Charming 1-BR Apartment in the Marais

Held within 400-year-old exposed stone walls and under original wooden beams, this corner apartment offers views that stretch the length of rue de Gravelliers.

The living room has three floor-to-ceiling windows, stone walls, and hardwood floors complimented by a comfortable couch, area rug, and oversized chair. The living space also contains a small office area set off by wooden beams, and a French-style café table for four. The evening light will warm the stone walls and make this room pleasant and inviting.

The open floor plan of the main salon also includes the kitchen. Fully equipped, the kitchen offers slate countertops, new appliances, and window views.

The bedroom has a queen-size bed that can alternately be made up as two singles for flexibility in sleeping arrangements. The bedroom also contains slate floors, a large built-in closet, down bedding, and a window. The living room couch can convert to a sofa bed that sleeps two.

The full bathroom has an antique Venetian mirror over the washbasin, white tiles, shower, bathtub, wc and natural light from the double window.

Clean, comfortable, and well-appointed apartment

Three adult women shared this apartment for a week. We were very comfortable and the apartment itself was what we expected from the photos on the website. Don't panic when you see the street entrance and stairway -- the apartment is nicer than these would lead you to believe. The booking experience was great -- quick response, helpful suggestions, quick deposit refund. The apartment was very clean and had everything we needed for a week's stay. While we did not make anything other than coffee in the kitchen, it looked to be very well equipped. The apartment building is indeed very old, but the appliances and fixtures are modern and the Internet worked perfectly. The beds, including the sofa bed, were comfortable and the sheets and towels of a nice quality. With that said, I would definitely rent from "Paris for Rent" again (which is why I am responding "yes" to the "would you recommend..." question below), but I don't think I would rent this apartment again, because of the location. It is not a particularly nice street and not especially convenient to things. One night, we decided to try one of the local restaurants suggested in the Paris for Rent notebook that was in the apartment -- the first two were no longer in business, and the third had moved to another location. (However, the fourth one, which we did go to, was just lovely and one that we probably would not have found on our own.) I have lived in Paris and visited many times, and this is just not an area that I care to stay in again, but that may be personal preference as much as anything.

"Good location, clean and safe"

We stayed two weeks at the apartment. It was like being at home. Comfortable and with many amenities. The washer and dryer was helpful.

“Very convenient - very comfortable!”

We booked r. de Vertus for one week, of which four days were shared with old friends from UK. Fortunately, the flat was a proper 1-bedroom, with a v. large living/dining area containing a sofa bed for our guests, so privacy for all hands ensured. The bedroom was extremely quiet, being at rear of building; the guest quarters had some street noise, but this diminished well before one retired - I mean this IS Paris, right? An adequate kitchen, with a gas range, nice fridge&freezer, and plenty of on-demand hot water. V. nice bathroom, with separate WC - an excellent feature when there were four people in residence! There is central heating, but it rarely was used (mainly for heated towel rack occasionally). Only minor cavil re: kitchen was lack of cooking utensils, though adequate for preparing breakfasts and light lunches. Again, this IS Paris, and we ate out nightly, of course! Ah, must mention the three flights of curved staircases - n.b., there is no elevator, so renters must have stout hearts in order to schlepp luggage up to room! Biggest feature of apt. was its marvelous location: boatloads of shops, restaurants, cultural requisites minutes away in any direction, including the stunning PROMENADE DES PLANTEES, the precursor to NYC Hi-Line. Place des Vosges just round the corner, and many boulangeries, supermarches, fromageries, wine shops, etc., on the busy r. St-Antoine ca. 100m away. Would return for sure, can't beat the location/apt. quality/price relationship.
