What better way is there to discover Paris than by bike? You can reach your destination without the hassles of public transport or taxis, ride along in the fresh air away from the city’s major arteries and discover neighbourhoods and intriguing places that are off the well-beaten tourist trail… Cycling offers you unrivalled freedom, so why not take advantage of the bicycles available from your Chess Hotel?

The Chess Hotel is part of the Compagnie Hôtelière de Bagatelle, a family group that manages six boutique hotels in Paris. To implement our values of kindness, creativity and high standards, we strive to create original and carefully considered ways of enhancing your experience in our establishments. In keeping with this ethos, we have partnered with Holland Bikes, a company that produces high quality city bicycles, so that our guests can have pedal-powered transport whenever they wish.


Paris by bike


Cycling is becoming increasingly popular in Paris and over the last decade many dedicated facilities have sprung up to the delight of eco-responsible travellers. Take advantage of the capital’s network of protected routes and cycle paths to discover the great monuments, go shopping or simply get to your preferred restaurant or performance venue. For an unusual cycling adventure, take a ride along the Petite Ceinture, a little-known belt of greenery around Paris that follows the route of a disused railway line. Numerous stretches have been developed into cycle paths. If you’d rather conserve your energy, ask the reception for an electric bike that will take you effortlessly to the capital’s most beautiful and interesting locations!

Even if you think you know Paris well, exploring the city by bike allows you to discover unexpected facets. So, remember to book your bike at the reception of your Chess Hotel and get in the saddle!
