Located in the Rue Charonne, a stone’s throw away from Bastille. 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 et 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.

Contemporary in its layout, warm in its the choice of living areas, affordable in terms of price and sincere with regards to environment awareness, HI matic is what was missing in quality city accommodation. It is adapted to current needs, ideal for green attitude addicts or more casual ecologically concerned individuals.

HI matic is a small hotel perfect for a city like Paris. It answers the need of the characteristics of urban tourism, for short and longer stays, a pied à terre for those who come regularly to the Capital for business or leisure trips. For a day or a year, you will want to go back to HI matic to enjoy a good night’s sleep ! Because everything there is simple, informal and friendly.

HI matic is 100 % internet. Like a reflex, you book your cabin on the web site created by the hotel without any intermediary, dealing directly and simply with the hotel. You are welcomed and guided in the same simple way. You live the experience in full autonomy as comfortable at the HI matic as you are with social networks.

HI matic has to be experienced as a direct link to the city. You can live your stay in a simple and casual way, free to move in an explanatory environment. Turned towards the exterior because of the lobby that is open to the street with large windows but also a protective cocoon in the interior. It allows you to rest in comfort and to regenerate while getting acquainted with Parisian life style. An hotel to rest, and catch your breath before plunging back into the urban rhythm. Staying at HI matic is enjoying the pied à terre experience in Paris. You move in with all the autonomy and freedom, you are never alone, for you are sure to meet friends in a new community with whom you can share each other’s experiences and tips about the city.
