Birdnest near the Canal St Martin - Budget - Top location - Budget
- Disabled access
This flat is my tiniest and the best located. It's cosy, newly furnished and equipped and ideal for a couple of travelers on a budget.
I like it very much but don't expect the Ritz.
The flat is located in the very center of Paris, north of Le Marais, in the middle of the trendy, lively and bobo area of Canal St Martin, filled with terraces, cafés, restaurants, live music bars and shops on the riverside.
Although trendy, the area still offers very reasonable prices. It is a fantastic option to discover the real Parisian life, far from the touristy clichés, with good customized tips and recos.
The flat is 5 mn cycling or 10mn walking from Opera Bastille, the cemetery Père Lachaise, Place des Vosges, Centre Pompidou, Musée Picasso and the romantic Parc des Buttes Chaumont. There is a bike station at the foot of the building.
Its metro station République is a major hub counting the majority of the lines, which is key in Paris to avoid changes. Direct lines to Champs Elysées, Opéra, Eiffel Tower, Hotel de Ville and Gare du Nord train station (CDG airport, London Eurostar, Thalys to Amsterdam and Brussels) are very convenient, especially for tourists.
The area counts all the amenities, with traditional butcher, bakery, cheesemonger, fishmarket, quality grocery store, organic food shop, wine cellar, supermarket, take-aways, and open air markets, all this 5mn walk from the flat.
There is a gym and two swimming pools nearby, one of which with gardens and solarium.
Well, I cannot write everything here, I am so enthusiastic about my neighborhood! I will 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. I live a few blocks from this flat.
The architecture of the flat itself is typically Parisian, the building used to be a horse barn in the times when the boats on the canal were pulled by horses. The flat counts only one big room, with a sofa converting into a queen size bed. A large window gives onto a quiet courtyard with plants, and counts a double glazing to ensure you sleep quietly.
It counts all the commodities needed for a couple of travelers:
- queen size bed, with fresh linens and feathers blanket
- a complete bathroom with shower, toilets, basin, hairdryer and clean towels
- a kitchenette with electric stoves, fridge, freezer, coffee machine, boiler and utensils to cook (but no oven).
- There is an iPod station on which you can plug your MP3 player of any brand (ipod dock+jack)
The building has a safety code, two entrance doors, and the flat counts an armoured door with safety system. The area is very safe anyway.
the flat is on the ground floor and gives onto a private courtyard, it is thus safe and quiet.
I provide :
- clean sheets and towels
- my wifi internet access codes you can use everywhere in Paris for free
- a whole list of my personal addresses, tips and recos
- a cleaning lady if you don’t want to clean the flat yourselves
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.
I'm looking forward to welcoming you soon!
No pets, no smoking, no big party. For the rest, enjoy!

from 3pm to 10pm, unless otherwise agreed before booking. If the flat is available before, you can have it, we're pretty flexible and we'll do our best to have it ready for your arrival.
before 11am, unless otherwise agreed before booking. If no guest is following you, you may stay longer in case of late departure, we still are pretty flexible :)
This is not an hotel, you are thus expected to leave the flat clean. The cleaning fee charged by wimdu only covers the laundry and the regular maintenance of the flat, not the waste and dishes. You may prefer to book the cleaning lady extra, please tell us in advance because she's a pretty busy calendar. Count 50 euros.
We will handle the laundry, please leave the bedsheets on the bed and the towels in the bathroom, we'll take it from there.
Please note that there is a safety deposit of 300 euros, to be deposited through paypal, and fully refundable same way, immediately at exit, upon satisfactory exit conditions. No cash.
Easy, transparent, safe and convenient for both parties.
Please make sure you do it before you leave your country because paypal might want to make a landline phone call to check that you are the sender.
