Located in the new district of the Bibliotheque National de France (National Library), the 13th arrondissement is not (yet) known for tourism and is a popular area where actual parisians live!
This 53 sqm flat is the perfect home base to visit Paris. It is at the first floor of a 3 level building (from 1900).
The flat has been renovated in 2011, is clean, beautiful, warm and spacious (for Paris).
You will enjoy a modern appartment with a spacious living room with an open plan and fully equipped modern kitchen and a comfortable lounge area (there is a convertible couch which can accomodate 2 extra people). No TV, but a projector is available if you are in a mood for a movie! There is a bar from where your friends can admire you cooking while enjoying a drink. The dining table can seat up to eight persons. The bedroom is the rather romantic with a queen size double bed, a chimney, an antic mirror and ceiling moldings ! The bathroom is modern with a big italian shower.
It is the perfect home base to visit Paris. It is next to the automatic metro line (n°14) which bring you at the other side of Paris in less than 20min ! also next to city bikes, the Tramway 3a and RER C. Lots of fine groceries to enjoy good wines, cheeses, bread, meat, veggies...
Payment is on arrival.
Pretty cool on check-in/check-out time.
Non smoking flat but if you really want one, you can smoke at the window (I trust you but be careful ;-)
My name is Sylvain, I am the opposite of what you could think of French guys: I take a shower every day, I am not as 'self confident' as my fellow citizens, I am curious, open minded and rather positive which is a feat here in France!
I also like Paris, there are very nice things to do here I would be happy to share with you!
See you soon!
