3 starts = it was average. Would I stay there again? First I would look at other options and probably go back to AirBnB, but if there was nothing else I would stay there again, that's fine (my spouse would probably disagree). It's in a good location. It's a studio, so it's one room, but it's pretty big with two windows providing a lot of light. There's a small kitchen area (didn't use) and a washer (didn't use). There's a TV (didn't use) and fast WiFi (did use that one). There's a decent size table in the room, with two chairs. Closet space is limited; i.e. there are closets but most space is taken up by stuff. Bathroom is small - just about right for one person. Towel warmer in the bathroom is a big plus.

Why 3 starts?

None of these are big issues by itself, but they accumulated and together became a little annoying... No soap. No toilet paper. Clogged shower (I mean, really clogged where water was barely draining). I didn't like the cash deposit requirement that was mentioned in a long email sent after booking, which I initially missed (the deposit part). Check-in could have been handled a lot better since there was someone with a key in the next building. Turnaround on communication with the owner takes a few hours (via email). On arrival you are asked to call contacts provided, but if you don't have a cell phone you are out of luck. Towels and bed linens had a slight mildew smell - just enough to notice, and it went away after a day (or we got used to it).

Owner's Response: Thanks Konrad. You are right to be disappointed by the lack of soap and toilet paper - this is most unusual and I have spoken with the agents about this as soap and toilet paper should always be in the apartment for you. The poorly draining shower is now fixed. Normally, the agent meets guests at the apartment. I understand that, exceptionally, this was not possible on this occasion. We would be delighted to welcome you in the future.

This apartment is tired and disappointing. The best thing about it is the great location.

  • 1 of 5

There is insufficient hot water fir one person to have a shower long enough to wash and condition your haur without it going cold. The shower outlet blocked and needed cleaning out (owner admitted it happens every two weeks or so - so why isn't it part of their cleaning programme between stays?), the television is so small you can't see it from the bed and is really complicated to work, the cupboards are stuffed full of owners things in untidy disarray and the whole place needs a really good clean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I was a little surprised by your comments. No one has ever remarked on insufficient hot water ( - there is a dial over which you have control if it is too cold). Again no one has ever said that the TV is too complicated to use - it's a simple TV with a cable TV box which most people will be very familiar with. I do not keep any belongings in the apartment and there is lots of space in the cupboards. I have spoken with the agent about cleanliness and he confirms that the apartment was professionally cleaned before your arrival.

Great location, simple and nice.

  • 5 of 5

Ideal location in Marais. The apartment is small, but had adequate room and a kitchen that we use for several meals. Though small, it was comfortable and the location was ideal for seeing the sights. Found some great bakeries and shops close by. One morning, there was an opening air market in the square nearby where we purchased items for some meals. The apartment could be updated, but again it was adequate for what we needed. Agnes and Thomas were responsive to texts.

Great location and comfortable apartment

  • 4 of 5

Tomas' apartment was great and everything was just as described and represented in the pictures. The bed was comfortable, the washer worked great, and the washroom and shower were good (good pressure, hot water). The TV was a little difficult to figure out but Tomas provided instructions to this and everything else in the apartment. The location was great and very close to the Hotel de Ville metro station and about a 10 minute walk to Notre Dame. There are lots of restaurants and a grocery store nearby. The only negative comment I would make is that it was really noisy due to the café across the street (especially on a Saturday night when it was still really boisterous at 2:30am) but this is no reflection on the apartment itself. Key pickup was straight forward as was check out and they worked with my schedule. The communication beforehand and during my 3 night stay was also really good and they were highly responsive.

Clean studio in a wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our one week stay in this flat in the Le Marais district, more of a locals neighborhood than a tourist area. Although easy walking distance to most tourist attractions. Very good restaurants, cafes and bakeries a short walk away. Communicating with Brian, Agnes and Thomas was quick and effortless, they were quick to respond and very accommodating to our travel schedule. The flat is small but well equipped and the location hard to beat. We flew into CDG departed from ORY and found it easy to get to the flat via the Paris Metro system.

The perfect location in Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Just back from Paris after spending 4 nights in this fabulous little apartment. Fantastic location on the edge of the Marais. The apartment is small, but that was expected and you could easily swing two cats, if you were so inclined! Two lovely large double windows allowed lots of light and air. Very comfy bed. Small bathroom which was absolutely fine, but you do need to take care getting in and out of the shower as it gets a bit slippery. Easy communication with Brian and the lady from the shop downstairs who arrived to let me in. I hope to return at the end of Sept and wouldn't hesitate booking here again. I've given it five stars because it is exactly as described. Merci beaucoup!
