Mathi was extremely easy to communicate with and responded quickly to my inquiries. Her studio is just a few steps away from the métro stop of Tolbiac and about five minutes walk away from Place d'Italie, where lots of métro lines interstect, so all in all extremely well located and in a neighbourhood I love. The studio itself is quite nice, small but with two wonderfully big windows with a lovely view over the 13e. It was, however, terribly dirty upon my arrival. The sheets were full of hair and crumbs, there were stains on the pillows, a layer of dust and dirt covered the floor, the bathtub definitely wasn't clean and there was no toilet paper nor were there any towels to be seen.
I contacted Mathi. After apologizing for not being able to do anything about the situation since she was out of town and explaining something about a cleaning lady not having shown up, she promised to refund the cleaning fee (which I have yet to receive) and pointed out where I could find fresh towels and sheets. There were however no clean pillow covers so I had to wrap a towel around one of the pillows to be able to sleep on it.
If cleaned and tidied up a bit better, this could be a wonderful studio to rent. Given the current state of it, however, I cannot in good conscience say that I enjoyed my stay.
