I enjoyed my stay on Le Powell as it was a relaxing setting. I arrived early and Christian was very nice and I was able to relax in their main dining area and watch tennis on T.V. The Levallois area does not have any of the main tourist sites in Paris but there were restaurants nearby and buses were not far. If you are staying for less than 5 days you are not given a key so must be let in and out each time you go out - part of security for the boat, but felt awkward to me. I stayed in the Lavande room which was comfortable and had an ensuite shower, however the toilet is shared by all the guests. Breakfast was good and could be taken at any time. I'm glad I tried this experience but overall, staying on a boat has too many quirks for me and I would not do it again.

My husband and I recently visited Paris, where he had to attend a conference in the La Defense area. But since I was coming too, I asked if we could find something more in the city instead of the conference hotel (where I knew all social conversations would still revolve around business! :-) I found this delightful gem and it exceeded every one of my expectations. (Plus we spent about the same for 5 nights, as we would have for 3 nights at the conference hotel.) We also took advantage of the offer to have the host couple make us dinner our first evening - it turned out to be the best meal we had all week despite fine-dining within the city. It is just a tad bit away from the city centre, but an easy and quick commute by metro, and a reasonable $10-$15 taxi fare when we stayed out late. I would recommend this beautiful and tranquil houseboat B&B on the Seine to anyone! It is first-rate!!!

Our stay with Christian and Marie was more than we could hope for. We spent 5 wonderful and relaxing days and felt so sorry to leave to continue our journey, we were made so very welcome and were provided with invaluable advice on transport and venues. Our Jazz club outing with them was so enjoyable, we feel we have made friends for live. We could not recommend this more highly...a fantastic experience. Thank you Marie and Christian!
