“funky paris retreat”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

Just returned from Paris. Stayed a few nights at this wonderful and reasonably priced B&B. The owners are so warm and welcoming and incredibly helpful with maps and suggestions for your days and nights, Breakfast was great in the artistic dining area filled with "pop art", the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The B&B is just a short walk from the metro and easy to get where you want to go. We loved the peace and quiet and the lovely patio garden. It is safe to walk at night and the B&B is quite secure. We loved this place and are sure to return.

If you care for the quality of your stay and the atmosphere, the Maison Bacana is the place for you. Beautiful, clean, well eqipped rooms (hairdryer and movies about France to watch in the evening!), good location (quiet, but 15 min from the centre by train and train station is 5 min by foot), fantastic French breakfast and Fred who helped us save time and money by giving us tips about sightseeing in Paris. It's rare nowadays to encounter a host who really cares about his guests' well-being, thank you Fred!

We stayed at La Maison Bacana for 3 nights at the end of a 2 week trip to the Cote d'Azur and SanRemo and could not have imagined a better way to finish our holiday.

We were greeted by Fred who had given us the best and easiest instructions to find the b&b, and I must say, it really is 2 mins walk from the station, which was such good news! We were shown to our room and helped with our bags, and left to settle for a few minutes before having a welcome drink and some biscuits in the charming dining / breakfast room. Fred talked to us about what we wanted to do in Paris and where we were from, helping us to plan our first evening and showing us all the train lines etc.
He really does take an interest in his guests and give the personal touch.

The room was beautiful - exquisitely decorated and the photos on the website do not do the place justice. There is so much attention to detail in the bedrooms and the breakfast room. Everything was super clean. The bathroom was brilliant too with great quality towels and a fabulous shower. The beds were really comfortable and the best of our whole trip! Our room had its own staircase and a little terrace area which sadly we didn't get to use because of the rain!

We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast time - a great selection of croissants, toast, quiche, eggs, cake etc. Fred always gave me some foil to take the breakfast cake away with me which was so thoughtful. Every breakfast time Fred talks to all of his guests and helps them plan their day, making toast and topping up coffee (or your drink of choice).
Fred gives you inspirational ideas for your trip - for us it was an awesome flea market and quirky areas that we loved, to complement the usual tourist activities!

It really was like staying with a friend you've known for years! We definitely will be returning here!

Wooow!! since I entered to that place I feel so comfortable there. Fred ( the owner) is really friendly and charming; he is treating his customers as family/ friends and that of course made my stay thare very pleasant. Also he was providing useful advises of where to go, how to save money, which bus/ train to take... he has everything extra well organized and a lot of experience I guess dealing with tourist willing to get the most of thier trip to Paris. About the room was perfect, we got the bigest room ( 2 floors!! just for us) with our own toilet , everything super clean. We even have some dvd's related to Paris... so of course at night after the club while queuing for shower we were watching Ratatuille :P. Well, I have lots of good things to say, the breakfast was super tasty and i like the place if feels like being in a home with friends. I will definitely go back there with more friends :D.

About the location, it may seems that its far away. I measn if its the first time you visit Paris and you are using google maps to check the location. BUUUUUT; just in the corner ( 3 mins walking) there is a train station and that line took you directly to the center ( like in 10 mins you are in Notre Dame), also there are bus stops nearby so it is rally well connected and the neighbourhood is quiet and safe.

La Maison Bacana was an amazing Bed and Breakfast. I could not have asked for a better way to start my three week trip around Europe with my best friend! Upon arrival, we were greeted at the door by the owner who proceeded to help us plan out our days in Paris, all the while enjoying snacks and beverages.
He brought us to our rooms, which completely exceeded our expectations. We each had our own double bed, had our own washroom, a mini fridge and a television equipped with movies all Paris themed, which was a very cute touch. The room was so big and had so much space for all our belongings!
The next morning, we had a delicious breakfast and were able to meet the other people who were staying at the hostel. Fred (the owner), was so kind when he found out that my friend had a dairy and gluten intolerance and did everything he could to accommodate her. He even packed us some delicious lunches when we told him we would not be able to attend some of the breakfasts due to early morning activities.
The location was great, since it was only a couple minutes walk to the metro station, which made it very convenient and easy to get around.
We spent 2 more nights there, each being as amazing as the other. I will definitely recommend La Maison Bacana to anyone who goes to Paris. :)

As a group of 5 young American ladies traveling to Paris for the first time, we were not sure what to expect of the city. We have visited other European cities and stayed in inns, hostels, hotels. This was by far our best experience. Fred, the B&B owner/operator was there to greet us upon our arrival after having given us perfectly detailed instructions on how to navigate the metro/bus from our airport. He poured us all a drink of our choosing and gave us a few options of how to spend the afternoon. Every morning breakfast was phenomenal, the room was comfortable, the beds were amazing, directions were on point. Fred provided us with travel tips- what entrance to use to pass lines, best local meals/bakeries, what time of day is best for what event. He knows his stuff and is super friendly. He tailored his suggestions based on our interests- what parts of town to visit, what types of restaurants to choose.

Family, singles, friends should all make this their stay of choice. We all had nothing negative to say after our stay, only that we wished we could have stayed longer. Hubby and I will go some time in the future :)

Room Tip: Our room was phenomenal. We shared a guest house (split into two separate living areas)with one othe...
