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
Me and my family got stuck in their elevator on Sat night for 2hrs.
The receptionist had no idea how to handle the situation.
When we eventually got out he blamed me for getting in w too many people (which was not true!!)
I then found out the restaurant of the hotel was bringing the check to my dinner guests while I was stuck in the elevator!!
No one apologized, or reached out to me, so on Sunday after lunch I decided to check out and told them to get in touch.
Well it s been 36hrs and I am still waiting...
I travel a lot, usually stay in high end hotels, may be that is my mistake but this place lacks professionalism and does not know how to treat a client.
Beautiful hotel in very cool area. Best thing about hotel is location and the restaurant and bar. Room is small and we stayed in suite. But great location and pretty GQ smooth. I liked it and would stay there again.
The hotel is in a great location, the interior is pleasant. The room I stayed in (a deluxe) was very clean and nice, with a fairly large bathroom but no bathtub. Most staff seem very unprofessional, the restaurant around tea time was nearly empty yet three staff did not manage to take orders, to bring a slice of bread (!...) for what was listed as a platter of cured meats but turned out to be a few slices of so-so ham, sadly presented at almost 20 euros..not really ok at this point.it's simply way overprices for what it is so would not book again
A really fine place to stay. The location is excellent, within walking distance of most of central Paris. The service is exceptional. The bar and restaurant are very convivial and worth visiting in themselves.
The Front of house team were lovely and gave a personal, welcoming service. The hotel is beautiful on the inside and out. The environment is wonderfully relaxed. Great location. The restaurant is delicious though attention to service lacking compared to the rest of the hotel. The rooms are also very small but had everything needed. It was a very comfortable stay. Thank you
