The three-star Hotel Crayon offers 26 rooms, each decorated with their own particular primary color scheme. The location just a short walk from the Centre Pompidou, the Opera, and Forum des Halles makes it an ideal, if not-so-cheapo, spot close to major attractions including the Louvre.
Pros: Renovated rooms. Cheerful staff. Bright, colorful décor. Central location. Free Wi-Fi throughout hotel.
Cons: Can be pricey. The touristy neighborhood isn’t for everyone.
The Hotel Crayon’s Amazing Technicolor Dream-rooms feature richly painted walls with framed prints and retro furnishings found in Paris’ famous flea markets. Note the red, yellow, and purple-themed rooms, further decorated with seemingly-scribbled drawings on the walls above beds, in corners and on doors. The higher-end rooms start mixing in patterns: paisley, printed wallpaper, silver panels. Hand-drawn illustrations done in crayon (naturally) may be a bit too loud or kitschy for some. Each room at the Crayon is equipped with air conditioning, TV, telephone and safe. They're also soundproofed, and all are non-smoking. Wi-Fi is free throughout the hotel and all rooms.
Bathrooms, which feature either shower or bathtub, are similarly stylish and colorful, with fanciful mirrors, glass shower doors, bright-and-happy tiling and a collection of globally-inspired toiletries. While compact, the rain shower will help you feel clean and refreshed after each daily adventure. All bathrooms are equipped with a hair dryer.
Guests can also choose their own personalized aromatherapy for their room, meaning the room will always smell exactly how you’d like.
Metro: The hotel is easily accessible by several Metro stations, including Les Halles, Louvre-Rivoli or Palais Royal-Musée du Louvre.
Airport: From either airport, the RER B train will stop at Châtelet-Les Halles for an easy walk to the hotel.

About the Hôtel Crayon by Elegancia neighborhood
Located to the west of Châtelet, the area surrounding the Louvre museum is an art lover's playground. The quarter boasts grand Haussmann-style boulevards leading to the gold dome of the Opéra and the banks of the Seine. The quarter's biggest draw is the Louvre museum and the Seine-side Jardin des Tuileries.
