Musée de l’Histoire de l’Immigration, Aquarium, Zoo, Foire du Trône, Bois de Vincennes… The Porte Dorée neighborhood in Paris 12th arrondissement offers a maximum of places to visit and activities to do. German group Motel One got it well and chose this neighborhood to set up its first Parisian hotel at 295 Avenue Daumesnil: the Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée.
Set a stone’s throw from the Bois de Vincennes, Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée is a design hotel that mixes animal and plant patterns and Art Deco style. The 255 bedrooms of the establishment have their own particularity and each detail has been thoroughly thought about: in the bathroom, we find soft bath towels and organic and natural beauty products.
In the bedroom, quality bed, sheets made of Egyptian cotton and a boxspring expect clients who choose inside the size and the texture of the pillows they want. Carpets representing abstract scenes from a stroll in a park are the work of Christian Lacroix and each of the room features a Smart TV.
On the ground floor, Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée lounge is adorned with warm colors. Chairs are by Freifrau and Baxter, sofas by Italian brand Moroso. A wall is entirely covered in facetted mirrors inspired by Manet’s painting “A Bar at the Folies Bergère”, while another wall served as a support material for Rachel Convers’ imagination who painted surprising hybrid animals.
Marble and brass tables and the seats covered in velvet remind us of the Parisian bistros. And the bar, as vintage as possible, is enhanced by a set of tinted mirrors and wall panels.
Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée offers a breakfast with fresh products, of high quality and most of them are organic and local. A snacking service is available at the lounge until 2 a.m. As for the bar, it serves a large variety of wines, gin, signature cocktails as well as typically French cocktails.
And the little summery pleasure, Motel One Paris-Porte Dorée has a beautiful terrace facing the Bois de Vincennes and the Lac Daumesnil!
