These are the average rental fees paid by a full-time tenant who has signed a yearly lease, or a 9 months' lease for students.

The amounts mentioned have nothing to do with hotel rates, which are set using official "star system" guidelines.

Vacation rental apartments far surpass the new caps on rental fees which were recently instituted by the government to protect full-time or student renters. In most cases, the weekly rate is equal to the monthly rate paid by a full-time renter.

So do I understand that these are avg monthly rents for a 375 sq ft studio (long term rental)? They seem somewhat low to me, even for averages.

Also, agencies specializing in vacation rentals sometimes offer long-term rentals. However, they do not necessarily adhere to the law, and many charge in excess of the legal rates permitted.

I had a friend inquire about a few apartments like this - he needed to stay for 9 months. He was quoted some very high rental fees, threatened to complain to the City's housing authorities, and was told that he could either take it or leave it.

Why is the rent around Place de Clichy so much higher that the rest of Paris? At 2160 euro - is it a typo?

That does look very out of line for Place de Clichy!

I had no idea that hotel rates were set differently than owners set their rates to rent an apartment to someone by the month. Good thing that that was pointed out to me. I thought they were exactly the same!

Nevertheless, all other things being equal, one will pay more for a hotel around the area of George V than around Maraichers, n'est-ce pas?

I think someone might have just transposed the first 2 numbers in the Clichy estimate.

If you take the time to look - and it doesn't take very long - you can find less-expensive hotels in any part of the city.

Many of them do not advertise on the internet, but if you're walking around, you'll find them - and they're not bad, just clean and basic. Often, you can get a room immediately, too.

It is a fun map for learning something about Paris. But not really a tool for travelers who are trying to book just one room with more specific parameters. When available, budget places in nice neighborhoods usually beat budget rooms in run-down neighborhoods. I'm thinking of my old favorite Vicarage Gate Hotel (now closed) in the Kensington Gardens neighborhood of London.
