Review #13572431 “For Family and friends, up to 6 guests, GET OFF 15% FROM NOV-MARCH”


October 29, 2015


Just as described
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
This apartment is everything that is promised. Spacious living room/dining area, well-stocked kitchen, big windows, quiet neighborhood. I especially liked the comfortable living room furniture (we have stayed in places where every chair was ready to fall apart!). The tv and wifi worked well. The neighborhood is good. Yvonne greeted us and gave us lots of advice. The information emailed to us before we arrived told us exactly what to do and what to expect.
We received one set of keys and I would have preferred to get a second set, as we were three adults. Otherwise, no complaints.



September 2015
Great apartment in Le Marais (3rd Arrondissement) with trendy shops, great restaurants, Picasso museum around the corner. This apartment is in a lovely building, one floor up, but there’s an elevator if you prefer. Very reliable wi-fi, some American TV channels, including CNN. Ruben, our host, made the arrangements for a car to pick us up at the airport – our wonderful driver, Hakim, gave us a great narrative as we drove, and even gave us his phone number should we need anything during our stay. Florence, Ruben’s associate, met us at the apartment, went over the details of how everything worked and where to find whatever we might need. She also gave us a great orientation of the neighborhood. We would definitely stay at Calm and Serenity again. There isn't a way to add a 1/2 star to our four stars, so I'll just say here that Calm and Serenity is a 4.5 star property.

Reubens was an amazing host. The apartment is perfect we loved everything. It is pretty big and the location is key. I would highly recommend staying here.

Thank you, Ruben! For my first trip to France, I chose this apartment to stay in with my cousin, Mother-In-Law, and friend. My Mother-In-Law and her friend arrived first and checked in. Ruben's assistant met them at the apartment and showed them around and made them feel welcome. There was a bottle of wine, bottled water, and some soda in the fridge for us to drink, and coffee and tea which was essential for those first few jet-lagged days! The apartment was very nice and clean and looked just like the photos. I slept on the sofa bed, which was very comfortable, and everyone else slept in the two bedrooms. We didn't spend much time in the apartment, but when we were there we felt comfortable and relaxed. The location of the apartment is great! It is located in an area stuffed full of cafes, shops, bakeries, and several grocery stores are in the neighborhood. We were able to find everything we needed within a few blocks, and it was easy to get to Metro stations and bus stops. I would highly recommend staying here

A great experience all round. Fantastic apartment - looks just like the pictures. Lots of space, and fully equipped. Ruben's associate, Jodie, met us on arrival, and showed us everything we needed to know. The area is great. The apartment is located in a quiet street with no traffic noise, yet the bottom of the road is busy with a vibrant atmosphere - a good combination. Metro stations are within easy walking distance. My son slept on the sofa bed, and was very comfortable. Ruben came to say hello during the week, and was accessible all the time when we had questions. A great guy. We would gladly rent this unit - or any of Ruben's units - again. Thanks for a great experience.

Review #12369910 “Vivre Paris comme un Parisien!”

Excellent emplacement au cœur du Marais, à distance raisonnable à pied de plusieurs stations de métro. Nombreux cafés, restaurants et boutiques. Parc pour enfants à deux pas.
L'appartement lui-même est sûr et sécuritaire. Les voisins sont polis et respectueux. Un des murs de la chambre des maîtres et le salon donnent sur la cage d'escalier et d’ascenseur. Pas de silence complet mais quand même très bien pour Paris!
L'espace salon-salle à manger-cuisine est à air ouverte. La chambre des maîtres comprend un grand garde-robe et donne sur la cour intérieure; juste la place pour dormir. L'autre chambre est toute petite et ne comprend qu'un lit simple. Tous les lits sont TRÈS confortables. La salle de bains est petite et la douche est exiguë pour une grande personne. Cette pièce aurait aussi besoin d'être rénovée. La cuisine comprend une machine Nespresso, des capsules de café et tout le nécessaire de base pour faire la cuisine (condiments, etc.).
WiFi parfaite même avec plusieurs appareils.
Lisez bien toute la documentation fournie avec la location ; elle est très complète.
Ruben est EXTRAORDINAIREMENT coopératif.

“Ottimo appartamento in posizione ideale.”

L'appartamento è spazioso, pulito, molto confortevole e silenzioso. Vi abbiamo soggiornato comodamente in sei anche se i posti letto disponibili sono 5 (un letto matrimoniale un divano letto ed un letto singolo).
Ruben, il proprietario, ci ha messo a disposizione un letto gonfiabile per il sesto posto ma non ne abbiamo avuto bisogno perché il letto matrimoniale era abbastanza ampio da accoglierci in tre (due adulti ed una bimba di 8 anni).
La posizione è ottima, si trova nel cuore della città, a cinque minuti a piedi c'è la fermata della Metro "Hotel De ville", molto vicino anche alla Senna dove si può prendere il battello che risale fino alla torre Eiffel e ferma nei punti più turistici della città.
Il proprietario ci ha accolto con molta simpatia e si è dimostrato attento, disponibile e premuroso: nel frigo ci ha fatto trovare, oltre a bibite ed acqua fresca, un'ottima bottiglia di vino e nella dispensa un bel po' di generi di prima necessità e non: sale, olio, zucchero, caffè, e addirittura le cialde per fare un ottimo caffè espresso (rigorosamente italiano) con la macchina da caffè in dotazione.
Tornerò sicuramente qui nel mio prossimo viaggio a Parigi.
Grazie Ruben!

Review #11099986 “Great neighborhood to live like a Parisian ”
The location of this apartment can't be understated. It's in a great neighborhood full of cafes, boutiques, and restaurants. Easy walk to the Picasso Museum and Notre Dame for sightseers. If you're feeling spry, walk to the Louvre. ... If you have little children, there is a nearby park (Square du Temple) worth your while. It even has a rooster. ... Metros are easy walks as well.
As for the apartment itself, it's very safe and secure. Neighbors are polite. The noise in the stairwell carries, so you hear everything. Be mindful of that if you're looking for complete silence. .... The living room is spacious (can probably sleep four people if you have a big group), and if you insist on being a TV junkie, the cable is there. No issues with WiFi for multiple devices. ... The bathroom is small and the shower could be problematic for taller people. Other than that, no issues.
The secondary bedroom is quite small. The master bedroom, however, can sleep 2 people (3 if you have a small child) and there's a big armoire.
We worked primarily with Jodie, Ruben's assistant. She did a wonderful job in squashing anxieties you might have about Paris if you're a first- or second-time traveler to this city. (Having a functioning smartphone is half the battle in communicating any apt issues).
Definitely would return to this place.

Review #11013209 “Marais, Paris in January ”
We, my 80 year old mother, 4 year old daughter, my sister and myself ( ages between 4 and 80!!) enjoyed our stay very much in this Marais appartment. It is spacious and suited our needs adequately one week. 2 bedrooms and the sofa bed were all very comfortable. The street and area is very quiet. You can hear noise from the adjoining apartments above due to the wooden floors but it was not too bad overall.The TV had no children's tv station in English and for me was a bit complicated to figure out.I would suggest bringing dvd's if you want to keep a 4 year old occupied!
Everything worked appropriately in the apartment and supplied everything we needed for the week apart from a bath ( The 80 year and the 4 year olds prefer baths to showers!)or tumbledrier. Idon't agree with having to pay 80 euro extra for a cleaning service, in my opinion it should be included but that is quite a common practice. We all loved the Marsis area which has plenty of shops and nearby cafe s and restaurants. Several musuems were within walking distance including musee picasso and the pompidou centre. We caught taxis rather than the metro when we went further afield. You get to see all the sights above ground.There is so much to do in Paris and we loved it particularly the musee d'Orangerie and the Pompidou centre. My 4 year loved the ice skating rink, we went twice and the carrasols which were within a 15 minute walk and all very good value. Not everything in Paris is good value, musuems food /drinks are very expensive. Also beware of over charging taxi journies. My sister was charged 50 euro when she arrived by train for a less than 10 minute journey. The same journey cost 9 euro when she was leaving. We flew into Beauvais airport and had organised a taxi with Tioshuttle 1.5 hour journey for 115 euro right to our apartment. Hassle free.That was worth it and I would recommend their service.
I would recommend this apartment and would stay there again.

There are 2 bedrooms with comforable beds and the bathroom has an excellent shower with lots of hot water. Tha apartment is on the 1st floor (American 2nd floor) and has a lift.The area is delightful with lots of shopping, restaurants, and people watching. Two metro lines are a 10 minute walk away.
It was a pleasure to work with Ruben via email to arrange the rental

We loved our time in this light-filled apartment. The beds are extremely comfortable, the water hot, and the shower great. It is spacious and, even with guests, does not feel crowded. None of the rooms is on the street, so the apartment is calm and quiet. The neighborhood is marvelous for food shopping, people watching, and walking access to all the reasons you come to Paris: museums, restaurants, historic monuments, boulangeries... If you need a metro, there are several lines available, each within a few blocks. Ruben is a thoughtful host, providing all the basics and then some. He is always available when you need him, too. We want to return!

Review #9162373 “Felt at home”
First time I booked a flat on line. Must say was a bit anxious hoping everything goes well. And it did! Ruben was a wonderful host and the flat exactly like the photos. It is very well equipped, functional and spacious. Living in the Marais was also a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.

Review #8733633 Parisian at its best
Apparently, I'm the first to have had the amazing opportunity to live in this beautiful apartment. And it definitely made my virgin trip to Paris all the more wonderful. Firstly, the apartment is truly spacious with more than enough room for a group of 5. It is equipped with every possible facility such as a dishwasher, washing machine, heaters (if it gets cold), high-speed wifi, tv set and not to mention the comfortable beds, even the sofa bed! Even my most casual request for a rice cooker was attended to, thanks to Ruben! The apartment is located at Rue Du Perche, which made me do daily morning walks because it's surrounded by delicious cafes and lively bars. There's no way you'll go hungry. Personally, being a shopaholic, this area is heaven to me because there are boutiques and labels at every turn. American Apparel, Zadig & Voltaire, Bimba and Lola, Saturday.. You name it. To top it off, Ruben has been kind, gracious, helpful and most importantly, trustworthy throughout the process of renting the apartment. Even though he couldn't welcome me on my first day there, he sent a lovely colleague who walked us through everything we needed to know about the apartment such as how to use the washing machine (yes, because it was in French!), tv, wifi, how to lock safely lock the doors etc. She also took us around the neighborhood to show us where to get groceries, places to eat and the nearest subway. All in all, I've been lucky to live here and to have met such wonderful people who made us feel at home. If I do have to state a downside, it would be that the apartment still smells of fresh paint!! However, I think it would have been gone by now :)

Review #8728465 Great Apartment - Exceeded Expectations!
Awesome apartment!!! My family and I were among the first guests at this new apartment and I have to say that I am always nervous about reserving things online but this place completely exceeded my expectations! I just loved the big open living area and the high ceilings - it was so comfortable for our group. The building is beautiful, and we loved all the cafes and shopping in the Marais neighborhood. Sightseeing is very easy, with several metro stations, and we walked to a lot of places, too. The bed in the master bedroom was big and very comfortable. Ruben was an excellent host, both with emailing and greeting us upon arrival. The apartment was very well equipped, particularly in the kitchen - we even had cooking supplies, coffee, - it's so nice to have these things already in the apartment when you arrive. He even had plug adapters for all of our American phone chargers!! I hope we'll be able to return to Paris someday soon and stay in this wonderful home! Thank you, Ruben!
