The Parisian hotel business is a serious and often stuffy affair, but Hotel Les Deux Girafes spurned tradition to opened its doors in summer 2018 in the Bastille-République district with a whimsical theme and a laidback vibe.
Located in the cool 11th arrondissement, the four-star hotel is housed within the walls of a 19th-century furniture factory completely reimagined and renovated by AR Architecture and interior designer Sandrine Legret. Sleek color-blocked design, minimalist decor, and cherry-picked art dotting the walls throughout the hotel together present a comfortable Copenhagen-style interior and a perfectly chic place to stay that is way better than a home away from home.
Outside the 34 rooms is a lush, green patio and terrace at the center of the hotel with a giant 5-meter emblematic giraffe sculpture, created by the artists of Anathomie. The hotel also hosts a quarterly art exhibit on a 20-meter wall running from the lobby to the bedrooms.
