Hotel de l' Alma enjoys a privileged location in one of the most elegant districts of Paris. Situated amidst the Eiffel Tower and Les Invalides, the Ecole Militaire and the Champ de Mars, the area is characterized by its beautiful stone buildings and majestic aspect. This neighbourhood also enjoys an excellent reputation for its many fine bars and restaurants. Here can be found traditional bistros combining refinement and relaxation, sophistication and charm.
Culture lovers will enjoy the nearby Quai Branly Museum and its fascinating collection of indigenous art and artifacts housed in a building of dazzlingly original architecture. Also not to be missed is the Orsay Museum, a former railway station which now houses the world’s largest collection of Impressionist and Post-Impressionist art; or the Rodin museum, dedicated to the most important sculptor of the modern era. The elegant streets of the Faubourg Saint Germain and the banks of the Seine offer wonderful opportunities for strolling in the heart of one of the world’s great cities, as does the Parc du Champs de Mars, a delightful green space above which soars the Eiffel Tower. All are within a few minutes’ walk of the Hotel de l' Alma.
