Guest houses

- In Marais : Domingoroom

Domingo room Domingo room

Great welcome and atmosphere. Jean-Paul and Domingo bend over backwards to give you a pleasant stay.
Prefer staying in Beaubourg (owner 's flat), or choose Marais option if you want to be independent (but it's cramped and not functional).

Xmas 2011 : Wishing coming back, I booked up 4 nights asking for Beaubourg option. All was fine (deposit paid) except that 3 weeks later Domingo layed down Marais option because another guest wished Beaubourg option for a longer stay than mine.
All the more so since Xmas 2010, I stayed 10 days in Beaubourg and Marais.

In Sentier : Renaudroom
