GETAWAY: The heart of Paris, Hotel Bel Ami
Situated in the heart of the 6th arrondissement - Saint Germain in Paris, The Bel Ami hotel gather’s contemporary interior design concepts with curated cultural elements. As part of the B Signature Hotels Group, this design hotel is ideally located nearby to iconic Parisian hotspots: Les Deux Magots, Café de Flore and the Brasserie Lipp – offering history and refinement.
The 115-room hotel attracts a sophisticated crowd that isn't inclined to linger. The lobby sets the designer tone featuring large scale paintings and books on 20th-century fashion designers such as Elsa Schiaparelli and Paul Poiret, alongside French design classics, Bauchet and Vicari.
Upon arrival, greeted by a warm and friendly team, and given a short but sweet tour of the hotel. We were provided with the Saint Germain suite overlooking Rue Saint-Benoît and most importantly, every carnivore’s dream, Relais de l’Entrecôte. Once we arrived at the suite, we were welcomed with a handwritten note from the hotel manager alongside a bottle of champagne and chocolate that sweetened our palettes and added character to our stay. Our suite design was contemporary, clean-lined and displayed soft hints of pistachio and cream. The White Company products were carefully placed around the bathroom as were Yves Saint Laurent design books, allowing us to understand the hotel’s creative vision– and after opening one of the bedroom windows, our ears were immersed in ‘La Vie En Rose’ which played on the accordion on the enchanting streets of Paris.
