I want to start with the good points. The location is fantastic-centre of the city, less than a minute's walk from 2 metro stations, 10 minute walk to Gallery Laffayett and surrounded by restsurants and cafes.
The staff were lovely - professional and polite, pleasant and helpful.
The room i didnt like. Although brand new, clearly the room is designed for a single businessman in town for a night or two. For us as a couple, the room was very small, hard to get around without bumping into eachother. The closet was so small I had to pile 5 days-worth of clothes onto one very small, narrow shelf; the only shelf. There was no room to store the suitcase or place shoes.
The bathroom had no door and the shower door was clear, see-through glass. Personally, i like complete privacy when I shower. And there was no where to place the soap but on the floor !!
The bed was fantastic - very comfortable matress and luxurious linen.
The decor was morbid. All black: the walls, curtains and carpet. My husband loved it...

Hi Maya,

Thank you so much for your review. I am glad to learn that you enjoyed our central location, as well as our frindly and attentive staff.
As for the decor, it is unfortunately extremely hard to pleae everyone, and as you just mentioned, your husband loved it. While we were developping the hotel, we wanted to create a dimmed down and more intimate ambiance, combined with the open bathrooms that give a little voyeur touch to it.
However, knowing that our guests have different needs and expectations, we do have rooms that are painted in a lighter beige and where the bathroom is seperated of the bedroom.
Next time you chose to stay with us, please specify that you would rather stay in one of those roms: you will still have the same amenities, same bed and same linens you loved so much.
I look forward to welcoming you soon at Eugène en Ville and, again, thank you so much for your review.

Best,
- Miguel Plantier

I was looking for accommodation near the shopping belt for my wife and we chanced on this new hotel. We previously stayed at another hotel further down Rue Lafayette. It was literally new, no reviews on Tripadvisor, and we decided to take the risk. Even the cab driver was a little lost with the address, but it wasn't too hard since it was our 2nd trip to the area.
Checking in, I think you could even smell the "new-ness" of the area and my wife was apprehensive. The reception was warm and we were pleasantly surprised and impressed with the décor. We took the superior double room and it was spacious with good amenities.
The small oyster bar restaurant is excellent, the window view while not streetview, offered a cosy little corner to enjoy your day.
We stayed 4 nights and the staff were friendly and very accommodating. Its a great boutique hotel, love the all-black interior and rain-shower!
Will definitely return.

If you like the Hotel du Vin brand in England then you'll love this hotel! It's quiet, calming and has a young personality that belies the decor which is baroque with a sharp modern twist. The mixed continental breakfast was perfect, hot, fresh and delivered exactly on time. The hotel team were all polite and enthusiastic and genuinely I couldn't have asked for more.

I was met on checkout by the chef d'hotel (Director) Jean Jacques who greeted me by name which was a first, so as it transpires was I, the first resident. I'd like to publicly thank Jean Jacques and his entire team for what was the best service I've in a Parisienne hotel. You have the right ingredients and I wish you every success and thanks you all again for turning what was looking like a disaster into a fantastic stay in Paris.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
An impromptu pied a terre or a Parisian holiday address for an extended stay, Hotel Eugene en Ville offers guests superior hospitality with spirited service. The emphasis is on creating a mixed palette of styles. The raw-finished walls and industrial furniture poke fun at more traditional features and appointments. Dark Victorian patinas, ornate mirrors and candelabras, soft, cosy armchairs and curios – all handpicked from antique shops and markets – create a style that is at once refined and iconoclastic. The chemistry is simply compelling. On the same eccentric register, a giant screen shows snippets of life inside a luxury hotel: an unconventional film that takes a witty look at an establishment that is well and truly frequented in every sense of the word. The hotel has inherited the sort of elegance that never seeks to look overly sophisticated. It possesses the kind of charm that always feels spontaneous: that truly Parisian effortless chic that Eugene holds the secret to. ... more   less
