Barbara was in contact with us immediately from our booking request and all the way through our last morning, providing us with info on transit and places to visit in Paris. The apartment is small but has all of the necessities; it definitely served our needs as a home base. I would recommend that larger guests avoid this listing though, as the shower is quite tight (~1m square). Overall we had a great experience in Paris and would recommend Barbara and her listing to others!

Barbara was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and made a big effort to make us feel comfortable and to provide information and suggestions for restaurants and activities. When we changed our travel plans and were arriving a day late she went out of her way to make sure she was able to get the key and information to us. The apartment has a PERFECT location, and is very quaint. We had a lovely stay in Paris.

This apartment is in a great location, near the Notre Dame and other historic sites. Barbara was very welcoming and was able to provide useful information about the area and even provided a guidebook for Paris which was very helpful. The apartment itself is fairly basic, with a very small bathroom and big windows looking into the neighbours across the road. Getting up to the apartment involves climbing over 60 stairs which can be tiring with heavy suitcases or at the end of a long day. While we were there the WiFi wasn't working, Barbara was very apologetic and tried to find some alternatives, which eventually worked out ok but could only be used on one device at a time.

We had a very good experience in Barbara's apartment. The location is the definite highlight. Ile St. Louis is at the center of everything in Paris, but was never as crowded or hectic as the rest of the city. The apartment was clean and well stocked, and Barbara was very friendly and helpful.

The host was wonderful, Barbara met me at the apartment and was very friendly. The apartment was well described on the site and she did an excellent job showing me around and how to handle the little details like plants and windows. The neighborhood was quiet and beautiful and exactly what I was looking for on Airbnb. Barbara was really great at making me feel like a valued guest in her place.

Barbara made us feel extremely welcome and gave us many wonderful tips for excellent places to go for (good) coffee and reasonable (but delicious) dinners. The location could not be any better and is convenient to several subway stops, great shopping in Marais, is within walking distance of the tourist areas in the 1st arr. (Louvre, etc.), within eyesight of Notre Dame, and has many great shops less than a block or two away. Try some world famous ice cream at Berthilon's (two blocks away), grab some Baguettes, cheese, wine, or fresh fruit / vegetables (all within a block or two) and sit by the Seine (30 seconds from the door) for a nice lunch. Around the corner is 'Les Fous de L'ile' a cute little restaurant that is both inexpensive and with great food / service. Those looking for a good cup of Joe will want to cross the bridge to 'La Cafeoteque' (you will not be disappointed). Though not an issue for us, I will say that the apartment is on the 4th floor so some might not be able to climb the stairs so easily (especially after walking around town all day!) We had a great time, and Barbara was very attentive to our needs. We've been to Paris before but this stay has been (by far) the most authentic experience we've had yet.
