“Quality Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Awesome boutique hotel, with very good design. We were given the cocoon room, but couldn't upgrade to a better room as the hotel was fully-booked. Room was pretty small, but that was expected. Apart from the fact that there was only a pull-out table and not a desk, I can't find anything else to complain about the room.

Location of the hotel is pretty good as well, walking distance to Lourve, which makes it nearly walking distance to anywhere else (provided you can take walking in Paris, seeing how the streets are wider than many other European cities such as Italy/UK). Hotel was a bit hard to find cos of the small and not at all obvious signage. But you should be find if you've load Google Maps on your phone.

Staff were excellent and very helpful. Even calling up the restaurant beforehand to check if they're serving the type of food I want and if they are open at a particular time.

All in all, nothing much to complain about. Worth booking!

i would definitely recommend the hotel for its design and location.

The room that we chose was the odyssey room, which had a transparent like shower, loved the graffiti like art work in the toilet, and the bed was amazingly comfortably.

location wise it is 5 mins or less from anything you want to do in the area.

My girlfriend and I spent 4 nights in this freshly-renovated hotel. The design is modern, even futuristic, far from the usual 19th century style. The room was tiny, but still functional and was provided with a very large and comfortable bed: we rarely slept so well! The room is well sound-isolated and you can change the room temperature to your liking. It was also a pleasure to have a very modern bathroom with a great shower and good toilets, that is rare enough to be pointed out.

The personal was friendly and helped us carrying our luggage to the very last floor (the lift was blocked for half an hour or so).

The location is great: you can reach le Louvres in 5 minutes for instance, plenty of restaurants and bakeries around.

We highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for an unique experience in Paris and for people who don't need a lot of place in their room.

Went with a group the other night to try out the cocktail bar at the hotel. The bar tender, and drinks, were superb. Great skills on show in cocktail making and was very happy to explain to us all what he was doing and the history of the drinks and brands. The decor was very new and fitted the venue well. It is down a little side street so make sure ou get directions or know where you are oing, but do visit if in the area.

I stayed in hotel O for 1 night. The hotel is in a small quite street near the Louvre. Also the hotel is very small. The entrance looks trendy but there is no foyer. In the back you can have cocktails, they are really very nice, but there is loud music, it is a great spot for young people. The rooms and the corridors are also very small. Each room has a different colour. My room was green, the walls are green, the curtains are green and the small batchroom was white. There is no chair, no table,no pedestal, really nothing, only a bed and a small cupboard. Near the bed there is an adapter for your I-phone, but it didn' work for my Samsung.

Room Tip: when you like trendy and small its a great hotel but not for me !

I am always slightly apprehensive about Parisian hotels as over the years I have stayed in a great many 'fashionable' and boutique' hotels and have always been so disappointed with the hotel, the amount spent on the hotel always seemed irrelevant. Therefore, this time I got down to my absolute essential criteria - top quality bed, sheets, bathroom, central location and a quiet area away from main streets.

Therefore, my opinion is very high of this hotel as they fulfilled all. The bed was absolutely divine, sheets snowy white and high thread count, the room was sound proofed (recommend the 3-5th floor) so not only was there no sound from outside but nor was there any from the inside of the hotel. The shower was perfect and large. In addition, the staff were very friendly and helpful. The place is immaculate as it is new and although the rooms are small, these have been cleverly designed so that all your paraphenalia can be hidden in cupboards and the focus is comfort. The A/C was so sensitive and worked immediately giving a perfect temperature.

I did not eat breakfast in the hotel so cannot comment but ordered club sandwiches and drinks as part of room service. These were very fresh and arrived within 20 minutes.

Room Tip: Higher floors are totally silent, a real cocoon.
