Le Off, a four-star, floating hotel, has dropped its anchor in the Seine. The boat, which can hold up to 350 people, is 80 meters long and 18 meters wide, with 54 rooms, 4 suites, a bar, a pool, and an 80 meter terrace. The hotel was designed in 2013 by Christophe Gallineau, director of Citysurfing, and Gerard Ronzatti, Architect and president of Seine design. The wood, stone, steel, copper, zinc, leather and glass were selected with great care, and the structure is 100% Made in France. Stylist and designer Maurizio Galante, and trendsetter Tal Lancman designed two of the suites, applying their own personal styles to the colour palate and furnishings. The Sunset suite evokes its name, with dominating reds and oranges. The Silver suite uses a selection of Parisian-inspired pearl grey tones, interrupted only by the lemon yellow fixtures in the bathroom. The bar has 8800 mirrored tiles that reflect the Seine, copper furnishings and undulating panels. To fall asleep rocked by the waves, in a suite brushing up against the water, all one has to do is take the metro to the Gare d’Austerliz stop, and take a short walk to the Hotel Off.
