Right in the middle of the Marais, you’ll find Unicorners. This is the perfect coworking spot in Paris if you love a cool vibe and artisan coffee. While Unicorners is a little pricier than some of the other options on my top working spaces in Paris, it’s definitely worth a little extra. And it’s still very affordable.
Prices start at €5 per hour for the first hour, then €1 per additional 15 minutes (so that’s €4 for every additional hour). If you plan to stay awhile, the day pass for €20 will be your best option. These prices include unlimited access to their coffee bar, where you can order espresso, oat lattes, even matcha drinks! And there’s an array of healthy snacks with savory and sweet options.
The bright open space features cozy, minimalist decor and lots of green plants, which are supposed to be good for concentration! They have great meeting/conference rooms available too, either by the hour or by the day. Each room is equipped with a projector setup, and everything you need for a successful meeting.
Unicorners also has their own kitchen and offers lunch and dinner buffet options. There’s even an apéro menu, definitely worth checking out if you’re working in the early evening.

Located on a busy street between Place de Clichy and Gare saint-Lazare, it’s easy to overlook MAKOM.

MAKOM is also pretty affordable, for €5 per hour you have access to unlimited coffee, tea and snacks. If you want a day pass, it’s €25, so this is the best option if you plan on staying 5 hours or more.

La Permanence is open 24 hours a day, and is by far the most affordable option of my top 5 coworking spaces in Paris. The low prices and proximity to lots of universities makes La Permanence especially popular with students. It’s set in the heart of Paris’ 5th arrondissement and student area, just a couple minutes’ walk from La Sorbonne.
As with most coworking spaces, you pay by the hour, and depending on the time of day you visit you’ll pay between €1 and €1.50 per hour. You can reserve a private meeting room from just €5 an hour.
While this place my not offer unlimited access to artisan coffee and snacks, they’ve still got the essentials. A Nespresso coffee machine is available and there are lockers to store your stuff. But for me, the best part of La Permanence is that they have printers, copiers and scanners available for you to use. And it costs almost nothing, really. If you’re living in Paris, you know what a luxury it is to have these machines available to you!
There’s also a second location, in Paris 14th arrondissement, near Alésia. This one is slightly bigger and also open 24 hours.
