“Nice apartment, but no welcome and not such a nice area.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2012

We were allocated an apartment in a rather rundown apartment block in Rue De Tracy. The apartment was nice but very overlooked, and in an area which did not feel very safe. We did not venture out at night as a result. We could have done with someone to welcome us and show us about, but all we got was a complex set of instructions sent by email to enable us to collect the key (from a safe) and the apartment address. Not recommended.

Stayed in a two bedroom apartment facing street,
Entering the complex was via a code and we were lucky enough that a guest let us in, but we still ahd to ring to find out how to access our apartment. Office quickly organised for cleaner to great us as we were early for check in and she set off to make up our room and gave us a time to come back. Nice impression upon entering apartment.

Bad
As there was 3 of us, there was 2 double or queen bed but other person had to sleep on a fold out bed.
Shower floor tiles, there were too many missing mosiac tiles to count. Pretty poor.
Wireless connection - wasn't working. called office to fix. Next arfternoon when we returned still not working, sorry you 'll ahve to wait till Monday for a tech. Not good enough in my standards as it was a business trip. Over the w/end as we were desperate for net, I knocked on another apartment and asked for their wireless code, they were very gracious short term residents who gave us access. Something the office should have thought of for us.
Street noise is very loud even with shutters closed, lucky it wasn't hot. Still recommend ear plugs if you get a street facing room.
Random bag of stuff for us. Biscuits etc. but one random loos tea bag.

Good - location, clean and spacious apartment.

Make sure you visit Claude across the street at "Le Comptior Terrior" (bottleshop) He made our stay. Visited him one day for some Champagne, tapenades, terrines and mini toasts. From then on every day we were greated with a friendly smile every time we passed. He also was kind enough to take a package that I needed picked up after I left Paris. If you do visit tell him Toni from Australia say hi.

We booked Bridgestreet Marais through The Apartment Service in the UK. Their booking service was excellent, and Bridegestreet instructions to access the apartment was precise. A cot and high-chair was requested, and was in the apartment on arrival. Bridgestreet Marais is excellently situated and although on a busy street, the traffic noise was dulled by closing the windows and switching on the airconditioner which is free-standing, but efficient. Our two-bedroom apartment was situated on the first floor and had been recently renovated (my sister and her family booked the same week, and were disappointed as their apartment had not been renovated). Our rooms were airy and spacious with plenty of cupboards and the kitchen adequately equipped. The bathroom had been renovated, pity that they hadn't retiled the shower as the tiles are old and grubby. Overall good value for a family vacation.

We booked and paid well in advance to stay in an apartment at the Bridge Street Marais but instead ended up at Monparnasse without any warning, consultation with us, our travel agent or the provider. We were advised by way of a note in the lobby at the Marais address. Bridge Street offered to reimburse us for the taxi fare for the inconvenience. For us, it was not just about the inconvenience it was the fact that we were not provided with what we had booked and paid for. We spent a week of our once in a life time holiday in a location of Paris we did not choose, had not planned to visit and is not highly rated as a tourist destination. The service from Bridge Street was unsatisfactory. When we were finally able to make contact with them they were not interested and never got back to us. We had prepaid so they had nothing to lose. I would not take the RISK of booking any accommodation with Bridge Street as I get the impression they make these kind of changes regularly.

We booked this apartment as we like the Marais district but as we were staying 10 days with a friend we needed a self catering apartment.

We had a two room apartment, both rooms were doubles, with good wardrobes, high ceilings and lots of light.
No airconditioning, you can open the windows but the street noise if you did so was quite loud. No problem with the windows shut.

Apartment was very clean, with a dishwasher, washing machine and dryer, and free internet. Very close (across the road) to a supermarket.

Would recommend if you are looking for an independent stay at a reasonably central location.

Well i would like to write a review but 24hrs before we were due impairs we received an email saying our apartment was no longer available and we were booked to stay at their other property at champ de elysee. This totally did not suit due to our short stay and travel plans, we didn't want to spend half our time in Paris on the metro and in cabs.
Soooooo in short with 24hrs to go i was left with no hotel and mad rush to find a suitable apartment (we had a baby so did not want a hotel) in a busy Paris. Really really angry.
Anyway we stayed at a citadines Les Halles which was not glamourous but perfectly suited to our needs. Also it was cheaper.

Hmmmmm I don't think i will book a bridge street again!
