As mentioned by everyone else, Didier is a great host. We stayed in the larger room for 4 nights in September and had a wonderful time. The apartment and rooms are very attractively decorated, and the location is very good. We were somewhat concerned when we booked this that we were staying too far from the touristy areas of the city, however the apartment is located on the same block as a metro line 7 stop, so it's very easy to get to all the sites. We also found the proximity to the Nord and Est stations very useful - maybe a 10 min walk in a nearly straight line to both. We were never out much past midnight but the neighborhood seemed very safe and has lots of dining options. Didier provided great conversation in the mornings while serving us breakfast, and also had some nice walking tours that took us through interesting streets on the way to Sacre Coeur and back. We appreciated the large bed (not two twins pushed together). The only possible drawback for some might be that the toilet is located outside the room and is shared between both guest rooms, but there was never any waiting and Didier seemed to clean the room several times a day. I would not hesitate to stay here again or recommend to friends - the amount of space and quality of service was excellent, especially given the price of the room.
