Lina has been a perfect host. The communication was good, she also gave us a very good recommendations in very good restaurants where we enjoyed a lot ! The neighbourhood was quiet, safe in the centre of Marais,in 5 minutes walk to les Vosges. The flat is very unique, it is a classic- antique French building very light with the artistic Lina's style. We were very comfortable, bed very comfy, we cooked there with no problems, we didn't miss anything in the flat. We definitely will try to stay there if we come back to Paris.
L'ultime avantage de cet appartement est sa location, il est très bien situé dans le Marais.
Il s'agit d'un assez grand appartement, une rareté à Paris, ce qui est appréciable si vous êtes plus qu'un couple.
Cela dit, le logement est peu entretenu, la cuisine, la salle de bain et la toilette nécessitent des rénovations. Lors de notre passage, un seul rond de la cuisinière était fonctionnel, ce qui ne nous a pas permis de cuisiner de repas dans l'appartement. Il a aussi fallu régler manuellement le chauffe-eau, selon les instructions de Lina, car nous manquions d'eau chaude après une seule douche.
Merci de votre commentaire. Comme toujours, il y a des points de vue très divers entre les personnes. Je voudrais en tout cas préciser deux choses: L'appartement est situé au plein marais est c'est donc un appartement ancien. Les toilettes et salle de bains ne sont pas remodelées comme les photos le montrent, mais ils sont dans un bon état. Oui, il y a eu un problème électrique avec les plats de la cuisinière, mais cela n'empêche pas du tout de se préparer à manger, (problème qui est entrain d'être résolut en tout cas). Concernant l'eau, il y a un ballon électrique d'eau chaude qui est suffisant pour au moins 4 douches (bien évidement pas 4 douches de une heure chaque une) et avoir la possibilité de mettre en marche le ballon plus longtemps en cas de besoin manuellement, n'est pas du tout un problème, tout le contraire, c'est une facilité en cas de besoin. Merci en tout cas.
First the positives. It was pleasant and responsive. She was prompt and good with communication. The negatives were there we had no place to hang up clothes and the place was very dirty. The bed was uncomfortable and there was a crying baby for three daysthat room done the other side of the master bedroom wall. The flat is three flights up and the stairway can be a bit dark and skinny. I wish we would've known about no closet space. Also there really isn't a living room to congregate although there is a study. But that room is dark and we had to use it to store our closest there were no drawers or closets. I would not recommend this place and we would not go back.
We had a nice stay at Lina's flat, which is perfectly located in the heart of Le Marais. She was very accommodating regarding arrival. The apartment was comfortable, though the walk up 3 flights with heavy luggage wasn't the best. The internet worked great and the was as described. There was an electrical issue with the stove, so we shorted the power out a few times while making water for tea. Other than that, all was well!
Getting into the apartment was made very easy and straightforward, and the apartment itself was stunning - light and surprisingly spacious. Everything was exactly as described on the website. The artwork in the apartment was both fascinating and beautiful, and the dining area tempted us away from the excellent local restaurants more than once! The kitchen was easy to use and provided ample space for storing food and wine. The bedroom was very comfortable, and filled with glorious light throughout the day.
The location was extremely convenient. There are several major museums in easy walking distance - we got to the Carnavalet and the Musee de la Chasse, both of which are not to be missed, and the beautiful Place des Vosges is a short walk away. The Marais itself is a wonderful place - the area around the Rue St Claude is fascinating. It is also very easy to get round the rest of Paris, with a Metro station less than five minutes walk away.
This is a very exciting and atmospheric place to stay in, and one that really makes you feel that you are in Paris, the City of Light.
Now this is what living in Paris is all about. The apartment is very spacious for a Parisian flat. You're getting a full kitchen, dining room, living room with two desks and a bedroom. The apartment is in a quiet part of La Marais district with a cafe 20 feet from the front door of the building. There's also metro line 8 just a block away.
You'll receive two gate codes when checking in, one for the exterior of the building and one for the interior. We later discovered there are light switches you can press for the stairwell so you don't have to go up the three flights in the dark :-) The Uber from CDG airport was only 30 euros.
Lina was very accommodating and patient with us considering we booked the place one day earlier than we needed to. She was kind enough to send someone out again the following day to leave us a key to the place. There's cool art all over the apartment, funky painting in the kitchen and a wine opener. What more do you need? We would definitely stay again if she lets us :-)
