Crayon Hotel Paris, France

November 29, 2011 by

Crayon Hotel Paris is a cozy place with more of a guest-house feel to it than your traditional hotel atmosphere.

The colorful pop art decorations and designer style set it aside from the normal hotel routine. The Crayon is a unique sort of guest-house: “the residence of a Parisian artist who invites you to enjoy a very colorful stay!”

The Crayon’s 26 rooms and one suite offer a magnificent picture of the “color block” style. Associations of colors, genres and materials are brought together to fashion Julie Gauthron’s world of “bohemian chic.” Rightly Parisian from floor to ceiling, the rooms are like staying with an old friend: a request to unwind and enjoy one’s surroundings; every effort has been made to make guests as comfortable as possible.

Individual Style, Unusuals, and Delightful Drawings are the three room categories guests can choose from. Each room has top quality bedding, flat screen TV, air conditioning, safe box, and a diffuser of the fragrance of your choosing. Julie Gauthron and Christophe Sauvage have battered antique shops and flea markets to furnish the 27 rooms, all of which have their own particular character, more in the style of a sumptuous guest room in a private house.

The hotel is filled with period-piece second-hand furniture that has been unwearyingly collected item by item in Lyon, Paris (at the flea market in Saint-Ouen), Nice and Marseille by Christophe Sauvage and Julie Gauthron, and then often tailored and given new colors.

Amenities and services include: free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, lift, safe box, baggage room, concierge service, fax and photocopy service, dry cleaning service, 24 hour room service, breakfast in the dining room or in your room, honesty bar on the ground floor, and laptop computer available.

Guests may find something from the 1950s, or 1975. The Crayon is a festive collage of ideas and styles, and it is this that gives it its exceptional character.
