The room is with a very comfortable and large bed (160x200) in a quiet 2 bedroom apartment (57 m2 - 614 sqf in total). Shared use of bathroom and separate WC - possible use of the kitchen. Free WIFI with broadband.
The neighborhood is lively with theaters, clubs, restaurants and shops in the nearby. It is 3 min from Place de la Republique with 5 metro lines crossing (3, 5, 8, 9 and 11) and numerous buses. Easy access from all train stations and from airports. It is also next to charming Canal St Martin. Very easy access to historical Marais quarter (10 min walk) and the hypercentre (Notre Dame, Les Halles...).
From my place, you can easily reach all major tourist spots (Louvre, Eiffel Tower, Champs Elysées, Montmartre, Musée d'Orsay, Pompidou Center, Pere Lachaise Cemetery...) in Paris within 20-25 minutes by metro, or even by walking.

I booked this place for a friend of mine so I report her feedback:
A nice friendly place, clean and discreet. Jean Francois and his friend organized the room in a very short time for my last-minute stop in Paris. Thank you :)
Nice guests! They helped us a lot! The room is small but it worth the price! The neighborhood is nice and very well connected!
Thanks Jean for hosting. convenient location , very homely apartment.. thanks again
It was really nice to stay at Jean-Francois' home! We had a quiet room with an excellent access to the canal and the city center. We would choose to stay there again! Thank you for hosting us that nicely!
Jean francois and Huy were super nice hosts! The flat is close to the metro and you can get around easy. I can reccomend to stay here!
nice room, well located in the center
gentle and nice hosts !
Great stay :) close to everything and easy to find. Great hosts, yummy breakfast and comfy bed. Perfect stay!
The location is great, the hosts are very hospitable, and if year are invited to stay over for dinner, your extremely lucky (Huy is an excellent cook.
This was our first time in Paris and we were very happy with our four night stay. The apartment is centrally located which is fantastic, especially after a long day of walking. Our hosts were friendly but also respected our personal space. When we asked for suggestions they told us about a cozy bistro for dinner which was perfect. The room is lovely and warm, although personally I found the bed to be quite firm (I have a sensitive back). Overall we would definitely recommend this as a place to stay for fellow travelers :)
Wonderful couple! Really great location in Paris gets you to pretty much any part of the city with the republique metro stop.
