Visiting the strangest hotels of Paris

Thursday, 18 December 2008

hotels ParisParis... The city of all the lovers, the city of dreamy charm of Montmartre, famous for its legendary beauty. This is the city, where each window faces the familiar silhouette of the Eiffel Tower and behind it, up to the very horizon there are lots of roofs, old as charm of the city and forming an absolutely unreal view.

We know some well-advertised places of Paris, but we don't give ourselves trouble to glance at the nooks of this city. We keep forgetting that these are the places where all magic hides. And sometimes it is so useful to step back from clichés and dive into romanticism of the city!

So let's enjoy this unknown Paris - let's go by a small ship along the Seine, or let's find ourselves in a gothic cathedral, beauty of which makes you spellbound. Let's «taste» the inimitable, unknown charm of the city of all the lovers. To feel the soul of modern Paris (which is a little crazy and extremely exciting), you need to choose the right hotel, because it is the starting point of making acquainted with the city.

Finding yourself in the hotel called «Hôtel Le Bellechasse», you will instantly get over any sorts of boredom you could have before. This is the temple of art, where two main things are insanity and Baroque!

This is the place where it is just impossible to sleep - you will spend all the night searching for the signs, symbols and magic. You will really enjoy the fantastic collage of nude figures, men with butterfly wings, enigmatic girls wearing masks and strange pictures, which attract and keep your attention. It is impossible to stay indifferent. Christian Lacroix's fantasy created this charming cocktail, which jollifies and besots you, and opens the door into a new world.

The whole hotel is a challenge: all the things you can see here are the best, the brightest and the most expensive. «Le Bellechasse» is the desire to know the best art of life, and each tiny detail of decorations makes it clear: 34 rooms, which are absolutely soundproof, are equipped with wi-fi, huge planar screens built in the walls, and the walls themselves - having beautiful bright coloring. High-tech equipment is wrapped into brocade, velvet, taffeta and snakeskin. This style is a cocktail of grotesque and humor, luxury and kitsch, which are unacceptable for minimalists and realtors.

Your dreams will become real, and your phantasmas will acquire new fantastic forms. And be sure: you will have no chance to get bored!

In «Hôtel du 7e Art» you immediately get to the party, which is incredibly bright and strange. You suddenly find yourself taking part in some event of retro-style, where the main tendency is kitsch.

Cinematography is the seventh art. «Hôtel du 7e Art» is the temple of this art, where you don't have to be a movie-fan to be able to evaluate brilliance and splendor of the old Hollywood. Even the logo of the hotel resembles the golden age of the world cinematography. The whole style of this strange place is a tribute to those times, when you could see real movie-stars on the screen, when the cinematography itself was something more than it is now... Something larger than life. Everything in «Hôtel du 7e Art» is filled with memories: foyer and bar are decorated with statues and placards of celebrities - actors, actresses and even cartoon characters.

And you don't have to be a real movie-fan to enjoy this place. In any case you will feel the endless drive of «Hôtel du 7e Art». If you still feel that there is not enough magic, go to the top-floor and find the room number 42. It's rather hard to get there because there is no lift in this hotel, but you will be greatly rewarded for your efforts. From this room you can see absolutely wonderful landscape - a magic panorama of Paris. You can hardly find any other place in the whole world, where you can enjoy sunset more than here!

Having entered one of the rooms of Hotel Saint Merry, you will feel the desire to press your hands one against the other and start praying. And no wonder: the atmosphere of the hotel is very likable; the religion just fills the air around you. The thing is that the building next door is St.Mary's Church and all entourage of this strange place creates the feeling of veneration.

Furnishings of the hotel (patterns on the wood, pulpits) as if persuade you to talk in wishper. Hotel Saint Merry is an accomplished gothic fantasy, where all 12 rooms are lovely filled with the furniture of the authentic period. Even the carpers here have church patterns and stone archways of Hotel Saint Merry make you feel that you're sleeping on God's lap.

Be prepared if you come to the third floor: the presidential suite of rooms situated there, under the roof, will take your breath away! These rooms are absolutely perfect for romanticists and are free from modern equipment, which could spoil your privacy. Thanks God, there are porters who can help you carry your luggage.

This is not the end of you walking through Paris: there are lots of fascinating adventures, which are only going to happen to us - but this is another story.
