Comfortable, good location.

  • 4 out of 5
Very nice studio, comfortable bed, strong shower. The location is great, especially if you like cats (the back window of the cat cafe next door - where the cats hang out) is next to the door of the apartment). Close Metro and easy access to Marais, walking distance from many Paris sites.

It was cool in Paris when we were there,

I'm not sure how comfortable sleeping would be on a very hot August night, since there is no cross-ventilation. Also, a stronger WIFI signal would help - as some reviews had noted, we needed to stand at the window or walk into the courtyard to get a good signal. Overall, a very nice apartment at a reasonable price, and the host was lovely and accommodating.

Wonderful Week!

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a week at this apartment in July. It is exactly as shown and we found the bed to be very comfortable. The location is great - 1 block from the Rambuteau Metro entrance with stores, restaurants, etc. nearby. Yael was just lovely, very welcoming and accomodating. We would definitely stay here again. Merci beaucoup, Yael!

Awesome Apartment in the Perfect Location!

  • 5 out of 5
My husband and I stayed at this property for 8 nights and absolutely LOVED it! The apartment and owners checked all of our boxes (and we had many, so really, this place was awesome!):

We wanted to stay somewhere central. The apt is in a perfect location in the Marais. It’s close to local boulangeries (at least 5, depending on which direction you walk!), cafes, super markets, a post office, wine shops, etc.

We wanted to stay somewhere close to a metro stop for easy transportation. The apt is a ½ block from the Rambuteau stop and a quick 5 minute walk to other stations with more metro line options. We could get just about anywhere in Paris in about 15 minutes. Such a perfect central location.

We wanted to stay somewhere clean. We were extremely happy with the cleanliness of the apt – it was in pristine condition!

We wanted the owners to be on the ball. Yael (and David) were 100%! They are super fast to respond to email, and totally pleasant to work with. This was our first time using HomeAway and they made the process so easy for us. Yael emailed us a few days before our trip and made sure we knew exactly how to get to the apt. She also greeted us at the gate the minute we got there and set us up in the apt (showed us how to use the keys, maps of where we were & things nearby, etc.).

We wanted the apt to have internet. As other reviewers have mentioned, the internet can be spotty in the apt. We didn’t ever have to step out into the courtyard to use it, but we did sometimes have to sit in the chair by the window or by the front door to reestablish wifi (pronounced “weefee!” in French – any Americans who visit Paris will hopefully get a kick out of the pronunciation too!) connection. Once you were connected, it was fine. We also noticed that we had more trouble when both of us were trying to use it at the same time. Overall, we were 100% able to use the internet to research places to go/eat, post pictures, check email etc.

There is only one minor thing that I feel is worth nothing: the apt is on the ground floor which makes it super easy to go in and out, but the automatic lights to come on when someone else passes through the courtyard so it can be a bit bright at night (this is coming from someone who sleeps in total darkness, so it may not bother you).

Overall, I absolutely recommend this property to anyone looking for a fabulous place to stay on your next trip to Paris. We’ll certainly be renting from Yael and David again!

Lovely apartment, great location

  • 5 out of 5
We rented this cute studio for 8 nights and found it to be exactly as described. The bed has a firm mattress, which was a very important feature for us. We loved the idea that the apartment was street level, with a private door in an enclosed courtyard, and set back from the street, which made it very quiet. The windows had bars, so there were no safety concerns. We had WIFI connectivity issues inside the apartment and had to step into the courtyard as other guests have stated. The location was a 10-15 minute walk to many tourist attractions and a block or two away from a grocery store, boulangerie, open air market, metro stop and cafes. Yael was available for all of our needs and would recommend staying here.

Lovely Apartment Eclectic Area

  • 5 out of 5
Spotlessly clean and all home comforts in this lovely apartment. In eclectic area close to transport links and nice walk to Notre Dame area of Paris. We were met by manager at allocated time and shown round. Very helpful and good to know there is some-one there if you need any help. We stay here again without any hesitation.

Great value, comfort and location

  • 4 out of 5
This courtyard apartment is conveniently located on the ground level within a block and a half of the nearest Metro stop and the building is secure and quiet. The apartment is modern and well furnished (just as pictured) and allowed us to live like Parisians for a week with easy trips to the area fruit/vegetable markets, grocery, and bakeries - all within 2 blocks.

The owner is an absolute gem. She was very welcoming and had area maps, brochures, and guidebooks available for use and review along with personalized instructions for locating area highlights and necessities.

We were able to walk to everything we wanted to visit in the Marais and all the neighboring Arrondissements and conveniently stop in to the apartment for rest or refueling before heading on to the next attraction. We really enjoyed our stay and have already recommended this apartment (and its sister properties) to friends who are planning a visit to Paris.
