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

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

Hotel was close to everything with cheap Uber rides. The rooms were small though. Breakfast is good but I was charged extra for some stuff that I didn’t get charged for if I ate downstairs. The staff was polite and i felt very safe when coming in at night.

I had a VERY compact room, but I was staying on business and just one night so it was fine for my needs. The bed and pillows were very good, my only criticism is that there was not a holder for the shower head at head height, so you have to hold it to wash your hair. I find this in many French hotels though.

Dear yenugudhati, We thank you for having taken the time to share your experience at Idol Hotel. The room might look very compact as you said but it's a standard size in Paris as we cannot change the Haussmanian Buildings, most of the hotel rooms in Paris are not very big, but the room is very cosy and very convenient for business trips as you said :) Indeed there is no holder for the shower head as there is a rain shower if you want to wash your hair. We hope to see you soon so you can probably try a bigger rroom ;) Musically yours, Mélodie - Front desk team

This hotel was absolutely stunning!! Such a cool jazz theme and really friendly relaxed vibe to match! The room was always clean and our room was perfect with a cute balcony! We went for our anniversary and they even added a beautiful touch by putting rose petals and chocolates on the bed!! The breakfast was delicious too with a variation of English and continental plates! Very near multiple metro stations, equally easy for walking around too! Such a memorable experience, thank you Idol Hotel! Will definitely want to return next time we’re in Paris!

What an amazing experience. This is more than a basic hotel, this is what I’m looking for when I look for accommodation. I will not hesitate the next time i will come to Paris and i will chose this without blinking an eye. Great job
