The space

Ideally located in the centre of Paris, small studio/duplex in 17th century building, renovated in 2011.
On a charming pedestrian street in the fashionable Montorgueil area of Paris' 2nd district. V. good transport connections, Chatelet-les-Halles.

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******

This is an excellent location for walking or bicycling to most of the best places in Paris. My wife and I enjoyed the nightlife immediately surrounding the apartment and the great food also nearby. I would highly recommend this location to anyone but no more then 2 people should ideally stay as the flat is not large by any sense.

Francisco was an amazing host and was very accommodating. He allowed us to drop our bags off before check in, which was especially helpful since we arrived in Paris in the morning. The flat is in an amazing location, with the several metro stops within a 3 minute walk and plenty of restaurant options. The flat was perfectly clean and very cozy for two people. Highly recommend staying here.

Francisco was extremely flexible and welcoming. The space was clean and organized. While small, it had everything you need. It was a perfect and easy stay in Paris. Close to the metro and in a good neighborhood.

This place is great. Close to a lot of metros and easy access to lots of cafes and things to do. 20 minute walk to Notre Dame.. Where if you have luggage as there are four very tight flights of stairs to get to the apartment

Excellent location and everything was as described. Francisco outlines everything perfectly and we could not have had a better experience...we didn't have to deal with anyone when we arrived, but Francisco and his friends were a phone call away if we needed anything. The place was clean. As mentioned, the bathroom space is small, but manageable. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Paris, thank you Francisco!

To say that this apartment is small is an understatement. It was minuscule, and my partner and I didn't find it easy to live in. Part of why we love Airbnb is because it allows us to feel at home while we are away, this might as well have been a hostel. It was hard to get up the 4 flights of stairs with our suitcase and the building itself was interest, but not for those who may have issues with winding staircases. While in a good location, I found myself dreading having to return to our apartment in the evenings.

Hi/Salut/Hola/Ola/Ciao/Merhaba/Salam/Namaste

I am half Spanish and half British, I worked as a project manager until recently and now leading walking holidays around the world with a UK based company. 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 Lucky and Philippe 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!
