Be warned, don’t stay here! Very disappointing! Although we have stayed here before, the quality of this apartment has deteriorated.
We encountered the noisy building work on our arrival at 14.45. The sofa-bed gradually became unbearable to sleep on. We noticed it had a dip in the middle, which led to sleepless nights throughout the six nights we booked to stay here.
We mentioned this to Herve, he said we were the first to inform him of this. However, after reading more recent reviews on his apartment on booking.com we discovered others have commented. We obviously wished we had read these reviews before booking this time around!
Herve's response to the bed was to ask us ‘What can I do?’ Our response was, 'buy a new bed'. He replied, 'It is impossible to buy a bed in Paris'.
A strong smell of damp is also noticeable each time you enter. Each evening we were forced to open the door to the balcony to allow air through the room, however this also made the room very cold.
We informed Herve and asked if we could be given an extra duvet. He replied that he might have one in his basement - the duvet never arrived.
The duvet that was supplied felt old and worn-out, almost as though it had not been washed for sometime. As there were no buttons on the duvet cover, the duvet was permanently exposed.
We found the industrial building work taking place next door mind numbing. The noise started at 08.00 to approximately 15.30. Herve could have warned us about this during the booking process. His response was we should have been able to rest and sleep during the weekend. We found his comment highly offensive. It truly ruined our holiday.
By the end of the stay, we were totally exhausted and angry that we were bluffed into staying in a space that has so many issues. I only wish Herve was as honest as we are with this review.
All in all we found his attitude to be arrogant. I strongly suggest that you seek alternative accommodation of which there are many in Paris.
On a positive note Ourcq is a fantastic place to be, and only four stops from Gare du Nord.
I made this reservation for my sister. She stayed there with her boyfriend. Everything was just perfect. The apartment was clean and very nice, with anything you could need.
Returning to Herve's most charming studio made our second stay in this fantastic city so homely. As we knew what to expect from this super clean, well equipped, safe apartment, we could get on with exploring Paris with ease.
Ourcq will serve as your local metro station and is only four stops away from Gare du Nord on Line 5. The area has the usual mix of lovely bakers, butchers and supermarkets. There is even a fantastic park called Parc des Buttes Chaumount a five minute walk away.
We highly recommend this cute place, and Herve is also a really lovely welcoming guy.
It was a really nice time in Herve's apartment. Everything looks the same way as you can see in the pictures: the sleeping-coach is really comfortable and the little balcony is nice for having breakfast or dinner. The kitchen is useful and allows you to prepare little meals without problems. The bathroom is big enough and clean, as the rest of the appartment.
My girlfriend and me like it really much so I can only recommend this appartment for everyone. It is well situated (just 5 min. to the metro station Ourcq) and there is a beautiful park which you can reach by walking 2 mins.
Herve is a really kind and nice man and took the time to explain us everything and help us with any kind of questions.
Great location, great facilities, and great host. There are a big mart, some supermarkets and boulangeries close to this studio. It's a 5 minute walk to all of them. Especially, one of the supermarkets opens until 10 pm. It was very useful because so many stores in Paris usually close too early for tourists who have no enough time to go to mart in the daytime. The studio was so clean and neat, especially the bathroom. The host, Herve is so kind and tries to help the guests. I really thank him so much. I want to stay in this studio if I go Paris again.
Great apartment, very modern and clean. I was under the impression that there was a dryer in addition to the washer, but I must have been delusional because no one in Europe has a dryer, ha! The place comes with pretty much everything you need for an apartment, includes a full kitchen with stove and convention/microwave oven, which I never learned how to use. Herve was ill and had a friend meet with us instead, communications were delayed but I think it was due to him not feeling well. We had a great stay, and the balcony is perfect for breakfast.
We are a couple in our 60s from the US. We were very pleased with our four nights in the apartment. It was very clean and well equipped. Herve met us and explained everything in great detail.
There are a couple of things which we didn't expect, possibly because we didn't read the Wimdu information closely enough:
1) In addition to your rental charge, you need to have 300 Euros in cash as a deposit against damage to the apartment. We didn't realize that, and Herve was kind enough to wait until the next day for his deposit, as we had to go to a cash machine.
2) This apartment is a studio, i.e., no bedroom. The couch is very clever and makes into an extremely comfortable bed. We didn't realize there wasn't a bedroom, but it proved to be no problem.
I have requirements for Internet access when I travel. I could connect to the Internet with my laptop in this apartment, but my Android phone could not. This is apparently a known issue with Android and some older Wifi routers. Internet speed is adequate, but not very fast.
Regarding the neighborhood, we liked it because it is off the normal tourist areas, and we felt we were living in more of the "real Paris." Metro stations are within easy walking distance, but we also ignored them at times and walked extensively around this part of the city.
Overall, highly recommended. We would use it again if we go to Paris.
A fantastic apartment with everything you need for a enjoyable stay. We were surprised by the size of the bathroom and also the sofa bed is very comfy. The area which the apartment is in is very nice and there are a few metro stations near by as well as a fantastic bakery and market. The building seems nice enough and is very secure.
Herve is very accommodating to arrival and departure times which was great as we were using the Eurostar and had obscure departure times
If i visit Paris again i will certainly try to book this property first 1
Herve was outstanding, everything was just great. The kitchen facility was most helpful as was his starter kit to get us rolling. The hall light by the elevator took a while to find in the dark but after that no issues. Nice to have a T.V. radio and kitchen.
This cosy, clean and extremely stylish studio was perfect in every way for my husband and I. Herve has truly thought hard about what weary travellers need for their stay in Paris and provides it in this incredibly down-to-earth part of the city.
We are really looking forward to going back! Herve is also a really lovely guy - we got our deposit back in full as we were extra careful not to damage anything.
