Highs & Lows

  • Chic design, the wallpaper and furniture a mid-century design lover’s dream.

  • Proximity to Gare du Nord – quicker by foot than by Metro.

  • Freshly baked pastries and great coffee in a boujee breakfast room.

  • Comfy, quiet room – but you might need earplugs for the noise from other guests.

  • Out-of-date website info means some things were not as expected, like the bathroom products and lack of room service/bar.

  • The light switches were complicated, even by hotel standards.

    No, but take a run uphill to the Sacre Coeur and you’ll never need a gym again.

  • Restaurant

    Only at breakfast where freshly-baked bread and pastries will have your energy set up for the day.

  • Bar

    No, but you’re never far from one.

  • Minibar

    No, BYOB.

  • Children

    Sure, but get a big room.

  • Price

    Starting around €109, it can be a bargain by Paris standards.
