Stayed here for 6 nights. The studio was perfect for a solo traveler. I felt very safe here, and enjoyed being in a vibrant neighborhood (shops, cafes, restaurants) within easy walking distance to the "tourist center," as well as to convenient Metro and bus stops. The studio is well-equipped, clean and reasonably quiet. Not luxury, but a good value and comfortable. Both Yvon and Christophe were very responsive to my inquiries, and it was a pleasure working with them. I would second one of the other reviews, however, about providing a buzzer/apt. number. I also had difficulty reaching Christophe by phone when I arrived because of trouble dialing the number from my mobile. It eventually worked, but I was a bit panicked standing in front of the building knowing he was there, but I couldn't reach him. Overall, a very good experience. I would definitely stay again!

The owner and manager are very courteous and extremely responsive to questions and truly want your trip to go well. I had two days in paris and if u don't want to be a tourist and see the real paris do yourself a favor book an apartment. This would be a great choice. It's conveniently located close to major metros cafés nearby grocery store below. The studio is clean and big enough for two.

Petit studio idéalement situé, calme et commerces à proximité. Confortable et Cocoon après de longues journées de marche dans Paris. Rien de mieux pour se ressourcer! L'accueil est chaleureux. J'ai déjà donné l'adresse à des amis !

For the price it was an excellent location, quiet, very clean, good value. We found the futon bed very uncomfortable. Our service point is low because we weren't given a buzzer number or apartment number for the apartment so we had no way of contacting Christophe even though he was in the apartment waiting for us. Fortunately, a gentleman came out of the building and we asked if he knew Christophe, he did and called him and let us in.We were given Christophe's cell phone number but were having trouble dialling the international number from our cell phone. Otherwise, the service and amenities were great, they even gave us a complimentary small bottle of wine and the apartment had every detail taken care of.

Deliziosa accoglienza da parte di Christophe! Alloggio confortevole (anche per 3 persone) in pieno centro, dotato di ottimi servizi. Inoltre Rue Bretagne offre numerosi locali per pranzi, cene e colazioni e negozi di ogni tipo, oltre allo storico mercato. La nostra vacanza a Parigi è stata molto positiva anche per questo bellissimo studio che ci ha fatto sentire come a casa. Sicuramente torneremo a trovare Christophe, sperando di riuscire ad incontrare la prossima volta anche il proprietario Yvon!!!

Appartement très bien placé et fonctionnel, proche de la gare de Lyon, station de métro et bus à 5mn. Entre la Bastille et la République, le quartier du Marais est très vivant. Très bon accueil de la part des propriétaires. Le Book Map que l'on m'a prêté ne m'a quitté durant tout le séjour. J'y retournerai lors de mon prochain séjour à Paris.

We stayed here for a few days and it was great! We loved the many great restaurants that we could walk to and everyone was very friendly, with the exception of one of the workers in the bakery right below who was very rude even though I spoke French. The place was clean although a bit smaller than we were expecting but it was great for just a few days and we didn't really spend a lot of time in it anyways. Christophe was very helpful and welcoming. I'd highly recommend staying here instead of a hotel for a true French experience!

The apartment is located in a great area. Restaurants and bakeries were close. Yvon & Christophe were great hosts and the comunication was easy. Would book this again, much better than any hotel.

This apartment is exactly as advertised and pictured. Very good location just a couple of blocks from three different Metros. Grocer and bakery at street level. The apt. is one flight up. We stayed three weeks and it was perfect for us. Hosts are very helpful and have good information when you ask. They make me rate dining - we cooked a bit but actually thought the restaurants choices were so superb we couldn't resist. Roxanne

Cet appartement et le quartier nous ont sauvé le séjour sous une météo maussade. On s'est senti tout de suite bien dans ce studio très bien aménagé et équipé pour notre séjour d'une semaine. Tout était à proximité, très bonne boulangerie au pied de l'immeuble que je vous recommande, le marché des enfants rouge à 50m et son atmosphère très bobo mais très sympa. La rue est plein de restaurants, de petites boutiques. C'est vraiment le marais comme je l'imaginais. Accueil parfait de Christophe, propreté et confort, tout y est. Ca a été le point de départ idéal de nos excursions dans Paris. On a déjà partagé l'adresse, mes parents ont réservé.

I was in Paris for the 5th time with my wife from jan 5-9 2013 and we decided NOT to go to a hotel which can be honerous in Paris for something quite average. We tried our luck on this lovely little apartment and we were happily surprised. This was in the Marais where we never stayed before and we had a wonderful time. We now know where to stay when we come back: great setting, clean, affordable, amenities, friendly contact and nice neighborhood. Beats a boring hotel room!!!

My wife and I stayed at Yvon's studio in the Marais the first week of January 2013 for 6 days. The room is extremely well appointed with a double size bed, chair, two bar stools, flat screen television, and a well equipped kitchen area. The kitchen has a full size stove top, an oven, fridge, dishwasher, coffee maker, toaster, tea kettle, dishes and cutlery. The bathroom is modern with a tiled shower, heated towel bar. The bathroom is quite functional. This apartment is in an excellent neighbourhood in the Marais. Shops, drugstore, bank, restaurants, bakeries, are literally within steps. The closest metro stop is about an 5 minutes walk. The room is on the interior of the building with windows facing into an inner courtyard that looks down onto a floor with block glass. There is virtually no street noise from this apartment. This is a very safe area and has a comfortable feel to the neighbourhood. We initially walked everywhere to the usual sights from the studio. The metro system in Paris is excellent and once you figure it out, there is not an area that is not reachable within minutes. Christophe and Yvon, were outstanding. They were waiting for us upon arrival. Christophe was on time (to the minute) when we checked out early on our last day. He was very helpful with basic Paris information. The studio has a small binder with maps, and other pertinent information. The studio has a street door with coded security followed by another coded security door after a short hallway.

We had a wonderful time in Paris! We absolutely loved staying in Marais. The apartment was in a wonderful neighborhood with great cafes, bakeries, cheese and wine stores and restaruants. The hosts were great and left a book filled with brochures and recommended things to see, places to eat etc. The studio was very clean and comfortable. It had a great kitchen area, nice bar area to eat breakfast, a comfortable bed and there was a great shower in the bathroom. The apartment is also in walking distance to several metro stops on different lines which worked out nicely for us to venture to other areas of Paris to see the various sights. We had a wonderful stay and highly recommend this studio if you are traveling to Paris!!!
