Fodor's Expert Review Hôtel Crayon

25 rue du Bouloi, Paris, Île-de-France, 75001, France

Managed by artists, this hotel near the Louvre distinguishes itself with an eclectic pop-art decor—expect an unusual canvas of local and international guests that's just as colorful. Rooms are quiet havens in a somewhat overwhelming palette of purples, reds, and blue. You'll find walk-in showers, designer toiletries, adjustable beds, flat-screen TVs, and free Wi-Fi, but not overly spacious bathrooms or closets. The lobby-lounge has an honor bar and shelves of books to read or exchange.

PROS

  • Hand-painted graffiti walls
  • Very friendly staff
  • Curated and curious mix of modern objets d'art

CONS

  • Small bathrooms
  • Bold design might not be to all tastes
  • Lobby lounge lacks coziness and warmth
