Global Sales Director. Often traveling. Single. Living in the best part of Paris: Le Marais right in the center.
This is our second stay with Omar, so that should be a good recommendation just by itself. His flat gives you an authentic Parisian experience and is right in the middle of an excellent section of Paris to explore. Access to other transport is easy, too, because a bus stop and Metro station is nearby, along with a taxi rank. During our visit, the Batobus (river boat) schedule was disrupted, which upset our plans to see other parts of town. However, because Omar's place is in such a great location, we simply explored this wonderful city on foot. Visitors to Paris may wish to see as many sights as possible, but if you book this place and stay only within walking distance, your Paris experience will be complete. There is plenty to see nearby, and it is a safe area for a family, too. In addition, Omar is an enthusiastic host who stays in excellent contact with his guests.
Le Marais is a fantastic location and highly recommended as a base to explore Paris from (check parking options if you have a car). The area has gorgeous small shops, restaurants and pretty lane ways and sights, and close proximity to bigger shopping areas, metro, the historic Ile St-Louis and Notre Dame. Most things are walkable including a decent walk to the Eiffel Tower (which we did in mid-winter no problem). The apartment (we were told) is a typical Parisian apartment and has a balcony overlooking the street (but no problem with street noise), wooden floors and a contemporary interior. Living area and bedrooms were a generous size and bathroom, kitchen and toilet very small but functional. Omar was very easy to communicate with before arrival and during our stay and welcoming on arrival with information/advice on the apartment and on Paris. We recommend this apartment for your stay in Paris. It easily beats staying in a budget hotel. Don't worry if you don't speak French, we had none and managed fine (although to fit in it would have been nice to have some French). Thanks Omar.
This really is a charming apartment in the Marais. We were a family of four and the apartment was perfect for us. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen small but functional - but being so close to lots of restaurants, eating out is easy. The key pick up and drop off worked really well and although we didn't get to meet Omar, we were well looked after. If you would like a stay in the Marais that is close to most attractions, I would recommend this apartment.

Perfect! The location is not only beautiful but great as far as being within walking distance of metro, food, shopping, and chocolate and pastries! Truly a wonderful stay! The apartment was clean and just as pictured. There are a few areas of Paris that look no different than other big cities, but the neighborhood for this apartment is the charming Paris. The old, quaint, incredible Paris that you see in the movies. Breakfast every morning on the balcony was beyond words. Just amazing. Omar is so kind. He really went out of his way to make our stay in Paris a trip of a lifetime. We would definitely recommend to friends (in fact, we already have) and will stay again when we come back to Paris. Thank you so much Omar!
The apartment was very comfortable situated in Paris and in a GREAT neighborhood. The beds were great! The kitchen was well supplied and the living room was comfy too.
My only two complaints were the towels were awful! Stained and old! And in the kids room we found laundry hanging in on the landry rack....at 250 euros a night, it was a bit disappointing to find personal laundry hanging up.
I would stay again but request newer towels and good clean job in the apt so it feels ready for guests.
What a wonderful apartment in a great area of Paris. We choose this for it's location and we were quite happy. Nice size apartment and fully equipped with all we needed. There were three of us and felt comfortable. Cooked in a couple of nights and ample utilities to prepare fine foods. Loved the view, elevator and Omar's communication with us before and during our stay. Highly recommended!
Great location and the apartment was as advertised. Omar was always quick to respond to our questions and offer suggestions for local sights.
Our family truly enjoyed our 2 nights at Omar's apartment! The view is beautiful and the location is amazing. Thank you so much!!
Omars place is in a great location, very simple and basic Paris living at its best! Good instructions and communication from the host is very important on these type of rentals and Omar is very conscious of this and excells at it.
ce fut un plaisir de recevoir Omar dans notre studio. Il a été notre 1er client et somme ravis d'avoir fait sa connaissance. Omar est très agréable et très respectueux des lieux. Un vrai plaisir de l'accueillir. A bientôt j'espère.
Omar was our first guest, and we are so happy! He was nice, understanding, greatful, clean, quite...and always with a smile!! Thanks Omar and hope to see you soon again!!!
