We had a great time in this beautifully designed penthouse. The loft lighting is made for romance and lounging, along with the sound system. I loved every part about this place. It is also located in a very nice and busy neighborhood, where there's morning/night life, restaurants. Yet the apartment is quiet, 5 floors away from the street noise.
Susi greeted us, gave us a tour around the place, and made us feel so welcomed. She also gave us restaurant recommendations and told us about close shops nearby. I would definitely come back here if I could, but preferably with my significant other.

Dear Sir; Due to mistakes in my part,there was some problem to get the keys in the first day.The apartment was just like in the photos,the only problem was the shower arrangement,other ways very comfortable and cozy.The metro was a few blocks away.The neirborhood very likable with many cafes,restaurants,a laundromat,a super and even hair stilist.!!!! Thank to Charlie(neighbor)every thing became (website hidden) is an experience to be lived not only in its many beautiful monuments ,museums etc.but for me also the amiability of e its people and this is something I certainly got in droves.I did not get to know Susie but we spoke ,in the ,phone several times.She seems a very interesting person.
Susi was really great, and her apartment was too! I think it is my favourite apartment I have ever rented in Paris to date (I go often for work). It's comfortable with lots of character. The elevator is a great bonus in Paris too. And the outdoor shower is pretty rad.
This appartement is GOLD! Situated in a perfect neighbourhood of Paris, just next to Le Marais and the Bastille. The street where the app. is placed, is cosy and full of little shops, bars and restaurants. With the metro very closeby, everything is in reach. Our host, Susi, is a very pleasant person, very helpfull and speaks fluently French, English and German. She wasn't there to welcome us, because of a holiday, but her friend Lorinda took perfectly care of everything and we could always reach her in case of any question. The inside of the appartement is fantastic: decoration, furniture, kitchen, bath, terrace, everything feels like home and is inspiring. If you have to choose between a good hotel or this appartment: go for this nice place, you won't regret it!
