It seems the war between the City of Paris and Airbnb is far from over.
The rules around rentals on the home-sharing platform in Paris have already been tightened but the mayor isn't convinced they've go far enough to stop the city becoming “an open-air museum” which is reserved exclusively for tourists.
“Yes to the sharing economy. Yes to Parisians who rent their apartment a few days a year to have a small additional income. No to those who make money preying, destroying residential housing and risking making Paris a museum city.”
Hidalgo has accused the home-sharing platform of breaking the law by listing 1,000 homes that have not been officially registered with the City of Paris.
