Communication with Yael (the host) was excellent and she was very helpful (especially when we had some banking problems and needed assistance). The apartment was cozy, clean and comfortable. Perfect for a couple. The two of us enjoyed breakfast and quiet evenings on the private terrace. Great location for walking, using the metro, and renting the velib. Bakeries, shopping and good restaurants in the neighbourhood, too. Thank you, Yael - I hope we can come back someday! Sandi and Soren
The location of this apartment was perfect for our needs. A two minute walk to the metro, and great access to all of Paris. The apartment was small but very comfortable, with a great outdoor terrace, where we were able to enjoy some beautiful Paris evenings. Perfect for our 2 week stay in Paris.
I enjoyed my stay at this unit, it was secure and considering its position very quiet,close to shops, bars, restaurants and the metro. The only downfall is that its on the 5th floor with no lift.
This compact apartment was just right for my stay in Paris. The private terrace was an added bonus! As other reviewers have noted: you need to be willing to climb those steps.
Yael was helpful and lives in the building. An amazing boulangerie is just at the end of the block: such a treat to go in the morning and get a fresh croissant and baguette!
Two suggestions for change: dedicated WiFi (the free Wifi is quite weak), and a wine opener (it's Paris!).
Loved exploring this part of the city: Pere Lachaise Cemetary, the Promenade Plantee, the revitalized Bercy area, the beautiful Bois de Vincennes. Yet in walking distance of the traditional Paris sites.... though the Nation Metro stop is only ~2 blocks away.
Great price too and I got a notice from Trip Advisor in ~ 1 week for the refund of my deposit.

The apartment was nicer than I expected, well equipped, and in a good location convenient to the Place de la Nation metro stop. If there is a downside, it is on the fifth (sixth) floor. But it has a nice patio and was very quiet. I heard little noise from other residents in the building and no street noise. Yael is a very friendly and helpful landlord.
