Fodor's Review

Managed by artists, this hotel near the Louvre and Palais-Royal distinguishes itself with an eclectic pop-art decor—expect an unusual canvas of local and international guests that's just as colorful. Look for the oversize pencil against hand-painted graffiti walls and curious mix of modern objets d'art. Rooms are quiet havens in a somewhat overwhelming palette of bold purples, reds, and blue. Expect walk-in showers, designer toiletries, adjustable beds, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, but not overly spacious bathrooms or closets. The suite has a freestanding claw-foot bathtub. Offering an honesty bar, the lobby-lounge has shelves of books to read or exchange.
