The Hôtel Bel Ami, chic Parisian design hotel, has 108 guest rooms, most of which have been recently decorated by interior decorator Pascal Allaman in a pronounced graphic spirit, which echoes the literary character of the district. The hotel was formerly a 19th-century printing press, where the famous novel Bel Ami, by Guy de Maupassant, was printed (hence the hotel’s name).
The lobby and bar Bel Ami Café have been furnished by interior designer Géraldine Prieur and feature a bold ‘eye like an oversized mirror’ encircled in chrome reflecting the energy of the place. Also, white seats by local design agencies, bubble chairs — a contrast with the Macassar ebony alcoves, dark blue banquettes and a large bookcase, all in a Pop art aesthetic.
The hotel has 3 spaces, including two with daylight, for all types of private events from meetings to product launches and cocktail parties.The Salon Maupassant comprises a conference room (80 m²), a VIP area (12 m²) and a sub-committee room (23 m²), for up to 70 people in theatre layout. The Salon 1885 (23 m²), next to the bar, is an intimate and welcoming space for small groups (20 people for a cocktail party). Finally, the Bel Ami Café (115 m²) can also serve refreshments during seminars. Note that all the salons benefit from a high-quality catering service, available on request.
