Hotel Eiffel Blomet
It’s not hard to see why Paris has a lingering affection for all things Art Deco: the city was at its creative peak during the grit and glamour of the Jazz Age, and the style has stuck.
If you’re likely to find Art Deco design schemes across the city, than the newly renovated Hotel Eiffel Blomet—located in the 15th arrondissement, near to (though not within view of) the Eiffel Tower itself—has a particularly good claim on the era. In fact, it stands on the very street where the Bal Nègre (a famous revue which hosted the likes of Josephine Baker) once operated.
The design inside, then, pays tribute to this glittering moment in the city’s past, though it does so with a muted tastefulness. The rooms play with a neutral palette moderated with pops of cerulean; the rosewood-lined hallways create a sultry ambiance; haphazard collections of paintings and prints, poised right on the top of the headboards, add to the feel of freewheeling, bohemian artistry.
But a range of new features—including a beautiful tiled pool in the basement, a companion hammam, and a charming little courtyard area—make sure the Hotel Eiffel Blomet is more modern-day haunt than museum period piece.
