Small but efficient
"Vilay's apartment is really as small as it looks, but the space is incredibly efficient, with every nook and cranny utilized to make it comfortable. The pull-down bed is quite fun, and very easy to move. You do need to use a step-ladder to climb in and out of it so not recommended if you're above a certain age...and there was some fear on the first night of falling off, but actually the bed is quite big and ample space. Apartment is very clean and there is now a white carpet/rug (bad idea for a rental) which we rolled up and put aside, much preferring the cleaner tile floor. The only complaint is the portable A/C - it's water compartment needs to be emptied every hour which means you can't run it through the night. It also takes a very strong person to lift it in order to empty it. Saw other complaints here about the fact the A/C is a portable model, but as Vilay explained, window units are not allowed in Paris so this is the only option (which we had no issue with). As long as you don't come when it's hot, the apartment is great - very very central and in a nice district to walk around. The metro is across the street (10 seconds) and there's a late night epicerie also across the street which was very useful."

"I'll mention the location first, since I think this may be the best location in Paris. Just a couple of blocks to Île de la Cité and Notre Dame, and another block's walk onto Île Saint-Louis. In the neighborhood around the apartment we found it an easy walk for groceries, wine and beer, the post office, and lots and lots of great restaurants and bars.
The apartment itself is as others have described. Clean, nicely decorated, and as roomy as you would expect for an old building in this location. Our group of 4 Americans used the 3 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms and almost every feature of the apartment.
The induction cooktop in the kitchen was easy to use, and a real pleasure with instant on/instant off heat. We had a hard time, however, using the combo microwave/convection oven. We never got the microwave to work, and only got the convection oven to come on after about 50 presses of the power button. The apartment has both a pod coffee maker and a drip coffee maker and we enjoyed those very much.
The 3rd bedroom is indeed just a small closet with a bed taking 95% of the floor space, but since you're only in there to sleep, the size isn't really a problem. It does have a window.
It's a bit of a climb up to the apartment from ground level, but if you're in decent physical shape it's not a problem at all. The self-check-in/check-out is nice, and if you carefully follow the instructions they send you, you won't have any problem getting in.
We needed to turn the heat on one of our days there (early May) and it worked fine. The apartment has lots of windows that open, so ventilation is not a problem. We had a wonderful stay in the apartment and would gladly stay there again!"

"This was recommended to us by friends and they were not wrong!
Eric's studio apartment is in the perfect location in Paris and he is a very considerate and courteous host. We were very comfortable during our 10 day stay and it was easy to get around using the metro and buses. We were completely satisfied and would definitely stay again if the opportunity arises."

"This apartment was everything we wanted and more...having the space to spread out for a week made all the difference to our enjoyment of Paris - our 10th visit, but our first stay in an apartment. From the comfy beds and sofas to the properly equipped kitchen, fabulous shower and great building security, we can't think of a thing that could be done to improve this place! We will definitely be back."
