Expert review of Hôtel Sezz

A radical design experience in smart residential Paris.

The Haussmannian stone facade gives little hint of the radical contemporary style behind it. Yet this 26-room hotel by hot French designer Christophe Pillet has quickly become a fashionable destination for the hardcore design brigade.

Location: 

In the smart residential 16th arrondissement (hence Sezz), near the upmarket shops of Passy. Although it feels a bit out of the centre, it's actually only a short walk to Trocadéro and the Chaillot museums. The Eiffel Tower is just across the river.

Bedrooms: 

Bedrooms are undeniable design statements, with walls dramatically clad in rough-cut grey stone, dark wood floors, island beds in chrome and stitched leather in the centre of the room, and shaggy carpets in red or olive to soften all the grey, and creamy lamp-vases in handblown Murano glass. The bathrooms separated by a glass wall are gorgeous, including some with big square baths for two. It's an impressive design statement, although I find the overall effect rather hard and masculine. The two-room Eiffel Suite has views of the Eiffel Tower.

Public areas: 

Two small salons on either side of the entrance and a quirky black and fuschia pink bar at the rear.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast is a buffet with fairtrade products. The bar specialises in Veuve Cliquot Champagne and the hotel has an arrangement with several local restaurants to order in meals.

Leisure facilities: 

There's a colourful mini-spa in the basement.

Service: 

Keeping up the rigorous design stance, rather than a reception desk, guests have a 'personal butler' at the end of a cordless phone, which is either a case of wonderfully personalised service or slightly intimidating.
