The apartment is located in a perfect area for tourists. All the major attractions can be reached by metro and some even by foot. There was a lot going on in the neighborhood and the street offered a lot of restaurants (Japanese, Cafés, Bistrots...).
The apartment itself is very small and located on the second floor of the building. Everything we needed was there. Philippe was reliable and we had a great stay in his apartment.
L'appartement de Philippe est calme, accueillant, charmant et en très bon état!
Vous y trouverez tout ce dont vous avez besoin pour passer un agréable séjour...comme si vous étiez chez vous.
Très bonne communication avec Philippe + disponibilité
We had a nice week on vacation in Paris, staying at Philippe's studio. We had everything we needed, and the location is unbeatable. Unfortunately Philippe was not there at the time but his friend Olivier welcomed us and everything was fine for our stay. We usually came back in the evening after walking around the city for a light meal in the well equipped kitchen and to drink a glass of wine by the window with a nice view of the neighborhood before going out - again, Paris was really easy to navigate at night from the building. The cushion was a little thin, but that was an issue just in the first night. There is a good flat screen TV with all the channels, very fast internet and even an iPod dock. I surely would recommend this place for my friends visiting Paris.
Very nice host and perfectly located studio for 2 in Paris!
If you plan to visit tourist sites you will save lot's of time by just walking and not using metro! But if you need it, it's around a corner.
This is definitely a great option to stay in Paris for a young couple or single person. It is conveniently located in le Marais which is a great location in Paris near metro, shops and great restaurants and bars. If you enjoy walking, the area is fantastic but it is also near great walks down the Seine with views of Notre Dame, the Eiffel tower and Hotel de Ville. It can be a tad noisy at night or early in the morning because of it's nearness to bars, but it's a minor discomfort for the convenience of the place. The lack of air conditioning is not a problem, opening the windows proved to be completely effective solution because a nice air current makes the Parisian heat in August barely noticeable. The shower is great, plenty of clean towels and linens were available. The sofa bed is good enough. The neighbors are friendly. Overal, I would recomend this option without a doubt.
Philippe was a great host for our stay in Paris. He met us outside the building right on time and showed us all about the apartment. The apartment is in a great location in Le Marais. I would definitely stay in that area again when visiting Paris. The apartment had a washing machine, an espresso machine, and a warm shower. The mattress on the sofa bed was very thin, but other than that everything was perfect. Thanks Philippe!
Overall, my boyfriend and I had a pleasant stay at Philippe's Marais Studio. We stayed for 9 days in May of 2013.
The apartment is extremely well situated, only a few minutes walk to the Hôtel de Ville metro stop, located on line 1 which is one of the best lines to be on. It's also a 10 minute walk from Châtelet-Les Halles, where you can take the RER to/from the airport and also transfer to many great metro lines, including Line 4, another top line for attractions.
The Marais neighborhood is adorable, full of great restaurants and shops. It was great to be a short walk from that neighborhood! If I were to live in Paris, I would absolutely live in this area. It's also great because you can walk to Notre Dame/St Michel and Saint Germain de Près, all important tourist attractions.
The apartment had all the amenities we needed, sheets, towels, plates, a working shower and kitchen. The couch bed was reasonably comfortable, although one side had this bar that was kind of irritating at times. There was enough space for 2 to stay comfortably there. There is a futon chair for a 3rd person but it would be pretty cramped.
The apartment is on a quiet side street, so there isn't that much noise. However, I should add that there is a small bar across the street that has a fair amount of clientele that hang out outside during nice weather from Thursday-Saturday nights. They quieted down by 2am, but I would bring earplugs or put a pillow over your head to block out the minor noise they make.
Right now there is also some construction going on, they're building a new restaurant or store on the ground floor of the building next door, so there is a good amount of construction noise starting early in the morning. This of course likely won't be an issue for very much longer, and if you're a morning person then the noise shouldn't matter.
Philippe is very charming, and a good host, he met us at the apartment the first day to provide us with the keys, and was available via phone if we had any questions. He was very busy during this time, otherwise he would have bid us farewell as well. There was some confusion about the meeting time to get the keys, but it was cleared up.
I would stay at this apartment again, but I would wait until the construction was over. The location is amazing and the price is very reasonable.
Me parecio terrible el edificio...muy descuidado, sucio!...pero uno dice si adentro está bien , lo dejo pasar....
Pero no ,no fue asi.Las fotos deben haber sido tomadas cuando inauguro el departamento pero ahora todo esta mal. Adentro tambien parecía sucio. El baño atroz!! Oscuro, todo negro, y sin ventilacion daba muy fea impresion,La cortina de baño siempre parecia sucia lo mismo quqe la bacha , porque se manchaban con el salitre del agua
He de decir que si tenia buena agua caliente y se disponia de calefaccion, cosa que fue oportuna debido al mal tiempo.
otra cosa que me causo mala impresion fue que las almohadas y el acolchado se guardaban en el piso del placard ( que además no tenia estantes)
.Los tapizados de los sillones estaban sucios ,manchados
El sofa cama costaba mucho abrir y cerrar.
El colchón nos hizo (website hidden) cama se vencia hacia el centro.
A mi entender, un anfitrion debe esmerarse mas. Al llegar, no habia ni un jabon ni rollo de papel higienico!...elemental! Ni que hablar de una atencion como té o café! Diametralmente diferente de nuestra experiencia en londres!
Conclusion:no volvería ni lo recomendaria!
Excellent apartment located in a great area.
Photos are true. The apartment is comfortable, has everything you need.
Philippe is very responsive, we booked an apartment late at night, with arrival the next day. Philippe promptly confirmed everything, met us and escorted to the apartment.
Safe area, no problem you can walk around at night. Nearby there are several grocery stores, many restaurants and shops.
My girlfriend and I stayed at Phillip for four days in april. All in all we had an excellent stay, the appartement had everything we could wish for. Furthermore it's perfectly located in Marais with easy access to everything from sight to supermarkets. Phillip is a fine host, easy to communicate with, helpfull and to rely on.
The only negative thing was that one of the windows wouldn't close properly.
We would definately recommend a stay at Phillips appartement.
Philippe was an excellent guest,very polite and we like to welcome you back any time
I met Philippe a couple of years ago and we have been friends since then.
He is polite, professional and reliable - a good friend.
Philippe is very passionate about making his apartment stylish and comfortable.
The location is perfect - Le Marais, Paris' most trendy district, with great cafes, pubs and shops.
Le Marais draws a creative crowd of artists and designers from around the world.
A fabulous place to stay and to start exploring Paris.
I've been to his apartment sometimes and even stayed there and I have to say it is exactly as the pictures show.
Philippe is extremely attentive and really cares about making every guest have the best possible experience and is so enthusiastic about being a host.
I have recommended his apartment unreservedly to many friends and family.
