Situated 5 mins walk from the metro in a reasonably quiet street, this place is good if you want to be 15 mins from the action and have a boutique hotel without the astronomical prices of most places in Paris.
The area is actually rather trendy now, with a lot of seriously good bars and restaurants (Chatomat, Caves Parisiennes were the ones we tried. Also La Feline if you want a really crazy surf rock bar with a fabulous host) so there's plenty happening and a very cool young crowd hanging out.
The welcome at Fabric is charming - sitting you down in a couple of armchairs to go through the details. The lounge area is all rickety wood, with free hot drinks and honesty bar in the evening (for whisky fans, they have Talisker on the honesty bar...what more do I need to add?).
Our room was on the ground floor, but they said these rooms are larger so perhaps a good plan, and they are on a courtyard so no road noise.
Our room was really well equipped, with an absolutely enormous bed that was very comfortable. There was a sitting area and large bathroom (but no bath) and everything was shiny new and spotless.
I liked the vibe of this place - unpretentious but high class, but it is small and doesnt have the services for anyone used to 4/5 star treatment, The rooms are v nice however, the staff are great, and the prices are very reasonable for the quality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Hotel FABRIC is located between Republique and Bastille in the heart of Paris. This former workshop was transformed into a chic and stylish hotel. The 33 guestrooms are as stylish as they are comfortable. Their decor plays on the dualities which have always enlivened the neighbourhood: graphic shapes and industrial furniture from the factories sit alongside highly colourful, quality fabrics evoking the workers' allotment gardens of the Menilmontant quarter. ... more less
