“Wonderful apartment in a nice part of Paris”
Reviewed 27 January 2016 for a stay in January 2016

person found this review helpful

We stayed from the 14th Jan until Jan 24th, everything was very smooth all the way through our check-in, stay and check-out. We got a tour through the house and a thorough explanation of how all the appliance and heating worked which was very helpful. We all felt at home during our stay and during the odd times where we were all in the apartment we felt very relax and able to find a comfortable spot, the reading/day bed area was a favorite and hotly contested area to see who would get it first lol. The house has everything you need and more and is located close to a supermarket and many eateries close-by. The stairs may be an issue for very young children but my 2 at age 9 and 10 certainly had no issues with them. If staying here i would strongly recommend walking around the local area as there is much to see very close by including museums, circus and parks. The metro/subway is also not far away and allows you to access everywhere else in Paris very easily and quickly, We bought a ticket for our whole stay which allowed us to hop on and of the subway as we pleased. We saw the security deposit as a blessing as i think its the first time we have come home after 6 weeks holiday with a wallet full of money, and the fact you can use your own local currency save a lot of exchange fees.

The simplest thing to say is that the next time we come to Paris I will not have to look through the many apartments that are available because we would have no hesitation in coming back to this one.

“Great location, good space for family vacation”
Reviewed 13 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Other reviewers have covered most of what I would say about 84 Rue des Archive. The location is wonderful. There is a great cafe on the corner right next to a Franprix grocery that we visited many times. The WIFI worked fabulously. Easy to Facetime anywhere. It was extremely hot during our week (103 one day!) and the owner Carlos brought us fans. Somehow the bedrooms were still comfortable at night. Our bathroom (the master) on the 2nd floor was fine, but my daughter and her friend on the 3rd floor had trouble with the water temp for their shower. I think it is difficult in the old buildings of Europe. That aside, the town house worked well for us. Thomas' check in and out was very smooth. Yes, it would be better to be able to charge on a credit card, but I guess cash keeps the price down. It would also be a saving to be able to go around a management company that added greatly to the bill. It is not very close to a metro stop, but we used Uber, which works wonderfully in Paris.

“Great Location, Cozy Apartment, Easy Rental”
Reviewed 5 July 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We stayed here in April with our children (ages 24, 12, 10) and our au pair. Plenty of room of everyone. Everything we needed was a quick walk. Check in/Check out was a breeze. Cozy and comfortable. Apartment was exactly as described.

“Great for families and large groups”
Reviewed 8 April 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed in this cozy little three story apartment/house for a week as a celebration of my parents' 25th anniversary. We were seven persons in this apartment and it met our needs fully without ever feeling cramped - I assume this is due to the three stories.

As others have already said, the location is the best. It is located in the Marais with a lot of small shops and restaurants nearby. Furthermore, there are only 10-15 minutes walk to Notre Dame and 5 minutes walk to metro Temple or Republique.

The apartment had three bedrooms. Two were located on the second floor and one on the first floor. Furthermore, the first floor had a sofa/bed for one person. The ground floor comprises of a living rooom with a sofa bed and a kitchen with stove, dishwasher, refrigerator and washing/drying machine. The kitchen was really great as it enabled us to eat breakfast and dinner at home - although dinner was usually had at restaurants :-)

There were two bathrooms in the apartment, and they were essentially what we liked the least about the stay. First of all, having no locks on bathroom doors is very inconvenient when you share it with six people. We came up with a workaround where we put a hanger on the door knob, when someone was using the bathroom. This was a little harder on the first floor, as the bathroom door was not even able to be closed. Here we used a string to attach the door to something inside the bathroom so it stayed shut.

Furthermore, on the second floor, the piece that holds the shower head up was broken and the water pressure was almost nonexistent when the downstairs shower was being used at the same time as the upstairs shower. In another review, I read the manager promised to fix this in Oct. 2014 - unfortunately, it has not yet been fixed.

Another small inconvenience is that bank cheques and travellers cheques are discontinued in my home country so I had to bring both rent and deposit in cash. However, both Marie and Carlos had told me this upfront – so no surprise :-) I would much rather have paid ahead with credit card, though.

Anyway, the bathrooms and payment process were minors. The overall experience of staying in the apartment was great and I do very much recommend this apartment to families and larger groups (without small children).

Both Marie from PBIT and Carlos the apartment manager were really helpful during the booking process. The key pickup was handled by Thomas, who gave a good and thorough tour of the apartment. We checked in at about 8pm which was accepted at an extra fee of 50€.

“Great stay in Marais”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

people found this review helpful

This was a really excellent trip and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment. This was a roomy 3 bedroom apartment with a living area to gather in. The location could not have been more perfect, in a very quiet neighborhood in Marais with access to all kinds of food shops: grocery markets, patisserie, butcher shops, etc. Close to several metro stops and walking distance to the great neighborhood of Pompidou. Notre Dame is about a 10-15 minute walk.

The property was spotless / clean. Kitchen is small but well equipped with all major appliances, including coffee maker, dishwasher and clothes washing machine.

There is access to the apartment through a beautiful courtyard and you need a code to get in the courtyard so we felt very safe.

I do not recommend this property for young children because there is a winding staircase without guards. I fell a few steps one morning. This is surely not safe for young ones. The only other problem is the shower on the 3rd level - it is almost unusable due to the water pressure and the broken piece that holds the shower head up. The manager was gracious when offered this feedback and said he would fix it.

I highly recommend the property for adults that are friends / family that want to stay together. It is an excellent alternative to a hotel.

Carlos and Thomas manage the property and they were very friendly and attentive. I hope to return one day. Thanks so much for a lovely Parisian visit!
