An "oldy but goody" studio appartment under the roofs of Paris, ideally located in a well-connected quiet neiborhood. Careful: it's 6th floor NO LIFT.

In general, the place looks old and has not been painted in a while: we're saving for that. It is not a palace, but it is clean, comfortable, quiet and very well located. It is true parisien old-style, under the rooftops. If you like luxury and everything brand-new, this is not the place.
Full apartment, once you've made it to the 6th (and last) floor of the building.
Wifi internet, of course.
The main queen-size bed is on top of the mezzanine, and there is a potential double bed underneath (folding couch, very comfortable). There is Wifi internet, a land line and a DVD player. The kitchen is small, with basic equipment. The bathroom is normal size, with bathtub. Toilet is separated and can be a little tight, because it is very small. I don't have a laundry machine, but there is a laundromat two blocks away.
Kapcsolat a vendégekkel
Usually I'm not there when I have guests, so there is no real interaction, except upon arrival when I make myself available to explain whatever is needed and answer any questions, including related to the city, transportation, landmarks, visits, etc.

Again, this is a 6th floor with NO lift/elevator. You may want to keep that in mind when packing your luggage.
I expect people to behave as if they were in their friends' home, which means better than in their own. The place is small and old, but I live there comfortably and quietly. Three very important things: do not go through my things and respect the neighbors' rest. Also, no parties and no visitors, please. And last but not least, absolutely NO smoking.

Silence and quiet are, indeed, a primary value to me, as respect and friendliness.
I have been traveling all over the world since my apartment in Paris burned down (yes, the one that was listed here) - I took that tragedy as a sign that I had to move on... and been moving on ever since!
My favorite trips so far have been to Baja California (Mexico), Russia and New Orleans -- expecting many more to come!
My motto is Ambulo ergo sum, which can translate "I travel, therefore I am" -- it was Descartes' friend, another philosopher, who, wanting to mock his famous "Cogito ergo sum" invented it, arguing that when you are on the move, you are existing as well.
