The spacious lobby, closed off by a crystal dome installed 19 metres from the floor, retains the old counters from the bank around a large mosaic; at present the hotel's bar and restaurant are found behind them. Philippe Starck's transparent 'Ghost' stools and the smoke-blackened wood of the seats designed by Maarten Baas are focal points of this interior design.
Located in central Paris, this design hotel is only 250 metres from Le Peletier Metro Station, providing access to the Louvre Museum and Gare de l’Est Train Station.
