I wanted to write this review as I was so nervous to rent from someone I had never met, and was afraid that this place would not live up to its reviews/pics, etc. As a woman travelling alone, I was also concerned about safety. Put your fears to rest: this is a great place to rent. The apartment was very clean and convenient. Jose met me at a pre-arranged time and showed me how to use the appliances, and Thomas was very accommodating in answering questions beforehand. When I returned home, people couldn't believe how close I was to Notre Dame, and within walking distance to so many great restaurants and sights. Should I be lucky enough to return to Paris, I would not hesitate to rent here again, and have actually suggested the apartment above to a friend who is travelling there next year.
