About the property

Charm and comfort in the historical Marais

In the heart of Le Marais, very close to the famous Place des Vosges, the Musée Picasso and the quality restaurants of the Rue des Tournelles, the Beaumarchais apartment is on the 1st floor of a nice ancient building typical of Le Marais. With a floor area of 42 sq.m, sunny and calm, it has been recently renovated, equipped and nicely furnished in early 2012, with a real separate kitchen.

The living room, very bright with 2 large windows not overlooked, has a sofa-bed offering a real additional double bed.

The main bedroom is particularly romantic with its pretty ancient wooden floor in 'point de Hongrie' style, the large bed of 160x200, the antique fireplace and the 2 double windows adorned with large silk curtains. It is separated from the living room by a corridor also leading to the bathroom.

The kitchen is new and perfectly equipped for the best cookers.

A charming and peaceful place to enjoy the district walks and various pleasures.

Le Marais, What a Place! 💋

  • 5 of 5

Le Marais is the place to stay when visiting Paris. Everything is within walking distance: great restaurants on Rue du Vieux Temple, quaint shops, Ile St. Louis, Ile de la Cite where Quasimodo lived in the Cathedrale Norte Dame de Paris and where Mary Antoinette was held until her unfortunate guillotine experience. Take the Big Bus Paris to enjoy other sights such as: Tour Eiffel, Arc de Triomphe, Place de la Concorde, Louvre, ..... and, believe me when I say, this experience was heightened by this precious apartment, very comfy for 2, good for 4. All you could ever want to make your stay enjoyable. The pictures say it all. It is exactly as described. Thank you Benjamin for waiting for us and for explaining all the features of this lovely ❤️ apartment.

Great apt in great location

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying here during our trip to Paris. The apt is well taken care of and comfortable for 3 people. Maxime is responsive and helpful, and even allowed us to check out later than planned when our flight got delayed. The street traffic is loud (which we expected) but it really didn't bother us. We just shut the windows and turned on the fans when we wanted to sleep. Everything you need for food and drink is within walking distance and we used the Velib bikes quite often as there are several stations nearby. Biking is a great way to see Paris. Just note that unlike City bikes in the US, Velib bikes go quickly in Paris and it seems like people take them for the day vs. short jaunts. We found out the hard way that once you have a bike, you should hang onto it for the rest of the day. We biked to Sacre Coeur, dropped the bikes at the station and had to take the metro back when there were no bikes available for our return trip. The Marais location is great with many wonderful restaurants, cafes and boutiques to explore and it's an easy walk to the Seine for a picnic or boat ride. We highly recommend Maxime's Marais apartment!

Nice to be out of the touristy areas, but no air conditioning

  • 3 of 5

We were satisfied with our stay here. We enjoyed that this apartment was out of the main tourist area. The bathroom plumbing was great, and all the appliances worked well. IT was nice to have a safe in the bedroom closet. The bed and pull-out couch were both comfortable. The bakery across the street is incredible! It was great to be close to two different metro lines. However, we found it's a bit too far to use as a base for walking all over the city. It looks better in the photos here than when you actually arrive, but it's fine. Two small suggestions: provide a broom, and provide instructions for the stove (we were able to figure it out, but it took a few tries!)

My biggest disappointment was that this apartment does NOT have air conditioning (when I booked and again now when I double-checked, "air conditioning" is listed as an amenity of this apartment). There is a good fan provided, but a fan is not the same as air conditioning! The apartment was warm and stuffy during the day, and we found that to get the apartment cool enough to sleep at night, we had to open the windows. However, the windows open onto Boulevard Beaumarchais, which is busy and loud at night (especially on Friday and Saturday), and the apartment is right above the shop below, so you're close to the street. My husband couldn't sleep when the windows were open due to the noise; I couldn't sleep when the windows were closed due to the heat. Given that there was no air conditioning, the price seemed a bit much for what was provided. Next time we'll try some place else.

Heat wave in Paris visit

  • 3 of 5

Maxime, the owner met us at the apartment,despite us being 30 min behind schedule, which I thought was very nice of him. The apartment on the whole was adequate for my husband and myself. Unfortunately as we arrived in the heat wave of June, the apartment was most uncomfortable. Yes, other reviewers had warned about the busy street, but let me stress it is definitely busy, and noisy and all through the night too, scooters, police cars, revellers, etc. To sleep one had to close the windows to shut out the noise, but with one little fan going, it was very stifling. I should also mention my husband and I were uncomfortable going out at night, as the area didn't seem safe to us, especially with all the locks on our door & on the shops. Also we found the bed very hard, but that is our opinion. We also thought the bathroom had not been cleaned properly. Yes, the Metro is very close and once we got the hang of using the Metro was great. Perhaps in the Fall or Winter this accommodation would be better, but we are sorry we ended our months lovely holiday as we did. No-one can predict a heat wave! We tried our best to see some of the major sights despite the heat!

Owner's Response: Indeed there was for a few days an extreme heat wave in Paris, totally unusual and unpredictable. I think that this warmth, which was not agreeable to anyone in Paris, leads you to make unjust criticism. The fan is powerful, it is not "little". And we've added a second one in the livingroom, which allows to sleep windows closed and thus no longer have noise at night. The neighborhood is absolutely safe, it is one of the most sought after by the middle-class and even upper middle class families, but it is central therefore you must always pay atention, as everywhere. The building is extremely well kept. And the bed as the recent and very thick mattress are generally very appreciated by our visitors !
