Host and Breakfast:
We stayed here for our first stop on our month-long honeymoon. Bruno was an amazing host. The apartment was impeccable. The food (breakfast) was more than enough and each breakfast was like a little piece of Paris. Bruno is the nicest Parisian who is a true Frenchman. And he knows how to cook! (and prides himself in this fact). My wife has dairy allergies, but this didn't stop Bruno from making some of the best breakfasts we had our whole trip while overseas. We can't say enough good about Bruno. He gave us some flowers that his mother grew in the southwest part of France. He also walked us all the way to the best place (no lines) to get our museum passes as well as the train to get on to get to Versailles (there was a station closed and we would have gotten lost). He even walked us to where our church was located in Paris. When we arrived he offered us wine because we were on our honeymoon (we don't drink, but it was nice either way). He did everything to help make this experience the perfect first stop on our honeymoon.
The location was amazing because you are less than a block away from the Bastille Metro station from which you can get to any place in Paris. Not to mention you have a perfect view of Sacre Coeur to the north and Le Bastille (monument) to the southwest. It's a bit of a hike up the 5 floors, but it is worth it for the view.
It was small for American standards, but that wasn't a bad thing. Bruno was an engineer his whole life and then he quit to start this B&B. He has perfectly engineered every inch of this flat. We were amazed at the detail. We really came to like Bruno through his attention to detail. There is even a sensor to turn on the light for when you walk in the door. It really is a beautiful place. It doesn't have AC and we were there in July. It didn't get too hot, but we had to open the windows a bit at night. I bet when it is cooler it would be perfect. The bed was way comfy. All the linens were very clean and we always had towels.
We loved our time at Bruno's and wish we could go back soon.
