We stayed here for a week following a group tour in Paris. Everything was exactly as described in the listing. The communication from the owner prior to arrival was reassuring and helpful. The location near the Arc de Triomphe meant that we had easy access to the metro, the RER, buses, and AirFrance les cars to the airport. The highlight was being able to pop my head out of the skylight each night to watch the Eiffel Tower sparkle. The stairs to the loft are steep, but if you're a boater you know to treat them as a ladder when descending. They are part of the "Titanic style" referenced in the listing as is the cute porthole in the bathroom door. This is definitely a great alternative to staying in a hotel for a week.
