Mº Filles du Calvaire, Oberkampf.
Not to be confused with the old-fashioned Caron de Beaumarchais on the other side of the Marais, this is a fun and funky contemporary hotel on the edge of the hip Oberkampf district. You’ll get a good idea of the rooms from the lobby, with its brightly colored vinyl armchairs, industrial metal staircase, and monthly art exhibitions on the walls. A hardwood deck openes onto a small private courtyard, open when the weather is agreeable. The rooms will definitely wake up any jetlagged travelers with their primary reds and yellows, Keith Haring prints, and mosaic tiled bathrooms. You’re in the perfect location to take advantage of the nightlife of East Paris (Oberkampf, Balleville, Bastille) as well as just a short hop to the Marais’ shopping, dining and sightseeing.
31 rooms, Wi-Fi. Doubles from €110.
