The Pompidou Escape: stylish, quiet and bright in city center for 2-4 people

Bedrooms 1
Space 280 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 4 nights


About the property

1 bedroom, 1 living room with fully equipped kitchen in corner, 1 full bathroom

Ideally located in the heart of the Marais district, a couple of steps away from the Pompidou Center and a 12 min. walk from Notre Dame.

Location on the 6th floor (with small 2-people elevator) gives great view of the Pompidou Center, exceptional natural lighting, and quietness.

The Pompidou Escape has very modern designer furniture and was recently fully renovated. The owners provide sheets, towels, shampoo, shower gel and soap.

The decor reflects the owners' passion for Tango. Tango aficionados will appreciate the Pompidou Escape's proximity to 2 famous Parisian Tango studios.

With 1 separate bedroom and a living room with corner kitchen, the apartment is 26 sqmt and ideal for 2 people. It can accommodate 4 as it has a separate folding couch in the living room, but may seem small for 4 if you are expecting a large apartment.

Our style: We (the owners of this apartment) are a cosmopolitan couple who have lived and studied in many countries (France, Italy, Russia, Lebanon and the United States). We have taken extreme care in selecting, furnishing and decorating this apartment ensuring we would feel comfortable and enjoy it. Our style is modern and minimalistic and is colored by our passion for Tango dancing. We hope you will enjoy it too and remain available for any question or concern.

About Pompidou Escape Agency

We are an international couple that moved to Paris and lived there for more than 15 years. We fell in love with this apartment back in 2009 and decided to buy it for ourselves. We live now in NY and travel back to Paris occasionally to stay and stay in this apartment or our other one.

Pompidou Escape Agency purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Pompidou Escape Agency chose Saint-Merri

We were looking for a property that would fit the following description:

- In the Marais area

- In a building with an elevator

- Bright with a nice view

- Quiet - not facing the street

- Ideally with a separate bedroom

This was very hard to find so we looked for a long time before finding this property that fit those requirements and was a rare pearl. We hope our guests will enjoy it as much as we do.

What makes this apartment unique

- The view on the back of the Pompidou center

- Quiet in the center of Paris - which is quite unique in this neighborhood

- In the heart of the Marais

- Bright - plenty of windows

- Elevator - again a tough find in many buildings of the Marais

- Decorated with personality (Tango theme)

It's cozy, but has everything you need. Nice shower, good wifi, coffee.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 5 night stay. The location of the room is outstanding. We seldom used the metro, and walked most places. The checkin instructions were simple and explicit, and everything was thoroughly explained. Highly recommend, and would stay again.

Small and over-priced

  • 2 of 5

This apartment was very small, over-priced and the elevator is so small that two people can hardly fit into it and that is with no baggage. The kitchen 'table' will hardly hold two placemats.

Très bon choix

  • 4 of 5

Appartement très tranquille (sur une cour intérieure) avec tous les services ( métro, boulangerie, vins, Franprix, traiteurs, ) à quelques pas. Aussi accessibles à pied: le Marais, d'excellents restaurants de quartier, Beaubourg, l'Hotel de ville, Notre-Dame, ... Appartement petit mais agréable, lumineux et bien équipé. Nous y retournerions.

Good Location

  • 4 of 5

Good location, only a very short walk to the main sites. All the necessities right down stairs. The size is a little small for 4 adults. Definitely ok for 2 adults. Inside the flat was very quiet at night as well.

Very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We loved out stay at The Pompidou Escape! The apartment was small but still very comfortable for my dad and I. It's in a great location! Very close to the metro, lots of places to get drinks/food, and a very easy walk to Notre Dame. I will definitely want to stay here again the next time I visit Paris!
