CHARMING PARIS APARTMENT

  • 5 of 5
The apartment was just as pictured and described on the website. It was clean and ready for our arrival. The location is within walking distance to the Seine River, Notre Dame Cathedral, the Louvre, and many other cathedrals and museums, as well as local markets and cafes. The owner Yael responded immediately to our questions and requests, and was delightful to meet in person. The free WiFi was a huge benefit to us. I would recommend this apartment to anyone wishing to have a true Parisian experience.

GREAT PLACE IN A GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent two weeks in this charming apartment. The location is great and the apartment was well appointed and roomy. It was great having the bedroom upstairs because it made the apartment feel even bigger. It's located on a quiet street with good grocery stores in walking distance. I had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this apartment. Oh, and Yael, the manager, was very helpful and made some good suggestions.

NOT THE SAME APT., BUT A GREAT REPLACEMENT!

  • 5 of 5
We contracted to stay in this room, but one week before our departure, I received a phone call from the manager saying that due to a mistake, the room was already booked. I was shocked but the manager assured me that she had two other newly renovated apartments in the same building that she would keep available for me to choose from.

When we arrived, everything was as she had said and we agreed to take the lovely room on the 4th floor facing the interior courtyard (the other was smaller, on the 1st floor and faced the street). She was very friendly, showed us how to operate everything, and provided two keys, an oscillating fan, and a list of places where we could find essentials: groceries, restaurants, laundromat, etc.

The apartment was functionally equivalent to our original. A short vestibule had entry to the small bathroom (no tub; at 6'1" I felt cramped in the shower) and a small desk at a window (the only place in the apt. w/ good wi-fi). The main room was large enough, very clean, nicely appointed, had a very comfortable queen-sized bed with nice linens, a small dining table, a short sofa, and the kitchenette. The extra bed for our 13 yr. old was up a steep set of stairs to a small attic room with a door, a full-sized bed and a small window. The height and steepness of the stairs made us a little uneasy about the possibility of a night-time accident. Two large windows opened to the charming courtyard, and we left them open most of the time for the cool breezes.

The location is very nice: the narrow street had a little auto and motorcycle traffic, and had a comforting amount of foot traffic (locals, families) even through dusk (22h00-23h00). 2 Metro, 2 Velib stations, bus route 69 nearby. 3 nearby groceries, lots of eating options: we liked Crep Story on Rue Rambuteau, several places in the area near the Pompidou Centre, and a restaurant above the Arts et Metiers Metro. Lots of boulangeries and patisseries for street food. The walk to Place des Vosges was very enjoyable. The Hotel de Ville and Notre Dame was in our walkable neighborhood.

Over our 7 night stay we came to feel quite at home in this apartment. We cooked breakfast one morning and kept a few simple things in the refrigerator and pantry, and used the modern toaster and dishwasher - everything worked perfectly. The 4 flights of stairs were a bit of an annoyance, but we soon became accustomed to them. Highly recommended for all who can do the stairs! We would stay here again!

PERFECT SPOT

  • 5 of 5
This is the place to stay in Paris! We loved the location in Marais district, close to metro and everything walkable nearby, restaurants and grocery, etc.
The apartment is huge, newly remodeled, clean and sleek! The owners were so welcoming and when I asked if there was a hair dryer, she went out and purchased a new one for me to use there-so nice!
I would definitely recommend this apt and look forward to coming back again...

Spacious and beautiful appartament located in the city center, next to Pompidou museum or Notre Damme cathedral. The Marais district is a perfect area to stay in Paris. We were for 5 days and we are looking forward to come back again.
Totally recomendable.

There are just so many around the apartment !
Car: not necessary

Building history: originally founded in the 15th century the Hostel of the Bear and the Lion, was converted into a mansion during the 16th century by the Lords of Rocquencourt, then in the 17th century it was the house of King Henry IV intend-ant of finances, ... also there's engraved on the facade a vertical declining sundial of the afternoon. This is probably the oldest dated sundial in the City of Paris: The year 1623 is inscribed in good condition and it is visible from the courtyard of the building.

Today the Marais is a trendy area in Paris known for its nightlife, restaurants, theaters, cafés, bars & terraces !

It is now also famous for the fashion boutiques on rue des Francs Bourgeois, art galleries, interior design and antics furnishing stores.

It is close to many places like the Beaubourg/Pompidou center and the Halles (2 minutes walk), Notre Dame Cathedral in the historic Ile de la Cité (10 minutes walk), place des Vosges (10 minutes walk), the famous Louvre museum is about 20 minutes walk by the Rue de Rivoli ....
