A portion of the rooms, painted and decorated by a rotating roster of local artists, makes it one of the most unusual places in the city.

The hostel style of the Hotel des Arts does not draw customers with its luxury or amenities; instead, people come for the location and avant-garde art.
This bargain find... distances itself from the competition by including a visually stimulating dose of artistic license... Quite possibly the best budget hotel in the city.
