Bed & Breakfast

A secluded little courtyard flat with a friendly host. Lots of tips for city outings - homemade cake and delicious breakfasts too


1 room


Rooms sleep 2


A gem of a pied-à-terre for two, right in the middle of old Paris. Step through the secluded cobbled courtyard to this ground-floor flat; the door opens into the small, uncluttered bedroom with a book-filled living room beyond. Find a joyful yellow bedcover matching a copy of Monet’s ‘La rue Montorgueil’, a snazzy bathroom and a corner kitchen for preparing your own meals after Martinn’s welcoming breakfast; all is beautifully decorated. The neighbourhood teems with busy brasseries, pavement cafés, fashionable shops; easy stroll to Pompidou centre, Louvre, the Marais. Martinn is charming, and eager to share Paris with you.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this charming flat, Marais district and Martinn’s warm welcome to the neighbourhood. We loved the well appointed kitchen, the queen sized bed, appliances, and lovely breakfast that Martinn prepared to welcome us. Rue Montegeuill, with its patisseries and fromageri, is a real gem. Key2Paris was an oasis to return to each night without throngs of tourists. Martinn has curated an immensely enjoyable experience; she is a warm and passionate lady who took time to check in and assist and generously share her knowledge of her city and local gastronomy. Recommended!

Connie, Edmonton

We can only reiterate what other discerning guests have said about Martinn and staying at wonderful rue d'Argout. We cannot speak highly enough of Martinn's graciousness, generosity, attention to detail, and genuine desire to ensure that her guests get the absolute most out of their stay in Paris. Since the moment of the first inquiry, Martinn was a treasure to deal with and from that initial exchange a friendship grew that far surpasses a regular host/guest experience. We heartily recommend staying at Key2Paris and experiencing Martinn's heartfelt hospitality and authentic neighbourhood.

We have stayed in Paris three previous times, and this is be far the best place ever!! Spotlessly clean, perfect location, quiet, convenient to everything and best of all, Martinn (the owner) is the most wonderful host ever!! She is very professional, kind, helpful, full of information, as she has lived in this area most of her life, and always available if you need her. She is also an excellent, gourmet cook, so I highly recommend purchasing her dinner option!! A real treasure, indeed!!

Dan, Wetumpka

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Our host was fantastic and showed us all the best places to go, answered questions and was very warm and welcoming. The apartment is in a fantastic section of Paris - all of the main attractions are walking distance, but the apartment itself is on a section of streets closed off to traffic and is full of wonderful shops and cafes. There is a mix of natives and tourists in the area and provides a true Paris experience. It was so convenient to just walk out of our door and see where our feet led us that we never had dinner more than a half mile from the apartm

Absolutely the perfect Paris location, a nice neighborhood with lots of shops and cafes, but just a few blocks away from the Louvre area. At the back of the building's courtyard, this sweet little hideaway for 2 is so quiet & calm in the midst of the city. The kitchen is very well equipped, and comes with start up breakfast. Martinn is a treasure; a native Parisian who can help plan special interest tours with lots of "insider" information. Martinn has many years of experience in hosting travelers, her genuine warmth & interest in her customers is a real treat. We can't wait to go back!

Location, location, location. Couldn't ask for a better location. Quiet at night, yet within walking distance of much of central Paris, several Metro stations and Ile de Cite.

Brenda, Melbourne

On Rue'Dargout, in the heart of the 2nd arrondissement hidden behind courtyard doors is a most special apartment.❣️ We loved our stay there so much we have visited three years in a row and hope to return as soon as time allows. Martinn is an exceptional host and I am so happy to say now our dear friend. Her attention to detail,her knowledge of Paris and current exhibitions, her genuine desire to make her guests holiday special is reflected in all she prepares to welcome you. I truly feel at home in this retreat. Paris awaits you in all its splendour and quiet comfort awaits you at keys2paris

Win, Toronto

My hostess Martinn was a gem. She was very welcoming and friendly. I accepted her offer of the dinner which was excellent. She leaves you with a breakfast that lasts a few days (delicious home made jams). The apartment couldn't be better situated. Very close to Metro stations and buses. You are 5 minutes from rue Montorgueil for fabulous food shopping, and cafes. Walking distance to the Louvre. Musee d'Orsay and l'Oranagerie is a pleasant walk from the apartment. The apartment has all the amenities you will need for your stay and it is also very quiet which you will appreciate after a long day

Carol, Burnaby, british columbia

Had a great time, apartment is beautiful. Awesome location, so close to everything. Highl recommended.

Fiona, Melbourne

We had a wonderful stay at Martinn's the apartment was fully self contained, clean & a fabulous central location for attractions & transport. Martinn is a wonderful host & very obliging with information & idea's for your visit & if you have the time enjoy a meal with her she is a fabulous chef.

Glenda, Melbourne

Lovely comfortable apartment in the Montorgueil area of Paris. Right in the middle but Montorgueil feels much more Parisian than other tourist areas. Lots of really nice Brasseries and restaurants and local Boulangerie for the early morning bread shop. So much nicer staying in a typical town apartment than a hotel room, and the owner made sure we were welcome and gave us her inside knowledge of the best places to eat and shop. Hope to go again soon!

Alan, Shrewsbury

absolutely THE perfect location for a visit to Paris. Steps from the charming pedestrian shopping street of Montorgueil. Minutes walk to the Louvre. The apartment is quiet, cool and private. Exactly as described in the listing. The hostess Martinn, charming, helpful, an excellent cook and immediately responds to any and all requests and questions, she is also fluent in English. Having stayed several times we have absolutely no hesitancy in recommending the apartment.

Peter, Vancouver

My husband & I stayed there for a little over 2 weeks. We could not have been happier with location, facility & host! Instructions on location, transportation, neighborhoods, accouterments, sightseeing... I could go on and on, Martinn had everything under control. Because we were there for a nice long stay it was a relaxing stay as we did not feel rushed with our sightseeing. Martinn goes out of her way to help with your needs, but also makes sure that you have your privacy. I will have pleasant memories of this trip for a long, long time!

Judith, Tucson, az

We are a married couple over 65 and spent a long weekend in this apartment which was ideal in every way. The apartment itself has everything one needs and is pleasantly and distinctively furnished. Although it is so central it is very quiet as it is in a secluded courtyard, surrounded by fascinating old streets and food shops. It is an easy walk to the Louvre and most of the cultural places one might want to visit: we only just used one carnet of 10 Metro tickets between us. Martinn is very helpful and kind and obliging. We would certainly come again if possible

Andrew, Sevenoaks

We stayed in this lovely apartment this past January. The apartment is fabulously located- a short walk to the Louvre, great restaurants and shops. The kitchen was stocked for the adventurous cook and the breakfast she provided was not only delicious, but lasted our entire stay. We also indulged in a half day tour with our host Martinn, that she customized to our "foodie" passion. This ended with lunch in a local restaurant. It was a wonderful start to our trip and Martinn was very helpful with restaurant and travel information. We hope to return again very soon.

Jennifer, Philadelphia

What a wonderful experience! We visited our daughter studying abroad in Paris and had a fantastic week staying in Martinn's rue D'Argout apartment. We had researched to walk or take the metro to museums, restaurants and the Seine, and we were able to do that and more. You are within easy walking distance of great restaurants and cafes, and if you would like to cook in, there are grocery stores and markets to purchase fruits, cheese, breads, and anything else you would need. Martinn was always ready to help (we lost luggage) - she is your guide to Paris. We can't wait to go back.


A wonderful quiet and secluded flat in the heart of Paris, a stones throw from buzzing restaurants, the Louvre and an amazing array of specialty shops. Martine is the perfect host and expert guide - follow her advice to the cultural and foodie wonders of Paris!


Wonderful base from which to explore Paris. Very comfortable, peaceful and secluded but within walking distance of many of the sights of Paris.A vibrant cafe and shopping street nearby. Martine was a welcoming and excellent host and expert guide.


A delightful host welcomed us to her apartment, and helped us to find great nearby cookware stores, restaurants and cafes, and our way around Paris. Her kitchen is the best equipped we have seen in three countries, and supplemented with great books, maps, and quiet nights for sleeping. Rue Mortorgueil is one block away and full of cafes and food shops of all kinds.


Martines apartment was an incredible find. It was in an oasis of calm,the courtyard was cobbled with lots of well looked after potted planting. The apartment was clean and very welcoming with good furniture and a really comfotable bed lots of quirky interesting lighting and best of all in a very cold mid January warm. We were spoilt for restaurants the choice on the apartments doorstep was amazeing. Plus the boulangerie to die for..We walked to most museums etc. a thirty minute walk got you to most places plus you saw bits of Paris you'd never see on the Metro !
