The building was constructed 10 years ago so has a large elevator and good size rooms with no lost space and was designed to blend with neighbouring Haussmanian architecture.

The flat is minutes away from metro Republique (lines 3, 5, 8, 9, & 11), 12 minutes away from Rue de Bretagne with all its lovely food shops plus the oldest food market in Paris, Le Marché des Enfants Rouges (dated back to 1615), 20 minutes from Modern art museum: Beaubourg and 30 minutes from Hotel de Ville.

In the spring and summer evenings, the canal-side is a popular picnic place for local people, and aspiring musicians sometimes entertain the diners. Cafés and quirky boutiques flank the water, which is traversed by beautiful wrought-iron footbridges (remember the skimming stones in the opening shot of the movie 'Amelie”? this is where it was filmed).

There is an outdoor market along the canal in the direction of Bastille, which is open Thursdays and Sundays (largest market in Paris), the Bastille creative art market on the same location every Saturday. On Sundays, the streets directly alongside the canal, Quai de Valmy and Quai de Jemmapes, are reserved for pedestrians, roller-bladers and cyclists - perfect for renting a bike and seeing the city from a different perspective.

Another possibility is to take a tour of the canal by boat. Visitors of all ages should find something to love alongside the Canal Saint-Martin including numerous playgrounds along the canal going towards Bastille (15 minutes away). Try dinner in the excellent brasserie at Hotel du Nord, or the nearby La Marine, or a hearty feast at Bastille's Bofinger Restaurant. The famous Chez Prune cafe is also just 10 minutes walk along the canal.

Well located closed to Republique Place in front of Canal Saint-Martin. Nice flat, quiet, well furnished, closed to some bakery, Picard, small supermarket. We appreciated to be there - Main entrance with safety lock and underground parking in option (through a car lift). Overall nice organization for booking and local reception.

Clean. Well represented in the pictures. Great location.

  • 5 of 5

Just far enough away from the major tourist sites to allow for a more authentic local experience. The flat even had a champagne stopper! How perfect is that?

Perfect Paris apartment in great neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

We (two of us) stayed here for 12 days over Christmas and New Year's. From beginning to end, our stay couldn't have been better or more enjoyable. Cherline texted us just after arrival at the airport and met us at the apartment. She was completely professional, immensely helpful and quite welcoming. The apartment was perfectly prepared for our arrival.

We made breakfast every morning (it's also around the corner from a wonderful bakery) in the well-stocked kitchen and had the majority of our dinners in the apartment as well. The appliances, including the washer/dryer, were in perfect working order and the refrigerator was full-sized and more than large enough for all food needs. The coffee maker and espresso machine were an added bonus. There were plenty of dishes, glasses, silverware, pots, pans and utensils.

The layout of the apartment was ideal. Having the toilet separate from the shower was a nice feature. The apartment is incredibly quiet (a tiny bit of street noise, but nothing excessive) and there is more than enough room to spread out, whether relaxing or dining. The bed was incredibly comfortable, with lovely sheets, pillows and blankets.

Towels are provided and the shower was fantastic - easily the best water pressure we've ever experienced in France! And plenty of hot water.

The location is fantastic. It's in a neighborhood that (for now, at least) is low on tourists and results in a more Parisian experience. It's a very short walk to the Metro and there is a good grocery store on the other side of the canal. There are plenty of restaurants, boulangeries, patisseries and specialty food shops within a few blocks. Strolling along the canal made for a great walk. The heart of the Marais is very close and it's very convenient to and from the airport (CDG).

We would absolutely stay here again the next time we're in Paris. It is affordable, perfectly-sized, in excellent condition and in a terrific location. I can't recommend it enough.
