Hotel Check IN at 20 Prieure Hotel | Paris, Francia | My first stop and Hotel Check IN in France. And this time I started humble but maintaining the concept of trendy chic boutique hotel. Going very local away from the luxury hotels I am used to, this time I went gay at the 11eme Arrondissement. (aka. for those that say that I never review gay hotels).
I arrived this morning very early, since my flight from New York City arrived at 7AM. Got to the hotel approx. at 9AM and they checked me in, put my luggage in safe and invited me for breakfast at the ground floor while my bedroom was being cleaned and getting ready. Basic French style breakfast, but indeed a plus. It was nice to be able to check in at 10.30AM, take a shower and hit the road.
My first impressions on the room. Small, but hey it is Paris, so get over that. I mean it is indeed humble trendy chic boutique three stars hotel, with price per night starting at EU 199. This includes FREE WiFi. Only negative comment, is that the towels and bed linen looks a bit tired. Other than that, it is a great value and charming petite chamber (room) and hotel. 32 rooms in warm colours with brown, orange and ochre tints, thick carpets and unusual photographic views of the capital above the beds.
Known to be and promote as a Gay Hotel, I mean look at the Welcome Amenities waiting at my room upon Check IN ha ha ha. Funny right, but must admit that the RedBull went down in two seconds, after 6 hours flight and over 5 hours difference. As for the crowd at the hotel, I have seen a fare mix of Gay and Straight clientele, which I personally prefer.
Situated next to the Place de la République, at the intersection of the Marais and the Canal St Martin, in the trendy and popular quarter of Oberkampf, the 20 Prieuré Hotel originates from an idea: to create a cosy niche, a contemporary design retreat for visitors to the City of Light. First two nights in Paris at 20 Prieure Hotel. CM @ Carlos Melia Recommends
