Je suis parisienne, n'hésitez pas à me poser des questions.
I am parisian, don't hesitate to contact me if you have any question.
We had a great stay in the apartment of Nathalie. It is very comfortable, with everything needed for a traveler. It is clean, cozy and we were very well received by Nathalie and her husband. The stairs (05 floors) were no problem for us, but if a guest has problems walking, will be unable to go up. The apartment is very well located with shops, markets, delicious bolangeries and subway stations nearby. When I return to Paris, I would stay in the same place and in the same apartment.
Staying at Nathalie's apt. in the Marais was amazing! Both Nathalie and her husband were super accommodating, her husband waited over two hours for us to show up due to a delay with our flight. As for the stairs its was no problem especially considering all the carbs we were eating from the local bakeries and markets in their neighborhood. On the subject of the neighborhood, it was perfect, great galleries, shops, and restaurants. It was less touristy which meant less tourist traps, but still in the center of the city and accessible to all of the sites by walk or by metro. If I were going back to Paris right now I would stay there again.
This is a great apartment! It's small, but well set up for one or 2 people - and came with TV w/cable, very reliable wi-fi, a microwave, tea and coffee makers, and private bathroom with shower and a washer/dryer. The location was great - just off a busy street, so it was mostly quiet at night. Very safe location, and it close to a terrific boulangerie, and wine store and cheese shops, (and supermarkets) less than 2 blocks away, along with restaurants, cafes etc.. I stayed in early June and it was very comfortable - a fantastic Marais home base in which to explore Paris. Definitely consider this for your next visit!
The apartment is small but very charming and it was the perfect size for my friend and I. It was clean and had all of the amenities promised. Nathalie's husband met up promptly at the prearranged meeting time and even brought us some fresh pan a chocolat. We had a VERY earlier departure time and Nathalie was very flexible on working out a way to check out that was convienent for all involved. The five flights of steps up to the apartment were challenging with luggage, but after that they were good exercise. We loved the neighborhood. There were numerous cafes nearby and it had great Metro access. I would consider staying here again on my next trip to Paris.
I loved this little place. It’s very cozy and right near a fromanger, a few boulangeries, meat and fish vendors, as well as the Marché des Enfants Rouges, which has great ethnic food options. The risotto at the Italian stall and the fried tofu at the Japanese stall were especially good. The five flights of stairs were not daunting at all for my 62 year old mother and me, but we’re in pretty good physical shape.
Fantastic apartment and location. Nathalie and her family were very accommodating. Thank you!!
A very nice apartment. It is clean and roomy. It has a kitchen, washing machine, TV, internet, iron, two beds. The location was convenient. It is 20-30 minutes walk from the major attractions in Paris (ie. Louvre, Notre Dame). The neighbourhood has a lot of cafes and stores. It is 5 minutes walk from a couple of subway stations. Nathalie was very nice and helpful. The only problems we had was that the building has no elevator and the apartment is on the 5th floor. Also one evening the neighbours were partying most of the night. Overall it was a good experience.
This apartment is indeed, very charming, and was perfect for our stay in Paris! When we arrived, the apartment was very clean and was very spacious. When we arrived in Paris, we were much later than we had expected (after midnight) and we were very grateful to Nathalie's husband for patiently waiting for us to arrive at the apartment....it indicates what great hosts they are! We didn't mind walking the 5 flights of stairs every day, it provided an opportunity for more exercise =) It was very convenient to use their washer to do laundry and their wireless internet worked flawlessly. Also, we loved the location... Le Marais is a wonderful area with lots of good restaurants but without a touristy feel. Their place was also very close to several metro stations! We can't say enough good things about this apartment, we loved it and would stay here again.
The apartment was exactly as described. It was in an excellent location in Paris, yet quiet enough at night. As other reviewers have indicated, being on the fifth floor without an elevator is an extra workout, but it is worth it. I would definitely stay there again.
I visited for the Paris marathon, just needed somewhere to lay my head, nothing fancy. From arrival, everything was easy, eventhough I arrived late due to a delayed flight and had no way to communicate my tardiness to Nathalie in advance...
It is exactly as listed and nothing more, bed, little space to sit, table, small shower (not very strong water pressure) and a great view of Paris city roofs. For you non-europeans, the toilet may be a shock -it's just accross the hall from the apartment and is a squatter (hole in the ground), just check the pictures. I would definitely stay there again, better than a hostel and the location is wonderful - walk to the Marais for a bite. Also, while it doesn't have internet or TV, there is a mcdonald's with free wifi accross the street.
Nathalie and kids were great guests! Charming, sweet and full of enthusiasm for the region and snow activities. Super nice to be hosting another AirBnB host, one day I'd like to swap those roles and visit Paris chez elle!
There was a good communication. Guests left the flat clean and rules were respected.
Will highly recommend for other hosts.
