We used airbnb in Paris for 11 days and without a doubt it was one of the best trip ever. We had a million dollar plus two bedroom apartment within short walking distance of the Eiffel Tower by Trocadero Circle. We could see it even from the kitchen window. This got us hooked on Airbnb and we try to make sure our guests have teh same experience we did at our place.
