These are examples of hotel prices in the city center. In a few metro stops from the center, hotel prices will traditionally be 20 percent lower. A way out of high prices and small rooms can be a popular rental serviced apartment through AirBNB

Paris apartment rental

Examples of apartment rental prices

  • A small apartment in a remote area will cost about 1 044,3 - 1 392,4 USD = 900 - 1200 EUR per month

How to search for an apartment for rent

To rent an apartment in Paris is recommended directly from the owners through the sites of private ads. There are a large number of housing search sites, the most popular are:

What documents are needed

You can also use the services of agencies, but in this case there is a high probability of getting to an unscrupulous agency that will ask for an advance payment for its services, and all their work will be only in that give you several phones from the same sites. The good agency, which is a minority, organizes a viewing of the apartment, which, incidentally, several applicants come to. And also accompanies the deal. Money is paid only in case of a successful result, that is, the signing of a lease.

In any case, to rent a legal apartment with guarantees, that is, with a contract, you will need a package of documents:

  • A copy of your passport with a visa or residence permit
  • Salary receipts for the last three months (bulletins de salaire)
  • Work contract (contract de travail)
  • Three month tax payment confirmation (avis d'imposition;
  • And the latest receipts for paying for the accommodation you lived in before

That is, you must confirm the legality of being in France, the availability of work and a steady income. Of course, you can find housing for rent, without the requirements for documents.

If you rent an apartment officially, then most likely you can expect the state housing allowance, which can cover up to half the cost of rent. Visit the State Social Security website, which provides housing benefits

At European cafes, are prices different depending on whether you are standing at the inside bar, sitting at the inside bar or a table, or sitting on the outside patio?

Techno 2020-11-02
Nope. Same price but you need to ask to be seated exactly where you want.
