Parisflatlist wants to give you those precious informatins that all good parisian knows, so you will spend a wonderful time and saving your time, so you ll be able to live as a parisian!

TAXIS

TaxiParisian taxi are easily recognizable thanks to their « hat » on their roof.

When the light is red, it means it is occupied

When the light is green, it means it is available.

Please note that “normal taxis cars” can charge a maximum of 3 people for security reasons as they are not authorized to let a passenger sit in front (=next to the driver)

Therefore, if you are travelling with more than 3 people and/or with many lugages, we recommend you to prebook a taxi that will give you a proper car model

There are many different taxis compagnies, but be careful of the FAKE ones, especially             on airports and stations site

TRAVEL BY CAR

can-stock-photo_csp5592993Advice if you are travelling by car or have rented a car during your stay :

If you park on the street, there are 3 ways of paying at the ticket machine (‘l’horodateur) :

– by credit card.

– by ‘Paris Carte’ which has replaced the former ‘Carte Monéo’. It is a prepaid smart card that allows you to pay your parking directly at the ticket machine and most of the ‘Tabac’ shops sell them.

-P phone – the new system for phones

  • THE MONTH OF AUGUST :From 01/01/2015, most streets have started charging in AUGUST (previously Paris was known to offer free parking exceptionally in this month). Also street parking is now free from 20H00 to 09H00 (whilst before it was from 19H00 to 09H00), and Parisians are very unhappy with that !!

BATOBUS

    Really nice apartment in beautiful area! On arrival apartment was clean and full of light. Perfect location, just few minutes away from the cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris but not that crowd of tourists that it may suppose to be. Small street marked near there is just perfect to buy something for breakfast. Moscow/Russia-Leo Elkervitch-April 2015

    El departamento de Nadia es precioso, alegre y luminoso. Está equipado a la perfección. La ubicación es excelente, cerca de todo, el barrio es hermoso a dos cuadras de NotreDame, comercios gastronómicos de todo tipo, el Sena a 50 metros, realmente vale la pena tener en cuenta la zona es muy buena, llegas caminando rápidamente a todos lados. Nadia es muy atenta y quien designó para que nos reciba, nos esperó hasta la madrugada ya que nuestro vuelo se demoró, con absoluta dedicación y esmero por alojarnos cómodamente. Volveríamos a hospedarnos en el departamento de Nadia si visitáramos Paris otra vez ya que el lugar es realmente acogedor y confortable en todo sentido. A nosotros no nos afectó el tamaño del ascensor, pero es particularmente pequeño, es solo para dos personas y se mueve lentamente. Buenos Aires, July 2017

    Very nice apartment. Small, but comfortable. In a great location, very close to Notre Dame! We checked in late, as our flight came later, but Nadia was very communicative and texted me using iMessages. Her friend Jean was there to meet us, even though it was around midnight when we got there! I would definitely recommend it. OHIO, US, October...

    The building is in a great location a few blocks from the center of Champs Élysées and close to Metro, bus and Rails. We took a cab for $35 Euros to the apartment. This was the most direct mode. The apartment was as pictured and very spacious for French standards. It had a shower and bath with good hot water. It was nice having a family room with a pullout couch and TV with American channels. Since I was traveling with my mother, I slept on the sofa bed so she had a private room . The kitchen had a dishwasher, fridge, microwave and oven. Ideal if you have a family or want to eat in sometimes. Also a hotpot and coffee maker. There was several cafes, pastry shops and restaurants as well as a Starbucks within short walking distance. You can walk or take the metro to all the major sites and districts. Versailles was a 30 min train ride. The apartment and furnishings were fine but the rug and the comforter on the bed could use a cleaning. Returning the key when leaving was a breeze as the door locks itself so we just left the key on the counter and went on our way. The apartment was in a great neighborhood but still had a code to for the entryway than a key to the building door and to the apartment door so we felt very safe. also being only one flight up it was good since we had bad knees. The apartment was in the rear so you didn't hear any street noise and it faced s cute courtyard. Since we went in Mid May the weather was in the low to mid 70's so we didn't miss air conditioning. This huge first time I would...
