After 3 years of work, Hotel Bachaumont, a **** Hotel has finaly opened its doors!
Located in the Montorgueil area, this 1900 building offers 49 rooms all created in a very parisian style : black and white, wood mouldings, cornices, wooden floor ... Almost all furnitures are bespoke and designed by Dorothee Meilichzon.
The hotel belongs to Samy Marciano (La Clé Group).
A restaurant and a bar are located on the ground floor, they will be run by the experimental group together with Gregory Marchand (Frenchie)
A tale of friendship and community is behind the revival: people, regular visitors to this vibrant
neighbourhood where the true heart of Paris still beats, friends and successful designers with
a vision of hospitality oozing that unique “je ne sais quoi” that hits you as soon as you walk in.
Samy Marciano is a local fashion retailer and tireless traveller with hospitality experience in London
who has collaborated with Anouska Hempel and Ron Arad. He wanted “to pay tribute to the
arrondissement I love so much, to give something back to a neighbourhood which has given me
so much, to give it a place which is an extension of itself” as he puts it.
He joined forces with designer Dorothée Meilichzon, magic happened and she spent over 3
years working on the major project. London, Paris, New York and Ibiza, she worked alongside
the guys from the Experimental Group on their projects. Hers is a hybrid style, a mishmash of
curves, simple colours and eye-catching patterns.
To breathe life into this characterful hotel, restaurant and bar, it’s only natural that the guys from
the Experimental Group should get involved. Childhood friends Olivier Bon, Romee de Goriainoff
and Pierre-Charles Cros, who cemented their style with a bar on Rue St Sauveur, have managed
to make their mark on the Parisian and international hospitality sector.
The rest is history
« The idea was to put a fresh twist on classic Paris chic and create a contemporary hotel that’s true to its city and neighbourhood. » Dorothée Meilichzon
The lobby’s impressive Carrara marble floor, Parisian carpentry, mouldings, arches, mirrors reminiscent of the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles and bas-relief logo on the walls set the tone: An elegant, refined and warm space bathed in light.
The architectural motif taken from the building’s main door has been updated to adorn the floor, carpets and is printed on the bedside tables. The ground floor, bar and restaurant have been designed to bond with the street and Parisians. The deeper you go into the hotel, the more intimate you get as you get closer to the bedrooms.
All the furniture has been custom made such as marble and premium wood desks, head boards (fabric by Frey, a local institution on Rue du Mail), counters, bedside tables, retro wall lamps, Stilnovo lighting, a medley of Art Deco inspiration.
The 49 rooms in five categories have been based on four colour combinations. The large and
light bathrooms pay tribute to the Roaring Twenties with their vintage taps and lavish tiling. The
balconies and terraces in some rooms have magical views of Paris’ rooftops or the glass roof.
4 suites on the top floor are named after local streets: Montorgueil, Montmartre, Louvre and Bachaumont, designed as artist studios
