We had a wonderful and relaxing stay in Paris. The flat was at a prime location: steps from the metro, a quick walk to the market and the center of a charming district full of great food, monuments, museums and shopping. Gaurav was good at communicating with us before our arrival and connecting us to Maud. We never met Maud and there was little follow up, but the flat has tips around the house that made it easy to get by. It got pretty musty and mildewy in the flat and we kept the windows open most of the time. Like another visitor, it would have been nice to have a couple of extra pillows and towels for the week. Overall, good stay and thanks for the great opportunity to stay at your flat.
Strategic location, near the metro. The apartment is near the seine river, 10 minutes walk to notre dame and it's also near st paul village where there are alot of cafes and restaurants.
Maud was there to welcome us and ensure that everything was ok. Check in and check out was smooth.
The flat was an excellent place to stay in many respects. The location is ideal as it is very close to a metro station and well located for people like us who like to walk everywhere. There are several excellent restaurants and cafes in the neighborhood and le Marais is a lively part of Paris. The flat was comfortable for the two of us and provided everything that we needed. The area is quiet at night. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to visit Paris.
We stayed 3 nights in this cozy apartment. It looks as portrayed and has an excellent location. The Murphy bed is clean and comfortable (although a bit squeaky and with thin pillows to our taste), the rain shower is great, and the towels soft and fluffy. I really liked the kitchenware, and we enjoyed the coffee from the French press in the morning. A perfect base for exploration of the city!
We had such a great time staying in Gaurav's apartment in Paris, it was just perfect!
The location was amazing, we spent our last 4 days of our honeymoon in Paris, the apartment is located right in the Marais on the riverside, walking distance from everything, amazing restaurants, cute bars and awesome fashion shops!
The apartment had everything we could ask for and very comfortable which was great. Maud was very charming and helpful.
Make sure you have dinner at the next door restaurant called Le Petit Celestin on your last night, the food was amazing and it was fun. Popular place with the locals.
Thank you Gaurav and Maud!
Our stay at Gaurav's was as magical as we'd hoped - wonderful spot - quiet but close to everything. The apartment was clean, spacious and beautifully decorated. There were absolutely no complications leading up to the stay - Gaurav and Maud communicated with us regularly and were very flexible with timings. I will be recommending the place to anyone I know going to Paris!
Guarav's apartment was the perfect location for our first four nights in Paris. The neighborhood was most certainly magical- we fell in love with the Marais! It was the best of both worlds, staying on the right bank but having the left bank just across the river. Very close to Nortre Dame, both islands in the middle of the Seine, Latin Quarter, etc.
The actual building was very safe/secure- you enter a charming courtyard by using a passcode and then up a small stairway to the 3rd floor. Hardwood floors and wood panel detail on the celing were beautiful- great light and air through the windows. The Bed is a murphy bed, but it was already down when we arrived. The place was clean and well-kept. Guarav had a friend meet us upon arrival to provide keys and send us off- they were timely and it worked out great! A few things to note- the toilet is inside the shower (This was not an issue at all for us, but worth a mention). If you are staying here in the warmer months you may want to consider bringing a fan. We had a couple warm nights in mid September and while opening the windows helped, it also, naturally, let some bugs in.
Overall we had a great stay and Guarav's place was a great oasis to come back to!
We did not arrive until 9pm so we were so pleased to find Maud waiting for us when we got to the apartment. The apartment is exactly as you see, it is quirky and very function-able once you get use to the toilet in the shower. The Marais area is fabulous right across from the Latin Quarter and in walking distance from all the tourists spots. Supermarket around the corner and the underground outside our door. My only change would be - We stayed 7 days I would like to have had a second set of linen/towels/tea towel. I am 66 and my sister is 75 and we are very fit so we negotiated the stairs very well. It was our first attempt with this type of accommodation and we were delighted with the apartment and the position.
Had the pleasure of staying at Gaurav's flat in the Marais district of Paris, and loved every second of it! Gaurav was incredibly responsive to all of our inquiries and really does go out of his way to make your stay go as smoothly as possible. He includes little notes throughout the apartment with helpful tips which I thought was awesome.
The apartment had everything we needed on the trip - was well appointed and supplied including lots of tour books and a few games. More than ample is size for 2 x people. Loved opening the windows to enjoy a breeze and to look down on the super cute courtyard area. Great location on the river and walkable to various sites, great dining options, lots of boutique shopping, farmer's markets, and the metro line.
Thanks so much Gaurav!
Gaurav made sure that everything was ready for me when I arrived in Paris. The keys were ready for me as soon as I arrived. Although Gaurav could not be there personally to meet me, his delegate ensured that this was a smooth and seamless process.
The apartment has everything that you need, the bed is comfortable and there is a great shower with a never ending supply of hot water. It's quiet at night and you can leave the two windows open all night for the beautiful summer breeze. I really enjoyed my stay and look forward to coming back to Paris again and hopefully being able to stay in Gaurav's apartment again.
It really is as great as everyone says below. You too will gush about it if you choose to stay! Bright, cosy, quiet, it's both spacious enough for a family and a good place to retreat to alone. The hosts are lovely too, friendly, thoughtful, they know Paris well and will genuinely want you to enjoy your stay: an airbnb ideal.
I live in Paris but stayed here for 3 months while my apartment was occupied & I really enjoyed the area which is right in the heart of Paris. The apartment was great for me & my boyfriend, with a fantastic, compact & well-equipped kitchen, a big comfy bed & a nice spacious bathroom plus there are some delicious boulangeries only a few minutes walk away along the rue St Paul. The apartment is bright & very cosy, even in the dead of winter, I think we only needed the heating twice in 3 months! Metro connections are great, there's a station right infront of the building or a 5 minute walk away at Bastille where there are more lines, and there's a Velib station 2 minutes away which is handy & perfect for enjoying Paris on a sunny day! Plus there are some fantastic restaurants & bars nearby in the Marais & I'm sure Gaurav would be willing to give you some good recommendations. Basically this is a wonderful place to spend your holiday in Paris, fantastic accomodation & beautiful surroundings, perfect!
This studio is perfect to stay in Paris, let yourself be inspired, paint, read, or just go for a walk to get to museums, shopping, or/and discover Paris!.... C'est ideale pour rester a Paris quelques jours et se sentir 'chez soi..... i have been there, should I say, many times!.... And every time is just great! Great location!!! ....Thank you, Gaurav & Milo!!!!
Lo recomiendo, sin duda alguna, al 100%!!!!
This apartment is AMAZING! My husband and I stayed here for about a week on our honeymoon and couldn't have been happier (because we were just married, but also because we were in the best apartment in Paris). Not only was the place in a PERFECT location, but it was cute, comfortable, and clean! We walked EVERYWHERE but it’s only a few steps from the metro if needed, and all sorts of deliciousness (restaurants, boulangeries, pâtisseries) surround it. The apartment is at the end of a glorious inner courtyard, so it’s amazingly quiet, but still in the middle of everything. The Seine is literally only steps away, as is some of the best sorbet in town. This place is a GEM and I highly recommend it. I’m eagerly awaiting my next visit.
Wow wow wow I LOVE this perfect little flat! Stayed here for a weekend of rugby-watching and Paris-exploring. Great location to get to and from the Gard du Nord, and to get to anywhere in Paris. Comfy bed, well kitted-out kitchen, lovely warm shower and flat in the winter... Thank you Gaurav and Milo for the opportunity to stay here. We'll definitely be back!
I've stayed in this lovely haven right in the centre of Paris twice - once with my amazing friend on her hen party and once on a romantic get away and I'd go back again and again. Love it! The location and what the flat offers in terms of the decor, spacing and facilitites just seem to good to be true - but it really is true! Being able to self cater (with a store to buy anything you need a five minute walk away), or easily walk to one of the many amazing eateries on your doorstep is one of the things I love most... alongside the fact that wether you want to explore Paris by foot meandering or by getting a bus, bike or metro - all options are literally on your doorstep! Getting too and from the train station to get the Euro Rail also couldn't be any easier if you tried!
I've now stayed in this flat several times and can't rate it highly enough. It's stunning, outside and in, comfortable with all the amenities you might need and with a really romantic feel for a couple. It feels private and yet it's seconds to the metro, the Marais, the Seine and Notre Dame. There are two velib stations right outside the flat so exploring Paris is super convenient. I can't wait to go back!
Amazing studio on the Seine, just a few minutes walk from Ile Saint Louis. Could not be better located for a Parisian adventure. Not enough languages in the world to praise it.
A very romantic studio in a magical part of town. I am French yet struggle to find anywhere nicer to stay in Paris. The flat is magical and the area superb. The little epicerie at the bottom is open late and adds to the charm of the neighbourhood. Stayed over a few week-ends and had fantastic time. All you will need is a Velib and the town is yours. My only grief is that I will now have to compete with all of you to use the flat again ... Highly recommend!
