Expert review of Hotel Mayet

Colourful and breezy, Paris's original budget design hotel.

I discovered this hotel by chance a few years ago, when I was visiting a craft atelier up the street and immediately loved its combination of original modern style behind a classic white stucco facade and well thought-out details. It's stood the test of time well with an atmosphere that is unpretentious and easygoing.

Location: 

On an interesting local street in a relatively untouristed part of Montparnasse. It's an easy walk to Les Invalides and the Musée Rodin, and very near to Duroc metro for decent connections elsewhere.

Bedrooms: 

The 23 bedrooms are all variants on the same striking red and grey theme, cleverly using practical off-the-shelf items – a big clock on the wall, metal storage tins, little filing cabinets that serve as bedside tables – to create a stylish contemporary style. There's no air conditioning but a propeller-style ventilator in each room, and white-tiled bathrooms that are tiny but spotless. Go for streetside rooms, those on the fifth floor have a small balcony, the sixth floor is mansarded.

Public areas: 

The pleasant ground-floor lounge area has squashy sofas, club chairs and colourful graffiti-style paintings – one by André, before the days of Hôtel Amour and his nightclub empire. WiFi throughout the hotel or a computer downstairs.

Eating and drinking: 

Breakfast (included in the room price) is a convivial help yourself affair around a communal table in the cellar.

Service: 

Helpful reception staff with a blackboard of suggestions for where to eat nearby.
