For those willing to splurge on a three-star hotel, the Beaubourg is a solid bet in the Marais, offering a good deal for handsome rooms just steps from the Pompidou Center.
Pros: Well-equipped rooms with flowery décor. Very convenient Beaubourg/Marais location. Some wood-beamed ceilings.
Cons: Rates can be expensive. Some rooms small.
First, the rates: With doubles hovering in the €130 range during low season, the Hotel Beaubourg doesn’t win our “Editor’s Pick” seal for cheap sleeps. However, considering the quality of its rooms, location and service, we recommend it for those willing to invest in a good three-star hotel.
The hotel is in plain view of the bustling area surrounding the Centre Pompidou, but you’d never know from inside. Nestled on traffic-free rue Simon le Franc, the splurge-worthy hotel’s 28 rooms are handsomely appointed, immaculate and pin-droppingly quiet.
Guestrooms, zealously outfitted with exposed wooden beams and opulent wallpaper (stripes, floral and toile, too) in splashy, saturated hues of pink, yellow, orange and blue, have an oversized dollhouse feel. Pattern-on-pattern, the décor is deliciously frou-frou. Note that some rooms are tight, but all are well equipped with air conditioning, a flat-screen television, minibar and phone. Free Wi-fi works in the rooms.
Offering an exquisite selection of toiletries, the bathrooms dazzle with spotlights, white-and-blue tiling, sizable marble sinks and ornate gold mirrors. Bathtubs are available (request ahead).
The quietest rooms overlook a flower-filled inner courtyard, while others look out onto the street, with double-paned glass to keep the noise down. The deluxe suite, located on the ground floor, has its own private patio terrace and spacious seating area.
Hotel management and staff are extremely attentive and approachable. Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel, along with an Internet station, both free to use.
Breakfast is served in the restored stone cellar for €9.50.
The Hotel Beaubourg sits on the tiny rue Simon le Franc, less than a half-block from the back of the Pompidou Center. This location puts you close to the Les Halles RER stop (direct to Charles de Gaulle airport), and close to innumerable other Right Bank attractions. The restaurants, shops and bars of the Marais are minutes from the hotel.
