Lovely Studio Near Downtown Reims
A modern, spacious studio with a separate eat-in kitchen, and very clean shower bathroom, near downtown Reims with a great view of the rear of its famous Gothic cathedral. Located on the 5th floor with elevator; on the Courtyard side, so very quiet. The #3 Bus stop is close to the main street entrance with direct access to the Central RR Station and Downtown shopping & Erlon square restaurants. The flat is Not Air-Conditioned but the owner will supply a floor fan with an evaporative cooler (you add ice-cubes) feature for a hot, summer stay. It features Excellent TV-WIFI set up. Mr. Marcelot, the owner, is wonderfully friendly and accommodating. He speaks English. He will do all he can to ensure his guests' comfort, so do not hesitate to request what you need! No washer/dryer but the flat does include a Dishwasher with several detergent pods and upscale dishes, glassware, pots & pans... Linens are also provided . Wonderful for a short "home-away-from home" visit to this charming city.
Well-located, comfortable, quiet, and a terrific host
We spent 5 nights in Reims and found this apartment met all of our needs. It is well-located, just 5 minutes walking from the Cathedral (you can see it from the apartment), 10 minutes to the Cryptoportique area, 15 minutes to the Gare SNCF, and 20-25 minutes from the big champagne houses. So no car necessary to enjoy Reims. Lots of restaurant options nearby. Le 17 was quite good and less than 10 minutes away.
The apartment is as shown -- the bedroom / sitting room is large enough and airy, the kitchen is roomy and well-equipped, the WC is separate from the shower, and there is a desk area if you have work to do or want a comfortable place to read on a laptop.
You can arrive in Reims at either the Champagne-Ardenne station or in Centre Reims. Cedric was kind enough to pick us up, which saved us time and dragging luggage.
If you want to explore the region, it is easy to rent a car in Reims and drive to Epernay (super cute), to smaller champagne producers / villages, or out to Verdun to visit the WWI sites. You can park the car for free just a few minutes away from the apartment, or park closer and pay for certain hours but it is free overnight. Either way, it was easy and convenient as we had a car for 2 of the days we visited.
Overall, we were very impressed with the Champagne region as a destination and found the apartment to be a very good and convenient base for our adventures. We would return and stay at the apartment again.
Thanks again Cedric!
Worth every penny!
This place was exactly as it appears on the listing. Cedric was an amazing host, and went as far as to pick us up from and bring us back to the train station. He was so accommodating, and even drove us by the city center and hotel where the USA soccer team was staying (the reason we were in town). The home has everything we could have asked for, and then some. Cedric went out of his way to make sure we had everything and knew how to use everything in the apartment. The view of the cathedral was absolutely breathtaking and was about a 5 minute walk. It was so easy to get around by foot everywhere, and everything was so convenient. When we come back to France, we will absolutely stay here again. So perfect. Thank you, Cedric!!
Near all and Quiet
Marcelot was very helpful and accommodating. The unit was a perfect size for two and near most attractions. Since we were driving parking was important and we had no issue finding parking, 7PM-9AM is free. I would stay there again.
One month in Reims
The apartment was perfect for me. I spent mid-November to Mid-December in Reims. It is centrally located, an easy 10 minute walk to the cathedral, 15 min to Place Erlon or the SNCF train station. Bus #3 stops just outside the apartment on Boulevard de la Paix. While the apartment is small, it was all I needed and very comfortable. Good kitchen, a built-in desk to work at, small living/room/bedroom. You can see the cathedral out of the living room windows. A market 10 minutes walking and also on bus line #3. Many good restaurants within 15 minutes walking. My wife and I had a great time.
Neat, comfortable apartment with everything you need for a city break. Very central and a quick walk to the cathedral and restaurants.
Reims is a lovely,compact city and we hope to return, thank you Cedric for your hospitality, we had a great stay in your apartment.
