Recent Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville) reviews
excellent location that works fine for a family of five
"This apartment worked fine for our family of five, although my three daughters used the living space as their bedroom so things were a little tight. However, the location is outstanding and makes up for the close quarters. Ile St. Louis affords a bit of quiet from the bustle of Paris, which we really valued. It was lovely to hear the bells of Notre Dame from the apartment! It was easy to deal with Nicolas in advance of our arrival and when we were there too. He was very responsive and speaks excellent English. He also graciously arranged for storage of our luggage for the day after we checked out and as we waited for a night train to our next location. One concern was that the washing machine in the apartment was broken. However, it was our first stop on a four city trip and so we didn't have too much laundry to do anyway. There also is no obvious place we would have put the wet laundry to dry, too. Be aware that there is no air conditioning, although that didn't bother us. As we were leaving Paris, however, it was predicated to be 102 F so we were happy to be heading elsewhere considering there was no air conditioning. Be aware too that the stairs to the apartment are winding and narrow and might be a problem for those not too agile. We were fine with them, however. We enjoyed the apartment and would rent it again. Its best feature is its location - central and close to everything yet quiet."

"Our family of five really enjoyed our Paris stay in this beautiful apartment
The details and information that the owner gave us enabled us to profit from the area and the location as soon as we arrived . Everything was perfect
We hope to return again soon"

"I have been to Paris about 15 times now and still find more new things to see and share. This time, it was a family group of 5: 2 grand-parents (age 60), mom, and two grand-daughters (ages 7 and 11). We had a wonderful stay at this flat and readily recommend it to anyone with a group of 5 or less. Six could be done but would be pushing it. Those with handicaps might want to pass as there are a couple of small stairs to navigate before getting to the elevator.
The flat is situated in the best part of Paris and surrounded by restaurants, bakeries, convenience shops, boutiques and more. The building's location and ambiance really let your feel like a native—far better than staying in a hotel. It was a 5 min easy walk to the nearest Metro (Pont Marie or Cite). We took Super Shuttle from the CDG airport and had no problems at all. If you plan to arrive early in the morning, I recommend checking with Jean-Noel to see if you can arrange early check-in. That worked well for us and avoided having to find a place to dump our luggage until normal check-in time.
Jean-Noel and his representative, Myriam and Yves, were superb hosts. Very prompt to respond and easy to work with. The flat itself was in immaculate condition, with everything we needed for sleeping, cooking, etc. A 220V --> 120 V converter is provided for those with US electrical equipment. Do NOT use US hair dryers or curling irons even with the converter (we found that out the hard way) but a 220V hair dryer is provided. Internet via WIFI is easy to use and with acceptable speed. The beds were very comfortable, even the pull out sofa.
Suggested things to do that are a bit off the normal lists include the catacombs (my 7 year old loved it), a tethered balloon ride in Andre Citroen park, and getting a family photo on the Bateaux Mouche boat ride when both the Statue of Liberty and Eiffle Tower are in the shot.
We look forward to returning to Paris and this flat."

"What a great apartment! Everything is as described in the photos and written portion. Very clean! We booked from Vancouver and everything was safe and easy. The metro station is right across the street, central location for our needs. Walking distance to Notre Dame from this Marais district. Marie's instructions were helpful and accurate. We had all we needed for our family of four (2 teenagers). Our deposit was also returned promptly. We would book again if we came to Paris. Thank you!"
