It is located in one of Parisians' most favored locations, the Marais. From the mid-thirteenth century, the Marais became one of the most important aristocratic areas of Paris. By World War II the Marais had declined, but a major effort was made beginning in the 1950's to renovate the area. The main palaces and mansions were restored and turned into museums: the Picasso Museum, the Paris Historical Museum and the Cognac-Jay Museum are now prominent and worthy of a visit. The Georges Pompidou Museum, France's national Museum of Modern Art and one of the world's most important cultural institutions, was built on the western edge of the Marais. Richard Rogers and Renzo Piano were the architects of this architecturally revolutionary building. The Marais has become incredibly chic and you will find trendy shops, countless art galleries, and all varieties of restaurants and cafes. You can shop away and dine very well between museum visits !
The Pompidou, the Picasso museum, the Hotel de Ville, the dramatic Carnavelet Museum, impressive Place de Voges, the Seine, the Cathedral of Notre Dame are all a 10 mn walk away. You will also find the Opera at the Bastille not far away too. 2 metros are less than a 4 minute walk, the RER a 7 minute walk, and 2 bus stops within 2 minutes.Tough to beat this for location.

Guestbook comments from the manager
This apartment was just as it was advertised; we loved living for four nights in this renovated 5th floor apartment. It was clean and well appointed with all we needed. It was great to wake up in the morning to see the roof tops of the Marais. The location in the Marais was great, we like to stay in different locations so we can get to know the neighborhoods.
