Paris agencies that rent for less than a week?

Jump to last reply

My apologies if there is already a thread covering this. I checked the Paris apartment thread and have come up with a few possibilities, but I'm also soliciting more general advice/opinions.

Long-winded background:

I will be transiting through Paris next spring on my way to Kenya. Have four days/nights. My mom, 70, thought she'd like a week in the city while I'm there. A friend is traveling with me. My mom will arrive a couple days ahead of us.

My mother speaks no French but has been to Paris about three or four times, including once by herself (her solo trip was 15 years ago). Mom is wonderful, but on the last family trip to Rome I realized she had aged a bit--she was pretty clingy and dependent on me. She claims she is far more comfortable in France than in Italy; from what I've seen, I would agree. She also prefers apartments to hotels, and although comfortable financially, she is not what I'd call free with money.

I'm thinking: set her up in a hotel with concierge for the couple of days before I arrive and then stay in an apartment where I can handle any problems, get her groceries, etc. Mom can stay on a couple extra days after my friend and I leave for Nairobi. I want to make things easy and nice for my mother. I also want to keep things simple for myself because the focus of my trip is Kenya.

Does this seem reasonable? Other ideas?

Any suggestions for hotels and/or apartments for less than a week? I would like to keep lodging costs around 200E/night. Mom can navigate the 5th, 6th and 4th fairly well.

Thanks in advance for any ideas and opinions!
