Oooooh la la, Paris! Land of romance, the Eiffel Tower, and all things fancy. You’ve decided on the City of Love for your next trip, bought your flights, and now you need a place to stay. Plum Guide is my go-to site for vacation apartment rentals, so here I’m sharing my top Plum Guide Paris property picks you won’t be able to resist! Think of it as your new favorite alternative to Airbnb.
My favorite Plum Guide Paris apartment rentals
Like it or not, part of having a good trip is having good accommodations. They can make or break it. Imagine a nice view from a clean apartment that’s centrally located but still quiet. Contrast that with an apartment that requires an hour on public transport to get anywhere worthwhile, that’s dirty, has a leaky faucet and is a 7th floor walkup. Not fun.
To prevent the latter from happening, I want to (re)introduce you to Plum Guide for all your vacation rental needs in Paris, other areas of France and Europe, and even the US. You can think of them as a luxury Airbnb alternative that features the best of the best apartments across low, mid, and high price points.
Each apartment is vetted for quality, location, cleanliness and more and the best part is you can get in touch with a human 24/7. Customer service is important. I also love that Plum Guide has a section for each listing called Home Truths where they point out anything that prospective tourists need to now about, like no a/c or elevator.
I did an entire Plum Guide review post of our recent stay in St.-Jean-de-Luz, so please check that post out for more details. Here, I want to get into my top Plum Guide Paris apartment picks for your next stay that I’ve broken into low, mid-range, and splurge categories.
For purposes of this post, the “most affordable picks” category includes apartments under 150€/night (it’s still Paris!), the mid-range comes in at under 350€/night and the splurge category is over 350€/night. Please note that the quoted prices below may fluctuate depending on the dates.
*BOOKING TIP*: Book early! The most popular properties get snatched up quickly so be sure to book as far in advance as possible.
Most affordable picks
Yellow Heights, 77€/night. This cozy beauty with a bite-sized price is full of natural light and is a Plum Guide Award winner in the heart of Paris.
Courtyard Vert, 94€/night. Located in a cobblestone courtyard of a 17th-century Hotel Particulier in the Marais, this 1 BR apartment sleeps 3 and makes a centrally located home base.
Musical Tones, 96€/night. Around the corner from the Abbesses metro station, this quaint apartment sleeps 2 and is a 7-minute walk from the Sacré Cœur.
The Graphiste, 103€/night. Open and airy, this Plum Guide Award winner is a stone’s throw from the Bastille and sleeps 4.
Trinkets & Travels, 107€/night. This charming apartment in the Latin Quarter sleeps 2 and is a Plum Guide Award winner. Take note that it’s only available for long-term bookings and not tourist trips. But it was too gorgeous to not include.
The Striped Pole, 112€/night. This one’s in the middle of the 15th and has easy access to public transport nearby. Balcony views for the win! Another Plum Guide Award winner.
Game of Chess, 127€/night. The home critic notes that this apartment “[celebrates] Second Empire style, ideal for more mature guests with distinguished taste.” While not quite as central as some of my picks, it’s well worth it for guests who appreciate the style. It’s also a Plum Guide Award winner.
Studio in the Sky, 129€/night. This one is located in Courbevoie — not city center Paris — but its stylish decor and price point make it worth a look. A metro stop 6 minutes away by foot will get you into the city in no time.
Chenier VIII, 140€/night. Another Plum Guide Award winner, this small apartment with a soothing neural color palette is a 3-minute walk from the Strasbourg – Saint-Denis metro station.
Laplace, 231€/night. This Latin Quarter pick is full of personality and has a nice amount of space to cook at home if the mood is right. Another Plum Guide Award winner.
Pearl & The Globe, 243€/night. This Plum Guide Award winner is actually a chic hotel room in the Marais where you’ll find all the action.
The Tannery, 245€/night. The Eiffel Tower view says it all! This Plum Guide Award winner is light and spacious making it the perfect choice.
A Silent Cocoon, 263€/night. This stylish studio is on the top floor giving you rooftop views for days. While on the small side, this Plum Guide Award winner was recently renovated and is private and quiet.
The Portrait Artist, 288€/night. In a quiet neighborhood in the 16th within walking distance of the Trocadéro, this apartment sleeps 4 and has a spacious master bath.
Liberator, 302€/night. This Plum Guide Award winner embodies that Parisian chic look and sleeps 4. Plus, the Ile St. Louis location can’t be beat.
The Atelier, 418€. Not far from the Seine in the Place de la Bastille area, this lovely 2BR place sleeps 6 people.
The Parisian Piano, 489€/night. This modern Marais apartment has plenty of space for 4 guests and loads of natural light.
A Marais Safari, 534€/night. The African-inspired decor here will make you feel like you’re on a safari. It sleeps 8 and is a Plum Guide Award winner near the Rambuteau metro stop.
A Canvas of Blue, 934€/night. Located in the 19th, this home that sleeps 6 is in a period building and has been restored with a modern twist.
Wildest Dreams, 1021€/night. Just a 2 minute walk from the Sentier metro station, this gorgeous apartment sleeps 8 and features high ceilings, chandeliers and huge windows, making it the perfect choice for a special trip.
Roi Soleil, 1172€/night. This Saint-Germain-des-Prés apartment is elegant to the max and sleeps 4. Can we say wow?
City of Louvre, 2715€/night. This spectacular residence was built in 1639 by Cardinal Richelieu, the Prime Minister under Louis XIII of France and sleeps 12.
The Crystal Decanter, 5725€/night. Now for the splurgiest of the splurges. If you want a fabulous apartment with service to match, this one’s for you (and it’s no surprise it’s a Plum Guide Award winner). You have your own butler, concierge and room service available 24/7. WOW!

This is so timely! Planning a London/Paris spring break trip for either next April or sometime in 2024, and really want some sort of apartment in both places. VRBO and AirBNB have their charms, but this Plum Guide rocks! Thank you for pointing it out to us…should be very helpful!
You are so welcome! Glad you found it helpful I hope you find the perfect place 🙂
