Guestbook comments from the manager


We really enjoyed our holiday in Paris, and our apartment was ideal. Not too many stairs to manage with the luggage, as it was only up one flight of stairs. The self-check in was remarkably easy, due to the very detailed photographs and instructions provided. Bastille is a very busy area, and we were thrilled to find out that although the street outside was noisy, our apartment had no external walls and overlooked a quiet garden in a quiet apartment complex. It was light, airy and spacious, and we will stay there again in future!

Large apartment, quiet, good location.

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is quite secure and private. You access the apartment complex through two locked doors and take a walk across a large, attractive courtyard to reach the building entrance which means that the apartment is well removed from the surrounding streets and very quiet. The apartment itself is large and airy by Paris standards and provides plenty of room to spread out. Notwithstanding a few maintenance shortcomings in the apartment itself, the apartment complex is well maintained by a full-time staff and all of the systems (heating, plumbing, electric) worked as expected (though we did not try the dishwasher and used the washer/dryer only for drying towels). Moreover, we came to appreciate that the complex was well built – the building was dead quiet and well insulated.

The location is very convenient. The Bastille metro station is a short (less than 5 minute) walk and it is served by three metro lines. It was relatively simple to find efficient metro connections to most places in Paris. Also, there is a large taxi stop within a block of the metro stations and it appeared that taxi access would be simple (though we used the metro exclusively). The apartment is also a very short walk from Blvd Richard Lenoir which is the home of the Bastille marche on Sundays and Wednesdays. If you are not familiar with Paris’ open air markets, they are a must for your visit, and Bastille is among the largest and best. Most of the residents in the neighborhood are young singles (we saw relatively few seniors or children) and the neighborhood, while not fancy, had good energy. There were plenty of restaurants and bars within a two block radius as well as patisseries and grocery stores (two within a block of the front door of the complex).

As noted above, we found a few shortcomings inside the apartment. The flooring was buckled in some areas and the baseboard was pulled away from the wall in the bedroom and entry. We guessed that there had been some form of plumbing issue that has not been properly fixed. Also, the blinds in the living room were poorly mounted and were in poor repair. We did not attempt to operate one blind for fear that it might fall from the wall. Last, the apartment furnishings and equipment could use a bit of an upgrade. None of this proved to be a substantial issue and it all could be fixed with a very modest investment by the apartment owner.As a last note, the immediate area of the apartment appeared to be a bit sketchy

Convenient appartment, very calm, although situated in a busy part of Paris

  • 4 of 5

The appartement is located at an intersection with busy rue de La Roquette and is only 5 minutes walk to Bastille. The appartement itself is within a renovated building, and overlooks an inside garden. So it is very quiet for those (like me) who value this immensely.

Inside the appartment situated on the second floor (premier étage en français), it had what you need and expect. However we could not take advantage of the bow window, as there were no curtains, but only office shutters, which needed to be closed unless you don't care about anyone seeing you undressed (temperature was over 30 during my stay). The furniture was also cheap (Ikea sort) and could be improved.

I still recommend the place for the two main drivers for me: location in a great lively place of Paris and still as quiet as it can be.

Paris weekend at Midi apt

  • 4 of 5

I stayed in this apartment with my two older daughters - the location was great ! The full wall of windows was perfect for a small apartment giving a lot of light and spaciousness! The apartment complex was lovely and very quiet on a wonderful street.

The supplies for the apartment could be upgraded - one roll of toilet paper - had to buy additional rolls late night - not what I wanted to be doing. Towels a little thin. No paper towels .

Owner's Response: Hi Carla, Thanks for your kind review. The apartment is indeed in a great location, is very quiet and bathes in light ! As detailed in the documents we sent you before your stay, contrarily to an hotel, consumables have to be bought by the guests. We obviously provide the basics for arrival. Sincerely, Jean-Noel

Very convenient apartment

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Paris many times since we lived in Europe 30 years ago and this time we decided to try an apartment rather than a was a good choice. The Roquette apartment was just right for our stay and we really loved the lively neighborhood, the close proximity to the Metro at Place de la Bastille, and the quiet atmosphere off the pleasant courtyard. Our bedroom was as quiet as a cemetery!

We also appreciated the spaciousness of the apartment - the large living room, the separate hallway with bathroom and water closet at either end, and the completely separate bedroom. Storage and closet space was quite adequate and a kitchen at the other end of the living/dining room was provided, as well. As we were there for 10 days, I also did a lot of cooking and that worked out in a satisfactory manner, as well, although the stove was a challenge to begin with. The caretaker for the apartment was also available to answer our questions and address any concerns that came up. This was our best trip to Paris yet, and I'm sure having this very convenient apartment was a part of that equation. I recommend it.

Two Weeks in Paris in this beautiful spot!

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of spending two weeks this month ( July 15) in this lovely apartment. The location right off of Rue de la Roquette was perfect for our daily treks across Paris. The Bastille metro is steps away, markets are conveniently nearby, and restaurants abound. The energy of the Bastille is near, however this apartment looks over a beautiful interior garden providing a quiet oasis from the city. The apartment is well appointed, beds are comfortable and the living space is roomy. The kitchen is great and includes modern amenities. Each day as awoke we were well rested, and each day when we returned from our Parisian adventures would declare " we're home". We will definitely remember this trip and this beautiful spot.
