Perfect Location, Comfortable Apartment
We really enjoyed our week in the apartment. As noted in the headline, it couldn't have been in a better spot. Virtually the entire city is walkable from there and the metro is a block away if you don't want to walk. Less than five minutes from The Seine and a block or two from good food and a supermarket. We were not out super late, but the neighborhood felt safe.
The apartment itself was comfortable for two people. It might be a little close for four, but it could be done. The kitchen sink is tiny, but the dishwasher works well so you don't have to clean too much in the sink. Working the appliances could have been a little easier, but that was primarily a language barrier between the appliance and me. We had plenty of dishes, silverware, pots, pans, etc.
I had a hard time turning up the heat, so depending on when you stay, make sure Thierry tells you how to do it. He's very friendly and helpful.
Be prepared to walk up winding stairs (no elevator), so if you bring big suitcases make sure someone in the party is capable of carrying them up quite a few stairs.
All in all a very good experience. Not luxurious, but practical, comfortable and enjoyable. We would stay there again in the future.

Great location - walk to everything/safe neighbourhood
Thierry Blouin, the manager met us in person and explained how everything worked and the best Paris sights/local restaurants & grocery stores. Although the apartment is small, it was wekk-equipped and had almost everything we (2 couples) needed for our one week stay. The Marais neighbourhood is within walking distance of a lot of the Paris sights and with the Metro station only a block away, getting around was simple. We felt safe even at night in the vibrant bohemian area. The kitchen could have used better pots & pans but with so many restaurants just steps away, it wasn't a major problem The free WiFi and international phone calls were a much appreciated bonus!

The apartment was amazing and the trip so incredibly wonderful.
Thank you for such a wonderful "home" away from home in Paris. As always, the experience was exceptional.
We look forward to staying again with Paris Interiors on our next trip, which we are planning for December. I will be in contact with you in the near future to begin working on that contract.
Merci comme toujours!
"Eight Days in Marais Apt."
Accurate and informative advanced information; very good service - arrived on time for our arrival and departure (9:00 am on Jan. 1). Excellent location, near
Metro but also very much within walking distance of many destinations.
Everything worked - shower, hot water, dish washer, heat, TV, internet, stove. Beds were basic but comfortable, we slept five easily. Also very clean and neat.
It wasn't cheap but the value was very good. We were very happy with the choice and recommend it.
Thank you so much for your note. We had a marvelous time in Paris - your apartment was perfect and charming. Xavier was so kind...the location was ideal and we only wish we could have stayed longer.
Many thanks and best regards
We both loved the apartment very very much.
Next time in paris, we both said we would want to go back there. it was a perfect size with everything you could want. nicely decorated etc. but best of all, the location was fantastic. we walked everywhere. very very central and in the best area (i think) in paris.
I'm thinking of coming to paris for 6 months. I loved the apartment and was wondering if you would be interested in renting it for a longer period of time, and how much you woud want or it. I'm likely not coming till aug or sept, but i'm starting my planning and budgeting to see if it will be possible.
Hope you are doing well. So hope to see you soon.
We had a wonderful time. We just got back from our European vacation 2 days ago. Your apartment was perfect for all of us and Sophie was terrific. I would recommend your apartment to anyone who wanted to visit Paris. It was right in the middle of everywhere we wanted to go. We loved it!
Thank you very much for everything!
The apartment was great. Super location, we were able to see many things very easily. Unfortunately my youngest daughter was ill for 3 days, so we could not do as much as we had planned.
