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
Hotel Bachaumont was gorgeous and an amazing stay. My husband and I stayed for just 4 nights on a quick trip from the US. It was our first time to Paris and the hotel did not disappoint - our stay was a major factor to us falling in love with the city. If we could we would come back and stay here every year. The staff was extremely polite and helpful and fluent in english, with lots of great recommendations. The room was absolutely lovely - upscale with quintessential french modern finishes. We loved that our room had a traditional french "balcony" and kept it open most of the time as the weather was perfectly temperate. The neighborhood is very lively and there was a lot of street noise most of the night, but I think it would be much quieter if you requested a room facing the courtyard (and, it didn't keep us up). The fitness room was very sufficient with cardio and weights and water. The hotel is less than 10 minutes walk from the subway / airport line, and 10 minutes walk to the Louvre (less to Grand Palais). It was a great launching point for all of the main sights in Paris. There are ample delicious traditional french brasseries/cafes all along rue montmartre and rue montorgueil nearby. I picked this hotel based purely on the price, photos online, and proximity to train and the Louvre and was flabbergasted at how amazing it was. The hotel went out of their way to put special touches on our stay with a map of the city including exclusive discounts, and a gift box of french cosmetic products. If you can't tell by now, we loved our stay at Bachaumont.
I have already recommended this incredible hotel to a co-worker who plans on coming to Paris in November. I stayed with my friend Kitchy (Carla Crouse) and this hotel would be my go to when I come to visit again. The hotel is gorgeous and beautifully appointed. The staff is incredible and we fell in love with Andre and Claire at the front desk who assisted us above and beyond getting us tickets for various things we wanted to do. The recommendations were spot on! We also fell in love with Jonathan and David and the bartender staff. What an amazing trip and to be treated like royalty in this beautiful Bachaumont surroundings was icing on this cake.
We were a family of two adults and two kids staying here. We stayed in the signature suite which was perfect for the four of us. The location is incredible and the room was stylish, comfortable and peaceful.
