We are SO excited about being able to offer apartments in Paris!
For some it's an ideal way to stay in the City of Light, to have a "home base" from which to explore. It's especially good for families, and for people who intend to stay in Paris for more than a few days. It often ends up a lot less expensive than a hotel, and except for daily maid service, you end up with most of the benefits and a lot more space. You have to make your own beds and tidy up, but you also have a lot of flexibility that a hotel can't offer. What a treat to be able to decide to stop at the charcuterie on the way "home" instead of dining out every night...
We are offering three different apartment options for your stay in Paris.
The first option is the "Apartment Hotel." Rather than individual apartments, these are hotels that offer expanded living space with kitchens; you can choose from studios, one or two-bedroom units. These would be booked in the same way that you would book a hotel. The primary advantage to this option is that you would be amongst other tourists, and for some, that is comforting.
The second option is an apartment that is available for short stays and "all-inclusive," in which the utilities fees and cleaning fees are included in the price. We have several of these available throughout the city in studio and one or two-bedroom configurations. The rates go down the longer your stay. Most have full kitchens and baths, cable or satellite television, vaccuum cleaners and washer/dryer combinations. Some have VCRs, fax machines, and a few even have computers set up for Internet use. In these apartments your only charge is for the use of the telephone.
The third option is an apartment that is for stays of longer than five days. These apartments require the one-time purchase of a "utilities pass" that is priced depending on the type of apartment (size) and the number of people in the party. For example, a studio unit for two people requires the purchase of a Utilities Pass for 125.00 Euros, no matter the length of stay. A large two-bedroom apartment for four people would require a Utilities Pass of 205.00 Euros.
For the latter two rental types, half of the full fee is required upon booking and is non-refundable. This makes sense, since they are individual apartments that - once taken out of bookable inventory - will no longer be "on the market" for potential guests. The "apartment hotel" bookings follow the guidelines of regular hotels. There is usually a small cancellation charge on these for a voided booking.
The listings are broken down by arrondissements, or districts. See the map below to determine where you might want to stay.
We hope that these guidelines help in your decision. Look for specials on the apartments. Some offer a discount for a 30-day (or longer) stay.
We really believe that the apartment option is fantastic. To be able to "live" in a neighborhood while in Paris, in a "home," is the best way to experience the city.
