UNESCO, close to the hotel

The United Nations’ cultural institution UNESCO, created in 1945, aims to contribute to world peace by encouraging international cooperation through science, education and culture, all the while respecting justice, liberty, and all backgrounds, races and religions. Its headquarters in Paris, which replaced the former Hotel Majestic in 1958, is made up of a main building in the shame of a three-pointed star, a cubic building and an accordion-shaped building.

Located on Place Fontenoy, a few streets away from Paris 15, the site of the UNESCO headquarters fits the semicircular design of the square and the straight lines of the surrounding Avenues de Lowendal, de Saxe, de Ségur and de Suffren, which gives it its distinctive shape. The UNESCO building is well worth a visit, to discover its gardens, its artwork and its temporary exhibitions with an international theme.

The 15th arrondissement

The 15th arrondissement, located next the 7th and 14th, is one of the largest in Paris. It is made up of four districts - Grenelle, Necker, Saint-Lambert and Javel. It’s also one of the arrondissements with the most squares and parks, including Square Saint-Lambert, home to the 15th arrondissement town hall, Parc André Citroën and Parc George Brassens.

Montparnasse Station

Straddling the 14th and 15th arrondissements, Montparnasse is one of the largest railway stations in Paris. The current station, built in the 1960s alongside Montparnasse Tower, features the Jardin Atlantique park plus imposing concrete architecture. The station, which historically connected Paris and Brittany, now serves much of western France, from Lower Normandy in the North to the Pyrénées in the South, and onto Spain.


The Beaugrenelle district is a dynamic area, a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower, the Motte-Picquet and the charming Rue du Commerce. Recently built and ultra-modern, the Beaugrenelle shopping centre has lots of brands on offer. It's the perfect place to take a stroll or hit the shops. 

Boulevard Garibaldi

Boulevard Garibaldi, home to Hotel Baldi, is located in the 15th arrondissement between the Boulevard de Grenelle and the Boulevard de Pasteur. It follows the route of the former Fermiers Généraux city wall built between 1784 and 1790, one of many that once surrounded Paris. Boulevard Garibaldi is named after the Italian general of the same name who fought alongside the French in the Franco-Prussian War of 1870-1871.


The Place du Trocadéro offers one of the greatest views in Paris. Its vista over the Eiffel Tower and the Champ de Mars is the stuff of dreams. Located on the former Chaillot hill, where Queen Marie De’ Medici had a country house built in 1583, the square at the foot of the gardens at Trocadéro is not to be missed.
