Discover Paris

From our hotel in the 13th arrondissement

Every place in the 13th arrondissement is different, from the modern architecture of the François Mitterrand Library to the small cobbled streets of the Butte-aux-Cailles. Let yourself be charmed by the bustle of the Place d'Italie, with its shops and in particular the large Italie 2 shopping centre and its 130 boutiques. In fine weather, stroll along the banks of the Seine or visit the lively terraces of Bercy Village (Cour Saint-Emilion).


The Gare de l'Est, Gare du Nord, Montparnasse and Gare d'Austerlitz are directly accessible by metro Place d'Italie, 100 metres from the hotel. The bus also takes you directly to the heart of the capital: the Latin Quarter, St-Michel, the Louvre, the Opera and the department stores are within easy reach...
