Hotel Snob — Paris, France
Inspired by the quintessential Parisian lady, renowned for her effortless chic and exquisite detailing, Hotel Snob can be found on the recently redeveloped Les Halles district on a pedestrian section of rue Saint-Denis, that is bustling with shoppers during the day and transforms into a calm oasis at night.
Designed by local duo, Dorothée Delaye and Daphné Desjeux, upstairs the bedrooms are compact and cosy in a sultry palette of inky blacks, bordeaux and gold on a base of smokey grey, while Parisian couture notes appear in herringbone headboards, black and white houndstooth carpets and lacquered cabinets with spindly legs inspired by stiletto heels. Elsewhere, tasselled lampshades emit a warm, flattering glow and irreverent ’Renaissance’ portraits add a note of humour.
There is no restaurant, but guests can fuel up in the mornings with a breakfast in the velvet-curtained alcove on the ground floor, before setting to the Pompidou Centre and Nortre Dame, just a short stroll away.
