The 25hours German hotel group chose the vibrant 10th arrondissement to set up its first hotel in Paris. Facing the North Station, the hotel occupies the walls of a vast building built in 1860, renovated by the architectural consultants, Axel Schoenert Architects. We slept here, had dinner and breakfast and loved everything!
With its trendy and dynamic reputation, serious but uninhibited, the 25hours concept is simple: to provide modern answers to the needs of urban travelers. For its first French establishment, the group bet on the 10th arrondissement, a Parisian district that is in full bloom and the gateway to multiple cultures. The idea: to transcribe the atmosphere of this arrondissement within the walls of the hotel. The result? An ultra-creative African-Indian design that dresses the 237 rooms (ranging from the S to the XL) with bed linen designed in the traditional African fabric in wax, tajine dishes that serve as sinks, appliqués made from old Coca-Cola cans … All of this creates an atmosphere, a warmth and a conviviality which do not diminish neither the comfort nor the elegance of the space. In step with this ambiance, the NENI restaurant is a place of cosmopolitan life where is served an Israeli cuisine priding itself with touches from here and elsewhere. The menu has a multitude of plates decorated with tasty culinary creations such as ” Nuriel’s favorite falafels ” served with tahini sauce Har Bracha and Zhug; ” Elior’s Favorite Braised Beef Sandwich ” with Maple Syrup, Cheddar, Homemade BBQ Sauce, Pickled Chilli, Fresh Herbs and Sweet Potato Fries with Mango Mayonnaise. For dessert, the diabolical ” Sesame Halva ” and its muscovado sugar ice cream ensure a beautiful finale. In the extension of the restaurant is the Sape Bar, bathed in colors, where you can savor heart-warming, bewitching cocktails. And in the early morning, the buffet breakfast treats us in fashion with an anthology of sweet and savory dishes washed down with excellent coffee. And one night later, with the feeling of well-being carried by the beautiful energy of this lively place and a caring team, welcoming and smiling, we leave absolutely delighted!
