Review 3290: Drawbridge to Europe, Rue St Martin (#1900)


Review by Rose from US

Studio apartment in 3rd arrondissement, Paris


October 2007, 2 weeks


It was ideally located in Paris; close to several metro stops, and minutes to the Centre Pompidou with all the nearby cafes, restaurants and shops. Three metro stops were a five minute walk away. The building was a charming old apartment building with a winding staircase, yet the apartment itself was bright, airy, and newly renovated. It is on a quiet street which is not a through-way, no not much traffic. I really liked the area because it was so central and had so many conveniences nearby, yet wasn't busy and touristy.

Nearby Amenities

My recommendations for the area: The Monoprix at Blvd Sebastopol had everything I could need for meals, etc. and was convenient walking distance, less than ten minute walk. A smaller grocery store was literally right around the corner. Within two blocks were countless restaurants, bakeries, take-aways, and cafes. Be sure to walk to the rue des Rosiers and eat at As du Falafel ... I guarantee you won't be able to eat there just once!

The House/Apartment

My stay at this apartment in Paris met and exceeded all of my expectations! The apartment was clean, newly updated, had all the modern conveniences I could need, and was very comfortable. It was a perfect home away from home! The host was more than helpful, and I felt very safe and comfortable there.

You can view the property directly: Rue St Martin.



Furnishings/Cleanliness/Living Areas

Everything seemed fairly new, all in good condition, very comfortable.


I didn't cook full meals there, but the kitchen was well-stocked for preparing snacks, light meals, coffee and breakfast, etc.

Agency and Representatives (and price)

The owner of the apartment was American and lives in Paris, he met me at the apartment was was gracious and welcoming despite the fact that I was so late. The agency representative in Paris was located across the street and also spoke English, and was available in case I needed anything.

Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?

Yes! The apartment had everything my fiance and I needed: Internet, phone, flat-screen TV, CD player, stocked kitchen, and was so clean and comfortable. It was the perfect location. I would recommend this apartment or this rental agency to anyone going to Paris, and I would love to stay there again.
