This 55 m² apartment is situated on the fourth floor of an 19th-century building (with an elevator). The main entrance gate is protected by an intercom. The apartment has southern exposure. The entrance door opens into a hall leading to the living room, the kitchen and the bedroom. The elegant living room has a brown-parqueted floor, white walls and numerous books. Since this room is decorated with antique and some vintage/modern decorative items and paintings it has a friendly atmosphere. The very quiet and sunny bedroom is parqueted as well and has white painted walls with a king size bed (the mattress is new and very comfortable, 1m80 large)). The decoration of this room is more contemporary than the rest of the apartment.
The kitchen is both convenient and elegant. It has white-tiled walls and floor. It is also well equipped.
The apartment has a large cable TV, a stereo, a DVD player and a mac. There is access to a fiber connection (very high-speed WIFI) in the all apartment.
The nearest metro station is Sebastien froissart (Line 8).
This charming apartment can accommodate two persons and is perfect to discover this lively and historical area of Paris.
The Marais area is known for its pre-Revolution architecture enclosing a substantial number of points of interest. It is also very close from the Place de la Bastille (two metro stations) and Place des Vosges where there is a great choice of restaurants, bars, cafes as well as the famous Opera Bastille.
The district is friendly and cosmopolitan and there are all sorts of essential shops, bakeries, groceries and services in the neighborhood. This is a central area, very convenient to travel all around Paris. The apartment is also very close to "rue de Bretagne" with its wide choice of quality food products, restaurants, cafes, and other services. It is also near Beaubourg's National Museum of Modern art. It is short walking distance to points of interest such as the Seine River, the Notre Dame Cathedral on Ile de la Cité, the Ile Saint Louis, and the Louvre.
We loved to stay at Olivier's apartment..it's near everything and very comfortable place. He helped us get to the apartment and was very concerned when we left. Def going to stay on his apartment when we return to Paris! Thank you Olivier!
This apartment (and Olivier) lived up to all of our hopes and expectations. Olivier met my wife and showed her around and had purchased some nice groceries for us which was terrific.
The apartment was clean, and as advertised in the pictures. It was convenient to walk to most sights and a block from the metro for further sites. The wifi and cable worked. Be sure to try 134 RDT bakery up the street, voted top croissants and baguettes in paris (the pain chocolate was my favorite). Overall a great first experience with air BNB.
Olivier's apartment was the perfect location for our quick 4 day trip. The apartment decor is tres chic, charming and modern parisian. The bedroom is courtyard facing with a comfy bed and black out shades. The living room is just divine to relax with a glass of wine or tea with many many amazing books. Olivier was a good host and checked in on us and even a few essentials in the fridge for us. I will stay here again when I return to Paris next year.
Merci beaucoup Olivier!
As all the other reviewers have mentioned, this was absolutely the perfect place to stay in Paris. Quite unbelievable! While we have been to Paris a few times this was our first experience in an apartment, and such a homely and beautiful one that it added a whole new dimension to the city itself.
The apartment is perfectly set up with all that one could possibly need - or not - umbrellas which we really made use of during our stay, adapter, an apple computer which Olivier had set up with a separate user name and password for us, TV which was of course not used in a city like Paris, an extremely comfortable bed and pillows, good linens, a selection of toiletries and a fridge completely stocked with groceries, ham and smoked salmon! There was also a good stock of guide books and maps, one of which I unfortunately left behind in a cab, but Olivier glossed over it.
The apartment itself within one of the lovely old buildings in the Marais, is very comfortable for a couple, and exuded a simple, restful elegance. Very understated and beautiful. And the top to bottom arrangement of stacked bookshelves added to the ambience. Neighbours were friendly and helpful, and the building itself built around an internal courtyard was very well maintained.
The area too is very accessible to most places one would wish to visit in Paris, at least the first time around - Paris contains too much to cover in a single visit, and even the same places never lose their charm! The area is vibrant and humming, and full of places to visit and unexpected discoveries.
But above all, in the end one remembers the kindness of the host, a very gentle and courteous young man, whose fine sensibilities and sweetness of nature is reflected in the charming home he has created. Thank you Olivier.
This apartment was exactly as presented on the website through the photos. It is well located (just a block and a half from the closest Metro stop) and within easy walking distance of Place des Vosges and the area of Saint Paul as well as the Bastille. There are many neighborhood restaurants to choose from if you don't feel like eating in. However, the apartment is fully equipped with a stove, refrigerator, washer and dryer and every appliance you could want.
The apartment was very clean, well appointed and the bed is most comfortable. There is no actual closet but Olivier has made a place for guests to hang and store their clothes which we used as well as working out of our small suitcases.
Other wonderful features provided by the host include an excellent computer with full access to speedy internet, a large TV, movies, and music. There was nothing lacking.
Finally, I cannot say enough complimentary things about our host. Upon first contact when enquiring about the apartment and its exact location, Olivier responded within several hours. Every time it was necessary to contact him about a detail, he answered promptly and with helpful information. Additionally, he stocked the apartment with lovely food, flowers (for my husband's birthday) and a bottle of wine. We never expected such hospitality but it was sincerely appreciated.
It was a real pleasure staying in this apartment for the 12 nights we were there and having Olivier provide so wonderfully for our visit. I would recommend this rental with no hesitation. We would love to return some day.

Olivier was the perfect host. He left food & other supplies for us & kept in regular contact to make sure everything was ok. The apartment was very nice, clean & in a great location. Thank you very much Olivier. We would stay here again without hesitation.

I would recommend this gorgeous place to any other individual or couple wishing to stay in a great part of the Marais. a perfect location and walking distance to everything you need.
we loved staying here and will definitely be back!
thank you Olivier for making our stay so welcome.
Fantastic apartment in the Marais - our favourite area of Paris.
The apartment is the perfect size for a couple, with a bedroom, small kitchen, and a very nice living room to relax in. It's quiet, clean, and in a great location.
Olivier is the perfect host - he got in touch with us before the trip with information, maps, and pictures of the area and the apartment, and met us when we arrived to show us through the flat. He even booked a taxi for us on the day we left.
Tips: try breakfast or lunch just around the corner at Merci, and dinner at Au Passage (reservations required!)
This is the place to stay in Paris!
This beautiful apartment is located in what has to be one of the best areas of Paris; the Haut Marais. You are walking distance from all the great cafes, restaurants, galleries and boutiques of the Marais district and close to the metro, velib stations and bus stops. It's also a very central area to connect to other parts of Paris.
The apartment itself is stunning. It's quiet, comfortable, with every amenity you need. It's spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated, very comfortable, with a good amount of space for 2 people. Everything worked fine; we had no problems with the building, apartment, internet, TV, utilities etc. Everything is there for you, including cooking utensils and supplies if you're feeling inspired after a day at the market.
Olivier is a great host who personally welcomes you to the apartment, and gives great information about his place and the area. He's friendly, helpful, and considerate. He touched base with us during our stay to ensure all was going well which was very thoughtful.
I highly recommend this apartment. It is a wonderful place to call home during your trip to Paris. As a first time user of Airbnb, I couldn't have wished for a better experience. I'm already planning our next trip back.
What a great apartment! We saw the beautiful pictures and couldn't wait to arrive in this little slice of paradise in Le Marais. It's the perfect space for a couple and a perfect location where all of Paris is walkable! Olivier is a great guy and ensured we had everything we needed for a pleasant stay.
Stay here, I recommend it. We had such a great time, 9 nights of beautiful Paris is a beautiful apartment.
