A friend and I stayed at the studio for just over a week for a girls trip to paris, and it exceeded our expectations. The size was exactly as it looks on the pictures; enough room for two people to eat, sleep and shower in. The balcony was perfect for drinking wine whilst enjoying the sunset in paris. Although there was no dining room table, we had no issue sitting on the floor and eating our dinner, or by the outside table, and the kitchen was complete with full amenities. There was also both a fan and a heater.
The landlord and his daughter live just downstairs and was more than happy to help us with any requests, as well as carrying our suitcases upstairs (there is no lift, and the studio is situated on the 4th floor).
The only issues we encountered were that there was only one proper towel and no cover for the duvet (meaning we slept with a sheet as we did not want to sleep with a duvet without cover). Also, the wifi was very weak and temperamental. Other than that, the studio was very clean and homely and spacious, and all we were looking for.
The area was ideal for us as tourists, as it is very close to a metro, as well as walking distance to everywhere. It took us around half an hour to walk to both Notre Dame, the Louvre, Le Marais and Montmartre. The only thing to watch out for are the surrounding streets, where 'street workers' tend to hang around in the daytime, and has a lot of 'peep show' bars and 'love shops'. But at night the area was fun and felt safe enough to go out to bars and restaurants!
All in all, we loved our stay and were very, very sad to leave the beautiful apartment. In my opinion, it is a bargain for how close it is to everything and how clean and well-kept the studio is. We would definitely stay there again if we were to return to Paris.

The apartment is on the 6th floor, with a spiral staircase, with no elevator. All the necessary electrical appliances are available and are fully functional, it is quite comfortable for a short stay. Stefan lives on the floor below, and can always help when needed. The neighborhood is in a convenient location and absolutely safe. Nearby there are many grocery stores, cafes, metro station, bus stops and tourist bus OpenTour. It's walking distance to the Louvre,Ile de la Cite and Opera Garnier. Overall, it's a cozy and clean apartment large enough for two people.
