The de Friedland flat is a charming, modern, spacious and comfortable home away

from home. It's location is superb! The owner was friendly, gracious and cooperative.

I recommend this accomodation to anyone who wants a truly Parisian experience right in the heart of the city.

Staying in your lovely flat in Paris made my trip to your city a remarkable adventure. It is the perfect alternative to a hotel and helped me feel like I was a true resident of my favorite international city. Your attention to detail, the lovely decor, the cleanliness, and the spacious rooms made my time there so comfortable.

Just a note to say how a great time we've had at your appartment. For us it was the perfect house. Central, safe, inspiring, beautifully decorated and with a special bedroom for our son Mick ( who plays the whole time metro with his train now)

Thad Stalcup. GA, USA

I would like to say that we had a wonderful time in Paris, and we really enjoyed our stay at your apartment.

We can not say enough about the apartment. We really feel that for the price we got a great deal. Great location, great decor, and with views of the Eiffel Tower and the Arch deTriumphe from the roof. What more could you want? Thanks again for being so easy to work with. We look forward to staying with you next time we are in Paris.

Faraliza Lee. HONK KONG

Just like to say how much my kids, my husband and I enjoyed staying at your loft. I hope we left it in good condition.

Thank you. I must say I appreciated very much on how you made a special effort to provide your rentees with those instruction guides.

Jennifer garland Ross. USA

We had a really great time and the apartment was perfect.

Thanks soo much for your assistance and I look forward to returning to Paris and staying in your apartment again.

I will defeintely refer you to my friends when they go to visit Paris.

Thank you again.


Your place is comfortable, extremely clean and well-equipped, and cozy.

We loved the location, which was both easily accessible to the Champs-Elysees and the Metro, and very quiet at night to allow for sleep. Your chart of all the local shops was extremely useful. Thanks for your attention to all the logistical details, and your kindness during our stay.

We will not hesitate to recommend your apartment to others visiting the City of Light! Sincerely.

Vicki Paradice. USA

Just a quick note to say thanks for your hospitality while we enjoyed your flat.

It was so great to have a real 'home' base so close to everything. The Paris Metro is really easy to use and we found all of the people very friendly.

It is very comfortable and we will certainly contact you when we come to Paris again.

Another Lovely Stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (2 adults, 2 teens) have just returned from Paris and our second stay in Philippe's loft apartment. The apartment is well appointed and immaculately clean. The kitchen is updated with new appliances and everything needed to prepare meals is available and easy to use. The living area is comfortable with faultless wifi reception, a well stocked media area, a television with access to english channels. Philippe has gone to great effort to provide a space that is well planned and comfortable. He also provides clear instructions on how to access and use everything in the flat from the appliances & electronics, to the windows and rubbish disposal. There is a binder with information on the local area including a map of the closest shops, bakeries, banks, etc. But one of the best features of this apartment is its location, just steps away from the Arc de Triumphe, the Champs-Elysees, and the Charles de Gaulle–Étoile metro station. It is ideally located with easy access to the sights, yet the apartment itself is quiet and peaceful. It faces an interior courtyard, and we frequently had the windows and skylights open without noticing much city noise. Do note that this is a loft apartment with stairs to access the bedrooms. It is also located at the top floor of an old building with a small lift that will take you only part of the way up. Ability and eagerness to climb a few stairs is a must when staying in many buildings in the city, and the same is true here. We hope to stay in Philippe's loft apartment again soon. We had a wonderful stay!

Cozy and convenient for our family of four

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (which includes two teenage boys) stayed in Philippe's loft for the second half of our European vacation — and couldn't be happier with our choice. The flat was perfect for us.

For starters, the location is incredible. The metro stop is literally just down the street; we used it frequently to visit attractions like the Louvre, Notre Dame or Montmartre. And on days when we wanted to do some exploring on foot, we were able to take comfortable walks to the Eiffel Tower ... and even chose to walk home from the Louvre one afternoon. The Arc, of course, is omnipresent, as it's just at the end of the street.

Grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants are nearby — and easy to pick out on the maps Philippe left for us.

The flat itself had everything our family needed -- and was a cozy reprieve when we wanted a few hours to decompress from exploring the city. The furniture and beds were extremely comfortable. The kitchen was outfitted with everything we needed for meals in. A DVD player and an entire drawer of movies (including a nice stack of English-speaking ones) made for some relaxing pre-bedtime evenings.

Though the flat is small, having two floors makes it feel bigger. It was nice for our family to be able to spread out and have our own space sometimes ... especially after traveling together for nearly two weeks!

As mentioned in other reviews, the (very small) elevator only goes to the third floor, so there are stairs to walk — but we didn't mind that one bit. It added to the charm, and helped us burn off some of that great French food we ate.

Prior to arriving in Paris, our family rented a houseboat on a canal in Amsterdam for five days. One would think THAT would've been the rental highlight of our trip. But no. All four of us agree that Phlippe's flat was our favorite home away from home (and, I'll add, at half the price of the houseboat!).

We highly recommend this flat, and will happily stay here again if our travels bring us back to Paris.

Comfortable and convenient

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled with our stay in Philippe's loft - he has thought of everything to make the apartment comfortable. The location is excellent - proximity to metro, restaurants and shopping. The stairs to the unit and inside make it not accessible to some people, so ask if that's a concern. For our family of four it was perfect - we hope to stay here on our next trip to Paris.

Perfect location in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We had four adults staying here for five nights and we loved it. The pictures pretty accurately describe it and for us it was fantastic. The beds were extremely comfortable and the apartment has all the appliances you could need to make it home for a few days in Paris. I was traveling with my wife and her two sisters so there were a couple of things that you may want to note. Mind you these weren’t at all problems, just things to keep in mind if you were, say, going with another couple. First off, there is the one bathroom. And while this wasn’t an issue, it did prove a bit challenging getting all of us “mirror time” when we were all getting ready for the day or to go out. Second, and this is difficult to explain, the apartment is very quiet- like silent-quiet. It’s an open loft that has a door that swings shut to divide the two bedrooms upstairs. This means that virtually every noise carries crystal clear throughout the whole loft. It’s a strange thing to say it was too quiet but if you had a little fan or something with you to provide a little white noise it might be useful. All in all this loft truly was perfect. If you’ve ever been to Paris, you know the metro system is among the best in the world. And this loft is maybe 500 feet from a metro station that is literally 3-6 stops to every single major attraction in Paris. We walked to the Eiffel Tower one night and took our time down the champs elysees and it took maybe 30 minutes, stopping for pictures and strolling around-so maybe. 20 minutes walk if headed straight there. Needless to say it’s extremely close to everything and if you are acquainted with the metro station just know the stop next to the loft can connect you to almost anywhere without even having to change trains. I want to say it was literally 3 stops to the Eiffel Tower and 5 stops to the louvre. Philippe, the owner, is super responsive and extremely nice and he made everything super easy and quick. He allowed us to check in early and leave late to accommodate our flight times. Overall, if you choose this property you will have a great experience in Paris.

Perfect place for a week in Paris

  • 5 of 5

What a week in Paris! Philippe and his loft turned a great trip into an unforgettable experience.

One of the real pluses to this flat is location, location, location! The flat is in a very safe area, less than a 2 minute walk from the Arc de Triomphe and the Champs-Elysees, as well as metro and bus stops. Transportation was a breeze. No need to rent a car. We took a bus directly from CDG to the Arc. We felt very safe walking with our luggage from the bus stop to the flat.

Philippe’s attention to detail is what made staying in his loft effortless. There were bound instruction booklets, with pictures, that guide you in the use of the flat. From the television to the toaster, if we had a question, we could find the answer at our fingertips.

The kitchen was stocked almost as well as ours at home. Any, pot, pan, utensil, plate, glass, herb, or spice we could possibly need was on hand. In an effort to save money, we ate half of our dinners in, so the well-stocked kitchen was a real plus. There are many amazing bakeries close by for breakfast, as well as fabulous cafes and restaurants for dinner. All within walking distance.

The flat accommodated our group of 4 adults and 1 toddler well. Because the flat is on 2 levels, we never felt over crowded, like we would have, if all of us had stayed in a hotel room. The beds were very comfortable and the duvets kept us toasty. The furniture was cozy and functional. The Wi-Fi, television, cable, and sound system all worked well.

The flat was very clean and well maintained. Philippe has stocked the flat so well, that there were even multiple choices of air fresheners to choose from in the WC. The pictures posted with this listing are very accurate.

There is only one caveat I might mention. The elevator gets you most of the way up to the flat, but some stair climbing is still necessary. I think, however, that the stairs add to the charm of this amazing flat. There are steep stairs to the loft, but our 3-year-old was able to manage fine. A young 2-year-old on the stairs would have been more difficult.

We have always wanted to run away and live in an artist’s loft in Paris. Thanks to Philippe, we could make that dream come true. (Even if it was only for a week.)
