The Space

This is a very small studio ideally placed.
On foot, you are:
- Ten minutes from the Place des Vosges and the Place de la Bastille,
- Five minutes from the Place de la République,
- Two minutes from the Market Enfants Rouges,
- Fifteen minutes from Beaubourg (Centre Pompidou)
- Ten minutes from the Canal Saint Martin (trendy)
Around the apartment, there are art galleries, restaurants and trendy bars, upscale and popular. Rue Jean-Pierre Timbaud going to Belleville (the neighborhood of Edith Piaf and Daniel Pennac) is full of bars and restaurants youth.
Our favorite bar: the Circus Bar next to the Cirque d'Hiver (good music, cheap drinks, super friendly staff, frequented by artists and circus staff).
Metro Line 8 is a two minute walk. Lines 5 and 9 is five minutes. Line 1 is ten minutes.
Bikes : there is a bike staion "Velib" at the foot of appartment and many other in vicinity - (website hidden)
Hyper Light (two windows) and not directly overlooked.
Very quiet, top floor.
The kitchen area is well separated.
The shower and toilet is separated by a sliding door.
The only two drawbacks are its small size and the lack of lift.
The equipment is standard: fridge, 2 ring, shower, WC.
The bed is a good Ikea that folds the day to have room.
Wifi and a small stereo. No TV.
It is free when I'm not in Paris, Friday afternoon to Tuesday morning and during my vacation. Therefore commendable for a week of visiting Paris or a weekend getaway.

In prime:
You do not need to bring your sheets, duvet cover and pillowcases and towels. I will put at your disposal.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Location of the apartment was excellent! Apartment was surrounded by supermarkets, cafes, bars and restaurant. It was very near to the metro as well. The apartment was cozy and clean. The view that it had was incredible!

    The host, Gilles was very nice, he helped us carried our luggage all the way up six storeys! Would definitely come back again and will highly recommend it!

  • Gilles is great! Communication is efficient and he makes sure I have all the information I need. The facilities are basic, apartment is small, but works well for one person.

    Location is excellent, near bakeries, supermarkets, cafes and metro stations. The rotisserie just down the road sells amazing poulet at an affordable price.

    It's on the sixth floor, up a steep flight of stairs, fyi to those with huge luggage. Gilles would warn you and check if you're ok with that before he approves your booking :)

  • Right in hart of Le Marais, this tiny and cosy studio apartment ( perfect for one person and good for a short stay for two people) gives you the opportunity to easily explore the city. Located very close to metro station, a lot of nice coffees, restaurant and a very cool market within walking distance. Even if we didn't meet Gilles personally, he has been very supportive and kind via e-mail. As soon as you see the view from the two windows you immediately forget the six floor with no lift. High racomande. Thanks Gilles,see you soon

  • Gilles was a great host, responsible and responsive. Our schedules didn't match up but he was most helpful online throughout the trip. The studio though small was just enough space for my boyfriend and I. The building itself is a bit old, but that was definitely part of its charm. The sofa bed was very comfortable and the view of the surrounding rooftops made walking up those winding staircases to the 6th floor worth it every time. Conveniently located next to a metro stop and lots of good shops and restaurants near by. Would love to stay here again on my next visit to Paris (hopefully soon!)

  • Gilles is a great host - very helpful and kindly helped me carry my suitcase up the 6 floors of stairs.

    The location could not be better - such a good part of Le Marais. Rose Bakery is less than 5 minutes away, as is Merci and lot's of other great cafes, stores and metro stations.

    The apartment is small, as to be expected for a studio in Paris. Perfect for one person! And the view is beautiful. Would recommend.

  • Gilles' apartment is quite small but perfect for a couple staying in Paris for a few days. It is conveniently located, Gilles is very friendly and communication and check-in was flawless. Thanks a lot!

  • We had an amazing time here at Gilles place in Marais - just what you need for a few days in Paris. The apartment is small but perfect for two people to get by. Fantastic location also. Thanks for having us Gilles!

    Response from Gilles:

    I had to cancel the booking for work in the neighboring apartment caused a lot of dust and noise floor and water cuts. Now the work is finished except the wallpaper :)
    J'avais dû annuler cette réservation car des travaux dans l'appartement voisin provoquaient beaucoup de poussière et de bruit à l'étage et des coupures d'eau. Maintenant les travaux sont finis sauf les papiers peints :)
