The apartment is in a perfect central location with easy walking to major sites and metro.

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was exactly what I was looking for in a Paris flat - it has old world charm but is fully equipped with modern conveniences, and it is located in a quaint, central and lively neighborhood. Major sites (Notre Dame, the Louvre, Centre Pompidou, etc) and the metro are within easy walking distance. We found two grocery stores just around the corner. There are dozens of shops and restaurants only a stone throw away.

This place fully met our needs. As a group of 5, the three bedrooms, spacious living area, outdoor space and multiple bathrooms gave us plenary of room to live without being cramped, eat dinner together and sleep comfortably.

The stairwell appeared to be under remodel, but this was not something that bothered me.

My only comment for improvement would be better/more pillows as I am used to sleeping with two fluffy ones, but this is a personal preference and was not a big issue.

Great Location, Very comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay in the Marais apartment. Our stay was for almost 3 weeks. The beds and linens were comfortable and there were plenty of towels. (Good for a family of five)The furnishings were cozy and we were comfortable after a day of sight-seeing. There was an issue with the electricity in one of the bedrooms but Myriam was on it and had an electrician out to fix the same day. (Probably a 400 hundred year-old building…thing are quirky.) The kitchen was fine. We didn’t us it much except for breakfast and wine and cheese. We found the location ideal. Two groceries around the corners. A good bakery a block away. Less than a 5 minute walk from three Metro stations. There were more cafes and bars than we could try starting within 50 yards from the front door. Lots of boutique shopping within 15 minute walk. I will say this and maybe it’s just a summer thing but with the cafes and bars so close it can get a bit loud at night. If you are a light sleeper or have small children that it might be something to consider. We loved the atmosphere and energy…nothing like it at home. I would definitely stay again either at the Marais apartment or elsewhere that they manage. Extremely responsive.

Shabbier than implied by photos

  • 2 of 5

Entranceway a slummy disgrace. Furniture in living room mostly shabby and worn. Heater hanging on living room wall??? Chairs on walls for decoration??? AC--such as it was--a portable unit for the master bedroom only, required hooking up exhaust pipe, closing off window, then made more noise than cool air. Bathroom shared by master and second bedroom had no toilet--only a bidet, requiring trucking across apt. when needed. Patio nice to have but very noisy from neighbors' dogs and children. Other than toilet problem, good plumbing, very good shower for France. Apt. in great location--no argument there and nice to have so much space.

Owner's Response: Hi Jean, It is nice to hear you found the apartment to be in a great location. Thanks for your review, comments always help us to improve what can be. It seems the issue was decoration. Decoration is obviously a question of taste : the 3 previous reviews title contains “BEAUTIFUL APARTMENT”. You would certainly have preferred a modern style apartment. The apartment is in one of most central and oldest part of the city and, like all others, the building itself is centuries old. We cannot agree the furniture is shabby : by instance the living room sofa is less than one year old. All furniture has been selected with care : we may call it antiques. Electric heaters hooked along the wall are the common way to proceed in Paris. The A.C. is an add on. The A.C. itself being not a real split system, we have chosen not to advertise it. It comes as a plus for our guests. We are sorry you did not realize it was a plus. In Paris, toilet in apts is a recent addition (around 100 years ago  ) in buildings not built for. So owners had to rearrange and create some new rooms for them, wherever they could. It Is rare to have more than one even in big apts. More than 2 is extremely rare! Building entrance is being entirely refurbished. It will soon be totally new, mainly painting is missing now. To conclude on tastes, let me quote Holly’s review who stayed here in April : “Enchanting, beautifully appointed apartment! Comfortable beds and furniture. Fully stocked kitchen. Great design and lighting!” Do not hesitate to ask us for a more modern apartment if you come back to Paris, we will gladly propose you one as we also manage some. Sincerely, Jean

Beautiful apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying here for 5 days in April, 2018. The apartment was beautifully furnished and well-appointed. It is located in a lovely historic district within easy walking distance of many must-see spots. The surrounding neighborhood has many options for dining out and entertainment. The street in front of the building is for pedestrians, so there was not a lot of traffic noise. The apartment is on the second floor, so occasionally you could hear people below, but with fans going it was not a disturbance. It is an old building - no elevator, entryway is very basic -- but the apartment is wonderful.

Beautiful apartment as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Enchanting, beautifully appointed apartment! Comfortable beds and furniture. Fully stocked kitchen. Great design and lighting! Nice bathrooms. Easy to check in. We loved the location with amazing shops and restaurants all around - as well as metro and bus station. Right adjacent to the gorgeous La Tour St. Jacques, so you can use that as a landmark as you walk around and get oriented. Wonderful cooking school across the street. Everything in the apartment was in good shape. We were there for just 4 nights so we didn't use all of the amenities, but it was so nice to have the washer and dryer just in case. If you're a light sleeper and not used to being in a large city you may want to use a noise machine at night because the street noise can be loud. The steps are a little tricky so be patient getting your luggage upstairs.

Lovely time in Paris. Beautiful apartment. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at the apartment for our family vacation. The apartment was clean, well appointed, comfortable, and had every convenience you could possibly need. Everything was nicely thought out! The apartment was in a great area, close to shops, restaurants, and the metro. Also, it was very easy to communicate with the managers. I would highly recommend this apartment!
