Why Jocelyne chose Quartier de la Gare

I bought this place because it is incredibly bright. Situated on the 8th floor we have a great view. (often in Paris streets are narrow and the view is limited). From the window, we see the Stade Charlety, and 4 stations away with the tramway we are in the wonderful Parc de Monsouris. It is not in the very center of Paris but 6 minutes away to 2 metro stations, bus no 47 that take you to the center in 20 minutes.

In 2001, Robert, my husband and I moved to the Washington Area, where he got a position. Until March 2011 we rented it to an elderly lady. Summer 2011 we renovated completely and furnished it with modern appliances and furniture. As we are still working in Maryland, it is free a great part of the years. As a French teacher, I am friendly with many of my students and I decided to share my place with them when they come to Paris. I provide them with my best tips and information to make their visits more enjoyable and stress free. I love meeting new people and help them with the French language and culture.

What makes this apartment unique

I love the fresh market on avenue d’Italie, (7 mns walk), on Thursdays and Sundays morning. Also we have several supermarkets and numerous restaurants all all around.

Also, when I am in Paris, I am very often alone and I don’t have any problem to come home late at night from the Maison Blanche metro station.

On Sundays morning, I love to take a walk to the François Mitterand bibliotheque’s area. There, I go to the MK2 movies theather. There are many large, wonderful and confortable theaters. The matinee tickets are only 6 Euros, then I go to have lunch around or walk along the Seine. When the weather is not good, I take the newest metro line number 14, and in a few minutes I am in Paris center, or I can stop at Bercy and have lunch in the “Bercy Village” area, not well known by tourists.

Guestbook comments from the owner

“We absolutely loved the apartment! The description on the site says it all. I wish we could have stayed longer. Jocelyne was a great host, and super nice. Location is great lots of amenities nearby and metro station. We will ask her for her place on our next trip to Paris.”

Great room with nice neighbors

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located within a walking distance from Maison Blanche (metro #7) and Porte de Choisy (metro #7 and tram #3) stations and thus is convenient to reach Paris center and airports/train stations even with large luggages. Supermarkets, a big shopping mall, restaurants are in the neighbor which is also nice. The owner is very helpful, and we have not had any inconvenience at all. The room is located in the 8th floor and has a nice view and bright. You can feel like you are living in Paris!

Great place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

This studio is a perfect place for two to hang out and enjoy Paris. The 13th arrondissemont is a nice neighborhood, and you have everything you need in walking distance. The Metro stop is only 2 blocks away, with easy access to all of the rest of the city. The apartment is clean, and well stocked with everything in the kitchen you might need. Jocelyn is very sweet and quick to respond to messages. I would definitely stay here again, and plan to! Thank you!!

Great stay in this large property.

  • 5 of 5

Great stay in this large, bright apartment. It is very bright, modern and well equipped.

Several tube stations less than 7 minutes away, direct tramway to Porte de Versailles, exhibition center. Also many ethnies restaurants around and grocery stores open late and on Sunday. I will definitely stay there next time I am in Paris.

Lovely Apartment!

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is very nice, clean with very modern amenities and just a five minutes walking to the metro. It accommodates a party of four nicely. It is located in the Chinatown district and if you like Asian food you are well served. We had the best Pho and Chinese food. The area is safe and quite beautiful. We were in Paris to celebrate my son’s 15th birthday and I wanted it to be very memorable. I love Paris and it was my son’s first time there. The place suited our needs and the owner of the place is nice and helpful if you need anything. She has lots of suggestions on places to see and how to get around. In all, the apartment was perfect for us. I highly recommend it on your next visit to Paris.

Clean, spacious and conveniently located...

  • 5 of 5

I've stayed in this apartment on 4 or 5 different occasions now. For me, when traveling all the way from the US, it's very important that I can trust that the apartment will be ready when I arrive - and it always is. Also, it is very close to both Maison Blanche & Porte de Choisy metro stations. There is also a Sunday market on Avenue d'Italie which is right next to the Maison Blanche station. I've stayed in the apartment by myself, but I believe it could comfortably accommodate 3 - 4 people.

Nice apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apt. was just as described - very nice, small, clean and very bright and cheerful. It was in Chinatown and somewhat removed from the sights of Paris. The Metro was a 5 minute walk but it took time to learn our way and the routes We had several difficulties getting the apt. key and never did master how to open the door correctly. Our biggest problem was that we didn't speak much French. If we ever rent an apt. again, we will be sure that there is an on-site manager or contact for help - especially if we don't speak the language. Jocelyne tried to be very helpful but we needed someone on site. We also had some difficulty operating the washing machine/dryer. The bed was very comfortable and the shower also was very good.
