    This is a really nice apartment for 3 people. We stayed for 6 nights and the place was perfect for our visit. There's a large bed for 2 people upstairs and a sofa bed for 1 (or maybe even 2 people) downstairs. There's a small kitchen and bathroom which was perfect for us. The area is close to St. Germain...

    This is a really nice apartment for 3 people. We stayed for 6 nights and the place was perfect for our visit. There's a large bed for 2 people upstairs and a sofa bed for 1 (or maybe even 2 people) downstairs. There's a small kitchen and bathroom which was perfect for us. The area is close to St. Germain which is a pretty nice area. The apartment is very close to the metro stop "Jussieu" which we used every day to get to the different places we visited in Paris. Also, the apartment has wifi which is pretty important for those who are coming from international and don't have international cell phone plans. Overall my experience in this apartment was very good and I would definitely recommend this to anyone who plans to visit Paris. March 2011 United States

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have...

    We had a wonderful stay at Nadia's apartment. I was able to communicate very easily with her about our stay, and prior to us coming she emailed a detail list of things to know, like the directions, keycode, local supermarket opening hours, etc. which was very helpful. The place is spacious and warm, and feels like coming home. We have an 11 month old and were able to have our dinner and wine without disturbing our son sleeping in one of the bedrooms. The outside patio is beautiful and feels very private. The location is great, away from the busy and touristy center with a more local feel. There is a great bakery just down the street, as well as two supermarkets close by. It takes about 20 minutes by metro to go "downtown", with the metro stop (Dausmenil), which is a block or so away. Nadia helped us get a cab to the airport and even paid the $5.00 reservation fee for us, which was very nice of her. All in all, I will never choose a hotel room over an apartment again, and am a big fan of bnb. We hope to return to Paris someday, and would for sure want to stay in Nadia's place again.

    Nuestra anfitriona Nadia ha procurado que todo estuviera preparado cuando llegamos dándonos todas las facilidades y explicaciones necesarias. La situación del apartamento es simplemente perfecta, pues está justo al lado de Notre Dame pero a la vez en un barrio encantador y tranquilo, con todas las cosas que necesitamos al alcance de la mano. El apartamento situado en un edificio con historia tenía lo que necesitábamos para nuestra estancia, un dormitorio cómodo e independiente, un salón con un sofá cama amplio y una cocina con todo necesario para prepararnos nuestras desayunos y comidas. Situado en la planta quinta del edificio, dispone de una magnífica luminosidad en todas las estancias con una terraza que da a la calle desde la que casi se pueden ver las torres de Notre Dame. Sólo hay que acostumbrarse al pequeño ascensor del edificio pero que nos venía muy bien para subir a la quinta planta después de los largos paseos por la ciudad. Sin duda volvería a solicitar alojarme en este apartamento si volviera a París y a recomendarlo. Mairena del Aljarfe, ESPANA, Junio 2016

    The apartment is close to a beautiful park. Unfortunately the door of the apartment is not marked, so we had quite a few problems before we found it. The metro station is close , from which you are anywhere fast. The apartment is big enough for four adults. The kitchen is good equipped but some scratched containers need to be replaced. Pull-out sofa is  comfortable. We had a really good time so that the apartment is definitely worth the money we paid. Nadia did not meet us in person but we received many of her help over the phone.
