Just Right For Us!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here for a few days. All six of us had enough sleeping space and bathroom access to have an enjoyable "home base" as we covered/toured Paris. A few blocks walk from Republique which was where we would catch a hop on/hop off bus (which is what we used to get around the city). We enjoyed that as we saw most of the city as well as decided what we were going to do. There are a few markets within walking distance and the apartment had everything we needed to make meals every night. It made for a great launching point for us to get to every part of Paris. We did not use the metro but is is not far from the apartment. Overall the apartment was just right for our needs and allowed us to have a great week!

Owner's Response: Ian pointed out an interesting wal to discover Paris from the apartment : walk to the Place de la République, catch a hop on/hop off bus, decide what to see more profundly. It can also be done by bike, by foot, by boat or by metro. Paris is rich of possibilities, begining at Loft Espace et Lumière.

Not appropriate for children and/or women traveling alone

  • 1 of 5

This apartment is NOT a good location for children or women traveling alone. There is clearly a hangout spot for men right across the street. We were harassed by some of them when arriving at the apartment, and men were hanging outside until at least 2 am - sitting on the window ledges of the apartment itself.

We wound up vacating the property after one night and moving to a hotel. The owner refunded some of our money.

The apartment itself is large and spacious, with a washing machine, wifi, and a well-equipped kitchen. But it is not in a safe area.

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

Owner's Response: Dear Kimlan, Thank you for your review and recommandations for easy-reach places to eat or boulangerie. The neighbourhood has recently seen a pair of good quality businesses : groceries, marchands de légumes, bars. Philippe
