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
Very nice and stylish hotel with the the right amount of boutique feel. Feels exclusive but still very genuine and friendly! Awesome location, best in Paris. Gets a bit lower rating on sleep quality due to firm beds, I am a soft bed kind of guy... We have stayed here several times for that perfect romantic Paris getaway and we will surely be back soon again.
This hotel is at a perfect location!! Close to many tourist site, yet hidden away from the crowd. Everything was perfect. Plus, the price is great for the value. Will definitely stay here again when we return to Paris.
My fiance and I had a great stay here over Memorial Day weekend. We selected the hotel because of the great price and prime location within walking distance of so many great areas and attractions. The staff was friendly, the hotel was clean and stylish, and had a great bar/restaurant scene. Our room was very small but was well equipped with everything we needed especially since we were out and about all day. We booked on hotel tonight and felt the value was great. Would stay again.
A classy place with style - and superb staff. They excelled at finding solutions for our needs and did so with a smile. Food and bar offerings are superb - creative menu choices, from what I consider the best individualized scrambled egg options at breakfast to superb cooking (sashimi-quality fish and juicy chicken) to creative drinks from the bar. No need to leave Hotel Bachaumont - though other options are easily reachable. And you are just the right distance from say Les Halles/Beaubourg or the Louvre. We will be back!
This is a true jem in a perfect location. Located in a small street between endless cafés, restaurants, boutiques and supermarkets. Stunning design, excellent trendy bar and restaurant and excellent service. The rooms are relatively small but very well designed and decorated. The suites are way more spacious if you’re willing to pay more. A walking distance to the Louvre, Palau’s royals, Le Halle, Norte Dame and Saint Germain de pre. Perfect.
