About the 3rd Arrondissement location:

This apartment is located in one of the best areas to stay in Paris. Le Marais is regarded as one of the best Parisian neighbourhoods.

A favourite green space of Parisians on a sunny Parisian day, you�����ll find this square full of people having a picnic and children playing in its many fountains. The historic arcades surrounding the square house contain art galleries, chic restaurants, street musicians and the former home of French writer Victor Hugo, the man behind works such as Les Miserables et Notre Dame de Paris. You can visit Victor Hugo’s house for free and admire the views of the Places des Vosges from above. The Marais district in the Third Arrondissement is full of restaurants, boulangeries and shopping opportunities.

Central & convenient location

  • 4 of 5

This flat was a terrific home base for our youth family. Metro is close by, neighborhood is quaint and overall quiet compared to a busy/Main Street. The Place de Voeges a block away was a delight. Great brasseries, gelato, a cute Italian restaurant and a small market around the corner and so much more.

The team was easy to reach and coordinate entry on our late arrival. Although we had a few minor issues, we were impressed with their quick response and speed to solution.

We appreciated having convenient amenities we are used to (fridge, coffee pot, etc) but for Americans who are used to "our" washing machines and dryers - read online before you go - it's convenient to have in case of emergencies or need, but the quantity and time are much different given the washer-dryer in one combo. For a family of four...if you are packing light, I'd recommend finding a laundromat.

Well located in the Marais

  • 4 of 5

The apartment is as advertised. Mostly. It could use a good scrubbing and some spot painting along baseboards and similar treatments. The rooms are adequately sized and appointed, except the small tables are extremely flimsy, the couch is a disaster, oversized and the seat cushions slide out whenever you sit down. The kitchen utensils could be upgraded, especially the pots and pans. More drinking glasses and coffee cups, please. The washing machine is standard European I think, but for us westerners it’s difficult to manage. As a dryer, it sucks. Better instructions would be helpful. The hot water heater decided to rebel at week’s end and wouldn’t reheat for the second shower. When active it was way too hot. The shower - oh God - Europeans stall showers are so small and the handles intrude way into the space where any wrong movements makes changing the pressure or temperature of the water a potential disaster. In light of these comments, which we hope management will act on to improve the property, we had a very pleasant stay and our needs for a small apartment were well met. If improvements were implemented, we would definitely return. The location in the Marais was perfect for our needs and interests, as it is close to many important museums and several good restaurants and the metro.

Location is key!

  • 5 of 5

Prime location is best way to describe this place. Very close to the Place des Vosges (where you can visit Victor Hugo’s apartment), the Rue des Rosiers (can you say…falafel?!) and the shopping of Francs Bourgeois. The Marais is without a doubt my favourite quarter of Paris. The flat is well equipped and perfect for a couple. Everything is clean, nicely maintained and equipped. The wifi worked well (unfortunately this was a working ‘holiday’ for me so it was important). Would definitely stay here again.

Great location for wandering around Paris!

  • 5 of 5

Our Parisian holiday was well spent in this cozy Marais apartment. Paris’s weather was unfortunately not so cooperative during our visit so it was nice to have a warm base we could call home to go and warm up/rest our legs a little between rain showers and sightseeing. We found the place to be as described, clean and free of the owner’s possessions (this was a nice contrast from a previous rental we stayed in that was completely lacking in storage.). We arranged our check in in advance and somebody was waiting for us at the door when we arrived. It was comforting to know we had a contact in Paris in case we needed anything or had an emergency. The location is great for wandering around without an aim and just admiring the buildings, architecture and hidden gardens. We felt very cared for and would stay here again without batting an eye.

Roomy and Clean With a Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very roomy apartment located very close to a metro stop and a short walk to the Bastille and most amazingly, just near Place des Vosges. There are plenty of restaurants and shops just around the corner. The apartment had everything we needed to cook and the addition of a washing/drying machine made our stay even better. We couldn't believe how quiet the neighborhood was at night. The building was extremely quiet. The apartment is several flights up but there is a lift so no worries. We were very impressed with the size and brightness of the apartment.
