Stella Cadente, the creative brains behind Hotel Original, started out making jewelry for the big fashion houses, and as you might expect, the charm of this hip hotel’s decor lies in the details. Inspired by fairy tales by the likes of Hans Christian Andersen and Lewis Carroll, each room plunges you into a magical universe spiced up with bold color and surreal objets.
Bed and Bath
The 38 guestrooms are spread over six floors and are petite but perfectly comfortable. And though they’re equipped with flat-screen TVs, free WiFi and iPod docking stations, the technology never interferes with the style. Quirky design touches range from an enchanting LED light forest to black and white checkers and gold leaf on the walls. Under the hotel’s sloping roof, the rooms of the Seven Sins are decorated with giant, haunting photographic portraits on the ceiling.
A traditional French breakfast (delicious pastries and good coffee) is served in the breakfast room or in your room. There is also a bar for those who want a late night tipple. The reception area is cozy and a perfect intro to the hotel’s fairytale theme.
How to Get There
A very cute hotel with quirky decor in a great location in Paris. The staff was friendly and helpful, and breakfast, which was included with our room, was delicious. With Paris being the walkable city that it is, it was easy to get to a plethora of great cafes and shops from the hotel.
I stayed here twice on my 10 day trip to Europe. Loved it so much. Fabian the manager and his staff Charles, Tony and the whole crew were simply like family. Great location. Loved my cute single room. Very clean. I can’t wait to go back! I have been to over 50 countries and stayed in nice places. This is one of my top experiences! Loved how cute small and clean the hotel is.
I was there for business, but the room is much more better for vacation with your wife Or your girlfriend,
In the middle of the room is a large and luxurious bath. There is no desk so it is hard to work with a computer
