OKKO Hotels

OKKO Hotels

The words 'boutique hotel' seem to be used a lot these days, and not always correctly. In the same way that ‘luxury’ is mis-used, so too is the word boutique. My belief is that boutique means small, eclectic, non-formulaic and tasteful. I expect it to be conceived by a taste-maker, maybe even be a little quirky. I think boutique infers 'personality. I admire certain hotel chains for the consistency they can achieve globally, they tend to be great for business travel and provide a welcome familiarity when travelling far afield. But I do love a boutique hotel that gets it just right.

 

OKKO HOTEL LYON

I first discovered OKKO in Cannes. I had booked it months earlier, on the strength of the imagery and description – a contemporary room with louvred walls on the en-suite, providing both privacy and light, and great design. It appeared bright, airy and contemporary. I was only staying one night and had arrived quite late, but I immediately loved the vibe. Things were being done differently here. It had authentic personality.

Having only experienced a glimpse of what they could offer, I would book again with OKKO, this time in Lyon for 4 nights. And that did not disappoint. A great location, a wonderful building with original features, and a diverse mix of guests from business people to foreign students to families, all enjoying the relaxed atmosphere.  

OKKO HOTEL LYON

OKKO Hotels are only in France, in key cities like Paris, Lyon, Cannes, Grenoble, Strasbourg with more on the way. They are design driven hotels in that you can feel the presence of the architect, that ‘clever use of space’, the flow and those perfectly poised lamps and chairs. It’s all in the design handwriting. The bedrooms are minimalist and smart, in clean colour palettes with clever design features integrated with functional needs. Streamlined, well thought-out and incredibly comfortable.

These hotels are big on hospitality - very welcoming and easy going. They have a warmth and a definite vibe. Each hotel has a ‘club’, which is a hang out style communal space, relaxed and open, designed to be lived in and enjoyed. You can also just sit and admire the decor. The Club hosts ‘apertivo’ each evening, where you can help yourself to drinks and snacks sourced from local, interesting and artisanal producers.

After breakfast and throughout the day, you have access to the ‘club’ where you can help yourself to coffee, tea, water and snacks. It’s a well-stocked fridge and open kitchen that feels warm and generous, making you feel absolutely at home, to come and go as you please.

 

OKKO HOTEL LYON

OKKO offer exactly what you want from a contemporary urban hotel – design, hospitality, comfort and above all, personality.
