Well placed for the Marais gay bar scene and fashion boutiques or for checking out the latest exhibition at the [node:168632]. It's located on a busy street corner but double glazing keeps rooms relatively quiet.
The 58 rooms come in soothing tones of brown... and brown; patterned wallpapers lift the tempo in some, with good lighting, use of mirrors and stylish modern bathrooms. Try to reserve one of the larger superior rooms if possible.
Hip yet relaxed. Light pours in through the shopfront facade into the suave open plan-ground floor, which is furnished with chocolate and lime-green armchairs and outsize lamps and divided into areas where you can browse art books, surf the web or relax over a cocktail; there's even a tiny, glass-sided planted courtyard.
Eating and drinking
Breakfast near the "virtual" fire in the lounge. Try out the cocktail bar in the evening, which is also an insider address of Parisians in the know.
Small yet well-equipped gym and sauna in the cellar.
Professional and friendly, with attentive owner Véronique Turnel directly on hand.
