Handy location, very responsive host

  • 4 of 5

Our host, Chris, was very welcoming and responsive, showed us around the neighborhood, and responded promptly to any questions or concerns we had.

Positives: The neighborhood was convenient and very lively, not at all your typical Paris tourist corner. The bed was very comfortable, and the shower was excellent.

Negative: The space did not look quite as sunny and charming in real life as it did in the picture, the loft more gray and the courtyard a bit dreary. However we we're quite comfortable there and would recommend Chris and the Artisan Lofts without hesitation.

Chris' apartments always offer a great experience in Paris.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was reasonably close to the metro's, stores, etc. Very clean and accommodating. Had a little issue with the TV cable box and wireless service but other than that, it was great. We would recommend any of Chris' apartments any time. He is always professional and welcoming!

Nothing better, felt like a local.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful! Christophe and his family met us and showed us the mini flat and the neighborhood. He even popped into a hair salon and asked if they had time to do a blow out for me! The back door of the salon opened out into our mini flat courtyard. Everything we needed was just a short walk away, including the metro. We will never go back to a hotel in Paris, we will try to book with Christophe first. We felt safe in the neighborhood and with the two locked security doors to get to our flat. After a day of museum trekking and eating our way through Paris, it was nice to come home, not a hotel room, but our home away from home. Best time in Paris yet. Lovely people, a wonderful neighborhood feeling. Best onion soup in Paris is at Flo's, in the hood. Best take away, Asian Urban Food - across the street. Thank you Olivera family!
