The apartment is overlooking a plaza next to the Jussieu university campus (3rd floor, no elevator). It is at the building's angle (has 6 tall windows) and the ceiling is very high (3 meters, or 10 feet).

The space

Please feel free to read the reviews, but if you'd like to save yourself some time, here's an honest summary:

Pros:
* Extremely well located, literally 30 second walk to subway station, awesome & safe neighborhood
* Very bright and comfortable
* Everything setup to make your stay easy & convenient
* Very responsive and experienced (since 2014) host

Cons:
* Slight subway noise (if you are *very* sensitive to noise -- but no guests have found it an issue so far, read below if you're concerned)
* 3rd floor (US 4th floor), no elevator

The metro station is just a few feet from the apartment. The location is a very student-friendly one, with the large "Jussieu" campus right next to it.

Everything is set up for you to feel at home (large flat TV, internet, bidet toilet seat, whole-apartment sound system, king size bed, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, washer, blender, toaster, a Chromecast device, game consoles). The kitchen has a (small-ish) fridge, a gas stove with two burners and an oven that can do microwave and standard baking.

Guest access

Entire apartment. Nothing is shared with anyone.

Other things to note

*Please note* there is a subway air vent on the street just below the apartment, which creates noise outside each time a train arrives. Now the apartment has very thick windows, and of course the metro doesn't run during the night. So many people may not actually notice it at all, feel free to read the reviews. However, if your sleep is very light, this may inconvenience you. Again I don't want to make too much of a big deal out of this, but I'd rather be transparent and upfront rather than have guests be surprised.

A quick word about expectations: AirBnB apartments are not hotels. I consider myself a generous host, I try my best to be helpful and always available, but I also expect you to be respectful. If you book my apartment:

* Of course you can expect that fresh sheets and towels will be provided, but do not expect that your sheets will be changed mid-stay, and you are not free to liberally draw towels from the stash I store in the apartment.

* Check-in time is after 4 PM and check-out time is before 11 AM. I will try my best to accommodate an early check-in or late check-out if you tell me in advance, but there is no guarantee.

* You are expected to leave the apartment as you found it. In particular, please replenish what you use up (shampoo, detergent, toilet paper, drinks you may find in the fridge, etc.).

* The apartment will be cleaned up before your arrival, but you should not expect the same level of spotlessness as in a 5-star hotel. Bed sheets may not have been flawlessly ironed. Expect something similar as your own apartment.

If any of this sounds questionable to you, you might not have the best experience in my apartment.

Second time staying in Manu's apartment. This time just as great as the first. Perfect location right next to two metro lines. Quiet building, fantastic neighbourhood. Apartment has everything you need, and is exactly as described and displayed in the photos. Manu is the best host. Always available to answer questions. We will stay here again and again and again.....

Everything was very easy, clear and very good communication about how to let ourselves in, and helpful tips and other info on things nearby once we were inside. Excellent location, walking distance (3 mins) to Ile St Louis. We loved staying here.

Manu is a wonderful host. Excellent instructions regarding access to the apartment. The apartment is exactly as described in the listing. Fully equipped kitchen, comfortable bed, central heating if needed, good bathroom area, and laundry washing facilities. The apartment was also very clean and tidy on our arrival. What more could we want! The area is perfect for a Paris holiday. Super close to everything you could possibly need yet just far enough away away from the chaotic tourist areas to feel relaxed. The Apartment far surpassed our expectations. This is our idea of the perfect apartment for a Paris holiday. We didn't need to call on Manu during our stay, but when there was the possibility of a flight problem on our last day, Manu was willing to be flexible with our leaving time. We had a great three weeks in and around Paris, made even better by staying in Manu's apartment.

Great location from which to explore Paris! Metro station is outside the building's front door, the apartment is one block from the Seine River, Carrefour is around the corner. I highly recommend Manu's apartment!

I spent in Manu's flat 2 weeks. I have never seen before flat that is such well prepared to welcome guests. Manu is putting a lot of effort to make stay of his guests maximally comfortable. Moreover, the location of the flat is one of the best that one can find in Paris.

This is the place to stay. Manu is an incredible host, his house is full of hints and is very tidy. Everything as described, you don't need anything else, this place has it all. The only drawback is that there's no elevator in case you carry heavy luggage, however that's the only one. Everything else has been fantastic like the city itself. Thank you, we will gladly return some day.

I grew up in Paris, and started travelling a lot a few years ago. You can find out much more info about me by just searching for "Manu Cornet" in your favorite search engine. As a guest, I like to keep places clean and tidy. I don't smoke and have no pets.
