CENTRALLY LOCATED IN HISTORICAL MARAIS NEIGHBORHOOD...
A very nice, bright,clean and tidy, newly renovated 4th floor apartment with gorgeous views on National Archives and private mansions, located in a 17th-century Marais building with old, exposed, structural beams, in a charming, very central and safe area.
Located a couple a meters from the National Archives (where Sofia Coppola shot scenes of her movie "Marie-Antoinette" in 2006)
Among the famous inhabitants of the street were Madame de Sévigné (phone number hidden)) and Pierre Augustin Caron de Beaumarchais (phone number hidden)) who lived there from 1756.
The building is at the corner of two beautiful, historical streets of old Paris, with great views from the windows on:
Hôtel de Saint-Aignan (now the Museum of Jewish Art and History)
Hôtel de Montmor, one of the most exquisite Parisian private mansions, built in 1623, now hosting a top-model agency and two famous art galleries (Marian Goodman & JGM)
Hôtel de Clisson & Hôtel de Soubise (now National Archives)
The loft sleeps 4 people comfortably in 2 distinct spaces:
- 1 queen size (140x190 cm), very comfortable, high quality bed (spring mattress) in the bedroom,
- 1 king-size (160x200cm), very comfortable, high-quality leather sofa - fold out bed in the living room.
The bedroom and the living room can be separated by unfolding a specially designed wooden screen. When the screen is kept open, the apartment is a spacious loft.
Upon special request, an extra, single mattress can be added for a 5th guest.
The 4 windows are soundproof and have light-blocking curtains, tropical solid wooden floor.
3 windows are on one side of the bulding, the 4th one is on another one, allowing a nice cross breeze between them when open. Heat is never extreme in the apartment, but a complimentary fan can be provided if necessary.

Please contact me with any questions you may have! And let me know if you have suggestions or special needs to better the apartment even more!
The apartment is on the 4th floor - there is no elevator, but the stairs are very even and easy to climb. A couple of guests in their 70ies had no problem with them. And the combination of the views and light in the apartment will reward your effort!
All guests are welcome, whatever their nationalities, status (singles, couples, friends, families, LGBT travellers...) & so on...
The only restrictions is that this is a strictly non-smoking apartement, thanks in advance for your understanding!
ALSO HAVE A LOOK AT MY OTHER APARTMENT ON SAINT LOUIS ISLAND WITH AMAZING RIVER VIEWS! It is airbnb rooms/513757
This is a quiet parisian building, inhabited by Parisians. Some of them are old and need the building to remain quiet...
So please be kind to the neighbors and not too noisy ;-) in order for me to be able to offer my apartment in the future !
Strictly non-smoking apartment.
Thanks in advance for your understanding!
Me and my family had a nice stay at Boris place. It's located in a lovely area of Paris within walking distance of a lot of interesting sites. Communication with Boris was great and he was quick to respond any concerns. But there are a few things that could have been better. For instance, the apartment was very poorly cleaned upon our arrival and we had to clean it ourselves. Also the kitchen could have been better equipped (there were for example no kitchen knives).
The accommodation is perfect for 2-3 people but it was a bit too small for a family of five.
Boris was an excellent host, and he was quick to respond to any queries that I may have.
This is a cool Parisian apartment which means that it is petite, but we had 4 adult male staying together and we survived and enjoyed our stay there!
One thing to note is that you have to take the stairs to the 4th floor, and have to remember to turn on the lights on. The apartment is clean, with working utilities, and have fast Wifi internet access. It is located at the chique and bohemian Le Marais district with many cool shops, cafe and restaurant. Even though there is a bar and restaurant below, we didn't hear any noise whatsover at night. It was a great experience.
It was a perfect apartment for a girls weekend. Close to everything. Lovely renovation. And excellent host- Boris was really accommodating and professional. I will definitely book this again.
Very nice location, and an excellent apartment. All amenities were as advertised, and Boris was very helpful in dealing with Paris. Would highly recommend!
Great loft apartment with good facilities in a fantastic location. We are a family of 5 who have never used airbnb before and though we were a little apprehensive beforehand, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this cosy alternative to the expense of 2 hotel rooms, though the 5th bed is a mattress on the floor that won't suit everyone. Communication with Boris was great and he had someone meet us on arrival and was on hand when we had a couple of queries. Would definitely consider rebooking should we return to Paris.
Great appt. Boris was very helpful. Awesome location and clean room. Thanks again!
I had a lovely stay at Boris's flat. I was met by a very helpful gentelman who helped me check in and get acquainted with the neighborhood. Absolutely no problems and a really fantastic location. My wife and I enjoy walking so it was especially nice because we were able to walk to the major sites along the river and there is a Metro stop two blocks away. Can't say enough about how amazing our vacation was. I was lucky to have stayed here. Would definitely stay again.
