EVAN L to rent this apartment
Stayed at the Marais apartment early July 2013. The apartment was very beautiful, nicely decorated, and very comfortable. Compared to other Paris apartments, this one is quite large and spacious. We never felt cramped or wanting for more space. Most important to us, was the fact that the apartment was very clean. Not perfect, but almost completely spotless. No smells or odors either. There is no AC in the apartment, and early July was pretty warm. That said, Parisaddress supplied us with two fans that kept us cool at night. There are many windows to open, and cross-breezes are frequent. This is a fifth floor apartment, and the elevator was nice to have when we needed it. The kitchen is nicely appointed with a stove, refrigerator, and dishwasher that all worked great. The fridge was clean as was the stove and oven. The sink counter is wooden, and the frequent water is starting to take its toll on the wood. We'd suggest replacing the wood with marble or putting a heavy waterproof varnish on the wood. Still, it wasn't a big deal. The bathrooms were nice and clean. Keep in mind, there's only one toilet, but there are four sinks. There's a bathtub which is nicely placed as well. The stand up shower was clean, hot, and worked perfectly. Regarding location, if you want an active, convenient, lively part of town, the Marais apartment is really happening. There were no noise issues with the exception of construction happening across the street and courtyard, but that was temporary. Close to the apartment were grocery stores, parks, playgrounds, lots of dining, bars, and shopping. Best of all, we were very professionally greeted by Carlos who works for Parisaddress. He was prompt, courteous, and showed us the whole apartment in and out - very thorough. Carlos was very nice, very helpful, and answered calls and emails immediately. He made a wonderful first impression. Additionally, working on the booking with Paris address was easy and efficient. It's always scary to book online without talking to anyone, but I can say that Parisaddress was very good to work with and very reputable. All in all, this is a clean, spacious, beautiful apartment located in a great part of Paris. We would easy return back to this same apartment. Tell Carlos we said bonjour and merci beaucoup!
