This quirky boutique hotel will appeal to those with a strong interest in modern art. Owned by a well-known Chinese entrepreneur it is clear that the Hotel Éclat is a labour of love rather than a commercial enterprise. Located in a central tower block, views provide a strong sense of place. Every floor is dominated by works of art and sculpture and are themed – as are many of the suites. Facilities are minimal so this hotel lends itself to the busy sightseer rather than the indulgent hotel guest.
