City guide 2024


Discover the capital with Le Tanneur

If Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world, it's because the French capital fascinates everyone with its streets steeped in history, its iconic locations and its secret little shops, which only the regulars know. At Le Tanneur, we've been walking the streets of Paris since 1898, and we thought it would be a good idea to compile our best locations into a little guide to keep for the duration of your stay, then pass it on to those who, like you, deserve to enjoy it.

where to stay ?

Finding a hotel for the night in Paris means choosing between a thousand and one ambiances. From the small intimate hotel overlooking the roofs of the capital, to the discreet charm of bed and breakfasts or private flats, every corner of the city has a new surprise to offer. Whether you prefer the elegance of large spaces or the bohemian comfort of a small, cosy location, Paris will always accommodate your every wish. Drift off, lulled by the mellow Parisian night and wake up ready to explore again.

a modern venue

the Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers

We recommend the Hôtel National des Arts et Métiers for a number of good reasons, starting with its values based on high standards and attention to detail. We also admire its authenticity, its expertise and its genuine love of beautiful things. The rooms are modern and comfortable, and the rooftop terrace commands panoramic views over Paris. It's the kind of place that reminds us why our capital is one of the most visited cities in the world and also one of the most loved.

An unexpected venue

The Mob House

The reputation and elegance of the city of Paris is based not only on traditional Parisian palaces, but also on innovative hotels where you feel right at home. That's why we love the Mob House. These hotels focus on modern amenities and well-being packaged in a chic industrial design. The restaurant, Feuille de Chou serves healthy and tasty cuisine, but the main thing you won't want to miss is the swimming pool.
