Lovely and cleverly designed little apartment

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in the apartment in January 2017, and loved it. It's small but beautiful, immaculately clean, and very cleverly designed to make the most of the space. It's in a tremendous location, literally 2 mins away from Oberkampf metro, and within walking distance of lovely bars, restaurants and shops (the interior of Cafe Charbon is stunning). We'd highly recommend this apartment for a romantic weekend or longer, but be warned - the apartment has a very steep staircase down to the bedroom, you need to watch your footing, and it wouldn't be suitable if you were infirm. Communications from Arnaud & Hubert, the owners, were fast and friendly, and we received a lovely warm welcome from Arnaud when we arrived plus a bottle of wine - merci, Arnaud!

A charming apartment in a great location with everything you need for a stay in Paris.

  • 5 of 5

A small but perfectly formed apartment in a quiet street. Easy access to the Metro and a wide range of local shops, restaurants and bars makes this a perfect location. The apartment is very well thought out, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The owners were very obliging and we were impressed with a lovely welcome package of fresh bread, pastries and a bottle of red wine. It was lovely to feel that we were part of Paris life, if even for a few days. We would definitely recommend this as an excellent place to stay.

Lovely, well equiped apartment in a great location

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, about the owners. Arnaud and Hubert went to great lengths to ensure that we had a great stay, from arrangements beforehand, to even leaving us a .welcome drink for our arrival. They even left a folder full of useful information about the apartment and the neighbourhood, as well as guide books, maps etc.

The apartment itself is very well maintained and nicely decorated. and has everything that you would need for a comfortable stay. The building is very quiet, and the flat is set back from the street, the other side of a small courtyard, so you hear no street noise. The bedroom is comfortable and there is lots of storage space, so you can easily make yourself at home.

There is a boulangerie at the end of the street, no more than a minute walk away, and plenty of local shops for any incidentals that you need. If you happen to be there on a Sunday, there is the Bastille street market just 5 minutes down the road on Boulevard Richard Lenoir.

The nearest metro (Oberkampf) is just a few steps away, as are a couple of nice bars. You're only a few minutes' walk from Place de la Republique and the Canal St Martin, in one direction, and Place des Vosges in the other, and the Metro can have you down on the Ile de la Cite or in Montmartre within 10 minutes. The neighbourhood itself is friendly and has a nice feel.

The apartment proved itself to be a great base to explore the city, providing plenty of home comforts to make for a relaxing and comfortable stay. I recommend it highly and will hopefully stay there again some time!

Peaceful perfection in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Arnaud and Hubert's apartment. They have thought of everything you need to feel right at home. They gave us a very thoughtful welcome gift which was so touching.

We really enjoyed the large patio for drinks, breakfast and relaxing. Super comfy bed downstairs, beautiful bathroom and shower, and well equipped kitchen.

The neighbourhood has everything from great cafe/bistros, a boulangerie, grocery and wine shops and the Picasso Museum a short stroll away.

Metro stops and buses are really close and well serviced by multiple lines.

We would happily stay again and will recommend it to anyone coming to Paris.

Merci pour un tres bon sejour!
