Comfortable Paris studio apartment

  • 4 of 5

This character studio with a bonus mezzanine sleeping area is ideal for a couple and was still comfortable when our son stayed with us for 2 nights. It is close to local shops, supermarket and a good variety of local restaurants. The metro is very close and makes it easy to access all the wonderful tourist attractions Paris has to offer. It is well presented and equipped. We recommend this property, but be aware, you need to carry your bags up 2 flights of stairs.

Quiet and Clean

  • 4 of 5

This apartment was clean and cozy and very affordable for Paris! It was just as advertised. There was a grocery store within a block of the apartment. The metro made it easy for us to go anywhere in Paris and there was also a taxi stand within walking distance. You will need to walk up two flights to access. We loved that the apartment faced the inner courtyard rather than the street. We found it worked well for the three of us. Natsumi was very responsive and helpful as was her agent, Valentin, who met us at the apartment when we arrived. Thank you both again for all your help! We would recommend for 2-3 guests.

Super little apartment

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much to Natsumi. Her apartment is perfect. Two sleeping areas, lounge, kitchen and separate bathroom fit so well into the tiny space. We felt very at home and everything we could have needed for a short stay in Paris was available. Being able to cook for ourselves (with a lovely local supermarket and fabulous delicatessen) saved us many Euros. Being close to several metro lines enabled us to travel across the city for our conference every day with ease. Thank you again for your warm welcome and I look forward to coming to stay again

Excellent & cosy apartment

  • 4 of 5

We have just checked out of this lovely little apartment having spent 9 nights there. The apartment is delightful, but be prepared for Paris sized apartments! I am not sure how 4 adults would cope here. For me and my husband it was perfect, but the mezzanine bed has a very low ceiling meaning an adult would have to crawl into bed and you have no privacy as the mezzanine is actually built over the main bed and you can pop you head over and say hi to your neighbours in bed! However for small children I think it would be a real adventure and offers a great and authentic experience.

The location is 10 mins walk to Bastille and some seriously excellent restaurants and bars. Metro connections are excellent. You can walk to Notre Dame in 25/30 mins and its a lovely walk.

We ate out each day and took advantage of the fabulous Richard Lenoir market, open Thurs & Sundays, to stock up on cheese, foie gras and all the other amazing produce you can find! This market was perhaps the highlight of the area. You can have breakfast and lunch there as plenty of stalls are selling food to eat and wine and cider to drink!

Restaurant find was Bopinger which is 15 mins walk away and the oldest Brasserie in France. Thankfully it has not been over commercialised and the choucroute was excellent and I think I had the best steak au poivre of my life!

We also frequented Bar/brasserie Oscar just before the main Bastille junction. Good food, nice wine and very friendly.

No idea why people say Parisians are unfriendly or abrupt, we found everyone to be charming, friendly and very helpful.

This apartment is an excellent base to explore Paris and Natsumi was very professional and very helpful throughout the whole experience.

Owner's Response: Hi Kate and Paul, Thank you for your review! As for the size of the apartment, I thought the exact size of the apt was mentioned in my listing, but after reading your comment I moved it in the first paragraph so that guests would not miss it. However,this apartment is considered to be a 'big' studio by Paris standard. You might pay over 100 euro/ night for a 12 m2 double room in a hotel around this area! Anyways, I am glad you seem to have fully enjoyed your stay in Paris and my apartment and I hope to have you back for your next visit to Paris! Natsumi

From the Owner

The greatest thing about this apartment that I love is the high ceiling and open beams, and lot of lights coming in from south-facing windows and skylight. You will see how nicely it is decorated. Also, Bastille is a very animated area with a lot to do and it is close to the Marais area which is a very trendy & chic area. Nevertheless, this apartment is very quiet.
