Hotel Kube in Paris, France

August 29, 2011 by

Hotel Kube, located in Paris, is found in the midst a petite, hushed street at the summit of Paris’ Montmartre. It is a retro-future hotel that challenges the traditional clichés of Paris, fitting rather into a Jacques Tati vision of modernity.

Hotel Kube combines a determinedly arithmetical sense of architecture with a 1960s sci-fi theme in its furniture and décor, creating a banquet for the eyes and senses.

Kube’s 26 guestrooms and 15 suites, set around the hotel’s open courtyard, provide an offsetting warmth, with high color contrast, faux-fur accents and bean-bag chairs as well as beds lit from below, giving a vaguely bizarre edge to the warmth. Each guest room at Hotel Kube is air conditioned and equipped with cable TV, video games and a radio. Access to rooms is via a digital fingerprint system and they also have a private bathrooms.

At the back a Haussmanian frontage, a shimmering Plexiglass cube serves as Kube’s reception area, evocative of I.M. Pei’s pyramids in the Louvre’s courtyard. A vast lobby come restaurant come bar serves as the heart of Kube Hotel, a futuristic, low-lit space with high ceilings, stainless steel accents and a state-of-the-art-sound system camouflaged in red ceiling lanterns. The ultra-trendy “Ice Kube” bar on the mezzanine features Aeero Aarnio’s 1968 Bubble Chairs and a vodka-only drinks menu.

Breakfast is served daily and the Kube’s restaurant serves culinary cuisine. There is also a gym with massage treatment rooms and a 24-hour reception.

Just a 2 minute walk from La Chapelle Metro station, guests of the Kube Hotel have easy access to the city’s main attractions including the Sacre Coeur, Moulin Rouge and the Pere Lachaise Cemetery.

The overall effect at Kube Hotel is of an peculiarly comfortable space capsule, a fun side of the future.
