“Excellent location in heart of Paris”

Metro [two], shops, restaurants, the Seine & isle St Louis ... all walkable from this cute apartment.
Stayed a week. Weather was perfect so it was OK that we did not have A/C.
Fans provided for warm days are handy as "white noise" at night & in early a.m.
Nearby Metro station [Les Halles] is being renovated/ugraded so construction started fairly early in the a.m.. Closed the windows, turned on the fans & it was OK.
By North American standards, this apt. is not large & certainly needs some work. But 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms in this location - great! A Parisian friend visited & claimed it was "luxury" by Parisian standards.
Very old building that has been retrofitted to squeeze in the kitchenette, the tiny elevator and the bathrooms.
Some things could be upgraded a bit to make it MUCH nicer. Examples: the shower curtain in one bathroom dragged into the tub several inches - it would be simple cut it off or buy a new one or raise the rod! [Ugly dark brown - by a fresh new white one :)
The sole plate of the iron was dirty; left a black mark on a white shirt [removeable but irritating]
The kitchen was VERY poorly made - an expensive fix, of course but needs doing. With several minor fixes [cosmetic things] and a major kitchen fix for a few thousand, this apartment could rent for much more.
The kitchen had all we needed [we didn't cook!] -- including a tiny washing machine [no dryer]. Found drying racks in bedroom closet & the clothing dried overnight [again, because we had perfect weather!]
The service from Lydia was all good; very responsive to all emails & she delivered the fans to us

“Good value for the price”

I took a chance booking a rental with no AC in Paris in the summer . . . Unfortunately we arrived during a 100 degree heat wave! Not the fault of the apartment, but it was sweltering, even the breeze up on the 5th floor was sweltering. Luckily after the first day it cooled down to the high 80's, which was very tolerable in the evenings with the lovely breeze the apartment gets. If you're there during summer, you'll definitely want the windows open, so I recommend a white noise machine (or phone app) for sleeping since the street is very lively at all hours.

That liveliness is due to the fun and eclectic neighborhood the apartment is in, definitely recommend it as a central location for exploring Paris. Right outside the Chatelet-Les Halles metro stop, walking distance to Ile de Cite, Louvre, etc. Its not as upscale a location as St Germain des Pres, where we stayed at the end of our trip, but a great variety of food and shops in this area.

The apartment itself was much more spacious than I expected. Street side bedroom has a bath/shower combo and sink, back side bedroom has a shower/sink, the WC (small toilet room) is right as you enter the front door adjacent to the kitchen. Water pressure was perfect, and a combo washer/dryer was very convenient. The only drawback was that the cleaning was less than ideal when we arrived, the bathrooms look like they need a thorough cleaning and the floors weren't well vacuumed, but nothing we couldn't work with.

All in all, a good value for the price, and I would consider it again for a future Paris trip (although maybe in the spring instead of summer?!).

Awesome location within walking distance of Louvre, Notre Dame, Seine River and multiple outdoor eateries. Had a fabulous time in Paris . We were so lucky to find the days we wanted available. We would highly recommend. Old building with small elevator that only held two people. Showers worked well. Very cozy feeling. Would definitely recommend.
