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

Lovely friendly feel, not stuffy like some hotels. So glad we included breakfast with scrambled eggs, sausages but usual juices, fruit salad, yogurt and pastries. Breakfast until 11am which was a bonus. Found the bed/bedding so comfy and great having surround speakers and fridge. Coffee machine with pods but only espresso - missed having larger cups and milk but all available at the free coffee machine in reception. Smart bathroom with lovely smelling toiletries but missed dedicated shampoo and no conditioner. Couldn't get any UK channels on the TV. Easy walk to attractions or pick up an electric scooter! Walked to a local restaurant Amalfi which was fab and so reasonable. 24 hour reception

A friendly hotel with clean, comfortable rooms, excellent housekeeping and very personable staff. The breakfast selection is not huge but is certainly adequate for a continental breakfast at a boutique hotel; everything we sampled was delicious and fresh, and we particularly recommend the pastries and juices. There is a free nespresso machine in the room and also a free drinks machine in reception that does coffees, hot chocolate and a nice selection of teas. We made good use of this and recommend taking a hot drink out into the peaceful courtyard. The room itself was of a good size, and we felt very fairly priced compared to other hotels we had seen in similar locations. We were amazed at how quiet the hotel and surrounding streets were at night. The location is also very good. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes within a short walk of the hotel, and Montmartre is around 30 minutes away on foot. There are several metro stations nearby, as well as Gare Saint Lazare, and all of the main tourist attractions can be reached on foot / by public transport within 30 minutes. We always felt safe around the hotel, including late at night.

Dear Alice, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at the Idol Hôtel :) We are more than glad to see how much you enjoyed your stay with us ! As you said, our breakfast is not huge as our lobby doesn't offer many space, but we do our best to offer fresh quality products witha wide range of options, so everybody can find what they are looking for in a breakfast :) Indeed the coffee machine in the Lobby is very nice after a long walk in the parisian street ! Indeed, we are not far from some touristy sights as Montmartre, Triumph arc and Opera Garnier, and if you need to get to Le Louvre Museum or the Latin Quarter there are many metro lines close to the hotel ;) All the staff members thank you for your kind words towards them, we hope to welcome you back for another groovy stay ! Musically yours, Mélodie Front Office Manaer

Excellent Service, reception was so helpful and nice. The room was clean and nicely decorated. Near to a small supermarket and few cafes. Also near to metropolitan subway station. The street where the hotel is situated is quite. The room is a bit small for 150+ Euro but probably because it’s peak season.

Amazing staff, very clean hotel. 70’s decor, very well-maintained. Great coffee machine and breakfast in the morning! Loved the hotel, it’s a bit of a walk from the major sights, but the staff made It well worth it! The 2 ladies that looked after breakfast - amazing, the reception staff - amazing, the cleaning staff - amazing! I will return! We were in “light my fire” room and had very decent space by European hotel standards.

Dear Andreab0901, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at the Idol Hotel. We are so glad to see you enjoyed your stay amongst us ! Indeed as you said, sometimes there's a bit of a walk for the Eiffel Tower or the Latin Quarter as they are not in our area and on the right bank, but if you take the metro it is pretty fast actually :) We are very happy that enjoyed the free coffee machine and the breakfast ! For the room, the Light My Fire room is the best room if you want a cosy atmosphere but some space as well,as this is a deluxe room this one is 21m2 so quite nice for an haussmanian building in Paris :) All the staff members thank you for your kind words towards the staff members, we hope you enjouyed your stay as much s we enjoyed welcoming you. We hope to see you soon for another groovy experience ! ♫ Musically yours, Mélodie Front Office Manager

Our stay was excellent. We were surprised with chocolate and rose petals, and loved our adorable balcony and the tea/coffee station. Every inch of our room was smartly planned. The bed was comfy and the soap/shampoo/conditioner/lotion was nice.

Agatha and Melodie, the extremely helpful and friendly employees, made our stay exceptional. Both ladies answered all our questions, had great suggestions for shopping, dining transportation etc. They both speak and understand English very well and that is greatly appreciated. The award for best employee under pressure must go to Melodie and here's why... the night before we left Paris we could not open our room safe to get our passports. I went downstairs to the desk and told the gentleman that was working that we needed help to open our safe because we needed our passports we were leaving first thing in the morning at about 8. He said he couldn't help us it was a girl in the morning that had "the key" to open our room safe. I took him at his word and at 7 in the morning I went down to the desk and ask him when the girl would be in so that we could get our passports and immediately get a taxi to the airport he said she would be in at 7:30. I sat and waited in the lounge area. At exactly 7:23 Melodie came into work and at 7:23 the man working the night shift sprinted out of the door. I explained to Melodie what I needed. She immediately started looking for any other employee because the need 2 people to open a guests safe, one to stay at the desk and another to open the safe. Since the nigh guy (Ranain) had run out of the door even though he knew I needed my safe opened Melodie was all alone. She looked for the housekeeping staff but they weren't in yet so she asked if she could take my safe down to the desk so she could do both jobs, which she did. We got our passport she call us a taxi for the airport and all was well! Thank you Melodie!!

Dear 213nadjanxx, We thank you for sharing your experience at Idol Hôtel. We are so thrilled to see you enjoyed your say ! Our housekeeper is very careful on cleanliness, It's very important for us that you have a clean room during your stay. All the staff members thank you for your kind words towards them, it was a pleasure to welcome you in our groovy hotel. Unfortunately the garbage men come very early in the morning and we can't control the noise despite our double glazed window, this situation is out of reach for us as it's not a property of the hotel, we apologize for the inconvenience though. Regarding the breakfast, the rate might have appeared too high, but we have handmade scrambled eggs, fresh croissants and baguettes, and some good quality products with a large choice, but if you prefer to enjoy the Parisian llife in its fullness there are many bakeries around the hotel where you can find a good french breakfast :) We hope to have the chance to welcome you again at the Idol Hotel for a better experience. Musically yours, Mélodie Front Office Manager
