My first Paris apartment was rented through Airbnb in 2013. I had no idea what Airbnb was and it was so new. I heard about it through a friend and when I was looking for places to rent. I searched and searched and came up with this apartment overlooking the Parisian rooftops in Montmartre. When you are looking on Airbnb it could take some knowledge of the city you are going to stay in what neighborhoods are good and in ideal locations. I get a lot of requests from friends headed to Paris to help them apartment search. It can be a lengthy process so I decided to do the searching for all of you at the same time and create a post about it. I am going to break it down by cost because the budget is probably the top priority for travelers.
