    Отличная квартира. Третий округ, в котором находятся апартаменты, очень удобен для посещения достопримечательностей пешком. В квартире есть все необходимое для отдыха после прогулок, напротив подъезда кафе со свежими круасанами на завтрак, за углом прачечная, рядом метро и много автобусов. В общем, отличный вариант для большой семьи за приемлемые деньги! Спасибо! Moscow, Russia, September 2013

    We stayed in the apartment for 3 nights recently and were delighted with our choice of apartment. It is very handily located to the Latin Quarter, the Pantheon, Notre Dame and St Michel. It is within 2 minutes walk from the Metro station Cardinal Lemoine and there are many restaurants and cafes nearby, and a supermarket located around the corner. Whilst the apartment is rather small it quite suited our needs as we were out and about for most of each day. Would definitely request this apartment for future visits to Paris.

    Nadia was the perfect host - welcomed us warmly upon arrival, offered drinks and wine and even showed us to a market nearby for dinner. The penthouse was everything one could ask for - Parisian, cosy, clean and fully equipped with everything one needs. We loved the terrace and spent time each morning there.

    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....

    Great location, lots of pubs/bars and restaurants that serve pizza pasta and burgers.  The apartment was clean, but smaller then expected. Great communication, thank you for everything! Markham, Ontario, Canada, June 2013

    We were shown a room that was indeed cute (i.e. tiny), but was stocked with everything we might have needed in the way of dry goods. Since we weren't going to be spending much time there, it didn't need to be anything more than a place to sleep, shower and eat the occasional meal. It served that purpose admirably. It...

    We were shown a room that was indeed cute (i.e. tiny), but was stocked with everything we might have needed in the way of dry goods. Since we weren't going to be spending much time there, it didn't need to be anything more than a place to sleep, shower and eat the occasional meal. It served that purpose admirably. It was within 5 minutes of anything we might have needed. There was a clothes washer (no dryer though, but there was a laundromat within walking distance), a dishwasher, a toaster oven/broiler, a drip coffee maker, and a kettle, plus a two-burner countertop stove, and a little fridge. They even provided a blow dryer in the little bathroom. Just remember to bring your own toiletries (i.e. shampoo & conditioner, etc.) as those are not provided. The owner bent over backwards to accomodate our needs and even stored our luggage in her home for a few hours as there was going to be a gap in time between our leaving Paris and the new tennant taking over the flat and we didn't want to have to carry our luggage around with us for that whole time. She was absolutely wonderful about everything. I highly recommend this flat. I can't say enough good things about it. Mississauga, Ontario, Canada May 2014,

    Apartment very nice and consistent with the description. Very quiet room overlooking a courtyard, noisy stay the night as facing the street, but we're in Paris and this is normal ... apartment very clean and healthy. Good welcome and very good follow for arrival and departure. Daniel on July 2015, ATLANTA
