Appearances are deceiving

As many previous guests have stated, the owner, Luc, is charming, helpful, polite and genuinely a nice person.
However, the description of the property itself is a bit misleading and although the photos show the place as being very charming there are some concerns. For instance, there is no private courtyard area, it is a public space and there are not really "two bedrooms", there is one double bed room (with very poor lighting) and a second room where there is a narrow "day-bed" and the television, stereo and phone. So if the room is being used as a "bedroom" there is no access to the TV and although it says there is a bathroom in this 2nd bedroom the shower is like a space capsule and would not suit anyone over 80 kilos (the same as the bed).
The main bedroom had a terrible cold draft coming from the fireplace and the heated towel rack never worked in the bathroom off this room. As we were staying in winter it was a very cold bedroom and bathroom.
The sitting area and "fireplace" are the best features and the kitchen has everything to make your stay comfortable. The apartment is in a fabulous location to get to anything and to use the metro. I'm sure the concerns I have raised will be addressed by the lovely owner however if you are booking this place to use 2 bedrooms the person (it can only be one person) using the 2nd room must be small.
Owner's Response: You are right Jennifer, my place in not the Taj Mahal you were expecting for you and your girl friend.
I have no answer but the others reviews including the last one written by four adults hosted after your stay
