    The location of this apartment is perfect for exploring Paris! You can easily walk to Notre Dome, the Latin quarter, Luxembourg Gardens, etc. Two different metro stops are super close by. Another reviewer complained about the noise at night. . . I don't think that this is something that could be avoided if you want to be in the city. We were not bothered by it, nor did it keep us from sleeping. The apartment itself was clean and had everything that we needed for our stay. The TV and washing machine did not work when we arrived, but Pierre had the washing machine fixed during our stay. We had no desire to watch TV, so we didn't care about that. Pierre did refund some of our money because of the broken appliances. Communicating with Pierre was great. The two bedrooms are actually small lofts that do not provide complete privacy. We were traveling with another couple, so this was a bit of an issue for us. Overall, because of the great location, this is a great place to stay and we would stay there again. 08 June 2013 - 17:20:20

    Great location up one flight of stairs, the unit offers four areas of privacy yet ample room for congregating too. Pierre is delightful and attentive. There are local attractions, great and varied shops with the metro stop just two blocks away. Yes, there is street noise that rises and falls with Paris waking and going to sleep. We suburbanites did not find it invasive or distracting. Others might. The steps inside and out of the apartment are steep but navigable even with arm loads of luggage/shopping bags. By US standards, the washer/dryer is anemic. But there is a very clean, nice Laundromat 30 seconds away. But it too illustrates the differences between US and European appliances. It takes about six Euro to dry bath towels completely. My wife, late teen daughters and I already miss our time on Rue de Pas de la Mule! 10 June 2013 - 14:01:20

    We stayed in this little apartment for 6 nights with 3 adults and 2 small kids. It was in a perfect location in the Marais and actually sizeable for Paris. 1 block away is Place des Vosges which is a great park for kids. Lots of great restaurants as well. The apartment was nice, albeit quirky. Tiny kitchen that is a bit tough for prepping bigger meals. Does have a washer which is nice. AC is also available. Beds are not comfortable by North American standards but seem to be the norm in Europe. Very very firm! We all had significant back pain and stiffness every morning! Would recommend it for sure, especially for the price and location. Great if you have more than a couple people staying together. Pierre was very nice as well. 23 June 2013 - 14:43:17

    Pleasantly surprised by this nice apartment. Well located to tour Paris. Close to metro system. Clean and comfortable for our family of 5. Pierre was flexible and allowed us to access apartment earlier than planned. The only two negative items are a safe that doesn't work and the noise. If you are not used to heavy street noise, beware... It took a few nights to adjust to the heavy noise of cars, motorbikes, buses, trucks etc.... the apartment faces the street and is only a few feet away. 11 July 2013 - 15:55:06

    Thanks to Pierre we had a great Paris vacation. His apartment is in an incredible spot in a gorgeous part of Paris. Plenty of room for our family of 5 including two teenagers! Beds and couch were perfect to sleep on. Bathroom was huge by European standards and overall very very clean. Loved having the expertise of Pierre right downstairs. The apartment views are so very Parisian and beautiful. We loved the Park down the street, and restaurants every night within walking distance. After a long day touring around, this was a perfect retreat. 18 August 2013 - 16:04:34

    Everything was flawless, we were a group of five, with our ages ranging from 13 to 50 and every single one of us loved our stay. Pierre was an incredible host, always there to help us if we need it. 21 June 2014 - 14:54:39

    Nice appartment, amazing location. Pierre was a gracious host, we enjoyed walking around the area, great bakery and restaurants. I would definitely return. The wifi signal could be stronger as remarked by our teenagers, although in the end it was not a big issue. 05 July 2014 - 15:25:39

    I don't know how this place could be any better. Excellent location, extremely clean, very professional owner that is a pleasure to work with. We couldn't have asked for anything more. Thank you for the wonderful stay! 21 October 2014 - 13:36:09

    We stayed 5 days in the apartment. 3 adults and 3 kids. The apartment was clean, homely and perfectly located in a great area. Well kept house in a quiet street. Very secure building. Close to restaurants and Metro stations. The owner was very nice and helpful. He really helped me out to get the Internet working. The only thing I could complain about was that the stove did not work and the TV only had 1 channel. I also had to wait on the street 30 minutes before I got met. But the overall was fantastic and best of all was the location. I can highly recommend this apartment! Thanks for a great stay! 10 November 2014 - 13:45:21

    We had a fabulous time staying here with our two young children (3 year old and 2 month old). The apartment managed to be both adult and child friendly (including having toys and swing in the apartment). It was also close to delicious food (bakeries, chocolates, nicer restaurants) and metro. Pierre was also very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend this apt. 21 November 2014 - 20:08:54

    We stayed in this apartment for 4 days in late July and absolutely loved it. We traveled with 5 people; myself and my husband (early 30s), my brother-in-law (early 20s) and parents-in-law (late 50s). It was very comfortable and fit all of our needs. Pierre was wonderfully attentive and answered all the questions we had about French appliances (and our lack of understanding with them)! This place is literally a block away from the Place des Vosges and convenient to cute shops, bakeries, and metro stations. I would caution that the apartment is up a flight of stairs so those who are not able to carry your baggage up, be forewarned. However, we didn't have any issue. The beds were comfortable and the space was a perfect fit for the five of us. I would definitely stay here again when traveling back to Paris! 06 March 2015 - 16:48:04

    Siamo stati in cinque ospiti di Pierre, ci siamo trovati molto bene. L'appartamento e' situato in un antico palazzo di tre piani a due passi dalla bella Place des Vosges e da piazza della Bastiglia. Ha la fermata della metro 5 Breguet Sabin (aperta nel 1909!) a pochi minuti di strada ma a Parigi e' difficile trovare punti lontani dall'incredibile ed efficiente ragnatela di linee metro'. Nel quartiere, a due passi, ci sono negozi di alimentari, ortofrutta, piccoli ristoranti, e' molto ben servito. Ottimo per quattro persone, il divano letto per la quinta e' un po' scomodo per un adulto pesante ma va benissimo per un giovane, considerando anche il limitato tempo di pernottamento. Avrebbe bisogno di piccole manutenzioni ma francamente tornerei in questo appartamento anche domani! 05 May 2015 - 09:27:44

    The owner was wecolming and extremely helpful. It is a great neighborhood. The Metro is several blocks away that will enable you to see all the Paris sights. The apartment is directly across the street from a grocer (beer & wine) and there are several bakeries within a block and numerous cafes and bistros. It is close to the park surrounded by shops, galleries and the first restaurant in Paris, Bofinger. On the negative side, the steps to the bedrooms are narrow with low ceilings. I would not recommend this apartment for anyone taller than 6'2". 23 May 2015 - 14:48:04

    We stayed there from July 13 2015 to July 20. We had a great time. We were two adults and to kids (14 & 12). Plenty of room for us four. The place is very nice but the location is just perfect. Easy walk to two metro stations, restaurants, bakery, grocery. We had an excellent time in Paris, everything is pretty much accessible by metro. If you can try the little bistro le Tabarin just east of this place, very good food. Everything at the appartment was great, I would definitely recommend this place. 23 July 2015 - 13:02:51

    My family and I were pleasantly surprised at the great location of this apartment. Good restaurants, bakeries, shops, and the metro were all within a moment's walk from the door. We were grateful that the air conditioning worked so well, as there was a heat wave. There was scaffolding on the building during our stay because the building was getting a new roof, so the view out the window was somewhat obstructed by that. I would highly recommend this apartment. 18 August 2015 - 14:31:23

    The location is excellent, super close to Place de Vosges with beautiful galleries, good restaurants, shopping, etc. The apartment sleeps up to 6, with 2 double beds in loft rooms and a fold out couch on main floor. Beds were not super comfortable. Anyone above 5 feet 10 inches will have to duck in the shower. One major plus of the place is the landlord is very helpful. We didn't have much water pressure in the shower so I emailed him, and he had someone come over that day to fix it. A pipe was twisted or something. Really enjoyed our stay here, as we felt like locals in this cute apartment that had all we needed. 07 September 2015 - 09:01:15

    Lappartamento carino, particolare con i due soppalchi, ma piccolo per cinque persone, in particolare per il divano letto, molto scomodo. Necessiterebbe di manutenzione, piccola ristrutturazione, soprattutto il bagno, vecchio, con termosifone non funzionante. Il proprietario molto gentile e disponibile 19 December 2017 - 19:33:00
