We had a great visit. Apartment was everything we needed. Location in Marais was ideal. The property management company was very gracious in meeting us and making sure we were totally comfortable. Place is very clean with numerous amenities. Walked to restaurants/shops/museums/metro. Two adults/two kids. We did not cook or spend a lot of time as we were out and about enjoying the wonders of Paris. Highly recommend for anyone intending to do the same.
We loved our stay at the Marais apartment. Our host was very helpful and attentive; the apartment was comfortable and well-appointed; the location, the Marais, was perfect for exploring and touring the City. We highly recommend this apartment.
This apartment and location was perfect for the five adults that stayed there! It had plenty of room and the bathroom was a great size. It was so nice to walk out the front door and not go far for cafes or the market, museums, the metro, the river, and much more! We would definitely stay here again if we get the chance to return to Paris!
Perfect location. Perfect staff. Great flat. Large windows. Plenty of space for a family of four. Kitchen has everything that you need. I would stay here again without question.
Stayed in this flat for five days with my two adult sons. By Paris standards, the flat was quite roomy and the bathroom was large by any standard. Ample towels and bedding were provided. The best part was the location. Easy access to Hotel de Ville for most major Metro connections... a bus that stops literally in front of the building... and only a 10 minute walk from the RER station that runs to CDG Airport. You are also less than two blocks from Le Pompidou, yet in the "right" direction that takes you away from the tourists and into the neighborhood. The only reason I gave it four stars instead of five was because the exterior of the building was having some plaster work done and scaffolding mostly obstructed our view. The plaster work was not a surprise as the owner was very honest about it before booking, and the workers were only there 8:30 - 5pm on week days. But it did limit the sunlight and we couldn't have the windows open due to workers standing right there or else the smell of paint when they were gone. The closed windows did make the flat nice and quiet for sleeping. All in all, I would stay here again.
