Bon jour Rosemary! We've been to Paris several times, but never have spent much time in the Montmartre area. Such a nice surprise, and a great welcome in beautiful, secure and quiet surroundings (I consider any current construction activity a plus for interesting activity). Very comfortable room with lots of storage, as well as a 5th floor advantage for the inviting patio a mn d living room space. Morning trips to the bakery with Rosemary were a highlight...we are bread-aholics and enjoyed all the new tastes. We were pleasantly surprised with the great public transportation options and restaurants. Rosemary gave us a tour of her rental apartment on the 3rd floor and it also is very inviting...there you also have the option of her expertise.We totally enjoyed our stay at 52 Clichy and highly recommend that you choose the B&B or apartment to enjoy Paris.
I stayed at 52 Clichy for 2 nights during my 2 week solo travel of Europe. The 3 days/2 nights at 52 Clichy were my most relaxing and stress free days of the entire trip. Rosemary does a superb job at making her guests feel right at home. Each morning started with breakfast on the balcony which was the highlight of each day. Rosemary sets the balcony table with a spread of pastries, fresh fruits, and beverages that is a perfect start to a day of exploration. Guests also have the option of joining Rosemary on the trip to the local bakery in the morning (highly recommended) to pick out which pastries you'd like. On these walks Rosemary taught me so much about Paris and the neighborhood she lives in as well as giving me advice on where to go for the day.
Overall this was one of the most pleasant Airbnb-type stays I've ever had and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a stay in Paris.
Rosemary was the perfect hostess. She provided much more than fresh pastries, juice and coffee/tea each morning on her beautiful balcony.
She became a confidant and guided us on Parisian lifestyle while giving us the best do’s and don’ts that gave us the best experience possible.
I would not hesitate to book 52 Clichy again.
Close to the metro, great shops and restaurants within walking distance, balcony breakfast is a must, breadth of knowledge about all things in Paris. Don’t look for anything else. You’ve found it here.
Great location in Paris with wonderful hostess listing & helping with sightseeing attractions & travel arrangements. Breakfast fresh and beautifully arranged (fruit, yogurt, bread & pastries, etc..per your specific restrictions). Patio for fresh air and dinning enjoyment. Beds clean and with freshly pressed sheets. I have stayed at her apartment and B&B and feel like family, sure bet if you are staying in Paris.
Rosemary makes you feel so welcome ~ it is just like living in Paris for a short while!
The breakfasts were delicious and beautifully presented.
The bed was very comfortable and most welcome after long days of walking and sightseeing!
Plus Rosemary has lots of helpful information so that you can make the most of your stay. It was great to have someone to 'come home to' and chat about your amazing day! Thank you.
Rosemary was an excellent hostess. She prepared everything for us by the time we arrived. We only stayed there for 1 night but she provided it us with a guide on what to do. The restaurant she suggested was excellent. The breakfast was excellent!
