Reviewed January 10, 2013

Came upon this on the internet and decided to try it as I was intrigued by the photos. Although right up on the top floor, the room was exactly like its photographs, quirky and unusual, definitely not your usual hotel room and all the better for it. For a single person it was great. A look out of the window showed the night sky and the Eiffle tower all lit up.
The large bathtub in the corner of the room was magnificent and certainly made the walk up from the Gare du Lyon well worth the effort. Never seen so many power sockets in a hotel room!
Front of house helpful and charming.

Hello,
Well thank you for the comment and we are glad the Hotel and its decor pleased you. We are indeed proud of it :) Great then that you found us! It was a pleasure to have you amongst us for your stay in Paris. We hope to see you next time in Paris...and maybe in a different decor...but not to worry, there will be just as many power sockets as your previous room :)
In any case, do not hesitate, and you have all best wishes from your Original Team.
Sincerely,
Fabien

We stayed in your hotel from 2nd to 3rd January 2013, the room and your staffs were outstanding. The location of the hotel is really good, we found a lot of restaurants and attractions 5 minutes away from the hotel, as well the Eiffel tower and the Louvre Museum were from a walking distance. Your front office staffs were pleasant and efficient and your housekeeping were equally efficient. Only draw back was that the staffs were using the guests lift for their work, a solution should be found. Beside that everything else was outstanding. Thank you very much, we will surely come back next year...

We stayed in the Alice in Wonderland-room. They had decorated it in black and lilac with some hints from the story.
The room was not big, but the lay-out was well done. The beds were very comfortable, which is not always guaranteed in a city hotel.
The hotel has got a loyalty-bar where you can help yourself. Staff friendly and helpful.
Hotel is north of the river, not far from Notre Dame.

What else can I say - location, location, location! Well, that and the funky redesign of the hotel and friendly, very accommodating staff. Stayed there a total of 3 nights at the end of a week long mini-trip through France. Loved staying here - as it offered easy access to both Opera Bastille, and a single metro line to the Palais Garnier. Perfect if you're looking to. Also a great assortment of bakeries and cheap a couple blocks over, easy access to the rest of paris by metro. Metro access literally on the same block as this hotel - was a definite plus! I know the hotel makes a big deal about how each room is designed based on a particular theme. It was fun, but wasn't the highlight of my stay... definitely go here for a comfortable stay in a well located hotel. Perfect for solo or couples.

Room Tip: Remember to ask for a room with a standalone shower. Some of the double rooms have a bathtub in the...

Having stayed at a few hotels in Paris I can't recommend a better boutique hotel. I was particularly impressed with the customer orientated service, let alone the hotel's splendour of design.
The hotel is conveniently located at a central point of Paris where you'll find many a restaurant or cafe and shopping a stones throw away.

What an interesting place to stay, room was very interestingly decorated! A bath in the centre of the room with a curtain to draw around it and possibly the biggest bed I've ever slept in! Small extras like an Ipod connecting sound system just help you to feel comfortable.

The hotel has a great feel to it which added to our experience of visiting Paris for the first time.

Very close to a main metro line which provides access to the centre of Paris. There's a few bars and restaurants nearby to the hotel if you want to eat nearby as well.

Staff are very friendly and helpful from the moment you walk into the hotel.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone!

This is a small hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are tiny by American standards but modern tiny which helps a bit. With a contemporary room you also get a great shower and bed....it would be tough to spend much time in the room but who is spending time in a room in Paris with such a great location...our concerns were more taste than comfort-we found the decor of "Cards" a little "over the top" (room 405). In such a small space I would have preferred not so much going on....the lighting in the room could be brighter, especially with such dark decorating. On the positive side the shower was super and the bed very comfy. Easy walk to the Marais-1/2 block from Metro. Bring small luggage.....

Hello,
Thank you much for your comment left on Trip Advisor. We were really happy to have you here with us. I think the "by American standards" seems familiar :) We do concur and this is the charm of Paris we could say. Indeed the Joker room has a darker theme and again it pleases not every one :) We do hope to have you back with us for a Round 2 of your parisian adventures and in a much different theme this time, one which could be "winner" as you could put it :)
Enjoy the holiday season and all the best wishes from your Original Team.
