Entirely outfitted by the famous fashion designer Christian Lacroix, Le Bellechasse Hotel is a charming and fashionable boutique hotel situated on the doorstep of the Musee de Orsay. The hotel embodies Lacroix’s signature colourful, haute whimsical style where he uses exotic antiques, sumptuous furnishings and bold fabric wall collages inspired by 19th-century engravings and motifs from ancient sculpture. Lacroix designed the hotel in keeping with its local Faubourg St. Germain surrounds, taking inspiration from local museums and elegant antique stores nearby, which he cites as being “some of the best in the world”. The 34 stylish soundproofed rooms feature bold colours and wild fabrics, each with its own unique design. Guests can choose between either the ‘Discovery Doubles’ with queen beds or the ‘Privilege Twin’ rooms, where rooms overlooking the street tend to be the most contemporary (reds, blue, yellow) and those overlooking the courtyard are more academic rustic (earthy colours). Thankfully, Le Bellechasse boasts a very affordable price tag, making this a great choice for the budget conscious traveler.
