A fashion-forward hotel deisgned by Christian Lacroix in a quiet Left Bank neighborhood.

Review

Fashion designer Christian Lacroix has long represented a wilder side of French fashion, and with the Bellechasse Saint Germain, he has brought his wit and whimsy to a second Parisian hotel. (Le Petit Moulin in the Marais was his first.) Like his clothing, these rooms are not for the shy or for the subdued. Enormous colorful butterflies soar across some ceilings and the reception desk in the lobby. Silver metallic wallpaper illuminates bathrooms. Forget the hotel room as a soothing oasis or home-away-from-home. These rooms make bold, unforgettable statements of awakening artistry. “I am designer. Hear me roar!” They seem to shout. The exuberance will either amuse or annoy guests. The Left Bank location in the 7th arrondissement is close to museums (Rodin and d’Orsay) and the Seine but more residential in feeling than many of the hotels in the heart of Saint-Germain. Lacroix drew on the neighborhood for inspiration and insists that the lobby area immediately reveals his intention by “blending between the old and the new and with just a hint of the future.”

Who Should Stay

The bold colors, textures, and furnishing in the rooms will appeal to those with a wilder sense of design.
