I strongly recommend this incredible studio. It has all the ammenities of a US hotel, but the feel of being at home.

This is our second time staying at Studio St. Paul and we had a wonderful time again. Jim is attentive to details and has provided many thoughtful touches in the studio. Jean Michel and Aymen took very good care of us. We used the car service several times and it was great. Jean Michel and Aymen were waiting for us upon our arrival, which made getting from the airport and train station to the studio stress free. They are both very friendly and good humored. We contacted the hotel several times to get assistance with dinner reservations and they were quite responsive. The studio is in a great location and has much appreciated amenities such as free internet access, washing machine/dryer and kitchen with dishwasher. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment is well laid out with more storage than you might think. Thanks again to Jim and the staff at Hotel Saint-Louis Bastille for an excellent stay. We can't wait to go back!

We stayed at this apartment for 7 days in June/July 2008. It was wonderful. The apartment is very well kept and furnished. It's in a great location, with easy access to shops, sights and the Metro. We highly recommend it.

This studio has all you will need for a lovely stay, and is located in a wonderful neighborhood, close to everything you could possibly need- wonderful food, sights, and easily accessible public transportation.

I conduct international seminars in Atlanta. Often times these seminars take place around 12 to 15 days. My clients need a place that has the luxury of a hotel but the convenience and atmosphere of a home. This year I tried placing people in one of the units available in Mayfair Hotel through 'Our home in Atlanta' . The guests could make use of the concierge services, the library, all other aminities. The units are in top condition; viewing the labels and the bathrobes, the cleanliness and hygiene, the top quality of furniture and interior, you would think you are at the Ritz. Needless to say, my clients were surprised and impressed, especially because it was a few minutes away from the seminar location in W Hotel and Marta and cabs. This is THE solution for travellers, either business or pleasure. Five stars to you, Jim. Sonia.

Manager response: While this is a wonderful review, and I'm most appreciative, I confess it's to another one of my apartments, in Atlanta, Georgia. The guest has been informed! ..JB
Charmingly furnished, quiet, and centrally located, this apartment is a great base in Paris. The affiliation with a hotel allows for easy contact for information or assistance. Don't open your window if you don't want to wake up to the smell of croissants cooling by the back door of the patisserie across the courtyard.

Great place! A very short walk from the St. Paul metro station on the busy Rue de Rivoli, on the backbone line of the metro system, just two stops from the major Chatelet transfer station; walking distance to Notre Dame, the Pompidou, etc. In the interesting Village St. Paul neighborhood, on a wonderfully quiet street. The studio apartment is very convenient, comfortable and beautifully kept. The French half of the ownership, Mr. Tournu, and the lady at the hotel associated with the apartment, Manuella, couldn't have been more helpful. Everything in the apartment worked well, including the elevator (occasionally needed two or three pushes on the buttons, but ALWAYS worked). This place would be terrific if it were a tiny hotel room in such a good location what with the air conditioning and elevator, but for such a spacious studio - it's way beyond terrific. Far and away the best place we've ever stayed in six trips to Paris. And if you're French fruit tart lovers like us, nearby on the Rue de Rivoli there's one of the Paul chain of Patisseries as well as an excellent independent. Finally, if you're crazy for duck, either the main Brasserie Bofinger (an old institution) or the Petit Bofinger offshoot shouldn't be missed. The two restaurants, accross the street from one another near the Bastille (short walk from the apartment), make duck in two different - but very classical - styles, but both dishes are great and reasonably priced. Of course, we ate both. These restaurants are NOT "inventive", and we're certain that the really chic crowd wouldn't be caught dead in them, but if they're tourist traps then we were ecstatic to be trapped in them. Forgot to mention - also close is a Monoprix department store, where you can buy cereal, fruit, etc. for breakfast and other groceries if you're making other meals. Summing up - great apartment, great location, convenient neighborhood, wonderful people.

There was a mix up with our apartment the day we arrived, but once Jim and Jean-Michel heard about it, it was taken care of very quickly. After that, once we settled into the Rue St Paul apartment, we truly enjoyed out time there. It's an amazing location, 3 minutes (I timed it) walk to the St Paul Metro station! Every kind of shop you would need (groceries, bakery, etc) is between you and the station. Even though it is only one street off Rue St Antoine, it's amazingly peaceful and surprisingly quiet. Be warned, if you have a hard time resisting the smells of a bakery, don't open the window!! My brother met us in Paris with our Mother and Aunt, and they stayed in the Hôtel de Vendôme. A very luxurious 4 star hotel close to the Ritz hotel. Once he saw our apartment, he realized that his money would have been WAY better spent taking an apartment like ours. He commented that for what he paid for one night in the Hotel, he could stay five nights in the apartment, and the apartment would have been better! We were already recommending the apartment to friends before we even got to Paris, and our stay there only reinforces our feeling. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Our stay at your 26 Rue St. Paul apartment was simply wonderful and Paris was wonderful! We were thrilled with the apartment and the Marais district itself. This was our first trip to France and our stay in Paris was at the end of the trip after having spent time in Brittany and Normandy. We loved the location in the Marais area of Paris which had great atmosphere and old world charm, wonderful shops and many of restaurants of all kinds. We could walk much of Paris so easily from this location and we definitely did walk a lot. We also liked the convenience of having three metro stations within a short distance. We loved walking two blocks down to the Seine and strolling across Pont Marie to Ile Saint Louis and then to Notre Dame and the Left Bank, or 15-20 minutes to walk to the Louvre. The apartment itself was great. Very quiet on the inside back courtyard, much more space than we would have found in a hotel room and with a wonderfully modern kitchen and bathroom. There was plenty of storage space which was very nice to have, and we enjoyed having the table to sit at having our croissants or quiche, fresh fruit and coffee for breakfast everyday. The boulangerie/patisserie right downstairs was very good, or there were several others just up the street. We ate some dinners in also and found the kitchen really had everything needed to prepare meals or heat up already prepared food. Actually on this trip we did not stay in hotels at all and we really enjoyed not having to eat out 3 meals a day. We liked the Red Wheelbarrow English language bookstore a few doors down and the ladies there were very helpful. I am so glad I found your apartment site on VRBO. We have decided that vacation apartments are a much better way to enjoy ourselves and get more for our money especially with the way the exchange rate is right now. We are talking of returning to Paris next year as there is so much to do and see in this wonderful city. Hopefully if we plan enough ahead, we will be able to stay in one of your apartments again. Having the connection to the Hotel Saint Lous Marais was very nice also with the assistance of Aymen and Jean-Michel. All in all we loved the experience and hope to return again soon.

Having done a fair amount of traveling in my life, I would highly recommend "The Studio" on Rue St Paul. It was a delight to find exactly what was advertised, a home away from home. A perfect getaway for two, nicely appointed, charming space. Jim, the owner, was most attentive and took extra care in responding to our last minute change of plans. The hotel staff was helpful as well. The village of St Paul is quintessential Paris! Do not miss the opportunity to stay in this lovely apartment.

The studio on Rue St. Paul is a gem! It is incredibly clean, comfortable, and has everything you need. The nearby shops and restaurants were terrific. We felt like a part of Paris, instead of just guests of Paris. The apartment, location, and the people at Hotel St. Louis-Marais all exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend this apartment, however, try not to book it during OUR return! Merci mille fois!

I had the distinct pleasure of visiting Paris for the first time in my life in February. I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to travel from the airport to my apartment utilizing the car service (Monsieur Victor) recommended by the owner. The drive was quite pleasant and even helped me with my luggage into the apartment. I was so happy to see the exquisite detail and obvious attention to high standard, I was able to relax and decompress from the arduous task of flying in from the states. The sheer historic drama that is so evidently present inside the walls of the studio got me wondering about what these walls would say if they could talk! The apartment is beautifully decorated with every attention to detail and has plenty of room for two. The washer/dryer really came in handy since I packed on the light side. The kitchen is complete with everything I needed to prepare a meal although I dined out most of my stay (a temptation that is hard to resist, given the location of studio St Paul - the very heart of the Marais where the neighborhood pulses with exquisite restaurants, shops, bakeries and markets - too many to count.) The owners recommendation to dine at Tete D'Alleurs was a good one and Bobar was a fun place to grab a drink and a meal in a very hip spot. My favorite dining experience was breakfast at Cafe Francais in front of the Bastille - like sitting in a famous impressionist painting of a busy Parisian cafe. The prime location of the studio is a definite plus, metro is a quick walk down the street and put me in touch with all of the museums and attractions this beautiful city has to offer. I was fortunate enough to get information from the concierge desk for a tour of Montmarte with easy walking access to Sacre Coeur and the famous Moulin Rouge. Each night, weary from my many sights and scenes of the gorgeous city of Paris, I was happy to open the door to my perfect home away from home.

This was our second stay at the Rue Saint Paul studio with the same results - absolutely excellent and a wonderful experience. Only minutes walk from Notre Dame, Louvre, Place de la Concorde, Arch de Triomphe, Etc., and two blocks off the Seine, this location in The Marais is perfect. Do the tourist thing during the day and in a few minutes return to the little village of St. Paul with all the local inhabitants (extremely friendly) and the local restaurants, bakeries, cheese shops, butchers, etc., etc. The studio is equipped in first class fashion and in a protected courtyard next to a bakery. You wake to the smell of fresh baked bread every morning! You literally become a part of the local scene and you will love it. The quality of the fixtures, attention to detail and cleanliness is beyond reproach. This is first class at a bargain price. The care and co-operation of the close-by hotel management is nothing short of exceptional, friendly and English speaking. Can't imagine a more appropriate place for a couple to enjoy the wonders of Paris and yet be in the remarkable and quaint 4th Arrondisement. We could go on and on with the positives associated with this property. Jim and Beth (regular guests and we'll be back)!!!

The apartment was exquisite and equipt with everything we needed - especially the corkscrew. The location is private and quiet with easy access to the city by foot or metro. I felt completely safe to wander alone and explore the neighborhoods. Despite the wonderful restaurants of Paris our most memorable meal was at the apt. - a picnic during a thunderstorm.The nearby markets are a foodie's dream. Jean Michelle was amazing at helping us with impossible restaurant reservations and our transportation. He was a great resource and support.

Just wanted to write to let you know how much we enjoyed staying at your apartment. It is in an awesome location and having the Patisserie (bakery) right below you was great! The apartment is beautiful and very well furninshed! The metro is close and having internet access was key for my husband!

The apartment at 26 Rue St. Paul is great. The staff at Hotel St. Louis Marais are very helpful in meeting your needs. The apartment is very comfortable and has plenty of room for two adults. The fact that the entrance to the apartment is next door to a pastry shop is a HUGE plus! It is great waking up in the morning to the smell of fresh baked pastries. The neighborhood has a lot to offer - great restaruants, grocery stores, specialty shops (pastry, cheese, flowers, fruits and vegetables). There are several convenient Metro stops nearby. We really enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning someday.

The studio apartment at 26 Rue St. Paul is a delightful, quiet retreat, decorated with understated elegance. The apartment has a charming kitchen, modern bath, and spacious main room with ample storage. The apartment’s windows overlook a courtyard, which connects to a short, pleasantly ancient, private alley-walkway that gives access to a grand old door that opens onto the Rue St. Paul.Directly adjacent to the Rue St. Paul door, is one of the best bread shops of Paris. The staff is unbelievably polite and always greet with a smile. Their shop is surrounded by boutiques, boulangeries, patisseries and cafes (all uncrowded and often unfound by most visitors to Paris).26 Rue St. Paul is perfectly situated within an easy walking distance of the most important sites of Paris. The short street of the Rue St. Paul connects the Rue de Rivoli (which runs beside the Louvre) with the Quai des Celestins (which borders the Seine and the Ile Saint-Louis). The Bastille monument is just around the corner. It is one of many local focal points of evening activity with its modern Opera Bastille and a metro station from which you can easily connect to all of Paris and its suburbs (including Versailles via the Pont du Sevres).

We looked at several charming boutique hotels before concluding that having our place to stay was the best way to experience Paris. This studio was an ideal combination of location, charm, ammenities, and ambience. The decorator got everything just right, giving the space a warm and classic feel. A great find!

We just spent Christmas in Paris and it was magical! 26 Rue St. Paul was the perfect place for a romantic, cozy, quiet, relaxing and safe holiday. The studio is tucked away behind a gorgeous wooden door, beautifully restored to make you feel like you are stepping back in time... but,the plentiful modern amenities leave you wanting for nothing. Everything you could possibly want or need in a temporary housing situation is provided. The caring and attentive owners have managed to create a warm, inviting and peaceful little Paris oasis. Also worth mentioning- the studio is perfectly located in the most interesting neighborhood in Paris (this being my opinion after many miles of walking last week!). The Marais district is a delight of cafes, resturants, bakeries, shops of all sorts, art, history, everything that you would imagine Paris to be. The locals are friendly, helpful and patient- and the Metro is a quick walk down the street and around the corner. I can't say enough about the Metro- very easy, quick and clean. The only time we used cabs was when we were out late at night (after 12:30-1:00am). Also, the hotel staff down the street are wonderful and will answer any and all of your questions or help you out with anything you might need/an emergency, etc. If you are looking for an alternative to a typical hotel stay- you have come to the right place! Thank you for the memories.

My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Paris, November 3rd-10th. After sightseeing in many areas of Paris we concluded the Marais area is our favorite. This studio apartment is delightful, meeting our every need. It is cozy, yet spacious and handsomely decorated. The location is perfect for shopping, catching #69 bus and the metro. There are some good restaurants within a block or two - Chiara de Lune, L'Enoteca and La tete ailleurs (our favorite). We can't wait to return to "our" studio on Rue St. Paul.

We loved our stay at this apartment! The location was great, and the apartment was very attractive, functional and comfortable. The studio is exceptionally well planned, with lots of storage space. We had everything we needed for two people. The washer/dryer combo was particularly nice to have. We appreciated the nice selection of Paris guidebooks as well. The apartment is located within a short walk to bus and metro lines, as well as to stores, cafes, museums and other attractions. The #69 bus, which stops across the street from St-Paul, goes to a number of top tourist sites (see the Rick Steves Paris book for a helpful map and discussion of the route). Several people have mentioned the bakery downstairs, which was quite good and certainly convenient. There is also a wine bar on the street, Le Rouge Gorge, with friendly staff and interesting wines by the glass. The neighborhood felt very safe. We were especially pleased with the customer service from Cyril and Jean-Michel at the Hotel Saint-Louis Marais. They were both very friendly, helpful and good humored, and it was nice to know they were there if we needed anything. They were also very responsive when I e-mailed for restaurant reservations and car pick up service prior to our trip. They're the best! We've stayed in other apartments in Paris in the past, and this was by far our favorite experience. The owner obviously cares a lot about the comfort of his guests, and it shows in the many thoughtful details. Our expectations were exceeded. We will definitely stay here again, and highly recommend the apartment.

The river Seine, Notre Dame, the Louvre, the opera house, train staition and great shopping were all within walking distance with many more famous sites and attractions are just a short cab ride away.

Of many holdiays in Paris this was by far the best, in great part to this wonderful apartment. Perfect location - convenient to so much and beautiful furnishings & interior finishes. Its quiet, peaceful interior courtyard location provided a private retreat after full days & nights enjoying the city. And every morning (except Wednesday - be prepared they're closed!) wake up to the aroma of fresh baked breads & pasteries from the neighboring bakery. I highly recommend this to freinds & colleagues and look forward to staying there again on all future trips to Paris.

The apartment is beautifully decorated and has everything needed to cook for yourself and added thoughtful touches ie guide books and hints about the best restarants and walks in Paris. We recommend it for anyone wanting to fully enjoy time in Paris.

We just returned from a week at the studio on Rue St. Paul, and would definitely rent there again. Everything about the apartment more than met our expectations and the neighborhood is a real draw – we walked absolutely everywhere. The use of space in the apartment is very clever and the amenities were all top notch. We were particularly impressed with the attentiveness of the apartment's owner and the staff at the nearby Hotel St. Louis Marais, which provides concierge service.

We still long for breakfast from the patisserie downstairs. We will definitely return.

The apartment is great; in a great location--there must be 30-35 eating establishments in a very short walking distance. A Monoprix is about 2 short blocks and has all one needs. The apartment has everything to make it "your home away from home." There is a bakery right next door and if you open the window the wonderful aromas are almost too much to bear--warm baked good every morning if you desire!!! The shuttle service to and from the apartment was great and Eddy, the driver, was very accommodating. All in all a wonderful vacation!!!

The studio apt.(26 rue St. Paul) was exceptional! Quiet, off a courtyard and in the Village of St.Paul in the Marais and 10-15 min. to Notre Dame, Ile St. Louis, etc. and a few min. from the Seine. Although in the middle of everything,one feels a part of the local Parisian people & scene. The area is very safe, friendly and abounds in breathtaking scenes, excellent, reasonable shopping and superb eating. The apt. was roomy, spotless and fully equipped in the very best of taste. An exceptional value supervised by a friendly staff fluent in English and owned by an involved and caring Atlantan. Could not feel more at home in this area with the people, the stores and superb apt. In our opinion, the best area in Paris to do the tourist thing yet return to the taste of local Paris life. It's a special area with a very special apartment! Highly recommended and literally can't wait to return to the Marais, to the local people and to the lovely apt. A truly satisfying experience in all respects. Jim & Beth 478-822-9564

The studio is very charming, quiet, has all the amenities we needed, and is located in an absolutely perfect location for seeing the Parisian sites or feeling as if you are part of the Parisian life style. You enter the studio building behind a large centuries old door, down a hall way, and into a small courtyard. We felt like we lived in the city while we were in the studio!! Every morning, as we headed out for our daily adventure, we were pleasantly engulfed by the smells of the bakery that shares the front of the buliding. We loved it and will stay there again. Thanks for the lovely accommodations.

I stayed at the Paris studio in mid- Feb-2006 - what a marvellous place ! So well located next to the Marais district with Notre Dame, Hotel du Ville and Pompedou Centre all within 15 minutes walk. The Studio is marvellously well appointed and equipped and the bakery next door - oh my ! The small hotel that has an arrangement with the Studio owners was so helpful and their driver Eddie a wizard at beating the airport traffic both ways. There are marvellous restaurants and bars in the area and so much to see. So, all in all, fantastic value for money, I`ll be back !!
