Le Marais

 

Every time we visit Paris we stay in a different arrondissement (neighbourhood) and last summer it was the Marais. Once the aristocratic district of Paris it spreads across parts of the 3rd and 4th arrondissement on the right bank of the Seine. It’s now one of the main localities for art galleries, trendy restaurants, fashion houses and also known as the Jewish, Chinese and LGBT area of Paris. I would rather spend my money on fashion then big fancy hotels and if you’re not renting an apartment then the 1 ER Etage hits the spot. Enter through a small door off the street and you will find yourself climbing a winding staircase ( this is why you only pack carry on) and come upon the front door. You will be given a code to enter both the front door as well as your room. This location offers five rooms with all the charm of a Paris apartment and includes breakfast served in the sitting area.
