We booked this hotel as part of an anniversary trip to Paris after reading a small blurb about it in a popular travel magazine. We'd been to Paris several times but had never stayed in the 1st arrondissement before. The location was ideal for a 4-day visit because you are close to everything - Louvre, Marais, Opera, etc. We almost never took even took the Metro because we could just walk. The staff of the hotel are particularly nice and helpful - even advising via email about local yoga studios before we arrived. We had a junior suite and found it quite large by European standards. It was light-filled and we loved the funky mix of old/new and the unique color scheme. Breakfast was not included in our rate, but we did eat there twice and found it to be standard fare (which, in Paris, means very nice). We may be going back to Paris soon for other reasons and we'll definitely try to book here again.

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Crayon is a new version of the guesthouse, the home of a Parisian artist who welcomes you and invites you to spend a pleasant and colourful time! The Crayon is a poetic, bucolic, artistic hotel which delights in unusual juxtapositions: furniture and objects from second-hand shops are reborn as works of art in everyday life in a blend of styles and genres...The Crayon is a patchwork of ideas that takes the form of a rich, never-ending dialogue between subjects, materials and colours in each of the different 27 rooms.You will find a few unusual guests in the hotel...at the end of a corridor, in the lift, or a bathroom... You will also find the soul of the city, or rather an artist's interpretation of Paris, a panorama along a corridor, a magnificent view over a bed-head; a monument or building, it is as if the city is breathing. ... more less
