About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 4-6 people

Bright, stylish 57 sq. meter apartment is located steps from the bustling Marais district. Located on the second floor of a 19th century building with elevator, original parquet floors, tall Parisian windows, and warm colored walls and furnishings, make this a pleasant and convenient base for exploring all Paris has to offer.

The open dining/living room has a sofa bed sleeping two, glass coffee table, a small Parisian café table by the windows, and dining table seating six.

The kitchen has a window facing the courtyard, tile floor, bright red cabinets. Well-equipped with a washer/dryer combo, refrigerator with a freezer, traditional oven, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, and all the cookware and dishes that are needed for a hassle-free stay. There is also a desk in the entry area, WIFI, phone with free domestic and international calls to fixed lines, flat screen cable TV, DVD player, and stereo.

The apartment has two bedrooms, each of which can sleep 2. The living room sofabed sleeps two.

In December 2015 "Airport grade" , highest quality money can buy, sound insulating windows were installed in the bedrooms which has eliminated any street noise from the bedrooms. Feedback from tenants after December 2015 confirm a quiet night sleep.

Needs Some Improvements

  • 3 of 5

Yes, this was well located and spacious for a Paris apartment. Beiing positioned on two streets, it would have been very noisy. New triple-paned windows were installed and it was quiet. The kitchen was small but very usable. While there were al the tools one would need to cook a meal, there were only enough dishes for 4 people at one time. The washer/dryer washed well but the dryer did not function. This would not be a problem for a short stay but we were there for three weeks and it took 2-3 days for some clothes to dry on the drying rack. A description of the apartment stated that there was a dryer and we packed accordingly -- assuming we could wash AND dry. The beds were comfortablue but there were no mattress covers--just sheets on top of the mattresses. The shower head is very unstable and should be replaced. Take care--the water heater is very efficient but very hot. We did not need to use the sofa bed, but the upholstery was quite dirty and the cushions on the seat did not cover the metal frame. When we sat on it, the seat cushions gradually slid forward and the back cushions slipped down. It was quite unsightly and uncomfortable. It definitely should be replaced. The floors were a beautiful wood. However, the rug in front of the sofa should be removed or replaced. It slides out and could be a danger. If these few improvements were made, I would definitely consider staying at this apartment again.

Great location, fair price, friendly people.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here three nights in November of 2016. There is easy access to the metro and a 15 min walk to Notre Dame. We loved the location and found the apartment charming. Beds were comfortable and the place is quite inside even if the outside is noisy. The owner installed some kind of super top of the line windows that totally shut out the road and neighborhood noise. It was great for us. Also, we loved Sabine (local apartment manager). She got us settled and answered questions about local stuff. She is a delight!

Nice apartment with great location & amenities

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. Even though it is located on the main road, it is very quite. You can hardly hear anything unless windows are open. Metro is just outside the main door. Many good food places and grocery store is just around the corner also. Having washer and dryer at the apartment made our trip much easier. Sabine ( lady who greeted us at the apartment) was extremely nice and shared lot of information with us.

Over all it was a very good experience.

Apartment in Central Paris

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here as a family 2ad/3children and it had everything we needed. Two Bedrooms and a Pull Out HUGE Sofabed in the Living Room. A Small balcony to sit out and have a wee glass of vino in the evening. Great Setup with all the usual Apartment facilities and a Washing machine. It was very central only a few mins walk to Plaza Republique and a Metro stop outside to access around Paris if you want to see the sights. There is a Supermarket just up from the Apartment and lost lots of lovely restaurants around this area. The lady that looks after the apartment met us on arrival, very professional and went through everything with us even to advise of some nice Boulangeries near by if you don't mind the 5minute walk. I would not hesitate to stay here again. Give it a Go you wont be disappointed.
