    Lejligheden er simpelthen så rar at være i og ligger helt perfekt. Næsten kun et stenkast fra Seinen, hvorfra man blot skal spadsere til den næste bro, så er man ved Notre Dame. Mange gode spisesteder samt bager og indkøbsmuligheder helt tæt på. Vi blev informeret om det hele ved ankomsten, som var lige så venlig som stemningen i lejligheden....

    Well let me just say that this place helped the trip to Paris be fabulous - We were greeted by Nadia who was warm friendly and welcoming - she showed us around the place and answered all the questions we had. The place was homely and well stocked pantry and fridge meant that we never went without a thing. Although we didn't use any of it. It is the type of place if you are looking for scissors you turned looked in an obvious place and that is where they were. Every thing worked - it was clean - had lots of options for sitting and entertaining - the beds were clean comfortable and had nice linen - all facilities worked including the dishwasher which helped with last minute clean up. The terrace was a real treat I so felt like doing some gardening while there although no time sorry Nadia. Other than a small attention to detail a couple of dead pots plants and a few things placed in awkward places this was a 10/10 experience. John, August 2015, MIAMI

Inside the place is cosy and perfect for me and my partner to stay as a couple. Gonzalo wasn't in town, but he was helpful in the phone and the arrangements for keys and directions were really simple. Would definitely come again! Simon from London, September 2015

    This flat worked out perfectly for our 3 night stay. Nadia was an amazing host!! Some of our luggage was lost and she served as an intermediary with the airline and helped make it possible to get our bag back on a timely basis. This flat is on the top floor and I was amazed how quiet it was for sleeping at night. I have been other places in Paris where the street noise was very disruptive though the night. The flat was just as described and met all our needs during our stay. I would definitely return!! Mason, Ohio, United States

    A lovely apartment right in the middle of one of the best districts in Paris. The Subway is just a few steps away and it connects the entire city, so getting around is incredibly easy. If you want to walk to see the sights, its 15 minutes to the Eiffel Tower, 15 minutes to Notre Dame and the Louvre, 20 minutes to the Latin Quarter and about the same to Montmartre. The apartment itself is perfect for two. It's slightly off the street and the windows face the courtyard so its incredibly peaceful and quiet at night. The kitchen is fully functional, we were able to cook quite a bit. There's also a washing machine (although no dryer) which cuts down on the amount of clothes you need to bring. The internet is fast and reliable. All in all, a charming place with the best possible location. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Paris!   June 2015, Houston

    This apt was great. Very clean, and close to the metro, notre dame, and a great gastro area. It's cosy, but we had ample space. Made use of the washer a few times as we were mid trip, and that was good too. The balcony was a really nice adder, along with the bottle of wine awaiting our on arrival....

Made use of the washer a few times as we were mid trip, and that was good too. The balcony was a really nice adder, along with the bottle of wine awaiting our on arrival. Communication was great, and although we didn't meet Nadia, Tony was waiting for us on arrival. Yes, stairs, but that's mentioned clearly. Would definitely recommend this spot in Paris, and would certainly stay here again. Brad Bower, Calgary, CANADA, stay April 2016
