Welcome to South Bastille where restaurants, organic shops, store concepts, specialized book stores are blooming. Young designers meet here, young chefs open their restaurants, you can cruise around and meet your friends. The area is as popular as it is trendy, a condensed version of Paris in Rue de Charonne.
This is where HI Matic has been established, a new urban eco-logding concept.
Matali Crasset has collaborated once again with Patrick Elouarghi & Philippe Chatelet to inject a new vibe in the Paris lodging. With 42 cabin rooms, HI Matic combines the codes of an urban hotel with that of a country lodging. Economical, ecological and automatic, this warm cocoon in the heart of the city revives the best Japanese Riokan, the youth hostel or the rest house. An ecological accommodation with a precise choice of materials (wood, rubber, natural paintings) that entice areas of conviviality and sharing.
