We are a family of five and had plenty of space in the apartment. The online profile was accurate and we felt very safe in the apartment. Anne was most accommodating to our early arrival, which was most appreciated. It was quiet and comfortable. Highly recommend staying here especially if you plan to use Gare du Nord to leave Paris at any point during your stay. Thank you for a very memorable family holiday week in Paris!
Large apartment in a great location! Perfect for a big group!
Our family of 9 just stayed at this property for 10 days. We were amazed at how our large group easily fit into this space - three couples had their own rooms, and three "kids" fit into the two remaining rooms with 2 boys in one, and 1 girl in the other. The bathroom arrangements worked well, because the three toilets and two showers are split between 4 different rooms, everyone could access a bathroom when needed - shocking with 9 people.
We ate breakfast at the apartment each morning and a few dinners as well. We found all the equipment we needed, and all the staples as well (like oil, sugar, salt, etc). The host also thoughtfully left us a bottle of wine which we very much enjoyed!
The apartment is on what is essentially the 6th floor - a long walk up! But the elevator, though small, was very fast and we used it a lot.
There is no air conditioning (typical in Paris!) and it did get warm towards the end of our stay. The apartment has several fans which helped a great deal! The only negative we experienced was that in leaving windows open to get cool night air, we discovered that Paris has nasty mosquitos! We ended up getting bug spray to reduce the biting.
The location is wonderful. A very short walk to the nearest Metro (Poissonaire). Beware that during rush hour the trains are PACKED and since there is no transfer at this stop, you will end up just needing to push on if there is a square inch of space. Fortunately, the trains come constantly, so you can let a couple go by until it looks a little better. Also, walk down to the end of the platform and try for the first car. And it's just a few blocks to Gare Nord, where you can also catch several other metro lines.
The host suggests several restaurant options. And the best part of my day was the morning pastry run and getting a cup of cafe creme for myself :) There is a delightful fromagerie nearby (Ferdinands) who was SO helpful and friendly in helping us pick out cheeses!
The host was very helpful in our planning and so welcoming when we arrived. Our whole family would highly recommend this property!!
Spacious for seven
Enough space in the apartment for seven to be together at times and at other times to spend time privately. Location was convenient to Metro, groceries and restaurants. A bit more instruction on use of washer and dryer would have been helpful. We found instructions for trash and recycling a bit confusing.
We especially enjoyed the eclectic decor and the wonderful views from multiple rooms.
Thanks for your review. I've already updated the manual of use and did my best to make it more explicit!
Hope we'll have the pleasure to welcome you again.
Our group of seven loved this location. Lots of space and clean bedding. Elevator is very small (2-3 people at time) but part of the old time feel of building. Very authentic Parisian feel. Close to metro and buses and Gare du Nord. Very quiet building. Our only issue was very dim lighting. Anne is very attentive to any needs and concerns.
We had a pleasant stay...
