IN A DECIDEDLY different but equally creative style, the Joyce is the newest fashionable place to stay in northern central Paris. The nerve center of the hotel is its spacious, airy breakfast room that juxtaposes fifties-inspired chairs with cushy automobile seats under a glass roof reminiscent of Gustave Eiffel. The quiet, mostly white rooms are filled with witty details, like photographic “bookcases” and decorative figurines from the Wooden Dolls series by Alexander Girard. The overall effect is simple, original and undeniably captivating.
