I have been researching apartments in Paris, predominately the Marais district, for a 4 night stay in September 2013 for 5 people.
When I sent an email to an apartment booking company asking if a certain apartment was available they advised me "As the Paris Mayor banned the short time rental in the city, we will rent our units on a long term base from April 2013" She then advised that you could still get an apartment but the owner risks being fined or if booked through an agency you may not end up with the apartment you originally booked.
Has anyone heard of this? And if this is the case can anyone suggest a reasonably priced 3 to 4 star hotel in the Marais district ? We are taking our elderly parents (3 of them) with us and as they are pensioners, they are watching the budget.
Thankyou in advance, Lindy
