Reviews of this property
Erik is an excellent host, very welcoming and helpful. He is very quick in answering the questions and provides all information you need. I definitely recommend to stay at Erik's place - you will enjoy it!
The aparment is really great and in a very good location. It is bright an comfortable and has all things you need vor your stay.
Our stay in the cozy Erik’s studio was excellent. Well located just 2 minutes walk to Marx Dormoy tube (12 line) station and with everything you could need (public market,boulangerie,bistrot and so on) very handy. The studio is clean with beautiful windows on Paris roofs, well equipped cooking place/living room, small bathroom and bedroom.
Erik is a very good host, friendly with a clear and easy communication.
Erik`s Wohnung hat mir sehr gut gefallen, v. a. die guten Einkaufsmöglichkeiten um die Ecke, Bäckereien, 2 Supermärkte und eine grosse Markthalle. Die Wohnung war sauber und mit allem Nötigen ausgestattet. Die U-Bahn-Station Marx Dormoy ist auch gleich um die Ecke.
Die Wohnung und das Haus sind ruhig, abgesehen von leisem Lärm aus den umliegenden Cafés wenn man die Fenster öffnet. Das hat mich aber nicht im geringsten gestört, im Gegenteil.
Das Zimmer von Eric liegt toll; kl. Fußgängerzone, kl. Markthalle, alternatives kl. Restaurant - Olive. Die Schlüsselübergabe war von Eric, der nicht vor Ort war, gut organisiert.
Einzigstes Manko der Wohnung; die von den Vormietern zurückgelassenden Waschutensilien, und die Lebensmittelreste etc. sollten doch lieber entsorgt werden.
L'appartement de Erik était comme décrit. Erik est vraiment arrangeant. Parfait.
L'endroit est calme. La rue vivante si on ne souhaite pas "repartir" trop loin pour manger le soir.
Wir waren schon im Mai in Eriks Wohnung. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt- alles super geklappt und sehr gemütliche Wohnung. Eine quirlige, bunte Gegend.
Very nice and helpful contact; the flat is very nice.
We enjoyed the days and we recommend it very warmly.
The apartment was very nice and very near to the metro station.
We liked the apartment and can absolutely recommend it.
I stayed 2 periods so I can write 2 comments. I use them both due to an inappropriate rating on me that Erik wrote in RESPONSE of my 1st rating on his accomodation (under this one).
My WIMDU-rating written by Erik (I scored 2/10):
This boy is just too complicated and disrespectful: it does not respect schedules appointments, does not respond to the message when attempting to contact, always finds excuses to criticize, never satisfied yet comfortable conditions (it must luxury). I personally lent him my bike to help him, I found it broken, Nick does not have apologized, and did not warn me. The apartment was well noted "no wifi", I gave him my codes hotspot, it does not suit him. Yet he twice rented my apartment. Short! really too complicated, too young to be serious. I highly not recommend! ) .
Thank you Erik...
Is it to complicated to handle one complaint-mail (note: respectfully written) on the big things that were not as agreed on, or things that were an unpleasant surprise like the buildingworks.
Notes on Erik's message:
SATISFACTION & RESPECT - Even during my one complaint-message I stayed respectful and noted the good things about the accomodation and tried to flatter him to keep a good communication. Ex. " I like the personal touches you have given to the appartment, I know you are full of good intentions, I'm convinced you are a great person, etc..."
THE BIKE - We agreed on the bike in advance, Sylvina gave the key at my arrival. It was a normal bike but unfortunately the back axis broke during riding towards work, it was an old bike, I had to travel by metro for 7 days. I did try to repare it but I couldn't. I informed the contactperson Sylvina about it at my departure,we agreed this wasn't at all my fault but due to the accumulating cracks in the axis that happen over the years.
SCHEDULE APPOINTMENTS - Among the 4 scheduled arrivals and departures there was 1 time we agreed 16:30h ("seize heure") trough the phone, I thought it was 18:30h ("six heure")... Sylvina had to wait for me, I felt really bad about it, made good apologies for it and try to make it right by cleaning the apprtment more than I should.
WIFI - I asked specifically if WIFI was included in the price & he said that it was... I don't know how you can answer such question the wrong way without being dishonest towards a client and expecting no complaint about it... The codes I received for the hotspots (3 in total) didn't work or were codes where you have to confirm a code each time you visit another website-page...
I send a complaint mail which mentioned following subjects:
1. works building
3. kitchen equipment
I asked him to make this things right, and how we can do this. I received an inappropriate response with the ending quote:
If you don't like the appartment, you can leave, no refunds.
It's a pitty to conclude this experience this way, make your own conclusions.
Appartment = OK
neighbourhood = Not OK
Host Sylvina = OK!
Host = Not OK
Greetings, Chose your accomodation wisely & Enjoy your Trip!
I'm a student, followed an internship of 8 weeks in Paris and I've fallen in love with the city. I had a beautiful time here.
Fo the accomodation I chose to book different places, most of the time I stayed in this appartment (6weeks total: 2 periods of 3 weeks booked -in advance-).
I'm an easy-going guy with no high demands, I'm a student and a frequent traveller, I adapt really quickly... I had a beautiful stay in paris, It was an unforgettable experience and I will never forget but I have to be honest.... When you ask me to give a rating on the accomodation as itself it could be better:
Good things about the accomodation:
+ I had a very good contact with the middleperson Sylvina, she was a very nice person and helped me a couple of times during my stay. (one time we had a problem with my first checking-out = a misunderstanding in hour (my french isn't as good as it should be :-) ) but I did everything to make this right.
+ You have plenty of room, it's a very big appartment with an open feeling
+ Nice street during the day, beautiful, alive and there are some good bars
+ Definitely suitable for more than 2 persons
+ A (fresh) market right beneath you
+ Metro 1-2 minutes walking away
- The quiet neighbourhood... Almost every day (week & weekend) there were
OR drunk guys and women (not the good and funny ones) screaming until at least 12PM
OR there was some fight between rivalising groups (aged 15-24) at my doorstep = Many nights I didn't sleep well, I didn't liked this at all. You can here everything very clear because there is no double glass installed in the windows
- Following on the things above: I didnt go out as often I wanted to during the evenings/ nights due to these kind of people at my doorstep. The times I did i didn't fight or something, but 3 times I've experienced some agressivity with contact(!) by these ridiculous people.
ex.: They ask a sigaret, i say no, push me several times, threaten me, following, NO fighting but this is definitely not pleasant. During the weekends my girlfriend was with me, if these people see a beutiful women it isn't funny as well...
- There were works on the building (la façade) during the whole stay, Erik did not mention this in advance. I didn't apreciate this.
- We agreed a price for the 6 weeks which included Gas, Water, Wifi, etc. There was and is no NO wifi. I asked specifically if there was WIFI, if I knew there wasn't i wouldn't have booked this accomodation...
- Fully equiped kitchen doesn't include an oven or a magnetron
I had a really good stay here so I would rather give a good rating but the bad things just piled up...
I'm no fan of the appartment.
