Positive: The apartment is located in a great area (Marais) very close to most historical Paris sights and near 2 Metro stations. The area is filled with boutiques, cafes, bars. It's safe even after dark. The 2nd floor and working elevator are big plus. Negative: The bathroom is so small that one needs to get out into the kitchen to dry oneself with the towel. And we both are only size M! I can't see a person of XL using it! When we checked in the apartment was clean but the laundry bin was half filled with previous guests' laundry. Overall the location and size compared with other available apartments still make it a good choice.
My friend and I had an amazing time in May in Paris, and much of it is thanks to MARCO and his apartment! It was more than enough space to stay, clean and ideally located right in the heart of the Paris, 1 minute walk form the metro station, many shops, restaurants and bars near. It is a great jumping off point for anyone who is new to Paris and wants to explore the town in all directions. MARCO was a great host, very helpful, available and friendly from the very first contact! All in all, it was a wonderful experience! I am really looking forward for coming back! When I do, I would not hesitate to stay at Marco`s apartment again!
The location is perfect! Three minute walk from Pompidou & metro, ten minutes to Notre-Dame. It's a bustling neighborhood, but quiet in the apartment, as it faces an internal courtyard. It felt private and safe. Across the street "terres de cafe" serves beautiful coffee and a 'monop up on Rue Des Haudriettes was perfect for grocery shopping. The kitchen has a mini-fridge, a two burner glass top range that heats up real well, and enough dishes & pots. No electric kettle. The bed was comfortable, and not just for one night-we were there for two weeks and no sore backs. The key sticks a bit in the lock but once you get the hang of it it's fine. The place could be cleaner, but overall a great value!
Marco's recommendations for restaurants were outstanding, as was the location for his flat! My boyfriend and I will never forget our trip.
Marcos place was great in every way. We booked last minute with a short turn around for him and he came through nicely. The location is great with tons of dining options. Easy walk to the metro and safe neighborhood. The place had enough space to spread out in and everything was in good shape. You do have to be very quiet when walking and talking because everything creaks and has thin walls but outside noise was never a problem. Marco is a great manager and will help you out with anything. Definitely recommended.
We really loved our stay at Marco's place - it is centrally located in a charming ans authentic part of Paris, close to many sites as well as amenities such as bulangeries, food markets etc. Margo was great on communicating with us prior to arrival, and our stay was great. One notice - DO NOT try to put your bags in the tiny elevator and send them upstairs without accompaniment (it is a tiny elevator). It might get stuck, and you will need to pay 80 Euros to the repairman!
