About Samuel Zayat

I have lived in Paris for almost 20 years, of which 14 in this part of town. So you can tell I know it well and enjoy it a lot!

I've also traveled the world for work and leisure. I like both to help discover the wonders of Paris but also to meet people from other places, environments, cultures and lifestyles.

See you soon I hope

A nice cosy studio and a brilliant host

  • 4 of 5

A really nice studio rather on the small side, but it is very cosy and has everything you may need: there's even considerable storage space next to the bed on the second level. The location is excellent with Place Monge metro station literally around a corner, and the terrace offers some magnificent sunset views. The owner is the best. He'll make everything in his powers to make your stay as enjoyable as possible - from meeting you as late as you need to arrive, providing you with maps and guides to the city and an excellent guide to the studio and the neighbourhood, to letting you use an elevator and pass through his flat occasionally in order to save you five flights of stairs. The only concerns are indeed the stairs you have to climb and the bathroom: overall it's not bad at all, it's really small, though, and there is no space for a sink, so you have to use the kitchen sink, and the water heater may not be suitable for extended hot showers. But apart from that, there's nothing wrong with it. And a final thing: some of the plates and pans were very greasy, which is a pity since there is a compulsory cleaning fee. Overall, though, I heartily recommend this studio.

Прекрасное место для знакомства с Парижем - расположение, хозяин, цена\качество, атмосфера супер

  • 5 of 5

Вариант великолепный за эти деньги. Проще сразу сказать о нескольких особенностях (не назову недостатками):

1. Шестой этаж в доме с очень высокими потолками и очень крутой винтовой лестницей. Эквивалентен девятому этажу простого дома. За багаж не беспокойтесь, любезный месье Самуэль встретит и проводит на лифте (он в другом крыле). Просто каждое утро бегать за свежим багетом за завтрак не захочется

2. Студия сделана очень продуманно, со вкусом и недешево для романтического холостяка с эпизодическими гостьями. Для двоих чуть-чуть тесно по местам хранения одежды, нет двери в санузел (занавеска)

3. Нет розетки для фена у зеркала (сам фен есть и он мощный), нет зеркала для бритья за мойкой (или я не нашел). В общем-то я уверен, что месье Самуэль за пять минут бы предоставил все что понадобится, просто это не было проблемами для нас, так, особенности.

В целом - однозначно рекомендую посетить, супер вариант, идеальное расположение, вид на крыши, своя кухонька и даже кофеварки есть, свежие впечатления, романтик. А сюда ли захотите вернуться в следующий раз или будете искать других свежих впечатлений, это уже сами решите

Incredible ...fabulous

  • 5 of 5

This is a "must stay" apartment! Firstly, the owners of the apartment are EXTREMELY helpful and hospitable. They made my stay a brilliant one. Nothing was too much wonderful it is to meet such beautiful people! The location is excellent, close to everything, and the neighbourhood is very safe and has an authentic feel to it. Plenty of cafes, restaurants, pharmacies, and even a laundromat which I used. The apartment itself exudes charm, nestled above the rooftops, with such a Parisian feel to it. It's small, but you have everything that you need, and the sleeping loft is magical. There are plenty of guidebooks to help you plan your stay in Paris. It's on the 6th floor, and on the first day, you can take your luggage up in the lift, through the owners' apartment and then you only have to climb one set of stairs. For the rest of your stay, you climb up and down the 6 flights of stairs which gives it a wonderfully local feel. If you can't climb 6 floors, you might have to reconsider your choice. Having said that, I found it no drama at all, and I enjoyed the exercise. The building itself is a classic Parisian one, and it even has a Madama Concierge, just like in all the novels we have all read. I cannot rate this place highly enough! When you book it, and once you have paid, Samuel sends you the MOST COMPREHENSIVE guide to the apartment and to Paris, right down to how to access the building from wherever you may be coming from. All so simple! Every last detail has been thought through to make your stay an enjoyable one. Why stay in an impersonal hotel when you can have your own slice of Paris, all to yourself during your stay?!?! You'll stay here and you'll defintely make plans to come back. 6 stars plus....

Great place for two

  • 5 of 5

If you are agile, this is a nice quiet place to stay. Be aware that the loft space is 115 steps up; I got into great shape! Samuel was very hospitable and helpful. Room was clean and in good order. Short walk to M9 metro or to Rue Mouffetard for great eating! No air conditioning, but the cross breeze was more than sufficient in keeping us comfortable. Very quiet neighborhood, unless World Cup is playing, but the cheers were very convivial and entertaining.

The perfect place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I've been staying at this flat with my daughter (13). The studio is just lovely! Clean, with a modern, functional interior. It is quite, just like having your very own place in this metropolitan city. The Metro Station is just around the corner. We have received loads of helpful informations by the owner, like getting the bus instead of the metro to travel to Montmartre. Which turned out to be like a sightseeing tour for a couple of Euros. I would definitely go back again!
