Cosmopolitan flare and modern refinement in the ‘City of Light’

Named after a French term of endearment, the Chouchou Hotel presents a warm-hearted, vivid homage to Paris for guests and locals alike. Parisian native and interior architect Michael Malapert envisioned the hotel’s blue and white façade, public spaces and 63 rooms, and everywhere one finds delightful references to French craftsmanship, design and culture. Live entertainment, private spa rooms and a traditional French market cater to residents and visitors, who will surely enjoy the hotel’s central location.

Paris’s 9th arrondissement, famed for its world-leading opera houses and department stores, is a natural setting for a hotel so celebratory of the city’s past and present. Amid this glowing atmosphere of metropolitan elegance, it should come as no surprise to find the AXOR Showerheaven and AXOR Citterio M collection in the hotel’s bathrooms, encased in a resplendent Brushed Bronze finish.

AXOR and Chouchou: eye-catching in every measure

Designed for the metropolis, AXOR Citterio M expresses the urban aesthetic of refinement and sophistication. The collection’s reduced, slender forms and understated presence help transform the Chouchou Hotel into a retreat from the vibrant streets beyond. In selected suites, AXOR Citterio M appears alongside the AXOR Showerheaven; an overhead shower with three-spray types for a tailored, deeply immersive experience.

The Brushed Bronze finish, one of many exclusive AXOR FinishPlus surfaces, further elevates the AXOR Overhead Shower and AXOR Citterio M collection, creating striking accents against the hotel’s calming palette of blue and white tones.

A house of many influences

The Chouchou Hotel convinces with an aesthetic bordering on whimsy—tempered by a meticulous curation of objects and influences. Two Junior suites, named after songs by Edith Piaf and Serge Gainsbourg, showcase vintage photos and bold splashes of color. Books line the corniced walls of the main suite, L’Arrache- Coeur, which references a noted 1950s novel. Downstairs, Le Marché has established itself as local hotspot offering French cuisine during day and a food market at night with ham/cheese and fish “planches”. And, at the Bar Guignette, guests can enjoy a handcrafted cocktail and live entertainment under a glass atrium. The overall effect is at once recognizable and subtle; a charming esprit of bright lights and bold colors that always hints at something more, and which guests will embrace again and again.

AXOR FinishPlus

Whether brushed or polished to absolute flawlessness, AXOR FinishPlus surfaces offer the perfect final touch for any luxurious bathroom. The finish not only impresses with its elegant look, but is also hard-wearing, durable and scratch-resistant. Another step for AXOR to offer maximum possibilities of individualization.
