Apartment - B&B - up to 5 people - haussmann building - central Paris

On the 5th floor without a lift, appreciate the clear view of Paris and get excited by how central this apartment is to so many attractions. A short walk away are three Metro stations with numerous connections to the main line RER, airport, taxi and bus stations nearby.

2 bedrooms :

The movida room

An association of clear bright colours lightens this room with a design decoration just a touch psychedelic to recall the sensual and slightly kitsch ambiance of the films of Pedro Almodovar....But it’s only an unpretentious nod and a wink !

Associated with an old fashioned setting of mouldings, parquet floor and fireplace the overall effect comes across as rather appealing... judge for yourself.

With it’s two single beds (80x200cm) which can be pushed together to make a double bed (160x200cm).

This room can be converted into a lounge when the apartment is occupied by 1 or 2 people.

The room leads onto the balcony where you can lounge or take your breakfast during fine weather.

The ethnic room

Because our travels to various parts of the world have given us some wonderful memories this room contains testimony to the emotions felt upon contact with marvelous children, women, men and places. You’ll find a warm and comfortable atmosphere by the fireplace.

The room has a large bed 140x190.

The room leads onto the balcony where you can lounge or take your breakfast during fine weather.

The area :

This area typically Parisian, is nice, trendy and popular with, near the rue Oberkampf and its restaurants, bars, shops ... what to spend your evenings in the festive atmosphere.

Also near the City Hall and the Marais district, the oldest district of Paris is also known for its 'gay life'.

Still near the Canal Saint Martin now so characteristic of 'Paris bobo' or you end up on Sunday for a picnic with friends, rollerblading or cycling ... Canal where you can also navigate a real curiosity

The boulevard that stretches from the Place de la Bastille to the canal Saint Martin passing under your balcony gives oxygen and greenery with tall trees and colorful flower beds. It is also a lively area with the market very closeby (every Tuesday and Friday morning), its flea markets, and petanque players place.

Near the apartment many shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, theaters, discos, cultural sites, services ...

Great Location, close to metro, grocery store and restaurants. Pascals were welcoming and friendly. They had even stocked us with breakfast supplies, helped retrieve our lost luggage and arranged for taxi service to the airport.

We are a family of 4. Kids 13,10. We ate on balcony every night with food we bought from local markets. This is a great location to walk to a lot of places. Pascal is quite hospitable. We stayed here for two weeks and it felt like home for us while we were in Paris. There is a laundromat right down stairs.

Lovely Paris Apartment!!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, as well as our two sons ages 6 and 8, had a very comfortable stay in Paris. The apartment is compact by US standards, but had everything we needed for a very nice stay. Pascal met us and helped carry our luggage up the five flights of stairs and was extremely helpful with all of our questions. The airline lost my wife's luggage and Pascal was very flexible about ensuring that someone would be available to accept our luggage when we were not there. The space was great and had all the amenities we could want. Additionally, the coffee and breakfast items made the mornings all the easier. I have nothing but positive things to say about our hosts and the space. I would certainly recommend this apartment to anyone looking for a Paris get away at a reasonable price.

Great place to stay.

Great hosts and great location. Place is cute and tiny but has all the amenities. The metro is very close and easy to navigate. Got to all the sites in a very short time. I would come back and stay at this place in a heart beat.

Great location and space.

  • 5 of 5

Loved everything about it - - location, balcony, accommodating owner. I would only add that it is on the 6th floor with no elevator, so be forewarned if you have difficulty with stairs. Otherwise I would absolutely recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to stay in Paris.
