Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location in walking distance of all the sites you will want to see in Paris! Lamia was helpful and knowledgeable and made us feel at home. Very cozy apartment with markets, restaurants, museums, galleries just right outside your door. Laurence was also incredibly helpful with recommendations and also arranged a taxi to take us to the airport for our early flight back home. We really enjoyed our stay here!

great central paris accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We (mom, dad, and teenage daughter) stayed here for four nights on our recent short visit to Paris. The apartment is cozy and exactly as pictured. Not luxury, but everything a traveller needs. It is only one floor up and an elevator is available. Being able to make a few meals here is a great cost savings and there are several good grocery stores very nearby for your shopping. The location is also ofcourse great for sightseeing too. We walked all over central Paris from here and it was an easy ride on the metro to get to Montmarte too. It was all so close by we walked along the Seine and around Ile de la Cite and Ile Saint Louis every night just to soak it all in. For a central location at a good price, this is a dandy little spot. Our host was very helpful too!

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I enjoyed a wonderful week in this beautiful apartment, right in the heart of the Marais. The listing and photos all accurately represent the charming space, which was spotless and well-maintained. Laurence was so thorough and helpful in communicating with us before our trip. We absolutely loved staying here, and hope to return again soon! Thank you for everything, Laurence! (Apologies for this delayed review!)

Fab location, great apartment

  • 5 of 5

We were so impressed by this apartment. It has everything you need and its right in the thick of things. Yes its small, but we (2x adults 2x kids) fitted in just fine. If you want an affordable, clean, central base to discover Paris you'll love this place. Laurence is also an excellent host and very well organised.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

As we only had two days to explore Paris, we were looking for an apartment that was near transportation with easy access to the sights. We loved the location of this apartment. The apartment was able to accommodate three of us as we were travelling with our teenage son. There was a grocery store and Metro station around the corner. We enjoyed our walk to the bakery and coffee shop for breakfast. The owner Laurence met us at the apartment, explaining the amenities and helping us get on our way to the sights. We enjoyed using the Batobus to get around the city which was only a short wall away. We would definitely stay here again.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect place and location for Paris vacation. It' s in the center of everything. Groceries stores, restaurants, souvenir shops, bakeries, metro stations and bike rentals are steps away from the door. We walked to Notre Dame and to Louvre museum. The batobus station is very close as well. We were warmly welcomed by Lamia, the owner's friend and oriented us to the apartment set up: TV, phone with free calls to the US, high speed WIFI, refrigerator and stove. Even if it is in the center of everything, the place is very secured and very peaceful. Most of all, the owner, Laurence is a great host. She replies to all my inquiries promptly. We met Laurence on our check out date. What a lovely woman she is!

I highly recommend this place. You will never regret it.
