Hotel EKTA in Paris Baby!

Yes, Paris is always a good idea!

A few days in Paris with my mother, I took the opportunity to plan rendezvous without having to run in any direction. We needed a hotel with a central location …

As the excellent Ekta Hotel: 60-70’s stylish sharp design by Jean-Philippe Nuel and Natasha Stojkovic. A very relaxed friendly atmosphere with a TOP team! Fantastic hospitality: we immediately felt like at home!

This little gem-hotel with 20 rooms and 5 suites (opened last spring), is ideally located in a quiet street just a minute walk from the Champs Elysees, between Etoile and George V. What could we ask for more?

Couture Spirit

We access to the lobby by the staircase inspired Chanel – rue Cambon. So chic! And I easily imagine crossing Karl, lol! On the walls, “very Courrège” fashion photos by Benjamin Deroche (photos below).

The living room

My favorite common space. Comfortably sit down in one of Pumpkins yellow sofas designed by Pierre Paulin, facing the built-in fireplace in the black and white graphic library, I take a look at a beautiful fashion book with Karl, Carine Roitfeld and so on …

I also really like the Japanese style lighting by Marset, games of mirrors and flat screens scattered in the hotel (photos above).

Other details I liked (pictures below): 1. photo on mirror in the small elevator that leads to the bedrooms and suites (read my post of our suite). 2. Hearty delicious breakfast in the lounge area and comfortable mirrors tables (3). 4. Sorry not sorry … The little black jacket, Chanel.

Hotel EKTA: design, chic & convivial

Parce que Paris est toujours une bonne idée!

Quelques jours à Paris avec ma mère, j’en ai profité pour caler des rendez-vous sans avoir à courrir dans tous les sens. Il nous fallait donc un hôtel avec une situation centrale…

Comme l’excellent Hotel Ekta : design pointu et élégant années 60-70, signé Jean-Philippe Nuel et Natasha Stojkovic. Une ambiance très relaxe et chaleureuse grâce à une équipe TOP! Superbe accueil : nous nous sommes senties tout de suite bien!

Ce petit bijou-hotel de 20 chambres et 5 suites (ouvert au printemps dernier), est idéalement situé dans une rue calme, à une minute à pied des Champs Elysées, entre Etoile et George V. Que demander de plus?

Esprit couture

On accède à la réception par l’escalier inspiré de la maison Chanel rue Cambon. So chic! Pour un peu j’imaginerais croiser Karl, lol! Sur les murs, des photos de mode “très Courrège” de Benjamin Deroche (photos ci-dessous).

Le salon

Mon espace commun préféré : m’enfoncer dans un des canapés jaunes Pumpkins de Pierre Paulin, face à la cheminée encastrée dans la graphique bibliothèque noir et blanc. Et feuilleter nonchalamment un beau livre sur la mode, Karl, Carine Roitfeld…

J’aime aussi beaucoup les luminaires japonisants Maranga de chez Marset, les jeux de miroirs et les écrans plats disséminés dans l’hôtel (photos ci-dessus).

Ces autres détails qui m’ont plu (photos ci-dessous) : 1. photo sur mirroir dans le petit ascenceur qui mène aux chambres et suites (lire mon post sur notre suite). 2. Délicieux et copieux petit déjeuner pris dans l’espace salon, sur une des confortables tables miroirs (3). 4. Sorry not sorry… La petite veste noire, Chanel.

Departure to Croatia: Pozdrav Zagreb, Hi Zagreb!

Pozdrav Zagreb 

Hello Zagreb! A few days before visiting Opatija, I arrived in the Croatian capital that I did not know: yes, my first time in Croatia!

Very very curious and eager to discover this new destination. Like everyone else, I had in mind some pictures of Dubrovnik, but absolutely none of Zagreb, Opatija and Krk that I will visit too …

I landed at the small airport of Zagreb at 6 p.m (picture1). In the car that leads me to the hotel, I am very impressed with the cleanliness of the streets, not a paper, nothing! A kind of European Japan, with plenty of green spaces. It’s spotless everywhere, awsome! The night is dark when I get to my hotel.

The Esplanade Zagreb

The hotel is a palace built in 1925 to accommodate the passengers of the Orient Express from Paris to Istanbul. It sounds very Agatha Christie, doesn’t it? I really enjoy these kind of old palaces, haunted by famous people. Josephine Baker and Woodie Allen stayed here and so many others too! Upon the entry, you can feel the glamour (pictures 3, 4 & 5).

The decoration is inspired by the Art Deco, with lots of marble, gilding, chandeliers and giant mirrors. I really like the atmosphere of the lobby and before checking my room (post to come), I quickly shot these pictures. Last picture: the carpeted corridors leading to the rooms. If you follow this blog, you know how much I’m obsessed with the hotel carpet! Lol! To be continued …
