Interaction with guests


The entire space including kitchen, mezzanine and bathroom will be Our apartment is not a Hotel! As a living space that we sometimes share with guests, we hope to share a part of our life and environment with you and make new friends with mutual respect! We are very happy to help you with your restaurant or places of interest reservations (Moulin Rouge, Louvre or Orsay museums, Versailles castle, Bateau Mouche boat trips, taxis or airport transfers) and also happy to take you for a walk in the neighborhood if we have the time!

Other things to note

*The 2 floor size vast size windows has no curtains.
*The second bed is a huge Japanese traditional tatami which can be used as a 4 people bed 254*201cm(please be aware that the traditional tatami bed is not soft as the normal western bed!),prepare from the 3rd person.

*Can we leave our bags with you if we arrive a bit early?
Yes. If you know that you’re arriving between 10:30-17:00, tell us and you can choose to use our free bag drop service. The process is the same: we meet you at the home, so you can then get the keys, drop your bags and then leave the home whilst we continue to prepare it. You can then return any time after 17:00. It's a great chance to start exploring the local neighbourhood where you'll be staying.

*Do you offer an early arrival?
Of course. We know that not all flights land at sociable hours. If you’re arriving between 11:00–17:00 / leaving between 10:00 - 16:30, we can offer you an early arrival. In these cases we block the home off to all other bookings the day before your arrival, so we have enough time to clean and prepare it the night before your arrival. This is subject to home availability and charged at 50% of the cost of the nightly rate of your booking.

*And if we need to, can we leave the home late?
Yes, up until 16:00. This is subject to the home’s availability and will cost 50% of the nightly rate of your booking.

*Do you have places where we can store our luggage?
If you are arriving between 10:30–17:00, you can opt for the bag drop option (see "Can we leave our bags with you if we arrive a bit early?" above), which will enable you to leave your bags at the home. For any other times, we recommend using a luggage storing facility at one of Paris's main railway stations.

!!!STAY AWAY FROM THIS LISTING!!! From the moment I instant booked the apartment until the moment SHE CANCELED THE DAY OF MY ARRIVAL, 2 hours before my flight, Lu never ever communicated with me. I never got a message from her. Not even an apology. I am actually wondering if there is a real human behind this add or if it’s just a scam. I had the most stressful experience ever and hope she gets removed from Airbnb. It should be no place here for people like this !!!RESTEZ ÉLOIGNÉ DE CE LISTING!!! Du moment où j’ai réserver l’ apartment en instant booking jusqu’au moment où ELLE A ANNULÉ MA RÉSERVATION LE JOUR MÊME DE MON ARRIVÉE, 2h avant mon vol pour Paris, Lu n’a pas une seule fois communiqué avec moi. Je me demande même si il y a une vraie personne derrière ce listing ou ça n’est pas juste une arnaque. Cela a été la journee la plus stressante de ma vie et j’espère que Lu se fera retirée d’airbnb. Il ne devrait pas y avoir de place ici pour des gens comme ça.

This apartment is beautifully decorated, very clean, and so central. In 5 minutes you will reach the Notre Dame Cathedral! We found it very easy to get to other central Paris hotspots including the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, and many others. Amazing restaurants are all around, as well as book shops, clothes shops, and a handy supermarket. I could not more highly recommend this apartment, it was perfect for us during our trip to Paris.

Our friends of five stayed for a week in here and it was perfect. We loved coming back after a long day of exploring Paris to the comforts of home. The location is great - 10 minute walk to Notre Dame, 15 minute walk to the Louvre and the metro is right outside the door. It is a very lively area with lots of shops, places to eat and a grocery store a block away. Mo was at the apartment to welcome us after a long day of traveling and was extremely helpful. My friend hurt his hand and needed to go to the emergency room during our stay and Mo brought us where to go (the oldest hospital in the world is a 10 minute walk away!) and followed up with us to make sure he was okay. We could not have asked for better host!!

An outstanding stay! The apartment was exactly as advertised: clean, very well decorated & designed. The hostess could not have been more accommodating, responding instantaneously & having her close friends on site manage a key exchange or any little issue that came up. I cannot not recommend this apartment more! It was lovely, charming and comfortable.
