Overview

About the property

Studio, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom (Sleeps 2)

This 20m² quiet and nice studio offers a rare combination of advantages:

• A perfect location: rue Gabrielle, in the middle of Montmartre district (metro Abbesses 1mn), near the trendy Abbesses street but in a calm location.

• Just aside the gardens of the Sacre Coeur church (1 mn)

• Apartment was fully redesigned summer 2012

• A fantastic view over Paris

Located in a nice 1930’ building, the apt is to be found on the 3rd and a half floor (French Standard, no elevator).

A small corridor leads to the living area. The room is full of light thanks to the 2 windows and offer a flying view over Paris and Parisian rooftops. The wooden floor gives a warm feeling.

The studio is designed as a small hotel suite: a bedroom with a real open kitchen, a small Parisian coffee table as a dining area and a nice bathroom. It offers a real comfortable double bed for 2 guests. It is a very nice place for 2.

The nicely designed bathroom is decorated with white and black tiles. It is equipped with a closed shower and offers a sink and toilet.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Last point, we are staying 1 block away. We are here if you need help, but do not worry, we will not be intrusive.

Neighborhood :

Montmartre is a village within Paris: it combines the atmosphere of an ancient village with trendy shops and fabulous restaurants. Many artists and movie stars live in the district.

As you walk through Montmartre you will pass many winding and picturesque streets with fascinating houses, stairs and wonderful views over Paris. Look for the Montmartre Vineyard, walk to 'Place du Tertre' where artists will offer to draw your portrait and see Picasso’s house and the Salvador Dali museum. Visit the famous Sacre Coeur Moorish-looking church.

On the 'Rue des Abbesses' you will discover shops, cafes and clothing stores and in 'Rue Lepic' you will come across the market, wine shops - the cheese shop was rated n° 3 in France – bakeries and charcuteries. It’ll take a few days to select your preferred “café” !!! Walk down to the Moulin Rouge and experience the Paris nightlife.

On the north side, close to the “Lamarck” metro station is the famous Rue du Poteau Market as well as quaint antique shops.

The Champs-Elysees is only a ten-minute Metro ride, the Eiffel Tower, Le Marais, Les Halles, and Saint-Germain are all between 15- 20 minutes from Abbesses.

A room with a grand view of Paris

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time back to Paris in 20 years. Traveling solo and wanting the convenience of being close to everything was important. This room has an unbeatable view of the city with a metro stop close by. I hadn't known what a great neighborhood Montmartre is, but the shops and restaurants in the area were such a plus.

The owner was very responsive as well. Thank you Jean-Nicolas

Gorgeous view of Paris...but be ready for STAIRS !!!

  • 4 of 5

Positives: Cute flat with a breathtaking view of Paris...was able to unpack suitcases and store under the bed. Kitchen/washing machine set up is easy to use with lots of light and the flat is set up well with hooks, necessities.

Hearing the bells from the Sacre Cour is very charming. Comfortable bed and pillows - it is on the top floor of the building (4 full floors up) so there is almost no street noise and neighbors are quiet.

Negatives/Warnings: Self check in process is a hassle. Be sure you have printed out the lengthy instructions - you will need all of it. The office where the key is located is not easy to access by car, meaning you will walk with luggage from car to the building - then leave luggage on bottom floor and hike several floors (no lift) to fetch the key. With luggage it's not realistic to walk from key pick up location to the flat. Two ubers, one to get from airport to get key - then from key pick up location to flat. This was really a struggle with luggage and traveling alone. No lift in the building and it's a hike to the top 4th floor. Other consideration is the flat is located along the one of the longest staircases in Montmartre - right next to the funicular - so be warned a considerable amount of stairs are hiked in getting home to this flat - I stayed there for a month and it was difficult for me after a long day or work to make it back to the flat with the combination of stairs it takes to reach it. Be Warned!!

The bathroom was a bit challenging - the shower is verrry tiny and awkward to get in and out without struggling a bit as the shower doors only open to enter through a small space. I am an average sized person and I barely fit in the shower stall.

The flat had not been properly cleaned/prepped for my arrival and some things needed attention. The sheets/bedspread were not clean, the shower/bathroom was not as clean as it could have been, and shower itself was broken. The apt manager responded in a reasonable amount of time, had things cleaned and repaired, but after arriving without sleep for 24 hours dreaming of a shower and a nap - was a huge inconvenience to then contact the rep, wait for the respective people to arrive, etc. I was crazy cross eyed tired by the time I made it to sleep.

Overall, the flat is very charming, French, loved the decor, butter colored walls and soft lighting - the view had me glued to the window, loved being near the Sacre Cour and in Montmartre - but STAIRS

Owner's Response: Hi Casey, It was a pleasure to host you. We are happy you enjoyed the breathtaking view of Paris, the decor and the charm of the apartment. We are very sorry the cleaning was not perfect when you arrived. It should never have happened. We are fighting for that with the cleaning company we use. We reacted as fast as possible and the cleaning lady was called for training by her management. The lady who cleans the apt is always the same and these steps should help prevent it from happening again. As far as the check in process, we are surprised it appeared complex. It enables check in and out at any time of the day. It prevents waiting for someone from either party who might be caught in traffic and limits long distances calls to find another. We have had this problem in the past when in Montmartre the taxi drivers who are rather new at their job, are unfamiliar with the streets. Picking up the key should take approximately 2 mins, while driving from the agency pick up place to the studio should take 1 mn max. We usually receive compliments for our for check in process. We are sorry it seemed complex. You mention the staircases in Montmartre. I guess this is sort of unavoidable in Montmartre : this is why this studio has a breathtaking view. Thank you anyway for the 4 stars that you gave the apt. and your stay. Hope to host you again in one of the apartments we manage in Paris !
