Hi, everybody. Just wanted to share my thoughts on this lovely spot...like most of Paris, the exterior exactly what you expect (lots of steps and a bit dark when you enter the building), but the apartment is simply perfect, especially for a couple. The apartment is charming and chic, the views are just perfect- you can peer into windows and see Paris life as it really is...The bed was super comfortable and perfect after long days of hitting les rues in search of all that is wonderful in Paris. The living room area is perfect and the kitchen is perfect for stowing all of your culinary pleasures.
Which leads me to the best part of the apartment- the location. The Marais is a lovely and cool area of Paris...think Nolita in New York. Great shopping, excellent food, and cool young vibe. The apartment is super close to the Place des Vosges, and the metro is around the corner. Also around the corner is the very fab Merci, a new concept store that gives Colette a run for its euros. There is also a good supermarket on the corner for wine and cheese runs and anything else you may need. Also a great tabac on the corner (Le Diplomat) for a quick coffee in the am.
All in all, a great experience in a charming setting. Make sure your wireless works there though...may want to check beforehand as mine didn't. I adored the neighborhood and the apartment- nice and quiet at night too when you need to just pass out after a long day. Also felt very safe in the building and the neighborhood- not an ounce of worry there. A lovely spot to lay your head in Paris. Lots of closet space too if your are an overpacker like me. Have fun! Highly recommend.
