3 star hotel

4.4

A sybaritic historic pastiche for hiding out in the Marais.

The sybaritic Bourg-Tibourg belongs to the tentacular Costes family and like the ever-fashionable Hôtel Costes was decorated by Jacques Garcia, but I find the atmosphere here much less show-off and the staff young and helpful. Thick velvets, striped satins and rich colours, tassels and fringes, lancet-backed chairs and carved doors give the sensation of walking into a private Gothic Revival melodrama, so if you like Garcia's OTT take on historic fantasy, then it's for you; minimalists steer clear.

Location

In the heart of the Marais hub, well placed for Marais bars, shopping and the [node:168632]. Rue du Bourg-Tibourg is a fairly inconspicuous side street though the bars can get a little noisy at weekends.

Bedrooms

Bedrooms are quite small and dimly lit but that only increases the impression of cosseting, with their luscious fabrics, tasselled lamps and plush upholstered stools. There are even little Gothic niches by the beds, set off by the occasional tongue-in-cheek leopardspot here or there. Salubrious bathrooms and bath products.

Public areas

There's a plush lounge and a small, planted courtyard where you can have drinks in summer.

Eating and drinking

Classy though not cheap continental breakfast in the cellar. Drinks can be served in the lounge or tiny courtyard.

Service

Staff are young, enthusiastic and helpful.

Who stays there

A hip young international set. Trendies and new romantics.
