Located in the central 2nd arrondissement and walking distance from the Louvre, Pompidou Centre and the Seine riverside, Hotel Bachaumont is a suave Art Deco escape that recalls the Roaring Twenties. Surrounded by classic Parisian boulangeries, cafes and bars, while the local area once fell into disrepair, today the cobbled Montorgueil streets exude charm and heritage. Recently renovated with the stunning Haussmann façade restored to its original glory, the Hotel Bachaumont boasts 49 rooms, four of which are apartment-sized suites, and all decorated in a sleek Art Deco palette. Using pattern and shape to elevate the finish, the level of detail in the rooms and public areas is extraordinary, with herringbone flooring underfoot and glorious tilework in the bathrooms. For a beautiful outdoor breakfast spot, punt for a room with a balcony too.
