This is a nice little apartment in an excellent location. It was close to so many of the big attractions of Paris. It is in a charming and lively part of the city, with art galleries, cafe restaurants, shops and scenic places all nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and Caroline was a friendly and helpful host.

Caroline couldn't have been more helpful or friendly in making my stay comfortable in Paris. The flat is in a great location, only a short walk to Norte Dame and the Louvre. There are also an abundance of bars, cafes, and restaurants very close by. I would definitely recommend Caroline's flat as a convenient and cozy place to stay when visiting Paris!

In the beginning, Caroline seemed like a great host. I accidentally booked a day earlier than our arrival and didn't realize it until I received a message from her asking where I was. She accepted my apology and offered to shift our reservation forward one day. The next day, we arrived on time to the flat. I previously messaged her stating we arrived to the city area, then again to tell her we've been waiting in front of the door. No response. A neighbor appeared telling us she was always late; that every two weeks she has people waiting outside the door. The neighbor began calling her, leaving voice messages. I called her multiple times, messaged her, but no response. The neighbor contacted the concierge and left them a message also. My final message told her that if she didn't contact us by a certain time, we would have to make other arrangements. We waited over 2 hours outside, on the street, in the middle of December without hearing a single word from her. We feared she was in an accident and hoped she was okay. We only had 2 and a half days in Paris and we spent that half day freezing, waiting outside on the streets. We were beyond disappointed with this not-so-warm welcome. We began to panic thinking we wouldn't be able to find a place to sleep on such short notice. After searching, we were able to take refuge in a non-refundable hotel. That is when we finally head from her. Her excuse was that she was decorating her Christmas tree and had her phone on silent. We were glad to hear she was okay, but at this point we already had to make other arrangements. At first, she was apologetic, but when I asked for a refund she was anything but fair. I tried filing a report with airbnb, but they put the host in charge of the refund. The reservation total was $360 and, even though I wanted a full refund, I was only able to ask for $267. Thinking we could leave this unfortunate situation behind us, I messaged her asking if she could kindly change it to the full amount. She ended up lowering my refund amount to $130. So not only did we have to pay for a last minute hotel, but we also got charged for her lack of appearance. I frequently use airbnb and have never had an issue. What would you do if you were on the streets of a city where you couldn't speak the language and your host wasn't answering you?

Response from Caroline:
I could legally not do it at all. I decided to reimburse Germain on half the amount under my responsibility (the rest from Airbnb) because I sincerely believe that our wrongs were really shared in this story. I regret that this is not his opinion. I myself waited the day before several hours in the cold waiting for his reaction and yet I really missed his arrival involuntarily the next day.

Caroline's studio is very well located in the heart of st germain. It is on a quiet street that is brimming with lovely art galleries. A relatively short walk to the metro. Our place was clean and presentable. Unfortunately there was a hairy soap bar in the shower. Sometimes Caroline did not reply to my messages, but she was there on time to let us into the place. She is very friendly and welcoming.
