The apartment is just the right size for me.
It is in an ideally location for visiting the art galleries and it is only short walk to a lot of the must see sights of Paris.
The area also as some fine restaurants and bistros where you can dine, have a few drinks and relax.
Excellent location for first time visitor to Paris. Very nice neighborhood near the Metro. Great local shopping and easy access to all Paris sites. Comfortable apartment in a charming historic building. Owner is very responsive and accommodating. Monsieur Blondeau is the best!
Le Marais is a very vibrant, friendly, safe and central area of Paris. The flat was clean, all equipements were modern, and it was perfect for a week as a safe base to explore Paris from. We will definitely come back.
This small but perfectly formed apartment met our needs very well, being centrally located in Le Marais and five minutes walk from L'Isle de France. Le Marais is safe, lively and full of Gallic charm; the highlight being the vast number of reasonably priced restaurants and cafes as well as being an ideal base for exploring one of the world's great cities.
M. Blondeau gave us a friendly welcome and was very helpful, suggesting different places to eat and places to visit.
There are plenty of stairs to the apartment, so you need to plan to only ascend and descend once a day. And the apartment is small; although there are comfortable beds (single), a good shower, wardrobe, kettle, toaster and electric fan for when the night-time temperature gets uncomfortably hot!
Thoroughly recommended for those who travel light, on a budget, love good food and who have the stamina for those stairs!
Owner emailed clear instructions from CDG airport to the apartment via email before our trip then welcomed us personally. Just be prepared to climb the winding staircase after a long day (worth it). Close to all tourist attractions, Metro & RER, grocery, shopping, restaurants, cafes. Very quiet at night. Stayed with my 12 year old.
Enter off the narrow street into an imposing courtyard. A further grand entrance takes you to the main staircase. Two sweeping stone stairwells followed by a winding narrow wooden staircase. Not suitable for huge or extremely heavy cases... Climbing the many stairs was well worth it. The studio was charming, with lovely old beams and very comfortable beds. The kitchen worked well and we were able to cook easily on the two hobs. The bathroom was snug but perfectly functional. No noise from elsewhere in the building. The location was great. Less than 10 mins to the nearest metro, line 1, and right in the heart of the Marais district close to restaurants and bars galore.
Very lively quartier, felt safe w teen daughter. Nice private and quiet. Only down side was tenant below heard every footstep past 9 pm, sensitive ears and early sleeper.
