Nestled into a quiet corner of the otherwise lively 9th arrondissement, the charming new Hôtel de Nell takes a streamlined but intimate approach to the design hotel conceit. Most design elements, from the elegantly ergonomic door handles to the metal lampshades (produced by Artemide), were overseen by the Parisian architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte - that, along with the modern bistro La Régalade and subtle sur mesure details, all confirm the hotel's appeal.
