Mon expérience chez Marie-J fût très décevante.
Premièrement, il ne faut pas trop être chargé de bagages puisque l'appartement est situé au 3 étage sans ascenseur. De plus, les corridors extérieurs pour s'y rendre sont très sombres. L'appartement est beaucoup trop petit pour 2 personnes. La poutre que l'on voit sur la photo est très massive et en plein milieu de la pièce, il faut donc se pencher sous celle-ci pour circuler dans l'appartement. Je me suis sentie coïncée dans le petit coin d'un grenier (attic). Je n'ai pas trouvé de chauffage mise à part, une barre pour sécher les serviettes!
Il semble y avoir un problème récurrent avec la toilette... à notre arrivée, il y avait une note d'être très vigilant avec celle-ci et ÇA SENTAIT CARRÉMENT LA MERDE dans l'appartement. C'était insupportable! Ma mère et moi avons dû se chercher un hôtel et quitter la place pour les nuits subséquentes. Malheureusement, nous n'avons eu aucun dédommagement...Marie-J Kim voulait nous envoyer un plombier pour le lendemain, comme nous avions seulement 3 jours à Paris je n'avais pas de temps à perdre avec cette gestion de plomberie! Autre point négatif. Vous recevrez par surprise avant votre arrivée un mail non personnalisé de règlements additionnels et de frais supplémentaires si vous abîmez la toilette (apparemment déjà problématique) , la serrure à numéros (déjà défectueuse), ou bien si vous prenez une serviette de trop...et on vous demandera de quitter plus tôt que prévu vers 10h! Même la journée que nous sommes parties plus tôt vu les conditions, elle nous a demandé l'heure de notre départ pour pouvoir envoyer la femme de ménage...pour pouvoir le louer déjà à quelqu'un d'autre avec cet odeur??! Peut-être que je me trompe, mais j'ai eu une impression que le lieu n'est pas entièrement fonctionnel et ce qui compte pour elle c'est le roulement des locataires. Ah oui j'oubliais! L'alarme de feu à sonné à deux reprises durant la nuit! Bref, des vacances pas très reposantes!
Je loue moi-même mon condo ainsi que mon chalet et j'ai trouvé cette situation inacceptable.
Point positif: beau quartier!
If you want to stay in a place where you can barely stand up and can't use a proper toilet, this place is for you. The apartment wouldn't be bad for one person, but it's too close for comfort for two people who enjoy any privacy. Also, not being able to flush toilet paper is just... no. Oh and also there was no toilet paper left for us at the place.
I realize this place was small, and the photographer deserves some kind of Nobel Prize for making it look as big as it did in the photo. The description of the place was added after I booked it or else I would not have.
I asked Marie for some neighborhood recommendations, and did not get a response. I did receive two lengthy form emails describing how much we would be charged if we broke this or that item. Overall it made for a very unpleasant interaction.
Also it was way too expensive for what you get.
Get a place with a host who writes you back and a real toilet.
Pros: the wifi worked and the neighborhood was great.
Marie's flat was an excellent option for daughter and me. We stayed 7 days and had no problems with the internet. The tv wasn't working, but that did not matter to us. I think Marie does a good job of describing the pros and cons of the flat and we found what was described. I chose this flat because of the keyless entry, which worked perfectly every time. The apartment is also very well kitted out, with a washing machine, iron and ironing board, etc. plus, the bed and sheets were very comfortable. Pay attention to the cons and make sure you can live with them. Yes, it's small, yes that beam will catch you in the head at some point, yes, putting the toilet paper into a bag makes you feel like you are camping or in a developing country, but for my daughter and me that was expected - we knew this ahead of time and it was outweighed by the cleanliness, the care that Marie put into the design and her responsiveness to our questions. I would stay there again if I go with my daughter or husband (not both and not with our son also - 2 close people that don't mind being naked or semi-naked around each other is the max)!
Marie's place is perfectly located in a great central neighbourhood. While the street is full of bars and restaurants, the studio is still quiet because there is a beautiful yard separating it from the street. The studio is really small, smaller than what you see on the photos (first thought when I went inside: "I'm not even mad, that's amazing!!" :-)))) ), but it's still nice and arranged with good taste and clever design. The thing that we really disliked is the bathroom - the toilet is not 'normal' and isn't comfortable to use, the sink is so small the water falls down on your feet, the shower doesn't drain the water fast enough... We never met Marie and never spoke to her. The door works with an auto-lock system.
If you just need a private room with good location and you don't have any high expectations, this studio is alright. But if you like to have some comfort also outside your home (like, some living space and nice bathroom), look for something else!!
Location: Perfect. You walk straight into the main part of Le Marais only a couple of blocks from Notre Dame.
Ease of access to apartment: Perfect. The access codes provided ensured that there was no need to schedule a time to meet the host to hand over keys or for any other reason.
Size: You will not believe how small this place is. Despite all the warnings posted by prior guests, the size still shocked me. Partly due to the fact that the listing photos have been taken with multiple different objects in front of the same wall in different photos to give the illusion of space. The main photo is the entire aparment from the doorway plus a tiny shower and toilet to the right.
My wife and I stayed together and we are generally very close but after eight days in this apartment we needed some of our own space. Perfect for a single or a very close couple for a few days.
Fittings: The entire apartment was fitted with flimsy everything. Prior to arriving we received a list of things that could be easily broken and then would need to be paid for by the guests.
Plumbing: As noted previously there is no way to flush toilet paper. This is annoying but isn't that big a deal. However, there is a plumbing or sewage stench that frequently wafted through the apartment. As it was the middle of summer and all the windows were open constantly this was quite unpleasant.
Great place to stay in the heart of Paris. Very small but perfect for one person--and charming.
The flat is in an excellent location close to metro station, super market, bars, restaurants and hotel de villa. It is well kept, the internet works fine and you don't need a key. Marie answers back quickly.
The flat is extremely small and uncomfortable to walk around, not only because of the size but because of the piece of wood in the middle of the flat, so you need to duck to get in the bed. If you are a tall person your feet might be hanging off the bed. After booking the flat a very long list is sent to you of the things you must not do, as well as the cost of them (there is an extra charge if you use more bedding than is provided for you, clog the toilet, or breaking the door handle).
We enjoyed our stay and the flat nevertheless.
