Recent Paris Arr. 4 (Marais, Hotel de Ville) reviews
Excellent 1-Bedroom Apartment in the Marais
"My husband and I loved staying in this apartment! It was spacious but cozy at the same time. Marie was great, and she gave wonderful suggestions on supermarkets and other important things in the area that helped us during our stay. We truly love staying in the Marais. It is so trendy and within walking distance to many shops, sites, cafes, etc. Even late at night, we were able to find something to eat. The apartment is also in a great and safe location, very close to two Metro stops (Hotel de Ville and Rambuteau). We loved staying there and would recommend this apartment to anyone. The only thing is that if you are not looking to climb a lot of stairs, it may be difficult. My husband and I enjoy walking a lot, so it wasn't a problem at all for us. Otherwise, this is a great Paris home-away-from home for anyone!"

"Second time staying (would've been third though someone beat us to it), and I can't recommend more highly. This is a really great apartment minutes from St. Paul station on the M1 Metro line - which for connectivity I believe to be the best. Also a taxi rank by the metro. The apartment overlooks a nice, quiet courtyard, has bedrooms separated by a living room (a great layout), and for the price cannot be beat. My company has been visiting Paris for 10+ years in connexion with Paris Fashion Week, so we've stayed in a lot of apartment. This is by far the best."

"This convenient, clean and well-equipped apartment is in the perfect location for a Great family vacation in Paris. The island is safe and lovely to walk around – – No worries for our two children and is very relaxing to come home to. The kitchen, appliances, and bathroom where all very nicely done and easy to use. The pull out coach really was comfortable and the window view to the street was sweet. Being just above the cheese shop and the boulangerie made it easy to get yummy food, waking up and walking downstairs for baguette and croissant was very convenient. And the store across the street had fruit and other necessities. The location is perfect because you can get anywhere easily. It's an easy one flight up to the apartment. It feels very secure and is centrally located in Paris. It was nice coming home to a quiet island, walking across a beautiful bridge from wherever we were. Notre Dame at night is an easy stroll, and always breathtaking. The cafés on the island were great, and there are several great restaurants and of course the famous ice cream store. We loved being there.
When large groups of tourists or partygoers walk by you can hear them in the front room. Which really just adds a nice ambience to the place. In general the street is quiet and calm. And if you're in the back bedroom you can't hear any street noise, although there is a regular noise maybe from a refrigerator compressor from the cheese shop down below. I had no trouble sleeping through that. The guys who own this are very nice. I dealt with both Isaac and Sam who were very responsive and sweet. Isaac came and showed us how to use the heating, air conditioner, dishwasher, TVs, washing machine, stove, oven and music system (you can plug your cell phone in to the speakers). All very easy. We would all go back again in a second."

"My husband and I have spent two vacations at Alina's apartment, once for two weeks, and most recently for one week. The first time, we were accompanied by one other person. This time, there were five of us - all "60-ish".
The location speaks for itself, but I must add that the convenient central location made it a delight to visit all the requisite sites without a car. Metro and bus stops are close by, but for most of what we did, we just walked. And of course, there are many wonderful restaurants and shops in the immediate area.
The apartment was wonderful! Some highlights:
- Even though our early-spring visits weren't as sunny as we might have wished, the enormous garden patio (accessible through several French doors) was a nice, quiet refuge when we needed time away from the city.
- Everything we needed to prepare the few meals we had in the apartment was available to us. The kitchen is small by bloated US standards, but was perfect (and well-equipped) for our needs.
- Three separate bedrooms provided us each with sufficient privacy, while the living room and dining area were very comfortable when we came together.
- The apartment is on the ground floor, but entry to it is secured by three locking doors. That's a great combination of convenience and security.
And, finally, our experiences with the owner of the apartment were easy and top-notch. Though not residing in Paris, Alina was easy to reach and had several local people available to us for assistance. She was always very helpful and accommodating to our needs. Thank you, Alina, for your kindness and for sharing your wonderful apartment with us!"
