Housed in an 18th-century hotel that had been shuttered since the 1970s, the revived Bachaumont exudes retro-modern glamour thanks to Dorothée Meilichzon, the design maven behind some of Paris’ most stylish hospitality openings. The Art Deco-inspired interiors feature nuanced shades of blue, gray, and green, plus minimalist furnishings like skinny-legged marble tables and globe pendants with smooth metal hardware, and all 49 rooms and suites are equally stylish with wall-to-wall padded headboards backing cushy platform beds, pretty wooden desks, and white-tiled bathrooms. Aside from its excellent location on a quiet tree-lined street near the Louvre, one of the highlights of staying at Hotel Bachaumont is the eponymous ground-floor restaurant, run by a team of trendsetting restaurateurs (owners of the nearby Experimental Cocktail Club, which brought craft cocktails to Paris in 2007). Set under a stunning glass roof, the neo-brasserie serves updated classic like langoustines cooked over charcoal and baba au rhum marinated in a citrus syrup. After dinner, stop for a cocktail at Night Flight bar next door, a cozy wood-paneled den inspired by the novel Vol de Nuit by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry.
In the Area
The hotel is in an area known as Sentier in the 2nd arrondissement, a former manufacturing district that’s evolved into one of the chicest neighborhoods of Paris. Tucked between the Louvre and the Marais, Sentier’s cobblestones streets and quaint alleys are lined with a mix of old-school boulangeries and stylish new boutiques and cafes. Browse the staggering collection of French fragrances at Nose, an artisanal perfumery and beauty store. Then stop for a matcha latte at the Japan-inspired Cafe Kitsuné nearby, which edges the gorgeous gardens of the Palais Royal. Come night, check out David Lynch’s nightclub Silencio, a dramatic space featuring DJ sets, art exhibits, film screenings, and more (some events are only for members). Going sightseeing? The majestic Musèe du Louvre and the romantic Pont Neuf are just steps away.
How to Get There
Amazing and stylish boutique hotel in the center of the city. Stylish and functional rooms with great bath rooms. I also loved the bar and the staff there. One of the best boutique hotels in Paris and great value for money.
Really nicely designed hotel with a great cocktail bar that gives it some real atmosphere.
Bathroom is on the small side but otherwise a nice room with cute Juliette balcony and fresh, bright decor. Wine in the room and some snacks but no proper mini bar but drinks can come up from the cocktail bar downstairs. I'm a big breakfast lover and the buffet doesn't disappoint!
We just finished our 4 night stay at Hotel Bachaumont and just wanted to express our appreciation.
The hotel was everything we needed and so much more. The staff at the front desk were so helpful in assisting with booking spa reservations. Housekeeping quickly remade our room when we missed housekeeping one day. They replenish 2 water bottles daily which is also very appreciated
We dined at the restaurant every night of our stay as a nightcap for the night. The staff was very attentive and the food was excellent, in particular, the dessert.
The bar and bartenders at night flight were amazing as well. They were funny and enjoyable.
The room was clean and spacious. The area of the hotel was perfect. There were so many cute shops and restaurants in the area. The hotel has a very intimate comforting vibe. The breakfast is just enough to get the day started.
Everything from start to finish exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much to all the staff for making my first Parisian stay so memorable.
It was truly an amazing hotel experience.
We loved our 3 night stay in this central Hotel. The location is excellent with plenty of Restaurants and shopping nearby. The Chataley Mall is only a 10 min walk.
The Hotel itself has a very good Restaurant, we had an excellent dinner (see separate Review); the service is personable and professional and the rooms are nicely designed within quality beds, pillows and a first class shower.
Would certainly return for another stay.
Check-in was easy. My room was ready and I arrived a little early. The room was gorgeous and very clean. Loved the colors. The view into the center of the hotel was beautiful and quaint. I was here for a business trip and we met in the bar our first night. It was a very cosy atmosphere, warm and inviting. The bar staff was super friendly and the drinks were expertly crafted. We spent a few nights after dinner here in the bar and were taken care of. One of the bartenders knew my name and would ask how I was doing. Very nice personal touch. The bar was also a nice mix of locals and guests.The room was perfect. Linens impeccable and loved the hairdryer. Much better wattage than my travel one! The breakfast buffet in the mornings was nice. Loved the little scrambled eggs in its own copper pan. Espresso was available if requested. The fresh juice was a nice touch as well. Wished I would have eaten here for dinner as it was quite a popular place for the locals. Would definitely stay here again. I would say, I stayed on the 5th floor and did feel a slight hum and vibration from the vibration of the metro underground. This did not affect my comfort in anyway. I had colleagues on the 1st level and they did not feel affected either.
