About Natsumi Hagita

Made in Japan:) Enjoy traveling and receiving travelers in my apartment. It's wonderful to meet people from all over the world with different back ground and culture!

Natsumi Hagita purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Natsumi Hagita chose Roquette

We bought this property because we just fell in love with it for all the light that comes in this apartment from 4 windows including the skylight in the ceiling. The high ceiling and the light gives it a specious feeling. And the structure with the mezzanine gives more room.

What makes this apartment unique

Quiet, Lots of natural light from the sky light( window in the ceiling)

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, close to restaurants, shopping, cafes, pubs and the metro and buses are right there as well. Hop on Hop off bus is the best way to see the entire city and the bus was right down the street.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in this very charming apartment. Natsumi was there to greet us, her charming manner and her concern for us was very helpful for our first visit to Paris. The apartment was clean lots of natural light, safe and quiet. The apartment is located near metro and bus lines, which are very inexpensive and easy to figure

out. I would highly recommend this apartment.

Quiet studio apartment with great location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment could not have worked better for us. We found the location without any problems and received a friendly greeting and orientation to the apartment. The apartment was comfortable and quiet, with windows facing the courtyard, not the street. It is located between 2 Metro stations which made it easy to access any location in Paris. Thank you, Natsumi, for sharing this apartment and creating a comfortable and functional place!

Simple and very pleasant!

  • 4 of 5

We were a group of three adults and two children under the age of 10. The space is small but we didn't come to Paris to stay in...we only slept there :) The double bed downstairs is very comfortable and the bed upstairs in the little loft is pretty good (just watch your head!) The sofa bed is fine for kids to sleep on as it is very firm. An adult will wake up with a sore back. The kids didn't mind it though but they definitely preferred the mattress in the loft :) What kid wouldn't! The stairs up to the room are a bit tight for people with a bad knee or very elderly especially after a day full of exploring. If you NEED an elevator there is not one. Most apartments in Paris don't have one. The apartment is not located in amongst the touristy area but close to the bus that takes you right to it all. It was about ten minutes to the Louvre. The metro is also close by. We chose to travel via bus so we could see the city more. We felt safe and secure with the police department in the same entrance. It is a very quiet area. There are several supermarkets nearby if you choose to prepare your own food. The kitchen is well stocked with the things you'll need to prepare food. The whole apartment was clean and I didn't mind walking around barefoot :) The bathroom and kitchen was clean as well and didn't gross me out in any way. Natsumi was wonderful with communication and making rhe procedures clear and easy. Her associate was waiting at the apartment for us and met us on time to refund our deposit. If you are looking for luxury then maybe keep looking around. But if you just want a safe and very clean place to rest your head then this property is perfect. Thank you for a comfortable and stress free stay!

Lovely experience in Paris

  • 4 of 5

Very good location: coming from la Gare de Lyon, just ten minutes taxi drive and close to the metro station, line 9 which is good to change with other main lines. Very close to a supermarket. We were six people and despite the apartment is small we did not have problems since spaces are well arranged, including the bathroom which has a small tub for the shower. The apartment was clean and Natsumi's assistant, very kind and punctual, was wating for us. No problem with wi-fi and very quiet apartment, just the stairs of the building are a little bit old and narrow, therefore I wouln't suggest it to carry prams upstairs but I would choose it again and suggest it to friends.

We have been to Paris several times and this was our best stay! Natsumi is very friendly and accomodating. The apartment worked well for 2 adults and 2 kids (aged 5 and 8). It's in a quiet and safe neighborhood. The metro and grocery store is only 2 blocks away (5 minutes tops). Pictures were accurate on layout and amenities and very clean. The beds were very comfy as well!

This place I highly recommend to my friends!!
