Expert review of Hôtel Joyce

One of the most imaginative of Paris's new design hotels with a cool urban vibe.

Stylish, contemporary and very Parisian, this sleek new design hotel, in a building that was fully refurbished in 2009, is full of fun details and tongue-in-cheek touches from architect Philippe Maidenberg that lift it out of the modern minimalist norm and give it a character of its own.

Location: 

Between theatreland and Pigalle, it's easy access uphill to Montmartre and the nightspots and music venues of Pigalle and a walk downhill to Opéra and the grand department stores. This is also an interesting corner of authentic lived-in Paris, a mix of the shabby and the reborn, with small shops and ateliers nearby.

Bedrooms: 

The 44 rooms are fun and comfortable with high-quality beds, small but practical desk area, a collage of mirrors and pin-striped wardrobes, though what really gives these rooms character is the brilliant graphic touch of the trompe l'oeil bookshelves, bedhead and moulded cornice drawn on the wall behind the bed and customised for each room. Rooms overlook the street or courtyards and an interesting très Parisian rooftops behind.

Public areas: 

Plenty of wit and style here: a reception desk made out of Eiffel Towers, fibreoptics sparkling in the lobby parquet and the striking glazed atrium-style breakfast room/lounge has an industrial vibe with a patchwork of mirrors and a row of chairs made out of old car seats.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is a generous buffet in the stylish glazed-over courtyard, the hotel tries to use organic produce where possible. Although the bar is not licensed, you can help yourself to tea, coffee or soft drinks all day.

Service: 

Staff are welcoming and keen to show off their brand new hotel.

Who stays there: 

It's only been open since the end of 2009 so hard to say yet, but I anticipate a mix of tourists and business travellers.

Pros: 
Great design

Bar is unlicensed
