The Idol Hotel is a place unlike any other. More than a hotel, the Idol is a sensorial experience that implies your different senses, the sight as much as the touch and the hearing. It provides the emotion of a design hotel but with something else: sound and groove. Composed by Yann Gasparini, jazz, soul and funk music lover and painted by Julie Gauthron, the funkiest decorator in Parisian hotel industry, the Idol Hotel is a joyful hymn to Black Music from the 60's to the 80's. Located in the 8th district of Paris, neighborhood appreciated by the music lovers, near the national Academy of Paris and the Opera Garnier, this boutique hotel offers a musical and original design experience, allied to a comfort and high-end services

This hotel seems to have been newly renovated and has a clear disco/funk theme which i loved. It made a welcome change to the usual, personality less business hotels i stay in. Staff were friendly and professional Would recommend this hotel!

Dear KJG780, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at Idol Hotel. The hotel is 6 years old so we are not that very new, but we do some work in order to keep the Hotel in a good condition :). As you said, we don't choose the Idol Hotel for the soft decoration and the calm atmosphere, Idol Hotel is disco and groovy as you said, all the details are here to welcome you in the 70's from the disco ball to the turntable in the lobby :). All the staff members thank you for your kind words towards them, it was a pleasure to welcome you in our funky universe. We hope to see you soon for another groovy stay ♫ ! Musically yours, Mélodie Front Office Manager

Very happy with our stay, nice room given we took one of the cheaper ones, good breakfast, clean room, pleasant staff and overall the location worked for us. All I missed after very long days out was a bit more choice on the TV channels but its not a huge loss. Oh and a supermarket on the same street is always handy. I would stay again.

Staff were very friendly and helpful, decor was unique and breakfast was very nice. The location is also very central so sites were in walking distance, but the hotel is still situated in a relatively quiet area so we were not disturbed in the night. An excellent visit!

Excellent hotel with really funky and groovy design, great staff and a good location. The room was a bit smaller than I expected but the decor more than made up for this. Everyrhint from the colour scheme to the lighting was different - groovy is the best word for it. There were still covid restrictions in place when we visited and breakfast was available in the dining room, in the courtyard or they would take it to your room.

Dear Brian D, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at Idol Hotel. We are more than thrilled to see you enjoyed your stay as much as we enjoyed welcoming you :) Indeed the rooms might appear "small" when you are not used to it but most of the parisian hotels in old haussmannian buildings have small rooms, therefore we really tried to make the room funky and groovy so you can enjoy your room after a long day of walk into the parisian streets. We are very glad that you appreciated it ! Regarding the breakfasts, as you mentioned there were still restrictions during the dates of your reservation so we tried to offset this inconvenience. We hope to see you soon for another groovy stay ! Musically yours, Mélodie - Front Office Manager

I stayed here with my parents for a night en route to Rouen. We had two rooms that were advertised as interconnecting. In fact, this meant two separate hotel bedrooms, but they shared a hallway. The rooms themselves were lovely. Mine was small- perfect for one but might have been a squeeze for two people. Our second bedroom was much bigger. Décor was eccentric, and beds were comfy. Bluetooth speaker and coffee machine were nice touches. The local area is a short walk to Opéra Garnier and about 20 mins walk to Place de la Concorde so great for sightseeing. Would definitely stay again.

Dear Caroline S, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at Idol Hotel. We are thrilled to see you enjoyed your stay. Indeed our connected rooms are connected via a small hallway so it's like an appartment :) Well, the Joy room you had might be a squeeze for two people as this category of room is a single room. We are pleased to see you liked the atmosphere and decoration of the rooms ! As you said, we are close to some touristy areas within a walking distance which is very convenient ! We hope to see you soon for another groovy experience ! Musically yours, Mélodie - Front desk team
