First and foremost, Philippe and Natalie are the most gracious hosts that you will ever meet.
They go out of their way to make you feel right at home. From Philippe carrying your luggage all the way to Natalie giving you great shopping tips. The breakfast every morning was fresh and includes great conversation. I think Philippe could be a stand up comedian as he had me laughing all the time. In addition, they sit with you and help you plan out your day (Thanks to TA, I already had most of it planned, but it was nice to get hints that you can't read about, like a better bus route, where to shop or even making a reservation). Our room was the "Place de la tour Eiffel" which was spacious and immaculate. The shower is in the room, but the room had the toilet (private just for your use) just in front of the door (kind of cool as you have more space and privacy, but can be a pain if you make multiple trips to bathroom in middle of the night). The B&B is in a great location as it only 1/2 block away from the Villiers Metro station, which services two different metro lines (2 and 3). We were able to get to any major attraction within 20 to 25 min. It is also a great location because you can walk to plenty of restaurants, a grocery store, ATM, and even a great bus line. I would book early as there are only three rooms and they get booked fast! The B & B was like a home away from home.
