Welcome to a typical Parisian studio, a simple self-contained private attic space for up to 3 guests. This studio is a very basic and compact studio on the 5th floor of a historic building. It has 2 small ceiling windows to allow light to reach the depths of the dark Paris attic spaces, and an energetic adequate amount of light is enjoyed. The draw-card of such a basic studio is the price, the location - right in the heart of the sought after Marais - and the functional living / practical aspects with a basic kitchenette (workbench) with cooking utensils, stovetop, sink, small fridge, kettle, small shower and toilet, single bed on the mezzanine (with ladder access) and double bed. We recommend this studio for physically able persons and those on a budget.

There is a lovely boulangerie in front of the building for morning fresh croissants and baguettes as well as convenient grocery stores.
