Close to metro, shops, bakeries etc. The place itself is clean and well equipped. Alysa is a great host, ready with all the information needed to enjoy our stay in Paris. And she's always available to answer my queries. Recommended!

Alysa is among the best hosts we met during our month-long trip in Europe. She is thoughtful, attentive and informative far beyond our imaginations. We left the place in a mess by accidents. But she's so forgiving and resourceful that helps us reached a happy settlement. The place is well located and even well furnished/equipped. Highly Recommended.

Alysa was very helpful and informative prior to our arrival, and communication was great throughout. The place was enough for up to four people, and in a quiet neighborhood. The metro stop is close and the city is easily reachable in 15 to 20 minutes. Our stay was great and I would recommend staying here.

If you are ever in Paris, staying with Alysa will only enhance your trip! She was an excellent host and our family of 4 adults were very comfortable in the apartment. The view had a very quintessential Parisian feel with its bakeries and butchery which just added to the experience :)

Got this airbnb for my parents. They enjoyed their stay, but had some difficulties: the restaurant next door does not close until very late, so it seemed to always smell like cigarettes; the toilet seemed to have some problems, as well as the wifi being spotty. The location is about 25 min from most tourist attractions, but nearby a tram station and about 8 min from a metro station. My parents said they enjoyed their stay, overall.

Response from Nathalie & Alysa:
Hi Sohee, we're glad your parents enjoyed their stay, and apologize for the toilet's water needing to be cut after the tank is full - as was explained to you, this is an unexpected problem that will be fixed asap. The building had a wifi issue one evening during your stay. It has been repaired. If you were having trouble at the time, you could have contacted me for information. I'm also surprised about the smoke - we've never had anyone else complain about that. I'm wondering if it was just bad luck and some guests downstairs who happened to be heavy smokers. The Metro station is normally about 5 minutes from the apartment, as other guests have commented. Perhaps you and your parents went to another station instead?

We stayed in Alysa's apartment for 5 days. We are a family of 4 including couple with 2 kids aged 8 and 1. We had an overall great stay at the apartment. Alysa was very proactive with the communication before the trip. She is a very warm person and explained all details about the apartment and offered us very helpful suggestions during the checkin. The apartment is reasonably located just 100 metres from the Severin tram stop and about 300-400 metres from the Ports de Bagnolet metro stop (metro line #3). The tram also goes to Porte de Vincennes (metro line #1 -- goes to Paris central; Louvre, Arc de Troimphe) and I believe also a station on the metro line #2. Between these three metro lines, you will find it convenient to get to anywhere in Paris. In general, in Paris, the metro and RER trains get you everywhere! The apartment is quite small, but we already knew that at the time of booking. As a family of 4, we did have trouble managing space; so I think this apartment is best suited for a couple or a couple with 1 child. As other guests have mentioned, the lift is really really small. Only 2 people or 1 person + luggage can go in the lift at any time. Many apartments in Paris do not have a lift; we were really thankful that at least there's a lift even if it's cramped. Just a couple doors away from the apartment is a laundry shop, cafe, basic grocery shop and a bakery -- so you have all necessities taken care of. Overall a great base for us in Paris. Would definitely recommend Alysa's apartment for 2-3 people travelling to Paris.

Bonjour! I'm Alysa, an American who's called Paris home for more than a decade. I've traveled a lot, especially in Europe and the US, but the City of Light is my favorite place in the world, and I love welcoming people here.

I'm a writer, travel planner, and cat person, among other things. Besides my family, what I love most in the world are: books, travel, museums, history, hypocritically critiquing celebrity fashion, and cookies.

Like my friend and neighbor Nathalie, I want you to feel welcome, comfortable, and even inspired in our charming studio. And as someone passionate about Paris, I'm always ready with tips on what to see (from the "musts" to the offbeat), great local places to eat and shop, and more.

Bonjour! Je suis Alysa, une américaine qui vit à Paris depuis une bonne dizaine d’années. J’ai beaucoup voyagé, surtout en Europe et aux Etats-Unis, mais la Ville Lumière est mon endroit préféré au monde.

Je suis écrivain, organisatrice de voyages, et fan de chats entre autres choses. En plus de ma famille et de ma ville, j’aime les livres, les voyages, les musées, l’histoire, faire des critiques hypocrites sur la mode « people » et les biscuits.

Comme ma copine et voisine Nathalie, je voudrais que vous vous sentiez chez vous, à l’aise, cosy, et même inspiré(e) dans notre charmant studio. En tant que passionnée de Paris, je serai toujours là si vous le souhaitez pour vous donner des suggestions sur quoi faire ou voir (que cela soit des « musts » ou des choses insolites), des supers restos ou magasins du quartier, etc.
