Naomi the owner is a wonderful person she is so kind, warm and helpful ...the location is excellent ...
I enjoyed my second stay in the Salon as much as my first stay last year and would like to make it an annual two week visit! The location in the 1st arrondisement is centrally located; near to Monoprix (for grocery and sundry item needs), ATMs, cafes, and the Roissy bus terminal to get to/from CDG airport. The Pyramides metro station is very near and the Louvre/Opera Garnier are close walking distance. Naomi is extremely helpful and easily accessible. Thank you, Naomi!!
