“Cute, clean, very well run and affordable -Well done!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

I stayed here for two nights and found it to be just what I needed. I booked a single room and the online price was very reasonable for Paris -granted it was low season. The room was small, but it was just enough for me as a single traveler. The bed was very comfy, with very clean sheets and great pillows. The bathroom was also clean and the overhead rain shower a nice touch. The fresh, tasty breakfast was 12 Euros and well worth it, considering what you'd pay outside the hotel. There was free, fast wifi and the people at the front desk were friendly and helpful. Whoever created this hotel cared enough to give the place a cute, space pod modern design and I appreciate that they gave the place a look and a vibe -it worked for me!

Located next to loads of little bars, restaurants and shops, great for visiting Paris.
Rooms are not huge but well maintained, it's true that it can be noisy but we probably had quiet neighbors!
Reception people are always helpful, and breakfast was super fresh and high standard (fresh orange juices, choice of Nespresso coffees..).
Would definitely come back again!

This hotel would deserve an average if the staff were more helpful. But it isn't and not for bad will, it's just that they are untrained or careless. I asked if they had a special price for parking and was told yes sure and given the wrong address for the garage. I was also told a price that did not apply. Asked for the password for wifi and had to get it myself as the one I was given on the phone was old. Asked for a phone call intercontinental and was told that it would not be possible... The rest is OK, rooms are as little as you would expect in Paris but atill not bad and the location is OK.

After too many drab, expensive Paris hotels with tiny rooms, we were looking for something more enjoyable for a family holiday. Found the Color Design Hotel on the internet, with reasonable reviews, so booked two rooms for the family. It's out of the centre of Paris, but next to a Metro station, so travel was easy. Reception and rooms mainly white, with colour themed rooms (ours were red and green) which were bright, clean and mid-sized - large by Paris standards.
Breakfast was in a converted wine cellar and perfectly fine. Were there four nights, and no problems.

Paris has long been known as a city that doesn't offer tourists the best value for money. Color Design Hotel was a notable exception! It has recently been renovated, and has been done up with a touch of whimsical "design". The rooms are small, but very tidy and well appointed, and each wing is a different color, with perspex providing the colour (eg a red perspex rectangle serves as a desk).

Apart from the rooms, the best thing about the hotel was its attention to small details that made you feel at home. Bing walking distance from Nation, a hotel offering B&B for under 105 euros a night could be considered budget. However, the coffee at breakfast was Nespresso, and the orange jouce was fresh-squeezed, not from a bottle. These little details made my stay really pleasant. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Room Tip: If you have a problem with certain colours, you should probably indicate this in advance!

This hotel is simple, clean, with a bit of colour thrown in. The reception staff were all very helpful, providing a spare phone charger and so on. The service is not slick but it is good value for money, every member of staff was very polite dispelling any rude parisien stereotypes.

The location is excellent, and the main reason I booked, the area is full of lovely bars and restauraunts and it is difficult to go wrong. There is a local market 1 street back and there are 3 metro stations that are easy to walk to.

Comfortable beds, free wifi, great staff

The only cons, style over function, the bathroom door had no lock so you really have to know your roomate.
