Great place in a historic apartment in a great location with a great host. Absolutely loved it!!
We stayed for a month in Pierre's apartment. Highly recommend if someone is looking to stay at a great location and hosted by a great, understanding, helping host who would go out if his way to help. For example, after staying at Pierre's apartment, we were to leave Paris for two weeks on an Italian and Spanish tour. We did not want to carry all the luggage and Pierre happliy agreed to store them for us for 2 weeks.
The apartment is well connected to Metro as well as bus. Bus number 69 (recommended by Rick Steves) had a stop at less than 200 meters from Pierre's place. If you want to stay close night life, bingo. The Bastille night life with 24/7 restaurants and pubs are 4-5 minutes walk from Pierre's apartment.
Place des Vosage is across the street and Gare de Lyon is 3 stops away.
Again, we highly recommend and would love to stay again here.
Great location, but needs some TLC
Overview: This apartment in the Marais district is in a great location near shops, restaurants, and two Metro stations, but is not very well maintained.
First - the great parts.
Just a few steps to the Place des Vosges, with two little grocery stores across the street, and cute shops, several museums, restaurants and cafes nearby, this place is in a great, safe location. It's also close to two Metro stations on different lines so it's easy to get to lots of different parts of the city. Easy walk (20 minutes) to Notre Dame and Ile St Louis, Ile de la Cite.
And as advertised, the apartment is in an old, historic building with huge tall ceilings and cool exposed beams. Plenty of space and at least one of the beds was very comfortable. The other was moderately comfortable. The towel heater in the bathroom was fantastic.
Now - the not-so-great parts.
Even for an old city apartment (ie, I wasn't expecting a pristine, shiny, new place) this place was not very well maintained. The refrigerator did not work at all and when I asked the landlord he told me, "It's not really my fridge... look on the back for a button to see if you have to push something." So, no milk in the fridge for coffee or saving any leftovers for us. Several of the lights did not work and some of the fixtures didn't even have bulbs or were dangling by wires. The bathroom shower ceiling was very low and mildewed (probably from the handheld shower hitting it all the time) which was kind of icky for my tall son.
Also, we were there in February during a cold spell and the heaters in the apartment simply were not sufficient to keep the place warm. For the first two days we had to sit right in front of the heater to stay warm - so we didn't want to hang out there at all. Fortunately, the bedcovers were cozy enough to keep us warm while sleeping.
RECAP: Nice enough in warm months if you aren't looking for a pristine condition spot. Good location for safety and mobility.
Charming,funky, great neighborhood, easy access to Metro
This turned out to be a great little apartment for our two week stay in Paris. Wonderful restaurants and the Place des Vosges all within 6 blocks or so...easy to get to 3 Metro stops within a 5 minute walk.The T-v is quirky, we didn't have much time to watch anyway. Very do-able kitchen area...you have to get used to the mezzanine bedrooms. The bathroom could use a bit of updating..but it worked well for our purposes. People watching from the living room window is great..and the neighborhood quiets down considerably after 9 or 10, so the nights are relatively quiet. Pierre is easily contacted..and is a great help for anything you need or have questions about. Resturant L'Ange 20, directly across the street is top notch.We would absolutely stay here again!If The Musee de Picasso..a short walk away is a must see..although 2 of the floors are closed for renovation. Be aware that the Musee Carnavalet is closed until sometime in 2018. Also..take time to visit the Bastille Farmers Market (Sun and Thurs.) and the Craft /art market there on Saturday.Great fun!
The only reason I wouldn't give this a full 5 stars(please add 1/2 star to the 4 above) is the somewhat quirky bathroom and the mezzanine access to the beds.
Week in Paris
We were very happy with the property.Pierre was a very nice man,and helped us with the luggage.We were very comfortable.
Wonderful location.Great shops and restaurants within walking distance.
I would be happy to stay here again.Thanks Pierre
This is our second stay at this lovely apartment. Really perfect location in a wonderful neighborhood. Great shops, amazing restaurants and the beautiful Place de Vosges all within easy walking distance, as well as many museums and points of interest. Accessible to all parts of Paris and beyond via the Metro (short walk to Chemin Vert or Bastille stations). Lovely apartment with plenty of room and lovely views of a typical Parisan neighborhood. Easy commute to and from airport. Highly recommend if you wish to feel like a "local" during your visit.
Excellent apartment in the Marais.
This apartment is ideally located near two Metro stops and several cafe's on a great little street in the Marais. My husband, daughter, niece and myself spent a wonderful Christmas week here. The apartment was the perfect size. We never felt crowded and Pierre was incredibly easy to work with. Would recommend to anyone and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
