We stayed at the Studio apartment near Notre Dame for three days, which is in a great location, opposite a park (Place Rene Viviani), just a minute away from Notre Dame. Ghislain was a gracious host, gave us the key and took our suitcases to the studio for us, so we could explore Paris before going to the studio at midday.
The studio is up three flights of narrow, spiral stairs (which may be a problem for people with mobility issues) but we found them OK. The studio is modern and clean with an excellent, comfortable bed. The space is comfortable for two people, a small bathroom and shower, but modern and well-equipped with heated towel rack, shampoo, shower gel, cottonbuds, etc.
The window overlooks the apartment opposite, and the window when open has no screen, which meant that when the window was open, the studio lacked privacy. We needed to sleep with the window open because it was very warm; and without air-conditioning, it would be extremely hot and stuffy in summer. There was also only a quilt on the bed, which was a little hot for such warm weather. However, it was quiet at night even with the window open (because it is set back off the road) and we slept well.
Breakfast was provided for the first day (a baguette with butter and jam), but there were no fresh supplies after the first day. The sheets and towels were not changed either, but we didn't mind because it meant that we had the place completely to ourselves for the three days. Other supplies were tea and coffee, oil and vinegar, kettle, iron, umbrella, flat-screen TV and free wifi.
Overall, it was a good place to stay in the heart of Paris, and reasonable value at 110 euro per night.
