In the 8th Arrondissement, central to major museums and sites
The Hotel WO is on a quiet side street with little traffic in the 8th arrondissement, steps away from the Saint-Lazare metro station. This station is very convenient for reaching major attractions including the Theater District, Garnier Opera, the Arc de Triomphe, Tuileries Gardens, Louvre museum, Grand Palais, and Musee d'Orsay. It's an 18-minute walk (or shorter metro ride) to the high-end shopping on the Champs Elysees and rue du Faubourg.
Paris is one of Europe's most densely populated cities, and is currently one of the world's most important business and cultural metropolises. Known as "The City of Light" for its growth during the Age of Enlightenment, Paris is home to some of the world's most luxurious fashion (Hermes, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), iconic museums, and structures, as well as major media and business outlets.
The Hotel WO is a clean, convenient 30-room boutique option with a focus on design. Rooms are small but charming, with flat-screen TVs, modern decor, and black and white photographs of Paris. It's true that some rooms are downright tiny, and in the bathrooms in Classic Rooms the shower area is practically on top of the toilet -- but booking a larger superior room solves this problem. Rooms on the upper floors are particularly desirable, as some have balconies and views of the Eiffel Tower. With free Wi-Fi and a convenient location for reaching popular museums and attractions, Hotel WO is a good pick.
