Chris was a great host and the apartment is in a very convenient part of Paris with nice restaurants nearby. We used the kitchen for breakfast every morning. Would not hesitate to recommend!

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!

Clean and compact with a marvelous host.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was small and very clean, but maybe easier for one rather than two. I was very comfortable there and had everything I needed. Christophe was a wonderful host. I didn't get there until 8.30pm, but he arrived quickly and took time to welcome me and make sure I knew where everything was, and to show me how everything worked. Then he sat down and drew a "mud map" for me to show me his favourite places in the area, where to shop and where to dine. He and his charming wife called on me a few days later, to ensure all was okay as we had had a small problem with the TV. The wifi was terrific.

The area is really good. There are lots of foodie streets like rue Cadet or rue du Faubourg St Denis where you'll find everything for your meals or if preferred, bistros where you can get dinner. Rue Lafayette gives easy access to Gare du Nord or in the other direction to Galeries Lafayette by bus, and the Cadet or Grandes Boulevards metros are minutes away. There's even a French language school opposite should that be of interest!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your nice review and details abot your stay. It has been a pleasure meeting and hosting you. Yes the flat is compact but it is equipped with a kitchen, dining area, bed area and separate bathroom with shower / sink / toilet. All you need for a city holiday. Actually for parisian standards, the studio has a regular size (20 square meters) The flat can accomodate until 2 travelers. Most of the travelers are couples. But for a solo travelers it is great too. All the best. Chris

Nice quiet and close to metro. All you need!

  • 4 of 5

I recommend this flat as it was clean and easily accessible. In a great urban area but minutes from anywhere. The metro in Paris is amazing. Great patisseries and cafes that are reasonable . Chistophe walks you around his neighbourhood to show you some of whats available. Thank you Christophe.

Excellent location for us

  • 5 of 5

We were delighted to find that the Mini Loft was everything that the reviews indicated. We had read many reviews and decided that this accommodation and the location would be ideal for us and we were NOT disappointed. The Mini Loft was easy walking distance to the Bonne Nouvelle Metro, Notre Dame, St Martin Canal and many more attractions plus for the shoppers " Galerie Lafayette" is only 15 minutes walk. Christopher was very attentive as reflected in all reviews and was always happy to answer any questions. The Wifi was excellent.
