'La Table du Roi' ('The Kings's Table) is a one bedroom slice of old world charm, destined to please those looking for luxury and elegance. On the first floor (European) of a 17th-century building on rue du Roi de Sicile in the heart of Le Marais (4th arrondissement), it is steps from rue de Rivoli, rue Vieille du Temple, the Hôtel de Ville, Place de la Bastille, the River Seine and everything that Le Marais has to offer.
Newly renovated by our Interior Architect, Martine di Matteo, it has a full bedroom with three openings to the living room (two French pocket doors and even an antique window!). The bed is adorned by a hand-painted mural made especially for the apartment. The doors and windows close and drapes can be lowered for complete privacy in the bedroom. A closet the length of one wall has been especially created to fit the space and house all your belongings.
The center apartment wall is open, exposing the original 17th-century beams to give visual space to the living room and kitchen, both having lots of light from the 3.5 meter-high windows. Lavish drapery adds to the elegant decor.
The signature of the entire apartment is a table that has been cleverly carved around the old beams so that a dining table serves the living room and a breakfast nook serves the kitchen! A leaf can be added to the table to elongate it so that four can be seated comfortably on the living room side. We venture to say that no other apartment in Paris can claim such a unique table...hence 'La Table du Roi!'
At the other side of the living room is an extending desk, constructed to create a spacious work corner next to the window. A luxurious sofa bed opens to sleep another two guests comfortably.
The open kitchen is fully equipped to handle even the most elaborate gourmet meal and includes an oven, two-burner stove, microwave, refrigerator and washer/dryer combination machine.
The bath, handy to the entrance and facing the bedroom, has windows across the top to allow lots of light. It is beautifully equipped, with a state-of-the-art rainfall showerhead, heated towel rack, clothes drying rack and thick luxurious towels.
The apartment's decor says '17th-century Paris,' but modern technology has been unobtrusively incorporated to meet your needs. It is equipped with a portable air conditioner for the warmest seasons along with high-speed Internet, flat-screen TV, multi-zone DVD player, and free(!) long distance phone service to 70 countries.
Considering the size of the apartment, every inch has been brilliantly used to make for a luxurious stay in the City of Light. No detail has been spared for comfort for up to four guests.
