About Benjamin Convers

Doctors in couple with 2 children

Benjamin Convers purchased this apartment in 2006

Why Benjamin Convers chose 4th Pompidou Centre/Le Marais/Notre Dame

We kept this pied-à-terre in Paris, town where we studied during 10 years and where we met each other. Le Marais is a magical place in Paris.

What makes this apartment unique

Very quiet street even if we are in the historical district Le Marais, a few steps away from the Place des Vosges.

Stunning views over the roofs, the feeling of floating

The apartment has been fully renovated in 2014.

Nice light with rooftop views in two directions, including from pleasant little balcony. Recent tasteful renovation. Management company easy to work with.

Great little efficiency in the Marais

  • 4 of 5

We just checked into this apartment yesterday. So far it has met our expectations and we have not faced the issues a couple of recent reviewers experienced. The apartment was clean on our arrival, the kitchen is adequately supplied for preparing a simple meal and we had plenty of hot water for two showers last night. No, its not perfect but I don't know what more could be expected for the price. I will post an update if something happens to change my mind but so far were happy with the apartment.

Great jumping off point to see the sights.

  • 3 of 5

The bed was extremely comfortable after a long day of sight-seeing. The kitchen really helped to make the trip affordable. All pots and pans for cooking with ease, although no dish towels were provided. The manager met us in a timely fashion for check in and check out. It was explained that a professional cleaning service was used, although there was quite a bit of long hair left throughout the apartment and in the bathroom on the floor. Sacre Coeur could be seen from the kitchen window and the Bastille subway stop was a 3 minute walk from the apartment. A bakery, many restaurants and shops in the immediate area made for a pleasant stay. The description of the apartment is accurate - cozy place for two, maximum.

This studio had great potential, but the management was unresponsive when I asked for help.

  • 1 of 5

Pleasant with a striking view, this studio was right for me until I discovered that the management and owner had no intention of supplying basic items described on the VRBO for this self-catered apartment rental. Despite asking for help over the month of my stay, I had use of only one cup, no useable knives, a dirty microwave and frost-filled fridge, dirty bed linens, a clogged vacuum cleaner, burnt-out lighting, and no heat, telephone or working TV. Emails to owner, calls to the management service were essentially ignored. I have stayed in owner-operated apartments in Paris for over 25 years with great satisfaction; but this is the first time I experienced fraud. I will not use VRBO again and will warn my clients of this unsatisfactory booking service.

Owner's Response: This traveler cancelled the payment by credit card and she got her money back after having one month holiday in the center of Paris in a nice renewed studio ... just because the knifes were not sharped or other lies ... The fridge is new (it was changed just 3 months ago), bed linens are fresh and brought by professional laundry service (Elis) and my manager went several times to the apartment to explain how was working TV, internet and so ... just a bad person. I didn't know this fraud and everyone should know that someone can spend holidays in your home and after that cancel her payment. Homelidays didn't help us on this case ...

Adequate but not without problems.

  • 3 of 5

We loved the location of the apartment and the convenience to other destinations. Joseph, the property manager, was very helpful and accommodating. The price was extremely reasonable. However, we had a few concerns. The elevator is smaller than a phone booth so moving both people and luggage to the 7th floor is a challenge. The apartment is very small, especially with the Murphy bed in the down position. A minor quibble was that there was no toilet paper in the bathroom, which we did not discover until an inopportune moment! Finally, the temperature in the shower was only lukewarm which did not make for a pleasant shower after a long day of sightseeing.
