Me and my roommate spent 5 months in this charming apartment at Parmentier and it was a super nice experience.
We received the apartment super clean and organized.
The apartment is great, it accommodates till 4 people in 1 double bed (mattress on the floor) and a 2 places convertible couch. The kitchen is super big and it counts with a stove and a fridge (No microwave). It also has a washing machine... There is no wardrobe available, but in the room you will find beyond the mattress on the floor, a hatstand and a rack where you can organize some of yours clothes and belongings The window is total blackout. The living room count on a convertible couch, a center table and a desk. The window is also total blackout. The bathroom is super clean and convenient. It is toilet, sink and bath with shower. It also has some shelves where you can organize your belongings. The building is safe: it has entrance door that can be opened with entry code or key-tag, and a second door leading to the stairs and the elevator.
NOTE: in order to pay the electricity and gas bills the hostess will request around + 100€ (hundred euros) in cash (PER PERSON) each month.
The neighborhood is super nice. The apartment street is super quiet, but you can find markets (opens Sunday), pharmacies, restaurants, nice bars and clubs in the surroundings (e.g: Oberkampf street).
It is also 15 minutes walking from Canal st.Martin and 20 minutes walking from République.
Finally, Isa is a perfect hostess. She is super polite and worry with the house. As she is super busy, maybe she can take some time to answer a request, or a question. Despite the delay, she always responds very politely.
Our stay were amazing!
I strongly recommend this apartment.
