    Hotel Bel Ami

    Located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in Paris, which has attracted Parisian intellectuals since the 18th century, Hotel Bel Ami calls one of Paris’ most storied districts home. Here you can enjoy the beautiful Rive Gauche, find some of the most complete and interesting bookshops in Paris, stop by one of the historical cafés, or simply get lost in the enchanting streets peppered with hidden restaurants and young designer boutiques around the church of Saint-Sulpice. Tucked away on a tiny side-street, Hotel Bel Ami brings together in its concept and design the most interesting characteristics of its setting: history, cultural life, and sophisticated choices for relaxing, shopping, and eating.

    Rooms & Suites

    Inspired by Hotel Bel Ami’s literary background as a 19th century printworks, the newly refurnished bedrooms have been conceived as elegant environments with a focus on minimalism. Here, one can easily settle in with a desk and bookshelf for the simple pleasure of reading or writing. The bathrooms, designed as luxury huts, are decorated in natural wood tones. The hotel’s architecture features two exposed external walls, giving each room a special light according to its direction and floor. For total quiet, all rooms have double-glazed windows.

    Philippe Maidenberg

    Housed in a former 19th-century printing works, in which the first copy of Guy de Maupassant's novel Bel Ami was printed, the building was redesigned by architect and designer Philippe Maidenberg. The surrounding quartier Saint-German-des-Prés slowly grew around the ancient Abbey during the 12th-Century. Today, the Abbey is perfectly integrated to the Hausmanian architecture of Paris, and is the heart of the quartier. Its ancient history and lively cultural life are perfectly reflected in the Hotel Bel Ami, located in the heart of this neighborhood. 


    Low-key Luxe

    Luxury fabrics and bright colors create an elegant, yet cutting-edge atmosphere. Hotel Bel Ami’s 108 rooms and suites feature natural grey furnishing offset by green and blue tones that allude to the evening hues of Paris. While at Bel Ami Café, the radiant colors, a collection of art books and video-screenings showing Parisian life and the natural light entering from a bay window, make it the perfect place to enjoy a plentiful brunch.
