Ah Paris. I love the city of lights to death and luckily, this isn’t my first time there to explore. Even though it isn’t my first time, it was a new first….the first time I have ever gone to Paris Fashion Week. Having gone to London Fashion Week, I thought I’d known what I was getting into, but I was dead wrong. Getting up and running around Paris is totally different from anything I had imagined, but you know what one of my comforts was? Getting to go in at the end of the day and stay at the Hotel Magenta 38 by HappyCulture and just sleep at the end of the night.
I love a good hotel. I really do. But wanna know what I love more? Charm and personality. The Hotel Magenta had both of those things and in just a few days, I fell in love. Not only is the location perfect for anyone taking the Eurostar, but within 5 minutes walk, you can be at a couple Métro stations!
Let’s talk about the charm. From the moment I checked in, there was a certain charm about the hotel. It’s not in one of the more touristy, busier areas of Paris and it’s a breath of fresh air. You can easily take the Métro from Jacques Bonsergent to quickly get into the heart of the city, but at the same time, staying in the area is perfectly fine, which adds to the charm. Not only do you get an amazing view if you have a room on the street view, but you get an added charming the hotel. This hotel is one of — in Paris, but one of — in all of France. The special thing about this hotel is that if I were to go into one of the other branches in Paris during my stay, I would be welcomed just as if I was at the Hotel Magenta 38. That’s a major part of the charm of the hotel because it’s not just one hotel, it’s like a family of hotels. That’s a major part of the charm that I won’t forget and one that I’m dying to come back and check out at a different location.
Personality is key in my opinion. If there’s no personality in a hotel, chances are….I probably won’t be back. That’s not the problem here at all. There’s so much personality at the hotel, I don’t even know where to start. The rooms are so comfy and I loved how nice everyone was from start to finish. Each member of the staff knows a certain set of languages, so no matter where you’re from, there’s always someone who can help you figure out where you want to go to dinner, how to get around the city, and so much more. The personality of everyone at the hotel as well as the personality of the hotel itself were so memorable that I honestly don’t know of a hotel I’d rather stay in now!
