Just a few steps away from the lions of place Denfert-Rochereau, this original hotel is taking part in an environmentally friendly process. Founded by a community activist, the Solar Hotel, as it’s name points out, runs on energy thanks to solar panels on its outside. A battery then transforms the energy and stores it. Moreover, the hotel collects rainwater in large containers to use for flushing toilets. It also proposes bikes and an organic breakfast. This hotel pays attention to detail – only apple juice is proposed as the apples come from areas that are closer by than those of oranges, which are often imported from Spain. The City of Light being one of the most popular capitals in the world, we can only applaud this initiative.
