We booked this hotel at the very last minute because we missed our flight and had to spend an extra night in Paris. For roughly USD 200 -- it was a pretty nice hotel. However, I would not pay more than that.
Location: The oberkampf metro station is nearby, 3 to 4 minute walk.
Room: We were told we were upgraded to a Club room -- it didn't feel like an extra big room with any special features. It was a nice and adequate room. The room was pretty bare. Bed, narrow desk (wide enough for a big ipad), 1 chair, coffee table, flat screen TV, cupboard, safe. There's only about 5 or so rooms to a floor. One elevator.
Bed was nice. Better than 3 star hotels with springy beds -- but not as plush as a W bed / Westin Heavenly / etc.
Bathrooms were modern -- grohe rain dance shower heads. Good water pressure.
Noise: The only negative about the room was the windows. The non-insulated single pane windows. I can't imagine how cold it would be in the winter (although there is a heater)! However, it was pretty hot when we were there -- and we turned down the AC -- but it didn't seem to cool the room down. There were thick curtains though. However, the thick curtains could not silence the road/street noise. At around 6am/7am -- there were people moving their cars and probably a garbage truck that came by making clinking and clanking noises. It was not a peaceful morning. By 8 am -- you could hear people walking around outside chatting away. (Otherwise, the street is not that busy -- it's just the morning noise that bugged our sleep.)
Services: Free internet. And free coffee/hot drinks, madeleines from 11am. Breakfast was somewhere between 15 and 19 euros -- and it was not worth it. It wasn't bad -- but the selection was very basic. The check-in staff was very nice and accomodating.
Delayed check in: Although, we checked in at around 2:30PM and had to wait till 3:20 to get 1 of our 2 rooms. (Check in is listed on their website at 3PM) We got our 2nd room way later. I was not too happy about that -- especially when hotels aren't shy about asking us to check out on time.
Would I stay here again? Probably, unless I find a place in a better location.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel FABRIC is located between Republique and Bastille in the heart of Paris. This former workshop was transformed into a chic and stylish hotel. The 33 guestrooms are as stylish as they are comfortable. Their decor plays on the dualities which have always enlivened the neighbourhood: graphic shapes and industrial furniture from the factories sit alongside highly colourful, quality fabrics evoking the workers' allotment gardens of the Menilmontant quarter. ... more less
