The space

Cozy, quiet studio with view onto its own private, planted terrace.

Located in downtown Paris in the 11th arrondissement all Paris is easily accessible by metro (Ménilmontant, Père Lachaise, St Maur stations), bus (96, 69 lines), bicycle (Velib) or walking.
+ Nearby tourist sites are Père Lachaise Cemetery (Jim Morrison!), Bastille, trendy Oberkampf (100+ restaurants/bars within a 15 minute walk).
+ Studio has view on its own garden with table/chairs for outdoor picnic with light and electric plug for your computer. Light proof curtains if you just flew in from Oz :)
+ Well equipped kitchen with fridge/freezer, microwave, induction hob and extraction fan, toaster, boiler, expresso maker, ample storage, lots of food to get you started and a Franprix market a 3 minute walk.
+ Tiled bathroom with large walk-in shower and good pressure.
+ Real bed, not foldout, very comfortable with good reading lights. Large closet with safe.

Even Better...
+ FREE TELEPHONING to over a hundred countries like North America, Australia, China etc) Yes, FREE. Not sure how but it works. Not to cell phones outside North America however.
+ High speed wi-fi, books etc.
+ Air-conditioning, heating, indoor/outdoor thermometer, street parking.
+ Rates cited are weekly but are reduced for longer stays or increased for less than a week.
+ Linens are provided by Bill but guests are expected to clean the studio at departure (not the linens!!!) because we live 2 hours out in the country.
+ Studio was completely renovated in 2010. It is about 22m2 (250ft) for the apartment and 11m2 (13ft) for the patio. Interior is painted white with photos by Cartier-Bresson. Note that I am a photographer and took the interiors myself with a 17mm wide angle lens which, like the Airbnb official photos, makes the apartment look a bit more spacious than it is in reality.

Bill's studio apartment was cute, spacious, and cozy, and with all the necessary amenities. It's in a great location, away from the expensive touristy parts, and walking distance to plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants. The 2 metro stations, Ménilmontant and Rue Saint-Maur are r…

Bill is a great host, who provides a lot of information about the neighborhood of the flat. The best part of our stay was the location--close to multiple metro and bus stops, we could get to anywhere in the city in a few minutes! It's a great value, and we recommend it.

I really liked the room layout. The closet space was very good for a long term stayer to unpack and unwind. I spent a great 4 weeks there. The internet worked well. The location had a lot of food options and was easy to walk back at night from most places. A good little pad in Pa…
