I'm looking into spending two weeks in Paris between the 20th December and the 3rd January. I'm an aspiring film director/screenwriter and would love to spend two weeks observing the culture, participating in the culture and being inspired by the city. I've spent hours and hours looking at every possible hotel/hostel/apartment website and cannot think where to stay. The cheaper accommodation seems like its not in a very nice area, or that its only marginally cheaper than somewhere much nicer. Ideally I'd love to stay in a furnished apartment in the 5th or 6th Arrondissement with utilities included for under €900 total. Preferably less but thats what I'm realising I might need to stretch to.
I'm planning to come to Paris next Sunday-Wedsnesday to view potential apartments so I'm hoping that someone could possibly come back to me with any advice or maybe even know someone who is a Student going home for Christmas who has to pay rent and would be willing to let me give them some money in exchange for staying in their apartment?
If anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know!
Thanks in advance,
