Ideally located along the northwestern edge of the Marais, near the Musée des Arts et Métiers (one of our favorites), the three-star Hôtel Ecole Centrale glows with a holiday vibe.

Pros: Fun art-deco touches. Free Wi-Fi. Friendly management.

Cons: Rooms and breakfast can be very pricey.


The hotel’s 22 small rooms are brightened with vibrant sponge washes in orange, yellow and lavender, and furnished with funky, art deco-inspired furniture. Rooms are equipped with air conditioning, a flat-screen television, phone and free Wi-Fi. Rooms on the first three floors have higher ceilings supported by exposed wooden beams. A sixth-floor deluxe suite offers a Jacuzzi bathtub, slanted ceilings and skylights (but you’ll have to take the stairs up from the fifth floor to get there).

The bathrooms shine with modern fixtures. Bathtubs (and bathrooms with a view!) are available (ask ahead).

Downstairs, the lobby and adjoining café are whimsically decked out with potted palms and posh wicker, along with wall murals and scattered wrought iron grilles. It manages to feel both like a movie-set and an Italian palazzo.

We loved both the breakfast room’s balcony and the giant crystal chandelier hovering above the reception desk, and the management and staff are friendly and helpful.

Breakfast is available for a rather steep €15.
