1 Bloc from Hôtel de ville, the political heart of Paris.
Right in the center of Paris, the Hôtel de Ville district lies next to the Saint-Merri district, on the right bank of the Seine, opposite Île de la Cité.
An area with many businesses, it is one of the capital’s focal points.
It is also famous for the many exhibitions held there.
The perfect location for visiting Paris Around Place de l'Hôtel de Ville there are several main roads.
Rue de Rivoli, which leads to the Louvre, offers a good view from a beautiful, green setting of the
Perpendicular to Rue de Rivoli, Rue Beaubourg leads to the Centre d’Art Moderne Georges Pompidou. A small detour takes you to another flamboyant, Gothic building: the Eglise Saint-Merri.
Behind the government building, the Eglise Saint-Gervais conceals its Gothic structure behind a more traditional facade. You get splendid views walking along the Seine between the Arcole and Notre-Dame bridges.
Even if you aren't going there for shopping, the Hôtel de Ville bazaar (BHV) is worth a visit: this large store has had a heritage emblematic of the area since it opened in 1856.

One good tip :

There are no house rules - just a little bit of mutual respect.
Please, no pets.
Please avoid to make any excessive noise or loud music
Patrice made us feel very welcome. The apartment is beautiful and in a perfect location (just a few mins walk from Notre Dame and a great boulangerie next door). The area has a nice vibe and is great for gay & lesbian travellers, with most of the bars and cafes being less than 5 mins walk away. The restaurant Patrice recommended was also exceptional and reasonably priced. Can't think of a bad thing to say about our stay, will definitely take this apartment again when we next visit Paris.
This is an exceptional 1 bedroom just as the description says. Charming, in the heart of activity -- with four restaurants right outside our door -- and very livable for the week we stayed. It also comes with an exceptional host… who guided the taxi driver when we were wandering a bit, who provided us with guidance on how to use the Metro, where we might want to eat, when we might want to wander Le Marais (Sunday, the streets are closed to motor traffic), and who we could call for help (him). And… Patrice ordered us our taxi for the day we were leaving assuring that we got to the airport on time. A place to call home for whatever time spent in Paris.
Patrice was a charming and most helpful host. The apartment, exactly as described, was perfect. Comfortable, well equipped and furnished. The location is excellent within easy reach of many of the main attractions of the city yet set in an area with a character all of its own which it is a delight to explore. We enjoyed our stay enormously and will be back!
We stayed for two weeks in January 2015. The apartment is very centrally located in the Marais, but still quiet (it faces into a courtyard). It is very comfortable, cosy for the winter months and well appointed. We particularly enjoyed the boulangerie located just next door and the Pick Clops bar a short way down the road. We were beginning to feel almost like locals by the time we had to leave. Patrice was a wonderful host and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend this apartment and would happily stay here again.
Patrice is a perfect host.
He is always avaiable for great tips and booking for us restaurants and taxi.
The apartment is in a great location, in a beautiful area and it is exactly as you can see it in these pictures. I recommend this house.... it is really fantastic!!!
Patrice is a hands-on, excellent host. He's a clear and fast communicator. The apartment is in a brilliant part of town. I can't think of anything that could be improved. The host, location and apartment are all A++. Thanks Patrice, we'll see you again some day. We love your city!
