"En octobre... Brrr"
L'appartement s'avère être une chambre bien petite, humide et froide... Avis au voyageurs d'automne : le chauffage débute à la mi-octobre, quelque soit la température extérieure !… More
Chere Chantal, merci pour votre message. Cette année, le mois d'octobre a été plus froid que d habitude, donc des que vous m avez dit qu il faisait froid, j ai immédatement demandé a l immeuble de mettre le chauffage en route. Cela a mis qques jours. Mais j ai acheté un chauffage supplémentaire pour les futurs voyageurs. Cela ne recommencera pas. Désolé encore :-( Si jamais vous revenez a Paris, n hesitez pas a me rappeler et je vous ferai une belle reduction sur votre séjour.

"Modern, secure, studio-like apt, great bed, wonderful landlord, charming neighborhood, access to the whole city."
I have stayed at two of Christophe's properties (La Boulangerie and Laundry Loft). They are both small, very clean, modern, functional, well-equipped, excellent water pressure for the showers. The beds can't be beat. The properties are located bit away from the madding crowd in a friendly, culturally interesting neighborhood with easy access to public transportation (metro, bus lines, bike rental) to quickly reach all the great places of Paris. Christophe speaks English and is a terrific landlord who took me on a walking tour of the neighborhood and was helpful in every way. The climb to the bed loft in La Boulangerie would be difficult for a person of limited mobility, while at the Laundry Loft all is on a single floor. I loved that both these apts. were on street level and with excellent security. WIFI and TV worked well (BBC is comforting after a daylong city exploration while practicing my French). I felt cozily at home in both apartments. Thank you, Christophe, for helping make my holidays happy.

"Live like a Parisian"
This owner cares about his guests. Christophe gave us a tour of the neighborhood to show us where the locals eat and shop. This apartment is best for a couple. We thought the sofa was a bed but Christophe came to the rescue and provided a mattress so all was great. He will even print off boarding passes etc and deliver them to you. The bedroom is a loft type. It has a lower ceiling so if you are tall I wouldn't recommend it. The apartment had everything we needed.

"Great host, great location and the most comfortable bed we have slept on in a long time!"
Thanks Christophe for a wonderful stay in your beautiful Parisian apartment! It was fully equipped with everything you would ever need for a comfortable stay. The bed was very comfortable and gave us a very good nights sleep to set us up for a great day. The location was perfect as it was a few mins walk to the metro. Thank you again and I would highly recommend.
thank you !!! all the best to you and your family :-)

"Perfect in Paris"
Review of Atelier 34 Apartment -
Our family of four (2 adults, 1 teen and 1 pre-schooler) stayed here for two weeks in July. While it is a studio, we still felt we had enough room for the four… More

"Boulangerie House- a great place to stay"
My husband and I stayed a week at the Boulangerie House. The owner, Christophe, met us, showed us around the neighborhood and was always available to help us. The only drawback to the property was the 5 foot ceiling in the sleeping loft. This was especially problematic if you are tall or have to go downstairs to the bathroom during the night. The location was very good, with easy access to two metro lines. The apartment was immaculate and comfortable.

"Atelier 34 - Perfect"
My daughter and I just returned from a week long stay in Paris, at Atelier 34. It was the perfect blend of holiday and apartment living for us. It is very close to the Metro, so getting around was very easy. The neighborhood is busy, but not overly so. I loved the courtyard, and enjoyed visiting area markets and groceries. The apartment was larger than I expected, so we never felt crowded or on top of one another (difficult with a typical messy 14 year old). And on the subject of typical teens, the WiFi was key. Christophe is a fabulous host - he showed us around our first day and even helped me arrange for a taxi to take us to the airport at 4:30am. I wouldn't ever consider a Paris hotel again knowing I can trust any one of Christophe's properties to be clean and lovely - and I have already recommended Atelier 34 to a friend.
Merci for your cute review and recomendations ! I wish you all the best to you and your cute family. Warm regards. Chris

"The Best Place to stay in Paris is here"
This is probably the best place to stay if you want everything near to you, quiet and out of the noisy street life (really !), safe and secure, with a lovely owner who will take his trouble to look after you.
1. The Lafayette Department stores are just 5 minutes down the road. That is also where you pick up the tourist open top buses.
2. 3 Metro stations within 1 minute walking distance.
3. The main intercity train station is 1 minute away. If you came by train, its so easy.
4. Halal kebab house less than 2 minutes.
Nice trendy cafes, small convenience stores just down the road. You really are in the middle of town but won't feel it when you enter the apartment.
Chris the owner speaks practically all the main Languages and is great. You have wifi, TV, washing machine, kitchen, shower, towels, double bed. What more can you ask for. I will definitely make it a point to come back.
Dear Razman, thank you for your sweet review. It has been a pleasure meeting you and hosting you. I wish you all the best and to your family too. Warm regards. Chris
