17th Arrondissement, Paris

3.6
The 17th arrondissement of Paris is one of the 20 arrondissements (administrative districts) of the capital city of France.GeographyThe land area of this arrondissement is 5.669 km2 (2.189 sq. miles, or 1,401 acres).Situated on the right bank of the River Seine, this arrondissement is divided in 4 administrative districts: Ternes and Monceau in the southwestern part, two upper-class districts which are more Haussmannian in style; in the middle of the arrondissement, the Batignolles district, an area mostly occupied by young families or couples, with a marked gentrification process; in the northeastern part, the Épinettes district, a former industrial district gone residential, which is mainly middle class and also experiencing a less advanced gentrification process.The town hall of the 17th arrondissement is on Rue des Batignolles. It is the only town hall of Paris to be located in a modern building. The original building was torn down in 1971 to make room for the current edifice. The 17th arrondissement also hosts the Palais des Congrès of Paris, which is a large exhibition center with an associated high-rise hotel, the Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile, the largest in the city.DemographicsThe peak population of Paris's 17th arrondissement was reached in 1954, when it had 231,987 inhabitants. Today, the arrondissement remains dense in population and business activity, with 160,860 inhabitants and 92,267 jobs as of the most recent census (1999).

  • 17 ° is stuck between 16 ° and 18 ° (bourgeois for one and popular for the other boroughs) and if you want a summary of the outlying districts of Paris is the ideal district going from the plaine Monceau Haussmann buildings (through the boulevard des Batignolles) and then visit the Batignoles District through the Church and the square then finish by clichy avenue if you are brave made the following three markets street of Levis of the batignoles and spruce

  • After five nights at the Westin Vendome we moved out to a private apartment in the 17th. The neighbourhood is charming and feels very safe. It is mainly residential and appears fairly 'well heeled'. S...  more »

Where to stay in Paris

Each of the city’s 20 arrondissements, or districts, has a personality all its own. If you prefer high-end accommodations and to be in the middle of the action, look for lodging in the 1st through the 4th arrondissements. For more affordable lodging and access to major metro lines, try the 12th. The Oberkampf area of the 11th arrondissement has an edgier, more hip vibe. For easy access to tourist sites,  the 16th is within a stone’s throw of the Arc de Triomph and the Eiffel Tower, and the 17th is within walking distance to the Champs-Elysées. Avoid the 18th, 19th, and 20th, because these can be dangerous, especially if you’re not familiar with the city.
