The brainchild of French fashion designer Christian Lacroix, Le Bellechasse Saint-Germain is a 33-room spot on the Left Bank. The building itself dates back to 1840, but the interiors have been flamboyantly reimagined by the master couturier. Bedding down here feels like staying in an elaborate work of art. Close at hand are the banks of the Seine, the Musée d’Orsay and the Louvre. Here, Paris is at your (incredibly stylish) doorstep.
Bed and Bath
All 33 guestrooms are rich in character and color. Think sumptuously rich gold flocked (or burnt orange and black striped) wallpaper in the Discovery Rooms, and ceiling murals, such as the giant butterfly prints in some of the Original Rooms. There are clashing patterns and fabrics at every turn. Bathrooms come with either a rolltop bath or a shower, and some of the tubs are in the bedrooms (although concealed by a curtain). All rooms are soundproofed to ensure a good night’s sleep even with the bustling city right outside your window.
In typical Parisian style, the dining room is bijoux and serves only breakfast, which you can also order to enjoy in bed. The hotel’s petite drinking spot, the Butterfly Bar, is open from 3 p.m. to 11 p.m. And of course, the bustling Left Bank is right on your doorstep.
How to Get There
The location of the hotel is perfectly good as it is nearly 50 meters away from musee d'orsay and there are some good restaurants nearby.
The staffs are really nice guys and they fulfill every needs for us.
The matter was the rooms in the backyard which was not my taste.
As it was cold outside, almost nobody came to the backyard for coffee or meal, but I think the visitors surely spend a time during summer time late at night which may cause trouble for those who reside in the 3 rooms in the backyard.
The breakfast was not very good and better to say, the were some routine everyday stuff to eat. There was nothing spcial for each day as you expect parisian chefs may offer.
Loved this little hotel. It's cute, the staff is very friendly, and the location is ideal for doing all the touristy stuff. It's literally next to the Musee D'Orsay, and just across the Seine from the Louvre. So if you're a museum lover, this is a good spot. It's pretty much dead center in the middle of Paris making travel very easy and affordable. I used my Chase points to book this hotel and the deal was better than those listed on regular sites- so if you have Chase check that first. Very small hotel tax ($3 euro/day per person) - and all hotels charge this.
My sister and I stayed at the hotel in early December. Of course the location is great, but the best thing is the staff! They were simple amazing. We were there during the Saturday when everything was closed due to the Yellow Vest protest. The staff went out of the way to help us and were super accommodating. The review was long overdue!
We really enjoyed our stay at Le Bellechasse. Location cannot be beaten, meters away from the Orsay museum and Solferino metro station. Nice rooms, well appointed and very quiet. We did not have breakfast but there are plenty of great bakeries nearby
We stayed in this lovely spot during a recent stay in Paris. The staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were to die for and the location - just steps form the entrance to the Musee d'Orsay and close to other major Paris attractions.
