This B&B is located in the heart of the Bastille district. It is in a vintage apartment building and is surrounded by several good restaurants, bakeries, chocolatiers and groceries. The Bastille Metro station is no more than 200m as is an active taxi stand. Bruno is a marvellous host and provides the kind of detailed information about Paris attractions that is invaluable to first time visitors like us. We thoroughly enjoyed the walking tour with Bruno, and doing this early in our visit really got us oriented to the Marais, Bastille and Island districts. You should know that this B&B is on the fifth floor and there is no elevator. That said, This is a great place to stay!
My friend and I spent a perfect 5 nights with Bruno in September. The accommodation is a good size by Parisian standards and comfortable. Although the walk upstairs might challenge some travellers, the warmth of the welcome makes it most definitely worth it.
As previous guests have mentioned, the exceptional feature is the host himself. We visit Paris regularly and don't usually have access to such a fantastic source of local information and such wonderful hospitality. And he's a great cook! Having sampled a delicious dinner I'd recommend that option if staying more than a couple of nights.
The Bastille area is not one we've stayed in before but I'd happily visit again for the good transport, great choice of restaurants and lively atmosphere.
All in all, a memorable trip. Thank you Bruno!
The perfect place to stay, a great location easy to find, walking distance to many attractions and close to the Metro. Comfortable and spacious home style acomodation comes with a welcoming and hospitable host.
Bruno IS the perfect host, friendly and happy to provide tips on sightseeing, galleries and museums over a fab breakfast each day.
My 4 night stay was a great choice after a month of travelling.
The location of this B&B is excellent, from the beginning Bruno made us feel very welcome. He helped us carry our luggage to the apartment, once in the apartment he explained the rules, showed us some maps and gave us directions to various places by metro and walking. The apartment is very cozy and has everything you need for a couple for a few days. The balcony has a very nice view including the Sacred Heart Church. Bruno was very flexible for the breakfast schedule and enjoyed very much his food and his conversations. We decided to go on a guided tour with him and was a great experience to learn from him about Paris that definitely made it more real the tour was thru six passages, Palais Royal, The Luvre, the train station and he included a couple of places I found on YouTube and a movie; 12th Arr a street that every building is a different color and Le Grand Colbert restaurant. It was a great guided tour, the next day he made dinner for us and it was a wonderful dinner. It was more like eating with friends, Bruno and Adalbert made us feel at home starting with great drinks and nice conversation then the food he cooked was delicious the brûlée, chicken, potatoes, the pie for dessert accompanied with wined and great conversation. If I am ever in Paris I would definitely stay there again and I do recommend if you want to have a local experience in Paris.
We had a wonderful three night stay in Bruno's spacious B&B and enjoyed his plentiful breakfasts. Bruno also cooked us a delicious evening meal the night we arrived. Staying in the Bastille area we were able to walk to the Batobus that Bruno had recommended to use. Bruno's advice on how to get around and what to see was invaluable. We really enjoyed our stay.
