You thought you knew everything about the 15th arrondissement? From the Montparnasse of brasseries and artists' studios to the Bal Blomet, just a few meters from the Hôtel Eiffel Blomet, and the André Citroën and Georges Brassens parks? You'll be amazed...
A walk into the past
Let's explore Saint-Lambert. Just a ten-minute walk from the Hôtel Eiffel Blomet, this neighborhood was home to vineyards and quarries that were used to build some of Paris's finest monuments. It was also a place where Parisians came to relax and enjoy the pleasures of the countryside. Today, it's a friendly neighborhood, and if you look closely enough, you'll find traces of this rich history. Be sure to stop by on weekends, when the Antiquarian and Second-Hand Book Market awaits you!
La Ruche, a place like no other
In the same Saint-Lambert district, your steps may lead you to the Passage de Danzig. Here, since 1902, La Ruche has been welcoming young up-and-coming artists. Created by sculptor Alfred Bouchet, it has seen the work of Modigliani, Soutine, Zadkine, Brancusi, Léger and many others. It also houses a theater where Jouvet and Copeau, among others, performed. And while La Ruche can be visited by appointment only, you'll have free access to the vast exhibition room...
During your stay at the Hôtel Eiffel Blomet, discover the secrets of the 15th arrondissement and the Saint-Lambert district in particular. You'll be in for a real treat!
