Paris in the summer of 2007...


Hello to all..

My wife and three large teens are heading to Paris this summer for four days.

Need a cheap, clean, safe, easy to get to apartment for four nights arriving on July 8th.

Budget is $200 USD. Open to apartments or B&B's. Like the B&B route better hoping for more personal care during their stay; directions, advice on where to go, feeling someone watching out for them.

Side note, the four have no French language skills, only English and German.

Thanks to all,

Steve

You can pretty much forget the concept of a B&B in urban Paris -- they are few and far between in the city.

You should definitely rent an apartment.

I think your B&B idea is a good one. Here is a great site with all sorts of places in Paris:

What I have heard about B&Bs in Paris is that they may be a part of a family's apartment. For 4 people, that may be cramped to begin with. Not my cup of tea.

hi, stash,

I had a quick look at the B&B link provided by robjame - they certainly don't look like the cramped rooms the OP fears.

however, you may have to look for places that take more than 4 prople as most appear to have at least one room with a double bed - any your lot may prefer singles. ditto apartments.

good luck with your searches.

regards, ann

There is a lot of fun navigating on the site I gave you above. Here is one that might be ideal. The location is great:

The advantage of a B&B is that a lot of apartments expect weekly rentals whereas the 4 day stay would be no problem at a B&B.
I am assuming that your budget is per night as $200 for 4 nights would be hard.
I haven't used this sevice but it comes well recommended by fodorites.
