Choosing a Hotel Or Vacation Rental For A Walking Vacation In Paris

  • Websites
The websites  show photos of the hotel interior and offer maps of the area and neighborhood that make it easier to shop and compare.  
  • Amenities and Reviews
The photos are helpful but  you must look at the list of amenities, compare services offered, and read the reviews of former customers.
  • Google Map, Street View
Beyond that,  the section of the city and the street can make a difference for a walking vacation.  A street that has continuous heavy bus and truck traffic can make an unpleasant stay while a pedestrian only street or a hotel in a Paris neighborhood could be a blessing.
Once you locate a promising hotel, look on the Google city map and the street view to determine the hotel's location and the availability of walking or transportation to your desired vacation visits: museums, restaurants, shopping, sights, etc.

  • Shop Well Ahead
You can save by renting a house or vacation apartment for your Paris vacation but you need to shop well ahead of your intended dates and you should do some research.  
  • Reviews, Photos, Google Satellite Map
Read the revues listed,  look at photos, and look at the property with the Google satellite maps, street view if possible.  Does the location match the photos supplied by the owner, is the house really in the center or near the metro station.   Check the neighborhood with Google satellite street view.
    Communicate
Communicate with the owner or property manager by email and save the records of correspondence.  Communicate by telephone to verify that they are actually at that location.  Ask questions via email or telephone.
Does the kitchen have an oven and full stove or is it a hot plate on the counter.  Is there a washing machine, loaner bikes, pool, AC, WiFi, or is it dial-up.  Are there cleaning charges, extra charges for electricity, gas, rubbish removal etc.  How many stairs must you climb to reach the villa or house, is there secure parking    
  • Payment
Pay by credit card.  Pay a deposit but not the full amount before your visit, and only after looking at the agreement or contract.   Wire a small deposit and then call to confirm that the owner or manager received the bank transfer.    
Check Google for any forums or negative reports about the rental company or property.  
You will be asked to pay a security deposit and sign a contract stating the conditions for the return of the deposit.  If the contract is complicated or harsh and the owner or manager offers no reviews, no photos, and no flexibility in the payment method,  keep shopping.   
Book a vacation rental after shopping and viewing location for walking the city. Compare customer reviews, services, photos, and rental prices. Shop for Paris hotels online and book a hotel based on cancellation policies, location, and amenities.
