4th Arrondissement Pompidou Le Marais Apartment Rental Photos and Description
1 bedroom apartment, sleeps 3 in great comfort
Brand new apartment next to the elegant Place de Voges, perched on the 7th floor of a splendid Parisian building with an elevator. Luminous with stunning views of all the major monuments in Paris. The apartment has been recently finished with the highest quality furniture and modern amenities: washer, fridge, deep-freezer, micro-wave, boiler, coffee machine, hair-dryer and a fully equipped kitchen.
Speaks french, portuguese, italian, spanish, english
We just spent a week in the apartment and it was a great stay for 3 people. The view was amazing and were able to keep the windows open at all times (no air conditioning though). Many appliances were provided with all necessities such as a toaster, coffee and coffee maker, toilet paper, detergent for washing machine, hand soap, iron etc. There is an elevator going up to the 6th floor and had to walk to the 7th floor for the apartment. The tenants (only spoke french) were staying in the building as well and there was no noise nor a lot of people. Carlos, the manager (who was not present) had great email communication and extremely helpful for any information about the apartment. The location was ideal for a taste of Paris. Very close to the metro and tons of restaurants bustling all day and night. Easy access to everything from boutiques to grocery stores. We will for sure stay here next time we come to Paris and highly recommend it for anyone traveling to Paris!

Tourists without a Car,
Nice location near restaurants, pâtisseries, boutiques, churches, parks, etc. Bastille metro station just a few blocks away. Bastille street market amazing, especially Sunday. Rental agent was totally professional, impeccable English. View extraordinary. Kitchen well-equipped & clean.
I knew the flat would be compact, but failed to appreciate how the slanted ceilings would make it feel even smaller. Internet connection via ethernet cable had to be hooked to a laptop, was not wireless, so no wifi for our smart phones.
Two things broke on day 5 of our 10-day stay. One (the washer) was our fault, the other (elevator) was not. The process of trying to get them fixed was handled very poorly.
We first tried to contact the rental agent (turns out he was sick), then we called a phone # on the instruction sheet in the flat, getting a woman who I think is part-owner. At first she refused to speak English (flat is advertised "speaks English"). As I stumbled around in very basic French, she magically remembered English, yelling at me for interrupting her vacation. (I held my cell away from my ear & others in the room could hear every word.) She also yelled that I was going to pay for breaking her washing machine. Mind you, my security deposit exceeded the price of a new washer. She sent a woman over who spoke no English and told me to work it out with her. I tried using Google Translate, but the woman shrugged, telling me she didn't know how to use a computer.
No one serviced the washer until after we left. Even though it was repaired free (under warranty), we were still charged for removing the toilet. (The bathroom is so tiny that the washer was wedged in next to the toilet; a design flaw I shouldn't be charged for.)
The elevator was never repaired during our visit, tho we were repeatedly told someone would be out "the next day." Walking 8 flights of stairs got old fast. (Remember that in Paris the ground floor is not counted as the "first" floor.)
After our lease was up, my sister moved to another flat with other friends. She got a call that the washer had been fixed & our clothes could be picked up (when the washer broke, our clothes were stuck in the unit). The man who met her at the door, who we think was also a co-owner, shoved the clothes in her face and chewed her out about breaking the washing machine. There really was no reason for that, they had our deposit money.
My husband and I were very happy with our stay in the apartment. It was exactly as described on the site, and very comfortable for our two weeks in Paris. The view from both windows captured major Paris icons, and the accommodations inside met our needs for sleeping, eating, and--in my case--working and having conference calls via internet with the US (the connection was strong and it's a lot more fun working when you havea glass of wine and a great view!). The bed was comfortable, the kitchen was well-equipped, and the bathroom was functional. The location just steps from La Place de la Bastille made it very convenient for getting around Paris, and the neighborhood had many very good restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend this apartment to others.
The location was excellent.The apartment was clean and had all the facilities needed for a perfect stay. The layout enabled us to relax after tiring days exploring such a wonderful city.We were made very welcome and thoroughly enjoyed our visit.
This is a afantastic apartment with everything you'll ever need. A cosy apartment that is great to put your feet up in after walking around Paris all day. Great views from the windows, including the Eiffel Tower, Notre Damn, La Defense the list goes on!!
Clean and well presented (everything is brand new) and the owner gives a great overview of Paris, a little bit of history and some tips of how to get around and where to go to eat. He allows you to use his wireless internet if you've got a wireless device. Great chap and really helpful. Makes you feel very welcome.
There is no TV but to be honest, you don't travel to Paris to watch TV!!! There is a stereo so you can plug you MP3 player in or listen to the collection of CD's that are there.The metro is 3 minutes walk away if that!! It is situated in a lively area but you can't hear a thing as it is about 3 - 5 minutes walk to the resturants and cafe bars.
To round up, this is a great apartment, great owner, fantastic location and a great base to reach all of the attractions. Non of them are more than a 10 minute metro ride away. You will not be dissapointed and if I go back to Paris, this will be the first place a try to book - without hesitation!!!
