Airbnbs in Paris: Know Before You Book
Apartments in Paris, especially in the 7th arondissement, are old and historic.
Space is a premium
Parisian apartments are marketed on a “room” basis, as opposed to the number of “bedrooms” a place has. This is the typical lingo for renting or buying a place. So, double check the Airbnb description. It will often note the number of rooms, usually meaning a living room and a bedroom.
Best for Couples
Make sure you're looking at the number of beds. The 7th arrondissement is a more upscale neighborhood, and often the homes on airbnb with a view of the Eiffel Tower are best suited for just 2 people.
Parisien buildings often have beautiful inner courtyards and grand staircases, but not many will have elevators or AC. If they do have an elevator, it will often be tiny – just enough to fit one or two people. Try to pack light!

Floors are Numbered Differently
Floors in France are numbered differently than in America. The First Floor is always the story above the ground floor, while the ground floor is called the rez de chaussée. To simplify it in your head, think of the floor number as the number of stairs you have to climb!
