The Gardette Park Hotel is located in a quiet street bordering the greenery of Maurice Gardette Square, in an authentic Parisian neighbourhood between Bastille and République. This part of the French capital is off the tourist trail but full of charm. Just up the hill are the former villages of Menilmontant and Belleville, as well as Père Lachaise cemetery, where The Doors’ Jim Morrison is buried.
We are nevertheless within walking distance of such Paris classics as Bastille and Place des Vosges (16-18 minutes), and the whole of the trendy Marais district. République is just 3 metro stops away from our nearest station, Saint-Ambroise. Here you can stroll along the Canal Saint-Martin, a pleasant, bucolic walk. Or take a cruise from Bastille to La Villette through the canal’s underground section.
