Booking a short rentals apartment, tips
Renting a short rentals apartment in Paris is the best choice you can make to live in this city like a local. But you have to pay attention to some details before booking. Here are some tips for choosing the best short-term accommodation for you.
Tips to book the best accommodation in Paris
- Check the ads and the reviews
The first important step to take before booking an apartment to spend your vacation is to carefully check the reviews. In addition to viewing the photographs of the house, you should also pay attention to the text of the ad. Not all rental apartments offer the same services. You should always check what is included in the cost of rent: appliances, internet connection, satellite TV, linen for the bedroom and bathroom, to name a few.
- Location of the apartment
Although sometimes it is put in the background, actually the distance of the apartment from the places you want to visit is very important! Always Check for public transportation in the neighborhoods.
- Check-in and check-out
Among the advantages of a short rental accommodation, there is almost total freedom regarding the check-in and check-out hours. Often vacation homes in Paris offer a 24-hour check-in service, with automated systems using safety deposit boxes where you can retrieve your keys at any time, or keyless door opening systems using a cell phone or a numeric code.
Some rental apartments have fixed check-in and check-out times that must be respected as well. Check it out before booking!
In addition to all the basic supplies, some rental apartments offer little extras. Internet access, satellite TV, and bed and bath linens are often provided as basic amenities. To avoid misunderstandings, read the ad carefully and communicate with the agency or the owner of the apartment in case of doubts or special needs.
