OVERVIEW

TOO is so-called because the sensational views from this new skyscraper hotel draw a gasping 'that's too much!' reaction. Close to the River Seine in the developing south east of Paris, its 139 spacious rooms, plus a bar, restaurant and spa, are set on the 17th-27th floors with masterful designs by Philippe Starck.

OUR REVIEW

THE NEIGHBOURHOOD

You're the 13th arrondissement, close to where the boulevard Périphérique crosses the River Seine. The hotel crowns the 400ft high west tower of Tours Duo, a pair of 'wonky' glass skyscrapers designed by Jean Nouvel. While the building is unmissable the entrance in rue Bruneseau is deliberately discreet with no sign - look for number 65. Public transport links include Bibliothèque François Mitterrand Métro station, Tram 3B and RER line C.

By plane: flights from London or Manchester to Paris Charles De Gaulle take 1 hour 15 minutes and the hotel is 40 minutes' drive. On-site parking costs €35 per day. Book flights to Paris.

By train: Eurostar from London to Paris Gare du Nord takes 2 hours 20 minutes and the hotel is a 25-minute drive. Book trains to Paris.

THE LOOK AND FEEL

Designer Philippe Starck has created an enchanting 'castle in the sky' with large, peaceful, minimalist rooms set on the 17th-24th floors. High-speed grey metal lifts and bare concrete corridors lead to enchanting and witty spaces for sleep and play. In summer this is a magical spot to watch the sunset over the city.

THE FACILITIES

The friendly staff seem happy in this cutting-edge hotel with its buzzing bar and restaurant. There is a small fitness centre on the 17th floor and Starck-designed hand weights are provided in the rooms. Guests have complimentary use of the Press Reader app which lets you download a wide range of newspapers and magazines.
