The Hoxton, Paris opened last week, following a four-year development project and marking the fourth property in the quirky boutique portfolio.
The hotel, which is situated on Rue du Sentier in the 2nd arrondissement, is home to 172 bedrooms, two private courtyards, a French brasserie Rivié and Jacques’ Bar, plus meetings and events space Les Voûtes.
The Hoxton Paris is the biggest Hoxton to date and the historic building dates back to the 18th century, having been built by architect Nicolas d’Orbay for Etienne Rivié, an advisor to Louis XV.
The building had been left derelict for 10 years before The Hoxton took over in 2013 and the last four years has been spent redeveloping the property.
The hotel comprises of 3 buildings, and has 15 staircases, with rooms spread across five floors and set in four categories, from shoebox, cosy, roomy and biggy. All come with free water, WiFi, one hour of free calls to anywhere, a mini fridge and a light breakfast drop to the door.
The Hoxton, Paris was designed as a collaboration between local Parisian design studio, Humbert & Poyet (bedrooms), long-time Hoxton partner, Soho House (public spaces) and Ennismore’s Creative Studio (bringing it all together).
As with the three other hotels in The Hoxton’s current portfolio, the building’s history and streets and scenes that surround have hugely influenced the design aesthetic.
There are also three rooms on the fourth floor with views of the Eiffel Tower.
