Ongoing to discover the contemporary art

Even though the majority of these houses were ephemeral others were aimed to be permanents. That’s especially the case of the Tokyo Palace which represents the story of the French Art.

For your next journey in Paris, we recommend you to put your luggage down a Helzear suite or flat, a hotel nigh the Tokyo Palace, as pleasant to discover or rediscover contemporary works.
