Be warned, don’t stay here! Very disappointing! Although we have stayed here before, the quality of this apartment has deteriorated.
We encountered the noisy building work on our arrival at 14.45. The sofa-bed gradually became unbearable to sleep on. We noticed it had a dip in the middle, which led to sleepless nights throughout the six nights we booked to stay here.
We mentioned this to Herve, he said we were the first to inform him of this. However, after reading more recent reviews on his apartment on booking.com we discovered others have commented. We obviously wished we had read these reviews before booking this time around!
Herve's response to the bed was to ask us ‘What can I do?’ Our response was, 'buy a new bed'. He replied, 'It is impossible to buy a bed in Paris'.
A strong smell of damp is also noticeable each time you enter. Each evening we were forced to open the door to the balcony to allow air through the room, however this also made the room very cold.
We informed Herve and asked if we could be given an extra duvet. He replied that he might have one in his basement - the duvet never arrived.
The duvet that was supplied felt old and worn-out, almost as though it had not been washed for sometime. As there were no buttons on the duvet cover, the duvet was permanently exposed.
We found the industrial building work taking place next door mind numbing. The noise started at 08.00 to approximately 15.30. Herve could have warned us about this during the booking process. His response was we should have been able to rest and sleep during the weekend. We found his comment highly offensive. It truly ruined our holiday.
By the end of the stay, we were totally exhausted and angry that we were bluffed into staying in a space that has so many issues. I only wish Herve was as honest as we are with this review.
All in all we found his attitude to be arrogant. I strongly suggest that you seek alternative accommodation of which there are many in Paris.
On a positive note Ourcq is a fantastic place to be, and only four stops from Gare du Nord.
Overall it was a nice stay in Paris!
Communication with Herve went on site very friendly.
He was very nice and speaks English.
His apartment is very clean, has everything you need and is quite centrally located.
The bathroom is very spacious by French standards and modern gestaltet.Ich felt very comfortable in it.
The apartment is exactly as pictured. There is now a small flat screen TV, if you need this ....., we have the television but not used.
Otherwise, you should possibly bring earplugs if you need to sleep absolute rest, because the house is quite noisy. For the trifles therefore a star deduction.
But we would not hesitate to book it again. :-)
Insgesamt war es ein schöner Aufenthalt in Paris!
Die Kommunikation mit Herve verlief vor Ort sehr freundlich.
Er war sehr nett und spricht Englisch.
Seine Wohnung ist sehr sauber, hat alles was sie braucht und ist recht zentral gelegen.
Das Bad ist für französische Verhältnisse sehr geräumig und modern gestaltet.Ich fühlte mich sehr wohl darin.
Die Wohnung ist genau wie abgebildet. Es gibt mittlerweile einen kleinen Flachbild TV, sofern man diesen benötigt....., wir haben den Fernseher allerdings nicht genutzt.
Ansonsten sollte man sich ggf Ohrstöpsel mitbringen wenn man zum Schlafen absolute Ruhe braucht, denn das Haus ist recht hellhörig. Für die Kleinigkeiten daher einen Stern Abzug.
Wir würden es aber jederzeit wieder buchen. :-)
We were very pleased with the apartment. The apartment was exactly the description and we felt very comfortable. Herve was very nice and very reliable. The whole process and the communication were simple and everything was as it should be. In another trip to Paris we would take the property immediately.
Wir waren sehr zufrieden mit der Wohnung. Die Wohnung entsprach genau der Beschreibung und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Herve war total nett und sehr zuverlässig. Der gesamte Ablauf und die Kommunikation waren unkompliziert und alles lief so, wie es sein soll. Bei einer weiteren Parisreise würden wir die Unterkunft sofort wieder nehmen.
The booking was easy and fast. Timely contact the lessor. Times were all complied with correctly. Hervé is a kompetener, very obliging owner, who even gave me an underground parking space. The studio is set up as in the picture, all small and fine.
The location is completely i.O. Supermarket, bakers and butchers nearby. 700 m to the metro. We would come back.
Die Reservierung war einfach und schnell. Zeitnahe Kontaktaufnahme durch den Vermieter. Zeiten wurden alle korrekt eingehalten. Hervé ist ein kompetener, sehr zuvorkommender Vermieter, der mir sogar einen Tiefgaragenstellplatz vermittelte. Das Studio ist wie auf dem Bild eingerichtet, alles klein und fein.
Die Lage ist völlig i.O. Supermarkt, Bäcker und Metzger in der Nähe. 700 m zur Metro. Wir würden wieder kommen.
The accommodation is suitable for 2 people and very well equipped.
Find self-catering: a microwave, induction hob, fridge freezer, coffee maker, kettle, toaster, small dishwasher and even a washing machine !! Crockery and cutlery are also plentiful.
The bathroom is very generous for the size of the apartment.
There is also: free WIFI, television and radio (unfortunately only in French).
For sleeping you have to modify a sofa bed.
We have, however, in contrast to our previous tenants, not really slept well on it.
The apartment is close to Metro and bus station and the transport system is clearly designed.
Herve is very friendly and gave us the interior of the house explained in detail and brought us closer the mass transit system. He has also organized us a parking space in the underground garage of the house.
We can use the Property.
Die Unterkunft ist für 2 Personen gut geeignet und sehr gut ausgestattet.
Selbstversorger finden: eine Microwelle, Induktionskochfeld, Kühlschrank mit Gefrierfach, Kaffeemaschine, Wasserkocher, Toaster, eine kleine Spülmaschine und sogar eine Waschmaschine!! Geschirr und Besteck sind auch ausreichend vorhanden.
Das Bad ist, für die Größe der Wohnung, sehr großzügig bemessen.
Es gibt auch noch: freies WIFI, Fernseher und Radio (leider nur in französisch).
Zum Schlafen muß man eine Schlafcouch umbauen.
Wir haben allerdings, im Gegensatz zu unseren Vormietern, nicht wirklich gut darauf geschlafen.
Die Wohnung liegt nahe an Metro und Busstation und das Transportsystem ist übersichtlich gestaltet.
Herve ist sehr freundlich und hat uns die Einrichtung der Wohnung genau erklärt sowie uns das Nahverkehrssystem näher gebracht. Auch hat er uns einen Parkplatz in der Tiefgarage des Hauses organisiert.
Wir können die Unterkunft weiterempfehlen.
I made this reservation for my sister. She stayed there with her boyfriend. Everything was just perfect. The apartment was clean and very nice, with anything you could need.
Returning to Herve's most charming studio made our second stay in this fantastic city so homely. As we knew what to expect from this super clean, well equipped, safe apartment, we could get on with exploring Paris with ease.
Ourcq will serve as your local metro station and is only four stops away from Gare du Nord on Line 5. The area has the usual mix of lovely bakers, butchers and supermarkets. There is even a fantastic park called Parc des Buttes Chaumount a five minute walk away.
We highly recommend this cute place, and Herve is also a really lovely welcoming guy.
It was a really nice time in Herve's apartment. Everything looks the same way as you can see in the pictures: the sleeping-coach is really comfortable and the little balcony is nice for having breakfast or dinner. The kitchen is useful and allows you to prepare little meals without problems. The bathroom is big enough and clean, as the rest of the appartment.
My girlfriend and me like it really much so I can only recommend this appartment for everyone. It is well situated (just 5 min. to the metro station Ourcq) and there is a beautiful park which you can reach by walking 2 mins.
Herve is a really kind and nice man and took the time to explain us everything and help us with any kind of questions.
Great location, great facilities, and great host. There are a big mart, some supermarkets and boulangeries close to this studio. It's a 5 minute walk to all of them. Especially, one of the supermarkets opens until 10 pm. It was very useful because so many stores in Paris usually close too early for tourists who have no enough time to go to mart in the daytime. The studio was so clean and neat, especially the bathroom. The host, Herve is so kind and tries to help the guests. I really thank him so much. I want to stay in this studio if I go Paris again.
small but nice! The sofa bed is very comfortable, the location is quiet to the rear, the shower fantastic. The small kitchenette we used only for breakfast, but everything was available. And the shops around are very good: a mini supermarket to 23 clock, a wonderful organic bakery. Not very far to the metro, from there only 5 stops to Gare de l'Est. And walk from the apartment is only a few minutes in the wonderful Parc des Buttes Chaumont, a green oasis in Paris! From there continue along the canal in the downtown - a nice walk through quiet side streets. So the location is very good, and the studio was very friendly in perfect condition, the reception. We recommend!
Klein, aber fein! Das Schlafsofa ist sehr bequem, die Lage nach hinten ist ruhig, die Dusche fantastisch. Die kleine Küchenecke haben wir nur zum Frühstück benutzt, aber dafür war alles vorhanden. Und die Läden der Umgebung sind sehr gut: ein Mini-Supermarkt bis 23 Uhr, ein wunderbarer Bio-Bäcker. Nicht sehr weit zur Metro, von dort nur 5 Stationen bis Gare de l'Est. Und zu Fuß von der Wohnung ist man in wenigen Minuten im wundervollen Parc des Buttes Chaumont, eine grüne Oase in Paris! Von dort weiter über den Kanal in die Innenstadt - eine schöne Wanderung durch ruhige Seitenstraßen. Die Lage ist also sehr gut, und das Studio war in perfektem Zustand, der Empfang sehr freundlich. Sehr zu empfehlen!
