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
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.
Hotel Bachaumont was the perfect get-away-point for our weekend in Paris. The interior is beautiful, the breakfast was very nice and complete and most of all, the location is perfect! You are in walking distance from the Seine and The Louvre. If you are in for a longer walk, the Eiffel tour is easy to get to if you walk beside the water. We will visit again on a future trip to Paris!
The hotel located in the heart of this vibrant quarter, yet the near area is quiet from traffic and noise.
Staff are great and welcoming
Nice bar and great ambiance . Rooms are always small in Paris, but enough space for the functional purpose
Very pleasant feeling
We have been here last year and enjoyed and We for sure coming back
Excellent hotel with very friendly staff. Have stayed here before and will do again. Great location with lots of cafe's and shops nearby. Have not tried the restaurant as yet but will do so in future.
Tube station underneath. The room was vibrating every time the train was passing by. Sleepless night. Windows not well insulated.
Good location if you are in Paris for the weekend. Won’t stay there again
