Reviewed March 30, 2013

My wife and I stayed at Le85 in January of this year for 5 nights. We will never stay anywhere else in Paris ever again. Didier and Valerie are excellent hosts. Breakfast every morning was fresh croissants, homemade brownies and jam, and fresh-squeezed orange juice. We stayed in the large room, which was very comfortable. The location was excellent, right by the Metro stop, walking distance to Montmarte and Canal St. Martin, and very convenient to Gare du Nord and Gare de l'Est. The hosts were also extremely helpful with giving directions for scenic walks and recommendations for restaurants.

We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms at Le 85 for two nights last week, and absolutely loved it! The room was immaculately clean with a huge comfy bed and plenty of clean towels and Didier, the owner, made us feel completely at home. The breakfast was beautiful, plenty of croissants, tea, fruit and yoghurt as well as a lovely chat with Didier about Paris - he certainly had plenty of recommendations of how to spend our short stay.

Le 85 is in an excellent location if you are arriving at Gare du Nord - just a five minute walk away. Although not in the centre of Paris or close to the main attractions, the location was perfect for us as we enjoyed walking around (although there is a Metro station just around the corner which was also very convenient)

As some other reviews have mentioned, there is a shower and sink in the room, but only very slight downside was the shared toilet which is just outside the room - although we never had to wait and it was always very clean so it wasn't really an issue for us.

We looked at so many hotels before booking, and really cannot imagine that there is anywhere in Paris that is better value for money. We will definitely be returning soon!

I am so happy that I did find this place for my daughters first stay in Paris. We were at Didier and Valeries B&B for 4 nights in februari 2013. And you cant find more loving and caring hosts. I have been in Paris quite a few times during 34 years and this stay was really special. We really felt like we were taken care of. The breakfast is excellent. We stayed in the Baudelaire room and it was perfect for us. The bed was very nice, and at the weekend it was totally silent. The original floors and the beautiful rooms with its original windows and decorated cealings is beatiful. Everything is very clean and tasteful. Didier and Valerie is really doing everything to make you feel welcome !

Once we stepped inside Didier's wonderful B&B, we knew we had chosen the perfect place to stay. As a family of 2 adults and a 12 year old, it was ideal to have 2 very spacious bedrooms, each with own shower and lovely balcony. Didier opened up the connecting door so our daughter had direct access to our room if needed. He also made her specially welcome with sweets and English comic books placed in her room. When I needed a quick medical appointment, Didier didn't just book this for me but he also accommpanied me and was prepared to act as traslator if required. The location was very convenient and we felt safe wandering around at night. We particularly enjoyed being able to experience a genuine taste of life in a tasteful Parisian apartment. Highly recommended.

Preferring to stay in small characterful accommodation wherever we travel. This is the perfect spot in Paris...5 mins walk from Gare Du Nord...especially if arriving on Eurostar. Beautiful rooms in true French Décor. Didier and Valerie are the perfect hosts imparting much advice over a delightful breakfast. Printing maps of walks from the door... even recommended a short stroll to canal on the day of departure...so no waiting around in the station burdened with the luggage..Also recommended eateries full of locals covering all price ranges....Because of this perfect place to stay one cannot fail to fall in love with Paris! Will definitely return again and again and again...

We have stayed in hotels in Paris on many occasions in the past. None of the previous stays came close to matching our experience this time in le 85 Paris. Didier and Valerie more than lived up to our expectations which was quite somehting because we were expecting a lot based on the reviews we had read from other travellers on Trip Advisor. They gave us such a warm welcome that we immediately felt at home in their beautiful flat.
Didier's advice on where to go was invaluable and we saw places in Paris that were completely new to us. We wouldn't have found them without Didier's maps. He gave us a list of places to eat and we were pleasantly surprised, both by the high quality of the food and the reasonable prices. You can get a really good two course meal at lunchtime for 14 euros (try Hugo's or Jolis Momes, for example) In the evening prices were around 20 euros or 25 euros. All of the places Didier sent us to (near the flat) were full of French people, always a good sign. Le 85 is in a great area, well away from tourist rip off Paris.
The room was great, very clean and comfortable. We would love to go back with friends. The set up is ideal as the two rooms are next door to one another.
To be honest the only concern that we have now is that this B and B is so special and represents such great value for money that we think it likely that it will be booked up so far in advance that we won't have a look in. We will try to beat the crowds and get in early next time........

Room Tip: We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms and we were very comfortable.

Didier and Valerie have modified their flat and added two spacious B&B rooms with private shower and sinks. We stayed in the smaller of the two rooms but the room was by no means small... especially for European standards. We had plenty of room and having the private shower was a huge plus.

The breakfast was great every day. Freshly baked croissants and freshly squeezed orange juice was part of the meal every day. Most days also had cheese, meat, fruit, yogurt... definitely more than enough food to tide us over to a late lunch.

DIdier was a tremendous host and assisted us with recommendations of places to visit and local restaurant tips, etc. His English is great but he was also willing to speak French with my husband who was practicing his second language. We very much appreciated that :)

We will definitely be back!
