Le Charles V is a beautifully appointed Marais studio located on the quiet rue Charles V, just steps from the charming Village Saint-Paul's art galleries and antique dealers. For location, this can't be beat -- as only two blocks away lies the Seine and the Ile Saint-Louis, Place de la Bastille is just steps away as well as the elegant Place des Vosges. Less than a five-minute walk brings you to the Saint-Paul Métro stop and numerous buses serve the area.

Step outside to a treasure trove in the heart of Le Marais...from savory to sweet. Start at the boulangerie, then move onto the fromagerie. Do as the Parisians do: dine in on gourmet take-out -- perfect roast chicken with potatoes along side. Don't forget to finish up at the patisserie. Want to go out? Discover the Marais' bistros and brasseries just moments from your front door. Along the way, uncover a few of Paris' best kept shopping secrets in the chic boutiques lining the streets.

Protected by two digicode controlled doors at street level, the apartment is located on the 5th (European) floor of the building. The elevator makes for easy coming and going. Three, floor to ceiling east facing windows fill the apartment with beautiful light during the day, as well as offering a lovely view of the surrounding rooftops.

Newly renovated and tastefully decorated, you'll find every amenity provided for. Brand new furnishings and bed make for a relaxed and restful stay. Two large, comfortable armchairs in the living room area allow you to read, watch TV or just relax. The dining table is generous in size and can seat up to three people.

The full kitchen includes a cook top, refrigerator, and microwave/convection oven, as well as a bar with stools for a quick meal. For your added convenience the apartment has its own washer/dryer combo unit.

The bathroom is equipped with a shower, sink and toilet in one well laid out room, which is always stocked with plush fresh towels prior to your arrival.

Designed for the “plugged in” traveler, the apartment has free WiFi Internet, cable TV with over 100 channels, including Sky TV, and free international phone calling to over 90 countries.

We loved the location and how updated and well-appointed the apartment was. Every time we said to each other: "I wonder where...." we then found it - whether that was an additional outlet, the french press coffee, champagne flutes, blankets and more. The St. Paul's village area was new to us, and we just loved being in that area of the Marais - so close to local fruit/vegetable stands, a favorite chocolatier ( Benoit), a favorite boulangerie (Le Moulin de Rosa at 32 Rue de Turenne), the quaint and always engaging Place des Vosges, and nearby schools with the sounds of kids playing in the school yard. We were planning out return on the flight home.

I've stayed at this apartment before it was professionally managed and found the stay to be even better than the last time. It's great to have a concierge there to meet us with the keys and explain everything. The amenities are great: free/fast Wi-Fi, washer/dryer and refrigerator are so nice to have! The apartment is great and an excellent value when you compare it against a hotel stay. it's roomy, homey, comfortable and charming!

We had a fabulous 6 nights in the Charles V apartment - I wish we could have alot more! The apartment was beautifully presented and had everything we needed for our stay. Being met by your host - Barbara - was great and having a number to call if required was very helpful. The location is wonderful, our local shops - fomagerie, boulangerie etc were right at our doorstep. Would definately stay again - sooner rather than later and longer rather than shorter!!

I was extremely happy with Le Charles V apartment! I had never rented an apartment for vacation before so was a little nervous but the check-in/check-out process went smoothly and the studio was thyree times bigger than a hotel room in Paris. The apartment was very clean and well-stocked and the location cannot be beat. You are on the top floor with lots of windows and lots of light (very quiet too) and a handy elevator. The free phone calls and free wireless are a big plus. I would not hesitate to recommend this to anyone (and in fact, already have!) and will definitely be staying there during my next trip to Paris.

The apartment really did exceed our expectations. It was a wonderful place, and we were equally happy with the service. Very easy check in and hassle free check out. Great communication and clarity with all procedures. Our stay was fabulous! This flat is ideally located in the beautiful Marais, conveniently located close to everything one could want in a Parisian adventure. The interior of the apartment was lovely with huge sunny windows, beautiful beams, a great shower, a tidy well-stocked kitchen, and a big comfortable bed.

Exactly as pictured! Perfect for a week's stay -- loved it-- nothing not to like. Best location.

As they say...location, location, location! This quiet Marais apartment is perfectly located for shopping (the twice-weekly Bastille Farmers Market is great fun), restaurants, bus routes, several Métro stations and easy strolls to many of Paris's major sites. The apartment is nicely decorated and luminous in the sunshine. I especially enjoyed being on the 6th floor with wonderful views over the Paris rooftops. Everything worked well including the appliances, internet, plenty of hot water, towels and linens - plus the comfort of knowing that someone at Parler Paris was just a phone call away if anything went sideways. The weekly housekeeper services for longer stays was the frosting on the cake!

We loved our stay at the Charles V. It was very cozy with great heaters and lots of light that was welcome on some chilly, cloudy Paris days. It is in a great location and wonderful neighborhood with great restaurants all around. The Metro access was easy. It was well-equiped and the personal assistance was helpful and comforting.

When we arrived at the Charles V apartment, it looked as lovely as the pictures. Being situated in a prime location, it was beautifully light-filled and had everything we needed. We also felt that we got value for money, as the furnishings were reminiscent of a plush hotel but without the massive cost. Lastly, we really appreciated their compassion when our flight was canceled and they allowed us to leave later in the day than we originally intended to. Thank you
