Short rentals apartment, pros and cons
Choosing to stay in a short rentals apartment in Paris is a fantastic idea if you are traveling on a limited budget or, above all, if you are a family. Let’s see how, and what the pros and cons are.
Short rentals for holidays, advantages
- Price / spaces
Most of the short rentals accommodations cost around 120 € per night. It is difficult to find such spaces for the same price in a hotel!
Generally, the spaces of a holiday home are at least double that of a standard hotel room. There will be a separate living and sleeping area. For larger properties, you will also have a terrace or garden at your disposal.
An actual pro in booking a short rentals apartment in Paris is the possibility to cook. You won’t be forced to go out for lunch and dinner every day, and you will save a lot of money. Of course, especially for foreigners, going out for lunch in Paris is part of the overall holiday experience, but having an independent solution is always comfortable.
- Minimum stay
The apartments cannot boast economies typical of hotels. That’s why you will hardly be allowed to stay just one night. The minimum stay is at least 3 nights, and the whole week in peak periods, such as August.
Staying in a short-term rental apartment means it won’t have a doorman or a reception. Of course, you can come and go at the time you want, and you will be in touch with a local who welcomes you and who can give you some tips.
I believe it is important to understand the pros and cons of staying in a short rentals apartment. Even if to me is the best solution, not everyone could be happy with the choice!
