Great host, central location.

  • 5 of 5

Loved the location. Very nice host. The interior is average but cool if you're ok with an authentic old Paris flat style. All in all, I'd recommend this place.

A basic, affordable apartment in a convenient location.

  • 3 of 5

Our host, Yvan, met us promptly upon our arrival and was very kind. He even pre-arranged a taxi to the airport for us!

We appreciated that the apartment was very close to the Seine, Notre Dame and a train station (though we walked almost everywhere). The neighborhood was nothing fancy but it felt authentic and it seemed safe, even at night. We used ear plugs for sleeping and weren't bothered by the trains going by across the street.

The apartment was a little sparse (even a bit shabby in a not-always-chic way) but it was clean in the places that mattered most (the bathroom, the mismatched bedding and towels, and the kitchen). The air mattress used by our teenage daughter leaked pretty badly and was uncomfortable as a result. The mattress on the bed was comfortable, however. And the new shower had good water pressure, height and temperature control.

All-in-all, I'd say that this rental was an acceptable, low-cost place to rest our heads after busy days of site-seeing. Depending upon your needs/goals, it may be just the ticket for your stay!

Owner's Response: Well, Thank you for all this information. It is the first time that this rental has received a rating as poor as this one. So, it has particularly called my attention. It has also been helpful for me to make little improvements. I wish that the previous guests had told me that there was a leak from the airbed. I had not been able to feel it after I inflated the bed either. If I may tell you, it would have been informative to let me know about this leak before writing this review. I am sorry for the inconvenience caused, and I hope that despite this issue you have had a nice stay in Paris. Yvan

A wonderful stay in the Latin Quarter

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 4 days at Yvan's apartment and couldn't have been happier with our choice! The apartment is small, but fit our family of five just fine (our three young boys all stayed on the convertible couch in the living room.) Yvan met us when we arrived and helped to show us around the apartment and provide some tips for helpful businesses in the area. The apartment is on the 6th floor which provides excellent light and views and a little protection from the street noise (earplugs and the floor fans help too). There is excellent WiFi and we cooked many meals in the kitchen (only wish there were baking dishes/pans).

The apartment is conveniently located within walking distance from Gare de Lyon (3-4 blocks) with a metro station one block away. There was a delicious bakery, a grocery store, ATM, and many restaurants all located on the street in addition to the beautiful Jardin de Plantes and the Seine. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return!

Lovely Days in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This was the 2nd time we visited in Yvan's place. We love this apartment and location. The apartment is clean and well kept and there are almost everything you need. Yvan is very helpful as well the concierge Dana. The bakery/ boulangerie and supermarket are located very near. There are also many restaurants. The metro, trains station and bus stops are also very near, but you can also walk along beautiful Seine to center. Hope to visit here also next time.

Very convenient and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

The apartment corresponded to its description, and all utilities worked perfectly. The property is clean, and the bathroom and kitchen are particularly well-kept and convenient. Yvan was friendly and prompt in responding to our needs. The apartment is centrally located and provides very easy access to the subway and RER trains. I would certainly recommend it to small families on a budget wanting to enjoy the city of Paris.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 days Oct 23-26. Two persons. Reserved and paid for full thru Homeaway. The photos are accurate. Building easy to find from Gare D'Austerlitz. Old building and apartment but very well kept. Were greeted by the guardianess, a very nice and friendly lady named Dana. Yvan showed up later and toured us around the apartment and its workings. Friendly, patient and specific, very interested for us to have our stay confortable. It is a very cozy, spacious, bright, homely place. Could have stayed there forever. Clean, everything worked fine. Strong wifi signal and water pressure. Comfortable bed, enough towels. Equipped kitchen. Quiet, safe building and surroundings at any hour. The noise from the metro or occasional ambulance/police car is not a problem, I found it part of the atmosphere. Apartment is on 6th floor and there is a (small) working elevator. Middle class neighborhood, no tourists around. Police station and hospital nearby. Supermarket and other food stores around. Restaurants too. Yes, there are people sleeping on the other side of the street, but bother no one, not even visually. Metro provides excellent access to other parts of the city. The train and metro stations need TLC. Definitely would stay there again and recommend it to anyone.
