“An absolute gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

What a place!

We arrived in Paris as the 1st stop of our month long European holiday and stayed in Fabric for 3 days. The staff at the front desk were amazing, kind , helpful and spoke perfect English. They were extremely helpful in recommending places to eat, things to do and places to visit.

The hotel itself is a gorgeous boutique style hotel with the most amazing decor and furnishings. The rooms are a little on the small side but big enough for us to fit our 2 huge suitcases. The shower and bathroom is huge and the L'occitane products a nice added touch. There are small lights in between ech bathroom wall tile which we thought was unique and gorgeous.

In the lobby there is a communal Ipad available. There is also a table with a coffee machine, water and small snacks available 24/7 for you to either have there or take to your room. My partner and I to this day have not had coffee better than the 'cafe noisette' from that machine!! It was amazing!!! And we are fussy Aussie coffee connoiseurs too I might add.

Location is perfect in the funky, trendy suburb of Bastille. So many restaurants, bars and cafes around. Only 100-200m away from St Ambroise metro station.

We loved it here so much that we booked Hotel Fabric for our 1 night stop over in Paris on our last leg of the trip back to Sydney. On that night we had breakfast, which I must say was so fresh and delicious.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for 1st class service.

Room Tip: Any of the 'double' rooms would be better as there is an extra couch which can be used as a...

My husband and I stayed at this hotel 4th-6th July in a Club room. Friendly welcome and staff fluent in English as well as French which my husband appreciated. Nicely designed foyer/breakfast room with complimentary tea/coffee/snacks all day and honesty bar at night.. Modern clean rooms. Not small for Paris standard. Comfortable bed. L'Occitane amenities and great rainfall shower! (which made up for having no bath). Breakfast was typical of a continental Paris buffet with boiled eggs, cold cuts, fruit, yoghurt and fresh bread/vienoisseries. Not in the heart of tourist Paris but walk to metro and short ride to Montmatre, Opera and Champs Elysees. Staff had good recommendations for restaurants. Wifi was adequate and air conditioning functioning well. Overall good value for Paris. Thank you to the team. We will be back soon!

The room was lovely, very fresh and new. The bathrooms are very funky and the bed was really comfortable. The rooms aren't huge but they have open windows and everything you could need. The hotel also has a very nice steam room downstairs which you can book. It has lovely twinkly lights in the ceiling and is a nice place to wind down after a long flight.
I arrived at the hotel at about 9am. The hotel doesn't usually allow people to take up rooms until the afternoon but they were very accommodating and asked me to sit and wait for an hour in the breakfast space, have a nice free cappuccino and they raced to get my room ready.
Cyril, one of the staff on reception, was especially fantastic. We were uncertain of whether our TGV travel to Poitiers the next day would go ahead (there was a strike on at the time) and he spent more than an hour helping us out and finding alternatives for us. He was really kind and found a solution for us that worked.
The breakfasts are very nice and everything is small and boutiquey.
I found it a little bit complicated finding the metro lines. It is about 10 minutes walk to Oberkampf station (allowing some time to get lost). So the hotel is a little bit out of the way from main tourist things but this means it is a bit quieter. I would definitely stay here again.

We choose this boutique hotel and we did a good decision.The hotel looks much better than in the pictures Trendy nice and chic hotel, well decorated wonderful furnishing.Amazing bathroom like in a SPA. You can use also the Hamam which is equipped with everything you need. The rooms are big enough comparing rooms in Paris.The staff friendly. You can serve a coffee/ cold drink during 24 hours. All of these make our stay lovely.

we just completed a stay at Hotel Fabric. we chose the hotel due great reviews on this site, free internet, and the presence of a fitness room. the hotel is a converted factory. as a result, the rooms are a bit small but comfortable. I would describe it as a small, boutique facility. water and tea are free and available all day. breakfast is about 15 euros. the main issue to consider is the location. this hotel is located away from most major tourist attractions (Louvre, Arc du Triumph, Eiffel Tower), which may be good or bad, depending on what your trip entails. the good thing about the location is that the neighborhood is quiet and the St. Ambrose subway stop is an easy one block walk down the street. However, if you are a family like us who wanted to be out all day, it was not a real option to return to your hotel mid day or afternoon and then go back out in the evening. we left the hotel in the AM and returned late at night.

Room Tip: 3rd or 4th floor rooms even quieter.

Dear guest,
Thank you for taking your time and for writing this nice comment here on Tripadvisor.
We are glad to know that all the services of our hotel have met your expectations.
I’d like to touch a word about the location of our hotel. We are sorry that you found it a little far from the main areas of Paris. But, as one of our guest told “Paris has great public transport”.
The metro stop 'St. Ambroise and Oberkampf are just few meters from the hotel. The line N° 9 of the metro takes you in 10 minutes to the most important areas of Paris: Eiffel Tour, l’Arc de Triomphe, Champs Elysées, and Galleries Lafayette. Our hotel is situated in the 11th district of Paris. It is a very trendy area with a lot of nice bars, restaurants and shops.

Hope that for your next Parisian stay you will choose our hotel once again,
Regards,

So happy that trip advisor led me to choosing this hotel! We stayed 8 nights and I was sad to leave! The staff was professional, helpful, friendly and on-hand at all hours of the day/night. Loved the decor and the coffee/cookies available 24/7 in the lobby area. There's even a gym on the bottom floor if anyone had the time to use it. The rooms were spacious enough and we had three girls with BIG suitcases. It was clean, chic and the shower was amazing! Felt like a spa experience and much roomier than any bathroom I'd experienced in Europe. It felt good to return back to our room after a long day of sightseeing. The hotel was walking distance from a few metros as well as the trendy area of Bastille. Overall, I can't recommend this hotel enough! Five stars all the way!

Staff were friendly, close enough to a number of metro stations and the Place de Republique for comfort. You get free coffee in the lounge area, which has a good atmosphere. Rooms are well done but a touch small. You also have free use of the hotel hammam, which is a relaxing way to unwind after a day of walking around. Only downsides are the area right by the hotel is a bit mixed, the rooms could be bigger and it's not the most central.
