Kind hostess and great area with good restaurants nearby. We had a pleasant time. Elisabeth stays with her mother in flat below and prepares breakfast for 7.30am. Shabby chic home in need of some TLC. Cats can get feisty if you don't want them to sleep on your bed with you which we found funny. Very affectionate little things.
Très bon accueil..
Adresse à retenir.. très bien placé
This is a lovely apartment in a great location, close to the grand boulevards and Montmartre. Elisabeth and Jade were both gracious and helpful. Our stay was longer than that of the typical guests, and so there were many new people to meet, which we enjoyed. One suggestion I have is that guests who stay longer than 3 or 4 days be automatically given fresh towels (we didn't ask, although we probably could have). On the whole, it was a delightful stay and I'd certainly stay here again.
A perfect spot and Jayde was amazing.
We had a great time staying at Elisabeth and Florence's place in Paris. The location was really wonderful. I understand how some people could find it noisy, but with the hot summer temperatures we were glad to have the windows closed and the A/C on. We were a family of 7 (2 adults, 5 kids) and could all probably have fit into the family room. But we were glad to have the other upstairs room as well especially when the baby needed to go down early. I thinks there are two housekeepers who rotate during the year. Jade was there during our stay and she was fantastic. She had breakfast ready each morning and was ready for plenty of recommendations about the local area. There were two other guests/groups who rotated through the balcony room while we were there, it was nice to interact with other folks over breakfast, but you just have to realize that is part of the experience. Overall we were very happy with our stay.
We stayed only for one night and were traveling with small children, and everything was great. Beautiful clean apartment, very friendly housekeeper, delicious breakfast, easy to get there, I can only say that I completely recommend you this guest house.
Joy was a wonderful host. Very friendly and gave us some great suggestions on where to go and where to eat. The room was very cozy and we got the bonus of two wonderful cats (the Kikys). The location was central and convenient. It was nice to have a balcony, and the room was surprisingly soundproof so even though it was noisy outside (lots of bars /restaurants in the area) I didn't have trouble with the noise. The apartment itself was beautiful. I would recommend staying here.
Nous avons eu un très beau séjour. La chambre était parfaite pour 2 personnes en plus nous avions accès au salon et à la cuisine. Bel apartement bien aéré. Des croissants et café tous les matins. Merci, nous retournerons l'an prochain si c'est libre.
Florence was our host on this occasion for 5 out of the 6 nights of our stay. On our last night Jade took over.
Florence was an amazing young woman. she spoke English perfectly, along with French and Mandarin. She was accommodating, fun and quite knowledgeable about the area and metro.
Their apartment was comfortable and homely and pretty central, being about a 20 minute walk from the Louve and Notre-Dame area, so we chose to walk pretty much everywhere.
A good base for exploring this area, particularly for families requiring kitchen facilities and the space of a shared lounge room.
