  • Nice area in Paris to walk. Many bars, many graffitied walls (some masterpieces from INTI, Chilean most famous artist).  more »
  • One of Paris' most charming neighborhoods. Full of street art. Lots of cute buildings. A little village great to stroll around. Some cafes and food. I would definitely live here.  more »
  • The Butte aux cailles neighbourhood is a great visit if you are staying in Paris for a longer time. It alsmost feel like you are in village, far away from Paris. The athmosphere is definitely vintage ...  more »

  • I tried the outdoor pool just this week (Feb). Quite fun. Short walk to the warmth of the building. A bit confusing with the lockers, changing rooms and levels. Definitely going back.
  • Great facility, recently redone...33m indoor pool and 25m outdoor pool open year round. I normally go before work from 7am to 8am during the week and then in the afternoon on the weekends. The staff and people there are typically friendly. Not much english spoken though.
  • Outdoor pools are always a draw (and they have two here - a 25 and 10 m) but what really impressed me was the indoor pool. The indoor pool (33 m) had the feeling of being light, airy, and almost ethereal. The lanes had minimal rules, compared to other piscines, only the fast lane prohibited brasse. The other lanes were self regulating but I found had inconsistent speeds. The two outer lanes are free lanes so if the inconsistent speed of the other lane swimmers address throwing you off then you have options. The change room was large, spacious, co-ed, and had a layout sightly like a prison (you have to see it to know what I mean). The showers are co-ed but there are individual showers on the side, check the water pressure before you commit to one though. Lockers require a 1€ coin, but hair dryers are free.
  • Winter: water heated indoor and outdoor.
  • Everything is forbidden and everybody must wear a bathing cap and men tight swim shorts. Boring for kids. Safe deposit is available.

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.
