This is an exceptionnal setting considering that most buildings are at the same height in paris ( usually 6 to 7 floors) . you are at the 9th floor ( 10th american ) and above the city line. so plenty of day light . the building is on a dead end street . so no street noise .
your nearest metro is richard lenoir on line 5 ( less than 5 minutes ) but saint sebastien froissard on line 8 and saint ambroise on line 9 are just a couple more minutes walking so very easy to get around. The bastille square with its metro hub and its busy night life is a 5 minutes walk. Le marais is also a 5 minutes walk .
The building has 2 elevators and is very secure.
There is an underground parking space which is directly reachable from the apartment with an elevator and which can be rented at the same time for an additional cost of 10 euro per night.
The apartment whose full renovation was terminated in 2012 consists of a main room with a fully equipped kitchen, a bathroom with a large shower and a separate toilet with basin and 2 separate bedrooms with their own individual access. one bedroom has a king size bed (180 cm by 200 cm or 72 inches by 80 inches) and the other bedroom has a pair of twin beds (each 90 cm by 200 cm or 36 inches by 80 inches). the living room has a new fold out sofa with a very comfortable fold out bed ( 140 cm by 200 cm or 56 inches by 80 inches).
a bright new a/c system was installed in august 2013 throughout the apartment.
The apartment is furnished with beautiful 1950 period art deco furniture and is totally surrounded by a large balcony.
The apartment comes with free phone to 80 countries including north America and Australia, free WiFi, free cable TV.
The all-inclusive weekly rental fee covers quality linens and towels.

Very comfortable, spacious and a brilliant view.
Everything was great. Some tiny imperfections, but very good. Not cheap, however, and being charged an additional 15.50 euros to cover the bank transfer was not good, and also being told to take the trash down to the basement before leaving, when we were paying a large cleaning fee was very unfair.
Attractive apartment with great access to the Metro
We enjoyed a week in this apartment with tremendous views of Paris. It is clean and well maintained and had a very well equipped kitchen. I would highly recommend it!
Canadian in Paris
The apartment was in a great location with lots of natural light. There were five of us stayed here comfortably. Close to metro and grocery stores. There could have been more water and drinking glasses in the kitchen and some soap and amenities in the toilet and shower. Lots of CDs but no CD player. We would stay here again!
we will check the glasses . we provide dish soap, dishwasher soap and laundry soap but we ask our tenants to bring their own toiletries
Perfect location and space for family vacation
We had a great in stay in August with a family of five - 2 college and one teen. Everything was as represented. Great location, spacious, clean, and very secure building. Terrace was awesome. Quiet setting and a/c worked very well. Olivier (property manager) was pleasant to deal with and we had no problems. Would highly recommend to others.
Light-filled retreat in the 11th
Wonderful family vacation week in Paris. All the conveniences Americans love (a/c, washer/dryer, dishwasher) in chic apartment with expansive views. The location is excellent as described by my husband's Paris colleague: "Being on the Rue Pelee, you're well located, between the upper Marais, cool yet working-class 11/12th, and by the canal (albeit covered at that stage; it's called Boulevard Richard-Lenoir there), should be just a little quieter than the Marais, etc., yet is still central to a lot of different things." We appreciated how easy it was to get to all the major sites and still being able to get away from the tourist hordes. Good meals and shops in the area and 3 different metro lines in easy walking distance. Also a bus that goes directly to the Louvre and the Orsay.
We enjoyed coming "home" many evenings to prepare food purchased at the markets. Kitchen is very well stocked with pots and pans, dishes, glasses etc.
Only hiccup was brief trouble contacting Olivier upon arrival due to a new device he was using. However, this was quickly rectified and he was extremely responsive for the rest of our stay.
I would highly recommend this apartment and owner!
Comfortable beds and quiet. Good A/C. Other than that, a little under-whelming..
The beds were very comfortable and the A/C worked great. It was also very quiet. The apartment is a little less charming than the pictures reflect, mostly due to the smaller details. Specifically, the ceiling of the restroom is covered in mildew, and none of the various charming looking lamps that you see in the living room work. We stayed for a week and the hot water only worked about 1/2 the time. A lot of cold showers. The washer worked well. The dryer did too AFTER we figured out that you have to empty a water collection tank periodically. We were not familiar with this, because dryers in U.S. are vented to the exterior and don't require tanks. We found ourselves needing to use the metro far more often than we would have liked, but that is probably our fault for not researching the location well enough when we booked. The apartment is about a 30 minute walk from the nearest major site (Notre Dame), with other sites like the louvre and Eiffel Tower out of reach by foot for all but the most ambitious of hikers. We needed to take the metro 2 or 3 times every day. You'll want to do your best to be accurate and prompt with the checkin time you arrange with the host. We communicated our ETA to him a couple of times as our travel day unfolded. In the end, we arrived 45 minutes later than we had planned and the host seemed a little smug about it. Also, the payment terms were very confusing and overly complicated. The HomeAway posting explains the rates one way, then after booking, we received a contract from the host that was broken down differently, then when we met the host in person to pay him in cash, he crunched the numbers a third way! In the end the total charges were correct to the Homeaway posting (+/- a few dollars) but it was definitely disconcerting to get lost in his methods, and have to just trust that it would shake out correctly. All and all the stay was just "okay."
The location has been appreciated by many of our tenants due to its proximity of the Marais (historic center of Paris) and of Oberkampf’s lively area. It is 5 minutes’ walk from the Picasso museum and 15 from the Pompidou modern art museum. It is true however that the Eiffel tower is further away (30 minutes by metro).
But we do value customer service and are sorry we did not show you the wall switches that monitor the beautiful lamps. The moist in the bathroom is due to a leak from the roof top which has been repaired but is awaiting to dry off before repainting can be done.
