Passionné d'art, et Parisien depuis quelques années, je serais ravi de vous parler de la plus belle ville du monde, et surtout de mon quartier, autour d'un bon verre !

This was our second time to stay with Doudou in 2 years and so it felt like a "homecoming". He had added more artworks, new speakers, and AppleTV connectivity. Upon arrival, he helped us connect all our Apple devices to his network and if you're a techie you would really appreciate this. The apartment is very clean, tasteful, comfortable and the location is fantastic. We stayed for only two nights this trip. On our first night we actually ate in. There is a fruit vendor, meat vendor that sells a very good chicken rotisserie with potatoes roasted in chicken fat, cheese and wine from Carrefours ... all in the same street. As I said, the location is so perfect. Doudou is a perfect host and I highly recommend his apartment - we're so lucky to have stayed here again.
Had a very good stay at Doudou's place. Great location close to Saint Germain; the apartment is very comfortable and well furnished. Unfortunately didn't get to meet Doudou because he was out of town but checkin was still easy and he was very accommodating with a late checkout for us. Recommended.
I had a wonderful stay at Doudou's apartment. The location was perfect, close to the metro lines and easily walkable to many of the sites with lots of restaurants/cafes/shopping closeby. The apartment was very modern and all the amenities were great and it was always very quite. Doudou was very responsive and able to answer any questions I had leading up to my stay. I would definitely recommend his place to anyone.

Simply put, Doudou and his place are fantastic. I would recommend using his place. You'd be hard-pressed to beat the location and the comfort of his place when compared to any other hotel in the area.
We arrived via the Eurostar late at night and Doudou kindly had welcoming gifts of Wine and Desert at 11pm!!! The restaurant selection within 40 meters of his house is unbeatable. Given the split-level, one person can sleep to their hearts content in sheets that are FAR superior in quality to most 5* hotels while the other person can relax upstairs.
I don't think any good review is without positive feedback. My only feedback/advice for future airbnb'ers would be:
a) Doudou seemed to only have one key, and I unfortunately forgot to leave it hidden outside when we left. This caused me stress after I left, as he's such a good guy, and I didn't like the idea of locking him out of his own place (sorry Doudou! (get another key:)), and
b) his cleaning lady came in the day after we arrived and he kindly suggested we might want to go out for the two hours in the afternoon while she cleaned up. The fact is, the place was SPOTLESS, and my girlfriend just flew 30 hours from New Zealand in the previous couple of days, so, given we were there for only four days, I think we would have preferred an un-interrupted stay (we had to leave the key hidden for her as well). As you can see, these are EXTREMELY SMALL things.
There's a great grocery store downstairs (10 meters from his exit) and despite being in the "centre" of things, it was extremely quiet at night.
Thank YOU Doudou for opening up your home, and I hope you enjoyed the "Thank You" Chocolates!!!

The apartment was lovely -- beautifully furnished, clean and comfortable. The bed was luxurious, and we slept very well. Doudou could not meet us in person, but he made us feel welcome via email beforehand and checked in after we arrived to make sure we had everything we needed (we did!).
The location was FANTASTIC, right in the thick of the 6th, around the corner from the famous writers' joints (Deux Magots, Lipp, Cafe Flore) and a stone's throw from incredible restaurants, macaroons and chocolate, groceries, art and books, shopping. The Seine and the Luxemborg were both an easy walk away. Even though it's on a busy street, the windows are new and very nice, and the apartment was quiet when they were closed.
We've just spent some lovely days in Doudous place! The appartment was more than we expected and we surely couldn't have been more in the heart of Paris! St. Germain is such a nice arrondissement that you can easily spent your time just walking around. Additionally, we can entirely refer to what the former visitors already wrote in their statements: Doudou was a very welcoming and supporting host, answering any kind of question immediately. We also really enjoyed (and tested!) the great tips he gave us on what to visit and where to go for dinner. We would have loved to stay longer...
Location, location, location. Could not be in a better place in the middle of St. Germain. Doudou is a great host.
For Paris standards the space is big and confortable, not noisy at all as some people mention as a con in st germain area. Location and convenience make up for little things on the apartment that end of day were not important.
The apartment has a perfect location - a wonderful bakery on the corner, a grocery store that is less than a 1 minute walk, and lots of great restaurants nearby. There are even two metro stations within a 5-minute walk. It is situated so a visitor can easily explore Paris.
The apartment is exactly as pictured in Airbnb. Windows allow for good ventilation. The owner, spent about 45 minutes showing me everything in the apartment. He also contacted me several times via email to ensure that I was happy with everything. Overall it was an enjoyable stay.
