A la Bastoche !

Having opened in 2005, the Hotel Standard Design was the first trendy hotel to have opened in the bustling Bastille area.

Created by major Parisian hotelier Jean-Marc Galabert, who became successful thanks to his business providing mid-range and intelligent hotels, the Hotel Standard Design provides exactly that which is missing in the area: a nice hotel which is not too chic, completely contemporary yet without being too conceptual.

The décor at the Standard Design was designed by Carole Picard, who has truly played the black and white card.

From the entrance to the bedrooms, the communal areas to the rooftop breakfast room, every room provides an uplifting contrast between black flooring and white walls. With feathers in the lobby or Japanese prints in the bedroom, the lighting prolongs this idea.

The 48 bedrooms can be divided into two categories: standard and deluxe.

Small yet pleasant, the standard rooms provide the same equipment as the deluxe rooms - flat screen televisions with Canal+ and free wifi.

The deluxe rooms are more spacious, notably concerning the bathrooms, and come with bath robes, slippers and hairdryers.

None of the bedrooms have an office: yet a lacquered shelf frees up space. Similarly, there are no mini bars in the bedrooms: drinks are available at reception.

All the bedrooms are similar in terms of decor; they are simple yet well equipped: well-stitched black bedspreads, taffeta curtains (the only splash of colour in the room), low tables, bed head and lacquered high chair designed by David Lange.

The double glazing is effective, but if you are a light sleeper go for the rooms whish are higher up and look onto the interior court.

Situated on the rooftop and drenched in a wonderful light, the breakfast room is the only true communal area in the hotel. The lobby, with an open access computer, becomes a type of office, with large windows looking on to the street: and if you want a lounge the Bastille area is flowing with bars and cafés.

Concerning service, the Hotel Standard Design follows a classic and simple formula. Breakfast is available in your bedroom, the concierge are assured and clearly attached to the establishment, the personnel are very Parisian, simple and popular, and clearly more interested in welcoming guests than in design.

 

The clientele

Well made but with slightly fragile white walls, the Hotel Standard Design is ideal for those who want to enjoy Bastille and the surrounding area: the hotel is totally at one with this lively, informal and happy area.

If you're looking for something chic, luxurious and glamorous, look in a different area!
