We are beginning and ending an upcoming trip to Europe in Paris, and spending just over a week there. Wanting our time in the city to be absolutement parfait, I've spent hours sifting through hundreds of rentals throughout the city, and a few really stood out. My criteria:
- Under $110(ish)
- In a typical Parisian neighborhood (walkable, near metro, with nearby shops and cafes)
- Real bed (I'm way past my pull-out couch days)
- Good ratings from Airbnb guests
- Bonus points for washing machine, nice kitchen, balcony, and a view
Thinking of planning your own trip to Paris? Here are my top seven picks!
This sweet little spot is in one of Paris' hippest neighborhoods, Le Marais, and boasts an incredible view of the rooftops. Plus, it has an espresso machine.
It doesn't get much more central than Ile St. Louis, a little island in the middle of the Seine. This apartment is just a three minute walk from Notre Dame.
At $139/night, this apartment was pushing my budget, but I love its colorful, funky style.
This Montmarte apartment is where we're spending our last two nights in Paris. It looks a lot like a hotel room, non? Except it has a kitchen, a sweet spiral staircase, and it's $87/night.
This one has a fabulous view of Sacre Coeur. Mon dieu!
I love the details of this little flat.
We booked this one for the first leg of our trip. It may be basic, but it's smack dab in the middle of the bustling Latin Quarter. Just look at the street view!
One last tip: If you're not sure which neighborhood you want to stay in, Airbnb has a really helpful guide for that, too.
