Canal Saint-Martin
The tree-lined Canal Saint-Martin is the focal point of one of the most romantic and hip areas of Paris. Watch boats travel along the canal while lovers and friends take in the atmosphere from the banks or the bridges. Evenings see hoards fill the embankments to drink wine and enjoy good company. The colder days lead people to hipster bars, cozy restaurants, and concert spaces. Those who are more adventurous may explore hidden gems down nearby streets, from local bars to futuristic architecture. With its enriching mix of people of all ages and backgrounds, this neighbourhood has a dynamic, inspiring vibe.

This was a gem of a place. Lovely people who run it. A small boutique hotel in the heart of the trendy Canal St Matin area. Will definitely be back. We stayed in a fairly small room (like a lot of hotel rooms in Paris) but it was comfortable and had everything we needed

We stayed at Le Citizen 4 years ago and spent a lovely February week introducing our young daughters to Paris ... we promised to return and we’ve just spent a jolly, sunnier 5 days at Le Citizen with our girls again. Taking a family suite, this is ideal for a 4 or 5 person

A return visit to Le Citizen. As always, the room had a very comfortable bed, and good bedding, not to be taken for granted in Paris even in more expensive hotels. The summer days were hot during our stay and the air conditioning was excellent and quiet. The hotel is situated on

Hi does the hotel do airport transfers?
They will set up a car service from the airport, but we used the Paris Metro and the RER B train when we left to fly out from Chas. DeGaulle. I'm assuming it was far cheaper and it was quick and efficient.
