The Hotel Fabric, Paris newest boutique hotel is fast becoming the trendiest and most sought after place to be – and we can only agree, beaucoup!
Located in the east side of Paris in the 11th arrondissement, between the vibrant Oberkampf and the antiques dealers of the Marche Popincourt, this renovated old manufacture is an ideal location for the visitor in a lookout for a real Paris experience off the beaten tracks. Rive droite and the eastern arrondissements have always been more boheme and home of mixed cultures then the very posh rive gauche. Eastern Paris is now popping up with bars, art galleries, inspired street art, small designer shops and we just love that. Ignored for a while by the tourists, maybe because of the lack of big “must see” place, this neighbourhood is a wanderlust dream with its walk inducing streets and hidden gems.
Speaking of gems, the Hotel Fabric welcomes its guests in a gorgeous lobby furnished with leather sofas, wooden libraries and colourful old tiles in a refined and chic atmosphere, with a very attentive and warm service. The rooms have the high ceilings that you can expect in an old manufacture, big bright windows that illuminate the spacious and modern rooms in their orange, pink or blue themes. Every item has been chosen with an elaborated taste, from the industrial / wooden / hipster cabinet till the industrial bedside table, or the L’occitane complimentary bath products. The bathrooms are huge and come with a shower or a bath for some rooms, ideal after a long day walking in the arty east side.
Last but not least, a very exclusive and intimate hammam (steaming room) for hotel guests only can be booked for your and your loved one anytime. This beauty is a treat, with its blue tiles and ceiling of sparkling stars – the mother of all hammams.
We say we are in love with hotel Fabric, we say thank you to the great Michael and his attentive service, we say this is the (real) Paris that we like.
Breakfast: served from 8am – 10am. Buffet breakfast in the lobby, with crispy local baguette, gorgeous tea and a selection of cold cuts
Assets: the hammam, the location, the fantastic service – oh, and the L’occitane products too.
