Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms + Convertible Bed(s), 1 Bath (Sleeps 4-6)

This 60m² elegant loft offers a rare combination of advantages:

• Apt is great for 4 guests using the bedroom and the living room sofa bed on the lower level. 2 extra adults may use the mezzanine.

• A perfect location: rue des Gravilliers, in the middle of the 3rd arrondissement (metro Arts et Métiers 1mn), west part of Le Marais trendy district in a calm location.

• Windows bath the apartment in light

• High ceiling, wooden beams and floor embellish the apt in a centuries old building

The apt door is to be found on 4th floor (French Standard) after having climbed the ancient stairs (no elevator).

A wooden floored corridor lit with a large window leads to the spacious living area. Ceiling is very high and the windows bath the room in light. The wooden floor and beams give a warm feeling. Finally, the delicate furniture gives the final elegant touch.

Living area offers a comfortable convertible sofa bed for 2 guests, a dining area with a wooden table to accommodate up to 6 guests for dinner, an office corner and a very convenient open, modern, and fully equipped kitchen.

The master bedroom area is also wooden floored, quiet and offers a comfortable double bed. View of the windows is charming over typical Paris roofs.

The open mezzanine under the roof is accessible by a wooden ladder and can sleep 2 guests on a nice quality futon bed. It offers a view on the sky and Parisian rooftops through the fanlight (mezzanine is obviously not recommended for kids, ladder has no hand rail. It should be used exclusively by fit adults. Note that it is possible to lift the ladder out of reach for kids).

The bathroom is decorated with white tiles and has a window to receive sun light. It is equipped with a bath tub with shower and offers a sink and toilet.

This location is a perfect base to visit Paris. It stays 15 minute by subway to most interesting Paris locations AND is a very charming and restful area to be appreciated after a whole day shopping and walking through museums.

Nice property in a great location

  • 4 of 5

Really great location in the heart of Paris. Nearby to at least three Metro stops and the Pompidou. Only complaint is that there is not really anyplace to sit comfortably in the apartment. The pictured couch is not there - replaced by a futon without arms. Two wooden chairs are fine, but if you are looking to lounge in the apartment, there isn't really room for that. Otherwise, the apartment is wonderful. Our family of four slept very comfortably and had enough room. No air conditioning, obviously, but even in late July the breezes were adequate.

Great Light/Location - needs a few updates

  • 5 of 5

Cute apartment, but needs a few updates - kitchen table, updated light fixtures (one of the lamps was broken on the base). Apartment lets in an enormous amount of light, which is awesome. It does not have air conditioning - which we thought would be a problem since the temps were in the low 80's during the day - but it ended up not being an issue. Great water pressure in the shower - however, I think a piece of the shower was missing since I was not sure how to turn on the shower (pull up on the nozzle). Having a washer was great - although, we did not use the dryer function since we were told it takes forever to dry. We just hung our clothes on the clothes rack by the window. Great location - easy to navigate - lots of restaurants - grocery store near by.

Apartment is on the 4th floor. 80 steps in total. We are a pretty fit family - and going up/down twice a day was not a big deal - however, if you have an older person in your group - or you have a heavy luggage - be mindful of this. Also, last landing of steps before reaching the top floor of apartment - appear to be loose. Lastly, the code we rcvd for the front door was actually the code plus the first two numbers again. Sounds strange, but the door would not open with the four digit number by itself.

Really enjoyed our stay, nice place and would recommend. Its a no frills place, but very clean and in a great location. Working with the property manager, was fairly easy after we provided all the required documents etc. - Be mindful of coming in after 8 pm. As this apartment does not allow after 8 pm check in's. If the property management company is agreeable to a late check in - it will cost you $60 pounds. (have cash ready).

Wonderful Garret Apartment in Lively Section of Les Marais!

  • 5 of 5

Loved the neighborhood and the apartment and would recommend it to our friends. The apartment is on the fourth floor of a well-maintained building (no elevator, but the walk up wasn't really onerous). The apartment was extremely clean and there were ample towels (an important detail in our book). The instruction manual the owner provided for operating the kitchen appliances was easy to follow. The kitchen was well-stocked with utensils, cooking supplies, etc, though we never did more than cut cheese and bread, spread pate, and open bottles of wine while we were in the apartment. However, cooking would be fun and easy to do, and the many markets are certainly a temptation to do more culinary exploration in the apartment.

The only downside is that if your flight gets you in at too early an hour, the early check-in costs 60 euros, payable in cash on arrival at apartment.

My wife and I spent a week here in mid-March. The apartment is perfect for a couple and perhaps one or two children - depending on length of time, I suppose two adult couples could enjoy it as well. There is an upstairs loft with a double bed, so if two couples were staying there, one couple would have to climb a ladder each morning and night - not so bad for adults. You wouldn't want to put young children in the loft, though.

In any case, we loved the location - super close to the metro and a real range of great cafes, restaurants, and shops. I would definitely stay there again. We had ample space, great light, and my wife loved having a tub at her disposal. Also, the neighborhood quiets down at night, which is great. I've stayed in other spots in other world capitals where heavy tourist and car traffic could not be shut out.

Also, on a street parallel to the one where the apartment is situated, there are some great Chinese noodle shops. This was an unexpected surprise and a welcome one. After some wonderful but more heavy French meals, a light bowl of noodles and dumplings was a pleasure.

Unbeatable location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed four nights at this apartment and quite enjoyed it. The location is excellent and an easy walk to many Paris attractions. There are countless shops and restaurants nearby and we made good use of them. The apartment is clean and very well-equipped, but needs some newer, more comfortable furniture...after a long day of walking it's a must. It is very quiet and we had great sleeps - beds and linens were perfect. The apartment has a great Paris feel to it. The rental process was organized and efficient. We have been to Paris many times and would definitely stay in this apartment again.

LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION! Charming old world apartment — picture perfect backdrop!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, four children (2 adults and 2 teenagers) and I stayed at this apartment for 5 nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here! Ideally situated within walking distance to Notre Dame (a 15-20-minute walk), Sainte-Chapelle, the picturesque Seine, and Centre Pompidou (about a 5-minute walk). The metro is only about a 5-minute walk from the flat and once you hop on the metro you'll be at the doorstep of other wonderful monuments in 30 minutes or less — including such attractions at the Louvre, Arc de Triomphe and Eiffel Tower. There are a number of grocery stores, outstanding restaurants, boutiques, and even a large shopping mall, all within close walking distance. There is a excellent butcher across the ally of the apartment, I highly encourage you to pay them a visit, especially if you are looking to prepare a nice home-cooked meal. We purchased a rack of lamb, it was amazing!

LOVED the charm of this picturesque neighborhood and the welcoming attitude of each of the delightful shop owners...everyone was gracious and helpful. We always felt safe in this secured building.

Worth noting: as you'll see from the property description, there are no elevators to this 4th floor flat...you'll need to navigate a number of stairs (84 stairs to be exact!) to get to the apartment. The stairs could pose a considerable challenge to an elderly person or someone in poor health; hauling luggage up and down the stairs was a workout. But at the end of the day we were thankful to be able to sneak in a little extra exercise.

Overall, apartment was well appointed, clean and spacious. Check in and checkout process were straightforward and deposit was refunded promptly after we left. I highly recommend this flat to anyone considering it! Location can not be beat! Special thanks to Yves and Merriam for allowing us to drop off our luggage prior to our check in time….that was a HUGE help!

Highly recommend this place! I hope to return! Cheers!
