Great Location great flat Amalia was was ever so helpful would definitely book again
The apartment is very nice and as it looks in the pictures. It is in a good central location near several metro stations. We enjoyed our stay a lot.
However, there are a few negatives:
1. There is no curtain or blinds to cover the window in the living area. This is the area that is used the most and where you will get changed due to the low ceiling on the bedroom level. It's not nice knowing that everyone can see in to the apartment.
2. All of the wardrobes and drawers have been taped/chained up so there is no hanging space. I guess this is because Amalia uses the apartment when she is in Paris, but she shouldn't rent it out if there isn't enough space for people to put their belongings when staying there.
Other than that the apartment is clean, well decorated and comfy.
Exactly as described, apartment was in excellent condition, felt like a home away from home. Very welcoming, had some store cupboard essentials if you were desperate for a cup of tea or decided to cook in (not that you would being in the wonderful Marais district)
This was our 2nd time staying at this loft. The Marais is one of our favorite areas of Paris and you can't get a much better location than the loft. Checkin and checkout were easy and having a full kitchen to use is always nice as well.
Amalia was great to correspond with, answering questions and ensuring we had our instructions on how to enter the building. The apartment was in a fantastic location. High end neighbourhood with great shops, restaurants and a supermarket. The building and condo were very secure!
The apartment was cool and quaint. Living room was spacious and tv technology was great! The loft bedroom was tiny and you could not stand up, but that didn't bother us. The kitchen was small, a little dark (brighter lighting would help), however it was perfect for making a quick breakfast before starting our day or cheese and crackers for an evening snack!
The only feedback we have was that there was really no storage or place to hang our clothes, no drawers or closet. Our suitcases remained on the floor in the living space and no other option.
We would recommend this apartment for those wanting to experience Paris and be in the heart of it all!
Appartement très bien situé, à proximité de tout, dans un quartier très vivant. Calme, pas de nuisance sonore.
Joliment décoré, il mérite cependant d'être un peu rafraichi.
Echange uniquement par mail avec Amalia, qui était aux états unis. Les indications étaient claires.
Amalia was very accommodating and we had a great stay at her apartment. The loft was clean and well kept. It was a cozy, quiet, and comfortable haven at the end of each day.
The location is incredible. Le Marais is a great neighborhood with plenty of restaurants and shops. Plus the loft is within walking distance from the metro.
We had a wonderful trip and this was the perfect place to stay.
I have traveled around the world a large part of my life, to England, New York, and finally Montreal for university where I studied cello performance at McGill.
I have now been living in Paris for the past 6 years, where I completed my fashion design studies. I then worked for Yves Saint Laurent in jewelry design and then for Sharon Wauchob. I am currently in New York.
If you have any questions in regards to the apartment, don't hesitate to contact me. I am happy to advise you on Paris activities when I have the time available.
