Hotel Description

At the far end of the scale from the grand palaces that used to dominate the Paris hotel scene, there’s Hôtel Exquis Paris — unapologetic about its modest footprint, this vibrant, pocket-sized boutique hotel, located in the 11th, not far from the Père Lachaise cemetary, aims at a Surrealist randomness in its creative elements, which, along with its bold neon color palette, tends to expand its interior worlds beyond their physical dimensions.

The lobby juxtaposes Scandinavian wood with exuberantly colored walls and floors, a figure-ground reversal that draws the eye outward and makes the spaces feel bigger than they are. The self-serve canteen and the vending-machine boutique provide all the help you’ll need — this place is more pied à terre than palace, low-maintenance living and low-impact to boot, the whole hotel more organic and sustainable than you probably thought a city establishment could be.

Thanks to the efforts of artist and designer Julie Gauthron, the guest rooms add to the bubbly, eclectic feel of the hotel’s public spaces, a surprising marriage of retro-futurist elements with antique furniture. The former’s snaking copper pipes, gleaming chrome fixtures, and Edison bulbs stand out sharply (and successfully) against patterned wallpaper accents and, surprise, a handpicked assortment of polished-wood tables. The famous Surrealist “exquisite corpse” method links the seemingly disparate spaces together, via motifs that recur in the wallpaper and the artwork. The whole evidently is greater than the sum of its parts — and makes plenty of room for flatscreens, complimentary wi-fi, and other amenities of the digital age.
