Paris Arrondissement 4 apartment description

This apartment is located in le marais, on a calm little street only 20 steps away from the Pompidou Center').

Just everything is right at your door:

- Museums: the Pompidou center of course (which is the 'temple of modern art'), the Louvre less that 10 minutes away, the Picasso Museum, le Musée Carnavalet, l'Hotel de Sully...

- Monuments: Notre Dame, Hotel de Ville, la Sainte Chapelle, Bastille, Opera... The Eiffel Tower (which is not in the very center of Paris) is about 30 mn away by metro. The Champs Elysées avenue is less than 10 minutes away by metro.

- Districts: you are in the heart of Paris, in the fancy, lively and safe marais district. The Islands Ile de la Cité and Ile Saint Louis are just near by. The Latin Quarter is on the other side of la Seine (minutes away) etc.

- Dozens of restaurants and bars, disco, art galleries, boutiques, department stores...

- Metro station and supermarket, bakeries, groceries ...





This studio apartment is 35 m² large (380 ft²).

It is located on the French 1st floor ( = American 2nd floor) of an elevated building. All the windows are facing a large and quiet courtyard: it is a real 'hideaway nest' in the middle of the high energy marais/Beaubourg district.

Windows are very large, as the ceilings are very high, making the apartment very bright.


This large studio feels indeed as a one bedroom, as it includes:

- a separate sleeping area with a full size bed;
- a very welcoming living area, with a good convertible couch (sleeps 1 or 2 people),
- cable TV, DVD player
- a separate fully equipped kitchen, with washer/dryer
- a large bathroom with bathtub
- a separate little room with a LOT of storage place for your belongings and clothes
- WIFI, free long distance calls
- Air Conditioner window unit
- central heating

This apartment ideally sleeps two people, with the possibility to accommodate one or 2 more people sleeping on the good convertible couch.

                We stayed for 5 nights at the end of February. We found the apartment to be exactly as described - the photos were an accurate representation of everything. The apartment was clean, some of the features were not new, but were well-maintained and it has everything you would want. The bed was perfect, not too hard or soft. Isabelle and Marie were both very helpful throughout the booking process and also once we arrived to get us settled. The booking process was smooth and the instructions to collect the key were clear. We have visited Paris many times of the past 10 years and stayed in a number of different apartments. This apartment is by far the best location we have found. So close to all the popular sights as well as just a short stroll into the Marais, which is one of the coolest areas in Paris. There are great bars, cafes & restaurants around every corner and all the main shopping areas just a couple of minutes walk. Being right opposite to the Pompidou Centre we were a little worried about noise, especially at night, but the rooms face an inner courtyard so the nights were very quiet and there was barely any noise even from the street cleaners in the morning. Not what is normally expected in the inner city.

                Booking this apartment last-minute over the phone was perhaps the easiest experience we have ever had in European apartment rentals. Then Marie's written instructions (with pictures!) as to every detail of the rental were superb - - from how the appliances work, to where to dispose of trash, to exactly where to find shops -- down to which way to turn which key. The space was clean and had good lighting, good closet space, a comfortable bed and comfortable sofa. The bathroom is good-sized and includes a tub, and four nice towels were supplied. There were starter quantities in the kitchen of coffee, filters, sugar, oil, seasonings, etc., and the appliances were in good condition. The well-kept building has excellent security and a small elevator, and the location is central, being on the western edge of the Marais. It is not luxurious, but to us it was an excellent value for the money. And as to an issue about which we all usually have some concern, our deposit was returned by credit to our card within a couple of days. Thanks, Marie, for a pleasant and comfortable visit all-around.

                My husband and I spent a wonderful week in Paris with Isabelle's Beaubourg apartment as our base. The young, lively location near the Pompidou Center gave us access to shops, restaurants, and small grocery stores; it also situated us perfectly as we were able to walk to so many parts of the city. Despite the busy neighborhood, the apartment was quiet and private. The building is secure, and there was no problem walking back at night. Although this is a studio, the bed is slightly separated from the sitting area, giving the room a spacious feeling. The kitchen and bath were excellent with everything we needed, and there was a good-sized closet to hold luggage and clothing. For those who have problems climbing flights of stairs, the building has an elevator and the apartment is on the first floor (American second floor). The Beaubourg apartment is a well-priced alternative to a hotel, with more space and home-like amenities, especially the kitchen, washer/dryer (pack light), large bath, and phone and Internet. Most days, we had breakfast and a light dinner in the apartment and saved our appetite for a large lunch in the late afternoon. I appreciated having choices when and where to eat, and we got to enjoy the bread, cheese, wine, and pastry available in our neighborhood. We bought a Batobus pass and used the Seine as water-taxi transportation (hop on and off with the pass). Although we also used the metro and taxis, the weather was wonderful while we were there, and the river was a leisurely way to get to many major attractions. The Hotel de Ville stop was about a ten-minute walk from the apartment, and the boats run every 20 minutes or so. We took the train from the airport to Les Halles station and walked to the apartment. (Hint: save your ticket because you need it to exit the station.) It was a little confusing and a pain to haul our luggage, but it worked well and saved having use a taxi or transfer to the subway for one stop. The trip back to the airport was easy. Isabelle was wonderful! She answered all my inquiries promptly and cheerfully. Our deposit was returned within three days of our return. The apartment was clean and accurately depicted. I would rent one of Isabelle’s apartments again without hesitation. I highly recommend this apartment!

                My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our two weeks in Paris, and the Beaubourg was everything I hoped it would be. The location is fantastic, and made the perfect "home base" for our daily expeditions around the city. Even better, it was incredibly quiet despite being in the center of everything, and we really appreciated that. Everything was perfect when we arrived: super clean, wireless connection a breeze to set up, plenty of closet space for our things, great bathroom, and a tidy little kitchen. The whole process of reserving the flat went without a hitch. I would definitely work with Isabelle again if I ever have the good fortune to return to Paris, and would certainly recommend her properties to my friends and acquaintances.

                We stayed at the Beaubourg for 9 days in Nov 2011. I've visited Paris numerous times and stayed in hotels and in rental apartments, and this was by far the best accommodations I've had, from the ease of booking and responsiveness of the landlord, as well as the quality of the apartment. The apartment itself was fantastic. Close to several metro lines and numerous major Parisian attractions, we were able to walk to several sites: the Marais, St Louis and Cite islands (Notre Dame/St Chappelle), as well as tons of great shops and restaurants (several bakeries on the block, a grocery right around the corner, and fromageries, butchers, fishmongers all very close). In addition to the location, the apartment had great amenities: free wifi, free calls to the US, washer/dryer and a nice kitchen if you feel like trying your hand at French cooking. There are thousands of apartments to rent in Paris, but what sets Isabelle apart is her responsiveness and the ease of the entire rental process, from booking through checkout. Isabelle responded to my initial inquiry on the apartment within hours. The fact that she accepts Paypal made the payment process quite easy (I've previously booked apartments with an agency that mandated a bank transfer, which was a huge hassle). Paypal converts from Dollars to Euros, so you don't get a currency conversion fee or any other transactions fees on your credit card. Picking up the key was a breeze, and when we discovered a small toilet leak, I called Isabelle and she had it fixed within a couple hours. After checkout, I had my full security deposit refunded to Paypal within 4 days. We were very impressed with the entire process of renting this apartment, and we plan on using Isabelle's apartments again the next time we visit Paris.

                My husband and I stayed at the Beauborg apartment in early October 2011 for 6 nights.The apartment is very comfortable and has everything you might need. It was clean and well maintained. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. The location was great, very central and easy walking to many sites. The neighborhood was colorful and busy but the apartment is on a quiet street. We always felt safe and were never bothered by noise. Isabelle was great to work with. She responded quickly to any questions and made the process easy. Our deposit was promptly returned. We enjoyed our stay in Paris and would highly recommend Isabelle and her apartment. We hope to return some day.

                The apartment is absolutely perfectly located. Pomidou a block away and easy walking distance to metro, great shopping and restaurants in Le Marais, Notre Dame etc. Apartment small and not luxurious but has everything one needs for a week in Paris. Isabelle is very organised and payments secure. Security deposit returned in record time. Highly recommend. Would certainly book with Isabelle again. A family of 3 Australians

                Larry and Carolyn Massachusetts USA Beaubourg Apartment from 25-Dec-2009 to 4- Jan-2010 We stayed at Isabelle's Beaubourg apartment over the Christmas and New Year's holidays. Reserving the place with our credit card was easy. The apartment location is a very popular area, near the Pompidou Center and the Rambuteau metro stop. The neighborhood is safe and abounds in restaurants and brassieres. A short walk brings you to many interesting sites like the Hotel de Ville and Les Halles and the rue de Rivoli. The apartment had a good heating system so that we were comfortable when the temperature outside was frigid. We were able to cook a stove-top meal with ingredients purchased in neighborhood stores. Also, there were plenty of patisseries for delicious European breakfast goodies. These goodies went well with the coffee we made in the apartment drip maker. We had a spacious closet and roomy bathroom with a good shower. All the comforts of home, right in the heart of Paris.

                My daughter and I stayed in the Beaubourg appartment for 16 days; 16 days before Christmas. We had a wonderfull time.We were in Paris several times before, but never this time of the year. Paris was fascinating! And there was snow..! The apartment is on a perfect location: near by the Marais, near by the metro, near by everything. Before I made the reservation I had my doubts. Why make a reservation through a French internetsite? Would it be safe? Now I can assure you: it IS safe and everything went fine. Next time I'll stay in Paris I'll contact Isabelle again! Puck and Marian The Netherlands
