Joanna met me just outside the apartment, gave me a thorough tour of the apartment and the surrounding neighborhood. She even left a guide to help me get around Paris. The apartment is exactly as I expected with laundry, good wifi, comfortable sleeping, and quiet in the evenings. The loft bed allows the space to not feel cramped at all if you have more than 2 people. That is not to say the neighborhood was not always active, but the apartment faces an inner courtyard so I never heard any street sounds, even during the world cup! Even my French friends complimented me on this the great location, because it is a 20 minute walk or two metro stops from the Louvre. Close to the 1 metro line at hôtel de ville, so by metro you can get to most of the major tourist destination. Furthermore, it right next to the Marais, which has fantastic food, shopping, beautiful buildings, and pleasant gardens. I can only hope to stay here again when I visit Paris.
We had a great time staying at Joanna's studio. She was very welcoming and helpful with questions we had about what was in the local area. She was on time and easy to get a hold of via text message. For those that know what Le Marais is, it's really in the middle of it all. We like a night life, and were able to walk to each place in just a few minutes. The Metro lines and RER are very close as well as a lot of the normal tourist places one would want to see while visiting Paris. There's a couple of supermarkets within just a few blocks which was really convenient. A big plus was having the washer dryer. We stayed 8 nights and had another 8 nights left in France so it was great to be able to wash our clothes just before we left and not needing to pack so many clothes in our bags. I only gave her 4/5 stars because the stove didn't seem to be working and the bed was a little scary if you slept on the side as there isn't much of a rail to protect you from falling. But that shouldn't persuade anyone from this studio. I would hope she could add 1 or two more posts to the railing near the bed to make everyone feel safe. If we ever came back to Paris and Joanna had this studio available, I would choose it again if she let us. Thanks Joanna!
