THE GROOVIEST HOTEL IN PARIS
Located on Rue d`Edimbourg, very close to the Opera Garnier, the grooviest hotel in Paris is a joyful hymn to Black Music from the 60s to the 80s. Composed by Yann Gasparini, jazz, soul and funk music lover, painted by the funkiest decorator in the Parisian hotel industry, Julie Gauthron, and renewed by Elegancia Hotels and AD-Tango, the Idol Hotel celebrates this historically music-oriented neighborhood. On the same street we find, for example, the Municipal Conservatory of Paris and a large number of musical instrument stores.
In the hotel lobby, totally musical, above the stacks of vinyl records, is the sculptural collection of ceiling lamps by Delightfull - Clark. These pieces, made of gold-coated brass, give the trumpet, the trombone and the organ a new function and announce the theme of the hotel. In the lounge area, a cozy vintage room with a touch of Jazz Club, the guests can enjoy a delicious breakfast and see other artworks, such as The Sound of Trumpet, sculpted by Julie Gauthron.
With a charming and melodious decoration, the hotel rooms have names like Lady Soul, Blue Moon, Light My Fire, Jungle Fever or Give me the Night. Inspired by James Brown, Snoop Dog, George Benson or Leroy Hutson albums, they all present bright wallpapers, pop furniture color, spherical lamps and a risky color palette that ranges from peacock blue to golden. The Idol Hotel also has five suites - My Cherie Amour, Give Me the Night, Blue Sunshine, Jungle Fever and Feeling Good.
More than a design hotel, this magnificent space in the City of Lights offers music, funk and groove to all visitors.
