Recent Paris Arr. 3 (Marais, Picasso Museum) reviews
Great location, very Parisian apartment
"Apartment is in a good location, comfortable and for the most part quiet. WI-FI worked fine and kitchen was suitable and easy to use. The courtyard is a nice plus and the tiny elevator is helpful for loading suitcases. The only reasons I cannot give it a 5-Star is the master bathroom which is a liability attorney's dream come true. The design involves a "cat walk", a sunken tub and polished floors that turn into a skating rink when wet. I suffered a fall a week before and was happy to see a hand rail getting into the tub/shower, but the remodel design is ill-conceived. We were greeted by a friendly manager who didn't speak any English, so there was confusion. My Spanish came in handy somewhat since she spoke Portguese. Still, since there were no written instructions (Landlords you really need to do that) which tell you the closest place to buy groceries, pharmacy, and closest metro, we wasted time searching for items we needed. We were both recuperating from the flu, so our energy levels weren't great.
Despite all this, we would recommend the place unless you have balance issues or aren't agile. It is very Parisian and we absolutely loved The Marais neighborhood.
Do go to the best chocolatier in Paris nearby: Josephine Vannier's at 4 Rue du Pas de la Mule, a few blocks from the park."

"First, booking and payment were very well managed. The manager was very good with communications before, during and after our arrival. Instructions for check in were easy to follow.
A group of 4 stayed here, including 1 couple and 1 teenager. It was perfect for our needs. The apartment is indeed up 4 flights of stairs, so you can work off all the baguettes and pain au chocolates you'll be eating! The loft area was perfect for our nephew. There is only 1 bathroom, and we had some trouble with the plumbing. A combination of a running toilet and a bathtub that wouldn't drain was discouraging, but of course, by the time we called our contact to report it, the problem rectified itself and we had no further problems. I think we used almost every appliance in the apartment and found the manuals to be helpful.
The location was convenient and felt safe. There is a bakery a few doors down and a grocery store (Carrefour) a few blocks up, next to a metro stop. The Pompidou is a few blocks down the street along with many cafes. There are also a few cute passageways nearby.
I would stay here again and would also recommend to friends and family."

"My husband and I stayed here with our three teenage/young adult sons and were all very comfortable. The apartment is clean and well equipped, along with a book explaining how to work everything in the apartment, complete with pictures (VERY helpful!). There were also many guide books. The location is phenomenal, we walked everywhere but also had quick access to the metro and bus lines. Being on the Pompidou Centre was a lot of fun, and we loved watching the Eiffel Tower light up at night. Bertrand was very attentive by email, and Irena was awesome to us. I would not hesitate to stay here again and highly recommend it. Not all VRBO properties are so great, this one IS!"

"Before I booked our stay, I was very impressed by all the great reviews and must say that this apartment and our hostess Brigitte more than lived up to our high expectations. The apartment is beautiful, the beds comfortable and we (my 81 year old father and two sisters) felt immediately at home (Brigitte and her family live in this apartment in the off season, so it is their actual home). We took full advantage of the kitchen and washing machine (all appliances worked perfectly) and Brigitte's help in booking taxis and making restaurant choices. In the middle of our stay -- while we were on a 2-day trip to Normandy -- Brigitte cleaned the apartment and gave us all new towels and fresh sheets (including beautiful linens that were more than a hundred years old). The apartment is almost perfectly situated for sight-seeing and, on Sundays, the Marais is closed to all vehicle traffic except for taxis and residences -- a great time for walking around, shopping and joining the street party. We feel very fortunate to have found this special place, and hope we can return one day."
