Charming flat, 5 people, in the Montmartre area
This large flat is located in the Montmartre area, near rue Lepic (famous for Amélie Poulain). It is located at 100 from the Sacré Coeur.
There are many shops and stores for food around the flat and the open air market located rue Lepic, and rue d …
1A Lage, aber da hört es auch schon auf.
Schmutzige Laken, schmutzige Decken, TV funktionierte nicht.
Warnes Wasser gab es erst am zweiten Tag.
Ausstattung eher mäßig. Bis auf das franz. Bett waren die anderen Klapp-
Couches eine echte Zumutung. Völlig durchgelegen und schmutzig.
Le séjour à l'appartement était marqué par de choses suivantes::
- On avait reservé et payé un lit bébé, mais il n'en avait pas!
- Deux de ampoules étaient grillés
- L'equipment du cuisine est plus qu'on ne peut en supporter: la vaisselle est pour la plupart cassé, c'est dangereux de l'utiliser,
il n'y a que une verre de vin, pas un passoire pour laver des legumes, pas de éplucheur, etc.
- Le crépi s'enlève de la mur en deux chambres!
- La télevision ne peut pas utiliser car il manquait des batteries dans la télecommande et le récepteur ne marchait pas.
The flat is very central to the Montmatre area and only five minutes walk from Abbess station. We went as a family group of five adults and it was ample for our needs. You do need to get along as there is limited privacy with the sleeping arrangements! The shower was warm and there was no shortage of hot water
If you like practising your French in the local shops and bars, you will find plenty of opportunities to do so. If you like french cheeses and charcuterie, the Rue Lepic is five minutes walk away and well worth a visit. The local baker's shop is at the corner of the street and the Bar Helice is just a few doors away.
There are plenty of places to eat and you will get a warm welcome.
Finally, when you first arrive, you may find the lock on the main door to the flat a bit stiff. You have to be brutal and turn the key anticlockwise. It will eventually move! Don't be discouraged.
Well described when we booked - clean, well heated in winter, great location within Montmartre - very easy reach of 3 metro stops (Abbesses, Anvers & Pigalle - Lines 12 and 2), cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, funiculaire, Sacre Coeur, shops etc. Nice friendly little bar in same street just a few doors away and without that many tourists.
E-mail directions and dealings with owner fine and helpful - although 1 thing that would be useful to know is directions from Anvers metro for when you first arrive - about same distance as Abbesses from apartment but Abbesses has more steps to climb than any metro station we have used in Paris so it is a long way to take suitcases if the lift isn't working! Just head up the hill 30/40 metres out of the metro and you come to rue d'Orsel and it is less than 2 blocks up gentle hill from there. We used both metros regularly as its the easiest way to get around Paris.
We stayed as a family with 2 kids and its in a good area for that, but also still only a few minutes from Moulin Rouge etc.
Only a couple of minor things to note on the downside if you want to stay here - the single futon isn't the world's most comfortable, and the hot water is very hot if you have quite young kids to look after.
Only tried 2 local restaurants, both excellent for food and hospitality - French restaurant on the right on the next block of rue d'Orsel towards Anvers metro, and a Cambodian / Chinese restaurant on the left going down the hill on rue des Martyrs.
Finally, our friends stayed in a good clean 2* hotel at the same time and spent nearly double the amount for much less space.
Good apartments like this are a winner for city breaks.

Rue Copernic by onefinestay
About the home:
There’s a serenity to Rue Copernic, a pellucid calm that will ease weary limbs. Its windows overlook a rooftop reservoir, whose still waters mirror the ever-changing sky. While inside the walls are hung with limpid landscapes and the decor is accented with oceanic blue – from the deep hues of the comfy sofa to the twinkling glass vases resting atop the chic glass dining table. If you wish for some quiet contemplation, you’re not far from the leafy glades of the Bois de Boulogne, or simply return home and gaze upon the peaceful oriental curios.
Your multilingual hostess works as a tourist guide and has travelled the wide world. She’s especially fond of London and Rome, but considers Paris her favourite place of all, so much so that she’s an official guide to the city.
The sitting room is subtly modern, with smart, contemporary furniture sitting atop floorboards the colour of café au lait. Grass green and white give the bathroom the tropical sweetness of a lagoon, while the bedroom is particularly spacious, neat wicker furnishings and minimal white wardrobes sending ripples from the Orient. And after a day treading the busy waters of Champs-Élysées, you’ve rich creamy walls and a sumptuous double bed where you can set sail to dreamland.
About the Owner:
onefinestay gives you the chance to stay in someone's place while they're out of town. You get to live their life for a few days and nights.
Every home is properly cleaned before and after you stay, beds made (we can even do hospital corners) and bathrooms kitted out with luxury toiletries. There's a maid service if you want it, as well as other hotel-style amenities.
Once we've helped you settle in, we're just a call away, 24/7. If it's something we can't solve over the phone, we'll pop over to lend a hand.
And because nobody wants to be a tourist, our homes come with use of an iPhone loaded with personal and unique recommendations from the people who live in them -- places to eat, things to do and adventures to go on.
Booking a stay is as easy as booking a hotel room, with online payment and confirmation. You get the same attention to detail and personal service too.
