Alexandre, was a great host. He accommodated our earlier than requested check in and check out times and recommended a great Jazz place for us to visit.
The neighborhood is fantastic, Les Marais is my favorite neighborhood in Paris, you have a full selection of local restaurants and bars, and is perfect for shopping..
The flat is really big for Paris Standards and is decorated tastefully.
It was always at a great temperature even if it was warm outside- there is a good distance between the rooms. we also enjoyed sitting at the living room and enjoying some local wine and cheese.
thanks a lot Alexandre
Alexandre was a very good host. Excellent and prompt communication (very good English). Very responsive. Terrific neighborhood-shopping, walking, eating, sites. Apartment is spacious and stylish with a pleasant bohemian feel. Some deferred maintenance was irritating: coffeemaker barely works, toaster also tricky, one living room couch cushions falling apart and leaking feathers, hard to get washing machine to work. My wife smelled mildew and had a hard time sleeping. If you're allergic, be careful. Also, fridge smelled bad on arrival. So a bit on the shabby side, not luxurious IMO. Also mediocre light in kitchen if you plan to do significant food prep.
Thank you Peter for your very helpful feedback. For future guests' information : coffee maker, toaster and the old living room couch will be replaced over the summer, frequent rentals tend to overuse these appliances and I guess I waited a little too long before replacing them, but this will be taken care of now.
All the best,
Alexandre de La Baume was a flawless host, the apartment was perfect, and we all agreed it was in the best neighborhood in Paris. Clean, comfortable, and well-equipped apartment, and Alexandre was magnificently helpful.
We could not have been happier with Alexandres's apartment in the Marais. He was a wonderful host - very attentive and responsive to all our needs. The apartment was lovely - very comfortable, nicely decorated and in an excellent location. The apartment is perfect for two couples - 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms on separate sides of the apartment. His nespresso machine (which we used every day) was a hit - made the best espresso. The Marais is a fabulous location - we have stayed in many areas of Paris in the past and this was our favorite. It is lively, filled with wonderful restaurants yet the apartment is on a side street so you are not inundated with noise. We would absolutely recommend both the apartment and Alexandre without hesitation. We would definitely rent this apartment again.
We were 2 couples staying for 7 nights in this apartment. The location couldn't be better. Le Marais is the most happening district in Paris at the moment. All the shops and cafes are just round the corners. We had many tasty crepes and falafel on Rue des Rosiers. There is a great coffee bar on Rue Rambuteau, next to the excellent bakery Pain de Sucre (open only after 10am), for those who needs a real coffee/latte, not the french coffee cream ... The apartment offer good privacy for 2 couples as the rooms were in separate corners. It is spacious and stay true to pictures. We walked to Notre Dame on a nice sunny morning with no trouble. The BHV in Le Marais is a great department store for those looking to buy french products. We will not hesitate to stay here again when we are next in Paris!
Wir (4 Erwachsene und 2 Kinder) haben 5 wunderbare Tage in Paris verbracht. Alexandres Wohnung ist genauso, wie man sie sich vorstellt: sehr ruhig, groß und sauber, hell, super Küche + Geräte, gute Betten, sehr nette Nachbarn. Die Lage ist unschlagbar: Man kann alles bis auf Mont Martre und Versailles zu Fuß errreichen. Alle Cafés, Restaurants, Läden Supermarkt und Bäckerei sind um die Ecke. Alexandre ist ein toller Gastgeber, gibt alle Infos, ist sehr hilfsbereit und unkompliziert.
Wenn wir wieder nach Paris kommen, wollen wir nur bei Alexandre wohnen!
Alexandre was prompt, helpful, friendly and made our arrival and departure proceed smoothly. he helped make our stay a success.
Alexandre's apartment in Le Marais is everything you see in the photos and much more: a truly lovely place with a feel of European elegance in its refined furnishings, handsome hardwood floors, high ceilings and many windows filling it with so much light.
We were two couples and very comfortably shared the space, starting from the morning hours when we used the apartment's espresso maker for cappuccino at home (after getting croissant and pain au chocolate at the local boulangerie!), and again at night after a day of walking around Paris, came back to have an aperitif in the lovely living room while listening to classical music on the stereo. The bedrooms are beautiful, spacious and quiet. Rue du Perche is small and quaint, right in the heart of Le Marais, ideal for shopping, exploring and dining.
And Alexandre is such a charming young man. He was on hand for any need, keeping in touch with texts and often went out of his way to help us, doing more than what might be asked of a host. His gracious help on our last day of meeting up with us, reserving a taxi and taking care of our needs, well over our check-out time, was greatly appreciated.
Merci beaucoup Alexandre, for your hospitality, we hope to return soon!
An excellent and spacious accommodation, wonderfully located for exploring the Marais and environs, complete with modern appliances, bathrooms and functional kitchen, fast internet, as well as a huge living room. Alexandre was a perfect host, on-time and highly communicative, and our stay for 4 adults from California went really smoothly. We recommend this property highly and would be pleased to stay here again.
Alex is really a nice person, and he welcome us and waited for several hours.
His apartment is big and confortable, and it's in the center of Paris, quite and near lot of shops. I will come next time, and I recommend it to others.
