I'm from Paris, I work as book publisher from ten years in Paris. I love traveling around the world.
Got to the location at night and fiancee was uncomfortable. Did not end up spending the night there.
Mathieu was a great host for me and my girlfriend. He was making a fresh breakfast every morning and the apartament was cute with tons of books(only in french). I certainly reccomend him because of great service , location(6 metro stations from Ille de la Cite - Paris Center) - 10 minutes, and price.
I had a wonderful time in Paris thanks to Mathieu!
The room is very nice and comfortable in the upper floor of his appartment with its own shower.
Mathieu serves a nice breakfast every morning of fresh pastries he fetches from the local baker along with fresh fruit juice and a baguette. He was very hospitable and friendly and gave some nice recommendations for sightseeing and eating.
The room is a 5 minute walk from the Belleville station and is on the line that goes to Pompidou, Hotel de Ville and Chatelet, which are all stops that provide easy access to the best sights in Paris.
Great place to stay for a visit to Paris!!
The room was perfect, positioned in a really pretty area give you the chance to visit Paris and feeling like at home. Mathieu is a really good landlord, he treats you like a king, giving the opportunity to visit the city in the best condition starting with a really good breakfast and a good conversation about books.
If you want to visit Paris in the best way I suggest this room.
Great stay, clean flat and enough space for two. Lift was handy after the long days of site seeing. Host was very accomidating and gave alot of info of the area and how to get to the flat. Would visit again.
Thank you for a lovey stay!!

Very nice apartment and host however I would recommend this particularly to couples as the area can be dangerous at night. The breakfast Mathieu provided was exquisite and generous, and his apartment was very cool and cosy :)
Charming duplex in the heart of Belleville.. very cosy and parisian
Very good place! Love It
Mathieu is very nice and friendly who speaks fluent English. Easy to talk to. His apartment is filled with tons of books of which we couldn't read as they are all in French.
The apartment is located just about 5 minutes walk from Belleville Metro Station. Surrounding it are plenty of restaurants. Despite those, it's rather quiet in the night so you can get good rest for the travel in the next day.
The room is cosy. The stairs leading to the room is very narrow and quite slippery. So, one has to be rather careful going up and down the stairs. There is no door which shields in the bathroom. For those who cares a lot about privacy, this may be something to consider.
We also enjoyed the nice Croissants and the Baguette as breakfast he offered.
All in all, we enjoyed very much staying with at Mathieu's place and this is definitely a place you can consider during your visit to Paris.
Awesome Host. You get a top floor sublet and can view the eiffel tower from the building. Mathieu was very accommodating and easy to reach (one floor below).
Be prepared to walk by some sketchy people, but the area is generally safe. For the price and proximity to the city, would stay again.
