I highly recommend this hotel. Great eclectic neighborhood. Close to transport, beautiful design and excellent staff that were so helpful. Perfect for my needs. The bathroom is lit like stars. This small and chic hotel was very cool

The first thing you notice about Hotel Exquis are the bright walls, the second are the bright smiles on the staff. All of the front desk people are extremely nice, helpful, and make you feel more than welcome. The hotel is quiet and the rooms are comfortable. Ours was a bit tight for two people, but it was only for...

Lovely rooms, clean and tidy. Staff were lovely and helpful. Great funky decor. However the rooms did not have a kettle and tea and coffe facilities and the "continental" breakfast buffet was a let down.

Dear Nadya, We are sorry to hear you were not pleased with our continental buffet, though we select quality products varied. We are opened to any suggestion you may give to improve our breakfast. Regarding the kettle, it's been ordered to be ready in each room. We wish you the best. Sincerely, Front Desk

Slightly late with a review having stayed here in November 2016, but this is a fantastic hotel. The décor and fittings are very cool and such a nice change from other hotels.

I was sold right from the start - they had free muffins at the reception! Nicely decorated hotel with rooms sized like they usually are in Paris, tiny. Not very near metro stations but still an easy walking distance from multiple lines. Many nice restaurants and cafés nearby (e.g. had the best croissants of our trip at the café from...

Nice hotel, rooms very funky. But the breakfast was a bit pricey, however there are plenty of bakery's near by. Two tube stations near by also which was handy. Could do with a kettle in the room however.

This hotel was in a great location for me and my wife. We was walking distance from the bustling Bastille and had many lovely restaraunts around us. The staff are so friendly and spoke great English as our French is not the best they would greet you with a smile no matter how many times you came in or out.....

Nestled between the Seine, Bastille, and Père Lachaise lies a peaceful side of town where wide avenues and impressive buildings accompany green spaces and small parks.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
With this new hotel opened in September 2015, artist Julie Gauthron carries you into the world of surrealism and art, where the mysterious is omnipresent. The 42 rooms have been decorated in a retro style, with bargained furniture that tells a story of its own. A unique piece of collective and original art is displayed in each room. These artworks are based upon the “exquisite corpse” concept; several artists have contributed to their creation by bringing in their own unique style. The result tells a fantastic story to be discovered in the hotel’s common areas as well. Located in the 11th arrondissement of Paris, a few minutes from Bastille and in a popular district among artists and antique dealers, Hotel Exquis welcomes guests in an artistic and colorful location that makes it the ideal place to stay during your leisure and business trips. ... more   less
