Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Roquette - Chez Benoit

Feel at home in this spacious 400 square feet (37 square meters) well-appointed, one bedroom apartment with a comfortable sleeper-sofa in the living room; your home away from home while in Paris. It is located in the historic Bastille neighborhood. Staying in our neighborhood will give you a real Parisian experience—close enough to everything, yet just far enough from the tourist beat.


Our apartment is located on the second floor (third floor American). You’ll be met by our English-speaking manager. He will give you a tour of the apartment, explaining how everything works and give you the keys. He’ll even give you some pointers on the neighborhood. If you have any problems or questions during your stay, we are here.


You’re just a 10-minute stroll away from the ever-interesting Marché Richard Lenoir that even David Lebovitz says is one of the best in the city (open Thursday and Sunday). About the same distance southward will bring you to the Marché d’Aligre (open every day except Monday), what Travel and Leisure calls:….”One of the city’s best markets…..stands out compared to Paris’s other outdoor markets because its lively, personable vibe makes it feel like a village within a village”..

Located at metro stop Voltaire (line 9), you have direct links to Republique (canal St Martin) and other major transport interchanges. Bastille or the Marais is a mere 10-15 minute stroll.


The bedroom offers a comfortable queen-sized bed. A large closet with plenty of shelves and hangers provides lots of room for your clothes and luggage. All bed and bath linen is provided.

The living room has a comfortable sleeper-sofa, for two, and three chairs. You can catch up on the news on CNN or BBC or just relax with a glass of vine. The large flat screen TV has more than 500 channels from around the world.

Just off the living room is a small balcony with café table and chairs. This the perfect place to start your day with coffee and croissants or finish the day with champagne. It gets sun much of the day.

Keep in touch with family and friends with high-speed WIFI or just pick up the phone. Long distance calls to the US, Canada and over 100 countries are free and unlimited.

The bathroom has a modern shower with rain head. It has a combination washer/dryer which will allow you to pack on the light side.

A comprehensive apartment guide includes operating instructions for all the apartment’s appliances as well as local information and emergency numbers.

This is a non-smoking apartment.

Concierge Services: First class concierge services are available, including personalized trip planning, restaurant suggestions and reservations, specialized walking tours, private excursions with a driver, limousine service, and personal shopping. If there's something you have in mind, don't hesitate to inquire.

What you will get from us: We will work with you to provide answers to all your questions before you leave home, and will provide detailed instructions for getting to the apartment, regardless of your mode of transportation. We will offer to book a car service for you, which will streamline the arrival/departure process. We will be there to greet you, help with your luggage, and provide an informative tour of the apartment, explaining how everything works. We will give you a brief introduction to your new neighborhood so you can find all the important things, and can also give recommendations for our favorite bistros, brasseries, cafes, and restaurants, and help make reservations as appropriate. We are only a telephone call away, should you need help, while in our care.

Our mission is to give you the best experience possible, which will make your dream trip even more memorable.

A Nice Addition to Our Paris Trip

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed having a normal place to live that felt like it was ours for the week. David was very helpful for everything we needed. We had three that might normally be a bit of a tight fit but we were out sightseeing a lot. This apartment is perfect for two.

The location was really great—lots of restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores, and specialty shops. It is located only 2 blocks from the subway. The layout of the apartment was very nice—perfect for 2 people and it was provisioned nicely and very quiet at night. We are in our early 70’s and it didn’t bother us, but it probably would not work for people with mobility issues. It’s on the 3rd floor and no elevator. David was great and we would definitely stay there again and highly recommend it to our friends.

Great Apartment and Support by Landlord

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is nice and well-taken-care-of, located very close to Metro station Voltaire with multiple supermarkets, shops, restaurants and bakeries nearby. Everything was as described online and in good condition. The Landlord was very helpful with all requests and immediately provided anything needed. I had a great time in the apartment and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to do vacation as well as longer business trips to Paris.

Great location, super apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This apartment has everything you need, big windows, comfortable bed and a nice living room. The bathroom and kitchen are modern and well equipped with everything you need for your stay. I love the location because I had everything I needed with in a few steps, metro, bakery, grocery, restaurants and so on. I recommend this place to anyone who wants a comfortable place yet very centric. The street was nice and quiet and allowed me to enjoy the balcony a lot.

David is really nice and accommodating and helped a lot with ideas and instructions. Really great place to stay at while in Paris!

I lived with my husband in this great apartment in June 2014, the apartment as the photo only better!

the apartment is newly renovated, all clean, plenty of towels and bed linens, lots of kitchen utensils and tableware. the apartment is furnished with taste. there is really one double bed with a good mattress. the apartment is very much light because it has large windows. the apartment is located on the street where there are no tourists, where the local people and the local shops with good prices.

the metro is around the corner, nearby there are grocery shops, cafes, the bread shop also nearby there is a whole street cafes and bars, where the night life!

the landlord quickly answered my questions by mail, met us at the apartment on time as agreed, was very helpful, everything is explained, spoke and gave recommendations for city. a pleasant surprise was the bottlechampagne in the refrigerator, and were capsules for making coffee in a coffee machine and various biscuits.

if you want to feel not a tourist but a real citizen of Paris, the apartment is great for this!
