Consider to look carefully at other's reviews. Every single feedback underestimate Astrid's apartments awesomeness. Trust me.
It's not only supa cute, cosy, homely and neat please to stay in the heart of Paris. It's also a state of the art to do it within 30 sq meters.
Being in the center of Paris is actually a huge deal. We haven't used metro for 3 days, since Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, Luxembourg Gardens and numerous other must visit places are within walking range. Oportunity to see Eiffel Tower in a daylight and during the night also quite a nice thing.
There are tons of nice cafes (incuding starbucks for hipsters), supermarkets (G20, franprix), wineshops (nicolas), fromagerie (rue de cler) around the corner. It's like everything that you will need on daily basis.
Also getting prepaid sim from Orange (nice 3G coverage) with data plan will help you to navigate through the city (500mb/20euro). Orange boutique placed next to Ecole Militaire metro station.

Had a great time in France, the walk is around 10-15mins to the Eiffel Tower max, but we walk slowly..!
A bit of trouble getting the keys from a neighbour at the start as it was raining and he was at work, so a small walk to collect, but he was very friendly indeed and always asked how we were in passing.
Astrid had obviously put a lot of thought and attention into the place, with it being immaculate when we arrived, the bathroom and toilet, kitchen and bedroom all very clean with neatly arranged and colourful towels.
One bonus that we were not expecting was the free WIFI...! this was actually quite fast and easy to connect to as well. Great.
We had an absolutely amazing time in France, and the location and quality of the flat, especially for the price we paid, most certainly added to this. I would highly recommend.
Just one thing to note is to be careful if you have any walking difficulties and mobilisation concerns, as there are a quite significant number of narrow stairs needed to climb to get to it. We didn't mind as the fitness was well needed...! but keep it in mind, if you have a lot of heavy luggage etc.
Conclusion: Ideal location, great host who is readily contactable, good price. Lots to do. Avoid if mobilisation concerns. A must for young students or professionals looking to get out to France asap.
Apartment was in a great location just a few minute walk from the Eiffel Tower. The metro station is about 5 blocks. The apartment is small but just like an Paris apartment and had the essentials. The kitchen has only basic necessities. Astrid was quick to get back with any questions. Upon arriving we met Phillipe at his store for the key which is a few blocks away. Definitely hard with luggage. He never told us the code to get in but Astrid picked up and helped us. After that everything was good. The apartment is on the top floor with lots of stairs, not for the non-athletic as you walk everywhere in Paris and the stairs are a challenge. All in all a great apartment for you money in a perfect location.
Astrid's apartment was well situated for us to begin our honeymoon adventure. Everything we needed was on the street or around the corner. The stairs were fun, and we definitely got used to them. Great location and a great hostess.
I'm very grateful Astrid for this flat and help. She very nice and kind woman!
Flat is not very big, but cozy and have all that people can need. For one-two peolpe is ideal! I very like. Thank you!

Astrid was a superb hostess! She responded to my emails very promptly and patiently answered all my questions about the flat. The place was exactly what I needed -- clean, big enough by Parisian standards, and perfectly located! I would definitely stay there again. Thanks, Astrid.
I would strongly recommend this apartment to anyone who would like to stay near to the city centre (and Eiffel Tower) for a good price. Astrid was an excellent host and everything worked as we agreed.
We would have easily given this 5 stars if not for the 5 flights of stairs and no elevator. Check in was a little tricky as we arrived late from the airport & needed to meet the house keeper Philippe for the key but was not able to find him. Astrid was very quick to reply our message though from out of town & we were able to get the keys from Philippe who was very nice. Location was great; literally you walk out the door and can see the Eiffel Tower across the street. Lots of shops & restaurants nearby and a Rick Steve's endorsed pizzeria around the corner. Bed was super comfortable; which was great in the cold weather we got. Kitchen had the bare necessities which was also good as we were able to make lots of hot tea to keep warm. Also as great as the heater is in the bathroom it isn't meant to be left on for too long as it will trip a breaker.
Only downside was the many flights of stairs which we didn't know about prior to our arrival and with 2 big luggages it was a challenge. But great location for the price. Astrid has an excellent selection of CDs too which made the stay even more enjoyable as we didn't have a tv to distract.
Kind and respectful of the house we highly recommend Astrid as a guest!
Astrid ist sehr freundlich, die Korrespondenz vor der Anreise lief prima. Leider haben wir nicht viel voneinander mitbekommen, da sie aufgrund einer Veranstaltung wenig Zeit bei uns verbracht hat. Als Gast ist sie uneingeschränkt zu empfehlen!
As always it was an absolute pleasure to welcome Astrid as a guest. She is always welcome back!
Astrid ist schon mehrfach bei mir zu Gast gewesen. Und sie ist ein sehr gern gesehener Gat. Astrid war - wie immer - freundlich und unkompliziert und hat das Zimmer blitzblank hinterlassen.
Vielen Dank, Du bist hier immer willkommen!
It was great to host Astrid! She is very kind! She respected the rules and left my apartment in perfect condition! Guest highly recommended!
Astrid is very friendly and kind, she is always welcome.
Astrid ist klasse!
Freundlich unklompliziert, sehr sauber und zuvorkommend.
Ich habe Astrid zwar nur ganz kurz kennengelernt, aber alles lief reibungslos ab, wir haben uns elektronisch und per Zettel bestens informiert gehalten. Meine Mama hat sich länger mit Astrid unterhalten und schwärmte mir gegenüber wie sympathisch sie ist. (Ganz mein erster Eindruck)
Offenbar gefiel es Astrid gut bei mir, denn sie ist nur einige Tage später zurückgekommen.
Astrid Du bist hier immer willkommen. Vielen Dank!
