Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Great apartment, Great Location, Great Value
We spent a week at the Boulangerie Room in July. We were greeted by a friendly colleague of the owner within minutes of arriving at the apartment from the airport. She gave us an informative overview of the studio and the neighbourhood and we were off to enjoy all that Paris has to offer. The studio is small by North american standards but we have stayed in hotel rooms in Paris that were much smaller. The studio was exactly as described and represented in photos. Everything you need is in the apartment, a small refrigerator, cooking utensils, a coffee maker and a washer. The bed was very comfortable. We shopped in the neighbourhood for food and wine, a Monoprix is nearby as well as many other shops. We enjoyed the local restaurants and markets. The proximity to the Metro is wonderful. We traveled the Metro without any difficulties. We were there during the arrival of the Tour de France which was an amazing event in itself. The apartment is close to the Rue de Commerce, a great street for shopping. There was a market on Sunday near the La Motte Picquet metro station that had amazing food, fresh fish, and wonderful baked goods. After long days of taking in the sights and shopping, the Boulangerie Room was a wonderful place to come home to each day. We walked to the Eiffel Tower several times and enjoyed a picnic in a grassy area across the river while the sun set, a memorable experience for sure. Our stay at the Boulangerie Room was great, we would certainly recommend it to anyone looking to enjoy an authentic Parisian experience. We cannot wait until our next visit to the Boulangerie Room, Thanks for everything.

Thank you for your sweet review :-) It was a pleasure hosting you ! Take care. Chris
Unique, clean, safe and comfortable accomodation.
The Boulangerie Room was a fantastic place to stay. We were visiting Paris for the first time to attend a friends wedding. After lots of prompt emails Christophe met us at the property, he showed us around the apartement which was just as it looked online (if not better). He then gave us a quick tour of the local area and recommended some shops and restaurants.
We found the suite to be clean, safe and comfortable, just what we needed for our stay. The nespresso machine was a real bonus and the shower was warm and powerful. We would definately stay at this fun, quirky apartement again!

Dear Natalie & Collin, it was a real pleasure hosting you. You are respectuous and warm people ! Take care. Chris
Ann Arbor, MI
Boulangerie room rocks!
We had issues arriving but Christophe was accommodating in every way and even stayed up late to assist with our arrival. This place is small but we required little space and it had everything we needed. The location is great, close to anything you might require and a great starting point for day adventures. Bike rentals, Metro, bakeries, butcher shops, cheese shops, produce, chocolate shops, shopping, cafe's, all within a 2 blocks of the apartment. Apartment is clean and cute and the price was a steal. We would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to everyone. We also must advise to take a Fat Tire bike tour the minute you arrive, helps to give you some history and a sense of your way around.

Fabulous Stay at Lafayette apartment
Fabulous Stay at Lafayette apartment
We had a fabulous stay at the Lafayette apartment. The apartment was nicely decorated & well presented. It was very quiet & secure in a lovely old building. The location is excellent for exploring Paris. We were able to walk to most places & the metro/ train station was just next door. We bought all of our provisions locally & although we only stayed for 4 nights we really got a feel for the city. Christophe was extremely helpful during the booking process & throughout our stay. We would definitely stay at one of Christophe's apartments again.
Thank you Christophe for a wonderful stay.
Great place to stay with a wonderful owner.
Chris and his young son Victor met us and showed us around the apartment and explained how every thing worked. He then took the time to and walked us around the neighborhood and made recommendations for dining and which shops offered the best produce, wine and cheese. Chris accommodated our request for an early check in which was wonderful after flying for 16 hours and arriving early in the morning. The apartment was exactly as advertised, clean, comfortable, charming and quiet during the evening. It is located near 2 metro stops and a large supermarket. If you want the Real Parisian experience this is the neighborhood for it. Fun, Safe and located close to all the major sights either by walking or metro. Chris was excellent to work with, quick to respond to emails and very accommodating. What a super person. I would highly recommend this property to my friends and family when they are in Paris
Excellent I am a fan
Great location, great host, great value, ideal for a unique romantic getaway in Paris !!!
Unique experience in Paris
The best thing I can say about the Boulangerie Room is that I would rent it again and again !
I have rented several apartments in Paris and I feel this has been the best experience I have had. We loved the apartment location and overall its unique spirit and history. Thanks a lot Chris for all your help
The only thing I can say about the Boulangerie Room is that I loved it and I would rent it again for sure! I have been on several hotels qnd apartments across Europe and this old Bakery was the best experience I have had. We loved the apartment location and loved the area.
Great apartment with all amenities you can need. Chris always responded to emails promptly and he met me in person at check in, he speaks a great english and was so helpful. The apartment is so romantic and unique and in a great location. I recommend it to anyone who wants to have a unique stay in Paris..
Great unit, clean and well set out, great location 1 min walk to the metro, supermarket and post office. Plus a number of great Boulangaries. Christophe was great and everything went smoothly. Was a great 5 days in Paris!

Charming studio located in very convenient,quiet, residential ne
Christophe met us at the Metro stop and showed us around the neighborhood, pointing out the "Best" food shops, Atm's and restaurants. We came for New Years, so the location was great. We could walk to the Eiffel tower. I really like working directly with the owner. The properties are better maintained and you get that personal touch.
Amy & Senica
Cozy and convenient
The owner, Christophe, was very helpful and, as he was out of town when we arrived the week of Christmas, his good friend met us and pointed out a few key spots in the area. We were given the keys and all relevant information that we might need during our stay (e.g., how to work the heater, the stove, etc.). The apartment is located near the metro and quiet during the evening. Like a hotel, a hair dryer and towels are provided; however, there are no wash rags (to be expected outside of the U.S. so we brought our own). We liked that there was a kitchenette as it helped keep the cost of meals down and was very convenient when we were tired after a long day of sight seeing. The kitchenette was especially nice as many hotels do not allow you to take food in your room. We had a very nice stay and would definitely rent from Christophe in the future!

Perfect Parisian Pied-a-terre!
I did a lot of research before finding this place. My main priority was cleanliness followed by location (without spending a fortune). This apartment was very clean, exactly as appears in the photos, and is located in the residential 15th with lots of good restaurants and shops. Christophe has put a lot of work into making sure guests enjoy this place and he was a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend it.
Response from Christophe, Angelique and Baby Victor - 12/03/2011
Merci Matt !! I hope to see you again in Paris :-)
Ideal Paris holiday rental for a couple
We stayed a week following a hectic tour of France. The location about 200 meter from a shopping / cafe area and metro station is excellent. On arrival we were met by the owners representative and shown around and she provided answers to our many questions about the area and the flat.
The flat itself is basic but comfortable with all the facilities needed, self catering, washer dryer, TV and free wi-fi.
We will stay again next time in Paris, and may that be really soon!!

Wonderful stay in Paris
We loved the Boulangerie Room and this neighborhood in Paris. Chris met us and was very gracious. He showed us the apartment and walked us around the neighborhood. The apartment is very charming and comfortable. The neighborhood had everything you needed just steps away. Several bakeries, cafes, sidewalk markets, pharmacies, and coffee shops. 2 metro stations were very close and easy to use. We walked to and from the Eiffel tower several times, even at midnight and felt very safe. We miss it already!
Great location, friendly owner, good value
We loved this place. Chris met us with a very warm welcome and showed us around the neighbourhood, his favourite bakery, supermarkets, cafes etc. It was close to two Metro stops, so getting around was cheap and so easy. We also were close enough to walk to many places.
It was so nice to be able to use a washing machine instead of washing our things in tiny sinks and to have the option of being able to cook if desired, and to have a fridge available. Being away from from the busy tourist accommodation areas, but still close to everything, was great and we experienced a lovely side of Paris that perhaps we would not have seen had we stayed elsewhere.

Merci Kelie and thank you for your nice review ! I would love to welcome you or your son again :-)
Vancouver, BC Canada
Travelled through Europe, starting in Paris, with my two granddaughters, aged 10 & 12, and we loved this apartment - the amenities, the location, Christophe, and the entire experience. The neighbourhood was great, convenient (and two metro stops within minutes of each other, if we wanted).
The best of Paris
The Boulangerie Room is very well situated and is one of the most enjoyable experiences we have had in Paris. It has a unique style and design and you will find in the area everything that you need for an unforgettable experience. You will live here like a real Parisian ! Just around the corner from the apartment is a plentiful supply of bars and bistros/restaurants to suit all tastes. Chris was a great host! Our stay was just perfect
Happily refunded traveller
Christophe is a real and honest gentleman you can trust
I arranged to take my wife to Paris for her birthday but then the project I was working on was delayed. Christophe went beyond the bounds to asist me to organise another date. When that was not possible he showd what a completely honest and ethical person he is in arranging a full refund. His responsiveness to emails, his clear answers, flexibility, and deposit management was second to none.
Response from Christophe, Angelique and Baby Victor - 06/11/2011
Thank you for your nice comment. Hope to see you for your next trip to Paris :-) Chris
Quirky, comfortable and authentic living in Paris
The Boulangerie room is spare but comfortable and superbly equipped for a vacation stay. As others have noted, though it's away from the areas well-known by tourists, here you have the pleasure of living in a "real" Parisian neighborhood replete with shops, cafes, (real) bakeries, markets and so on. The idea of renovating a bakery into a studio apartment is so clever and offers a very unique experience.
Christophe met us at the flat and took the time to orient us to our new home and stroll the neighborhood. His suggestions were right on and we greatly appreciated the attention he gave us as we settled in.
We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to others.
Great hosts, great studio
Christophe and angelique are the most helpful and welcoming couple I have ever met. The boulangerie room is perfectly located, has a charming design, comfortaable bed and all you need to enjoy your vacation. the area is full of restaurants and shops. I strongly recommend to stay at the boulangerie room with Christophe and angelique.
Unique in Paris!!!
Top quality studio and location. can walk to Eiffel tower. Decor unique. 2 minutes from local Parisian life with fresh top quality including cafe, gourmet restaurants, lifestyle. highly recommend this apartment. it is our home away ! Thank you Chris :-)
Great location, fantastic apartment
We had the pleasure of staying at the Boulangerie Room for a week. Christophe and angelique were charming and gracious hosts. We received a warm and friendly welcome and were taken on a quick tour of the neighbourhood, The apartment was clean, the bed was comfortable and had a lot of character.
The location was fantastic and gives you the opportunity for a more local Parisian experience. We were a 1 minute walk from 2 metro stations, cafes, bistros, supermarkets, butcher and an amazing Boulangerie (try the almond croissants).
We could not have been happier. Christophe was very easy to communicate with, professional, honest and courteous. I would not hesitate to recommend the Boulangerie Room!!

Christmas in Paris
Had a great time in Paris and our stay in the the apartment was comfortable. The apartment was close to everything shops and restaurants. The train was up the street we were able to get around with ease. We stayed for 2 weeks and we had no problems at all. Thanks again Christophe for your help.
A delectable studio apartment!
We stayed in the Boulangerie for a week in late February and loved it. The studio apartment is absolutely charming - the pictures don't lie!
We found the apartment to be really comfortable, lovely bed (vouched for by my 6' 8" companion) and spotlessly clean. It was great to have to have a few home amenities like a washing machine, and kettle etc when you are away from home for more than a couple of days. It was also good to have access to the internet and to sky news!
While the apartment is a bit away from the well known sights - it served by a really close metro station and is very safe and secure. We really liked visiting the local shops and restaurants nearby and found the area very authentic. All in all - I can't recommend the boulangerie rooms highly enough!
San Diego, California
absolutely wonderful, highest compliments and recommendation for
I cannot say enough about how wonderful this place is. There's a reason everyone gives this place fives stars. The owner Christophe is one of the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever met. I would stay here just because of him. Moreover, the place in is a great location right off the metro. The Monoprix, boulangerie, cheese, wine, and local market shops are right around the corner. It's spacious, clean, prepared with cooking utensils, coffee, and fresh clean towels. The bed is large and amazingly comfortable. You would pay five or six times for what you get here at a hotel. We are staying in another one of Christophe's places for a week and it is equally as amazing. My highest recommendations to this apartment and any other of Christophe's places. We dream of having a place like this for ourselves one day. Thank you so much Christophe for all of you hospitality.
We enjoyed staying at the Boulangerie Room, with its cozy accommodations and home like atmosphere.
The accommodation itself is well-appointed and delightfully unique. It retains its 'bakery
character' and was quite a pleasure to 'come home to'.
Great Parisian Experience
This studio is newly remodeled, beautifully decorated with modern furniture and appliances. Christophe & Angelique are extremely honest, dependable, reliable, and personable.
I recommend this place to everyone :-)
Beautifully decorated, good location, friendly owners :-)
This is a lovely place to stay. We were made very welcome and had a lovely and very enjoyable holiday. A lucky find and we would like to stay at the Bakery again.

A quiet apt.and yet within step to all the all amenities. Here.
Diane and I are so pleased we stayed at the Bakery on our recent visit to Paris.
We just walked around the corner, and there were many shops, not many tourists, good clasical streets with neat stores, bakeries, chocolate shops , fruits and vegetables, grocery store, restaurants, a crepe shop to die for,etc.
Want to go anywhere in the City, without any trouble?...so close to the Metro stops.
All in all, no negatives...only positives. What a neat apartment. When we played the card game Gin on the table under the open window of the street door, people would look in and ask questions about the apartment...some with a sense of humor who asked for bread of one sort or another. It was fun, and we explained it was an apartment that was rentable
We gave the name to a couple people who were staying in the Latin Quarter. I hope they become future clients of yours.

An exceptional slice of authentic Paris life
Wow. What can I say! This charming little room was a delight from start to finish, our only regret was that we could not stay longer. Christophe was the perfect host, from showing us the ins & outs of the room to graciously providing us with a tour of the neighborhood and its history and his favorite spots(which really helped direct us during our brief stay in the area).
Sadly, we are having technical problems with this website regarding adding the star ratings above, so we will include them in full below:
We strongly recommend christophe's creperie suggestion, 'the chili dog' where you can get a delicious crepe or a scrumptious panini (with a drink for only 4€!).
As well, do come prepared to rent the bikes around the corner-by far, the best and most magical way to see Paris at night. There was nothing more wonderful than riding our bikes from the boulangerie room to the Eiffel tower and eating macarons in the moonlight.
It was such a romantic trip !
It was such a romantic trip ! My wife and I had a wonderful time there.

This place is incredibly original , design and confortable, Christophe and his family are real artists and one of the best hosts I have met, perfect location and excellent shops nearby.

Honeymoon in Paris
My husband and I stayed here while on our honeymoon and had a fantastic time. The location couldn't have been better, close to shopping and a metro line in a quiet residential area. The apartment was way nicer than staying in an impersonal hotel as well as more cost effective. We really enjoyed being able to get up and make our own breakfast while getting ready for the day.
Romantic and original
I made a surprise to my spouse and stayed there in July 2010. What a great experience, we both loved our stay ! It was clean, well located, Christophe was very warm and helpful ...
SF Bay Area
Ideal location in local neighborhood
My husband and I very much enjoyed our brief stay in Paris at the Boulangerie. The location was perfect as it was not touristy but just minutes awat from two metro stations and walking distance to the Tour Eiffel. The neighborhood had a great produce market and cheese shop as well as a grocery store and several nice restaurants and cafe's. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom and kitchenette were just right for our needs. Our host Christophe was very hospitable. He gave us a short tour of the neighborhood and left us his favorite almond croissants in the room.
Lesley and Billy Lumsden
Enjoyed the location of the property - found lovely restaurants etc close by - close to major attractions by foot or metro - the apartment was clean, had everything you needed, very comfortable bed, ideal for having a quick breakfast and setting off for the day.
excellent customer service...we hope to stay in the future!
Christophe was extremely accommodating when my husband and I made changes to our travel plans. We hope to visit Paris again in the near future and be their guests!
Incredibly romantic, I recommended this property to all couples !!!
real paris in a charming place :)
everything was superb!close to metro,shop, restaurants, brasseries. and in such a lovely district. recomend with all my heart. :)
Live like a Parisian!
Wonderful experience at the Boulangerie Room...Christophe and angelique were extremely kind and helpful. The location of the room was perfect for us; 15 minute walk from the Eiffel Tower and the metro right around the corner- it was close enough in the city to see the sights yet far enough away from the hustle and bustle. If you are a light sleeper, bring ear plugs as this room is in a building where normal Parisians live, and get up to go to work in the morning.
The shower was wonderful and the bed was very comfortable.The fridge was also nice so we could keep cold water and juice and having the nespresso machine was very helpful getting us going in the morning! Would stay here again!
Great place! Away from tourists, but close to the attractions.
What a wonderful room. The owner was so accommodating with anything I needed! The neighborhood represents modern Parisian life, close to the attractions, but far away from all the crowds. Some great some restaurants in the area would have been overlooked if I was staying in the heart of the city. "Le Petit Couchon" was my favorite restaurant...a 2 minute walk from the room!
Calgary AB Canada
Fabulous suite in an amazing area...SO close to Eiffel tower!
My now husband and I came to Paris to elope in March :) We stayed in the sewing room from March 2-11 2010, and we had our photographer (Brent) accompany us who stayed in the Boulangerie room. My husband and I absolutely fell in love with the quaint studio apartment, and Brent didn't want to leave. At the end of our short stay we really did feel like Parisians :) Both Angelique and Christophe are incredibly hospitable beyond words. Christophe put together an amazing package for us which was all laid out upon our arrival, this included red roses, wonderful champagne, red wine, assorted cheeses, and delectable pastries. Angelique even made appointments/arrangements for my hair and makeup the day of my wedding, she even met me at the apartment and accompanied me to the galleries lafayettes to have my makeup completed at Chanel! She stayed with me, even assisted me in to my wedding dress...it was all so exciting and she was a huge part of our wonderful Paris memories. We were met with such kindness, even the people in the neighbourhood are so incredibly nice. The monoprix is literally right around the corner, which we found to be perfect to purchase some baguettes and brie for the odd meal, you are surrounded with bakeries and butcher and cheese shops, at the monoprix you will find incredibly affordable wine (the most inexpensive we saw was 1,38 euros). We used the metro quite frequently, so it was SO nice to have it right down the road. Everything is just as described (within walking distance) we walked to the eiffel tower on a few occasions, it was just so close. We walked the streets and went clothes shopping on a few different occasions, it definitely makes a difference staying where the Parisian locals stay, because when we did venture into the touristy areas prices for everything was increased, and sometimes double! We felt extremely safe in the neighbourhood even walking alone I felt very comfortable. Brent brought $40,000.00 worth of camera equipment with him and
SO ORIGINAL and unique experience , it was our honeymoon...
My wife and I stayed at the Boulangerie room for
three nights in January 2010, and we loved it! The
owners (Christophe, Angélique and baby Victor) were
very kind and warm people who made our stay even more
enjoyable. The interior was very comfortable and
cozy. The location was also very convenient because
of nearby metro station, shopping, and a number of
good cafe's and bakeries. It certainly was an
unforgettable memory for us.

My unforgettable stay at the Boulangerie Room
My husband and I stayed at the wonderful "Boulangerie
Room" in early August of 2009. We enjoyed the
neighbourhood, both very pleased with the location
which was quiet, yet close to the metro, shopping and
cafe life. The accommodation itself is well-appointed
and delightfully unique. It retains its 'bakery
character'and was quite a pleasure to 'come home to'.
The owners are lovely people,interested in creating
an authentic Parisian experience for visitors. We
enjoyed living among the locals and highly recommend
the 'Boulangerie Room'
