Paris Marais Apt question: Should we book?

Hello,

We are thinking of booking this for 1 week in July. Is anybody familiar with the company, apartment or area??

http://www.parisapartmentrental.biz/...tellsinfo.html

Address: 105 RUE BEAUBOURG, 75003 PARIS

Anything we should be aware of?

Thanks,
S

Sure looks good to me, and the location is great. We've stayed around there and loved it. Lots of shops and restaurants, nice urban neighborhood feel and central location with easy public transport links. Price is reasonable, too.

The apartment looks good to me. But I am confused about the location. The first listing says it is on rue Beaubourg and links to a map showing it there, and then inside the description says rue de Bretagne. The second listing says the same conflicting things but has a link to an incorrect map that isn't in Paris.

I agree that the location link is off. Beaubourg is a busy street, is the bedroom in the back or front. Brentage is also a busy stree.
I think everything looks good except the kitchen, if you won't be cooking it shouldn't be an issue.
Sorry, never used this company, or heard about it here.

Thank you all. I also found the listing on tripadvisor and the owner is verified there.

I would be sure to ask the owner whether the apartment is on rue Beaubourg or rue de Bretagne. The description on tripadvisor is the same as the two listings above, mentioning both locations.

Hi Suetibu,

I stayed in this neighborhood (rue de Bretagne) a few years ago and just LOVED it. There are shops, restaurants, a market (Marche des Enfants Rouge), bakeries, and it's away from the tourist din.
