This hotel is located in the north of the Marais – still close to the gay nightlife, but in a quieter area. There is a popular gay bar very close by (One Way, with a primarily leather/denim/bear crowd) as well as a gay cruise bar and a fetish shop. The rest of the Marais’ gay bars are, at most, 15 minutes away.
There are several large Metro stops nearby, meaning you are well-connected to the rest of the city. All the major central Paris attractions, such as the Louvre, Notre-Dame, and Centre Pompidou, can be reached within a pleasant half-hour walk or a quick 15-minute metro ride. Meanwhile, the hotel’s less touristy location means there are some wonderful hidden gems close by: don’t miss out on the Marche des Enfants Rouges, a bustling food market with treats from all over the world, literally across the street.
The hotel is quite basic, offering simple rooms. The decor is a bit dated, but everything is otherwise clean, tidy, and well kept. Rooms are on the small side, but you can go for a larger suite if you need more room. The staff are friendly and available 24/7 in case you need any help or support, and there is even a small sauna area.
