This 4 star ‘destination hotel’ offers visitors to Paris an unconventional yet lively base to explore the boutiques and nightlife of the Marais, Canal Saint Martin and Oberkampf. With tasty Peruvian-French fusion cuisine; large spacious bedrooms and an assortment of bars to choose from, this hotel is a real gem awaiting discovery. Make sure you sample the delightful cocktails in one of its many South American themed bars!
What strikes you first is the impressive ‘ethno-contemporary‘ look and feel of this establishment, with its modern look mixed with Inca-style touches. Outside, you can relax on a striking terrace clad with orange chairs and matching electric blue window blinds on the Haussmannian facade . Two resident lizards, Machu and Pichu can be found safely housed in a vivarium, while Peruvian masks and Inka motifs add to the theme. The Pisco bar, complete with glass roof and hanging baskets, is particularly attractive. The young staff are extremely helpful and efficient, ensuring each guest’s needs are met. Exceptionally for Paris, the hotel has two pool suites, with their own small pool and terrace, overlooking a tranquil courtyard.
The hotel is well-located for travellers who wish to explore one a buzzy Parisien neighbourhood – where locals actually go. The Marais and its hip boutiques and cafés are within close walking distance; the Musée Picasso is a 10-minute walk away; while the Centre Pompidou is 20 minutes’ away on foot. For night owls, the bars of Rue de la Roquette and Rue Charlot are also nearby. Nearby métro stations include Filles du Calvaire (line 8) and Oberkampf (lines 5 and 9).
Each bedroom has a general look of chic understated minimalism, with white walls and bedding, grey and black-toned modern furnishings, and black wood floors. Views from the bedrooms are either of Boulevard du Temple or the internal courtyard.There are striking contrasts with touches of South American décor, such as woven alpaca carpets and fabrics clashing with muted tones. The hotel’s large beds are very comfortable and sound, with effective light proofing. A smart TV with on-demand movies and international channels is provided, as well as a minibar. Lights are controlled by buttons at the side of the bed, with options to bathe the room in a range of colours. Bathrooms are semi-integrated into the room, equipped with either deep bathtubs or powerful rain showers, with the toilet behind a closed door.
The hotel benefits from an attractive terrace, as well as a good-quality restaurant and two bars: the Al Pisco Bar and La Mezcaleria, a speakeasy-style bar, tucked away behind the restaurant. The hotel has a small fitness room with Technogym machines and weights. The 1K restaurant blends Andean cuisine with French technique, and was, according to the hotel, Paris’ first Peruvian restaurant. We recommend you try one of the hotel’s signature cocktails such as the Nikkei Sour (matcha-infused pisco, lemon and Bénédictine); a pisco-based cocktail in the Al Pisco Bar, or amezcal-based concoction in the hidden Mezcaleria bar.
