It is composed of a living room / kitchen and a bathroom on the first floor, a mezzanine with sofa / TV, and a second mezzanine with a bed (just under the roof).
The apartment is ideal for a couple. However, there is a sofa-bed on the first floor that works for for one or two extra people if you need.
Supermarket is just 100m from the building entrance, and there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants in the area!!
The apartment is empty and you will get full access, including cable tv, internet, wi-fi etc.

The apartment is in a great location. Close to the metro and a cool bar Bespoke. Apartment is small but very doable for two people. If you go in the summer recommend moving the AC unit up to the bedroom loft to ensure a good nights sleep. Everything was nice and tidy. Alex was very attentive and even checked to make sure things were fine. Great place
Much to our disappointment our experience at Alex's apartment was not a pleasant one. When we first arrived we were incredibly excited, as the apartment is lovely and true to the photos. The neighborhood in which it is situated is also very pleasant and convenient. Unfortunately due to the extreme heat in Paris at the time and lack of ventilation, we were unable to continue to stay at the apartment. We also had issues with the key and found the front door very difficult to open, which was quite frustrating.
Both these issues were out of Alex's control which we understand and respect.
Although we didn't meet Alex we found he was very helpful with directions and contact initially. Unfortunately we did find the response time a little delayed when experiencing problems.
The apartment is exactly as described, and the photographs speak for itself. The apartment is beautiful, small and cosy, and has everything you need. Not ideal for a tall person unless you don't mind bending slightly in the shower and crawling into bed. (We had no problems though) Bare in mind there's no elevator to the fifth floor so be ready for a workout!
My partner and I stayed there for 2 weeks and we definitely would recommend for anyone wanting to visit the city of Paris. It's close to a metro station and grocery store making it easy to adventure around the city! The metro line closest to the apartment has all the necessary stops to get around the city with no hassles!
We unfortunately didn't get to meet Alex in person but he was super helpful with directions from the airport to the apartment. He also replied instantly with all my messages and questions.
Recommend it without a doubt!
Perfect location for exploring Paris. Amazing cafes and restaurants around the corner. Fantastic market on Thursdays and Sunday's. Easy to get to Euro Disney from flat also.
Metro 200m away from flat.
We loved Alex's place! It clean, bright and cozy as described. It was right next to a metro stop which made it convenient to get around. It's also right next to a large grocery store- so every night after a long day of exploring we were able to go to the store and grab groceries to make dinner. Then we'd watch movies/Netflix at night (great wifi connection)! We didn't want to leave, it felt like home. Thanks Alex!!
Stayed at Alex's place for 3 days and it was great. Easy instructions & directions to get there. Location is really good with good transport access. Apartment great for 1/2 people - everything we needed. Recommend to all. Thanks Alex.
