Highs & Lows

  • The design is incredible, making it feel like more than a 3-star hotel.

  • You can feel the owner Adrien Gloaguen’s attention to detail throughout every corner of the hotel, from the logo design to the collection of books on Paris stocked in their library.

  • The hotel’s Instagram is a design-lover’s dream.

  • My cousin surprised us and flew in from Shanghai—our room was so spacious it even came with a pull-out couch - fitting all 6’3” of him perfectly.

  • If you’re a light sleeper, bring earplugs. Noise both from the street and inside the hotel were an issue.

  • Customer service was hit or miss – sometimes fantastic, though more often you’d have to track down the front desk staff for basic requests.
