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
So you're going to Paris? And you want a memorable, amazing experience? Look no further than Hotel le Bellechasse. First, the location cannot be beat. You are steps from the Musee D'Orsay, Le Metro, many wonderful shops and restaurants, and the Seine. Second, the staff is friendly and welcoming. They were willing to research restaurants and make reservations (we were there during a French holiday, so it wasn't straightforward, but they got the job done.) They were willing to find a car service to drive us all over Paris and then to the airport. Their restaurant recommendations across the board were truly wonderful. Third, the breakfast in the lovely cellar was perfect. We could not have asked for a better place to stay.
Our first visit to Paris, and we found this lovely hidden gem! The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the decor lovely with a touch of whimsy. We stayed in the smallest of the rooms they offer, the Discovery. It was perfect! Just the right size for a comfy bed, a convenient bathroom and water closet, and a closet to hang clothing for a brief stay. A small refrigerator of treats was a nice touch, but not needed. Plenty of cafes near by and the Musee Orsay just across the street! We can’t wait to come back!
This hotel is most certainly unique, quirky and a feast for the eyes!
The staff are very friendly and helpful, although some are unsure of useful details.
The breakfast service and choices were amazing. Such a wide choice of tempting and delicious foods.
The staff kindly gave us a room with a bath upon request, which was very nice.
The coffee is the only thing I would say could do with improving, both in the bedrooms and at breakfast.
Overall a very relaxing stay, thank you.
Down the street from the Musay Museum, so we could walk everywhere or take the train/metro. Unique accommodations for each room. Staff was courteous and welcoming. Loved the toiletries. Breakfast was good, too.
My husband and I stayed at this charming , modern boutique hotel in the area of St. Germaine.
The rooms were comfortable and uniquely designed in the style of Christian Lacroix...Tres
The staff were very helpful, especially our front desk manager Stanislas. He gave us great dining advise as well as arranged for tickets to local museums, and
He was very patient and accommodating.
This is a lively area of Paris and would highly recommend. We will definitely return!
