If you regularly follow our posts, you’ll know how fond our entire team is of the hotel’s neighbourhood. It’s definitely in the DNA of our establishment to see itself as a member of a tightly knit community, of a small village in the midst of the urban landscape. Come and discover it with us!
Our neighbourhood: a village of artisans in the heart of Paris
Situated in the middle of Saint-Ambroise, Oberkampf and Ménilmontant, these few streets between the 11th and 19th arrondissements proudly display their heritage. What was once a suburb of Paris originally housed artisans who supplied the capital with furniture, clothing, food products and more. Today, our district remains one of the most dynamic and authentic in Paris. It also maintains its tradition of high-quality craftsmanship. What’s more, culture also holds an increasingly important place thanks to the district’s many artists' studios and bookshops.
The art of living in our neighbourhood
It's time to introduce you to some of our neighbours! Why not start by tasting a fresh baguette from Fermentation Générale? In addition to fermented sourdough bread and organic flour, this wonderful shop offers all kinds of tempting products in jars, along with natural wines. Enjoy reading? Visit La Tête Ailleurs bookshop. Great classics and little gems unearthed by a passionate team await you there. Love flowers? Pop into Désirée, an ethical and environmentally responsible florist. When all that shopping gives you an appetite, try one of our two favourite eateries: Ave Maria with its exotic cuisine and original décor, or La Cave de l'Insolite, a fabulous country-style inn with a warm and welcoming ambiance...
We love our neighbourhood and can't wait to share it with you! Stay with us and meet passionate artisans and visit great gourmet addresses.
