Access to La Reserve Paris Apartments
Now as we have said previously, La Reserve Paris Apartments are family, pet and disabled friendly, although there is a stipulation of a minimum three night stay, yet you will find that many people stay far longer and they have many clients who are regulars, and once experienced, you will understand why.
Located in the 16th Arrondissement of Paris, for those of you arriving with your own vehicle, you will be pleased to know that there is indoor parking and valet parking available, although the majority of people will opt for a private airport pick-up by La Reserve themselves, which they will organise to ensure a smooth transition from plane, through customs and so on.
However, for those of you wishing to use the network of public transport in Paris, whether it be for arriving or whilst staying here, you will find that the nearest Metro station is only a very short walk away, and called the Trocadero stop, this serves Metro line 6 and line 9.
Alternatively, you have the Paris bus lines 22, 30, 32 and 63 along with the Noctilien Night Bus Service via line N53, which are all within metres from the La Reserve Apartments Paris, but a little further walk through the Jardins du Trocadero and you could catch bus lines 72 and 82, not forgetting l'OpenTour that is a company offering hop on and hop off bus tours in Paris.
Cycles are available for your use while you are at Las Reserve Apartments Paris, so we will forget about mentioning the Velib stations on this one, plus you have a car at the ready for when you wish to enjoy the comforts and luxury of La Reserve Paris Hotel and Spa.
Yet rather than pick up a normal Paris taxi when returning from a meal at one of the many gourmet restaurants in Paris, the Opera, a concert or show, etc, you can also call and arrange for a La Reserve car to pick you up instead, which means added privacy, reliability, comfort and again as always, luxury and the ultimate peace of mind.
