How Much is Rent in Paris?

How much is rent in Paris? If you’ve ever wondered about the average cost of rent in Paris, France, then today you’re going to find out!

I have rented an apartment in Paris for 3 years in different apartments and overall, I found the rent to be quite reasonable for a major city.

Rent is much less than what you’d pay in New York or London, but certainly more than what you’d pay in Berlin or Lisbon. I’d say that rent in Paris is definitely on the higher end of the scale of European cities. The good thing is that renting in France provides a number of legal protections and rent controls that keep prices down.

Rent in Paris varies significantly depending on the location, size of the apartment, and amenities of the property. Depending on the number of bedrooms and neighborhood, rent in Paris can range from €500 to more than €4,000!

Rents can be even higher in certain upscale or desirable “rich” neighborhoods, such as the Champs-Élysées, the 6th arrondissement, the Marais, and Place Vendôme.

Generally, the average monthly rent for a one-bedroom apartment in the city center is around €1,000 to €1,500, while a two-bedroom apartment can range from €1,800 to €2,500.

Students can find small chambres de bonne (small studios below the roof of the building) for anywhere from 400€ to 900€ per month. On the lower end, most of these studios do not have their own toilet room but rather share a toilet located in the communal hallway with other studios on the floor. They do have private showers inside, however.

Outside of the city center, prices can be significantly lower, but this may come with the trade-off of longer commute times.

These prices can fluctuate depending on the market and other factors! I highly recommend checking a reliable real estate or apartment rental website for the most up-to-date and accurate information before deciding to rent vs. buy an apartment in Paris!
