Saint Gervais Apartment Rental Photos and Description

The Marais apartment is an upside down duplex found on the 3rd and 4th floor of a 19th century building (access is through the 4th floor

without elevator).

The upper floor has a large open room where wooden floors and centennial wooden beams harmoniously blend in with modern day furniture.

The open plan kitchen has been completely redone and will allow you to put your cooking skills to the test with some French cuisine. You can

then savor your favorite dishes on the kitchen counter thought out for this very purpose... unless you would rather sit down at the large kitchen table.

The living room corner has a comfortable sofa (sleeps 2) where you can take advantage of the superb flat screen TV or surf the web thanks to

the wireless Internet connection at your disposal.

Down a spiral staircase you access the lower floor in which you will find the bathroom, with a large shower unit, and two cozy bedrooms that can each sleep 2 (one double bed and the other has two singles beds)

Great stay in the Marais!

  • 5 of 5

Great experience for our family. We loved the two single beds for our boys and the two floors gave us all the space we needed. Highly recommend.

Great, affordable apartment in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of four and stayed in this apartment for 4 days in July. The best thing about this apartment was the location: a 2 minute walk to the closest Metro stop, in the heart of Paris. The neighborhood, the Marais, is wonderful - very colorful and vibrant, and although we certainly weren't the only tourists around it didn't feel "touristy". The apartment is large so we had plenty of space. The apartment was adequately clean when we arrived, and sufficiently supplied/stocked. There were only a couple of downsides: first, the building stairwell smelled of urine and the plumbing in the unit was a little sketchy. This may just be a function of the fact that this is a very old building, which is charming but has it's downsides in practical terms. There was a cleaning team that showed up toward the end of our stay and scrubbed the building hallways and stairs, which helped the first issue a lot. The plumbing issue didn't bother us enough to complain, but if you're persnickety it might bother you. The other thing to be aware of is that this is a 4th floor apartment with a dark staircase with VERY shallow and somewhat slippery steps. If you have very young kids or anyone traveling with you with any kind of mobility or fitness issue, this apartment may not work for you. The other issue was that the management company requested us to hand them the security deposit in cash when we arrived, which was 750 euros. We found this to not be uncommon in Europe, but as it's unheard of in the States it was surprising to us at first. We did not like having to carry around that much cash while we were traveling (even for a day), and handing cash to the person who checked us in required us to confirm the transaction to the management company via text/email, and then do the same in reverse when we checked out. Also, we misunderstood the amount required for the security deposit at first, which resulted in my husband having to walk to an ATM with the check-in person when we arrived. The whole thing kind of felt like we were participating in a drug deal or something! Awkward. However, all in all the downsides were minor and I would recommend this large and very convenient apartment and would stay here again.

You can't ask for a better apartment

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect. the location, the friendly introduction, the equipment with coffee machine and hairdryer. Even when we locked ourselves out the owner was friendly. I would come again if I go to Paris. Great place!

Wonderful in Paris

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 with 3 boys, so we were looking for a location where we had more space than 2 hotel rooms + close to Paris attractions. This apartment was the perfect fit for us with a queen bed in one room, 2 singles in another bedroom and a pull out couch in the living room. The location is perfect, whether you are walking, taking the metro or using Le Cab to get around Paris. We found a few boulangeries in the neighborhood for breakfast, so we were never lacking great croissants.

The apartment is on the 4th floor of a walk up, and you will get a good work out walking up the stairs. Francois was helpful in getting our luggage up the steps. Inside, we had 2 floors with the bedrooms and bathroom on the lower floor.

Francois and Nerea were very responsive to emails and phone calls <might have bugged Francois a bit too much on our arrival :) >. All financial transactions were done via PayPal and our security deposit was returned 2 days after we left.

Great experience, great apartment, great location and great communication

Perfection in the heart of the Marais

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 who called this wonderful apartment in the heart of the Marais our home for 2 weeks. The apartment was exactly as it appeared in the photos and as it was described in the listing. It was clean and contained everything we required for a comfortable stay. We received excellent customer service from the owner prior to our stay and from Francois during our stay. The apartment is in an excellent location with easy access to all amenities including metro, supermarkets, boulangerie/patisserie, charcuterie, restaurants and other shops. We highly recommend the restaurant La Bucheron located around the corner for a delicious, reasonably priced meal. We would highly recommend this apartment and hope we get the opportunity to stay in it again.
