Guestbook comments from the manager

Kathleen and her sister and daughter were great. Really easy to talk to, organised and lovely people. They took great care of the apartment and it was left super clean. Couldn't ask for more.

Large Apartment - Hip Neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This apartment is on the 5th floor facing a courtyard with security access. We loved this place because it was close to many well known areas of interest such as Notre Dame and the Seine River, but far enough to be out of tourist foot traffic. The kitchen allowed us to make many of our own meals with ingredients from local markets. There are lots of restaurants, wine shops and stores close by. In the event we find ourselves in Paris again we will consider another stay. The only downside was some construction on the floor above. This impacted 2 days of our stay. At least it didn't start till 8:30 AM. But to be honest the area is going through a revival of sorts. Its great to see the transition. Without the noise our rating is a solid 5!

Pictures do not disappoint! Michelle met us at the planned time and showed us around.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was very large and was a nice spot for our family of four with two teenagers. Lift to 5th floor was nice. Close by metro and shopping and well—appointed kitchen made cooking easy.

The apartment is every bit as good as the description in the particulars.

  • 4 of 5

We spent three days in Paris during what was an incredibly cold spell. The apartment proved to be a well located, well equipped, and blessedly warm place to stay. We really appreciated the extra space and flexibility as compared with hotel accommodation.

Owner's Response: Hi Roger, I'm so glad you had a wonderful time in the apartment and loved it as much as you said. I'm also disappointed that despite you raving about the apartment and thanking us for being so flexible, you then gave us our first four star review when we've only ever received 5.

Lovely large Parisian flat!

  • 5 of 5

My family of four loved this beautiful flat! We felt like true Parisians for a few days! Michelle was great in communicating with us and check-in was easy. I also appreciated her responsiveness on WhatsApp in helping me with transportation questions. The flat had everything we needed; beds were comfortable, windows were beautiful looking out onto a classic Paris courtyard, and the lift up to the 5th floor worked great so we didn't have to hike upstairs after a long day of sightseeing. We went to the closest bakery around the corner every day (the pain au chocolat of course is magnificent). Very close to a number of Metro stops. Wonderful! Wish I was still there.

Very beautiful and tastefully furnished apartment, situated in a quiet, yet central location.

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, tastefully appointed apartment, in a turn of the century building, with elevator!, quiet and intimate, yet centrally situated, with restaurants, shops, museums, parks, churches and concert venues within reach. The apartment was well stocked with all kitchen and bathroom equipment, a washer and a rack for clothes drying, lots of extra towels, sheets, blankets, a couple of umbrellas!, not to mention the nice collection of books, and the Wi-Fi functioned flawlessly! I will definitely stay there again, when in Paris!

Car: not necessary

The Canal St. Martin is a calm and peaceful, attracting more Parisians than tourists. Romantic iron footbridges and tree-lined streets the perfect and truly authentic Parisian atmosphere this district has to offer.

A walk around the neighborhood you will find independent shops and high-end boutiques. Like for example Antoine et Lili shops (95 quai de Valmy), a trio of colorful stores selling endearing pieces of home decor and furniture, children's and women's clothing. You love high-end vintage clothing? Then you must go to Thanx God I'm a V.I.P. (12 rue de Lancry), a two-level, 200m2 vintage store selling Hermes, YSL, Burberry, and Lanvin. Open 7 days a week, Artazart (83 quai de Valmy) is filled with art and design books, Lomo cameras and other hip arty gadgets. Centre Commercial (2 rue de Marseille), is a loft-style boutique featuring brands chosen for their impact on social and environmental issues. Further down the street is the boutique A.P.C. (5 rue de Marseille).

With all the restaurants in the neighborhood you will never go hungry here! Grab a drink and a meal with friends at the legendary Hotel du Nord (102 quai de Jemmapes), around since 1885 and famous for being in the 1938 Marcel Carné movie. Du Pain et des Idées (34 rue Yves Toudic) THE bakery in the area, frequented by Parisians and tourists for its traditional pastries with twists like for example matcha green tea croissants. Mingle your way through the crowds for a seat at the terrace of bistro Chez Prune (71 quai de Valmy), or have a gluten-free meal at Helmut Newcake (36 rue Bichat). If you're on a budget do like the locals and go to Le Cambodge (20 rue Alibert), which serves delicious Cambodian cuisine in a canteen-like setting.

If you choose to picnic instead of sitting in a restaurant, be sure to get some delicious authentic and modern cakes from the House of 3 Brothers (25 rue de Lancry). You can also head over to the renovated 18th century convent Maison de l'architecture en Ile-de-France (148 rue du Faubourg Saint-Martin) to marvel at the architecture-related expositions held in this old chapel. Once you're there, make sure to drop by Café A, it's terrace is a popular hangout in the summer.

If you're too lazy to walk along the quai by foot, book a Canauxrama boat cruise (2 hours and 30 minutes), which takes you through four double locks and two swing bridges before ending at the Bassin de la Villette area.

But that is just a few things the Canal St Martin area has to offer. Much more is to be seen when you visit and the best thing is simply "put on your sunglasses and stroll around to discover".

Bienvenu :-)
