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.

Sonniger Aufenthalt in Paris

  • 5 of 5

Der Kontakt per Email mit Philippe war sehr freundlich und unkompliziert. Man bekam einen Türcode um in die Wohnung zu gelangen. Die Loft ist geräumig und sauber. Alles da was man braucht. Wir fühlten uns dort sehr wohl. Metro ist nicht weit entfernt um die Stadt zu erkunden. Beim nächsten Aufenthalt in Paris würden wir sie wieder buchen.

Excellent Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Philippe's loft. There were 6 of us staying there and were all very comfortable. My brother and his family joined us over the weekend for a home cooked meal and we were able to accomadate 11 people for dinner around his fabulous table. There was a grocery store just blocks away and the metro was very close by that connected to all the major lines. We have stayed in Paris many times and this space was one of the most functional we have experienced. Philippe was very friendly and accomadating. I would deffinatley stay there again.

As described

  • 4 of 5

Spacious and bright. The downstairs had concrete floors and though the windows could be opened, they are literally on street level which made it awkward. It's an unconventional space in that it has the feel of a converted commercial space and unique layout. The downstairs bedroom has a curtain, but no door, but his was not a problem. The beds were very comfortable. Wifi worked well. There is a washer but no dryer - a drying rack was used, no problem. The kitchen is well equipped. The area is convenient to various metro stops in a bustling diversified neighborhood. There's an open market on Friday mornings just up the street and many patisserie (sp? bakeries), restaurants and cafes in the area. It's definitely not a tourist area, though it was very easy to get to anywhere in the city via metro. There were some people sleeping on the street nearby but at no time did we feel unsafe in any way. There is an Asian area with good restaurants a short walk away. There are lots of ethnic restaurants of all kinds. Philippe was very nice, helpful and oriented us to the house and neighborhood. This was a comfortable space to return to after a long day of walking and sightseeing.
