Welcome to a real ‘home from home’ in the heart of Paris in an authentic Haussmann Paris apartment with a large balcony and sunny street and skyline views. Altogether in a quaint, desirable typically Parisian neighbourhood that is within walking distance to the Marais, the Canal Saint Martin, Bastille, the famous Boulevard Richard Lenoir Markets and more. Prime and practical positioning to reach all of Paris and in an apartment this is bright, spacious, harmonious equipped with all you need for a comfortable private apartment stay with capacity for up to 5 guests over 2 bedrooms, with a kitchen/diner and private bathroom - and parents can find a spare baby bed if need.
Our hospitable and attentive host Pascal has been offering his apartment to travellers for over 10 years and is of Parisian origin. He offers it as a 'B&B Apartment' meaning this is a private self contained home for guest privacy and independence, yet he delivers breakfasts and remains next door and on hand to assist anytime, for cleaning, changing sheets, and to chat anytime you wish. Pascal welcomes you with the simplicity, warmth and attention that keeps you falling in love with Paris. He is a wealth of Paris knowledge and takes great care in presenting his Paris B&B apartment with wonder and cleanliness.
This is a very pleasant 50m² Haussmann apartment (parquet floor, mouldings, fireplace) with two communicating bedrooms, a kitchen diner, bathroom and exceptionally a large flowered balcony. Located on the fifth floor without a lift, our carefully furnished and decorated apartment is very light and spacious with a view over Paris rooftops.Breakfast is included though not served; the ingredients are left for guests in their fully equipped kitchen and fridge to prepare each morning at their leisure. Staying at Pascals Paris B&B is just like living in your own home and in the apartment next door is your host's home, so whilst enjoying your own space in this B&B private Apartment - an ideal way to enjoy the fantastic city in complete freedom - guests still benefit from a local Parisian host offering tips and advice about the city of lights.
The apartment is fully equipped with a flat screen TV and DVD player. A large choice of DVD’s (French and other language films) is at your disposal. - Internet: wifi connexion gives you broadband internet access. - Books, guides, magazines and maps - in different languages. - Baby bed, ironing board and iron.
The Movida Room: Enjoy a happy display of bright colours that lighten this room thanks to a very bold decor and design approach with a touch of psychedelic flavour to recall the sensual and slightly kitsch ambiance of the films of Pedro Almodovar. But it’s only an unpretentious nod and a wink! There are old fashioned mouldings, parquet floor and fireplace and the overall effect is very appealing, unique and quaintly comforting and at the same time boldly empowering.
There are two single beds in this bedroom (with new bedding), which can be pushed together in this ‘Movida’ room (bedroom 1) where you’ll sleep well into the morning. But if you can’t get to sleep enjoy TV or a DVD with the small selection of movies available to you.
This first bedroom can be converted into a lounge when the apartment is occupied by just 1 or 2 people who would then sleep in bedroom 2 - the 'Africana' room that is next door. This room leads onto the balcony where you can lounge or enjoy breakfast during fine weather.
The Africana Room: Thank to your hosts travels to various parts of the world there are some wonderful memories saved in this room that is testimony to the emotions felt upon contact with marvelous natives - children, women, men and places - in far away worldly places.
You’ll find a warm and comfortable atmosphere by the fireplace. The room has a large bed 140x190 (new bedding). This bedroom leads onto the balcony where you can lounge or enjoy breakfast during fine weather and the great view.
The Kitchen: Pascal wanted this to be functional and aesthetic and so you’ll find carefully chosen new equipment. Kitchen equipment: Fridge freezer, oven and ceramic hob, micro-wave oven, toaster, coffee maker, juicer. A complete set of crockery, glassware, cutlery, pots and pans as well as some basic condiments (salt, pepper, oil, vinegar etc.). Like the two bedrooms the kitchen also leads onto the balcony.
The Bathroom: The simply but thoughtfully decorated bathroom is spacious with a bath and shower, stained glass window that opens onto the sunny balcony. Linen and bathroom products are provided for guests use. There is a hairdryer available.Services Include:
- Breakfast provided on a do-it-yourself basis. Left in the kitchen for you is tea, coffee, drinking chocolate, milk, orange juice, bread, brioche, butter, "home-made” jam, cereals and yoghurts.

An authenitc and most enjoyable part of the Paris apartment experience.
