Interaction with Guests
I will try my best to see all the guests during their stay.
-Located in the very heart of Saint Germain des Prés just by the historic church. For those who don't know Paris it's in the 6th arrondissement, which is one of the safest, the most prestigious and popular areas in town. There are cafes such as " Café de Flore" and "Les Deux Magots"(where famous writers such as Hemingway and Sartre used to hang out). There are also high-end boutiques such as Louis Vuitton, Armani, etc located just around the corner from the apartment.
-Considered by many to be the safest area in Paris
-Fantastic shopping right outside the door
-Restaurants, cafes, bars, groceries, bakeries, galleries..etc
-There is a supermarket Monoprix open from 9am to 10pm around the corner from the apartment, and also Carrefour open from 7:30am to 11pm (open also Sunday morning) is about 10 minutes away.

Other Things to Note
It is on the 5th floor (top floor) and no elevator. So it can be a little bit tough if you have heavy luggage. But I am normally waiting for you at the apartment, so I will just come downstairs and help you carry your bags!
No big parties, no smoking, no pets please. Check in time is after 2pm, and check out is before 11am, but I am very flexible. There is no problem checking in earlier or checking out later - as long as the apartment is available. So just let me know!
Really good location, in the middle of everything. Spacious enough for two, even though I stayed on my own. Am tall myself, and as the apt is kind of in the attic I felt at times a bit too tall, but it has a cosy tent like feeling. Shower is next to the bed, is ok, but has little privacy. All in all good place for Paris.
The location is perfect! Very close to the metro and great restaurants. Keep in mind you do have to walk up some flights of narrow stairs so heavy luggage may not be a good idea. The toilet is separate from the room, but private. The ceilings are a little low as it's on the top floor, so if you're tall, it may be difficult. But you really can't beat location!
Tada gave us clear instructions to the apartment, although we didn't meet him in person. The neighbourhood location is very central, literally steps away from the metro, few mins walk to the Louvre. The room is simple and compact with all you need. It will fit nicely for two person but not recommended for those with heavy/bulky luggage. More than 60 steps up the flight of stairs.
Muy buena ubicación, a mi gusto está ubicado en el mejor barrio! El departamento es tal cual lo describen las fotos. Perfecto para una estadía para dos personas en París. Limpio y práctico. Muy buena experiencia, lo recomiendo!
Tada's apartment was perfect for what we were looking for. It's in the best location and so is easy to walk everywhere. The stairs getting up to the apartment were probably a good thing for us after all the eating we were doing, but I wouldn't recommend for anyone with walking difficulties. Thank you Tada for a wonderful stay!
