This comfortable 50m2 duplex apartment is ideally located in the Marais. Completely refurbished in 2013, the property can accommodate up to 5 people.
The apartment is situated on the first floor of a building (without a lift) that is typical of the area and features a wonderful tree-lined interior courtyard. On the first floor you will find a lovely living room with a double sofa-bed, a
fully-equipped open plan kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining area and a bathroom. You will have a flat-screen television with satellite channels.This apartment does not feature a private internet connection. Nonetheless, it is possible to access a shared connection for which the owner will give you the codes on arrival (the connection cannot be guaranteed). In the loft area (with a 1.70m high ceiling) you will find a bedroom equipped with a double bed and a single bed.
The nearest metro station Arts et Metiers is just a five-minute walk from the accommodation and served by lines 3 and 11, leads directly to Châtelet, Opéra Garnier and the "Grands Magasins". Less than 10 minutes’ walk is the Hotel de ville, on line 1 that heads to the most beautiful avenue in the world, the Champs Elysées. The situation in the heart of the capital offers night-life lovers guaranteed enjoyment. There is a huge selection of shops, trendy bars and restaurants that will satisfy even the most demanding gourmets with the best offer of authentic French cuisine with real Parisian atmosphere.
The location was nice and quiet, which means a lot in Paris. The apartment, however, is very dark and small. The square footage listed in the description is deceptive, as a lot of the area is not full height, and can't be used unless you bend over, or get on your hands and knees. The stairs to the ...bedroom are in fact a ladder, not stairs, and you have to bend down at the top or you will bonk your head, the height being not more than 4 feet. The kitchen is not very well equipped: no colander, knives are dull, pans are very cheap. Not a place for cooking, just making coffee.
I would not stay here again.
The apartment should have detailed instructions for operating the appliances. In Canada we do not have clothes washers that operate like this, so we have no idea what the numbers mean. The person who checked us into the apartment spent less than 5 minutes with us. so weren't able to ask questions. I would suggest you leave instructions if you don't wish to spend the time for a detailed review of how to operate thing.
Apartment well located and functional, even if a fair bit for a family of 5 people (cannot really prepare to eat, even pasta - are there no strainer!). Very quiet.Very disappointing contact: person contact person. We do know that contact and... the home on arrival is barely polite. Similarly, at the... first contact telephone, where we asked one before 4 p.m., the owner (?) ended us hang up the nose...However, we spent a very nice (!) stay. Paris is a beautiful city and the patio of the romantic apartment.
Appartement bien situé et fonctionnel, même si un peu juste pour une famille de 5 personnes (on ne peut pas vraiment s'y préparer à manger, même des pâtes - il n'y a pas de passoire !). Très calme.
Contact très décevant : pas de personne référente. On ne sait à qui s'adresser et ...l'accueil à l'arrivée est à peine poli. De même, lors du premier contact téléphonique, où nous demandions à arriver un avant 16 heures, le propriétaire (?) a fini par nous raccrocher au nez...
Cela étant, on y a passé un séjour très agréable (!!). Paris est une si belle ville et le patio de l'appartement très romantique.
