I don’t understand why Inga writed this comment : she cancelled the reservation the very last minute before we had to meet for giving the keys.
Me (I also know the area well because I've been lived there for 3 years ^^) and (Hidden by Airbnb) Maps say that my apartment is exactly 11 min away from Bastille by walk. Moreover, all the previous voyageurs told me that the situation was very good and near it (you can check below).
It is a nice neighborhood with a market every morning except from Monday, there are some bars, restaurants, some groceries and bakeries ! A lot of families live there and even when I walk back to my apartement alone very late in the night, I was never disturbed in any kind.
I hope that all the next travelers will see that this comment is unrelevant and trust me, my place is very nice for a long week-end in Paris ! :)
