Charming,funky, great neighborhood, easy access to Metro

  • 4 of 5

This turned out to be a great little apartment for our two week stay in Paris. Wonderful restaurants and the Place des Vosges all within 6 blocks or so...easy to get to 3 Metro stops within a 5 minute walk.The T-v is quirky, we didn't have much time to watch anyway. Very do-able kitchen area...you have to get used to the mezzanine bedrooms. The bathroom could use a bit of updating..but it worked well for our purposes. People watching from the living room window is great..and the neighborhood quiets down considerably after 9 or 10, so the nights are relatively quiet. Pierre is easily contacted..and is a great help for anything you need or have questions about. Resturant L'Ange 20, directly across the street is top notch.We would absolutely stay here again!If The Musee de Picasso..a short walk away is a must see..although 2 of the floors are closed for renovation. Be aware that the Musee Carnavalet is closed until sometime in 2018. Also..take time to visit the Bastille Farmers Market (Sun and Thurs.) and the Craft /art market there on Saturday.Great fun!

The only reason I wouldn't give this a full 5 stars(please add 1/2 star to the 4 above) is the somewhat quirky bathroom and the mezzanine access to the beds.

Philadelphia, Pa


  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at this lovely apartment. Really perfect location in a wonderful neighborhood. Great shops, amazing restaurants and the beautiful Place de Vosges all within easy walking distance, as well as many museums and points of interest. Accessible to all parts of Paris and beyond via the Metro (short walk to Chemin Vert or Bastille stations). Lovely apartment with plenty of room and lovely views of a typical Parisan neighborhood. Easy commute to and from airport. Highly recommend if you wish to feel like a "local" during your visit.

Excellent apartment in the Marais.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is ideally located near two Metro stops and several cafe's on a great little street in the Marais. My husband, daughter, niece and myself spent a wonderful Christmas week here. The apartment was the perfect size. We never felt crowded and Pierre was incredibly easy to work with. Would recommend to anyone and would stay there again in a heartbeat.

Wonderful apartment and location!

  • 5 of 5

Pierre was a great host, and the apartment was extremely comfortable and functional. My family and I visited Paris in May, and we were very comfortable for the entirety of our stay. The apartment was close to the two different metro stops, and we were able to easily walk to many attractions! Even though the apartment was in Le Marais (and we could people-watch from the windows overlooking the street), it was quiet at night. Overall, if we return to Paris, we will definitely stay here again!

Great little place in a nice location

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent option for my mother-in-law, teenage daughter and I. I worried that we'd be on top of each other in a single hotel room, but we didn't want to rent multiple rooms. This flat offered 2 beds plus the fold out couch, so it was perfect. It also has a couple of nice sitting areas so that everyone can visit together. We spent most of our time out and about so we didn't really take advantage of the kitchen, TV, etc., but nice to have those things I suppose. The flat is very close to 2 metro stations, which makes getting around the city very easy. Lots of things within walking distance too. In addition to Place de Vosges, you can easily walk to shopping locations, restaurants, etc. Pierre was excellent to work with, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time in Paris!
