I live in Paris for a few years now. I had the chance to travel all around the world a few months ago and now live in the very centre of Paris. I speak French and English.

J'ai passé un excellent séjour dans le Marais. A l'arrivée, Gontran m'a accueillie et m'a laissé café et thé pour débuter la journée.
Le studio est très bien situé et très sécuritaire. De plus, il est propre et très éclairé avec un superbe vue du balcon avant et arrière.
Je le recommande pour une personne ou couple qui cherche à avoir un pied à terre dans le marais.

Amazing stay at Gontrans who is the perfect host, The flat is really well situated and really convenient, close to everything, it has an amazing view on the rooftops of Paris. Will definitely stay again if we have the opportunity.
Small but nice studio, perfectly located in le marais. Great view on Paris.
Great apartment in a great location. It was easy and very convenient
Great stay in Gontran's apartment. Gontran was very easy to deal with, and responded very quickly to all emails. The apartment is smallish, but has lovely views in two directions over the tops of surrounding buildings.
We are just back from amazing few days in Paris. Gontran's studio is great. We loved the location in Marais. Gontran provided bedlinen and towels and left us coffee for our arrival.
There are a number of things that always concern me when I stay anywhere so let me allay some fears which may be mutual with other potential guests:
The sofa bed is firm and comfortable and I slept very well.
The apartment is incredibly quiet and you don't get any traffic noise - you would not know you are in the centre of Paris
The water pressure means you can have a good proper shower.
The apartment is clean and comfortable.
It was great to have the kitchen, which is well equipped. We chose to visit the supermarket and buy some food for breakfast and Entree each day which was really pleasant.
The outside areas are fairly small but are a sun trap and the hammock is a joy for relaxing between the sight seeing madness. Dont miss the view of teh Eiffel tower from the kitchen balcony - particularly at night when the light show is on. Go on balcony and look to the left back behind the building. Its very pretty and romantic.
As far as we could tell the closest Metro line was Rambateau (line 11) but I think you can also easily access line 1 by walking in the other direction. We could not find our way out of a paper bag so we always go for the option we know best.
Gontran recommended a fantastic restaurant which is just around the corner "Des Gars dans la Cuisine" in Rue Veielle du Temple. The food was fantastic and the cocktails good. Its not cheap but it is a special experience and the guys running it are friendly and flirtatious. Its very easy to find, leave the apartment turn right, rigth again and its literally 25 metres down on the right hand side.
Another restaurant not to miss is "Robert & Louise" in the same street, out of apartment turn right, turn left and 25 metres on left. We spotted amazing steaks through the window and decided to book a table. Just as well as we could not get one for 2 days! Fantastic but simple steaks very well cooked. Ask for a table upstairs if you get claustophobic as downstairs there are no windows - its great though with lots of atmosphere.
I would have no hesitation in returning and staying in Gontran's apartment again.
Thanks Gontran for opening up your fab home to us. We hope to be back!
Everything is good. The flat is a bit small, but there is really good place on metro line 1. :) All is fine with Gontran too, so we have a 3 nice night in the flat. Thank you!
My wife and I stayed at Gontrans place in September 2012.
Gontran was very friendly and we loved out stay. The apartment isnt big but it's very functional and the two balconies mean there is lots of light.
Le Marais is a great area and theres lots to do, although Gontran's place is on a nice quiet street.
We would stay here again!
Idéalement situé en plein cœur du quartier historique du Marais, "perché" au 7éme étage, la vue sur Paris est vraiment appréciable.
Transversal, le studio bénéficie d'une grande luminosité et dispose de l'ensemble des équipements pour un séjour très agréable.
Merci à Gontran pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse lors de la remise des clés.
Je reviendrai sans hésiter. A bientôt.
No tuve mucha oportunidad de conocer a Gontran puesto que alquilaron él y sus amigos el apartamento completo y solo les vi a la entrada y a la salida...
Pero son realmente muy simpaticos y el apartamento a su salida estaba todo perfecto, limpio y respetaron todas la normas de la casa..
Sin duda volveria a alojarlos.
Gontran was a fantastic guest. I recommend him to any host out there. He left the apartment clean and organized. Thank you Gontran
