We had stayed a week in this lovely apartment. There were everything we needed in this apartment. The host "Alexandra" is very kind. We had a great time in this area, a lovely park,a outdoor market,a chees shop and a bakery etc.. We hope to stay Alexandra's lovely and comfortable apartment again for our next travel in Paris.
We had an amazing time staying in Paris the 2nd week of July, 2015. We loved the Marais district and our apartment was lovely. It was exactly what we needed and it was lovely to have our own kitchen when we wanted to eat in. We loved the ambiance and that it faced into the courtyard and away from the street noise so it was very quiet at night. There was also a nice breeze coming in through the windows even on the warmest evenings. There are several cafes within a very short distance and we ate at most of them - delicious food and excellent people watching. We found it was easy to walk everywhere even though we were only a few blocks from the Metro. The location of this apartment made it possible with about a 15 - 20 minute walk from the Seine and City Hall and Notre Dame was 5 minutes beyond that on the other side of the Seine. We also had a very easy walk to the Louvre about 30 minutes away. We will definitely be back and look forward to exploring the rest of Paris with many return trips in the years to come.
Our stay could not have turned out better. The apartment was lovely, and the location was ideal for our short holiday in Paris. It had everything we needed and was really warm and welcoming.
The area is central and really lively, and you can find anything you need there. If you are looking for a nice café, that is easy... there are plenty around. Alexandra -who was a lovely host- recommended that we try Nanashi, which is a great location to eat at. Really fresh and good, a must ! But even though the district is full of life, the apartment is still really calm since it is on a courtyard and not on the street.
Little bonus : it looked as if the apartment had been renovated, everything looked brand new and was sparkling clean.
My husband and I stayed in this apartment on our first vacation in Paris. After walking through almost every Arrondissement in Paris we agreed it was one of the nicest areas in Paris. It has some great local restaurants and stores and a nice residential feel at the end of some long days of sight seeing. We were able to walk to almost any area of Paris from the apartment and also used the very efficient Metro with many stations close by. The apartment had everything we needed for the few hours we spent in it, but is a little less perfect than the photos show. Alexandra answered all my email but sometimes took several days to respond. If you just need a clean place to sleep this apartment is a good value for your money in a great location in Paris.
My husband and I stayed here for a week in July 2013. The apartment was perfect for us, but I can't quite give it 5 stars.
Alexandra was very easy to communicate with and very responsive. We had a hard time finding the correct front door of the building and she answered our call at midnight to help us get inside.
The apartment size is as advertised, and is everything we needed. WIFI worked great and the windows are configured in a way that allows for great air flow through the apartment. All windows face the inner courtyard, so we left them open all day and night to keep it cool. Because they face the courtyard it stays pretty quiet. The temperature was average while we were there in July, but if there was a heat wave then it might be a bit warm.
The location is great and very convenient. Close to metro, bus and velo bike racks. We had a really easy time getting everywhere we wanted to go.
The only negative I have is the condition of the apartment when we arrived. There was a lot of long black hair everywhere (floor, shower, sink, and in the bedding), and the bathroom and floors did not appear to have been cleaned. We just did a little sprucing up and all was good.
This is a nice apartment in a truly excellent location. It's only a block from the famous Jacques Genin chocolate shop at 133 Rue de Turenne, and the bakery next door called 134 RdT, while not the most creatively named establishment, provided the best baguettes we've ever tasted (they won second place in the annual Paris baguette competition). Half a block away is the Les Enfants Rouges outdoor market, with some amazing food stalls, particularly the Moroccan place.
We had to pick up our key at Cafe Charlot downstairs; this wound up being confusing because I didn't pay enough attention to Alexandra's directions about which key it was. The bartender didn't know, and they have the keys to dozens of apartments nearby. So read the instructions carefully because you might not be able to get to your email when you don't remember!
Cafe Charlot is incredibly popular, but we weren't impressed with it since they serve American food, and something about it got lost in translation.
We wound up spending most of our time in Paris actually in the apartment. I would not recommend this, but we got very sick, first with food poisoning (due to overindulgence in Lyon, I suspect) and then with a cold. Since we had a week of travel planned after leaving Paris with conveyances booked, we decided to hunker down and try to recover. So I can report that the internet worked well for watching TV, but I would have rather been out exploring. Still, we fell in love with Paris and we are already plotting our return.
Due to spending so much time in the apartment, we did think one thing that could be improved would be to have brighter lights in the main living area. If you were only there to sleep it wouldn't be a problem, but with the dim lights and the dark paint on the walls and dark floor, it's really a bit too cavelike for hanging out for an extended period of time.
We used the laundry machine quite a bit. Like all European washers it takes a very long time to wash a load of laundry compared to your typical American machine. 4 or 5 times as long. It's also much too loud to run at night and it probably would bother the downstairs neighbor because of the vibration. So you should plan ahead if you're going to use it and start a load before you head out for your activity of the day. The heated towel rack proved very useful for drying clothes quickly.
We used the range to cook some soup and also to make French Toast since you can't seem to actually find that in France.
