With its covetable Left Bank address in the Saint-Germain-des-Prés area, this cozy 50-room hotel offers a peaceful retreat in the heart of Paris. Many rooms feature charming historic details like sloping beamed ceilings, wood paneling, and wrought iron Juliet balconies, accentuated by heavy toile curtains and tufted lounge chairs. In contrast, bathrooms are sleek and modern. Take breakfast in a sweet room with exposed stone walls that feels like a medieval cellar, then hit the atmospheric streets of the Latin Quarter.
In the Area
Long a haven for the city’s intelligentsia and artistic community, Saint-Germain-des-Prés offers a taste of the Paris of countless fantasies: historic bookstores, legendary cafes and proximity to some of the city’s most celebrated sights. Want to feel like you’ve stepped into a Robert Doisneau photograph? Linger at one of the world’s most famous coffee houses-Café de Flore, Les Deux Magots, and Brasserie Lipp-all nearby. Then head to Île de la Cité and Notre Dame in the 4th arrondissement to explore the landmark you can see from the hotel up close.
How to Get There
I stayed at the Belloy Hotel for two nights. The room was quiet at the weekend and despite being small, it was cozy and matching the decor of Paris.
We were 2 adults. Beds are very comfortable, shower with many amenities.
You also need to enjoy the Jardin Luxembourg near the hotel!
Recommend this hotel!
Just returned from several days in Paris in truly the tiniest room I have ever encountered, necessitating climbing over the bed to get to other side if a chair or suitcase was there. The good news was that the room was clean with a comfortable bed and excellent location. However the room was terribly inconvenient. While bathrooms were obviously new, there was no shelf in shower for soap or shampoo, no shelf or area near sink for toiletries, and in my room, no full length mirror. The staff at desk finally offered to change to a room with a mirror after a few days, but I was leaving by then. Additionally the lighting was terrible, clearly designed for a minimalist look with no overhead fixture but small lamps emitting very little light. Some of the staff were helpful, others not so much, one calling a taxi without informing us there was a fee, and one barely greeting us. The hotel has a very small reception area, not conducive to having a wine or relaxing at the end of the day. Although I guess reasonably priced for Paris, I would not choose this hotel again.
The rooms are small ! The elevators are small! My girlfriend and I shared a twin room for five nights. We had to get organized fast with our large suitcases so that we could move about the room. The beds however were very comfortable with beautiful linens and the location was great. We easily jumped on the metro just down the street and went all over the city. The staff was very helpful! We needed directions to Giverny to see Monet’s house and they provided maps and metro stop directions plus explained the Lazare train station that we would need to make the journey. They also recognized that our tour bus to Versailles seemed to be running late and made phone calls to the tour company. Overall, despite the small size the hotel was perfect for two middle aged women.
