Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Great location in the bustling 11th arrondissement
  • Comfortable beds feature crisp, white bedding
  • Sleek decor is great for lovers of modern design
  • All rooms have LCD flat-screen TVs and free Wi-Fi
  • Windows allow a lot of natural light
  • Small bar and lounge, with light eats, on-site

Cons

  • Some rooms have partially open bathrooms, which lack privacy
  • Little storage space for luggage
  • Few amenities; the hotel is mainly a place to sleep
  • All-white decor may feel jarring to some

Bottom Line

Geared toward a younger crowd, this all-white 29-room boutique hotel fills a traveler's basic needs for a nice place to crash while visiting Paris. The 11th arrondissement location -- one of the most densely populated urban districts in Europe -- is packed with dining and nightlife, and close to the Notre Dame and Opera de la Bastille, among other sites. The rooms, while on the small side for a Paris boutique hotel, offer comfortable beds and sleek, contemporary design. The bathrooms feature modern fixtures and glass-enclosed walk-in showers -- though some are integrated into the bedrooms and thus lack privacy. The hotel features minimal, modern white design throughout -- which can be considered either sleek and sexy, or cold and harsh, depending on your taste. LCD flat-screen TVs, free Wi-Fi, and a small bar with light eats are the extent of the hotel's amenities -- but for a hip place to call home during your stay, BLC Design Hotel is a good bet.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

Close to two airports, and within walking distance to the district's shopping and dining

BLC Design Hotel is in the city's 11th district, a lively neighborhood with tons of restaurants and boutiques, and close to some popular tourist attractions, such as Notre Dame. Younger crowds might appreciate that area's bar and club scene, as well as proximity to metro lines that make getting to popular destinations easy and efficient.

Paris is one of Europe's most densely populated cities, and is currently one of the world's most important business and cultural metropolises. Known as "The City of Lights" for its growth during the Age of Enlightenment, Paris is home to some of the world's most luxurious fashion (Hermes, Dior, Yves Saint Laurent), iconic museums, and structures such as the Eiffel Tower and Arc De Triomphe, as well as major media and business outlets.

  • 24-minute drive to Paris-Charles de Gaulle Airport
  • 24-minute drive to Le Bourget Airport
  • 3- to 5-minute walk to dining and shopping
  • 4- to 10-minute walk to surrounding metro stations
  • 4-minute drive to Opera Bastille
  • 10-minute drive to Notre Dame
  • 14-minute drive to Tuileries Garden
  • 15-minute drive to Jardin du Luxembourg
  • 18-minute drive to the Eiffel Tower
  • 20-minute drive to Arc De Triomphe
