I don't have enough good things to say about Didier and Le85. He is an incredibly warm, attentive host who is more than happy to help with anything you might need. There were a couple times we needed to make some last minute changes to reservations and Didier had us covered. He knows Paris like the back of his hand so you would be doing yourselves a disservice if you didn't ask him for a recommendation or a map.
We stayed in Chambre Eugenie - absolutely gorgeous room with plenty of space and a lovely terrace. The toilet is shared but it's literally one step outside of the second door of the room. There were people occupying the other room (Baudelaire) during our entire stay and this was never a problem.
It's a <5 minute walk to the Poissonnière station of the 7 Metro, a short walk to the Gare du Nord, and a 10-15 minute car ride to the Louvre, Le Palais Royal, and numerous other sites. If you're feeling adventurous, a leisurely stroll will get you to these places in about 30 minutes.
Thanks again for your hospitality, Didier. The next time we're in Paris, you can be sure we'll be staying with you!
