Stepping into this gem of an apartment, one is instantly impressed by the artistic mix of colors which harmonise perfectly to create a feeling of comfort and warmth. The beautifully appointed living room, with furnishings in beige, creams and browns, is spacious and comfortable with two full-length French windows overlooking the charming Rue des Rosiers and giving immense light to the room.
Two large sofas and a comfortable armchair seat up to six people and a large desk provides an ideal space for work. The kitchen is open and built into a large recess next to the dining area. Spacious and fully equipped, it is a pure delight to cook in!
The two bedrooms are roughly equal in terms of size and comfort, one with a king size bed and one with a queen. Both bedrooms are complete with ample storage space, decorated in warm tones of beiges and creams with the odd splash of red, and have high quality en suite bathrooms.

“I found this company on the internet and was thrilled with everything from start to finish. What they published on their web site was exactly what you received. The general info given was easy to understand and very informative. It gave you a sense of the full package right up front to help you make a good decision. Everyone we came in contact with via email was prompt and professional. When we arrived at the apartment we were greeted with an excellent representative of your company (Richard) who told us everything we needed to know. Also loved the full \"how to\" book that was in the apartment in case we had additional questions and the wine and fruit welcome was perfect coming in from a long day of travel.”
“We had been travelling around France for 4 weeks and to arrive and find a warm, light filled apartment with lots of books, paintings and modern decor made us feel completely at home. The washing machine was great too! Treats from the boulongerie and a bottle of wine from around the corner made life very pleasant. The bed was very comfortable and we slept well. We took lots of pictures to show our friends and we look forward to our next visit.”
“Our stay in the Marais Excellence apartment was just that, excellence. My family of four including two adult children (26 and 28) were very comfortable there. Conveniently located and a short walk to all that Paris has to offer, you'll find restaurants right outside your door, along with an amazing bakery that tempts you with the aroma of fresh bread every morning. The Marais is a lively community with great boutiques, museums and fabulous spots to eat and people watch. The booking process and communication were superb and I do not hesitate in recommending this apartment and Ala Carte Paris. Thank you for making this an unforgettable family vacation. ”
“When we planned our trip to Paris I wanted my children to experience the life of Parisian's. So I started to look for an apartment. What I found didn’t meet my needs. Until I accidentally run into A La Carte Paris. I loved the idea that it was in the Marias neighborhood connected to all forms of transportation and walking distance to a lot of things. The apartment was clean well distributed, equipped kitchen, dishwasher, washer, dryer, wi-fi. With the excellent decorations and furniture we felt at home. My daughter love the idea of going downstairs and buy a nutella crepe. The management team did a great job responding to all of our needs first with the booking process and then while we stayed at the apartment. I have already recommend 3 of my friends to look into your website and will continue to do so!
“The Marais Excellence apartment was perfect for our family of four. We were able to enjoy the beautiful neighborhood and wonderful restaurants - daily visits for morning croissants at the bakery downstairs and a couple meals are Cafe Marianne - as well as easily walk/boat/metro to many of the wonderful sites in Paris. Perhaps our favorite outing was to the pétanque court on the river. The apartment is beautifully appointed and well stocked for our purposes. We did not cook, but made coffee and small breakfasts in the morning. The instruction manual was very helpful for operating equipment in the apartment and learning about the surrounding areas. We were very happy with A La Carte Paris and would rent from them again.
“We loved our apartment in the Marais area. Good food and sights nearby. The street was lively but not too noisy at night. The apartment was clean and spacious.”
“The apartment was exactly as pictured - very spacious and clean. We also arranged transportation from the airport upon arrival and back again at the end of our trip, which went very smoothly.
The Rue de Rosiers is a very lively street with restaurants, bakeries, clothing shops, and pedestrians, but it is not overly noisy and we were able to sleep peacefully each night. We had several nice meals at restaurants in the immediate area and our teenagers enjoyed shopping, especially at a number of fun vintage clothing stores and other spots at friendly price points for young people. It was easy to walk to the bus stop or metro and many sites of central historic Paris such as Notre Dame are in easy walking distance. We would definitely stay in this area again!
There are two bathrooms with nice spacious showers. The beds were comfortable and there was plenty of drawer and closet space to store our things.”
“We had a wonderful trip at the Marais Excellence apartment! It was bigger then we expected, with plenty of room for relaxing and enjoying ourselves. Everything was very clean and well appointed. The service from A La Carte was excellent, and we were very happy!”
“The apartment on Rue des Rosiers exceeded our expectations! It was exactly as pictured online and we were pleased with how comfortable and well laid out the apartment was. Our visit spanned an entire month with family members rotating through and while it would have been ideal to have separate toilets in each of the bathrooms, we made the single toilet work. The cobblestone street is charming and very well positioned in the hub of activity in Le Marais. Very convenient to boutiques, restaurants and the Seine, it proved to be the perfect spot to be located. We found the staff at A La Carte Paris to be extremely accommodating and would absolutely consider arranging through them in the future. Thank you!!”
“This Marais apartment was perfect! It was clean, inviting and comfortable during our stay. The location is in the heart of Marais -- steps from great cafes and shopping. You will be awakened every morning from the wonderful smell of baking croissants wafting up from the Boulangerie downstairs. A wonderful Parisian experience. Highly recommend.”
“This apartment was perfect for our family of 5. Bigger than I expected. Safe. Great location. Spotless apartment with everything you need. Very comfortable and warm. I would definitely stay here again. Communication from the company itself was fantastic, even checking up whilst we were there to make sure everything was ok.”
“Nice apartment in an interesting neighborhood. A comprehensive binder on the kitchen table had all the info we needed about the apartment plus tips about getting around Paris. The apartment is comfortable. The kitchen is new and clean. The washer and dryer worked well. Thank you!”
“Our family of five loved the 2 bedroom apartment we booked through A La Carte Paris on rue de Rosiers. It was charmingly furnished and contained all of the comforts of home. The location was fantastic, we were surrounded by excellent places to eat and shop and it was only a short walk to metro stations. Katy from the Bookings team was a delight to deal with and always responded promptly to emails. I would not hesitate to use A La Carte Paris again and would happily recommend this company to others. Thank you very much for making our stay in Paris such a wonderful one!”
“This apartment was great for our vacation and in a wonderful location in Paris. The apartment was quaint, spacious and well appointed. We also appreciated the fact that noise was minimal. Wonderful old building in the center of a great street with amazing shops, bistros and restaurants. Easy walk to the major sites of Paris.”
“This apartment was top notch. It was located on a wonderful street in the heart of the Marais and was easy to get to from the Metro. The booker was great in preparing us before arrival and was very helpful once we arrived. She even alerted us of the train strikes and offered to set up a cab for us (so helpful!). The inside of the apartment is tasteful and comfortable. The beds were great and the appartment was clean upon our arrival. They left us a book with suggestions of restaurants around us and places to shop. It was fun at night to be able to open the windows and hear the hustle and bustle of this lively section of Paris. It was also wonderful that once you shut the windows it was quiet and easy to fall asleep. This apartment is perfect for a family or friends and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I plan to book this apartment again when I return to Paris!”
“The apartment is absolutely great and we really enjoyed our time in Paris. I was travelling with my boyfriend and my parents. First let me say, the neighborhood was AWESOME- so many food and shopping options right outside the door. The bathrooms were great, everything was very clean and even though we showed up a bit early, it wasn't a problem. Overall, I would recommend this lovely place! Thanks for all your help Katy and Gemma!”
“Exactly as pictured in the listing. It was spacious, clean and well-appointed. Finding an apartment in Paris with two bedrooms AND two showers is a real challenge so we were thrilled that this home had a shower adjoined to each of the rooms. Beds were comfortable, with good linens. The kitchen's sufficiently equipped for you to cook meals though we only used it to make coffee/tea. The apartment was well-stocked and we appreciated all the practical amenities available after having been on the road for a few weeks, for e.g. drying racks, iron, etc. Finally, I must say the LOCATION IS PERFECTION. Marais is a fantastic neighborhood full of charming cobblestone alleys lined with chic boutiques, and the apartment is right above a bakery where we bought croissants for breakfast every morning. St Paul's Metro is a 5-minute stroll away but you can reach a lot of the major attractions on foot easily. Host was super prompt, responsive and helpful. Overall, a great experience - I will definitely be back.”
“My two daughters and I returned from a 10 night stay in the Marais apartment, Marais Excellence. The location was perfect and the apartment was very, very nice. This was our longest mother/daughter's trip and it could not have gone more perfect. Driver we arranged through A La Carte awaited us at Charle de Gaulle Airport. Our apartment was on the 3rd floor with no elevator so we were thrilled when our driver delivered our luggage to our room. The apartment was very clean, nicely appointed and spacious. A note, bottle of wine and box of chocolates were on the dining table. A nice welcome after a 10 hour flight. The beds were extremely comfortable and rooms faced inside the courtyard so were quiet at night. The Marais is a very fun area with plenty of boutiques, restaurants, coffee shops and bakeries. The most beautiful square, Place des Vosges, is only a short walk. A beautiful place just to sit. Highly recommend the apartment and location.”
“I would like to thank you for all that you did to ensure that our stay at at Marais Excellence was indeed excellent! The apartment exceeded our expectations. It was supremely clean and comfortable. We appreciated our bottle of wine and chocolates. The driver who picked us up from the airport was most helpful - thank you for organising the transfer. Although it may appear trivial, as travellers , we were grateful for the detergent for the machine and of course the umbrellas.
We do hope, one day to return to Paris and most certainly would not only use but highly recommend A La Carte Paris.”
“The 2 bedroom apartment is very well located, close to the best sight seeing attractions in Paris, cafes, restaurants, transport & the best of Parisian life.
The 2 bedroom apartment is comfortable,roomy with natural light filtering through.
The rental agency is available at all times & only too willing to assist in any way that you require.
I would recommend this stay for a family of 4 or 2 couples.
Take care Ms. Katy until our next stay in one of the most enjoyable cities in the world to visit & experience.”
“A beautiful apartment with everything you need right outside your door. The location gives you a sense of being in a neighborhood, a place you will feel is your home. Pictures are accurate and the team at A La Carte Paris were very responsive and accommodating. Loved the apartment and A La Carte Paris.”
“Our stay at Marais Exellence was truly an unforgettable experience. The apartment, with its wooden beams, was so charming and chic. It was perfectly located with bakeries, cheese and wine shops close by as well as easy convenience to the metro and taxi stands. The staff at A la Carte were very professional, responsive and helpful. I have been to Paris multiple times but the stay at this apartment made me feel as tho I were a Parisian.”
“I have been flying to Paris as a airline crew member for over 25 years, and continue to be amazed and marveled by the magic and wonder of Paris every time I am there (which is weekly). On vacation, I like to experience everyday life in a local apartment in the city with my family. The apartment at the Marais was absolutely superb. Its location in one of the most exciting sectors of the district is only the beginning; proximity to everything, security of the building, overall comfort, and whimsical ambiance sum it up. We loved feeling and living the vibe of the Marais and being able to move about Paris as the locals do. Great bakeries, restaurants and shops everywhere; sounds, smells and sights evoked Parisian sentiment and style. The apartment itself was very spacious, clean and well-equipped; an absolute joy for relaxing after a day of much activity and excitement. We loved it all!”
“'We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Marais Excellence. The location is really perfect if you want to experience the real Paris and live amongst the locals. The apartment was very clean and well furnished for our purposes. We thought the bottle of wine and chocolates left for us was a really thoughtful and a lovely touch and the material left for us explaining about the apartment was most helpful. The actual location and condition of the apartment was great though.'”
“My Mom and I had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful gem of an apartment for a recent 10 day visit to Paris. Our entire experience was pretty much perfect, from the time we were met at Charles de Gaulle Airport and taken to our apartment, to the moment we walked in to find that it was even larger and better than we had imagined. We had arrived quite early for check-in, but it didn't present a problem. We were met by Jean Eric, who took us on a complete tour of the apartment (it really is big, especially for a Paris apartment!), while Julio finished cleaning the apartment, getting it perfectly ready for us. Jean Eric went through everything with us, the dishwasher, the clothes washer and dryer, television and telephone, internet, etc. he even got out two champagne flutes for the bottle of Brut they had for us in the full-sized refrigerator. We were also treated to a beautiful box of chocolates. Thank you Katy! Everything we needed was there, from soaps, detergents and softeners to dishes, cutlery, and big, soft towels. The bed linens were top quality, like you find a luxury hotel. We encountered an issue with our television and phone on about our 3rd day there, phoned A La Carte, and Jean Eric was there to deal with it right away! We were so impressed, he was so sweet and helpful. The problem was actually to do with the old city of Paris, very understandable. Jean Eric was immediately in touch with them and the problem was resolved the very next day. A La Carte Paris also arranged for our pick-up on the day we left with their car service. Yanik arrived, took our bags downstairs for us, and along the way to the airport, gave us a wonderful guided tour of parts of Paris we had never visited. It was a wonderful way to end a wonderful trip! Oh, and I must mention, the Marais Excellence apartment is in an absolutely perfect location. Prior to this trip I had stayed near the Eiffel Tower, and in the St. Germaine area, so the Marais gave a whole new perspective to the city, and it was wonderful!”
“Just wanted to let you know that our week in the Marais Excellence was fantastic. The location couldn't have been better and the apartment was superb – the single, very small toilet was a bit of a concern, but luckily we are all a reasonable size and close friends so it wasn't too much of a problem. Also the taxis you booked for us were on time and effective (they certainly know their way around Paris at speed!) which was great.”
“If there's a doorstep to the best of Paris, this is it. Our week in the Marais Excellence apartment was fabulous for so many reasons -- great location, clean and spacious rooms, terrific communication before our arrival. Plus any questions we had were answered in the information booklet in the apartment. They thought of everything! We only had one reason to call A La Carte Paris while we were there because we needed a ride to the airport. We called and within five minutes their driver called us back. He arrived to pick us up right on time the next day. Everything went so smoothly. The entire process -- booking, payment, accuracy of description -- exceeded our expectations. We definitely would book again through A La Carte Paris. And, hey, this apartment is above a wonderful bakery. What more can we say!”
“We have returned to Sydney following our stay if France. Thanks again for assisting us with the Marais Excellence apartment. This is the third booking we have made with alacarteparis over the past 2 years. Each time has been a pleasure and the standard of apartments always good. Thanks again for your great service and we continue to recommend alacarteparis to our friends and colleagues.”
“The Marais Excellence apartment was everything we had dreamed of! Beautifully decorated, wonderfully comfy beds and all the little extras, like laundry and bath soaps and condiments AND a bowl of fresh fruit! The location also led to many 'new to us' Paris experiences, like exploring the Jewish quarter, enjoying the Kosher bakeries, trying all the local wine bars and bistros - and the best part - cruising the Saint Martin Canal! It's a must-do excursion, especially when it's warm and sunny! Loved every minute of the trip!”
“We had a great stay in the Marais Excellence apartment! We loved the location & the neigborhood. A la carte provided everything as promised & we found the company very helpful easy to work with (from the first inquiry emails to the check-out). The information book was very helpful for orienting ourselves & locating nearby grocery stores. We tried a couple of the recommended restaurants and they were both very good. An added bonus to this location is the bakery downstairs in the building--a great place to pick-up a quick breakfast or baguette to go with dinner. We took full advantage of the kitchen & laundry, and just found the whole apartment to be very comfortable. There were 4 of us (2 couples), and the apartment accommodated all of us very easily--with plenty of room. The beds are super comfortable :) - Thanks so much for your great service! It helped made our stay in Paris unforgettable!”
