Fully renovated early summer 2014, this apartment was designed with your needs and comfort as our number one priority.

The apartment is very comfortable and well appointed. Two bathrooms with large showers and two bedrooms (one with a queen bed and the second one either a second queen or two single beds). The living room is great for re-grouping after a long day of visiting. There is an open kitchen that is well adapted for sharing a nice meal and the breakfast nook will make your meals very cozy!

TRANSPORTATION:

The nearest Metro stations are Jacques Bonsergent (ligne 5) and Republique (line 3, 5, 8,,9, 11) giving you easy access to place de la Concorde, Opera, Bastille, etc.)

In the street, you have also Velib station to rent bikes 

LOCATION:

It is perfectly located-- steps away from the Canal St Martin (a hip neighborhood perfect for those tourists who are looking for a more local experience) and a 5 minute walk from a major hub, Republique, with 5 metros running through it, allowing you to easily visit all areas of Paris!

Located on the 1st floor (with a working elevator), the apartment is on the street with all the outlet stores of many hip French brands-- watch out Dads and Husbands!! :) You are steps away from the Square des Récollets which is a beautiful park perfect for kids with a playground, a beautiful well kept public garden and lots of grass area perfect for picnics! For several years in a row, the bakery down the street was voted #1 in Paris, 'Du Pain et des Idées'.

Avoid high roaming data costs and enjoy all that technology has to offer-- 4G, unlimited calls (including abroad), and GPS services to make walking around in Paris easier-- all for the rate of 5 euros a day, essentially the cost of a fancy Parisian coffee :) Please let us know upon booking that you are interested so we can reserve a SMARTY for your stay.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

We had wonderful stay. The apartment was perfect for 2 couples. The location was perfect and very pretty along the canal. There are numerous shops very close and bars and restaurants are of course no problem either. If you are there on a Sunday and are a bit of a foody, go to the market in Bastille.. brilliant.

Cozy apartment near the canal

  • 5 of 5

We were two couples who enjoyed our stay. All the room we needed. Appreciated having two bathrooms. The beds were comfortable and the bedding and showers were perfect. Sophie and her team were great to work with. The pick up at the airport was a bonus!!

Lovely! Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment came just as described. Its was simply lovely and accommodated 4 adults comfortably. Close to several great restaurants suggested in the manual, at which we ate all of our dinners. Delicious bakery right down the street, at which we got our breakfast daily. Also two grocery stores right down the street. Very close to two metro stations. The apartment was wonderful. Love the heated floors in the kitchen and the hardwood floors everywhere else.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at this apartment in Paris. The design is fantastic and smart. We had everything we needed and then some. The people who work at the management company were all very professional, friendly, and helpful. The neighborhood is great too -- wonderful shops, restaurants, and easily accessible via subway.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

To begin, I have to say this feels like the best overall experience we have had with renting a home. Our family of 4 was so comfortable there and enjoyed the best nights' sleep we had while vacationing in London and Paris and probably the best relaxing sleep we have had anywhere away from home. It was so comfortable and the location was very convenient. What we so appreciated was it was a very easy, 5-10 minute walk to the Metro and the station-Republique-is a very good station with multiple lines coming through it. As for the neighborhood, I wish we would have had more time to explore it, but we were busy seeing other sites in Paris. I will say that there is a coffee place just across the canal called 10 Bells that served the best coffee I have ever had in my life. Also, right down Marseille street (away from the canal) there is a very good bakery that you can smell the second you walk from the door of the apartment building in the morning. As for logistics, the owner did a great job sending a video about using the unit and the local management was very responsive to emails. Having a driver pick us up from Paris Nord was nice as well (very nice guy). I can only say positive things about this unit and our overall experience in Paris and I would love to stay there again when we get back to Paris.

Home away from home for two couples

  • 5 of 5

We made 12, rue de Marseille into home for this 70th-birthday trip to Paris. Exploring and discovering the immediate neighborhood was every bit as important and enjoyable as seeing the big monuments again. We plundered the open-air market twice (open Tuesday and Friday). Oh, the cheeses! Fresh produce, and even roasted chickens that finally ended up in our soup pot. With a baguette from Du Pain et des Idées down the street, some sliced tomatoes and cucumbers and fruits for dessert, we were in heaven. We enjoyed buckwheat "galettes" at Lulu la Nantaise, birthday dinner at the Vinaigriers, and to change up from French fare Thai cuisine chez Mme Shawn and Italian at Fuxia. The ones we missed will be for another time.

The apartment was efficient for all our needs: sleeping, socializing, eating, cooking, laundry, online work. Great beds with warm comforters and a heated floor in the living area. Internet was sufficient for our sometimes-high demand, and we learned to wait a bit, then flip the fuse back on when we lost both internet and hot water. Having a driver bring us in from Charles-de-Gaulle was relief after a long trip.

Communication with rentmyhomeinparis was in English, very efficient, and helpful, by email and telephone.

Yes, I'd rent this place again, for sure!
