Creating existing and unforgettable vibe the interior design offers amazing mixture of concrete -contemporary – industrial elements with stunning vintage pieces and great finds from Parisian flea markets, inviting, warm and charming textures, or even signature design elements including those from Tolix, Jielde and Tom Dixon.

The design of this hotel premises is like an art gallery itself – the richens of stylish details, unexpected twist and insertions and thematic separation of spaces – a Mondrian-inspired reception desk, followed by Moroccan infused chill-out space featuring custom wood pallet and kilim sectionals, or the elegant simplicity of the guestrooms: all is full of life, and every detail is made with love.
Throughout the hotel: in bars, lobbies, terraces, communal spaces and guest rooms – the rich, sensual play of colors, lights, furniture elements and textiles can spin your head on. According to the architects; “the interior design was inspired by the cinematic experience of strolling Paris’ streets and discovering its romantic moments, changing moods and rich colours”- so in reality this modern hotel with its 916 guest’s capacity in a range of shared rooms, twin rooms and penthouse rooms with private terraces and amazingly vital and intriguing communal spaces, becomes one very colorful, artistic and stylish love letter to Paris.
