Living like the residents of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, while enjoying all the services of a five-star hotel: such is the experience reserved for guests staying at the Hôtel Bel Ami. Housed in the former printing works that produced the first copy of Guy de Maupassant’s famous novel “Bel Ami” in 1885, the hotel presents contemporary design in its 97 rooms and 5 apartments. Channeling a resolutely Parisian spirit, decorator Pascal Allaman devised a very graphic concept based on calligraphy and the former printing business. The added bonus? The option of hiring one of the five private apartments at the Hôtel Bel Ami, whose 70s-style furniture stands alongside pieces of more antique design. The Hôtel Bel Ami also has a bar, a café, a fitness gym and a spa, where the treatments are provided by Maison Flamel. Every facility – from the conference room to the Carré VIP area or the smaller Salon de Marelle – is equipped to host group meetings. In all, Bel Ami is a cozy, elegant hotel in one of Paris’s most distinctive districts.
