About This Listing
In the heart of the old Paris (Arts et Métiers, 5 mn to Le Marais and République), a duplex on the 4th and 5th floor of a 17th century building, a charming 2 bedroom apartment - just renovated. And made to be extremely comfortable and cozy for families - and even with young children, or for couples. Up to 5 people can sleep in the apartment + a baby if need be.
You can either cook in the cozy kitchen/living area, rest on the sofa-bed overlooking the lovely Rue du Vertbois, or look at the stars on the bed under the rooftop.
The apartment is in the same building as the famous restaurant l'Ami Louis, where Bill Clinton, Woody Allen and Jacques Chirac have been seen before among others. The neighbourhood is 5 minutes from the Centre Pompidou, 5 minutes from Le Marais and from République.
The pictures are from how it was before we did works recently. While waiting for the Airbnb photographers to come, imagine that It will look even better than this!!
Please keep the apartment clean and in good condition.
In the room upstairs: do not leave the stores of the windows closed during the day (sun and heat damages its capacity to stay closed)
Do not attempt to walk on the roof!
When you shut the entrance door from the inside, check to see if the door is well shut, it is not easy at first sight.
Please do not bring pets. And avoid smoking in the apartment.
What can we say; this apartment felt like our very own pied-à-terre in Paris. Our family of 4 loved everything about the place. Our kids (12 and 13) slept on the living room futon while we had our own private loft. The area (Marais) is beautiful and the location perfect to get around the city easily by foot or Metro. We hope to return to our home away from home sometime soon.
We had a perfekt week in Ilanas wunderful appartement: It was clean and cosy with "good vibes". Enough space for 4 people, luxurious for 2 und well equiped. It is located in a calm road in Marais-quarter, ideally located between a triangle of metro-stations, and close to an Velib-bicycle-station and a good Monoprix-supermarket. We can fully recommend this nice Maisonette-Appartement!
We enjoyed our stay in Ilana's appartment! No risk of claustrophobia since it is very spacious. No risk of depression since the white walls and large windows on both sides of the living space make it very bright and cheerful. The pictures really do not show the advantages. If you do not mind the stairs, this is the best place to explore Paris, with a supermarket and a velib station nearby! The communication with Ilana as well as with the check-in check-out service were both flexible and professional. I can only recommend it.
