We loved this location...a quiet street but in a lively neighborhood. The apartment is as represented in the pictures. We did not mind the stairs at all. Our host was wonderful and so helpful.
The down side was the A/C which was not totally functioning and our first night was hot. It did not bother me but my husband and son were quite hot. There were only 4 of us and I think it was way too hot to use the loft room. That was our only complaint otherwise it was so wonderful having all this space to use and a great Paris apartment!!
Located in a central location. 15 min walk to Notre Dame Cathedral. A 30 min walk to the Louvre. A taxi ride to the Eiffel. A 5 min walk to the metro, and shops. Supermarket nearby. This flat is located on the top floor and has comfortable, spacious Parisian charm. There are 2 bedrooms. Both have double beds. One of the bedrooms also contains a third bed in a loft which is ideal for children. There is a shower and sink. The toilet room and sink are separate. Lots of windows and fresh air. No views from the apartment. No balcony.
The owner met us at check in and check out and explained all amenities. The space was very clean and well stocked with toilet paper, hand soap, dish soap and laundry pods. The appliances were all relatively new. The washer and dryer worked excellent as did the other appliances. It was a treat to be provided with coffee and coffee filters. The WiFi was consistently functional. The TV had satellite so we were able to locate some channels in English. There was a DVD player but we did not use.
Our only challenges with the location was the fourth floor walk up and the noise of rentals next door.
I would stay here again and I would recommend it.
The apartment was great. Very interesting, and very cool. Clean, comfortable, etc. The four flights of stairs were long, but doable (i did it with big bags, and a 3 and 7 year old). Location was handy. a quiet street around the corner form some active streets w/ restaurants, etc. Easy walk to Notre Dame. Doable walk...but its a bit of a hike...to the Louvre. The host was very friendly.
The flat was spacious, clean, comfortable and quiet. The location was within easy reach of amenities and metros, easy walking distance to Notre Dame. Loved it!! The stairs are not for the weak hearted though, especially with bags.
We all had a great time. Mod cons very useful for a young family.
Location superb. We will be coming back again I'm sure.
The magic doors and big staircase are often talked about by the kids.
Wifi was great too.
Right in the middle of Le Marais, such an great part of the city to stay in. Walked to all the major attractions, except the Eiffel Tower. The neighborhood is very safe and upper-end, great restaurants all around. The apartment is SO LARGE for the price. You feel like you live in the city staying here, the interior is great, just look at those pictures! Beware the 99 stair hike to get up and down each time, if you aren't in moderate shape, it will be a bit of a hassle. Fit people won't mind it at all. TOP marks, I would definitely recommend to a friend and would stay again.
The owner's husband is a police officer and is super friendly and is willing to answer any questions, so you'll feel safe and comfortable.
This is a gorgeous apartment in a fantastic area of Paris. We loved staying here. As a bonus, we became quite fit walking up the stairs.
