The Hoy Hotel shares the perfect concept to getaway from the chaotic and wonderful city of Paris. After some amazing visiting in the city, you’re able to rest for a few hours in the most peaceful hotel ever, right in the heart of Paris. Today, Paris Design Agenda would like to show you all the amazing features of this hospitality project.
Meet the Hoy Hotel, a TV-free and in-house yoga studio hotel in the heart of Paris. Behind this innovative project is hotelier Charlotte Gomez de Orozco, which shares the main goal of channeling a sense of serenity inside this Parisian hotel, which is decked out in natural hues and neutral tones.
Situated in Paris’ ninth arrondissement, the Hoy Hotel has been designed to be a “true hideaway” from the hustle and bustle of the French capital. It may be confusing and frustrating to circulate around the busy city of Paris, so the stay at this hotel would be the absolute perfect choice for a romantic trip.
According to the hotel’s founder, Charlotte Gomez de Orozco, “Hoy’s philosophy and purpose are to be a caring and soothing place, a door away from the street dim, for the traveler to reconnect with their energy. The spirit of the place is comforting, simple and allows visitors to slow down and take full advantage of the present moment, without outside distraction”.
De Orozco developed the concept of the hotel with the help of Sabrina Goldin and Stéphane Abby, a pair of restaurateurs who already oversee two Parisian eateries. The goal was to create a feng shui dynamic in all the 22 guest bedrooms. Energy, harmony, and furniture hold hands in this scenario, and the result is absolutely astounding.
Appliances like televisions have been purposefully omitted and instead replaced with stretching bars, which guests can use to limber up. Some of the larger suites also have yoga hammocks suspended from the ceiling. The big interest in yoga meant the founder would also ensure a full-scale yoga studio was included in the Hoy Hotel.
