Ideally located right in the centre of Paris, small studio/duplex (14m2/150sq ft), in 17th century building, fully renovated in 2011.
The studio is located in the fashionable Montorgueil area of Paris' 2nd arrondissement. The area is famous for its pedestrian streets, packed with small boutiques, cafes an restaurants. Just 5 minutes walk from the Pompidou centre and Le Marais and 10 min walk to the Louvre and Notre Dame cathedral and other sites. There are 3 metro stations within 5min walk including Chatelet-Les Halles for direct travel to CDG and Orly airports as well as Eurodisney.
The apartment is fully renovated, very compact an clean. It includes a small living room, open kitchen area, and a shower room on the 1st level and upstairs is the bedroom (140cm/55in double bed) with wooden beams and a skylight.
Free (and fast) wifi internet is available, towels and bed linen provided.
The apartment sleeps 2 comfortably in the double bed upstairs and has a sofa bed (120cm wide) downstairs for a 3rd person if needed.
I live in the apartment next door so I'm very flexible with times if arriving late in the evening, or if extra towels, translation help, transport explanation etc is needed I'm happy to help.
I do travel quite often though, so if I am not around I have friends nearby that can help.
The area is full of restaurants, cafes, bars and clubs, yet the apartment is completely noise free which is quite surprising in the heart of a city.
Bear in mind that the studio is on the 4th floor without a lift, particularly if you have a lot of luggage.
*****Please note that while minimum stay will sometimes be set to 2 days, usually I will accept 2 days only when there is a gap of 2 days between 2 reservations, (otherwise the workload of cleaning and ironing becomes too important). Normal minimum stay is 3 DAYS******

The apartment has a smoke detector and smoking is not allowed. Departure time is before 12noon and arrival time after 15:00, however as I live next door you can leave lugage with me if you need to. There is a cleaning which is included in the final price that is shown by airbnb.
Lovely stay in this cosy apartment, convenient to the metro and attractions. All your required essentials in this apartment and communication and instructions to the apartment were good. A good guide book was also pleasant to ensure a comfortable stay. Thank you.
The apartment is great! Such a nice place. Very clean and tidy. It's very central and close to metro stations, you can easily walk down to Notre Dame and the Louvre. There's a folder in the apartment, containing recommendation for close by cafes and restaurants, definitely worth a look, there are lots of them in the area, which is not too touristy either.
The apartment is very small, but my girlfriend and I had no trouble with that. If you don't travel with just cabin luggage like we did, you might find it a challenge to move your big luggage through the corridors into the apartment.
All in all I would say this is the place to stay in Paris, I can definitely recommend it and will be back next time I am in Paris.
The apartment is centrally located to everything which is great. Note that the apartment is tiny -- good for 2 people if a couple or very close. The apartment is very clean as well.
Warning: apartment is on the 4th floor so people with mobility issues are probably not ideal for this place.
Best part about the apartment is its proximity to tons of places to eat. It is literally a 2 minute walk to Rue Montorgueil.
Had a wonderful experience with the apartment. Francisco was very welcoming via phone as he was traveling. We met his friend Lucky who was very friendly and pleasant. I would recommend this apartment if you are looking for simple for your travels. It was small but cozy and had everything we needed for our 3 night stay and in a great location! Just be prepared to walk some stairs to get to the space! :)
We had a lovely stay in Francisco's apartment. It is in a fantastic location, a short walk from the Marais. Although small it had everything we needed. We would recommend staying in this lovely little flat.
The location is great and the pictures and description were accurate and considering the price, it is a very economical way to stay in a central location and see Paris. The Internet connection was good and relatively fast. I didn't mind the small size but the towels and supplies were the absolute minimum. The futon slipcover was stained. There were exactly two outlets (nothing in bathroom) and with an open shower, nothing to dry off the space after the shower.
Lovely little flat, in excellent central location. Comfortable bed and a very accommodating host! Would recommend!

About the Host, Francisco
I am half Spanish and half British, I worked as a project manager until recently now in Egypt for a year studying Arabic. I love to travel and learning about world cultures. I've been based in Paris for 10 years, lived in the UK and Spain for many years, and also in Brazil and Turkey.
I love the idea of Airbnb as I really enjoy meeting interesting and open minded people from all over the world and sharing travel experiences. I have made a lot of great new friends.
I'll be happy to help you plan your stay in Paris in whatever way I can: language questions, transport information, recommendations on sights, restaurants, clubs, cafes...etc.
When I'm not in Paris my friends Agnes and Lucky will be available for any help you need, and I'm always just a phone call/instant message/email way.
Above all, enjoy your trips to this beautiful city!
