Why Jocelyne chose Quartier de la Gare
I bought this place because it is incredibly bright. Situated on the 8th floor we have a great view. (often in Paris streets are narrow and the view is limited). From the window, we see the Stade Charlety, and 4 stations away with the tramway we are in the wonderful Parc de Monsouris. It is not in the very center of Paris but 6 minutes away to 2 metro stations, bus no 47 that take you to the center in 20 minutes. In 2001, Robert, my husband and I moved to the Washington Area, where he got a position. Until March 2011 we rented it to an elderly lady. Summer 2011 we renovated completely and furnished it with modern appliances and furniture. As we are still working in Maryland, it is free a great part of the years. As a French teacher, I am friendly with many of my students and I decided to share my place with them when they come to Paris. I provide them with my best tips and information to make their visits more enjoyable and stress free. I love meeting new people and help them with the French language and culture.
What makes this Apartment unique
I love the fresh market on avenue d’Italie, (7 mns walk), on Thursdays and Sundays morning. Also we have several supermarkets and numerous restaurants all all around. Also, when I am in Paris, I am very often alone and I don’t have any problem to come home late at night from the Maison Blanche metro station. On Sundays morning, I love to take a walk to the François Mitterand bibliotheque’s area. There, I go to the MK2 movies theather. There are many large, wonderful and confortable theaters. The matinee tickets are only 6 Euros, then I go to have lunch around or walk along the Seine. When the weather is not good, I take the newest metro line number 14, and in a few minutes I am in Paris center, or I can stop at Bercy and have lunch in the “Bercy Village” area, not well known by tourists.

Clean, spacious and conveniently located...
I've stayed in this apartment on 4 or 5 different occasions now. For me, when traveling all the way from the US, it's very important that I can trust that the apartment will be ready when I arrive - and it always is. Also, it is very close to both Maison Blanche & Porte de Choisy metro stations. There is also a Sunday market on Avenue d'Italie which is right next to the Maison Blanche station. I've stayed in the apartment by myself, but I believe it could comfortably accommodate 3 - 4 people.
The apt. was just as described - very nice, small, clean and very bright and cheerful. It was in Chinatown and somewhat removed from the sights of Paris. The Metro was a 5 minute walk but it took time to learn our way and the routes We had several difficulties getting the apt. key and never did master how to open the door correctly. Our biggest problem was that we didn't speak much French. If we ever rent an apt. again, we will be sure that there is an on-site manager or contact for help - especially if we don't speak the language. Jocelyne tried to be very helpful but we needed someone on site. We also had some difficulty operating the washing machine/dryer. The bed was very comfortable and the shower also was very good.
Truly a hidden gem
This was my first unguided trip to Paris. There were 2 adults in the party. Renting this apartment was the best decision I made. First off, the pictures truly represent the apartment. It is cozy and perfect for 2-3. ( 4 people is pushing it.)
The absolute best part about this place is that it is extremely clean ( no weird smells, no mold, no dust, no pests). I am very particular about smells and cleanliness. Just to give you an example, I smell and inspect all hotel sheets and pillows before I sleep. The linens and towels were standard and very clean.
1. very convenient and safe location.
a. less than 5 minute walk to metro
b. great restaurants nearby
c. 3 awesome bakeries within 2-5 walk
2. far enough from the " craziness." After walking around for 8 plus hours with so much stimulation, its nice to go home and relax.
3. Jocelyne, the owner, is extremely responsive and pleasant to work with.
4. Internet worked great
The only bad thing, if one could call it, was that the cable tv did not work during my entire week there, despite hard resets, turning everything off.
Overall I would definitely consider staying here again!
Very nice place
This apartment is very convenient and thoughtfully equipped by the owner to meet every need of the traveller. Neat, clean and compact, the place has adequate storage with cupboards and drawers. The Wi-Fi signal is very strong and good. We especially found the iron and iron board very useful. The apartment sleeps 4 comfortably and will be really convenient for 2 adults & 2 children.
The apartment is located just 5 minutes walk away from the Metro station on Line 7. (Porte de Choissy) This line is very convenient to change trains and visit all parts of Paris. There is an EXO store right below & a big super market 5 minutes away. There is even a MonoPrix within 10 minutes walk. Don't miss the bakery just across the apartment road on the right, near the traffic light. You get the most delicious French loaves and croissants there! But you must go early or stock runs out!!
The apartment is in a very nice building and safe and secure. Also, the Gare de Lyon station is near and reachable by taxi within 10 minutes, in case of any European travel plans.
I was very happy with my stay and would definitely consider staying there again if the opportunity arises.
I've lived a really nice experience in Paris. The apartement was very nice and confortable. It is fully equipped. All the machines worked well.
I strongly recommend rent this apartement, it's easy to arrive from both airports, and its location is good with a really nice neibourghood called " butte aux cailles" near it.
The room is clean and spacious for one people. I like cleaning lady come to clean up every Tuesday afternoon. It is just like hotel house keeping service. I do not have to clean up. The location is good and center of Paris China town. I really enjoyed parade and lion mask dancing in the Chinese happy new years days. I also liked to enjoy shopping at Marche at 5 minute walking distance in the morning on every Thursday and Sunday. There are a lot of stores selling fruits, vegetables, fishes, sausages, bread, cakes, cheese, chicken and juice. They are fresh and cheaper than supermarket. I would like to come back for my next visit.
Direct tramway to Porte de Versailles and Stade Charlety. Great farmer market on Thursdays and Sundays. Grocery stores open on Sundays. Biggest movie theater in Paris, MK2 Bibliotheque, buses 62 and 64 in less than 10 minutes.
