We are in the heart of Paris with a great view. Many major sites are within easy walking distance. We are near public transport. The district is lively with many bars and restaurants that are open late. It is very safe and our building is secure.
A stylish room in artist's penthouse in central Paris near the Pompidou Center. The apartment has a conservatory giving onto a rooftop terrace with beautiful views over the Paris rooftops to the Eiffel Tower and the Sacre Coeur. Easy walking distance to the river Seine, the Louvre, Pompidou Centre and Notre Dame. And direct train access from the airport. The apartment is accessed by a lift to the sixth floor.
You will be staying in a private bedroom near to the front door on a separate floor from the hosts. Your room has a full sized double bed, table, and cupboard space for hanging clothes. Free internet is available. There is also a kettle, complimentary tea and coffee. This bedroom is next to a modern shower room, to be shared with the hosts. Towels and bath robes are provided and there is a hair dryer and iron should you need them. There is also a washer-drier available at no extra cost.
The hosts live upstairs where there is a beautiful living room where we work, as well as the kitchen, conservatory and small outside terrace.
We offer a continental breakfast with cereal, freshly baked baguette, croissants, yogurts, orange juice, tea and coffee, served in the conservatory room overlooking the rooftops.
When we are at home we can share a coffee over breakfast with you to help you plan the day. Generally at 7pm we are able to share a drink with you, should you wish.
Simon loves cooking and by arrangement if we are home you can join us for supper most nights for €22 for a 3 course meal. Also house red wine is available at €2 per glass or €10 for an excellent bottle.
We also can extend the breakfast to a full English brunch on Sundays for €8/person.
This is the heart of Paris, on the edge of the pedestrianised Marais. Many of the major sites are within walking distance. You are a short walk from the Pompidou center, river Seine, the Louvre, the Left Bank, Place des Vosges, and Notre Dame.
Our district is very lively with all the bars and restaurants you could possibly want. It is very safe, including late at night. There is simply no better location to be in in Paris. There are designer shops, bars, clubs, restaurants in abundance.
You can get to most places on foot. Should you need the metro or a bus there are many options on our doorstep, including the Chatelet-Les-Halles transport hub with metro and RER (Line B) nearby giving direct access to both Charles de Gaulle and Orly Airport. From Gare du Nord train station (Eurostar terminal) there is a direct metro line to Etienne Marcel metro station close by the apartment. If coming by car there is a public car park underneath our building accessed from Rue Beaubourg. Velib bicycles are available 30m metres from the entrance.
This is the best place to be in Paris!
No pets or smoking. Above all do not throw cigarette ends over the balcony - they end up either falling on people's heads, or on our neighbour's balconies.
We use the living room during the day to work, so need quiet at these times.
Our main objective is to share our home with mutual enjoyment and respect and to help our guests have a great time!
I had another family in Paris now....! Sarah and Simon were excellent host. Actually, it was my very first Airbnb experience and I think I am very fortuante that I could stay their place like home. I stayed for about 25 days and could get to meet Sarah & Simon couple for about a week and we chatted about lots of things and even invied me to dinner with their wonderful friends. While staying there, I felt like home, Sarah & Simon took a good care of me providing such a quality service such as french style breakfast and all the clean bed sheets and towels. To be honest, it was a lot better than staying at the 5 star hotels.
Sarah was very quick in answering all the questions and problems if I have and Simon was a really good cook. I really enjoyed his cooking with his wonderful friends discussing all the various topics. Simon and Sarah have a various experience in asian counries and they have better understandings about asian cultue and respected me so well.
The apartment was BEAUTIFUL even better than the photos in the Airbnb. You must visit there and live there for awhile, otherwise, you won't be able to find out how beautilful theri apartment is and practically located in the center of Paris so that you can go anywhere in convenience. In the room, everything os well organised and huge! right next to the room, there's bathroom and toilette which are very comfortable. at the upper floor, there's huge living room, very modern with exciting decorations and a spacious kitchen.
At last, but not least.. there's a gorgous terrace where you can enjoy a wonderul view of days and nights in Paris. Don't miss it!
Anyway, once again I really appreciate Sarah and Simon's great hospitality to me and will definately visit their place again if I go to Paris.
Thanks, Sarah & Simon.
Thanks Beau for your appreciation and your compliments, it is so encouraging for us to hear just how much you felt at home. We certainly enjoyed having you. We feel we have made a new friend and look forward to meeting you again in the not too distant future. S&S
My mom and I stayed at Sarah and Simon’s flat and it exceeded our expectations on every level. While we did not have the pleasure of meeting them, their communication with us before our stay (in answering our questions and providing directions) was superb. The flat itself is in a great location (close to shops and restaurants, and very safe). We were able to walk to all the major attractions and metro stations were very close by. The food they provided for us for breakfast was generous. The kitchen was very helpful, as we could prepare tea and coffee each day. The apartment itself is just like the pictures – modern and quaint, and it was very clean and spacious as well, especially for a Parisian apartment. The balcony and sunroom were very nice, I imagine in the spring they would be the perfect place to rest. Artwork is on all the walls, you almost feel like you’re in a museum! You won’t find a better deal than this flat. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to everyone. Thank you so much Simon and Sarah for entrusting your home to us. We had a wonderful time.
The flat was amazing!! Couldn't ask for more. Will definitely visit again soon.
Our second home in Paris
In October I had the luck of having my first Airbnb experience ever at Sarah and Simon's cozy flat in Paris, Marais quarter, together with a friend of mine. From the very first contact Sarah responded immediately to our request and guided us all way through. Having arrived to Paris we were warmly welcomed and felt immediately at home in their artistic home and relaxed ambience. It is a matter of trust when you invite total strangers into your flat and we felt very privileged to be entrusted with this. In the mornings we were surprised with ample breakfasts in stunning surroundings with view to both the Eiffel Tower and Sacre Coeur, it was marvelous. They also gave us good advice of where to eat, what to see and how to spend our day making our stay much more convenient.
Thank you Sarah and Simon for making our holiday a remarkable one. Hope you're enjoying your holiday as much as we did ours. If all Airbnb were like yours nobody should hesitate to stay at an Airbnb.
The apartment is really nice and confrortable, it has a beautiful balcony, from where enjoy the city view in the morning having breakfast (which is great) and wondering where to spend your day. All the main beauties in Paris are nearby and easily accessible by metro or bus, or simply by walk. The very central location might be a problem for those who are looking for a place to find peace and quiet, but in a city like Paris you must be able to choose what to prioritize. The hosts Sara and Simon are lovely and always helpful to provide any information to fully enjoy the city and at the same time very discreet in leaving the necessary privacy despite the shared use of the toilet. Defintely it is a place I would recommend to anyone is looking for an accommodation that combines a central location and a warm and friendly hospitality.
