My whole “thing” in this world is making sure everyone on earth (okay well not everyone) knows that it absolutely does not have to be out of this world crazy expensive to travel to dream destinations. If I had a slogan of some sort it would be along the lines of “Getting the absolute best for the least amount of money”…or something like that. I don’t know if you would call us “budget” travelers. We don’t stay in hostels, rarely guesthouses of any kind, yet I manage to unearth really incredible accommodation (and flights) for even more incredible prices (persistence is a virtue). So I guess by “least amount of money” I mean that I find the most lux thing I can within any given budget. Whether that’s $50 a night or $400 a night, I feel like I have a knack for knowing what the best is for whatever amount of money, aka DEALS! So sure we travel as cheaply as possible, but we also know where to put the money and where to penny pinch.
Since we stayed in Airbnbs in France (and really almost everywhere we go), I’ve been scouring Airbnb for the best accommodation deals I could find to show you and I’ve run across some preeeeetty good ones. So without further ado, here are the Top 10 Best Affordable Airbnbs in Paris I could find for like stupid good prices for all shapes and budgets. (titles are links to the listings)
1. All You Need
What a great deal for the space and view! Truly all you need for your stay in Paris…and Montmartre is my favorite neighborhood! Any place with a nice street view is a-ok with me.
2. A Bit Modern
If you’re a group of 6 and love a little bit more modern of a feel, this is your perfect place. The cost is so low when split and look at that outdoor space!
What this itty bitty studio lacks in size and character makes up in VIEWS. See that photo of the Eiffel Tower? That’s the actual view! Imagine that sparkling from your window! You’d have to spend gobs more for a view like that at a hotel. The sofa folds down into your bed so this studio is definitely good for a single or a couple who really likes each other.
The reviews are raving, the space is spectacular, and the nightly rate? Unbelievable! The only catch is that it’s a 6 night minimum but it’s Paris and 6 nights in Paris is definitely a good idea.
Steps away from the Champs Elysees: Check. Cool historic building: Check. Glam vibe: Check check check. A full two bedroom plus a pull out makes this a steal of a deal if you’re traveling as two couples. If you’re traveling as a family, it’s still a steal of a deal because hotels in Paris will cost ya way more than this.
Old world vibes in this Latin Quarter apartment really hits the spot. Give me those stone walls and antique furniture any day. And wait until you see the cool entrance.
I wanted to incorporate one high tag kind of place on this list because while “affordable” generally probably means the same to most of us, “affordable” is also something completely different to someone with a high budget. So you high rollers, this one is for you. (Although it does have 3 bedrooms so if you’re a group it could still be reasonable!) Plus…um…the view?
This might be one of my favorites on the list. Sure it’s a studio but yes that’s the Eiffel Tower in the window and yes the ambiance is perfectly Parisian. The price is fantastic for the vibe and view because this would be considered a mini suite at a luxury hotel for double or triple the cost.
I LOVE the old antique feel of this place on the Ile de la Cite. It really gives an ambiance of going back in time and while everyone always wants an Eiffel view…peep the Notre Dame from here! Plus…the reviews are a straight up 5 star and you can’t beat the price.
When I’m in Europe I’m a total sucker for the old, vintage, antique, medieval, 400-year-old-everything. This adorable place hits all of that for me from the floors to the mirrors to the view that probably hasn’t changed in centuries. And it’s in the Marais which is a great central area with lots of food and shopping.
I hope you enjoyed this list and I really hope you let me know if you book one of these!
