Hotel Residence Villiers

Paris, a charming city

Hôtel Résidence Villiers: the perfect starting point

Hotel Résidence Villiers, due to being situated very centrally and being next to the Walgram Metro station, is an ideal place to organise your trip around the French capital. If you have little time to admire the city on the banks of the River Seine, we recommend that you use the metro to move about quickly and gaze out at the must-see places. But if you have time to peacefully enjoy the views, do not forget to go for a walk with your eyes wide open on the large Avenues of Paris, the Bohemian Area, the more chic and modern parts and its fabulous gardens.
