three of us stayed at caroline's place in may. the pictures online were of a modern looking, clean, loft studio, with hardwood floors and a new looking bathroom. it was exactly as advertised. a very cool space.
it was unseasonably hot in paris the first few days, and there was a portable air conditioner, but i didnt take the time to hook it up. once the windows were open, and the fan on, it was fine. also, the skylight in the loft bedroom gave a nice breeze in addition to amazing views of paris. the apartment was very clean. it was just big enough for three adults and all our baggage, but would be perfect for two.
the area is vibrant and happening at all hours day or night. there are bars and restaurants literally right outside the front entrance to the apartment which is on a cobblestone lane right at the corner of a very lively street. it is very walkable to many interesting sites as well, and also a few minutes walk to a metro. after spending a week going around paris, i dont't think i would stay anywhere else, but in this area.
finally, communication with caroline was excellent. check in instructions were easy. i was surprized at how quickly she responded to any questions i may have had, and also gave me a few suggestions about places to check out when i asked her. also gave me a referral for a driver.
a great stay in paris!
