A bright loft in a real Paris neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with five friends in April 2017. It was a great big open space with enough room for all of us, though a few had to sleep on the couches. There are three actual beds. Something to consider if you are traveling with couples versus singles. Philippe was very helpful in answering our questions and making sure we had what we needed. Internet was fast and reliable. I wouldn't call this a luxury apartment. It's more of a functional, clean, interesting living space in a real Paris neighborhood, a quick Metro ride away from all of the main attractions. Great value, especially when you split it among friends.

Paris vacation 2017

  • 5 of 5

Dear Philippe

We had a great time in Paris. Your property is very homey. We enjoyed the spacy rooms and decor. The fully equipped kitchen is excellent for home cooked meals because eating out for my family is pricey in Paris. The neighborhood has different ethnic cuisines, however we prefer French cuisine (Les Fabricants, Le Robinet) and daily trips to les boulangeries and patisseries ( Pâtisserie d'Eutopie). Taking the metro from Gare du Nord to the property on line 2 , exit Les Couronnes, was easy. Going into town, we took metro line 11 at Belleville station, short walk from the apartment.

Recommendation: a non-skid mat would be safer in the two showers for safety.

Overall, we are very please with the place.

I enjoyed talking to Philippe during the check out date.

Thank you Philippe for letting us stay at your property.

Au revoir

Clean and Bright, close to transport links

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a good stay at the apartment. Philippe is a great host who makes sure you have everything you need. The only negative thing about the apartment is that out of the 3 bedrooms, only one of the rooms has a door. The other rooms have a curtain as a door. If you are a heavy sleeper or don't mind being woken up, when everyone else is up - you should definitely stay here. We were a family of 7 staying at the flat and it was quite annoying hearing what everyone was up to as there were no doors to the bedrooms.
