Bright and breezy and sure to make life easy if you’re planning a short Marais stopover. This is a small no-frills, former hotel de quartier given a smart design facelift. Though bright red is part of the new livery, and modern art now features in the lobby, this is a quaint Parisian hostelry of the old school, recast for the modern traveller – more corner shop than boutique.
Whether the accent is on culture or clubbing this is a cheap and chic option for a centrally based weekend, with the metro almost on the doorstep, just a brisk few minutes walk from the Pompidou Centre, and the nearest gay bar even closer. If you are a happy easyJetsetter, this could well be your ideal home from home for a few Paris nights.
