Two studios in duplex, 2 Baths, 2 WC,(Sleeps 1-5)

The apartments are situated on a 4 and 3 floor with (elevator). It's composed of 2 studios in duplex which are not connected but close enough to easily communicate.

Each studio has its own phone which allow calls between them.

The building is on the enchanting little square of Bourg Tibourg with its restaurants, coffee shops with terraces where people like to spend time talking, eating or enjoying the sunshine. There is a great selection of bakeries, cheese markets, wine and all kinds of food markets in the best French tradition nearby and even a farmer’s market will be at your door step twice a week.

Very conveniently located, near all transportation, but mostly you will not need them since more of Paris attractions are in a walking distance. Only a few steps to the Seine River and Notre Dame Cathedral.

Building is protected with access code and intercom and the area is very safe.

The apartment is 48 sq. meters (24 + 24) duplex on the 3 and 4 floor. Both levels are connected by an easy flight of stairs outside the apartment (inside the building). Because of this, it's not suitable for family with small children.

Each studio is provided with full kitchen, small but very efficient and practical, with a stove, regular oven, microwave, refrigerator, etc. Washer/Dryer. Dining table for 4 persons. Ceiling fan. Air conditioning. Bathroom with combination bathtub and shower, WC, sink.

There are two big double paneled windows in each floor looking over the small street of “Mauvais Garcons”. The apartment is quiet for the center of Paris and very bright.

So close to all the Paris attractions!

VRBO Bear stayed here

Apr 6, 2015

I was headed to Paris to see the sights, eat the food, and drink the wine. This property was in a perfect location to do all of that and more! We were greeted by Barbara and her team as we entered the building. A cute elevator provides easy access to both apartments. Barbara and the team showed us the ropes and we were off! Perfect for one or two people, the third floor apartment had everything we needed, wanted, and even dreamed! A private bathroom stocked with the necessities, a Murphy bed to easily pull down for the night, and a small but immensely functional kitchen to brew my morning coffee. If you prefer, you can go downstairs to the awesome restaurants and get your coffee there. The fourth floor apartment had a very similar layout. One floor up and directly above the third floor apartment, the apartment was stocked with its own necessities. Equally clean and well-maintained, this apartment also came with a large flat screen TV that was mounted to the wall. Both apartments had tables for dining, couches for leisure, WIFI for browsing, cable TV for watching, books for reading, and more. We definitely appreciated everything offered. The best trait is the location! So close to attractions, like the Notre Dame Cathedral, on top of great food, and in the Marais district, we kept busy for days and, if given time, would still be exploring the area. Many, many, many thanks, or should I say ‘Merci beaucoup, beaucoup, beaucoup’, to Barbara, her team, and the owner for allowing us to stay here. This property is highly recommended for your next trip to Paris!

Excellent! 4.3/5 -

Excelente ubicación, muy contentos

Son dos apartementos independientes que cumplen a la perfección con su cometido, para una estancia de varios días en París los recomiendo totalmente por su ubicación. También comentar que no tuvimos ningún problema con la gestión de la llegada y salida de los apartamentos.

Manager nowhere to be found upon arrival. Even after severe warnings of us being charged if we were late, this guy didn't show up. Nor did he contact me before to tell me he was sending a woman. We arrived, I did exactly what I was told to do (call when on route). Left several voicemails, I'm fluent in French. I'm not sure what you would have done were you not. This was 11:20; 11:30 am. We waited and waited and waited. I called and e mailed owner and her manager several times. I was ready to go get a hotel room and fight about this later when a woman showed up who I finally guessed was somehow connected. She spoke very little French, no English. We communicated mostly in sign language and broken French. At 1pm, I finally had keys in hand and she left. She was very kind. I got my brother, who I had left in the downstairs café and we went up to the apartments. I stayed on 3; he on 4. (4 is nicer and roomier). I had no toilet paper, no soap, light bulbs burnt out. It was as if no one had been there for a while. 4th floor had half a roll of to, more burnt out bulbs and broken toilet seat. It was weird. I've rented a lot of VRBO. This seemed as if we were a burden. The manager finally e mailed me saying he had left the country and had sent his assistant... (Lotsa people running this place). He said he'd reimburse me when he came by for final check(?). That never happened. I left receipts and took pictures. We'll see..

So, enough about that. Just be warned... The location is excellent. I love the Marais. Easy public transport access and walking to many great places from Bourg Tibourg. But, after this experience, I'd stay elsewhere. There are hundreds of places to stay in the area. And this accueil left a lot to be desired. I'm sorry to give a 3, but I just can't go higher. (3rd floor shower hose needs replacing. I tried everything to get it to work. It leaks. While at BHV housewares, I almost bought a new one, but I wasn't staying long enough to replace everything that needed it.

PS a bottle of water in the fridge might be a good idea?

Owner's Response: Below is the mail I sent you as soon as I got your message. It would have been nice if of you to mention that I gave you a 10% discount off your price and that you have been reimbursed for any item that you have buy. Nevertheless, you are right, the manager should have taking care of that toilet seat and, most important, should have been there for the check in. I tried to contact him without success. I have now a new manager. Yesterday, I got a mail from the manager. He is in Tunisia for the funeral of his mother who died after a long illness. PS.-They were replacements light bulbs in the apartment. Dear Elizabeth, I am so sorry for your inconveniences. You are totally right and I can't but apologize. It's all first news to me. I never knew M. Loussaief left the country and sent someone else.Of course, it should have been toilette paper and soap and replacement light bulbs! I will be in Paris next Saturday and, be sure, I will confront the manager. Would it be possible for you to forward me the e-mail he sent you? Please, let me know how much was the bills for whatever you needed to buy and I will reimburse you. I will also sent you a 10% discount on your price for your troubles. Your security deposit will be reimburse to you from VRBO/HA on January 13. I will forward their e-mail on that. Again, please, accept my apologies for the inconveniences. I hope they did not prevent you for having a great time in Paris. Best regards, Isabel

Nous sommes restés cinq nuits dans ce superbe appartement situé dans le Marais. Très propre, confortable et avec une localisation parfaite, cet appartement a été un atout majeur au sein de notre voyage á Paris. On le recommande fortement.

Perfect location and fantastic flat!

  • 5 of 5

This was my 6th trip to Paris and this was by far the best location I have ever stayed in. The studios were both clean, efficient, and well stocked! The beds were very comfortable. Having a washer/dryer was a bonus. We will definitely be going back! The manager was extremely helpful and accommodating. Thank you for making our stay perfect!

Con todo lo necesario, mejor que en las fotos y muy limpio. Fuimos rapidamente atendidos en todas las informaciones. Perfecto para pasear por el Paris mas romantico. A unos minutos de retaurantes, supermercados, transportes.

Wonderful location

  • 3 of 5

Our stay in Paris was facilitated by the great location of our stay. Our accommodations were smaller than we expected, but well equipped. All we needed for our stay was provided. The owner responded very quickly to any communications. However, the manager was less than welcoming.
