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
I stayed at the Bellechasse with my husband for 3 days, during a quick trip to Paris. We couldn't be happier with the location. We were very close to many attractions we wanted to visit and just a few steps from the D'Orsay, good restaurants, and the train station you can take if you plan to visit Versailles.
Also, the impeccable hotel associate Perrine, helped us buying tickets, giving local tips and directions to Versailles.
The rooms were not impressive and very dark, but the location and Perrine's service deserve 5 stars.
My daughter and I stayed at Le Bellechasse as part of a European trip and everything was fabulous!
The location was perfect for travelling to/from with the metro, a train station, bus stops and batobus within a few minutes walk. Also close-by were plenty of options for food and drinks and the Musee d'orsay.
Our room was absolutely beautiful, very unique decor and an extremely comfortable bed.
I will finish by saying all staff were completely wonderful to my daughter and myself, so accommodating, so professional and a lot of fun, too!
Thank you Perrine for your lovely chats :)
I am so much more than happy to recommend staying at Le Bellechasse and will definitely be back to enjoy myself in the not-too-distant future
Trés bien et merci beaucoup, Le Bellechasse!
My husband, son and I stayed here during a recent visit to Paris. This hotel is a work of art! Our rooms were gorgeous! The hotel is in a terrific location near some really enjoyable cafes and restaurants, plus with in walking distance to museums and Paris highlights.The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. My husband left his phone in a car on the way to the airport and Perrine and Maelle went out of their way to followup up on finding it and getting it mailed to us. They were fantastic!
Thanks you for a great visit!
