The flat is ideally located in the very center of Paris, north of Le Marais.
It is in the middle of the most trendy, lively and bobo area of Paris: Rue Oberkampf, filled with cafés, galleries, terraces, live music bars and shops and Rue JP Timbaud, with the best restaurants options in town.
It is within walking distance of the Canal St Martin, the Père Lachaise cemetery, Belleville and the romantic Parc des Buttes Chaumont. It is 5 mn cycling from the touristy area of Opera Bastille, Place des Vosges, Centre Pompidou, Musée Picasso.
The République Métro Station is a very well connected hub counting the majority of the lines, which is key in Paris. You are very close to Menilmontant and St Maur stations as well, counting with the lines 2 and 3 which connect directly to all important touristic sites.
There is a direct line to the Eiffel tower and Champs-Elysées.
There is a bike station at the foot of the building and the whole area is secured with bike lanes.
The flat is very cosy and convenient. It counts all the commodities needed for a couple of travellers, it is fully furnished and equipped.
The architecture is typically parisian, with wooden floors and high ceilings. The flat is on the 4th floor and counts big windows (double glazing) with an open view, which makes it very bright. The furnitures are a bobo mix of cosy contemporary design.
It counts a queen size convertible bed, with fresh linens and feathers duvet and pillows, a complete bathroom, a kitchen with everything to cook and a bar.
There is a washing machine in the bathroom.
Double glazing and black-out curtains will ensure you sleep quietly.
Safety code and armoured door with safety system. The area is very safe anyway.

HOW TO GET THERE
The République Station is the best connected. It is an easy reach from the train Station Gare du Nord (access train to CDG and Orly airports, Eurostar to London, Thalys to Brussels and Amsterdam) and Gare de Lyon (trains to the south, Lyon and Provence).
There are plenty of very good restaurants, cafés, lively bars and theatres at walking distance, as well as all the amenities, with traditional butcher, bakery, cheesemonger, fishmonger, quality grocery store, organic food shop, wine cellar, food markets, supermarket, etc... all this 5mn walk from the flat.
There is a gym and two swimming pools nearby, one of which with gardens and solarium.
The street Oberkampf counts the best cafés and jazz music bars in the city, it is very lively. The canal hosts the Hotel du Nord, very famous among artists and actors, the Café Prune and La Marine, nice traditional terraces, and Sesame, my favourite address for brunches and organic smoothies.
Although trendy, the area offers very reasonable prices. It is a fantastic option to discover the real Parisian life, far from the touristy clichés.
Well, I cannot write everything here, I am so enthusiastic about my neighborhood!
I gladly provide you with a booklet of all my personal recommendations and tips for going out, in the neighborhood as well as in other parts of the city which are worth it.
Please note that this is not an hotel, you are thus expected to leave it as clean as you found it. The cleaning fee covers the laundry and the regular maintenance of the flat, not the dishes and the trash.
There is everything in the flat to clean it (vaccum cleaner, detergents etc.). However, if you prefer to book the cleaning lady extra, please do it in advance because she has a busy schedule. Count approx 50 euros.
I am sure that you'll spend an enjoyable stay in Paris and feel like Parisians. Feel free to contact me if you have any question that could help you prepare your stay.
Give me as well some details about you!

Reviews for this host's other properties
This is a very nice apartment with plenty of room for four people. The location is very good with many restaurants nearby and easy access to the Metro.
Unfortunately the man who manages the property for the owners was very lax in his duties and did not respond to emails in a timely manner if at all. It also took him over three weeks to refund the security deposit when it was supposed to be done 24 hours after our departure.
Our friends arrived before we did and the code to open the door from the street given to us by Mathieu did not work. Eventually one of the tenants in the building let them into the courtyard area, but the there was no concierge to give them access to the elevator or stair to reach the apartment. One of the tenants again came to the rescue and got them keys for the inside door and the apartment and gave them the correct code for the outside door. This whole operation took over two hours which not a fun thing after a trans-Atlantic flight! My wife and I arrived at later in the day and were also locked out for about an hour before our friends saw us on the street and let us in. Once in the apartment we discovered that the promised fast wifi did not exist. Our friends were able to contact Mathieu’s wife (?) and she arranged for repairmen to come the next day to fix the internet connection. We lost about half a day waiting for these repairs to be done. Our friends had some pressing business issues back in Canada so were forced to buy internet time while waiting for the repairs to be done. When we finally were able to contact Mathieu he said he did not know the code had been changed and we had to give him the new code! An email asking to be reimbursed for the internet purchase has gone unanswered.
Mathieu knew there were four people coming to the apartment, but only three towels were set out for us; we were able to find more towels in one of the armoires. One of the beds did not have any sheets on it, so again we went on a search for sheets and finally found some.
We were not impressed with the management of this apartment or the person hired by the owners to manage it for them. Once the problems were resolved, everything went well and we enjoyed using the apartment.
One other annoying issue was the lock on the inside door that allowed access to the elevator and stairwell. The lock is very worn and sometimes takes several minutes in order to get the door open. On a couple of occasions we had to buzz in some of he other tenants which they also did for us as well.
The host cancelled the booking, this review is automated.
Apartment was in a good condition. We parked our car in a garage nearby for a week (not that cheap though) and some days in Rue Poulet. No problems while it was even placed under a No Parking sign.
Good bakery, supermarket nearby. Absolute very nice little restaurants in the neighborhood. And the Sacre Coeur at 10 minutes walking (visit it early in the morning for an excellent tourist free mediative moment).
All in all a great place to stay.
Wonderful appartment and area. Host gave lots of great ideas for sight seeing, eating and general.. Easy access to Metro. Highly recommend it.
Kontakt zu den Vermietern sehr unkompliziert und zuverlässig. Die Wohnung ist sehr geschmackvoll und gemütlich eingerichtet, ist sauber und die Möbel sind in einem sehr guten Zustand. Geschirr, Bettzeug, Handtücher etc. ausreichend und in gutem Zustand vorhanden Die Betten sind sehr bequem - nicht zu weich und nicht zu hart. Mehrere Metrostationen in unmittelbarer Nähe. Supermarkt, Bäckerei und gemütliche Kneipen im Viertel. Ruhige Lage und freundliche hilfsbereite Nachbarn im Haus. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.
El apartamento es tal y como se ve en las fotos, muy acogedor y agradable.
El único fallo es que los armarios estaban llenos y no teníamos sitio para colgar la ropa.
La ubicación muy buena, a un paseo del Sacre Cour y con una estación de metro cerca.
Alrededor, hay tiendas y supermercados para comprar comida, además de restaurantes de varios tipos.
Matt y Elisa son encantadores y estuvieron pendientes de que todo estuviera bien.
Nuestra estancia en Paris ha sido un placer, el apartamento era muy acogedor y comodo, nos hemos sentido como en casa.
Muy cerca de la estacion de metro , de muchas tiendas y restaurantes donde poder comer de manera asequible.
El edificio era tipicamente parisimo lo cual ayuda mucho para que te sientas realmente en Paris, se nota que sus dueños aman la música y la lectura, lo cual le da a la vivienda mucha personalidad.
María la conserje ha sido muy amable con mi familia.
Por todo esto recomiendo mucho este apartamento.
Lo más divertido el gran número de peluquerias para africanas en la Rue Poulet, desde luego una nota de color !!!!!
