Tolbiac, in Paris 13

Tolbiac is a relatively young and vibrant neighbourhood, urban yet calm. Near the hotel, you will easily find green pockets such as Paul Nizan park, Berthe Morisot garden or Choisy park.

The district boasts cultural attractions, art galleries and a bounty of shops and restaurants, a thriving cultural and business hub. The hotel is less than 100 metres from Olympiades, Paris’ Chinatown.

Getting to the Hotel

If you take public transport, Olympiades metro station (line 14) is less than a minute’s walk from the hotel. There are also bus stops right outside. From the hotel, you can effortlessly get around Paris and easily reach the city’s train stations and airports.

Metro line 14 – Olympiades station

It takes 14 minutes to get to Gare de Lyon to catch your TGV, 14 minutes or so to go window-shopping at the high-end department stores and enjoy the Paris hypercentre, 14 minutes/2 to travel to see your favourite band in concert at the ACCOR ARENA.

The metro line 14 is a 100% automatic line and the station is accessible for people with reduced mobility. Just outside the hotel!


A quiet area with easy parking, plus an area to drop off luggage in front of the hotel.
