Clean, roomy apartment in GREAT location!

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying in this roomy, bright, comfortable apartment in a great neighborhood just steps from the Filles du Calvaire metro stop. Nice size bedrooms, comfortable beds, with plenty of room for clothes in armoires. Living/dining room area is beautiful and spacious. We didn't do any cooking other than breakfast but kitchen was really nice (looked better than in pics) and well stocked with dishes, cutlery, pans, etc. Minimal staples such as oils, spices, but the grocery store (Carrefour on Rue Amelot) is less than a 5 minute walk and has everything you could want, including wine, spirits, and beer. The internet was really spotty, didn't work at all at first and then just started working. We were out exploring most of the time so we bought packages on our iPhones. The location was the best part of this rental (bordering on the 3rd and 11th arrondissements).....loved Marais area and all the wonderful cafes, bakeries, shops, galleries! I would definitely stay here again! Found great restaurants close by: Les Philosophie was our favorite, Ober Mamma for Italian (they don't take reservations...go early and stand in's worth it), La Pharmacie, and La Vache Acrobate. Le Clown Bar is directly behind apartment but we couldn't get a reservation...heard its good. Can't wait to return to Paris and stay here again!

Comfortable and great location

  • 5 of 5

Spacious comfortable apartment in a great location. Despite a last minute rental all was well and ready when I arrived. As typical in a Parisian apartment the utilities are minimal but adequate and functional. The beds are comfortable, the shower has good pressure, the kitchen is well equipped with all appliances and a washing machine.

Great neighborhood and a metro station at the door!

Special thanks to Sabine for her gracious welcome.

Great apartment

  • 5 of 5

Large apartment in a great location. One line of the metro was right outside the door and 2 large stations were within an easy walk. I would definitely recommend this apartment to anyone.

Wonderful apartment, great location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our second time at this apartment. Sabine, the apartment manager, is so welcoming and helpful. Great location, close to the metro, very spacious and convenient to restaurants and grocery stores, along with a wonderful coffee and pastry shop. The washer- dryer was so nice to have during the week. We would all recommend this apartment to others.

A good choice for 2 couples or a family.

We are veteran Parisian vrbo-ers, so the apartment's few shortcomings were not a surprise or a problem. Toilet room is very claustrophobic. Kitchen needs a set of decent knives (chef knife, bread knife, etc.) and large drinking glasses. The usual larder (leftover oil, salt, etc., from previous guests) was very meager; be prepared to buy everything you want or need. Wi-fi was frustratingly spotty; needed several complete reboots (power and ethernet cables). We had cool and inclement weather, so we had the excellent triple-glazed bedroom windows closed at night, but in warm summer weather, with the windows wide open, the noise from the four street-level bars directly opposite might disrupt your sleep.

That said, on the whole we enjoyed the place a great deal: layout, location, nearby amenities. The beds were comfortable. The shower and hot water in general were fine. The dining room table seated six. We didn't use the telephone, but calls to North American landlines are free. We used the in-house washing machine to wash our clothes but went up the street toward Republique to dry them at a coin laundry (only 2 euros for a whole load). Way faster and way dryer than the apartment machine.

Metro stop and several bus routes right outside.The Carrefour on Rue Amelot is the best, nearest large grocery. The boulangerie that placed 3rd in the Best Baguette in Paris competition for 2017 is just down the street (Boulangerie Dupain, 20 Boulevard des Filles du Calvaire). There are excellent markets nearby, especially the Bastille market on Thursdays and Sundays.

ONE CAVEAT: Do not use the HSBC cash dispenser on the street below. The ATM is corrupted; two of us had our debit cards invalidated by our home banks after using the machine.

Very comfortable with an excellent locatin

  • 5 of 5

Even though our flight was two hours late the very gracious apartment manager, Sabine, was there to greet us and gave us a very thorough run down of the apartment. When she learned that my wife and I were celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary she went to the store and purchased a bottle of champagne. The apartment is very spacious and very comfortable for us and our two adult daughters. Prior to trip I was in communication with the owner, Gregory, who responded very quickly to my communications. Even though the apartment is on a very busy street, Blvd du Temple, if you close the windows you shut out the sound. The back of the apartment is across the street from an extremely popular restaurant, Clown Bar. The owner has put in very thick windows that completely shut out the noise that goes well into the night. From our perspective one of the greatest aspect was the location to the Metro which is just outside the front door of the apartment. After a long day in Paris it was very welcoming knowing that our apartment was only steps away from the Metro stop. We would stay in this apartment again if we ever have the opportunity to visit Paris again.
