About the Space
Our Mozilla Paris space combines working areas for up to 30 people and a vibrant community space designed to host up to 50 people for our Mozilla community events, meetups, and work weeks. We’ve incorporated the same leading technologies, amenities and designs as our other unique Mozilla Spaces around the world, all with a unique Paris feel. After all, it is Paris!
Traveling to Paris
Note that Gare du Nord (French for "North Station"; outside of Paris it may be called "Paris - Nord") is about a 15 minute walk from the Mozilla office, so depending on the weather and what you're carrying, you might choose to walk from Gare du Nord to the office (alternatives: Metro with transfer, taxi). But if you do, you should definitely consult a map first and probably have the map with you.
Leaving the Space
When leaving the space, please use the small button in the final pair of doors to exit, and do not open the large doors themselves.
Traveling around in Paris
Public transit in the city offers a few options - metro, bus, RER (suburban express railway), and suburban trains (Transilien).
There are many hotels near the office. Some (across varying price/quality ranges) that Mozillians have had good experiences staying at include:
- Holiday Inn Paris Opera - Grands Boulevards (****)
- Hotel 34B (***)
- Hôtel Vivienne (**)
- Millenium Opera Very nice, is wheelchair accessible too!
There is a laundry nearby at 37, rue de Trévise (directions from office). It's mostly self-explanatory (and has good english signage). The one thing that is unlabeled is the detergent/softener dispensing machine. In France, laundry detergent is generally (as it is at this laundromat) in small foil-covered bricks. The packets are something else (probably softener, maybe bleach). The money input for all the machines the laundromat takes either coins or bills.
Good things nearby
There is a good bakery at 26 r. du Faubourg Montmartre. directions from office
