Expert review of Le 20 Prieuré

Giant photos of Paris certainly remind you where you are at this fresh, fun new hotel.

This district near République used to be full of nondescript lodgings for travelling salesmen and the totally revamped 20 Prieuré is just one sign of renewal.

Location: 

On a side street near République, this is not the most scenic part of Paris but it's ideal for flitting between the rue Oberkampf bars and the trendy shops and galleries of the Haut-Marais, and there are excellent metro connections for everywhere.

Bedrooms: 

Striking blown-up photos of Parisian landmarks – the overhead metro, the dome of Les Invalides, ironwork of the Eiffel Tower – covering the wall behind the bed leave no doubt as to which city you are staying in, as well as creating an illusion of space. Elsewhere, warm two-tone curtains, white duvets, and practical desk and wardrobe keep the look stylish and make the most of limited space.

Public areas: 

Original and modern, a reception desk that looks like a white bubble and colourful paintings, sprinkled with modern design classics: little Flos lamps over the desk and Mies van de Rohe Barcelona chairs, although it's a pity there's not a more spacious lounge. They've also cleverly created a stylish breakfast room all in slinky striped wood and big lamps in what could have been a dingy basement.

Eating and drinking: 

Buffet breakfast in the basement.

Service: 

Friendly bilingual staff.
