The apartment has everything you need. Ideal location, very nice neighbourhood (lots of restaurants and bars), very quiet street
In one of the hypest area of Paris, just off the Marais, close to the Cirque d'Hiver and many restaurants and bars (exact address Passage Saint Sebastien).
The apartment is ideally located to visit Paris. The closest metro stop is Saint Sebastien Froissart (line 8) less than 100m from the building. Walking distance from many hot spots: Bastille (less than 10min), Republique (5min), Hotel de Ville / Cenre Pompidou (15min), Notre-Dame (25min) and for the Marais...you just need to cross the street.
The building itself is quite old but the apartment has recently been renovated. 5th floor, no elevator, full of light, it is approx 28 m2, on 2 floors (one under the roof). It is a typical nice and fully furnished parisian studio (wooden floor, plasma TV, cable, wi-fi, washing machine, dishwasher, Nespresso machine). It is composed of a living room / kitchen and a bathroom on the first floor, a mezzanine with sofa / TV, and a second mezzanine with a bed (just under the roof).
The apartment is ideal for a couple. However, there is a sofa-bed on the first floor that works for for one or two extra people if you need.
Supermarket is just 100m from the building entrance, and there are a lot of nice bars and restaurants in the area!!
The apartment is empty and you will get full access, including cable tv, internet, wi-fi etc.

Nice flat in great area of the city. Easy walking distance to metro, cafes and resturants. Alex sent comprehensive directions and access instructions before we left home which made our arrival at the flat very easy. Thanks Alex.
The host made my girlfriend and myself feel very welcome. The apartment description was spot on and the area was a lovely place where we would be more than happy to stay in again
We stayed in this lovely apartment on the edge of the Marais in January 2015. The description perfectly matched the apartment, which was clean, light and brilliantly located. It is bijou and less suitable for very tall people, but is within easy reach of the Marais with all its shops, restaurants and galleries and Oberkampf for some nightlife. There is a Carrefour downstairs so its really easy to get the supplies in, although be careful not to overload as its 5 flights of stairs to get back up to the apartment. The heating was great so even though it was snowing outside we were cosy. Alex was responsive, easy to contact and provided all information we needed. I would really recommend it for a short break in Paris for all.
Je ne peux malheureusement pas recommander cet appartement en l'état pour des raisons de propreté, d'entretien et de sécurité. A l'écoute de mes remarques, Alex a été extrémement attentionné et coopératif. J'espère que les travaux nécessaires seront réalisés et que cet appartement très bien situé retrouvera tout l'intérêt qu'il mérite.
We enjoyed our stay in this flat. Quiet building and neighborhood, really close to a metro station, and plenty of space for our 3 night stay. Only word of caution - the apartment isn't designed for tall people! The ceilings in the upper areas are quite low, and the shower requires some squatting if you're 5'11" or taller. Again, it was just fine for our 3 days, but it's nice to know that in advance. Plus, the loft bed makes it feel a bit like summer camp, which is fun!!
Alex was very good at communicating both before and during the trip. The flat is in a good location close to the Metro and supermarket.Thank you Alex
The apartment is perfectly located and we had a very nice stay! Alex is easy to communicate with. Thank you!
