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.
