Perfect base to see the sites

  • 5 of 5

We loved this little apartment. Laurence has made very good use of space. You will find everything you need here - including a washing machine and bath (quite unusual in Paris and lovely to soak in after a tiring day sightseeing!). It is small but the raised bed area makes it very comfortable for a family of four. We really loved the location. It's very central for everything but slightly out of the main touristy part of the Marais so eating out is so much more affordable. There are lots of really good cafes and restaurants on the doorstep. Our favourite was Chouchou which is just around the corner. Laurence was very welcoming, efficient and professional. She kept excellent communication at all times. I'd recommend Laurence and her lovey little apartment without hesitation. We will certainly return for future Paris visits.

Great Location, wonderful host!

  • 5 of 5

Great location situated right next to the pompidou and within walking distance of the metro and many other attractions. The neighborhood is very lively and is a great place for young people at night. Everything was great and we couldn't have asked for a better experience.

Perfect location and great amenities

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is located one block from the Musee Pompidou near Le Marais and Beaubourg. For us, this was the perfect location. There are shops and cafes all around which makes it easy to feel like you live here. The apartment is compact but well laid out and the amenities were great. We stayed a full week and loved having a washer/dryer. The apartment is very clean and well-maintained. Laurence was very flexible and helpful when we met her here. She is friendly and very knowledgeable. We visited France for my birthday and Laurence helped to make it special. The kitchen is small but we found it perfect to make breakfast and some lunches. Again, the neighborhood offers so many restaurants and cafes, that we really wanted to eat out. The location is perfect: It is so near Chatelet-Les Halles which is direct by RER from Charles de Gaulle. It's so central that we really walked everywhere. We would recommend this apartment and would definitely stay here again.

Jewel in Paris

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is in the perfect location. I chose it because it is close to a metro station, but we hardly had to use it, because the apartment is within walking distance of so many sites! Laurence is wonderful! From the start, she is in frequent contact, and responds promptly to emails, with great detail and good information. She has a book in the apartment that's full of useful information, including nearby restaurants, metro and train information, and wifi, and emergency information. She's easy to work with, and we had a wonderful time. The apartment was great for me and my two teenage daughters. There are a lot of shops and restaurants in the neighborhood that we enjoyed exploring! There is also a Monoprix (a little convenience store) around the corner. I would definitely recommend this apartment. It couldn't have been easier or more enjoyable! This was our first time using a rental service like this, so I was very nervous and careful about choosing an apartment. Our first experience was great. The listing is accurate, and the apartment is in clean and tip-top shape!

Clean, well-maintained, cozy apartment.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment had all we needed for cooking, sleeping, laundry, and bathing. Really appreciated the secure entrance, quiet courtyard, and full bath! The apartment was immaculately clean. The stairway is narrow, so be aware that getting a large suitcase upstairs would be a challenge. Laurence was a pleasure to work with and was quickly in contact with us from the time we booked and throughout our stay. We have already recommended the apartment to others.

Partment in the Marais

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is small and well kept with all you would need to either relax or to cook a home meal. The shower works well. The building is quiet considering that the area is crowded and lived. It is very close from subway and strategically located in the heart of Paris. You can walk to the main city sites and museums or stolling to small cafes' and bistros. The area is served by small shops and restaurants opened until late at night. Supermarkets are nearby.

Laurence, the owner of the apartment, is very nice and willing to help. I recommend this place without reservations.

= METRO & EXPRESS TRAINS RER =

A few steps to the station 'Châtelet-les-halles'' hub and meeting point of major Paris transportation (Metro lines 1, 4, 7, 11, 14 and express trains RER A, B, D).

From this apartment, you have a direct access from/to 'Charles de Gaulle airport', the 'gare du Nord', and a direct access to Disneyland Paris.

To navigate around Paris, you can also take the boat shuttle 'Batobus' on the river Seine with a stop close to the apartment!...Slower than the metro but you will also have the opportunity to discover Paris at the same time and it is also much more fun! With the Batobus, you can go for example to the Champs-Elysées, or to the Orsay museum.
