Covering Paris’ central 3rd and 4th arrondissements, the Marais is the oldest neighborhood in the city, where medieval roads and architecture now contain designer boutiques, intimate museums, hip cafés, and hidden gardens. Just down the street from the Hôtel de Ville city hall, the Pompidou museum exhibits a wonderful range of modern art on four, expansive floors. In the center of the Marais, thanks to its historic Jewish heritage, you’ll find take-away and sit-down falafel restaurants and delis aplenty, including the world-famous L’As du Falafel, the newer Miznon, and ever-popular Sacha Finkelsztajn deli. Pick up a sweet treat from Pierre Hermé, Café Pouchkine, or L’Éclair de Génie and enjoy it in the calm sunshine of Place des Vosges, the oldest square in Paris, or escape the crowds at the hidden Rosiers-Joseph Migneret garden. History buffs will appreciate the Musée Carnavalet, a history museum dedicated to the city of Paris, as well as the fascinating Musée des Archives, both troves of rare documents and artifacts. The recently renovated Picasso museum and the hunting museum, Musée de la Chasse et de la Nature, are fantastic options as well. Head towards metro St-Paul to rummage through the most unique antique and vintage shops in the area. Much of the Marais’ popular and varied nightlife scene caters to Paris’ gay population, but there is undoubtedly something to please everyone. The North Marais, toward Place de la République, is where you’ll find the delicious marché des Enfants Rouge and nearby cultural event center, Carreau du Temple, surrounded by a number of Paris’ trendiest cafés and clandestine cocktail bars.

I had a wonderful stay in this apartment. The location was absolutely perfect for me - a view of the beautiful Place des Vosges, around the block from an excellent patisserie, walking distance from many favorite restaurants (and the Bastille market!), and of course the wonderful Marais just out the front door with its bounty of shops, cafes, galleries and cultural opportunities. The apartment was well appointed, with an excellent kitchen and bathroom. I appreciated a few staples in the kitchen and good utensils for cooking. The shower in the bathroom was spacious and there was an abundance of good quality towels. Everything was immaculate, and the bed was comfortable. The HIP team was responsive to any questions that I had, as was my greeter, Loredana. There was a thorough book of information pertaining to the apartment that included local recommendations. Finally, the neighbors were friendly and I felt very welcomed. I would love to return to this special spot and will happily recommend to others.
We had a great time and there is very little I could think of to change. The kitchen had all the necessities. Our hostesses, Florence and Loredana, were both extremely helpful and timely. The flat was very clean and orderly. We used two drivers and they were both wonderful. We used Marc and Sayshuttle. I would like to add that the Place des Vosges is the perfect neighborhood for touring and for relaxing, eating, and drinking. We hardly ever went further than we could walk, because there was so much to do and see. The food and wine vendors, as well as restaurants, within a few blocks are so good there is no reason to venture beyond.
My mom and I are visiting Paris for the first time and this apartment right on Place des Vosges was perfect! We loved the efficient space and big windows. Loredana was a delightful greeter and we could not have been better cared for as first time visitors! The Marché de Bastille was divine -- so many beautiful foods and flowers and people! Merci beaucoup!
The apartment was very nice and great location. I was checked by Loredana and she was wonderful- very accommodating to schedule changes, and very thorough with instructions for apartment. The booklet about apartment provided other helpful information and reminders that really helped.I also used the services of Marc Waters, to travel to and from airport and also a trip to Normandy. I highly recommend him, very professional and polite. Would definitely recommend HIP and come back in future!
This is the third Haven in Paris apartment we have enjoyed. It is comfortable and the amenities are terrific. The location is perfect. And Loredana is a wonderful person and greeter.
The Place De Vosges property is located in one of the best areas of Paris. It is located on the second floor and a lift is available, although we always used the stairs. It was a perfect size for us, we are two adults only. The apartment is appointed with modern furniture and appliances, a superb shower and very comfortable bed. Our greeter was waiting for us on arrival, even though our flight was much earlier than 4pm check in. She was extremely knowledgeable and of great assistance. There was only one time we needed to contact her and our query was dealt with on the spot. Our departure was as smooth as our arrival. We found the location perfect for our needs, close to many, many fine restaurants and metro stations with great local walks in all directions. This will be our choice for accomodation when we next visit Paris.
I have only the highest praise for HiP and the apartment that we rented. Loredana met us promptly on time and was gracious in her orienting us around the apartment. We found it impeccably cleaned and adequately stocked. The flowers were very beautiful and added a welcoming touch throughout the week. We didn't think we could care about the washer/dryer but ended up using them both, more than once! The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was perfect! We knew that the location would be lovely because we had stayed in the Marais neighborhood before but being situated so that we could actually see the Place de Voges from our living room widows was bucolic. In sum, we will definitely be back, probably to this very apartment should it be available, on our next trip to Paris. I would definitely recommend your services to a friend! I will try to place a review on the website, as well.
My girlfriend and I spent 10 days enjoying this apartment and the beautiful city of Paris. The apartment was smaller than we imagined based on the web site photos but was completely comfortable for the two of us. It was well stocked with everything we needed including a binder full of great information and a fun guest book with recommendations from previous guests. It is a bright space with beautiful windows that open wide to let in the sounds of the neighborhood. If you are looking for a quiet, peaceful apartment then this may not be the one for you. There is a fair amount of street noise including revelry noise from the late night restaurants below. The location is fantastic, so close to great cafes, restaurants, patisseries etc. The art galleries and shops surrounding this apartment are just lovely. There are several great museums within a few minutes walk. The parks and iconic narrow cobble stone streets make for enjoyable wondering and photography.
Paris is our favorite city in the world and the Marais is our favorite neighborhood in Paris! The apartment is perfect. My husband and I are celebrating our 60th birthdays and our 30th wedding anniversary this year, and Paris seemed like the obvious choice for such an occasion. A new find this trip was bistro Robert & Louise, right here in the Marais. Excellent fire cooked steaks. Merci!
The nine days that we spent at Place des Vosges far exceeded our expectations! The apartment is an absolute jewel and every detail from my first inquiry to our drop off by Mickael at CDG to come home was absolutely perfect. The apartment is simply charming and very comfortable. Our greeter Loredana was so dear and very helpful. We could not have asked for anything more and hope to return. I am so glad we booked through HiP!! Book your transport from the airport with David. You will be glad you did.
Such a great spot. Got to see so much. Great time in Paris & HiP made it a wonderful memory.
We had a lovely stay in this apartment. We have used Haven in Paris on a few occasions and will use again at the end of our trip to France. Very good location close to Place des Vosges and good cafes. Easy walk to the metro and other services and of course the wonderful musee Carnavalet about 5 minutes away.
Haven in Paris was a pleasure to work with. All of our questions, needs, changes, etc. were met with professionalism and courtesy. We had to change part of our stay and the team was able to re rent it for us on short notice. The refund check was actually at our house before we arrived home from Paris! Place des Vosges is a lovely apartment. Bright and beautiful. HIP provides everything you could possibly need during your stay. Umbrellas, a market cart, and even extra adapters! Loredana, our greeter was wonderful! She answered all of our questions and oriented us to everything in the apartment and the area. Desmond, our cleaner did an awesome job! It was spic and span clean! We will definitely be back and look forward to working with HIP again!
Hi HiP team - We had a great week in Paris at your Place des Voges apartment. Even though we have been to Paris many times before, this particular stay will be, in our memories, the favorite because of the location, the formula, and the comfort of your Place des Voges apartment. We have the intention to come back to this or another HiP address in Paris, Provence, or Tuscany. Thanks to Loredana, the cleaner, and the team!
We had a wonderful stay at the Place des Vosges property. Lovely apartment, airy, clean and all modern amenities. Our greeter, Loredana, was friendly and most efficient, always available when needed. Our favorite restaurant would have to be Chez Janou, just around the corner. The Bastille market is a "must" for lovely fresh produce. Thank you all at HiP for your efficient service. Also, thanks to Vincent for keeping the apartment immaculate. Will return!
It was a wonderful week staying in this lovely apartment. Everything was great and we used most of the good tips we got when we arrived. The area is one of the loveliest places in Paris and we loved the idea that there is a lot to do and see just around the corner. The apartment was also great with everything we needed. We appreciated Loredana's greeting with all the details we needed and for all the help. The next time we will visit here, a Haven in Paris apartment will definitely be our apartment. Thank you all!!
We had a fabulous stay at Place des Vosges. The apartment layout is efficient and aesthetically very pleasing, both of which are important to us. It was well-stocked with all that we needed for our month's stay. The apartment is full of light, from morning to evening, especially in the evenings when we could see the evening glow as the sun set over the Place. We fell in love with the Place des Vosges neighborhood, from where we could walk to everything. For us, the location was perfect. We left feeling we had lived in Paris for the month, not just visited. We highly recommend this modern updated apartment with its tasteful mix of modern convenience and stylish older furnishings.
The apartment was lovely, comfortable, informal, well-stocked, excellent location. I'd go back in a flash. Thank you so much. Wish we could have stayed twice as long.
What can I say? I usually don't write reviews but this is just too good to keep quiet. The apartment is fabulous; the design and layout of the space is superb, modern, clearly maintained to very high standards - no stains, chipping or old paint. The space is small but so beautifully laid out that it provides a perfect alternative to the hotel stay of one week or over. The busy street is muffled by the modernized windows and the location would be hard to beat. The furnishings are tasteful and uncluttered and the appliances new and efficient - so wonderful to be able to do laundry so conveniently. It is just what we were looking for and we are definitely going to rent it again - we are already looking at future dates! Loredana was sweet and welcoming - efficient in her presentation of the workings of the apartment. Vincent, who came to clean every week, is not only a delightful person, but very detail oriented in his thorough cleaning from floors to counter surfaces and beyond. He clearly cares about doing the best job and it showed, week after week. I would not hesitate to recommend this property to friends, neighbors, acquaintances - in fact, anyone I come across thinking of going to Paris for a week or more. Thank you so much for providing this wonderful service and making it so easy to have such a memorable stay.
We loved our apartment, it felt like home! Location was great, decoration was adorable, in general it was very practical and above all CLEAN :) . Also, in my opinion, free wi-fi, i-mac laptop and i-dock were reflections of good quality service. Our greeter was really kind, concerned and helpful. We will definitely recommend Haven In Paris to our friends and we are planning to come back asap!
All settled and thoroughly enjoying the fabulous location and the marvelous comfort of having such a perfect nest from which to explore this utterly gorgeous city. Loredana was lovely and welcoming and brought us up to speed on the apartment. It is perfect in size; beautiful in design and wonderful to have all the amenities needed for a month away from home. We love it!
The Places des Vosges apartment is a lovely, small apartment in an unrivalled position on the most beautiful square in Paris in a fascinating part of Paris - the Marais. There are two metros within a few minutes walk, so very convenient to all of Paris (if walking isn't your thing). As with all Haven in Paris apartments it meets all expectations with respect to style, quality furnishings and fittings. Although small, it is efficiently organised and laid out with plenty of room to store things and luggage. It's also has the added benefit of a lift. The only small drawback was the bed space which I found a bit claustrophobic, and the two large steps - one out of the bed area and the other I from the bathroom - with potential for falls if half asleep or jet lagged and disoriented. We took a lot of care to ensure this didn't happen, but it was a worry. Although, again a small thing, but really annoying was the complete absence of champagne glasses and decent wine glasses. The whole point of renting an apartment as opposed to staying in a hotel is the advantage of being able to experience the wonderful market food and try French wines at home rather than eating out every night. The kitchen was otherwise very well equipped so the lack of glasses was quite inexplicable. In summary, the Places des Vosges apartment is a lovely option for a couple and gets all the big things right with it's location as the number one advantage. Note from Haven in Paris: The bedroom area is definitely small, but comfortable. With the sliding door open, it should seem much bigger. We will make sure there are champagne and wine glasses. I am not sure why there were not!
We only stayed three nights...comfortable property very close to Place des Vosges...historical area. Property good for two persons but pretty small for more than that. Cleaner Vincent was extremely efficient and place was CLEAN. Greeter Loredena was prompt and did contact us before our departure and did answer her phone the one time I called her.
This was my first trip to Paris and it had been many years since my husband had been there. Haven in Paris assisted us in finding a wonderful apartment- Place des Vosges. We so enjoyed the neighborhood and the feeling that we were in the heart of Paris. The area has wonderful galleries, restaurants and shops and feels very safe. The apartment is lovely and modern with every convenience you need and was nicer than we anticipated. Our greeter was also helpful in her introduction to the apartment and neighborhood and I sensed she wanted our Paris experience to be perfect. We would definitely use Haven In Paris again and would consider Place des Vosges again. Although, it was such fun we might work with HIP to find another great neighborhood to explore next time. Thank you Haven In Paris. We had a great trip.
We have had excellent service both times we have rented through Haven in Paris. The location of the Place des Voges apartment is wonderful with easy access to most every location in the city. We especially liked the accessibility to the food markets Les Enfants Rouges and Marche Bastille as well as the Bastille Opera house. However, because the apartment is not air conditioned and is on a busy street with late night bar noise it is noisy for sleeping in warm weather.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well equipped, comfortable & well-situated apartment. Thank you for the professional service - very high quality.
How privileged we were not only to visit Paris, but to 'live' in Paris... if only for a week. The apartment and neighborhood made us feel right at home. Merci - A Bientot!
Our experience with Haven in Paris was fantastic. Prompt replies to emails when booking was helpful. Once we arrived we felt Haven in Paris was ready to help us if the need arrived. Our greeter was wonderful and we felt very welcome. We stayed in the Marais Apartment. It had a wonderful location, opposite Place des Vosges which was great for our 2 year old to play in the sand pit and gym equipment. The apartment was hot (as anywhere would be in Paris' summer), with minimal cross ventilation and no aircon- thankfully a fan was supplied but the small bedroom got quite hot with 3 of us sleeping in it. Street noise was audible during the night but that should be expected when you are staying in a busy area. One comment- the apartment had a beautiful velvet sofa which was very hot to sit on. It had wooden dining chairs which got hard and uncomfortable too. The only place I felt comfortable to read a book etc was to lie on the bed whereas I would have preferred to sit comfortably by an open window with the intense heat. Overall our experience was great.
Thank you for a wonderful stay in Paris - a true "haven" in the city. After 2 weeks in Brittany and Normany, we needed to readjust to city life and the perfect location and comfort made the Place des Vosges apartment a perfect fit!
Our family of four thoroughly enjoyed our ten day stay in this apartment! The location is superb; close to the metro, lots of good restaurants and shops conveniently close and easy to walk to. The apartment itself felt more spacious with four of us in it than we would have thought from the website. It's very smartly laid out, comfortable and homey to return to after a day out in Paris! Our daughters, ages 11 and 14, found the fold out sofa bed very comfy, as was the bed. Roger our greeter was really friendly, very helpful, responded promptly to any questions and it put us at ease to know he was there if needed. I cannot recommend Haven in Paris enough. From start to finish, they made the whole process enjoyable and easy. This was our first time doing an apartment rental on vacation, and we are already plotting our next trip!
We had an absolutely incredible time in the Place Des Vosges property. The apartment was in a beautiful area , had all the necessary amenities (the washing machine and tumble dryer was very welcome after our preceding travels) and looked exactly as it did in the pictures on the website. Our greeter, Roger, was very friendly and warm and not only took us through the apartment but also gave us tips on the surrounding area (markets, metro stops, etc). It was so nice having an English-speaking greeter. We also felt we could call Roger whenever we needed (although we didn't need to). The end to end service provided by HIP was great, from our initial enquiry, to booking processes and even check in during our stay. I would (and already have) highly recommend HIP.
Renting from Haven in Paris was a very good experience overall. We found the team very helpful and receptive to any requests or comments we had. The greeter for the apartment was communicative, prompt, friendly and informative both before and during our stay. The property was delightful and exactly as pictured and described on the website. The facilities were newly renovated and the apartment was immaculately clean and well equipped. The location of the Place des Vosges property was ideal! We couldn't have asked to be better situated for access to our favorite part of Paris.
From the very first e-mail inquiry to the e-mails during our stay my family and I thoroughly enjoyed everything about stay in Paris! We could not have been in a better location, the apartment was spotless, and very comfortable.
The whole process went as smoothly as I could have hoped for. Erica was amazing in trying to find an apartment that was in an area I liked and didn't exceed my budget. Genevieve and the rest of the team were equally efficient. All went perfectly during my 5 day stay. Roger, who greeted me locally, was pleasant and always willing to help, giving us helpful hints in the neighborhood. The only tiny problem I had was the first night with the building door codes (they were wrong on the brochure) but all was solved within minutes by someone in the building who gave us the correct codes. No major deal at all. In short, a great place that made me feel at home and where I would come back to again and again and again! Thanks for making my stay in Paris so very special.
We had a great time in Place des Vosges apartment. All was well organized, Roger greeted us warmly and was very helpful in giving us some information about the neighbourhood and the apartment (which by the way was very nice and clean, well equipped and cosy at the evenings, which we mostly spent at home, having some cheese and baguette and wine). Your organisation was perfect, the extremely friendly team and our greeter Roger. If we travel again to Paris (or London), we surely will contact only you.
Can't we just keep this secret between us and the rest of us in this book... I mean we don't want the word to get out too far... so we can just keep it to ourselves... A dream oasis in the middle of Paris!! Thank you to all at Haven in Paris and to Roger. We tried to be good campers and hope we can come again... The apartment was great--very clean and had good essentials that we needed to cook. Roger was very helpful; He took the time to explain everything to us and was just a phone call away if we needed anything. He also gave us some good advice on shopping and getting around the neighborhood. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was wonderful, as was the stove and towel-warmer. Laurent was our driver back to the airport. He was right on time and helped us with our bags. He obviously is a skilled driver and knows the best routes to the airport.
Love, love this apartment and area! The apartment had everything to create a great space to be in for a few days. Haven in Paris was professional from start to end!
We absolutely loved staying at the Place de Vosges property for 9 nights in Dec 2012. The position was fantastic...close to wonderful cafes, shops, fabulous food markets and food stores and metro stations. The apartment had everything required for a long or short term stay. We loved the kitchen that was equipped with everything you could possibly need. Everything was top quality from the cookware to the Miele appliances and the large flat screen television. The apartment was spotless with plenty of cupboard space and was stocked with all essentials. Everything was thought of to make it easy to just move in! The bed very comfortable in its own space which was important to us as was an elevator. We would return in a heartbeat. Haven in Paris professional from start to finish including a warm and helpful welcome from Roger on our arrival and prior to our arrival.
I had a wonderful experience through HIP, in the past, so this time when I planned my trip with my mom, I went with you guys again and it was perfect. Our greeter, Roger was lovely and wonderful, and made us feel at ease. The property was exactly what I expected, the pictures are so amazingly accurate!
We had a wonderful stay in Paris and enjoyed the Place des Vosges apartment very much. It was clean and adequately equipped and perfectly located for our needs. Roger was both pleasant and informative as our greeter. All and all a great stay.
This is the second time I've rented from HIP. This time was equally as terrific as the first. The staff from reservations to concierge service, greeter, driver, onsite info, location all tres magnifique!
We had an amazing trip, and the apartment was wonderful. We would certainly use Haven in Paris for a future trip. I wanted to single out our greeter for special praise. He was warm, friendly, knowledgeable, and really helped to make our transition into and out of the apartment wonderful.
We had a wonderful time and really have only good things to say about our stay in your Place des Voges apartment. We loved the personal touch of flowers, coffee and wine to greet us on arrival. Cleaning was excellent. All staff contacts: email, drivers, cleaner and greeters polite, friendly and easy to communicate with. Only thing I would have liked is a full length mirror otherwise the apartment was well stocked and designed for a very comfortable stay. We will choose to use your company again.
We have had such a lovely time in our apartment. A great neighborhood with loads of great shops, restaurants and more. Thank you, Haven in Paris, for everything. The apartment is beautiful and clean. Thank you, also, to Loredana for taking such good care of us! We hope to return soon.
What a remarkable apartment for a stay in Paris. It is lovely, and being so close to the Place des Vosges makes us feel very lucky every morning. We appreciate the cordial and professional work of Haven in Paris.
We thoroughly enjoyed our time in the Place des Vosges apartment and would definitely recommend it to others. The bedroom is small but the living space is completely fine and there is a lot of good storage. It is clean and well stocked and very nicely located, literally next door to Place des Vosges. Our greeter was excellent as well and took very good care of us. We had an overall excellent experience with Haven in Paris and highly recommend the company and this apartment.
We certainly did have a wonderful stay in the Places des Vosges property, thank you to your entire team for holding our hands in booking and checking into the apartment which enabled us to have such a special time.
One suggestion is to inform renters that they need to bring transformers (e.g., for flatiron) in addition to adapters. Otherwise, the greeting process, the quality of the apartment, and the location were superb. Loradena was most helpful during the stay, which we appreciated. Thank you! Note from HIP: We try to have a couple of extra converters in each of our apartments. However, we can not guarantee this as sometimes people accidentally take them home with them.
Beautiful neighborhood, great apartment and Paris all over the place. Can one ask for more? Many good restaurants - we recommend Aux Vieux Paris on Rue Chanoinesse on Île de la Cité.
The Place des Vosges apartment was wonderful. The location cannot be beat and the apartment itself was very light and bright even in the darkest of rainy days. While compact, the apartment had everything necessary to allow me to pretend to be a true Parisian. I love having a gas stove and with both a washer and dryer I could do a couple of loads of laundry at the same time which was very convenient. It was also wonderful to have so many different Metro stops so close. The apartment was exactly as represented in the pictures and I cannot recommend it or Haven in Paris highly enough. Tres Bien!
Merci beaucoup! We had a lovely stay at the Place des Vosges apartment during our (very) short visit in Paris. The apartment was perfect - modern amenities, nicely decorated, perfect size, and the most comfortable bed. The location was ideal - close to the Metro, great shopping and right on the park. We will definitely stay at a Haven in Paris for our next visit to Paris!
Great place, great times! Thank you!
The apartment was spotless and your 2 greeters absolutely wonderful.
Haven in Paris should be called Heaven in Paris! The apartment was exactly as showed on the website and in real even better. The location near Places des Voges is outstanding. Direct metro connection from Gare du Nord and in the place to be or hot spot of Paris. Experience Paris like a Parisian. In Dutch we have a saying: "Living like God in France". Our rental experience with Haven in Paris came close.
We came to Paris for our honeymoon and have found the apartment the perfect location to absorb ourselves into this most romantic city. The Marais itself is extremely lively with far too many food choices! We need another few weeks here! We were surprised by the great space in the apartment. It was bigger than we imagined. We will never forget this trip.
We had a wonderful week for our first time in Paris. This apartment was the perfect place to rest after long days of touring the city. The Marais is an amazing location with amazing cafes, shops, and centrally located near the metro. We will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time in Paris, and having what felt like a real home to come back to at the end of the day was a big part of that. We absolutely loved the neighborhood and our apartment let us feel like Parisians. The apartment is clean, modern, well-renovated, and truly has everything you need. It is perfectly located by several cafes, markets, shops, and metro lines. And you can't beat the view of Place des Vosges from your window. We hope to be back soon!
Nothing can compare to this apartment. I was surprised and thankful for how well equipped the kitchen--and whole flat--was. Never did I expect such good, sharp knives! It was great to be able to recharge at the end of the day in such a spacious and quiet apartment. This trip to Paris was the best one yet. We will return!
We stayed in place des vosges apartment in autumn 2011 and have nothing but praise for all aspects of this property! a quality renovation, capable and precise greeter, loads and loads of beautiful linen and towels (heaven)and the cleaning after the first week was well beyond our expectation. security was excellent and the location, right in the centre of restaurants,galleries,shops! hope the word about this apartment does not get around as we do not want to miss out on our next holiday. a beautiful bunch of roses (lasted 2 weeks) and a good year bottle of wine rounded of a very pleasant arrival. thank you haven in paris and roger and loredana.
The apartment at Place Des Vosges is wonderful. It is modern, very clean and well organized. The kitchen has everything you need, and not a single thing more; there is no clutter. It felt bigger than it is because it is bright, with high ceilings and well-thought-out layout and storage. The location is great, close to markets (the Sunday market was fabulous!), restaurants and the metro. Roger, our greeter, is terrific; he gave us a lot of information and was very helpful. We've already recommended Haven in Paris to friends.
We have been to Paris before but staying in an apartment was a completely new experience. What a joy to buy butter, eggs, vegetables, and fruits in the Bastille market! Having your own kitchen in Paris really transforms your experience here. The design of the apartment is very efficient, comfortable, and beautiful. I hope to return soon!
We loved the Place des Voges apartment. Our greeter, Loredana was very accomodating and helpful and the apartment was spotless. We are looking forward to our next visit.
PDV was one of 4 Paris apartments we rented in May-July 2011, 2 of which were HIP apartments. The HIP apts. were comfortable and equipped to a high standard. Appliances in both HIP apartments was of a very high standard.But the PDV apartment was a bit short of oven dishes for the excellent stove. Place des Vosges is a personal favorite area for us and very well located for Metro and bus alternatives, with a wide choice of bistros and restaurants and boutique shopping outlets nearby. Note from HiP: Thank you for letting us know that Place des Vosges is short of oven dishes. We will be sure to have more in place for future rentals!
We have really enjoyed our week in your city, Paris, and have been most comfortable in your apartment. Its location is superb and its facilities were just right for us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the apartment. In a perfect spot, closet to everything, and it was lovely being so close to the park. There are so many cafes nearby and the patisserie on the corner is superb! Our thanks to Loredana who gave us a lovely welcome (and surprised me with a beautiful cake on my birthday). The apartment is the perfect spot for a stay in Paris, and I hope we can come back again one day.
We had our usual wonderful time in Paris with beautiful weather! The greeter, Loredana, was wonderful. The property was nice and we couldn't have been more happy with the location. Great place to explore and enjoy. We have appreciated your excellent service and care while helping us plan our trips to Paris.
We loved our apartment,it was lovely and bright, with modern and appliances, and in a fantastic position, close to lots of shops, cafes and transport. We were greeted by the lovely Loridana who made us feel very welcome,showed us how everything worked and made lots of recommendations for cafes, shopping etc. The apartment was very clean, there was plenty of hot water and lots of fluffy white towels. It was a real bonus having a washing machine and clothes dryer. We would stay here again.
We had a lovely time in this apartment! The location is great, and the area is so charming. We had a lovely dinner at Cafe Hugo and drinks in the ares. The apartment is very comfortable. Merci!
April in Paris! Perfect, lovely apartment -quiet with the windows closed. Great shower! Thank you - merci!
Our stay was great, just too short. Our greeter was very nice, we didn't need to contact her, but was nice to know she was available if we needed her.
Great stay! Perfect location and handy to the metro! We feel very taken care of by Haven in Paris. Delightful experience!
Our stay was great! We would definitely rent the apartment for our next stay in Paris. We like to location because of it's proximity to the metro and great restaurants. We liked Roger (our greeter). We found him helpful and very nice.
What a lovely apartment, and of course, great location! Do try the market on Thursday and Sunday, we so enjoyed buying the fresh produce and then putting a meal together ourselves! Thanks to Rodger and Loredana for their friendly help and service.
We had a magnificent stay. The Places des Vosges was picturesque. Having a kitchen was a help and the apartment fit our needs exactly. Merci!
We had an excellent experience with Haven in Paris and highly recommend them to others. Our apartment was outstanding and added to the enjoyment of our visit to Paris.
I really enjoyed my time at the Place des Vosges apartment. I had previously stayed at the Elzevir apartment twice and liked it there as well. As always, my experience with Haven in Paris was an entirely positive one. The greeter, Roger, was a great guy. He was very friendly, and while I didn't need to contact him during my stay, I knew he was available if need be. The property was very clean upon my arrival, and was cleaned once by arrangement during my stay. I didn't see the cleaners so the process was very unobtrusive. Although compact, the apartment had almost everything you could wish for during an extended stay (I was there for 18 days). I appreciated all the clean towels. The dishwasher, washing machine and dryer were all in as new condition, and it makes a real difference to be able to do the occasional load of washing. The bed was comfortable and the temperature of the apartment perfect. The weather in Paris was very temperate for mid-winter which made exploring the area easy and fun. The location was ideal - the 3ème and 4ème arrondisements are hard to beat in my book - and the apartment was a great base for exploring the quartier. I am a great fan of the Vélib bike system and used it most days to get around; people shouldn't be put off from trying it, it is a great way to see more of Paris and get a bit of incidental exercise. The "manual" in the apartment was also useful. I followed some of its tips for shops in the area - principally the boucherie and patisserie, both on rue du Pas de la Mule. Both were good recommendations.
Place des Vosges apartment was wonderfully located in Le Marais, and the apartment itself was perfect. Exactly as pictured and described, the apartment was spotless and the service was impeccable. The greeter, Loredana, was wonderfully helpful and very friendly. Without her services, there could have been some frustrations. Her personal touch made it a magnificent experience. I can attest that there were advantages to being in Paris during a cold week in January. I had complete access to museums with few people!
We thoroughly enjoyed our return to Paris and discovering the charms of the Marais and surrounding areas. The apartment was absolutely perfect for our stay. Warm, comfortable, modern appliances and shower - it truly has been a home away from home. Thank you also for a very comprehensive guide/manual. You have included everything we could have wanted. We would be very happy to recommend Haven in Paris to our friends. We will be sure to use you again for our next stay as well.
Although I prefer to stay in the Champs du Mar area, this was the only apt I could find because we booked late. It was a really nice find though....relatively quiet neighborhood and a very clean apt. The bedroom is small- only a bed can fit but it wasn't a problem for us as we only used it for sleeping. Kitchen and the apt in general, was well equipped. Sleep sofa was extremely confortable-high end type with foam mattress. Easy to open and close. Downside to apt: telephone service and wireless service was spotty. When wireless was down, we could plug the laptop directly with the ethernet cord but it didn't allow me to use my IPAD (with WIFI). Telephone service just didn't work most of the time at night when we wanted to call home. Interior of building (hallways) showed signs of construction. There seemed to be some construction dust and hanging wires. Maybe cable/internet/tv wires, not sure. Smell of restaurant next door permiated the entranceway as you walk in. But, no food smell in the apt. Overall, very nice experience, great little apartment-close to metro stops and shops, food etc. Note from HIP: Due to heavy snows in December, many of the phone and internet service providers throughout Paris experienced some difficulty. The construction in the building is in the finishing stages and should be wrapped up shortly.
Bathrobes were very, very helpful. A few more would be great. Great apartment, great location. The guide was helpful and a comfort.
Lovely accommodations. Immaculately clean and actually prettier than the internet photos convey. Convenient to metro lines leading to major attractions. Loredana was efficient and most accommodating to our needs. Best of all was the warmth of a "home away from home"... a comfortable place to relax after a day of sightseeing. Plus the wonderful opportunity to try ones hand at preparing a meal after shopping the local produce markets.
The Haven in Paris team were so professional in their dealings prior to, during and following my visit to Paris. The Place Des Vosges was divine: my little home away from home. Absolutely delightful apartment and the Marais was totally memorable and will always be a special part of my travels. I leave Paris with very fond memories. Thank you for making my visit so seamless and a special thanks to Loredana (our greeter).
We are extremely happy here and we like the apartment very much, thank you. Whoever planned the design details was very thoughtful. We have rented many Marais apartments over the last 8 years and this one has everything we need. The choice of very quiet washer and excellent appliances is important to us. Loredana was very kind and welcoming when we arrived. We like her very much.
Thank you for a lovely stay! We love the apartment, the neighborhood and the weather. We have been to Paris many times and never stayed in the same places, but we look forward to staying in this apartment again.
We had a very nice stay. thank you. We were very satisfied with the quality of the apartment and the greeter. She was very helpful and friendly. Having the computer was great, and there were lots of guidebooks to look through. The location near Place des Vosges was ideal for our 18 month old.
Paris perfect - what a fantastic time we have had in this, most wonderful of cities. Great apartment, lovely and quiet, great cooling facilities, very comfortable. We hope to return!
I would like to thank you for the services. Since the beginning when I was still in doubt about a hotel or a flat, the team was very patient, answered all my questions quickly and always very friendly. My sisters and I had a wonderful time on the Place des Vosges property. The apartment is a bit small, but very cozy and extremely functional. The beds are very comfortable, the shower is great, the kitchen has everything we needed and the location. Well, just one word: perfect! Nice view from the Place des Vosges, near many nice cafes, restaurants, metros, grocery stores (G20 - near St. Paul metro and Franprix near the Chemin Vert station), bakeries and still quiet enough during the night. The café right in front of it (Café Hugo) is lovely; I ate one of the best duck dishes there! Our greeter, Roger, was great, friendly, funny and helpful, talked about the life in Paris and even a bit about Italy (our next stop). Vincent, the person who cleaned the apartment, was also very friendly and kind, and did an excellent job there.
We had a great time while at the apartment. The Marais district was the perfect place for us to have our home base, we enjoyed the fabulous shopping and eating just blocks away from our place and the convenience of the Metro stations for when we ventured further out into the city. The apartment was cozy, clean and comfortable. Laurence, our greeter, was very helpful in all aspects, it was comforting to know we had a "go-to" person if we had any questions or problems. Thank you again for all your help and for the Place des Vosges apartment. We brought back great memories of our time in Paris, and hope to return sometime in the not-to-distant future...
the property is very well located and loveable, there was just missing an alarm/ clock
We loved our apartment and its perfect location in Place des Vosges. Our HIP hosts were the best, offering suggestions and assistance with everything! We look forward to other holidays using HIP properties as our home away from home. Thank you!
Eva was an absolutely wonderful greeter and helped me get oriented with the apartment and the neighborhood, and I've been walking all over the city seeing the sights - it is so beautiful here. This is a lovely part of the city to stay in, and the apartment comes with great amenities, especially the laptop and telephone services included, maps and guidebooks. Thanks for being so thoughtful to a traveler's needs. It is wonderful to feel like I have a little home away from home, and can cook my own meals and live more as a local than a tourist! The nice extra touches - a bottle of wine, fresh baguette, and fresh flowers really added warmth to my welcome and set your company apart... I will definitely rent from you again.
We had a wonderful time in Paris and really enjoyed our stay in the apartment near Place des Vosges. The location was superb, the apartment well equipped and charming. No unpleasant surprises. Amaury and Flora, our Paris contacts, were charming and helpful.
We had a marvelous stay. The apartment was exactly as pictured and everything worked (we've not had that experience in other European rentals). It was extremely helpful to have someone local to call for help; Amaury (our greeter) was terrific. We also used Andy as a driver to the airport, and would recommend his services. Best of all was the location--we loved being right off the Place des Vosges and spent most of our stay right in the neighborhood.
Three friends and I took a girls trip to Paris in December. We loved everything about this apartment. The four of us fit very happily into the space and we never felt cramped. Both the bathroom and the kitchen was modern, clean and easy to use. Everything was so clean, far beyond anything I have experienced in even the nicest hotels. We came love the view out of our windows (not blocked by the construction going on in the building when we stayed in December) and we spent many happy evenings as "locals" at Cafe Hugo. We felt right at home; safe, comfortable and well cared for by the Paris staff. I can't imagine staying in Paris any other way. Every interaction that I had with the Haven in Paris staff was professional, friendly and kind. Bravi!
We had a great stay in Paris, loved the apartment and its location, and thought your holiday rental organisation was the most thoughtful and professional we've dealt with in many visits to Paris....or anywhere for that matter. Fabulous compendium and local info! Re the apartment - we were really impressed with the quality of the fittings and even the untensils (sharp Cuisinart knives, a waiters friend that worked, and a separate clothes dryer.... yaaayyyyy!!!). The only thing missing (if it could possibly have been squeezed in) was a microwave. But that's all! Our greeter Guillaume was on time, friendly, and helpful...and if we'd had such a greeter on our first trip to Paris many years ago, we would have had a much easier introduction to the city, with its delights and quirks. He gave us some great tips re exhibitions and a few previously undiscovered quiet corners in the neighbourhood, and a bottle of wine from his region. Bravo all around! We'll be contacting you on our next visit, and in other European cities as well, and also recommending your company to friends.
The only problem with the apartment is that I WILL HAVE TO LEAVE IT! It was a wonderful experience and your attention to detail is wonderful. Could stay here forever. Thank you for everything.
Our Place des Vosges apartment was fantastic. We loved pretending we were locals- visiting the local boulangerie, the Bastille market, looking down upon the "tourists" below. The added touches of L'Occitane products and flowers upon arrival were appreciated. The reduced rate offered due to the fire in the building made it great value. The hallway was still in need of renovation but this served to emphasise the contrast when the apartment door was opened and revealed a light modern very comfortable residence.
The apartment was exactly right for a couple. Well appointed, comfortable and attractive. Perhaps its strongest point is the neighborhood. Seventeenth century Place des Vosges is an architectural delight with excellent bistros in the arcades, art galleries on the ground floor and a beautiful park in the square. On the weekend, the park looked like Le Grande Jatte. Looking forward to returning.
We had a wonderful time in Paris and the apartment was perfect for our family of 4. The apartment was very comfortable...both the kitchen and washroom are very well designed and seemed brand new! The sofa bed was very comfortable and everything was super clean. The apartment itself is located in a wonderful part of Paris, right next to Place des Vosges...one of the few places in Paris where you can sit on the grass and relax in a park. It is located close to metro stations, restaurants and tourist sites but far enough from the tourist sites that the apartment felt like a home away from home. We loved it! The owners and mgmt team who greeted us were great and very accommodating. The recent fire in the hallway on the 2nd floor has not been repaired but it did not impact our stay.
The property was in a fantastic position giving a real "feel" of Paris that wasn't full of tourists. The renovation work below wasn't a big problem though they did continue until late in the day on the Friday we were there. We had been informed of this and the discount we had received was more than adequate. The apartment was extremely well equipped and the bathroom being new was great. The company could not be faulted. Everything was explained clearly and we were kept up to date with our booking details and payments. To be met by a local and given details of the apartment and area was very helpful. I have already recommended this company to my friends and would definitely use them again.
The Place des Vosges flat was very comfortable and well appointed, and the location was ideal. I would highly recommend this apartment for a business traveler, or a couple in Paris for a few days. The only qualification I would make is that if the weather is warm, the lack of air conditioner will necessitate keeping the windows open - this can be a problem as there is noise throughout the day and late evening.
We had a wonderful time in Paris, in no small part due to the fantastic base camp that the apartment gave us. We found the appliances in the apartment to be of highest quality, a true strength. The bedding and linens where also really comfortable. The location was charming, with lovely cafes and shops mere steps away... Thanks for all your attention, and thanks to Amaury (our greeter) for his thorough introduction to the workings of the apartment. We really had no trouble with anything, thanks to his attention.
Great apartment; great location.
The apartment is lovely with a wonderful view of the Place de Vosges. There are markets nearby and the fresh bread and pastries on the corner is a must! Also, the Bastille metro is just a few blocks away to connect you quickly to Châtelet, Louvre and Place de la Concorde!
The apartment was just like the photos and accommodated four people just fine. It had everything that we needed and more. The location is right off the square and in a wonderful shopping and dining neighborhood. The bakery next door is fantastic. There was some fire damage in the hallway, but nothing that affected the apartment. We had a relaxing, stress-free trip thanks to Haven in Paris. We highly recommend Andy's taxi service and Haven in Paris to anyone planning a trip to the city.
I really appreciated the ability to work with a US-based company. It's a lot less hassle than dealing with an international entity--especially when it comes to money transactions and basic communication. Our original plans fell through at the last minute and we had less than a week to find lodging in Paris. You were so quick to respond, which made all the difference. The entire process was seamless and worry-free. Loved the well-written instructions, suggestions and tips both before and after we arrived. The fire really had little impact on us. Though the apartment itself was small, it was very well thought out and organized. Loved the location--nothing like walking out the door and into Place Des Vosges! The Mac, the free high speed internet and the free long distance are REALLY appreciated. Overcame the most obvious obstacles when you travel--ability to quickly and easily Skype and call home. And free! This was so much more than an apartment rental. Haven in Paris has obviously put a great deal of thought into providing a welcoming, worry-free, relaxing space. Business SHOULD be about putting oneself in the shoes of the customer, and providing a service that meets those needs. You guys "get it". Thank you.
I was thoroughly impressed with my entire experience. The website is crisp and easy to navigate, including the availability section. The team I worked with to set up the visit made the process very simple and were most responsive. I particularly liked the fact that I could charge the cost of the stay rather than trying to figure out a lot of euros in cash. My arrival at the apartment was challenging because of the street closures on Sundays and that might be something to mention to guests arriving on that day because I underestimated how long it would take to get there. Fortunately Amaury (my greeter) was very accommodating and helped me settle right in. The flowers, wine and loaf of bread were a charming touch. The Place des Vosges apartment is simply lovely and is located in a fabulous part of the city. Everything is within close distance. Incredible restaurants and shops are nearby as well as a particularly fine bakery on the corner of the street. The park in the Places des Vosges is a wonderful feature to have so near too. You had given me a heads-up about the fire so I was prepared for that and not bothered by it, though the damage to the hallways is quite significant. The apartment itself is completely untouched and very well-maintained. Thank you for making my stay in Paris so pleasant and so convenient.
We were greeted by a friendly Parisian who was willing to answer all our questions and be a resource for us throughout our stay. The apartment was comfortable, perfectly located, and clean. We could not imagine staying in a better neighborhood; it was convenient to a major Metro stop, within walking distance of the Opera, shopping, the Seine, and interesting neighborhoods. We were able to relax and enjoy our long vacation in large part because we had such a wonderful place to stay. Some days we didn't even want to leave the apartment or neighborhood.
The apartment was EXACTLY as depicted on your website and in your communications with me. We (my wife and I) were VERY pleased with the apartment and with our experience there. Amaury (our greeter) was great. He was waiting for me on arrival, even though I was a few minutes early. He showed me everything in detail, and (as promised) there were flowers and a baguette waiting for us when we returned later. The first time I tried the combination to the inner door, it did not work. So I called Amaury. He answered immediately, and when I explained my problem, he explained the second character was a B and not an 8. There was some other, very minor issue which I called him about (don't remember now what it was) but he took care of it immediately. So I was very pleased with his availability and help. We became quite fond of the 'cafe crème a porter' from the bar across the street, and we had a very nice dinner at the restaurant in the building next door to the apartment - Bonnes Soeurs? Everything went pretty much like clock work. Thanks again for everything. We had a wonderful stay in the apartment, and look forward to renting through Haven In Paris again in the future.
The Place des Vosges is a perfect place to stay in Paris and in a great location. We were very pleased with the room the internet access and wifi and within walking distance to the metro and lots of cafes and shopping.
How we enjoyed our holiday in this beautiful, immaculate home on wonderful Place des Vosges with trendy boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Truly a home away from home equipped with everything we could possibly need. Thank you!
Spotless, well located and welcoming. Great amenities, in an active neighbourhood setting. Feels like a home away from home at the end of a great day of touring Paris!!
We've been to Paris several times, but our long weekend in the Marais district at your stunning apartment was by far our favorite visit. Was it the amazing location -- in the heart of one of Paris' most charming neighborhoods but slightly off the tourist track? Was it the lovely view and impeccably appointed accommodations? Was it the host of child-friendly amenities (park/playground, outdoor cafe, mini-market, etc.) within one block of the building? We couldn't have asked for more. Many thanks for an unforgettable summer vacation!
We had a wonderful stay! The location is absolutely picture perfect- literally across the street from Place des Vosges. It is walking distance to lots of adorable shops, restaurants and art galleries as well as metro stops. There are also many interesting museums in the vicinity, like the Musée Picasso. On Sundays, one of the biggest and best "farmer's markets" in the city is around the corner, and we would buy lots of cheese, meats and pastries for a picnic in the park. The apartment itself is very clean and modern, with a renovated kitchen and bathroom – a big bonus in Paris! All in all, for the price, I don"t think you can beat the amenities and location. I highly recommend it! Hope to return soon!
