Old charming apartment 85 sq. 5 rooms, 2nd floor, very quiet, high ceilings, overlooking a flowery courtyard, in an lively district with numerous shops, restaurants and theaters. Very close to 2 metro stations.
The apartment has the charm of old parisian apartments. The 3 bedrooms, the kitchen (where we have our meals) and the bathroom have been renovated (some recently) and are fully equipped.
It is situated on the second floor, so you will not see the rooftops of Paris. But it is not dark: the ceilings are high and the opposite building has only two floors.
There is a bedroom with a double bed for a couple, a large children's room with two bunk beds (+ a mattress that can be added to the floor), a smaller room with a bed of 120 cm on a mezzanine, and two toilets.
The decoration is simple, functional, comfortable but unpretentious. The temperature is naturally temperate, it is never very cold or very hot, even in case of large variations in heat outside. The neighbors are quiet and we never hear any car noise.
The apartment is close to the Gare de l'Est and the Gare du Nord (2 stations from station Strasbourg-Saint-Denis). Through the line 4, you can reach directly the Gare Montparnasse in 25 mn. The Gare de Lyon is about 20 mn by subway with a change.
