Stephane & Ivan were great when I arrived but I did not meet them as they stay in the south of france during the summer months. I got the key from their friend down the street who was super nice and friendly. They were super informative about the neighborhood and what places they liked to eat and drink at. The apartment was clean and had nice amenities. I was thrilled that I chose to stay in the Marais as it is a great neighborhood to be in and also a great starting point to walk around Paris. I would stay at Stephane & Ivan place again my next trip to Paris.
Ce fût un excellent séjour lors de notre passage sur Paris. Stephane et Ivan ont rendu notre séjour très agréable. La communication était très facile et les réponses toujours rapides. Malgré leur absence de la ville, le processus pour les clés étaient bien facile. L'appartement est très bien situé, propre et fonctionnel. Très tranquille le soir.
Prenez note que si vous avez de la difficulté avec les marches, l appartement n'a pas d ascenseur et est au quatrième étage. La douche est très petite mais très bon débit d eau chaude.
We Visit Paris regularly. For a couple, This is a fantastic place to stay. Great Neighborhood with easy access to multiple metro lines to get about the WHOLE city...and more than reasonable price for Marais. The apartment is very clean and secure. I did see a complaint about smoke smell...but that was from some neighbors and if you have the windows open it disappears rather fast and was not a constant. Stephane & Ivan were some of the best hosts I have used. If schedule allows I will stay here on my future visits to Paris.
Perfect location you are literally in Paris centre with little need to use Metro. Great restaurants and shops very nearby the flat. The flat is clean with all necessary amenities. Wifi is fast. Although I haven't met Stephane and Ivan in person we had a long chat on phone and they are super helpful hosts. However we did feel there was a smell in the flat as reported by previous guests. I mentioned it personally to them and I know Stephane and Ivan were going to look into this though so it should not discourage you to book this flat! Thank you Stephane and Ivan for a lovely weekend!
Our hosts very most welcoming (on the phone) when we arrived, and provided useful information about Internet access and restaurants in the area. There were numerous milks and phamplets in the apartment to acquaint us with Paris and sights to be sign. The apartment was as discribed and the Marais is one of the bst areas areas to stay in Paris. It has easy acces to the Metro, to major sights, and is a real neighborhood.
So the reviews in general are accurate so I will be quick and straight forward with this one.
The Good: Location is excellent - cannot get better right in the centre of the Marais, the hosts were very helpful, responded quickly to messages, very quiet at night, wifi worked well - has everything you would need.
The Bad: The apartment smelt very strongly of stale cigarettes and dog to the point where we spent as little time as possible in the apartment. We were very surprised that only 1 other person mentioned the smell on the reviews.
The pillows were the lumpiest we have ever experienced - They seemed to have some sort of pillow cellulitis they were that lumpy :)
Although it has large windows it was quite dark. The shower was miniscule but had good hot water.
The apartment seems larger on the photos than in real life - the bed is literally right next to the sofa, but is big enough for a couple.
Because of the smell and lumpy pillows we would not stay here again. Sorry guys!
We are sorry that you have encountered problems due to smoking and dog smell.
We affirm that the apartment is no smoking (we even don't smoke and there is a smoke detector) and we haven't dog.
This problem is probably due to the behavior of the last guest.
that's because you don't saw a similar comment about it.
We rent our apartment during our permanence in the south of France. We can not check ourselves the state of the flat end of each rental.
I would be myself in the apartment next week to check these points. I take the opportunity to replace the pillows that made you spend a bad night.
However, and to reassure our future guests, we wish to clarify that the photos are perfectly corresponding to our apartment! Also one ever complained of what you say (the apartment is admittedly small, but well appointed and with all the facilities, check guest comments that are spent several days).
It is not our intention to cheat on the characteristics of our apartment.
