Central location and private

Really enjoyed my short stay. Nadia was great. The building has no elevator so you have to go up the stairs. Nice area and close to most everything.

Mix Feelings

  • 3 of 5

Owner Nadia is a wonderful host. She is very helpful and informative while you stay in her place. I thank her for her maps she gave me of Paris and how to get from point A to B.

We didn't stay at the advertised apartment because it was under renovation. The flat we used was on a different floor in the same building. The apartment was spacious and it had a home like feel to it. The kitchen had all the necessities you might need if you cook or want to make a snack. Wi-Fi is provided which is nice. The flat is located near many Cafes, restaurants, bakeries, and not too far from the Louvre museum. The Eiffel tower is about three miles away so we would ride the number 72 bus to the Eiffel Tower.

The three things I didn't like was that you have to climb about six flights of stairs to get to the apartment. The building is old, like most buildings, so there are no elevators. The shower had no shower curtain, so it was a challenge not to flood the toilet room while you took a shower. We had to sit on our ass or kneel to shower and it was very hard to avoid water falling onto the floor. There is no waiting for hot water, so that was nice.

The bed was a futon that rest on the floor. I am former military so it felt like the old days sleeping on the floor, but my wife on the other hand hated it and slept miserably.

Depending on how you like to travel, this place will be suitable for some people and not for others.

Great apartment in a central location!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment listed was not available due to a building issue but Nadia was kind enough to have us stay in her apartment which was bigger and nicer than the apartment listed. The apartment is centrally located in Paris near the Les Halles station and is close to a couple of metro lines and buses. There are a lot of steps as it is 5 flights up but that's good exercise. I liked that it was close to Rue Montorgueil, where there are many different kinds of shops and restaurants and is mostly pedestrian. On Sundays, there is a nice street food market on Rue Montmartre near the Les Halles metro station. We would recommend this apartment and stay here again.

Nice apartment, good location, lovely people

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very well located - just a 15 minute walk from the Louvre, for example. I hardly needed all the Metro tickets I bought. As a single woman traveling alone, I felt very safe. Nadia is a delightful person and offered many helpful suggestions for markets and food shopping. Merci Nadia et Oliver pour votre aimable hospitalité!! C'était un plaisir de vous rencontrer.

Such a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed here in September and loved every minute of it. The apartment was extremely clean and had everything we needed from wifi, extra towels, kitchen facilities, maps etc. We also loved the area, there was a lot happening around the apartment. Nadia was so helpful. She spent time telling us where to go, and making sure we knew how everything worked. I would go straight back here if I were to go to Paris again.
