Serviced apartments are ideal for people looking for short or long-term stays. Equipped with a living room and a kitchen, they are spacious enough to allow guests to cook, eat and entertain without for-saking the principal benefits of a concierge service.
Famous for its museums and its instantly-recognisable landmarks, it’s tree-lined avenues, manicured parks, and its world famous culinary scene, Paris permanently figures in the top 3 most visited cities on the world. Unlike other European hotspots, Paris is universally beautiful, so it doesn’t really mat-ter which side of the Seine you’re staying in. However, for practical purposes, we recommend you look for short or long-term apartments in neighbourhoods like the Champs Elysées, Montmartre or in the Jewish quarter, Le Marais.
Having compared all the main booking websites for short-let apartments, these are our top choices.
As is the case with most UK cities, when it comes to quantity and variety of properties, book-ing.com outperforms every other website in Paris with over a hundred Aparthotels on offer. To find serviced apartments, first you need to tick ‘Apartments’ and then look for ‘Aparthotel’ in the list. For a modern and well-equipped central apartment of 40m2, you can expect to pay around €150. As always, the best deals are non-refundable, so make sure your trip is definitely on before paying up-front. Alternatively, you can expect to pay about 10% for the privilege of a full refund. Despite our admiration for booking.com, we recommend comparing prices.
