Accommodation booking in Paris – advice & tips

|Comments are Off

If you are looking for an accommodation booking in Paris you may want to read our tips and advice for getting a nice place that suits your tastes

Here are our best tips to scoring a nice place in Paris

 

1 (Best case) Have someone to check the place and the room for you.

This is the best case as you will be sure to get a nice hotel and nice room as well. The person visiting the place may be a friend, relative, colleague or a third party.

 

2 Ask a friend to refer a hotel or an apartment to you.

If a friend has the same tastes as you, this will be a good way to get a convenient accommodation. The only requisite is that you need to have a friend who has visited Paris before you and who had the same travel requests that you have.

 

3  Read certified reviews in travel guide books such as Lonely Planer, Baedeker, Guide du Routard or any others.

A guide book is still a great way to find your accommodation booking in Paris as the writers would have visited the place at some point. The main limitation is that guide books do not usually go to the hotels every 6 months and the review may be a few years old. A lot can happen in a few years.

 

4 (Worst case, but still valuable) The last step and bottom line is to check the hotel or flat reviews on websites such as Trip advisor, AirBnB, Booking.com and others.

The main limitations are: this is time consuming, there may be fake reviews, a lot of places have top and worst rankings for the same reasons (cleanliness, cost / value ratio, noise, decoration and furniture…).

 

At ParisByM, we consider that step 1, 2 and 3 are your best alternatives for your accommodation booking in Paris.
