This charming Parisian studio of 28m2, newly renovated and tastefully decorated, includes a kitchen, a large room with a double bed and a sofa bed, and a bathroom with shower and toilet.
Located on rue de Agent Bailly (which takes its name from Agent Charles Gaston Bailly, of the Paris River Police, who tragically drowned in the Seine in the course of duty) in the heart of the 9th district, the studio is close to both Montmartre and the Opera district. The studio is in easy walking distance from the luxurious Parisian department stores, Galeries Lafayette and Printemps, and the Opera shopping quarter, while at nearby Rue de la Paix and Place Vendôme, you can dream in front of the windows of the world's greatest jewelers.
Traditional shops found in the nearby Rue des Martyrs include bakeries, patisseries, chocolatiers, delicatessens, butchers, caterers, cheese stores, wine merchants, fruit and vegetables vendors, and typically Parisian cafes and restaurants. The area is also host to numerous theaters and museums (I recommend the little-known Museum of Romantic Life where you can enjoy afternoon tea in a delightful walled garden, and the National Gustave Moreau Museum, former home of the artist). The famous Parisian cabarets (The Moulin Rouge, Michou, and Madame Arthur) are also within easy walking distance and add to the colour of the quarter.
The building, located in a former convent which was subsequently converted into a coaching inn in the 19th century, overlooks a large yard with trees and flowers in the heart of old Paris.
The main door is fitted with a security code.
The metro station closest to the apartment (Notre-Dame de Lorette) is located within 3 minutes walk, and all the sights of the city can be reached on foot.
The Gare du Nord (from where Eurostar departs and arrives, amongst many other services) and the Gare Saint Lazarre are both 10/15 minutes walk.
Gare de l'Est Station is 10 minutes by taxi (20 minutes on foot).
Montparnasse train station is directly accessible by metro from Notre dame De Lorette without any changes (20/25 min.)
Gare de Lyon is 25 minutes by metro.
The airport Charles de Gaulle is 45 minutes by taxi (45/80 euros, depending on time and traffic) and 1 hour by train (the Gare du Nord, RER B, 9.10 euros / person).
Orly airport is 45 minutes by taxi (45/80 euros) and 1h15 by train.
You can also rent bikes (Velib) in the street for a few euros per day.
A Secured parking is located nearby (5 min walk) Parking Saint Georges, 20 rue Clauzel (charges apply).
The keys will be handed over on the spot at the apartment upon arrival.
Sheets and towels are provided.
The deposit (200 euros) is refunded on the day of departure.
I propose another apartment to rent, which accommodates 2 to 5 people, located on rue des Martyrs ("Beautiful apartment in the heart of Paris Haussman, 2-5 persons").

Upon visiting Charles’ apartment I was taken by how central and serene the flat was. Central to the touristic areas of the north I was happy to find a calm neighborhood that discreetly shows a glimpse of Parisian life. The building has a large courtyard with many bikes and trees connecting the different sections. The apartment itself has a view on a calm street and is comfortably setup. A small kitchen, large bed, clean and pretty bathroom make this charming little place a nice flat to curl up in especially when facing the moody Parisian weather. Charles and his wife Amelia have filled the bookshelf with some interesting finds on art and literature, worth a look if curiosity is one of your qualities. A nespresso machine lies on a shelf in the kitchen perfect for a quick coffee before going to the nearby rue des Martyrs, a street known for its delightful shops and restaurants. I would recommend this apartment especially if you like to get to know a neighborhood that never lacks charm.

Die Wohnung war super sauber, alles sehr schön, gemütlich und modern eingerichtet. Flat Screen, WiFi, DVD-Player, Mikrowelle, und, und, und, alles im Preis inbegriffen. Die Wohnung ist zentral aber trotzdem ruhig gelegen. In 5 Minuten ist man zu Fuß bei der Metro von wo aus alles sehr schnell erreichbar war. Wir würden jederzeit wieder dorthin gehen falls wir nochmal nach Paris kommen.

I did not get the chance to meet Charles except for our brief talk on the phone. His wife Amelia received me and was very charming and welcoming. We spoke a bit and when it was time to take the pictures she left me to it. Amelia was very nice and welcoming I would definitely stay in one of their apartments if I had the chance. ///This review was written by an official Member of the 9flats Team ///
