This wonderful little 3 star hotel offers a soft, colourful decor, and designer furniture, all while staying very simple, and with the welcome you'll receive you could be forgiven for thinking you were staying at a guest house. The communal areas of the hotel are very pleasant indeed and there's nothing better than relaxing with a coffee on the comfortable bench seats in the lounge.

    Location 6.39 /10

    7/10
    This fine hotel stands on the very busy Boulevard Richard Lenoir, which heads north from the Place de la Bastille. This being the case, it benefits from a prime location just a few minutes' walk from this very trendy, lively part of town that attracts hoards of people who come here for a stroll or to enjoy the many bars and restaurants in the evening. It is also not far from the many museums of the city's 3rd arrondissement, and even the famous Place des Vosges: those who like a little culture won't be disappointed. The hotel is also located near the Cirque d'Hiver and the Bataclan, two legendary Parisian venues, but if you don't fancy venturing too far at night, the Comédie Bastille theatre is just a few streets away and always has something fun on the bill. The Bréguet Sabin metro station on line 5 is within easy reach of the many other metro lines that pass under the Place de la Bastille. Boulevard Richard Lenoir is also a lovely place for a stroll, particularly as it runs alongside the very charming Saint Martin Canal to the north.

    Accommodation 7.70 /10

    This intimate little hotel has only 37 guest rooms, all furnished with minimalist, very futuristic, and particularly tasteful bench seats, armchairs, and desks created by an interior designer. This being the case, the guest rooms, just like the ground floor of the hotel, ooze personality. You can't help but notice, either, that in a very original little twist, the colourful ceilings in the guest rooms, from lime green to orange, reflect on the white walls to bring a welcome touch of warmth to the otherwise cold-looking surroundings. The rooms here come in two categories, namely Standard and Superior, with the latter being slightly larger and able to accommodate up to 3 people. The decor in the guest rooms is really very low-key and all of the rooms are pretty similar, with the same combination of wood and very modern shades of grey throughout. The metallic aspect featured in the decorative details, such as the beautiful light fittings, mirrors, and even the frames surrounding the sliding bathroom doors, is also a common theme throughout the hotel. The bathrooms, meanwhile, are done out in natural, robust materials, including slate floors and marble wash basins. In a nutshell, this is a truly exceptional, modern hotel that oozes charm and features some unique materials in its decor. On the practical side, the amenities include a non-wall-mounted hair-dryer, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, a safe, and a minibar.

    Overview 6.95 /10

    The decor here is tasteful and oozes personality, elegance, and above all, warmth, something which becomes apparent as soon as you set foot inside this wonderful hotel. It's not one of those cold-feeling places where the decor is truly sublime but rather a welcoming living space designed with the well-being of its guests in mind. The soft colours and abundant presence of day-to-day items, such as vases, books, and plants, bring a lovely warmth to the surroundings, where you'll soon feel right at home. The owners aim to make travellers feel as if they are staying with friends, providing a simple yet appealing setting. The decor in the communal areas is also superb. The entire ground floor is open and you can move from one area to another as if it were a large lounge. In reference to the history of this neighbourhood, which was once home to a number of workshops, the architect has maintained the metal supporting girders present about the place, and the stairwell curls around a splendid metal structure (and fine work of art) dating back to the early 20th century. The breakfast room is done out in very mild shades of green and features smart dark wooden furniture, not to mention a fully functioning ethanol fireplace. The pleasant lounge area, meanwhile, features various pieces of furniture designed by the architect of the hotel. The hotel also boasts a pretty little inner courtyard with plenty of greenery.

    To know

    The advantage of staying at a Best Western hotel is that they are all very different from one another and are more often than not known for their charm and beautiful decor. This establishment is no exception to the rule, having recently been fully renovated by an interior designer.

      Another boutique design from the people who brought you Le Chat Noir and Le Color hotels, the Standard is just as successful in its own way. Unlike the other two, however, this hotel's style may not be to everyone's taste, being a touch more off-beat than its cousins. Well-located, innovatively appointed and daring, it offers a breath of fresh air from the busy Parisian streets. The Standard is the perfect base for a short stay in the French capital and comes with the easyvoyage.co.uk seal of approval!

      This is a hotel full of French style in which no copies or reproductions will be tolerated. The Bristol is one of the few luxury hotels in Paris that belongs to a European family (German) rather than one of the great families of Asia or the United Arab Emirates. Stylish, classy and refined, the Bristol holds great importance in the quality and authenticity of its features and materials. Its gourmet restaurant attracts a demanding clientele that is fond of excellent cuisine.

      The George V is one of the most prestigious Parisian palaces in the city. You barely have to cross the threshold before realising you are entering a hotel in which luxury, perfection and indulgence are the name of the game. Boasting rooms fit for a princess, impressive lounges and a Michelin-starred restaurant, the George V ticks all the boxes when it comes to satisfying even the most demanding of guests. The interior designer Pierre Yves Rochon oversaw the complete refurbishment of the building in 1997, and has since then continued to make improvements to the decor in the 18th Century style.

      The latest Parisian luxury hotel, the Shangri-La will seduce a demanding clientele that will know how to appreciate the richly ornate Empire style of this particular hotel. Nothing more can be said about the lengths taken to find the materials, designs, and other accessories that contribute to recreating the atmosphere of the 19th century, while at the same time offering the comfort and modernity of the 21st century. This extremely shiny and ornate Empire style may scare away some potential guests, however, it is still a real privilege to stay in this residence previously owned by a prince, the great nephew of Napoleon.

      • Location 8.85

      Inaugurated on 28 February 2012, the W Paris - Opera has finally opened in the City of Light. The Starwood brand linked to fashion and trends thus has its own prestigious establishment in Paris.
      Nestled in a 19th century building, the hotel is in a great location. Design and modernity, with a conceptual touch, all come together here. Its designer is in the best position to explain why, since we're not sure it's really clear otherwise, but the W Paris-Opera is centred around the theme The Spark. The establishment thus defines itself as a "spark", creating a fictitious connection between the very first W hotel in New York and its newest sibling in Paris.

      At the heart of the Opera district, the W can already rely on its guests who are fans of the brand and hopes that word of mouth will make it the place to be in the area; not just for its rooms but for its restaurant and bar as well.
