Eric's place was wonderful. You can't beat the location. It was very close to two different metro stops and we were able to easily get around by walking or metro. Check in and out was a breeze. Eric met us at the apartment and had a map waiting for us. He gave us so many valuable recommendations and wrote everything out on the map for us. I carried that map around for our entire stay! It was so helpful! He kept in touch before and during our stay and again was extremely helpful. The apartment itself was just like the pictures. Decorated very nicely. The large bed was comfortable and we had everything we needed. Would highly recommend this apartment! But maybe not suitable for people that can't do stairs.

From the moment we met Eric outside the Sleeping Lion we were happy with our decision to stay. The apartment was beautifully decorated with all the amenities. It is perfectly situated between 2 metro lines allowing to move easily throughout the city. There are many places to eat as well as 2 grocery stories within walking distance as well. Word of warning, there are stairs (4-5 flights maybe?), but where in Paris aren't there? Also, Eric helped us with our bags!

Location! Location! Location! Awesome! Awesome! Awesome! Eric and Roland's place is exactly as described and pictured. Beautiful classic building with all the modern features you want or need. Smack dab in the middle of the Marais, THE BEST neighborhood for your Paris trip. Wonderful hosts who help with luggage, make awesome to-do and to-eat recommendations and who are great with communication and are truly there to help you have the best time. So glad we stayed here!

Eric was a welcoming, helpful, and an all around great host. He was full of awesome recommendations of things to do while in Paris and was readily available if I needed anything or had any questions. The place was immaculate and exactly as described. It was close to public transit, shops and restaurants, while also in a very quiet neighborhood. Our stay in Paris was awesome and we had a great time:) thanks for everything!

Eric and Roland's apartment is great and just as described. It is very clean and comfortable, including the bed. The location is perfect for many restaurants and access to the metro. Eric was very responsive to messages during our stay and, when we had a problem, worked to solve the problem as quickly as possible. Highly recommend this apartment!

Perfect location and accommodations. We came by train and exited Sully Moreland which is a block away from the apartment. You entered a cute garden courtyard. Stairs and then a cute apartment with just the right amount of amenities for a short or long stay. Eric was great and met us there and communicated before and when needed during our stay quite well. Perfect location: 2 blocks from the Seine, right in the La Marais with its many restaurants, close to the Latin Quarter, walk to Norte Dame, Godin Museum, Picasso Museum and Sully Moreland is direct 4-5 stop to the Lourve. After so much walking we didn't want to go far to eat and there is a great Italian pizza place around the corner, a bakery and grocery store the other direction. Will definitely stay here on our next stay in Paris.

I made the "sleeping lion" for the pleasure. 
For the pleasure to create a different style of accommodation: I keept the basic essentials of a modern an confortable  flat, but mixed with a twist of history made of customized antics and typical from "the Marais", where the apartment is located. 
For the pleasure to welcome, to meet, to advise my guests who are looking for more than just a room for the night. 
For the pleasure to build a network with people who are on the same wavelenght and like travels and exchanges.
I'm into art, architecture, photography, design, history... Paris  and much more.
I hope you'll enjoy staying at the "sleeping lion" !
