It took us around 7mins walk from Metro station to find this lovely hotel sitting next to canal, needless to say for a IHG loyalty member, everything thing was perfect, nice ambience, multilingual staff and vibe surrounded the hotel. Shouldn't miss walking near river to see locals playing Petanque.

Staying in La Villette

Neighbourhood Profile
La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to the futuristic space. Though on the outskirts of Paris, La Villette is worth the short Metro ride from the centre.
