The huge windows and bricks are almost all that remain of the former textile factory which Hôtel Fabric now inhabits, in the heart of the dynamic Oberkampf area. The facelift included sturdy light fixtures and old furniture, and it's both charming and classy. Head down to reception to pick up an iPad free of charge and flop in one of the comfy armchairs before scheduling a session with the personal trainer. Then top it all off by stopping by at the hammam.
The 33 wooden-style rooms have a distinct New York loft vibe and are full of knick-knacks, which look as if they may have come from the nearby flea market. The lobby, doubling as the buffet breakfast room (€18) also shares the industrial atmosphere, cementing the hotel’s motto: ‘The soul of yesterday, the spirit of today’.
