EASY ACCESS TO ALL THE TOURIST SITES

At an intersection of streets where concept stores, designer boutiques, fine restaurants, trendy bars, clubs and concert halls sit side by side, the Hotel Antoine is a dream location for visitors wanting to experience both the hype and authenticity of Paris.

Just a few minutes away, the Viaduc des Arts creates a pleasant tree-lined path for a walk overlooking the hubbub of the boulevards below. Some people even go running there! Also near to the hotel, the bustling and famous Aligre Market delivers a more traditional image of Parisian life and the opportunity for a few gourmet treats!

Walkers will also appreciate the proximity of the historic Marais district, where they can discover the wonderful Place des Vosages; the façades of the wealthy mansion houses concealed within the maze of alleyways, some housing museums; secret courtyards, hidden gardens; art galleries and fashion stores, gourmet venues and a thousand other attractions.
