“Awesome location in a beautiful city”
Reviewed July 30, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We loved staying at Le Secret du Bastille. The apartment was comfortable and the location was great! We loved the convenience of the area and location close to the metro, making it easy to travel anywhere in the city. We did use our river cruise tickets, which we enjoyed! We certainly hope to return to Paris in the future and will definitely be staying with Cobblestone again.

“Fantastic experience!”
Reviewed May 20, 2018 for a stay in March 2018

We LOVED our Cobblestone apartment Le Secret du Bastille. We loved the location - it was less touristy and more of a neighborhood, which is what we preferred. Metro was steps away. Our greeter David was so knowledgable and gave us a ton of tips which improved our stay. Overall, the apartment and Cobblestone were perfect.

“A great apartment in a lively and interesting area”
Reviewed November 19, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

The apartment was very comfortable and well-equipped with a washer/dryer, full kitchen and wi-fi. The bed was comfortable. The apartment is located in a very lively and interesting area, and is close to a metro station. Despite this it was surprisingly quiet, since it overlooked a small interior courtyard. Nearby are shops for groceries, cafes and the Bastille market. The location is very central: a short walk to the Marais, the Left Bank, and the islands. Cobblestone was professional and easy to deal with. My Greeter, David, was very helpful. I very much enjoyed my stay in Le Secret du Bastille.

“'Bustling Bastille'”
Reviewed June 22, 2017 for a stay in June 2017
1
person found this review helpful

This apartment is right amongst the action of the busy Bastille area. Surprisingly however it is very quiet as it is set back off the road. The apartment is very secure with reasonable access if you have large/heavy luggage (the stairs are a little tricky as they are narrow and slippery). Overall the apartment was clean and tidy but it is a bit 'petite' if you are looking at using the sofa as a bed. The welcome bottle of wine and chocolate was a nice touch and our greeter was friendly and helpful. The complimentary Seine cruise was also very enjoyable. If you are familiar with the Paris metro system the Bastille station is only minutes away and there are plenty of places to eat and drink as well as a nearby supermarket.

“Great apartment in an area I call "iffy"”
Reviewed October 9, 2016 for a stay in September 2016

Le Secret du Bastille is a fine, secure apartment in a good building, set back off a busy street. It is quiet and charmingly decorated, with more than adequate amenities for a stay of several days to weeks. The kitchen was well equipped for meal prep for two, bed was comfortable, everything was clean and tidy. The downside is the 37 winding and uneven stairs required to get to the door of the unit....good exercise but tough with luggage, groceries, etc. Outside the main entrance to the building are many bars and cafes, much foot and car traffic (well, it is Paris, I guess), but after seeing other parts of town (St. Germain, Ile St. Louis), I would not choose to stay near the Bastille again. It is a good location for walking to Le Marais and for visiting the great street market on Rue Richard Lenoir, so depending on your interest (and possibly your age), choose accordingly. Cobblestone, the company who owns and books these apartments, was excellent in communication; however, because we were late in arriving to meet our greeter, David, we had to wait, with too much luggage, on the street and then in the bar across from the building, which was a very uncomfortable way to start the Paris part of our trip. Also, we did not receive our "free" Seine river cruise voucher, unfortunately.

Thank you for your review. I respectfully disagree that the neighborhood is "iffy", it is a vibrant part of town, so many guests will love this aspect of it. If you want restaurants, cafes, groceries, farmers market, boutiques etc at your doorstep, then this is the place for you. The other locations you mentioned are much more expensive, luxurious areas of Paris, keep in mind. They offer high end dining, and shopping, which many people find inaccessible and not as authentic. They are more quiet but you will have to walk alot further to find groceries, metro, farmers markets etc. The Bastille is a very local neighborhood, for those who wish to experience the Parisians Paris and enjoy the benefits of being surrounded by locals, yet still in the heart of Paris.
