A sophisticated haven, Atelier is a rare combination of stunning design, location and a five-star experience, all in a historic setting. The owner, a former hotelier with an eye for comfort, quality and style, has transformed a 17th century printing shop into a luxurious enclave while retaining the building’s architectural character and original charm. In a sea of ordinary apartment rentals, Atelier is truly one of a kind.
Located on a tiny, ancient street named for the gravel workers who once lived there, the apartment combines the features of a deluxe hotel with the comforts of an exclusive private residence. Guests enjoy the best of both worlds -- an authentic Parisian neighborhood where you can live like a local -- away from the tourist hordes -- but centrally located on the Right Bank and close to all of the major tourist sites. The area is diverse, with a bohemian “SoHo” vibe and an eclectic mix of boutiques, art galleries and sought after restaurants interspersed with cafes, ethnic eateries and Chinese wholesalers. The Pompidou Center is down the street, and Notre Dame, the Louvre, the romantic gardens of the Palais Royal, the hip Rue Montorgueil and the heart of the historic Marais and Jewish Quarter are all an easy stroll. If you’d rather take public transport, the Arts et Metiers metro, around the corner, will whisk you virtually anywhere in Paris in minutes.
Named for the 30+ foot wall of glass that bathes the apartment with light, Atelier’s dramatic high-ceiling with original beams creates a sense of space that is rare in Parisian apartments. The expansive living/dining area is tastefully furnished with fine art, a flat screen TV and a dramatic eco-friendly fireplace; it features a dining table for six, and a high-quality convertible sofa with a supremely comfortable queen size mattress for two additional guests. Equipped with a commercial grade range, the chef’s kitchen is a show-stopper, ideal for creating gourmet meals with provisions from the nearby Marche des Enfants Rouges, the oldest open-air market in Paris, named one of the World’s Top Food Markets by Travel and Leisure Magazine. The adjacent master bath has a large walk-in rain shower, Carrera marble and original stone walls.
A beautiful spiral staircase leads to the completely private master bedroom, an elegant retreat outfitted with a king-size four-poster bed and luxury linens. And because Atelier is situated off a quiet courtyard, you’ll be ensured a restful night’s sleep. Across the hall is a chic studio, which can be joined to create a two-bedroom/two bath set-up that sleeps six. The studio, with its own mini-kitchen and additional separate entrance accommodates two more guests on a second high quality sofa bed.
Your experience is made complete with unparalleled standards of cleanliness, attention to detail and customer service; We know what our guests want, and we take very good care of them.
If you’re a discerning traveler who prefers an authentic Parisian experience in a environment of unparalleled quality, comfort and design, Atelier is a perfect choice.

A comfortable lovely place
My family enjoyed spending five nights at this lovely apartment. The location was perfect for us and the neighborhood felt like home. I had envisioned using the Velib bikes and Metro during our stay but we ended up walking everywhere because we were so close to the Seine and all of the beautiful sites in Paris. It was hard leaving the neighborhood also because it was so interesting. We would definitely stay there again. Thank you!
Great apartment in great location.
Loved the apartment and the location. I highly recommend.
Nice flat in the Marais; studio had bed bugs
The apartment is lovely and well appointed, and we enjoyed the location. We had a nice dinner at the Moroccan restaurant a few doors down. The kitchen (including vegetables for ratatouille and wine), fireplace, and tv meant that it was a nice place to be for a long stay over Christmas. We rented both parts, which gave us plenty of space for our family of four. It's good to understand the layout- for us it was fine because we were comfortable going through the studio bedroom to the bathroom- otherwise you have to go downstairs, which are tricky and tough on bare feet, so you'd probably rather not do it in the middle of the night. We had thought my older parents might join us; it wouldn't have been an easy place for them to manage. The folks we dealt with beforehand and checking in were helpful. However, the studio bed definitely had bed bugs. I realize that's a risk of the travel world, and it certainly wasn't because the place wasn't clean, but I was disappointed in how they handled it. I told the on-site manager (David) and the woman with whom we made the reservation (Michelle) and did not get a response other than "That's never been a problem" and "I'll talk to the owners." It was a huge hassle for us to do what we needed to do protect our home (including a chunk of time and money in a laundry mat and bagging our luggage and other unwashable items). In addition, we discovered that our daughter is allergic to the bites; she had huge bumps all over her face and body, and had to go to the doctor for prescription medications to get the reaction under control. We left on 28 December and the bites are now finally going down and are less itchy (10 days after we checked out).
While we are truly sorry that this guest’s travel was marred by a bad experience, there are no bedbugs in our lovely studio apartment. The guest stayed for three of their four nights with no complaint, then contacted us at 3 pm on the last day of their stay (they left at 6 am the next morning). We very much care about the well-being of our guests, and if they had contacted us sooner, we would of course have moved them immediately as a precaution.
The day that they left we brought in our contracted pest control service which thankfully gave us a clear bill of health. We then reached out to the apartment owners (who live out of the country) but before we had a chance to complete the inspection and respond, the guest had lodged a formal complaint with VRBO. VRBO officially closed the case opened by the guest within 24 hours. Neither prior guests, nor those who immediately followed reported any problems or complaints.
As the guest herself points out, Atelier is meticulously clean and well cared for. Bedbugs are epidemic. and can be picked up in many public places, including restaurants, movie theaters, etc. We’re very sorry for this guest’s experience, but our apartment wasn’t the source of the problem.
Great location and nice clean apartment
Great place and convenient location. Nice bright apartment. All positive except two things: Front door lock is tricky to operate. Not everyone was able to open it. There are two beds set up and one sofa bed but actually there was only one real bed. The other one was also a sofa bed, and obviously not as comfortable as a real bed.
Terrific apartment on historic Rue des Gravilliers (Marais)
We have stayed at Atelier twice in the last two years, each time was fantastic. The apartment is well maintained and perfectly located near major attractions. The metro station is a block away. The grocery store is a block away. There are about 10 restaurants within a few steps, all very good. There are markets for bread, fruit and cheese nearby. The apartment kitchen is as nice as you will find anywhere, and very large. You have every amenity and appliance possible. The apartment is spacious and quiet. We could not have asked for better accommodations or service. The manager David will tell you all you need to know and is available by text/email 24-7. My family gives this rental 5 stars and we'd give it a 10 if that were possible. We hope to return as soon as possible. Enjoy!
Hidden Gem in Central Paris!
Wonderful apartment beautifully appointed perfect for those looking to experience Paris as lived by Parisians. Great markets nearby for produce, meats, fish and wine. Lovely spacious public rooms for relaxing and entertaining. Great property manager available to take care of any issues that may arise. Would return in a minute. Bonus: When we arrived there was a gorgeous basket of fresh vegetables, bread and wine sitting on the counter so we could toss together a nice meal without having to leave the premises. Bravo!
