This is a nice contemporary hotel and the price was very decent. The front desk people are very nice and quite helpful. My room was nice, bed was soft. The service was good. Overall the hotel was very good, however the room decor was kind if funny and to some may be scary. There are masks that are used as lamp shades. Each room was equipped with a 27 inch Mac and you can get on the Internet with a borrowed keyboard from the front desk. The hotel dinning is interesting but the bar is full every night. The hotel us located about 15 min walk to two train statins and once you know your way, it is quite convenient to get around. Dinning is quite abundant if you care to walk around, overalI i rate this a good hotel and worth to come back to.

Clean, fun and great design hotel. Excellent value. Great breakfast buffet with choices of hot food, fruits, pastries and a good selection of teas (a first for me in France). Would definitely return again and recommend to friends.

Room Tip: Room 622 came with comedy masks of Scooby Doo and Darth Veda, if you like that sort of thing...

We stayed here for two nights after checking out the prices for central parisian hotels.
This one is a bit off centre, right next to the Pére Lachaise cemetery, 8-10 minutes away from the Metro.
The hotel is very trendy, with a lively decor and a very fashionable restaurant and bar, which was always full for dinner - the restaurant is fine, although a little expensive for what you get. There is an adjacent pizzeria which it is said to be very good and it's right next to the restaurant.
The rooms are a bit dark and the design ends in the bathroom - very simple, no amenities (just soap and a 3-in-1 shampoo/shower gel). The space is more than enough and you do get your own iMac to play with.

All in all, a great place to stay in Paris, recommended!

Excellent location, cool and unique hotel, very helpful and friendly staff.
Stylish and funky design creates a unique atmosphere, expecially for a romantic getaway. Very comfortable rooms. Good selection of free movies on a TV.
A hip bar and restaurant - a bit pricey though.
The local neighbourhood offers great small bistros and bars at a very good value, centre reachable in 15 minutes.
The local area has so much to offer - we will definitely be back to explore more.

Very cool hotel in a good, local neighbourhood in Paris. The hotel staff were friendly and welcoming.
Great Apple TVs in the room is a nice touch. Rooms are quite small and the one I stayed in had quite dark decor (black walls)... I also found the room to be extremely warm and the air conditioning like and old asthmatic dog!
The food in the restaurant was expensive for the quality we received & I thought the drinks prices were quite expensive (€7.50 for a 330ml bottle of local beer)... There are some god local restaurants tucked down side street serving a menu du jour for a reasonable price.
Many people have complained about the location and you need to go here with your eyes open - it's not in the centre of Paris, but there is a metro stop 5 minutes walk away and it only takes 15 minutes to be outside the Hotel De Ville. Personally, I would rather stay a little further out than right on the middle of it all.

Very cool hotel, even though the location is not very central.
The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant and bar are very hip and happening with good mix of locals, families and colorful people. The food is nice and good value.
Definitely will be back.

Room Tip: Rooms are small but comfortable.

The location is nestled between Metro stops in a quiet neighborhood. This unique hotel was a fun experience. Small, but the artistic decor makes it feel intimate. Staff was very helpful. Pizzeria was delicious. We will stay here again in the future.
