While Airbnb is a popular way to stay in different cities without the cost and hassle of a hotel, Paris will soon start making owners of short-term rental properties register with City Hall. French law states that an owner may not rent out a primary residence for more than 120 days/year. The change, taking place in December, is meant to to add more accountability to the system, bolster hotels, and will protect landlords from having their tenants rent out rooms on Airbnb. The city, like many others, has seen a dip in hotel usage since the site became popular.
