Fabulous Apartment in a Wonderful Location

  • 5 of 5

This spacious and exquisitely maintained apartment is located in the 11th Arrondisement but is really conveniently located to reach all of Paris easily. Bus 96 stops almost at the front door and connects you to stops on its way to the Gare Montparnasse in southern Paris. Metro Line 2 is a 2-minute walk. Metro line 3 is 5-minutes walk. You are less than one mile from Place de la Republique in one direction, same to Pere Lachaise cemetery in another, and one mile to Place Bastille in another direction. You can walk to the Louvre Museum in 30 minutes.

You are only twenty-thirty minutes by Metro from all of the famous Paris tourist attractions.

There are scads of restaurants of every type of food in every direction just minutes walk away. It is an eclectic neighborhood that gives you an idea of what modern, not touristy Paris, is all about.

The landlord and her agent are just wonderful, warm, and very helpful people. They are very accommodating and knowledgeable, also. Neither speaks English; however, but that will not be an issue and you will still be able to check in.

The apartment has two large bedrooms, each with a queen size bed (though one is a sleeper sofa type fold down). The bathroom is large and modern but there is no shower. The tub is big enough for two and is equipped with a spray nozzle meaning you have to kneel or sit in the tub to rinse off. Easy to use and very efficient. Lots of towels and sheets are provided. There is a well equipped and modern kitchen with a large refrigerator and real freezer. There is a four burner electric range with an oven. The living and dining area is large with windows that overlook the small square outside. You can sit at the dining table and watch a veritable parade of people of numerous cultures walk past every day, including samples of all of the latest fashions that Parisians are wearing today.

This apartment is on the first floor so you will have to walk up about 16 steps but the steps are wide and easily managed.

This apartment is perfect for everyone except someone in a wheelchair.

I would definitely stay here again!

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

Words cannot fully express how much I enjoyed my stay in this hidden gem! Monsieur Codelfy was kind and gracious, and made sure to give my cousin and me a full break down of the apartment and the city of Paris. Really, this was way more than we bargained for in such a good way! Even though our French was not up to par, Monsieur Codelfy was still so nice, really I cannot stop saying it.

About the apartment: It is huge! Sleeps 4 easy. It is located near a metro station, and I’m pretty sure a bus runs near there as well. There is also a bike rental unit right across the across the street. Even though it may seem a little off-center, it isn’t. In Paris you can get anywhere really within minutes because of the Metro system. Or you can take a cab, or UBER.

This apartment is highly recommended. It’s clean and nice, and the area is safe.

Oh! Oberkampf is only a street away so make sure to check that out. It’s a pretty hip area.

Merci beaucoup, Monsieur Coldefy!

Excellent apartment in popular location!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing apartment! My cousin and I were shocked to see how spacious the apartment really is. Very roomy with plenty of space for 4 people. For two, it seemed like a palace! All areas were clean and well stocked with necessities such as towels, toiletries, bedding, cookware. The windows face the street and provided lots of natural light. Details and certain touches like the books throughout gave the space character and a warm charm; it made me feel as if the owners had just stepped out of the apartment on a quick errand and would return at any moment!

Located on the first floor of the building, the apartment is situated above a bar a laundromat. The bar serves great lunch and dinner and gets lively evenings on the week-end, although noise was not an issue for us from the bedrooms. Conveniently outside the apartment are various restaurants, bars, shops, and places to eat. Oberkampf is a very popular and hip neighborhood full of restaurants and bars and is only one street away! Bus line 96 stops right outside the apartment and runs directly into the center of Paris, and metro stops Couronnes, Ménilmontant, and Parmentier are all nearby.

Although our flight was delayed into Paris, the owner who received us could not have been more welcoming and kind. After helping us get our luggage inside, he spent 40 minutes (!) giving us a walk-through of the space and giving general information about the city. He did not speak English and although our French was not very good, he was patient with us and we were able to communicate very well. We felt like family!

Between the great location, the service from the owner, and the apartment itself, this will by my first choice accomodation for all returns to Paris!

Sehr schöne Wohnung im 11.Arrondissement

  • 5 of 5

Wir wurden vom Vermieter schon sehr nett empfangen. Alles wurde uns sehr gut erklärt. Die Metrolinien 2 und 3 und der Bus 96...alles ist nur ein Katzensprung entfernt. Das Auto muss nicht bewegt werden. Wir waren 2 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder und für 1 Woche war die Wohnung völlig in Ordnung und alles war vorhanden. Es handelt sich um ein sehr lebhaftes Viertel, es ist sehr viel los auf dem Platz vor der Wohnung und im Cafe unter der Wohnung. Es ist laut, aber die Fenster sind super gedämmt. Es macht sehr viel Spass die Menschen auf dem Platz zu beobachten. Alle Sehenswürdigkeiten in Paris sind sehr gut und schnell zu erreichen, auch Disneyland Paris funktioniert mit nur 1 mal umsteigen. Die Wohnung ist sehr zu empfehlen, merci Monsieur Coldefy!!

Wonderful apartment! Merci!

  • 5 of 5

Great location, easy to the métro and bus, well equipped, and comfortable. The landlord was very kind (un grand merci, Christian) made us instantly feel at home, even with a little welcome gift. We were told to help ourselves to the kitchen, things like condiments, very handy to cook a light meal with fresh ingredients from the market. There are good shops nearby, the area has trendy Oberkampf just one street away, and there's really nice cafés a few meters along the same street as the apartment heading west towards Avenue République.

Bus 96 stops right in front of the door, and takes you through a great route to the Marais, Hôtel de Ville (BHV megastore), and Notre Dame Cathedral across the Seine to Saint-Germain-de-Prés. The Velib bicycle share station is also right at the doorstep.

We felt incredibly lucky to find this rental, I wholeheartedly recommend it.

Five days at Popincourt/Bastille apartment

  • 2 of 5

We were 4 adults and we spent 5 days at the apartment. Despite the previous agreement of the owner to the change from 3 to 4 adults, we had the surprise to have only 3 towels (note that in the bathroom there was an open shelf with at least 15 towels but the owner said that these towels were particular, so we had to buy an extra towel). Also the apartment was plenty of particular things like soaps, shampoos, etc in the bathroom so, there is no space to the guests things.

The same occurred in the kitchen: no space to our belongs, all the shelfs with the owner particular things. Two other things made our stay unconfortable: the bath - without shower nor curtain, so the bathroom becames completely wet each bath; the living room's floor have great slits so it is difficult to keep the floor clean. The positive aspect of the apartment is only the location, near the public transports, laudries and restaurants.

Owner's Response: Bonjour, En réponse à l'appréciation de nos vacanciers, nous voulons apporter quelques précisions. L'appartement n'est pas dédié exclusivement à la location. Nous l'utilisons régulièrement voir souvent en fonction de l'occupation. Nous fournissons gratuitement le linge de literies, les serviettes de toilettes et torchons. En général nous proposons une serviette de bain et une serviette de toilette par couple en demandant au locataire si cela convient. Il est possible qu'il y est eu un malentendu sur le nombre de personnes. Les locataires avait la possibilité de se servir pour compléter leur besoin. En effet régulièrement les gens se servent sur les étagères de serviettes sans pour cela payer un complément. Pour la cuisine, à l'arrivée des vacanciers, nous précisons qu'ils peuvent utiliser nos produits présents sur les étagères. Le réfrigérateur est vide à 80% minimum. Pour la salle de bain, il est précisé dans l'annonce qu'il s’agit bien d'une salle de bain et non d'une salle de douche. Il est possible de prendre des petites douches mais pas avec le confort d'une cabine de douche. Les fentes dans le plancher (qui n’empêchent pas de nettoyer avec l'aspirateur) font partie du charme de ces vieilles constructions rénovés.
