Discover Paris

Photo01 - Découvrez Paris

Because the Hotel des Arènes is so ideally located in the French capital, it is easy to get to many of Paris’s most famous monuments and places of interest.

Discover the Saint-Michel neighbourhood on the banks of the River Seine or stop off on the famous Ile Saint-Louis, one of the River Seine’s two remaining natural islets. Stroll along the Boulevard Saint-Germain, then take in the Jardin des Plantes botanical gardens, the Luxembourg Gardens, and the Cathedral of Notre Dame, which is only a few metres from the hotel.

Why not tour Paris by bicycle? There are many VELIB rent-a-bike stands in the vicinity of the hotel. You can rent bikes by the day or by the hour.
