Located at the foot of an elevated Parisian metro station, the First Hotel attracts the eye of passers-by with its jet-black façade. Once inside, however, you’ll find yourself in a pastel-coloured world as reflected in the boudoir-style breakfast room, but rest assured that black is still the dominant design motif of the rest of the hotel, including the rooms.
With whom ?
John Steed and Emma Peel.
The rooms :
Designed by architect Lawrence Maugoust, the rooms at the First Hotel are full of playful objects, such as suspension lamps in the form of a bowler hat as worn by John Steed in The Avengers, or 007-esque gun lamps by Philippe Starck! Women would feel equally welcome there in the room, especially in the bright and stylish bathroom.
The restaurant :
There is no restaurant at this hotel, but its breakfast room, which is bathed in a lovely light pink, is the ideal place to have tea, to read and to relax, and can appeal to both genders.
The district :
Just a few minute’s walk from the Eiffel Tower, the hotel occupies a prominent location in a typically Parisian area.
Some rooms enjoy views of the Eiffel Tower.
