Which Paris neighborhood for apartment rental?

Jump to last reply

Hello! My bf and I will be in Paris for a long weekend the end of March, and we are wanting to rent an apartment. We are 28 and 26yrs old, and this is not our first time in Paris, so we are really wanting to be able to eat, drink, walk around, etc. We are looking forward to going out as well. I have narrowed my search to 2 areas where I have found available apartments in our budget. One apartment is on Rue de Martyrs in the 9th, in what I guess would be the South Pigalle (SoPi) neighborhood, which I have read great things about. We stayed in the 4th on previous trips, which we really enjoyed, but the other areas we were looking were near Place de Republique in the 3rd/10th area, I guess this would be considered the Haut-Marais. We are wanting to go out at night, but we also want something that will be great to stroll during the day, and we do get more space for our money in the 9th, but I reckon the Haut-Marais is probably more hip, closer to Oberkampf, Canal Saint-Martin, Belleville, etc?

It's be a year since we were last in Paris and we stayed in the St. Paul area in the 4th near the Seine, which we enjoyed but we found ourselves heading deeper into the Marais at night to go our and explore. I am not as familiar with the 9th/18th.

Thanks for any advice!
