ABUNDANT TOURISM POSSIBILITIES

Adjoining the most fashionable districts of Paris and opening onto their most prestigious addresses, the Eiffel Capitol hotel is located at the intersection of many monuments and museums, but also commercial thoroughfares and shopping centres, in particular the Beaugrenelle centre and its 120 fashion, deco and leisure shops.

Public transport near the hotel enables you to quickly reach areas of the capital which are both interesting and contrasting.

Directly, without changing, line no. 6 of the underground can take you to the Arc de Triomphe, to Trocadéro, very close to the boutique shops in the rue de Passy, or into the Montparnasse district where you can go along rue de Rennes for a shopping outing and reach the Saint-Germain-des-Prés district. A little further along the line, Place d'Italie sets you down on the threshold of the very exotic Parisian Chinatown.

Likewise, line no. 10 will take you to Bon Marché, the most fashionable and exclusive of all the Department Stores and the only one on the left bank, then to Saint-Germain-des-Prés, and again into the Latin Quarter, or else to the Jardin des Plantes (Botanical Gardens), the green setting of the Muséum national d’histoire naturelle (Natural History museum) and its numerous annexes.

Thanks to bus no. 42, you will arrive at the bottom of the Champs Élysées, place de la Concorde and its direct access to the Jardin des Tuileries linked to the Louvre, but also to place de la Madeleine, Opera and the Department Stores on the boulevard Haussmann.

But Paris is a capital with a human dimension and its beauty makes it the place for unforgettable walks, for you can see and contemplate everything. The Eiffel Capitol has therefore selected a few beautiful spots, which can all be reached with a walk of under 30 minutes from the hotel.
