The place was quaint and located in a very vibrant neighbourhood. Frank was a gracious host and was available when needed. One regret was the lack of natural lighting.
Frank is very nice and helpful. He made sure the apartment had everything we needed, and that we had a good understanding of how to get around the city, how to use everything in the apartment, and even hailed us a cab to get back to the airport. He really went above and beyond for us. The apartment was perfect for us and the location couldn't have been better. Everything that we wanted to see was within walking distance.
L'appartamento è in una zona centrale. Zone di interesse come il Louvre o Notre Dame sono raggiungibili a piedi in 15/20 minuti. Comunque ci sono due fermate della metro a 5 minuti a piedi per poter girare comodamente tutta la città. E' molto piccolo e adatto a chi vuole solo avere un punto d'appoggio. diverso è se si vuole poter cucinare. l'angolo cottura è molto piccolo ma dotato di ogni confort: bollitore, macchina del caffè, tostapane sono alcuni degli elettrodomestici messi a disposizione. E' presente un letto matrimoniale raggiungibile attraverso una scala. coperte e biancheria in quantità. è possibile anche utilizzare gratuitamente wifi o fare chiamate internazionali verso numeri fissi. In generale l'appartamento è pulito e il proprietario, Frank, è veramente una persona molto disponibile. Al nostro arrivo ci ha fatto accogliere dalla mamma che parla italiano. E' una location che consiglio a coppie giovani.
It matches its description and I’d heartily recommend it. I had a great time staying in this little apartment. It has everything you need – bathroom, shower, bed, bedding, linens, towels,, coffee maker, love seat, hide a bed, loft bed, large toaster oven, refrigerator, two burner stove, heater, windows (onto air shafts), foldout table, two chairs, free telephone, tv. The high speed Wi-Fi internet was great. I did three days of work remotely for my job by connecting in via computer.
It was quiet from noise of neighbors. And zero street noise because it's on the inside and on a quiet street at that. There may have been some early to mid-evening bustling and conversation of neighbors, but I usually have earplugs and/or a white noisemaker app going, so I don't notice those things anyway.
I found the loft bed decent but a little lumpy (although I'm 50 years old so a bit of a prima donna when it comes to beds. The younger need not fear). But I put the hide a bed mattress layer on top and that worked perfectly. I could also have called/emailed Frank and I'm sure he would have rescued me since he clearly wants to provide a great stay for his guests.
Frank is always immediately responsive, helpful, and clear in his emails before, during, and after making arrangements. That instantly won me over in my apartment shopping. And throughout he was wonderfully helpful. I emailed him and he emailed right back with very little delay, and likewise with phone calls. He speaks perfect English. Payment arrangements were clear and understandable and trustworthy.
The neighborhood could hardly be bette. From a touristic point of view, you can walk to the Pompidou Center in 5 minutes, Picasso museum in 10 minutes, Notre Dame in 12 minutes, Shakespeare and Company bookstore in 15 minutes, the Louvre in 20 or so minutes. . From a practical point of view, the neighborhood has a bunch of great affordable places to eat (Lebanese, Japanese, Chinese, French), take a way traiteurs (delis), great boulangeries every few blocks, cafes. Also grocery stores and pharmacies three blocks away, and coin operated laundromats two blocks away.
Just as described. Nice small apartment in a great location. Close to all shopping, groceries, places to eat and drink. Owner was helpful and answered any questions we had. Would recommend!
"Nice, small flat for one or two people in an area convenient for tourists. Very quiet street, great new windows on two walls block out all exterior noises. Not an upscale neighborhood, but up and coming. Lots of food choices and shopping nearby. Don't expect the Ritz, but rather a quaint, quiet place to call home during your visit to Paris. Owner is very nice guy, very helpful. Good value."
