HELP! Please help me choose an apartment

I'm travelling to Paris in October and thinking of staying in the Marais area. I've narrowed down my choices to 2 apartments. Has anyone dealt with these agencies too?

http://www.vacationinparis.com/apts/id_69.htm

…provaction.com/paris/CARROUSSELuk2.html

The first one is $125 per night and is an American based company so prices are in dollars. Deposits can be made with credit cards.

The 2nd is $126 per night (converted) and is based in France. THey only take bank wire transfers and is more of a hassle, but there seems to be more amenities.

TIA for your help!

Suzanne, we stayed in the 2BR apt #123 called Luxembourg Splendor. I'm not sure about splendor, but it was perfectly clean, comfortable, well-appointed and certainly well situated. And one other point: the washing machine broke when we attempted to use it. A less honest apartment manager could have taken advantage of the situation, but Mr. Luraschi apologized for the inconvenience and not 2 minutes ago I got an email from vacationinparis that my security deposit is in the mail back to me. And I got back on Friday night...I just love doing business with them! Why do you ask?

Happy, We've used vacationinparis 3 times now and like you said ,they are not exactly luxury apartments. We've found them to be clean and comfortable. They have been so easy to deal with that I can't see any reason togo to another agency and deal with wire transfers ect. I was curious about which apartment you had because it is always nice to have something in mind for the future. Thanks for the info.

We found an apartment thru vrbo.com and are dealing directly with Paschal. He has a number of properties around paris. The one we have spoken for is at 24 rue Des Vertus in the 3rd. His website, I believe it is Rentals in France, has testimonials. I have contacted people who used him, and they say he was very easy to work with and followed thru on all that was promised. Now, you can't use a credit card, which I admit, would be great. But, other than that, so far so good for us with paschal.
