– BEST WESTERN HOTEL OHM BY HAPPY CULTURE –
Best Western Hotel Ohm by Happy Culture is a member of the Happy Culture hotel collection located in the 16th arrondissement. In April, I had the opportunity to spend 2 nights at Best Western Ohm by Happy Culture a 3-star boutique hotel in the beautiful city of Paris. Hotel life is quite the change from my usual hostel living, but on this trip I wanted privacy, comfort and guaranteed cleanliness.
Walking distance from the train station, a 24 hour kebab shop down the road and the Eiffel Tower glittering streets away; safe to say my stay was greatly located. If you read my post ‘How to Plan The Perfect Trip to Paris‘; you’d see that initially I was planning to stay at a hostel. I am glad I stayed at Best Western Hotel Ohm as it contributed to making my trip great.
I loveddddd my room, beautifully but simply decorated. When I walked in, I immediately noticed how much natural lighting there was. Natural lighting is super important to me, especially for filming.
Due to the floor I was on, I had to make sure I was dressed appropriately while infront of the windows as the neighbours could see me – haha! The bathroom was petit, but sized perfectly for a solo traveller like myself.
Who does not love a double bed all to themselves? Clean sheets, soft mattress, cosy duvet and fluffy pillows. All create the perfect night’s sleep.
In the mornings, we were greeted by the smell of fresh pastries and coffee in the breakfast area. What was handy, was there were signs that let you know when the breakfast area is at it’s busiest and when it quietens down. I made use of this by having lie-ins and strolling down stairs around 9am.
For breakfast, you have a choice between croissants, French bread, cheeses, cereals, a selection of meats, juices and spreads. Cheese is my best friend so I always had a cheese and salami in a baguette. Accompanying my sandwich were croissants, hot chocolate and grapefruit juice. I always left breakfast satisfied.
As I got to the corner before turning on the road of the hotel, I gasped and thought ‘I can see the Eiffel Tower!’. Guess who was like an excited little puppy? Yep, you got it right – me!
The Best Western Hotel by Happy Culture is located in the 16th arrondissement, a bus ride away from the centre of Paris. There are a variety of shops and restaurants walking distance away. With a bus stop located almost directly outside, and a Metro station down the road – travelling around Paris from the hotel is easy.
If you’re looking for a quiet neighbourhood, not to far from Paris’ city centre then Best Western Hotel Ohm is a great choice.
Every member of staff I came across at Best Western Hotel Ohm were so lovely and helpful. Firstly, I had a deadline the day I was meant to be leaving, but I forgot a plug adapter. I spoke to the manager and they had some at reception ready for use when I came back. The staff were also great for giving recommendations of great places to eat in Paris as well as directions on how to get there. Anything that I needed help with or even just to chat, the team were happy to. The customer service provided by the team at Best Western Hotel Ohm was great.
