Exceptional Value, Bright, Spacious, Clean and centrally located, our guests have raved about this apartment ever since we opened 10 years ago.( Please browse Guest Comments to see for yourself) This gorgeous one-bedroom apartment of 55 square meters (600 sq. ft.) has undergone a complete renovation recently. It is located on rue Beranger, in the Third Arrondissement at the Place de la Republique, in the heart of Paris. Place de la Republique is a lively and bustling plaza with supermarkets, pharmacies, taxi stands, restaurants and everything else. Metro Republique is just steps away and is a hub for 4 metro lines, so you can reach any point of Paris with a short ride away.
If you dread the idea of schlepping your suitcases up a flight of narrow stairs as much as I do, then this ground floor apartment is ideal for you. ...and if you're a bit claustrophobic staying in a typical Paris hotel or studio/loft apartment (read tiny), then you'll appreciate the spaciousness and the high ceiling of this one. This apartment is located behind not one but two interior courtyards, so it's an oasis of calm amidst the hustle and bustle of the city. It is very safe as there is always plenty of shoppers and restaurant-goers about even quite late in the evening.
We've renovated this apartment by gutting it to bare walls and then rebuilt it tile by tile. It was done with the American traveller in mind, so it has all the comforts and conveniences you'd expect in a luxurious American apartment... the separate kitchen has a microwave , a refrigerator, dishwasher, 4 cook tops with oven, washer/ dryer as well as an eat-in area. The living room has a sofa and an arm-chair that folds out to sleep one, telephone, DSL Internet access and cable TV. The price is all inclusive, including the linens, so you won't get a surprise at the end of your trip. Indeed, this apartment would make an ideal stay for a couple, or a couple with a child.
The bedroom retains all the charms of a 19th Century mansion, with crown mouldings, fireplace, stain glass windows, 10 ft. ceiling, and original parquet floor. It has a queen-size bed and lots of closet space. In the tiled bathroom you can pamper yourself with a walk-in shower or a separate tub. This apartment can easily accommodate 3 persons. Please feel free to browse 'Guest Comments' below to get a feel of the apartment and get answers to some of the questions you may have. For your comfort, this is a SMOKE-FREE apartment. Children under ten years of age allowed with the permission of the owner. Please be advised that this is a self-catered limited service apartment. As such we will only provide linen service upon check-in, but not during your trip. We will have a contact person in case of any emergency. There is a binder with information on the use of appliances, tourist books on Parisien restaurants and sights to see. We will give you a web site if you need theater bookings, guided tours, etc.
Lastly, be sure to visit La Jeune Rue on rue du Vertbois, which is a leisurely 5 minute walk from the apartment. La Jeune Rue has been described as the intersection of delicious food and high design recently unveiled to great fanfare to the Parisien public. Please google recent New York Times and Wall Street Journal articles describing this new epicurean village.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THE PRICES QUOTED ARE IN AMERICAN DOLLARS.
My wife and I fell in love with Paris the first time we visited in 1986, and ever since then, we have come back again and again to this magical city. We decided to buy an apartment in 2004. After several months of intense work, we were able to call our little corner of Paris home.
The Owner purchased this apartment in 2004
We love all of Paris but we are especially enchanted with Marais, with its many small boutiques, restaurants, one-of-a-kind stores. The apartment is within walking distance of the center of Marias, but is also close to the Metro Republique, where 5 metro lines intersect. It is therefore a hop and a scotch to all Paris.
We stayed in this wonderful apartment from October 1 to October 10. It was everything that was described and we loved it. We pretended we were Parisians and the apartment encouraged our fantasies. Having been to Paris many times before, it was not necessary to see and do all the touristy things. However, there was no lack of convenience in the transportation department. The Metro is only steps away and there is a taxi stand adjacent. There is a supermarket within easy walking distance. It is very close to the Republic Square. The square is chock full of restaurants, pastry shops, a creperie and shops. Our favorite little restaurant was right across the small street, Foug. They are Italian and the staff is wonderful. Remembered our favorite wine and poured it as we walked though the door. Wonderful food. We also liked Cafe Pierre which was a short walking distance. The apartment was spacious and very homey. It is in the rear of a very private courtyard and totally free of noise. I would highly recommend this property.
I am pleased to write a review for this property but I am somewhat reluctant at the same time. I would do nothing but rave about the location and setting and faun over the apartment itself. It is exactly as described by the owner: comfortable, quiet, and centrally located with ready transportation to anything a vacationer is likely to be doing in Paris. We immediately made friends with the staff at nearby La Barav which became our "goto" restaurant and chill-out locale. The patisserie at the corner soon knew I would be there early every morning for fresh-baked bread. Most important, though, is that we came and went quietly and easily at all hours and felt as though we were living in Paris, not just visiting. I worry, though, that once the word is out (and I fear it might already be) about this exceptional pied-à-terre that it might not be available when I am ready to return to Paris (soon I hope).
This unit is exactly as described. We had everything we needed. So close to bakery and mono prix that you can walk out, buy croissants, and walk back all before the coffee's done. Very quiet, even though close to a lot of activity. Being on ground floor makes it a bit darker than upper floors, but we were out for most daylight hours. Plus we enjoyed the convenience of not climbing stairs with bags. The kitchen, however, was very bright and pleasant. There are security shutters on the other windows, which we did not open. We just opened the inside windows, which gave us good ventilation. Plus, we were out for most of the daylight hours. Everything was clean and ready for us on arrival. The instructions for getting to the apartment and unlocking it were beautifully detailed (including useful pictures!) and made for a no-stress start of the trip. Recommendations for getting back to the airport were also spot-on. We have already recommended this property to friends.
We are just about to leave your lovely apartment after a very enjoyable brief stay in Paris. We were delighted to find that it matched your description on the Internet- and it was indeed very quiet - we couldn't hear the noisy demonstrations up at Republique but we saw plenty of police vans and riot squad police as we came home , in fact there were 6 of them at the entrance to our street last night. Makes you feel quite safe here!
It was lovely to have things like plastic wrap, salt and pepper etc in the cupboard and we also appreciated the well equipped kitchen.
In short, we loved staying here and would love to return one day.
We had a great stay at this apartment over Easter weekend. The owner was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. The apartment is located right next to a major metro station, but is also a lovely walk to the main sights. There are so many great restaurants and shops in this area. We can't wait to stay here again soon!
Larry is a very gracious property owner. Having traveled to 35 countries, I found his service to be exceptional and considerate and one of the best! His apartment is very conveniently located, very modern, very spacious and includes all the needed amenities. You cannot ask for a better place and price.
