How Much Should I Pay For A Monthlong Flat in Paris?
January 6, 2014 12:19 PM Subscribe
Going on honeymoon in June to Paris. I have a friend who runs a business renting apartments in Paris for a month at a time, and he's just sent me the first two options. One costs 1390 Euro, the other 1250 Euro. Both are crazy good locations with crucial amenities like bathrooms. Is this about right, or should we ask for cheaper quotes?

For background, I haven't been to France since I was a teen and my fiance and I would just like to be able to do this cheaply but without giving up too many comforts (i.e. not a hostel, but not too expensive either). My father-in-law-to-be will be paying, but he's a keen businessman and will balk if he thinks we're getting fleeced. My partner and I would just like to walk around and experience the city, probably only paying for things like the Louvre as big expenditures. The second apartment I listed is 3 blocks from the Louvre and has things like a shower, electric heat and a/c, toilet, stove, microwave, and wifi. Also, oddly, linens (which makes me think -- would we need to bring our own for some places?)
I got this idea of an apartment for a month as cheaper than a hotel from searching past AskMeFi questions on travel, but I can't tell if this is good or not. Any help is GREATLY appreciated and I can provide more information here or in PM. Thanks!
