The Music Hotel is located in what was already a hotel before. However, there is nothing left of this so-called "economical" establishment. The only thing you might recognise (if you knew the place) are the foundations and the stairwell. It's hard to imagine that artists like David Guetta, Bob Sinclair and Joachim Garraud (all patrons of the hotel) all once played here. The lobby-bar sets the tone as soon as you walk in: loud trendy music, bright red padded sofas, gold records, and posters of current and former stars. Although the younger generation might be at home here, the style will probably not suit everyone's tastes! That being said, this style isn't all-encompassing, since the guest rooms, recording studio and breakfast room/bar (we love the multi-functionality of the rooms) are a lot more sober. Located behind the lobby, the Gainsbar opens out onto a little English garden where you can admire the colourful graffiti that honours the patrons. Although the spot was conceived to be able to hold concerts or welcome the press, the limited size of the area means that not many people can fit in here... The hotel did find some room to put in a whirlpool tub, perhaps with the hope of creating a real (but small) spa one day.
