Guestbook Comment

  • 5 of 5

My husband, myself & young adult niece stayed at the apartment Sept 16th - Oct 5th. The location is great & the apartment was roomy, clean & charming. The neighbors in the building were very nice & friendly to us. We loved hearing the church bells & being near the church steps across the street where people often gather to rest & visit. Having the theater across the street was also fun. We felt like were in the center of things, but the apartment was quiet & peaceful. The bathroom is up a steep set of open steps, so might be challenging for some. Mr. Bartolmei & Mr. Dominque were wonderful to deal with --- very helpful, nice & honest. Mr. Dominque even arranged for an English-speaking computer technician to come over and help us when we experienced difficulty with our laptop picking up the wireless connection. Overall, a lovely experience!

Extraordinary flat in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Paris, & having such a great flat added to the experience! It's in a great location, close to many attractions, & gave us a real feel for the culture. We had quite a bit of rain, & having such a nice flat rather than just a hotel room was awesome!

Wonderful apartment in a great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Enzo is really easy to deal with. He responds very quickly and is very helpful in explaining everything. Miss Keys, who meets you when you arrive, shows you the apartment, gives you a walk thru, and then meets you when you leave/check-out is great.

The apartment is in the Marais -- a vibrant neighborhood, walkable to major sites, great markets, restaurants, and shops. The apartment is charming, and huge. There were only two of us, and it was more than enough room. We used the terrace for morning coffee, and some dinners, and it was fine even in mid-March. The kitchen is large -- great big table -- and very comfortable.

The layout of the apartment is a little odd. You will bump your head on the ceiling and/or a beam. If you enjoy taking baths, you will be ok. If like us, you prefer to shower, it takes some getting used to. You'll need to kneel, and use the hand-held shower hose. There is no shower curtain. You will definitely bump your head in the bathroom. Guys will have to duck/slouch while at the toilet -- the bathroom ceiling is very low. There are a lot of stairs to get to the apartment, and then up to the bedroom. Not a problem for us, but it's worth noting.

You really cannot beat the location. Google the address and door photo -- there is a very interesting history of the building and the street. Everything is exactly as described. We only used the upstairs bedroom, and the bed was large and comfortable. It was very convenient to have a washer and dryer in the apartment, and of course a full kitchen. Miss Keys explained the WiFi, and it worked very well the week we were there. No problems.

It's a warm, charming, quirky apartment in a great neighborhood, and I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Charming Apartment in the most interesting part of Paris

  • 5 of 5

This charming apartment is in the heart of the Marais district and offers every amenity (washer/dryer, fully appointed kitchen with appliances, TV, WiFi, phone, even guide books in English.) It is within walking distance (we are in our mid fifties and can't walk very far in a day) of the Bastille market, Picasso Museum, Norte Dame Cathedral and dozens of interesting shops and restaurants. The apartment layout is somewhat quirky, but has an interesting history of several tiny apartments joined together to make one, very roomy, place. Consequently, there are several places with low beams on which to bump your head, but they are 300 year old bits of wooden history, which makes up for it! If you need a break from each other, this apartment has six (counting the bathroom) separate spaces in which to retreat to be partially or completely alone. Try doing that in a typical hotel room! The lovely terrace was usable even in late October, and we sat out there every evening before dinner to catch our breath from the day's events and to enjoy a glass of wine. After seeing the tiny room that friends had booked at the local Hilton, we were even more appreciative of this spacious apartment.

Hands down, the best thing about this apartment rental was the manager, Enzo, who went out of his way several times to make sure that our stay was enjoyable. He accommodated our schedules, recommended restaurants, and was invaluable in helping us get mail. I lost my wallet in Los Angeles International Airport and hour before our flight, and needed to cancel all my cards and order replacements to be sent to us in Paris. Enzo helped facilitate the delivery of these cards, and we couldn't have done it without his assistance as the only French words we know are food related!

I would not recommend this apartment for someone with impaired mobility as there is no elevator/lift, but we were surprised to find that we didn't mind taking the stairs several times a day. A small price to pay in order to stay in the heart of Paris and pretend to be locals for a week. (smile and nod, avoid wearing garish colors and don fashionable shoes and you, too, can blend in!)

The barbaric attacks on Paris came a week after we left, but that WILL NOT deter us from happily booking this apartment again on our next visit.

Awesome apartment in Le Marais

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four spent 5 weeks in Paris this summer to immerse ourselves in the splendor of this grand city. Our terraced apartment in Le Marais was the perfect "home away from home". Spacious and comfortably appointed with a fabulous long rectangular wood table in the kitchen where we enjoyed many delicious meals and conversations. Living in the heart of Le Marais with its old world charm yet hip & modern personality was a fantastic experience. Excellent restaurants, cafes, shopping, galleries, museums, you name it, it's going on there. We biked and walked everywhere. The stairs to the apartment and inside the apartment helped keep us fit and healthy. Enzo, the manager, was kind and exceptionally helpful, from drawing maps to recommending local laundromats (for drying clothes faster), swimming pools and restaurants - even helping track lost parcels with the post office. Quick to respond to any inquiry, he was professional, reliable and pleasant. We

can't wait to return!

Charming home away from home

  • 4 of 5

I visited Paris for fashion week and enjoyed the convenient location of the apartment not only to the necessary destinations but also Le Marais' charming surroundings. It is in close proximity to the museums, shops, restaurants, and parks.

The apartment has a shabby chic feel, with lots of light and Windows throughout (even by the bathtub))..

I like that it is clean and lots of plants indoors and outdoors on the terrace.

The owner is a very nice man and accommodating to the guests requests. I highly recommend to stay in this apartment.
