“A homely and happy place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

Cecilia and her beautiful guesthouse are, as other reviewers have said " a real gem" to find in Paris. To say that Cecilia is lovely and helpful is a gross understatement! She absolutely went out of her way for us, and the other guests, assisting with metro cards, onward train fares to Europe, recommending places to go and eat, and generally spreading her good cheer and wonderful positive energy on to us, so needless to say, we had a fantastic time in Paris! The garden is lovely and large with loads of places to sit and relax or weather permitting, have an outside dinner. Theres garden gnomes everywhere and lots of knick knacks to make you feel at home. The Studio is the same, very cosy and homely but also really convenient, with a nice clean fridge, stovetop and cooking appliances. Complimentary coffee and croissants and juice, jams and butters. The bathroom is also very very clean. The shower is hot and powerful and Cecilia even supplies a showercap if required! Everything you need is available. Cecilia has an amazing energy and love for what she does. We couldnt recommend her place enough. For anyone with concerns about proximity to the city, this was also a concern of mine. However, the guesthouse is only a minutes walk to the train station and from there only 4 stops to St Lazare station or one stop if you take an express. The trains are very frequent and we found it to be no problem and no hassle. For what you get at Cecilias its so worth it to be just a tiny bit out of the city.

I don't know where to begin - I can not say enough wonderful things about Cecilia and her Guesthouse. She could quite possibly be the loveliest lady in France. She had all the time in the world to assist you with directions, recommendations and advice and her place was charming to say the very least. Located less then 10 mins out of Paris central the train stop is only 2 minutes away although you would never know.

Cecilia brought us hot croissants every morning - without us even asking and even left me a birthday present at my door on the morning of my birthday.

It was a privilege to stay with Cecilia and I will recommend her to my family and friends.

We spent 5 nights at this guest house which is located a wee way out of the heart of Paris. Cecilia is the real gem of Paris.. She absolutely goes out of her way to make you at home, plus helps you plan your outings, she even went out of her way to show us the best restaurants close by.

The only thing that I was a little disappointed in was that we were a little out of the centre of Paris.. This required a train ride and then a metro ride into the main attractions... Not a biggie but an extra expense and time.

Thank you Cecilia for all your help and kindness...

Cecilia has been a superb host to us! We stayed at her place at the start of the trip and it definitely put the start of our trip in good spirits! She's very welcoming and accommodating.

When we arrived, she served us breakfast, gave us lots of cookies & chocolates and helped us with orienting ourselves around the area of her place. She even got us cheaper transport and helped us with our itinerary for the next 3 days.

All throughout our stay, she has been very helpful and great! The room was great as well and properly maintained everyday and with nice snacks and drinks every morning.

I highly recommend this place to anyone considering a trip to Paris.

Thanks a lot Cecilia and I hope we meet again! You're such an awesome grandma to us :)

Cecilia is a rare gem! We had the 5 best days of our lives @ Cecilia's Guest House. She is kind and caring and generous and makes your stay everything you imagine and so much more. She walked us around the neighborhood, showed us how to use the metro and brought us warm pastries every morning. Our trip to Paris would not have been what it was if it were not for Cecilia. STAY HERE! :)

Before we went to Paris I had read all the reviews about Cecilia's Guesthouse, and I was wondering why all these people were so united in their opinions and said that this place and especially the owner was brilliant. Now we totally understand them! Actually we're in the club of people loving Cecilia and her Guesthouse=) She is SUPER nice and welcoming! We came late at night, moreover we got mixed over the dates and came one day earlier. I don't know anyone else who would've let us in. But not Cecilia! She let us in, warmed tea for us, made sure we felt like at home and only after that she went to sleep. Only an angel could do this! In the morning she told us about all the places we could visit, helped us with the tickets, showed us the area of Asnieres-sur-Seine. On the next morning she treated us to breakfast and it was fantastic: homemade, oven-fresh and very delicious! Thank to Cecilia we felt like Parisiens) We would love to return in future maybe in summer to enjoy the beatiful garden around the house, and we will definitely be recommending this place to our friends. Thank you Cecilia so much for a great holiday!
