It is located in the Marais (3rd district) on a small, quiet street which hosts the oldest house of Paris as well as art galleries and charming little boutiques like just next door the friendly Mediterranean delicatessen shop “Abruzze” where Laurent and Jean-Louis will conquer your heart with their big warm smile and your tummy with their selection of dangerously yummy cheese, salamis and wines that all fit perfectly for a quality-time on the apartment’s terrace.
The flat is located in a central and safe area in a cross section of the lively “rue Montorgueil” and “rue de Bretagne”, “Le Marais” gay district and the modern art museum “Georges Pompidou”.
It is very well connected. 7 subway lines are reachable within 5 to 10 minutes walk: Arts et Métiers (line 3 & 11), Etienne Marcel (line 4) and Châtelet-les Halles (line 14, RER A, B & D).
Other Things to Note
The caution is a pre-authorisation on your credit card made and fully managed by Airbnb. It is only in case of damages inside the apartment. 300 Euros amount is high but it is related to the level and price of the equipment in the apartment.
I stayed almost 10 years in this apartment where I really enjoyed living.
I hope you will enjoy the apartment cachet that oscillates between tradition and modernity. Its central location is ideal for people who like to combine sightseeing, shopping, good little restaurants and nightlife. For moments of relaxation, I've put at your disposal some coffee, tea, DVDs, CDs and books. Please feel free to make good use of them during your stay.
To enable as many people as possible to enjoy the apartment and its equipment, I count on you to take good care of. I also count on you to respect the neighbourhood avoiding annoying noises, the same way it will to preserve your nights.
The rules are rather simple:
- Reduced noise level after 10:00 pm
- Noise level (voice, television, music…) imperceptible for the neighbours from midnight to 8:00 am
We are trying to make our guests feel at home. Therefore we would highly appreciate you could take good care of the apartment and the neighbourhood, as if it was yours.
I wish you a pleasant stay!
The apartment is very nice, cozy and very bright with windows on both sides of the apartment. The location is also great, we enjoyed very much our stay. Alexi was very accommodating and welcoming! Next time in Paris will come back again if available.
Alex was out of town when I arrived but I got the keys easily from a friend of his and the apartment is great, even nicer than the photos. It has big windows on both the south and north sides, lots of light and lovely views over the rooftops. The little terrace is wonderful. And the six flights of stairs is excellent cardio!
We have just returned from a truly wonderful stay in Alexis' apartment. The apartment is every bit as good as described online, in fact even better. It was warm, comfortable, very well equipped, homely (if your home is stylish and immaculately clean!) and in a great location. Alexis was a fantastic host; providing informative and timely communication. Unfortunately we didn't get to meet him but were delighted to pick up our keys from Josselin, who was helpful & charming. My French is not good so I was pleased both A & J had such good English.
I have been recommending their apartment to all my friends, particularly the more energetic ones, as it has to be said the 6 flights of stairs are a challenge! That said we are a couple in our 50s, I am also still recovering from last year's chemotherapy treatment and STILL managed to do the stairs. And the height of the flat means it has beautiful light. The effort is well worth it, and entitles one to indulge in an extra croissant, or three.
We will definitely be coming back!!
Merci Alison for your lovely comments. You were such nice guests. Josselin really appreciated your kindness and vision of life. I wish you all the best for the future!
By the way I really like the way you have compensated the effort of climbing 6 floors. This is such a brilliant and sensible excuse for indulging in an extra croissant! ;-)
We had a wonderful stay in Paris at Alexis' flat. Lovely top floor, quiet, airy, and bright. Had everything we needed, and perfect for our romantic getaway to Paris. Alexis was an excellent host, very easy to communicate with, and helpful with suggestions, and recommendations. Would highly recommend!
Perfect Parisian apartment at excellent location in Le Marais! It was very easy to find address and access the building, and even though the six floors may leave you short-breathed, once you get to the apt and see the lovely terrace with the amazing views you will think that it is totally worth it!! Try not to bring big bags and you'll be all set :) Apt was super clean and tidy with everything that you need during your stay.
I will definitely recommend this place for anyone visiting Paris as I've stayed in other Airbnb places in the area but this is by far my favorite one!!
Alex was a very attentive and nice host as well. He left us clear instructions on how to pick up keys and he checked in with us every day to ensure everything was ok with our stay. He was even kind enough to accommodate a late check-out. Definitely one of the nicest and most efficient hosts I have ever dealt with :) Merci Alex!
Good location near everything just had a little hot water problem the first night and the flat is on the 6th floor with no lift in the building that was only annoying part to get to the apartment. All and all good experience
The apartment is lovely, it is compact but has everything you need for an enjoyable stay in the Marais. It is in a great location, close to restaurants, and easy to walk or get the metro to all the sights in Paris. Alex was a great host, very quick to reply to emails, and easy to collect and drop of the key.
There were some nice touches with teas and coffees available.
If I was coming to Paris again, I would choose to stay in this apartment.
