Oct 2017: Located next to a university (Diderot), but no problems with safety or student activities; secure building. Good restaurants in the area (Indiana Grill; if homesick, there's a Subway and a Starbucks; grocery store Monoprix next to metro). No big attractions in walking distance, but five minute walk to Bibliotheque Francois Mitterand Metro stn. So, within 20 min walk/ride of Eiffel Tower / Louvre etc. Someone lives in the apartment normally, so you have to be careful to keep your stuff separated from theirs. Bed comfort so-so. Need cash at checkin! You have to pay 72 euros cash for sheets and something else, which I found weird, but I knew about it ahead of time. Also, need 300 euros cash deposit. Then, I got back the 300 euros cash right before stepping on a plane to Colorado, which does me no good. But, Alan was an excellent rep for the unit. Always responded to my questions and met us promptly. PS Wifi worked well.
