Wi-Fi Connection Does Not Work in Paris, France


Case 7: Your Wi-Fi Connection is Down

You need to access your laptop for work and your hotel/apartments wi-fi connection is down. In Paris, free wi-fi access is available within every city hall building or "mairie". Or, for a more comfortable setting with a great free signal and plugs for recharging, find a Columbus Cafe. Columbus Cafes are scattered throughout Paris (think the French Starbucks - billed as the "First French Expresso Bar"), and serve Starbucks-like expresso drinks (machiattos, etc.). Not worth a visit except if you're "jonesing" for a free hit of wi-fi. Go to the second floor to "hook up" with the other laptop users.

Select Columbus Cafe Locations in Tourist Areas:

Marais: 25, Rue Vieille du Temple, 4e - Métro : Hôtel de Ville

Latin Quarter: 21, rue Soufflot - 5e - Métro : Luxembourg

St. Germain des Pres - 24, rue Saint-André des Arts, 6e - Métro : Saint-Michel

Montmartre: 8 Rue de Steinkerque, 18e - Métro : Anvers:

Eiffel Tower: 81 rue St-Dominique, 7e - Métro : Champs de Mars
