Laurent's apartment is fabulous and located in the best part of Le Marais. The apartment has tons of light and opens onto a quiet courtyard. It has beautiful wood floors and stylish yet comfortable furniture. He was very warm and welcoming, and provided us with excellent restaurant and café recommendations. I even forgot something after leaving and he helped me to retrieve it. I would highly recommend this apartment, and hope we can stay there again!
Laurent and the apartment were both lovely! The apt is located in a perfect location and a very cool neighborhood with great vibes. Apartment itself was very Parisian and comfortable. Would be happy to stay again! In addition, Laurent was very communicative although he was not in Paris at the time, always checking in to make sure everything was ok. Thank you for a wonderful holiday!
To be short it was best Paris trip so far and Laurent's apartment played good part of it. The location is perfect for those who like to feel real Paris vibe. The apartment itself is like in pictures -charming and stylish. Laurent probably was most helpfull host we met in Airbnb. Highly recomended place.
The loft is, indeed, very nice, albeit a little crammed. Lots of light through the three windows looking out onto a courtyard and facing windows of offices that we never saw a single person behind. The host, Laurent, was on a trip far away but his instructions for getting into the apartment were clear and easy to follow. He was also available through e-mail and phone (both messaging and voice) whenever we had any question. The building is located at the (far-) edge of the Marais, about 10 minutes on foot from the gorgeous Place des Vosges. The street is quite busy but street noise does not penetrate in the apartment. There are cafés and restaurants galore in the neighborhood. There is also a small grocery story a block away, although we had to walk far to find a bakery. Metro stops are a bit far.
This was my first experience with airbnb, and I will definitely use again. Overall, great experience. Laurent gave very detailed instructions on where to pick up the keys. The apartment is in an beautiful and ideal location, and was just as described. Laurent was available via email, text, phone and even offered recommendations on places to go in the neighborhood. In correspondence with Laruent, he was very professional and always willing to answer questions. I would highly recommend renting from Laurent to anyone interested in airbnb in Paris.
The apartement was easy to find, has everything one might need for a short stay and is nicely decorated. Moreover its entrance is located in a beautiful courtyard where sometimes tourists came to take pictures! It had a real parisian flair, exactly what we were looking for! It might be a little small for 3 persons even though it was ok for a short stay. I would recommend the apartment for a couple! The location was perfect: there were supermarkets, bars and restaurants really close-by and you are a 10min walk away from the heart of the marais. It couldnt be better located!! And even though laurent was not in paris during our stay, he was always reachable and available for questions and made our stay very easy!!
Laurent was quick to respond, and always helpful with suggestions and directions - despite not being in Paris at the time of our stay. Finding the apartment was a breeze (thank goodness for Uber in Paris) - it's located just a few minutes' walk from the heart of Le Marais, an area we loved for its quiet charm and awesome selection of shops and cafes.
The apartment itself was a little more snug than we'd expected; but admittedly far better than a tiny hotel room. It was bright and well furnished, and the stairs were fortunately wide enough to accommodate a pregnant lady with massive luggages.
The wireless internet was a little unstable, but again, Laurent was quick to help sort this out.
