I expect the place to be kept very clean, as I do. The room is clean when you arrive and I expect you to leave it clean when you leave. Cleaning of the toilet in the hallway is the responsibility of all who use it, which includes the current guest.
Please be respectful to the neighbors - no excessive noise at inappropriate times which means at night or very early in the morning (Between 10 PM until 7 AM)
* WATER/ELECTRICITY USE:
Please pay attention to your water and electricity use and don't leave the lights and electric/electronic equipment on when you leave.
* NO CANDLES ALLOWED!
…is the best policy from my point of view, however, if you end up using them, put them in the sink - safer that way :)

of $100 is required and $25 is considered to be a cleaning fee. Deposit is fully refundable within 48 hrs after leaving, if the place is left as clean as upon arrival and there are no damages.
This is up to you, however, since the room is on the 6th floor and there is no elevator, small luggage is advised. Whatever size luggage you bring, please be well prepared to haul it up the stairs yourself :)

Sara's rooftop room is very cosy and the perfect size for a solo short stay in Paris! Great neighbourhood & friendly host who will check in to make sure you are enjoying yourself.
It was my first AirBnB. I stayed for 2 weeks and I felt like a real petit Parisienne!:) Also very safe, happy and at home! It's quit and had real good sleep! Nice bed. Everything Sara describes in her Guidebook is very helpful and nice to know! De room is small and there is no shower but you have a sink with hot water and you can cook. There is a swimming pool around the corner for shower or to free showers nearby!It's very clean and cosy. The toilet is just outside the room and I never saw anyone!:) De wifi is very good! You have to walk 6 stairs, but after a week it's easy!;) The neighborhood is safe and there are a lot of nice bars, shops, musea and Metro near by! I definitely will come back! I met Sara and she's very nice! Everything she describes is correct!
I had a great time staying here! Maya's directions were very clear and it was easy to arrive and get settled in. It's a great spot from which to explore the city. I really enjoyed having my own space and staying in such a lovely old building. Maya describes everything very accurately in the listing.
I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again!
Delighted to have had the chance to stay in the 'rooftops' once again; this time my visit was for 3 weeks, and very comfortable ones they were...the room is very compact (and surprisingly quiet)..Sara dropped by early in my stay to say hello and see if all was well...I took advantage of my time in Paris to see many photo exhibits...finding everything very accessible on foot or by using the metro...will be back for the next biennial photo event, and will definitely try to reserve this ideal spot..
I was two weeks in the room and is approved! It has everything you need to spend a few days (stove, cutlery, cups, plates, radio, sink, mirror, etc.). The neighborhood is extremely quiet and the neighborhood has many shops as well as bakeries and supermarkets nearby. Also located very close to the metro (line 2) and the Champs-Élysées.
Sara was very compromised and helpful with all my (website hidden): If you spend many days in the room suggest search in advance the location of public toilets.
Anyway, this room is perfect for spending a few days in Paris.
The room was lovely. I love it from the beginning to the end of my stay in Paris. The location was nice, very close to the metro and bus stops. It was also a nice walk to the Champs-Elysees and the Eiffel Tower. Although I didn't get to meet Sara, we communicated very well over email. Sara checked on how was my stay and the place. I will definitely come back to the place and hope to meet Sara in person. I definitely recommend.
Maya was my first host on airbnb and it was a great experience. Her place was quiet , neat and clean. She always replied emails quickly and provided me with information I needed for my trip in Paris. I got a chance to meet with her upon my arrival and she kindly showed me around in the neighborhood. I really appreciated it and felt lucky to have Maya as my host .
I live in Paris. I am free-lance translator and photographer.
I like to travel, hike, visit art galleries, read, watch movies.
I am very health conscious and try to eat organic whenever possible - for my own benefit but also for the planet and to support organic farming.
I love nature and the animals and I love open spaces, mountains, forests, the ocean.
I meditate and do yoga and I am interested in alternative healing.
I lived and traveled to US, South America and recently to Asia.
I especially love visiting islands :)
When I travel, I look for reasonably priced, clean and quiet accommodations and focus on sightseeing and learning about the culture and the people.
I think Airbnb is a great resource for travelers such as myself and that's why I became a host.
I believe that "Live and let live" is as good a motto as any :)
