Beautiful area and apt .. We will be back Carl thanks so much
This really IS a beautiful 1-bedroom apt in Paris center! From the massive door you push open and step over the ancient sill, to the cobblestone courtyard and tall, narrow Paris windows all along the long wall of the apartment, it has all the charm of the 400 year old building it is. But upstairs and inside the apartment itself, it is modern, warm, dry with a very nice bed, great shower, excellent kitchen and two couches to relax on after another exciting day in Paris. I'm not sure how they got it up the stairs but there's even a piano! The spiral staircase is an adventure but we became pro's at it and just outside the building are bars, shops, a grocery store, restaurants and all only a few blocks north of the Louvre. It really is a great spot and it made our vacation feel very authentic. And even with the weekend partying on the street, Karl's apartment is quiet because it faces the courtyard -- the best of both worlds! And Karl was a perfect host, there to help us move in, carry the bags up, get oriented in the apartment -- gave us lots of info (including where to find gluten-free foods!) and then left us on our own -- but always only a text away for info or help. This was our first airbnb stay and we are now recommending it to our friends.
Excellent location, flat was just what we wanted - clean, comfortable and spacious. Also the best thing is that it is close to all the cool restaurants at night. Karl helped to make sure our trip went smoothly by providing all the required information and tips. Thumbs up!
Karl was very hospitable! He greeted us at check in and also gave us fantastic tips (places to eat, things to do). Place was clean and warm. Thanks!
Karl was so generous and special. We loved his apt. it was very clean and modern - charming. Quiet, facing courtyard, away from the streets with all the café's and bars.The location is perfect, 2 pedestrian streets with cafe's, shopping, bakeries. Within walking distance to major sites.
I look forward to returning and enjoying this apt. again. I will recommend to my friends.
My dream of being in Paris for my 50th Birthday came true!!! The apartment lived up to the charming photos posted. The host Karl was equally as charming and helpful. I really can not express how lovely and special the location of this apartment is. Our first night there, we were wandering around and we just stumbled up on the Place la Concorde and a stunning view of the Eiffel Tower all a glitter. Karl did not exaggerate how close to famous monuments you are.
All in all Karl and his apartment made my visit, Paris Perfection!!
We stayed at Karl's in Paris for 7 nights. Karl met us at the train station and walked us to the apartment pointing out the various location for food an transport. Karl was always contactable and assisted us with all things 'French'. The unit was clean and extremely comfortable. I would highly recommend the location and unit and of course Karl. Thank you Karl the stay was memorable.
Lovely, clean apartment in a convenient location. Karl was very friendly and helpful, waited 4 hours for us when our flight was late and we got lost. It was a wonderful first experience for us using airbnb. Would definitely return! Thanks so much Karl!
Location and Karl himself are the biggest advantages of this apartment. It is very convenient as to location, it's in the very centre of the city and very close to the metro, supermarkets, museums, main shopping streets. Karl is a great host, he was always in touch. He met us in the apartment and gave important advices regarding surroundings and the apartment equipment.
The apartnment is on the 4th floor, and the way upstairs is quite steady, so it's not very convenient for travellers with the very large luggage or for those who is not ready to train himself daily. Though, for us it was not a big problem, actually.
More inconvenience for us was caused by lack of space for keeping clothing and other private belongings, since the apartment is not very large, and there is no much furniture inside. I'd recomend, for example, to arrange some kind of hangers in the bathroom - there is no one at the moment.
So, the apartment is nice and good located, but needs some practical furniture to make staying there more comfortable.
Though for a single traveller it can be an ideal place to stay. For two travellers it's quite good, too.
Ras et emplacement magnifique
Karl is a very nice person who knows Paris very well. He will do his best so you enjoy your stay as much as possible. He has a great apartment in the center of the city. Just the best.
Location, location, location. This is a very quiet and peaceful place in the best area of Paris. Everything is located walking distance. Karl is a wonderful and talented person. Please ask him to play and sing for you. He is amazing! :)))
