Paris is the third most popular city in the world to visit. And rightly so. Being one of the most visited cities in the world drives hotel prices through the roof and makes it hard to find cheap and affordable hotels in Paris. But thanks to the internet you are able to find reasonable priced stays on platforms like AIRBNB. So, here the wonderful stay we scored whilst staying 7 nights in picturesque Paris….
Helene’s apartment is located 5 minutes away from train station M1 (yellow line) Saint Mande. The yellow line takes you to most of the tourist attractions. Train tickets Prices
1.90 EUR One-way into the city centre.
Further more Saint Mande boasts littles Cafes, cheese shops and even a fruit and vegetable market twice per week!
Price to stay in Paris for 7 nights (AIRBNB)
We paid 420 EUR for 7 nights, including cleaning fees and WIFI booked via AIRBNB!
AIRBNB/Paris is a platform that let’s you stay in other peoples apartments and is usually in comparison to most hotels in Paris much cheaper! For example during the period we wanted to travel one hotel room was sold at 100 EUR per night and we would have spent 700 EUR instead of 420 EUR. So we were totally thrilled!

Still need a cheap flight to get to Paris?
No worries! we used internally from Europe to fly from Hamburg to Paris the airline Eurowings and only paid 100 EUR return flights per person at the time. What a bargain! If you flight from overseas check out Google Flights or Skyscanner. For more tips check out my page cheap flights!
The Apartment’s amenities in Paris
The room was big enough to fit a bed, couch and even a table with 4 chairs right in front of a lovely large window…
She offers a music player and loads of classical CD’s and books to chose from.
Downfall form some would be no TV!
Helene’s Piano Room
Yes, she also had a beautiful piano as she is a pianist, but we did not use this room at all. It was still lovely to look at though!
The apartment’s bathroom
Very clean and modern furnished with a shower. Fresh towels and slippers were provided as well.
The apartment’s kitchen
An adorable little and fully equipped kitchen- even offering a French coffee machine.
Helene is also a vegetarian so I loved all the spices she had for cooking as well as her juicer 🙂 So, if you want to you could cook up a storm here!
TIP: Fully equipped kitchen can save you quite some money when travelling over longer periods of time, especially in expensive cities like Paris!
Conclusion about AIRBNB in Paris
Super comfortable bed and apartment. We felt right at home at Helen’s place and the location was just perfect thanks to the train line. We are able to see everything in Paris we wanted to see and get home to a lovely apartment to rest our feet and make sandwiches for dinner as Paris is too expensive to eat out daily!
Thank you for such a wonderful stay in Paris, Helene!
